Comic actor, John Okafor a.k.a Mr. Ibu who had one of his leg amputated weeks ago, has also undergone another surgery.    Sources told Vanguard that he has undergone another surgery, cutting off part of the same leg that was initially amputated last month. His health is said to have degenerated to the point that he hardly talks again. There are also fears over the deteriorating health of another veteran actor, Amaechi Muonagor, who has been hospitalized at Nnamdi Azikwe University Teaching Hospital Nnewi, Anambra State, for over two months.   Giving an update on the health of the ailing actors in a telephone chat, National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria,AGN, Dr. Emeka Rollas said;    “We are resigning to fate concerning the two actors. As I speak with you, Mr Ibu hardly talks again and he has undergone another leg amputation. “You will shed tears if you see Amaechi Muonagor now, his legs are completely paralyzed. I’m calling on all fans and well wishers of the ac

British tabloids reported that the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) has been asked by James Cleverly, the Home Secretary, to review the graduate visa as part of a five-point plan to reduce net migration by 300,000 from its record-high levels. More than 98,000 students were granted the two-year visas to remain in the UK after their graduation in the year to June 2023, an increase of 42,000 or 74 per cent in just a year. Fewer than one in 100 (0.7 per cent) of those who applied after completing their initial UK course were refused. There are fears that it is being used as a backdoor route to work in the UK, often in low-skilled jobs, or simply to stay for two years as there is no requirement to take up employment. Commenting on the recent directive, chairman of the MAC, Professor Brian Bell said;  “There’s no requirement to get particular grades in your university course or anything like that. That’s the question we want to review in the graduate route to think about whethe

Tennessee couple and their two children lost their home after a large tornado ripped through their community and swept up their 4-month-old child, who was found alive in a nearby tree following the tragedy.   Sydney Moore, her boyfriend and their children were inside their home last Saturday, Dec. 9, in Clarksville when the EF-3 tornado, which left six people dead and more than two dozen injured, touched down in Montgomery County.   Moore said the tornado, which destroyed the couple’s mobile home and other belongings, picked up her 4-month-old child, who managed to survive the horrific event.   “Something in me just told me to run and jump on top of my son,” Moore told Nashville’s WSMV News of her efforts to protect her eldest child, a 1-year-old. “The moment I jumped on him, the walls collapsed.” Recalling what exactly happened that evening, Moore told the outlet that her boyfriend could see the tornado envelop their home before it was ripped to shreds and the baby’s bassi

A child-free woman revealed how it's "selfish" to have kids. Chandler Carter grew up believing becoming a mum was the next step in life until she went to university and saw child-free women "thriving". The 24-year-old realised it wasn't something she wanted and now spends her time travelling two to three times a year. She also spends on nice dinners. The social media manager would prefer to "regret" not having a child, than motherhood itself. Chandler, from New York, US, said: "I want to be child-free. You can be happy. I'd rather regret not having children than having a child and regretting the role of being a mum.   "I don't fault people for having children but the reasons are selfish. People want them to be a better parent than theirs were or because they want a mini me. Having a child is inherently selfish." Up until university Chandler thought she would go on to get married and have kids. She was always convi
