‘Vigilantes’

Vigilante forces are always in the Nigerian news — especially concerning kidnapping or threatening oil workers and companies. I thought it safe to assume I’d be able to get material on the way they behave.

So far, my post on Nairaland has gotten very few replies and the only portrayals the media has of these people is that they’re barbaric.

So little is known about them, that I don’t find it surprising they strike and don’t get apprehended. If my googling doesn’t get me anything concrete, I’m afraid I’ll have to cook up something however untrue it may be.

Apologies to the vigilantes.

    I think it’s okay to ‘cook up’ something, afterall u know what the vigilantes are. U have an idea, adding some salt and pepper to it wouldn’t do anyone harm, would it?

  2. Thanks Lizzy. I’ve been putting off getting back to my book for a while but I’ll soon revisit it.

    Hopefully, I’ll be working all day today at the library. Plenty of time to write.

    Sorry for the Tangent Azuka,

    Thanks for participating in the International InWeDay Celebrations.

    I wish to invite you to participate in the online forum..
    There was a concensus that the participants would like a blogger forum all year.

    I will do my best to keep the forum running and open for everyone.
    It is a closed (private) site. Please tell your friends.
    I wish to remind newcomers to register and login to the site so they can post.

    Unfortunately the content of our June 14th forum went “poof!” into the nether-regions of the Internet. I probably did something wrong while I was trying to learn how to be an administrator. (heehee)

    I have posted new topics.
    Feel free to add your own.
    If the forum gremlin wont let you post what you want, please tell me in the LAST WORD topic choice on the forum.
    LAST WORD is also a good place to give me grief over something, and to tell me something has disappeared or is not co-operating with you on the site.

    The only way anyone will know this site exists is word of mouth/ word of blog. Invite as many folks as you can to register on the International Webloggers’ Day Site in 2007:
    http://www.chronicled.org/intlblogday/

    Plus invite them here to the forum all year.

    Thanks Again,
    We hope you come back often to:
    http://motivatedmotion.com/inwedayforum/

    (I always want give thanks to Rio as well for maintaining the official InWeDay Site.)
