Ms Norah Okafor shares a frightening experience in her own words.
''At exactly 1:36am,I was alerted by my brother that there are armed robbers at my gate trying to make their way into the compound. Because it was an electric fence, I didn't bother enough because I felt they can't
make their way in. Alas, I was wrong. 2am on the dot they made their way into the compound. They came prepared. Over 25 of them with two hilux buses, masked and dressed in black upon black. A huge one climbed the fence, with a plier and immediately cut off a few of the wires,
jumped into the compound and with an axe, broke the gate key open and zoom they made their first entry into my apartment. As a nude sleeper, while they tried to make their way into the compound, I found something to wear while my brothers and I were thinking of a way of escape.
The worst case scenario for me is that they will rape or take the only valuable available (a car key) so I prepared my mind.
The next thing I realized was that about 7 of them were already in my room with shouts of "lie down, face down, on the light, where's your phone, where's
your car key, where's this and that.. Confused me. Seeing over 25 hefty men with different kinds of guns, meehn, e don be, be that.I handed the phone to them with the key, before then, they have already taken hold of my laptop. I turned to be sure these were armed robbers,
and they asked for my passwords to all the devices collected with masking tape to identify each. Still in shock, I heard someone destroying everything in the kitchen, my room, that of my brothers and all the drawers. I was still asking myself what's happening? They asked me to
stand and follow them downstairs, lo and beyond, they unmasked themselves, hmmmm..are these kind criminals? I asked. All my neighbours were already going through the same pain as I.
They have already given my brothers a beating of their lives, carried my neighbour downstairs and
tried unlocking all the cars in the compound. And after searching all the phones and laptops, three of their men walked in, lo and behold, it was EFCC. What? I screamed. Shut up, was the next thing l heard and when they couldn't open my phone, they asked me to, I did and after
a while I just asked, please where is your office so I can come pick up my things on my way to work, they asked me what I do and I said "journalist", asked my neighbour he said "lawyer", the other "doctor". They looked at me, handed over the phones and said
" we just wasted our time".
These fools, spent over one hour molesting and destroying things in this compound. I feel so pained and embarrassed right now.
Is this how EFCC operate? How did we get here? Who is the informant? I am just confused right now.
Thank God my mum isn't here...''

Emma Eregarnoma invited his mother, Mrs Oke Eregarnoma, to his house on Caroline Street, Okuokoko after he persuaded her that he had a surprise package for her.
On getting there, she said she saw Image
Emma in an unusual joyous mood, after he welcomed her in. He then increased the volume of his musical gadgets. Oke alleged that her son suddenly locked the door and made moves to strangle and pluck off her eyes, just as she screamed for help, adding that no one heard her due to
the loud music.
She said after fighting with his son for some minutes she regained her strength and ran outside for help, while neighbours came to her rescue.
Mrs Oke Eregarnoma, while narrating her ordeal to journalists on a hospital bed where she was recuperating, recalled that

If this story doesn't make you to shed tears of joy, nothing else will.
''l was at a mentor's office few days ago, a self made man, top notch Electrical Engineer, one of the best in the country.
It's been a while I saw him, so I decided to check on him and say hi.
To his office
I was a regular visitor, so the secretary was like "Uncle Yinka where is my cake? I saw the pictures of the Twins on Facebook.
"I will bring it when next I come. However is egbon around? I asked.
"Yes but he has one visitor," she replied.
I won't take his time I just want to
tell him I have submitted the proposals he asked me to give one permanent secretary at the secretariat.
I stepped into the inner office and saw him crying and laughing at the same time, a young boy in NYSC uniform was sitting in front of him.
The young man was almost in tears

''Pantami Accepted FUTO Fraudfessorship Before it Was Offered!
By Farooq Kperogi
I woke up a while ago to these memos from FUTO. The appointment letter that offered Pantami a fraudfessorship is dated August 20, 2021 BUT the acceptance letter is dated March 30, 2021!
In other words, Pantami accepted a fraudfessorship that hadn't even been formally offered, and then FUTO retroactively offered it.😂😂
At this rate, are we even sure that FUTO's Department of Cybersecurity isn't actually the Department of Cyberfraud? Even at that, Pantami won't
be qualified to be a professor of practice in cyberfraud because he obviously can't even successfully pull off a simple fraud.
Yesterday, a young cyber sleuth by the name of Dr. Abdulaziz Tijjani discovered that Pantami edited his Researchgate profile to lie that he was an

''I was a member of Deeper Life Bible Church from 1981 - 2005.
It was a period of holiness or the highway.
Thankfully, most, or nearly all of my core societal values, dignity and critical views on leadership (till today) were formed, nurtured, instilled in me as a young boy
while at Deeper Life Bible Church.
Albeit, Felix Ojobor and I never stopped asking tough questions on the church's doctrines which we saw, then, as personal and cultural influences on how members were expected to act, behave and live their lives as Christians.
We were humble
devoted members but rebels.
We asked why the church will not allow us watch TV, and see programs like NTA's "Science is Discovery" Wildlives" "Now for Mathematics" shown week days at 5:30 p.m. and many other educational programs.
Yes, NTA was that good in the 80s.

I got this from a friend, please read it and pick out vital life lessons.
''I was at home that day when my mum called me to run an errand for her. (I had no idea what was coming)
She handed some money over to me. It was for a tin of tomatoes. I looked at the money and indeed it
was for just one tin.
“Just one?” I thought to my self
I knew I could easily get that on the street, so I wasn’t bordered.
But she wasn’t done...
She went on to describe the particular shop(at the market) to get this, how to get there and what the woman looked like.
“Why travel all the way to the market? All for just a tin of tomatoes?” I thought to my self.
Like I said, I had no idea what was coming. She really made sure I understood the instruction perfectly. As if that wasn’t enough, she instructed me to be home soon( it was getting late

''History and empirical evidence have taught us that if you give Miyetti Allah or their cohorts 5,000 sqm, they will use it as a springboard to continue their undisguised conquest and empire building agenda. Ask the people of Southern Kaduna, Plateau, Taraba and Benue states who
today have lost thousands of communities, with hundreds of thousands of their people in refugee camps in the last six years alone.
If the DTSG must invest in livestock farming, let it be strictly state-owned and operated by trained indigenes and investors operating strictly on
business model. It should never be given to an alien ethnic group with a historic track record of violence and spurious claims to the ownership of other people’s ancestral lands. No sane person deliberately invites a virus into his home.
