Gaddafi - Wanted Dead or Alive!

The "action film" in Libya is getting fierce!

When this whole crisis started, Gaddafi proclaimed that he would fight till the last blood! He added that he would rather die a martyr! A martyr is someone who is killed for his religious or other beliefs. I need to know, IF Gaddafi is killed, would he be considered a martyr? Just wondering...

It is no longer news that at least 90% of the Libyan territory is under the control of the rebels. Although the rebels have over powered them, the "pro-Gaddafi" people are still fighting back!

Meanwhile, Gaddafi (the once upon a time bold tyrant) has gone into hiding! The guy is missing in action. LOL! Even in his mystery hide out, Gaddafi was reported to have said "We are resisting with all our strength. We will either win or become martyrs, God willing... All Libyans must be present in Tripoli, young men, tribal men and women must sweep through Tripoli and comb it for traitors."

Right now, Gaddafi has been declared WANTED, DEAD OR ALIVE. There is a reward of $1.7 million for anyone who can hand Gaddafi over to the rebels!

O boy see money... Abeg who know where dis guy dey? This is good business...

Bills Signed into Law in Lagos State!

By virtue of one of the Bills recently signed into Law by Governor B.R. Fashola, it is now an offence for a man to impregnate a woman and thereafter desert  her!

Other Bills signed into Law include amendments to provisions of the Emergency Management Agency Law,  Criminal Justice Administration in the Courts, Rules on criminal conduct. While assenting to the Bills, Fashola said the various amendments to the laws were needed in order to tackle the problem of crime and delay in administration of justice in Lagos State.

The Criminal Code used in the State was enacted as far back as 1914! O yes. It is an old Law and the need to amend it can not be over emphasized. While I want to appreciate the efforts of the Lagos State Government, I would like to say that the effectiveness of these Laws (particularly the one that affects the deserted woman) rest more on ENFORCEMENT!
