Politics / Re: Yusuf Onimisi (@Ciaxon) Released By SSS by emmatok: 11:08pm On Apr 12
nex: I was on my way to join the protest this morning, when I received a message via my Facebook inbox, assuring me that Yusuf Isiaka had been released, and was safe. I ignored the message and carried on all the same.

We went out to confront the SSS today. They have always been the ultimate weapon of fear which the Federal Government uses to terrorize Nigerians. Even the Army and the Police which are used to oppress Nigerians, are afraid of the SSS. The SSS even, are afraid of themselves, but we went to the SSS today, and we went there and faced them, and they were pointing guns at us, taking photographs and making videos of us, but they were wearing masks, and hiding their faces from our photo and video cameras even when we had no weapons.

Eventually, when they saw we were not bothered about their fully automatic weapons, and we didn't care about their photos, and were indeed giving speeches in their videos, they began to appeal to us, and reason with us, and agree with us that what had happened was wrong, and some of them even confessed that some things go wrong in Nigeria because Aso Rock doesn't listen to them sometimes.

Great to hear about the protest, but the nes did not circulate to gather much crowed.
I was only ashamed that out of 170,000,000 oppressed Nigerians, only about 40 showed up in Lagos, and none...not even one was from Nairaland.

bettes: I personally don't see any wrong in them inviting him questioning,they shld have just warned him instead of detaining. I mean this guy was tweeting what was happening live with pics to back it up,he posted a pic of the soldiers waiting in siege for the attackers,imagine what members of BH could do with that kind of info.
frankgreat: Dont't u understand why people are getting angry about his arrest..what he did was wrong..Its not everything you see nd tweet about. You don't cover an ongoing operation.. He should thank God he wasnt even shot at sight.

Only GEJ fans from the SS/SE won't see anything wrong the arrest of the young man.
The guy was simply informing the world of what was happening and you people are getting angry.
In better countries CNN, BBC and ALJAZEERA will be broadcasting the event life to world and no security agency will question them.
BUT OUR EVER COMPROMISE SECURITY AGENCIES ARE BREATHING FIRE OVER ORDINARY TWEETS.

Now some unpatriotic element are insulting the innocent man.

Ethnic/Racial Politics / Re: 6 Reasons Why Yorubas Rule Nigeria by emmatok: 11:39pm On Apr 08
pazienza:

Re read my post again, and see why as an Igbo, i wasn't raised to be concerned about what yorobars think of themselves, i am only concerned when they introduce Ndiigbo into their ego trips, by masking as Igbos to praise themselves.

Every group have Achievements and reasons to be proud, no matter how small it may be relative to another rival group. Look at that O.P post again, and look at mine, then tell me why i should be interested in the OP's praises for his ethnic group. *grins*

Coming to this thread shows you are interested.

I know with that dangote will feel insulted and prove to that he is rich by returning my money in multiple folds.

CFCfan: What an achievement by the resilient citizens of Nigeria! May economic development come next.

This not an achievement my friend.
What the government did is just to add other unnoticed areas of the economy into the GDP.

The economy as at now still remains the same.
Investors will look @ infrastructure, security and political stability before coming to Nigeria.

Don't get it twisted.

Politics / Re: Court Restrains Police & DSS From Arresting Sanusi & Awards Him N50m by emmatok: 9:19pm On Apr 04
Seun: I remember reading a copy of the document. He made an accusation and tried to support it with circumstantial evidence e.g. the timing of the attacks after Sanusi's dismissal. SLS is a very smart and articulate guy, but he has a history that does not assure us that he's incapable of anything like that. Gideon Akaluka. When I was in OAU, I used to debate religion with one intelligent muslim guy. I remember when I asked if he would attack me in case of a religious riot. He said many words, but he didn't say no. The thing was in him, though not yet manifesting.

Is this the real SEUN or another one.
So you have been an enemy of SLS for a while.
So, you have joined them? PDP

Charles, Phc:
FG will appeal the judgement. After all its an era of appealing every judgement. Moreover SLS will get the same treatment as he did the people of Odi community after a Court ordered the FG to pay compensation to the community and SLS is challenging that court ruling till date.

When did SLS challenge court from paying odi.

So it is right to disrupt the activities for GEJ, but it is wrong to do so for slain Nigerian youths.

Then you obviously don't get how such violence spreads..

It's not planned.. The people responsible don't have an organization. Once hey hear of such happenings, hey immediately hear Christians and go attack all that is Christian. When the Danes drew that cartoon in Denmark, people paid the price even here on Africa.

Please don't get it twisted, I wished it were different, but it isn't.. That's why we should all learn to be avoid inciting remarks and behavior..

What do you mean by inciting remarks and behavior

Was the teacher wrong to have prepared the exam.

So you expect them to respond to every mud you throw at them? The opposition should just stop being petty, their campaign has never been issue-based.

Sometimes, the way they glory in this insurgency thing makes me think they are even happy people are being killed.

Has the government ever said the truth about BOKO-HARAM.
The same government that claim BK leader is dead but cannot produce his body.

Ikengawo: It's comedy to me that so many will use Wole Soyinka's name to fight internet battle against IBOS but has never picked up one of his books or read a single poem by the man. It's so sad to me because this has been a man that has told the truth about the nigeria from day one and his 'biggest fans' support with all their hearts, the wuruwuru that he has been fighting against his whole life

Well Igbos are the ones fighting Soyinka.

ocelot2006:

I'm afraid the only person who has shown a ridiculously high level of ignorance and "knowledge" that is only drawn from watching too many Hollywood movies and games is you. Sure, the US can flatten Syria ' s airforce without any direct confrontation from the Syrian. But if you really think the Russian will simply sit tight and watch the fall of a friendly regime and the loss of their only presence in the middle east (Tartus Naval base), then you're officially high on expired weed. Russia's (and china's) actions s.
My friend international politics is not black and white.
Russia was in control of ukraine, infact Ukraine was a major bussiness hub for Russians, until Putin became arrogant thinking force will solve the problem.
Now Ukraine is gone, Cremia is just a military base.

Putin just woke up to reality, knowing Russia is going to face economic war and China is not intrested .

Lesson:- don't start a fight you cannot win.

My queen, you think you are talking to reasonable and honorable people. These people have the dignity of poo and they have no honor and no intellect. Their hearts are filled with hatred , no matter how logical and reasonable your argument is they will never listen. Just go for the jugular , they are savages with no code of ethics. They are cannibals , attack their religion of 3 Gods and child molesting, attack the criminal pastors and the bleating sheepish followers who see religion as the way of making money without working. Attack their criminal nature , the 419, the kidnapping the drug courier crimes.

Now showing your true colors of hate and terrorism.
Did you ever see a christian quote the bible to defend those crimes.
Do you know criminal pastors are been jailed every year in the country and Christians applaud their judgments.
But if the government tries to arrest any major Muslim leader you people will declare war.

Sorry about that. I didn't mean to insult you. I just felt your comment sounded ignorant of the realities of the world. Energy and weapon is exactly what makes you a world power. The US goes to war because of the petrodollar. The Syrian war is being fought because of energy, and Assad is there because of Russian weapons and energy interest. The West wants a pipeline to pass through Syria from Saudi Arabia into Europe but Russia wants to maintain a monopoly on the gas business in Europe so they support Assad. China is still a communist country and not isolated like North Korea. Why? They have weapons and now they have the market ( population) which has now transform into economic power.

You don't isolate a nation with the most nuclear warhead, a permanent member of the UN security council, an energy giant, a major weapons manufacture in the world, one of the largest producers of diamond and other precious metals.

The USSR was once isolated until her breaking.
The US goes to war with her allies in support, but Russia is doing the opposite.

Ukraine had options to choose EU or Russia bailouts.
Ukrainians want EU, but Russia say no.

Russian president is guilty here.
