Popular Nigerian rapper, M.I Abaga has revealed the reason why he would not be having any kids.

The rapper made this revelation on his Twitter page after watching a Word War III prank video where a couple of kids dressed in military outfits, bursted into their parents bedrooms to give them the scare of their lives.

Though M.I Abaga might be kidding as he was quick to decide that he will not be having children because of what the three kids did to their father.

M.I Abaga made headlines a few weeks ago over his infamous tweet, where he insisted that Wizkid has achieved more for African music than Akon .

The rapper’s tweet generated a lot of controversy and backlash on Twitter with many people criticizing him for his ‘unpleasant reaction’.

A 52-year-old woman simply called Mama Vera has been arrested by the police for physically abusing and maltreating her two grandchildren between the ages of 7 and 8 at Mgbuoba in Obio/Akpor Local Government area of
Rivers State.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mama Vera allegedly stripped the two hungry grandchildren naked, doused them with pepper, tied their hands to their back and locked them in a room because they drank garri with sugar without her permission.

Eyewitnesses said concerned neighbours had to forcefully break into the house when they heard the wailing children calling for help after their grandmother had tied their hands and legs stripped them naked and bath them with ground pepper and left home for work.

Mama Vera was also accused of denying the children their rights to go to school.

Meanwhile, a lawyer, Precious Johnmark, who also witnessed the incident has called on the Rivers State Police Command and the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) to follow up the case and ensure the prosecution of Mama Vera for allegedly violating the rights of the girls.

A 50-year old woman, Mrs. Vera Henry who stole two kids to replace her missing daughter has been charged to court and remanded in prison custody in Lagos.

The alleged abduction took place along Herbert Macaulay Road in Yaba, Lagos where she accosted the victims, Mariam Jubril, 2 and Mukaila Ya’u, 10 and took them away.

However, while she was escaping with the victims to an unknown place, the police on surveillance led by the DPO, Sabo Division, suspected and trailed her before she diverted with the children into St. Dominic Catholic Church, Yaba, Lagos where the police then alerted the church security over her suspicious conduct.

The church security men then apprehended and took her to Sabo Police Division, Yaba for interrogation.

It was reported that during the interrogations, she confessed and told the police that the victims, aged 2 and 10 looked like her missing daughter as she was told by a diviner that her daughter was still alive but that her stature had reduced. She explained that she decided to pick them as they might be her daughter that was reduced to that size as she was told by the diviner.

It was gathered that while the interrogations were going on at the police station, information got to the parents of the victims – Mr. Jibril Garba and Mukaila Amidu, who then came to the police station and identified their children.
