Death Toll In New Zealand Shooting Hits 53, Nigerians Mock FG Over Concern

Accounts emerged on Sunday of heroic attempts to tackle a gunman who slaughtered 50 people at two mosques in New Zealand, as authorities prepared to begin releasing the bodies of victims to their families for burial. The death toll, meanwhile, has risen to 53.

Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist, was charged with murder on Saturday. Tarrant was remanded without a plea and is due back in court on April 5 where police said he was likely to face more charges.

Friday’s attack in the city of Christchurch, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern labeled terrorism, was the worst ever peacetime mass killing in New Zealand.

Ardern also said she wanted to talk to Facebook, as footage of the attack on one of the mosques was broadcast live on Facebook, and a “manifesto” denouncing immigrants as “invaders” was posted online via links to related social media accounts minutes before the violence began.

Amid the shock, outrage and recriminations that have consumed New Zealand over the past two days, tales of heroism and self-sacrifice emerged.

Abdul Aziz, 48, was hailed for confronting the shooter at the second mosque and preventing more deaths.

Aziz, originally from Afghanistan, ran outside after the shooting started and picked up a shotgun that the gunman had dropped. The gun had no shells in it, he said.

“I chased him,” Aziz said. “He sat in his car and with the shotgun in my hands, I threw it through his window like an arrow. He just swore at me and took off.”

Another man, Naeem Rashid from Pakistan, was seen on the gunman’s video confronting the shooter before he was killed, the BBC reported. Rashid’s 21-year-old son, Talha, was also killed.

Meanwhile, after the Federal Government had continuously commiserated with New Zealand over the death of over fifty persons, Nigerians have continually mocked the national government for showing more concern on the deaths in New Zealand over the continued killings in Southern Kaduna.

The Federal Government, through information from presidential aides, commiserated with the government and people of New Zealand over the deaths and prayed God to grant the families of the victims the fortitude to bear the loss.

Many Nigerians, meanwhile, took to twitter to handle to ask Federal Government to remove the log in its eyes before looking at a speck in the eyes of its neighbor.

@Mr_Oscar tweeted: “they have come again; Nigeria is boiling in southern kaduna and we are here mourning with others. We should remove the huge log in our eyes before we see properly to remove the speck in New Zealand.”

Also tweeting, @Musa Idris wrote: “Big fool; Nigerias are dying in their numbers particularly in Kaduna and we are here commiserating with New Zealand. Are we not big fool?

Exclusive: Oral Sex Sends 44 year Old Woman Into Spasm of Stroke.

While so many women can give anything to have their V region licked, it turned a harrowed experience for a woman in United Kingdom when her partner was performing oral sex on her and she suddenly suffered stroke and passing out on her point of orgasm.

Medics at West Middlesex University Hospital in Isleworth in West London said the patient was unconscious for three minutes after first suffering a headache during oral sex.

Her partner, whose gender was not revealed, said they noticed during sex that “her body was stiff”.

Doctors this week wrote in a British Medical Journal case report: “On closer history taking, the patient reported nearing orgasm while receiving oral sex from her partner before losing consciousness.

“Her partner estimated she was unconscious for two to three minutes, with no convulsive activity reported. She had otherwise been well preceding the event.”

Doctors initially thought she had suffered a seizure. They sent the woman for a CT scan and it revealed a “trace of acute subarachnoid blood” — a type of stroke that causes bleeding in the space around the brain. The patient’s bleed was caused by a small aneurysm, a bulge on a blood vessel like a balloon or bubble that bursts.

In the report, the doctors acknowledged that sexual activity has been “well-described” as a cause of blood vessels bursting because it increases blood pressure. But they said past studies have only seen this effect during full-blown sex, rather than during oral sex.

They wrote: “Older studies with [artery] monitoring during coitus demonstrate that during sexual activity blood pressure, as well as heart rate, is very [liable to change], with particular rises during orgasm.”

The woman was revealed to be a regular smoker, occasional drinker, asthmatic and had suffered malaria in her brain in her 20s, but these were not directly linked to her stroke in the report.

The woman spent two weeks in hospital in October 2018 before being discharged. Four months after her ordeal, the woman was reported to be well and still having check ups at the hospital.

 “As I am talking to you now, I am on my way back to Bauchi after we finished a painting work somewhere outside Bauchi,” he said.

According to him, his decision to drink water from the gutter if President Muhammadu Buhari wins re-election was a promise, he took in the presence of people which he fulfilled.

 “It is true, I made the promise before the elections and I fulfilled it and I have no regrets,” he added.

” I have spoken to him earlier, Alhamdulillah for his life, his life will in sha Allah be moved to the #NextLevel, same with millions of Nigerians. Aliyu did that for pure love, and he will see purest love in return” he tweeted
