Girl, 13, has her appendix and part of her bowel removed after dangerous TikTok trend nearly led to her death

A 13-year-old girl who copied a dangerous TikTok trend was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery after she started vomiting “black stuff” and complained of bad stomach pains.

 

Faye Elizabeth’s daughter, who didn’t want her name to be public, ended up having her appendix and part of her bowel removed.

 

The challenge she took part in is one that shows users how to create the appearance of a tongue piercing by placing magnetic ball bearings underneath and on top of the tongue, Liverpool ECHO reports.

 

The teenager tried to take part in the challenge and film it but she only succeeded in swallowing the beads, with 15 magnetic beads mashed amongst her internal organs.

 

The girl’s mother, Faye, from Rainhill in Merseyside, England, said: “The pains got worse so I took her to Whiston Hospital.

 

“They thought it might have been her appendix at first.

 

“Then they ruled that out and thought it might have been gastroenteritis until she started vomiting black stuff.

 

“They did a scan and found 10 of the ball bearings.”

 

Magnetic balls were lodged in her bowel and appendix, Faye added.

 

 The girl was rushed in for emergency surgery at Alder Hey Children’s hospital.

 

Faye said: “They had to take part of her bowel away and re-stitch it. There was one stuck in her appendix so they had to remove that.”

She’s been left with a scar over six inches long and is still in hospital trying to recover. She won’t be able to go home for another week or two.

 

The mum added: “I don’t know when she swallowed them because she didn’t admit at first to doing it. I think she was a bit scared of admitting what she’d done.

 

“Apparently she watched a TikTok video where there’s a trend that all the kids are doing at the minute.

 

“I haven’t actually seen it but she told me about it and a lot of other children her age have seen it.

 

“They put one of the beads on top of their tongue and one underneath and it makes it look like their tongue is pierced.

 

“And then she saw one where they put a big bead in the side of your cheek and put little beads on top of your cheek and you move it with your tongue so they move on your face.

 

“They’re magnets but because they’re so small they’re easy to swallow.”

 

Just last Sunday, May 23, an 11-year-old boy was left on his death bed after copying the same tongue-piercing game.

 

He swallowed five small magnetic balls and was left in a “critical” condition after infections spread from two major surgeries

Family of Lagos taxi driver killed by police gets N10m compensation

The family of taxi driver, MrAdeshina Adeosun, who was killed by the police, has been paid a N10million in compensation by Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution for SARS-related abuses and other matters.

Mr Adeshina family was among the six recipients of N19.25million compensation by the panel, all victims of police brutality.

Chairperson of the panel, Justice Doris Okuwobi (retd) presented the cheques to the victims or their families on Friday, September 24.  The others who received compensations include Akinmade Akinrolabu who got N1.5 million; Sanusi Oluwakemi N750, 000; Patrick Michael N3 million, Ayomide Oyewunmi got N1 million and Oluwatosin Odebode N3 million.

The family of Adeshina Adeosun, a taxi driver, had appeared before the panel to demand for justice. According to the family, police officers attached to Olosan Police Station in Mushin axis of the state shot at him at Fan Milk junction around Mushin axis of Lagos, on October 20, 2020, during the #EndSARS protest, leading to his death.

Adeosun’s daughter, Funmilayo, who witnessed how her father was fatally shot by the police, told the panel in February that his body was also seized by the police attached to the Olosan station in Mushin. Justice Okwuobi ordered the Lagos police to provide the deceased body for burial. She also advised that the Nigerian police officers be trained on how to handle a crowd and a riotous situation.

Ayomide Oyewunmi, 14, got N1million following the trauma he suffered while being handcuffed by some police officers attached to the Ajah area of the state. His father, Taiwo Oyewunmi, had told the panel that the police officers invaded his residence and handcuffed his son.

Mr Oyewunmi said that it took the intervention of the station’s DCO and instruction from the “higher authority not to detain the minor in the cell” adding that his son was traumatized following the incident.

His father had in May on his behalf demanded financial compensation of N25 million.

The panel ruled that the 14-year-old was subjected to fear and exposed to danger and is entitled to compensation and apology from the police.

Prince Kpokpogri, who is the chairman of the Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum, described his ex-lover as “Helen of Troy” and claimed their short affair was stressful .

“We dated for just  three months and it was more or less a living hell! So much has happened in a that short period that I let go it for the sake of the so-called relationship and my sanity,’’ Kpokpogri said while reacting to the news of their break-up.

Kpokpogri was thrust into the limelight after Tonto Dikeh reveal  him on his birthday on 27 June on her Instagram page. The once happy relationship crashed after a viral voice note and a phone call between Kpokpogri and a socialite was leaked online by an Instagram gossip blogger.

Petitions

In a petition against Kpokpogri  6 September and addressed to the Commissioner of Police, FCT Command, Dikeh through her counsels in Festus Keyamo Chambers, Okechukwu Uju-Azorji, and Arinze Egbo made several shocking revelations.

They said, ‘‘That in June 2021 one Prince Kpokpogri Joseph started to court our client with a proposal to marry her. In the process, he would invite our client to his residence, and sometimes he came over to our client’s residence. Unknown to our client, the said Joseph Kpokpogri (who our client later discovered to be a serial blackmailer) had other motives for courting our client’’.

2-Blackmailer:

King Tonto accused him of being a hardened blackmailer. In the petition, Dikeh alleged that he blackmailed her and “stage-managed” their relationship for personal gains.

‘‘Our client now has reason and evidence to believe that Prince Joseph Kpokpogri had planted closed circuit Television Cameras (CCTV cameras) at private areas of his residence, and had stage-managed those visits with the aim of blackmailing our client. She was surprised when sometime in August 2021, the suspect started demanding money from her and threatening to expose nude pictures and other such documents relating to her to actualize his demands’’.

3-Fraud:

king Tonto  Dikeh also said Prince Kpokpogri under false pretense obtained huge sums of money from her.

4-Invasion of privacy:

She also accused him of planting closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV cameras) at private areas of his residence and had stage-managed those visits to blackmail

They said, ‘‘Our client believes that some of that information was obtained by wire-tapping her phone and/or through such other means without her authorisation’’.

They also added that Kpokpogri started sending messages, documents, and files containing sensitive information and materials relating to Dikeh to her phone while also releasing some to taddedblic.

5. Threat to life:

King Tonto Dikeh added that she was threatened not to speak badly about Prince Kpokpogri. She said, “that if she writes anything against the said Kpokpogri, her life will be on the line; that they know where her son is schooling and every other detail about her.”
