In her exact words;

“Currently, I’m homeless because my landlord asked me to move out at the end of August

“So Big brother house is my house but when I leave this house, I will start looking for another one hopefully but my things are presently with my friend.

“So Biggie please I cannot be kicked out so soon. Let me make at least N1m to for house rent in a nice area in Lagos.

“Island is not for me, just the mainland,” 


This is not the first time Laycon has said something regarding Kiddwaya and Erica. This time, he discloses that pains and awkwardness arise whenever he sees the two of them together.

When he was asked during his diary session about the situation he finds himself with, he revealed from the exact words he replied with that:

“When I see Erica and Kiddwaya together, I feel a kinda way, I feel kinda awkward and pained. Gut I still feel like moving forward for me, I am only going to fell better, and I’d be fine''.
Watch moment he revealed it to Big Brother;



A Nigerian man has taken to social media to express his feelings towards police officers in the country. according to the man, they broke the curfew rule because of the kind of holdup that usually surfaces in Lagos.

Now, from the video, it could be noticed that some Nigerians were told to remain in a cell until some of them became visibly unwell. The video shows that there was nothing like social or physical distance. The police officers are further accused that they collected bribes to set them free. 

Watch video below;



Two days back, an explosion occured in the capital city of Lebanon which has killed over 150 people and injured about 4000 people. A Nigerian identified as Mrs. Obasi Nkiru was said to be at the scene when the explosion occurred. Luckily for her, she survived the explosion. 

She claimed to have walked past a high number of fatalities after escaping from a four-storey building. She feared that surviving the whole incident will be almost unfeasible. Luckily, her fellow Africans helped her get to the hospital for treatment. 

She didn't end there, she also claimed that before she could receive treatment in the hospital, it almost took two hours because of a large number of people who were also present at the hospital. Up till this moment, her body still has some attached broken glasses, so she took to the internet to plead with good citizens of Nigeria to come to her aid. She also begged Nigerians to assist her return home.

Big Brother Lockdown season 5 got more interesting as Nengi discloses to fellow housemates, Prince and Kaisha that she saw sperm stain.

The reason why she said it was when the three of them started discussing someone getting pregnant in the house and that person will cope with the situation. 

In her words;

“This one I am seeing cum stains, I don’t know where it’s coming from” 
Watch moment she revealed it;




If you could recall, Kiddwaya and Erica seem to have sex and good romantic times together. Well, a new update that came up on August 5, 2020, from Erica herself reveals to her flirt partner, Kiddwaya that they should just be friends. 

 In her exact words;

 “My brain cannot handle this relationship in this house. I don’t think I’m ready to handle a relationship here.

“Let’s just go back to the way we were, just friends.”

It is still unknown why she made the decision, though it is speculated that it is as a result of the discussion she had with Laycon. 


Things seem to be getting very intense in the house as it was captured yesterday evening when two housemates in the person of Prince and Ozo clashed in the house

From what the video interpreted, it seems Prince walked out of the drama practice, which led to Ozo overreacting. The housemates were said to be preparing for a presentation that will hold today, August 6ht, 2020. 

Prince later apologized to other housemates for his actions after being instructed from the current head of house, Ozo. 

The video can be seen below;





On Wednesday, August 5, 2020, Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) took to social media to report 457 new cases of coronavirus.  

In their report, Lagos which is the epitome of the deadly virus, came out on top with 137 new cases, while Abuja, the capital city came out with 76 new cases. 

Also, according to their report, the other states with new cases include Plateau – 40, Rivers – 35, Enugu – 34, Oyo – 25, Abia – 23, Delta – 12, Edo and Ebonyi – 11, Cross River and Kwara – 10, Kaduna – 9, Anambra – 7, Ogun – 5, Imo and Bauchi – 3, Osun and Nasarawa – 2, Kano and Ekiti – 1.

Currently, NCDC has confirmed a total of 44,890 cases of coronavirus while the number of fatalities is currently 927. Recovered patients in the country seem to increase on a daily basis as it is currently 32,165 from the report.

See the total number of cases from each state;



Nigerians have been left in shock recently after cases of covid-19 kept reducing for the past few days, but the PTF recently gave reasons for the low number of cases. 

Earlier today being August 5th, 2020, President Buhari had a brief discussion with the PTF on how they can fight off the deadly virus from the country. As of last week, they extended the ease of lockdown by one week, so by tomorrow, we expect new updates on the third phase of ease of lockdown. 

However, it is now claimed by the chairman and secretary to the government, Boss Mustapha that the Sallah celebration which held last week caused a reduced number of tests daily. 

In his words;

 ''If you noticed, as we celebrated those discharges, there has also been a decrease in the testing. In the last couple of days, we tested just barely 2,000 across the nation, but we have a testing capacity of much more thousands than 2,000.

Another reason is that everybody is still in Sallah mood, even the essential workers. Remember when I talked of fatigue, this is part of it. But I know that in the next couple of days, the testing will be rampant because people would have come out of the Sallah celebrations and come back to work.

The sub nationals and local governments will begin to go into the communities to search because this is the point at which you have to go into the local communities and begin to search.

If you don’t do that, so much is happening as a result of the community transmission that has been cascaded into the local communities that if you wait for it to present itself, it will present itself in a very explosive manner and we can get into a panic mode.

We don’t want to have that. That is why are encouraging the state governments to go into the local communities to ensure that they search for those infected with this virus, test them, if they are positive, isolate them and provide care for them.”

On the part of the third phase of ease of lockdown, he revealed that by tomorrow, Thursday, 6th of August, new directives will be released;

As for the content of the report, it will be premature for me to talk about it because we submitted a report, we have submitted recommendations and so we have to leave for Mr President to take a decision. By the time I receive his approvals, non-approvals on the recommendations we have made, we will be able to speak to the Nigerian people tomorrow (Thursday).'' 


Host of Big Brother was questioned on social media why he is yet to shake major tables among the housemates, and his reply was that he was accused last season of influencing the game with too many questions. 

This question came along as a result of what has been going on in the house currently which includes fights, gossips, relationships, and so on. 

Check the screenshot of the tweet below;



 


Author, Reno Omokri has seriously hit fans of Big Brother to stop teaming up with Nengi, Dorathy, and co, rather team up with inspirations like Otedola and Dangote.

He also called for the reality show to be banned from airing because it has negative impacts on the youths today.  

He took to Twitter to express what he feels about fans of Big Brother;


“You have not formed #TeamDangote, or #TeamElumelu, or #TeamOtedola, to ask to be mentored, so you can grow in business. Rather, you form #TeamNengi and co, just to discuss big buttocks, and what wont add value to your lives in the name of #BBNaija!”


As of yesterday, August 4, 2020, there was a huge explosion that rocked the capital city of Lebanon, precisely in Beirut. Currently, according to strong reports, at least 100 people have passed away whole more than 4,000 people have been left with serious injuries of the blast. 

It is now revealed that the cause of the explosion was as a result of welder who was at work. There was highly explosive sodium nitrate which wasn't far off from where the welder was working. The explosive sodium nitrate was placed in a warehouse, which resided in an area where the harbour was located. 

Reports also coming in states that the result of the explosion which seemed similar to that of a nuclear bomb was when the welder ignited the chemicals after sparkling fire. 


 


Heavy chested housemate, Dorathy who is currently the deputy head of house for the third week running recently discloses that she helps Ozo make the right decision.

While having a conversation with Lucy, she further revealed the love triangle between herself, Ozo, and Nengi. 

Dorathy disclosed that Ozo intends not to be with Nengi after noticing he was being played. Dorathy on the other hand said she totally respects his decision.

Watch how Dorathy discussed this with Lucy;



Previous head of house and current housemate, Lucy has admitted that she intends to leave the TV show. She disclosed this while having a conversation with fellow housemate, Dorathy. 

Her reason was that she couldn't take the manner at which some housemates choose their favorites ahead of her suggestion for an upcoming task. 

In her words;

 “I’ll rather not be here than cause so many things in Biggie’s house.

“Let me just leave before I cause problems

“I would learn from outside I don’t want to be seeing some certain things.”


It is probably stale news that housemate, Laycon, has been hanging out with fellow housemate, Erica. 

Recently, he disclosed to TrikyTee and Prince that whenever he spends some quality time with Erica and Kidd comes to kiss her or hold her, he finds it awkward and irritating. 

In his words;

“I like Erica, I like her and i love spending time with her.. but there’s Kidd. Erica and I might just be having a discussion and he’ll just come, grab her waist and start kissing her. I don’t even get jealous anymore, i just find it irritating, disrespectful and awkward.”

 According to the national security adviser in the person of Babagna Monguno, the Nigerian presidents intend to revise completely the Nigerian's security sector because the confidence is very low and he aims to bring back that level of confidence from citizens. 

The national security adviser revealed that when they met at the statehouse, President Buhari discloses his plans to the service chiefs. 

Also, words from the NSA reveals that;
 
“The president is angry over the declining security situation. At the last meeting, he mentioned it. 

“What he said today is virtually a reaffirmation of what he said the first time. Yes Mr President said you are doing your best, as far as I’m concerned, but there’s still a lot more to be done. I’m more concerned about the promise we made to the larger Nigerian society and I am ordering an immediate re-engineering of the entire security apparatus.

“This is something that I believe will be done in a very short time, but I just want us to keep hope alive.I know how everybody feels, I know how Nigerians feel, definitely the president is not oblivious of the fact that securing the nation is a primary responsibility of government and I believe in his sincerity, but again, since he’s not an octopus, since he’s not a spirit, if he delegates to people, then the onus is on them to actually fulfil the legitimate expectations of the larger Nigerian society.”

For some weeks, scholarship students abroad have complained bitterly about how they survive and pay their fees after being abandoned by NDDC. 

Charles Odili, the NDDC Director released a statement which has the title 'NDDC invites President Buhari to Commission Signature Project' that every student would receive his or her payment before the week elapses.

“Under the Commission’s finance protocol, only the Executive Director (Finance) and the Executive Director (Projects) can sign for the release of funds from the vommission’s domiciliary accounts with the Central Bank of Nigeria.

“With the death of Chief Etang, the remittance has to await the appointment of a new EDFA. Senator Akpabio, the Honourable Minister, said President Buhari who has been briefed on the protest by students at the Nigerian High Commission in London, has ordered that all stops be pulled to pay the students by the end of this week. We expect a new EDFA to be appointed this week. As soon as that is done, they would all be paid.”

I Just wanted to be his friend, but he told me it’s me he wants.

On Monday, 3rd of August, 2020, NCDC reported that they were 288 new cases of coronavirus. 

The NCDC stated that Lagos which currently has the highest cases in Nigeria recorded 88 new cases, while other states such as Abuja recorded 25 new cases, Kwara - 33, Osun – 27, Enugu – 25, Abia – 20, Kaduna – 17, Plateau and Rivers – 13, Delta – 10, Gombe – 8.

Confirmed cases in Nigeria has now risen to 44,129 while the fatality rate is currently at 896. About 20,663 patients have since been discharged after recovering from the virus. 

 The images seen below shows the number of confirmed cases in each state:




 


Government of Ogun State has recently disclosed that all students will run a COVID19 test free of charge, irrespective of whether you attend private or public schools. This was recently disclosed after reports came in earlier that students will pay a whooping sum of 25,000 Naira for a COVID Test. 

Parents especially in Private schools were not happy with the update and decided to express their frustration on Sunday. Now, a reversal has been made by the governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, stating that it is free for all returning students. 

Read the statement below;


The State has been very apprehensive about the issue of school opening even for exit students. Data from other countries, where schools have resumed show that community transmission in school environments is a major concern. Even countries with strongerhealth care facilities than ours are being very cautious.

In line with the Federal Ministry of Education recommendation and WASSCE timetable, we decided to open our schools on the 4thAugust 2020 for SS3 students only. We put in place guidelines that would ensure that our students resume in a safe environment.

In our pre-opening engagements with stakeholders, opening of boarding houses was discussed. Our State has one of the largest population of boarding students in the country, coming from all over the Country. After consultations with health professionals, we concluded that testing the children for COVID-19 before admittance will reduce the risk of community transmission. This is to reassure parents and even teachers of the safety of everybody concerned.

The State planned and provided testing, free of charge, for boarding students in our public schools and allowed for the management and parents of private schools to make their arrangements to get COVID tests. The two Ogun State run laboratories have a capacity for about 500 tests a day and conduct free tests for traced contacts or symptomatic patients. To meet the additional demand for the expected number of boarding students, the statement from the Ogun State Ministry of Education, Science and Technology listed some private test centers which set up sampling points in some of our Health facilities.

These private laboratories have been accredited by NCDC and Lagos State Government for walk-in tests and charge N50,400 per test but I understand that the Ministries of Health and Education negotiated this to N25,000 for boarding students in private schools that may wish to use them. There is no financial benefit to the State Government.

After reviewing these developments, I have today immediately directed that the Government Laboratories carry out test for all returning SS3 boarding students at no cost. I have also directed that all those who have paid for tests be refunded.

The health of our children remains our utmost priority, however in view of the total number of boarding students to be tested (5,340private and 500 public), and bearing in mind the limitation of our installed testing capacity of 500 tests per day, it may not be feasible for all boarding students to get tested and get their results prior to resumption or even exams which commence on 17th August 2020.

Consequently the State Government has therefore stepped down the COVID-19 test as a mandatory requirement for returning students in our exit classes. We therefore enjoin Private School owners to exercise their duty of care to their pupils. The admittance of students into boarding house in private secondary schools will be at the discretion of the management and the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) of such private schools.

Ogun State Government recommends that students who do not have to stay in the boarding house should attend school from home, especially those with underlying health conditions.

I have also directed the provision of face masks to all students in both private and public schools.


This week Head of House was finally given to a male individual, in the person of Ozoemena. At the arena in which a game occurred, he defeated his fellow housemates which eventually made him the winner.

Now he was asked to pick his deputy and he decided to go for Dorathy. When Ozoemena was asked who he will pick as his second and third choice, he chose Nengi and Erica respectively. 

The next eviction which holds this coming Sunday will not include Ozoemena and Dorathy respectively as both are currently the head of house and deputy. 

Nonetheless, the reaction from Nengi was so obvious that she was not pleased with Ozo choice. 

The photos below shows her reaction when she found out Ozo chose Dorathy as his deputy.
