Man Becomes A Millionaire Overnight After Meteriote Falls Through His Roof

Published

on


According to an interesting publication made by www.independent.co.uk, an Indonesian man with a modest profession has kissed poverty goodbye after he became £1.4m richer, all because a meteorite crashed through the roof of his home.

Here’s the rest of the story as published by the reputable UK website;


Josua Hutagalung was working on a coffin outside his house in the town of Kolang when the 2.1kg rock came hurtling through the tin veranda outside his living room.


After recovering from the noise, the 33-year-old found the piece of space debris by digging into the soil in his garden. “The sound was so loud that parts of the house were shaking too. And after I searched, I saw that the tin roof of the house had broken,” he told Indonesia’s Kompas newspaper. “When I lifted it, the stone was still warm.”

The meteorite is carbonaceous chondrite, an extremely rare variety estimated to be 4.5 billion years old – and reportedly worth around £645 per gram. Mr. Hutagalung told The Sun he sold the rock to US meteorite expert Jared Collins – who then sold the item to a US collector, currently storing it at the Centre for Meteorite Studies at Arizona State University.

Although the coffin maker did not give the precise purchase sum, it is understood to be over £1m. Mr Hutagalung said he now had enough to retire and plans to build a church in his community. “I have also always wanted a daughter, and I hope this is a sign that I will be lucky enough now to have one,” he said.

Published

On the heels of Burna Boy’s consecutive Grammy Awards nomination, rapper Illbliss has confidently stated that the African Giant is the greatest Nigerian artiste presently.

Illbliss believes the debate which often pervades on social media should be put to rest since the ‘Twice As Tall’ album creator deserves all the accolades for achieving this unprecedented feat. Illbliss thinks there’s no question about this since the Grammy nominations validate the fact that Burna Boy is in a league of his own.


Making a new post on Twitter, Illbliss said Burna Boy’s level now is beyond spaceship and his craft is second to none. He wrote;

Former Big Brother Naija housemate Khafi Kareem, as taken a swipe at those who expect nothing more than a baby from her, as she stated that women are more than baby making machines.


BBNaija Khafi Kareem_ “Women are more than baby making machines”


Many social media users have for some time now been ‘watching the womb’ of the reality TV star, as some flood her comment section with congratulatory messages for “being pregnant” with their first child.

Taking to social media to address those social media users, Khafi Kareem shared a lengthy post, as she dismissed claims she is pregnant and also asked people to stop putting such pressure on women.

See what she wrote below;

”The way I’m looking at the next person who drops a pregnancy comment on my post. Continue reading if you don’t want to get BLOCKED. (I’m not joking).

I’ve ignored them for the longest now but according to the womb watchers on social media I have been pregnant for over a YEAR. So let me get this off my heart. Some people have flat stomachs naturally and some people have big stomachs naturally. The latter is ME. And when I’m on my period it is even BIGGER. I don’t owe anyone a flat stomach but still I try to suck in my belly in every single picture and sometimes I do it better than others. The worst is that even when I’m proud of my ‘sucking in skills’ on a particular picture there is always SOMEONE who still comments something about pregnancy. This is a habit that HAS TO STOP.

First of all, women are more than baby making machines. A woman’s fertility or decision to start a family is for her to decide, not for you to comment on in every single picture… Must our stomachs always be the first thing you look at??

Secondly, I’m not just speaking up for myself but for women in general. You may mean well when making pregnancy remarks but it is not always a compliment. For women who have had miscarriages, have been trying unsuccessfully for a baby, or simply conscious about their weight it can be very distressing, triggering and also puts a lot of undue pressure on them. So unless someone has announced a pregnancy or told you then please be nice and DONT COMMENT OR CONGRATULATE them on one.

Trust me when the time is right I welcome pregnancy (twins please Lord!) and starting a family at God’s time. But until I’ve said I’m expecting please stop with the pregnancy comments. I’ll have no patience for them anymore and any one who writes such comments will get BLOCKED.

To those who mean well, thank you so much, I do love you all But to the amebos please be amebos elsewhere . It’s pressure enough being a woman, so let’s not add to it.”

I planned defection to APC with Anyim and NASS members – Umahi

Published

Ebonyi Governor, Dave Umahi

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state has revealed that he planned his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC) with former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator Pius Anyim and some National Assembly members from the state.

Speaking at an APC stakeholders meeting in Abakaliki, Umahi said Anyim backed out of the plan because he (Umahi) went to see President Buhari over the defection plan without carrying him along.

The Governor who revealed that the only grievance of the NASS members and other leaders was that he joined APC before them, added that the plan was for Anyim and other leaders to join him in APC two weeks after he must have successfully defected.

He said;

“They were planning to ambush me, but it is difficult to catch the air.”

On allegation of Anyim giving him N5bn to pursue his dream of becoming Governor of Ebonyi state in 2015, Umahi said;

“I was a deputy Governor, somebody occupying the highest position from the Southeast (referring to Anyim) went and arranged for a N5bn naira loan for me to prosecute the presidential election for his government. I had to sell many of my properties to pay back that money.”

He also alleged that those attacking him now also fought former Governor Martin Elechi.

Umahi added;

“Let me tell you, I’m not afraid of anybody but I respect everybody. But I have said that if God sent me, this will be the last fight in this state.

“All these people that came together to fight me, they collect contracts, they collect monthly pay, they collect vehicles. And when they are asked to bring people that worked for us, they will bring their wives, children and relations.

“Now, they are dressing words for us. We are in chapter one, in Chapter two, I will publish all that I have done for the leaders of this state.”
