Coals of fire, dancing on Sambreiro River

Coals of fire, dancing on Sambreiro River

Coals of fire, dancing on Sambriero River, Bubbles of lightening, sitting on plush sofas of gently bouncing waters. It is sunrise, the sun has begun to soar like a kite in the skies, And shadowy pockets of mangrove thickets are bathed with its rising light. The world beneath, rivers and creeks, are still asleep, Oh…

Kill another African Softshell Turtle and you’ve killed another Niger Delta pikin!!!

Kill another African Softshell Turtle and you’ve killed another Niger Delta pikin!!!

“Still, laid the lifeless carcass of a beautiful turtle upon the cold floors of a wooden batcher in Elem-Sangama village, Soku, in the Niger Delta. It was in the harsh claws of a fisherman’s net that it was caught, conquered and dragged ashore by a rustic dug-out boat hewn from the sempervirent mangrove forests cloaking…

Healing from the Bowels of a Stygian Cave

Healing from the Bowels of a Stygian Cave

Within the belly of Omi-Ìwò cave, the hydraulic sound of a crystal clear spring mixed with the whirring calls of resident bats disvirgin the air. A blinding beam of light pierces the torn rock and illuminates a small pool of water within the cave, from which flowed the stream which the people call “Ìwò”. The…

The raging Kuramo Beach and the Area Boys who attempted fishing

As the streets of Victoria Island, Lagos bustled with ‘ponpons’ and ‘hons’ of traffic, so did the great waves of the Atlantic coast rumble against the bleached sands of the Kuramo Beach.

Enchanted by the waters of Nike Lake, Enugu

Enchanted by the waters of Nike Lake, Enugu

I peeped through a hole on a massive tree trunk, and at me peeked a viscous sheet of mud-brown fluid punctuated at different corners by verdant water lilies and rimmed along its banks by lush and verdant forests. The water lilies danced slowly as the waves of the lake gently swirled, glistening in the flood…

Wowed by the sun, sand and sea of the Atican Beach, Lekki

Down poured heavy showers of rain upon the stretch of Victoria Island in Lagos, flooding the lagoon banks on its northern flank and soaking the white sands of its beaches on the southern flank. Yet, the ocean raged as usual, inundating the Naija coastline with its invigorating saline fluids- its Atlantic waters and SE trade…

A Polythene Kite above the coloured skies of Eagle Island, Port-Harcourt

A Polythene Kite above the coloured skies of Eagle Island, Port-Harcourt

 The setting sun blew a blanket of colours across the reposed skies, casting it in brilliant shades of gold and yellow bands set against an enchanting backdrop of sky-blue hue. It’s 6:30pm at Eagle Island in Port-Harcourt and a group of rustic boys had turned a sand-filled creek-side into a football pitch. The fallow stretch…

Ok this is how they fish in the Niger Delta!!!

Two young boys stand at the edge of a gentle creek in the Soku community of southern Rivers State, Niger Delta. It’s about 7am in the morning, and the oil workers had just begun to disperse into the creeks to continue their daily operations in the area. The boys had spotted a calm part of…
