“I want war”, says the excited young man.

The young man shouts ” I want warwar or death”. The boy on social media say “Give me guns and I would kill all these people” amidst likes and comments. He has never seen a real war before, in fact the last time a crisis happened when he was in university he ran faster than a hungry lion chasing an antelope. His social media handle shows he stays in a different continent from place where he supplies “Petrol” for the embers daily.

When I was younger I loved war films; “Hard way the only way”, “Wild Geese”,  “Delta Force”, “Solo”. I was fascinated by how a single soldier who we called ‘The actor” could defeat everyone almost single-handedly and how towards the end of the movie, he killed “The evil one or boss” ( pronounced Booze).

In these war films, The warring soldiers were mainly affected, however in reality women, children and civilians are the worse hit in wars and crisis situations.

When wars or disasters break out, “the big boys” and instigators usually feed fat from it, their families will be in foreign countries, they will fly into foreign countries in private jets and have peace keeping meetings with those in the opposing camp and they will sleep in five star hotels while this last, they will lobby to win contracts to supply weapons and ammunition. Meanwhile young boys will be forcefully enlisted into the army and those that oppose will be killed before they even say no. Yeah “No” does not work in wars, it is “Obey the last command”. This last command may even be you holding a gun and killing your loved ones.

Schools would be a luxury, Ugwu leaves would be worth its wealth in gold, two meals in a day will be “bae”, a sound sleep will be only for the elite, a lizard would suddenly be tastier than a well cooked chicken, people would lose their virginity because of a scoop of salt and milk, and dreams would turn to nightmare.

The big boys will struggle to be in charge of provision of relief materials to displaced people in refugee camps and they will enrich themselves at the expense of these hapless and vulnerable people, soldiers will rape and defile any thing that can be defiled once orgies come and when these wars end the instigators if they play their card well will take over leadership and continue their luxurious lifestyle from where they stopped.

Leaving behind broken dreams, broken families and unhealed scars.

Wars and crisis, lead to no where in particular, the devastating effect can not be quantified or adequately explained in words.

Let’s embrace peace.

No one really wins any war.

Its effect does not respect race, colour or creed.

Be a peacemaker.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Seeking for second opinion is not weakness

Pilate wanted to let Jesus go. So he made an appeal to the crowd again. But they kept shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” Pilate spoke to them for the third time. “Why?” he asked. “What wrong has this man done? I have found no reason to have him put to death. So I will just have him whipped and let him go.” But with loud shouts they kept calling for Jesus to be crucified. The people’s shouts won out.

Luke 23:20‭-‬23 NIRV

The e-mob, the online offsprings of their ancestors who cancelled Jesus…the template is same…accuse anyone of anything…accuse a man you can’t get of rape and the mob shouts, ‘crucify him’… and willing accusers show up.

Accuse a pastor of rape and killing a girl in his church and the mob shout, bloooooood, blooood we need blood…it is true…that is where he gets his power from…and willing accusers type on social media…many times things not true.

Accuse a business entity of ‘kurukere’…and come all out…cancel them…they are cancelled…accuse a rich man of doing rituals…and the mob shouts burn, destroy, scatter, steal, kill destroy.

Have a heartbreak, get upset, accuse the alleged heartbreaker of ‘Wu Wu not take it’ …flash his or her number online and tell the mob, feed them with blood…shout bloooooood, shout attack and they all go out…with no evidence, no thought, no critical reasoning, no second opinion and they go for blood…and the cycle continues.

Seeking for second opinion is not weakness… patience is not weakness… temperance is not weakness…mercy is not weakness…it seems it is weakness…until you are in front of the mob…a cockroach in the gathering of chickens.

Ponder on these words

Blue Tongues may spell danger.

The tongue sometimes tells a story…

When you go for a party or an outing and you see people’s tongue blue, it is likely a pointer that drinks are laced with Rohypnol.

Rohypnol is a tranquilizer ( drug used to relieve tension and anxiety) which is 10 times more potent than valium.

It some countries it is used as a sleeping pill.

Rohypnol also is abused as a recreational, or “club” drug, often in conjunction with alcohol to provide a high.

It is used in various forms including; crushing the pills and snorting the powder, sprinkling it on weed and smoking it, dissolving it in a drink or injecting it.


It is called in the streets; roofies, date rape, forget me pill amongst other names.



When drinks are laced with Rohypnol, the person who drinks it may not know as it is odourless and tasteless and because it is a strong sedative and also associated with amnesia the victim will not remember what happened, little wonder it is called forget me pill.

It is one of the commonest cause of surprise pregnancies in young people, especially when the only thing they can remember was that they went to a party or visited someone.

Choose your friends wisely and shine your eyes.


Drugs do not pay.


Stay away from drugs!

Anger, a ‘D’ short of Danger.

I have seen sweet people turn to incredible hulk with little or no provocation, I have seen people who their anger is like bicycle, ‘e no dey hard to start’…yeah some of them believers too.

I have seen people leave a church program in high spirit, blessed and inspired and boom minutes later fight violently with other people, for almost no reason at all…I have seen people turn red with little or no provocation.

I have seen people have their weddings called off because of misplaced outbursts of anger publicly exposed due to the planning stress. I have seen brethren turn their wives to punching and kicking bags and I have seen wives turn their husbands to punching and scratching bags.

And many time help is closer than many people think.

It is good to pray and fast, make up and make decisions to change, but when it
‘Told in Gath, Proclaimed in the streets of Ashkelon— and the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, and the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph’ that you are an atomic bomb looking for where and on whom to explode, it is vital to seek help quickly.

Fortunately help is available, as you pray and fast, it is not unscriptural to seek medical help…to seek Psychiatric help…to begin cognitive behavioral therapy and medications where necessary.

Mental health issues are not wished away, or watered down by ice cream, a new bag, a gift, a hug or make up sex, alcohol or recreational drugs.

Seek help, before you destroy important pillars in your life.
