Serious Traffic in V/I tomorrow - Eko Atlantic City opening

There will be heavy traffic in Lagos tomorrow, especially around V/I as several dignitaries are coming for the opening of the Eko Atlantic City Phase 1 inauguration. President Goodluck, Governor Fashola and even Bill Clinton among other "dignitaries" will be in attendance. It will begin at 10 a.m so the Ikeja area may be affected as well (they should be coming in from the airport).  

Just thought to warn Lagosians as we are usually not warned in these situations and then we end up spending the day in traffic.

A Texas toddler was mauled to death by a pit bull as the canine's owner watched the bloodshed from his doorway and did nothing to stop it, according to the child's parents. Isaiah Aguilar, 2, was playing with his sister outside his home in Sabinal, Texas, shortly before the attack.

Dead Butchered woman found in Duffel bag at a grocery

All sorts of weird stuff can be found behind some grocery stores, but no one thought the duffel bag contained the body parts of a dead woman.  Two men were charged Monday in the death of an Oklahoma woman whose body was found dismembered in a duffel bag behind a grocery store last year.

Jimmy Massey and Luis Ruiz were being held without bail in the Oklahoma County Jail. The office of Oklahoma County District Attorney charged them with first degree murder in the killing Carina Saunders, who was 19 years old. Her body was discovered in a duffel bag discovered by animal welfare workers, as they picked up cats in Bethany, a suburb of Oklahoma City.The coroner's office said Saunders has died a violent death, but has not disclosed details.

Massey was already in custody on charges related to drugs. He appears to be represented by a lawyer in his drug case, Mitch Solomon, who did not return a message seeking comment.
