Some Problems Have No Solutions Posted: 11 Oct 2016 08:38 AM PDT

Some Problems Have No Solutions, By Kole Omotoso To say that the problem of corruption has no solution is not a negative conclusion. Neither is it an encouragement to do nothing to weaken the hold of corruption on the Nigerian polity. Rather, it is to assert, after a tour of the history and geography of corruption, that attempts to stem the easy and continuous flow of corrupt practices usually lead to revolutions. Bloody and violent ends visit those who cling to power in spite of their corrupt ways being pointed out to them.

This article was written by Kole Omotoso. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of

It is the massive rejection of the behaviour of the DSS in matter of the judges, especially by the leadership of the Nigerian Bar Association, which has led to this conclusion that the problem of corruption any where has no solution except the dissolution of the affected polity through violent revolution. The NBA would want due process to be followed in dealing with high profile corruption cases. But it is the failure of due process that has led to the situation in which corruption is in control of Nigeria no matter which party is in power. When Dafida Trouble arrived to take up residence in his ancestral home of Nigeria, he took the survival of Nigeria to the Ifa Priest. He later took the same puzzle ‘Will Nigeria Survive?’ to the church and to the mosque. The church said pray and keep on praying world without end. The mosque said Allahu qadara wa insanu dabara! Human beings dabble and Allah creates. The Imams insisted that only Allah can decide the fate of Nigeria. Which stalemate led Trouble to seek the help of the Babalawo. And after consultation this is what Ifa said: “Onikeke has twenty tribal marks; Onigbaja has thirty, while Onikolo has fifty. This statement constitutes the core of the consultation for Trouble. He must sacrifice to avert death. He must sacrifice himself to avert death. Did he do so? He turned deaf ears to Ifa. He turned hearing to doing nothing. He mocked his Babalawo. He asked why the Babalawo always asked for easy sacrifice. If I sacrifice myself I die. And I want Nigeria to survive and I want to be there when it survives. How can I sacrifice myself then? Silence of the Babalawo drove Trouble to begin his travels in search of answers. Onikeke has twenty tribal marks. Onigbaja has thirty, while Onikolo has fifty.” Over the centuries, advisers to rulers, be they kings, emperors or dictators, advisers have always advised rulers against corruption. Machiavelli, John of Salisbury, Jonas d’Orleans and Nizam al-Mulk, as well as the historian al-Ghazali have left their thoughts on the dangers of corruption to the body politic. But in none of these political tracks of advice do these writers tell the ruler what to do. As the writer of a new book Sarah Chavez says early in her book Thieves of State: Why Corruption Threatens Global Security, “Other than threats of divine punishment in the afterlife, these manuals fail to suggest any systematic means of redress against corrupt governance.” (page 16.) Corruption is a moral evil and a threat to the security of the realm. To get rid of corruption, the political environment must change. “Injustice unremedied, with no channels for redress, sow the frustration and desperation that may erupt in violence.” John of Salisbury wrote Policraticus in the 12th century, al-Ghazali wrote Book of Counsel for Kings in the 11th century, Niccolo Machiavelli wrote The Prince in the 16th century, Mirrors for Princes was a common title written before the tenth century, Education for a Christian Prince by Erasmus in the 16th century and Anonymous wrote The Sea of Precious Virtues. Not one of these tell what to do about corruption until it burst into bloody revolution. In England, Charles I was beheaded. In France, the ruling house as well as even the early revolutionaries, were wiped out. Out of those European experiences, the founding fathers of the United States of America fashioned a polity that guarded stringently against the corrupt use of political power. John of Salisbury asks in his Policraticus, “Who is more intuitious than he (who) destroys law by law and is beyond the law, even while he burdens others with the law?” This is a question the members of the NBA should be asking themselves. We have seen the situation in Nigeria, in Kenya and in South Africa where senior lawyers have worked assiduously to ensure that their clients accused of corruption never get their day in court! By using the law to outlaw the law, these senior lawyers create impunity among the high and mighty corrupt people. With the generalised collapse of public ethics, we get an overemphasis on personal morality as a cure for society’s ills. Hence the wrong-headed policy of change starts with me. 1. You purify yourself,
2. Then everybody will purify him/herself,
3. And then society will improve
4. And God will be happy with you.
5. Naturally, you change your way of behaving, of dressing,
6. And if everybody changes their own way of dressing and behaving
7. There will be a change in the nation. This, as we have learnt, does not happen. There is no change in the nation. Read the first speeches of Nigerian coup makers. Why is it that there is no change? Using corruption imagery to counter corruption, reality leaves corruption in tact. If the political environment does not change, corruption continues its reign. And “the Ida that you could change the nation by changing individuals changing the polity by changing individual morality failed.” (page 131 Thieves of State). The reason is that what should be a political war against corruption has become a spiritual warfare against imagined foes at home and in the neighbourhood. Violent language is used in imprecatory prayers. And the raw power of violence is cast in North vs South, Muslim vs Christian warfare. Nobody remembers the variety of the tribal marks of all. Nobody remembers that corruption is the child of political power and that it can only be fought through changes in the political environment. Somebody needs to remember these things. Kole Omotoso writes from Akure.

Lagos State Police Dismiss And Arraign Officer Who Shot And Killed Undergraduate Posted: 11 Oct 2016 07:25 AM PDT

The Lagos State Police Command has dismissed Sergeant Collins Idom, who allegedly shot dead an undergraduate of a polytechnic in Edo State, Joseph Eidonojie-Ugbeni. The dismissed Officer Idom had spent 14 years on the Nigeria Police Force. He was also arraigned before an Ebute-Meta Chief Magistrate’s Court on Monday, the same day the victim was buried at the Atan Cemetery, Yaba. The late 20-year-old Business Administration student was on a visit to his cousin, Friday Ojah, who lived on Alape Street, Iba Ojo area when he was accidentally shot when operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) were chasing a suspected internet fraudster identified as Badoo. A stray bullet from the sergeant’s gun hit Joseph as he was out with his cousin trying to get a canned drink and he died on the spot. According to witnesses at the scene, the SARS operatives put the lifeless body of Joseph in the trunk of the suspected fraudster Badoo’s car and sped off. The unfortunate incident happened on September 19th and on September 23, the police arrested, detained and dismissed the killer sergeant. He was arraigned on Monday for murder, along with three suspected cult members. The charge read in part, “That you, Collins Idom, on September 19, 2016, at about 09.30am, at Iba Town, Iba, Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did kill one Joseph Ugbeni, by shooting him with a gun on his head, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 221 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2011.” The police, in a remand application brought before the court, said Idom confessed to the crime and was identified by witnesses, adding that there was no need for further investigation. His plea was not taken for the crime and the case was adjourned till November 10, 2016. Meanwhile, there was a confrontation between mourners and some policemen at the Mainland Hospital mortuary where Joseph’s corpse was deposited. It was reported that Joseph’s family were about removing the corpse for burial when a team of policemen, who had brought another corpse to the mortuary, were challenged by the family. A source said, “Although the policemen came for a different mission, the mourners abused them for the killing of Joseph. They were close to assaulting the officers but for the intervention of some elderly members of the family” The victim’s father, Patrick, called for a quick trial of the dismissed cop, saying only justice would ease the hurt of the family. “The Lagos CP gave me N500,000 for the burial of my son and for that, I am grateful. The Officer-in-Charge of SARS also gave us some money. But we need speedy judgement. They should not cover up the case, because that will only increase our hurt,” he said. The family lawyer, Saidi Sanni, said the family would demand the payment damages to the tune of N500m from the police. “We will institute an action at the Federal High Court to enforce the deceased’s rights. We will be suing the Inspector-General of Police for N500m damages. The boy could have grown up to become somebody of repute in the society, so his life is invaluable,” he said. The State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, who offered condolences to the family, said the police would not condone extra-judicial killings.   The post Lagos State Police Dismiss And Arraign Officer Who Shot And Killed Undergraduate appeared first on
Clown Scares Woman Into Premature Birth Posted: 11 Oct 2016 07:22 AM PDT

A woman in the UK who was apparently eight months pregnant prematurely gave birth after she was startled by a ‘killer clown’.
The woman is said to be doing well after a 17-year-old frightened her as part of the bizarre clown prank. The incident was reported by a friend of the woman on Facebook, who described it as a “stupid 17-year-old kid” jumped on the mother-to-be dressed as a clown in Whitwick, Leicestershire.
“It’s a nonsense craze that needs stopping,” she added. The Facebook post read thus “Thanks for the concern about my friend. She was 8 months pregnant and had a stupid 17 year old kid jump out on her dressed as a clown . Baby came early but mother and baby doing good . Pls pls think old people and pregnant ladies arent the best to scare . It’s a nonsense craze that needs stopping” The clown epidemic, where pranksters dress as disturbing clowns in order to prey on people’s fears, first started in South Carolina, US has now spread to different countries like the UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Mexico and New Zealand. ‘Killer clowns’ have been spotted all over the UK in recent weeks following people across dark car parks, emerging from bushes and chasing scared pedestrians. Unlike in the US, there have been no injuries reported in the UK but as the craze grows clowns have been trying to out-prank each other, sometimes brandishing weapons. Police have issued a warning to pranksters that they could end up in jail after clowns reportedly armed with knives followed children to a school in Durham.
