After 40 years of marriage, former Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida lost his wife and mother of his four children, Maryam Babaginda, to ovarian cancer on 27th December 2009 in an LA hospital. She was just 61. It's been five years and IBB, now 73, hasn't made an attempt to re-marry. He spoke to Vanguard about why he hasn't tried to re-marry

On what life has been like without her:
She was a real companion who got to understand and accept me for what I am and tried to make the best of me and that is what I am missing. She was the one who would look at me and say ‘you’re wrong’ and I had to accept and bury my pride and I will say ‘sorry, you’re right’. That is the sort of counseling I am missing now.

Chimamanda Adichie writes about her struggle with depression

In a new article published in UK Guardian today, award winning writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie writes for the first time about her struggle with depression. (And you thought you were the only one?) Read below...
Sometimes it begins with a pimple. A large shiny spot appears on my forehead. Or it begins with a feeling of heaviness, and I long to wear only loose-fitting clothes. Then my mood plunges, my lower back aches, my insides turn liquid. Stomach cramps come in spasms so painful I sometimes cry out. I lose interest in the things I care about. My family become unbearable, my friends become strangers with dark intentions, and cashiers and waiters seem unforgivably rude.

These insurgents have been trying to capture this town for a while now. There are reports of a fresh attack on the city of Maiduguri, in Borno by Boko Haram militants. According to reports, armed men stormed the city in the early hours of today, trying to enter Maiduguri through a suburb community called Dalwa. Loud gun fire is being heard on the streets of the northern city as many residents flee.

Al Jazeera's Ahmed Idriss, said people were fleeing the south, but also moving into Maiduguri from the surrounding areas, fearing fresh attacks from other directions.
"The fighting started at about 2:00am. The military also says it is deploying large numbers of troops to the north of the city as this could be a ploy or diversion by Boko Haram," Idriss said
Idriss added the attack could be an attempt by the group to "prove a point" following recent successes by multinational forces fighting Boko Haram in Chad and Cameroon.
