MOLD,

LIBYA SLAVE TRADE

This week was all about the slave trade going on in Libya and it’s so disheartening that such evil is still in existence. I watched the report on CCN and I was devastated at the high number of illegal immigrant who are ready to risk their lives just to get to Europe. A terrific trip through the desert in Niger, Algeria and Tunisia; then via the sea from Libya to Italy. All for odobo oyinbo, well who would blame them?
Many a Nigerian have given up on this country, a dwindling economy, the profligacy of our leaders and not to mention the menace of corruption, nepotism, chauvinism, can we even exhaust the list? And so they risk it all in search of pastures new, abandon the Nigeria ship as she is heading for ice bergs.
I condemn slavery; in its entirety! No one deserves to be auctioned off like a rabid dog. It is inhuman and it is against what we stand for as a free nation. Some people are of the opinion that they deserve it because they didn’t go through the right channels, so anything they experience is their business.
Let us throw the stones at the right people; No one deserves the ill treatment, the situation in Nigeria is very terrible.
I went to Kabba, Kogi state last weekend, it was a nice experience. The people were so kind, the food was wonderful, it was a lot of fun. I went via land transport and dear oh dear! the roads are terrible. I feel like joining Femi Falana (SAN) in suing the government of Kogi state for the body aches I experienced afterwards. My body is still not in a good shape. The infrastructures are bad, the roads are terrible. To top it all, someone lamented to me that government workers haven’t been paid their salary for 7 months.
Funny enough I watched a video and one of the guys said he wasn’t bothered about the stress and anguish he went through in Libya and he doesn’t want to come back to Nigeria and start all over again.
I was watching the local news and I was happy something is being done to rescue the affected victims. My sincere opinion is issues like this should be dealt with properly because the same people been rescued might likely be in that same shoes in the nearest future. Almost everyone is running away from this country; special thanks to our corrupt leaders. Even the professional are leaving the country. Our leaders can and should do better; this isn’t the Nigeria I pledged to. There is no need relocating if the country is comfortable for an average Nigerian.
Let us also remember that most people that embark on this dangerous journey are not on social media. Activist should take it to the street and talk to people about the dangers of going to Europe by sea. Even Pastors need to preach about it.
To cheer up this week, I’ll drop some free happy pictures of a lovely outfit I wore in Kabba town. Remember Christmas is coming and there are 1000 and more reasons to be happy.

Nice one. Modern-day slavery is widespread around the world and Libya is by no means unique. It’s happening in the developed countries of the world as well as the undeveloped countries. But what’s particularly shocking is that this is happening effectively in the open, where people can go to a farmhouse, place a bid and end up ‘owning’ a human being.

Sigh! A legit idea you mentioned about going ng to the street to talk to them though. Someone once asked “wetin man do man?” In this case, just to narrow it down, “wetin Africa do Africa?”

I hope this misbehavior ends in no time.

Nice piece, dress well rocked too. Hope we get to read about Kabba a bit more here?

There is a lot to do my dear; we should enlighten the uneducated ones about this risks…. most people embarking on this journey are not on social medias.
Do the little you can do and leave the rest for God.

Thanks for the compliment dear

Hello Mola, based on observation there are 2 types of slavery; the one that someone imposes on another and, the one that someone enslaves themselves with…
…this particular Libyan one is based on the former, people who are enslaved in their minds yet living in a free government dispensation.

We must understand that the highest authority of all, God has MADE us free from fear, doubt, death and every other limitation!

There is a worldly systemic agenda that seeks to deceive us that there’s scarcity of resources, so “survival of the fittest is the way”. THIS IS WRONG!

In order for us to be free, we must make it a duty to research our origin and thoae of us who know the truth must dedicate our lives to setting precious people free.
This is the true and lasting solution that makes freedom sure…

…keep up the good work dear, as I will be a frequent visitor of your blog from now.
Cheers!

Apologies, I meant this Libyan slavery is a type of the latter – self-induced slavery…

This is a very strong message sir. We need to free ourselves from mental slavery before we can be truly free. Thank you for this great contribution.

This issue of Libya slave trading is very very disheartening. We need God’s intervention in Nigeria.
