So just early this morning, a message come into my inbox and the sender requested i relay it on my blog. At the first glance I wanted to neglect it, but something stirred my curiosity so I read through the message to the end and found out that it quite informative as it will help solve the on going incessant killings by armed herdsmen.
The message reads below:
Dear friends, there’s a very important piece of history I’ll like to share with you which concerns you.
On December 1, 1955, a middle-aged “negro woman” in America, Mrs. Rosa Parks, refused to stand up for a young white man who just entered the segregated bus she was riding in. If she did, she would have had to stand all through the journey.
At that time, the bus was segregated in most parts of America: white people sit in front rows and black people sit from the back. Blacks would normally pay fare to the driver in the front, then step out of the bus and go through the back door to find a place in an already tight area at the back. If the allocated spaces for blacks are filled, all other blacks joining the bus would have to stand even when the more than half of the bus spaces reserved for whites are empty! Such was the injustice and humiliation that black Americans faced then.
For refusing to stand up for the young white man, Mrs Rosa Parks was immediately arrested, scheduled for arraignment on Monday December 5. Then, the Rev. Martin Luther King and his NAACP comrades stepped in. They called out the people. They spoke about the sad realities of their existence, the terror of an unjust system and barbaric treatments in the hands of fellow Americans.
In addition to speaking out, these Black Americans decided to take action to protest that injustice by boycotting the segregated buses. The boycott began December 6, 1955.
Dear friends, here is the crux of the matter: Black Americans took action! For 1 year and 16 days, they trekked to and from work or boarded improvised pooled taxis, everyday, until the US supreme courts declared segregation unconstitutional!
During the struggle, someone offered one tired black woman a lift in his car, but she declined, saying, “l ain’t trekking for myself, but for my children and grandchildren!”
So, dear friends, whenever we don’t take action and we feel unobligated, unconcerned,* we should simply remember the black Americans and those women. Without them, the freedom that US enjoys today wouldn’t have happened, or happened too late.Obama may not have become the President of US.
So, the questions before all of us now are: Are we slaves to the Fulani people? Are you ready to trek for yourself and your generation yet unborn as the black Americans did? Are we willing to do our own little bit for the cause of good governance and security of our people? Are we ready to act? If today, it is Benue, Kaduna, Taraba, Enugu, etc, which state or community is next? We have complained and grumbled enough. Now is the time to take action.
Dear friends, there’s a general consensus that with effect from FEBRUARY 2018, there should be A TOTAL BOYCOTT OF FULANI COW MEAT, including suya, kanda (skin), etc. We should discipline our appetite and make this sacrifice now to put an end to the killing of farmers because of cows. 🐂🐂🐂
We can get protein from chicken, goat meat, fish, pork, etc. How can we continue to patronise their business and then they turn around to kill our people and destroy our communities? Enough is enough.

Lagos tenant uses Landlord’s apartment to dupe house appliance vendors of N50 million
Hey peepz, I have a gist tho I don’t know if it’s true or not..But I will say it Sha. I was just walking on the street 2receive fresh air when I saw a couple. d man was telling his wife about an incident. I kukuma slowed down an walked behind them to hear d full gist.
It was more like a scam story. A certain man walked up to a Landlord in our area and requested to rent his apartment for 2 months, with the excuse that he was traveling to Canada and just came to Lagos for the Visa Processing.. They agreed on 150K.
The man paid and took ownership of the apartment.He then went out to Vendors in town and negotiated to buy expensive items on lease. With installment payment plans.. He was said to have collected home appliance worth N50,000,000 from various vendors.
He then took them all to the apartment one by one to build trust. At least once they know he lives there, they can easily come around and pack their stuffs if he defaults, these people didn’t know what would hit them was going to be deadlier than Tsunami.
As agreed with the Landlord, the man packed out even earlier than expected… Left with all the items, of which he had not finished the payment..and the Landlord was so happy to have struck a better deal He immediately rented out the apartment to another family.
One by one, the creditors began to come in and same story was relieved to them.. Some fainted, some threatened hell fire …. To cut the long story short, Baba Ijebu was arrested alongside the new tenant.. You know Naija now… #POLICE no wan hear wuen
They were only saved after a Landlord intervened. He is a legal practitioner and took up the case. But sincerely speaking. I wonder how some people feel at rest knowing fully well their victims would suffer. I guess it all centers on lack of conscience. This is bad #dojon
It was more like a scam story. 🙆 A certain man walked up to a Landlord in our area and requested to rent his apartment for 2 months, with the excuse that he was traveling to Canada 🍁 and just came to Lagos for the Visa Processing.. They agreed on 150K.

“The driver had picked some other passengers along the way, and they had all paid and dropped off at their various bus stops.
