TRENDING: Photos Of Couple Who Looked ‘Uninterested’ On Their Wedding Day

Photos of a bride who observers say looked very sad on her wedding day are trending on social media. The photos have sparked a debate online as to why the couple appeared to be unhappy about the wedding.

Some facebook users argued the two were probably being forced to get married by their relatives.

Some suggested the woman was marrying the man just for his money, hence her apparent sadness.

A Facebook user, Leonard Monikey, claimed the bride settled for the groom after ignoring other men that approached her in her youth.

“She spent her 20s + early 30s being a radical Feminist on social media, saying she will not marry a guy who earns less dan #200K a month… but see where it ended her,” he said.

Some however, condemned the attempt by social media users to poke their nose into the affairs of the newly-wed.

“They are married and that is what matters,” Facebook user Uzoamaka Obiakor said.

Keep these documents at hand if you’re driving on Ghana roads

If you don’t want the Ghana Police to harass you or take a bribe from you, there are some particular documents you should always have in your car.

Most people might think that they can get pulled over in Ghana for driving recklessly, knocking someone off or missing a taillight.

Ghana Police hustle


Contrary to this belief, some determined Ghanaian cops, especially the corrupt ones, can pull you over for no apparent reason just to drill you over some things.

These clashes with them can usually drag on for terrifying LONG hours unless you decide to give in and offer them some bride.

But if you’re as strong headed as we are and not ready to part with your cash in this economically challenging Ghana, here are the documents and certificates you should readily have at hand.

1. Driver’s License

Ghana Drivers' License

Do we even need to say this? You NEED a drivers’ license to drive!!!


2. Road Worthiness Certificate

Ghana Roadworthy Sticker

Just to prove that your car deserves to be on the streets. But these cops will never ask this of some rickety “trotros”.

3. Vehicle Insurance Certificate

Some Insurance Companies in Ghana

This sticker is usually visibly placed on the windshield. Just make sure it is up-to-date.


4. Proof of Ownership


Do you own the car? Some overzealous police can request this and with good reason too.

5. Vehicle License

Vehicle License

Similar to the Driver’s License, also provided by DVLA

And always remember this documents must always be updated – when and where they need to be – and not expired.

This police officer was badly beaten by a gang in Tema

Being a police officer in Ghana comes with its perks and likewise, its dangers.

GRAPHIC CONTENT: The following images may be disturbing to some viewers. Viewers discretion is strongly advised

Police brutality against criminals and even unsuspecting persons have been on the rise in Ghana, but brutality against the police is almost unheard of in the country.

However, in what seems like a bizarre mob attack, Constable Emmanuel Baafi of the Kpone Police Force was brutalised by a group of young men reportedly having been numbered around 15.

Asamoah Gyan fails medical at Reading

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan will not play for Reading FC in the English Championship this season as he has failed a medical.

A local website, Get Reading, reports that the 30-year old was set for a loan spell from Chinese side Shanghai SIPG, but due to the fact that he needed eight weeks to reach full fitness, Reading would not take the gamble on him.


Gyan, who has been in the south-east of England for the past two days, has been looking for a club before the transfer window ends at midnight on Wednesday.

There was talk that he will make a return to Sunderland, where he scored 10 Premier League goals during a two-year spell from 2010, but it cooled off quickly. Chances of going to Newcastle, like the Black Cats, could not work also because of wage considerations, Joy Sports understands.

The striker joined Shanghai in 2015 in a deal that made him one of the highest-paid footballers in the world at the time, with a weekly wage of £227,000.

Gyan has been beset by injury worries in the past few years, which have been the main cause of his relegation to the backround at his Chinese Super League club.

A succession of thigh and knee problems meant the club were unable to rely on his services, although his goal return had been decent when fit.


BREAK: @getreading reports that Ghana capt Asamoah Gyan has failed his medical at @ReadingFC and deal is off.

flood 3

A 20-hour rain pounded the city of Lagos yesterday resulting into several flooded homes and roads all around the state.
The Southwest witnessed one of the heaviest rains in recent times. It destroyed properties worth millions of naira.

From Osun to Ogun and Lagos states, the torrential rain, which started on Saturday night, lashed cities and towns non-stop.

Many vehicles were stalled on the roads as parts of Lagos, the nation’s commercial capital, were flooded.

From Ilasamaja to Ojuelegba, Mushin, Agege Motor Road, Iyana-Ipaja and Lagos-Abeokuta expressway, the roads were flooded.

Residents of highbrow areas of Victoria Island, Lekki and Ajah were not spared .

Many houses in Surulere were flooded. Residents were seen scooping water out of their homes.

Many commuters were stranded due to heavy traffic caused by the flood.

Agege Motor road from Ladipo to Ikeja along was worst-hit.

The intensity of the flood left many motorists in fears.

Many of the property destroyed by the accompanying flood affected Lagos, more than other states but there was no report of death or of collapsed building, according to the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), whose men were deployed across the state in response to emergency calls by citizens.

LASEMA General Manager Michael Akindele, said the Agency’s Emergency Response Teams were sent out to assess the affected areas to avert worst disaster.

He noted that the flood was accentuated by blockage of some of the major drainages in the affected areas advised Lagosians not to panic but ensure they clear the drainage in their neighbourhood to allow free flow of water.

In its situation report, LASEMA said: “The Agency received several distress calls regarding flooding activities which seriously affected some areas in the state as a result of the heavy downpour that started last night (Saturday) at about 8.40 pm.

“Several streets in Oworonshoki, Ifako, Ikorodu and Lekki axis were seriously affected by the heavy downpour.”

“Many properties and items worth several millions of naira were also damaged, but no life was loss or collapse of any building.

“The Affected street around the Oworo axis include: Fasas Ojomu,Ogunyomi, Aabiola, Akewusola, Adebanmwo, Unity, Oduduwa, Agberin, among others, While Hassan Street in Owutu (Ikorodu) and other areas were affected in the Ikorodu axis.

In a statement, Lagos State Commissioner for the Environment Dr. Babatunde Adejare, urged the people to remain calm saying that necessary steps had been taken to avert flood disaster.

He said the government had in recent times carried out intensive tour of some flood prone communities in the state to clear blocked drainages and canals.

The commissioner wondered why any right thinking person would be dumping refuse on water courses and drainages created for free flow of storm water, saying the numerous campaigns against such practice was in the interest of the residents.

“Canal is a storm water channel for the conveyance of storm runoffs, they are God’s natural protection for holding water during massive flood and it is not a place for anybody to build a house or dump refuse. Those in the habit of doing such must stop henceforth,” Adejare said.

He warned that the government would no longer tolerate the building of illegal structures along channel right of ways in the state.

Adejare urged residents living on wetlands and flood prone areas to be cautious and careful, urging them to limit their movement if possible and to move to higher ground if need be.
