Nigerian Girl Dies After Failed Butt Enlargement Surgery In Thailand

The unfortunate incident was said to have happened after a failed £2,000 butt enlargement surgery in Bangkok, Thailand. Dailymail made it known that Anietie, who is Joy’s older brother, living in Nigeria, revealed that the family didn’t even know she’d traveled to Thailand.

“We don’t really know what went wrong, we only know what is in reports in the media.” Anietie said.

Aniete however made it known that preparations are in top gear to bring her remains home. The young lady, according to UK Telegraph, relocated to the UK from Nigeria in 2007 and to live with her mother in Thamesmead. She however died on October 23rd after visiting a clinic called SP Clinic in Thailand which she got to know about through the internet.


She visited SP clinic on October 14 with the hopes of having a fuller, bigger and enhanced bottom. An operation in which her wounds became infected after few days. This made her to go back for a corrective surgery, or probably removing the silicon implants.

But unfortunately, she was found dead on the operating table with a three inch-long stitched incision on her tail bone after medical staff found they were unable to resuscitate her. However, Thai officials investigating her death believe her operation had been delayed to ensure Miss Williams had not eaten anything beforehand and that as a result, the operation began after the clinic’s legal closing time of 7pm.

It is believed Miss Williams had long struggled with her self-esteem and been bullied at school before choosing to undergo an operation on her nose to improve her looks. She was said to have stayed at the £11-a-night Vabua Asotel hotel which is used by the clinic as accommodation for its patients.

Fifty-one-year-old Sompob Sansiri, who’s the doctor who carried out the surgery, has been arrested and accused of negligence due to his acts of carrying out operations at nights without license. He has been charged with recklessness causing death and could face 10 years jail term if found guilty.

Furthermore, the clinic has been closed for 60 days now as investigations are still ongoing. Thailand is a world-leader in cosmetic surgery tourism with many companies offering procedures at discounts of up to 60 per cent. The industry earned the country £2.68billion in 2013 alone.

One of the deceased’s friend who spoke with UK Telegraph said she had suffered bullying and low self esteem issues while they were in school and that she was never happy with herself.

“She was a really, really nice girl. She was very friendly and caring. She was always helping her mum with her brothers. She was a very bright girl and did well at school. She was a bit shy and quiet and I knew in later years there was something wrong and upsetting her.

At school she had been bullied over her appearance and she went for surgery on her nose and face. Last time I saw her it was obvious she had had cosmetic surgery. She was fine before, she didn’t need to. She was fine the way she was but she just wasn’t happy. She had no self esteem and I guess she felt she needed to do it. She was just never happy with herself.”

Police are now waiting for the postmortem result which would determine if the doctor will be charged for medical negligence.


Victoria Beckham named entrepreneur of the year

Victoria Beckham has topped a list of Britain’s top 100 entrepreneurs by Management Today magazine.

They praised her “finely tuned business acumen” for expanding her fashion empire into a business with a £30m turnover and a staff of 100.

Editor Matthew Gwyther accepted that some may “scoff” at the fact that the former Spice Girl came top.

But he said she had created “a company that is both real and wildly successful”.

Gwyther admitted “some will say she’s never been taught how to cut a pattern, or iron a pleat on a fashion course… Doubters will claim she’s just the wife of the world’s most famously over-tattooed ex-footballer. It’s all come to her far too easily.”

But he pointed out that “celebrity has long been a powerful commercial tool” and called her “an adept exploiter of her own celeb value”.

And he said doubters could not argue with the figures as she has achieved – a sales growth of 2,900% and employment growth of 3,233% over the past five years, adding “her numbers are impressive”.

The former Spice Girl launched her fashion label in 2008 and by 2011, she won designer brand of the year at the British Fashion Awards.

In September, she opened her first shop in London’s Mayfair.

Her company includes a lower-priced Victoria line and she also sells luxury handbags for prices up to £18,000 each.

The magazine estimated her wealth at £210m.

Last British troops leave Helmand

The last UK troops have left Helmand province in Afghanistan, as a poll suggests 68% of the UK public thought the campaign had not been “worthwhile”.

The BBC poll of 1,000 adults also found 42% thought the UK was “less safe” as a result of the 13-year campaign.

The end of UK combat operations was announced on Sunday, as the main British base Camp Bastion was handed to Afghan control.

The final troops left by air, with the last man holding the union jack.

US troops from Camp Leatherneck, which adjoined Camp Bastion, have also left, leaving Afghan forces in control of the entire site.

The BBC’s telephone poll, carried out from 24-26 October, found 14% thought the UK was safer as a result of the international intervention in Afghanistan, which began in 2001.

Responses showed 39% thought there was “no real difference”, while 5% did not know or refused to answer.

In addition, 24% said the deployment of UK troops had left Afghanistan “better off”, 25% said the country was “worse off” and 44% said there was no real difference.

In answer to another question, 31% said they were somewhat or very confident Afghanistan could “protect its citizens without the help of UK forces”, while 64% said they were not so confident or not confident at all.

Brazil elections: Dilma Rousseff promises reform after poll win

President Dilma Rousseff has promised to re-unite Brazil after narrowly winning re-election to a second term in office with 51.6% of the vote.

She said “dialogue” would be her top priority after a bitterly fought campaign against centre-right candidate Aecio Neves, who got 48.4% of the vote.

The left-wing leader said she wanted to be “a much better president than I have been until now”.

She faced mass protests last year against corruption and poor services.

But Ms Rousseff, who has been in power since 2010, remains popular with poor Brazilians thanks to her government’s welfare programmes.
Political reform

The vote split Latin America’s biggest country almost evenly in two, along lines of social class and geography.

Whereas Dilma Rousseff did well in the poorer northern states, her opponent from the Brazilian Social Democracy Party (PSDB) took many of the wealthier and more developed southern parts of Brazil.

The president said that during the campaign “the word repeated most often was change and the idea most often invoked was reform”.

“Sometimes in history, close outcomes trigger results more quickly than ample victories,” she said.

“It is my hope, or even better, my certainty that the clash of ideas can create room for consensus, and my first words are going to be a call for peace and unity,” she told a cheering crowd in the capital, Brasilia.

“Instead of widening differences and creating a rift, I have the strong hope that we can use this energy to build bridges.”

She also thanked her supporters, especially her political mentor and predecessor in office, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

“I thank from the bottom of my heart our number one militant, President Lula.”

Her Workers’ Party (PT), which has been in power since 2002, will now govern for another four-year term starting on 1 January 2015, but with a considerably weaker mandate than before.

Her lead over the Brazilian Social Democracy Party dropped from 12 percentage points in 2010 to three in Sunday’s election.

The divided nature of the vote was palpable in Sao Paulo, where disappointed supporters of Mr Neves chanted “Kick the PT out!” while PT voters waved flags and celebrated in the streets.

Mr Neves admitted defeat and thanked the “more than 50 million Brazilians who voted for the path to change”.

He said that the “overriding priority is to unite Brazil around an honourable programme worthy of all Brazilians”.

Iran hangs Reyhaneh Jabbari for murder of ‘her attempted rapist’

Iran has executed Reyhaneh Jabbari for killing a man she says had tried to rape her despite an international campaign calling for a reprieve.

Ms Jabbari’s mother Shole Pakravan confirmed her death to BBC Persian. She said her 26-year-old daughter was hanged in a Tehran prison and she was due to see her daughter’s body at the cemetery today.

Her death was described as a “travesty” by Amnesty International.

Amnesty said Ms Pakravan received a call from prison authorities on Friday, where she was told to visit her daughter for the final time before her execution at dawn on Saturday. She was granted an hour with Ms Jabbari before being made to leave.

Ms Jabbari was arrested in 2007 for the killing of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, a former employee of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence who she said tried to sexually abuse her.

Iran postpones execution of woman

She was sentenced to death by a Tehran court in 2009 and her execution verdict was upheld by Iran’s Supreme Court. Her case drew international outcry and sparked a petition urging her release, which collected over 240,000 signatures.

The court ruling says Ms Jabbari, 26, stabbed Sarbandi in the back in 2007 after purchasing a knife two days earlier.

It says the execution was carried out after Sarbandi’s family refused to pardon Jabbari or accept blood money.

The campaign and world-wide media attention granted her a last minute stay of execution on 30 September, although the reason for the postponement was never officially confirmed.

Amnesty understands Ms Jabbari admitted to stabbing the man once from the back but said another man killed Mr Abdolali Sarbandi. The group said her claim is believed to have never been properly investigated.

Raha Bahreini, Amnesty’s researcher on Iran, told The Independent: “Like many others, we are absolutely shocked by this travesty of justice. Reyhaneh’s execution is a tragic moment for many people in Iran and for the members of the international community hoping for different outcome.

“Her case personifies the outrage of many in Iran and across the globe over the use of the death penalty, which is a despicable, cruel and inhumane punishment.

“Reports and online petitions have been crying for her retrial because of the many unanswered questions hanging over her case. But at the end they once again allowed the execution and justified this by saying it lies in the hands of the family of the deceased to make the decision to spare her.”

Britain has said it is “concerned and saddened” by the execution of an Iranian woman for killing a man she claimed was trying to sexually assault her.

Foreign Office minister Tobias Ellwood said there were “questions around due process” in the case of 26-year-old Reyhaneh Jabbari, who was hanged in a Tehran prison.

He also warned that such actions would not help Iran revive relations with the rest of the world.

Man Utd 1-1 Chelsea: Van Persie’s late goal denies Chelsea a win at Old Trafford

A dismissive wrinkle of the nose and a shake of the head from Jose Mourinho as Robin Van Persie slammed an equaliser past Thibaut Courtois in the fourth minute of injury time: his team had almost held out – they should have held out – but this was still a game that said much about the difference in these two sides.

United got out of jail. They had been outplayed for long periods of the second half until, in the closing stages, the referee Phil Dowd gave a free-kick against Branislav Ivanovic for clipping the heel of Angel Di Maria and sent the Chelsea man off for his second booking. United scored from the free-kick they tossed into the area. Until then, it had looked grim for them.

For Mourinho, a point away to a traditional title challenger will not look too shabby in the cold light of day, but he will have wanted much more as his team went into injury-time looking comfortable and defending a lead given to them by Didier Drogba. The Chelsea manager took it well in the immediate aftermath, seeking out opposite number Louis van Gaal, who he worked under at Barcelona, for an embrace and a handshake.

The late goal, and the buzz as they stream out Old Trafford, is the kind of ending that they are accustomed to here at United but the bigger picture is less kind. To watch Chelsea today was to see a team ready to win a title, while United remain, for their manager, frustratingly far from the real thing.

Five minutes after half-time, Drogba drifted to the neat post pursued by the diminutive Rafael Da Silva who was wholly inadequate when it came to challenging one of the greatest headers of the ball the game has known. There were a million other details to this game, but that one seemed as resonant as any when assessing the differences between these two teams.

How Super Falcons Of Nigeria Became African Champions

Nigeria are the 2014 African Women Champions after beating Cameroon comfortably by a 2-0 margin in the final played at the Sam Nujuma Stadium.

Desire Oparanozie and Asisat Oshoala, who was the player of the competition, were the goalscorers for the Super Falcons, with both goals coming in the first half.

Desire Oparanozie, put the Super Falcons ahead in the 13th minute scoring a beautiful free kick from outside the box as Nigeria edge towards their seventh African Women’s title.

Cameroon striker, Deborah Enganamouit, was unlucky not to have levelled matters a few minutes later as her strike bounced off the cross bar having placed a ball over the Nigerian goalkeeper.

The two teams continued to attack each other with Cameroon looking to get an equalizer while Nigeria wanted another goal to make it a comfortable lead within the first 45 minutes of the match.

Cameroon came close once again as a headed effort by Michele Madeleine from the corner kick went wide much to the relieve of Nigeria.

The goal scorer, Oparanozie, combined with her teammates once again as she nearly scored the second for Nigeria with four minute before the break, but his shot failed to find the target.

Nigeria increased the scored in the 43rd minute with Asisat Oshoala scoring her fourth goal of the competition to give the Super Falcons a comfortable 2-0 lead at half time break.

In the second half, Cameroon came out firing hoping to get back into the game, but were once again unlucky not to get a goal with another effort sailing over the bar.

Their dominance was not long however, with Super Falcons able to neutralise them to remain in control of the game.

Cameroon’s technical team was forced to look from their bench as the goals failed to come.

With the match heading towards the end, Cameroon came close with an effort from substitute, Iven Mihamle’s free kick hitting the crossbar to deny them a goal.

The Nigerians on the other hand were happy to sit back and defend their lead as they failed to create any goal scoring chances in the last 10 minutes of the match.

The dying minutes of the match saw the introduction of the Super Falcons legend, Perpetua Nkwocha, who scored a hat trick in the two teams 2004 final where Nigeria won 5-0.

Francisca Ordega was player of the game.

Cameroon can find solace that they will be at the World Cup, as well Cote d’Ivoire, who beat South Africa 1-0 in the third/fourth play off.
