''On my way back to Port Harcourt sometime in February after my annual leave, I was accosted by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
You needed to see how scary this guys were with their AK47 and uncountable magazines which was enough
intimidation already.
I flagged my identity and the institution I work for but that wouldn't deter them.
They tagged the car I bought with my sweat a 'stolen vehicle' which is a cliche or mantra for them.
They entered my car and asked me to get to their office.

At their office,
I was asked to write down my monthly and annual income which I stated. one of them insisted he must go through my phone even without my permission. Brethren I had to give them my phone and this dude forced me to open my WhatsApp which I locked with my finger print and my text
messages too. I was asked to remove my clothing. They asked me to bring 200k; that was my bail out. I had only 15k on me that very day which I pleaded with them to take and let me go but they refused. They threatened to transfer me to their headquarters.

Being smart, I asked
them to permit me to go withdraw money which they obliged to but insisted I drop all my gadgets at their office.
Moving out from there, I saw this officer in the picture below and waved at their vehicle and i explained my ordeal with men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS)
to him. He asked me to wait at a particular point for him. I did lose hope of him returning but he did actually. When he returned, I joined their military van to the SARS office.
Arriving at the SARS office and their seeing the company I had, they changed their tongues to say
they only asked me to go get the original copies of my vehicle papers.
I was released and my gadgets given back to me. While Captain drove off with the first van and I was coming behind, these SARS guys followed me behind not knowing a second van was behind. They withdrew when
they saw the van. Captain and his men gave me company until I was in a safe area.
One even threatened that he has marked my vehicle and that he will surely come back for me.
I have never met Captain before until that day.
He was my God sent.
I was held by these guys from 2pm
till about 9pm when Captain aided my freedom.
There are crazy stories out there as regarding the men of SARS.
Scary and breathtaking stories have flooded the internet in this season.
God bless you Captain Gbawa. God bless Nig Army. God bless Nigeria
(Help me make him popular )

NB:The Army officer in the picture is Captain Gbawa,that saved the young man from the criminal SARS Operatives
Captain G Bawa.

Some of the reasons the youths are risking their lives to protest:👇
''*IFEOMA ABUGU, 20, a young lady who had just graduated and was in NYSC, was arrested in place of her fiancee at his residence in Lokogoma, Abuja. Ifeoma was sexually assaulted and later died in SARS custody
a day after she was arrested. Justice has not prevailed.
*GODGIFT FERGUSON EKERETE ,24 ,TONY ORUAMA ,21, HARRY ATARIA, 26, were arrested during a raid and then killed in detention that same day on 3 July 2008. They were falsely accused of being armed robbers and cultists.
The police officers responsible are still freely roaming.

How a young man's life changed in one instant:

Henry Suubi from a poor home reports for his first day at Makerere University, the main University in Uganda and one of the biggest in Africa. He arrives carrying his luggage to his attached hall of residence, while other kids are
being dropped off.Upon Henry's uncool arrival at campus another cool kid takes his photo and then uploads it on social media to mock this village-belly to earn likes and comments. Well the photo goes viral!

That's how Henry Suubi met God:
A Ugandan senior journalist employed at BBC commits to run a campaign on twitter to change Henry's life. From then up to now Henry is still receiving gifts. These are some of them
*First he is invited to the chancellor’s office and the chancellor promises him any parental help

''In a Billionaire's house:
The brother visits. Goes to the kitchen. Meets the Cook. Demands for food or serves himself with the fried chicken in the pot. Picks a Glass and pours himself his choice wine. Takes some salad and continues munching the chicken and Salad with wine 🍷.
Sister in law enters the kitchen and sees him.
"Ha Emmy Bekee, when did you enter?"
Hugs him and takes some of the chicken. He picks another glass 🍸 and pours her wine 🍷.
They move to the sitting room and start gossiping about his brother and other things.
In a poor man's house:😂
Brother visits and gets hungry. Takes a lap of chicken in the kitchen and eats.
Sister in law comes in and and frowns her face.
Warns him not to try such nonsense again. Tells him to leave her kitchen and never to "defile" her pot again.
The next day

''When Facebook was starting out, they needed a painter to spray paint the walls of their new head office. Dave Choe got the job.
When the mural was finished, Sean Parker who was president of Facebook at the time gave Choe the option of taking cash or stock options. At the time
, Facebook was only a year old and only open to college and high school students. There was no "like" button, revenue from advertising and no hype of a $5 billion dollar IPO.
Instead of taking cash, Choe took a chance and opted for the stock options.
It was a risky decision
. As Choe told Stern, at that time “Facebook was a joke.” There was no guarantee that the business would amount to anything and his shares could wind up worthless.
Choe was added on as an "adviser" and received 0.1 to 0.25 percent of the company.
Shortly after Facebook went

Who Did We Offend?

''When your ECONOMIC council decides to boycott an ECONOMIC conference organized by your CBN in the heat of impending ECONOMIC crisis... do you call yourself a leader or what?

It was reported yesterday that $1 was N372, up from about N350 showing that
there is a 2016-style crisis galloping towards us. The NNPC Chief says if the present $31 price of crude plummets down to $22, “Nigeria will be out of business.”
So out goes all the election-time propaganda of having diversified the economy and all that shit. Reality has set in
and the truth is out. Propaganda can put you in power but it cannot sustain governance.

Meanwhile, see your three point agenda:
Security - Your expired service chiefs are quarreling either with themselves or with your Chief of Staff
Economy - Your economic team are on such

Why do men cheat? Inbox message 2:
culled from Agunze Azuka Onwuka

Azuka, am sending this piece via inbox because i don't want to comment on your wall and I trust you will protect my id.

I'm 46 and have being married for 12 years, my wife is 39. I never planned to be unfaithful
before marriage. I earn much more than my wife and provide for my wife and children and try to be available at home as much as possible. I don't stay out late. I am not the bossy type. I help out in house chores as much as I can.

But the biggest problem in our marriage is the
number 4 point you raised - disrespect. My wife seem to derive some joy in disrespecting me. Rather than see me as a partner, she seems me as competitor, and an inferior one for that that. So at the least of opportunities, she beliefs she need to put me down. Ones there is a
