Our Unforgettable Moments of 2016: Nunnsi and Celina at the Elegushi Beach in Lekki



Our Unforgettable Moments of 2016: Nunnsi and Celina at the Elegushi Beach in Lekki


This is one of our unforgettable moments of 2016.
Our time out at the popular Elegushi beach in Lekki during the making of my "Lagos in Motion" tourist documentary film in 2016.
Two young Nollywood actresses, Nunnsi Ojong and Celina Ideh enjoyed every moment.
Celina was scared of falling off one of the horses and screaming "Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!" Then she was twerking later after overcoming her fear. They had a bottle of wine before the sunset.

Thanks to all the members of the cast and crew.
I launched our Screen Naija YouTube channel where you can see all the clips of the locations.


Unknown to the public, during the production of the "Lagos in Motion" documentary film, l was challenged by the kidnap of a Nigerian secondary school girl who was lured from Benin in Edo State and taken across the Sahara desert to the Republic of Niger and finally to Libya where she was in the custody of sex traffickers waiting to be sold as a sex slave or taken across the Miditterean Sea to Europe. I was able to secure her release after 90 days. And she returned by air to Nigeria and rejoined her family in Benin city.
Thanks to all those at the UN, UNICEF and IOM who gave me their morale boosting support.

Zahra's Father In-law, Muhammed Indimi is in big financial Crisis


Zahra's Father In-law, Muhammed Indimi is in big financial Crisis

Alhaji Mohammed Indimi who owns Oriental Energy Resources is in big financial mess because he has to pay up debts running into 500million dollars. Indimi can’t pay up because the price of crude oil had plummeted and the billionaire is confused.


The arrangee marriage is more of a smart way to save his business empire when President Muhammadu Buhari decides to bring the anti- corruption hammer on illegal oil blocks and other financial crimes in the oil industry.

For those who do not know, Oriental Energy Resources Limited was established in 1990 by Muhammed Indimi and was awarded an Oil Prospecting License (OPL) 224 by the regime of former military President, General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd).

The Fateful Day General Murtala Ramat Muhammed Was Assassinated in A Coup D'état

The Fateful Day General Murtala Ramat Muhammed Was Assassinated in A Coup D'état

Friday, February 13, 1976 has remained an unforgettable day in the political history of Nigeria and in my memory.
It is over 40 years ago, but the most tragic incident of that fateful day was the assassination of General Murtala Ramat Muhammed in one of the bloodiest coups in Nigeria since the first coup executed by the late Major Kaduna Nzeogwu on January 15, 1966.  The coup plotters led by Lt. Col. Buka Suka Dimka also murdered General Muhammed's Aide-De-Camp (ADC), Lieutenant Akintunde Akinsehinwa and his driver, Sergeant Adamu Michika. But his Orderly, Staff Sergeant Michael Otuwu miraculously survived after he regained consciousness later in the morgue.

 The ill fated Mercedes Benz 600 car at the scene of the assassination.
The Mercedes Benz 600 car is now in the National Museum in Lagos.

The official black Mercedes Benz 600 saloon car of the Head of State had been ambushed at the popular Alagbon Junction on Ikoyi Road whilst on the way to his office at Dodan Barracks in Obalende, Lagos.
I was in class one in secondary school at the famous St. Gregory's College in South West Ikoyi, a walking distance from the nearby Dodan Barracks. My parents had gone to work and I had gone to school without knowing that a bloody coup d'etat was already going on nearby. It was about 10am when we heard echoes of gunfire and pandemonium broke out as both teachers and students panicked in fear and trembling. As we rushed out of our classrooms, we saw some parents coming to take their children away. We saw a Nigerian Army soldier with a gun running on the street of our sister school, Holy Child College.

The gate of St. Gregory's College.

The coup potters and loyal soldiers of the Nigerian Army were having gun battle from Ikoyi Road to the Obalende Road leading to the State House at Dodan Barracks.
I found my way to our house at No 28, Obalende Road from the adjoining streets connecting to St. Gregory's College, because many houses in Obalende had thoroughfare passages or corridors connecting one street to another.
My parents and siblings were already back home with our cotenants and their families and we cowered indoors as sporadic gunfire continued for hours. But peeping from half closed doors, we could see  some armed soldiers using the big gutter on the Obalende Road as their  trench in the gun battle.

Then later we were told that the coup had been aborted by the loyal soldiers of the Nigerian Armed Forces. There was a radio announcement of dusk to dawn curfew.  And everyone remained indoors waiting for more announcements on Radio Nigeria and Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) News network.

The tragic event of Friday, February 13, 1976 has become the thriller of a new historical period drama aptly titled '76, directed by Izu Ojukwu, an award winning Nigerian filmmaker. The film is a must see for everyone who wants to see the principal characters of the tragic coup d'etat and the trauma suffered by their wives and children afterwards.

'76 is showing at all the cinemas in Nigeria. See http://76themovie.com/.
