A watching area in the town of Damaturu, Nigeria was rocked this evening as an explosion went off amidst fans that were present to view the game.
A suicide bomber allegedly detonated a tricycle taxi loaded with explosives at the viewing locale.
Ugh, if that's what happened, that's just sick.
According to a source, there are already many casualties at General Sani Abacha Specialist Hospital nearby!

We love seeing a little extra skin as much as the next person, but there's definitely a time and a place for it.
This is neither one of those times nor one of those places.
In the past couple of weeks, we've seen tons of celebs and politicians alike get involved in the #BringBackOurGirls movement in response to the 200 school girls who were recently kidnapped in Nigeria.

Let’s keep voicing our support!
Michelle Obama has been working very hard to bring awareness to the situation in Nigeria where over 200 girls were kidnapped and taken from their families.
Over Mother’s Day weekend, MObama wanted to make sure that while people were celebrating their own families, Americans kept in mind that there were lots of mothers out there wondering where their own girls are.
On top of that, Boko Haram has released video footage of around 100 of the kidnapped girls reading the Qur’an and wearing hijabs.

We’ve been following the story of the 276 girls who were kidnapped by a militant group in Nigeria, and no one is doing anything about it!
So, Hilaria Baldwin dedicated her yoga pose of the day to the issue, trying to spread awareness. With her baby Carmen, the yogini kneeled on the city sidewalk, saying:

This is so incredibly awful, we don't even know where to start.
276 Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped from a secondary school in the village of Chibok, northeast Nigeria, and now an Islamist militant group called Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for the mass abductions.

A middle-aged woman in Nigeria has disowned her cat for being gay. Publicly.
She had the cat for SEVEN years but had enough of the feline's "unnatural sexual behavior" because the thinks it's "a contradiction of the laws of nature."
Which is hilarious, because animals are the definition of "nature" and we're pretty sure if anything couldn't choose to be gay (though, nobody does), it would be an animal!
