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.

I agree Ewuro but I think the lady brought it upon herself when she wrote that a contributor should learn to watch his/her mouth like the girl in question should have or something along those lines.

RETIRED CRIMINAL OFFICERS!!!
I told you guys before that whenever a Nigerian soldier is killed outside or inside Nigeria, we must not sympathise with them or their families but REJOICE. They are DEMONS. Instead of protecting us, they loot our treasury and massacre innocent and armless Nigerians. THE nIGERIAN ARMY IS THE PRODUCT OF THE DESCENDANTS OF USMAN DAN FODIO. IT IS THE MOST CORRUPT, INCOMPETENT, VISIONLESS AND MORALLY BANKRUPT GOVERNMENT INSTITUTION IN NIGERIA!
These people were trained and brought with the belief thet they are ABOVE THE LAW. I wrote about this in my article "Leadership, decision-making, the north, military and development in Nigeria (part 1) - available on this site. The article is HIGHLY recommended for those who have not been opportuned to read it. Parts 2 and 3 were written a couple of months ago. They will be posted with time.
It will take a HELL LOT OF WORK to reform the Nigerian army which is PREDOMINANTLY made up of northerners. The ONLY SOLUTION IS TO BREAK UP NIGERIA AND GET RID OF THE DESCENDANTS OF USMAN DAN FODIO
I strongly agree the family of Arogundade should not be drawn into this. They were not there when he his goons committed the atrocious act, and they should not be penalized for what have no hands in.
the problem is the daughter layo. she was running her mouth on face book and people turned on her. you cannot tell people to stop running her down if she can't learn to let her father fight his battle on his own.
remember that some people in this village did not want us to get involved because uzoma father is military. we did not remember the issue of looking at people as individual principle at that time abi?
Elizabeth, is this lady you? If it is, I can understand your annoyance, however I believe you can still get some form of justice by joining this campaign. Lets join hands to stop this brutality and unnecessary use of sirens and convoys
If this lady is not you, then please accept my apology

I have tried to refrain myself from posting a comment but thoughts not spoken won't get heard. It is so sad and .... to see what is going on. I sincerely empathize with Uzoma on what happened to her, many of us have had this experience and unfortunately, i would say, probably because we do not have relatives in the force, responses like this did not come in. My children and I were brutalized by The present Imo State Gov's convoy in February this year and my car severely damaged and the man is still in office. The Lagos state Gov has not sent meand my 6 and 4 yearold children legal counsel...I begin to wonder and may conclude that some of us are not safe! It's a good thing that there is Large enough evidence and something is been done about this menace and those men should be brought to serious justice as REAL examples but we should not wait until it happens to a relative of An officer before we go all out to get justice. THE SENATE IS EVEN SUMMONING THE OFFICER INVOLVED!
If you were there,what would you have done with those goons carrying AK47?
You better shine your eyes well well..
We are even lucky that the person who secretly recorded the show of shame was not seen by those 'Mad dogs', if not, his/her camcorder would have been destroyed or seized, and the person will not go without tasting about 10 lashes of horse whip from Arogundade's boys.
My fear is that we might be shouting for nothing. By the time the high ranking oficers in Nigerian Army and Navy steps into this matter, all in the name of esprit de corps, they might end up wining and dining over it and laughing it off at the officers' mess with the victim's father "instructing" his daughter to withdraw the case.
What's the next line of action should Uzoma Okere decides to obey her father in withdrawing the case? I just sense the victim would be compelled to back out. How can we still prevent a repeat of this barbaric act.
And i strongly disagree. If Layo can go on record to write what she wrote on facebook then am of the opinion that she has inherited her father's barbaric mindset. She obviously didn't see anything wrong in what her father and his "mad dogs" did to this innocent, defenceless nigerian lady. Am sure, if she was in a convoy, in company of her father's goons, she would have meted the same injustice onto Ms Okere, given the same circumstance. That is when you hear words such as "Do u know who i am?....."My father is the Rear Admiral of the Nigerian Navy".....I dined with Chief of Staff, last nite....bla bla bla......what Fela (of blessed memory) tagged, "Power Show"! In effect, i have the right (by birth) to treat commoners like you, like animals!
The sins of the father shall (rightly) be visited onto their offsprings. I understood, Ms. Okere's father is a retired Army Colonel.............
SS Comment: The family is denying Arogundade's involvement in the incident. Arogundade was not in the convoy? They don't understand the media hype. It appears that Arogundade is not the only one of his sort in his family! They refer to the reactions to that video as hype? Hype? That word is offensive in this context. Even if the man was not involved, even if the victim was an animal, how can anyone watch that video and describe the justified reactions as hype?
As if that is not enough of an offense to our sensibilities, they say Arogundade was not in the convoy. Ehen, hen! So, Naibada, the Navy Spokesperson is lying against their son? Naibada's statements clearly put Arogundade at the scene in a convoy. I understand what they are saying. Since there were two cars in the convoy, according to reports, i.e., the pickup and Arogundade's car and the people who did the dirty work were in the pickup, the convoy was comprised of one vehicle, i.e., the pickup. How smart? They need a dictionary to understand the meaning of the word, convoy.
They say he did not order the beatings. Duh! The problem we have with him is that he did not stop the beatings. Indeed, in order to effect the purpose of bringing the victim to him, she was beaten into submission!
Are these people for real? I don't think they understand that this has gone beyond business as usual. Have they seen the video? They better get a lawyer if they want to continue releasing statements. Like Naibada, they are just making a bad situation worse. They can go and tell their long story to Naibada's Navy investigation team.
