    Before I start, I wish to clarify certain mists concerning the subject of this write up, which I believe failure to do so, might lead to some misconceptions in the minds of Nigerians. One; I am a Nigerian, but not even a northerner. But I do know terrorism or issues of insecurity generally, affects every…

  • Soldiers Vs Civilians: Of Sanity And Insanity

    | Leave a comment

    I almost lost my calmness reading through an article authored by one Mr. Elias Ozikpu, who scolded the entire Nigerian Army (NA) on account of what he perceived as misconduct by some soldiers. My anger was first triggered by the title of the article itself-“Bonny Cantonment: Where Some Of Buratai’s Mad Men Reside.” It generously…

  • SGF, Senate And Faulty Steps

    | Leave a comment

    In its customary and baseless umbrage, the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has indicted the Secretary of the Government of the Federation (SGF) Mr. Babachir David Lawal over alleged contract scams. Flowing from this, the Red Chamber has also issued a matching order in a resolution calling on his resignation or suspension. Precisely,…

    Terrorism bites! It angers, it kills gruesomely and places humanity on the cusp of hopelessness and despair. It causes social upheavals of a terrifying magnitude.

Simultaneously, it stormed the houses of…

  • Sahara Reporters’ Growing Rabidity

  • Re: Stop Army Operation In Niger Delta, Focus On Dialogue

    | Leave a comment

    If there is any doubt that there is deliberate mischief afoot in the Niger Delta, the position of one Mr Udengs Eradiri, a factional president of the Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide, on the ongoing military training exercise in that part is the final proof that should dispel such doubt. Eradiri’s misguided outburst represents an ongoing…

    Dear Chief Edwin Clark, Permit me to again write you another letter in the space of three weeks since my last open letter to you. I would have exercised some patience and see how well the issues I raised in the previous communication are being treated. However, the bruise I called your attention to has…

    Perhaps blogging is the worst thing ever invented since the creation of nuclear warheads. But even the use of nuclear warheads is regulated, tightly so while the same cannot be said of blogging. This of course is not to say there are no positives to blogging which has been deployed for social mobilisation, development and…
