MOVE BITCH, GET OUT THE WAY!

Watch our democracy in action here
On the third of november 2008 on Muhri Okunola Street, victoria Island Lagos, the traffic was chaotic. A young lady (Uzoma Okere) driving home from work didn't move her vehicle out of the way of a millitary convoy on time, resulting severe beatings by armed Nigerian Navy men. The convoy consisted of Rear Admiral Harry Arogundade's personal Navy saloon car and his pilot truck, consisting of 6 armed bodyguards. The body guards in the process physically beat up several Price WaterHouse Coopers staff and destroyed cameras that were filming the event as it unfolded. The video clip was recorded from the PricewaterHouseCoopers office on a personal camera.

BIG SHAME ON REAR ADMIRAL HARRY AROGUNDADE! PRAY, TELL US, ON WHAT HOLY MISSION WERE YOU OFF TO? TO EAT FRIED RICE AND CHICKEN? TO SLEEP OFF IN ANOTHER BORING MEETING? WHAT COULD HAVE POSSIBLY BEEN SO BLOODY IMPORTANT?PERHAPS YOU HAVE SUCCEEDED IN ARRESTING ALL THOSE MILITANTS?

it is this kind of things that makes me scared whenever i visit naija ,imagine such lawlessness in daylight in a society of humans ,anyways it's only in Nigeria that we make much ado about nothing ,what comes to mind is the image of our president appealing to all Nigerian nationals to come home from where they have peace of mind to a country where you get harassed and beaten by not only the robbers and the cons but also the very police and the military that are there to secure the citizens and the country.

I read about this on nigeriaworld.com and it absolutely despicable that a country that touts democracy can actually be party to such nonsense. Gov. Fashola of Lagos has agreed to provide free legal help to the lady and the sad part, the Naval team set up to conduct an investigation is actually in support of Arogundade. It is so sad, Nigeria needs help, but its like we keep taking so many steps back...something has to chage, it really does...
On a side note, I saw you are involved in a charity similar to mine, maybe when I am operational we can partner up or something...

Saw a coment in the Sun where it was claimmed that "Baba Go Slow" had "ordered an investigation" hopefully it will not be an EFCC style washout with no one brought to book..

From the link given in danny bagucci's comment:

". . . the victim who was identified as the daughter of the Sergeant-At-Arms of the National Assembly, Col. Emmanuel Okere (Rtd)."

If true, it almost certainly guarantees some form of justice, and will leave us to wonder what the outcome might have been if she hadn't any leverage.

Danny Bagucci said...

@Patrice -- Valid point -- That particular bit of info might have actually emboldened the yound lady a little.. But just like someone I was talking to about this said - even if its selective justice, let something happen first and then we can talk about expanding the scope to cover all incidents like these..

God help Nigeria.

Hopefully this will spotlight the brutality and injustice of our nation and encourage all of us to not just do better, but expect better.
