MEN ONLY: 7 Lies Wives Tell Their Husbands

Your Internet history isn't the only dirty little secret in your relationship. In a study from Texas A&M University, people admitted to misleading their partner a third of the time. When they got hitched, that number dropped to 1 in 10--but still, that means the woman you exchanged vows with could be deceiving you on a near-daily basis. "Women weigh the pros and cons of honesty versus lying," says Susan Shapiro Barash, author of Little White Lies, Deep Dark Secrets: The Truth About Why Women Lie. "Often they find that white lies serve them more than the truth."
A wife's dishonesty may come from a place of compassion, or may just be an attempt to please or placate you. But, the truth is, no one wants to share a bed with Pinocchio. So when should your B.S. detector sound? Listen for these seven common catchphrases--and prepare to call her bluff.

1. "This dress was on sale."
It wasn't. In your wife's mind, saving money ("It was half off!") negates spending it--and therefore reduces the odds that you'll blow up at her about blowing the budget. "This is often taught by the mother: Always downplay. Never reveal how much something really cost," says Barash. And her need to protect her image may overpower her desire for honesty. "We think a man will judge us for our spending habits, and that he'll think we're silly or frivolous," says DeAnne Lorraine, a Los Angeles-based dating coach. "We don't want him to think we're a liability."

2. "You have the biggest penis I've ever seen."
You don't. This is what psychologists call an "altruistic lie"--an untruthful compliment designed to shield you from embarrassment. "Most women have one ex-boyfriend that was enormous," says Lorraine. "But among the rest, there were only miniscule differences. So why not tell this guy he's the biggest?" Read: Unless you're packing some serious sausage, you probably aren't top dog. But you're so similar to the others that she can convince herself you've got a quarter inch more to offer. "It's not like it really matters to us, but it matters to men," says Lorraine. "So we'll stroke their egos."

Woman Lynched Over Attempt To Kidnap 3 Kids

A suspected female kidnapper was Tuesday set ablaze by a mob on Ekoro Road at Abule Egba area of Lagos, southwest Nigeria.
 
The incident which occurred around 7:00a.m. led to traffic gridlock on Ekoro Road as motorists had harrowing experience navigating through the crowd that thronged the scene of the incident.
Eyewitnesses said the woman allegedly kidnapped three children who were on their way to school in the area, but that a bread seller raised the alarm as the suspect tried to escape from the scene.
The unknown woman was said to have been beaten to a pulp before youths in the area hung a tyre on her neck, poured petrol on her and set her ablaze.
 At the time P.M.NEWS got to the scene, the woman  had burnt completely.
Policemen from the Oke-Odo Police Station watched helplessly as the woman had already been burnt before they got to the scene.

WHAT THE FIRST LADY PATIENCE JONATHAN SAID

“After the incident, I waited for her (Borno State First Lady), she did not come. I sent for her, she came. I asked questions, no answer. I asked her to come with the principal and parents; she did not turn up till today. To our greatest surprise, she sent a commissioner. The next thing I saw was women demonstrating. “No woman will fold her hands while her house is on fire. She is the mother of Borno. She is the mother of these children, I am their grandmother. She should be more concerned and come to her grandma. The police, army, WAEC, government officials came with a few of their own but no parent was present to tell us their child was kidnapped or among those who escaped. The mother of Borno is not concerned about what is happening, her children are (not) involved".

Boko Haram returns to Borno highways

Boko Haram insurgents believed to have fled their hideouts following military raids on their camps in Borno State, have renewed attacks on motorists and commuters along major highways, travellers said.
One of the witnesses said the insurgents intercepted a truck carrying food items along Maiduguri-Damaturu highway, as the driver of the vehicle fled when he sighted them.
“Our vehicle almost ran into Boko Haram near Benisheik, but for the alert from a car in front. The driver of the private car had suddenly put his car in reverse and then made a quick U-turn back to Damaturu axis of the road, signaling to our driver to turn back too,” he said.
