“Troops this morning captured Gwoza destroying the Headquarters of the Terrorists self styled Caliphate,” stated Major General Chris Olukolade, Defence Director of Information. “Just this morning, the gallant troops of the Nigerian military in a concerted and well-coordinated land and air operations have liberated Gwoza, the headquarters of their so called caliphate which they renamed ‘darul hikima’.”

Weapons and ammunition have also been seized but, it is unclear where the Boko Haram fighters have gone – as no significant figures were provided by the military:

“Several of the terrorists have died and many of them captured in the process,” stated Maj Gen Olukolade. “A massive cordon and search has commenced to locate any of the fleeing terrorists or hostages in their custody.”

“That’s like dating my son,” Laughs one lady.

In Nigeria, age and respect is a big deal in families and especially in marriage whereby women always marry men that are older for various reasons.

But would a Nigerian woman marry younger man? And by younger we’re talking five to ten years gap. Kayode BattaBox presenter hit the streets of Lagos to ask Nigerian ladies if they would marry a much younger man, and we definitely got interesting answers.

“I won’t respect him and i won’t be submissive to him,” one lady said .

While some would never marry a younger man, others would only marry one if the age gap is say two to three years.

“Pork is dirty,” replies one man

Pork is the name of the meat from a domestic pig and it is one of the most consumed meat worldwide. Although pigs are known to be dirty animals and this myth has stuck to them,as well as the fact that pork has so much old and is unhealthy making some Nigerians weary of pork.

BattaBox presenter Adeola takes us on a tour to a pig farm in Lagos, Nigeria. Where we meet Mrs Esther Akintomade who takes us on a tour of the farm and tell us one or two things about pig production.

“We mix corn and bread to make their food,” Mrs Esther says . “They eat twice a day, ” she adds.

Adeola also went out to ask Nigerians on the streets of Lagos if they eat pork, and we got interesting answers.

“i don’t like pork meat,” some Nigerians replied

But for those who love pork, Adeola asks them how they like it.

“I like pork in pepper soup and stew,”

“I like it fried,”

“Climbing the overhead bridge is a waste of time,” says one guy

Nigerians are accustomed to crossing busy express roads even with the presence of an overhead bridge by the side, and uniformed traffic police officers arresting and charging fines for road crossing.

Battabox presenter Adeola asks Nigerians crossing the roads in Lagos one busy morning why they rather risk their lives crossing dangerous roads than use the overhead bridge.

Listen to the shocking and interesting answers and replies we got.

“A car would not hit my leg, i won’t die this year,” says one woman seriously.

Adeola went ahead to ask people if they were not scared of getting hit by a car or getting killed…

“I’m smarter than getting hit,” one man replies

Watch and Enjoy!
