Edo state is the heartbeat of Nigeria and the cultural hub and crossroads of the country. Here a tourist will experience the real excitement of contemporary life and profound sense of history.

Igun-Eronmwon quarters popularly known, as Igun Street Benin City {listed as Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO} is the home of the brass/bronze casting industries in Benin. It constitutes one of the 31 guilds of the Oba of Benin, in the ancient Benin kingdom.

Following the incessant killing of Christians in the Northern part of Nigeria by members of Boko Haram sect, some 'misguided' Southerners have already begun series of reprisal attacks against Muslims in their areas.

A mosque was set on fire at Kings Square in Benin yesterday , while a popular Bureau De Change building (pictured below) was also set ablaze. So far, those who have been killed are said to be about four. I even saw a live picture of one of the victims who was "roasted". Very terrible sight and I can't post such here.

 

Breaking  news: A mosque in Igun street is burning right now in benin. The reason is that two private bus line operators (God is good) & (Big joe) motors were set ablaze in northern part of nigeria  resulting to benin youths burning d mosque! Our source reveals that the muslims remaining in benin are calling their hausa soldiers in the force to disperse and beat up the youths! As I speak, tear gas and fighting is happening @ 2nd east circular road, benin city! Pls Re broadcast so that we can save lives!

    You can not put Lion and Goat together Nigerian is not one Country let us stop deceiving your-self my calling one Nigeria you are not one it is in the history.

    THE EDO STATE YOUTHS ARE BURNING MOSQUE WHEN THE NORTHERNERS HAVE MANY KILLED THOUSANDS OF SOUTHERNERS

    THE NORTHERNERS NEVER BUILD A GOOD MOSQUE IN THE SOUTH, EVEN IF ANY MOSQUE IS BURNED WITH SOME NORTHERN PEOPLE IT IS THE SHOE SHINNERS THERE WILL BE NO RESPONSIBLE ONE .

    It  is because of the selfish interest of the European that made you to answer one Nigeria .

    But we all know, but the problem is who will come out and said the truth if you come and start saying the truth the political illiterates and unfortunate rich men will conspire with their western ally to kill the Vision

    I want the whole world , Federal Government and everybody in that unfortunate Country call Nigeria that they are not one people .

    There was an article i read in 9jabook.com last year an undisclosed name from  State Security Agents  said that late Moummer Gaddafi is the sponsor of BOKO HARAM !

    Please let whole world , Federal Government and everybody in that unfortunate Country call Nigeria hear my voice the so called BOKO HARAM is sponsored by Retired Military Personnel and Serving ones , Some old and new Politician Serving ones  and Retired so let us stop deceiving the World .

    The Northerners are no longer interested in staying together with the Southerners because they know they are not the same people so let us stop forcing each other together because they want go .

    MARK MY WORDS IF YOU PEOPLE CONTINUE TO STAY TOGETHER AND FORCE EACH OTHER TO ANSWER ONE NIGERIA FOR MOUTH THE COUNTRY IS GOING TO EXPERIENCE MORE DEADLY EVIL FROM THE NORTHERNERS MORE THAN THIS ONE !

    THE BEST SOLUTION IS,THE COUNTRY SHOULD BE DIVIDED TO SAVE LIFE`S AND YOUR FUTURE GENERATION

  • Well. I'm not surprised at what is happening right now. The Northerners have chewed more than they can swallow. The killing in the North was becoming unbecoming. Nobody is a monopoly of violence. In fact , the country is very fragile at the moment. Beleive it or not, any thing can happen any moment from now. And my Brother President Jona can't see beyond his nose. Very unfortunate. The mass movement of people from the North to the South and vice versa is a very bad sign. Honestly most of us are no longer comfortable. The Security report , I'm sure is deceiving our President- HIS EXCELLENCY.
