A native of Amaigbo in Nwangele Local Government Area of Imo State has hung himself after he was caught having canal knowledge of his daughter.

A source revealed that the man had been forcing his 17-year-old daughter to sleep with him for a very long time before he was caught, Tribune reports.

According to the source, the villagers who had been suspicious of his incestuous act with his daughter had earlier approached him but he denied it.

Again some of his kinsmen who were not satisfied with the reasons he gave to them decided to keep their eyes on the father and daughter until unfortunately both of them were caught in the act.

The source said that angry youths around were able to apprehend the father even as he attempted to jump out from the window of his building.

He was later dragged to the palace of the traditional ruler of the area where he was said to have confessed to the crime.

To appease the gods of the land he was forced to perform some traditional rights. He, however, hanged himself out of shame on a tree in a nearby bush

The man was said to have told his daughter to forgive him but also told her that he could not live to bear the stigma of his act.

His daughter on interrogation claimed her father had been threatening to kill her if she exposed their secret affair to the public.

The source said: “She told us that her father has been sleeping with her since she was 16 years, he even threatened to kill her if she reveals their affair to the mother who is a trader.”

According to the source, whenever her mother took her goods to the market, she did not know what was going on between them.

An Oregon woman’s black and tan coonhound earned a Guinness World Record when each of her ears was measured at 12.38 inches long.

Guinness said Lou, a 3-year-old canine belonging to Paige Olsen, officially has the longest ears on a dog (living).

Olsen said she always knew Lou’s ears were “extravagantly long,” but she only decided to measure them while sheltering in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“All black and tan coonhounds have beautiful long ears, some are just longer than others,” Olsen, a veterinary technician, told Guinness.

Olsen said Lou’s especially long ears have not led to any medical complications for the canine.

“Of course everyone wants to touch the ears, they’re very easy to fall in love with with just one sighting,” she said.

Olsen said Lou is also a competitor at dog shows and has earned titles from the American Kennel Club and Rally Obedience.

Tanks head for Kosovo-Serb border as Balkans tensions grow

A Kosovo security unit trooper guards the border with Serbia as the Balkan nations trade accusations.

Kosovo’s Prime Minister Albin Kurti has accused neighbouring Serbia of “provoking a serious international conflict”, with tensions between the two countries at their highest for years.

In the latest flashpoint, two interior ministry offices in northern Kosovo were on Saturday attacked near border crossings blocked by local Serbs angered by a ban on cars with Serbian licence plates entering the country.

The car registration office in the town of Zubin Potok was set ablaze, and two hand grenades were thrown at the civil registration office in the nearby town of Zvecan, though they did not go off, police said.

There was no mention of any casualties.

Serbs from Kosovo’s north have blocked two main roads near the border since the government ban went into force on Monday.

Drivers from Serbia must now use temporary printed registration details that are valid for 60 days.

The Kosovo government says its move mirrors measures in force in Serbia against drivers from Kosovo since 2008, when Kosovo declared independence from their neighbour.

Serb fighter planes flew close to the border crossing of Jarinje where protesters cheered them. A day before, three helicopters also flew in the vicinity.

Media in Belgrade reported that tanks and other military equipment were heading towards the border, but the Serb army did not give any details.

NATO’s mission in Kosovo, where peacekeepers maintain a fragile peace, called for restraint.
