Mr Luqman Balogun, a member of the Community Development Association, in Ibeju-Lekki, said that it had been a long time since the community witnessed such torrential rain.

“We can neither go to the office nor stay at home comfortably now as many of our valuables are already destroyed by a flood.

“I never believed we could be sacked by flood because we live in a predominantly sandy environment, due to our proximity to the ocean.

“What I have observed now is that there are no working drainage channels in Ibeju-Lekki, as we have in other parts of Lagos State,’’ he said.

Balogun mentioned some of the areas affected by the flood included Kajola, Majek first-gate area, Lakowe, Eleko, Oribanwa and Awoyaya, among several others.

According to him, the flooding has affected commercial businesses in the community, including the hospitality sector.

“I am a hotel operator. We hotel owners are also complaining of low patronage due to bad roads, epileptic power supply, the absence of a functional drainage system and other issues.

“Despite all the challenges, government is still giving us estimated taxes and ridiculous bills.

“We have not been enjoying any infrastructure in this community, yet we pay our taxes and there is virtually no serious encouragement from government,’’ he said.

Also, Mr Seyi Bakare, a resident, decried the poor condition of the Ibeju/Lekki expressway.

He noted that the major road in the area had started to develop several portholes, thereby causing some traffic bottlenecks on the expressway

Bakare added that the journey from the Ajah axis to Epe/Ibeju -Lekki which ought to take about 45 minutes now lasts about an hour-and-a-half.

Another resident, Mr Lanre Solution, appealed to the Lagos State government to fix the Lekki/Epe Expressway, which he said, was the major road linking Ibeju/Lekki to Epe.

He said that adequate maintenance of the road would enhance business activities in the area.

Mrs Bola Fadahunsi, another resident, lamented that the bad roads and flooding were causing a lot of damage to the vehicles of residents, costing them more money to maintain.

Zoo keeper impregnate’s female orangutan, says it was consensual

According to reports, a 38-year-old zoo keeper was filmed in full action by a series of hidden cameras put in place by the zoo’s security officials after doubts emerged about the man’s devious actions towards the zoo animals.

“Some animals seemed sexually aroused when it was time to feed them” explains Akhiroel Yahya, employee of the zoo for 14 years.

“But what made us most suspicious was when we discovered Marylin, our oldest orangutan, was pregnant. She has never been in contact with any other orangutans because of her aggressive nature, so it didn’t make any sense” he said, visibly troubled by the news.\

Confused zoo officials admitted that it took them sometime before being able to explain what had actually happened.

“At first, we clearly did not comprehend what had happened,” admits the zoo’s director, Abdoel Hakim.

“Marilyn has been secluded for the past 10 years, it was a total mystery,” he added.

“It is only when we placed several hidden cameras that we learned the horrible truth” he admits, visibly angered by the whole situation.

However, when confronted by local authorities, the offender denied any wrong doing on his part.“He said everything he had done was consensual,” explains police chief Abubakar Jaar. “He said he loved each and everyone of the animals and was very sorry he had impregnated the orangutan,” he told local reporters.

“He says he did not know orangutans could get pregnant from humans,” he added.

If many experts believe the man could not have impregnated the female orangutan, some specialists claim a rare genetic predisposition could explain the unexplainable. “Contrary to popular belief, the orangutan species is much closer to the human species than chimpanzees. We share practically the same DNA code, with only minute differences, which could explain the orangutan falling pregnant from this man” explains Paleobiologist Bachtiar Pado Panghulu, of the University of Jakarta.

Particularly in Indonesia, the genetic profile of some of the population is extremely close to the orangutan species, leading us to believe they’re might have been a common ancestor to both species only a few hundred thousand years ago.”

Albert Flick, a 77-year-old murderer released for being too old to be violent, kills another woman

Published

Albert Flick, a hardened murderer released in his late 60s after being deemed too old to be dangerous, struck again by stabbing a woman to death in front of her twin sons 11 times in broad daylight.

Before being released 9 years ago, the 77-year-old murderer had already served more than 25 years in prison for violent crimes against women. The first murder committed by the Army Veteran who had spent 19 years working at a doughnut shop in Westbrook, Maine, occurred 40 years ago after his wife served him with divorce papers.

It was gathered that in January 1979, his wife, 35-year-old Sandra Flick was found stabbed 14 times, but she lived just long enough to tell the neighbor her husband did it. However Flick was released in 2000, 9 years early into his 30 years jail sentence for good behavior according to WCSH. But in 2007, Flick was charged again after violently attacking a woman he was dating. In 2010, after being released yet again, he assaulted another woman and was incarcerated, according to The Washington Post.

He struck again on July 15, 2018, stabbing Kimberly Dobbie, a homeless woman, 11 times in front of her two children. Flick had met Dobbie while living in Lewiston, Maine and quickly became infatuated with her. Witnesses said he was obsessed with her and would follow her throughout her day, though the feelings were apparently not mutual. He ended up attacking and killing her last summer. He was found guilty of the murder on Wednesday, and is expected to spend the remainder of his life in prison. Flick’s sentencing is scheduled for August 9 and he faces a minimum of 25 years.
