The music star took to her Instagram page on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, where she shared the sad news.

“Yesterday morning I was laughing with a friend saying “seriously though how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling the whole audience I am pregnant”. By yesterday afternoon I was dreading the thought of getting through the gig without breaking down,” she wrote.

“After going for my 3rd scan and being told there was no longer a heartbeat 💔 This morning. I feel like I have no control of my emotions. I may regret posting this. I may not. I actually don’t know. What I do know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because I’m avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me.”

Police detain 3 Dowen students over Sylvester Oromoni’s death

Odumosu also tells Punch that two other students of the school linked with the assault, are at large, with those in police custody helping the Command with information on how to track them.

Oromoni’s death has captured the attention of an entire nation, with the Lagos State government announcing the closure and sealing off of the school last week.

The father of the deceased boarding student had alleged that the JS2 student died from injuries sustained during an assault by five of his colleagues who were hell bent on initiating him into a cult group.

Dowen had however insisted that Oromoni died after sustaining injuries during a football game.

“It is still an allegation until we conduct our investigation. We just started full investigation yesterday (Monday).

“Two out of those mentioned in the viral video are at large while three of the students are helping us to get others.

There are allegations that Oromoni was bullied and beaten to a coma before his death.

News of his passing sparked outrage on social media platforms, with over 100,000 persons signing an online petition seeking for the arrest and swift prosecution of those found culpable.

Oromoni’s family has petitioned the Chief Coroner of Lagos State, demanding a coroner inquest into his death.

Dowen College parents announce candlelight tribute for Sylvester Oromoni

“The Parents’ Forum is organising a candlelight on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 by 6pm at Dowen College, 18, Adebayo Doherty Road, Lekki, Lagos State,” a statement reads.

12-year-old Oromoni was allegedly tortured to a coma by some of his school colleagues who were hell-bent on initiating him into a cult group.

Dowen denies this version of events however, saying the student died from injuries sustained during a football game.

The incident has sparked nationwide outrage and the Lagos State government has since sealed off the institution, pending the outcome of investigations.

“Our hearts go out to the family of the deceased and pray God to give them the strength to bear the irreparable loss.

“As parents of Dowen College students, we are still in shock and could not come to terms with this incident and the accounts so far provided by the school management, students and the media,” a statement from the parents reads.

The rest of the statement reads as follows:

We are, however, temporarily relieved by the swiftness with which the authorities intervened and commenced investigation towards unravelling the cause of Sylvester Oromoni’s death.

We urge the school management team and other stakeholders to fully cooperate with the authority in the ongoing investigation.

We, therefore, say justice for Sylvester is justice for all.

On our part as parents, we will work more closely with the school (management/board) to ensure that necessary measures are put in place to prevent recurrence of this unfortunate incident and stamp out bullying in any form from the school.

We will also continue to appeal to parents, through all available means, to show more interest in what their children do and who they associate with in school and at home.

We appeal to the public to see this incident as an inflection point, not only for Dowen College but also other schools in Nigeria, as recent events have shown that bullying, molestation and other vices among students are common in our schools.

Therefore, we rely on the authorities for justice regardless of the social status of whoever is involved.

What happened to Sylvester could have happened to any other child in the school. To many of the traumatised students, Sylvester was a classmate, a roommate, a schoolmate or a friend.

We, therefore, earnestly ask for a resolution that will bring some relief to the bereaved family, other parents, students of Dowen College and the public.

These should include a change of the school management and hostel teachers, installation of Closed Circuit Television cameras in all strategic places and overhauling of the school security system.

The Parents’ Forum is organising a candle light on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 by 6pm at Dowen College, 18, Adebayo Doherty Road, Lekki, Lagos State.

The lighting of candles is to pay tribute to a life ‘passed’, and keeping the light burning signifies that the memory still lives on and burns bright.

The candle light, no doubt, shall promote reflection and signifies remembrance of a life cut short in its infancy.

We pray the Almighty God to comfort the Oromoni family during this trying period

Rio Ferdinand says Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw might struggle under Ralf Rangnick

Wan-Bissaka was on the bench against Crystal Palace on Sunday, having just returned from an injury layoff while Shaw was sidelined due to a head injury. Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles replaced the duo in the United line-up and performed admirably in the win over Palace.

Ferdinand believes that Wan-Bissaka and Shaw will struggle under Rangnick as the tactician prefers ball-playing defenders, an advantage that Dalot and Telles have over the sidelined duo.

Ferdinand explained that being good in the defensive phase is not good enough for a defender under Rangnick, as the 63-year-old manager prefers full-backs who can give a steady output on the ball also.

Rangnick got up to a good start in his United career, nicking a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace courtesy of a Fred winner. The Red Devils are next in action on Wednesday 8th December against Swiss side Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League, having already qualified for the Round of 16.

Miles has no idea there’s a multi-dimension portal open above him, through which Gwen Stacy is staring at him.

She thinks they are good, but her face changes after she spots one of herself. After the awkward moment, Gwen invites the grounded Miles Morales/Spider Man to see firsthand the villain and plot ahead of them.

Let’s seal cracks in our party walls now – APC South Africa

Babarinde, also a member of Elders Council APC Diaspora Leaders, expressed concerns over recent defections of some aggrieved members to the PDP.

“The recent APC primaries conducted nationwide leave much to be desired.

“Most of the candidates were headhunted, handpicked, and conscripted which made old committed members be aggrieved because it negates the principle of democratic practice.

“This has given birth to dissenting voices and agitations among the ranks of APC family; there are splinter groups all over Nigeria which APC need to manage carefully otherwise it may consume the party,” he said.

Babarinde said that Lagos State had a fair share of such political turbulence, where certain groups, like the Lagos4Lagos Movement, came up to challenge the status quo in Lagos political culture.

He said that democracy is about conflict resolution, deepening public debate, and settlement based on utilitarian principles devoid of self-gain, vested interest, fame and all activities that will promote public service.

“However, when a group decides to align and join forces with the opposition, then that is when political prostitution and party switchers set in,” he said.

He said that APC and PDP were “strange bedfellows” and it would be a disservice for a party with no ideological similarities and philosophical resemblance to cohabit just because of minor disagreement.

Babarinde added: “This is another warning to APC in Nigeria and especially in Lagos to settle their differences without allowing it to degenerate out of control as soon as possible.

“No matter how trivial the influence of the aggrieved members in Lagos politics is, this is not a positive development in whatever form and attention are needed to curb this disintegration.

“Those who can still be enticed back to the fold should be encouraged to return and be rehabilitated.

“We cannot afford too many cracks in our fold as the opposition is desperate to take advantage of our mismanagement of success.”

“We are all members and should have faith and trust in the leadership,” he said.

On the Direct Primaries clause in the 2021 Electoral Act Amendment Bill awaiting Presidential assent, Babarinde said that it would boost the confidence of party members.

We, the APC faithful in the Diaspora are ready to put in our best efforts for a stronger and stable APC for better performance in 2023.

“This is the reason we are in support of direct primaries for electing candidates that will represent our party.

“No matter the amount of resources for this exercise, the advantage over-weighs whatever cost implications.

“We can also deploy the use of technology in the process to reduce cost and increase credibility and integrity of the process,” he said.

The APC chieftain said that the chapter was looking forward to the inclusion of diaspora members in the National Working Committee (NWC) and National Executive Committee (NEC) of the APC during the party’s forthcoming national convention.

Court to decide Atiku’s citizenship eligibility status Feb 21

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that a group, an Incorporated Trustees of Egalitarian Mission for Africa (EMA), in a suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/177/2019 had sued Atiku, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) as 1st to 4th respondents respectively

EMA is challenging Atiku’s eligibility to contest for presidency on the grounds that he was not a Nigerian citizen by birth.

The group asked the court to hold, among others, that considering the provisions of Sections 25(1) &(2) and 131(a) of the constitution and the circumstances surrounding the former vice president’s birth, he cannot contest for the top office.

NAN also reports that the Adamawa State Government, through its Attorney-General (AG), had, on July 27, sought an order of the court to be joined in the suit.

The court, in the motion dated April 26 and filed June 24, granted the prayer of the AG of Adamawa to be joined in the case as 5th defendant.

The Adamawa government had told the court that Atiku was eligible to vie for the office of the president.

It said Atiku, against whom the suit was primarily directed, is a citizen of Nigeria from Adamawa who had been elected as a governor of the state in 1999 and served as the vice president of the country between 1999 to 2007.

When the matter was called on Monday, Counsel to the plaintiff, Akinola Oladimeji, informed that the matter was slated for hearing of his originating summons.

“We have amended originating summons in response to 1st to 5th defendants counter affidavits,” he said.

Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, who appeared for Atiku (1st defendant), said a notice of preliminary objection was filed.

Jegede, after withdrawing two motions earlier filed, one of which challenged the jurisdiction of court, urged the court to dismiss the plaintiff application.

He argued that a previous case relied upon by the applicant in filing the suit did not relate with the matter at hand.

The senior lawyer also argued that the matter was already stale as it was tied to 2019 election, in which his client vied for the election, challenged the poll and was unsuccessful.

He said this defined the futility of the plaintiff case.

Corroborating Jegede’s submission, counsel to the 2nd defendant (PDP), Adedamola Falokun, said hr also filed a notice of preliminary objection.

He described the matter as a preelection matter, urging the court not to waste its time on it.

“I stand in alignment with the learner SAN that this matter is stale.

“They filed this before 2019 election that the 1st defendant (Atiku) should not be cleared.

The lawyer argued that there was no single line in the plaintiff application that specifically stated on good ground why Atiku could be debarred from being cleared from contesting election.

He urged the court to dismiss the suit with punitive cost against the plaintiff.

Also lawyers to the 4th (AGF) and 5th (AG of Adamawa) defendants also presented their arguments in the matter.

The plaintiff lawyer, Oladimeji, disagreed with counsel to the defendants.

He said the suit sought to know the citizenship of Atiku.

He clarified that the suit was not a preelection one.

“For the purposes of clarity, a preelection matter is filed by an aspirant in an election.

“The plaintiff is not an aspirant, it is only seeking an interpretation into the questions raised,” he said.

Oladimeji argued that even though Atiku was said to have been born in Nigeria, he was not a Nigerian citizen.

He stated that for the fact that the mistake had, been done in time past did not mean that this should continue.

He said the interest of the group was for the court to interpret the constitution within the ambit of the law.

Justice Ekwo adjourned the matter until Feb. 21, for judgment.
