A married woman, Patience Ibrahim, on Thursday dragged her husband, Talpha Atega, before a Customary Court in Jikwoyi, Abuja, for allegedly calling her a ‘snake’.
In her complaint, Patience told the court that Mr. Atega often referred to her as “a snake from the marine kingdom”, aside from failing in the discharge of his responsibilities as a husband.
“My husband refused to take responsibility in the house as a husband and a father; I am the one doing everything, house chores, payment of house rent, feeding, and all others.
“When I talked to him about the matter, he will start insulting me; he said I am ‘a snake from the marine kingdom’”.
”I want a divorce; I cannot continue to live with someone who has this kind of notion about me,” she fumed.
She also begged the court not to grant custody of the only child of the marriage to her husband, on moral grounds.
She expressed fears that the child might pick certain unwholesome behaviors from him.
However, in his defense, the respondent, Mr. Atega, denied all the allegations and begged the court not to grant his wife’s request for divorce.
The Judge, Mr. Labaran Gusau, has adjourned the matter until March 30, for judgment
Young Achievers Awards Honors Kayode Alfred’s Aristocrat Clothings
… As the Most Valuable Outstanding Indigenous Clothier of the Year
Kayode Alfred, a name that has become synonymous with celebrity journalism and style. A few years ago, Alfred was a notable celebrity journalist with a natural flair for capturing the best moments with dynamic words and sentences.
However, it eventually came to light that his unique style was not limited to reporting celebrity stories, but also fashion. Thus was born the title that has been used time and again to describe him: celebrity journalist and style genius. As 2023 reaches its first peak, the genius of Alfred has once again shined out in the recognition of the Young Achievers Nigeria Awards.
The 11th Young Achievers Nigeria Awards just concluded a few days ago. The event took place at the prestigious Ibis Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, and had dignitaries from every notable industry and sector in attendance.
However, the main session of the event included the recognition of Nigeria’s top talents in several reputable industries and institutions. This is where Alfred took the stage by storm.
In the fashion category, Alfred’s Clothings brand, Aristocrat Clothings, was nominated alongside other very popular brands like Mudi Africa, Farrione Creations and Designs, and Booms Clothings.
However, when the award for the Most Valuable Outstanding Indigenous Clothier of the Year was announced, it was Alfred’s Aristocrat Clothings that got to dazzle in the limelight. Alfred was recognized for his genuinely unique designs and tasked with continuing to do his best to make the indigenous fashion industry more popular.
It goes without saying that Alfred earned the award. Since he established Aristocrat Clothings, it has been one award after another. This is primarily because of how much work he puts into it, and how well he is able to integrate his work with marketing. That is true genius for you, something his peers can try for a thousand years and never reach.

Butt Enhancement Surgery Can Lead To Death, Surgeon Warns
Lagos-based plastic surgeon, Dr. David Egbeogu, has warned that complications from butt enhancement can lead to death, particularly if conducted by a quack.
Dr. Egbeogu on Saturday said the most common surgical procedure is the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), noting that it involves the injection of fat from other areas of the body in the butt.
“There are so many ways that the butt is enhanced but the one that has the greatest complications that have been seen is the butt injection.
There is this injection that people receive in their butt. The commonest is the one that is called the fat transfer. The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).
“The procedure is done in such a way that the place the fat is injected and the quantity of fat matter in the outcome. If it is injected in the proper place, the chances of having complications are low.”
The medical practitioner, however, said that the worst complication that can cause death is the injection of the fat into the bloodstream.
“The worst complication is what we call fat embolism. When the fat is injected into the bloodstream. This fat can travel to any part of the body. Fat should not be in the bloodstream.
“Death can occur when fat goes into the bloodstream.”
He also advised that those interested in the procedure should seek the service of plastic surgeons and not untrained people.
“That is not to say complications cannot occur with a certified plastic surgeon. What I’m saying is that the complications are less. The difference between someone who is trained and a quack is that the trained knows about the complications and how to handle them if they should occur,” he added.
On the need for regulation, Dr. Egbeogu said that the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria exists to regulate the activities of medical practitioners.
“The truth of the matter is that regulation is necessary. It is not hidden that this is supposed to be a procedure to be performed by doctors or plastic surgeons.
“The body that should regulate the activities of medical practitioners exists. That’s the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria,” he said.
