In 1995, one of the brutal killings reportedly linked to the government of then military Nigerian head of state, Sani Abacha, was carried out. The victim was Alfred Rewane, a businessman and Warri chief who was also known as a major financial supporter of the pro-democracy group, National Democratic Coalition (NADECO). He was assassinated at his home in 1995. Shortly after Mr. Rewane’s death, the police paraded seven young men — Sylvester Iyasele, Saturday Egbeide, Ola Obanuso, Sunday Obanobi, Effiong Elemi Edu, Elvis Iremuma, the former personal assistant and driver to the late activist, and Lucky Igbinovia, who was the security detail to Mr. Rewane — whom it said were behind the murder.

Thirty-five-year old Patience (not her real name) was a trader at Uselu Market, Benin City, Edo State, before it caught fire last December. With a huge debt of almost N1 million, she ran away to Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, in an attempt to escape from her creditor ‑ only to end up in Honeymoon Hotel, where she makes between N2,000 and N5000 daily from commercial sex.
