idupaul: The soldier has overstepped .. He should have handed over the guy to the appropriate authorities so the Lagos traffic edict can be applied.. What I see here I just plain intimidation meaning if the guy does not obey him he would shoot the guy for crossing a road and this clearly goes against why the law was put in place. The law was put in place to protect the guys life and as such the penalty of breaking such a law can't be a punishment that is a probable threat to life
So that the man can bribe these "appropriate authorities" and walk away free.

trolling: that country is a jungle, see how humans are treated
Or how human beings treat themselves?
A grown up man sees a bridge but instead decides to risk his life by crossing a very busy and dangerous road- if he gets killed by a vehicle, he will leave the driver with mental scares for life and leave his family in sorrow.
That is the treatment that most Nigerians need to stop behaving like animals.

JMOI: Yoruba gang busted in the US
It is not a contest of which tribe has more criminals- the answer to that very clear.
I was responding to you when you brought up the Woolwich incidence and the funny blasphemous comment about you spreading "God-given wealth" and wisdom.

JMOI: We, the Igbos, have dwelled harmoniously with our hosts wherever we go all over the world. That's why we are found everywhere and that's why they are always willing to throw their gates open for us to enter. We bring with us our God-given prosperity and wisdom everywhere we go.
In Indonesia, Malaysia, China, SA?
Are these examples of the God-given prosperity and wisdom you share all over the world?
Today, it has been reported on this same site, though on another thread (https://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-439215.0.html ) that the underlisted, ALL OF THEM IGBOS, are either awaiting execution or serving life jail sentences in Indonesia. Are you guys now willing to repent and swallow your words?

SHENZHEN: A Nigerian man received the death penalty Tuesday in Dongguan, Guangdong province, after being convicted of drug trafficking. Experts say it is the first case in the southern manufacturing city in which a foreigner has received a death sentence for drug trafficking.
His sentence was handed down from the Guangdong Higher People's Court. The execution still needs the review and final approval of the Supreme People's Court.
Osonwa Okey Noberts, 37, was found trading nearly 6 kg drugs to Chinese drug dealers at his rented apartment in Baiyun district of Guangzhou from February to April 2008, according to the investigation.
"Osonwa Okey Noberts took the drugs from the suppliers and sold them to the lower-tier buyers in China. The amount of heroin reached 5,978.1 grams. He deserves the most severe punishment," said a press release by the Intermediate People's Court of Dongguan, where the final verdict was announced.
Zhang Dongxiang, the 27-year-old Chinese girlfriend of Noberts, received a death sentence with a two-year reprieve for assisting the illegal trade.
They lived together starting in July 2007 but when she discovered almost six months later that the Nigerian was trafficking drugs, she rented another room next to their apartment to facilitate the trading and provided necessary help.
Two other Chinese drug dealers, Wu Xianjun and Jiang Xuzhi, also received death sentences with two-year reprieves for drug trafficking and employing people for the illegal activities. Policemen found guns and bullets in their homes when they were arrested in April 2008.
The Guangdong Higher People's Court upheld the convictions of the first trial at the Dongguan Intermediate People's Court in June last year but reduced the sentences on four of the convicts after taking into consideration their appeals, the report said.
According to China's criminal law, trafficking of more than 50 grams of heroin can warrant the death penalty.
Official statistics showed that drug trafficking by foreigners is becoming rampant in Guangdong.
Four foreigners, along with five other suspects, have been in custody since they were caught in Shenzhen for allegedly smuggling 144.5 kg of heroin from Pakistan in September 2009.
The Guangzhou Intermediate People's Court heard eight drug-trafficking cases, involving nine Africans, were involved, in November 2008. Eight received a stay of execution, while the ninth person was sentenced to life imprisonment.

Whenever you hear this kind of news, before you hear the name of the perpetrator, one can always bet it's an Igbo name. Why is this very very predominant amongst the Igbos lads and lasses. Traditionally, I respect the Igbos for their industriousness and creativity, but what's happening these days?

So in the opinion of Ibos, Mr Dele Ore comments represents the views of all Yorubas?

The Great man that the enemies referred to as "the old mad Professor" has decided that some Nigerians deserve the leaders they have

You are wasting your time debating with some particular posters. To these folks, any constructive criticism is automatically dismissed as opposition

So Csun, I assume you cannot answer my question above? Goodnight
|Politics / Re: National Confab: Why We Won’t Discuss Breaking Up Nigeria By Sen. Femi Okurounmu by Midastouch1: 11:35pm On Oct 26, 2013|
sCun: I didn't even see this before I replied him. That is the main problem, using Nairaland to judge. Mostly posts from the same people with different IDs. Very funny
I am really struggling to decipher how you have concluded that my summations are solely based on evidence from NL- where did I say such?
As for your accusations about multiple IDs- fairplay to you- attack the post and not the poster- simple internet decorum
|Politics / Re: National Confab: Why We Won’t Discuss Breaking Up Nigeria By Sen. Femi Okurounmu by Midastouch1: 11:32pm On Oct 26, 2013|
sCun: How many Igbos did you see on the streets calling Wole Soyinka a mad man, how many Igbos did you see on the streets carrying placards with the words ''Lagos is no man's land'' written on it? Nairaland is really messing up with your minds and brains, I repeat, life does not end here.
You are oversimplifying the argument here. I do not expect to see Ibos in the SW coming out on the streets to call WS as a mad man- that will be suicidal! Neither have I heard them say Lagos is a no man's land on the street because they know the implications. However Orji Kalu made that pronouncement publicly and I have not seen any Ibo politician or commentator correct his assertion, rather what we have witnessed is a tacit, implicit support from a lot of Ibo people in Newspapers and the social media.
You are Ibo- Do you agree that Lagos is Yorubaland? Please a Yes or No answer and briefly explain why--it is not a trick question
|Politics / Re: National Confab: Why We Won’t Discuss Breaking Up Nigeria By Sen. Femi Okurounmu by Midastouch1: 11:21pm On Oct 26, 2013|
That is false brother.
If you have been reading the discourse on the print and social media and most importantly listened to discussions on the "streets"- my summations are representative of the feelings of Yorubas . I concur that it is not scientific but I frown and disagree at your interpretation of it as elitist? What exactly do you mean?
|Politics / Re: National Confab: Why We Won’t Discuss Breaking Up Nigeria By Sen. Femi Okurounmu by Midastouch1: 11:05pm On Oct 26, 2013|
sCun: That is what people like Desola do not understand, they come here pretending to speak for all Nigerians or people of a particular tribe. Nairaland members isn't even up to 0.5% of Nigeria's population, considering the alternate accounts.
I beg to differ.
While I understand your point that a lot of Ibos and Yorubas live together in peace and even inter-marry but there is a lot of mutual suspicion between both tribes. I am not too sure about the statistics that you have provided but the reality is 3 recent major occurrences have totally changed the equation here: ( This is apart from the historical distortion of the facts of the civil war)
1. The fact that most Ibos supported Patience Jonathan against Wole Soyinka even when they intrinsically knew that he was right in reprimanding her and questioning her excesses - they called him the Old Mad Professor! A man that supported the Biafran cuase during the civil war?
2. The outrageous outburst from Ibos and their leaders during the "deportation" debacle- that was totally unacceptable and stank of hypocrisy considering Ibos had no problems with the "deportation" of Yorubas, Hausas and other ethnic groups from Lagos in the past and the fact that SE states have carried out similar "deportation" exercises.
3.The effrontery by Ibos to refer to Lagos as no mans land is not only insulting but totally disrespectful
|Politics / Re: Let's Have Your Complaints, Suggestions & Enquiries Here by Midastouch1: 10:27pm On Oct 26, 2013|
You can call me any name under the sun- that does not negate the fact that it took my complaint for justice to be done. Like I said earlier, you were not banned when the Yoruba posters were banned yesterday- that is indicative of bias and preferential treatment based on ethnicity.
I can assure you with my hand on my heart without any reservations whatsoever that I will defend my Yoruba Race, Culture both on NL and everywhere else with fire for fire BUT the rules has to apply to all equally!!
|Politics / Re: National Confab: Why We Won’t Discuss Breaking Up Nigeria By Sen. Femi Okurounmu by Midastouch1: 10:17pm On Oct 26, 2013|
Afam4eva: This OKurunmi guy is not serious . How did he come to the conclusion that it's only fringe groups that are calling for Nigeria's dismembering and are these fringe groups not made up of Nigerians. I think this conference maybe bound to fail if there are no go areas.
Ok let me say this. As much as I feel that Afam is a very biased Mod and certainly very tribalistic, I concur with his submissions that having no-go areas is a bit subjective and defeats the purpose of a "National" Conference (NC). Even if Okunrumu and his fellow Committee members term these groups as fringe elements, they still represent components of the Nigerian polity and in a democratic setting have inalienable rights to put forward their case.
I listened to the entire interview and have respect for the Senator, but respectfully it is not his mandate to decide who can and cannot make representations about how they think the future of the Nigerian state should be decided. It might surprise us that the generality of Nigerians might want a "dismembered" Nigeria, however unlikely that might sound, it is imperative the (NC) is all inclusive to gauge the precise barometer of the feelings of the generality of Nigerians.
He expressly stated that the final decisions of the Conference will be put to a referendum, which means that it is the Nigerian populace that will have the last say (?) - the question mark was put there because there was equivocation on the part of the Senator on the role of the National Assembly (NA) in the whole process- the interviewer asked what would happen if the NA rejects the result of the referendum- he did not get a definitive answer to the question.
I am tempted to say the whole process will be a charade and a smokescreen for a higher agenda but I will reserve my comments for now.
|Politics / Re: Let's Have Your Complaints, Suggestions & Enquiries Here by Midastouch1: 8:42pm On Oct 26, 2013|
Why are you putting this up Eze Promoe? Sexkills did his job to ban you for making those comments after I complained because Afam hid your post and failed to ban you when he saw the comments yesterday- do you get me?
Your post explicitly validates my argument that Afam banned Yoruba posters enmasse and failed to do the same with the Ibo posters and I think he should take responsibility for his actions- that is one of the core qualities of a Moderator- taking responsibility
|Politics / Re: Let's Have Your Complaints, Suggestions & Enquiries Here by Midastouch1: 7:03pm On Oct 26, 2013|
sexkillz: You were saying?
I said there should be an acknowledgement of the facts and an accompanying apology- does not necessarily mean the apology should be from you.
There is no need for you to obfuscate what is clearly a display of bias by a Mod.
|Politics / Re: Let's Have Your Complaints, Suggestions & Enquiries Here by Midastouch1: 6:51pm On Oct 26, 2013|
sexkillz: How many times do you want me to explain it to you? And why o why are you demanding an apology from me?
Please carefully go and read my post again, I never demanded an apology from you.
The explanation you gave me was "if they were truly online" then it is unfair. You have access to the logs so you definitely know that he banned Yoruba posters last night but left the Ibo posters till I made the complaint.
|Politics / Re: Let's Have Your Complaints, Suggestions & Enquiries Here by Midastouch1: 6:44pm On Oct 26, 2013|
sexkillz: Sorry, I was accused of bias and I need evidence of that. Is that a problem? Personally, if I can't ban all involved, I'll rather not ban at all, so why am I being accused of that? If you have problems with afam, take it up with him. I offered you explanations but you are still refusing, so take it up with him!
As you will acknowledge, I have made the complaint and Afam has been viewing this thread intermittently for the last hour, why has he not defended himself? You are the Mod responding to the complaints so I expect to get some explanations to my queries.
|Politics / Re: Let's Have Your Complaints, Suggestions & Enquiries Here by Midastouch1: 6:42pm On Oct 26, 2013|
Mama Osisi can you mind your business? you know if it is open season, you will be decimated and you will cry your self to sleep by the time I am done with you, but if we are told that we have to post within a particular set of rules, then those rules have to be equally applied irrespective of the poster's ethinicity.
By the way, did you get a ban on that thread or did Afam forget to ban you as well?
