We Must Take A Stand Against All Forms Of Slavery Including The House-helps You Kick And Scream At All Day At Home’ – Eldee tweets

Nigerian rapper, Eldee while reflecting on the on-going babaric slave trade in Libya, also shed light on the inhumane practices that most house helps in African homes are subjected to and calls it slavery too…

Reaad his tweets below…

..While we’re on the topic of slavery in Libya, I hope we also find time to reflect on the slavery & human trafficking in many of our African homes as well. Those”house-helps” from Benin/Togo whose masters get paid 10k every month to do chores from dusk till dawn. #Slavery

I’m talking about the ones you kick and scream at all day to do your house chores, watch your kids, do your laundry, dishes, cook etc. The ones you pay less than $50 a month to the man/woman who brought him/her from Benin/Calabar/Akwa Ibom/Togo. Yes, that is also #Slavery.

Lets not only kick against slavery when it is convenient. If you really want to take a stand, Let go of the unfortunate teenager that is slaving away in your quarters right now. You are not very different from the Libyan who paid for slaves to do his chores. #slavery

We must take a stand against ALL forms of Slavery. It is not only slavery when it is against black people by other races, it is also slavery when it is black on black. Take a stand today, tell your friend, your family & your neighbors to let go of their slaves. #slavery

The fact that it is a part of our culture doesn’t mean we can not evolve. As we learn and become more aware, we must change our ways and replace our practices with more sensible and more humane ones. Free your slave(s) today! #slavery

I’ve had this argument with many who confuse slavery with employment. You can not employ a child for labor and pay the wages to his/her “master/parent/uncle”. That is #slavery and it is wrong.

There’s little difference in the sex worker that was trafficked to Europe and your house help that was trafficked from the village. So long as the trafficker is who gets paid for their work, they’re both working towards regaining their freedom, it is #slavery.

And please dont get all defensive, we’ve all unwittingly either practiced or tolerated it at some point. I’m not just on a self righteous rant, we must recognize it for what it is. I’m glad we’re all upset about Libya as we should be. But there’s more to be upset about. #slavery

Libya Slave Trade: “Pres. Buhari Is Silent Because Most Victims Are Yorubas, Edos And Igbos” – Fani-Kayode

According to former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, most Nigerians sold into slavery in Libya were natives of Igbo, Edo and Yoruba.

He asserted that 75% of those sold into slavery have their “organs harvested, bodies mutilated and roasted like suya.” and that President Muhammadu Buhari has remained silent over the issue because most of the victims were not from the North.

Here’s what he tweeted;

“75% of those sold into slavery in Libya who have their organs harvested, bodies mutilated and who are roasted like suya are from southern Nigeria.
“They are mostly Igbo, Edo and Yoruba. U see why Buhari’s evil regime don’t care? They are not Fulani herdsmen”- Paul Achalla.”

Photos: Libya To Step Up Migrant Repatriation Flights, As 140 Nigerians Return Home

Libya’s UN-backed authorities said Tuesday that flights repatriating stranded migrants will be stepped up, as the International Organization for Migration called on Tripoli to empty its detention centres.

The plight of migrants in Libya has garnered fresh attention after an outcry over reports of slave auctions in the country, an enormous transit hub for sub-Saharan Africans seeking to reach Europe.

Human-trafficking networks have flourished in the chaos that followed a NATO-backed uprising which toppled long-time Libyan dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011.

In a joint operation involving the internationally recognised authorities and UN migration agency, the IOM, 140 Nigerian migrants were jetted out of Libya on Tuesday in the latest in a string of flights carrying migrants out of the country.

At the Tarik al-Sikka detention centre in downtown Tripoli the migrants received their temporary travel documents, clothing and food before being bussed to the airport.

Flights would increase from two to four times a week in agreement with the UN agency, he said, adding that some 9,700 people had been repatriated from Tarik al-Sikka so far this year.

The latest repatriation came as the head of the IOM called on the authorities in Tripoli to agree to shut down 30 detention centres holding 15,000 migrants.

“We need from the Libyans the agreement that we can empty these centres, and I think they will agree to that,” William Lacy Swing told a meeting of the UN Security Council.

The detention of the migrants, most of whom are fleeing poverty, has become a pressing issue since CNN aired video footage of an apparent auction of African men in Libya that sparked global outrage.

Libya’s UN envoy rejected the report of the slave auctions as a campaign to portray the country as racist and accused African governments of failing to take responsibility for the well-being of their citizens.

Cristiano Ronaldo Cradles His Daughter Eva As They Pose For Beautiful Family Photos

On the football field Cristiano Ronaldo is an icon of the sport and arguably the best player on the planet – but off it he has the responsibilities of fatherhood too.

The Real Madrid winger posed for a picture on Instagram with his baby daughter Eva, one of his four children.

The post was captioned simply with a heart emoji, as the 32-year-old looked relaxed and happy with his little girl.

Eva was born alongside twin brother Mateo in June via a surrogate mother, and is one of three children born to Ronaldo this year.
Ronaldo’s girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, also gave birth to another daughter, Alana Martina, in November, to add another member to a suddenly burgeoning Ronaldo family.

The footballer also has a seven-year-old son, Cristiano Ronaldo junior – leaving him with enough members for a five-a-side team, once his offspring are older and if they are as sport-inclined as their father.

The Portuguese international has no plans to stop however, saying he wants ‘seven children and seven Ballon D’ors’.

With such a busy household, Ronaldo is probably grateful for any chance to get back to training with his Real Madrid team mates, as they aim to close the gap to La Liga leaders Barcelona.

In midweek they have a break for the Copa del Rey, with Real facing minnows Fuenlabrada on Tuesday evening.
Ronaldo may have a rest – much needed – for that game, however fellow star Gareth Bale could make his comeback from injury

The man and his friends reportedly left Lagos to Abeokuta, Ogun state for a party but his mutilated body was returned to his family with the claim that their car involved in accident and the man was the only victim.

Jealous Husband Beats Wife for Every Facebook Like She Receives

A 21-year-old woman identified as Adolfina Camelli Ortigoza, had to undergo reconstruction surgery on her face after her jealous husband punched her for every Facebook ‘like’ she received, Daily Mirror reports. .

Ortigoza was rescued last week after being kept captive in her home by husband Pedro Heriberto Galeano who subjected her to constant beatings, according to police. Her face was said to be completely disfigured by a series of brutal attacks.

Yesterday the woman’s lawyer claimed Galeano, 32, would become violent when anyone liked the photos she posted of herself on Facebook . He began to beat her up every time one of her friends on social media reacted to any of her posts. .

Galeano later took control of her Facebook page, where he would post pictures of her, and continued to punch and kick her for every ‘like’ the posts received.

Lawyer Arnaldo Martinez told how Ms Ortigoza, from Nemby near Asuncion, Uruguay, would dread a notification telling her that someone had reacted or commented on a post.

Her friends had no idea that each time they made the friendly online gesture she would be brutally beaten. He said: “He accused her of having a relationship with them.”

The man’s father finally reported his violent son to the police after he believed the woman would die following the last attack. Ms Ortigoza was so disfigured by the violence she wasn’t able to recognised herself after being shown photos of herself after being beaten.

She underwent reconstruction operations of the nasal septum and lips. Galeano was captured and charged with attempted femicide, deprivation of liberty and coersion, crimes which carry a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison.

If you fix your countries, people won’t see the need to migrate illegally at all cost! I cannot imagine the level of depravity that will make a person subject themselves to such routes of migration Alas, a lot of people don’t even know this is what awaits them on the other side. To you young person reading and seeing, I know it’s hard, I know…but if the migration route is not clear cut or legal, my brother, my sister, e better to suffer for Nigeria or which ever country you dey o! To you mother, that brother or sister or ‘Mama Italy’ or whoever that said you should bring some money and they’ll ‘help’ your son or daughter to ‘abroad’, this most times, is what awaits them.
In the meantime, let’s cry for help for the thousands that are trapped there in slavery and even in prisons.

Libyan government, how do you people sleep at night knowing this is happening in your country? These are human beings being slaughtered and enslaved #PrayForOurBrothersAndSistersInLibya but while we pray, let’s shake the foundations with our voices! With one voice, we are loud enough! #Libya #ModerndaySlavery #Slavery
