When Lupita Nyong’o’s 2015 Oscar dress was stolen, it caused a movement on social media with people releasing memes and tweets in a bid to ‘help’ find the Calvin Klein dress that was said to be worth $150,000.
Well according to TMZ the dress has been found. More accurately, the dress was returned by the person who took it in the first place.
TMZ reports that they got a tip and call from the dress thief after the thief tried to sell off two of the 6000 pearls used to embellish the dress and was told that the pearls were fake.
Now, a source directly connected with the Women’s Creative Director of Calvin Klein, Francisco Costa, has come forward to say that Calvin Klein never presented the dress as ‘real’ or ‘fake’ She spoke to TMZ saying “Did anyone ever say they were real from Calvin Klein? I always assumed everyone knew they were fake, but I guess not. Do they really make dresses out of real jewels since Cleopatra died?”

Yemi Alade addresses her Hacked Instagram Account: The Erotic Messages That Were Sent to Phyno Were Not from Me

A few days ago Yemi Alade had her Instagram account hacked while she was on tour outside Nigeria.

Immediately her PR team took control of the situation but the singer is speaking out about the incident by herself for the first time in an interview with Punch Newspaper.
She talks about losing followers and the messages exchanged between her and Phyno.
I lost over 90,000 followers which made me a bit unhappy. The erotic messages that were sent to Phyno were not from me. It was the hackers that sent it to him. Right from the moment a picture of Snoop Dogg with marijuana was posted, that was not from me. My PR team has been sending messages to instagram but we are yet to get a response. I think it is because we are in Africa; they tend not to attend to our messages on time. But my team in London is working on it even if it means deactivating it. I have a new instagram page now. However, I started my tour on that day and it elevated my mood
She also talks about the age-long question of whether she is dating Nollywood actor Alex Ekubo or not.
Alex Ekubo and I just shot a video together and that was it. Even though we attended some events together, it does not mean anything. We are very cool friends, there is nothing between us.

Man in Abia State Arrested for Allegedly Selling 14 Month Old Son for N300,000

A middle-aged man in Abia State has been arrested for allegedly selling his 14-month-old son for N300,000.
The man has been identified as George Maduabuchi, and according to Punch, he connived with a man named Obinna Erondu, to perpetrate the act.
However Maduabuchi has denied the allegations. According to him, his son fell ill and so he took him to a herbalist for treatment. “The herbalist gave me money and told me that he could not heal the baby. I therefore left the baby in the herbalist’s home,” he said.
His wife, Eberechi, stated that her husband is guilty. According to her account, Maduabuchi took their son to the herbalist. But to her surprise, instead of coming back home with the baby, he came back with bundles of money. “When I demanded explanations on the whereabouts of our son, he could not offer any convincing answer,” she said.
Alarmed, Eberechi alerted neighbours, who called the police. The policemen then arrested Maduabachi, who then led them to the herbalist’s location at Owerinta. The baby was found.
The case is currently under investigation.

Charles Soludo: Pres. Jonathan Misunderstood my Statements About Missing N30 Trillion

Former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Charles Soludo is setting the record straight about his allegations that more than N30 trillion has been lost, stolen or unaccounted for under Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala’s watch in the last four years.  
Soludo is expatiating on his claims in response to president Goodluck Jonathan‘s response on the matter, in which he stated that Soludo’s claims are illogical. Jonathan’s statement is contained in a ThisDay article titled, “Jonathan Replies Soludo over missing N30 trillion claim,” Premium Times reports.
In the article, Jonathan stated:
“Not too long ago I read in one of the papers, I think Vanguard, that former chief economic adviser to President Obasanjo who also went to become a CBN governor… Soludo is a professor and first class material. Yes, making a first class in economics, he is a brilliant person. His secondary school records are fantastic. So by all standards he is a brilliant person. So the Vanguard wrote that he accused Ngozi; that N30 trillion was stolen under the watch of Ngozi in four years,” the president said.

APC just sent out this press statement. Read below...
We have received information that Femi Fani Kayode has paid some boys to mobilize Nigerians in the UK to protest against Gen. Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday (26/02/2015) at Chatham House.

The bad light synergy was revealed by one is his agent, and we craving to ask why? Gen. Buhari is to present a lecture on the same day at Chatham House, London titled: “Prospects for Democratic Consolidation in Africa: Nigeria's Transition”. We hereby urge Nigerians home and abroad to be red alerted of every antics of PDP and its nefarious agents. Femi Fani Kayode attitude is known to all. We cannot afford to keep quiet and let him play by his evil antics.
