Peter Young, an official of the Federal Road Safety Commission, says his divorce-seeking wife, Dorcas, does not deserve custody of their two children as she had already abandoned them.
 
Young who testified in a divorce suit filed by Dorcas before a Nyanya Customary Court, Abuja, said that the petitioner abandoned the children.
 
Young said, “The reason why I cannot give her my two children is that on May 2, she ran away with one man and did not come back.

“When she eventually came back, she came with her brothers to pick her belongings. I and my uncle were on our knees, begging her to at least go with the little baby that was one year old.

“She refused, saying that her brother said she should pick only what belongs to her. That the children are my blood, so they belong to me.

“I was on my knees crying and begging her, but she refused; now she is coming and want them to be in her custody.”
 
The respondent told the court that he was capable of taking care of the children and would not let them stay with Dorcas.
 
He did not oppose the divorce but urged the court to grant him divorce and custody of the two children of the marriage.
 
Dorcas, the petitioner, denied all the allegations and prayed the court to grant her custody of the children.
 
The Judge, Jemilu Jega, ordered the respondent to bring the children before the court on Sept. 28 for further hearing.

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
