Happenng: Nigeria Army shot dead five bandits in a fresh clash in Kaduna state.

The Nigeria military have foiled an attack by bandit/terrorist and killed five terrorists in Kwanan Bataro, Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

During the military clearance patrols in the area received credible intelligence of terrorists’ movement towards Fatika town.

Oneworldnews learnt that the bandits were sighted and attempted to escape the advancing forces but were shot at.

This was contained in a statement issued by Kaduna State’s commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, on Monday.

According to him, the troops cut off the bandits’ escape route at Kwanan Bataro, and engaged them in a firefight, during which five of the terrorists were neutralized.

He said the troops returned to base after clearing the area.

According to him, Governor Nasir El-Rufa’i expressed satisfaction at the operational feedback and commended the troops for their proactive and sharp response to the intelligence received.

He encouraged them to keep up the intensity in the ongoing offensives against terrorists in the area.

Vertigo is a type of dizziness that can last just for a short period of time (minutes) or that can last for hours or even days.

Definition

Vertigo is a type of dizziness that can last just for a short period of time (minutes) or that can last for hours or even days. People who have vertigo have a false feeling of their surroundings moving or spinning.

This is usually accompanied by a feeling of sickness (nausea) and a loss of balance. The condition can also cause someone with the condition to be sick (vomit). Vertigo is a symptom and not a condition in itself. In most cases, there is a medical condition that causes vertigo. However, sometimes the cause is unknown.

Types of Vertigo

The two main types of vertigo are:

Peripheral Vertigo

It is caused by a problem in areas of the inner ear or the vestibular nerve, which connects the inner ear and the brain. This is the most common type of vertigo.

Central Vertigo

It happens when there’s a glitch in the brain, particularly in an area of the brain called the cerebellum.

RSV-HSN: A New Type of Vertigo

Researchers recently discovered a new kind of vertigo. Scientists called it “recurrent spontaneous vertigo with head-shaking nystagmus” (RSV-HSN).

To diagnose this condition, participants sat in a dark room while an examiner moved their heads forward and then side-to-side for about 15 seconds. Next, researchers video-recorded the participants’ eye motions. Results showed those with RSV-HSN had eye movements, known as “nystagmus,” that lasted longer than it does in others with vertigo.

The scientists say that, compared to other types of vertigo, RSV-HSN involves more severe bouts of motion sickness. In the study, people with RSV-HSN had attacks that included nausea, vomiting, headaches, and intolerance of head motions. They experienced symptoms anywhere from a few times a week to once a year. At this point, the cause of RSV-HSN isn’t known, but the condition does seem to respond well to medication.

Pathophysiology

  • The neurochemistry of vertigo includes six primary neurotransmitters that have been identified between the three-neuron arc that drives the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR). Glutamate maintains the resting discharge of the central vestibular neurons and may modulate synaptic transmission in all three neurons of the VOR arc.
  • Acetylcholine appears to function as an excitatory neurotransmitter in both the peripheral and central synapses. Gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is thought to be inhibitory for the commissures of the medial vestibular nucleus, the connections between the cerebellar Purkinje cells, and the lateral vestibular nucleus, and the vertical VOR.
  • Three other neurotransmitters work centrally. Dopamine may accelerate vestibular compensation. Norepinephrine modulates the intensity of central reactions to vestibular stimulation and facilitates compensation. Histamine is present only centrally, but its role is unclear.
  • Dopamine, histamine, serotonin, and acetylcholine are neurotransmitters thought to produce vomiting. It is known that centrally acting antihistamines modulate the symptoms of acute symptomatic vertigo.

Vertigo risk factors

Factors that increase your risk of VAD include:

  • Cardiovascular diseases, especially in older adults
  • Recent ear infection, which causes an imbalance in the inner ear
  • History of head trauma
  • Medications, such as antidepressants and antipsychotics

Causes of Vertigo

Vertigo is often the result of an inner ear problem.

  • The most common cause is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). BPPV occurs when tiny calcium particles clump together in the part of the inner ear that helps control our balance, affecting the messages sent from your inner ear to your brain.
  • Other inner ear problems that can cause vertigo are Meniere’s disease, where there is associated tinnitus and hearing loss, and 2 conditions that involved swelling or infection of the inner ear, vestibular neuronitis and labyrinthitis.
  • Other causes of vertigo include head injuries, circulation problems, and infections.
  • Rarely, vertigo is caused by serious problems such as a brain tumor or a stroke.

Symptoms

  • If you have vertigo, you may feel as though you are spinning, falling or tumbling in space, or standing still while your surroundings are moving.
  • It often begins suddenly and may vary in intensity. It may be constant or it may come and go.
  • Vertigo or giddiness is often mistaken for light-headedness or dizziness. Light-headedness is a feeling that you are going to lose consciousness or faint (pass out). This feeling isn’t caused by an inner ear problem but is due to a lack of oxygen flowing to the brain.
  • If you have vertigo it’s normal to feel out of control and frightened – but in most cases, the causes of vertigo aren’t a serious health threat.

You may also have these symptoms:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Tinnitus or ringing in your ears
  • Decreased hearing
  • Ear pain

Complications of Vertigo

Complications can be due to serious diseases, failure to seek treatment can result in serious complications and permanent damage. Once the underlying cause is diagnosed, it is important for you to follow the treatment plan that you and your health care professional design specifically for you to reduce the risk of potential complications including:

  • Adverse effects of treatment
  • Anxiety
  • Brain damage
  • Depression
  • Difficulty performing daily tasks
  • Diminished overall quality of life
  • Impaired balance and coordination
  • Nerve problems that cause pain, numbness or tingling
  • Paralysis
  • Permanent hearing loss
  • Permanent loss of sensation
  • Spread of cancer
  • Spread of infection
  • Traumatic injuries from falls
  • Unconsciousness and coma

Diagnosis and test

To assess what’s causing your vertigo, doctors will give you a number of subtests that examine the effectiveness and interaction of the vestibular system, or inner ear, the somatosensory system, or flex and pressure sensors in your feet, and the vision system — as well as how these systems contribute to your overall stability and balance. The assessment helps determine which system or systems may be contributing to your symptoms and gives direction for treatment.

The assessment includes a videonystagmography (VNG) or electronystagmography (ENG) test. The VNG or ENG evaluation is separated into three subtests.

Oculomotor

This assesses the oculomotor system, the visual system for balance. In this part of the test, we measure voluntary eye movements by having you complete a series of exercises while visually following a dot on a light bar.

Positional or Positioning

This part of the test focuses on the vestibular system, which is the balanced structure of the inner ear. We will ask you to move your head, or head and body, to monitor how the vestibular system reacts to these movements and to changes in gravity.

Calorics

This measurement determines how well the vestibular system responds by applying warm and cool air into each ear canal separately. Comparisons are then made of the vestibular system’s performance from one side to the other, and whether there’s a possible weakness or hyperresponse in the inner ear. During the caloric test, it isn’t unusual to experience a sensation of movement, which goes away immediately when the test is complete.

Treatment

You may experience dizziness and moderate to severe false spinning sensations that can cause loss of balance, disorientation (which may cause falls), vomiting, sweating and severe nausea. It’s important to identify the cause of your vertigo symptoms to be certain it’s not a symptom of a more serious underlying disorder in the ear or nervous system, as well as to determine the best course of treatment.

It varies depending on the underlying cause of vertigo. Some cases of vertigo will resolve on their own since the brain is able to adapt to changes in the inner ear. However, for moderate to severe vertigo there are three common treatments:

Physical therapy/repositioning maneuvers: Some physical therapists are trained in vestibular rehabilitation, which helps strengthen the vestibular system to improve vertigo. They can also teach you ways to move around safely despite vertigo.  There are also head movements helpful to those with BPPV, which helps clear calcium the ear canal.

Medication: A doctor may switch your current medications if they are the cause of vertigo. Medications to help vertigo, will either treat the underlying cause of vertigo or help suppress the symptoms of vertigo caused by a recurring condition. For causes like Meniere’s disease, vestibular suppressants are used. These medications may include benzodiazepines, which work by suppressing the nervous system. It associated with migraines is often treated with benzodiazepines, antiemetics and antihistamines. It can be prevented with either antidepressants or calcium channel antagonists, which prevent constriction in the arteries.

Surgery: Rare causes of vertigo, such as those caused by tumor or brainstem injury, may require surgery.

Other types of treatment

Your doctor will recommend an individualized treatment plan, which may include:

  • Medications, including muscle relaxants or anti-anxiety drugs
  • Balance retraining, utilizing both static and dynamic balance exercises
  • Sensory organization training
  • Gaze stabilization exercises
  • Habituation exercises
  • Compensatory strategies (behavioral strategies to achieve rehabilitation goals)
  • Aerobic conditioning
  • Canalith repositioning treatment (CRT), also known as the Epley maneuver (used to treat the most common type of vertigo, called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, which is caused by calcium carbonate crystals (ear rocks) falling or being dislodged in the inner ear)

Medications to treat vertigo

There are a variety of drugs that may be prescribed to treat vertigo. These medications include:

Antihistamines, such as Antivert (meclizine) or Phenergan (promethazine), may be prescribed to treat nausea and vomiting associated with vertigo. These decrease the feelings of motion sickness associated with vertigo. Antihistamines can sometimes cause drowsiness.

Benzodiazepines, such as Valium (diazepam) or Ativan (lorazepam), often relieve vertigo caused by inner ear disorders such as Meniere’s disease, labyrinthitis, migraine-associated vertigo, or vestibular neuronitis. These drugs relieve vertigo by suppressing the vestibular system. These drugs are typically given in small doses to avoid addiction to the medication. These drugs also have a side effect of drowsiness.

Diuretics, or water pills—such as Dyazide (triamterene/HCTZ), Lasix (furosemide), or acetazolamide—are often prescribed to those with Meniere’s disease. Diuretics help remove inner ear fluid that can cause vertigo. Side effects of diuretics can include dehydration and frequent urination.

Corticosteroids, such as Decadron (dexamethasone) or oral prednisone, have been found to decrease the length and frequency of vertigo in those with Meniere’s disease. These drugs should be used for a short time; otherwise, you can become steroid-dependent and develop adrenal insufficiency.

Prevention

It can affect your balance and may make you feel unsteady, you are at risk of falls or accidents. To reduce your risk of a fall or accident:

  • Get out of a bed or chair slowly
  • Wear low-heeled shoes that fit properly
  • Use handrails on stairs
  • Install grab bars in the bathroom. Don’t use towel racks for balance
  • Use a shower stool. Also, apply adhesive strips to the shower or tub floor
  • Use a walking aid if needed
  • If you become dizzy or disoriented while driving, you could hurt yourself and others. It is best to avoid driving until symptoms subside
  • At work, let your employer know about your symptoms, especially if your job involves operating machinery or climbing ladders

Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer that develops when white blood cells called lymphocytes grow out of control.

What is lymphoma?

Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer that develops when white blood cells called lymphocytes grow out of control. Lymphocytes are part of your immune system. They travel around your body in your lymphatic system, helping you fight infections. Your lymphatic system runs throughout your body, similar to your blood circulatory system, carrying a fluid called lymph. The fluid passes through lymph nodes (glands), which are spread throughout your body.

If you have lymphoma, your lymphocytes divide in an abnormal way or do not die when they should. The abnormal lymphocytes build-up, usually in lymph nodes in your armpits, neck, or groin. However, they can collect in almost any part of your body.

Stages of lymphoma

Both NHL and HL can be classified into four stages. The state of lymphoma is determined by where the cancer is and how far it has or has not spread.

  • Stage 1. Cancer is in one lymph node or one organ cite.
  • Stage 2. Cancer is in two lymph nodes near to one another and on the same side of the body, or the cancer is in one organ and nearby lymph nodes.
  • Stage 3. At this point, cancer is in lymph nodes on both sides of the body and in multiple lymph nodes.
  • Stage 4. Cancer can be in an organ and spread beyond nearby lymph nodes. As NHL progresses, it may begin to spread. The most common sites for advanced NHL include the liver, bone marrow, and lungs.

Types of lymphoma

Lymphoma is basically divided into two categories.

  1. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  2. Hodgkin Lymphoma

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL)

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is the most common form of blood cancer or liquid cancer. The disease forms in the bloodstream or lymph system, a network of vessels, nodes, and organs that carry immune cells throughout the body.

Hodgkin Lymphoma

Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is a type of lymphoma in which cancer originates from a specific type of white blood cells called lymphocytes. Symptoms may include fever, night sweats, and weight loss. Often there will be non-painful enlarged lymph nodes in the neck, under the arm, or in the groin.

Pathophysiology

As with many malignancies, and particularly malignancies in children, the pathophysiology of lymphoma is not well understood. Development is multi-factorial, with infection, genetic factors, and environmental exposures all potentially involved. In adults, lifestyle factors such as obesity, smoking, and alcohol intake are all associated with increased lymphoma risk but it is less clear what, if any, part they play in the development of childhood disease.

Causes and risk factors

Lymphoma can develop when lymphocytes (white blood cells that fight infection) grow out of control. This is caused by genetic changes in the cells that mean they no longer ‘listen’ to signals that control their growth and death. Researchers are finding out more about the genetic changes in lymphoma, and this is leading to new treatments. In most cases, it is not known what actually causes these changes. Most genetic changes probably happen by chance. Several genetic changes are usually needed before lymphoma develops. This is known as the ‘multi-hit theory’.

You might be more at risk if you:

  • Are in your 60s or older for NHL
  • Are between 15 and 40 or older than 55 for HL
  • Are male, although certain subtypes may be more common in females
  • Have a weak immune system from HIV/AIDS, an organ transplant, or because you were born with an immune disease
  • Have an immune system disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren’s syndrome, lupus, or celiac disease
  • Have been infected with a virus such as Epstein-Barr, hepatitis C, or human T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (HTLV-1)
  • Have a close relative who had lymphoma
  • Were exposed to benzene or chemicals that kill bugs and weeds
  • Were treated for Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the past
  • Were treated for cancer with radiation

What are the symptoms and signs?

Lymphoma may not always cause symptoms in its early stages. Instead, a doctor may discover enlarged lymph nodes during a physical examination. These may feel like small, soft nodules under the skin. A person may feel the lymph nodes in the:

  • Neck
  • Upper chest
  • Armpit
  • Stomach
  • Groin

Likewise, many of the symptoms of early lymphoma are not specific. That makes them easy to overlook. These common early symptoms include:

  • Bone pain
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Enlarged spleen
  • Fever
  • Night sweats
  • Pain when drinking alcohol
  • Itchy rash
  • Rash in skin folds
  • Shortness of breath
  • Skin itching
  • Stomach pain
  • Unexplained weight loss

Because the symptoms are often easily overlooked, it can be difficult to detect and then diagnose it in an early stage. It’s important to know how the symptoms may begin to change as cancer worsens.

Complications of non-Hodgkin lymphoma

Being immunocompromised (having a weakened immune system) is a common complication of lymphoma treatment. Even if your lymphatic system is restored to normal, many of the medications that treat NHL weaken your immune system.

This means you are more vulnerable to infections, and there is an increased risk of developing serious complications from infections. You may be advised to take regular doses of antibiotics to prevent infections occurring in the early stages after treatment. Your immune system will usually recover in the months and years after treatment.

Complications of Hodgkin Lymphoma

Some of the main complications of Hodgkin lymphoma are described below.

Weakened immune system: Having a weakened immune system is a common complication of Hodgkin lymphoma and it can become more severe while you’re being treated.

Infertility: Chemotherapy and radiotherapy for Hodgkin lymphoma can cause infertility. This is sometimes temporary, but it can be permanent.

Second cancers: People who have had Hodgkin lymphoma are more likely to get lymphoma, leukemia, or other cancers in the future. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy further increase this risk. “Second cancers”, such as breast cancer or lung cancer, usually develop more than 10 years after you’re treated for Hodgkin lymphoma.

Diagnosis

Tests and procedures used to diagnose lymphoma include:

Physical exam. Your doctor checks for swollen lymph nodes, including in your neck, underarm, and groin, as well as a swollen spleen or liver.

Removing a lymph node for testing. Your doctor may recommend a lymph node biopsy procedure to remove all or part of a lymph node for laboratory testing. Advanced tests can determine if lymphoma cells are present and what types of cells are involved.

Blood tests. Blood tests to count the number of cells in a sample of your blood can give your doctor clues about your diagnosis.

Removing a sample of bone marrow for testing. A bone marrow aspiration and biopsy procedure involve inserting a needle into your hipbone to remove a sample of bone marrow. The sample is analyzed to look for lymphoma cells.

Imaging tests. Your doctor may recommend imaging tests to look for signs of lymphoma in other areas of your body. Tests may include CT, MRI, and positron emission tomography (PET).

Other tests and procedures may be used depending on your situation.

Many types of lymphoma exist and knowing exactly which type you have is key to developing an effective treatment plan. Research shows that having a biopsy sample reviewed by an expert pathologist improves the chances for an accurate diagnosis. Consider getting a second opinion from a specialist who can confirm your diagnosis.

Treatment

The course of treatment depends on the type of lymphoma a person has and the stage it has reached.

Indolent, or slow-growing lymphoma may not need treatment. Watchful waiting may be enough to make sure cancer does not spread. If treatment is necessary, it may involve the following:

Biologic therapy: This is a drug treatment that stimulates the immune system to attack cancer. The drug achieves this by introducing living microorganisms into the body.

Antibody therapy: A medical professional inserts synthetic antibodies into the bloodstream. These respond to cancer’s toxins.

Chemotherapy: A healthcare team administers aggressive drug treatment to target and kill cancer cells.

Radioimmunotherapy: This delivers high powered radioactive doses directly into cancerous B cells and T-cells to destroy them.

Radiation therapy: A doctor may recommend this type of therapy to target and destroy small areas of cancer. Radiation therapy uses concentrated doses of radiation to kill cancerous cells.

Stem cell transplantation: This can help restore damaged bone marrow following high dose chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

Steroids: A doctor may inject steroids to treat lymphoma.

Surgery: A surgeon may remove the spleen or other organs after the lymphoma has spread. However, a cancer specialist, or oncologist, will more commonly request surgery to obtain a biopsy.

Prevention

Many of the risk factors are outside a person’s direct control. The following factors, however, can be controlled:

  • Avoiding behaviors that increase the chance of getting AIDS and hepatitis C infections, both of which weaken the immune system.
  • Avoiding unnecessary exposure to radiation.
  • Maintaining a normal weight and eating a healthy diet.
  • Rarely, some women develop lymphoma in the scar tissue around breast implants. The decision to get breast implants should be well-thought-out.

Rectal prolapse is when part of your rectum sticks out through your anus (back passage) to form a lump.

Definition

Rectal prolapse is when part of your rectum sticks out through your anus (back passage) to form a lump. The rectum is the last part of your bowel. You may notice the rectal prolapse when you’re having a bowel movement. But it can also happen when you cough or sneeze, or even when you’re doing everyday activities, such as walking or standing up. Having a rectal prolapse can be uncomfortable and it may affect your daily life. You may feel embarrassed about it, but it’s important to see your GP if you think you may have a rectal prolapse.

Epidemiology

The annual incidence of rectal prolapse in Finland was found to be 2.5 per 100,000 population.

Age-related demographics

Although all ages can be affected, peak incidences are observed in the fourth and seventh decades of life. Pediatric patients usually are affected when younger than 3 years, with peak incidence in the first year of life. Mucosal prolapse is more common than complete prolapse (possibly because of poor fixation of the submucosa to the mucosa in pediatric patients). The incidence of the prolapsed rectum in children with cystic fibrosis approaches 20%.

Types of Rectal prolapse

There are three types of rectal prolapse.

Partial prolapse (also called mucosal prolapse): The lining (mucous membrane) of the rectum slides out of place and usually sticks out of the anus. This can happen when you strain to have a bowel movement. Partial prolapse is most common in children younger than 2 years.

Internal prolapse (intussusception): One part of the wall of the large intestine (colon) or rectum may slide into or over another part, like the folding parts of a toy telescope. The rectum does not stick out of the anus. (See a picture of intussusception.) Intussusception is most common in children and rarely affects adults. In children, the cause is usually not known. In adults, it is usually related to another intestinal problem, such as a growth of tissue in the wall of the intestines (such as a polyp or tumor).

Complete prolapse: The entire wall of the rectum slides out of place and usually sticks out of the anus. At first, this may occur only during bowel movements. Eventually, it may occur when you stand or walk. And in some cases, the prolapsed tissue may remain outside your body all the time.

Rectal prolapse risk factors

In children, rectal prolapse may be associated with cystic fibrosis, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Hirschsprung’s disease, congenital megacolon, malnutrition, and rectal polyps.

  • Increased intra-abdominal pressure- eg, constipation, diarrhea, benign prostatic hypertrophy, pregnancy, severe or chronic cough (eg, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, whooping cough).
  • Previous surgery.
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction.
  • Parasitic infections- eg, amoebiasis, schistosomiasis.
  • Neurological disease- eg, previous lower back or pelvic trauma, lumbar disc disease, cauda equina syndrome, spinal tumors, multiple sclerosis.
  • Psychiatric disease.

Causes of Rectal prolapse

Rectal prolapse can occur as a result of many conditions, including:

  • Chronic (long-term) constipation or chronic diarrhea
  • The long-term history of straining during bowel movements
  • Older age: Muscles and ligaments in the rectum and anus naturally weaken with age. Other nearby structures in the pelvis area also loosen with age, which adds to the general weakness in that area of the body.
  • The weakening of the anal sphincter: This is the specific muscle that controls the release of stool from the rectum.
  • Earlier injury to the anal or pelvic areas
  • Damage to nerves: If the nerves that control the ability of the rectum and anus muscles to contract (shrink) are damaged, rectal prolapse can result. Nerve damage can be caused by pregnancy, difficult vaginal childbirth, anal sphincter paralysis, spinal injury, back injury/back surgery, and/or other surgeries of the pelvic area.
  • Other diseases, conditions, and infections: Rectal prolapse can be a consequence of diabetes, cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hysterectomy, and infections in the intestines caused by parasites – such as pinworms and whipworms – and diseases resulting from poor nutrition or from difficulty digesting foods.

Symptoms

The symptoms of rectal prolapse depend on the severity, but can include:

  • Pain and discomfort felt deep within the lower abdomen
  • Blood and mucus from the anus
  • The feeling of constipation, or that the rectum is never completely emptied after passing a motion
  • Difficulties passing a bowel motion
  • Protrusion of the rectum through the anus
  • The need to use huge quantities of toilet paper to clean up following a bowel motion
  • Leakage of liquefied feces, particularly following a bowel motion
  • Fecal incontinence or reduced ability to control the bowels.

Protrusion of the rectum through the anus

Complications of Rectal prolapse

Complications include:

Strangulated prolapse: This occurs when part of the rectum becomes trapped and cuts off the blood supply, causing the tissue to die. This can develop gangrene, and the area will turn black and drop off. It is rare and requires surgery.

Solitary rectal ulcer syndrome: Present in mucosal prolapse, ulcers can develop on the part of the rectum sticking out. This complication often requires surgery.

Recurring prolapse: People who have surgery for rectal prolapse may have another prolapse at some point in the future.

Diagnosis and test

Your doctor or nurse should be able to tell if you have the problem by doing an exam. If the tissue has moved back inside your body, your doctor might ask you to squat or sit on the toilet. He or she will check to see if the tissue has come back out of your body.

You might need other tests. These tests can also show if you have a different problem. They include:

Cystocolpoproctography- A doctor fills your bladder, vagina, and rectum with a substance called “contrast material.” This allows these body parts to show up on X-rays and gives your doctor a view into how they are working.

Defecography- Contrast material is placed in the rectum. Care experts take X-rays while you have a bowel movement.

Manometry- A test that measures the pressure inside the rectum. It can show if the muscles that control bowel movements are working correctly.

Treatment and medications

Treatment will depend on your symptoms, your age, and your general health. It will also depend on how severe the condition is. Treatment often begins with steps to prevent constipation and straining.

If your rectal prolapse is severe and interferes with your quality of life, your healthcare provider may advise surgery. Types of surgery include:

Repair through the abdomen: A cut is made through the lower belly. The rectum is attached to the lower part of the backbone to support it and keep it in place.

Repair through the rectum: Your surgeon removes the part of the rectum that has prolapsed and reconnects the remaining parts.

Repair with both these methods: These 2 methods may be combined to treat your prolapse.

Talk with your healthcare providers about the risks, benefits, and possible side effects of all treatments.

Rectal prolapse prevention

Preventing rectal prolapse isn’t always possible. You can reduce your risk if you maintain good intestinal health. To help avoid constipation, in particular:

  • Make high-fiber foods part of your regular diet, including fruits, vegetables, bran, and beans
  • Reduce the amount of processed food in your diet
  • Drink plenty of water and fluids every day
  • Exercise most, if not all, days of the week
  • Manage your stress with meditation or other relaxation techniques

NDLEA arrest a 21yrs old lady for drug offence in Benue state.

A 21-year-old lady who took 14 sachets of crack cocaine from Abuja which she planned to sell in Benue State has been arrested inside a hotel with the drug found on her by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), the agency announced on Sunday, January 9.

The lady, whose name was given as Shidoo Ben, was arrested with the 14 sachets of crack cocaine at a popular hotel in Otukpo, Benue State (name withheld), where she lodged in during a raid carried out by the operatives of the Benue command of the agency following a tip-off after she arrived at the hotel.

It was gathered that the lady, who is from Kwande Local Government Area of Benue State, was arrested around 4:00 p.m. on Friday, January 7, after travelling from Abuja to sell the drug in Benue State at the said hotel.

Her arrest, alongside the arrest of other drug traffickers, was announced in a statement by the agency through its Director, Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, on Sunday, which added that she had given useful information to the agency over the drug trafficking.

She was also said to have told the operatives that she took the crack cocaine from Abuja and travelled to Benue State in order to sell the drug to some buyers whose names she did not mention.

The statement said more investigations are ongoing to know those who supplied her the drug which she took from Abuja to sell in Benue State while she will face prosecution at the conclusion of the investigations.

According to information on Wikipedia, crack cocaine is made by mixing baking soda or ammonia into the powder form of Cocaine.

Crack cocaine use is said to be extremely dangerous.

Northern Governors has expressed excitement over the move of the Federal Government to deploy Tucano jet to the region.

According to oneworld news channel there have been numerous efforts from the Federal Government of Nigeria and the Nigerian Military to win the war against insurgence for close to two decades now.

Despite these efforts, terrorism has been persistent in the country, with the issue of banditry as a prevalent challenge. After many demands on the Federal Government, bandits were officially proscribed as terrorists recently, which called for extreme measures from the Nigerian Army to tackle their excesses and menace.

In 2021, the Nigerian Army recorded ample successes against the notorious Boko Haram group also against Bandits, in the Northern region of the country, part of the achievement of the army was that many of the terrorists surrendered to the Nigerian Army.

You will recall that to further inflict more defeat on insurgents in the country, the Federal Government in 2021 acquired Super Tucano Fighter Jets, from the United States of America, to assist in the long-time fight.

There have been several controversies about the deployment of these fighter jets to combat Bandits, in the disturbed region.

The Federal Government has approved the deployment of the jets to the region, to curb the increasing attacks of Bandits in some states of the region.

Recently, there have been just too many attacks in some states, especially, Zamfara State, despite the victories of the Nigerian Army.

Northern Governors has expressed excitement over the move of the Federal Government.

The Chairman of the Northern Governors’ forum, Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State, expressed their appreciation on behalf of the Northern Governors after a closed-door, meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said the Northern Region, has been happy with the prescription of bandits as terrorists.

The governor disclosed that in the issue of security, they are starting to see progress on some of the issues, they raised when they had a meeting with the President last year. He said.

This is the reality of things in Nigeria. According to Shehu Sani.

Oneworld learnt that the former Senator Shehu Sani, on his posts on his Facebook page said “When you ask our leaders why didn’t they go to console and condole the poor victims of terrorism, they would say how many would they visit; but they never skip the wedding, birthdays and coronation events of people of their class.

This is the reality of things in Nigeria.

The bandits are out for revenge and unleashing their terror on average Nigerians. But hardly do we see leaders that sympathize with the poor or help to pay ransom and free the poor.

Even though bandits have their sympathizers like Gumi. Who even recently advocated for the bandits and said the bandits are out for revenge due to the injustices done to them.

But the question is what is the position and process of revenge from an Islamic perspective?

Do you revenge injustice and alleged deprivation by killing people who probably are suffering the same Injustice as you and probably on a larger scale?

There is no justification for genocide and kidnapping for ransom of innocent citizens as a way of revenge for an Injustice one claims to be suffering! This is incomprehensible, inhuman, cruel, and defies any form of logic!
