US surgeons transplant pig’s heart into human, break world record

United States surgeons have broken a world record as they transplanted the heart of a pig into a dying patient for the very first time in the world.

The operation, which took about nine hours to complete, was conducted on a 57-year-old man, David Bennett, at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore on Saturday.

The surgeons transplanted a genetically-modified pig’s heart into the patient’s body, Daily Mail reported on Monday.

Surgeons subjected the pig’s heart to gene-editing, in order to remove sugar in its cells that may cause the human body to reject it.

Bennett was suffering from terminal heart failure and was too sick to qualify for a human transplant. Though he knew that there was no guarantee the operation would work, the labourer had said that he would “either die or do this transplant”.

He added, “I want to live. I know it’s a shot in the dark, but it’s my last choice.”

After the operation, Bennet was able to breathe on his own though he was connected to a heart-lung machine that helped his new heart pump blood around his body.

According to experts, it would take a few weeks to determine if his body would fully accept the organ when the machine would be taken off.

Experts say it is too soon to know if his body will fully accept the organ and the next few weeks will be critical as he is weaned off the machine.

However, if it proved successful, this would mark a medical breakthrough that could save thousands of lives.

The Police in Ogun have arrested Timothy Oluwatimilehin, the pastor of Spirit Filled International Christian Church, Olumore, Abeokuta for turning a housewife and her two daughters into sex slaves.

Oluwatimilehin had lured the housewife along with her two daughters away from her husband’s home. He kept all in his house.

He regularly had sex with them, Ogun Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi said in a statement.

The Pastor took advantage of the misunderstanding between the woman and her husband to carry out his sexual acts.

Oluwatimilehin was arrested following a complaint lodged at Adatan Police Division by the husband of the victim.

According to the police spokesperson, the husband, accompanied by an official of the Ministry of Women Affairs, had told the police that his wife and two daughters were lured by the pastor of their church, who took them into his custody.

He had since been having sex with both the mother and her daughters.

“Upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Adatan Division, Abiodun Salau, detailed his detectives to effect the arrest of the randy clergyman.

“On interrogation, the pastor confessed to the commission of the crime but pleaded for forgiveness.

“In his confession, he explained that he took advantage of little misunderstanding between the woman and her husband to carry out the devilish act.”

The PPRO said the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has directed the anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department to take over the case.

He also ordered diligent investigation, with a view to charge the suspect to court as soon as possible.

Regina Daniels has issued a statement addressing her dealings with Jaruma; detailing what went wrong between them.

Regina Daniels also explained that she and Jaruma had an agreement for her to advertise her products; which she did, but Jaruma then wanted her to go beyond their agreement; by posting things which were “deceitful” on her page.

Regina said she disagreed and when there was a “major crisis” going on in her family; Jaruma took advantage of that to promote her products; at the expense of the Nwoko family.

Regina is thought to be making reference to Jaruma’s post; insinuating that Ned Nwoko’s marriage to his Moroccan wife ended because of the kayanmata (sex-enhancing product) Regina allegedly used on Ned.

Regina also shared chats where she blasted Jaruma for claiming her use of kayanmata on Ned caused the problem between him and his Moroccan wife.

Regina reiterated that she has never used any of Jaruma’s sex products.

Bright Joseph, a 24-year-old suspected online scammer has been arrested by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Osun State Command.

Disclosing this via a statement made available to DAILY POST on Thursday in Osogbo, the spokesperson, Adigun Daniel, revealed that the suspect was arrested at his residence, Zone 6, Apete Area, Owode-Ede, on Wednesday, January 26, 2022.

Adigun, who disclosed that Johnson, a National Diploma (ND) certificate holder from Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, stated that the suspect had fraudulently advertised on his Instagram handle the sales of eggs in a non-existent farm called Choice Farm he was operating which is located in Ogbogbo, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State.

The Osun NSCDC spokesperson explained that he had successfully scammed a 37-year-old Halima Ashifa, a resident of Sango Ota, Ogun State, before luck ran out for him.

According to Adigun, “Halima Ashifa signified interest in the supply of eggs and established contact with the suspect.

“She eventually made a cash transfer of a total sum of fifty-five thousand Naira (N55,000) in two instalments of seven thousand and five hundred naira (N7500) and forty-seven thousand and five hundred naira (N47,500) only for the eggs on January 21 and 25, 2022, respectively.

“The money was deposited in a GTBank account, which the suspect claimed was the account belonging to his company secretary. Whereas, the account number actually belongs to a Point Of Sales (POS) operator at Owode-Ede.”

While disclosing that the crime committed by the suspect was tantamount to obtaining money under false pretence, Adigun stated that he had violated Section 1(1) A(C) of the Advanced Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act, 2006.

He explained that he contravened the act because he fraudulently obtained money from his victim knowing that he had no eggs for sale and he did not own any poultry farm.

The command spokesperson, however, stated that the suspect would be charged to court in due course because he has volunteered confessional statements to confirm his culpability.
