Sad! BBC newsreader George Alagiah reveals his cancer has returned for the second time?



BBC newsreader, George Alagiah, is to undergo medical treatment for bowel cancer for the second time.
The 62-year-old presenter of the BBC News at Six confirmed the sad news in a statement through his agent, Mary Greenham that the disease had recurred. 
She said Alagiah, a father of two, was in discussions with doctors about options for treatment.
Alagiah spoke of his determination to fight the disease for a second time. “My brilliant doctors are determined to get me back to a disease-free state and I know they have the skill to do just that,” he said.
“I learned last time around how important the support of family and friends is and I am blessed in that department. I genuinely feel positive as I prepare for this new challenge.”
In a tweet this morning, he added: 'Always knew cancer could come back but still tough dealing with disappointment. 
'Harder for my family. I know what I have to do: stay calm, stay content, stay fit and let doctors do their best.'
Sad! BBC newsreader George Alagiah reveals his cancer has returned for the second time?The Sri-Lanka-born presenter was previously diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2014, which later spread to his liver and lymph nodes. In November 2015, he returned to work after being cleared of the disease following extensive treatment.
Alagiah first informed his doctors of a problem in 2014, after a colonoscopy, a tumour was discovered on his bowel.
MRI scans later detected eight tumours in his liver. He had several rounds of chemotherapy and three major operations, one of which included the removal of most of his liver.
In 2016, Alagiah who joined the BBC in 1989 spoke about the chances of the disease recurring. “I get anxious and then there is a huge relief when the doctor tells me it is clear again. But I am under no illusions.
“The doctor warned me last year: ‘Your cancer knows the road, the pathway out of the gut.’ It can happen again,” he told the Telegraph: 
Read facts about Bowel Cancer below.
Bowel cancer is also called colorectal cancer. It affects the large bowel, which is made up of the colon and rectum.
The cells in your body normally divide and grow in a controlled way. When cancer develops, the cells change and can grow in an uncontrolled way.
Most bowel cancers develop from pre-cancerous growths, called polyps. But not all polyps develop into cancer. 
If your doctor finds any polyps, he or she can remove them to prevent them becoming cancerous.
Cancer cells may stay in the bowel or they might spread to other parts of the body, like the liver or lungs. 
Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK, after breast, prostate and lung cancers.
Over 41,200 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year in the UK. Nine in ten cases are over the age of 50.
Bowel cancer is treatable and curable, especially if it's diagnosed early. There is only a small chance that bowel cancer will come back after five years.
Almost 16,000 people die from bowel cancer in the UK every year. It is the second most common cause of cancer death in the UK, behind lung cancer.

Update: Man who beat his wife, allegedly impregnated her sister and aborted the baby, has been arrested




Yesterday, we reported about a 26 year old Rosalyn pictured left, who cried out for help after many years of emotional and physical torture. Rosalyn in her story shared on Facebook user, Mimi Atedze's wall, said her husband had subjected her to many years oemotional and physical battering. She alleged that her husband had impregnated her sister and then carried out an abortion on her. 
Mimi Atedze, who shared the story initially, this evening gave an update. According to her, the husband of the distraught woman has been arrested. Read her update below
UPDATE ON THE SUSPECTED CASE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST MRS ROSALYN AND SUSPECTED RAPE OF HER YOUNGER SISTER (WHO IS A MINOR) BY HER HUSBAND*
*UPDATE: SUSPECTED CASE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND RAPE OF A MINOR*
On receipt of the above complaint from the victim, the NAPTIP Rapid Response Squad reached out to the woman and provided security for her and her two kids. The suspect (husband), Morgans Alepa, M, 37yrs, and a native of Kabba in Kogi State, who left home after the alleged domestic violence was tracked down and is currently in the custody of NAPTIP. The Case which is currently being investigated, will possibly be prosecuted under the Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Act 2015 which is under the purview of NAPTIP.
A cursory look at the VAPP Act 2015, revealed that, Mr Morgans Alepa could face seven count charge bothering on rape, inflicting physical injury on a person, coercion, depriving a person of his or her liberty, forced financial dependence or economic abuse, forced isolation or separation from family and friends, and emotional, verbal and psychological abuse, among others. It's a commendable feat by the DG of NAPTIP, Dame Julie Okah-Donli, Esq, who swiftly supplied all the required resources to the NAPTIP RRS just to ensure that the case is handled to a logical conclusion. NAPTIP is, indeed, on the move now.

President Buhari today appealed to the elders in Benue state to please accomodate herdsmen in their state in the name of God. President Buhari made the appeal when he received elders of the state in the state house, Abuja today January 15th.
Receiving a delegation of political leaders, traditional rulers and elders of the state led by Governor Samuel Ortom at the Presidential Villa, President Buhari said all those involved in the conflict that culminated in loss of lives would not escape justice, including any illegally armed militia in the state. 

The President commiserated with all the victims of the attacks, and the families who lost loved ones and properties, noting that the government would make efforts to ameliorate the situation of all the victims. President Buhari said relevant agencies had been directed to start catering for the humanitarian needs.

You can also be assured that I am just as worried, and concerned with the situation,’’ he said.
The President told the delegation that his administration had already begun a process of finding lasting solution to the perennial challenge of herdsmen conflict with farmers and communities around the country. President Buhari said the Inspector General of Police had been directed to relocate to the state to provide security for lives and properties, urging all Benue indigenes to trust the security agencies and report all suspicious cases of movements in the state.
In his remarks, the Benue State Governor said the tension would be reduced with the Federal Government’s intervention to find a lasting solution to the herdsmen attacks.
“We will leave here to rebuild confidence in our people,’’ he said.
The Tor-Tiv, Prof. James Ortese Iorzua Ayatse, said his entire domain had been thrown into mourning due to the incessant attacks.
“We want you to put an end to the gruesome situation,’’ he added.
Present at the meeting were Benue State Deputy Governor, Benson Abounu, former Senate President, David Mark, former Benue State Governor, Sen. George Akume and Sen. Barnabas Gemade.

Herdsmen demand compensation for members killed during crisis



.

The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has asked that the FG pay compensation to herdsmen affected by all forms of crisis in the country.

The National Secretary of MACBAN, Baba Ngelzarma, made the appeal while briefing newsmen in Abuja on Sunday on the position of the association to the crisis between farmers and herdsmen across the country.

He said that no fewer than 1,000 of its members including women and children have been killed and 20,000 cattle rustled between June 2017 and January 2018 during crises in various states.

Ngelzarma called for the setting up of a Federal Judicial Commission of Inquiry to access the killings in order to unravel the truth and offenders. “We call on the government to pay compensation to victims of all crises to reduce their level of suffering.

If the government accepts that, it is left for them to establish a committee that will go and access the level of damage. We have a document of members that were affected by the pastoralists in the North-East but what we discovered is that none of them were captured in the IDPs programme because they are not sedentary.

Let the government compensate. That will help calm the situation very well,’’ he said. Ngelzarma, who said the association had over 20 million registered members and no fewer than 50 million cattle, regretted that they were the most neglected farmers in the country.

He appealed to the FG to set up a Ministry of Livestock Development to attend to the multidimensional needs of the industry. Ngelzarma said the association welcomed the current resolve by the FG to address the lingering crises, adding that dialogue was the solution to the tackling the menace.
“We submit ourselves for any positive participation to restore mutual and harmonious relationship in the country. We dissociate ourselves from any other group or individual that is out to foment trouble in the country.
We demand for immediate disarmament of all illegally armed militias across the country in the interest of peace, security and stability,’’ he said. Via: NAN
