Fire at children’s hospital in Hyderabad leaves one infant dead, five critical

The five critical infants have been shifted to nearby hospitals.

A three-month-old infant died in Hyderabad after a fire broke out at the city’s Shine Children’s Hospital, located in LB Nagar early on Monday morning. Five other infants who were in the neonatal ICU (NICU) of the paediatric hospital are said to be critical and have been shifted to nearby hospitals, officials said.

Officials of the Telangana State Disaster Response and Fire Services Department said they received an alert about a small fire on the third floor of the hospital at 2:59 am. An estimated 48 patients were admitted to the hospital, who have since then been shifted out.

“The fire broke out due to a short circuit in the air conditioning unit inside the NICU,” said a fire department official. According to him, none of the fire safety equipment in the hospital was functional.

“The room didn’t even have a smoke detector or a fire alarm. Even the hospital staff were not trained to handle the situation,” the officer added.

The hospital has been running since 2000 and is located right opposite the LB Nagar police station, and falls under the Rachakonda commissionerate.

“By the time the fire department arrived, the building had been evacuated by the LB Nagar police. It was a small fire that the staff could have put out but as it was an AC room, the staff did not know how to open the vent to let the smoke out. The booster pumps at the hospital were not functioning and nor did anyone know how to operate it,” the fire official said.

Fire department officials said that as per the fire safety norms, the responsibility of enforcing norms in buildings with a height of less than 15 meters is with the local municipality. The Shine Hospital is less than 15 meters, and the responsibility of ensuring that the fire safety equipment was functional is with the GHMC, the fire safety official added.

Representatives of the hospital refused to comment

Gorilla swallowed N6.82m we made during Sallah — Kano Zoo Official

An official of the Kano Zoological Gardens has reported to the Kano State Police Command that a gorilla under his watch and other officials has swallowed the N6.82 million they made during the last sallah festivities.
The spokesman of the Kano State Police Command, Abdullahi Haruna, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, confirmed the development to BBC Pidgin Service.
According to the spokesman, the police had begun investigation into how the cash, kept over a period of five days, disappeared from the safe of the Zoo.
Haruna said 10 staff of the Zoo have been arrested in the course of the investigation.
He said among those arrested were the gateman and staff of the Finance Unit.
He said they are with operatives of the Criminal Investigation Department.
According to a Kano-based medium, Freedom Radio, an official of the zoo said it was one huge Gorilla that sneaked into the office to swallow the money.
The Managing Director of the zoo, Umar Kashekobo, refused to comment on the development.
Kashekobo said since the matter is under investigation, he will not comment on it.
He told BBC Pidgin: “The issue in under investigation.
“Many journalists have come to meet me, but I don’t want to say anything on it.
“The only thing I can say is that money is missing.”
The Eagle Online recalls that a staff of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Philomina Chieshe, in February 2018 said a snake swallowed N36 million in the Benue State office

Pastors come under fire for alleged stage-managed miracle.

The video, posted by Instagram user, nvoguhair , started with a woman saying she needed healing for her stunted right arm.

Okafor told the congregation that the woman saw three people, who pushed her in a dream and when she woke up, she developed the problem.

He asked that the camera focused on the arm, adding that the woman had been told there was no bone in her arm.

“If witches can do this, my God can do better than witches,” he added.

The woman shed tears of pain from the injury, while Okafor said he was retrieving the bones from “the household of witches.”

“Give me the bone; give me her bones,” he said and made some signs, while making a gesture for the hand to return to normal.

As the woman stretched her shrunk hand, the congregation went into jubilation with songs of worship.

However, the same woman was shown in another video clip claiming she had the same problem as another unidentified pastor prayed for her in public.

In the second video, the pastor laid hand on the woman and prayed for her while a crowd supported the prayers with heavy music playing in the background.

As the music turned acrobatic and the prayer intensified, the woman stretched her shrunk hand.

Everyone erupted in celebration of the miracle.

The videos went viral on Thursday and attracted various reactions from many Nigerians.

Some people said the woman had a peculiar “gift” and she was only making money from it.

Popular comedian, Brodashaggi , said the woman was enjoying church contracts.

“ See business o. That’s just a talent and pastors are using it to make money. Even the woman too is making money though all na talent ,” one anabel_medspa , said on Instagram.

Another Instagram user, shedamsfitness , said everyone would give account of their actions to God on the Judgment Day, urging Christians to test all spirits.

“ Naija for show! The Bible is totally complete. Judgement gonna start right from the church ,” partypacks_solution3 wrote.

Another user, mr_dbbk, said, “ You see every action on camera is scripted. How do these men of God know too well that their prayers will work at once and paid for a good camera man to get full coverage, Work and pray for the result, don’t pray and wait for result. Fake pastors everywhere. ”

On Nairaland , one sophy17, said some of the pastors’ members would still defend them despite the videos.

“ Not surprised, you suspend the use of your brain the moment you chase miracles as against working to get problems solved or things done, ” he wrote.

A man who claimed to be Okafor’s publicist and identified himself as Sunday Adeyemi, asked that the report be dropped, a request our correspondent declined.

He said the woman at the centre of the drama would be in the church on Sunday and invited our correspondent, refusing to respond to the allegation.

Later, Adeyemi asked that our correspondent write an official letter to the church for its reaction to the video.

However, an official who did not want to be quoted, confirmed that it was the same woman in the two videos.

“The woman was in our church really. But you know in this issue of deliverance, some people could be delivered here and then go back to where they stayed before and the attack would return. That was what happened to the woman,” he said.

He noted that the woman had been “completely delivered” after Okafor prayed for her and she would be in the church on Sunday.

This year’s dance contest started in September with a visit to select Nigerian universities – Nnamdi Azikiwe University (Unizik), University of Port-Harcourt (Uniport) and Adekunle Ajasin University (AAUA). Students auditioned at these universities to participate in the regional contests and those who emerged as winners were rewarded with N50,000 cash and brand new itel S15 smartphones.

As a proud sponsor of this dance tour, activities such as iGTM Trivia, social media influencer challenge and a grand finale raffle draw were hosted for users. The following users won cash and airtime during these activities. At the grand finale, attendees jostled for the grand prize of Thirty Thousand Naira, by joining the event’s chatroom which qualified them for a raffle ticket on the spot. Over 500 attending students joined the chatroom to get a chance at the star reward.

The grand finale was held at the Yaba College of technology with so many students from different parts of Lagos. The social media challenge had students take a picture of themselves using Scooper’s favourite placards and Instagram frame. These pictures were to be posted on their pages tagging Scooper and itelmobile with some of their friends. Those with the most engaging posts got rewarded with premium branded items.

After a fiercely contested dance battle, the Aji Dancers from UNILAG emerged as group winner, while Okunuga Jamal, an undergraduate student of Yabatech emerged the deserved winner of the individual category. For the raffle draw sponsored by Scooper, Yabatech OND3 Physical Education student Sonibare Damilare was extremely lucky and emerged the winner.

Sonibare Damilare’s joy knew no bounds as he couldn’t thank scooper enough. Here is what he said, ‘I didn’t expect that I could be N30,000 richer today. Thank you Scooper for making my day a great one’.

With electrifying performances from Vector, Poco Lee, DJ Mojoe, MC Prof, Tolu Daniels and many more, along with a host of other upcoming Nigerian entertainers in attendance, itel’s I Got the Moves 2.0 proudly sponsored by Scooper certainly went down as a memorable event.
