Breakfast Options: Dodo (Plantain) Frittata (#BreakfastOptions)

Well, we wake up everyday thinking about what to have for breakfast, for those who go to church early they try to see if they can force down one slice of bread (some others fast to church and are very hungry when they arrive). We found a solution for you! Thanks to Matse!!! Your family shouldn't have to eat the traditional bread and tea every morning, we found something new, well, maybe not new but i'm sure most of you haven't seen this before!!!
- Adebusoye Ademola

Think about this, eating dodo and eggs as a single meal packed with the delicious goodness of vegetables, meat, herbs and spices. Yep yep! That’s what I am talking about. A burst of flavours in one forkful.
This was what I intended to do making this recipe. I enjoy Nigerian and western fusions. It gives character to a meal. A frittata is an egg based Italian dish, similar to an omelette. It is very versatile.
My hubby had this for breakfast and he said; “Baby, this is delicious”. I had to wrap up some extras in an aluminium foil for him to take out as lunch. Trust me, this may end up becoming a Sunday morning breakfast recipe in your home.

Now, let me show you how to make this very easy meal.

As usual, I love making meals with easily accessible ingredients that you can find in your local stores or supermarket. Feel free to be creative with your spices, vegetables and cold cuts (ham, bacon, sausages).

1
Get some ripe plantain, slice or dice them if you wish.

2
Fry in hot oil until golden brown or spray with olive oil and bake in an oven (for the health freaks).

3
Slice/dice the vegetables.

4
In a bowl, break the eggs and add all the spices and herbs. Mix together thoroughly.

5
Transfer the egg mix into a bigger bowl and add the vegetables to it, then mix together.
* If using ham, bacon or sausages, fry in a pan and cut into bits to add to the mix. I was in a hurry to give hubby his breakfast and had little time to fry my cold cuts.
6
Pour the mix into a greased pan and spread evenly with a fork.
7
Cover and set over low heat for 10 minutes.
8
Then, transfer to a pre-heated oven and bake for 5 to 10 minutes until it is set.
9
Nicely done, huh?!

Cut out a nice warm slice for yourself.

Don Jazzy and co made money because of our efforts - Eedris Abdulkareem

Nigerian hip hop artist, Eedris Abdulkareem, born Eedris Turayo Abdulkareem Ajenifuja  believes that the success of the new generation artists can be traced to sacrifices made by veteran acts like himself.
He went on to say that celebrities like Don Jazzy, amongst others, only made money because of their efforts.

Speaking during an interview with Hip TV, he said that Mavins boss had been stranded music wise, in London and only had his breakthrough after he returned to Nigeria.

“Without the old artists, the new artists won’t make money, because we fought for the life that they are living right now.
“We put food on their table because of what we fought for, and we are very happy, and that’s why we are legends, you understand. But if anyone of them tries to disrespect, we will put them back to where they belong.

“All of them, from Don Jazzy and all of them, they lived in London, how come the British government never gave them the opportunity, they had to come to Nigeria because we made it happen,” he said.
In some sense, this could be seen as true but is there more to this continuous mention of Don Jazzy’s name?
We will just sit back and wait for whatever follows this.

Security: DSS arrests suspected Boko Haram Terrorist in Ekiti

The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested a Boko Haram suspect in Ekiti State.


The DSS also announced that it had arrested the kidnappers of two German nationals in Kaduna State.
The agency made the disclosure via a statement released by spokesman, Tony Opuiyo.

The statement reads:
Recent operations carried out by the DSS in various parts of the country have significantly degraded capabilities of hoodlums, especially kidnappers and terrorists whose activities have continually threatened the peace.
For instance, on March 20, 2017, a suspected Boko Haram kingpin, Adenoyi Abdulsalam, was arrested in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State by a Joint Military/DSS operation team. An Ak-47 rifle was recovered from the suspect who is presently undergoing investigation.
Abdulsalam was on the final stages of kidnapping some high level targets in Ekiti, not only to raise funds but to terrorize communities in the State. Prior to this arrest, several other Boko Haram suspects had been apprehended in various parts of Northern Nigeria especially the States of Bauchi, Yobe, Gombe, Nasarawa, Kaduna and Kogi.

Typical cases of arrest include that of 29 year Boko Haram member, Usman Ladan Rawa (a.k.a Mr. X) on March 17, 2017 at Lafia, Nasarawa State. Rawa was discovered to have rented accommodation at Lafia for Abdullahi Isa, known for his notorious terrorist actions.
His plan was to establish an effective base to conduct terrorism, kidnapping and robbery operations in Abuja, Minna, and other adjoining States. On March 15, 2017, Nasiru Sani (a.k.a Osama) was arrested at Ahmadu Bello Way, Bauchi. He is a Boko Haram top commander, and discovered to have escaped from Bauchi Central Prison in October 2010 and hid in Maiduguri, Borno State.
Similarly, on the same March 13, 2017, at Jeka-da-Fari Market, Gombe State, Adamu Jibrin was arrested. He operated under the pseudo name of Dantata Sule and served as a middleman for Boko Haram members and their commanders especially the one simply identified as Kanumbu. Suspect affirmed his membership of the sect.

On March 1st and 2nd, 2017, at Ngalda Town of Fika LGA, Yobe State and Nagazi area of Adavi LGA, Kogi State, Abdulazeez Umaru and Nuhu Usman a.k.a Okadigbo were respectively arrested. Umaru, who has confessed his membership of the Boko Haram sect was arrested by the Service in concert with the local vigilante. Preliminary investigations have revealed the participation of Usman in several deadly insurgent attacks in Kogi State.

While the Service has ensured a relative peaceful environment in the month of March, it is instructive to note that it recorded many successes in the month of February as can be seen from its operations during the period.

On February 2, 2017, one Suleiman Yahaya who had been on the wanted list of security agencies was arrested during a raid in Potiskum LGA, Yobe State, for his role in several terrorist attacks in Borno and Yobe States. Similarly, on February 7, 2017, in Kumbotso LGA, Kano State, Mohammed Isyaka (a.k.a Maikwano), was also arrested for his complicity in Boko Haram attacks in the North East.
Meanwhile, on February 9, 2017, at Ayingba, Dekina LGA of Kogi State, the trio of Uwais Abubakar, Abdullahi Umaru and Mukhtar Suleman who are Boko Haram terrorists, were arrested by the Service’s tactical team.

Suspects were actively involved in series of attacks on select targets in Kogi State such as the Federal Polytechnic Idah, Kogi State University and the newly constructed Kogi State Revenue House, Lokoja.
Ali Bukar and Mustapha Umar were also arrested on February 17, 2017 at Zaria Road, Kano State for their involvement  in Boko Haram activities. Abdullahi Isah, an indigene of Isari LGA of Yobe State was equally arrested at the Lafia Modern Market, Lafia, Nasarawa State for gun-running to raise funds for Boko Haram operations. He was a suspected armourer of the sect.
In furtherance of sustaining its operations against Boko Haram during the month of February, the Service on February 28, arrested a Boko Haram Commander and food supplier, Ibrahim FULATA and his associates – Shamsudeen Aliyu, Zaharadeen Ibrahim and Suleiman Abubakar at Zaria Clinic, Dustsen Tanshi  area of Bauchi LGA of Bauchi State.

Determined to sustain the prevailing peace and stamp out all cases of kidnap in various States where it is taking root, the Service staged vigorous operations which recorded successes.
The duo of Ibrahim Sule and Bello Shehu were arrested on March 13, 2017 at Nasarawa town, Nasarawa LGA of Kaduna State for their suspected involvement in the kidnap of two German nationals – Dr.Peter Breuning and Johannes Brehinger – on February 22, 2017 at Pahkogo, Kagarko LGA, Kaduna State. They are being questioned to establish other possible members of the network.
On February 9, 2017 at Umuahia, Abia State, Tochukwu Prince Johnson and Madubuike Christopher Iromaka were arrested for alleged threat to abduct two prominent businessmen in the State namely: Obioma Okorie and Chidozie Ohabuchiro. Also on February 12, 2017, a notorious local bandit, Saidu Musa was arrested in Makarfi LGA of Kaduna State for terrorizing people of the area. On arrest, a pump action gun and 23 cartridges were discovered in his vehicle, Toyota Carina KRD 523 EZ (Lagos).

In another development, on February 3, 2017, Ashiru Abubakar, a suspected kidnapper, was arrested at Maraban Jos Junction, Igabi LGA of Kaduna State. He was a member of the notorious gang that kidnapped 11 travelers along Kaduna-Abuja road, where they extorted several millions of naira from them to buy their freedom.

The Service also arrested some kidnappers in Kaduna, Kogi, and Plateau States. While Bingel Mohammed, Kabiru Lawal, Dahiru Lawal and Shagari Usman were arrested in Maigiginya Village, Igabi LGA, Kaduna State on February 4, 2017, Lawal Abdullahi, a notorious kidnap kingpin was also arrested on February 6, 2017 at Elka, Ohizenyi Okehi LGA of Kogi State.
On February 24, 2017, at Bosso LGA, Niger State, Abubakar Mohammed a.k.a Baba Dogo, a notorious kidnapper/cattle rustler was arrested. On the same date at Ankpa Town, Kogi State, 30 year suspected kidnapper, Mallam Idris Baba was shot dead while trying to evade arrest.

Earlier on January 28, 2017, in Wudil, Wudil LGA, Kano State, the Service arrested Ahmed Muhammed, a high profile Boko Haram terrorist, who kept custody of many persons abducted by sect members during their operations. On January 31, 2017, one Yusuf Hayatudeen, a suspected terrorist was arrested by the Service at Oziokutu Adavi LGA, Kogi State. Subject had threatened to bomb a Radio House in Okene, Kogi State before his apprehension.

The Service wishes to state that the successes recorded in these mop up operations were made possible by the cooperation and support of patriotic citizens and other stakeholders who volunteered useful information in this regard. While the Service pledges to sustain this tempo by undertaking similar operations in many more areas, there is no doubt therefore that the zeal towards ensuring safety of life and property will be dutifully maintained.
