    Hi: Members of The Nigerian Aumini of the Hailselassie Imperial Academy. I would like to communicate further with you guys because I am one of the graduates of Haileselassie I Millitary Academy, Hara (11th Course).

  5. Good afternoon,

    I thoroughly enjoyed what I have read today. I somehow managed to stumble across your blog while i was researching the kafanchan riots 1987. I’m the Nigeria analyst for a London based publication ‘Think Africa Press’ http://www.thinkafricapress.com and would love to trade ideas and knowledge. send me an email with your details. lagun.akinloye@thinkafricapress.com

    I’m having difficulty getting th full layout of your nigerian pictures (I’m using Hotmail (latest version). The pictures are generally cropped on the right hand side and I can do nothing to get the full picture.

    • beegeagle says:

      Hmn, strange.

      Viewed from here, the photos are properly positioned at the top of the page. Even if cropped, they should become magnified when clicked on.

      Perhaps the problem has to do with accessing the website via hotmail. Maybe you should get to google and search for “beegeagle’s blog”. That should take you direct to the homepage.

    I just stumbled upon your website and liked the collection of various stories on your blog, hence I followed. But I also belong to another online community where we would frequently post links and or stories we read from on the internet. Not changing the content in anyway. Hence I need to know if you consider this against your rules so as not to break them.

    The online community to which I belong is the Nigeriavillagesquare

    On the strength of your willingness to respect intellectual property rights, NAR, you have my consent.

    Coincidentally, one is a passive member of NVS myself and some of the more recognisable members out there such as Suya, Ayo Akinfe and good ‘ole Max Siollun are online friends of mine.

    Unfortunately, the demands of editing and adminisitering this blog, not to mention putting forward coherent responses to questions have made it impossible for me to post articles with any degree of regularity in any of the online communities to which I belong such as Cybereagles, Skyscraper City, Military Photos and Nigerian Village Square.

    Welcome to Beegeagle’s Blog

  10. NAR says:

    Good to hear from you sir. Indeed I will certainly respect your intellectual property rights. As one who has started and abandoned blog and blog I understand the efforts required to keep this up and running, When I post content from here, I will try to always state it came from here. In most cases I post a link that take people to the source so they know where information is coming from.

    NVS is a big family, yes I read Max Siollun and his in dept Nigerian History pieces. I also try to follow things at Skyscraper city as well!


  11. M. Wenzl says:

    Do you offer analysis of the articles you post?

    Many thanks.

  12. beegeagle says:

    For each post, there is a flurry of comments from Beegeagle and co-debaters – some eliciting between 25 and 70+ ripostes which encapsulate IN-DEPTH analyses.

    Open a thread and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Chances are that as you scroll down, you shall find many informed comments, insights and analyses.

    Beegeagle’s Blog is very heavy on unique and home-grown insights and perspectives on Nigerian, African and global defence and strategic matters – stemming from 25 years of meticulous observation and practical experience.

    Try the thread – “RICHEST AFRICAN COUNTRY….”

  17. Owi says:

    hello Beegeagle.
    My name is Owi and I have followed your blog for quite a while now. I consider myself be somewhat of military enthusiast but come nothing close to you in terms of the technical knowledge of the Nigerian armed forces. i think I do much better with history, politics and international relations.

    I am sure you will be thrilled to know that Eeben Barlow ( the founder of executive outcomes) has a personal blog that he updates about once a month. Considering the extensive insight that he has into covert security operations on the African continent, you might have a filled day going through his posts. the link is: http://eebenbarlowsmilitaryandsecurityblog.blogspot.com/.

    You are doing a great job on here … cheers

  18. Anthony says:

    If i must confess, this website educates me a lot about the Nigerian military and the security situation of the country. We need to put more effort in making the country crime free. how do we achieve this please?
