I’ve Only Travelled Out Of Nigeria To Benin Republic – Ibrahim Chatta

Actor, Ibrahim Chatta, has revealed that unlike many of his colleagues who like to brag about their trips abroad, he has only travelled out of Nigeria to the Republic of Benin.

Chatta told Sunday Scoop, “I have never travelled out of this country except to the Republic of Benin. Most times, I hear that people travel to other developed countries to beg; I don’t want to be like that. Right now, I am working on a movie and I will need to hold the premiere in the UK, America, South African and Dubai. If I eventually go to those places, I know it is for a purpose.

“There are many amazing places I’ve never visited in Nigeria too. I only go to locations from my house and return home afterwards. I’ve been invited to America and Canada for awards, but God has not given me the privilege to visit yet. I have not been to Mecca too, but it is my priority to go before I die and I am not leaving the world soon.”


He admitted that it was a great thing for one to travel but noted that Nigerians needed to love their country. The actor added, “People are always saying Nigeria cannot be good; we should stop saying that. We are not patient and patriotic enough. I have never been to the US but I can tell you nice things about New York and Washington. I saw those things in movies. Films should be avenues to project our country in a positive light but we don’t do that here. I will die in Nigeria because it is my country.”

Urging everyone to play a role to make Nigeria a better place, Chatta said, “Fifty per cent of my income goes to people, though I’m still a poor man. I work every day to survive. If I go to the bank, the staff members and people in the queue always want to favour me but I wait for my turn. I am tired of hearing people saying terrible things about Nigeria. I know many of my colleagues who are supporting one party or the other because of what they stand to gain but the love of the country should come first.”

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
