Benue Killings; Fallen Heroes Buried Amidst Sorrow, Tears and Anguish

Since the new year, it has been sadness in Nigeria due to the massive killings of Benue sons and Daughter's by  Fulani Herdsmen terrorists which took place on Jan 1, 2018 in Guma and Logo Local government areas .





The state carried out a mass burial today and here are pictures from the sorrowful gathering as Nigerians in Benue poured into the IBB Square, Makurdi to pay their final respect to the 73 Fallen Heroes Murdered in cold blood by Fulani herdsmen Terrorists. 



The governor, Ortom was in tears as he buried dead as it seems the herdsmen has declared war on the state.

Nigeria indeed mourns and the faith in the government is at all time low. Since the killings, the police has also been affected in the killings, and Miyatti Allah, the association of herdsmen has gone ahead to say the only way they would cease the killings, is if the government revisits the anti-grazing bill and consider them pastorialists as fit for their lifestyle.

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

Selling Smart Phone Pictures: When My Phone Photography Exhibition Abuja Held Recently

The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. 
The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
