BY UDUMA KALU
The Nigerian USA community has started their biggest manhunt for missing Tosin Oyelowo. Oyelowo, a graduate of University of Charleston West Virginia School of Pharmacy was said to have got missing on December 9th, 2011.
Contacts about her are given as Charleston Police Department, SC Missing Persons Department, Phone 843-577-7434, Email: Detective K. Stone of the Charleston Police Central Investigations Missing Persons Unit. StoneK@charleston-sc.gov.
A message on ladybrillenigeria.com said, “Yesterday, I heard one of the worst news ever. I found out that the beautiful lady whose picture is on the left, Tosin Oyelowo, went missing on Friday, December 9th in Charleston, South Carolina where she is working as a resident after graduating from the University of Charleston West Virginia School of Pharmacy last summer.
“I never even knew her personally, but I remember seeing her at several events here in Raleigh, NC (where she and her parents have lived for some years since they moved to US from Lagos, Nigeria) including her dad’s 50th birthday party some years ago.
“I remember noticing her beautiful skin and calm persona. To hear that she went missing few days ago is very shocking and painful. If I didn’t even know her personally but I’m crying as I am typing this, then I can’t even imagine what her parents, family and friends are going through right now.
“The news was sent to me as a prayer request text from a friend of mine. I, immediately, called him back to find out what happened and he told me. Heartbreaking, to say the least. My friend mentioned that he had done a google search and there was nothing about it on the news and he felt that it will be great idea to use Facebook and social media, in general, to spread the news and help increase the chance of someone finding her.
However, he wasn’t too sure if to go ahead and do that on his own. I went ahead and told him that I will go ahead and do something about putting the news out there for everyone to spread since the media will not do it (and we all know why).
To know that such a young and beautiful black lady with incredible potential is missing and there is nothing about it on google or on the news is extremely devastating. However, thanks to the internet, I know we can do something about it. Spread the news.
I am hoping we can use the social media to circulate this news and help bring her back home. We might not be powerful enough to have this on every TV news channel, but I believe we can use the power of the internet to bring Tosin back home. Pls, post this link and let people see her face. Make sure every friend or family member of yours does the same.
If you see her anywhere or have any information, please call 911 and alert the police in your vicinity. If the news media will not do it, we will use the resources that we have to spread the word.
Everyone is praying and fasting for her return but I know we have to take action and broadcast the word; I believe God uses people to answer prayers. I believe she will be found by God’s grace. Let us use the power of the internet to let the world know about her, hopefully find her and bring her back home to her loving family and friends!
…We aren’t world’s most unfaithful —Nigerian women
Nigerian men and women have been reacting to the Durex report that Nigerian women top world’s most unfaithful in marriage. But other Africans are celebrating that their women are faithful. Those from Ghana said they now understand why Nigerian men go for their women while Kenyans say they are proud to be Kenyans now.
But Nigerians are complaining. A Nigerian woman described said the story as depressing but another from Adamawa said said, “This has got to be the biggest joke. With how strict Nigeria is especially where I’m from (Mayo Belwa) Adamawa, Nigeria. Sokoto, Bauchi, Kano, there is no way in heck this is correct factual information. These liars need to stop sampling small population sizes.”
The Kenyan wrote, “Proud to be all Kenyan today. Scandalous! If over 60 percent of the women are on it then I’d be scared of what the percentage for the men is.
A new report by Durex, the condom manufacturing company, said Nigerian women ranked the most unfaithful in the world with a whopping 62% admitting to “playing away”. The report was carried out based on interviews with 29,000 people in 36 countries, the report said.
Malaysians are ranked third in the world for being the most unfaithful partner, reported China Press. The survey said 33 percent of Malaysian men admitted that they were unfaithful to their spouses. Thailand is first at 54 percent while South Korea came in second with 34 percent.
After Malaysia, the countries next on the list were Russia at 32 percent and Hong Kong at 29 percent. Some 39 percent of Malaysian women also confessed to having betrayed their partners. The top two countries are Nigeria at 62 percent and Thailand at 59 percent. Russian women are the fourth most unfaithful at 33 percent while Singaporeans are fifth at 19 percent.
The survey, conducted by condom manufacturer Durex, was based on interviews with 29,000 people in 36 countries. It also revealed that Malaysian men have an average of three s*x partners in their lives while those in Singapore and Hong Kong have 16, which is the highest in Asia.
