I have petitioned the minister of health & the law makers of the house of assembly to consider & ultimately pass a bill on the subsidising of the cost of dialysis.

Photos: Wife attempts to stab husband to death in Lagos

As I received from a LIB reader. Read below...
"I want to share a real story with you which happened over the weekend about a couple that live in Olowora. Isheri, Lagos Mr and Mrs Funsho Makinde who on Friday night in their flat had a heated argument which lead to the wife stabbing the husband on the thigh and arm with a big knife on a vein that led to the artery (and apparently this is not the first time she's pulled a knife on him)
My grieve here is that this woman is still allowed to walk on the streets of Lagos. It's absurd even the police men who came to the crime scene and took pictures, visited the man at emergency room in the hospital (LASUTH) after collecting 6 pints of blood, they still did not arrest her even though I believe they had enough evidence to do so...
