IMO: OSU CASTE SYSTEM ABOLISHED IN NWANGELE COMMUNITY

Abba Community in Nwangele local government area of Imo State has made a remarkable milestone in the evolution of its culture as it abolishes the Osu Ume Caste system

The Osu caste system is an age-long practice that is still observed in some parts of Igboland which discourages social interaction and marriage with a group of persons called Osu.

These group of persons are dedicated to the deities of Igboland and are considered as inferior beings or slaves and are usually separated from the Nwadiala or diala.

With this development in Abba community, every Osu has been declared free born and equal. They will no longer be seen or treated as slaves or inferior. As a matter of fact, social interaction and marriage with them are now encouraged without further discrimination.

How I was poisoned… John Okafor (Mr. Ibu)

In a video trending online, popular Nollywood comic actor, John Okafor, alias ‘Mr Ibu’, recounts his personal staff poisoned him. Mr Ibu says he almost died after taking the poison, but God saved him.

He says his stomach grew bigger after he was poisoned, but that he has been taking medicine so it has reduced to the point where he can see his feet.

The film star was tricked into going to Nnewi, Anambra state. On getting there, he was beaten to a pulp and given poison to drink.

“They took me to Nnewi, saying we had a show. They held me there and beat me up. They beat me and then inserted poison in my mouth and ran away, leaving me there. It was my boys and dancers that came and carried me home. It was in Enugu that I woke up. God said no, you are not going yet.” he said

Speaking further, the actor said;“Here in my office, they brought the first poison, I took it. I was falling around and nobody came to ask. Even the workers did not enter here even though they were hearing me fall around. I vomitted something in my bathroom. They gave me the second one, The people that gave me are the people working with me. I swallowed another one unknowingly because I never suspected them until when God opened my eyes. They paid them and gave them enough money to make sure they eliminate me.

“All these plans are from Enugu, my towns people and age grades that are surprised that I can own some things, build some houses, buy house in Lagos. They asked them to go and kill me.”

Okafor, however, noted that he has left the case for God to judge.

I drink cow urine daily – Bollywood star

Published

on

Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has revealed that he drinks cow urine daily, joining a growing number of Indians who believe it has medicinal benefits – including against the coronavirus.

Kumar is considered a staunch supporter of Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party, which has earmarked millions of dollars for research into products using bovine waste to cure diseases like diabetes and cancer.

There is no comprehensive scientific evidence of any medicinal benefits, but several politicians from Modi’s right-wing ruling party have advocated using the dung and urine to cure coronavirus.

The 53-year-old actor was promoting his appearance on a show with Britishtelevision adventurer Bear Grylls, in which they drink tea made from elephant dung in an Indian tiger reserve.

“I was too excited to be worried. I have cow urine because of ayurvedic reasons every day, so that was okay,” Kumar said on a social media live chat posted Thursday.

Many Hindus believe cows are sacred and drink its urine for medicinal benefits.

Modi’s government created a ministry of ayurveda and yoga, with Modi suggesting in June that yoga could help create a “protective shield” against the novel coronavirus.

COVID-19 has infected 4.6 million people in India and killed 76,000.
