|Crime / Re: 40-year-old Man Arraigned For Raping Neighbour’s 7-year-old Daughter by somegirl1: 3:59pm On May 22|
Crime isn't an individual thing when an Igbo man is caught with drugs in Asia so why is it suddenly an individual thing?
|Culture / Re: King Jaja Of Opobo And Wives In The 1870s [ Location: Rivers State ] by somegirl1: 11:00am On May 21|
Opobo is Igbo land now because it suits your agenda and would revert to being Rivers Ijaw in a political thread. Funny.

Were Jaja's wives Igbo?

He must have been asked again and again or his previous remarks are being recycled.
I doubt any sane person would go about repeating himself like he's stuck on replay when he's not asked the question.

Why would anyone want to eat that?

Stop getting yourself worked up unnecessarily.
They probably refer to Nigerians as Igbo as a large percentage of Nigerians in Thailand are Igbo. Not because Igbos have specifically been identified as drug dealers.
I can see how desperate you are for this to be true.
Are you saying that a non-Igbo is more likely to get away with drug smuggling than an Igbo person?
If that were the case, I don't see why any potential drug smuggler wouldn't just get a passport with a non-Igbo name. Very easy to do. How then would they be identified?'

|Crime / Re: Malaysia Sentence Nigerian Female Student To Death For Drug Trafficking by somegirl1: 3:23pm On May 19|
Wouldn't they first have to be able to identify Igbo names? That's the tricky bit.
I'm guessing you know all Igbo names and Igbo name formats. Did you not just incorrectly guess that the subject of this post is Igbo when in fact Unazi is a Benue name. Can you tell whether someone with the surname Osa is Igbo or Bini, Olumba igbo or Cross River, Okoro Igbo or Urhobo, if their first names are English? I'm sure you would think Ochigbo is an Igbo name or Ola is definitely not Igbo . If you don't know, how can you educate others? That's assuming that these people actually care to differentiate among Africans, not to speak of Nigerians.
I doubt they'd subject non-Igbos to less checks than they would Igbos.
I haven't been given special attention on any of my asian trips because I'm Igbo. Perhaps it only happens in your neighbourhood.
If you truly want to mend your image abroad, join the movement for peaceful secession. As long as we hold the same passport, we are in the same boat.

I think camera phones should be banned in Nigeria. People are now money interested in reporting stories than rendering help.
|Politics / Re: Borno Gov To Buhari: Give N/east 13% Oil Derivation by somegirl1: 11:49am On May 19|
Wasn't he the same governor that is said to have paid N100m to a boko haram leader's father in law as compensation?
A state that can afford to do that shouldn't have money problems.
|Politics / Re: United Nations Population Funds (UNFPA) Suggests Abortion For Boko Haram Babies by somegirl1: 11:16am On May 19|
Why are those in support of keeping the pregnancies mostly men?
Says a lot.
Only two situations in which I would never discourage abortion - where the woman was raped and where the child would be born with a serious health defect.
The girls in question probably don't even know who the fathers are.They should be allowed to choose what they feel is best for them and quickly too.
|Education / Re: Photos: Sosoliso Plane Crash Survivor Kechi Okwuchi Graduates From College by somegirl1: 9:02am On May 19|
Nope, she's Igbo. Her name is Ijeoma.
Education is key to Igbos.
|Crime / Re: Malaysia Sentence Nigerian Female Student To Death For Drug Trafficking by somegirl1: 4:59pm On May 18|
give your self a round of applause. I hope you at least get paid for your efforts.
I see Igbos being very terrified of you.
Until the passport is changed. We are all seen as the same.
Continue in your delusion. I shall be travelling to Asia again late this year or early next year. I'll ask the immigration officials whether they aren't forgetting to inquire about my ethnic group.
|Crime / Re: Malaysia Sentence Nigerian Female Student To Death For Drug Trafficking by somegirl1: 4:19pm On May 18|
Such a liar.
I've holidayed in Asia more than once. I've never been asked what part of Nigeria I'm from.
Reserve your story for ignorant people.

You are still in denial of your shortcomings. Whenever we see news of an 8 yr old being raped by a grandpa, not married off, the perpetrator usually from the west. A story about a father raping his daughter or an uncle, his niece, still west. It's usually not between two consenting adults.
I'm not sure what villages are like where you're from but in the east, people don't marry from the same hamlet. Neighbouring ones, yes. Conducting checks prior to marriage to confirm that a couple are not related is very much part of the tradition.
Cannibalism has not been proven.
You should first accept and fix yours as an example to others.
P.S. I'm glad we both agree on the staleness of your earlier comment.

Sarcasm......I thought it was evident.
I never complained about unfair treatment of Igbos. We are not at yours or anyone's mercy.
I only wanted to establish that not all non-yoruba. non-hausa names are Igbo names and hopefullly communicate that the issue is not just an Igbo issue. The part of your comment alluding to disappointment etc., stale.
|Crime / Re: Malaysia Sentence Nigerian Female Student To Death For Drug Trafficking by somegirl1: 8:02pm On May 15|
