In the minute-long video, the unidentified woman says passengers on the flight to Nigeria would need more leg room owing to the size of their genitals.

 

According to the airline “we expect the utmost professionalism from our staff when they are representing British Airways. We are investigating this video.”

During the video, the woman said: “All right, so all of yous are there getting ready for your Friday night, getting in the pre-drinks, you know, as you do.

“And I’m here, getting ready to go to work, put on a yellow life jacket, point out the exits, hand out chicken or beef, what sort of Friday night is this for me?

“The upside is I’m going to Nigeria and there’s gonna be bare BBC,” in an apparent reference to male genitals, before adding: “I’m joking, I’m joking.”

WIKE TASKS FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO RE-EXAMINE RECRUITMENT PROCESS INTO THE NATION’S SECURITY FORCES

Published by:

The Rivers State Government has expressed the need to take a critical look at the recruitment processes of Security Agencies to mitigate alleged issues of human rights abuses by security operatives.

The State Chief Executive, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike stated this during a courtesy visit by the Presidential Investigating Panel to Review Compliance of the Armed forces with Human rights Obligation and Rules of engagement at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

Represented by his Deputy Dr. (Mrs.) Ipalibo Harry Banigo, Governor Wike expressed the hope that the panel will fashion out a sustainable mechanism to deal with issues of human rights abuses by Security Agencies.

He said it is unfortunate that across the country there have been alleged cases of brutality and human rights abuses by Security Agencies because of the activities of a few bad eggs, noting that in Rivers State the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) has terrorised the citizenry to such an extent that the people are more afraid of SARS than armed robbers and kidnapers.

According to the Governor, the electoral rights of the Rivers People were undermined by Security Agents during the last election and expressed the hope that indicted persons will be made to face the full wrath of the law to serve as a deterrent.

“You will get memoranda from us about the undermining of the electoral act by security Agencies. There is an urgent need to look at the recruitment processes, are they qualified?, are they patriotic?, do they have professional ethics? These are questions that are begging for answers” Governor Wike said.

He said he believes so much in the unity of this country and will not support any secessionist agenda because God in his infinite wisdom has put Nigeria together as one and will continue to remain so. Continue reading
