Dumb Move : The Nigerian Army intercepts four vehicles conveying Boko Haram’s smoked fish and surprisingly burnt them all

-1566732653250

Whoever gave the order to burn down all those smoked fishes, is only not a smart person, but no fit to occupy a decision taking position as the one he/she currently occupies. Why will you burn it when 80% of the people in that locality and region as a whole, are all malnourished and lavishing in abject poverty? 

Wouldn’t this fishes have been a very good meal addition if it was given to the IDP camp? Were the fishes proven to be poisoned? Were they going bad? Non of these was happening in that huge pile of fish, Instead it was a huge commercial goods for the Boko Haram sect to generate income to run their well structured terrorist group. No kind of test was done on this fishes to certify them safe or unsafe for consumption which will thereby be a reason to have them burnt. But this uniform men acted all unwise.

While you read the post below that explains in detail this dumb Move, I will like to say on behalf of my readers ( All over the world), that the Nigerian Army has once again disappointed the heck out of Nigerians and other people fighting poverty in the world with this move. Just know This. A whole lot of fishes have been wasted by them. Dumb and Dumber 👌👍

Credit to from @channelstelevision  The Nigerian Army has intercepted and burnt down four vehicles conveying smoked fish allegedly belonging to Boko Haram insurgents on the outskirt of Maiduguri, Borno State.

Having discovered that they use proceeds from the sale of fish to sustain their activities, Theatre Commander of the Operation Lafiya Dole, Major-General Olusegun Adeniyi, said one of the military’s strategies for fighting the insurgents is to cripple their economy.

Can you just imagine????

#Roommates, the world’s largest rainforest is currently ablaze with no end in sight. Brazil’s Amazon Rainforest is reportedly burning at the highest rate since the National Institute for Space Research began tracking it in 2013. Now, scientists worry this could be a major setback in the fight against climate change.

According to @cnn, the Amazon is often referred to as the earth’s lungs because it is responsible for the production of 20% of the oxygen in the earth’s atmosphere. There have been almost 730,000 fires in Brazil this year, with more than half in the Amazon region.

Drug War: N5billion worth of tramadol gets confiscated in Lagos

instablog9ja-1566083029326

The war against drugs has offically made its way to all strata of the functional Nigerian society, from consumption back up to the importation/infiltration point, and I am here for it.

Contrary to what many have  been saying about the government agency turning a blind eyes when these drugs are being imported, they are however making the biggest drug burst for our society.

A truck-load of the banned drug, tramadol and others illicit drugs worth N5 billion have been intercepted by the Nigerian Customs Service in Lagos.

If a N5million drug is confiscated, that simple means that this is a very big business for a group of people. And if they can buy a quantity this much, then they can convince the government  to release this one too.

The spokesman for the service, Joseph Attah, said the smugglers believed that festive period was a time of merriment and less vigilance, “but our officers intercepted the illicit drugs as the smugglers attempted to move it from Lagos to other parts of the country’’.

It is always going to be an easy dispersion whenever the goods find their way into the country. And this no exception.

On Aug. 13, at about 2 a.m, operatives of the Headquarters Strike Force Zone A intercepted a truck laden with dreaded codeine, tramadol and other controlled pain killers along Maryland, Ikeja road.

The shocking number of people who have lost their minds to these illicit drugs, will only make you understand the extent  this fight will have to go.

The team leader of the force, Assist. Comptroller of Customs Usman Yahya, deepened preliminary investigation that led to the discovery of a warehouse along Oshodi-Mile 2 road.

Of course it is a huge business. The information on the endless supply and use will give you the height of solid structure this business has.

The warehouse was stocked with tramadol, codeine and other unregistered pharmaceutical products without the National Agency for Foods Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) number,” Attah said.

Attah said the Comptroller-General of Customs (CGC), Col. Hameed Ali (rtd), had already directed a thorough investigation with a view to bringing all those connected to the drugs to justice.

Good Job gentle men.

Over 240 guests suffer food posioning at Ex-Philippines First Lady’s 90th birthday party

mayornaijablog-1562185586753

We all know that the reason for most gatherings been for the food. But  if the food is poisonous? At events food helps you stay away from unnecessary chitchat, helps you stay away from excessive talking, and gives you the peace that is mostly hard to find.

Now you can have that suspicion at every street party and every low key party, but you  can’t expect that at a former first lady’s party.

According to News making rounds no  fewer than 240 people became sick before being rushed to hospital on Wednesday for alleged food poisoning at a birthday party for former Philippine First Lady, Imelda Marcos, authorities said.

The guests, who suffered from dizziness, vomiting and diarrhoea, were taken to 10 different hospitals in the city of Pasig near Manila, according to Bryan Wong, head of the city’s emergency response office.

The party, which held on Tuesday at a sports complex in Pasig to celebrate Marcos a day after she turned 90, was attended by 2,500 guests.

Marcos, the widow of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, was seen shaking hands with some of the guests at the party before the people became sick.

According to the Philippine National Red Cross, guests at her party got ill after eating from food packs which contained boiled egg, chicken adobo stew with potatoes and rice.

Former senator Ferdinand Marcos Junior, the son of Imelda, has issued a public apology, saying in his statement: “Organizers are determining the cause of the food poisoning and are prepared to cooperate with the authorities.

I apologize. We will help everyone until they are completely well.

NAFDAC seals up warehouse manufacturing unsafe commercial honey in Abuja

images

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has sealed a manufacturing and packaging warehouse where honey was  being  poorly and unhygienically packaged in  Nigeria’s federal capital city Abuja.

In a statement by Prof. Moji Adeyeye, NAFDAC’s Director-General, the action was based on information on social media which indicated that the product, produced in Durumi, Abuja was adulterated. “NAFDAC officials clamped down on the facility in Abuja where honey was being packaged. “We acted based on information (video) of honey purchased from a certain supermarket in Abuja, circulated on social media by a customer alleging that the product was adulterated. “The product was produced by Upon the Rock Church of God, Durumi, Abuja,’’ Adeyeye said.

She said that tests on the product, which was initially registered with NAFDAC, confirmed that the product had become unwholesome and unfit for consumption and for that reason, had his licensed revoked.

Despite the fact that NAFDAC registers business, it also revokes it if the business mangers is trying to deceive the general public and poison them for his own personal greed. We know Sars and EFCC are constantly on the look out for the indivisuals who are acting suspicious on social media, but who would have thought that NAFDAC equally looks out for these things on social media.

I’m social on pressed with them for going after this factory. Ladies and gentlemen, you can now freely report poisonous foods making rounds in the society. Good to know NAFDAC… 👏👏👏

Digusting: Door Dash Delivery man caught on camera sipping from a drink he came to deliver.

no thumb

Aso seen on  #theshaderoom,

when I say this delivery man was bold, he was BOLD bold! I’m sure many of you are familiar with all kinds of food delivery services that bring whatever your craving at the moment right to your doorstep. However, this delivery definitely left a sour taste in these customer’s mouths.

According to @fox40news, a doorbell camera captured a delivery man from #DoorDash sipping from the milkshake he was sent to deliver! The Malhotras family were having a regular night when #RishabMalhotra, a 14-year-old boy, ordered a milkshake from #ColdStone through delivery service #DoorDash.

The delivery came, but what the delivery man didn’t know was he was being recorded thanks to a camera at the front door. Unfortunately, Rishab didn’t see the footage at the moment and ended up drinking the Oreo milkshake. His dad on the other hand, was looking for something else the following day and stumbled across the shocking—read more at theshaderoom.com (📹: @fox40news) – #obyorijiblog

But on a more realistic note, why don’t they completely seal the drink? What exactly was the Delivery guy looking to achieve by taking that small unsatisfying sip from the cup of a customer?

Was he angry with the customer, or the company? Could he be so hungry that the sip saved his life? These are all the questions that I have for this inappropriate behaviour.

Someone will carry out anow act for a reason, so what is this man’s reason? Could he be looking to spread a certain illness? This is disturbing for me .

Extinction: Thousands of Lions, Leopards and Elephants killed by humans summed up.

-1544977485525

@jemu_mwenda – A LIE IN:

KILL TO SAVE
Am only a few years old,but one of the injustices i have found with us humans,is when we place money in the hands of people to get a right to kill an animal,Not for anything else but to satisfy our ego.With all the greed and rapacity with men,it’s channel of benefiting off the blood of innocent beings,Drowned in prejudice and ego the killers carry away the “skulls” don’t assume I don’t know they call it trophy,to hang in their walls that reminds them of their commitment to increase the extinction of species.

The members of a species that are strong,healthy and carry strong genetic traits are targeted,Loads of cash paid and trigger pulled to bring them down,to the hunting firms and it’s affiliates they regard the returns support conservation precisely the communities,something I utterly disagree.Hunting for these reasons is one of the ways to prove mans crookedness and his inability to correctly handle what he was mandated to protect.

The only justice for sport-hunting would be if the quarry itself received the cash and sighed to die to save others,which isn’t possible.Their rights and justice being held in the hands of those who claim to own them.In the 19ths century there where hundreds of rhinos roaming and they thought careful introduction of such a sport would be fun,animals would just be shot at and their ferocity due to the pain of bullets and arrows gave them titles as the “big five”

Now today I and my colleagues wake up everyday to watching these last two Rhinos known of their kind.Ashamedly even as of now this vice of hunting still continues,Having witnessed the dark side of extinction I wish such people could swallow their ego and stop killing a being that can never defend itself.When you pay that money and pull that trigger,you undermine the rights of their existence,apparently their justice will be spoken in ways unheard by us! And it will be fatal.
May the Trophies on their wall hang to ashame and always remind them that they are murderers.
The greatest shame on a man/woman is when one has to kill a voiceless being to quench their ego,how would a human dare to prove ego to an animal literary.

Nigerian fishermen, the most under appreciated emergency response team.

image

On the food chain of occupation in our society (depending on the society in question), fishermen are not always given the high and significant spots they have very well come to deserve, due to their peacefully subtle, availability and constant provisions of a very significant part of our food nutrient as humans. While they don’t make mllions and billions at every trip they make like the tech and other businessmen, they save many lives with their delicious varieties of sea foods. It is no longer news that these fishermen do whatever it takes for seafood to arrive at various markets at different parts of  the world.

Some  of these important men and women  who are into the seafood industry in the developed countries do concentrate on only easily providing their customers and communities with fresh seafood, due to the fact that a very structured emergency responds team on/in water has been created by the strata of the Governemnt they have come to trust and rely on over time. But what about their counterparts and colleagues in the NIGERIA, who have been called upon by the same line of aquatic duty, but over the years have not been doing only that to the country/community? I’m not even going to go into the extent of rescue these men carry out on a daily basis that go unnoticed or unappreciated by the people and government.

The Nigerian system is said to be failing its people every single day in so many ways, with the elected few that are so called leaders, only knowing how to steal the country money to better their lives and the lives of their families for years  from generation to generation. Nobody cares about the commoners in this part of the world. People basically fend for themselves from birth to death living in abject poverty and never coming hope for a better tomorrow.

They go into politics when they want to grab the country money for their own family, and better their lives,  It has been known to be the final and quickest  way to reach the Country’s treasure and make a fast money to Opress the poor and buy up the remaining police men that the earlier thieves have left for us. Néed I remind you that the policemen of this country have all been employed as personal body guards to the high and influential men and women of this country, and their family members, that the country’s commoners/masses are left with only a few to guard them, or even extort them when their help is needed. The politicians, a certain class of clergy men, who have made it to Forbes from this country, ELLE you that everybody is out to get the masses.

But them again, While the package of payment made for Nigerian policemen is ridiculous and largely disgusting, which explains their need to constantly collect bribes to put food on the table of their family members, they are offered more by the individual employing them, then the uniform and force. With countless problems weighing down on the pride and people of this nation, no one is even considering the safety of sea users. The Nigerian body meant to do that, NIMASA is said to have no concern In your safety, as they squander the money cut out for these things and no one seems to call anyone to book around here, leaving sea safety and rescue for these fishermen who only came out of their homes to catch some fishes and sell to put food on the table of their households. These men have had to undertake unbelievable tasks of helping crash, suicide, and occupational hazard victims in this country without a single appreciated directed their way. When these same politicians give a pencil to the masses, they come along with camera/press crew to the pictures and make videos so that the world will appreciate them, and let them continue staying on that spot to continue to stealing money from the country’s treasure.

These fishermen are said to know  not only the terrains of these unclean water body this country is centered in, but the spiritual side of these waters. They are men and women whose significance to the masses of this country have gone underestimated for decades. They physically care and come to the aid of masses than all government of this country put together have ever done.I am going to single handedly begin the need to have a ‘fishermen’s day‘ here in this Country called NIGERIA, I just wonder which day suits these brave men and women in the seafood industry enough to be allocated to them. For you all my esteemed readers, I am open to suggestions please. Thank you and looking to hear from you.
