Graphic Video: Here's What this "Noble Officer" and his Men did to a lady for obstructing their convoy. Their destination: A drinking Joint.

Follow discussions on this thread on how you can help get justice for this lady. At the very least, Rear Admiral Harry Arogundade should leave the Force.

The victim, Uzoma Okere, has started a movement called Uzoma Okere Foundation Against Armed Forces Brutality in Nigeria on Facebook. Here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?sid=c6187aba2298cbbab0c5542325883052&refurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fs.php%3Fq%3Duzoma%2Bokere%26init%3Dq%26sid%3Dc6187aba2298cbbab0c5542325883052&gid=42779233277

We can help her create the groundswell needed.

It is sad that in this 21st century, military men are still behaving like "stone Age" men.

These Navy boys and their Rear Admiral seem to have forgotten what the armys did to the police a few years ago at Ojuelegba, when the Ojuelegba Police Barracks was almost demolished by soldiers from Abalti Barracks. Recall that the Lagos State Police Command spokesman was given a good dose of police brutality.

Anyway what were sailors doing on land with horse whips ? bet these ratings and their admiral can't swim 100 metres in water

Why are you surprised? Are you acting? Don't you all remember the mad dogs in the convoy of a governor that beat up a woman in front of her two children earlier this year or last year?The governor who is a civillian was in the convoy and he said nothing. The two children ran across the road in shock. Luckily good samaritans caught them and saved them from being run over.


This reminds me of Late M. K. O. Abiola and the mad dogs of the Nigerian Air Force sometimes in the late 80's when one of his bloody civilian sons messed around the airforce boys that are perenially not flying but rather permanently on the ground.

Also remember the Apo Six and Mike Okiro when he was DIG "B" Department.

Sent my own protest letter to the CDS and NaSS.

And count me in for any support needed in making sure this sort of madness comes to an end (maybe not today, but sooner rather than later)

Please, if you have Miss Okere's contact tell her to quickly go and incident the case with the police at VI and let her get a very senior and competent lawyer to file a civil suit against that mad dog and claim all his life's worth which definitely she will get. Let her not be deceived or intimidated by what rank the idiot carries on his shoulders, the courts will humble him once, Miss Okere is detrmined to go all the way to the supreme court but, I can bet you that it wont get to that because once, she is determined to go all the way the mad dog will come crawling to her on his knees begging for settlement. I can bet you that

Re: Miss Uzoma Okere - A call to Reason

Ladies and Gentlemen of the noble Village,

If there is anyone who has watched this video and is not enraged then I doubt if that person has any blood passing through his/her veins, but then the question is where do we go from here and what exactly do we set to achieve?

We will have to choose our battles carefully otherwise the goodwill enjoy by NVS will soon be squandered.

First of all we need to hear from Miss Okere, what her stand is and how far she is willing to go as the symbol of the struggle.

What are the options?

Civil Suit - Most unlikely, the Rear Admiral may refuse to show up in court and I am yet to see who will enforce a Bench warrant against a Rear Admiral in Nigeria. Or even execute a writ of fifa against his properties.

Criminal Prosecution (of the ratings) - We may pressurize the Lagos State Government to bring criminal prosecution against the officers. I believe with enough pressure Fashola may be willing to do it. But what if the lady is not willing to testify?


Mass Protests - This will bring this kind of brutality to limelight.


I am not comfortable about the first two options, first of all from what I know about military tradition, you WILL NEVER get the cooperation of Col. Okere rtd. to prosecute those brutes. He and other top Military Officers serving and retired will put pressure on Uzoma to drop the idea. She will probably get a token gift for that, probably a better car than a Mitshubishi Colt.

The Lawyer option is a complete waste of time.

This kind of battle is better fought where an ordinary Nigerian with no military or powerful background as the victim/symbol. This will put us in charge.

The fact that her father is a retired military officers has created a big barrier to pursuing the matter to any logical conclusion.

You guys want to embark on a battle where you can never take charge or be in control.

Our efforts at his point is limited to given more publicity to the brutality to minimize future occurences.


@tonsoyo
All i am advocating is the highlighted above. How Uzoma Okere decides to pursue her situation/case is down to her.

Thanks

I hope that Ms Okere will have a higher moral ground, be the bigger person here, in this matter to honorably defend her credibility, decency and dignity which I am afraid most Nigerian military men do not have any respect for anyway.

This will not be the last, but I am sure that depending on how Ms Okere deals with the matter, then history will be made.

Becoming a Nigerian Rosa Park out of this experience is more worthy than any cheap token gift of appeasement from unfortunate worthless baboons and monkeys in the Nigerian military, to pacify or pressure her to sweep the matter under the carpet.

It is more about her father than her. I am sure you know the amount of influence fathers have on their daughters, a successful one at that.
