preparation time: 45mins

Cooking time: 1 hour and 30mins

Overall time:2 hours 15mins

Step one: Soaking and washing the beans.

Before washing or soaking the beans first you have to Clean the beans by picking out all the stones and other things that are unwanted in the beans.

Put the clean beans inside bowl and add water, leave if for like 30mins so that it will soak well if you are using hand to remove the beans coat/skin but if it's with blender leave it for 1 hour so it break the beans while blending that's if your blender is no longer good blender like it was before.

How to blend it with hand in the bowl put your hands inside the bowl and begin to squeeze the beans.
After removing the skin with blender or with your hands pour it in a bowl pour enough water make sure you wash and strain the beans until the whole skin are gone leaving only the white coat/skin of the beans.

Put the strain beans in bucket,add your red bell pepper, Scotch bonnet pepper, ground crayfish, chopped onion and Maggi together.

Step two: Blending
Carry the mixed peeled beans to where you want to blend it for those that doesn't have blender. But if you have your blender you can mix them together then blend it into batches while blending add little quantity of water in it to help blend fast.

N: I didn't remember to take a picture of that before taking it to where it was blended . But just follow the steps.

Step three: Cooking

Pour in some water in a pot and set to boil add the cooking vegetable oil in the blended mixture, then mix thoroughly with water remember don't add too much water just small quantity so it won't spoil the moi moi after cooking bring out your Moi Moi container either foil, nylon or banana leave oil any one them that you will be using. Pour your grease Moi Moi inside the container of your choice then add your sliced meat, fish or egg but this is optional.
Seal or cover it before putting in the boiled water inside the pot then cover to cook.
Note:if you are using foil to cook put the foil paper in the pot and little water before putting your moi moi, remember to be adding water from time to time so it won't burn.

After adding everything in the pot leave it to start cooking just be checking it from time to time.
I advice you allow it to boil for 1 hour and 30mins by then it will be done.
Food is ready you can serve it with pap, jollof rice,fried rice any one of your choice. Better breakfast come and join me.

Whoever is directly controlling the V2K told me to kill myself.
They told me if I killed myself now it would save the lives of countless others.
Saying the longer I wait to kill myself the more people will suffer.

They are reckless and should have shown the proper media what they had before taking me hostage for 5 years. I know there are many in prison that dont deserve to be there because of this. Your stay in prison will not be fun @battleaxe and friends. People are going to want you dead when they find out what you did. I hope you die a slow painful death. You sick mother fuckers.

Its a terrorist act on American soil while some say its not real or Im a mental case. Many know its real. This is an ignored detrimental to humanity domestic and foreign threat. Ask informed soldiers in the American military what their oath is and tell them about the day you asked me why. Nobody has I guess. Maybe someone told ill informed soldiers they cant protect America from military leaders in control with ill intent. How do we protect locked up soldiers from telling the truth?
