''At four corners, Enugwu, Unknown Gun Men enforcing the now-suspended but still operational sit-at-home in the southeast, today shot a medical doctor going home from work after doing his night shift.
A truck parked at the same venue had its four tires damaged.
At Umueze close
to ESUT, a middle-aged man was shot dead.
In Eke Agbani and Oriemba Akpugo market, they rained gunshots in the air and inflicted matchet cuts on not less than 5 people while those selling food and other roadside wares had their goods thrown away.
A very popular woman known as
"nwanyi Agbani" who sells cooked rice and ofe aku (banga soup) in Oriemba every morning had her food thrown away.
As a result of the shooting, major markets even in the interior parts of the town like Nkwo Akpugo and afor-inyi market reputed for daily sale of fresh palm wine
closed immediately.
Semblance of calm only returned following the appearance of the Police and the military.
The bigger tragedy here is that we have now become so de-sensitized to this mindless internal harvests of blood and destruction in Ala-Igbo to the point we now see them
as the new normal which we have no choice but to learn to live with.
A shame, isn't it?''
-Charles Ogbu.

A young man who decided to help someone from his village is currently crying for help.👇👇
''Please how do you recover a truck you gave someone on hire purchase in Port Harcourt and the person disappears with it? You don't know where the person lives, You only have his name,
phone number, the truck's registration number, chassis number, and engine number.
Please help! 🙏'' The story continues👇👇
''No guarantor, they didn't sign any agreement, just a verbal agreement.
They are from the same village so he felt he was helping a brother and didn't
consider all those processes necessary.
It turns out that the man has another agenda as he disappeared and stopped coming going to their village''
ME:I have advised the person to go to the nearest Police station. Please always insist on a guarantor and do a background check to

This kidnapping attempt happened in Lekki Lagos last Friday. Beware.
''Pseudo-Police Kidnappers:
A narrow escape!
Take a look at the pictures and watch the video you see below
A friend’s nephew had an ugly scary encounter with some pseudo-policemen at Lekki a few days ago.
Let’s call him SO.
Last Friday night at 11pm, he was on his way home. Having just passed Legacy house, just by Konga house, he was stopped by these men who were donned in some sort of black police attire wearing these police caps that you see in this pix and beaming these
flashlights in the pix at him to stop his car.
As the civil citizen that he felt he was, he stopped thinking it was some sort of Police check that they were conducting.
There was a black car parked by the side of the road that had some of their comrades by it. Two of these

Someone brought my attention this👇👇
I have visited my 120 years old grandmother and given her some money when I was leaving and she told me she doesn't need money again. That she can no longer buy nor sell at her age, so I should give the money to
the younger ones who need it.
I also have a former governor friend whom I worked with as a green horn journalist. He was governor from 1999-2007. Not too long ago, I saw him. After check in, he was left seated by the corner of the Murtala Mohammed international airport awaiting
for his flight. No one even recognized him again, not even passengers from his State where he was governor, and as I walked up to him and greeted him, then asked if he wanted any assistance, he stretched forth his trembling hands to hold me and simply said, "Thank you for even
