We have been inundated with requests for updates about the seizure in Canada on May 30 of a luxury private jet bought by former oil minister Dan Etete with some of the alleged proceeds of the notorious $1.3 billion OPL245 oil deal. A THREAD:
In case you missed it, here's the original story which we co-published with our partners @PremiumTimesng:…
We have been trying to get an update for you, the public, from #Nigeria’s asset recovery team, represented by UK PR firm @montfortlondon. Unfortunately they, and others in the team, have chosen to ignore our enquiries entirely. They aren’t even returning calls.

I was working as a hotel maid during the summer to get some money together for Uni. It was menial stuff but it did pay quite well. On Tuesday's I was a waitress in the cafe in the mornings then went round cleaning rooms after breakfast when people started going out for the day.
The hotel was posh and I had to dress up in a proper French maid uniform.

This particular Tuesday I went up to a table with a family of four. The mum and dad looked fairly normal the younger boy about 15 looked quite nice, short brown hair, fit body.
However, the older boy about 18 looked gorgeous. He was tall muscly smooth black hair and a nice face eyes you could stare into and get lost in for days. I smiled at them "Hello, I'm Oge. I will be your waitress this morning do you know what you are going to order?"

"Ungh, ungh, uuuuungh!"

Miriam didn't know whether to laugh or cry, so she just kept quiet, looking up into awkward, twisted face of the boy grunting above her. Oh my god, he looks like he's having a stroke. She sighed.
The boy looked down at her, panting, a stupid grin on his face. Well, Miriam thought it was stupid. "Yeah, you liked that, didn't you?"

Miriam had enough social grace to give a forced smile. Maybe she could convince him to finish her off, anyway.
Not as good as cumming from a cock, but better than nothing. "Yeah, that was fantastic, Emmy. You want to . . . ." Her partner pulled out of her and was already off the bed before she could finish the sentence. Screaming now became a viable option, alongside laughing or crying.

👇THREAD: The data on household food consumption recently released by @Nigerianstat is GREAT! We computed some estimates & insights from the dataset @sgyemikale (1/6)

(NB: Data & graphs below are estimates we computed from @Nigerianstat data and do not reflect official data)
In 2019, spending on food in #Nigeria was approximately USD 59 billion. Consumers in the geopolitical zones along the #GulfofGuinea account for almost half of national food expenditures...2/6 #foodsystems #fromfarmtotable #urbanization #structuraltransformation #hiddenmiddle
The #foodeconomy (household food expenditures) grew 5.2% per year over 2009-10 to 2019-20 in nominal terms. But the share of food in household spending declined from 65 to 57%...3/6 #structuraltransformation #urbanization #foodsystems #fromfarmtotable #hiddenmiddle #Nigeria

Let me start this thread with definitions, because context is really important these days when we address topical issues.

Women are vulnerable.

Women are constantly "exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed physically or emotionally" because we are women.
Last year, I was explaining to a male friend the reason why I don't take certain risks and why I simply refuse to put myself in certain positions he will put himself in without a thought.

He wasn't understanding.

In truth, he didn't get it at all
So I told him that just by virtue of being a woman, we are extremely vulnerable and constantly targeted.

He said "really?!!", I said "sure".

He said "how!?", I just decided to share some examples.

Because sometimes, it's important to put these things in perspective.

Establishment Psychopathy: a selection of evidence setting out some of the ways in which colonial violence & structural racism continue to privilege our “ruling class”... [thread of threads] 🧐✊🌹🇪🇺 #ColonialViolence #BritishEmpire #ReparationsNow #BlackLivesMatter Image
The magnificent #BlackLivesMatter protests are proof of structural racism around the world... This thread ⬇️ shows how the UK Establishment still benefits from slave money, and why it will ALWAYS resist a proper discussion of #history. 😖✊🌹🇪🇺 #Colston #Slavery #RhodesMustFall
Colonial wrongdoing was often rewarded with wealth and a peerage… Our ludicrous system means that this chap #Trenchard ⬇️ gets to make our laws in part because his grandfather liked to burn villages in #Nigeria. 😧✊🌹🇪🇺🇳🇬 #SystemChange #ToriesOut #COVID19

Watch these three videos, and spot the common trend in each of them.

Ahmadu Bello in 1964 -
Pastor Telebran in 2020 -
Unnamed touts in Ladipo -
The common thread in all of them is this - they are not complaining that the Igbos are stealing from them.

They are not complaining that the Igbos are cheating them.

No, they are complaining that the Igbos are "taking over", legally.
In other words, the Igbo man did the work, and bought the land, or earned the position, that you have turned around to complain about.

There are many things I find interesting about the timing of the emergence of the recent videos.

Apparently today @PoliceNG will set up a panel to probe Madam First Lady's ADC, a chap called Usman Shugaba.

They will also discipline him and the five others, and then ensure that they are not returned to her excellency's vicinity.
Then we can all go home happily, while another set of policemen will be sent to Madam First Lady to ensure her every whim is fulfilled.

Problem not solved.

Vintage #Nigeria.
You see, the fact that up to 80% of our policemen are handbags to our low quality elite ensures that those policemen exist to serve the whims and caprices of said elite.…

Agonies Of Communities In The War Front: Brutalized And Traumatized By Army & Insurgents

When the military is deployed to protect a community from terrorist attacks, the people are happy and offer them needed support to succeed in their assignment.…
When the soldiers are redeployed for operational reasons, the armed groups come almost immediately and punish the community for assisting the military, several villagers in insurgency ravaged communities in the Northeast say.
A @HumAngle_ investigation revealed that communities in Borno, Katsina, Yobe and Zamfara states are increasingly under pressure by both the @HQNigerianArmy and terrorists to provide information to support their respective interests.

Attention Nigerians.
Upward trend in Canadian work permit scams in #Nigeria.
Please,you all should be careful.
Here are some of the methods being used by these wicked and fraudulent agents in Nigeria and Canada.
1. Pay when your visa is out.
Just give us your resume and passport. No Contract,No LMIA.They will even get you biometrics Appointment and even ask you to go for medicals.This might look real but there is no application submitted to IRCC.
2.I live in Canada approach.
You tend to believe him/her because he/she resides in Canada.He/she promised to get you a job from #canada.Pay just $5000 and all will be settled.100% scam.

Money does not stop nonsense. Values do.

When you purchase peace of mind, efficiency or quality; when you use money to escape Nigeria, it's because of the excellence and results that the other party inherently supplies. 🧵
Your money didn't buy those things. It simply gave you access to better healthcare & education, good craftsmanship, an orderly society and quality goods & services.
From a systemic point of view, nothing in Nigeria stops nonsense. Despite deep seated historical issues, China has the production capacity to stop nonsense. Even New Zealand's government can do same. It beat an epidemic.

21 years of Democracy in Nigeria
The journey began in 1960,but truncated by men in khaki. Subsequently we had two interrupted republics, not until 1999 when the 4th republic kicked off. May 29th was, & now June the 12th is Democracy day in Nigeria. #DemocracyDayNigeria #Nigeria
While some are in secured mansions at choice reserves dinning with assorted dishes procured with dividends of democracy, others are in constant fear, eating their hearts in lamentation. #June12th
Thus democracy day for us, should be a sobering moment. This day should remind us how the government has fallen short of the endless possibility democracy offers and the citizens movement to institutionalise good governance has weakened over time.

It is quite easy for us as a people at this time to become complacent with #COVID__19 . But even if we all do, I pray @NCDCgov doesn’t, as it’s obviously not uhuru, uhuru isn’t even in sight yet!

I was at a supermarket yesterday when I heard 3 young men discussing about;
“how the corona self no last”,
“the thing don waka, government just dey lie give us”.
Little wonder the decline in perceived importance of the @NCDCgov’s updates recently.
There’s so much work for the @NCDCgov @NOA_Nigeria Media outfits and the @NigeriaGov to do. It’s time to diversify into producing and airing docu-series, and put a face, a life to these “mere figures”.
Where are the scenes from active isolation centres?

This powerful photo gives a stark warning to #parents over the dangers of #choking. This small child suffocated & died after choking on a #peanut!

{SHARE to create awareness!} A coronal section of the lungs of a small child who died of #suffocation after choking on a #peanut.
2\ Some kids, like 7-year-old Precise Tucker, have even #choked on #doritos chips & died in their mothers' arms while playing a prank!…
3\ Every parent will be familiar with the time spent cutting & slicing their kid's food to ensure they can eat with no issues.

No matter how hard you try, there's always a chance their wandering hands will pick up something they shouldn't & potentially put them in danger.⁣

cw: rape

Men who rape don’t care where they rape - sacred space or secular space.

The rape and murder of 22-year-old Vera Uwaila Omozuwa in church has sparked outrage across #Nigeria. And is a reminder that women are safe nowhere.

Osai Ojigho, the director for Amnesty International in Nigeria, said the horrific incident “resonates because even in the spaces that women and girls should be safest from gender-based violence, the home, the schools and now places of worship, it is getting there”.
The rape and brutal way Uwa was murdered was one of several cases in the past week which have led to street protests, an online petition signed by thousands and the Twitter hashtag #WeAreTired #Nigeria…

#AfricanNeuroscience [Thread]

Ever wondered what #Neuroscience research looks like in #Africa? For 3 years, we have been working on profiling the neuroscience research landscape in the continent’s 54 countries. Very excited to share our latest work:…

Why is this important?
#Africa has real potential in #Neuroscience, but needs help to rise from its current position! To do this, we need accurate data that reflects the heterogeneity of research across the continent's 54 countries.

Such data is lacking, as previous estimates about research outputs from #Africa are mostly inaccurate, partly because it is difficult to tell whether the research was, in fact, conducted within Africa or outside the continent in collaboration with #Africanscientists

Of George Floyd 'Judging The Fluidity' of America's Hypocrisy on Racism, And The Nigerian COVID19 Scam-demic.
The killer of George Floyd would not have done to a dog what he did to a fellow man. And the fact that he was a Police Officer underscores the hypocrisy of the American Dream in so far as her relationship with her coloured citizens is concerned particularly......
....... when juxtaposed with the many extra judicial killings of, and brutalizing of harmless Blacks by White Cops in America. Under Donald Trump America seems to have chosen the resurgence of Anti Black sentiments and tendencies, but are you surprised?
