‘Traditional rulers have been found to help bandits kill their own people but disregard that, Nastura Shariff, is the real enemy’

About a week ago, a video and several photos of armed bandits riding into a town in Katsina surfaced on social media. They not only arrived to a very frightened people who resorted to cheers to escape their wrath, the bandits mingled freely; individually in some cases on their motor cycles without any sign of discomposure. What that video and [...]

A case for hate speech and social media bills

The disapproval of the social media and hate speech bills by a lot of Nigerians is quite understandable. The ignominy with which the Buhari administration has repeatedly made a mockery of the rule of law has made it almost impossible to trust him. But that is really as far as it goes. If you have any other excuse for being [...]

    Why have Sowore’s sureties not come forward?

Why have Sowore’s sureties not come forward?

There was an air of certitude to the DSS' call for Omoyele Sowore's sureties to come and pick him up. The Buhari administration has never hidden its intention to hold onto him and one ordinarily would expect his lawyers, former PDP youth leader and activist, Deji Adeyanju and others that went to pick him up to begrudgingly be told so.

Osinbajo: Buhari can’t keep friends… he’s making enemies

Xenophobia: Buhari has lost us respect in the eyes of the world

Until at least the last 48 hours, there were videos online of Nigerians being killed in South Africa almost on a daily basis. The only crime this men along with other African nationals committed was to be in South Africa and be prosperous enough to become a threat.

$9bn judgment: A breakdown of Buhari and Malami’s incompetence and their pathetic solution

Expecting Abubakar Malami,the Attorney-General of the federation to satisfactorily defend the Buhari administration's handling of the Process and Industrial Development Limited situation is no different from giving him a chance to explain how Section 174 of the constitution allows him to disobey court orders-he won't make any sense. President Buhari was sworn into office on May 29th 2015 and precisely 3 [...]
