This is unbelievable..!Pregnant woman rejects breast cancer treatment to save her unborn baby (photos)
A pregnant woman diagnosed with stage-three breast cancer accepted death so that her baby could live. Nguyen Thi Thu Hien from Duc Pho District in Quang Ngai Province turned down chemotherapy which would have meant giving up her unborn baby.
Hien and her husband got married Nguyen Tan Thanh 18 years ago. The young couple later left their hometown in search of treatment for their infertility in the central coastal city of Quy Nhon.
Hien and Thanh gave up after multiple unsuccessful in vitro fertilization attempts they could barely afford. Hien was admitted to hospital after she slipped while delivering noodles to diners where she worked. Doctors diagnosed her with stage-three breast cancer and announced her pregnancy during that same hospital admission.
Hien’s only hope of saving her life was to have her breasts removed and to give up her unborn baby and undergo chemotherapy. But she refused instead begged to save her baby, even if it meant death on her part.
Hien became paralyzed after the sixth month of her pregnancy and at 8 months, afraid that she might not make it as she was becoming weaker by the day, the sacrificing mother asked to have her baby delivered through C-section.
The child weighed a mere 1.8 kilograms was born in the utmost happiness of the mother. After she recovered from the hour-long operation, the first thing Hien did was fumble for her baby, saying in tears,
"I do want to live like everybody else, but I can’t lose my child, for I wouldn’t be able to live if I did. The only thing I regret is not being able to breastfeed my baby, as my breasts have already been removed. " she said
Omg Kidnapping..Lagos places security agencies on red alert ...Partners FG, Ogun State on border patrol
Assures residents of safety of lives, property.
The Lagos State Government on Monday assured residents of the State that it was working hard in conjunction with security agencies to address the recent cases of kidnapping and armed robberies in some parts of the State, just as it disclosed that security intelligence has revealed useful leads towards identifying notorious syndicates behind the heinous crimes and their accomplices.
In a statement issued by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tunji Bello, the State Government said it is alive to its core responsibilities of protecting the citizens as the administration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode will not shirk from its function of protecting the lives and property of its citizens in every part of the state.
The government, while reassuring citizens of their safety in the State, said it was collaborating with security agencies to put in place upgraded security measures that will guarantee safety of lives and property.
“We would like to inform Lagosians that we are saddened by the recent cases of kidnappings that appear not to be unrelenting. But we wish to assure that the government will not fold its arms and allow a few evil doers to prosper at the expense of innocent citizens.
"We are working together with both Federal Government and Ogun State Government in particular in the volatile areas that have been identified. We will spare no effort in bringing every criminal gang to book," the SSG said.According to Bello, the response of the State Government
“Will be swift, total and reassuring to the public in sending a clear signal to all and sundry that Lagos State will not tolerate any form of criminality."While sympathizing with the families of victims in Iba and Ikorodu, the Secretary to the State Government urged residents of the state to go about their normal businesses without any fear or panic as government has placed security personnel on red alert throughout the State in a bid to checkmate this menace.
He advised Lagosians to be very vigilant and security conscious as intelligence reports have shown that most of these heinous crimes are perpetrated through recalcitrant elements who have infiltrated the state and are carrying out this act in conjunction with friends, family members or close associates of the victims.
Bello reiterated the commitment and capacity of the Akinwunmi Ambode administration to go after and suppress any act of crime and criminality in any part of the State, urging residents to take advantage of the state’s toll free lines: 112 and 767 to report any case of crime or unusual/suspicious movement or strange faces in their neighbourhood to security agencies.
While also noting the recent massive security equipment and vehicles donated by the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode-led administration to security agencies to beef up security in the state which has considerably curbed armed robbery cases, Bello said the State Government in consonance with the Police and other security agencies in the State will continue to do all within its means to halt the trend of kidnapping in the State and bring perpetrators to justice.

"In view of Senator Melaye’s antecedent particularly in the House of Representatives where a brawl led to the untimely death of a member, I have decided not to ignore his threat to my life. Therefore, I'm compelled to urge you to use your good offices to provide me with adequate security.

A man has admitted murdering a single mum he met on a dating website at the home she shared with her five-year-old son. Miles Donnelly, 35, strangled 44-year-old Usha Patel and stabbed her 16 times in the stomach in a "drunken rage" after she had got undressed. The couple had arranged to have sex together on the evening of October 7 last year, having met online around seven months before.
They had both taken their clothes off when Donnelly attacked the mother-of-one, causing her injuries to her mouth as he tried to stop her from screaming while he strangled her, the court heard. Ms Patel was discovered the next day when the boy's grandfather arrived to pick him up and was told his mother was still sleeping. Her battered body was found amid drink bottles and glasses inside the flat.
A manhunt for Donnelly was launched after police found his house keys inside Ms Patel's home and matched forensic samples on a wine glass. At about 3am, he had gone to the west London home of 43-year-old Rosie Ferrigno where he stayed for the next 36 hours.
Police said that at some point he made sexual advances towards her, and hit her on the back of the head with a stool when she refused. Donnelly was arrested on October 11 last year after he phoned police and told them where he was.
Donnelly, who had a lifestyle of drink and drugs and a long criminal history, had denied murder and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
But on the day of his trial, the defendant, of Hall Place, Paddington, west London, pleaded guilty to the charges. Sentencing was adjourned until Thursday, when the facts of the case will be outlined by prosecutor Simon Denison QC.

Lazy ladies will resort to sleeping with men and try to defend the shameful act with poverty. Blessing is a lady who decided to be responsible and she settle for a job, difficult as it is, rather than messing up.
After managing to finish secondary school, Blessing is now a full time mechanic and she's proud of what she's doing. This Facebook user, Raymond Oche, who met her in Abuja shared the experience:
I met Blessing (A MECHANIC) and I was touched, by the fact that a secondary school graduate who had no hope to further school sought to learn mechanic for 4 years and is on her own now, a life better than anything else that depicts high level of immorality.
As can be seen, she is changing shocks for a Toyota Camry (muscle), and I tell you its not beans! Please share this till someone in position or our churches or mosques finds this touching enough to help establish her and promote what she does and encourages other women and youth.
I salute your person BLESSING.

“He followed him on the opposite side of the road, using the cars for cover.
“He usually has a dog with him, but this time he did not.
“The first open door the guy found was Jose’s basement gate. That’s not unusual because his staff are in and out all the time and the basement front door is often ajar.
“It was perfect timing when the Portuguese maid screamed, ‘What are you doing here?’ — because at that moment the security man blocked the getaway.
“The burglar was threatening to punch him but he stood his ground. With nowhere to go, the burglar just smoked a cigarette.
The Burglar was jailed for 4 weeks for attempted Burglary.
As many as 27 top Military men accused of masterminding the failed Military coup attempt against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government will appear in court on Monday. Over 6000 soldiers have been arrested and stripped almost naked as President Erdogan refused to rule out the death sentence for those involved in the ill-fated takeover attempt on Friday.
The army personnel look to have been stripped of their uniform as they lay on the floor on an indoor basketball court in Sirnak, east Turkey, handcuffed as officials loyal to the Government look over them.
Only the 27 top military officials will see lawyers, the other 6000 arrested soldiers will not be able to see or meet lawyers until they arrive in court.
Hundreds of judiciary members have been removed since Friday's uprising, which left at least 290 people dead and more than 1,400 injured in a chaotic night of violence.
On Sunday, speaking at a funeral on Sunday held for some of those killed during gunfire -- including the brother of his chief adviser, Mustafa Varank -- Erdogan said he did not rule out bringing back the death penalty for the coup's perpetrators.
As the crowd chanted "we want the death penalty," he said, "we can't ignore the people's request in a democracy -- this is your right."
"This right has to be evaluated by the appropriate authorities according to the constitution and a decision can be made," Erdogan said in the address broadcast live on TV.
"It is not anything ordinary that my young brothers lay under tank pellets; this is a manifest of faith," Erdogan said.
He also asked supporters to stay on guard.
"You should fill the squares. This isn't a 12-hour operation. We will continue determinedly."
A pilot has told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFFC) how he flew a former Minister of State for Defence, Mr. Musiliu Obanikoro, with N1.299 billion cash for Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose. Capt. Ahmed Bashir Borodo said the cash was wrapped with green military tarpaulin bags before it was loaded onto the chartered aircraft registered HS125-800 5N-BMT, owned by Gyro Air Limited. He said the bags were so heavy that only three people could carry one at a time.
Also, the General Manager of Gyro Air Limited, Mr. Jide West, has disclosed that about $25, 200 was paid for the two chartered flights from Lagos to Akure and Akure to Abuja. EFCC detectives grilled Borodo and West at the weekend. The session was part of the ongoing probe of Fayose for allegedly receiving the N1.299billion slush funds from Obanikoro through his associate, Abiodun Agbele. About N4.745billion was paid into Obanikoro’s company Sylva Mcnamara’s office by the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) for the 2014 Ekiti governorship.
The slush funds had been traced by EFCC to Obanikoro, Fayose, three firms and a former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Otunba Iyiola Omisore. Borodo said he only flew the plane in line with the directive of his airline’s management. He said: “On the 17th June 2014, I was advised around 0700 hours by my Flight Operations Department that we would be operating a chartered flight to Akure from Lagos with estimated departure time of 0830 hours.
“The client was Musiliu Obanikoro, Minister of State for Defence at that time.
“I arrived at the airport at about 0730 hours to prepare for the flight along with my colleague, Captain Olubiyi Famuyiwa and cabin attendant Uyi Okoro. Minutes later, the minister’s aides came to the aircraft with some bullion vans. They started offloading the contents, which were big green tarpaulin bags. Military bags precisely.
“The ADC to the minister was dressed in Navy uniform. This is all I can state now.”
The pilot recalled that the bags were so heavy that three people carried one. He said: “When we noticed that only about three people could carry the bags because of the weight, we told them that because of the weight, we could only take about eight to nine bags.
“The minister who had disembarked at that time from his vehicle pleaded with us but we said our aircraft was too small to carry all the bags. We loaded the bags. The minister, his ADC and a friend boarded the aircraft and we departed to Akure , Ondo State.
“ When we arrived at Akure Airport, some soldiers came and there was a bullion van as well to carry the baggage. We departed empty to Lagos on the 17/06/14. On the 18th of June 2014, we were sent from Abuja to Akure to pick Mr. Musiliu Obanikoro and take him to Abuja. He boarded without any luggage with his ADC and we proceeded to Abuja to drop him.”
West gave an insight into how the chartered flight service was procured at $25,200.
He said: “On the 15/16 of June 2014, Lt. Adewale O Eruka called me for a flight to Akure scheduled for 17th and 18th of June 2014 on the instruction of Musiliu Obanikoro. I contacted operation and the flight was carried out as detailed below: 17/6/14 – Lagos – Akure – Lagos
“I was informed that they carried the bags to Akure with some passengers as indicated in the manifest.
“On 18/6/14 , the flight was Abuja – Akure – Abuja to pick up the passengers from Akure back to Abuja. The aircraft was empty from Abuja but brought the passengers back to Abuja. Passengers as indicated in the manifest.
“The flights were paid for; $25,200 was paid for both flights and this was arranged by Lt. Adewale. The crew on the flight on both occasions were: Capt. ‘Biyi Famuyiwa whose service has been terminated by Gyro Air Ltd; Ahmed Borodo the second pilot who accompanied me to EFCC today; and Uyi Okoro the cabin crew who resigned her appointment from Gyro for further studies abroad. Resignation and termination letters attached.
”I also have a text on my phone dated 19/6/14 from Lt. Adewale detailing how payment will be made for the chartered service.”
As at press time, there were indications that some officials of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and Nigeria Air Management Agency (NAMA) may appear before the EFCC, which is intensifying its probe of Fayose.
“We are likely to invite more people for interrogation,” a source said.
A member of a four-man robbery gang, Nnamdi Onu, passed out when he was hit with the charm he prepared for victims.
His gang specialised in attacking commuters at Anthony Bus Stop in Lagos State, disposing them of cash and valuables. He was arrested, Friday, following a foiled operation.
Onu and members of his gang stormed the bus stop at about 5.45a.m., where they robbed passengers waiting to board buses to their respective destinations.
Eyewitnesses said at about 7a.m., they snatched a bag from a lady and were fleeing the scene, when Onu was apprehended by a mob. He was said to have brought out a red amulet from his pocket and threatened to hit whoever got close to him with it. The mob retreated out of fear, thereby making way for two other members of the gang to escape.
Unfortunately for Onu, he was apprehended by a team of policemen on patrol. He was said to have slumped when one of the policemen hit him with the charm.
Speaking with Vanguard while being paraded alongside other suspects at the command, the Junior Secondary School 2 drop-out said: “I was lured into morning raid by my friend, Wasiu. “I used to be a private guard at a site in Ogun State. The charm was meant for protection, in case of any attack by intruders. If used on anyone, the person will faint but won’t die.
“There are some that can cause an opponent to run mad, but I decided to use this because I did not want anybody’s blood to be on my head. “Wasiu only invited me to come to Anthony Bus Stop, but he did not tell me he was going for an operation. When I saw them snatching bags from female victims in particular, I could not turn back because I was afraid he could harm me.
“I have brought shame to my father, who has already made arrangement for me to start apprenticeship in fashion designing by Monday (today), since I could not conclude my secondary education due to the demise of my mother, who was solely responsible for my education.”
The suspect, according to the Commissioner of Police, would be charged to court soon, adding that he was among 43 suspects arrested in the state in one month.
