President Muhammadu Buhari, in an interview with Al Jazeera discusses the current challenges facing Nigeria. He touched on issues such as falling crude-oil price, Nigeria’s membership in OPEC, Nigeria’s participation in the Islamic coalition force against ISIL, and his opinion on the killings of un-armed IPOB members agitating for Biafra.
A group of Nigerians, suspected to be students, were arrested and paraded for violating existing curfew restrictions in Lugansk, Ukraine. They were said to be drinking alcohol, while some of them were accused of being in possession of Marijuana, as well as beating of an assistant to an MP, who requested not to be named. Of importance, is the supposed request by the Nigerians to be enlisted to fight against what the narrator referred to as the “Kiev Junta”, after they learnt of the planned attack on Donbass from Kiev. According to the narrator, the Nigerians expressed their satisfaction and likeness for Ukraine, are well fed and are generally happy with their current lifestyle. On camera, however, none of them made any statement.
Below is a Facebook update from Александр Жучковский, showing images matching some of the arrested Nigerians, engaged in cleaning activity of what seems to be a large compound:

Please go and perform your civic duty on March 28th, and vote the candidate of your choice. Our future as Nigerians depends on the quality of the leaders we elect into office.
Cast your vote for the candidate of your choice, Do Not Sell Your Vote, And Shun Any Sort Of Pre / Post-Electoral Violence, Or Electoral Disruptions Of Any Form.
Let Your Vote Speak, Not Your Muscle. (Watch parts 1 & 2 below)
A video released by Boko Haram shows some girls, allegedly abducted by the group dressed in hijab and reciting Quranic verses in an open space with shrubs and trees in the background. The girls seem calm and well-kept, haven spent about three weeks in captivity. The leader of the group, Shekau, claims that some of the girls have already converted to Islam, and the only condition for their release will be in exchange for their members held in Government prisons.
It is expected that Nigerian government will see to it that the girls are re-united with their families as soon as possible. The whole world is watching and waiting for a victorious end of this campaign to #BringBackOurGirls.

This is a video documentary about Nigeria, specifically Lagos, by BBC. While the video goes in depth into Nigeria’s woes and harsh realities, it failed to capture other positive aspects of Nigeria. This is what will continue to happen, if Nigerians leave foreign media to be the sole source of information about Nigeria.
However, it would’ve been a lot better if there weren’t such situations to document.
