mickeyenglish:At first i want to begin by saying that i am not a history student. I am a science student and i recently graduated from secondary school, though i recently got admission into the high institution. So, i am not parading myself as an elite in history,but that does not stop me from having basic knowledge of history.
Oya here is the link en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ijebu_Kingdom The benin empire was busy excercising authority at the ijebu court and conquering yorubaland city states.
The yorubas didnt expel the benin army from lagos rather the oba ordered the withdrawal of his troops because he felt that the general commanding the army was becoming too popular and powerful because of how he easily conquered his enemies. So due to the fear of a coup the oba then withdrew the army and gave the general and his family a land to settle as a reward of his hardwork.
History has it that the yoruba army never defeated even a garrison of the benin army even for once! The oyo empire despite its population,cavalry(which was copied from the nupes that destroyed oyo empire earlier) and influence was not able to defeat the oba of benin! Rather she attacked smaller kingdoms such as the dahomey.
Will you also doubt that oyo empire was finally brought down by the fulanis?, even illorin was scrapped into the fulani empire. That is why the traditional rulers of illorin are called emir instead of oba! So my friend let me tell that yorubas was only busy fighting themselves and was not able to expand there territory outside yorubaland save for dahomey, which later revoluted and regained there freedom. Will you also doubt that akure was conquered by benin?, lolz.
But arochukwu an igbo tribe was able to conquer the ruler of the ibibios(a major ethnic group in cross river state which shares boundary with arochukwu)
To me benin is the most powerful kingdom in west africa, and not the yoruba which you claim to be a super power in africa. So my brother in conclusion, i want you to know that the yoruba empires will and can never beat the igbos in terms of warfare!
Lest i forget, ijebu empire was not popular due to its military strenght,rather, it was due to its position in the control of trade routes! (Check this at the second paragraph of this link en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ijebu_Kingdom And also dnt 4get that poverty has led you yorubas to sell your ancestoral lands to igbos. Keep on selling as we continue to build up! Very soon we will lay claim to your land as part of ours and b4 u wil realise it we will be too many for u ppl to defeat! Ask the north was there fear that made them carry out the northernization of the north. Winks!

Ifeann:Wow, this is interesting, and he won't see the truth here. Its shows Allah is confused. He created Christian religion and also send moh to contradict same religion. If Jesus was truly sent by Allah (God forbids ),Why didn't Mohammad do greater works and miracle like Jesus, afterall Jesus did greater miracle than those that precede him. Its Only God can help Muslims, Satan has really blinded them.

|Celebrities / 8 Sex Scandals That Rocked The Nigerian Entertainment Industry by lalasticlala(m): 5:54pm|
Entertainers and celebrities are always in the public eye. With the media watching their every move and the spotlight beamed on them, rumours or news of aberrations in their private lives are often sensationalised and blown out of proportion.
When sex is involved, it threatens the victim’s career and everything around them, including their families, friends and colleagues. Whether it’s in the form of alleged sex tapes, rumoured infidelity or rumoured extra-marital affairs, the Nigerian entertainment industry has had its fair share of sex scandals.
NET highlights some of the famous scandals that have ensnared Nigerian entertainment personalities in the past.
. Wizkid’s alleged Compromizing Video
With the release of his debut album, ‘Star Boy’ in 2011, a star was born.
Singles off the album were chart-toppers and radio hits, and had the singer raking in shows by the hour. But fame had its price. On the road to fame, he waddled through a pool of infamy, including a Compromizing Video scandal that almost obliterated his budding career.
Few months after he was falsely reported to have been arrested in Scotland with drugs, a Compromizing Video appeared on the internet. The Compromizing Video, which went viral, showed a Wizkid look alike in a sexual act with an older white woman.
The Ogun State born singer later denied being in the video. ‘I think you are either blind or silly if you ask me about the tape,’ he wrote on Twitter. Wizkid also released a song titled ‘It wasn’t me’ to clear up all the rumours about him. From his relationship with Banky W, the drug rumours and of course the Compromizing Video scandal, in the ‘No church in the wild’ by Kanye West and Jay Z cover, the singer rapped: ‘Them say I was caught hands down in a video, them dey run their mouth everyday like radio; nor be me dey the video, (It wasn’t me) dem just put me for gbege na bad man way, only jah go judge their ways.’ The song also featured former EME label mate Skales.
Mo’cheedah and Eldee’s Twitter Unclad drama
This came like a thief in the night. The deed was done in the dead of the night, but by morning it blew up, threatening the career of then princess of hiphop, Modupe Oreoluwa Oyeyemi, popularly known as Mo’cheddah, and the home of married music veteran Lanre Dabiri A.K.A Eldee the Don.
This is what happened. In the early hours of Monday, October 3, 2011, a funny conversation between Mo’cheedah’s Twitter account and that of Eldee’s occurred. ‘If people here with us see it, just say one of the guys also in the hotel posted it to you,’ tweet from Eldee’s Twitter handle to Mo’cheedah, read.
What followed after was shocking: a Unclad picture of a Mo’cheedah look alike was posted by her Twitter account to Eldee’s handle.
It sparked up a whirlwind of controversy the next morning as it became a trending topic on social media and the entertainment blogsphere. Was Eldee having an extra-marital affair with Mo’cheedah? Why was she sending him Unclad photos? Who hacked their accounts? The questions came from everywhere.
It was alleged that those tweets were intended for the secrecy of the Direct Message feature on Twitter, only for it to leak to the public eye.
The two stars denied these allegations, insisting there were hacked.
‘Pls tweeps my acct has been hacked. Disregard my tweets, I’m working on securing my acct. And of cos THAT is not me!,‘ Mo’cheedah later wrote on Twitter.
‘Someone is bleeping around with my account!! If I fuckin catch you!!!,’ an obviously furious Eldee also wrote on Twitter.
Mo’cheedah went quiet musically after this scandal, but later made a comeback with an impressive single which featured reigning rapper Phyno.
. 9ice, Toni Payne and Ruggedman’s rumoured love triangle
This started with just a song.
After separating from his wife of almost two years in 2010, 9ice, in a song titled ‘Once bitten twice shy’ (the ninth track off his album ‘Tradition’), sang about catching his lover giving his friend ‘nodding’ — a term often used for MouthAction.
This brought about media frenzy and another sex scandal in the Nigerian entertainment industry that can never be forgotten in a hurry. A deluge of allegations and rumours followed.
Ruggedman was featured in the drama, with many alleging that he was the friend mentioned in the song. Those familiar with the situation continue to allege that Ruggedman had an on-off affair with Payne before and during her relationship with 9ice. An averment Ruggedman and Payne have since insisted was false.
Though this particular scandal has been forgotten, the true story about the song by 9ice is yet to be known. Frustrated with the negative publicity which the scandal brought upon her, Toni Payne, via a Facebook post on Tuesday, April 20, 2010, pleaded with 9ice to come out with the truth about his song. The plea was supported by Ruggedman.
‘#justsayin #FEDup A song I heard n loved months b4 it came out is causin sme minor issues so I will address dis issue by simply stating that its not my job to clear d air but I also think its time the person who sang the song ‘once bitten’ comes out and tells the truth to every1 and let us no who he sang it for,’ Toni Payne wrote on her Facebook wall.
‘TONI PAYNE My advice to you is you get 9ice to step up and clear this thing about this song once and for all so all this bullshit can stop. HE SANG THE SONG,ONLY HE CAN SAY WHO HE WAS TALKING ABOUT IN THE SONG. SO 9ICE WHERE ARE YOU?’ Ruggedman added.
.Wizkid’s baby mama drama
Wizkid‘s numerous shenanigans since he hit stardom ensure that he makes a second appearance on this list.
NET exclusively reported in August 2011 that the EME pop star Wizkid had fathered his first child at 21. The singer, according to that NET exclusive report, had impregnated a certain Shola who was an undergraduate at the time. Wizkid, who was rumoured to be dating Tonto Dikeh back then, vehemently denied the fatherhood claims.
‘No, I don’t. It’s just a rumour, I’m not thinking about that right now,’ Wizkid denied having a child in an exclusive interview with NET.
The reports, however, shattered many hearts with many fearing that their darling young and enchanting singer had fallen into the hazardous circus of the entertainment industry. To his fans and the public, he had lost the good boy image which initially made him a child star.
Fast forward to 2014, and Wizkid is no longer that fresh faced young singer we saw in 2010. Now a record label owner and ladies’ man, he lives up to being a father.
NET report was proven to be true and now Wizkid hardly goes a week without showing off his son Boluwatife on Instagram.
. The Wande Coal Unclad that caused a little stir
Award winning singer Wande Coal has not been left out of the controversies, as he once trended online for the wrong reason when an alleged Unclad photo of him popped up on the internet in 2010. His then record label, Mo’hits Records, released a statement insisting that the photo was fake and altered by an ‘enemy’ trying to bring down the singer.
Yet not many people believed that, not even his fellow industry mate Olamide. ‘Oloso (prostitutes) thinking of how to ruin me, but I know what I’m doing/they want to Wande Coal me,’ Olamide rapped on a track about not letting his guard down when it comes to interacting with obsessed female fans.
. Chidinma Ekile’s rumoured Compromizing Video
Sweet, beautiful and talented singer, with her petite church girl looks, Chidinma has endeared herself to the hearts of many since her emergence in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
This is why fans were stunned when a Compromizing Video of a Chidinma look-alike leaked on the internet in 2013.
‘The girl in the video cannot be Chidinma,’ was the popular sentiment expressed by many fans on social media and entertainment websites across the country. The girl in the Compromizing Video displayed top notch sexual performances… too top notch for our own church chorister music star, Chidinma, we thought.
In a later interview with HipTV, rapper Illbliss, who is a friend and mentor of the singer, revealed that the Compromizing Video scandal brought her tears.
‘All she did was cry her eyes out, saying ‘I’m only a small girl; I’ve not wronged anybody, why will anyone do this to me?’ I told her that we will speak when we want to and it will not be to defend the Compromizing Video issue but to communicate her success; and indeed it worked,’ Illbliss revealed.
. Ese Walter and COZA pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo’s sex affair
This allegation of infidelity from blogger and Radio Presenter Ese Walter, was made in a 3000-word article in which she detailed her affair with her pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Abuja branch of Common Wealth Of Zion Assembly.
Ese accused the pastor of manipulating her sexually and also spiritually. Here is an excerpt from what she wrote: ‘He asked me to kiss him and all I could think about was seeing him preach on the pulpit back in COZA Abuja, Nigeria, which was my home church. He again said ‘feel free Ese.’ And asked again, that I kiss him. A few hours later, let’s just say, we were rolling under the sheets. It felt as though my mind had paused. I am not saying I was jazzed, (although it’s possible I was in some trance-like state and didn’t know it but I just was so afraid that I couldn’t say or think otherwise.) That was the beginning of this affair. A sexual affair that went on for a little over a week, DAILY.’
Less than a month after Ese’s revelations, another lady, Franca E, also wrote an open letter alleging that the Pastor asked her for sex.
This scandal was beyond the entertainment industry; it was huge and controversial. Yet, the accused, Pastor Fatoyinbo remained mute on the issue.
‘I can assure you my wife and I love each other and at the right time we shall respond. Read my lips, we are going to release a robust reply to all the allegations,’ he said in a church service after the allegations made headlines across the country.
It has been almost one year since these allegations were made. Ese Walters has moved on. She has found love and gotten married. The world is however still waiting for a reply.
. Obesere rape scandal
After being accused of rape by his lover Olanike Olaiya, Obesere had to prove his innocence to the police, the law, his fans, his family and the general public. This was a shock to many Fuji fans and followers as Obesere had been known as a scandal- and controversy-free Fuji singer.
The singer, however, insisted he was innocent, a claim which has fortunately been verified by police investigations.
‘As far as we’re concerned, and based on the investigations carried out so far on the matter, most of the allegations by Obesere’s accuser, Olanike Olaiya, were fabricated. Although, they both admitted having carnal knowledge of each other, there was absolutely nothing to show that Nike was raped as she claimed,’ Lagos State Police Command Spokesperson Ngozi Braide confirmed.

I have been living almost 15 years out of my beloved Nigeria.And I am also very tired and depressed living outside again.But whenever I think about moving back home,the thought of insecurity and darkness makes me think no no.because I have experienced armed robbery 3 times while I.was still living in Nigeria.Thinking about those nights when those mean faces busted into our house while sleeping in the mid of the night always gives me goose bumps.Even when I come.home.sometimes to.spend.a week,I always live in constant fear when it's getting dark.
Rip to the dead.

THE END OF ALL THINGS
Don Kamir backed away from the CCTV in shock. He was sweating profusely and the gun in his hand shook violently. This was the same guy Dino Brown had sent after him! He had dispatched most of his guards and now had just killed Crystal! He picked up the comm. and tried to call any of his remaining guards to help him but most of them had already fled the scene. He paced around the desk confused and muttering to himself. Finally he made a decision. He picked up his mobile phone and dialed a number.
“Hello? Inspector? I need you to come to my house right away, someone is trying to kill me…Donald Kamir, former senator…Yes Yes I am still alive…Look if you don’t believe me how many people know that you received the sum of N1million every month to turn a blind eye to the Crimson mansion at Cedar point, regardless of whatever went on there?…Alright, alright, come immediately.”
He cut the call and looked at Zainab and Rimi.
“The police will be here in fifteen minutes exactly.” He shook his head.”I never thought I would need their help. At least I’ll be locked safely in here until they come then I can tell them whatever I want and bribe my way through.” He stopped and turned his attention to the CCTV as One Bullet made his way upstairs.
Rimi knew where this was going. He stood, carrying Zainab up in the process. This man was probably going to kill them as they were of no use to him anymore. He glanced at Zainab and smiled.
“I love you.” He whispered.
Zainab looked up at him, her eyes still bulging in fear.
“What are you planning on doing?” she whispered back, but was cut short by Don Kamir as he began to speak again.
“You two are of no use to me. That guy coming upstairs is a hardened killer and will most likely shoot through you to get at me. And I don’t want the police getting their hands on you, you know too much-“
He had barely finished speaking when Rimi charged him, screaming as loudly as he could, using his body as a shield to protect Zainab from the line of fire. Don Kamir was taken completely by surprise and fired wildly at Rimi. The Shot went through his left shoulder muscle but Rimi didn’t stop. Before Don Kamir could fire another shot Rimi had knocked the gun out of his hand and they tumbled over the large desk. Don Kamir punched Rimi hard on his injured shoulder and Rimi cried out in pain. Don Kamir then began to strangle Rimi, using his hands to squeeze his throat and cut off his oxygen supply. Rimi began to see white spots before his eyes as he started to black out. There was a shot and Don Kamir cried out, letting go of Rimi who struggled backwards gasping for air. He looked up to see Zainab pointing the gun at Don Kamir.
“You killed my father!” She screamed.
“Now, take it easy, Zainab!” Don Kamir said, his face swollen with fear. Blood oozed from his left leg as Don Kamir went on his knees to beg the angry daughter of the man he had agreed should be killed.
“You joined Dino Brown in signing my father’s death warrant! Murderer!” She cried, the gun in her hand shaking violently.
“And you’ll be a murderer too if you pull the trigger! Once you kill you can’t go back!”Don Kamir begged. “Spare my life! Show me that you are better than me! Don’t use me to taint your innocent hands!”
“I hate to agree with the monster, but he is right.” Rimi said, getting to his feet and approaching Zainab carefully. “The police won’t understand why you killed him, Zainab. There is no place in the law for revenge killing. Please I don’t want to lose you to prison. Please give me the gun!”
Zainab wept hot tears as Rimi gently coaxed the gun away from her hands. She held unto Rimi as he hugged her, wincing in pain as she leaned on his injured arm. He pointed the gun at Don kamir.
“The Access code for the door. Tell me or I shoot your other leg and keep shooting until the police arrive.”
“You dare not!” Don Kamir shouted. Rimi sighed and pointed the gun at his other leg and the Don screamed.
“No! No ! I’ll tell you!” He gasped. “55343078!”
Rimi went to the door and punched in the access code and it opened. Immediately One Bullet entered. Don Kamir’s eyes widened in shock. In his panic he had completely forgotten the assassin was outside.
“We don’t want any trouble.” Rimi said, holding Zainab protectively while aiming the gun at One Bullet.
One bullet ignored them and walked into the room towards Don Kamir who was still on his knees.
“Please…” Don Kamir began.
One Bullet didn’t wait for him to finish but emptied the rest of bullets from the Uzi into Don Kamir. He watched as Don Kamir slumped lifeless to
the floor in a pool of his own blood.
“This time stay dead.” He said.
He walked back to where Rimi and Zainab stood by the door trembling in fear.
“You both should leave before the police get here unless you want to be involved in this mess.” He said.
“You aren’t going to hurt us?” Zainab asked fearfully. One Bullet shrugged.
“You are not on my list. You never were.”
And then he was gone.
“Let’s get out of here.” Rimi said, grabbing Zainab’s hand. Zainab removed her hand from his grasp and ran to Don Kamir’s desk. She searched around until she saw the gold key. She took it and went back to Rimi who looked at her quizzically.
“The way I see it, it belonged to my dad as well, at least it was in his keep before your friends stole it.” She blurted out.
“I’m not objecting, but we need to get out of here fast!” Rimi said, hearing the sound of sirens in the distance. He grabbed her and running with her down the stairs, they ran out of the mansion a moment before the police arrived with Inspector Bello leading the charge.

The first bodyguard never knew what happened. One minute he was patrolling the grounds, the next he was knocked on the head and as he fell, his killer broke his neck on his knee. One Bullet dropped the lifeless body and went stealthily towards the front door. Another bodyguard suddenly came round the corner and was startled to see him. One bullet approached him casually.
“Please where is the toilet?” he asked. As the man’s brain was trying to process the question, One Bullet hit his throat with the butt of his gun and then knocked him hard on the back of the head as he fell. Unfortunately, the man wasn’t totally unconscious and made a strange grunting sound as he hit the ground. This alerted the other guard inside who came running. One bullet had no choice. He had hoped to be as quiet as possible for as long as possible. That plan just went out the window. He fired his first bullet.
Don Kamir suddenly cocked his head to one corner. The room he was in was bulletproof and also mostly soundproof so he was essentially cut off from the outside world, but he thought he heard something like a gunshot. He waited a little and soon there was another shot. Crystal who had her gun down Zainab’s gagging throat also stopped her tormenting to listen.
“What’s going on?” Don Kamir growled.
Crystal went over to the closed circuit TV installed on Don Kamir’s control desk and checked. She saw four bodies lying motionless on the ground outside and lots of guards running about but not the source of the commotion. She switched to another camera and then another, and finally she saw him; a man in a black outfit steadily approaching behind two confused looking guards. As they turned around his gun fired twice and they both dropped dead. She noticed the way he held his gun and another evil smile played on her lips as she realized who it was.
“Stay in here, Boss.” She said, gripping her gun tightly. “I need to go and see an old classmate.”
Then she went to the door and punched the access codes. The door opened with a whoosh and Crystal stepped out of the room. Rimi turned to face Don Kamir who was already behind his huge desk and had pulled out another gun.
“If it is the police then I should be able to use you two as hostages. If not I’ll have no further need of you. Either way you are dead already!” He fumed, pointing the gun at them.
Rimi looked at Zainab sitting on the floor. She stared back at him wide-eyed. The loomk on her scared face tugged at the protective instinct in him and he got up and went to sit beside her as she collapsed in his body with sobs.
“It’s going to be alright.” He whispered. “It‘s going to be alright.”
One bullet found himself pinned to the side of the wall as the other guards opened fire on him. Their AK-47s sprayed bullets in his position effortlessly, tearing away at the plastered wall that served as his shield. He forced his mind to remain calm as he considered his options. Luckily the last two guards he had killed had been carrying fully loaded Uzis. He waited until the guards stop their barrage of bullets then quickly peered across the wall, shooting two guards down with a burst of both Uzis and marking the position of four others. He retreated behind the wall again as another barrage of bullets came his way. He waited patiently until they had emptied their clips then jumped out again, firing one shot in each of the previously marked positions. The guards there fell like puppets whose strings had been cut.
He jumped behind the wall again grinning to himself. Big, muscular unintelligent oafs. He noticed the conspicuous door at the top of the stairs and decided that would be where their boss would be hiding. He came out again, firing and moving forward at the same time. Most of the guards had started retreating in a panic; for there was nowhere One Bullet fired that al least one person didn’t lose his life. One of the guards pointed his gun frantically and fired but the gun got jammed. One Bullet stared at him icily and the man turned to run, but before One Bullet could raise his hand another shot came from upstairs, puncturing a hole in his skull. The man dropped lifeless to the floor and One Bullet turned around.
“Crystal Clear.” He noted with a not so fond remembrance.
“Hello One Bullet.” Crystal smiled as she walked casually down the stairs. “What are you doing back in Nigeria?”
“Came to finish a job.” One bullet replied, his trigger finger itching to move.
“Ha, that’s bad, One bullet. It means you left a job unfinished before you left? Are you losing your touch Sir?”
“Why are you here, Crystal?” One bullet asked. Her last question had angered him.
“Why, to take care of your last failure of course. To make sure he continues to live so as to remind you that all the noise you made back at the
Assassin’s academy was all a crock of poo.”
“You dare challenge me, Crystal Clear?” One Bullet asked with a wry smile. “You were always at the bottom of the class. Not too bright and
downright ugly too.”
“I hate being called ugly.” Crystal said and suddenly fired a shot. The Uzi at one bullet’s left hand shattered to pieces. One bullet pointed his other Uzi at her and fired but Crystal was fast and jumped down the stairs behind a concrete pillar. The bullets passed harmlessly above her. As One Bullet ran forward firing, Crystal fired a shot that got him on the right shoulder. He fell backwards and crawled behind a heavy wooden table for cover. Blood quickly soaked the shirt he was wearing and he fought to blank out the pain.
“That is the second time you have missed, honey!” Crystal clear sang happily from behind the pillar as she pulled out her other gun. “Seems like the bottom student of the class is going to kill you today!”
Suddenly she heard a cracking noise and looked up. The electric cord of the chandelier above her had been shredded by One Bullet’s last firing.
He hadn’t been aiming for her after all! She jumped away from the pillar just as the chandelier fell to the place where she had previously been
with a crash. She quickly struggled to her feet but it was too late. One Bullet had the nozzle of the Uzi against her skull.
“That door you came out from. It is opened via access codes. Can I have them?” He asked quietly.
“Okay.” One bullet said and blew her brains out.

“But why kill you for a key?” Rimi asked. “Why kill Zainab’s dad, who by the way wasn’t really at fault? What on earth is so special about this key?”
Don Kamir grinned and took another drink from his glass before continuing.
“Eight years ago, a computer guru named Christopher was able to hack into all the computer networks of all the banks in Nigeria, Ghana, and some of the other surrounding African countries. From there he was able to create a program to pilfer small amounts of change from ALL the accounts in these banks. Change that wouldn’t be missed, like N20, N50, N100, even a few hundred thousands from our greedy politicians. They had so much money they didn’t miss it when a few hundred thousand naira disappeared into thin air. This computer program has been running for eight years now. EIGHT YEARS. And it is completely untraceable. The guru would have been the richest man in Africa, maybe even the world, if his ego had allowed him to keep quiet. But no, he had to brag about it. Somehow his bragging got to our quarters and we were able to employ this Guru. We made him give us the access codes to the account. Whoever has the access codes controls the account, no questions asked. The access codes we locked up in a safe deposit box which is essentially 20inches of pure steel. The only way to open that box is through this key.”
He waved the key about playfully and put it on the huge desk at the centre of the room.
“We never told the guru about the key though, and we warned him that if we ever found out that he tampered with the access codes in any way he would be killed instantly. He complied, didn’t seem to be the sort that was driven by money anyway, and left the access codes and key in our possession. Dino Brown and I thought of who we could keep the key with for safekeeping and we thought of an old school friend of his who Dino Brown had helped become a Jeweler.”
“But why my father?” Zainab asked.
“Mr. Adamu was the perfect candidate. Innocent, not one to ask too many questions as long as his family never went hungry again, he was ecstatic when we opened a bank for him. He knew nothing about the key, of course. All we had to do was sit tight for a few more years and we would be rich beyond our wildest dreams. But then some petty thieves came and messed up our plans. We were not even sure if Mr. Adamu himself was involved but we had him killed nonetheless. And then we couldn’t find the key. Even if we broke into the bank and somehow opened the vault, there was no way of opening the steel box short of a massive bomb which would incinerate the chip with the codes anyway. You can imagine why Dino suddenly became very sick. I myself wasn’t in good shape and was beyond shocked when Dino attempted to assassinate me.”
Don Kamir walked over to Crystal and cupped her ugly face. Her smile never left her lips.
“Do you know how much that account will be worth now according to our calculations?”
“Billions of Dollars.” Crystal grinned. Don Kamir smiled and kissed her full on the lips. She kissed him back and for a moment Rimi thought they had forgotten about them.
There were no guns pointed at them and the two people in front of him were a maniacal middle aged man and a small statured ugly woman. He was sure he could take them both down in a surprise attack. Without warning he lunged forward.
As he was about to strike, Crystal pulled away from Don Kamir and judo kicked Rimi straight in the groin. Rimi doubled up instantly as pain paralyzed him. He tried to recover but Crystal was already beside him. She moved so swiftly that Zainab gasped. She gave him an uppercut to his jaw and his neck snapped up, then finally she put a leg behind him and punched him hard on the chest. Toppling over her leg, Rimi landed heavily on the floor, all his body racked in severe pain.
“Don’t be in such a hurry to die. We will kill you eventually don’t worry,” She said and smiled at Zainab who was rushing forward to help Rimi.
“You have pretty earrings my dear.” She said and before Zainab could reply, she had drawn her guns and fired two shots. Zainab’s dangling earrings burst into pieces and Zainab screamed as blood spurted from both ears.
Don Kamir was laughing loudly.
“Nice shot Crystal! Let’s see you play with them some more before we kill them!”
“With pleasure Sir.” Crystal smiled.
Zainab screamed again and tried to get away as Crystal walked gracefully towards her like a tigress going after her prey.
One Bullet counted the number of bullets in the gun he had acquired from the dead Hassan. Six bullets left. That meant he had to acquire another gun by the sixth shot. He checked the gun thoroughly for any faults, dismembered it and assembled it back together. It was a nice piece. He closed his eyes and imagined the ocean and birds and calm, soulful music. He needed his full concentration and calmness for what he was about to do. The only thing that pervaded the calm state of his mind was the name Kamir. He remembered a Kamir he had been sent to kill, A very tough case where he had not been at his best and the man was surrounded by bucketfuls of bodyguards. They looked like the same bodyguards he had been seeing parading the grounds around the mansion; big muscular but exceedingly clumsy men as far as he could tell. Kamir, the Kamir he was thinking about, was supposed to be dead. If he was alive then it meant One bullet had missed a target. It meant he was no longer deserving of that name. He hummed to himself in the underbrush beside the garden and calmed his mind further. When he opened his eyes they were crystal clear. He knew what he had to do.
He was going to finish the job. He was going to kill Don Kamir a.k.a Senator Donald Kamir.
It wasn’t about the money anymore. He had a reputation to maintain.

|Nairaland / General / Dirty & Disturbing Online Political Campaign Tactics By Paid Party Agents! by DickDastardly(m): 4:54pm|
This paid agents has infiltrated every online platform and are easily identifiable by how low and crude they get in earning their wages.
Their job definition is simple, read below:
(1) Praise and launder the image of their paymaster even if he is Lucifer himself.
(2) Attack anybody with contrary opinion with the villest of curses(especially in the face of defeat by a superior arguement)
(3) Dig out old dusty family pictures of the paymaster from God-knows-where, put it online and argue that he is a loving family man(even if everyone else knows he's a monster)
(4) Get the paymaster to snap new pictures in suits and poses that will make models green with envy(not minding that everyone knows that the man in question will only adorn such attire in real life at gun point)
(5) Upload pictures of their man wearing mummy-like smiles to force fake amiabilty down the throat of gullible voters.
(6) Upload any seeming compromising picture or silly memes of their mark and tag it anything to derride him.
(7) Create mass-monickers to easily harvest "likes" for seeming positive comments attributed to their paymaster to make them appear popular to the uninformed.
( Create monickers with a particular tribe's language or name, so they can always claim roots and be like "even though i'm from same place as so so and so, i will not vote for him" (and we all know he or she is not from there) witty devils
(9) Avoid threads on achievements of their mark like plague and feast on seeming negative topics of their mark like balded vultures on dead putrified meat.
(10) Create a counter thread immediately one pops up against their paymaster and demand its immediately sent to home page, else the forum management is criminally biased.
(11) Hover around like hawks online 24/7 in case verbal attack duty calls.
(12) Add your own observations.
There are genuine party/candidate supporters. But you dont need to look too hard to see they are not on anybody's payroll. They normally will praise their party/candidate when they merit it, but are also quick to criticize or condemn their wrongs.
The paid Agents in their characteristic style will either avoid this thread like leprousy or come out fangs-out to attack me.
I cant wait for Febuary 2015 to come and go so we can have our online forums, espcially NAIRALAND back from these pests and their current dirty campaign pestilence.

I agree he is dumb. But Soyinka didn't say what's in that article.

Do you understand what you copied there You obviously didn't get it. What Soyinka was saying in there is that, Buhari is great and all, but we should still extract more from him by asking questions about what he tends to do, since he's not god. So jonathan is dead and doesn't even come a distant option according to the Prof. Go through it again and read it slowly.
