10 Most Popular Structures In Abuja And Year They Were Constructed


Abuja, the fastest growing capital city in Africa, one of the fastest growing, most expensive and beautiful cities in the world have so many popular structures that draw the attention of residents. These structures are not just there for sight-seeing; but are iconic, well known, and accessible by average citizens or residents of Abuja. I bring to you the 10 Most Popular Structures in Abuja.

As earlier promised, this article is part 2 in the series of 10 Most Popular Structures I will be writing on in the next couple of weeks. As stated in the first part which talks about the 10 Most Popular Structures in Lagos and the year they were constructed, the criteria used in selecting these structures still stand. However, based on advice from readers, I will like to stick to cities, instead of the whole state. And as you know, the most popular structures are mostly in the cities. Now straight to business!

10. Abuja City Gate

The Abuja City Gate is located on Umaru Musa expressway, the road leads to the Nnamdi Azikwe 
airport. The gate is arguably the most famous city gate in Africa. Although it was built as a temporal 
edifice in 1991 signaling the switch of Federal Capital from Lagos to Abuja, the popularity of this 
structure cannot be underestimated. However, its popularity is gradually being reduced as it is 
currently being removed in parts to pave way for a flyover bridge along the new expressway in 
construction. It carries the phrase “You are Welcome” and the national flag on its huge concrete
 structure. This structure is so popular that it is even used by the
 National Television Authority (NTA) in its News broadcast.

9. National Assembly Complex

The National Assembly complex is one of the most popular structures in Abuja. It is located in the 
Three Arms Zones in Abuja. It is the official building where senators and honorable members of the
 House of Representatives meet. Its first phase was constructed in 1999 by ITB Nigeria at a cost
 of 3.2 billion naira while its second phase which include office wings was constructed 
by Julius Berger Nigeria PLC in 2007.

8. National Mosque

This is where the crème de la crème Muslim population in Abuja worship. 
It is ranked among Top 60 Most Beautiful Mosques in theWorld by Hongkiat Survey.

7. Abuja National Stadium

The Abuja National Stadium is the home of all Nigerian national teams. It is an all-seater stadium
 designed to accommodate 60,000 spectators at once. It cost 31 billion naira to construct this mighty
 structure, making it one of Africa's Most Expensive Stadiums ever built. The structure was 
constructed by Julius Berger and it took just 3 years to complete. It has played host to numerous 
local and international sport competitions, musical concerts, religious conferences and so many more.

6. NNPC Towers

Very close to the International Conference Centre, CBN building and the Radio House are the 
gigantic NNPC towers. These structures are the headquarters of the Nigerian National Petroleum 
Commission(NNPC). They house people who manage the oil of Nigeria; you should imagine
 how popular it is. 
They are high rising structures and are located on the Central Business District area in Abuja. The 
towers consist of four high rising structures which form a huge box when viewed from space. 
Each tower is 246ft high and were constructed in 1996 during Gen Abacha regime.

5. Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport

Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport is the main airport serving Abuja. The airport is about 40km
 from the heart of the city. It is named after Nigeria’s first president, Dr. Nnamdi Azikwe. This airport
 is so popular in the city that it handles over 8 million passengers annually. The first phase of the
 airport was constructed in the 1980s’ during the regime of Ibrahim Babangida while it was fully
 completed in 1998 during Gen Sani Abacha regime. 
It was constructed by Julius Berger Nigeria PLC. The cost is unknown.

4. International Conference Centre Abuja

This is another popular and iconic structure in Abuja. It is so popular that hardly is there a lawyer or
 student of the Nigerian Law School that does not know this conference centre as it play host to the 
annual call-to-bar ceremony ofthe NLS and also play host to general conference of the Nigerian Bar 
Association anytime such is held in Abuja. It is a major event centre in Abuja for super-expensive 
wedding ceremonies, local and international conferences and so on. I have been to this place once 
and believe me, the structure is magnificent. The structure was built in 1991 by Julius Berger Nigeria 
during Gen Ibrahim Babangida regime. Cost is unknown.
3. Central Bank of Nigeria Building

This 22 floors (208 ft) high-rising structure grace the skyline of Abuja. The structure is so popular even to non-Abuja residents as its picture is embedded on Nigeria’s naira notes. Construction of the structure started in April 1999 by the administration of Abdulsalam Abubakar and was completed by ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo regime on July 31 2003. It was commissioned on October 30, 2003. This wonderful structure was constructed by Julius Berger Nigeria at the cost of 8 billion naira.
2. Federal Secretariat Ministry Buildings

1. Eagles Square

The Eagles Square, Abuja is located in a high brow area within the city. This structure is the most popular ceremonial and official conference ground in Abuja and Nigeria at large as it plays host to official functions, most notably the handing over ceremony of president. It also play host to cultural festivals, Independence Day celebration and many more. It was constructed during the regime of General Abdulsalam Abubakar in 1999. The main motive behind its construction was the need to have a befitting open-air structure where the historic handing over of the military led government to civilian would take place. It is located between the Federal Secretariat Ministry Buildings. Its construction was handled by Julius Berger Nigeria PLC. The cost is unknown.

10 Most Popular Structures In Lagos And Year They Were Constructed

I know you have probably visited Lagos at least once in a lifetime, or maybe you live in the city. Oh! You have never been there?

You may have heard of the bubbling scenes, the strength of the city, the never-dulling moments, the stress and so many more. Hey, take a seat and relax because I wrote this post just for you. I want you to be familiar, at least to a considerable extent, with the most popular and symbolic structures in Lagos. These structures are not ranked based on beauty or whatsoever, they are structures which I considered to be most popular and accessed by an average Lagosian. Pardon me if I talk too

Lagos, Nigeria's commercial capital city is soaring towards attaining the status of a megacity. For years, governments and private entities across all levels have painstakingly invested a fortune into the development of Lagos by constructing iconic structures which are accessible to all types of citizens. This article is part 1 in a series of popular structures that I will be writing about in coming days. So lets get down to business!

1. Welcome to Lagos "Three Elders" Art Deco Statue

Arguably the most famous art deco statue in Nigeria, this art statue "welcome" you to Lagos, anytime, any day and any moment. It was built by Biodun Shodeinde in 1991 and was rehabilitated in 2004 after it was burnt down by angry protesters who believed the statue was the cause of incessant accidents on the ever busy Lagos-Ibadan expressway. It was also burnt down by angry protesters in 2012 during the subsidy protest under former president, Goodluck Jonathan. However, it was reconstructed.

When you talk about Lagos, you talk about this bridge. It is a vehicular bridge that link Lagos Island to the city mainland and was constructed by Julius Berger. The third mainland bridge, which is about 11.8km long, is the longest bridge in Nigeria and it is one of the three bridges linking the city. It took over 11 years to finish construction.

Just like the Art deco statue, Murtala Muhammed International Airport is a popular structure in its own right. The airport is the most known airport in Nigeria. This building literally "welcome" you to Lagos as your plane prepares to touch down. It is located in Ikeja and it is the busiest airport in Nigeria. Its history is traced back to world war II when the West African Airways Corporation was formed in 1947. Although it was first known officially as Lagos International Airport, it was however renamed to its present name after reconstruction in the 1970s.

5 Great Passive Income Ideas

Image result for income

In today’s economy, having a passive income seems to becoming more of a necessity than something of convenience. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency, shares 5 great passive income ideas to consider.

Consider Rental Income

A passive income idea to consider is real estate rental income, where you can rent out homes, apartments and office spaces that you own to generate a healthy monthly or annual revenue. If you don’t have property to rent out, you can consider renting out other things you own for some rental income. Your car is an example, if you have two cars or a car you don’t use so often, you can rent it out for use as a taxi, you only need to ensure the agency or driver is a trusted one and your car is safe with them. If you happen to have a film camera, you can also rent that out and make some income from that. Basically, anything you have that can be rented out to earn some rental income, should be considered.

Consider Doing Voice Overs

If you have the voice for it and your diction is very good, you can consider going into the studio to do voice overs for jingles etc. and earn an income from that. This doesn’t take much of your time and works according to schedules, so this is another passive income idea you can consider.

Sell Professional Photos Online

If you’re into photography and things like Photoshop, you don’t have to abandon the skill because you’re working a 9-5 job. You can leverage photo-selling websites like iStockPhoto and Shutter Stock to sell your photos and earn money while you sleep. However, there is a lot of competition in this business, but if you have a knack for photography and believe your pictures are good and able to compete, then why not? Get a very good photo-editing software, find your niche, and in your spare time work on your photos and put them up on these photo-selling websites.

Consider Becoming an Uber Driver

Depending on how flexible your main job is, if you have a car that meets the necessary requirements you can consider becoming an Uber driver and earning a reasonable amount of daily passive income. You can make your own schedule with Uber and get some extra income driving others around when you’re already driving out and about anyway. Taxify, Smart Cab and other taxi services also offer you this option.

Become a Business Silent Partner

Over time, one or two people will come to you asking for a loan to start their business. If you believe that a business has prospects and is likely to become profitable over time if managed well, rather than just giving the person a loan, you can consider becoming something like a small-time angel investor, treat it as a business opportunity and give the person the needed capital with the request of taking an equity position in the business, in return. This way, the business owner will handle the day-to-day operations of the business, while you act as a silent partner that participates in the profits of the business. The only thing is that you will need to keep track of how your business partner handles the business to avoid being cheated, but then you shouldn’t go into business with someone you can’t trust in the first place.

10 Simple Ways To Maintain Your Wig As A Lady

Wig is not just a fashion accessory but an important asset in a woman’s life. It has become very convenient yet beautiful making it easy for the everyday woman to go around her day to day job and look beautiful. Wigs come in different types ranging from straight, curly, wavy, short, medium and long lengths. It is important to take care of the beautiful wigs, so that they last long and remain beautiful.

There are some steps below on how a woman can maintain her wig[s];

1. Brush it regularly when on your head, and put a little drop of hair serum, do this once a week so that your wigs can last longer, too much hair serum can spoil the hair.

2. Do not throw your wigs anywhere after use, place them on a wig-hanger.

3. When a wig is dirty, get warm water, pour in shampoo, soak the hair in and bring it out. Do this 3 times. Rub in hair conditioner on the wig, leave for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse by soaking in clean water, bringing out and swiping with the hand. P.S use the right shampoo and conditioner, not the one that will break the hair.

4. Comb the hair gently, and then dry with medium heat.

5. After washing, add little treatment spray of your choice, then add little hair serum, do not add weave-on oil as this might damage the hair.

6. From time to time when you sweat under your wig, don’t forget to dry in the sun.

7. Do not colour your wig so much because this can make the hair shed a lot or loose its natural elasticity.

8. Put your wigs in an open place where air can get to it. Do not tie up your wig in a plastic bag.

9. Deep conditioning is very important, although I just learned this, just like you deep condition your natural hair, you can do same for the wig as it keeps it moisturized and soft

10. Do not put too much heat, being straightening, curling or drying. Do all this minimally, as too much of heat can damage your wig. If for any reason you cannot afford to maintain your wigs, give them to a professional hair stylist, that will keep it looking fly.

9 Things You Should Never Share On Social Media

Image result for social media.png

Day by day people put themselves and their family members at Unnecessary risks Just by Carelessly Posting almost 70% of their life privacy , All in the name of showing of , Having Fun , Luxurious Life attitudes..etc

Not Only that its wrong, Some of your status get to fight you later in life, fake accounts are also in abundance, which is why it is vital to keep the information you share to a minimum.

Not here to stop your from your steady and careless posting habits but please refrain from sharing the following


A lot of peeps are guilty of this ,some even go to the extent of even telling you who and who in the family are going and who is staying, Informing the public that you are off to Ibadan for new yam festival and would be there for two weeks might also end in dire consequences. as you could be alerting robbers and bad people of the situation at hand. you could post whatever you wanna post on social media especially Facebook, but when it comes to the holiday/vacation/traveling aspect , Just refrain from sharing.


where are my betting and gambling peeps ,Them who cant do without going to Nairabet ,those streets urchins who cant sleep unless their legs greets the floor of the betting houses.. you see guys on Facebook with status like “Guess What i just grabbed 750k from bet9ja, they must surely pay, on my way to the bank with them” ,Well my question to you guys is, “How would you feel after winning your game and then get kidnapped,or on getting home your debtors are already sitting and waiting at home , its not going to end well.
you can as well prevent this by not posting your winning tickets on social media better to keep this to thyself.


Most people give out their home address location more than you think , its not as dangerous as posting about your holiday plans but can be used against you. lets say “you get someone angry on Facebook, and maybe forget about it but the person doesn’t , He seeks for retaliation and he seems not to be getting any, and then you post your home address on your status innocently, see you in the hospital if lucky.
current location is as dangerous as getting a matchstick to the petrol station we all know what will happen when its lit , Never disclose where you are at the moment , There are a lot of Risks associated to it which you know and don’t need me to tell you about.


Posting details about you Bank account on social networks has no much risks associated to it , But i would advise that you don’t post your bank details publicly on social media. There is no need for it. Anyone who wishes to send money to you should message you privately, Hackers are everywhere and just need a little detail from you and your money is a thing of the past.


Almost everyone is a student of the above course , Social media has a hand in 48% of ruined relationship . Relationships that have been taking to the social networks don’t last.
Social media is not a place for solving relationship issues Infact it does the opposite, and those who bring their relationship to social networks the networks looking at you like, “Welcome Chioma, so how do you want us to help you ruin your relationship” ??


People who show off their wads of cash , Gold plated items, Mansions , Cars , Expensive cloths etc. on social media should reduce this character to its minimum or refrain totally from doing such. especially celebrities , we all have heard cases of people being held at gunpoint , robbed at home , etc. doing this does not tell people that you are wealthy its just going to give robbers a reason to…..


i don’t think any sane person as of this modern era will go on social media to post Their nudes (Unclad pictures) , especially someone who wants to build a personality and be respected later in the future.
Even if you think your privacy is strong remember Facebook could be hacked and all those pictures could be leaked to people you don’t want it to be showed to – Your parents and colleagues as examples. i read a short joke on twitter that said ” All this girls posting there nudes online, i hope you know explaining to your parents that your bride price is no more than a bottle of soft drink wont be hard”


Still using this to elaborate more on family privacy as some of it has been said in No 1 . anything family should stay family and has nothing to do with social media. If Your Family plans to buy the university of Nigeria , Good. when you people do that everybody will then know , but posting it before its being bought has a lot of consequences and security risks. some people put their parents at risk on social media without them knowing , Some even go o the extent of dropping their parents location ,“My mum just left for work” ,This does not make you any better instead makes your mum prone to danger..know this.


I can recall this guy who wrote something about first bank in his second year at school , when he finally graduated 3 years later , he went for an interview and was disqualified because of it , after it was Dug up later.

Doing the Ebola outbreak , a single status from a lady about using salt to cure the dreading ailment, killed people and left the rest seriously unconscious,she was arrested later, the rest is history. The power of social media.

You should mind what you say on social media, they could fight you later. Always speak with caution, accuse with facts and update your status with correct information.

you don’t allow anything to happen to you before you learn from it.
A word is enough for the wise.
And even the wise don’t need a word.

Top 5 Government Ministries In Nigeria


Being a minister or holding a ministry is a very massive task. A task that involves presiding over basic aspects that contributes to the building up of the Nigerian economy. There are some ministries that are very sensitive and affect millions of lives. These ministries are usually headed by a highly intelligent and competent person. We decided to outline our top ministries in Nigeria:

Petroleum: In as much as the price of crude has plummeted worldwide, the petroleum industry still contributes the highest income to the Nigerian economy. Our country is run on the income from a major natural resource – Oil. This ministry – as a result of their policies and activities, has created tons of wealthy individuals. The ministry of Petroleum is currently headed by Dr Maikanti Kacalla Baru and Dr Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu as the Chairman.

Health: The ministry of health is also very powerful. This concerns health of millions of Nigerians and policies taken will need to be properly thought of. The ministry of health has done great things in the past – from partnering with the World Health Organization (W.H.O) to almost eradicating polio from Nigeria to preventing the massive spread of the Ebola Virus in Lagos (2015). The minister of Health is Professor Isaac Adewole.

Agriculture and Rural Development: Agriculture is poised to be Nigeria’s next big money spinner. Nigeria’s weather and terrain supports agriculture. Hence, exportation of both raw and processed agricultural produce will be vital to the Nigerian economy. The ministry of Agriculture – with the partnership of the Bank of Agriculture is striving to create the avenue for growth and increase awareness. The minister of agriculture is Chief Audu Ogbeh.

Finance: We can’t describe enough how powerful this ministry is. Managing the finance of the country’s economy is vital to growth and development and this impacts all citizens. The ministry of finance is a very delicate one as it shows the status of the country’s finance. Of course, strategic decisions that improves the standard of living are properly thought through before implementation. The minister of finance is Kemi Adeosun.

Power, Works and Housing: This ministry is headed by a former governor of Lagos State with a track record of excellence (Babatunde Raji Fashola). It is very important because it provides the basic amenities that are needed for infrastructure and development.

5 Reasons Why Women Are Scared To Commit To Relationships

The end goal of many relationships is often marriage, settling down together, or cohabitation, depending on which one suits both partners.

No matter how the relationship started- with or without a clear indication of this intention – a time will come in the relationship when a deeper level of commitment will be required;
when one or both partners will demand something more from the relationship and if one partner feels he or she is not ready, the relationship faces the possibility of breaking apart.

Though men are more likely to say no to serious relationship commitments, experience has shown that women are not exempted from the fear of commitment; and in the situations where this happens, here are some of the reasons why women run:

1. Unresolved issues
Sometimes, women are comfortable with the level of their relationship and want nothing more because they are at a phase of building themselves, moving on from unhealed pains from the past, and generally coming to terms with stuff in their lives.

Adding the extra commitment to a relationship might be too much to handle at that time, and it is common to hear such women say stuff like “I’m not ready.”

2. Uncertainties
When a man proposes moving to the next phase of a relationship and the girl refuses, the reason could be because she still has reservations, fears, worries, uncertainties about the guy.
Sometimes it’s about the man, not the woman.

3. Someone better
Some other women would refuse to commit to their partner because they are holding out for someone better – in loving, finances, etc - to come along.

4. Exes
Being hung over an ex is what prevents certain other women from pledging more commitment to their present relationship.

Some babes use a certain boyfriend as a standard for all others and no matter how long it takes, or how many relationships they enter, they still remain tied to that former ex and keep hoping that he comes back.

Some women belong in this category and if there is any faint hope of that boyfriend coming back, they’ll keep everything on hold – including their present relationship with you – and wait for him.

5. She's playing
Best believe that there are ladies who refuse to commit because they’ve been in the relationship all along to only catch cruise, have fun, maybe spend your money.

1. 3 Children Drown While Their Mum Plays with her phone

This case is very pathetic because we all know that one of the basic things that children need from their parents is protection.

In Irving, Texas, in 2015, Patricia Allen went to her apartment complex’s swimming pool along with three of her five children (ages 9, 10, and 11). It was reported that both she and her husband knew that the children couldn’t swim , but her husband told her that the children could swim well enough to be in the pool. Tragically, all three children drowned. Witnesses stated that Allen was right by the pool, but she was looking down at her phone the entire time. She began to panic when she realized that she couldn’t find her children.

Officer James McClellan of the Irving Police Department recounted the witnesses’ story to reporters: “They walked up to the pool and saw the mother sitting on the edge of the pool , looking outward toward the deeper end area of the pool and also observed that the water was still and calm, and no flapping or splashing or bubbles in the water. It was at that point that the mother stepped out.”

Those children could have been alive today if their mum wasn’t so preoccupied with her smartphone.

2. Smartphone Explodes Killing Man In India

In 2010, Gopal Gujjar of India was in his field, herding his cattle and making a call on his Nokia mobile phone as he'd done plenty of times before . when the phone exploded while he was holding it to his ear, killing him. When investigators arrived, they found Gujjar lying in the field with pieces of his phone strewn about his face and body and severe burns and injuries to his ear, head, neck, and shoulders. Nokia has had problems with counterfeit batteries causing their phones to explode.

Regrettably, other fatalities have been caused by exploding phones. Such deaths have been reported in China and Nepal. Representatives from each of the phone companies involved reported investigating these bizarre deaths and are doing as much research as possible to prevent more from happening in the future.

3. Girl Dies In Search Of The Ultimate Selfie
Who would have thought that a simple Selfie could get her killed

Anna Ursu, a beautiful 18-year-old girl from Bucharest, Romania, would serve as a severe warning to these dire consequences. In May 2015, Ursu, like many people her age, was engrossed by her phone’s front-facing camera, trying to get the perfect selfie. Anna and her friend decided to go to a train yard to take some photos. One of them suggested that they climb atop a train car and take pictures there. Ursu’s friend said that things were going well until Ursu grabbed a wire on top of the train while trying to snap a selfie; the wire was live and extremely high voltage. Ursu was immediately electrocuted. The voltage was so powerful that she burst into flames.

The girl was quickly transported to Bucharest Burns Hospital in hopes to save her life, but her injuries were too severe. Anisia Iliescu, a doctor at the hospital’s emergency department, told reporters that it was impossible to save Ursu because of her physical state. “Her whole body was burned ,” Iliescu said.

4.Man Falls Of Cliff While Pressing His Smartphone

We all are guilty of texting and walking in our homes, lecture halls or even at the mall. While walking and looking down at our phone, we’ve all probably bumped into someone or something, but most times , we manage to take our eyes away from our phones long enough to be aware of what’s around us.
Unfortunately for Joshua Burwell, he didn’t look away from his phone soon enough.

On Christmas Day 2015, Burwell went to San Diego’s scenic Sunset Cliffs, a popular spot for tourists and locals alike to view the sunset. Many people go there hoping to grab the perfect photo for Instagram and garner as many likes as possible.

Burwell was no different than the many others there, but he was so glued to his phone that he didn’t realize he’d already passed the safe area of the cliff. He kept walking until he stepped right over the edge and fell 18 meters (60 ft). People nearby heard someone crying out for help, and eventually, a group made a dangerous descent down the cliffside and reached him. Sadly, he died at the scene .

Witnesses said that they saw Burwell walking toward the cliff while looking down at his phone and simply falling over the edge. “[He] wasn’t watching where he was walking; he was looking down at the device in his hands,” said lifeguard Bill Bender.

5.Girl Hit And Dragged By Speeding Car When Playing Pokémon Go

Tanami Nayler, 22, had gone out to play the augmented reality game Pokémon Go when she was hit by a car and dragged more than 70 metres down the road and killed in Melbourne, Australia.

Police said her phone was in her pocket at the time after her and a friend had just finished scouring the streets to catch Pokemon characters on Friday night.
She was hit by a stolen Toyota Corolla before the driver allegedly sped away through a red light and later crashed into a tree and a telegraph pole.
Detective Inspector Stuart McGregor described the tragedy as 'an absolute waste of life'.

He said: "All she did was just walk across the pedestrian crossing, legally, and [she] has unfortunately paid with her life because of someone else's behaviour.
"It's fair to say that this is probably one of the lowest acts I think you can commit on the road. To me it's just despicable."
"Unfortunately, we've seen the worst of humanity where the driver has got out and just run away," he continued.
"No attempt to assist, no attempt to concern themselves with the welfare of the person he has hit."
Miss Nayler, from Sydney, was believed to have arrived in Melbourne the night before to visit a friend. It's quite a pity . She was so beautiful.

6.Toddler Is Run Over By SUV While Mum Checks Phone

Surveillance cameras had captured a slow-moving S.U.V. hitting a 2-year-old girl who veered into its path. Her mother, trailing behind on a street in a provincial Chinese city, had been glued to her phone and appeared not to notice that the vehicle had started moving. By the time an ambulance arrived, the girl had died.

This happened in Yueyang, in the southern province of Hun and it led to an outpouring of anger on Chinese social media about the dangers of being obsessed with one’s phone.

“Heart-wrenching!” the Shandong provincial prosecutor’s office wrote on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter. “Put down your phone. Save the children!”
The death of Tutu, as the girl was identified in Chinese news reports, is just the latest example of how “distracted walking” can threaten public safety.

7. Woman Distracted By Smartphone Hit And Killed In Russia

A pedestrian, who was standing on tram tracks in Russia, suddenly looked up but had no time to react or jump out of the way.

She was rushed to hospital in Moscow but died soon afterwards.

The tram had emerged from under a railway bridge and the female driver appeared to see the woman late before trying in vain to stop.
Footage from the cab shows the driver opening the door to get out of the tram to help the woman.
The pedestrian was waiting to cross busy Rusakovskaya Street but was paying more attention to her mobile and was unaware she was standing in the path of a tram, which ran on tracks.

8. Woman Runs Into Burning House To Save Her Phone

Wendy Rybolt of Bartonville, Illinois, was in the unfortunate position of having her home catch fire while both she and her teen daughter were in the home. Luckily, they were both able to get out with no injury as flames scorched everything around them. Then Rybolt realized that she’d left her phone inside her home, so she ran back inside to retrieve it. She couldn’t escape the fire a second time.

A responding police officer tried to save her , but the smoke was too great for him to get very far into the house, and he had to be hospitalized for smoke inhalation. When firefighters arrived, they, too, attempted to go in to save her, but by that time, the flames were too great, and they had to give up the effort until the fire was extinguished. An autopsy showed that Rybolt died from massive smoke inhalation.

Chief Brian Fengel of the Bartonville Police Department remarked:
Material things can be replaced. You never want to go back in to retrieve anything. In this, there was heavy smoke. Carbon monoxide will get you, and you may not even know it.

Some deaths here happened due to carelessness while others were unforseen. As good as our smartphones may be, they are also dangerous.

These Are 7 Possible Reasons Why Your Car Is Consuming Excess Fuel

There are many reasons that can cause your car to consume excess fuel.High fuel consumption simply reveals that your car is not running as efficiently as it should,which also implies that you are losing money because you keep filling up more often.

Here are some possible reasons your car is using too much fuel 

1)Incorrect tire pressure
It's also one of the easiest things to correct. Make sure to use the manufacturer's recommended pressure levels stamped onto the driver's side doorplate and not the "maximum pressure" numbers shown on the tire itself.

2)Bad oxygen sensors and Air filters
They can reduce your fuel mileage by up to 20%. The oxygen sensors help keep the proper mixture of air and fuel, and having this off balance can be inefficient. The air filters can get clogged and simply need to be unclogged to fix the problem.

3)Spark plugs
They are responsible for igniting the mixture of fuel and air in your engine. If they misfire, or are working poorly, this can affect your fuel consumption in a negative way.

4)Bad fuel injectors
It is responsible for putting fuel into the engine. If there is a leak, then less fuel will make it to the engine, and then in turn make it run less efficiently.

5)Air conditioner
A lot of fuel can be wasted in powering the system when used frequently.If the weather is not too hot, consider turning off the air conditioner and drive with your windows open. At higher speeds, close the windows to reduce drag.

A.c uses fuel and having the windows down causes drag, which uses up fuel too.Here’s what to do
At low speeds, the fuel used to compensate for drag is less than the fuel used to power your a/c, so open the window.

Idling is when you have your engine on, but you are parked and not moving. Common places where this occurs is when you are trying to warm up your car,while waiting to pick someone up or when stucked in the traffic.30 seconds is enough to warm up the engine.

7)Motor oil
The engine oil can also affect your fuel mileage by up to 12%. You want to use motor oils that are high in reducing friction. Either use a synthetic oil or the oil that the car's manual recommends.

Overall, these are the major reasons why your is consuming more fuel , but the list goes on even further than this.
