Presidents. Jets. Lies. Abuse. Violence.
There’s a common thread in all those words and it’s the week that just passed. We have a carefully curated set of pictures to help you navigate anything you may have missed this past week.
Enjoy our top 10 photos below:
There should be a hashtag #NigeriansAreScum. Someone dropped this on the internet just because Vice President Osinbajo related the relationship between himself and the President to that of a father-son relationship.
This young man, Sandile Mantsoe, is currently standing trial in South Africa for allegedly beating his girlfriend to death and then burning her remains to unrecognisable levels.
The headlines read “Trump caught kissing the Pope” but in actual fact, it’s only a mural found in Rome titled: “The Good Forgives The Evil” signed by one TVBoy.
Captured here are men of the Nigeria Police in Abuja fighting what can only be their lives.
Mercy Aigbe granted an interview this week showing her face after three weeks of her husband, Lanre Gentry allegedly battering her. She says she’s still coughing and sneezing blood.
The #OpenNASS yielded some benefit this week as the Senate released their annual budget. The numbers don’t quite add up and the budget was increased by 10 billion amidst the recession and clamour for reduced government spending but it’s a success for the #OpenNASS proponents all the same.
President Buhari pictured here with the Vice President, Senate President, Governor Yari and Speaker, Yakubu Dogara a night before his trp to London for his medical follow-up.
You must have seen #BowWowChallenge at some point on the internet this week. Up there is the photo that started it. Bow Wow posted it with a caption from which a lot of people implied he was lying about travelling aboard the private jet even as someone had seen him aboard a commercial plane on the same day. This led the mean citizenry of social media to mock him using creative visual lies of their own.
Davido welcomed baby Hailey, his secnd child this week and he kept us all in the loop via his Snap Chat.
And finally, Zahra Buhari and her husband, Ahmed Indimi did not spend the week on the good side of public opinion after Indimi posted this photo of the couple on Instagram alighting from a Presidential jet. “What were they doing flying taxpayers’ property?” was the question but they still haven’t answered.
