Leaked Ekiti Tape: How Nigerian military tortured my brother — Captain Koli

Sagir Koli, the Nigerian Army Captain, who exposed the planning and rigging of the 2014 governorship election in Ekiti State by top government officials and the military, has given details of how his younger brother was arrested and tortured at a military facility in Ibadan, Oyo state, after he fled the country.

In a video made available to PREMIUM TIMES on Monday, Mr. Koli said 15-year old Adamu Koli, who lived with him before his escape, was arrested in his house in Akure, Ondo state where he was serving.

“He was staying with me and was attending Army Children School in the Barracks, they went for him after they learnt I have left.

“When he was released, he told the family that he was chained, handcuffed and starved of food. According to him he was fed once, or twice at times often with the kind of food he was not used to,” he said.

Captain Koli also revealed that as a result of what he went through, the young Koli became sick.

“They took him to the Hospital, and doctors said he was ulceric,” he said.

Also, in a petition to the chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, a copy of which was made available to PREMIUM TIMES, lawyers to the Koli family said the young man was chained to his bed even while in hospital.

The lawyers, J. Akin Ajayi and Associates, said the younger Koli was detained at the Military Hospital within Adekunle Fajuyi cantonment in Ibadan.

They said as solicitors to the Koli family, they undertook a trip to Ibadan with a member of the Koli family to verify the whereabouts of the boy and ascertain his state of being.

“At Fajuyi cantonment, we were denied access to the young man in the cantonment in spite of showing them his passport photographs and narrating the relationship between the young man and the officer in whose custody he has been,” they said.

Although Adamu Koli has been released at present, the lawyers in the petition, written on November 15 last year, pointed out that it was wrong for the military authorities to transfer their anger with Captain Koli to his younger brother.

The chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, Chidi Odinkalu, could not immediately confirm whether it was the commission’s efforts, based on the petition by his family lawyers, that led to the release of the boy.

The video, leaked by Captain Koli, revealed how some Peoples Democratic Party’s chieftains connived with security agencies to rig the gubernatorial election in Ekiti State.

At the meeting, as evidenced by the recording, prominent officials of the PDP were heard discussing strategies for rigging the election, a poll in which the party eventually won by a landslide.

But some of the actors, including Musiliu Obanikoro, a former defence minister, and Ayo Fayose, who defeated the incumbent governor, denied being party to the plot to rig the election and questioned the authenticity of the recording.

Despite their denials, the Minister of Police Affairs, Jelili Adesiyan, who also attended the meeting, confirmed Sunday that the tape was authentic.

He however disagreed with the context of the discussion, saying the meeting was never about plans to rig the election.

    This buhari’s family member is still talking to himself,since nobody believes his stories, he’s cooking up more stories to get sympathy, if ypu.like kill your brother as claim it is the military that killed him.i don’t know how ekiti and osun were rigged when everybody came out to vote, nobody was stopped from voting or arrested except apc miscreants that were sent to rig and don’t forget pdp lost in osun so how did that happen?

    • amazing2012

      Justice is a language of all, tribe,ethnicity, region and religion is language of division.
      If you think everything is OK because JONA is your brother then answer these:
      1. Did others choos their tribe ?
      2. Did God ask us to rig and cheats in election ?
      3. Did anyone of us choose his region or religion ?
      Jonathan is not christian and does not represent chrisitanity. If you believe Jona is Jesus then ask yourself how ? Is Jesus a failure ? Is Jesus a politician that support wrong ? Has Jesus failed to solve a problem ?
      You are suffering and hate has made you blind !!
      Jona is a disgrace to Christianity and shame to christ !!!

      • evi

        Please leave Jesus out this discussion because if I call your mohammed a paedophile and a murderer whom you and your terrorist brothers are following his footsteps, you won’t like it .The.leader of your party and Buhari’s god father , Tinubu is the master rigger of election and the most corrupt human being in Nigeria, think about that before you accuse anyone else of rigging, we all know that it is only when apc wins an election that it is free and fair but when they.los it was rigged. If you were born into a religion that is violent and intolerant and blood thirsty, it is up to you to leave it and find a peaceful religion. Buhari is a murderer and a religious bigot with blood on his hands, even the economist attest to that fact

        • Kunbee

          Ur jesus is more paedophile and a murdere than even the westerners!

          • evi

            Ur mohammed is a paedophile and d murderer! That is why your religion is violent, look around the whole world, ISIS,al queda and boko haram are all killing in the name of mohammed, your mohammed is so useless and such a coward that he cannot fight his battles, he has to use you and your terrorist bothers to fight his war

      • kamal Kamoru

        Mehn, from your tone, you seem to be the one filled with hate here mallam!
        This is why some of us will not touch Buhari with a long spoon..because of people like you. Most of his supporters are SO SO VIOLENT AND INTOLERANT!
        Tell me mallam, what brought Jesus into this discussion now?? The guy above is entitled to his opinion as u are to yurs. So why the hate??
        Point to anywhere in the guys comment where he said Jona is Jesus??
        Liar! I hope u know all Liars have their place in the pit of hell??
        Aboki, yur comments are there for all to see. You are a very intolerant person. I have noticed how you rain abuses on other tribes. And you have the guts to say others are divisive?
        Hypocrite!

        • NazirJos

          I think amazing2012 made point here, because Jesus was sent as mercy and savior. Therefore all who rightly follow his path must learn from how he lived. How he sacrificed himself and all worldly things for his people, consequently how he made great nation.

          Our problem today is we claim to affiliate to some religion but never follow the actual teaching of that religion. We Muslims must learn how Prophet Muhammad PBUH lived; how he tolerated; how he stood by justice. E.g. During life time of the Prophet an Arab Muslim stole something and framed on Jewish man, eventually the case was brought before the prophet, the Prophet did not side with the Muslim, rather he punished the real culprit who was the Arab Muslim. Question. Are we like that today? If NO then there is problem and that’s what we must change.

          • kamal Kamoru

            I agree completely with you my brother..your comment is very moderate. However, go thru Amazing2012’s comment again and if you are honest as a true believer, you will notice his own unwarranted attack and venom!
            This is not right..everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion..no matter what we may think of it.

      • Tunde

        Amazing 2012, you seem to be a bigot.
        Why the harshness of your tone? Can’t you respect others views?

        • amazing2012

          Please read EVI (L)’s comment. What did he mean by BUHARI’s family ? And how are they related ? Tribe, region or religion, hence my answer to a hypocrates. Come out clearly to define what you mean !!

          • Tunde

            You accuse the guy of attacking Buhari’s family..u are also guilty of attacking other tribes. Your comments abusing other tribes especially our igbo brothers is well documented.
            THAT IS CALLED HYPOCRISY MALLAM!

    • Advocate

      try and read the news from several directions. ekitigate happened. it will cost gej, obanikoro, fayose dearly. watch and see

    • Talatu

      I pray they mishandle one of ur family members or u.

    • Dan Arewa

      The letter ‘L’ is missing at the end of your name. ‘EVIL’.

    Why all these now?

    • tundemash

      Is there any time limit in exposing a crime ?

  • Don Messi

    Other online media like even the Punch update their news items almost every minute, with HOT relevant articles. Sadly on the other hand, it now takes PT about 24hrs before they can come up with a wishy washy article…like this! Reason seems to be that PT prefer to take an eternity to release a story(fable?) patiently waiting to make sure it’s a story that will discredit the government of the day.
    We wait 24hrs for a hot gist and all they come up with is this wishy washy tales by moonlight??
    Incredible!

    • Advocate

      you have no shame. i hope it is your sibling that is kidnapped and totured by your security guards. its our taxes that is used to pay our military. you have no idea at all. dummy

    • Talatu

      No one forced u to read their news,good or bad, so shut ur stinking mouth or keep reading their good stuff!

      • Don Messi

        Thank you talatu! Read your comment and that of the clown called ‘advocate’ above! I just get amused when I read abuses from your types. I swear, every decent person knows APC is full of violent people. It might surprise some of you shallow minded people that some of us do not think much of GEJ. But after weighing both options, I am entitled to make my choice. Same as you and ‘advocate of EVIL ‘!
        I would never abuse and insult you for making your own choice. Keep abusing me, it only tells me the kind of way you were raised. GUTTER LOW LIFE!

        • blueeyedkitten

          are you sure you’ve not insulted somebody here?

        • jimmy105

          Get out from here and patronise ait ,nta and other state sponsored media outlets.. PT is washy wishy but still you are here every seconds of the day because you know their news is accurate and indepth. You are a hyprocrite !

    • blueeyedkitten

      please you can leave this PT forum, and go to other places like ait, nta or guardian. i am quite sure you’d get all the things you want their.

  • Gaskiya

    My head scratches me each time I hear reports implicating our military in sabotage and corruption. This is because this is the same institution that was once respected internationally. Unfortunately, the Nigerian military is now led by crooks who do not value and respect their own profession.
    This is why there must a radical restructural of our military so that all those who do not have passion for the military profession are weeded out. And the earlier this is done the better because Nigerian sovereignty can not be left in the hands of uncommitted military leaders such as our current army chiefs.

    • NNAMDI EZENWAFOR UNIJE

      IS A SIGN AND PROVE THAT NIGERIA IS COMING TO AN END SOON AND VERY SOON!

      • Dan Arewa

        It is good that Nigeria outlived Biafra.

        • NNAMDI EZENWAFOR UNIJE

          WHY TORTURING A LITTLE BOY FOR NOTHING HE KNOWS ABOUT???
          THAT’S IS A SERIOUS HATE CRIME.NO COUNTRY WITH RIGHT MINDED LEADERS WILL DO THAT.AS A MATTER OF FACT;THAT CAN NOT HAPPEN WHEN BIAFRA IS RESTORED VERY SOON.

    • evi

      When buhari used the same military to arrest,jail and send people to the firing squad without trial when he was head of state, were yu blind then? Jonathan has spent just four years as president, your northerners ruled for 40 years, what did you achieve? If you are looking for crooks, check out the leader of your party and Buhari’s godfather,tinubu. He is the chairman of crooks

      • Dan Arewa

        I wish he is still in military so that he can repeat the same to these BASTARDS who have been raping our country.

        • evi

          You can form your own military in arewa republic and let buhari be your president there and you can rape all the underage girls and cows, since you like the word,rape so much

          • jimmy105

            How much you were paid per message ? i guess #5, keep trying until you reach your target today… its to going to be hard to make a lot. i pity you !

      • tundemash

        name one person that was sent to jail or sent to firing squad without trial cl0wn ?

      • jimmy105

        He is a blatant liar ! Dundee boy for Dundee Dumbo !

  • Ekerete Etukudo

    in another more important news, “INEC needs to explain how more people in the war-torn North-East have collected their PVCs than in the South-West, South-South and South-East. In the APC strongholds of the North-West and the North-East, 80.18% and 81.09% collection rates were recorded respectively. In the North-Central, the figure was 69.89%. However, the figures in the South were significantly lower than these. In the South-East, it was 59.22%. South-South: 66.66%; and South-West 43.15%” — Femi Aribisala

    • Advocate

      i hope your brother is kidnapped by your security guards and tortured and left by the roadside. tell me what’s more important than being tortured by your maids and houseboys that you pay with your taxes?. dummy

    • Yusuf

      YOu have forgotten that all INEC staff are employees of Jonathan. when u are not sure of being Nigerians how would you collect your PVC, even in 2011 everyone know the figures were rigged. When an igbo man do not come out to vote for a governor I wonder how he could come out to vote for a president. Less than 50% came out to vote for all other offices but more than 90% voted for president in the same election in 2011 and nothing was wrong about that

    • evi

      It was Jega and apc evil plan to disenfranchise and reduce the voting strength of southern voters and pdp stronghold so as to clear a path for buhari to win the election, even children, chadians and nigeriens collected pvc in the northern while eligible voters in the south are still struggling to collect theirs

    • oche

      I live in south-east. the people there are not really interested in collecting their PVCs. most of my friends here in south east does not believe in this election. they think is going to be rigging as usual.

      • evi

        That is a huge lie! What about lagos that recorded barely 30% pvc collection? They too. Are not interested, right?

      • Pissed

        That’s not true. Many South Easterners have changed location since the registration, several have lost their temporary voting cards and INEC in the SouthEast does not allow collection by proxy. In the North, community leaders who registered fowls and chickens are collecting for them, unlike here where you must come personally, even if you are physically unable to.

        Lastly, the timing clashes with business hours.

    • omoshetan

      You are not human. A small 15 years old boy was unjustly tortured and you claim it isn’t important? han han!! I am sure you have or you hope to have kids someday. Why don’t you think of this boy as your own? Why are you so heartless just because of money?

    • blueeyedkitten

      maybe because the pvcs outnumbered the actual population of those that registered in 2011. we all know in 2011 there was a lot of fake registered electorates, that were used to rig that election…..thus, avalanche of pvcs with nobody to collect them.

  • SAM .A

    15year old is a child , chaining a child to bed for months and starve him of food till he developed ulcer for no offense is callous,inhuman & worst child abuse by Nigeria Army. Who ever gave the order should be sacked and prosecuted. Failure to punish the wicked soldiers that did it , the case should be reported to UNICEF & UN organ that deals with child abuse.
    The court should adequately compensate him.

    • NazirJos

      Well said. Hope ears will hear!

    • NNAMDI EZENWAFOR UNIJE

      GOD BLESS YOU FOR SAYING THE TRUTH WHICH IS LACKING IN THE ZOO CALLED NIGERIA

    • Dan Arewa

      I am sorry to say but that is what our military are best at. They can’t fight Boko Haram but they can brutalize innocent defenseless civilians. Remember before BH ever started their massacres, Nigerian army show them the way by doing what they did in Baga. That is where Boko Haram took over till today. Nigerian Army said they cannot guarantee security during general elections earlier scheduled to take place on Feb14 due to the preparations to tackle BH. This sounds more like the army is sabotaging democracy by making this childish excuse. Nigerian Army are the ones who always throw their guns to BH during combat and leave defenseless civilians at their (BH) mercy.

      With GEJ heading the government and Minimah heading the military, Nigeria is heading to collision.

  • Advocate

    some people thought the postponement of the election will bury this news. but alas! it will bring down gej, obanikoro, fayose, chief of army, Police IG, etc. god forbid my security guard (military) that i pay with my hard earned money (taxes) kidnapped me, tortured me, starved me. then get away with it. god forbid

  • warry

    This guy should take all his stories to the courts. Let us discuss our politics. No further distractions please.

      so what’s the main story about? dummy

    • tundemash

      One day, it will be your family memeber or yourself subject to same maltreatment. You recall same military leveled Odi ? The TAN stove and bag of rice you receive from the looters now has beclouded you to a crime that might be visited on you some years later. Keep “eating” your future now !

    • Funso

      Because the story is rue and will send Goodluck Jonathan to jail? Do you have the CerPtifigate to say what you are saying? You guys have just started. Your Ijaw President -Goodluck Jonathan is headed for jail after this.

    • MathewBabs

      pls always reason from ur brain

  • Maria

    This is Jonathan’s jungle… the infertile man was talking about a jungle in Lagos… I dont know any other jungle other that the one he now presides over as the chief jungle zoologist. This incident can only happen in a jungle…even in some jungles, it cannot happen.

  • David Adeniran

    I can only say that by the Law of Retribution and the universal Law of generational Harvest, May the children of JONATHAN, BRIGADIER MOMOH, OMISORE, FAYOSE, OBANIKORO AND ALL OTHER ACCOMPLICES go through what this poor young boy went through SEVENFOLD. It is not a curse but simply the Law of Harvest.

    • evi

      And may ur own children and your generation go through what those youth corpers buhari sent his supporters to kill ,went thru.May the same fate that came upon those innocent people in the north that are being killed everyday by boko haram whom buhari supports their cause,come upon you and your generation. Beware, the word of God is a double edged sword and who ever goes to equity must go with clean hands

      • David Adeniran

        As long as I do not support anyone whom I know has committed the crime you claimed, then that curse can never come upon me or my generation. It is simple because a curse that is causeless can not stand! Maybe you don’t know, check your Bible.
        If you support evil, evil will befall you, your children and your generation. it is that simple and not a curse. Look, if Buhari actually sent people to kill the Youth Corpers, then God will visit him with evil at the appointed time. You have accused ‘Buhari of sending his supporters to kill Youth Corpers.’ Now if that was the case why didn’t your President, Commander-in-Chief bring him before the law? I can see that you are truly EVIL as your profile name. May you reap the works of your hand! (please say Amen because I am ready to say Amen if you pray that prayer for me).
        I did not issue my curse on the basis of insinuation but on the basis of evidence before the whole world. That is why my CURSE is not causeless unlike yours.

        • evi

          Since you know God will judge all and sundry, who then made you God to curse anybody? You like to place curse on people but you don’t like it if the same curse is placed on you abi? Hypocrite! as for buhari’s atrocities, his case is before the ICC and he will surely pay if not before he dies, then surely after he dies, it is the evil in your miserable life that is haunting you, that is why you see evil anywhere yu are if not you will see that the name is evi. What a worthless human being!

          • David Adeniran

            You are just ignorant and that is why I will pardon you for your demonic output. I simply stated the Law of Harvest! While you were only making rash comment on insinuation! You know neither the truth of the Bible nor facts in your environment. I don’t need to tell you my worth, this is not the right forum; but I am not worthless and can never be worthless both spiritually and physically. Infact, it is now impossible for me to be worthless! If there were evidence that Buhari committed the crime you mentioned, is that not why we have a President whom we have given the mandate to go after all criminals and offenders? You should be ashamed of yourself that criminals known to you are working free when you have a President who you strongly believe is competent.

          • evi

            Your ignorance is second only to your being worthless ,and saying here that your are not, does not change that fact, you are worthless and that is the truth,nothing anybody can do about that, you are a lost cause. Now, let us talk about criminals,the leader of your party and godfather of buhari, tinubu is the most corrupt criminal in Nigeria, and he walks freely, if you are not ashamed of that, why should I be about Jonathan that has not even stolen one tenth of what tinubu steals from lagosians and other apc states?25 billion disappeared when buhari was PTF chairman and you are here looking for criminals. Buhari went and hid abroad, all the money he stole when he was head of state, petroleum minister and PTF chairman and he’s here pretending he’s poor and incorruptible, yet he is under the control of the most corrupt human being in Nigeria, tinubu

          • David Adeniran

            When you have all these evidence of corruption and crime against Buhari and Tinubu, so why can you advise the President to prosecute them? Honestly, it is a waste of time exchanging words with your type. Have a nice day.

          • evi

            Don’t go o! Come and continue to defend criminals like buhari and tinubu, if no court has prosecuted any of them, which court prosecuted Jonathan that you have labelled him a criminal ? You can dish it out but you can’t take it. Buhari’s atrocities is already before ICC, his forged cert and fake affidavit case is already in the court, tinubu atrocities is being counted for him,when God is ready for him,he will answer, how old is buhari now? Did he ever believe that 30 years after, he’s atrocities will come back to haunt him? Same thing will happen to tinubu.

            My friend, go back and read his previous comment and stop writing trash here,that is how you people will always want to turn truth on its head. He specifically cursed Jonathan, omisore,momoh,obanikoro and their children. Who made him God?

      I recall what Obasanjo, your Yoruba brother did in Odi (an oil-bearing Niger Delta town) by executing a pogrom that claimed thousands of lives…he did same in Zaki Biam, Benue State, leaving sorrow, tears and blood..
      I also recall what Yar’Adua did in Gbaramatu Kingdom (an oil-bearing Niger Delta town), before the declaration of amnesty, that also left sorrow tears and blood….
      You are attacking GEJ, and claiming against him, what APC wanted to do with Jega’s INEC, I.E. RIG THE ELECTION!!!!!
      For every allegation you stage against PDP, APC is guilty of thousands!!!!!

      • David Adeniran

        Etomi, I do not support evil from anyone whether OBJ or Yaradua or Uba. Does it mean because of many past wrongs, we should not condemn a present wrong?

        • Etomi

            There is a maxim which says ‘the facts speak for themselves’. Such is the present case. Please go and listen to that audio tape recording (even if you don’t want to believe the Captain’s interview). It is just a shame! Have you read that of one the culprits admitted that the meeting took place? Can anyone deny that evidence Etomi? Why have will allowed our eyes to be so beclouded? Even if you will defend these people on something else, please certainly not this one!

    The Nigerian military “disvirgined” Nigeria in 1966 and up till now, we are yet to recover from their many atrocities, corruption, divide and rule violating the human rights of many Nigerians with impunity and their latest crime is their inability to fight bh which really exposed them that they are mere peeper soup military. Nigerians keep saying that our military served well during various international assignments but what people who are praising them to high heavens failed to realize is that they are under strict rules, regulations and standards of the United Nations and they dare not break these international code of conduct. 99.9% OF THE NIGERIAN MILITARY ECHELON CAN NEVER BECOME SARGENTS IN WESTERN MILITARY FORCES BECAUSE THEY CANNOT PASS ALL THE STRICT PROMOTIONAL EXAMINATIONS AND TRAINING. I am not surprised they brutalized this young boy because they are stark illeterates who cannot differentiate right from wrong. jonathan, pdp and the military have boxed themselves into a corner by saying “THEY WILL WIPE OUT BH IN SIX WEEKS”. IF THEY DO NOT, THEN, THEY HAVE FAILED NIGERIANS AND THEY DO NOT DESERVE OUR VOTES. IT’S A REFERENDUM THEY CHOSE AND THEY MUST KEEP IT OR ELSE, jonathan SHOULD RESIGN IN SHAME.

      Nation-building is not the Premiere League, where agberos, motor park touts, and everybody knows the game better than the coach!!!!
      Nation-building is for the best and the brightest….
      For years, the Niger Delta has been feeding an ungrateful nation….
      And in the last 5years since the emergence of GEJ, all that Yourba has done is fight a Niger Delta son (President Jonathan) with their partisan press, and Hausa with Boko Haram..
      Today, Yoruba and Hausa are ganging up against Jonathan (The Niger Delta)…
      They are biting the fingers that feed them!!!!!!
      This would not go without consequences!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        We are all pretending and waiting for the trouble ahead and we will not miss it.

        The Yorubas and Fulanis have made up their minds on what they want. The South South and South East also have.

        There is no use pretending while dealing cruel blows on others and you want them to be civil.

        If the two groups wanted to change just Jonathan, they would have opted for an Amaechi to douse the tension. But for all they care, anyone from SS and SE is not worth the Onion. How they thrashed Amaechi with all the mess he has caused the SS and Rivers State money blown on the account of the Yorubas and Fulanis

        They advise others not to consider voting on religious and ethnic basis, but their agenda are derived from that. I pity the Igbo mugus thqt re following band wagon, because they can only get to Aso Vipla if Jonathan runs to 2019, which must be sabotaged.

        The truth is – Nigeria is on her way out and cannot be reversed.

    In the euphoria of getting Jonathan out of power, we are inadventently celebrating subversive agents. When an intelligence officer of the state turns in informatiion that came into his possession in the process of carring out national assignment to an opponent, he is clearly an enemy of state because he has broken the oath he swore to uphold by virtue of his position. But to now act as a mole or a spy of the opponent is treason and it is a capital offence, hence he escaped. It is jonathan today it could be johnson tomorrow, let’s not celebrate and encourage enemies of the state. That was how those that swore to protect aguiyi ironsi killed him. When classified infomation are released with reckless abandon and the beneficiaries are celebrating, your own turn is around the corner too

        Ekiti people whole heartedly voted for Fayose and no election was rigged.

      This argument was based on a wrong premise. What affairs of state was Fayose carrying out? What does the military have to do with partisan security in a state without the state government’s representative? The oath is to the country not individuals.

        APC will never accept defeat no matter what because they believe that all the best at all time . when APC lost any election it is rigged but when they won it is the wish of the people. the former governor of Ekiti was defeated in his own ward in his presences and he accepted but APC leaders refused to accept the wish of Ekiti people . the so call Captain Koli did not tell us in details how what he said translate into rigging .

      You can’t be real! The man has exhibited unparalleled patriotism by his action. He swore to defend the integrity of Nigeria and you expect him to keep quiet when those who should show examples were trampling on the constitution. Leave political partisanship for once and face facts, in saner climates all those involved should be facing the law but since we thrive on impunity, it is business as usual

      He did not sign an oath to destroy democracy or bastardize morality. What you called “classified information” is celebration of madness by so-called leaders; mind you, a nation will always decelerate if the truth of the crudities of inane leaderships is not exposed. If Koli is a spy to right wrongs, you have to celebrate his heroism. If the APC accesses the presidency, and issues like this come into the open, I know Nigerians will condemn it, and that will also mark the beginning of its unpopularity. But for now, APC is in the ascendancy in most of Nigerians’ analytical estimation. After all, in 2011, GEJ was celebrated, and there were no hues and cries, as he sailed “jelenkely” into the Villa. As Nigerians, we have to hail the actions of moles that dig into the destructive covens of the enemies of the people, be they in PDP or APC; that is how a nation grows; a nation does not grow by protecting SECRET plans to be in power by all means illegitimate. Any secretive plan, besides campaigning and urging the people to vote for one through issue-based interactions, is self-seeking and anti-people; it is not democracy but sheer demonstration of craziness, and it should be exposed and deplored.

    Is Mr. Goodluck A Goodluck to Nigeria?

    Today in Nigeria, corruption is accommodated, corruption is celebrated; the President can not declare his legitimate assets. Today in Nigeria, public servants and politicians engaged in primitive accumulation. Today in Nigeria, our security system is compromised. Today in Nigeria, in spite of abundance vegetation and fertile soil, the simplest things we cannot provide; Rice is imported from India, Tomato is imported from Italy, Toothpick is imported from China and so many more. Today in Nigeria, ourmajor roads have become death traps. Today in Nigeria, Air traffic controllers are in strike. Today in Nigeria, Judiciary workers are in strike. Today in Nigeria, Nurses and Midwives are in strike. Today in Nigeria, nobody has faith in government institutions including the government itself; ministers of health ran to Egypt or Germany for medical checkup, ministers of education sent their kids to UK or Dubai for education, ministers of power relied on standby generators for electricity, Today in Nigeria, noting works well. Today, Nigeria is a tragic country!

    • evi

      Keep wallowing in ignorance. The reason why you think rice is still imported is because you can’t tell the difference between made in Nigeria rice and foreign rice anymore.Some companies producing rice in Nigeria had to label their rice as foreign rice just to get people to buy them, a bag of rice is now 7-8k as agaisnt 15k, go to the market to confirm and stop displaying your ignorance in public .

      • Musbau Hamzat

        Shame on you for that statement – “Some companies producing rice in Nigeria had to label their rice as foreign rice just to get people to buy them” You are not proud of what you produce. They were only packaged in Nigeria and they can not loose their patient right. U understand now.

    This Captain is APC captain. Where is the official report you wrote to your brigade commander complaining of illegal duty? So Buriha is your commander abi? Where were you when election in Ekiti was announced free and fair? Were you part of those that collected money or not? How did all these stories translate to rigging you didn’t say? Did PDP bring mercenary from another state to vote? How did they do it?

        This is unnecessary distraction, APC is diverting people’s attention to this instead of focusing on the so called presidential candidate who has refused to present his certificate to INEC rather he sent people to represent him in the court. If this officer is sincere, why didn’t he come out since when election was declared in Ekiti state free and fair? This officer is doing this in retaliation of what the Ekiti state governor published and advertised concerning Buhari.

        • Eagle Eye

          While I agree with you that Buhari should present his certificate, to prove his honesty, yet I think that Buhari’s case cannot change the fact that a rape was committed in Ekiti, (if the recording in question is proved to be authentic)!

          We should not cover an atrocity of this magnitude because of mere sentiment. We should be bold enough to call a spade a spade.

          • Bestvoice123

            My brother, I am not supporting any party. My frustration is why waited after eight months of election to say election was rigged. If after this election in March 28 and it happened to be rigged, and you have the evidence, will you wait after eight months to say election was rigged? It was announced in his presence free and fair. Yet he didn’t react. That was why I said this is in conjunction with Fayose’s publication. I condemned that his publication, I was against it. However, without mincing words this is in retaliation of that publication. At least I am entitled to my opinion. An average Hausa man will do everything possible to get power back.

            On the interview with SaharaTV, the captain explained why it took a while before the tape got to website that leaked it (SaharaReporters). Also, Sahara did not run with it immediately, it gave it to an Investigative firm to Authenticate the voices through Forensic Analyses. The result of which is posted on the SAhara’s Website. So they are REAL!!!

        Let me hear word! Last time it was a Soldier on CNN, and he confessed that they were not given ammunition to fight Boko haram. Weeks later boko haram showcased whole lots of arms and ammunition abandon for them. And people were abusing Jonathan oh he sent soldiers to fight with sling and stone. Oh he is clueless. Today another soldier has come out in Sahara reporter with fabricated story. These are Buhari boys. If not why did he run away? He went about it the right way? Who is taking care of him where he is? Tomorrow another malam Will come up with another cock and bull story. If the captain is honest, he would have written an official report first or reported the case to next hierarchy in command. Did he do that? Instead he looked for his commander Buhari to hand him his tape.
