Naijatreks ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’… (Let’s See how much you know about Naija)… Q1. Now What is the Name of this Cave?

In Isarun land, so far away, Hid a timeless orifice, A hole so stygian, inside like the night, A tunnel, ensconced in granite, Air so light, its heart, without life, Temperatures at 40deg Fahrenheit, In past times, gave life, its shelter, 11,200 B.C; a home for Yoruba man, So old, far older than Oduduwa, Alack!Liars…

Healing from the Bowels of a Stygian Cave

Niger Delta from the Window of a Cockpit

“A jigsaw of verdant pieces” From the skies above, peep I into my Niger Delta. Beneath me spreads a romantic mosaic of lush and verdant carpet, broken into giant slabs of small but plush islands encircled by lulling creek waters.

Held by the Spell of Owena Lake

  A young girl is carrying a small tray filled with fresh oranges on her head. A woman beside her haggles noisily with the vegetable seller.

The Wild Angalas of Niger Delta

Standing at the desolate banks of Ekinama Island, the mid-day sun overhead illuminates the mangrove and creeks, revealing the moody poise and ambience embracing the burnt vegetation on the other side. A silenced landscape looms beyond, Staked with a hundred sooth-coated lifeless trunks, underlain by a puffy mosaic of brown and lemon green grasses, Bleached…

The Seven Plunges of Arinta- Let’s go chasing waterfalls!

“Arinta… ever wet ever flowing, the obsession of Ipole people, ever plunging ever splashing” In Ekiti State, SW Nigeria, boulders of quartzite dot the foot slopes, glistening in the excited mid-day sun.

At Assop Waterfalls, they Raced…

  One day a rabbit was bragging to the toad that he was the fastest of all animals. He dared the toad to jump into the water and race with him. Limpid waters leaped and raged from an impressive height above, Orchestrating defeaning belows as they hit a pool below. The toad struggled to hear…
