Atlantic Energy Boss, Jide Omokore's Marriage To Ex Banker, Angela Ebagua Threatened Over Romance With American Actress, Porsha Williams.
Societal Highflyer, Caroline Olasehinde Moves Away From The Pains Of Broken Marriage To Captain Lanre Rhodes, Reverts To Maiden Name.
Societal big gal, Caroline Oladehinde appears to have pushed away the pains of her broken marriage.
The Exxon Mobil attention getter is has reverted to her maiden name and resumed social circle.
Here are the trending details
'Even if she has not completely got over it or plainly told the world that her marriage has gone south, Exxon Mobil’s highflyer and one of high society’s cheerleaders, Caroline Olasehinde, is learning to live happily with her single status.
Married to successful pilot Captain Lanre Rhodes at an elaborate wedding that held at the Caverton Helicopter Lounge in Victoria Island, Lagos, years back, Caroline’s nuptial was a union bordering on the utopian – a fantastic job, a successful hubby, a luminous presence on the Lagos high society and an easily recognisable name that can turn a cage fight into a cocktail party -among other perks.
They were the envy of many couples. Together, they put concerted efforts and conspicuous energy into making the marriage work. To remove the negative feelings around her, Caroline, with the active support of her hubby, adopted a set of female twins around 2010. They were supposed to live happily ever after or so the world thought.
But when cracks began to surface in the marriage, starting with the abrupt reversal to her maiden name, tongues began to wag conjectures and presuppositions. The rumour mill went into overdrive. From blogs to the mainstream media, the news of her suspected marriage upheavals travelled at Internet speed when she eventually dropped ‘Rhodes’ from her name. Yet, she did not bother to counter all that with explanations.
'Life must go on, she must have reckoned. In adherence to this maxim, she triumphantly pulled all the stops, dug up old partying contacts and brushed up her dancing shoes to celebrate her 50th birthday in London recently. Not for her the sneers and sniggers regarding the absence of her ex-pilot hubby at the lavish soiree.
For Caroline, the Rhodes chapter, with all the good memories that will come with it, may have been closed at least for now, if not forever.'

The marriage of Tony Anenih Jr and Esosa is at an edge.
And this is thanks to husband's affection for a third party, Linda- the ex wife society buff Dean Priddy.
Here are the details as sourced from thecapital.
Many a man in love with a dimple makes the mistake of marrying the whole girl, said Stephen Leacock, late British-born Canadian writer and economist. Leacock’s words unarguably strike a sore point in the life of Tony Anenih Jnr, the son of Chief Tony Anenih. The famous dude has rediscovered his joy in the ruins of his marriage to Esosa. He is in the best of mood at the moment and that is because of Linda Priddy, the former wife of Dean Priddy. The affair has been causing Tony’s wife, Esosa a lot of grief. Irked by her husband’s continued romance with the Linda, she reportedly tried to reclaim him from Linda’s grip, but all her efforts proved to be futile. Esosa has literally become like the languid breeze blowing listlessly across shrivelling meadows. So sad! ￼Notwithstanding, Tony has reportedly informed his family and close friends that he will never let go of Linda whom he claims to be genuinely in love with. Interestingly, however, Linda looks like the love thoughts of suitors wooing the belle of the realm but she really trumps the fairest love thought. That is why she is the object of affection and focus of attention of Tony. They are much in love

New York Police Arrest Hired Homeless President Jonathan's Supporters Fighting Over Sharing Campaign Fund!
'New York Police Arrest Pro-Jonathan Hirelings
Fighting Over Cash', that is the headline of the latest trending story about President Goodluck Jonathan's move to drum up support abroad.
Here is the full gist reproduced.
'Several witnesses at the event told SaharaReporters that a group of
homeless men hired from the streets of Newark, New Jersey, clashed
with another pro-Jonathan group made up of Nigerians from the New
York area. A fracas broke out when some of the homeless hirelings
feared that members of the Nigerian group were planning to hijack
the payment of $50 per person the organizers had promised to pay.'
Edo State Gov, Adams Oshiomole wants to take over from Mr Good luck Jonathan as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
And he has initiated moves towards achieving his ambition.
Here are the details.
'Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, has submitted a letter of intent to the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC. He has also intensified consultations with stakeholders across the country, including former Presidents, Vanguard has gathered.
Eombah.com gathered that time table for his nationwide consultation meeting with APC governors, meetings with former presidents, opening of his campaign headquarters in Abuja and Edo State and setting up of committees would soon be made public.
His former governorship campaign office will serve as his presidential campaign office in Edo State, it was gathered.
A Vanguard report states that majority of the APC governors may soon endorse him as their candidate due to the belief that his popularity cuts across the country, which is one of the attributes they intend to explore to stop President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who, incidentally, is expected to visit Edo State this weekend.
If the governor picks the APC ticket, he may be squaring up with President Jonathan, who also is from the South-South.
'Special Adviser to the governor, Mr Kaseem Afegbua, who reacted to the governor’s alleged presidential ambition, said that the governor has the pedigree to run for the highest position in the country, therefore, people should not be surprised if he decides to join the race.
“I don’t know why it appears strange that Adams Oshiomhole is running for president? Does he not have the pedigree to do so or some people are just trying to be cynical about his ambition? Or the PDP is jittery, knowing fully well that Oshiomhole enjoys national support and a greater appeal than some of those presently eyeing the plum position.
“Since the news broke, we have been inundated with several telephone calls which also suggests that a lot of Nigerians across socio-political divides welcome the idea. Some of those highly placed Nigerians that spoke to us concede to the fact that he is eminently qualified to run for the nation’s highest office.”'
Growing Unrest As Convicted Ex Gov, James Ibori Imposes Daughter, Atake As Election Candidate From Prison!
Ex Governor currently serving jail term abroad for corrupt enrichment and related offences, James Ibori is not done with politicking.
Fresh reports indicate the in jail power broker just sparked off a fresh unrest in his home town in Delta state.
He just imposed his daughter, Atake as candidate in the forth coming election. And certain interests are 'very against the move'.
More detailed report of this development and the growing fallout are reproduced.
'Former Delta state governor Chief James Ibori may be in the confines of London jail, he still weilds an enormous influence in the politics of his home state, Delta.
A scenario where the former governor still dictate the tunes in the politics of the state played out on Thursday, September 18, 2014 when PDP Delta party members took to the street to protest the imposition of Ibori's daughter, Atake to represent the Ethiope West Local Government Area, in the state's House of Assembly.
'Some members of the Peoples Democratic Party in that area are angry that Miss Atake Ibori, the most senior child of the ex-governor have been drafted into the state assembly race and that the leadership of the party in the state is determined to make sure all opposition to her emergence is quashed.
' A development which triggered a street protest. Their grouse is that going by the existing zoning formula in the area, it was the turn of the Oghareki people to produce the candidate of the PDP,
One of the protesters who spoke on behalf of others numbering over 400, including some House of Assembly aspirants in Ethiope West, alleged that the cronies and loyalists of the former governor had perfected plans to impose his daughter on the people. Whereas the current zoning arrangement stipulated that it is the turn of Oghareki to produce the candidate into the state house of assembly.
They took their protest to the premises of the local government Secretariat and the palace of the monarch of Oghara Kingdom, Noble Ashemitan, to register their grievances.
“It is the turn of Oghareki to produce the next candidate to represent the local government at the Delta State House of Assembly and Ibori should not take what belong to Oghareki to Ogharefe. Ogharefe has had theirs just like every other clan in the area."
The protesters also alleged that the former governor and his cohorts had already picked his cousin as the PDP candidate for the forthcoming local government election and cannot also impose his daughter on the people of Oghareki'

In what seems a far away another life, Presidential Spokes Person Reuben Abatti posed with his then 'wonder car'.
Back then, this 'amazing ride' was the top of the range - only - automobile in the garage of the once upon a time celebrity columnist that started his career with romance publication, Hints.
Wondrously, the allure of power and wealth that comes with his current position has since transformed Abatti into 'a never to be caught dead' in such an 'entrapment' Nigerian.
Scion of Ibru family, Olorogun Oscar is said to be ill.
He is said to be battling addiction.
And according to reports he is currently interned in a rehabilitation home abroad.
Here are details of this development as revealed by thecapital.
'Oscar Ibru, 55, probably woke up one morning looking like a bowl of sauerkraut.
Then he most likely decided to quit whatever his habit was and retreated into hibernation mode, thinking if that was the way the process goes, then he certainly don’t need the towering highs and the abysmal lows of his best kept habit.
'Sources very close to the scion of the Olorogun Michael Ibru dynasty recently revealed to The Capital that he (Oscar) is recently cooling his lust for an expensive habit at a private home in London.
'Perhaps it was an intervention by family and friends that helped save his hide thus freeing him of the vicious shackles and lure of the habit.
'And maybe his sudden disappearance from the social scene and high society had nothing to do with a habit; Oscar Ibru perhaps, simply chose to maintain an unusually low profile.
Whatever the truth is, the Nigerian high society bemoans the sudden disappearance and continual absence of a man whose aristocratic features ornamented its circuits overwhelmingly.
Predictably, his family is worried and that is because even though Oscar has withdrawn from the public in order to regain his vitality, they (his family) are feeling the void created by his absence in no small measure. That is how grave the situation is.
'Oscar Ibru is the first son of Olorogun Michael Ibru and he controls several businesses with interests in shipping, oil and gas, real estate among others. Seven years ago, he contested the governorship election in Delta State but lost to Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, the incumbent. He was recently honoured with the award of the ‘Most Outstanding Niger Delta Personality of the Year’ by the National Association of Niger Delta Students at the prestigious Apapa Boat Club, Lagos.'

This is a very sad and harrowing development coming from the home front of Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi.
The trending report is reproduced.
'Governor Chibuike Amaechi’s uncle, Mr. Sabinus Ordu, has been murdered by yet-to-be-identified assailants, in his hometown, Ubima in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State.
News of the victim’s murder was broken yesterday, by the state Commissioner for Information, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, at a media briefing in Port Harcourt. She disclosed that the octogenarian was assassinated last Monday while his mutilated body was discovered in the bush.
According to her, the deceased was a career civil servant and vice principal of Community Secondary School, Aluu, also in Ikwerre Local Government Areea.
It was gathered that the deceased was reportedly trailed by unknown assailants when he went to check some of his traps in the bush.
“The late Mr. Sabinus Ordu, who is an uncle to Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, returned home in the afternoon from CSS, Aluu where he was the vice principal and told the boy staying with him that he was going into the bush to check his traps after having a meal.
“He then mounted his motorcycle and left for the bush, but did not return until it was night. At about 8.00pm, the boy raised an alarm which attracted the villagers. A search party was sent to look for him. “The search party, on their way into the bush, saw the victim’s motorcycle by the bush path, and immediately went into the bush where they found his lifeless body, mutilated with several machete cuts. The matter has been reported to the police at Elele, while his remains have been deposited at the morgue”, she stated.
The Commissioner for Information further said that the state government was concerned about the ugly development, especially as the 2015 general elections were fast approaching, even as she called on the police to step in and ensure that the perpetrators of the heinous crime were brought to book.
“We are concerned about this development, especially because these are obvious signs as we get closer to the general elections. We don’t want to point fingers or cast aspersions, but Mr. Ordu was only a civil servant and a peace-loving man. He was a simple citizen and was not into government contracts.
“Perhaps, his only crime was that he is related to Governor Amaechi. We are calling on the police to bring Mr. Ordu’s killers to book. This cannot be another mystery murder; this cannot be another unresolved murder case. The people of Rivers State will continue to resist the murder of innocent people”.
She added: “God alone gives life and only God can take a life. This is a crime against the innocent and the poor”. Responding to questions from journalists on the heinous act, Semenitari, said the ugly development would not be unconnected with the politics in the state.
“At this point, we are unwilling to cast any aspersion. We hope it is not politically motivated. We can’t adduce any reason for the murder. Every indicator points to the strong likelihood that this was politically motivated”, she said'

Popular Akwa Ibom Guber Hopefuls, Umana Umana, Bassey Albert's Campaign Loss Groundswell Support Over Endorsement Reception Turned Sour, How Victor Attah Pulled carper under them.
The tide of support in the upcoming Akwa Ibom gubernatorial election has turned against popular aspirants Umana Umana and Albert Bassey.
And the catalyst of this development is a reception organised for former governor Victor Attah. The event meant to endorse their candidature turned otherwise.
Details are reproduced as sourced.
'Ahead of the 2015 governorship election in Akwa Ibom State, the camps of the duo of Umana Okon Umana and Bassey Albert, both of Uyo senatorial district ,struggling for the plum job of Governor against the people’s resolve to support power shift to Eket senatorial district are already experiencing massive rejection and abandonment by their supporters, who are reportedly leaving in droves.
This is coming days after a reception the duo organized at Asan Ibibio grounds, under the guise of elders of the Ibibio ethnic nationality, in honour of the former governor of the state, Obong (Arc) Victor Attah.
Sources close to both camps have it that since the pronouncement in support of power shift to Eket senatorial district by Former Governor Attah, at the event, the duo of Albert and Umana has not had it easy, as they are striving day and night to convince the people that Attah never meant to endorse zoning.
Upon our findings, a key supporter of Bassey Albert who does not want his name on print said it was disheartening and embarrassing that they were fooled of Obong Attah’s support for a Governor of Uyo senatorial extraction, by their principal, only to discover that the former governor will be firm and truthful.
Also a visibly angry supporter of Umana Okon Umana, who simply gave his name as Ephraim Ekong, said he was disappointed that Umana could mislead them into believing the former governor was not comfortable with having a governor from the Eket senatorial district of the state.
'Obong Victor Attah during his speech, penultimate Friday said consequential logic requires that Uyo and Ikot Ekpene Senatorial Districts haven taken shots at the governorship of the State, expected that Eket District should produce the next Governor....'
It is widely reported that Albert and Umana now whines in regret of ever sponsoring the event, as it has caused them the support they previously enjoyed, even as desperate attempts by the duo to misrepresent the elder statesman’s position on zoning of governorship in the state to Eket senatorial district, has been widely rebuffed by their supporters, who now say they have heard from the horse’s mouth.
With the recent development, it could be said that the reign of lies, blackmail and deceit against the Eket senatorial district’s governorship bid is gravitating to an end, as our reporters noted that the campaign offices belonging to the duo of Umana and Albert, which used to be a beehive of activities has now become a ghost of itself.
Efforts to speak to the Director Generals of their campaign groups were unsuccessful. And as expected, they may still be nursing brunts of the fatal loss and rejection a reception they organised was causing them.'
Once Again: Grave Concerns Over Asiwaju Bola Tinubu's Health, As Supporters Go Into Fasting & Prayer Mode!
According to recent report there is grave cause for concern over the health of powerful politician' Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Details of the development are reproduced as source.
'There is a growing fear and confusion over the state of health of political leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The former governor of Lagos state and chieftain of opposition party, All Progressives Congress is currently abroad on health reasons.
Official statements claimed he travelled abroad on routine medical check up.
But guarded information indicate he was taken abroad to manage deteriorating health.
'Said to in a medical facility situated in the United States of America, news filtering out about the health situation of the powerful politician is said to have sent some of his followers and supporters in prayer and fasting mode for a return of good health.
He is alleged to be undergoing 'intensive care' after one or two relapsed situations.
The situation is said to be giving many whose fate hang on his decision great cause for concern.
The powerful politician and wealthy nigerian is credited with final say on who becomes what in the political circles of the southwest states his party controls- particularly Lagos state.
He is the stabilising figure in a very intricate and complex socio political setting.
It is feared convoluted acrimony looms if his health ebbs to a stage he finds it hard to assert his will.
As usually the case in situations that chip at the larger than life image of their principal, close aides refuse to divulge details of the situation, while passionate followers wish it away as 'just the usual rumour'.
However it is instructive to note that talks of grave ill health and related scenerio have dogged the celebrity political figure for a while.'
