Ibrahim Magu and The Ikoyi Flats Whistleblower

The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, told a global forum in Austria a scandalous lie that could discredit the whistleblower policy which is currently helping the anti-graft agency recover troves of public funds from corrupt Nigerian officials. While trying to oversell his prowess at the 7th Conference

The Nigerian Army and The Failed Medical Outreach In The South East

The botched medical outreach of the Nigerian Army in the South East is one more example of the quality of thinking that misguides the Nigerian Army. It’s incredible that the top brass decided that a military-manned mobile clinic had a real prospect of success in Igboland and that this, of all times, was

Buhari Writes Paul and Peter: The Unity of Psquare Is Non-Negotiable

Dear Paul and Peter,   I have just been informed that one of you unilaterally announced the ‘split’ of the crisis-prone Psquare. That’s an act of self-determination. It is treasonable and worthy of classification as terrorism.   I recall that your late mother paid me a visit at my Daura home a couple of years ago. We shared dinner

So Buhari Loves The Muslims of Myanmar?

President Buhari’s notable achievement at the 72nd United Nations General Assembly in New York was doing a good job of reading out a high-minded speech that contradicted his worldview as if it were a poem from his heart.   His posturing was too convincing for a man that is seldom credited with a talent for

The Nigerian Army Is A Terrorist Organization

Last Friday, the Defence Headquarters drew itself to its full ethical height and declared the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ‘’a militant terrorist organization’’. It managed to achieve this fantastic feat in pot-calling-kettle-black by avoiding the mirror. If the Nigerian Pentagon had looked in the mirror, it would have seen the

Buhari, Buratai and The Python Panacea

The ongoing destructive ‘Python Dance’ of the Nigerian troops in the South East states of Nigeria is easily the most futile conceivable strategy for defeating the growing Biafra consciousness in Igboland. It’s a thought police witch-hunt operation. And it is destined to end in a shameful retreat like all brawny

Mama Taraba: The Other Aisha In Buhari’s Life

This is bad news: the malcontents in the State House that can’t abide President Muhammadu Buhari are not all rats. A member of his cabinet also wants to see his back.   Barely two weeks after the rodents attempted to evict him from office, Aisha Al-Hassan, Buhari’s minister of women affairs, suggested

The Distance Between Houston and Makurdi

Houston is light years away from Makurdi. The American city and Nigerian town are separated by spatial and civilizational distances. They are also separated by the sensitivity of the disaster response mechanisms obtainable in their respective climes. The historic flooding of Houston overwhelmed the city’s infrastructure, displaced people from 100, 000 homes,

Are You The Nigerian Police Or Buhari’s Militia?

More often than not, the Nigerian Police runs riot like a malicious militia whenever the politics of the president of Nigeria faces a viable challenge in the form of a street protest. The police rush out to crush the demonstration.  They assault the protesters. They brutalize them on an order of
