The Crowd Gets Bigger #Occupy Nigeria#

The Crowd is getting bigger and better. I am impressed my family, friends and even Celebrities stepped out to Occupy the Streets of Nigeria
Ethnic and religious violence in Nigeria claimed 16 more victims, with gunmen killing eight in the north and a mob torching an Islamic school in the south, as a fuel strike added to the deadly tension.
Amid the sectarian and social turmoil, Nobel literature prize laureate Wole Soyinka, one of the country’s most respected voices, warned that the continent’s most populous nation was heading toward civil war.

A two-day old general strike has paralyzed the country and sent President Goodluck Jonathan’s government — already battling a spate of bloody attacks by the Islamist sect Boko Haram — into crisis mode.

In a statement late Tuesday the government ordered all striking workers back to work, warning their employers would enforce a “no work, no pay policy.”
