Four women have accused Donald Trump of groping or kissing them without their consent in shocking details. This is coming just days after a 2005 Access Hollywood tape showed the Republican presidential nominee bragging about kissing women, grabbing them “by the pussy,” and attempting to have sex with a married woman. The claims by the four women, were reported by The New York Times, The Palm Beach Post, People magazine and Yahoo News. One of the women alleges that Trump grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt during a flight more than three decades ago, the New York Times reported. Another says he kissed her on the mouth outside an elevator in 2005, according to the same report. A third woman says Trump groped her rear end at his Mar-a-Lago resort 13 years ago, the Palm Beach Post reported. The fourth, then a People magazine reporter, says Trump kissed her without her assent when the two were alone in 2005 right before an interview she was about to conduct with Trump and his wife. Trump has denied the first two allegations in an interview with the Times. Trump, who was in Miami Wednesday, was considering filing a lawsuit against the Times and was consulting with advisers about his legal options, according to two people close to him. The two people, who requested anonymity to discuss private conversations, said Trump is furious about the accusations made against him in the story and with the newspaper for publishing them. In a statement issued by his campaign after the Times report was published, spokesman Jason Miller said, “This entire article is fiction.” Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks told the Palm Beach Post "there is no truth" to the third allegation. His campaign denied the fourth allegation, People reported. But in each of the first three instances, the newspapers spoke to people close to the women -- a universe that includes friends, family members, significant others and colleagues -- who verified that the women told them their stories about what they say happened months or years ago. In the fourth, the reporter wrote a detailed first person account of what she says happened on People's website. Separately, CBS News on Wednesday reported 1992 footage filmed for "Entertainment Tonight" in which Trump is heard commenting about a young girl, "I'm going to be dating her in ten years." Also Wednesday, Rolling Stone published a story that included the allegations of Cassandra Searles, Miss Washington 2013. In a comment she appended to a post she had put on Facebook earlier this year suggesting that Trump treated pageant contestants “like cattle,” Searles wrote, “He probably doesn’t want me telling the story about that time he continually grabbed my ass and invited me to his hotel room.” Yahoo covered her post and comment in June. Jessica Leeds, 74, told the Times that she sat beside Trump in the first-class cabin of a flight to New York when she was 38. She didn't know him. Leeds said Trump groped her and tried to reach up her skirt. “His hands were everywhere,” she said.The second woman, Rachel Crooks, was at the time a 22-year-old receptionist at a real estate company in Trump Tower who said she came face to face with Trump outside an elevator there in 2005. She said that after she introduced herself to Trump and they shook hands, he would not let go, then kissed her cheeks and “kissed me directly on the mouth.” “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that,” she said. Donald Trump Days later, Trump, then recently married to his wife Melania, came to her office and requested her phone number, saying he planned to give it to his modeling agency. Crooks was skeptical, but agreed. She was never contacted by the agency, the Times reported. Neither Crooks nor Leeds reported their descriptions to the authorities. But the Times quotes Leeds's neighbor, Crooks's boyfriend at the time and her sister, each of whom said that the women previously told them about their alleged encounters with Trump. Both Leeds and Crooks say they support Hillary Clinton's campaign for president, the Times reported. Mindy McGillivray, 36, told the Palm Beach Post that Trump groped her rear end at Mar-a-Lago in 2003 when she was there accompanying a photographer friend who was shooting a Ray Charles concert.
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency on Tuesday arraigned a 23-year-old deaf and dumb man, Abass Hamed, for allegedly dealing in cannabis sativa, popularly called marijuana. Hamed was arraigned before Justice Jude Dagat of a Federal High Court in Lagos where the one count levelled against him was interpreted to him by a sign language interpreter, Francis Peters. He was accused of dealing in one kilogramme of the substance and was said to have been arrested by NDLEA operatives on February 18, 2014, along Agege Motor road, Agege, Lagos. The NDLEA prosecutor, Mr. Jerry Aernan, told the court that the accused acted contrary to Section 11(c) of the National Drugs Laws Enforcement Agency Act Cap N30, Law of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004, and was liable to be punished under the same law. Aernan told the court that Hammed had been in custody since 2014 because the NDLEA had difficulty getting a sign language interpreter to interpret the charge to the accused in court. When the charge was eventually read and interpreted to him on Tuesday through hand signal, Hamed signified that he understood the charge but pleaded not guilty. He also nodded his head in denial, when asked if he sniffed the substance. Consequent upon Hamed’s not guilty plea, the prosecutor applied for an adjournment for commencement of trial. Counsel for the accused, Mrs. O. Ozobia, did not object to the trial of her client, but urged the court to give a date for the hearing of his bail application. Justice Dagat adjourned till November 5 and 7, 2016 for commencement of trial.

Nigerians are one of the most creative people on the planet. While non-Nigerians may doubt my assertion, till they manage to invent a popular version of English like we did (Pidgin English), they can keep on doubting. Although there are many awesome things Nigerians do, we do have some face palm moments. Don't laugh too hard at the five words Nigerians use that doesn't exist in the English dictionary: *.1. Installmentally This doesn't exist anywhere else except only in Nigeria. If you doubt this, just search"Installmentally" on google and watch only Nigerian sites pop up. *.2. Night-Vigil This is another one I don't understand. Does anyone ever hold a vigil during the day? *.3. Disvirgin How hard is it to say deflowered? It must be extremely difficult because even health professionals and newsmen use this absurd word that doesn't exist. *.4. Wake Keeping (Wake keep) Nigerians have not only made the old European custom of watching over a corpse till it's buried (called a wake) theirs, they have actually renamed it. Please, there is no such phrase as "wake keep" or even "wake keeping". *.5. Cunny This is not meant as a euphemism for the female body part. When Nigerians say this word, they mean "cunning". How is that for a giant leap forward?

Announcing the bizarre move, he urged future university entrees to consider taking Witchcraft as a course. . Hear him: “There is a lot we can learn from witchcraft, like how they fly in that winnowing basket. Imagine if we learn that skill. It will eradicate traffic jams and everyone will just get in their basket and fly. It also means we will not be importing fuel anymore.” He said

The gig was up for a woman in Benue state who allegedly uses 'juju' to rob people of their hard earned money. When the woman, whose name remains unknown, touches you, all your money disappears. She was caught at the closing hours of Tomayiin Market in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of Benue State. A source claims the woman's '419' is so spiritually gangster that when she meets a person for the first time, she is able to greet you by your name and relate with you like an old friend, but if she eventually touches you all the money you have on you will mysteriously vanish. But as the aphorism goes, 99 days for the thief... you know the rest. It is said she when her cup of evil was full yesterday, Thursday, she touched the 'wrong person' who blew the whistle. She was caught and beaten black and blue. When the angry mob had beaten her to their satisfaction, she was handed over to the police for further investigations. Photo credit: Abaa Ngusha
