1. Had a conversation with a young man about the protests. He complained how bad the police are, how bad politicians are, how bad PMB is. How the entire system is corrupt, how he had benefited nothing from Nigeria. How he started working early in life to put himself through
2. secondary school & polytechnic. Before secondary school who was a houseboy to a big man. When he got admission, it became a part time job until he noticed the big man used to hide money his truck drivers return to him daily somewhere. He said he was 'smart enough' to pilfer
3. enough cash to buy 2 okadas over time. After which he quit without the big man ever knowing. He said his brother rode one while he rented the other out. Over time, 2 bikes became 3. He made money which he put some in his father's farming business. After secondary school he
4. started a part time job with Jago milk in Ogun state. He said the pay wasn't much but the 'deals done' brought in so much cash, more cash than even the core staff earn. He said how they would make sachets/tins of milk disappear & resell to retail outlets in Ogun & Lagos. He
5. said in a year, he had over 2m in his account but his salary as a casual worker wasn't more than 30k a month. Then he got admission into the polytechnic. How ladies who saw him with cash did all they could to 'tie him' down. One went as far as saying she was pregnant for him.
6. How he abandoned her & the baby. He said in this Nigeria you have to be 'smart to survive'. This man stole as a houseboy from his boss & called it being sharp. He kept stealing from a company where he worked & saw himself as being sharp. Got a lady pregnant, abandoned her to
7. fend for herself & kid but the only corrupt people in Nigeria are politicians & police.

This is exactly how all of us are; everyone is bad/corrupt except me. Pmb is now bad to Atiku & sons, Anenih & Sarakis meanwhile they are notorious crooks. Welcome to Nigeria, world HQ
8. of hypocrisy.

1. Madam are you insinuating that government has hand in the prison break, burning of police stations, NDDC building & all other forms of destruction ongoing in Benin? There are things one would expect from children on twitter who live for clout; retweets/likes & not from someone
2. who has been in government, worked extensively locally & internationally & recently ran for office. So many times you have helped people retweet falsehood, at times even composed the tweets yourself & it makes one wonder at your end game. For those who have forgotten, you
3. started out under Gen. Obasanjo as head Budget Monitoring & Price Intelligence Unit before your double stint as minister, at no time have you mentioned how Obasanjo contributed to the mess we have found ourselves today. In fact, you are either silent, evasive or hostile when

A list of most deadly & corrupt SARS formations in Nigeria & what they are notorious for, sent to me by a police officer who will remain anonymous.
1. a. BENIN SARS: Among the police, Benin SARS are known as very deadly/mean/brutal, corrupt & have no regards human rights.
2. If you're traveling from Lagos to the SE, the moment you get to Edo state, Benin SARS are the first unit of Police to welcome you. They're the first SARS unit that introduced the usage of POS. These guys rob & frame
innocent young boys traveling from Lagos to other parts of
3. the country. They're also known to have taken the lives of many innocent people who refused to give them money. They are also the first SARS that started the illegal act of checking people's phones, laptops & account balance. Benin SARS have killed so many & labeled them

1. Let me take us, #EndSARS protesters down memory lane; 20 October 2011 Qaddafis regime came to an end as he was killed in Sirte, Libya. The people danced & celebrated his fall! An end to an oppression or so they thought. For 5 years many militia groups fought for control of
2. Sirte, it eventually fell to ISIS who held it until August 2016 when government recaptured it. From Qaddafis fall till today, more than 60% of those who celebrated the fall & death of Qaddafi have died either in conflict or from starvation. Some have been raped, maimed or in
3. jail. Those alive are wishing they never rose against Qaddafi by proxy destroying their country. Saddam Hussein was killed 30 December 2006 in Kadhimiya district of Baghdad, Iraq. People danced & celebrated! The revolution had worked but over 500 people have died in Kadhimiya

1. Lagos-Ibadan express way is on lockdown. Commuters/transporters are stuck in traffic. Hoodlums are banging on cars so owners wind down to settle them. Some of the truckers are carrying livestock & perishables. Goods will get spoilt, livestock will die & come night time some
2. will be robbed. A woman was called that her kid had fallen seriously sick while writing exams, she sent her son to go get the kid at about 2pm. They got back home by 1am. 14yr old kids condition was terrible, mum administered first aid but nothing worked so she rushed her to a
3. nearby clinic. Her daughter has been admitted. Thank God she didn't die. A woman will enter labor & will find it hard to get to hospital. Someone will suffer cardiac arrest & will need immediate medical attention. Many of us know these things but are scared to say them because

1. what do you say about such a person? There isn't a single lawyer, soldier etc in Nigeria who hasn't been called at one time to come help for someone who committed NO CRIME! Does it mean crimes aren't being committed? NO! Does it mean Yahoo boys & other criminals
2. aren't hiding under the umbrella of protesters to show their anger at police? Of course! Who doesn't know that when protests start, other groups with an agenda will join in? This is becoming like the people saying 'all lives matter' when people say BLM, like trying to ignore Image
3. the fact that blacks are being profiled as crooks cos of skin color. We have a police profiling people cos of age, appearance etc. Can we do a check of all SARS/police detention centers all over Nigeria so we see if everyone woke up one morning to gang up against police? Image
