PHOTOS: OCCUPY NIGERIA DAY 2 – Lagos Main Roads And Streets Are Deserted - A Shadow of Itself…

Marwa Garden, Alausa...
The blogger went around Lagos today as Occupy Nigeria Protests enter its second day. Main roads and streets of Lagos metropolitan city known for its ever hustling and bustling were more of shadows of itself….

The Highways were deserted while youths converted main roads and streets into a “Hardcore” football Pitch…

A fellow protester who travelled all the way from Ibadan to Lagos this morning told the blogger that Lagos-Ibadan Expressway was shut down by angry youths. The gentleman told me he parted with close to N25,000 before he could get to Lagos as there were several road blocks mounted by these angry youths who were also extorting money from unsuspecting travelers…

EXCLUSIVE PICS: OCCUPY NIGERIA DAY 2 – Fuji Maestro Pasuma Mobbed, Singer Lamide Mobbed, Olu-maintain Mobbed, Eldee Mobbed at Ojota

The Massive Crowd of Ojota "Agbero Boiz" Besieged Pasuma (Pasuma is circled in Black wearing a Purple T-Shirt...
Some Nigerian musicians, comedians and Nollywood actresses and actors have been providing support at Occupy Nigeria Carnival (Oh! Sorry, Protest) at Gani Fawehinmi Memorial Park, Ojota, Lagos since the protest started yesterday.

Pasuma was around today. He addresses the crowd in Yoruba dialect. And he spoke very well.

But I never knew Pasuma is “Area Baba” even though I have heard he is an “Omo Aiye” until this afternoon. Pasuma was mobbed by a huge crowd of “agbero boiz” the moment he was stepping of out the protest venuw.

It took the intervention of his “area boiz” who came with him to the protest venue and his braveness before he was let loose. Pasuma almost exchanged blows with some of the “area boiz” who were manhandling him.

An “Okada” man appears from nowhere and whisked Pasuma out of the near violent scene.

Enjoy the Pics below:
The Massive Crowd of Ojota "Agbero Boiz" Besieged Pasuma (Pasuma is circled in Black)...They Boiz expected him to drop money for them
 (Pasuma is circled in Black wearing a Purple T-Shirt)...He almost punched some of the "Area Boiz") who tried to manhandle him
But the boiz wont let him go until he drop something (Money)...
This "Okada" man appeared from nowhere, Pasuma Boiz exchanged few punches with Ojota area boiz...Ojota Boiz were saying they won't allow him take the bike...
The Pushing and Punching were on-going, but Pasuma Boiz had the upper hand...they made sure Pasuma climb the "Okada" which whisked him out of the near violent scene...

9ice was also mobbed and taxed to drop "owo landlord" (Money)...Negotiation was seen here on-going with  some Ojota "Area Boiz"

9ice dropped something and was let go...9ice used his car to rescued Singer Lamide who was also mobbed and molested...The Boiz seized his cap and he was pushed and tossed around...

Eldee ran for cover  within the areae circled in black...The blogger couldn't follow them...Those boiz were devil daring....

Shame Of The Human Safaris: Tourists Pay For Jungle Drive Which Treats Primitive Tribe Like Zoo Animals


One of the world's most primitive tribes is being humiliated on a daily basis - by tourists who pay to go on human safaris and treat them like animals in a zoo. Hundreds of visitors to the remote Andaman Islands, north of the Equator in the Indian Ocean, queue up each day at dawn to drive through a jungle reserve set aside for the Jarawa tribe.

They then toss scraps of food to the half-naked natives, who only started making contact with the outside world in the late 1990s, and command them to dance.

The 403 tribe members should, in theory, be protected by strict laws on the Indian-run Island. A sign at the gate to the 'enclosure' states: 'Don’t give any eatables to the Jarawas.
'Don’t indulge in photography, videography. Otherwise you will be liable for legal action ­including seizure of camera.' But tourists can pay touts £350 to take part in the convoy, with local police taking a £200 cut and turning a blind eye to the exploitation.

Visitors are regularly seen throwing bananas and ­biscuits to tribe's people waiting at the side of the track. Similar scenes are seen across Britain as people feed animals in a zoo. Photojournalist Gethin Chamberlain uncovered the tour, which is not advertised but sold under the pretext of a visit to local caves, in the islands' capital Port Blair. He joined a tour run by Rajesh Vyas who said the tours were 'very popular' with the British.
Vyas said: 'It will cost 15,000 rupees (£182) to buy off the police and about the same for a car, driver, gifts for the Jarawa, biscuits, snacks. It is guaranteed.'
Police on the islands are told to arrest anyone caught taking pictures of tribe members. But officers have been seen ­pocketing a £200 bribe.

He then ordered a group of ­topless girls to dance for tourists. A video shows the youngsters refusing at first but swaying after he said: 'I gave you food.'
The Jarawa lived detached from the modern world until 1998, when one of them needed hospital treatment - and told the rest of the tribe about life away from the reserve. They now regularly visit local towns and settlements.

Polish Military Prosecutor Shot Himself After News Conference On Probe Into Mystery Air Crash That Killed Country's President

A Polish military prosecutor has shot himself in the head after cutting short a news conference in his office, officials and media reports say.

Col Mikolaj Przybyl was defending a military investigation into media leaks related to the air crash that killed the Polish president in 2010.

He asked reporters to leave so that he could take "a break". Please give me a five-minute break, I need to rest', he said.

Upon hearing a loud thud, the reporters returned to find him on the floor with a pool of blood around his head.

Mr Przybyl, who was in his office in Poznan, western Poland, is now in hospital in stable condition. His life is not in danger, according to hospital officials.

Boko Haram, Yesterday Attacked Christ Apostolic Church In Yola, Adamawa State Killing 11 Worshippers


YOLA – Yesterday, Jan 09, 2012 - Gunmen, suspected to be members of Boko Haram, yesterday, attacked Christ Apostolic Church in Yola, Adamawa State capital, killing 11 worshippers. Another member died in hospital from bullet wounds.

News of the shooting made residents, mostly non-indigenes, to flee their homes in the night and seek refuge at the General Jalo Army Barracks, Yola, for fear of being killed.


Meanwhile, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday, campaigned for the re-election of Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State despite the nationwide strike called by labour over the recent increase in petrol price. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo and his former deputy, Atiku Abubakar led the PDP supporters during the party’s grand finale campaign in Yola, where Nyako was presented to the people for their support in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.

It was learnt that the unknown gunmen, who rode on motorcycles, entered the church and opened fire on the worshippers. 11 members reportedly died on the spot and several others sustained bullet wounds.

One of the wounded church members reportedly died later, bringing the number of those who died to 12, even as five others are in critical conditions at the Specialist Hospital, Yola.

Last Friday, 12 mourners were killed in Mubi, the commercial nerve centre of the state by suspected members of  Boko Haram sect.

Those killed were allegedly holding a meeting on how to raise money to convey home the remains of three of their relatives earlier shot dead by members of the sect on Thursday before they were attacked.

Police in the state said they were investigating the incidents.
