Busty actress, Ronke Oshodi-Oke, has had her fair share of controversies in the Nigerian movie industry. Among the many stories that have been peddled about her is the issue of her marriage because the fair skinned actress does not live with her husband.
In a chat with Saturday Beats, the actress said that her marriage is intact. She gave reasons why she does not live with her husband.
“Personally, I don’t like places that are noisy. If you live in certain places in Lagos, everybody would know your movement. I don’t like such places. I try to keep my life private. I don’t want people to know where my children school or any other private information about me. But my husband works in Surulere and he loves the area a lot. I don’t like the area. We have a family house there, so he stays there on weekdays and during the weekend, he comes home to meet me at Abule-Egba. I have been in that area for a very long time and it is very quiet. That is why we live separately.
Four-year-old Rebecca (not real name) was a normal baby when she was born. She was bubbling with life, but following several sexual assaults on her by her 37-year-old father, identified as Ademola, little Rebecca has lost her voice. She has not been able to talk for the past few weeks.
She looked forlornly and occasionally fell asleep in the arms of her mother, Folake, 32, who was visibly distressed as she explained to Saturday PUNCH how her husband of 14 years had been molesting their daughter.
Blessed with four children; three girls, including a set of twins, and a boy, she reminisced about how they used to live as one (happy) family in the Igando area of Lagos before things took a grim turn and she caught her husband committing one of the most gruesome crimes against their second daughter – sexual assault.
Condolence to Nigeria @ 55: Nigeria has Turned into One Big Comedy Club Where the President Cracking is His “Change” Joke - Etcetera
Is Nigeria getting worse? That is a very provocative question. I have found that most people that hate Nigeria are very eager to agree that Nigeria is getting worse, while a lot of those that love Nigeria are very hesitant to admit that Nigeria is in decline. Well, I am proud to be a Nigerian, but I cannot lie to myself or tell you that Nigeria is doing just fine. The evidence is undeniable.
Our economy is ill and is rapidly getting worse. God handed us the resources to be one of the greatest economic machines in the world and we have wrecked it. But until we are willing to look in the mirror and admit how bad things have got, we won’t be ready for the solutions that are necessary.
The truth is that there are things that we can do to reverse the decline. It does not have to be permanent. We have got away from the things that made Nigeria great, and we need to admit that we are on the wrong path and start fixing this country. But if we choose to continue down the road that we are currently on, it will lead us into the darkest chapters in Nigerian history.

Thirty-five-year-old Nelson, who stabbed his father, Sunday Oamen, to death, in Abesan Estate, in the Ipaja area of Lagos State, has said he did it because his father always scolded him.

He faulted his parents for not giving him enough training, adding that he hated them for always talking down on him. Our correspondent had reported last week Monday that Nelson, a suspected drug addict, stabbed his 75-year-old father to death on Friday, September 23.

Fulani Herdsmen are Like Satan, They Only Come to Kill, Steal and Destroy, They Should be Banned From the Entire South - Femi Fani Kayode
I support the call by Afenifere that all Fulani herdsmen should be banned from the south-west. Actually I believe that they should be banned from the entire south and not just the south west. I also stand by every word that I wrote in my widely published essay titled ''The Herdsmen From Hell''.
We do not want those that slaughter innocent people, including women and children, in our midst.Those that say that we must remain silent when aliens and vandals invade our land, rape our women and kill our people shall be put to shame. No matter what they say we will continue to expose and resist this evil.
