DHL truck kills LASU student, company denies ownership of vehicle

Stanley was a final year student of Lagos State University (LASU) before he met his untimely death when crushed by a truck belonging to DHL while standing by the road side close to the gate of the university. The driver was said to have attempted to run away from the scene of the incident before he was stopped by LASU students and secured the truck. 

Stanley's brother, John found out that his brother had a slim chance of survival when rushed to a nearby hospital but later gave up when the driver of the vehicle wouldn't return after 2 hours he was asked to get a vehicle to convey Stanley to a specialized hospital for proper medical attention.

Actress Tonto Dikeh pregnant?

A picture of Tonto Dikeh was recently posted on instagram showing the actress with a baby bump. The purported account was posing as if the picture was posted by Tonto herself, captioning the picture as:

I knw most of ya may b wondering yhv bn taken lot of head shots lately i will tell u why, n d season s becuz God haz been faithful and his  been keeping to his words in Genesis 3:16 #EasyLionEasyTiger  #YOLO @Pokolee #ThankGod4Growth.''
However, a close source to the actress has described the pregnancy claim as nothing but false.
“No she is not pregnant, and even if she was, she wouldnt announce it like that”. said the source.

Police officers threaten to go on strike over unpaid salary

This is an outcry from over 15,000 Nigeria police officers over unpaid salary of about 13 months. Read the full story as reported by Punch below...

More than 15,000 police officers have threatened to either go on strike or disrupt the March 28 and April 11 general elections.

They were made up of officers who were promoted from the rank of sergeant to the rank of inspector and those promoted from the rank of inspector to the rank of assistant superintendent of police in December 2013.

The policemen, according to seven of them who met with a Punch correspondent in Abuja on Tuesday, said that they were promoted since December 2013, but that the police authorities had refused to pay them their new salaries.

They said that after waiting for the police authorities for over a year, they were surprised that they were paid their new salaries with the January 2015 salaries, wondering why the money meant for the 13 month was not included.
