It was an informative programme which i hope will remove the stereotype Lagos has. It is safe to step down there if you know what you are doing

A fascinating insight into the criminal underworld of Lagos. And all organised by gooners. Laughing

It was a good programme, depicting the chaos that is in Lagos in some areas. What I want to know is where do 419er lads fit into the pecking order?

What we saw here was streetboys in gangs ruling areas and demanding cash. Are 419ers seen as above this because they can work a PC?

They should just arrest every Arsenal fan they find, problem solved. Wink

Where they put them, when they have arrested all the illegal shopkeepers, I don't know. Usual crap where the rich powerful and corrupt are untouchable, and the poor are rounded up in their hundreds, and what property they do have is destroyed. Louis never did get a straight answer when he asked about that.

I though that MC's PR guy that answered all the questions was very eloquent, though I'm sure he'd slit your throat as soon as look at you.

No. The lads are the bottom of the pecking order. Quite often, they willl pay protection money to the area boys so that they can work. It's also on the say-so of the local area boys (through their boss) as to wether or not they can work a certain cyber-cafe. There's some cross-over with area boys also working 419 and vice versa but the area boys tend to be the ones with the guns and therefore have more power.

The area boys can be compared to mafia footsoldiers working for the local crime boss. The lads are like local the businessmen who have to cough up cash or face the consequences.

I tend to SOOI's view. By it's nature Nigeria isn't a well structured society, and muscle will always tend to hold sway. I always envisage Lads as being the criminal element who wouldn't be able to compete on the streets against the 'corner boys' but, of course, everyone pays dues to those area bosses who control everything. However, I do imagine that there is also an element of cross over with some of the bosses controlling 419 closely.

Protection money provides the day to day living expenses but it would be a foolish boss not to keep a close eye on 419 operations that can potentially bring high rewards. I doubt that any Lad could do much in an internet cafe that doesn't get reported back to those in control and betrayal is one way to get ahead. Nothing is more important to a Lad than the friendships he makes at school, and his close old school buddies are perhaps the only people he'll ever be able to trust to any extent. To Lads, strangers are dangerous and they spend their lives avoiding disputes as even small ones can quickly and unpredictably escalate to violence.

Lads aren't all the same and they exist in a society with a lot of corruption where criminality is controlled by very powerful and ruthless people. I supect that's why Lads like to operate outside Nigeria if they can, not from fear of justice, but more from fear of other criminals feeding off them.

I haven't seen the show myself, but I wonder if things are the same way in Ghana, or Senegal for example, as in Nigeria, where corruption is the norm. Or if the exception. Many people I imagine would want to generalize all of Africa as the same, and I know scams can happen anywhere, but you don't get many scams out of, for example Botswana or Kenya.

If you need me to clarify I can, still early morning for me.

Louis should have been primed to ask on the streets about Mr Gomer.

When he was greeted with silence, he would have interpreted it as terror, like when he asked the shopkeepers if they paid money to MC.

I think Louis has a far greater understanding of African culture than he let on in the program. His dad has written a few books about the continent. I read one years ago (but can't remember the title) about the white mischief he equated to African aid and the effect it had on the population. It was a bit boring and I lost interest about half way through. Wink Mosquito Coast and O-Zone were quite good though.

The BBC only gave me a 1:45 clip where the reporter was in a middle of a shotgun fight. Intense. I read the article and I think it was mainly a gist of the video presentation.

there are other places as others have mentioned Cool

a few things that struck me from watching;

  1. we saw a lot of people (as in bottom of the food chain) trying hard to make some kid of a living, running a store etc. - but unlike our pets at least they were trying to make an honest crust despite being preyed upon, my heart went out to them
  2. the higher up the gang structure you go clearly the better educated they seemed to be
  3. I did wonder what was on that TV in the bosses house - that the BBC decided to pixelate out - did it involve goats? Very Happy
  4. very few kids around? wonder if that was deliberate BBC editing?
  5. would make good watching for any baiter who is worried about the ethics of what we do


what did others spot? and yes very informative
