5000 well-wishers gather to watch two dogs tie the knot (photos)

If you think a canine wedding is bizarre then consider that it was no puppy affair with over 5000 guests in attendance complete with all the trappings of a traditional Hindu wedding. The unusual ceremony was held in the village of Parawa, in the northern-Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The groom, Shagun, and his bitch, Shaguniya, were dressed in children's clothes and said their vows on a purpose-built podium to raucous cheers from the crowd.

Jung, the father of the bitch, said: 'I raised her like my own daughter. Today, I am giving her hand in marriage to Shagun. I wish the couple a happy married life together.'
Excited guests danced to music played by an orchestra and traditional Indian cuisine was served to hungry revellers.

Jung gave Shaguniya a tearful send off as his beloved pet departed in the car with the groom.
Guests said the unusual ceremony was a 'historic one', which demonstrated Indian society's love for their dogs.

Photo: Nigerian man arrested in the U.S and charged with 13 counts of identity fraud

A Nigerian man, Uchenna Azubuike has been charged with 13 counts of identity fraud and held at the Thomas County Jail, Georgia. Immigration personnel have interviewed the suspect and officials with the Diplomatic Division of the U.S. attorney’s office at Macon will interview Azubuike here in mid-March.
Azubuike, 29, of 1000 Barone Ave., Atlanta was arrested after allegedly attempting to purchase two cell phones from a Vericon store using a fake passport of a woman in New York.
Employees at the Thomasville Verizon store, 13915 U.S. 19 South, became suspicious when someone using a New Jersey woman’s identification purchased phones in late February. Personnel contacted the woman and learned she had never been in Thomasville.
Verizon employees were on high alert when a man — later identified as Azubuike — entered the business two days later and purchased two iPhones valued at a total of $1,700. Police were notified.
The suspect, who had filled out paperwork, was waiting for completion of the phone transaction when police arrived. As soon as Azubuike saw police, he got in his vehicle, a 2010 Infiniti, and attempted to leave, said police detective Scott Newberry.
Azubuike refused to identity himself and was taken into custody. He was transported to the jail, where his identity was learned through fingerprints.
"He was using a fake passport of an individual from New York, New York, and was attempting to buy cell phones on the New York person’s Verizon account," Newberry explained. "On him, we found the passport he was using. We learned his identity was a different name."
The Infiniti was seized and searched at the Jail-Justice Center impound yard. Officers found 12 more passports and additional documents related to identification fraud in the car.
"They were different names and dates of birth, but his photo was on all of them," said Capt. Maurice Holmes, commander of the Thomasville Police Department Criminal Investigations Division.
Also found in the vehicle were two iPhones purchased by Azubuike using another identification at a Valdosta Verizon store. An iPad purchased in Atlanta used yet another identification. An alert issued by Thomasville Police Department reached the federal level, including the Eastern Seaboard and the Midwest.
"The feds have decided they want to adopt this case and take the case over." Detective Newberry said.
The suspect will remain incarcerated in Thomasville until he is indicted by a federal grand jury. He will then be transported a federal facility.
"He’s of Nigerian descent," Holmes added, pointing out a “long history” of fraudulent activity with a Nigerian connection.
The CID commander said that in his decades-long career in law enforcement, he has never seen an identity fraud case of this magnitude.
"When he uses an identification, he gets rid of it," Newberry said.
Azubuike is believed to have bought cell phones from Kansas to North Carolina using fraudulent identifications. Officers said the suspect fraudulently obtained cell phones from Verizon and AT&T and had data transferred from phone to phone. It is believed some phones were being shipped overseas, where new service was obtained, and the phones were sold.
"There’s also a terrorist connection that could be involved with these phones. That’s why the feds are interested in it," Holmes explained.
Police Chief Troy Rich said the Thomasville Verizon store staff is an important aspect of the case in that employees were able to stop the transaction and notify police.

'She's got courage'- Serena Williams praises rival Maria Sharapova after admitting to failed drugs test

World number one Tennis star Serena Williams has praised her fierce rival Maria Sharapova for admitting to failing a drug test in the recently concluded Australian open. The two most famous female athletes in the world have long suffered a strained relationship on and off the court.

Williams was furious her former boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov left her for Sharapova in 2012 and also resents that the world No 7 earns more commercially despite her (Serena) being a better player..

Speaking in New York on Tuesday, Williams offered some praise to Sharapova.
“I think most people were surprised, but most people were happy that she was up front. It’s just about taking responsibility, which she admitted she was willing to do. As Maria says, she’s ready to take responsibility, and that takes a lot of courage and heart. She’s always shown courage and heart (in tennis) and it’s no different.” she said
Serena Williams added she was “not concerned” that any ban could damage the sport.
“There are a lot of great stars on the WTA Tour,” claimed the 21-time Major winner. “We have a lot of young players, young US players doing really great. When the time comes someone will definitely step up and be that leader.”
Sharapova faces a ban of 2-4 years from the sport which could effectively end her career unless her legal counsel can convince the tribunal of 'mitigating circumstances'.

Ese’s Abduction: Soyinka, Falana Wants Yunusa Punished

Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr. Femi Falana, on Sunday, rebuked individuals attempting to use religion to justify the action of one Yunusa Dahiru, aka Yellow, who had abducted a 14-year old girl, Ese Oruru at her mother’s food shop, last year August in Opolo, Bayelsa State, and taken to Kano without her parents’ consent.
Soyinka and Falana at a press conference in Lagos, said the matter was purely criminal and not religious, and the crime offender should be dealt with under the law of the country.
Soyinka faulted the claim of the Director, Muslim Rights Concern and Professor of Islamic Eschatology, Ishaq Akintola, who had claimed in a newspaper publication on Sunday that Islam had no age barrier for marriage.
Sotinka said; “Culture is not static; it is dynamic and evolves. It is of humanity. There is no culture without human beings. If you say you are religious, there are others who could come to say they are holier than you are. We should take religion out of Ese’s abduction. We are talking about criminality.
“Nobody should say people are Islam-phobic. We are only against criminality. Who invokes religion in criminal matters? Who brings religion into issues of government and constitution? If you want to bring religion into a criminal matter, then, let us talk about other things. When we are talking about crime, don’t diffuse it with religion.”
He continued, “Did Shakespeare tell you that a court wants to grab Romeo and prosecute him? People bring their own intelligence into matters and think others are fools. Don’t quote Shakespeare when we are discussing criminality.
“The welfare of a child is more important than the money stolen. If you steal money, you commit crime against society but when you force a child into marriage, you have ruined her for life. When criminality is in the public domain, it becomes everybody’s business.”
He also mentioned how the society has failed Ese and said the government must protect other underage female from child marriages like the one conducted with a teenager by a former governor and now a Senator.
“Until we make an example of people like Yerima (Senator Ahmed), there will be thousands of Yunusa,” he stated.
While speaking, Falana on his part, said Yunusa did not only violate Ese’s rights to religion as enshrined in Section 38 of the Constitution, but also broke the laws contained in the Child Rights Act which Nigeria is a signatory.
The SAN added that the likes of Yerima and Akintola would not allow their teenage daughters to go into child marriage.

Falana said, “Attempt to bring religion into the matter is sheer hypocrisy. People like Akintola are playing on the intelligence of the poor. “
