South Africans Hijacked A Nigerian’s House


The Nigeria Union in South Africa has protested against the hijack of a house belonging to a Nigerian Baptist missionary in that country.

Mr Theodore Ezeunara, Chairman of the union in Johannesburg South, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday that persons claiming to be members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), a political party, allegedly took over the house.

He said that the EFF members chased away the tenants in the building and brought in new persons.

He said that efforts made by the owner of the house and the union to stop the hijacking fell on deaf ears.

He said that the union had lodged a complaint with the police on the hijacking and trespassing on a property.

The owner of the house, who did not want his name mentioned for safety, said that he bought the property in 2011.

“The house is a bungalow, comprising of four bedroom flat, two-bedroom guest house and two rooms boy quarters.

“Last week, some people came to the house, claiming to be members of a political party, drove away the tenants, alleging that they (tenants) were foreigners.

“It is clear that this is a case of hijacking and trespassing on a private property,” he said.

Mr Adetola Olubajo, President of Nigeria Union, said that the case had been reported to the national secretariat of the union.

“We will hand it over to our national legal adviser to take it up,” he said.

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
