State Pardon To Convicted Public Office-holders Encourages Corruption — El-Rufai

A former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Nasir El-Rufai, on Sunday expressed his concern over the act of granting state pardon to convicted political office-holders.

El-Rufai, while delivering a lecture on the topic “Corruption, and the Challenge of Good Governance’’ at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), said such act of pardon would encourage corruption.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the lecture was organised by “The Companion”, an association of Muslim men in business.

El-Rufai said giving state pardon to convicted political office-holders would encourage many corrupt Nigerians.

He said it would also particularly give the youths the impression that corruption was something good and which people should get involved in.

“Pardoning convicted corrupt persons in Nigeria is sending a wrong message to the young ones,” the former FCT Minister said.

El-Rufai said the nation was undergoing an interesting time, particularly with the insecurity situation in the northern part of the country.

He however said every concerned citizen should push for a society that is good for all.

The former Minister pointed out that the insecurity situation in Nigeria was as a result of the failure of intelligence agencies which were also affected by corruption.

El-Rufai said corruption would always affect good governance when it was not checked, saying it had already affected basic societal necessities, such as electricity, infrastructure, water and security, among others.

He said the root of corruption should be tackled, by improving the welfare package for members of the police force, a good wage for public servants, and punishment for corrupt persons.

“We should make it difficult for corruption to be consummated by reducing cash going round. We should remove what can push a honest person to corruption,’’ the former FCT Minister said.

The President of “The Companion”, Mr Misbaodeen Oyefesor, said the lecture’s theme was due to the association members’ concern regarding the increasing rate of corruption in Nigeria.

“There is the need to check the spread,” he said.

Oyefesor said in spite of efforts of governments at all levels, it seems nothing was happening to check the trend.

On the Boko Haram insurgency in the north, he condemned the sect’s activities and described them as a barbaric group, saying his association has no relationship with them.

Oyefesor called on the political class to avoid violence during elections, while he commended INEC for a free and fair election in Ekiti.

“I want to urge INEC to do the same for the 2015 general elections,” he said.

The association president called on Nigerians to support the government to fight insurgency in the country.

The Chairman of the occasion, Otunba Lateef Owoyemi, advised that studies in how to avoid and stem corruption should be introduced in schools.

“This will help to check the trend from the grass roots,” he said.

NAN reports that the UNILAG main auditorium was filled to capacity by Muslim men and women.

These included the Vice-Chancellor of UNILAG, Prof. Rahamon Bello, and Muiz Banire, a former Lagos State Commissioner for Environment.[NAN]

Fayose Thanks Ekiti People, Promises To Work With Fayemi, Bamidele

The governor-elect of Ekiti, Mr Ayo Fayose, yesterday thanked the people of the state for voting for him and promised to work with Gov. Kayode Fayemi in developing the state.

Fayose spoke at a maiden news conference in Ado-Ekiti after he was declared the winner of Saturday’s gubernatorial election by INEC.

The governor-elect recorded a resounding victory with a total vote haul of 203, 090 out of the 350,256 votes cast.

Fayose, who called on other candidates to support his administration, warned his supporters against making disparaging remarks which may promote violence.

He particularly warned against attacks on the personality of the incumbent governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, saying, “we must respect each other so as to allow peace to reign in our dear state.”

“Governor Fayemi has called to congratulate me and I am determined to reciprocate this humble and kind gesture,” Fayose said.

Fayose also pledged to work in particular with Fayemi and Opeyemi Bamidele of Labour Party in order to draw from their wealth of experience.

The governor-elect also said indigenes of the state would benefit from award of contracts, saying this would boost the local economy and create employment.

Fayose further promised to assist all victims of political violence during the election without consideration for party affiliation. [NAN]

40 Killed In Fresh Boko Haram Attacks On Borno Villages

At least 40 people were killed at the weekend, when suspected Boko Haram insurgents attacked three villages of Chuha A, Chuha B, and Korongilim in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State.

The attackers also destroyed houses, shops and vehicles after carting away foodstuff and livestock, Vanguard quoted sources as saying.

“Some suspected Boko Haram terrorists invaded Chuha A, Chuha B and Korongilim villages of Chibok council of Borno State and killed over 40 persons,” a community youth leader in Chibok, Mallam Yakubu Joshua, who confirmed the incident to Vanguard on phone said yesterday.

“The terrorists injured many other villagers, burnt many houses and made away with our foodstuff. The attack, which commenced at 7a.m. yesterday lasted over five hours before military intervened.

“I and some other residents of Chibok had made several telephone calls to the military, unfortunately they (military) only started bombing the surrounding area of the attack after over 40 members of our community had been killed.

“The lifeless bodies of our people are still littered in the three villages as I speak, but our present fear is that many innocent villagers may be hit by the ongoing bombings by the military.”

Also confirming the attack, Chairman Sector 5 of the local vigilante group in Borno State, Abba Aji Khalil said his group was “already in hot pursuit of the suspected terrorists. Our members in Chibok and neighbouring local government areas are already in hot pursuit of the suspected terrorists.”

Blame Northern Religious Institutions For Boko Haram Insurgency, Not Jonathan – CAN


Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Ughelli North Local Government Area chapter, Delta State, has told the Sultan of Sokoto to blame the Boko Haram insurgency on religious institutions in the North and not the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.

The Sultan had reportedly said that Boko Haram was an offshoot of the injustice meted on the North by the President Jonathan administration.

In a statement by its Chairman, Rt. Rev Diamond Emuobor, at the end of its quarterly meeting, the CAN chapter said: “The debacle of Boko Haram insurgency is wrapped in a Jihadist designation, but deceitfully tagged as a political misrule agitation.

“The Sultan of Sokoto’s address at the national prayer event recently said that Boko Haram is an offshoot of the injustice meted on the North by Goodluck Jonathan’s six years administration.

“When at independence, the North had nine secondary schools compared to the 109 in the South, was the Jonathan administration to blame? What can six years administration do in a nation, compared to the 38 years of Northern element’s seizure of the Nigerian state? Blame the religious institutions of the North, and not the Nigeria state as more northerners have held leadership position in the country than any other region. Could the Almajiris, who are the offshoot of lslamic religion be said to have emanated from the six years administration of Goodluck Jonathan?” the chapter asked.

I Will Beat Up Adeleke When I Leave Office – Minister

Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan has threatened to engage former governor of Osun State, Senator Isiaka Adeleke, who recently decamped from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in a physical fight whenever he left office as a member of the Federal Executive Council FEC.

Adesiyan explained that his position as a member of the FEC prevented him from beating Senator Adeleke during a stakeholders meeting of the PDP at Ideal Nest Hotel, Osogbo in April, this year,during run-off to the PDP primaries in the state.

In his response, Senator Adeleke responded that he was too matured a politician to join issues with the Minister.

Adeleke who spoke through his Media aide, Mr Olumide Lawal stated that the matter was already before the panel of enquiry set up by Osun State Government.

Shedding light on his reason for wanting to ‘discipline’ Adeleke, the Minister told newsmen in Osogbo that he was frustrated by Adeleke and his supporters at the event, but remained calm despite all intimidation, saying “if I had not been a Minister I would have beaten Adeleke to pulp on that day.

“I will one day leave office as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and any time I leave office I will fight Adeleke. He alleged that I punched him on the chest, for God’s sake, if I had punched Adeleke, could he still be moving around.”

He said neither him nor the Governorship candidate of the PDP in the state; Senator Iyiola Omisore was instrumental to the attack on Adeleke as claimed by both Adeleke and his new party, All Progressives Congress (APC).

3 Soldiers Killed As Suicide Bomber Attacks Military Post In Borno

Three soldiers were yesterday killed at a military post in Gwoza after a suicide car bomber suspected to be a Boko Haram member hit the post located near a secondary school in the Borno town. Three other soldiers were wounded in the incident which occurred at 7 a.m.

The suspected suicide bomber came through Wala and Warabe villages on high speed and hit the military post, with deafening sound that rocked the town for seconds, before people started scampering for safety, Mallam Usman Yaro, yesterday told Vanguard in a telephone interview in Maiduguri.

“We were woken up with a bomb blast on the road near the school, some of us started to run for safety while others fled into the school and hill tops of Gwoza.

“I cannot tell you the exact casualties but three soldiers fell on the road side while others took to their heels for safety, as the car that contained explosives ripped into pieces to create a deep crater near the post.

“None of the civilians was killed as people were still asleep when the suicide bomber detonated the explosives that killed him and three soldiers,” Yaro said.

He said the casualty figure could have been higher, but people had been prevented from plying the road by the military for safety since last month.

“Since the blast went off to destroy the military post, with the killing of three soldiers, the road was condoned off up till 4pm Sunday to allow some of the people in the market to go to their houses safely,” he explained.

A top police officer, who is not authorised to talk to the press, but attached to the patrol of Bama-Gwoza road, confirmed the incident, Vanguard reports.

Portugal Gaze at a “Slim Chance” Against Ghana After USA Draw

Silvestre Varela’s injury-time goal sustained Portugal’s hopes of staying at the World Cup until- at least- 1st July, after playing out to a 2-all draw with the USA in Manaus.

Portugal took an early lead through Nani, but Jermaine Jones’s superb goal restored parity just after the hour, before Clint Dempsey pulled the Europeans ahead .

The Seattle Sounders’s forward’s goal looked destined to guide the USMNT into the knock-out phase of the tournament, before Varela dived to meet Ronaldo’s cross to help coach Paulo Bento’s men claim a vital point.

Silvestre Varela Draws Portugal Level With USA With a Diving Header IN Manaus.

Portugal now banks on a Germany win over USA to help them stand a chance of reaching the last-16, but not without beating Ghana in their final group game.

A draw between Germany and coach Jurgen Klinsmann’s USA, who had opened with a late win over Ghana, will see both through.

“It’s clearly not a good result for us,” said Bento, whose side would have done much good to their ambition with a win after losing their opening Group G game to Germany. “The 2-2 doesn’t put us out of the World Cup mathematically, but it does leave us in a very difficult situation.

“Not just because of what we’ll need to do against Ghana, but also because we’ll need a favourable result from Germany-United States game.”

“Now all we can do is to give everything in our very last game and try and make most of the very little chance we have left.”

Belgium Leaves It Late to Seal Last-16 Berth Against Russia

Algeria Set African Goal-Scoring Record With the Win Over S. Korea

Algeria became the first African nation to score four goals in a single World Cup game, as they edged South Korea in a six-goal thriller in Porto Alegre on Sunday.

The Desert Foxes moved up to second in their second game of Group H after a 4-2 win over South Korea.

Islam Slimani ran onto a long ball to flick in the opening goal and Rafick Halliche’s doubled the North Africans’ lead a couple of minutes to the half-hour mark.

Algeria Proved They Can Take a Shot at a Last-16 Berth as Well as Nigeria and Cote d'Ivoire.

Abdelmoumene Djabou’s sidefooted effort made it 3-0, but Song Heung-min pulled one back for the Asians on 50 minutes.

Yacine Brahimi restored Algeria’s three-goal cushion, before Koo Ja-Cheol scored Korea’s second in the 72nd minute.

Algeria- beaten narrowly by Group H leaders Belgium in their opening game- held on for their first World Cup win since 1982 to climb second.

A second defeat would have ended coach Vahid Halilhodzic’s side’s chances of progressing to the second-round for the first time, but will now have to beat Russia in their final group game to advance- a draw would do if South Korea fail to beat Belgium.

“We played very well, very effectively and then it went down a little bit- maybe it was psychological, maybe it was physical- we will have to talk about this,” said Halilhodzic.

“But I think that this was a real feat this afternoon and I would like to congratulate my players.”

Ghana FA Calls For Probing of Match-Fixing Claims

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has called for a police investigation of two men over match-rigging claims.

This follows another another revelation by The Daily Telegraph and Channel 4 Dispatches programme, which allege a Ghanaian club official and a Fifa agent said they could arrange fixing the ‘Black Stars’s’ matches.

“We wish to assure the public that we will not tolerate such misrepresentations and we will seek strong sanctions against such individuals if such claims are found to be true,” read a GFA statement.

Ghana Football Association.

None of those claims, in the meantime, involves ongoing World Cup games, however; the GFA confirms the two men approached the organisation’s chairman offering to purchase the rights to organise friendly matches for the country’s team on behalf of a UK-based company.

“They were subsequently asked to submit their proposal for consideration which they did and was duly submitted to the Legal Committee of the GFA for perusal and advice,” the GFA added.

It happen the two men were filmed in an undercover investigation by The Telegraph and Channel 4 Dispatches programme stating they forwarded a draft contract “including a clause” to allow the bidding company take charge of the appointment of referees for the national team’s friendlies, and also a move to bribe the federation chief.

“We wish to state that the GFA did not sign the contract as we waited for the response from the Legal Committee and that the two gentlemen did not make such corrupt offers to the GFA or its officials,” replied the GFA.

The GFA noted world football’s governing body, Fifa, and the Confederation of African Football (Caf), have already been made privy to the development, while request for investigation of the fellows has been sent to the Ghana Police Service.

Ghana have drawn their penultimate Group G match with Germany, after their opening loss to the USA in the ongoing World Cup.

The West Africans could still progress into the last-16, if they beat Portugal on June 26.



President Goodluck Jonathan might be under a lot of tension right now with all the problems happening in the country, but the number citizen of the country still has time to chill.

He made out time to watch the Super Eagles defeat Bosnia on his flat screen TV in the presidential villa.

Insecurity: Political Leaders Should Refrain From Making Inflammatory Comments, Says Dickson

seriake dicksonGovernor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has warned the political class and religious leaders to refrain from making comments that will incite violence in the face of current security challenges in Nigeria.

He gave the warning while receiving the Shehu of Borno and Chancellor of the state-owned Niger Delta University, Alhaji Abubakar El-Kanemi, a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said on Sunday.

Dickson called on political and religious leaders to take steps that would reflect support and empathy for the security agencies, instead of capitalizing on the situation to gain cheap political points.

He said, “This is a time to unify Nigeria, not a time to balkanise it. The challenges here should not be politicised. We should come together and confront it.

“Our view is that political leaders should refrain from making comments capable of inflaming passions. Our comments should reflect support and empathy for our security agents, and not seek to score cheap political points.

“We talk about the abductions and the killings. All people of goodwill are with the people of Borno in the northeastern part of the country and I believe strongly that Nigeria shall soon overcome this problem”.

Dickson noted that the nation’s constitution empowered governors to maintain law and order in their domains, stressing that the intervention of governors in the Niger Delta brought about the existing peace and stability in the once militants troubled region.

He explained that the only difference between the President and the governors was that the President, as Commander-in-Chief, had direct control of the armed forces.

“As a state that has had its own fair share of insecurity, we deployed our constitutional powers to arrest the situation. Every state has sufficient instruments to enforce law and order. The governor has equal constitutional powers to maintain law and order, just as the President”, he said.

In his remarks, the Shehu of Borno hinted that traditional rulers in the North had become targets of the Boko Haram sect because of the cooperation they had continued to extend to security agencies in the war against terror in the North-East.

The monarch explained that as the first traditional ruler in the North to be targeted by a suicide bomber, he would remain resolute and supportive of any process that would restore peace, harmony and unity to his over 1,200 year-old kingdom in particular, and Nigeria in general.

According to the Shehu, the Kanem-Borno empire has never been conquered by power, and that Boko Haram insurgents are bound to fail, the same way Maitatsine failed in the 1980s.

El-Kanemi noted with dismay that 14 out of his empire’s 59 district heads had been killed by gunmen, arguing that it was therefore wrong for the insurgents to claim that they were fighting for the propagation of Islam.

“It is wrong to force somebody to convert. There is nowhere in the Bible or Q’uaran that we are asked to use force to convert people. They’ve attacked mosques, killed my Imams, district heads, even my own blood brothers”, he said.

“Our view is that political leaders should refrain from making comments capable of inflaming passions

Fayose: I Want To Be Awolowo Of Ekiti State

Ayo Fayose-victoryGovernor-elect of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said his deputy, Dr. Olusola Eleka, will not succeed him in 2018.

He also said industrialisation of the state was not on his agenda because there was no adequate power supply to support such a venture, adding that he will empower the people through contract award to indigenes.

Speaking with journalists in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital on Sunday, Fayose, who admitted that the Constitution did not permit him to take the oath of office more than two times, said: “I have taken one and I will take another one in October. After that, I will find my way to my house.

“Again, I have chosen a deputy governor and I have told him from the beginning that the two of us will pack our load and leave the Government House because I don’t want a deputy that will start playing politics behind me when we are in government and will be distracting me, I don’t want that again.

“So, he is practically here for me to look after certain things for me and ensure that we succeed. When I am going, I will hold his hand and say bye to Ekiti people”.

The governor-elect, while addressing his supporters who visited him after the declaration of the governorship elections result, cautioned them against insulting the outgoing Governor and candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.

He also warned them against fighting any group in the name of politics because the electioneering was over.

“The governor is the leader of our state as of today. He has conceded defeat. He is my brother and forever will remain my brother. He has contributed his quota, he has done his best like every governor that has served and we must continue to give him the necessary respect that he deserves”, he said.

Fayose, who said he owed his victory to “God and common man in Ekiti”, called for unconditional release of those arrested before and during the election because of the political tension that enveloped the state.

He promised to rehabilitate victims of the political violence and compensate those that lost properties because, “It will be impossible for me to come back eight years after I left the Government without their supports”, he noted.

Fayose thanked the Independent National Electoral Commission and security agencies as well as other PDP Governorship aspirants for working to ensure his victory.

He promised to work with Gov. Fayemi and the Labour Party candidate, Mr. Opeyemi Bamidele, for conceding defeat to him, saying “the government belongs to all of us”.

“This is still Ekiti, the homogenous State that speaks only one language. Four years is very small in the life of any government

“Fayemi has called me to concede defeat. We will see him tomorrow and let the public know that we are one. Ekiti belongs to us all. A governor only gets a term and Ekiti will remain. Fayemi lost election today because the only thing that is constant in life is change”.

Fayose added that, “I told you during my campaign that this is Ayo Fayose that is older and wiser and who is ready to work with everybody. Fayemi is my brother and he will forever remain so. He has contributed his own quota to the development of this State

“I also want to state that whoever suffered any loss during the electioneering campaign will be compensated by the government when assume office”.

He assured that his performance will surpass the one recorded in his first term “because I want to be Chief Obafemi Awolowo here. As regards performance, I will surely perform because I have promised the people and this has been part of me”.

To ease decongest the existing roads and reduce traffic, Fayose promised to construct two flyovers in Fajuyi and Mathew street “where traffic needs better control. Also, I will embark on operation tar all untarred roads in Ado Ekiti in two years”.

Fayose also debunked the insinuation in some quarters that Ekiti was poor, saying: “If I could save N10bn between 2003 and 2006 during my first term, you can imagine what I would do now. It is the manager that must be careful in the management of resources”.

He added that as much as he would be taking useful advice from indigenes of Ekiti State in the Disapora, his government will only recognise those who make themselves available in the developmental strides.

Sambo Leads Top Level FG Delegation To Commiserate With Late Arisekola’s Family

Namadi SamboVice President Namadi Sambo yesterday led a top level federal government delegation to commiserate with the family of late prominent businessman and Aare Musilimi of Yourbaland, Alhaji Abdul-Azeez Arisekola Alao in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The vice president, who was in Ibadan yesterday on behalf of President Goodluck Jonathan, extoled the virtues of the late Arisekola-Alao, saying his death was a great loss not only to his family but to the government, people of Oyo State and the country at large.

According to Sambo, the late Arisekola was a devoted Muslim, who dedicated his God-given endowment to the service of humanity.

Praying Almighty Allah to grant him Aljannah Firdaus and grant the family that he left behind the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss, Sambo urged Nigerians particularly the younger generation, to emulate the exemplary life the deceased had led.

“He was a very good man; we have lost somebody that has served Islam, somebody that has done good deeds all his life and we pray Almighty Allah to continue to reward him with Aljannah Firdausi”, Sambo said.

Rivers PDP Sponsors 50 Stakeholders To Brazil, Prepares To Take Over State From APC

Nyesom-WikeThe Supervising Minister of Education, Chief Nyesom Wike, has vowed that the Peoples Democratic Party will displace the All Progressives Congress, APC, from the Rivers Government House come 2015.

Wike made this remark weekend while announcing the sponsorship of the 23 state PDP local government chairmen and other stakeholders of the party to Brazil to witness live, the ongoing FIFA World Cup.

The minister also declared that the APC-led government in the state was comatose, adding that the PDP was only waiting for the appropriate time to mount the saddle of leadership.

He described the sponsorship of over 50 PDP stakeholders to Brazil as an initiative that would soon be copied by the APC in the state, just as he commended President Goodluck Jonathan for ensuring that the state PDP benefitted from such gesture.

He said, “You are not a government in Rivers State, but you are a government in Rivers State. I say so because by the special grace of God, the so-called government they say they have in Rivers State is a comatose government. It is a government that is dead and we will by the grace of God take over the reins of power in this state in 2015.

“It (sponsoring of local government party chairmen to Brazil) is a challenge to them. Don’t be surprise that by tomorrow morning, they will call their chairmen and tell them to travel. They will always emulate the standard we have set.

“We have to commend President Goodluck Jonathan for giving you this opportunity. For some of you, this may have been the first time you are leaving the shores of this country. It doesn’t come easy; it has to do with the man who has a large heart and that is why we say whatever it is, we will continue to give him (Jonathan) support”.

Wike, however, advised the PDP chairmen at the local government and other beneficiaries of the gesture to be good ambassadors of the party and Nigeria and support the Super Eagles to win.

He noted that sending them to Brazil was for them to relax, unwind and come back to Nigeria to prepare for a greater job for the party.

Wike said, “As you are going to Brazil, you are not going there to bring problem to this country. You have to be good ambassadors to Nigeria and good ambassadors of the Peoples Democratic Party.

“As chairmen of party, you work so hard for the past few years. I think it is high time you had some relaxation. When you go there (Brazil), support Nigeria to win. You should relax there because you will come back for more work.

“We are highly elated that it is happening at this time. It is also to allow them to have relaxation and unwind themselves because they have worked hard in the past few years and they are expected to work harder when they come back. There are more jobs to be done starting from July”.

Earlier, the State Chairman of the PDP, Mr. Felix Obuah, recalled that the chairmen of the party at the local government level had requested for sponsorship to travel to Brazil to watch the World Cup.

According to Obuah, “Remember that you once applied to the party that you wanted to be part and parcel of the World Cup and I told you that I will do everything humanly possible to see if I can sponsor one or two of you. I started making consultations with our leaders.

“It is on that premise that I have called this meeting today to give you a response to your request. I want to say to God be the glory that the man that we are all pleased with (Wike) has done it again.

“I want to assure you that our major financier (Wike) has willingly approved my request that the local government chairmen of our great party and some stakeholders should travel to Brazil to cheer Nigeria to victory”.

Responding to the gesture on behalf of the beneficiaries, leader of the local government party chairmen, Mr. Aaron Chukwuemeka, expressed appreciation to the leadership of the PDP for giving them the opportunity to be part of the soccer fiesta in Brazil.

He promised that they would not do anything to bring disrepute to the PDP and the country during their stay in Brazil, adding that they would continue to work for the victory of the party in 2015 by the time they return to the country.

The State government was represented by  the Chief of Staff to the Governor Sir Jude Ejiogu, SSA to the Governor on  Security Barrister Okey Okorocha,Director of Imo Security Guard Chief Donatus Ejifugha, the Chief Security Officer to the Governor and others.

At the meeting it was revealed  how  the Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly Mr Benjamin Uwajumogu queued into the cult war and sponsored one of the cult  groups to assassinate the social crusader Iwuoha with the grand plot to announce to the world that he was a victim of the cult war. Unfortunately when the sponsored cult group came to Iwuoha’s house at Ikenegbu Layout Extension on the 3rd of June 2014, he was not at home. Contacts were made to the Speaker  informing him of the absence of the social crusader and the Speaker  was said to have instructed them to kill anybody around his residence and the deed was done.

Uwajumogu then made contact with the police and informed them of the murder at Iwuoha’s street and instructed them to arrest Samuelson and the wife. The top ex militants also confirmed at the meeting that Samuelson was never a cultist and frowned at his arrest. The shocking revelation surprised the government officials present at the meeting. At the end of the meeting the sum of N1,000,000 was given to the ex militants. The Ex militants demanded for the immediate release of Samuelson Iwuoha and all the arrested ones  and handed over to the government  and the police the names of 4 persons who committed the murder.

Hence the Chief of Staff led the delegation to apologize to Citizen Ikenna Samuelson Iwuoha and others  on the 6th of June   2014 at the Imo State police command. But Uwajumogu has released more money to the police to continue with the illegal detention of the activist. All other persons arrested alongside Iwuoha have been released excluding the activist and his wife. Memwhile the children of Iwuoha have gone on hunger strike refusing food for days now.

20th June, 2014



Our attention has been drawn to a publication in front page and page 2 of Friday, 20th June 2014 edition in Weekend Trumpeta Newspaper captioned ‘Aftermath of Victor Umeh’s Appeal Court Victory, Fear Grips Capt. Ihenacho’s Camp…’.

The offending publication amongst other things, reports that the recent Court of Appeal judgement confirming Chief Victor Umeh and members of Umeh’s Executives as the authentic leaders of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) is leaving devastating effects on the political camp of Captain Emmanuel Ihenacho because Captain Ihenacho is being suspected of aligning with Maxi Okwu faction of APGA that lost in the legal battle.

We have reviewed the above publication and we wish to state as follows:

1. That the publication is completely false, malicious, unprofessional and a handiwork of desperate/sinking politicians who are afraid of the rising political profile of our principal, Hon. Captain Emmanuel Ihenacho.

2. That neither Capt. Ihenacho nor Captain Ihenacho Campaign Organisation (CICO) has any cause to be frightened or worried about the purport of the Court of Appeal judgement as the definitive pronouncements of the learned judges of the Court of Appeal has put paid to longstanding speculations as to who is the authentic National Chairman of our great party APGA through the revalidation of the positions of Chief Umeh, Alhaji Shinkafi and their executives.

3. That though our principal had earlier congratulated our National Party Chairman Chief Umeh and his team on this resounding legal victory won at the Court of Appeal, we also take this opportunity similarly to add our voices at CICO in congratulating Chief Umeh and the rest for this feat.

4. That we shall continue to be solidly behind Chief Victor Umeh and his Executives and will continue to support them in all their endavours to fully reconcile and unify all aggrieved members of our party.

5. That we urge malicious hack writers, spurious propagandists and false alarmists to leave APGA and CICO alone so that we can forge ahead in our cause towards providing qualitative leadership at all levels in our dear state, Imo and the nation at large.

We also wish to re-assure the general public, APGA members and our teaming supporters that we are on ground, resolute, focused and cannot be distracted by any media hype.

However, we once again, request members of the public to always cross check with us for the true position of our principal and CICO on every matter.

Long live APGA

Long live Imo State

Long Live Nigeria

God bless

Press Release 486 Arrested Boko Haram Suspects: Abia Govt Warns Jigawa Lawmakers, Others to Allow Security Agencies to do their Job

The attention of the Abia State Government has been drawn to the statements credited to some lawmakers in the Jigawa State House of Assembly, where the latter had vowed to drag the Abia State government to court over the arrest of its citizens among the 486 Boko Haram suspects arrested by the army while travelling in a convoy of 35 buses in the wee hours of last Sunday morning.
The state government also has noted with dismay the reckless and unguarded utterances coming from some northern individuals and groups pretending to be the voices of the people of the North. These unpatriotic elements for no just cause have deliberately employed all kinds of guerrilla tactics to tarnish the good image of the Abia State government simply because it exposed and alerted the nation including  the international community on the arrest of 486 suspected Boko Haram members by a team of vigilant and gallant soldiers on routine patrol at Aro Ngwa and Imo Gate along Enugu/Port Harcourt Expressway.
As a responsible government, we want to state categorically that Abia State government had at no time ordered the arrest of the 486 Boko Haram suspects travelling in a convoy of 35 buses. Instead, the suspected Boko Haram members were arrested by a team of vigilant soldiers on daily routine patrol at Aro Ngwa and Imo Gate along the Enugu/Port Harcourt Expressway, on the suspicion that occupants of the 35 buses were travelling at odd hours.  The soldiers who effected the arrests merely carried out their constitutional and legitimate duties which are to protect lives and property of the citizens especially now that insurgency is on the increase in Nigeria.
The position of the Abia State government is that the security agencies should be allowed to thoroughly investigate this matter. Those meddling into this matter through their reckless and unguarded utterances aimed at weeping up sentiments for the detained suspects are the real problems of this country. There is no need at early stage to trivialize this matter along religious and ethnic lines. The arrest of the 486 Boko Haram suspects by the army should be seen as a serious corporate endeavour which all well-meaning Nigerians should allow the law to take its normal course. The Nigerian security agencies have the capacity to do a thorough job at the end of the day; they need our cooperation at this moment not distractions from self-acclaimed ethnic bigots who never mean well for the nation.
The threat by some lawmakers in the Jigawa State House of Assembly to drag Abia State government to court if some of its citizens among the 486 Boko Haram suspects are not released to say the least is laughable and diversionary. Their utterances showed that they are lawbreakers and not lawmakers. Instead of the lawmakers to praise the Abia State government for providing the security agencies the enabling environment to discharge their constitutional duties they are busy chasing shadows. We challenge the Jigawa lawmakers to come to Abia to understudy how the robust synergy and relationship existing between the executive and State House of Assembly have ensured the atmosphere of peace and tranquility being experienced in the state today. Abia State government has not breached any law so we are not afraid of any law suit coming from the Jigawa lawmakers or any other group. The Jigawa lawmakers should come to Abia to be coached on the business of lawmaking. The difference is clear to all.
We implore the Jigawa lawmakers, the Arewa Consultative Forum, some individuals and groups of northern extraction trivializing the arrest of the 486 Boko Haram suspects in Abia, to channel their energies on things that will promote the unity of Nigeria not on things that will destroy the corporate existence of the country. All should join hands with the President Goodluck Jonathan-led government in the fight against terrorism and insurgency.

Nigeria VS Bosnia: The Facts

This will be the first ever game between Nigeria and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Nigeria have won four, lost four and drawn once against European sides at the World Cup.
Nigeria haven’t won any of their last nine World Cup games (D3 L6), their last victory was a 1-0 over Bulgaria in 1998.

Vedad Ibisevic netted Bosnia-Herzegovina’s first ever World Cup goal against Argentina. He found the net eight times in the European World Cup qualifiers.
Nigeria’s last World Cup goal from open play came in 2002 (Aghahowa against Sweden). Since then, the Eagles have mustered just three goals in five games, all from dead-ball situations.

Five of the last six goals Nigeria have conceded at the World Cup have come from set-pieces.
No player was involved in more goals than Edin Dzeko in the European qualifiers (14 – 10 goals, 4 assists).
Bosnia and Herzegovina attempted more shots at goal (11) than their opponents Argentina (9) in the opening match.

It is exactly 16 years and 3 days that Nigeria recorded her last victory at the World Cup (1-0 over Bulgaria in France 1998)

Impeachment: Nyako begs in Abuja

Gov. Murtala Nyako of Adamawa

The Adamawa State governor, Admiral Murtala Nyako and his Deputy, Mr James Bala Ngilari were yesterday said to be in Abuja, begging to be saved from impeachment by members of the state House of Assembly.The House, Wednesday accused the Nyako and Ngilari of gross misconduct in its notices of impeachment on the two leaders. The notices, it was gathered would now be served through substituted service.However, this was even as the Adamawa State government yesterday said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had frozen its accounts in all the commercial banks in the country.Gov. Murtala Nyako of AdamawaThe embattled governor yesterday visited former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, begging him to intervene in the political imbroglio.Nyako was said to have visited Atiku along with to the former Chairman of the EFCC, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu and the Chairman, Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Hon. Binta Koji.Sources told Saturday Vanguard that the trio went into a closed door meeting soon after the governor arrived the former Vice President’s residence.Atiku, who travelled to South Africa for the inauguration of the country’s parliament, returned to the country at about 7 pm yesterday ostensibly to also play a fatherly role in the matter.It was gathered that Atiku would beg the legislators to sheathe their swords by saving the jobs of both the governor and his deputy.”Where this fails, we hope that the former vice president will ask his loyalists to withdraw their signatures. Once he does that, the impeachment process will collapse because the requisite number for it to continue will have been lost,” a source close to the meeting said. -

Notorious Boko Haram Terrorist, Mallam Husaini, Shot Dead By Military

A notorious terrorist who has led serial attacks on security personnel, Mallam Husaini has died in an encounter between his group and a military convoy along Jos – Bauchi highway.

Alleged Plot By Govt Sponsored MOSSAD, CIA Agents to Kill Sheikh Zakzaky Fails

Report by Elijah Elaigwu

Around 1 am, Saturday (14th June 2014), six military vehicles comprising Jeeps and Hilux vans, with fully masked combat-ready security personnel stormed Gyellesu area, residence of Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.

The visit came shortly after the Sheikh came back from Hussainiyyah Baqiyyatullah for the Nisfu Sha’aban commemoration, where he exposed plan by the Nigerian government through its western conspirators to assassinate him before the holy month of Ramadan or any day in the month.

Guards at the Sheikh’s residence repelled the attack with shouts of “Ya Mahdi!” that echoed through the night, and in great fear the attackers fired shot and took to their heels.

Commenting further on the failed plot at the Hurras (Guards) parade marking the Nisf Sha’aban yesterday, Sheikh Zakzaky said the attackers were CIA and MOSSAD Members, for they were fully masked with full hand gloves to cover the colour of their skin. “They hold the concept of White Superiority, which they formed through the Klu Klux Klan cult”.

According to him, the initial plan was to lay ambush on his convoy on his way back from the Nisfu Sha’aban commemoration on Friday, but heavy downpour thwarted their evil plan.

He assured that their plan will always be in vain, saying “They came with the intent of executing a massacre, but our strength lies with God, and unto Him we entrust our lives”.

Sheikh Zakzaky reiterated that, the objective of the MOSSAD and CIA operatives and their SSS allies in Nigeria was not to rescue the abducted girls but to silence the Islamic Movement which has remained the only voice contrary to their actions. “They think they can do everything and no expect everyone to keep silence. We can never be intimated into silence. This is why we became their target”.

The Leader further emphasized that the alleged abduction of school girls was a deception and a ploy to pave way for the official entry of U.S. military into Nigeria to actualize their heinous agenda. “Right from the onset, on their entry, the clearly spelt out their mission. Therefore the girls were abducted by the Nigerian government as a smokescreen, only to release some, as escapees, to make it look real”.

We’re Yet To Serve Nyako, Ngilari Impeachment Notice, Says Adamawa Assembly Clerk

Clerk of Adamawa House of Assembly, Mr Francis Gabsenso, has said that he was yet to serve Governor Murtala Nyako and his deputy, Mr Bala Ngilari, the notices of impeachment.

The Speaker, Alhaji Ahmadu Fintiri, on Wednesday directed the clerk to serve the duo with the notices of impeachment.

The clerk, who spoke with newsmen on the development yesterday in Yola, said he was yet to serve the governor and his deputy as they were out of town.

“I went to their respective offices but did not meet any of them,’’ Gabsenso said.

Alhaji Ibrahim Waziri, a former member of the state House of Assembly, told NAN that the clerk was wrong in attempting to serve the governor and his deputy with the notices without the House sitting and adopting the procedures of the day.

Adamawa State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the state House of Assembly of acting PDP’s script by serving Governor Nyako and his deputy, Mr Bala Ngilari, an impeachment notice.

Speaking to newsmen yesterday in Yola, APC spokesman, Rev Phineas Padio, told the lawmakers save their energy as what they were doing amounted to a waste of time, noting that their action showed the blind desire of the Adamawa Speaker to occupy the governor’s seat in the state.

How I Received Death Threats From One Osita Duru, A Supporter Of President Jonathan – Japhet Omojuwa

Wednesday, 18th June, 2014: It looked surreal so I laughed through it all but it was real; I got a death threat from a member of Nigeria’s President Jonathan campaign team called GEJITE group. I had gone to the Unity Fountain, FCT Abuja venue of the daily #BringBackOurGirls sit-out. I got there quite late so most of the Bring Back Our Girls advocates had departed the fountain.

When I arrived the fountain, another group was meeting there. I told the young man who had driven me there to wait while I checked to see if the group in question was indeed the Bring Back Our Girls group because it didn’t feel that way from afar. I got down from the car and immediately identified a young man who had been with the Bring Back Our Girls group. I went back to the car to collect my bag and told the young man driving the car he could leave to pick me up later. I had mistaken the President’s campaign group for the globally renowned Bring Back Our Girls group. I soon realized my mistake just metres from the group so I took a detour. I had since noticed a remnant of the real Bring Back Our Girls group just sitting by the fountain so decided to share a few minutes with them before leaving the fountain altogether.

I had not been there a few minutes when the thug pictured here walked up to the fountain, from the direction of the president’s campaign team. Standing some 10 or so metres away from me, he shouted, “Omojuwa! Omojuwa! Are you the one? Na you be that?” I sensed trouble and was immediately alert to what to do. I made up my mind immediately not to react. He had another man by his side, obviously to serve as a form of support were I to physically react to his threats. The other man looked like he’d rather be somewhere else as he appeared uninterested in what his partner was playing out. The thug continued, “see as you small reach and you go dey abuse government. I go kill you for here! You dey mad! Omojuwa, you dey mad! See this Omojuwa o. we go kill you.” He sounded like someone who had minutes earlier been given shots for mental issues.

I was wondering what could have drive such a man to the point of insanity, enough to lose control and to openly threaten a fellow citizen like that. At the time, I didn’t know who the man was. He was dressed in a poor version of the president’s signature outfit. He looked scared and unsure of himself. His face looked worn out from poverty, beaten by the sun and years of lack. He stayed on one spot while he continued to threaten me. I told my friends to help get him on video. The latter seconds of his threats were recorded. He continued, “Na God go punish o, idiot. I still dey come back o.” *(God will punish you, Idiot. I will be back for you) He then turned away. I laughed through it all, he stopped and made to return, “wait, na me you dey take laugh? You dey mad? Na me you dey follow laugh? *(Wait, are you laughing at me? Are you mad? Are you laughing with me?)

He walked like a poor man who had been handed some cash to keep in his pocket. You could sense that rush of confidence that came from either a shot of heroine or a sudden realization of reward if the threat could be carried out appropriately. He looked very much pitiable, hence my laughter. You could see his forced attempt at walking confidently but he was betrayed by the exaggeration in his steps. He looked like a dump of dirt wrapped in poor clothes. He spoke very poorly so you could see he’d never rise through the ladder of power, certainly not beyond being a future supervisor of other thugs.

He then left to organize more people from the meeting group. I weighed my options; I had just about 7 friends with me, they were at least 70 of them. The same group had physically attacked the #BringBackOurGirls group in Abuja so I knew a physical attack was not beyond them. I decided to leave.

Minutes later, one Osita Duru claimed responsibility for the attack. The young man had been a very harsh critic of the President until help came his way from one of the President’s men, popularly called Wendell Simlin. He once eloped to Ghana over an alleged pregnancy issue but has since been brought back to Nigeria, obviously as one of the thugs seen to be useful to foment chaos as the 2015 elections close in on Nigerians.

I was advised to report to the authorities but that’d be pointless. You report such issues to the authorities where the power of the law is above the influence of men. Only yesterday, soldiers on the order of the President detained an elected Governor, held his convoy and stopped him from moving. It took the intervention of other Governors going in the same direction (Ekiti State) to have the Governor released by the military men who claimed they could shoot him if the need arose. This was an attempt to disrupt the electioneering process in Ekiti State.

Nigeria’s former Head of State and President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo only months ago alleged President Jonathan had a killer squad. Very few people doubt that claim. Those critical of the government and its continued display of lawless, incompetence and callousness must take their security very serious. It may look like civic responsibility to you but they see it as an affront on their birthright to destroy our collective humanity. Over the last few weeks, I have been exposed to a joint arrest by the Police, the Civil Defence and the State Security Service. I have been repeatedly blackmailed. The public threat is off the same page of looking to have people like myself look on in silence while the country gets plunged into darkness, unprecedented impunity and gross insecurity.

PS: My friends captured the images posted here via their video recording. The pictured man had no idea he was being recorded. This post is just for the records and nothing more.

Presidential Committee Confirms Kidnap of 276 Chibok Girls, Says 219 Still Missing

Presidential Fact Finding Committee has confirmed that a total of 276 girls were kidnapped in a mass abduction from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State on May 14, 2014.

The Chairperson of the committee, Brigadier General Ibrahim Sabo (Rtd), stated this at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, while presenting the report of the committee to President Goodluck Jonathan.

Mr. Sabo disclosed that 57 of the 276 girls abducted by members of the Boko Haram Sect escaped, while 219 were still unaccounted for.

President Jonathan had set up the fact finding committee on May 2 to gather information surrounding the abduction and to ascertain the exact number of students abducted amongst other terms of references.

“Mr. President, the committee here wishes to lay to rest any residual doubt whether or not any student was abducted at Chibok,” he said. “As most Nigerians already know, there were some persons who doubted whether in fact any student was abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok. On the other hand, for those who believed that there was an abduction, there were lingering doubts as to how such a number of kidnap victims were conveyed, considering also that information was sparse as to how the raiding insurgents evacuated the victims.”

“During the siege on the school, 119 students escaped from the school premises, before the insurgents took away their classmates.

“A total of 276 students were thus abducted. As of today, 57 of the abducted students have been reunited with their families after escaping along zig-zag transport route taken by the insurgents or by bolting to safety when the insurgents laid for a rest. Sadly 219 students remain unaccounted for,” he said.

Mr. Sabo also revealed that in the committee’s interactions with four of the girls who regained their freedom and their families, the girls were hesitant to discuss the full details of their experience, citing the fear of possible reprisals from Boko Haram elements.

He noted, however, that the committee received the full cooperation of the people and interacted with different stakeholders considered relevant to the fact finding mandate but with an exception.

“The singular exception was a senator from Borno, who after agreeing to an appointment with the Committee, turned around to avoid the meeting on the excuse that he had another appointment and would thereafter be unavailable for one month or so.
“Not that his non-appearance has materially or in any way affected the outcome of the committee’s findings, but the senator’s avoidance of an interface with the committee may well speak to a motive not too difficult to discern,” he said.

The chairman also noted that though Nigerians and the rest of the world have been galvanised to drum up support for the freedom of the Chibok schoolgirls, little could be achieved through finger-pointing.

“Getting the girls out and safely, too, is by far more important than the publicity generated by the blame game that has tended to becloud the issue,” he said.

He said that the committee had begun the process of mobilising the communities, but it was still an unfinished business. He said to achieve a more worthwhile outcome, more time and a more compact team would be required.

The committee also advised that in order not to jeopardise the on-going rescue efforts and also the possibility of compromising national security matters, the report should be treated with utmost confidentiality.
Mr. Sabo noted that this, however, did not preclude government from releasing information that may be useful for a better public understanding of issues surrounding the abduction saga.

In response, the President, who promised that the report would not be shelved, also urged owners of boarding schools in the country, especially those in the North East, to provide at least some basic security for their students.

He noted that the insurgents were able to operate unhindered because there was no security arrangement at the Government Girls Secondary School, GGSS, where the girls were kidnapped on April 14.

“Let me charge everybody, whether corporate bodies, federal and state governments or individuals that own especially in the north east, that if we must keep students in hostels there must be some basic security that should be provided,” he said.

Nyako Impeachment: EFCC Arrest Top Govt Officials in Adamawa State

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested several key officials of the Adamawa State government, including the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) and a serving commissioner, in connection with the state’s frozen accounts.

A source within the commission explained that the action was not a political vendetta but to halt the ongoing looting of the state treasury for which it has evidence gathered in a current investigation.

That investigation, according to the source, began from a petition from within the state which alleged massive looting by Governor Murtala Nyako and people close to him.

Although the EFCC did not make the petition available, the source said the matter involved an illegal department called Special Programme and Project Units (SPPU) which was accused of over-invoicing and contract-inflation.

Our source that the investigation has so far included the questioning and arrest of several key officials such as the Secretary to the State Government; the State Commissioner for Finance; former Commissioner for Local Government (now Commissioner for Higher Education); the Accountant General of the State; and the Permanent Secretary, Ministry for Local Government.

“In the course of investigation, a critical analysis of the Joint State/Local Government account reveals massive cash withdrawals.  The Permanent Secretary of Local Governments made cash withdrawals of over N2billion in 181 different transactions, scattered in tranches of N3m, N4m, N8m and N9m per transaction from the State/Local Government account domiciled with First Bank  between 29th of August 2011 and 2012. He made similar cash withdrawals amounting to over N500 million between March 6, 2008 and March 4, 2011 from another Joint account domiciled in Keystone Bank,” the source revealed.

It was also learned that other officials of the Ministry who allegedly looted the Joint Account include Justina Jari, a Principal Accountant with the ministry who made cash withdrawals to the tune of N600 million from the Joint Account between October,  2009 and February, 2011. Another member of staff of the ministry, Abdulhakeem Mohammed, was also alleged to have withdrawn about N3 billion from the account between February, 2007 and May, 2011.

Two other staff, Mercy Wanje and Jumai Salihu were respectively alleged to have made withdrawals of N1 billion and N160 million from the account as well.

“On a single day, another staff called Haruna Hamali, a principal store officer made a cash withdrawal of over N70 million from the same account,’ the source said, adding that in addition to confirming those withdrawals, the interrogated officials also confirmed that the money was returned to top officials of the state government.

It was on account of those developments and other ongoing investigations that the state officials were arrested, the source concluded.

Contacted, the spokesman of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the freeze order, but declined to comment on specifics.

The allegations of looting as well as revelations of arrests come on the heels of yesterday’s filing of impeachment motion by the Adamawa House of Assembly against the governor and his deputy.

“The swift action of the EFCC in this matter is commendable,” said a newspaper columnist.

“But it all seems to be so conveniently aligned to the political dictates of one Mr. Goodluck Jonathan, doesn’t it?  Citizens, newspapers, critics, whistleblowers, patriots, even foreigners have been sending well-documented petitions to the EFCC since 2007 that it has conveniently ignored.  Some of those petitions involve people at the very highest levels of the current government, such as the Attorney General/Minister of Justice, Mr. Mohammed Adoke, and the Minister of Petroleum Resources, the one with the owl eyes, Diezani Alison-Madueke.  Is the EFCC saying that those two will be under arrest this weekend?”

Another political analyst pointed out that there have been several investigations by newspapers and online publishers such as SaharaReporters and Premium Times that involve looting in various states of the federation, but that in none of them has the EFCC taking an interest, let alone done anything as swiftly as it is doing in Adamawa State.

“While I am in no position to challenge the facts being advanced by the EFCC, it is clear that it is only with specific instructions from the presidency that anything of this nature, and with this speed, can happen,” he said.  “A dog does not need to kill itself: you simply give it a bad name, and people step forth with machetes and bows and arrows.”

NLC Condemns Actions of Security Operatives Against APC Governors in Ekiti State

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), has added its voice to condemn the actions of security agencies on some APC governors in Ekiti State.

In a statement by the President of the union, Abdulwaheed Omar, the union condemns in strong terms the denial of access to Ekiti of some APC Goverrnors notably, Messrs Rotimi Amaechi, Adams Oshiomhole, Musa Kwankwaso and Wammako of Sokoto State.

The governors were on Thursday denied entry into Ekiti State to take part in the party’s last mega rally before the gubernatorial election in Ekiti State.

While the Governor Rotimi Amaechi was detained on his way to Ado-Ekiti and his plane grounded at Akure airport, Governor Oshimhole could not leave Benin to Ekiti because his chopper was denied approval to take off.

The NLC said wondered who gave these orders and on the basis of which authority the orders were given.

“We at the Congress believe the orders are a violation of Section 99 (1) of the Electoral   Act 2010 (as amended) which states that “For the purpose of this Act, the period of campaigning in public by every political party shall commence 90 days before polling day and end 24 hours prior to that day”.

“It is also a violation of their constitutional right to freely move, associate and express themselves. The hypocrisy of “these orders” is laid bare by the their selective implementation as the Ministers of Defence and Police Affairs,  ( both of  PDP),  Messrs Musiliu Obanikoro  and Jelili Adesanya were said to have been  given passage with fanfare.”

“This conduct is not only a tyrannical use of power but an assault on our hard earned democracy and MUST NOT be allowed to stand.”

“We warn that those who undermine the democratic and constitutional rights of others not only endanger our democracy but make a bad investment as whatever goes around, comes around. President Jonathan should ensure this never happens again. The cavalier use of our soldiers, especially in furtherance of a dirty job is nihilistic”

“We also find it necessary to caution against the over-militarization of the state as this has the potential of scaring voters from exercising their civic duty.”

“For the purpose of emphasis, we are not against providing security for voters but soldiers should not be deployed in a manner that suggest that the nation is at war with a foreign enemy”

Security Operatives Embark on Indiscriminate Arrest of APC Leaders, Fayemi’s Supporters in Ekiti State

A joint teams of security operatives comprising the army, mobile police and State Security Services (SSS) on Friday night embarked on the indiscriminate arrest and terrorization of prominent members and supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Ekiti State.

The action of the security agencies is coming few hours to the opening of polls for the governorship election in the state that has been heavily militarised.

A total of about 36,000 security agents comprising 12,340 regular policemen; 3170 anti-riot policemen; 4,280 soldiers; 1,800 Nigerian secret police operatives and 15,000 civil defense personnel were sent by President Goodluck Jonathan to the state.

Abusidiqu learnt that the security operatives invaded the home Director General of Governor Kayode Fayemi’s campaign organization, Bimbo Daramola to effect his arrest.

Daramola who left the premises before the invasion by soldier sent text messages saying that soldiers thoroughly harassed hi 84-year old father.

Similarly, security operatives stormed Iye Ekiti, the headquarters of Ilejemeje Local Government, picked up Mr. Olaiya Popoolati and whisked away to an unknown destination.

Another leader, Chief Kehinde Babatola who was also earmarked for arrest, had his wife picked up when he could not be found at home.

In Epe Ekiti in Moba Local Government area, the agents picked up Femi Fadare.

Also in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, 10 men who were watching the France and Switzerland World Cup encounter at Hilmat Hotel were arrested on the suspicion that they were APC members.  An eye witness who saw them being taken away said the men were virtually dragged into a waiting truck.

Reacting, an APC leader in Iye Ekiti, Chief Folorunsho Olabode, described the arrests as an attempt to intimidate the people of Ekiti so that they do not exercise their civic rights tomorrow.

“We will not allow our State to be turned to a war zone,” he said. Persons being picked up indiscriminately without any offence are an attack on the generality of Ekiti people. And why would it be that these arrests are targeted at only APC members?”


Chibok Abduction: Our Findings May Threaten National Security – Presidential Committee

The presidential fact-finding committee on the abduction of the schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State yesterday submitted its report to President Goodluck Jonathan with an advice that the findings be kept secret as they had the potential of threatening national security as well as jeorpadising rescue efforts.

Chairman of the committee, Brigadier-General Ibrahim Sabo (rtd), who presented the report to  President Jonathan at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, urged the president to treat the said report with utmost confidentiality, saying issues contained in the report were such for which secrecy was needed in order not to frustrate on-going rescue operations as well as compromise national security.

“In view of the detailed security findings and recommendations contained in the report, we advise that in order not to jeopardise on-going rescue efforts and also the possibility of compromising national security matters, we recommend that the report be treated with utmost confidentiality. This, however, does not preclude government from releasing information that may be useful for better public understanding of issues surrounding the abduction saga,” he said.

Confirming the actual number of girls kidnapped and those still being held hostage by the insurgents, he said: “Mr President, the committee wishes to lay to rest any residual doubt about whether or not any student was abducted at Chibok. There was mass abduction on the night of April 14, 2014. During the siege on the school, 119 students escaped from the school premises, before the insurgents took away their classmates.  A total number of 276 students were, thus, abducted. As of today, 57 of the abducted students have been reunited with their families after escaping along the zig-zag transport route taken by the insurgents, or by bolting to safety when the insurgents laid by for a rest. Sadly, 219 students remain unaccounted for.

“Much as Nigerians and the rest of the world have been galvanised to drum up support for freedom for the Chibok schoolgirls, little will be achieved through finger-pointing. Getting the girls out, and safely, too, is by far more important than the publicity generated by the blame game that has tended to becloud the issue.”

On the content of the report, Sabo said: “As most Nigerians already know, there were some persons who doubted whether, in fact, any student was abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok. On the other hand, for those who believed that there was abduction, there were lingering doubts as to how such a number of kidnap victims were conveyed, considering also that information was sparse as to how the raiding insurgents evacuated the victims.

“Details of the circumstances of Government Secondary School, Chibok, remaining open, in spite of the ravages of Boko Haram in the state, are contained in the report of the committee. Also contained in the report is the detailed explanation of the painstaking measures taken by the committee in arriving at the number of students still to be accounted for.”

He further told the president that the parents and relatives of the abducted schoolgirls were burning with hope and wishes, as they pray fervently that their daughters and wards be rescued alive and reunited with their families.

“But there is no mistaking the trauma and deep-seated fear of some of the schoolgirls who escaped from the Boko Haram abductors. The parents and guardians of the schoolgirls are no less gripped by nagging worries over the incident. On May 29th, the committee visited Chibok, where we interacted with community members and leaders, as well as parents and four of the girls who regained their freedom from the abductors.

Boko Haram Members Flee Sambisa Forest Over Killings in the Camp

It appears all is not well in the Sambisa camp of dreaded Boko Haram sect in Borno as two suspected Boko Haram fighters fled the camp to escape being killed by their commanders.

The two suspected members fled the Sambisa camp to Bama in Borno State as leaders of the sect begin the killing of non-conforming members.

It was gathered that insurgents, including those who willingly joined the sect and those that were coerced to join are being killed by their commanders at the Sambisa Forest as soon as they show signs of resistance to operations.

Mustapha Yunus, a youth from Bama said the two that fled are well known sect members. “So when we sighted them [in Bama] we went after them,” he said. According to him, one of them was arrested but the other escaped.

“After interrogation, the one that was arrested confessed that they fled from Sambisa because of threats, while the other one fled out of fear he’d be killed without opportunity to explain their exit from their enclave,” he said.

Residents Panic over Heavy Security Presence in Ekiti State

Residents of Ekiti State have been thrown into a state of anxiety following the heavy presence of security operatives in the state.

No less than 36,000 security agents comprising 12,340 regular policemen; 3170 anti-riot policemen; 4,280 soldiers; 1,800 Nigerian secret police operatives and 15,000 civil defense personnel are currently in the state to verse the conduct of the governorship election taking place today.

While heavily armed policemen and personnel of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have taken over Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, the hinterland is full of gun-wielding soldiers.

The soldiers mounted road blocks in and outside the state, searching vehicles as they passed.

Many residents expressed apprehension over the large presence of the security men.

Some decided to stay indoor while those who opened for business closed shops early. Although, ban on movements officially started at 6 pm last night, most people had voluntarily stayed indoors much earlier.

A resident who craved anonymity blamed the security personnel for instilling fear in the people by shooting sporadically into the air.

The situation, he said, helped in creating “an atmosphere of war.”

His words: “While I want the election to be free and fair, I don’t think it is good for the federal government to over-protect the process of assuring the sanctity of the process. The security personnel in this state now are simply too many, I mean too unjustifiably many.”

PayPal expand payment services to Nigeria

According to reports from Business Day, PayPal is entering 10 new countries this week, including Nigeria, providing online payment alternatives for consumers via mobile phones or PCs in markets often blighted by financial fraud.

Rupert Keeley, the executive in charge of the EMEA region of PayPal, the payments unit of eBay Inc, said in an interview on Monday the expansion would bring the number of countries it serves to 203.

Consumers in Nigeria, which has 60 million users and has Africa’s largest population, along with nine other markets in sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America will be able to make payments through PayPal.

“PayPal has been going through a period of reinvention, refreshing many of its services to make them easier to use on mobile (phones), allowing us to expand into fast-developing markets,” Keeley said.

Once the services go live, customers in the 10 countries with access to the Web and a bank card authorised for Internet transactions will be able to register for a PayPal account and make payments to millions of sites worldwide.

Initially, PayPal is only offering “send money” services for consumers to pay for goods and services at PayPal-enabled merchant sites while safeguarding their financial details. This is free to consumers and covered by fees it charges merchants.

“We think we can give our sellers selling into this market a great deal of reassurance,” said Keeley, a former regional banking executive with Standard Chartered Plc and senior executive with payment card company Visa Inc.

PayPal has operated in 190 markets since 2007 and added three countries – Egypt, Georgia and Serbia last year. Roughly a quarter of the $52 billion in payment volumes PayPal reported in the first quarter of 2014 were for cross-border transactions. PayPal reported $1.8 billion in revenue during the period.

Kefee’s Last Days-Her Colleague Shares Tribute

kefee dead

As Gospel music artiste Kefee passed away last Friday as a result of lung failure, many of her colleagues has been grieved. Her husband has been reportedly said to be hard to console. Her death shuck the entertainment industry. She died after 10days of being in a coma.

One of her colleagues revealed what her last days were like before she died. Here is what she said;

“So sad, this has got to be one of the saddest moments in my life. There should be some corrections though. She was on a flight from Los Angeles to Chicago, but she collapsed and was taken to a hospital in Los Vegas. She died in Vegas but she didn’t die pf pregnancy complications. I was with her the day before she collapsed. She had been in Los Angeles already. She performed at Gospel Faith Mission House of Testimony on Sunday.

The next day, Monday, she was shooting a music video in Hollywood, CA. I was one of her camera guys. She seemed fine that day, and I could see nothing wrong with her at all. She was happy, smiling, dancing, laughing and enjoying herself.

There was a whole crew and we spent the entire day shooting the video. The next day, she was supposed to board a plane to Chicago for what I believe was either another concert or another video shoot, I’m not exactly sure but as she boarded the plane and they took off, she collapsed. The pilots were forced to land the plane in Las Vegas, Nevada and there she was taken to the hospital.

She’s been in a coma ever since and now this. She’s passed and my heart is heavy. I had so much fun shooting her video. And if you could see all the excitement was caused, you would be so happy. It is a sad moment indeed. I just can’t believe this. R.I.P. because you served the Lord well Kefee. R.I.P.

“I get prophetic messages to impregnate my church members” – Enugu Pastor

pastor suspect Timothy Ngwu

The Police in Enugu State have arrested one Timothy Ngwu, the General Overseer of Vineyard Ministry of the Holy Trinity, located at Ihe/Owerre, Nsukka in Enugu State.

Before his arrest on Friday, the self acclaimed Pastor, who said he was obeying God’s command, has put no less than 20 members of his church in a family way.

DailyPost gathered that Ngwu does not spare married women in his evil act.

The spokesman of the Enugu State Police Command, Ebere Amaraizu, DSP, disclosed that “the pastor claims to be obeying prophetic/spiritual injunction to do the will of God, which is to impregnate any one chosen and revealed by the Holy Spirit, irrespective of whether the woman is married or not.

“When the woman is delivered of the baby, the child remains in the ministry with the mother for life”.

Amaraizu added that “Vineyard Ministry of the Holy Trinity, located at Umudikwere, Ihe/Owere Nsukka in Enugu was not known until DSP Gloria Udoka and her operatives from the Anti Child Trafficking unit of the state criminal and investigation department, stormed the place based on the complaint they received from wife of the Pastor, Veronica Ngwu, bordering on sexual abuse of people in the ministry, which has brought about indiscriminate pregnancy among married and single women in the ministry.

“According to Veronica, her husband used to be a well known catechist in Nsukka Catholic”.

It was further disclosed that while acting under the same alleged will of God, the Pastor got his wife’s niece pregnant.

“Some of the members’ wives are now living with him after he impregnated all of them”, the statement added.

Reacting to the allegations against him, the General Overseer stated that he has about five wives with thirteen children, apart from other concubines, who came as a result of the prophetic will of God.

He claimed that he does not do anything with any married woman until full consent and agreement is reached between him and the husband in line with the directives of the holy Spirit.

Two of the women, who had left their husband and are now living with the General Overseer, Calista Omeje, and Assumpta Odo confirmed that they left their husband and went to the General Overseer based on the prophetic injunction to do the will of God.

Calista revealed that she is married to her husband with ten children, and that she was impregnated by Timothy, though the baby later died.

She further disclosed that she also gave her daughter out to the General Overseer to be impregnated in fulfillment of will of God.

Assumpta Odo also confirmed the development, pointing out that she is also married with eight children and that the pastor impregnated her as well as her daughter.


Prophet T.B. Joshua has lashed out at reports linking him with PDP’s Ayo Fayose, stating that he has never met Ekiti State’s former Governor and warning him to avoidfayose tb joshua

Addressing the rumour published by several online news portals that Fayose received ‘blessings’ from the prominent cleric in lieu of tomorrow’s controversial gubernatorial elections in Ekiti, Joshua took to his official Facebook page to debunk it.

“Please, don’t bring my name into politics,”Joshua pertinently stated. “I don’t know you and you don’t know me. Why should you say you have received my blessings to win the election? Please, don’t play God.”

The rumour initially started when Vanguard Newspaper published an article on April 4thtitled ‘Fayose unfolds spiritual strategy’ in which it was reported the former governor was ‘eliciting the spiritual counsel’ of Joshua.

Joshua came out strongly to denounce the article immediately, also using social media site Facebook, where the pastor boasts of over 1,000,000 followers.

“What is this stuff and who could have been spreading the false stories on my involvement in politics? This is not for the glory of God,” Joshua wrote in a post in April.

“If we want to come to church, we come for the salvation of our soul. We can play politics with everything but not with God, the Giver of our faith. I have never met former Governor Fayose before. What is all this?”

With the elections in Ekiti to be held Saturday 21st June 2014 eliciting controversial headlines, Joshua’s name has been connected to Fayose once again, perhaps in an attempt to draw on Joshua’s widespread popularity to gain more public support.

It is a fact the pastor clearly resents as evidenced by his second strongly worded rebuttal.
