Gobe! Amber Arrested For Almost Biting Off Boyfriend's Manh••d

A drunk man had slept off after a drunken row with his girlfriend but woke up to the most unbelievable sight ever of his girlfriend trying to bite off his penis. The man whose name was no mentioned said he went out to drink with his girlfriend, Amber Ellis, before an argument ensued between them on their way back home in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The argument according to Metro UK, was centered on 'how needy she had become.'
He slept off as soon as they got back into their apartment due to obvious weakness resulting from the drinks he took.

The man woke up from sleep only to find his girlfriend biting off his dick and when he tried to fight her, the woman hit him on the heard with a laptop computer.

Police operatives in the area arrested Ellis and charged her with assault with a dangerous weapon and maiming.
She was remanded in prison pending on her final trial.

Meanwhile, the man was said to have been in the hospital where his injured penis was stitched at the base.
He also received treatment for other injuries he sustained in the other parts of his body including the head, face, neck, fingers and knee.

Lobatan! Woman Seeks For Divorce Because Hubby Wouldn't Have S3x With Her Three Times A Day

A woman petitioned a court to dissolve her marriage because her husband refuses to have sex with her at least three times a day, according to court documents filed in the United Arab Emirates.
The woman filed her complaint with the Dubai Sharia Court, claiming that she is suffering from her husband who cannot have sex with her three times per day.
The husband agreed to have sex with his wife four times per week, but the woman insisted that anything less than 3 times per day is unacceptable.‎
In court, the woman admitted that her husband sleeps with her about 4 times a week.
The court rejected the woman's petition for a divorce, saying that her demands are unreasonable and she is not likely to find any partner who will have sex with her three times a day.

The judge also suggested that the woman seek medical treatment, but she refused, saying that her husband is the one in need of treatment.
The husband underwent a medical examination and was found to be healthy and fit.‎

Konjified! Strangers Caught B»nging In Mall While Children Watched..."they didn't know each other's names"-Police

Children who were shopping for clothes, were horrified to see a couple having s3x in a mall, police in California said.
Chula Vista Police said that a man and a woman, who had just met while riding a train together, started kissing and rolling in the middle of the mall for everyone to see.
Witnesses said that the incident unfolded in front of Christina's Dress Shop around 3:30 p.m. Witnesses took videos of the couple through the window of the store.

According to the police investigation, the two kept their clothes on the first 15 minutes. Then the man persuaded his new girlfriend to take off her clothes.
He also stripped off all his clothes. Her legs were in the air, and the man was on top of her, while children watched. The couple continued having s3x despite the fact the police officers arrived at the scene.
The 20-year-old man was forcefully handcuffed and taken to jail while the 38-year-old woman was given a citation. Police said that the couple didn't know each other's names.‎

Lagosians also need change...

***We forget so soon...
*What happened to the Alausa recruitment process Fashola started last year in which millions of young people applied by registering online through a rigorous process,well nobody might have died like the NIS scam but what of those who are still in emotional trauma from waiting endlessly for a test which would never come.

*What happened to the hundreds of thousands of students who were thrown out of Lasu for lack of funds when Fashola increased LASU fees from 25k to 350k?

*What happened to the Court judgement ordering Fashola and his godfather's company from collecting toll at the Lekki Epe scam road?

*What happened to the billions Alpha Beta has been stealing on behalf of Fashola and his godfather...I bet you never even knew Mr. Ambode has always been a director of Alpha beta even while he was accountant-general of the state!

*What happened to the thousands of Okada riders Fashola threw out of Business after initially encouraging them by distributing helmets before his reelection and the millions of market women thrown into penury after their local stalls were set ablaze "by accident" only for mega plazas to emerge which these people couldn't afford?

*What happened to the millions of Lagosians whose cases have been worsened and thousands who have lost their lives due to incessant medical doctors' strikes under Governor Fashola?

*How many Lagos houses have access to pipe borne water (no I don't mean bore hole) even though billions are expended to water flowers in the metropolis?

***I can continue but that might not solve anything, rather it's high time Lagosians also seek CHANGE!
If JK grew his Pharmaceutical business from the scratch to the enviable height it has attained, I believe a state can be handed over to him and he shall perform...a piece of my mind!

Umaru are you dead? The Buhari Conspiracy

"Umaru are you dead?"
"No hayam not dead", he answered in-audibly

Rumours have been going about that APC Presidential candidate is sick which has continually been denied by his party. Yesterday a an alleged "fake" medical report of his diagnosis of Prostrate emerged which was short down by Buhadists. All these are none of my business though atleast not until an annoying Buhadists posted that even if anything happens to Buhari before he completes his tenure, they have a capable hands in Professor Yemi Osinbade sorry Osinbajo to take over the reigns....haaaaa, I forbid una. Is this the change these people have for this nation...
Now a 72-year old man having health issues isn't un_common anywhere in the world but people in this category should dimply retire to a country home where they can manage their "failing health" not attempt to manage a nation.
General Buhari says he is in good condition but then President Yar'Adua said same during his campaign.
Anyway, Vanguard has reported that Buhari is set to travel to the US for a medical reason later this month...issokay!

This piece was written in October '14

And so our dear General finally declared his ambition yet again to rule the country on Wednesday and the political terrain went agog. I even heard there was a mammoth crowd at the grounds of the Eagle square where he made the declaration.

Ofcourse the body language of the opposition APC has shown that Buhari would emerge as the Presidential candidate but without mincing words, I must state that it would be an overwhelming loss for the APC.
The above statement is not a fact,neither is it a curse. Rather it is a wish, a wish from a young Nigerian man who is saddened at the nepotism politicians have come to master.

Before I continue, I would like to tell a personal family story. My father, the great Badmus senior was born on 30th August 1960, a few months before Nigeria attained independence. His parents were full of hopes, a young boy was born into promising an emerging nation filled with promises… so they thought.

In December 1983, Major-General Buhari and his cohorts in the military truncated the country's then nascent democracy, removing a civilian government from office and putting the country in yet another dark era of military intervention. My father was just 23 and he still believed in a future which belonged to his generation. This was a period when an actor Ronald Reagan ruled America and was even seeking reelection. Worse of all, people awoke to a new year in 1984 to be told that the country has once again been hijacked by power hungry Khaki boys spearheaded by the calm GMB and his side kick Tunde Idiagbon.

Mr. Buhari would later surface in 2003 when the newly restructured ANPP (from APP) made him their Presidential candidate. What amazes me is why this same man who many claims is an anti-corruption sage want to benefit from a democracy he never believed in.
Many say there was corruption in the land, many say the Shagari led government had so many thieves who were running the country aground but did this call for a military intervention?
Obasanjo came into office in '76 and without wasting time, declared his interest to return the country to a democratically elected government. This would pay off for him decades later when he was chosen by PDP to lead the nation on return to democracy in '99. General Abdulsalam Abubakar spent barely one year in office and handed over to a civilian Government, may the 'god of democracy' bless him.

Buhari took office at the last day of the year (December 31,1983) and could have given Nigerians a pleasant new year present of restructuring the electoral commission, organize fresh "credible elections" and let the country run democratically.
Like many other African leaders, he could have even transformed from a khaki to an 'agbada' head of state even if it was an arrangee election but at least Nigerians would have had a sigh of electoral tendency. But no, Buhari had other plans and he remained in the position until the smiling General sent him away from office two years later.

Now I hardly blame Babangida for Nigeria's democratic woos in the past. If Buhari hadn't chased out Shagari, Nigeria would have had a few years of democracy and perhaps by 1993, the country would have matured a bit but then Buhari didn't want all of that.

From 2003 to 2007 and then he made a return about four years ago only to be defeated again by GEJ after a loss to Obasanjo, Yar' Adua and recently GEJ. Well in 2015, GMB shall loose again.

Any progressive Nigerian who votes this gentle evil is simply laughable. Moreover history has told us Buhari without a Tunde Idiagbon is merely a paper tiger out to seek a vendetta mission against those who have allegedly stolen public funds in the past. Buhari has no progressive agenda, neither does he have a plan to develop the country.

If APC is really a 'Change Oriented' party like it claims, then they should introduce a bredth of fresh air into the polity. At 72, Buhari is too old to even make any significant difference in the country. Asides my personal sentiment over his '83 Coup d' etat, his ruling my father's generation and his wanting to rule mine, this man is just too old.

Buhari ruled Nigeria when my father started his career, today at 54,my dad is a grandfather yet our dear so-called change party cannot bring someone from his generation to be flag bearer!
No,he wouldn't steal my future again.
If Belgium swore-in a 38 year old as Prime minister this year yet it is one of the largest economy in Europe, what excuse does Nigeria have to be presenting a 72Year old man who have obviously had his "time'. North Korea, Georgia, Italy and even Mali all have heads of government in their 30s and recently news went viral that a 35Year old Nigerian might just be the next Prime Minister of the almighty Great Britain.

Have we no shame in this country. Why would we deceive ourselves and hide under a facade of anti-graft crusade to mis-lead people. Have our father's forgotten those dark days of anti-people draconian laws. Have we forgotten how the great educationist Tai Solarin almost died in detention cos he was denied his inhaler to subside his asthma.
Have we forgotten the treatment Professor Wole Soyinka got in the hands of this (then) monster. Nobody even remembers the travails of the later Abami eda who was also incarcerated.

Have we forgotten how he truncated democracy once in this country? Well,you all might have forgotten but democracy hasn't forgotten, may the "god of democracy"never make him win any election.

-Kayode Badmus

Open Letter To Jagaban Tinubu; The Unsolicited Yoruba Leader

This piece was written in May,2014

Dear Sir,
It is with benevolence that I write you this unwarranted letter to congratulate you on your numerous achievements which indeed would make other contending leaders envious. I just read on numerous online news medium now that you decided to acquire for yourself a small private jet which costs only a little over $50million(the 2nd in the growing fleet) to make your movement laden with ease. Sir congratulations on this acquisition especially in this era when Boko Haram is quite unpredictable and might attack public carriers without prior prompting. I only hope the jet is not just bullet proof but also bomb proof, "just in case".
I overheard some ignorant people saying your purchasing a  jet like my piece is unwarranted especially at this period when the country is in turmoil peculiarly with the abduction of those scores of girls but these people are just ignoble in their criticism. They fail to realize that your party's ideology is "all man for himself" which you have done well in showing us; your able followers.
Moreover, just in case those girls are rescued, remember there is need to pay Borno a grand visit with this new acquisition in order to prove to that boy Shettima that he should rather pitch tent with us permanently instead of that his envious boss Ali Modu Sheriff. Besides there might even be a need to give the girls a lift on this new toy. Congratulations once more sir, after all its not only Dangote or Otedola who knows how to cruise with style.

I hope it is also not too late to further congratulate you on your recent investiture as the chancellor of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology,LAUTECH. Again several people sent me messages expecting me to criticize this meritorious honor but why should I? A whole Asiwaju cum Jagaban who has editors in his pocket, if I do which editor-in-chief would employ me aboard their news medium so I just arbitrarily kept shut 'jeje' as a jobless Nigerian youth.
Moreover who is even more qualified for this honor than you sir, after all your contributions to the education sector especially in Lagos. These people have forgotten how you broke the sanguineous of those mathematicians' who tried to calculate the percentage of your LASU tuition fee increment from N250(two hundred and fifty naira) to N25,000(twenty five thousand naira) in 2005. Was that not how you were able to set an enviable record which was only broken by your able predecessor Babatunde Raji Fashola who increased same from that N25,000 to N250,000 and even N350,000 for some students thereby helping create more drop outs we can use as political thugs due to their half baked knowledge. These people don't even see reason that these increments help create a new set of rights activists and student leaders some of whom you have in your sagacity converted to loyal boys.

It is sad how people nit-pick you. They have forgotten how you advised protesting students of the same LASU during the 2011 fee increment saga to relax and take the increment in good 'fate' as you and your boy only intended to upgrade the school from the advanced secondary school it was to an enviable ivy league citadel. I remember the only embarrassment for us came when two law students from that same "upgraded secondary school" went on to attain first class honors each at the Nigerian Law school, Abuja; those bias idiots who failed your son, Seyi only a year later. I remember he had to retake his bar exam despite all the elitist education you exposed him to.

What would your critics even say when they hear that you advised students not to protest again especially during "my local government elections coming up this weekend because if you do you would be attacked and I would instruct news people who would gather in my parlor to write that you are political thugs". Good thing those students took that advise because am quite sure many of them who have finished their NYSC and those still serving wouldn't have had such mortal luxury.

I can go on and on about your achievements particularly in the yoruba dominated region but time would not permit because I know you might not be chanced to finish reading because of the numerous national issues that begs for your attention in your open home at Boundillon. Please go attend to them o especially the leadership of the Lagos 'agberos' whose support is mostly needed at this critical period when Ekiti and Osun comes to mind not forgetting 2015 which is just around the corner. You are just an exceptional leader,if only people like GEJ would learn from you perhaps he would be taught how to for instance buy the media with that 'dangling carrot' instead of his toothless bull dog threats.

I hope my congratulations is well received.
NB:Sir I am in a dilemma on how to send this piece across to you. If I come to Boundillon, people would say I have come to collect money but then major dailies won't publish it because I am too patisan to your cause. if Linda posts it, your people would say we are both PDP agents. Unfortunately Omojuwa won't post this because he is too much of a sycophant…now how do I post it?

NB: Omojuwa actually posted it but Linda didn'

#EkitiDecides: As Ekiti Goes To The Polls; Heads Shall Roll

This piece was written in June '14...few weeks to the Ekiti Guber elections

The past two months has been spent shuttling between the Ekiti state capital of Ado and Lagos. I incidentally was around in the thick of the campaign but like a smart yoruba man that I am, I had to quickly escape when the polity really got heated. However in the cause of my stay therein, I learnt certain things especially about the major contestants which would be shared below.

Kayode Fayemi: Good man,did great things in the state but quite elitist and realized a little too late the power of the masses. Unlike Fashola in lagos who focused on the elist while Tinubu took care of the masses, the Ekiti masses were politicaly left in the lurch.

His strong points: his wife Erelu Bisi and some members of his cabinet especially the Chief of Staff,Yemi Adaralodu (who is a grassroot mobilizer). Some of his projects would also speak for him especially the stipends being paid to the elderly and his agricultural revolution with the youth. However his relationship with Tinubu would do more harm than good as the good people of Ekiti do not trust the opposition national leader.

Ayo Fayose: The masses man,quite radical but present intent not entirely known. Bad antecedents but appears like a messiah to the masses now that Fayemi is scared of despite incumbency power.

His strong points: GEJ, federal money,Police, Soldiers, Okada riders etc. Fayose is that trojan horse who would keep surprising Ekiti people.

MOB- Bamidele: Confused man,obviously knows he can't win but doing this because he has nothing to loose(remember his sit in NASS remains intact if eventually he looses). Strong points; Good speaker, Guv Mimiko of Ondo's support, has some students support too but ekiti people obviosly knows he is a joker.

The battle is a two-horse race between APC and PDP and its going to be a deadly battle as some families has over the past weeks been relocating until after the election. Fayose has been campaigning with bullet proof vest and only weeks ago, the governor was attacked while campaigning.

Actors to watch out for: Musiliu Obanikoro(the new PDP hatchet man), Unknown Soldiers, INEC Staff (loyal to both divide), NSCDC officials (who would have a field day making arrests)and many more…‎

President Jonathan, Nigerian Military And The Missing girls

This piece was written on May 29, 2014

Today Nigeria celebrates 15 years of uninterrupted power in the hands of democratic leaders but truth be told, the mass of the Nigerian populace would rather prefer 15 years of uninterrupted power supply. Saying the country is in turmoil is putting things mildly but unfortunately our leaders think otherwise. In a recent political commercial, President Jonathan has revealed that like Nelson Mandela did in South Africa and Barrack Obama is doing in America, he is also "doing it" for Nigeria which brings the question, is he doing it?

Today, the President would address the world on the state of affairs in the country and sadly, he would assert that his government is trying its best…a statement which is more insulting than Abacha's reference to us all as "fellow Nigerians". Unfortunately less than half of the Nigerian populace would not even get to watch the President's address due to power failure despite all the jamboree about improved power generation, privatization, ownership transfer amongst all other credulous tales we are made to believe . However this piece wouldn't dwell on that, rather my focus shall once again be on the continued detention of the over 200 girls Boko Haram abducted.

Today Nigeria is supposed to celebrate the perceived success of our democracy. Today the world is supposed to congratulate Nigeria for standing the test of democratic time but are we really worth congratulating. Today I celebrate my birthday but I feel sad knowing fully well that some of these girls have had to celebrate their birthdays in the den of a confused and ruthless being who hides under a noble religion to perpetuate evil. But come to think of it "is Shekau impenetrable".

Just yesterday news went viral that four of the kidnapped girls have escaped the forsaken movement which is a real surprise to me. This follows reports of a few weeks ago which had it that some villagers in Borno killed about 200 Boko Haram insurgents. It is also a known fact that some of the girls numbering about 50 escaped while being transported from their school and some others in the early days of the abduction. Now young girls are getting smarter than these militants, untrained civilians (civilian JTF, Vigilantes, Hunters etc) have been successfully battling the Boko Haram with little armory but the strongest military on African soil which was once reputed to be one of the strongest in the world haven't been able to do anything. America,Britain and the world allegedly gave their support weeks ago but why are the girls still missing?

Children's day has come and gone and these kids missed out, so today we would be celebrating another democracy day but are we even in a democratic society? Does democracy mean insecurity? What's the military even hiding? I read with shame the statement of the defense chief saying they now know where the girls are but wouldn't be attacking for some security reasons. It is only in this country our military spend more time talking to the media than combating. I wondered the other time people made a ruse out of the fact that the president refused to visit Chibok where the girls were abducted as if that would #BringBackOurGirls. I also wonder why the service chiefs have not all relocated to the Sambisa forest hide out of the criminals but would rather speak in the comfort of their zones in the FCT. It was also in the media that Northern leaders advised the Federal Government to simply dialogue with the sect rather than confront them. To me, this sounded like "please don't kill our children,just negotiate with them and give them what they want". The honest truth is that a whole lot of things are not what the Nigerian populace are made to believe. Those in the know have more information about Boko Haram and its activities than they are making us believe and the earlier we get our acts right, the better or else the abduction saga would be but a child's play.
Happy Democracy Day Nigeria.

CYBER-CRIME BILL: We Are All Going To Jail

February '14

Just when the dust is yet to settle on the recently signed anti-gay law which has thrown Nigeria into the black books of some western countries, here comes yet another controversial bill which seeks to jail anyone who insults or abuses someone else using the social media (infact internet in general). As an individual who supported the controversial "jail the gays" law, I am totally dumb founded as to whatever might have influenced this bill.

When I initially heard there was a cyber crime bill in the house, I practically celebrated for what I described as a final solution to the internet fraud or is it "yahoo yahoo" menace. Unknown to me, I was actually celebrating what would in reality throw a whole lot of us, perhaps I inclusive behind bars. The law in its section 18 sub-section 1 for instance states that "anybody who insults publicly, through a computer system or network commits an offense and will be liable on conviction to imprisonment for a term of not less than five years or to a fine of not less than N10m or to both fine and imprisonment".

Wikipedia explains an insult to be "an expression, statement (or sometimes behavior) which is considered degrading, offensive and impolite. Insults may be intentional or accidental. An insult may also be factual". This means merely telling your friend "you dey crase or you are stupid" could simply land you in jail for 5years.

For those who have made criticizing "our leaders" a daily routine, then Kirikiri or perhaps Ikoyi prisons is your next home.

Recently words like "witless", "confused", "stupid", "foolish" etc has continually been used upon our Abuja leader (let me start learning how to "insult" with scope), ofcourse these are known as insults and again, a whole lot of us are guilty of this offense which absolutely means…well your guess is as good as mine.

Now here is the major bombshell, the law further recommends a death sentence to "anyone who commits an offence against what it calls critical national information infrastructure which results in death" whatever that means.

This bill however confirmed my fears that it was a political tool of witch-hunting when in Part V, Section four, it was prescribed that "the Office of the National Security Adviser shall be the co-coordinating body for all security and enforcement agencies". Now the Ogundamisis, Omojuwas and El-Rufais of this world should better take cover.

Its rather sad and pathetic that in this era when there is a huge lacuna between 'the Governors and the Governed' and the social media has turned into a tool of expressing the citizens' plight, the government of the day still believe that rather than enact laws that would propagate good governance which would directly affect positively those with whom they have a social contract, they only intend hunting down perceived political distractors (cum enemies). A lot of roads in the country are death traps, electricity is in a state of comatose, the aviation industry has made obituary printers sell more than ever, employment is only seen to have been given when our government states their score card, militants get paid better than the graduates, doctors are always threatening to go on strike, undergraduates now spend double the required period studying a course and worse of all the Northern Boko haram menace, yet this government would abandon all these to deal with those abusing themselves on facebook or twitter. I wonder in what category they would put a Maheeda or Afrocandy.

It should be expected that the Nigerian Police Force would now have an internet watch department to apprehend those who defaults. What a shame, a police officer situated to check all day Nigerians using insulting words on the internet. What a lackadaisical effort! I bet you, Police stations across the country would on daily basis be filled with "criminals" who insults others on the internet and most of these people would go to jail because the specified fine is even pegged at 10million naira. Walai, We are all going to jail!

Olusegun Agagu: The Man, His Travails And Triumphs

Written September '13

Barely one year after the demise of his Press secretary Babatunde Carter Ogunkorede, Dr.Olusegun Agagu former Governor of the south western state of Ondo yesterday(Friday 13th,2013) slumped in his Ikoyi,Lagos residence and died before he could get medical help. This incident occurred less than 24hours after he returned to the country from a trip abroad where he was said to have sought medical attention.
Born on February 16, 1948 Dr. Agagu was sworn in as Governor of Ondo state on May29,2003 after serving in President Obasanjo's cabinet as his first Minister of Aviation between May 1999-2001. The professional geologist was sworn-in for his second term in office in 2007 but that was short lived as he was booted out in February 2009 for electoral malpractice during his reelection.
Agagu's death comes on the heels of massive crisis in his party where he is being fingered to be one of the lifelines of the embattled President GEJ. He is the second Governor in post military era Ondo state who have lost his life following the demise of Adebayo Adefarati in 2007. Dr. Agagu was also the deputy Governor to Bamidele Olumilua in the defunct third republic.

However things have not usually been rosy for the classy Ikare native. Asides his electoral travails and battle with former associate, Olusegun Mimiko who is the present Governor of the state, Agagu has also been involved in alleged financial mismanagement. He has been having a running trial in the hands of the country anti corruption body EFCC. Also in September 2008,he was summoned by the Nigerian Senate on account of certain discrepancies discovered during his tenure as Aviation Minister.

Dr. Olusegun Kokumo Agagu had his elementary education in his native Okitipupa in Ondo state, northern state of Kano before moving to Ibadan where he had his post primary education. The former Governor was admitted to studied Botany in University of Ibadan but changed his course to Geology where he graduated with a second class upper division in 1971. He later moved on to the University of Texas where he obtained his masters degree in geology then crowned his education with a Ph.D in Petroleum Geology at his alma mater- the University of Ibadan.

He is the third of the post military former Governors from the south west region to have lost their lives. Asides his predecessor Adebayo Adefarati, a former Oyo state governor Alhaji Lam Adesina also died less than a year ago.

Prominent Nigerians including President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has been offering their condolences to his family and the people of Ondo state in general. Ondo Governor Olusegun Mimiko has also expressed shock overthe suden demise of the late politician.

Dr. Olusegun Agagu was 65years, he is survived by his wife Olufunke of almost 40years and children.

It’s Children’s Day But Then All Our Children Are Dead

This piece was initially written on May 29,2013

So today Nigeria celebrates children's day which according to the United Nations is a day set aside for the "well being and protection of children", sighs! Ofcourse I expect our brilliant President to come up with that same cock and bull line "these are hard times for our nation and it calls for a sober reflection…bla bla bla". I also expect Governors from most of the 36 states and the FCT to cancel children's day celebrations which involve match past by school kids amongst other pageantry.

Most importantly I expect those actors who throng Abuja on daily basis since the girls have been abducted to intensify their crying skills which would make Nkiru Sylvanus and even Julia Roberts envious to upgrade their new found stock in trade by devising a new wailing trick. I also expect orators and other vocal Nigerians to tongue lash the President for failing to #BringBackOurGirls. I expect that Twitter and Facebook would be filled with all binary of texts either against or perhaps in favor of the president on the kidnap matter. I expect the opposition APC to haul insult at Jonathan and the PDP. I even expect the Governor of Borno to organize a protest rally to Abuja with the 53 girls who managed to escape the Boko Rams. I also expect mama Peace to summon wives of service chiefs and demand why their husbands have not been doing enough in bringing back the girls,perhaps she might even threaten to "impeach them as house wives who don't know their duties". However at the end of the day, I expect that the girls would still be missing and we would again all go back to our normal businesses,have our favorite meals, drink our favorite wine, watch our favorite television shows etc…what a broadsided nation!

Nigeria is headed towards an abyss of self destruction and everyone is to blame. We have entered a phase when people prefer to put the blame on government for their burnt food rather than chastise themselves for being carried away. How did we arrive at this juncture, is God annoyed with Nigeria, why is the government so reckless, would the girls be brought back alive? All these and even more questions are bound on my mind as I write this piece.

Years ago, Nigeria was celebrated to be the giant of Africa because amongst many things, our Army played the big brother role. Nigeria has quelled insurgency in parts of Africa, we have stabilized nations like Liberia, we were in Sao Tome, Mali Guinea-Bissau, Sierra Leone, etc but now we need foreign aid to surmount an ordinary home grown rebellion. It's been a month and the half since about 250girls have been missing yet we don't seem to be getting close. Not even the recent invasion sorry acceptance of foreign aid have brought back the girls.  So how did we get here.

Wasilah Umah is a 14year old child whose mates where in school when she was married off to a 35years already married man, Umar Sanni. Two weeks after the wedding, the Child bride killed her husband and three of his friends with a mixture of rat poison. Nobody knows what was going on in her mind but this a child who has been defiled of her innocence against her will. She is presently languishing in custody because authorities are confused on what to do with her because she is a minor. Everyday, girls go missing in several parts of the country and they end up being sold into early marriage or even slavery and this seemed fair until Boko Haram blew the whistle by kidnapping more girls than the world could ignore, but the truth is this, it has been going on for ages without anyone paying attention. Late last year, the heartless rebels burnt down a college of Agriculture in Yobe killing several students but this didn't call for international attention. Again this year, the militants killed several students in a boys school in a gory massacre only found in foreign movies yet the United Nations, USA, Britain etc didn't see any reason to react but why now? Another drama is what is seen among the #BringBackOurGirls protesters. After the girls were kidnapped, the president set up a committee "towards unraveling the circumstances surrounding the reported abduction". The committee was supposed to meet with all parties involved in the abduction saga and articulate a framework for the rescue of the girls. One man who was named on that committee was respected legal luminary Barr. Femi Falana (SAN) and to nobody's surprise, the "activist" rejected to be a member of the committee claiming he was already a lawyer to the parents of the kidnapped girls, how pathetic. 

Now Nigerians swallowed that only to see our revered legal icon take to the streets in support of the #BringBackOurGirls campaign. Isn't it rather sad that someone who declined to be a part of the solution to solving an issue would rather take to the streets and these people claim to be progressives yet they had rather criticize than render solutions. The most annoying aspect was that Falana was seen on the street alongside self acclaimed anti corruption ambassador and former House of Representatives member, Dino Melaye. Now Melaye wants the federal government to #BringBackOurGirls which is fair enough. However this is coming from an individual who for almost a decade turned his wife into a punching bag beating her to stupor on several occasions and sadly in the presence of their children. Not even her pregnant state deterred him from battering her. This same man have been going  about attacking the government for not protecting the Nigerian populace even after he might have helped breed a new set of monstrous kids who believe beating up your wife is a good way of correcting her or a lady who believe she would be beaten up anytime she slights her male colleague.
Truth is beyond Boko Haram, we have all contributed to the killing of children around the country. Parents who abandon their offspring to abusive helps, teachers who fail in their responsibility to deliver knowledge unto their wards, and most incredulously a government of you and I who have failed the coming generations. As Nigeria celebrates Children's day today, I feel sad knowing what the future holds for these kids is nothing worth celebrating. The child died in him/her who has been made to go through this turbulent entity referred to as Nigeria and whose fault is this?‎

Ann Coulter,American Bigots and The Nigerian Story

This article was written in November '13

It is rather sad and pathetic knowing that the world still possesses obstinate and prejudiced individuals in this 21st century. It is even more painful that these narrow-minded  thinking individuals are much grounded in our so called global hegemon, "God's own country". It is without prejudice that I make bold to request the Nigerian Government to make an official statement addressing these incessant verbal attacks from Americans and perhaps demand an apology and immediate retraction but alas we don't even have an Information Minister.
Firstly it was controversial Texas Senator Ted Cruz who said "You may have noticed that all the Nigerian email scammers have become a lot less active lately. They all have been hired to run the Obamacare website". A pitiable statement which came with a rather mollifying apology from the Republican. I thought American Senate was filled with sane people!
The final pang came with the submission of Ms Ann Coulter, a cheap courtesan whose racial obsession is only second to the late German Chancellor Adolf Hitler. Coulter has continually shown her disdain for immigrants in America claiming most criminals in her country are foreigners and this time she believes a large percentage of this group are Nigerians, such pulsating exaggeration. Hear her:
"After decades of our Third World-only immigration policies, one can't help noticing that Medicare and Medicaid are beckoning Disneylands for foreign-born thieves.
The problem isn't their complexion, it's their culture. In America, we think only dumb people become criminals. That's not true in the Third World! Nigeria, for example, leads the world in criminal enterprises. Every level of Nigerian society is criminal, with the smart ones running Internet scams, the mid-range ones running car theft rings, and the stupid ones engaging in piracy and kidnapping. At the University of Lagos, you can major in credit card fraud".
 It is quite disappointing for a supposedly reputable journalist and lawyer who ought to know the implication of making careless statements to be found in this damaging situation. Madam Coulter has revealed her shallow partisanship and political pillaging in protecting the interest of her war loving republican party but then what do you expect from a 51 year old lady, three times engaged but never married, an act that is largely frowned at by the Nigerian culture...little wonder she so attacked it as being extremely criminal minded. It's funny that a lady of Coulter's status 'who keeps a low moral display of indiscipline' expects an entire nation to fit into her rather myopic concept of generalism. A lady of menopausal rank who has not been able to maintain a relationship leading to marriage. Would it be fair to conclude that all America's elitist ladies lead this lifestyle?!
 This whole ruse began with the controversial 'Obamacare' policy which as a non-American. I wouldn't want to dabble into it but what begs the question is why Americans have continuously blamed their inexpedient situations on non citizens but are quick to embrace the same people when they attain a positive feat. An example is the number of numerous Nigerian immigrants playing in their soccer league, thespians in hollywood, military men, doctors, nurses and several progressive men and women of Nigerian heritage working on american soil. Rather than face their problems squarely, they keep laying blames on us. This is really lacking the articulated superintendence America is reputed for (or which we were made to believe). I wonder why an issue which largely affects the generality of the American populace but is now being turned into a subject to vilify Nigeria. Coulter and her cohorts have failed to focus on their issues while defaming the good people of Nigeria.‎

Between our 'National Whore' Beverly Osu and our "National Prostitutes" in govt

So our "National Whore" Beverly OSU(outcast in Igboland) finally gets down with her 90days confused 'dada' boyfy Angelo in a rather pathetic and undignified manner. But then what's the difference between Miss OSU and our pathetic politRicians who f**'s us everyday without reprieve. Now the difference is that unlike former Nigerian contestant, Ofunneka Monokwu who got drunk and was 'FingerRaped' by a "married" 'dada' 5years younger than her, OSU(which best describes her anyway) warned us all with weeks of flirting and several wouldn't forget in a hurry the popular 'fingering' or "Nigeria's sub-rape" as posited by movie maker Charles Novia which the people we elect don't ever do before betraying us. For your information, Beverly kept warning and preparing us for what to expect from her, making it obvious that her highly active libido which has in the past been satisfied by people like rapper 2shotz and several unconfirmed video directors(remember she is a so-called 'video vixen') could not endure the torture of 90days without getting some. Although overnight, several blogs have made a lot of noise about the "uninteresting" bathtub act between both house mates making Beverly more mentioned online than GEJ and Dame altogether in the past 20hours, its quite disgusting the show of shock in some quarters over the if we never saw it coming. Apparently its high time I give my opinion on this evil BBA which has continued to glorify bad manners, dirty acts and ofcourse help create more jobless youths turned un-useful overnight celebs in the several participating countries. Africa seems to be at war...a war with poverty, bad governance, insecurity, economic crumbling, terrorism etc and all we can think of as a unifying factor is -in Novia's voice "Ghana giving Tanzania STDs" or "South Africa sub-raping Nigeria" or perhaps the glorification of privates parts turned continental public areas for global consumption in the rather disgusting shower hour. Like most young people, I am affected by what I read and watch on the internet and so it is left to imagination how many youths on the African continent who have been possessed by this show of shame and degradation of the African culture. Nigeria is at war in the North, Zimbabwe is in another political crisis-an aftermath of yet another Mugabe self transition, Mali at war with itself, Egypt in comatose and several other crisis on the continent and in one day, two unguarded young adults disgracing themselves and embarrassing their families overshadow all these turmoil. I can imagine Beverly's mother watching the 'bathtub show' and saying proudly to her friends in Nollyhood's Mama G's voice..."that's my girl". Oh what an irony. Over the years, Big Brother Africa organized by some disgusting firm in South Africa has continued to dement the thinking of young adults who now believe what they see is normal especially in the "globalization" context as against values they were taught by their parents and ofcourse our deceitful society. In the 2007 edition, Richard Bezuidenhout rapped the drunk Nigerian mate, Ofunneka and simply said there was nothing wrong with it. Like he said "Well, this is Africa", the rest is history as the 'Manual rapist' as Richard was referred to went on to win the $100,000 prize of the game. Again what an irony. Like the good Professor, Professor Wole Soyinka who thoroughly detest the continental show of shame, it is pertinent to at juncture posits that the silence kept by people who perhaps can make a positive change is most rather unwelcome. Its high time we all condemn in its entirety the activities of these agents of a demoralized Africa where our hard-core moral values which is synonymous to us as a peculiar people on the surface of the earth is being bastardized with the mask of entertainment. Nigeria is a Country where pornography is condemned daily and several moves has been made to control internet porn yet BBA invades our airwaves with a milder kind of soft porn while we sit back perhaps hapless as teenagers and even their younger ones are introduced to a world of immorality right in their father's parlor...atleast in the past kids who wanted to indulge in this had to do it with some discretion(hidden dvds, porn obtained through bluetooth from friends' phones etc). BBA Chase is a nuisance, why encourage youths to chase indignity above dignity,indecency above decency, why spend so much resources to promote moral decadence. Somebody needs tell, Multi Choice that Africa needs better moral teaching packages not a show where girls with kids out of wedlock and boys who should be fathoming a way forward for our economic lock jam only come to showcase their sexual prowess ... PERHAPS its high time our National Assembly who have in recent times shown interest in similar matters(#same sex marriage,#ChildBride et al) promulgate a law prohibiting any Nigerian citizen from participating in this show of shame while also prohibiting it from being aired on any Nigerian package on DSTV (We even heard when they tried deliberating on the possibility some years ago,it was frustrated by some UN-honorables who were quite excited about the shower hour). PERHAPS this might just be a way to begin checking the excesses of Multi Choice's control of our airwaves. Atleast we wouldn't forget in a hurry the embarrassment given the country during the last Nations Cup over televising on local stations. Still on the Nations Cup,I believe this is enough for the unification of the continent unlike what the thieving organizers of the amoral BBA which promotes promiscuity among opposite sex. PERHAPS in the subsequent shows we should be watching out for homosexual intercourse shown live across the continent,I can just imagine life trans-country 'bonning' ofcourse to our valueless chagrin. PERHAPS our politicians would awake from their slumber then and start crying foul. Or PERHAPS,a rift which might someday go bad with the use of sharp objects resulting to PERHAPS bodily harm or even 'God forbid on their behalf' PERHAPS murder. Come to think of it, what justification do we even have as Nigerians after all an OSU sorry OAU(Obafemi Awolowo University) student has recently entered the Guinness book of World record for Longest sex covering 15hours,7Mins and 23seconds, I wonder what this would do to us as a nation. Perhaps, I should never have even written this or PERHAPS it is my obligation to in order to prevent our future generation from living in a society where immorality 'is nothing'(in Olamide's voice) ...PERHAPS Dats wassap!
