Davy Jones Scrolls are testimonies. Sometimes severe punishment result in great blessings. When I was sentenced to Davy Jones Locker to spend the rest of my days there by Cap’n Blood, I was blessed with The Better Salvation. I also became Mascot of Davy Jones Locker assisting Forgone terrors in their transitions. Here are some of my told experiences. Read More “Davy Jones Scrolls”
The leading University Campus Grown Fraternities (UCGF) have had a long run of durability in their existence. Like many glorified dictatorships, autocracies and predatory cults, their enduring survival is a function of the culture permitted by the founder or historical leader’s longevity. There is no retirement- some are late and some are present. Read More “Fraternities Are Viruses In Nigeria 13 – The Disintegration”
No punishment has ever possessed enough power of deterrence to prevent the commission of crimes. On the contrary, whatever the punishment, once a specific crime has appeared for the First Time, its reappearance is more likely than its initial emergence could ever have been – Hannah Arendt
When punishment becomes too common or an overused resort, it is evidence of an ill-governed organisation, institution, or brethren dependent on wielding the stick to hide the visible inefficiencies and corruption of its leadership and its day-to-day affairs. The rottener the brethren, the more punishment meted out to its members. Innocence or guilt do not count in the decisions of punishment. The errors arising from such vague decisions are not to hold the brethren back. We are talking about oppression here. Read More “Black Spots and Human Rights”
Fire!!! Fire!! I have to repeat it, Fire!!! When two or more Otukas gather, a fire is nearby ready to consume habitually bad men mercilessly. No ashes remain, and the Fire is too hot to scream in. Kegs of rum and seas of brine cannot quench it. The Fire though is always a potentiality, and it is only the purity of the human spirit. The Otuka encases that which turns him away from such an eschatology of the wicked. Inevitably, sometimes it has to be done. Plenty of indications, no announcement required.
May one resort to God’s word in this endeavour? For those who read the Bible or never will, I want to interest them in the “Book of Kings” 1: v 9-10;
The Otuka (a.k.a. Akanda Eniyan) is born into this world very lonely, living on his terms, mostly. He misunderstands everyone else; he is someone everyone else misunderstands. For those he encounters, everyone else is his challenge, and he is everyone else’s challenge. Trouble? His life is never easy even if gifted, successful, influential or content and is harder when this is not the case. He, as the intersection of misunderstandings, cannot find a like mind as others naturally, e.g. as thieves and drunkards do. What frustration! Yet he thrives.
When the realm governed by the Bad Brother is hollowed out from the inside by the purposeful preponderance of evil, excesses and abuses to the point everything that held it together is so polluted and its rules irreparably unenforceable, a power vacuum is created. That is the art of negotiating oneself out of power by sloth. Folly. The high and mighty in society that once gave credibility and legitimacy to the realm turn their honourable backs and conveniently depart gradually if they were not expelled earlier. The least among men devoid of rectitude, creativity and intelligence then come into ascendance and potentially power by way of hunter-gather style ambition. The realm then gets hollowed out further till the skin breaks from the inside to the surface. Only the memories remain and the smell.
Boiss dey! Boiss always do right where the Bad Brother has done evil, and they invariably succeed in the end. The tables have now turned for the better, and the seating arrangements have changed for good as they should have a very long time ago. Not until the revolution is complete do guynes believe it.
The end of the era of the leaders who are bad brothers need not be obscure, it must never be. The final evidence of poor but manipulative leadership that has enduringly ruled over others for a long time by way of deception, arrogance, intimidation, force, mystery and fear is the unmanageable chaos it produces within the boundaries of its control.
