In the animal kingdom python is a one of the giants in the reptile caste, bold, strong and intelligent. Hunters who dares to kill python are A class hunters, because putting the venom aside the swiftness with which the python strangulate it's prey is another thing to fear.
If we see a drummer that would beat the drum for a gathering of python holding a feast..... Who dares to watch their dance?

The Nigerian state in her beauty has got people of diverse ethnicity, language, culture and beliefs. Like many people I have argued that our marriage was forced in 1914 but the forced matrimony gave birth to glorified diversity but lacking a concretely reinforced unity.
The south Eastern part of Nigeria is one our pivotal unit even with our failing economy system, Our Abba brothers are as important to the Nigerian economy as oxygen is to human......
Ask yourself this sincere question, have you ever gone a day without a contact with a creation of Igbo people in Nigeria.

Nnmadi kanu came with a crusade to revive Biafra nation wrapped with a cessation foil. Self determination is lawful but it becomes unlawful when such group crusading self determination starts having their own security outfits, laying claims to the ownership of weapons of mass destruction, giving sit at home orders and disrupting free movement of citizens who are going about their lawful businesses.
Apart from the Nnmadi kanu having dual citizenship, there are so many unmanned border that could take him out of the country whenever the jig is down.

The United Nations global terrorist index ranked the Fulani herdsmen as the 3rd deadliest terror group after IS and Boko Haram, even though we know statistics like this are furnished with conspiracy, true or not true we all saw the mayhem the Fulani herdsmen unleashed on this nation.  Our Defence Headquarter didn't declare them (Fulani herdsmen) as terrorists, what am I saying we even witnessed how the accidental servant Gov. Nasir El-Rufai was paying them, no operation Tiger smile, Lion Hunt, or Bull raid in those regions affected by the Fulani herdsmen one of the many nepotism of this country.

It was not wrong to have pronounced IPOB a terrorist group owing to their recent activities, that was how Boko Haram metamorphosed from a parrot propagating an idea to a vampire bat sucking our bloods endlessly.
I hope our south eastern brothers would be guided by history and God forbid avert a repeat of the civil war, and those big wigs within the Ndigbo who are backing Nnmadi kanu should travel north east and ask the kanuri community how they feel now after initially supporting the anti western education campaign of the Boko Haram group.

Dialogue is a strong weapon and am sure the crop of bureaucrat in the present regime led by PMB knows this, OBJ advised it but for his actions in ODI and Biam it looks like OBJ is prophet preaching what he would never practice.
A holistic look into the current situation of the Nigerian state would show to us that a round table dialogue is needed not only with IPOB or south east but with every region of the nation as each part is with her peculiar agitation, even some people would argue not all this agitations are sincere, and that those championing the cause are not doing so in the interest of the masses but for a stable and viable econo-socio-political condition we need dialogue as soon as possible.

The operatives of Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested five suspects for stealing 28 iron ballasts meant for rail lines in some parts of Lagos metropolis.

The five suspects, who said they are scrap metal dealers, were intercepted inside a Vanagon bus by the operatives at 1:15 a.m on Friday in Agege. The suspects include: Hameed Atairu (25), Akeem Muritala (23), Lawal Muritala (25), Tunde Olaunji (27) and the driver of the bus, Sarafa Ishola (38).

The suspects in their statements to the police stated that an official of the Nigerian Railway Corporation sold the iron to them. However, preliminary investigations by the police revealed that the iron ballast were stolen from where they were packed for use.

Further investigations revealed that the iron ballast were meant for the basement of rail lines. The suspects, three of whom are ex- convicts, explained that they raised N35,000 among themselves to pay for the iron ballast.

 

A batch of trains rolled off the production line of China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC) Nanjing Puzhen Co., Ltd., on Sept. 12, and will be shipped to the Port of Lagos in Nigeria a month later, news site thepaper.cn reported

These 10 standard-gauge trains were ordered by Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) in May this year. They have adopted Chinese standards, and will be the fastest trains running in Africa, with a design speed of 160 km/h.

Operation speed could be as high as 150 km/h. Gbenga Ashafa, chairman of the Nigerian Senate Committee on Land Transport, believes that the Chinese trains will definitely improve the railway development of the country.  


A 65-year-old hunter, Clement Etila Ekele, has been arrested for killing his 45-year-old younger brother, Monday Ekele, in Kogi State. According to SunNews, the tragic incident happened on July 16, 2017, at Ikaka village in Ibaji LGA of Kogi State.

On the ill-fated day, Monday, the deceased went to the farm about 5.00am. Three hours later, about 8.00am, Clement also went to the farm with his double barrel gun. At the farm, he saw a monkey on a tree and shot it. The monkey fell down.

When he ran to the foot of the tree to pick up the monkey, Clement said that what he saw was the dead body of his brother. According to Clement: “I hunt for monkeys. I have never had any misunderstanding with my younger brother.

On that day, he went to the farm before me. Later I also went to the farm with my gun. There, I saw a monkey on the tree. I shot it, but when I wanted to carry the dead monkey, it changed into my younger brother.

I didn’t know what came over me; I couldn’t understand myself. I ran back to the village and I started drinking beer and rejoicing. Later, I told my friend Anthony that I shot my younger brother dead.

The gods I worship failed me because I refused to perform certain sacrificial rites. They became angry with me; I have been a hunter for years, I never shot anybody. Why must I kill my own brother? We live together, our houses are opposite each other."

 

Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba must be considered responsible for the obviously illicit choice to expand the arrangement of South African Airways (SAA) board administrator Dudu Myeni and for the billions in misfortunes and the subsidizing emergency that has been permitted to proceed at SAA, the DA said on Saturday.

The DA welcomed the intervention of the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC), which confirmed the DA's view that Gigaba’s decision to extend Myeni’s term as chairwoman of the SAA board was illegitimate, DA spokesman Alf Lees said.

"Accordingly, we are also of the belief that Ms Myeni is technically no longer the chair of the board and that any board decisions taken since the 1st of September 2017 must be viewed as irregular and unenforceable," he said.

Gigaba had failed to take the robust action required to save SAA and stop the ongoing losses and consequent taxpayer bailouts.

SAA was a complete shambles and Gigaba’s failure to remove one of the main obstacles to progress at the airline showed that SAA was clearly not a priority for him.

The intervention of the CIPC in Myeni's extended appointment would be useful to Parliament's finance standing committee in dealing with its resolution that requested Gigaba to review his decision to extend the appointment and to provide the basis on which he made the decision.

"When all is said and done, Minister Gigaba must be held accountable for the evidently illegal decision to extend the appointment of Ms Myeni as the SAA board chair and, more importantly, for the billions in losses as well as that funding crisis that has been allowed to continue at SAA," Lees said.
