Mr. Cliffmanuel Akoma And His Careers


Tonygists: How did your career unfold?

Cliffmanuel: Well, truth be told, my career is just getting under way. I've been in the industry for years now. So far, the key has been making the right choices in my work, coupled with alot of initiative. As soon as I finished school, I secured an internship at a thriving production company. Since then, I've continued to find crew work on larger production, as well as shooting my own  films on the side. It is all lending itself to the greater scheme of being able to direct my film.



Tonygists: What has been your personal key to success?


Cliffmanuel: The film industry can be intimidating. It's a big and broad field with a lot of people vying for the same piece of the pie. One of my lecturers in school could not stress enough that it takes a "bulldog tenacity" to be successful in the industry. I agree with that, but it all starts with your own creativity and passion. I have always been a storyteller, and I have a passion to reach people with those stories and make films that matter.


Tonygists: How has your experience in theater contributed to your success in film and video?

Cliffmanuel: I was actually really surprised at the differences between telling a story on stage and telling a story on film or video. Theater and film have separate approaches to reaching the viewer's imagination. From the performance standpoint, however, I was able to try a lot of things as a stage actor in front of several different types of audiences.

 When directing actors now, I like to keep it loose and allow for improvisation. I owe that attitude to my experiences in theater.



Tonygists: What do you enjoy most about your job, your career?

Cliffmanuel: I've always been completely intrigued by the concept of capturing moving images, not to mention how fun it is entertaining people.

 Make 'em laugh, cry, or even angry, there's just something magical about it. I get to meet and work with people who just have this monstrous amount of creativity and energy, and it is contagious. Most of all, there is absolutely nothing like seeing an idea born in your head becoming something you can share with your family, friends, and the world. And they last forever.


Tonygists: Who were the biggest inspirations for your career?


Cliffmanuel: I can't really think of anyone that I'm necessarily patterning myself after, but I have to admit that like some others my age, I decided that I wanted to make films for the rest of my life after watching Pulp Fiction. Tarantino definitely left an impression on me. Martin Scorcese's movies have their own particular intense style. As far as I'm concerned, Wes Anderson is one of the most inventive and brilliant storytellers out there right now. Spike Jonze made the jump from directing music videos to features, quite successfully I might add. I draw inspiration from innumerable directors by specifically watching the direction in their movies. The more films you watch, the better understanding you have of the medium. For for nollywood film I will mention Afam Okereke, for his direction in Billionaires Club.


Tonygists: You're currently working on your direction for an upcoming movie Alicia after being off set for a whole year. How important is this to you, personally, and to your career? How did it move from concept to reality?


Cliffmanuel: Until you're actually shooting the picture, it's all concept. The idea started in my head, swam around up there for about a year, and ended up on paper a short while later. After that there are rewrites of rewrites and more rewrites, then it's all about trying to get others to help you get the thing made, whether by craft or with finances.
As far as how important this project is to myself, it's huge! All of my stories mean a lot to me on a personal level. I want my stories to mean something to others as well, which is one of the main reasons it is important to my career. Nobody wants to make a feature that someone else is not going to want to watch.

Nollywood film called Alicia



The Actual Work

Tonygists: What exactly do you do? What are your key responsibilities?

Cliffmanuel: That's all depends on which hat I'm wearing! I've directed lot films source locations for filming, casting, selecting or composing music, and editing.

However, if you work in a crew on a feature film, it's different. Each person on the set is almost like part of a greater organism, and the director is the brain. My job begin at the conception of the story and ended once the final editing of the footage is done. I had complete creative control, from choosing
I've been a Director's Assistant, which is almost like being the boss' personal PA. It involves scheduling and facilitation, and generally reminding the director that there is a world going on outside the set.

Recently, I was an Assistant Director (AD) for a couple days on another film in Spain. I was responsible for directing extras (background) on a busy street scene. Job description: "Keep all background together between takes, and be sure they all move on cue." What I really felt like was a shepherd! People were moving all over the place between set-ups, running off to the restroom without telling anyone, and sometimes completely missing their cues. It's not so bad; you just have to be able to shout louder than a megaphone at times.


Tonygists: Describe a typical day of work for you.

Cliffmanuel: There is no such thing as a typical day on a film set!


Tonygists: Collaboration with your colleagues? How have your professional collaborations benefited your career?

Cliffmanuel: It is essential for all departments on a production to create a team dynamic and collaborate. If even one aspect of the product you make is faulty, it can throw off the atmosphere you're trying to create completely. The better people work together, the better the final result will be.
For me, I have been fortunate in my fledgling career to have met and worked with great many people with superior talents in their respective fields. Without delving into name-dropping, I can safely say that because I have been co-operative and friendly with colleagues in all facets of the productions I have worked on, I have become exposed to a world of future collaboration potential with people whose talent and experience go beyond my comprehension. That goes for actors, actresses, cinematographers, production and costume designers, and so on. It is an incredibly exciting notion.


Tonygists: What are some common myths about your profession?

Cliffmanuel: The glamour. Movie premieres, award shows, magazine spreads, it's very wonderful and magical and has NEXT TO NOTHING to do with the film industry. If you go into it thinking it's going to be all wine and roses, you will be infinitely disappointed. We work long days, eat catered but temperamental food, and things can go frustratingly wrong all the time. There is a lot of pressure to make your day, and people are known to bicker. You can take the strenuous nature two ways: you can let it cave you in, or you can laugh through it and look forward to the end of the picture, when all the hard work has paid off. I choose the latter.


Education Information & Advice


Tonygists: What is your degree in? What did you like and dislike about your film and video education?

Cliffmanuel: I was certified at the Enugu State University of Science and Technology and  and took a further step to Bestwood film school in South Africa. I received a lot of great filmmaking theory, film history, industry lecturers and, of course, a lot of hands-on production. In this time, I made three short films, produced one commercial, and almost drowned in the Pacific one fateful afternoon. What I really enjoyed about the school was the wealth of technical information: understanding and measuring light intensity, photo composition, storyboarding, audio levels, film stock, and so on. Schooling didn't change my perception of how to make films, it just became a platform on which I could test my ability and truly find out if this type of thing was for me. By the time it was finished, I was more excited about film than when I had gotten there in the first place.
If there was anything I disliked, I would have to say that almost nothing can prepare you for being on the job in film. When you are a student making a student film, you have all the ambition and zeal in the world, and I was convinced that I was going to make the greatest movie in history.


Tonygists:  You instantly compare yourself and your style to an established Hollywood filmmaker and set your expectations a bit high.

Cliffmanuel:  Personally, with no budget and no professional actors and a very small crew, I felt my projects did not live up to what I had hoped. I can still look back and be proud of what I did with what I had, but one must remember the large difference between making a film for grades as opposed to making a film for profit points.
In any career, the best way to get a feel for the field you are in is to get out there and learn hands-on. Nothing could have prepared me for this career better than living as an office intern, and then making the jump to the set. I was exposed to both production and principal photography in "real life". Now, I feel confident enough to get out there and run my own set, because I know how a set operates.


Tonygists: How can prospective art students assess their skill and aptitude for film and video?


Cliffmanuel: I think it's natural. Some people have it in them from a young age, through performing and entertaining, or having a natural ability to tell a story. A lot of people test their interest in the genre and play around with little experimental films, ones that often don't have a narrative or are completely unconventional. I have some friends whose primary interest does not lie in film and video, but they are keen on helping me with my own films. I think someone with an aptitude for filmmaking just knows it. It's not quite as simple as having a good singing voice and deciding you want to be a rock star (I ruled that one out some time ago). It's just knowing that you have something to say in a particular way and knowing that out there, someone will enjoy it. It seems now, more than ever, there are festivals and demonstrations featuring every possible type of movie there is to see.


Tonygists: Must a film and video professional also be a gifted artist? What are the specialties within the field?


Cliffmanuel: Anyone with creativity can find a happy home in the film and video industry. People who enjoy building, sculpting, carpentry and painting can find plenty of work in set design and decorating. Folks with an eye for fashion and costuming can design and shop for shows. Production designers, who by the way have one of the most difficult but rewarding jobs in the industry, are simply people with a strong eye for detail and color. They capture the writer and director's vision and create the atmosphere of the entire movie before an inch of film is shot. Composers and musicians are called upon to score the project, as music is crucial to add the perfect touch when called upon. Animators, despite a sometimes long and arduous road to a finished product, are finding new ways to dazzle audiences in alternative environments and worlds.


Tonygists: What factors should prospective students consider when choosing an art school?
Are there any different considerations for those who know that they want to specialize in film and video?


Cliffmanuel: Research, and lots of it. It is always best to test the temperature of the water before jumping in. There are a lot of specialized training centers out there, you just have to know what it is you want from your training. If you just want to study film and video for fun, there are several schools that offer evening courses in continuing education, or semester programs at community college. Of course, if television broadcasting or film is your calling, there are three and four year degree programs available at  universities
And some film schools


Job Information & Advice


Tonygists: Who are three of the most renowned film and video professionals in the world right now?
How did they get to the top of the profession?



Cliffmanuel: That's a tough question to answer. It all depends on what department of the industry you are talking about. Steven Spielberg, for all his success, could be considered one of the most respected and lauded directors in the world. I'm sure that if he wanted to make a movie about people blowing their noses, people would back him because he's Steven Spielberg. He started out like anyone else, making movies as a kid, and keeping that passion right through to adulthood. I may not like a lot of his films, but I respect him for what he is: a great director. With Jeffery Katzenburg and David Geffen, Spielberg has created something of a small empire. In nollywood there are a lot of good directors also.

Tonygists: What will be the benefits of being part of ur forthcoming movie "Alicia"

Cliffmanuel: Like you said earlier, coming out after one year of break, I have strategies so much and want to make a hit, I think Alicia will be the best film I have ever done, I am coming through another dimension now, so it will be so helpful for any one who will be part of the job. The audition is coming up on 29th June 2019

Why I Chopped Off 11-year-old Boy's Right Hand - 61-year-old Suspect Confesses

Why I Chopped Off 11-year-old Boy's Right Hand - 61-year-old Suspect Confesses

The suspect alleged that he saw the victim around his fish pond and thought that he came to steal his fish, that was why he brought out the cutlass and attacked him.
Jeremiah Obrifor
 
 
A 61- year- old fish pond owner, Jeremiah Obrifor,  arrested by operatives of Lagos state Police Command for allegedly cutting the right hand of an 11-year- old boy, has given reasons for his action.

”It was not the boy’s hand that I targeted. It was the fishing hook that I targeted so that he would not succeed in taking the fish in his hook, but the devil which must have been sent by people from my village who envy me out of hatred and jealousy because I am a successful man made me to miss the target just to put me in this trouble.

‘’Let me give you a little background of my life before the devil struck. I used to buy baby fish, about 3000, buy fish food and nurse the fish for five to six months before harvesting them.

‘’I used to buy my fish for N2000 and by the time I started harvesting I would make like N450,000 to #500,000 excluding the ones I will give to my neighbours as gifts.

‘’Let me tell you why I cut the boy’s right hand. I was living outside my house and every week, I go there to inspect the pond at No. 14 Isha Ibrahim street, Mechanic bus stop, Mebanu, Okokomaiko, a suburb of Lagos.

‘’I am an electrician but in 1996 I felt that I could not do electrical work again due to age. As a result I decided to build a fish pond in my compound at the address I earlier told you. I reared cat fish, water snapper that have scales which used to nap water with tail. When I noticed that thieves used to come to steal my fish I decided to raise the fence to prevent thieves from having access to my pond but that measure or step did not stop them.

‘’In fact, the people in the neighbourhood had arrested these boys many times and I had always asked my neighbours to let them go. The only thing they used to do whenever they catch a thief stealing my fishes is to seize the stolen fish and later hand the stolen fish to my wife. However, the boys re-strategized and by digging holes through the wall of the fence through which they cart away my fish almost on a daily basis. All my three children are in the university. The first daughter is in 400 level. I was planning to go home and rest when all of them graduate but these thieves became a nuisance to my struggle.

‘’On the 1st of June this year I went to my house to see my pond as it rained heavily and I wanted to go and check the water level but as I entered my compound I saw fish flying up and being drawn through holes. I saw hooks drawing fishes. The thieves were about seven and they all ran away when I shouted , who are you?.

‘’The following day which was Sunday, I had a meeting with my kinsmen living in Lagos. The meeting was scheduled to be held in my house so I arranged chairs downstairs for the meeting.

‘’It was the same day I had arranged for a carpenter and a mason to come and cover those holes made by the suspected thieves. As I was waiting for the mason I said let me call the carpenter to prepare the platform which the mason would use when he arrives. As I was seated upstairs trying to call the carpenter on phone the thieves came again and I saw their hook ropes drawing away my fish.

‘’I did not know what to do, rather, I decided to go down and see what the thieves were doing well. As I came down, I took the machete I kept near the pond which I used to clear grass near the pond and went straight to where the hook rope was coming from one of the holes. I targeted the hook but, very, very unfortunately, the machete missed the rope and cut the boy’s right hand and the hand fell inside the pond. I became confused and afraid because the boy ran to the street behind my house shouting in pain which attracted one of his relations , passersby and neighbours who came in droves. The boy’s relation entered the pond and brought out his chopped hand and rushed to a nearby police station.

‘’Oh! I was nearly lynched  if not  for the courage and gallantry of two out of the three policemen who risked their lives to rescue me from the mob and took me to their station. You can see the sign of the serious beating I received from the mob. I am from Delta state, Isoko  and my brother is married to an Igbo woman. The Igbo woman is from Ebonyi state. I have not even seen the face of the small boy. They told me he is within the age range of 11, 12 , 13 years. My wife had gone to see them for a peaceful resolution of the matter but she was not given attention. If God sets me free from this problem I will relocate to my village. I will never do fish pond  again till I die.

‘’As I speak, I am still wondering why such an incident would happen because I am a very quiet and friendly person known by my neighbours. There is a retired military officer who is my neighbour. You can go and ask him about me. He will tell you that I am not a bad person. He himself, will be surprised how I got myself  involved in this case and I am suspecting people in my village must have hands in this thing that happened and the way it happened. I know that some of my people in the village hate me and are very envious of me.’’


Confirming the incident, the spokesman of Lagos State Police Command, Mr Bala Elkana, a Deputy Superintendent of Police(DSP), said: ‘’On the 7th June, 2019, at about 12;20pm, one Doris Isaac of No. 6 Ajanaku street, Okoko, reported at Okoko Police Station that on the same day at about 8;30am, her foster son, Goodluck Amechi, of the same address, an 11- year- old boy was attacked with a machete by one Jeremiah Obrifor.’’

Elkana said the 61- year- old man Obrifor who resides  at No.14 Isha Ibrahim street, Mechanic Bus stop, Mebanu, Okoko, allegedly cut off the boy’s right hand and it fell off.

He added that the victim was  rushed to Igando General Hospital for medical attention.

Elkana said, the suspect alleged that he saw the victim around his fish pond and thought that he came to steal his fish, that was why he brought out the cutlass and attacked him.

He also said that investigation was still ongoing and the suspect would  be charged to court after  police  investigation .

Meanwhile, Obrifor has been arraigned before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, for allegedly chopping off the right hand of a 11-year-old boy.

Obrifor was slammed with a four-count charge of attempted murder, causing  grievous harm and unlawful assault.

He pleaded not guilty.
 



Beware Of Poisonous Meat In Market - Agency Raises Alarm

Beware Of Poisonous Meat In Market - Agency Raises Alarm

The agency lamented that the new practice was exposing Nigerians to live threatening ailments and diseases which often times lead to untimely death.
 

The Head, Quality Control,  Nigeria Commodity Exchange, NCX, Dr. Khadijah Abdulaziz has disclosed that some meat sellers in parts of the country now spray dangerous and poisonous substances like sniper on meat before selling them thereby endangering the lives of unsuspecting meat consumers.

Dr. Abdulaziz made this known yesterday in Makurdi during a one-day training for women and youths from Makurdi and Guma local government areas of Benue state on commodity trading organised by NCX in collaboration with Sandstone Associates.

She lamented that the new practice was exposing Nigerians to live threatening ailments and diseases which often times lead to untimely death.

According to Dr. Abdulaziz, “the trend among meat sellers in many markets in the the country is that they mix dangerous chemicals like sniper in water and sprinkle it around and on the meat they intend to sell to consumers in order to chase away flies.

“We all know that snipers is dangerous to the health of anyone that consumes it but meat sellers use it directly on meat products. That is why these days, if you go to some markets to buy meat, you can hardly find flies because they now spray sniper on them.

“We also have the same challenge with the use of pesticides to preserve farm produced which is also causing unimaginable damage to the health of Nigerians.

“When fumigation is done and the produced is supposed to stay for a specific period before being pushed to the market, people do not stick to that prescription but release the product into the market.

“Some are consumed directly by us and also used as feeds for animals but either way, eventually we end up consuming the wrongly preserved food and animals that had earlier been poisoned from the improper application of preservatives exposing us to life-threatening contaminants.”

Abdulaziz said to address the challenge, the integrated approach to crop had become the best form of preserving and storing crops with the use of none poisonous organisms to preserves food crops.

Earlier,  Assistant General Manager, Corporate Communications, NCX, Chris Echikwu said the training was intended to exposed participants to the benefits derivable from engaging with NCX and urged participants to take full advantage of the programme.

SP Isah said, “On 13/06/2019 at about 11:55hrs, distress call was received that, about 100 armed bandits were seen around Pauwa village, Kankara LGA of Katsina state with about 50 stolen cows. “A joint patrol teams comprising Operations Puff Adder and Sharan Daji were mobilized to the scene.
 
“On arrival, the team engaged the hoodlums in a gun duel which made them to retreat and escape into rough and hilly mountainous area of Rugu forest. One Bawa Naganda ‘m’ aged 70years, was arrested at the scene.

“The team extended patrol to other villages and on reaching Danbirgima forest, the team sighted three persons on a motorcycle. The men on motorcycle opened fire at the teams, abandoned the motorcycle and tried  to escape. The team returned fire, as a result one Kurma ‘m’ was shot dead while one Isah Babai ‘m’ aged 25years and one Ali Beti ‘m’ were  arrested by the security forces. Investigation is ongoing,”
SP Isah however stated.



This Could Be My Last AFCON - Mikel Obi

When quizzed about his international future, Mikel said that he is uncertain if he will be available for selection for their 2021 edition in Cameroon.
John Obi Mikel


Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel has hinted that the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) could be his last continental outing with the country.

Mikel has been a regular fixture in the national team frame since he made his Super Eagles debut back in August 2005 during a friendly match against Libya.

The former Chelsea midfielder has been named in Gernot Rohr’s final 23-man squad for the tournament in Egypt and he is now set to play in his fourth Afcon after previous appearances in the 2006, 2008 and 2013 editions.

When quizzed about his international future, Mikel said that he is uncertain if he will be available for selection for their 2021 edition in Cameroon.

“I do not know but I think it may be (my last Afcon). I like to go every year and see how I feel,” Mikel told NFF media.

“Obviously the young players are coming, I think before the next one comes around again I will be 34 or so.

“I think this will probably be my last Afcon but I’m not 100 percent sure yet. I have given so much to this nation and at some point, you have to let go. I don’t want to overstay my welcome.

“I will leave when I feel the time is right. Let’s hope we can make it count.”


Mikel was part of the Nigeria team that won the Africa Cup of Nations title six years ago but he still desires to win more silverware with the Super Eagles.

“I’m always hungry to win if I didn’t want to win then I would not be here. I don’t just want to come in and play the Nations Cup.

I have played so many games and there is no point that I’m just coming to play. I’ve come to win,”
he continued.

“And that’s the same mentality I want to put in the younger ones to win. I know for some of them, it is just their first time and they just want to play but they need to have the mentality of going to win.

“That is the mentality that I have and hopefully, I can translate this from my performance on the pitch and outside the pitch when talking to them. Hopefully, we can do great things in Egypt.”


Mikel has enjoyed an illustrious football career with several awards including the Uefa Champions League, Uefa Europa League, two Premier League titles and three FA Cups among other trophies.

When he finally decides to hang his boots, the 32-year-old revealed that he will not be taking up an immediate role in football.

“Life after football? I don’t know if I will still be in the game, I have a lot of things going on,” he said.

“I like to do business, I’m a business guy so I don’t know if I will have time to be in the game.

I love the game but who knows, maybe one day, I might come back to the game but at this point, after football, I am not thinking about being in the game.”


The Super Eagles have been paired in Group B against Burundi, Guinea and Madagascar for the Afcon finals in Egypt.

They will kick-off their quest for a fourth title against Burundi at the Alexandria Stadium on June 22.

The governor said there would be no sacred cows in the enforcement of the law,and that anyone who broke traffic law will be prosecuted.
Babajide Sanwo-Olu
 

The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has told officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA)  not to spare violators of  traffic laws, even if they were  members of his cabinet or relations, stressing that if his brother were to break  traffic law, he should be arrested.

The governor said this when he visited the headquarters of the agency in Oshodi, on Friday.

He said: “I can assure you, because we are in this together, I am going to tell members of my cabinet if you are caught violating traffic rules, you must pay fines for offence committed, there is nobody to call, nobody is going to be above the law.”

According to him, there would be no sacred cows in the enforcement of the law, saying that if anyone broke traffic law and was arrested and the person said he knew the governor, “tell him to call the governor to pay the money for the offence.”

The governor  promised LASTMA officers that he was going to provide all the necessary materials and equipment for them to do their work effectively and efficiently and that he was also going to look at issues concerning their welfare, promising that their allowance was going to be doubled from the end of July.

He however told them that to whom much is given much is expected and that since he was going to be using the tax payers money to better their lot, Lagosians also expect to see a new reformed, ready-to-go, better equipped LASTMA officials going forward.

“Lagosians have told me that they want a corrupt-free LASTMA officials, offficials that are humble, courteous, respectful and decent officials that are not lazy or lackadaisical, so stop collecting bribes”, adding that they must be punctual to work.

Ruggedman and Naira Marley
 
Reactions have trailed the attack on Nigerian rapper, Ruggedman, by hoodlums at an undisclosed restaurant in London, United Kingdom.
 
It was reported that Ruggedman was attacked on Friday night by hoodlums at an undisclosed restaurant in London.
 
According to a video posted on his official Instagram page, the hoodlums were seen slamming the restaurant’s furniture on the singer’s body.
 
Speaking on the incident, Ruggedman stated that the attack will not stop him from fighting for the youths.
 
But reacting, Nigerians on social media berated Naira Marley fans for the alleged assault while others claimed Ruggedman could have staged the attack for publicity stunt.
 
Here are some comments DAILY POST gathered on Twitter:
 
@Emmah199x, “ I watched my guy get scammed of 272k yesterday, a Nigerian in Nigeria.Those little pieces of dogshit will say they are doing internet fraud to get back the money Americans stole from us. Ruggedman spoke up against them and got beaten.What’s even wrong with us.”
 
@BolaAde11, “So Ruggedman got attacked by touts in London for speaking up against someone publicly defending yahoo yahoo.This just proves the nature of our moral compass and how people have grown accustomed to unscrupulous acts as the norm.”
 
@oluwafemisosa, “That Naira Marley even has fans is a disgrace in the first place. Then some of them now had the audacity to beat up Ruggedman because he spoke against yahoo yahoo.”
 
@Zaddy_nomso, “When Ruggedman speaks against Politicians Looting & Police Brutality he is the Friend of the Youths but when he speaks against Fraudsters he is an enemy of the Youths. Youths suddenly want him to mind his business as nobody is Holy.The Hypocrisy Stinks.”
 
@sirleodasilva, “Just seeing the video of Ruggedman getting beat up. Let me tell you all this for free, as youths, until we start promoting and giving attention to the truth, justice and hard work, this country will never move forward. It’s not a curse, just facts.”
 
@Adisa_flakky, “Ruggedman rescued by London police when Naira Marley followers attacked him at a restaurant for openly condemning Internet fraud in Nigeria.Naira Marley is still wanted by Lewisham Police, United Kingdom. I hope those thugs are arrested before dawn.”
 
@UMEHoma, “The video where they allegedly beat Ruggedman and the one he later released saying he’s fine does not balance well. With the kind of planking he received, he should be wearing the bandage Lazarus wore out of the tomb.This a publicity stunt, period!”
 
@lamlloalade, “From my perspective, 1. Ruggedman uploaded the video on his IG by himself. 2. According to that video, no matter what you wouldn’t be looking unscathed even if you’re Jackie Chan3. How will they beat someone and the next hour you’re in your bed saying you’re alright?”
 
@theboyishreat, “I just believe we need to stop over exaggerating this Naira Marley and Ruggedman issue, I watch both videos, the fight and Ruggedman appreciation to his fan.
Their is absolutely nothing that proves that it’s was Naira fans that attack Ruggedman .
This is just not necessary.”
 
@therealdaddymo, “Pamilerin gets slapped by Peruzzi over an old tweet. Peruzzi gets crucified/sentenced by a panel of Twitter judges & everyone else? Ruggedman gets beaten up by Naira Marley fans in London & suddenly he deserves it because of what he did to Naira Marley?”
 
@efikedimkara, “Guys, Naira Marley fans attack Ruggedman in London.This is the generation of youths Nigeria is raising, youths who assault you for speaking against crime. We’re doomed.”
 
@flairamali, “Plot twist,RuggedMan pays boys to ‘beat’ him up and put it up on social media..He gets free publicity, pity and Naira Marley is seen as the bad guy.”

Okorocha Finally Gives Governor Ihedioha Serious Warning

Okorocha Finally Gives Governor Ihedioha Serious Warning

The lawmaker's warning was contained in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on media, Sam Onwuemedo.
Rochas Okorocha
 
 Rochas Okorocha, Senator representing Imo West has warned the State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha to stop harassing his wife and children.
 
Okorocha, who is the immediate past governor of the state said harassing his wife and children by the Ihedioha-led state government was unacceptable.
 
The lawmaker’s warning was contained in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on media, Sam Onwuemedo.
 
He challenged the governor to take charge as the leader of the State and halt the incessant harassment and abuse of his wife and children by his senior appointees.
 
The statement reads: Thugs believed to be working for the secretary to the State Government, Chief Onyeaguocha invaded a mechanic workshop around the Orji flyover and took away a vehicle undergoing repair and owned by the daughter of the former governor, Uloma Nwosu nee Okorocha.

“Even when she later sent her staff with the particulars of the vehicle they took away, to show that the vehicle does not belong to the State Government and to show that she bought the vehicle long time ago, they threatened to beat her and detain her and never cared to look at the particulars of the vehicle.

“If Ihedioha’s government wanted anything from any of the former governor’s children or wife they could do so through the Police or DSS in the State. Invading their houses or impounding their private vehicles even from the mechanics for any reason, is barbaric and should be frowned at.’

“We want to make this appeal and ask Governor Emeka Ihedioha to take charge as the governor of the State and halt the incessant harassment and abuse of the wife and children of the former governor of the State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha by his senior appointees and their foot soldiers. Specifically, Governor Ihedioha should call Uche Onyeaguocha and his thugs to order and stop them from their harassment and abuse of the wife and children of the former governor.

“Chief Ihedioha should not create an ugly history or set a very bad precedence as the first governor of the State who took delight in harassing the children and wife of the man he succeeded as governor.

“Chief Ikedi Ohakim never harassed or abused the children and wife of Achike Udenwa he succeeded as governor. Owelle Rochas Okorocha for one day, never harassed or abused the wife and children of Chief Ohakim who he succeeded also as governor. Ihedioha should follow those examples.

“His appointees have been harassing and castigating the children and wife of the former governor even at public functions and in the media. This is not good for the Office of governor. They can criticize or malign Rochas Okorocha on any issue which they have been doing, but to begin to harass the children and wife, is unacceptable to us and indeed, to all decent men and women in the society.
 
” Thugs believed to be working for the secretary to the State Government, Chief Onyeaguocha invaded a mechanic workshop around the Orji flyover and took away a vehicle undergoing repair and owned by the daughter of the former governor, Uloma Nwosu nee Okorocha.

” Even when she later sent her staff with the particulars of the vehicle they took away, to show that the vehicle does not belong to the State Government and to show that she bought the vehicle long time ago, they threatened to beat her and detain her and never cared to look at the particulars of the vehicle. If Ihedioha’s government wanted anything from any of the former governor’s children or wife they could do so through the Police or DSS in the State. Invading their houses or impounding their private vehicles even from the mechanics for any reason, is barbaric and should be frowned at.

“It is also important to remind those who have got appointments for chewing election result sheets that no human being has the monopoly of thuggery or lawlessness and the most dangerous situation could arise when people are pushed to the wall. It also gives the wrong impression that those who want to be Secretary to the Government of the State should only need to tear or chew election result sheets. Okorocha’s wife and children never committed any crime by remaining in the State after he had left as governor, when the children and wives of those before him are all at overseas.
 
“They are here because they believe in the State and Owelle has an addiction for the good of the State. Finally, people should not see Rochas Okorocha’s penchant for peace and tolerance as weakness. A word should be enough for the wise.”
