Femi Gbajabiamila On Death Caused By His Security Convoy

Published

on

A horrible incident has taken place. This evening as I left the national assembly, I stopped as usual to exchange pleasantries with the newspaper vendors at the corner. Many of them have known me since I first moved to Abuja and it was a friendly exchange.

Unfortunately, after the convoy set out in continuation of movement, unidentified men obstructed the convoy which got the attention of security men in the convoy who shot into the air to disperse them.

Some hours later, after getting to our destination, it was brought to my attention that someone was hit by a stray bullet, contrary to an earlier report by men in the convoy that they applied their security discretion to shoot in the air.

I am personally distraught about this incident and my deepest sympathies go to the victim, his family and Abuja vendors.

I have caused a report to be made to the local police station and an investigation has commenced. In the meantime; the officer who fired the fatal shot has been suspended from the convoy pending the conclusion of the investigation.

My value for human life and my respect for all people – irrespective of social economic status – is what endeared me to these vendors and these are the reasons why I stop my convoy quite often to connect with them.

For one of them to have been shot by my security detail is horrific and I cannot begin to imagine the grief and loss Ifeanyi’s family must feel on this sad day. No family should have to go through this.

Lydia Forson Dazzles on the Cover of Schick Magazine’s Latest Issue

Published

on



Ghanaian actress, producer, entrepreneur and activist Lydia Forson is the cover star in the annual Fashion Issue of SCHICK Magazine 10th edition.


In this Fashion Issue, Lydia who is known for promoting body positivity speaks about her style, public perception, getting the E! nomination, her latest project, roots and activism.

On public perception:

I try to remember that the concept of perfection is a farce and even the people talking negatively about my body, have their own insecurities to deal with.

On her latest project:

I recently starred in a movie called “Us In Between”, which was inspired by true events leading up to the lockdown in Ghana when COVID-19 cases started going up. It drained me emotionally and mentally because not only was I embodying the character as an infected nurse, but filming during what was and still is one of the most difficult periods for filmmakers. I had to not only dig deep into my emotions but the fear of being infected regardless of the safety protocols put in place.

On getting the E! Nomination:

I woke up to the email at midnight and thought it was a prank. I like to believe that it’s just me being myself that may have attracted that sort of attention, and if that is why, it’s all the validation I need to continue being me.

Tiger Beer Spotlights Men’s Mental and Physical Health Care

Published

International premium beer brand Tiger Lager recently organized a two-day event to appreciate and create awareness for men and their mental health for the month of November. It was pure excitement as notable individuals like Noble Igwe, Taymesan, Nnamdi Okeke, Samuel Otigba, and many more were in attendance.


The events which were held at the Live Lounge in Victoria Island, Lagos, and the Mancave in Lekki, Lagos, gave men an opportunity to talk about important things that affect them, all the while enjoying cold beer and playing exciting games and activities.


The events were put together as part of the brand’s movember campaign to raise awareness for men’s mental health. “Movember” is a global movement to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and men’s suicide using unconventional approaches such as a man’s moustache. The Tiger beer brand encouraged its consumers and target audience to Uncage their “Tashes” and emotions throughout the month.

With this unique campaign, the public was implored to join in on the conversation, as Tiger beer had giphy tashes, IG Live with a mental health professional, tiger care packages amongst others encouraging men to share their unique stories.

Speaking at the event, Brand Manager, International brands, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Chinwe Greg-Egu said, “Tiger beer inspires people to uncage and express themselves. For the last month, the Movember campaign started and maintains the conversations we seldom ever have in Nigeria. Conversations highlighting how men must be in tune with their emotions and mental health. With this campaign we wanted to create a safe space for them, and I’m glad we not only did that but we surpassed expectations.”

For men who attended the Mancave x Tiger events on Friday, November 27, and Saturday, November 28, the events posed an opportunity to uncage – either by having a clean haircut, playing snooker, or even having a pedicure right at the venue.

Tiger Beer, a product of Nigeria’s leading brewer, Nigerian Breweries Plc, is known for its penchant for self-expression. For two years now, Tiger Beer has constantly thrown its weight behind conversations surrounding its unique brand message of uncaging, and it seems no one is left as men uncaged their emotions, anxieties, and thoughts.
