Vigilance can report that as United Nations humanitarian agencies and partners are extending aid to hundreds of thousands of families on the run in northern Iraq from armed militants, a senior UN official is calling for an immediate stop to what she termed an “emerging cultural cleansing.”


"Whilst the Hausa and Fulani people of Nigeria work on the gullible minority  ethnic nationalities in their midst to clamour for the return of power to the North, I 'd like to ask: Why can no king/Oba in the South become the spiritual leader of the muslims in Nigeria?"

Nigeria's new Inspector General of Police Suleiman Abba...but who is he?

The Nigerian nation has just appointed a new Inspector General of Police: How about that and why is that a cause for celebration? Bo na de same one and toro, if I may be allowed to use a popular Nigerian expression in pidgin English, meaning it's just another new wine in an old bottle.


Much debate has raged recently concerning the motives, nature, and aims of the Islamic State (IS) group, formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Broadly, two viewpoints have emerged regarding the said group: The first sees the IS group as a mediaeval phenomenon, very much like many other Islamist movements, only worse. According to this view, recent actions by the IS group can be traced back to the Dark Ages. The second view considers the IS group to have much more in common with modern totalitarian ideologies and governments, such as Lenin’s  Bolsheviks in Russia or Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, partly because the IS group has proved itself adept at the use of modern techniques and technology in order to further its cause.

It’s another normal day and without even thinking about the magic of it all, I start the usual activities over breakfast. A quick check to see if there are any urgent emails; followed by a quick look at a couple of websites to pick up the latest news headlines, a quick glance at my LinkedIn and Facebook pages, and finally a quick scan to see if there has been any interesting Twitter activity overnight.


Recently security vendor McAfee released a piece of research which revealed that cybercrime costs the global economy £266 billion each year. While this is a very big number to pin on the annual economic impact of cybercrime, is there a possibility we will look back two years from now and realise that it was just the tip of the cybercrime iceberg?


Newly-elected Chairman of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), Pauline Norstrom, has marked her appointment with a focus on raising stakeholders’ awareness of the value of quality and innovation over price, Vigilance can report.
