She Dresses Her
''Fluctuating Body''
Rihanna is all about dressing to feel

The 29-year-old singer just released her Fenty x
Puma fall 2018 collection, which showcases a
"Fenty University" theme that she feels will bring
confidence to all women.
In fact, RihRih says her inspiration came from
experience with different body types as she,
herself, deals with "fluctuating" weight .

"I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating
body type, where one day I can literally fit into
something that is bodycon, and then the next day—
the next week—I need something oversized," she
told The Cut . "I need a little crop here and a high-
waist there to hide that part, you know?"

"I need a little crop here and a high- waist there to hide that part, you know?"
For that reason, she thinks fashion should be about what works on any given day rather than sticking to the same thing over and over again.
"I really pay attention every day when I go into the closet about what's working for my body that morning," she explained. "I feel like that's how everyone should go after fashion, because it's an individual thing. And then, if you take it further, it's like: What week are you having? You having a skinny week? You having a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing oversized?" She continued, "I love to play with silhouettes as well, but I think it's important to make sure that you wear the thing that works for your body the best, and that's flattering."
Gabrielle Union 
applaud back in Defense of Sexual
Assault Victims and Their

Gabrielle Union has a message about the link between sexual assault victims and their clothes: there isn't one. The star, who has previously spoken out about the rape she suffered at gunpoint as a teenager, took to Twitter Sunday to use her experience as a teaching lesson. "Reminder. I got raped at work at a Payless shoe store. I had on a long tunic & leggings so miss me w/ 'dress modestly' shit," the actress candidly wrote. "Though I was raped by a stranger who raped me at gunpoint after robbing the store, I was still asked by a female 'friend' what I had worn." The Being Mary Jane star's comments follow a
New York Times op-ed penned by Mayim Bialik , who caught some flack over the weekend for
writing in part that she dresses modestly as a "self-protecting" choice. "I am entirely aware that these types of choices might feel oppressive to many young feminists,"
she continued in the piece, titled "Mayim Bialik: Being a Feminist in Harvey Weinstein's World.""They should be able to flirt however they want with whomever they want. Why are we the ones who have to police our behavior?" The Big Bang Theory star later clarified her stance,
claiming her words had been taken out of context. "I'm being told my N.Y. Time s piece resonated
with so many and I am beyond grateful for all of the feedback. I also see a bunch of people have taken
my words out of the context of the Hollywood machine and twisted them to imply that God forbid I
would blame a woman for her assault based on her clothing or behavior," Bialik wrote on Twitter and
Facebook late on Saturday. "Anyone who knows me and my feminism knows that's absurd and not at all what this piece was about. It's so sad how vicious people are being
when I basically live to make things better for women." Meanwhile, in light of mounting sexual misconduct
allegations against Harvey Weinstein (the producer has denied allegations of non-consensual sex), Union wanted to drive home the message that women who are assaulted are not "asking for it" no matter where they are or what they're wearing.

"Sexual violence & harassment can happen to anyone at anytime anywhere," she tweeted. "Ppl
remain silent 4 many different very personal reasons. Judgment, victim shaming/blaming, loss of job/$, fear of violence, retaliation." As the actress continued, "Folks are also very open and obvious about what kind of victim should beprioritized & believed. To think otherwise is to be
willfully dim...In Hollywood meetings in homes, hotel lobbies/restaurants/suites, private isolated office space is the norm. NO ONE 'ASKED FOR IT!!'"
'No out break of Monkeypox virus so far  in Lagos'
Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, says

Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, says all the Monkey Pox samples obtained from Lagos and subjected to laboratory examination tested negative. Adewole broke the news at a press conference in Abuja today. According to him, three cases of the viral disease have been confirmed in Bayelsa. “As of October 13, 2017, there were 17 SUSPECTED cases reported from Yenagoa LGA in Bayelsa State. We have received laboratory confirmation for Monkeypox virus from three of these cases from the WHO Regional Laboratory in Dakar, Senegal. Samples from 12 other cases from Bayelsa were negative. With these results, four suspected Monkeypox outbreak in Yenagoa have been confirmed with laboratory evidence. The most likely source of infection is a primary zoonotic transmission, from an animal, with a secondary person-to-person transmission. “Since our initial announcement, a total of 43 other suspected cases have been reported from eight other states namely Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Ekiti, Lagos, Enugu, Nasarawa, Rivers, and FCT. Of these, four cases from Lagos have also been tested and confirmed to be negative for the Monkey pox virus. We expect that many of these cases being reported from other states in Nigeria are not caused by the Monkeypox virus, but we will continue to investigate all those cases that fit the case definition. Further laboratory tests using whole genome sequencing are being carried out by the Africa Centre for Genomics and Infectious Diseases in Redeemers University Ede, Ogun State.” he said

p and Resigned ASP Captured 

Amid Theft Operation In Egbeda 

Lagos Nigeria

A police sergeant serving at the Oworo Police Division, Lagos State, Yakubu Aiyegba, and a resigned

Right hand Administrator of Police, Obosa Augustine, have been captured for claimed theft.
They were caught alongside a cab driver, Godwin George, by agents from the Shasha

Police headquarters. PUNCH Metro learnt that Aiyegba and Augustine

were infamous for attacking a lodging in Egbeda and blackmailing cash from visitors in the office.

They supposedly paraded themselves as agents of the Unique Hostile to Burglary Squad, Lagos State Order.

They were said to have strongly gathered an aggregate of N50,000 and a portable workstation from an anonymous visitor a barely any weeks prior and fled the region in a taxi driven by George.

Our journalist assembled that the three suspects, drove by the resigned ASP, backpedaled to the office – Ehis Inn – on Wednesday on another
extortionate attack.

They were supposedly amidst the demonstration when agents from the Shasha division, who followed up on

a tip-off, raged the inn and lifted them up. The suspects were in this manner exchanged to SARS in Ikeja.

A police source told our journalist that the order had been observing Augustine and Aiyegba for quite a while subsequent to getting grumblings from the lodging.

He stated, "There have been a progression of dissensions about SARS agents blackmailing cash from individuals from general society. We discovered that on numerous events, the general population mimicked SARS men.

"On Wednesday, there was a comparable case. Augustine and Aiyegba went to Ehis Lodging to ransack visitors, parading themselves as SARS agents. They typically go to that lodging on illicit operations.
"Three weeks back, they gathered N50,000 and a portable workstation from a visitor. That Wednesday, they were traveling between different lodging rooms to irritate the visitors when the police were alarmed." Nonetheless, in a visit with PUNCH Metro, Aiyegba, a 39-year-old Kogi State indigene, said they didn't go to the inn to burglarize. He said they were companions to the inn administrator, one Kingsley, who ordinarily gave them cash.
He stated, "Two weeks prior, we went to Kingsley at the inn and saw a few people smoking on the premises. We debilitated to capture them, yet they beseeched us. In light of our companion, Kingsley, we cleared out them. "Now and again when we visit Kingsley, he would give us N1,000 to purchase cola nuts. We don't ordinarily exasperate him. On Wednesday, Supol (Augustine) disclosed to me that
Kingsley called him that we should come. "On arriving, we met some young men smoking. When they located us, they called their companions to battle us. Policemen from Shasha division later came to capture us." The 52-year-old resigned officer, who hails from Edo State, said he went to the lodging in view of the great compatibility he had with Kingsley before he resigned from the power.
"I have four kids and a spouse. I resigned for the current year
while at the Idimu Police Division. The administrator continuously gives me cash. He called me on Wednesday to come and gather cash.

"As we arrived, some person said we gathered N50,000 and a portable workstation from him three weeks prior, which is only an affirmation. We didn't ransack anyone.

We didn't mimic SARS," he included.
George, the cab driver, expressed that he was most certainly not engaged with the charged theft, including that he remained outside the lodging.

He stated, "I know Aiyegba as a policeman and he acquainted me with Mr. Augustine. I have taken them to the inn thrice. They would give me a drink and request that I remain outside.

"Subsequent to meeting with the director, they would fuel
my auto or give me N1,500." The Lagos State Police Advertising Officer, ASP Olarinde Renowned Cole, affirmed the capture, including that examinations were progressing.

In the mean time, men of the Fast Reaction Squad, have likewise captured three theft suspects – Moshood Olowu, 24; Olasunkanmi Ogundipe, 26; and 22- year-old Rasaq Adebola. While Olowu and Ogundipe were gotten in the Ketu territory, Adebola was secured in the Ikate territory of Lagos State.

It was assembled that Olowu, Ogundipe and their associates everywhere looted two suburbanites in Ojota and Ketu, while Adebola grabbed a pack having a place with one Helen Susan. Olowu, in his announcement to the police, purportedly admitted to perpetrating the wrongdoing in Alausa, Ikeja,
where he and his pack individuals had gone to an occasion on Friday.

He stated, "We were at Ojota around 5am after leaving the gathering to load up a transport to Ikorodu. I plunged
my hand into another traveler's pocket when we were surging. I evacuated his telephone and passed it to my partners, Ayobami and Jide. "The proprietor held my hand and kept me from joining the transport. Ayobami and Jide, who I gave the stolen telephone, left while RRS men captured me." Ogundipe expressed that he was in organization with nine different accessories from the gathering when they addressed one Minister Adetayo Samuel, who needed to board a transport to Ibadan, Oyo State, at old toll door, Ketu. "We gathered three cell phones and N6,000 from him. We fled the scene promptly and we broke into three gatherings. We were trailed by a RRS watch group who got protestation from our casualty.

They captured me while I was attempting to board a transport
to Ibafo (Ogun State)," he said.

The third suspect, Adebola, stated, "I was going to Ajah. Just before I got to Chisco, Maroko, at about 11pm, I grabbed a woman's pack. I endeavored to escape however the RRS men were in my front. They recouped the pack from me."

The PPRO, Renowned Cole, expressed that the three suspects would be exchanged to the State Criminal

Examination and Knowledge, Yaba, for further examination.
Aaron Carter Checks into Rehab

Aaron Carter is checking back into rehab. Earlier this month, the singer left his California rehab earlier than expected. At the time, his rep Steve Honig stated that Carter had, "Several legal and personal matters arose that required his immediate in person attention." Now the rep says those matters have been dealt with and Carter, who recently showed off a healthy 30-pound weight gain, is on his way back to the rehab to work on his health and wellness. "Aaron has taken care of the legal and financial matters that required his attention and returned to the wellness facility to complete his program," Honig told E! News on Saturday.

Upon entering the treatment center in September, Carter released the following the statement on Twitter: "My loved ones, I would like to tell all of you that I will be disappearing for a while to work on myself. I would also like to announce that I am releasing a gift to you on Oct. 27. In time for Halloween, a new version of 'I Want Candy.' 4 weeks later, I will be releasing my first single from my new album, LOVE," he wrote. "I'll see you soon looking amazing and ready to play all my new songs LIVE. Most importantly, my stressors haven't subsided with family and this year has been crazy and I need some time off from all of it." Honig had also released the following statement at the time: "Aaron has decided to enter a facility to improve his health and work on his overall wellness. He is going to do this privately and focus all his attention on being the best person and performer possible. He is grateful for the support and love from his fans and looks forward to coming back stronger than ever before." It's been a rough few months for Carter.

In September, the singer was involved in a car accident that left him with an injured nose and a totaled BMW. That same month he received three welfare visits from the police within 24 hours. The visits came after an anonymous caller claimed the child star had attempted to buy a gun and had made threats of harm against family members and others.

Police also responded to an anonymous call claiming there had been a suicide threat involving Carter. Although, authorities did not make contact with the singer and police documents suggested that everything was OK.

In addition to these incidents, Carter was arrested in July on suspicion of driving under the influence and pot possession. The singer had been arrested for possession of at least two ounces of marijuana back in 2008 and had spent a month in rehab to treat addiction issues in 2011.

We hope he gets the help he needs!

Nollywood Diva Liz Anjorin Inspires
Women In New Article

Nollywood actress and business woman, Elizabeth Anjorin has dropped an inspiration article aimed at improving the lives of women all around the world.

Here is what she wrote on her official IG page: Treat me like a queen that I’m and I’ll treat you like a king. But if you treat me like a game, I’ll show you how it’s played. I treat every man like a king and every woman like a Queen, trying to shove my face in the mold will only bring out the demon in me, be warned and be guided!! Some women may decided to table themselves as a slave, that’s not my concern though… As a real woman, you have to table what you have Mentally, spiritually and physically because what we need as a woman is beyond Pussy, big bum and big boobs, all you need is your senses and your pride.
You do not need to fight for front row or rub shoulders with men, when you are eloquent and smart, they will reserve your chair/place in front
row. When you are not active people will say please don’t worry about her but when you are eloquent
they will say please keep her share because she’s a monster.. You must be a good reader and smart observant as woman; when you are in a middle of a conversation, don’t be looking down and be nodding
your head like a lizard, you need to talk sense and be clever.. Smartness and being clever, makes women get attracted to men easily than physique.. Every man deserves a Queen that can defend him
in his absentia and every child deserves a good mother that will protect the family’s name.
Only a good woman can build a nation, though the bad ones will be there trying to pull it down behold, the name of the good woman will be written bold on
the tomb and the name of the ones trying to bring it down will be nowhere to be found.
Tagbo Umeike ’s Family Cries Out For
Justice As Davido Regains Freedom

Controversial singer David Adeleke alias Davido, who was arrested by the police on Wednesday over
the death of his friend, Tagbo Umeike, has regained freedom.

This is coming at a time family of Tagbo has said there was more to his death, vowing to get to the
bottom of the matter.

Davido was arrested by officers from the Lion Building Police Division, in Lagos and brought to the Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, who, after interviewing him, ordered that he be taken back to
the division for further questioning.
Tagbo’s body was found dead in a Toyota Camry car, believed to have been left by Davido’s escort driver and parked in front of the Lagos Island General Hospital, Lagos. The incident went viral on the social media two weeks ago when Caroline Danjuma, an actress, took to her Instagram page, accusing Davido over Tango death. Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Olarinde Famous-Cole, confirmed yesterday that Davido had been granted bail.

“Yes, Davido has been granted bail. The case is still under investigation,” he said.

A police source at the command headquarters, Ikeja, said Davido was released about 10.30pm Wednesday. “He has been instructed to be reporting twice a week to the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) till investigation is concluded. We don’t know what will happen. The case may be charged to court or not, depending on the outcome of our investigation,” the officer said. Meanwhile, family members and friends of Tagbo have alleged that there was more to his death.

An official statement signed by Mrs. Araka, on behalf of the family, stated: “Family of Tagbo Umeike received the shocking news of the passing on of our brother on October 3, 2017,at about 8.5 pm, several hours after his demise. Evidence received so far suggest that there is more to his death and we, as family, will ensure that the truth regarding the circumstances of his death be brought to the light.” CP Edgal, while addressing the media on Wednesday, said Davido was re-invited for questioning when it was discovered that he lied that he was not aware of the demise of Tagbo.

He said the police command decided to invite all parties involved in the matter, having requested for the CCTV footage in the hospital.

According to him, those invited for the meeting include Davido and his family, the deceased’s family, the Area A commander, and the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Lion Building Police Station. He said: “At the meeting, Davido repeatedly denied his involvement in the circumstances that led to the death of Tagbo Umeike. The CCTV camera at Shisha Bar on the island showed the deceased in company with some friends. The CCTV camera also showed Tagbo standing and drinking from the bottle. The camera also showed a white Toyota Hilux belonging to Davido being driven away by Davido’s escort driver. “Police investigation revealed that the deceased was driven in a Toyota Camry with registration number, LSD 378 EL. The Chief Security Officer of the Lagos Island Hospital identified the Hilux as one of the vehicles that accompanied the vehicle the deceased was found in. Edgal further stated that the autopsy report conducted on the deceased revealed that Tagbo died of suffocation.

Harvey Weinstein Is
Reportedly Going to
Sex Rehab in Europe

In the five days since the New York Times published an exposé detailing some of the ever-mounting number of sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein, the film producer has been fired from the studio he founded, and his wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, has announced she is leaving him. Now, according to TMZ , the disgraced Hollywood titan is headed to rehab in Europe where he will seek treatment for sex addiction and “other behavioral issues.” According to TMZ’s sources, Weinstein sounds remarkably untroubled by the
dissolution of his life and the horrifying charges leveled against him. “He has his moments where there are bursts,” said one
source, “but for the most part he’s pretty calm.”
The producer and executive even seems optimistic about his future:
That Weinstein sounds untroubled, that his main hope for checking into sex rehab after allegedly assaulting over 20 women is to “come back with fresh, new ideas” would
be surprising were it not for the fact that he reportedly managed to intimidate, coerce, and overpower the men and women around him for decades. Of course he’s calm. He knows, perhaps better than
anyone, that Hollywood protects its
powerful men .

Against Harvey Weinstein We’re told Weinstein still believes he can
get help, come back and make a fresh start. As a source close to Weinstein put it, “He wants to come back with fresh, new ideas.” As we reported, he and his team are in settlement discussions with The Weinstein
Co. and the idea of him serving in some outside capacity is still on the table.
