Harry Uzoka Was Killed By A Jealous Rival Over A Girl, Court Told

Brit-Nigerian model Harry Uzoka was stabbed to death by a less successful rival in a row over a girl which intensified on Instagram, a court has heard.

The renowned male model, 25, died on the pavement outside his home in Shepherd’s Bush, west London, after he was knifed in the heart.

The Old Bailey was told that he called George Koh, 24, “a fake” on Instagram and arranged a fight after finding out he claimed to have had sex with Mr Uzoka’s model girlfriend, Ruby Campbell.

Their relationship deteriorated after a French model, who had previously been in contact with both men on Instagram, arrived in London in late December last year, the jury was told.

The court was told that to her surprise she learnt that Mr Koh “had something of an obsession” with Mr Uzoka, with whom he apparently no longer spoke to because he had sex with his girlfriend.

Koh: jealous, less successful and obsessed

“Koh then added that Uzoka was a bad man and a liar. And so it seemed that admiration for another model and his success had turned to contempt,” the prosecutor said.

The jury was told a “confrontation” was arranged in Ollgar Road in Shepherd’s Bush following a series of phone calls and messages on WhatsApp and Instagram after Annecetta Lafon told Mr Uzoka of Mr Koh’s claims.

Prosecutor Richard Horwell QC said Mr Koh, along with Merse Dikanda and Jonathan Okigbo, both 24, were in possession of at least three knives, including a machete on January 11.

Mr Uzoka and his flatmate, Adrian Harper, were armed with dumbbell bars, but they fled when they were confronted with knives.

Mr Harper got away, but Mr Uzoka collapsed on the pavement outside his home after being stabbed in the heart.

“It is not difficult to work out which side won. Uzoka and Harper were outnumbered and bars stand little chance against knives,” he said.

9 Great Benefits Of The Humble Grapes You Didn’t Know Of

Have you ever wondered why grapes used to be the top choice of gifts to take with you when visiting a sick friend or relative in hospital?

It is not only because tgey are easy to pluck, pick up and pop in the mouth or their natural juicy sweetness.

If you like me, you are a die-hard grape lover, then you will be glad to learn that you have very filling you body with huge health benefits and might more even realise it.

The greatness of grapes is real!

Here are the top benefits of eating — and drinking — ’em daily. (Yes, really!)

1. They can help with weight management.

Among many nutrients found in grapes, these vine-growing goodies contain compounds with antioxidant properties called flavonoids. A study linked diets high in flavonoids with weight maintenance. Plus, one cup of grapes has about 100 calories, making them great for a high-volume, nutrient-dense snack of which you can eat more for a lower calorie cost.

2. They’re an anti-inflammatory food.

Like other plant-based foods, the antioxidants in grapes may reduce cellular damage by protecting cell membranes. Eating about 1 to 2 cups of grapes per day can help shield your tissues by limiting the chemical reactions that trigger inflammation in your body.

3. They’re a heart-healthy snack.

When it comes to cardiovascular health, grapes are overachievers. Some compounds in grapes can help regulate blood pressure, reduce inflammation from oxidative stress, improve blood flow, and protect your vascular system.

4. Your brain may benefit from grapes.

Grape polyphenols may boost cognition and protect your noggin by maintaining vascular health and function. They may also play a role in signaling neurotransmitters and reducing your risk of harmful oxidation, both linked to a lower risk of cognitive decline as a part of a plant-based diet.

5. They may help protect your skin.

Specific phytonutrients found in colorful fruits and veggies like grapes may shield skin cells from the effects of ultraviolet light radiation, according to some small studies.

6. They can lower your risk of diabetes.

Resveratrol, one of immune-boosting antioxidants found in grapes, is specifically linked to improving blood sugar regulationby affecting carbohydrate metabolism. That said, grape-flavored products can contain lots of added sugar, which has the reverse effect! Make sure you’re eating grapes in their least-processed form (fresh or freeze-dried grapes or wine!) to reap the benefits.

7. They count toward hydration.

Little known fact: Grapes are 82% water. Proper hydration is directly linked to skin appearance, cell regeneration, and overall health. You get H2O from more than just beverages, though. High-water foods like — you guessed it — grapes can help your skin stay hydrated too.

8. Eating more of them can reduce risk of some cancers.

The benefits of veggies and fruit make them no-brainers when it comes to choosing meals and snacks. High-antioxidant foods like grapes are linked to a lower risk of some cancers by protecting cellular DNA, reducing oxidative stress, and limiting reactions that initiate tumor growth and development.

9. Drinking grapes has benefits too!

As if you needed another reason to pop a bottle: The phenolic compounds in grapes are still present after they’ve undergone the fermentation process, a.k.a. when they become vino. A whole host of research links regular wine consumption (in moderation, of course!) to a reduced risk of chronic disease and improved health overall. We’ll drink to that!

Woman Allowed Husband To Rape 10 Year Old Daughter For 6 Years To “Get It Out Of His System”

A woman has revealed that her mother allowed her father to rape her over a six-year period when she was a child.

She said that her mum left her bedroom so that he could carry out the horrific abuse in the late 70s and early 80s from the ages of 10 to 16.

Prosecutors told Townsville District Court in Queensland, Australia, that the mother swapped beds with her daughter so that he could ‘get it out of his system’, according to the local publication Townsville Bulletin.

Prosecutor Andrew Walklate told the court: ‘For about a week when the complainant was about 15 years old the [mother] swapped bedrooms with the complainant… that was in order to facilitate the sexual activity taking place.

‘She was to vacate the bedroom every night for a week in order for the complainant to enter the bedroom and enable him to do what he wanted to do.’

He added that they even had to pass in the hallway of their home as she walked to the bedroom to be raped.

The court heard that the mother knew what was going on for a long time and that a GP told her to ignore the situation.

However, the daughter said that her mother’s failure to do anything to stop the abuse was just as hurtful as her father’s actions.

It was only when the mother told her own parents what had been going on that the abuse eventually stopped when the girl’s grandfather intervened.

The mother admitted incest and allowing the abuse of a child under the age of 16.

She has been jailed for two years to be suspended after four months.

Donald Trump Snubbed By The Royals. Phillip, Charles And William Did Not Want To Meet Him

The Queen had to met Donald Trump alone after Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly refused to meet the US president.

During the planning of the visit, the Royals made it clear they did want to be involved in Trump’s trip to Windsor Castle, it has been reported.

Prince Philip, who retired from public engagements last year but still attends events that interest him, is also said to have been unwilling to meet the president.

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly did not want to meet Donald Trump

A royal source told the Sunday Times: ‘This business of Prince Charles and William not being there for the Trump visit was a snub.

‘They simply refused to attend. It is very very unusual for the Queen to be there on on her own. Usually she is accompanied by somebody.

‘Prince Charles has been substituting for Prince Philip recently.’

Mr Trump caused controversy as he turned up late to meet the Queen, walked in front of her during an inspection of troops and let slip that they talked about Brexit.

A Whitehall official who also helped plan the visit said: ‘The Queen will do her duty, but among the wider family, they were not as enthusiastic as they were when Obama came.’

When Barack and Michelle Obama visited the UK in 2016 they had lunch with the Queen and Prince Phillip at Windsor Castle and a private dinner with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry at Kensington Palace.

If Mr Trump’s visit had been an official state visit, he would have been expected to see more of the Royal family.
