The Nigerian army has admitted bringing live bullets to Lekki tollgate where a controversial shooting took place on October 20, 2020.
Ibrahim Taiwo, commander of the 81 division of the Nigerian Army confirmed this while being cross examined by Olumide Fusika, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN) before the Lagos judicial panel on Saturday November 21.
Taiwo who said the live bullets was for the protection of the army team that was deployed to restore order in the area, averred that the soldiers who opened fire used blank bullets. He also disclosed that their colleagues with live rounds were on ground to protect from suspected hoodlums who fomented trouble.
Nollywood Actor, Gideon Okeke has taken to his social media page to vent against the ill-treatment of Actors in the Nigerian movie industry.
According to the thespian, he’s been feeling frustrated and he questioned the usefulness of the actor’s guild in Nigeria.
His IG post reads ;
Why is it right for Actors to not receive royalties and residuals for their life’s work in Nigeria.
Is it because it says so in the contract ?
Is there really always a contract ?
What the heck does the guild stand for really ?
He continued via the caption ;
I’ve really begun to feel frustrated in this CRAFT that I love so much. Remember that during the times of COVID lockdown, ONLY folks working in “essential services” were allowed to come out. Doctors, Nurses, Farmers etc etc.
Let me remind you that while you were holed-up in your home for upwards of 4 months, watching Television, The ACTOR participated actively, in keeping your sanity in check. That’s An Essential Service if you ask Me.
But for All that the ACTOR does (for society) all that accrues to him at the end of the day, is the upfront payment which he accepted. Which most of the time, comes at a Piecemeal drop, covering for a duration of A Lifetime….For Life!
A lot has happened today as the Special Voting continues in all the 275 constituencies across the country.
With just a few hours to end the special voting process, Ghpage has chanced on a sad video of a landlord ejecting a tenant for supporting NPP and refusing to vote for the NDC come December 7.
The tenant, a woman with kids who seemed to be an NPP fanatic despite the warnings her landlord made it clear still can’t denounce her party for anything.
The woman who seems to insist on voting for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was then dragged out of her rented room while the landlord drags her bags along.
The woman was heard in the video pleading with the landlord indicating to him that she was hurt and that evicting her from the house was not right because she has nowhere to go.
“I built this house with monies I made from the NDC so if you’ll not vote for the NDC pack your things and leave my house. I said vote for the NDC and if you won’t vote for the NDC then move out.” the landlord was heard saying.
Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Terseer Waya a.k.a Kiddwaya has thrown shades at haters who are bearing grudges in their hearts.
Speaking via his recent tweet, the billionaire son advised haters to either bring a chair to the round table or continue looking through the window from the outside hating.
In his words;
“Happy new month everyone. Remember. The hate in your heart you have for other people will stay in your heart. So you can either find a way to bring a chair to the round table, or continue to look through the window from the outside hating.”
