Impeachment: Put A Stop To Legislative Recklessness In Nasarawa, Edo Now, Falana Tells Jonathan


Al-Makura-OshiomholeLagos lawyer and rights activist, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), has asked President Goodluck Jonathan to put an end to what he described as legislative recklessness following the move by Peoples Democratic Party lawmakers of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly to impeach the governor of the state, Tanko Al-Makura.

Falana said on Saturday that the wave of impeachment in some parts of the country was part of the “planned manipulation” of the ruling PDP to “rig the 2015 general election”.

He added that the Presidency could no maintain its innocence in the “legislative recklessness” currently on display in Nasarawa State.

The PDP-dominated Nasarawa Assembly in a sitting somewhere in Karu, close to Abuja, the nation’s capital on Wednesday, had passed a resolution asking the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Suleiman Dikko, to dissolve the investigative panel he earlier set up to investigate the impeachment allegations levelled against the governor.

However, many have condemned the call by the House of Assembly, saying once the Chief Judge set up a panel as required by law, the process could not be aborted except by a valid court order.

This much was confirmed by the Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who called on Jonathan to intervene in the developments in Nasarawa State as they portended grave implication for the stability of the country.

His statement reads in part, “It is no longer a secret that the wave of impeachment sweeping across the nation is part of the planned manipulation of the 2015 general election in favour of the ruling party.

“In the process, the dubious agenda of turning Nigeria into a one party state will be achieved.

“In view of the potential danger which the trend portends for political stability in the country the illegality which has characterised the ongoing impeachment of the governor of Nasarawa State, Governor Tanko Al-Makura, must be halted by President Goodluck Jonathan forthwith.

“It is no longer sufficient to distance the Presidency from the legislative recklessness being exhibited with impunity by the legislators. If the Presidency is not involved in what has become recurrent illegalities who stopped the Edo State police command from arresting four suspended legislators from conducting mock proceedings of the Edo State House of Assembly? Why is the Edo State police command helpless when both the high court and the court of appeal have ordered the suspended legislators to desist from treating court orders with disdain?”

He faulted the proceedings of the Nasarawa Assembly, which had been sitting at a venue outside the chambers of the House of Assembly in Lafia.

Guber Poll: Osun Will Be Well-Policed, Says Jonathan As He Dares Political Thugs To Attempt To Disrupt Process


Jonathan-Sambo-and-Osun-OmisorePresident Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday assured the people of Osun State that the August 9 governorship election would be peaceful.

Speaking tough, the president also dared those parading themselves as political thugs to attempt to disrupt the election and risk being dealt with by security operatives, who he insisted, would be deployed in the state for the election.

The president, who said this at the Peoples Democratic Party governorship campaign grand finale in Osogbo City Stadium, added that despite protests by some parties, he would make sure that Osun State was ‘well-policed’ during the election.

Jonathan, who walked round the pitch, alongside other PDP leaders, waving at a mammoth crowd of supporters, who had filled the about 30, 000-capacity stadium before his arrival, also restated his commitment to making sure that the votes of Nigerians count.

He said, “Some parties are even going to court saying that on the election day all the security operatives should be removed. We will recall that during the 2011 election, 10 youth corps members were killed. We will not allow that to happen again. So anybody to think that government would fold its hands and allow miscreants to take over the streets of Osun State, and cause havoc, that person is deceiving himself. We will make sure that Osun State is properly policed.

“Anybody who calls himself a thug or militant whatever name you call yourself, if you find himself in Osun State that day, be rest assured that the security operatives will deal with you according to law. Because we must show the world that we are capable of governing ourselves and that we are able to elect who will rule us.

“Our votes must count. One man one vote; one woman on vote; one youth one vote”, Mr. Jonathan said.

The president added that the Federal Government needed maximum cooperation from the Osun State Government to bring development to every part of the state and boasted that the PDP was the only party in Nigeria that had the credentials of a democratic party.

“Omisore and the government at the centre will work together to develop Osun State. All we need from you is your votes. We need you to elect Omisore on August 9. Bring Omisore to us as your governor and leave the rest for us”, he said.

The President, who had earlier congratulated Vice-President Namadi Sambo on his birthday which coincided with the rally, urged the people of Osun to ensure that PDP wins the governorship poll next weekend as a birthday gift to Sambo, who he called ‘my younger brother’.

To further express his assurance that the PDP would win the election, Jonathan referred to Omisore and his running mate, Adejare Bello, as governor and deputy governor-in-waiting respectively.

Sambo had said the mammoth crowd that received them in Osogbo was a sign that “the people of Osun State are ready to take back their mandate” just as he described the rainfall that ushered them to the state as a sign of divine endorsement.

Also speaking at the rally, the National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, said the PDP had patiently waited for the Osun election, saying it’s an opportunity for the party to take back its mandate that was taken away through the court.

Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum and Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio, who boasted that he predicted Ayodele Fayose’s victory in Ekiti State two months ago and that there would be no litigation to his emergence as governor-elect, re-assured the people that the PDPGF has assembled a team of Senior Advocates of Nigeria to defend their votes in court should the need arise.

Prominent among chieftains of the party at the campaign were the vice president, Nnamadi Sambo; deputy speaker, House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha; PDP national chairman Ahmed Adamu Muazu; chairman of BoT Chief Tony Anenih; chairman, Godswill Akpabio, and a number of his colleagues; Chief Bode George; Femi Fani-Kayode, ex-Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole; Ayodele Fayose; Otunba Alao-Akala, Chief Buruji Kazamu, and a former deputy governor of Osun, Erelu Olusola Obada.

U.S-Africa Summit: Jonathan Leaves For Washington Today


UN-GENERAL ASSEMBLY-US-NIGERIAPresident Goodluck Jonathan will on Sunday leave for Washington DC to participate in a three-day United States-African Leaders Summit.

This is contained in a statement issued on Saturday in Abuja, by Dr Reuben Abati, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.

APC Raises Alarm Over PDP, INEC Collaboration To Rig Osun Guber Poll


Lai-Mohammed2304The All Progressives Congress, APC, has alerted Nigerians to a devilish plot involving an unnamed unscrupulous INEC official and PDP stalwarts to rig next weekend’s gubernatorial election in Osun State.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Saturday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said under the plan, some INEC IT staff allegedly handed over the entire electoral register for the state to a Special Assistant to a top PDP national official, with a view to manipulating it to disenfranchise many voters. The PDP is yet to react to this allegation.

“For those who may see this as outlandish, they should recall that an INEC official tampered with the voters register used during the last gubernatorial election in Anambra State to remove the names of many voters”, it said.

APC said the plan to tamper with the electoral register for Osun, coupled with INEC’s delay in issuing Permanent Voters Cards to registered voters, especially those who are APC members in the state, highlight the desperation of the PDP to win the forthcoming governorship election at all cost.

“The truth is that the PDP knows it cannot win a free and fair election in Osun state. Everything so far points to the fact that our party will win by a landslide if the election is free, fair, credible and transparent. In fact, a highly-credible opinion poll carried out by the globally-recognized TNS-RMS shows that the APC leads among voters in the state by 73%, compared to a paltry 19% for the PDP.

“Apparently stunned by the reality on the ground, as against the propaganda by the PDP, the party’s candidate, Iyiola Omisore, quickly conjured his own opinion poll, purportedly carried out by USAID, showing that he is leading the APC candidate and incumbent Governor Rauf Aregbesola.

“Fortunately, USAID has denied carrying out any opinion poll in Osun State, thus putting a lie to the PDP’s claim. There is no better indication of desperation than this”, the party said.

APC, therefore, called on all the good people of Osun state in general and its party members and supporters in particular, to be very vigilant in other to thwart the evil machinations of those who are averse to credible and violence-free elections.

“As we have said repeatedly, we ask for nothing beyond a level playing field for all the candidates in the Aug. 9th election in Osun State. Also, we want all registered voters to be able to exercise their franchise without hindrance, since popular participation is the bedrock of democracy.

“If the voting is done in the best tradition of free, fair and credible elections, whoever wins or loses will have no problem accepting the outcome,” APC said.

Okorocha Lacks ‘True Igbo Spirit’, Says APGA National Chairman


Okorocha vs UmehThe decision of Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha to abandon the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), on whose platform he won election, has made him to become a drowning politician, the national chairman of APGA, Chief Victor Umeh has said.

Speaking with journalists in Umuahia, Abia State capital, Umeh said Okorocha embarked on a “misadventure of leaving APGA for the All Progressives Congress (APC)”.

He also closed the door against any attempt by Okorocha to return to APGA, saying the Imo governor had become a political liability.

“Okorocha has been swallowed by his misadventure and it is normal that he will be saying anything. Of course, he has been sending people to me that he will like to return, but you see him quickly refuting it”, he said.

The APGA national chairman said he had always said no to Okorocha’s clandestine request to return to the party that made him, but because he “did not behave well, we can’t entrust him with APGA again to do anything”, adding that it was now obvious that Imo people have rejected Okorocha, hence his desperation to return to APGA in order to repair his battered image.

Umeh dismissed Okorocha’s rescue mission agenda as a ruse, noting that the Imo governor lacked the Igbo spirit to implement such a programme.

“We have capable people that can rescue Imo State. He said he is on a rescue mission but rather, he imprisoned Imo State. We have capable people in Imo who will rescue Imo people, people with true Igbo spirit that is lacking in him”, the APGA leader said.

He said that Okorocha’s brand of politics was against the interest of Ndigbo, “he’s not somebody you can describe as a proud Igbo man”, he added.

According to Umeh, APGA would in 2015, take control of Imo and hold Okorocha “accountable for his misdeeds”, and pay him back in his own coins for betraying the party after what he called “strenuous efforts” to make him governor.

Umeh also vehemently denied the insinuation that he collected $2 million to re-admit Okorocha in APGA, “I have proved myself in Nigeria politics as somebody who can’t be purchased by anybody no matter how much money you have”.

He added: “I am so focused and concerned on the affairs of this party and Igbo people and if you want to achieve that, you will not allow money to influence you”.

My Wife’s Last Wish – Late Dora Akunyili’s Husband


akunyili-husbandAhead of the burial of her remains on August 28, it has been revealed that the last wish of the late former Minister of Information and Communications, Prof. Dora Nkem Akunyili, was the release of the abducted Chibok.

Her husband, Dr. Chike Akunyili, made the disclosure while briefing the media on the burial arrangements of his wife.

His words: “Akunyili’s last wish was the release of the abducted girls at chibok by the insurgent in Borno state and she was particular about the insecurity ravaging the country”.

While announcing the burial arrangement for the late wife on Saturday, Dr Akunyili announced that the late former Director General of National Agency for food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), would also receive another post-humous award from the United States of America on November 18, 2014 for pushing Pharmacy to a greater height.

The funereal of late Prof Akunyili, which would hold at Madonna Catholic Mission at Agulu, Anambra State, will be led by Cardinal John Onaiyekan.

Dr Akunyili told reporters that though his wife had died, her soul is still hovering around, adding “my heart is still heavy over her death”.

He said since his wife died, there had been a mass service at Enugu for her every Friday because she was prayerful.

“What has been happening since she died had been mysterious, we have never had any problem in everything we have planned”, he said.

According to Dr Akunyili, his late wife surrendered her green card for the love of her country, adding that she did not want disintegration of Nigeria but wanted a homogenous country.

According to him, “my wife said I will serve Nigeria with the last drop of my blood and as a result the federal government gave her all the support in everything she did”.

Tambuwal, Ihedioha’s Posters For President, Vice-President Spring Up In Abuja


PHOTO CREDIT: PREMIUM TIMES

In what appears as a surprise combination for the 2015 general election, posters of the Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal and Emeka Ihedioha respectively, as President and Vice Presidential aspirants under the banner of All Progressives Congress (APC), Saturday, sprung up in major streets of Abuja, the nation’s capital.

Although both men are members of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, those behind the posters said “We have decided our choice 2015”.

But the spokesman for Mr. Tambuwal, Imam Imam, issued a statement last night distancing the speaker from the emergence of the presidential posters, just as he urged those behind it to beware of the nation’s laws as regards premature political campaigns.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has consistently warned politicians and political parties against abuse of campaign laws in the country, especially with regards to the 2015 election.

The statement by Imam reads in part: “While we thank them for deeming us fit for elective office in the country, let it be known that since the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has not given the go-ahead for those interested in elective positions to start mobilisation, it is inappropriate for any person or group to print campaign posters and have them placed in strategic areas all over the country.

“Laws of the Federation are meant to be obeyed by the high and mighty. The Honourable Speaker will make known the direction he will take with regards to his political future at the appropriate time”.

The 2010 Electoral Act (as amended), stipulates that campaigns should commence 90 days before any election.

Section 99 (1-3) of the Electoral Act says: “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.

“A registered political party which through any person acting on its behalf during the 24 hours before polling day”.

“Procures for publication or acquiesces in the publication of an advertisement in a Newspaper for the purpose of promoting or opposing a particular candidates, commits an offence under this Act and upon conviction is liable to a maximum fine of N500, 000”.

By-Election: We’ve Enough Qualified Candidates, We Don’t Need Ribadu, Says Adamawa PDP


PDPThe Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa State says it is not interested in wooing or begging any one to fly its flag in the by-election to replace impeached Governor Murtala Nyako.

The party was reacting to media reports that it was wooing former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nuhu Ribadu, to join the PDP and contest the election on its platform.

The state PDP chairman, Chief Joel Madaki, who spoke while addressing party stakeholders at Government House, Yola, on Friday, boasted that the party has many qualified people in its ranks to win the governorship poll.

He, however, declared the PDP’s doors open to all indigenes of the state interested in joining it.

He promised equal treatment for all.

He insisted that the PDP was not shopping for a governorship candidate.

Madaki said: “PDP is a fully loaded party with experienced politicians who have held many laudable national positions in different capacities and who have been tried and tested to occupy any office hierarchy in the country.

“Adamawa State PDP is blessed with an array of qualified politicians; there is no need to bring somebody from outside the party to run on its ticket for the 2015 race.

“We are not wooing or begging anyone to be our governorship candidate. Are there no qualified candidates among all of you sitting here? It is an insult to all of us to say that we are wooing any person to be PDP governorship candidate.

“I want to make it clear that our doors are open for people to come in. We will give those coming equal treatment and a sense of belonging”.

Madaki commended acting governor Umaru Fintiri and members of the state assembly for restoring what he described as “PDP’s stolen mandate” by removing former governor, Murtala Nyako.

2015: PDP Group Urges Jonathan, Mu’azu To Caution Wike Over Utterances


GEJ-WIKEA group known as the Rivers PDP Third Force, has called on President Goodluck Jonathan and the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Adamu Muazu, to call the Minister of State for Education, Nyesom Wike, to order over his utterances on the 2015 governorship election in the state.

The group faulted Wike’s claim that he remained the only politician that could win the 2015 election, insisting that the minister must be stopped from contesting the poll.

The minister had during an interaction with journalists in Port Harcourt, the state capital, last week, boasted that he would win the 2015 governorship election, if he decided to throw his hat in the ring.

A statement by the Secretary-General of the socio-political group, Mr. Oprite Amachree, said posterity would hold the PDP national leaders accountable, should Wike be allowed to breach the political order in the state, since he (Wike) came from Ikwerre, the same area the incumbent governor, Rotimi Amaechi, hails from.

The group said, “We urge the National Leader of the PDP, President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, to be wary of the new seed of destruction in PDP (Nyesom Wike), who has clearly shown with his utterances and unrestrained ambitions that he cannot be tamed.

“They (PDP leadership) must put an end to this endless hair-splitting in Rivers PDP and stop Wike from his inordinate ambition. Otherwise, posterity will hold them accountable for any political disorder that arises from Wike’s ambitions.

“As fathers of our great party, they ought to play their role when it matters most. We disagree with the views expressed by the minister on the Rivers PDP gubernatorial ticket, where he stated that he is the only person in the Rivers PDP and that there are no known or notable politicians of Rivers extraction who could deliver for the PDP, if given the mandate.

“We believe that his statement is in very bad taste, as it seeks to denigrate the entire members of our great party. This hegemonic stranglehold over the Rivers PDP portrayed by the Minister of State for Education has led to a breach in the ranks of the party”.

‘I’m Not Wanted’, Oyinlola Writes Jonathan, As He Offers To Quit PDP


GEJ-OyinlolaFormer governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola may have decided to take a firm stand once and for all on his political future as he has parted ways with his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The Okuku-born retired army general hinged his decision to part ways with the PDP on his belief that his services are not wanted by the party, more so that President Goodluck Jonathan doubts his loyalty even after going the extra mile to prove otherwise.

Oyinlola in a July 30, 2014 letter to the president, said he would not be doing himself any good “if I don’t think seriously about my political journey and take a firm decision”.

The former PDP National Secretary, enumerated the various efforts he and others including his friend and former military colleague, Senate President David Mark, made to reconcile him with the party and the president said: “I may, at this point, need to look beyond the party and take my destiny in my hands”.

The letter, with reference number 00/PDP/5, reads in part: “Your Excellency, you are very conversant of all efforts made by me and very importantly, by respected leaders of the party to get this matter resolved and truly reconcile all aggrieved parties.

“I, however, learnt that you were not sure of my support for you, given my closeness to former President Olusegun Obasanjo hence the decision to disallow me from returning to my legally recognized position as the National secretary of the PDP.

“I have met you on several occasions on this matter to pledge my loyalty. At my last meeting with you, which was at the instance of the party’s National chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, you requested that I be part of the ongoing Osun State governorship campaigns. Mr. President would remember that I stated that the minimum the party leadership could do to get me to campaign was to instruct the Ogun State chapter of the party to withdraw its appeal at the Supreme Court; or alternatively, obey the Appeal Court order, and allow me to resume duty, the same way the party obeyed the faulty Federal High Court verdict that ousted me.

“To the foregoing, I wish to state that I was promised some positive response which never came, up till this moment. The Chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees, Chief Tony Anenih CFR, has also on several occasions, after discussing me, met with Your Excellency on this matter assuring you of my loyalty to you and to the cause of the party.

“I am also aware that the Senate President, Senator David Mark, GCON, has similarly met with you and made a case for my return to office. Senator Mark went to the extent of asking you to hold him responsible for all actions I might take as National Secretary.

“Mr. President, allow me to state with emphasis that what joins Senator Mark and my humble-self is more than politics.  The military family that binds us does not know double-dealing or disloyalty. A part of our training, we keep our words, hence we are called ‘Gentlemen Officers’. That precisely was why the Senate President could most frontally vouch for me.

“Your Excellency, allow me to also recall that on three occasions, Senator Mark informed that I had agreed to submit to you a pre-signed resignation letter, if that would allay all fears of insincerity; and all, in a bid to ensure that the injustice of my illegal removal from office is redressed.

“I wish to respectfully state that I do not go back on my words, just like I don’t abandon my friends, associates and leaders, no matter how hard the situation might be.

“That explains why as a State Governor, I remained very loyal to my boss, former President Ibrahim Babangida, GCFR, even when he had some issues with the government of former President  Olusegun Obasanjo, I wish to respectfully recall very respectfully, that Chief Obasanjo never made any attempt to move against me on account of these differences.

“The same spirit today drives me as I maintain my loyalty to former President Obasanjo, who may, or who may not have any relationship with your government. It was that same spirit that made me insist on your approval of my candidature, in your capacity as national leader of the party and president, before I agreed with my brother-governors’ request in 2012, to contest for the position of PDP National Secretary. I should like to state that I am not a fair-weather fellow. To my friends, the spirit is very similar to marital vow”.

The former governor expressed regrets that President Jonathan refused to listen to entreaties by party leaders on his behalf.

He added: “Mr. President, I wish to observe that with all these efforts by me and other credible leaders of our party, it appears clearly to me that you are not totally convinced that I am who I have always been in my journey through life.

“I have, therefore, come to the conclusion that it is this mindset that is at the root of my challenges in PDP. It seems to me that I am not wanted by the national leader of the party; and I know that.

“Therefore, I will certainly not be doing myself justice and good, despite everything, if I don’t think seriously about my political journey and take a firm decision.

“Mr. President, I may at this point, need to look beyond the party and take my destiny in my hands. I sincerely hope that this will solve the problem.

“Conclusively, Your Excellency, if I am doing the above and take further steps without telling you, I would be negating the pledge of loyalty which I had earlier made to you; hence this correspondence to Mr. President”.

2015: Ihedioha Dissociates Self From Vice-Presidential Aspirant Campaign Posters


PHOTO CREDIT: PREMIUM TIMES

The Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha, has dissociated himself, from posters in parts of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, portraying him as a vice-presidential aspirant on the platform the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015.

The posters which surfaced in strategic locations in Abuja, suggested Ihedioha as a running mate to Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, who has also distanced himself from the campaign posters.

The deputy speaker, who represented the Senate President, David Mark, at the grand finale of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship campaign rally in Osogbo, Osun State on Saturday, said that he remained a member of the PDP and asked the public to ignore the posters.

Speaking through his Press Sceretary, Mr. Oke Opia yesterday, Mr. Ihedioha said the pasting of the posters was the handiwork of mischief makers.

“The deputy speaker is fully focused on, and committed to rebuilding the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) nationally and in Imo State where he has remained a bulwark of the ruling party since the opposition took over the reins of government at that level in 2011”, Opia said.

Why Police Reforms Have Failed – Acting IG


Old-New IGPThe newly appointed acting Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba, has stated that all the reform policies of successive governments failed to transform the police because they (reform policies) did not focus on attitudinal change of policemen.

Abba, however, noted that of all the reform programmes implemented by various administrations only that of the Yar’Adua/Jonathan government had made impact on the Force.

Speaking at the Force Headquarters, Abuja on Friday, during his maiden address to men and officers of the Force shortly after his predecessor, Mohammed Abubakar, handed over to him, Abba stated that the missing link in the reform policies is the failure to change the attitude of the average police officer.

The acting IG said his team would also ensure that policing becomes truly intelligence-based and that enforcement and crime prevention initiatives are integrated and work side by side.

He said, “Of all the reforms embarked upon by the past governments, it is only that of the Yar’Adua/Goodluck administration that is working. We have seen the seven city programmes with the necessary equipment, we have seen tens of helicopters and other facilities in place.

“It is not the fault of those implementing or those that sat down and wrote the reform programmes, it is because one thing is missing, attitudinal change; the absence of attitudinal change in the Force is why the various reforms are not effective”.

Abba, while promising to build on the positive aspects that are firmly entrenched in the Force and to reinvigorate the areas where giant strides are expected, added that he would do whatever is necessary to curb the excesses of violent criminals.

According to him, senior police officers would henceforth be held accountable for their actions and inactions, by means of performance contracts and indicators, with clear deliverables which he said will be closely monitored.

He said, “The recent upsurge in security challenges will have my full attention. I am committed to addressing these issues and reaffirm the high standards of performance for which the Nigeria Police is nationally and internationally acclaimed.

“In consonance with the President’s Transformation Agenda, I will develop and implement constructive policing strategies for the maintenance of a stable democracy and economic growth”.

The police boss also assured that he would be guided by the needs and concerns of Nigerians; recognize and ensure the welfare of all Police officers; respect and protect human rights; cooperate with other security agencies and governments at all levels in the country, in order to achieve a safe and secure environment for everyone living in Nigeria.

He said, “My vision is to make the Nigeria Police Force a leading national, professional, and efficient law enforcement organization. A police force that is dynamic, robust and efficient; one that never rests or abdicate its professional duty; that studies and analyzes what works and what doesn’t, acknowledges and learns from its mistakes, and celebrates its victories.

“This is, indeed, our opportunity to redefine and rededicate our focus on our highest mission, which is to assuredly avail unfailing public safety service to the citizens of Nigeria. All aspects of our service will be centred on the values of Hardwork, Honesty and Humility –the triple H”.

In his remarks, the outgone police boss described the day as his happiest, adding that he was indebted to everyone in the Force, particularly the rank and file. He described Abba as his younger brother whom “I guided through the Police”.

I’ll Lead Nigerians To Battle To Defeat Boko Haram – Jonathan


GEJ-IN-ARMY-UNIFORMPresident Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday evening vowed that he would lead Nigerians to defeat the Boko Haram sect that has been unleashing terror on parts of the country.

“Fellow citizens, we will defeat terror and I will lead Nigerians to achieve this”, the president declared at a fundraising dinner where over N58bn was raised for the Victims Support Fund.

The event held at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja was meant to raise fund to provide relief and succour for all those who have been adversely affected by terrorism and insurgency in the country.

Jonathan said the fact that his administration set up the fund did not mean that it had succumbed to the threat of terror, maintaining that the Federal Government would not allow evil to prevail over good in the country.

He said although the country was passing through some challenging and tough times, these times would not last.

President Jonathan stated that “The fact that we are setting up a victims support fund does not mean we have accepted that terrorism is here to stay. No! Never!

“Rather, this is just one of the short-term measures on our overall strategy against the enemies of peace and progress.

“We will not allow evil to overcome good. No! We will not!! I understand perfectly that millions of Nigerians are worried about the threat of terror in our country.

“It is a new phenomenon that took us virtually unawares. I never once thought that I would, in my lifetime, hear of Nigerians strapping bombs to themselves and blowing up innocent people. We would have saw sworn that it is impossible!”

Jonathan said Nigeria would come out of the current challenges a tougher and better nation, even as he added that all options are still on the table to secure the release of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls.

He said: “We will come out of this tougher and better nation. In these trying times, we have seen Muslims and Christians, Northerners and Southerners, men and women, and Nigerians from all walks of life rise up in unison to condemn the terrorists”.

Nigeria’s Security Situation Appalling, Says Atiku


Atiku-AbubakarFormer Vice President Atiku Abubakar has raised the alarm over the security situation in the country, describing it as appalling.

He also said the present administration lacks the political will to stop the menace being caused by members of the Boko Haram terrorist sect.

The former Vice President, who spoke in an interview with Voice of America (VOA) in Abuja and monitored by our correspondent on Friday, added that the security problem in the country was already having negative effect on the country’s image internationally.

Atiku said since he was born, has had never witnessed the type of security problems facing the country now, adding that even during the civil war, the situation was not as bad.

The Turakin Adamawa, who was a founding member of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party but earlier this year defected to the All Progressives Congress, nonetheless suggested ways to end the security problem.

He said, “The security situation in the country, I must admit is appalling. I have never seen it this bad – not even during the civil war did we have this sense of insecurity all over the country?

“What we need to have in place is a political leadership that has the will, the courage and the determination to restore law and order. Restoring law and order is a multifaceted approach; both social, economic as well as security

“You must have a political leadership that has vision, the will and the courage to pursue those multifaceted approach”.

Atiku said it would be wrong to attribute his criticism of the government’s handling of the security situation to his membership of the opposition party.

He also called for an end to the blame game if the country is to surmount its present challenges.

According to him, “It’s not supported by any empirical evidence. I think we should stop passing the buck at each other.

“As long as this security situation is concerned we should work as a team, the whole country. Whether opposition whether ruling party, we should work as a team to make sure that we restore peace, unity and stability”.

Asked about the possibility of the APC dislodging the ruling party in the 2015 general election, he said it was possible.

He said, “I have never seen a climate that gives the opposition so much hope than today. Because since the return of democracy, Nigeria has been governed by only one ruling political party, and Nigerians really want to see a change.

“I toured the country and this sense of change is pervasive. So if the APC can put its house in order, Nigerians will give that party the opportunity”.

On the rift within his party, the former VP said as chairman of the Peace and Reconciliation Committee of the APC, he has been touring the country to appease aggrieved members.

He, however, said it was wrong to say he was using the position to enhance his alleged presidential ambition.

Atiku said, “All I was trying to do is to make sure that we provided Nigerians an alternative opposition. This is because I am a firm believer in a two-party system. A two-party system will provide Nigerians with alternatives from time to time.

“A single major or powerful political party will result into a one party system and will ultimately land us into the hands of a dictator. And God-forbid I don’t wish to live and see a dictator in Nigeria”.

2015: Okorocha Gives Deputy, Chief Of Staff Go Ahead To Contest Imo Guber Poll


Rochas Okorocha (2)Contrary to speculations, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has given approval to his deputy, Prince Eze Madumere, Chief of Staff, Sir. Jude Ejiogu, and other senior political appointees in his government willing to contest the 2015 governorship election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to go ahead and declare their ambitions.

According to a release signed by his Senior Special Assistant, Media, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, Okorocha gave the directive while addressing party leaders, officials of the party and elective office aspirants on the ticket of the party in the state.

Onwuemeodo also stated that the governor advised aspirants not to allow his looming presence to deter them from aspiring to the highest political office in the state.

“Nobody should withhold his or her ambition because of me. Every member of the APC willing to contest the governorship position of the state should throw his or her hat into the ring.

“There would be a level playing ground for all aspirants in the choice or selection of candidates of the party”, Okorocha told his aides and party loyalists.

Okorocha also told the party stakeholders that the APC would conduct mock primaries on September 1, 2014, before the main primaries.

“The mock primaries would be community-based because the candidates the party would back in the primaries proper would be the persons who got more popular support from the people in the communities that make up their respective local government areas, state or federal constituencies, or the senatorial zones”, Okorocha said.

According to him, the people at the grassroots must be fully involved and the party will only settle for popular candidates that will win elections for the party, no matter the zone they come from.

He, therefore, charged the aspirants to go home and mobilize support, stressing that they should not hope that anybody would be given the party’s ticket through the back door.

Governor Okorocha said: “Every aspirant must face his community.  All party members must be involved.  It is not going to be a matter for a few delegates.

“There will be no Government House candidates or Governor Okorocha’s candidates.  The Government House or the governor will not give the party any candidate. Government or Governor would go for the candidate of the people”.

[PHOTO] We grind human heads to make powder for ladies in search of husbands – Native doctor [Warning: Graphic Details]


Capture
A native doctor and suspected ritual killer arrested by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Lagos State Police Command has said that he grinds human heads into powder as charm for ladies who are looking for choice husbands and big contracts. 

Olasunkanmi Owolabi, a 43-year-old native of Oyo town, said the concoction is also used as cure for stubborn sores, mental illness, sickle cell anaemia and epilepsy. He also said had planned to establish a specialist native hospital if government gave him the approval. Continue…

Arrested with Owolabi were his two co-travellers, Clement Omodijie and Usman Saliu a.k.a. Alfa. Omodijie, a 54-year-old indigene of Ekpoma, Edo State, says he is married with three children. A grave digger at Gbogbo Cemetery, Ikorodu, Lagos on a monthly salary of N22,000, he said he had worked at the cemetery for five years before he was arrested by SARS operatives.
Saliu, a 31-year-old native doctor from Ilisa town in Osun State and Owolabi’s ally, said he trained as an alfa (Islamic cleric) at Ralwu Islamic School, Ikewu, Osun State where he claimed he spent nine years learning native medicine. A police source said the three had been charged with unlawful possession of human parts.

Owolabi (43), who was arrested on June 22 this year, was said to have requested a human head from Omodijie, saying that he needed the skull to prepare a medicine for his patients. Omodijie obliged Owolabi by exhuming a corpse from one of the graves in the cemetery where he worked and delivering the head to Owolabi.

Upon a tip-off from a member of the public, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Umar Manko, was said to have directed the officer in charge of SARS, Abba Kyari, a Superintendent of Police, to fish out the ritual killers.

Kyari immediately swung into action with his team. He put a call through to Saliu, saying that a human head was urgently needed to save the life of a wealthy patient whose illness had defied orthodox medicine. Saliu asked the detectives to come to Ikorodu for the transaction. But he was arrested as soon as he showed up at the agreed place. The human head he came with was recovered and put in a polythene bag as an exhibit.

confessing his role in the saga omodijie said, “i was content with being a grave digger before i met owolabi in a restaurant in front of the cemetery in gbogbo area of ikorodu. since i met owolabi, my life has not been the same again. I have moved from one problem into another. i was enjoying my n15,000 monthly salary as a grave digger before i met him and he lured me into supplying human heads to him at n4,000 each. “The unclad truth is that there is nothing reasonable i have done with the n4,000 per human head that he has been paying me. i used it to drink gin or smoke cigarettes with it. it is the devil’s money. “i hardly fell sick since i was born. but after selling human heads to him, my health has been deteriorating.

I buy drugs as if it is food, making me to spend more money than before. “i was moulding blocks before i secured a job in the cemetery as a grave digger. we were paid on a daily basis. we used wooden or machine moulder. but whichever moulder we used, we charged the owner n500 per bag of cement, which can give one about 40 blocks. if we did three bags, we collected n1,500. “when i got a job in the cemetery, i was happy because it is not as hard as moulding blocks.

The salary was small but i was enjoying it. the grave was shallow or deep, depending on the owner of the corpse and the way he or she wants it to be buried. “my trouble started a day i went to buy food opposite the cemetery. that was where i met owolabi and he said there was something he had wanted to tell me. He asked whether i was a worker in the cemetery and i said yes. he said i should give him a human head and i asked him what he meant. he said the head of a corpse already buried. “we have cemetery rules which forbid us from doing such a thing. i told him that i would not be able to do that, and he left. but thereafter, each day i went to the restaurant to buy food, he would accost me with the same request. i insisted that i would not do it because i did not want to lose my job, but he said it was better to sell human parts to him than allowing them to waste. “I summoned courage to ask him what he wanted to do with human heads and other parts. he said he was a native doctor and alfa, and that he wanted to use it to make medicine.

He said he would grind it into powder and mix it with certain herbs for pregnant women to drink in order to deliver their babies without complications or operation. he also said that he grinds human heads and mixes them with the powders some ladies carry in their handbags, saying that it helps those that are looking for choice husbands and big government contracts or companies’ lpos to secure them without stress. he also said that it can cure sickle cell anemia, among other ailments. “I told him that i didn’t have any but if i got one, i would call him.

A few days later, i called him on the phone and told him that i had got some. he asked me where i kept it and i told him that i kept one in a nearby bush. he asked me to bring it to my house so that he would come later to collect it. “he knows my house because he had followed me to my house several times after we met and became friends. he gave me n4,000 for the first head he came to collect from my house. the following day, he bought another one for n4,000.” asked how he obtained the heads he sold to owolabi, omodijie said: “The graves where i normally bring out the skulls from are shallow, and coffins are not used for the corpses brought there because of religion or financial status of the owners. it is cheaper to bury a corpse in a shallow grave than to do so in a deep, cemented or marbled one. “most burials done in shallow graves are temporary. that is why that section of the cemetery is called the temporary site. after some months, the corpses buried in shallow graves are excavated and burnt. that was why owolabi i should not allow the skulls to waste and that i should sell them to him instead.” “four of us work in the cemetery, but the other workers did not know that i was smuggling out human skulls and other parts to sell to native doctors. it was only two heads i had sold before detectives from sars arrested me. “there is no useful thing i can say i did with the money.

I was deceived by the devil. i am pleading for forgiveness because i did not kill a l anyone to sell their heads. i sold the skulls of corpses already buried and had decayed. i did not know that it would land me in this trouble.” owolabi on his part said: “i am an alfa and a native doctor. but i am not yet registered. i finished my arabic studies in kwara state about 13 years ago and relocated to ikorodu to work as a native doctor. i have the ambition of building a native hospital if the government gives me an approval. “I started by praying for sick people. last year, i met this cemetery worker (omodijie) and told him about the products (human parts) they were wasting. i learnt about using human skull to do powerful charms and medicine after travelling to kano, kaduna and other parts of the north. “in kano, i met a yoruba native doctor who told me that if i mixed ground human bones with soap and some herbs, it would bring luck for my clients or patients.

He said it could also cure chronic and stubborn sores and help pregnant women to deliver without complications or operation. it can also cure madness and other terrible diseases that defy orthodox solution. “women who are looking for husbands can also mix the ground bones with their powder. when they see a man they like, especially if they want a husband, they would rob the powder and talk to the man and the man will fall for them. it can also bring good luck and help job seekers to secure employment. “it can make somebody to become rich. it can cure epilepsy. a woman can also bath with it and men will be begging her to marry them. i sell a tablet of the soap for n2,000. it depends on the pocket of the buyer. some buy it for n1,000. I sell it around ikorodu and ajah in lagos. “saliu had told me to help him to get a human head and i collected one for him from the cemetery worker. he gave me n4,000 and i gave it to the cemetery worker that supplied the products. “when sars operatives arrested him, he led them to my house and i was also arrested. i knew the grave digger to be a worker in gbogbo cemetery at ikorodu. when he wanted to throw away some (human) parts, i told him that i needed them. i normally gave him n4,000 per skull.” saliu said: “i am a native doctor. i also spent nine years in ralwu islamic school, ikewu, osun state. i pray for women who are looking for husbands. i collected whatever amount they gave me. when the prayer worked for them, they would come to thank me with anything they liked. “i usually lock myself up to pray for my clients for between seven and 21 days, depending on the personality involved. they paid whatever amount they liked.

The only money they were required to deposit with me was the one to buy certain things that i would use to prepare the things i would use for the prayers.” asked why he had to use human skulls for his prayers, he said: “i had not used it before. one of my brothers came and met me in the house one day and told me that he went to ila-orangun in osun state to do rituals for money but the person he met told him that it would require a human skull and certain leaves. “when i met my brother, owolabi, we talked about how to get the human head. he told me that he himself used to do the same medicine with human heads and some herbs and even made medicinal soap with it. he asked me to go and bring money and he would help me get a human skull. “i asked owolabi where he would get it from and he said he had a link at the gbogbo cemetery in ikorodu. after six to seven months, my brother called me while i was still in bed and asked whether the human head was ready. i told him to let me ask owolabi about it. when i asked owolabi, he told me to come and meet him. when i met him, he said it would cost n18,000, saying that he bought it for n12,000 from the cemetery man. “a friend of shina came and gave him n15,000. owolabi took n10,000 and gave me n2,000 only, and told me that he would use the remaining n3,000 to pay for the transportation of the human head to the final destination.

“I won’t advise any man to have more than one wife” – Polygamist, OJB Jezreel


Capture

Singer/music producer OJB Jezreel who has 3 wives (pictured above with him) says he won’t advise any man to have more than one wife. Speaking with Saturday Punch, OJB explains;

Was it by choice or design that you have three wives?
It is everything. But predominantly, I think it is by design. Some people believe in destiny while some others don’t. I think it was destined to happen. I believe in destiny. I don’t think I would have survived it if it weren’t destined to be. People get shocked that I have three wives because I don’t live like somebody who has three wives. Come to think of it, there is no particular way to live life. Am I supposed to wear three shirts because I have three wives? I don’t even advise people to have three wives and when I talk about it, they are shocked. Continue…
But you married three?
Oh yes I did. When I was growing up, I even said I was not going to get married. I said I would just have children. But see, it is not the same story now. I just feel it is destiny.
Don’t you regret it?
There is no regret. Initially, you would tell yourself that if you had one wife, this would have happened or that would have happened if you didn’t. But then again, you have to check and understand that life is in stages. I am appreciating life the way it is. Out of the marriages, I have eight beautiful children. When I look at them, I am happy. They are my investment.

I still can’t get over women being okay with sharing one man…especially young, modern women. But everybody to their own…

Late Christy Essien Igbokwe’s husband opens up on new wife


Capture

Three years after he lost his wife, late iconic singer Christy Essien Igbokwe, Chief Edwin Igbokwe secretly married Oluchi Phillips. What many don’t know about his new wife is that she’s an actress who has featured in the highly watched soap opera, Tinsel, and aparingly in other movies.

The couple knew each other for many years and were good friends, so it was only natural that he would turn to her when he needed a partner to spend the rest of his life with. Mr Igbokwe explains;

“It was a family thing. I knew her father before the war. She is 42 years old. I also knew her mother. Even when my mother died many years ago, they came to pay condolence visit all the way from their place. You know, when people who are close to you are coming from a far place. They come with yam, palm oil and other things. They did that and that was when the mother introduced her to me as her daughter and I, as her son. It was mummy (late Christy Essien) that received them in Awka. So mummy knew her but there was nothing then. Let me tell you, you know mummy was spiritual. It wasn’t me who invited her. What would I be proving if it was me who invited her? When mummy passed on, she came to Niteshift and other places where we met again.

You know I was interviewed by a newspaper then and I said ‘Look there is no way I can get married again’ but it happened as time went on. When I now mentioned to her that I wanted to get married, she said, after what you said in the papers, you still want to get married? I said what I said in the paper was what I said by the time I said it, that was how I felt. After a while. I told her if she knew who I want to marry, she said no. I said it is you! She said how could that be? What would her mother say and all that questions? By then mummy’s death wasn’t two years. She told me that the mother and herself concluded that if I wanted to get married, I should get married to whoever I wanted. That if mummy’s death is not up to two years, nothing for me from her, that they want to give her that respect. So after three years of her death, we got married”.

Police searching for Nigerian who allegedly committed murder in the UK and fled to Nigeria


Capture

The guy pictured on the left is Jeffrey Okafor, the UK police is searching for him over the 2009 murder of Carl Beatson Asiedu (pictured right – who is also Nigerian). He was stabbed to death in the early hours of August 1 2009 outside a night club after an argument with Jeffery and his friends. Jeffery then fled to Nigeria after the murder. Read full story from the Independent UK below

“The family of a children’s television actor murdered outside a London club have made an emotional appeal for information as the police offer a £10,000 reward.

Carl Beatson Asiedu, who appeared in CBBC’s MI High series, was stabbed to death in five years ago aged just 19.

Police believe they know the identity of his killer but have been unable to find him for five years after he allegedly fled to Nigeria. Continue…

CCTV of Jeffrey Okafor at Heathrow Airport in 2009 – the last time he was seen.

Jeffrey Okafor left the UK on 17 August 2009, days after the murder, and was last captured on CCTV boarding a flight to the country at Heathrow Airport using his brother’s passport, the Metropolitan Police said.

Four men, including Okafor’s brother, have been convicted of charges relating to the murder but police are offering £10,000 to anyone who can help them trace the man they believed stabbed the teenager.

Mr Asiedu, the son of a pastor and a midwife, died in the street after being stabbed in the heart in the early hours of 1 August 2009.

Known as DJ Charmz, he had just performed a set at the Club Life nightclub in Vauxhall, south London, and was walking to a car with friends when he was attacked.

 Police said another group approached and an argument broke out with one of Mr Asiedu’s friends, apparently over a “trivial” college dispute.

Mr Asiedu and his friend Peter Lama, who survived, were stabbed in the following attack, while their friends fled.

They returned to find Mr Asiedu collapsed in the road and tried to drive him to hospital but despite first aid from police and paramedics, he was pronounced dead in the car.
His father, John Asiedu, said he will never be free of the pain of his son’s death and suffers fresh grief every time he hears of a stabbing. He said:

“Part of me died with him and I have to carry on living with what is left of me. Carl’s tragic death has changed my view of life, people, the justice system and the world.I would urge Jeffrey Okafor to do the right thing and give himself up. I believe there are people in Nigeria who know him but don’t know who he really is.

“I believe he is living comfortably with a new life. Sometimes I wonder how such killers can lead normal lives with their families and friends who sometimes protect and shield them from the law.

“I am still serving the life sentence of sorrow and pain embedded in my consciousness.”

Detective Inspector Alison Hepworth, from the Met’s murder division, said Okafor could be living a “comfortable life” in Nigeria while his family’s heartache continues.
“We know there are people in UK supporting him in his new life in Nigeria and are shielding him from facing justice,” she added.
“I would appeal to those people – his friends or family – if you have in some way helped to aid his escape, now is your opportunity to do the right thing and tell us where he is.”

Junior Okafor – the suspect’s brother – was sentenced to four years imprisonment in 2010 for assisting his brother’s escape to Nigeria.

Members of the group involved in the confrontation with Mr Asiedu’s friends, Bolaji Kako-Are and Abu Mansaray, were convicted of violent disorder in 2011 and each sentenced to three years in prison.

Another of Okafor’s associate’s, Junior Ademujimi-Falade, was found guilty of violent disorder and manslaughter and jailed for eight years in 2011.

Scotland Yard has been working with Nigerian authorities in their efforts to trace Okafor.

There Is Nothing Wrong With Being A Second Wife – Nkiru Sylvanus


Beautiful Nollywood actress Nkiru Sylvanus in a recent interview denied the ongoing rumours that she got married recently.

bryaetkcyaa8mzrThe popular actress was said to have married a rich politician and is now a second wife for the so called politician.

In an interview with Punch, she said:  “I had an interview on the television where I was asked if I could be a second wife for any reason and I said yes. You can never say never because anything is possible, life is full of surprises.

Being a second wife is not a crime, it is not something you do and get condemned for life. If you find the right person and he is married and willing to take you into his home and you are willing to accept the challenges, then why not give it a chance.

So if I find myself in that situation where I find a man that I love, appreciate and want to spend the rest of my life with and he is married, I would follow my happiness.

I am just saying that we should not discriminate against women who are second wives because you cannot tell another person’s story better than the person. As you can see, I am still single; I am not yet married.”

DHQ Says Military Commences Inquiry Into Killing Of Shiite Muslims


Following the death of some members of the Shiite Islamic sect, the Defence Headquarters, DHQ, on Friday, August 1 said it had commenced inquiry into the clash between soldiers and the sect.

N0DNNHELgvnpBlxMp036oftU

The DHQ’s Director of Defence Information, Chris Olukolade made this known in a statement in Abuja.

Mr. Olukolade said the inquiry became necessary to calm the situation in Zaria after the recent encounter between soldiers who were on routine patrol and members of the sect.

It stated that while not downplaying the significance of such incident, it was also necessary to ensure that sufficient information was obtained beginning from the unit level and other reliable sources at the location.

He said that a preliminary investigation had been conducted to unravel the circumstances surrounding the unfortunate incident.

“An inquiry is subsequently ongoing at the Divisional level.

“Although, the report of the preliminary investigation at the unit level has vehemently contradicted some of the issues raised by the leader of the group.

“In his statement, especially on the allegation of extra judicial killings, the higher headquarters is conducting additional investigation on the incident to ascertain the claims in the preliminary reports from the unit level.

“In spite of the preliminary findings, the importance placed on the respect for human rights in all military operations, activities and interactions, has prompted the additional steps presently being taken to ascertain the true situation.”

He said the higher level of military inquiry is with a view to unmasking the remote and immediate causes of the incident and to identify anyone found culpable.

Mr. Olukolade said that those apprehended during the incident are being interrogated.

“The DHQ deeply commiserates with the families of those that lost their lives in that unfortunate incident, especially the leader of the group who was reported to have lost his sons.

“Indeed, his present disposition is understandable as it is pathetic. I assure that no effort will be spared to ensure necessary justice on this matter.”

On July 25, it was reported that there was tension in Zaria following the clash between Soldiers and shittes which reportedy resulted in the troops opening fire and killing more than 30 members of the sect while on a procession to mark the annual Quds day in Zaria were reportedly shot to death by soldiers.

Three sons of the leader of the group, Ibraheem El-Zakzaky were among the victims killed.

Osun: Omisore’s Time Has Come – Jonathan


GEJ-OMISOREPresident Goodluck Jonathan said on Saturday in Ile-Ife that the PDP candidate for the Aug. 9 Osun governorship poll, Iyiola Omisore, would emerge victorious.

Jonathan spoke during a courtesy visit to Oba Okunade Sijuwade, the Ooni of Ife.

“Omisore’s time has come …God’s time is the best”, he said.

The president, who described Ooni as a blessing to the present generation, thanked him for his support.

He said Omisore was a “fantastic material” that Osun needed at this time to take the state to the “promised land”.

I urge support for the PDP gubernatorial candidate, cast your vote for him and Omisore will not let you down, Jonathan said.

Earlier, Sijuwade had called for a minute silence in memory of the souls of departed heroes.

The traditional ruler named such heroes as the late Obafemi Awolowo, Bola Ige, Alhaji Ado Bayero, the Emir of Kano and Igwe Okagwe, the Obi of Onitsha among others.

Sijuwade described Omisore as a humble person, recalling that he “stepped aside” for former Governors Bisi Akande and Olagunsoye Oyinlola when he prevailed on him.

According to him, it is only God who has the power to appoint the president, governors, and traditional rulers.

On the unity of the country, Sijuwade said: “Without unity the country’s progress will remain very slow”.

He appealed to traditional rulers to join hands with the government to rid the country of insurgency.

“With their support, Boko Haram insurgency and other activities militating against national growth will become a thing of the past”.

He said the South-West zone and particularly Osun needed more federal presence in line with the president’s transformation agenda.

Sijuwade also called on the government to continue to give critical sectors – agriculture and aviation a boost.

He solicited the support of the president for the revival of cocoa, completion Ile-Ife water dam and the expansion of Ife-Ibadan expressway. (NAN)

JOHN DUMELO GRABS YVONNE NELSON’S BOOB


John-Dumelo-Grabs-Yvonne-Nelson-Boobs

 

 

RE: THOSE FIGHTING OR WRITING FOR SAMUELSON IWUOHA MUST CHANGE THEIR APPROACH


RE: THOSE FIGHTING OR WRITING FOR SAMUELSON IWUOHA MUST CHANGE THEIR APPROACH

My attention has been drawn to an article at the back page of the White Paper Newspaper of 30th-31st July 2014 by Sam Onwuamedo the SSA media to Governor Rochas Okorocha titled “Those Fighting or Writing for Samuelson Iwuoha must change their Approach”.

 

Onwuamedo in that write up tried to exonerate Mr Benjamin Uwajumogu and Governor Okorocha from the Samuelson’s illegal detention. He also said that the Police should be allowed to do their job. Onwuamedo I ask you, for how long? You are fooling no one. We know the truth. Will it take forever for the Police to do their job? We have done our own private investigation and we know the truth. The Police have clearly shown that they have been compromised. We know that Samuelson’s detention is political and that the government of Imo State is using the Police to victimize the social crusader.

 

For Sam Onwuamedo to openly come out to do a blow job for the Imo State Police Command, the Speaker Benjamin Uwajimogu and Imo State Government using his private media outfit goes to show how far/deep the conspiracy has gone against Samuelson and his wife. Sam Onwuamedo & Co are  pretending  to be blind and not to see the obvious conspiracy to hide the truth of the Samuelson’s illegal detention from the global community and from Imolites because they are part of the conspiracy to unjustly and illegally detain him  and his wife over a frivolous accusation of murder because he (Samuelson) exposed their corruption dealings.

 

I am very sure that Sam Onwuamedo & Co are aware that there was a security/peace meeting at the government house on the 5th of June 2014 in respect of cult killings in Owerri within that period, with all the security stakeholders in attendance, including the Imo Police commands. At the meeting, it was established that Samuelson and all the people arrested over the incident of 3rd June 2014 were innocent and it was resolved that they should be released. The sum of one million Naira (N1,000,000) was released to the two warring groups to shield their swords and maintain peace. Till date Samuelson and his wife have not been released.

 

I am happy that Sam Onwuamedo in his writing indicated that “ the Police we know, in a situation like this  have their language, we do not know much of, they can make water out of stone when they want a point against somebody”. It should be recalled that a team of policemen were sent from the Police Force Headquarters Abuja on the 24th of July with a letter to the CP to officially transfer the case of Samuelson to Abuja but Imo CP has not complied with the transfer order. The Police Commissioner himself told the Policemen from Abuja that Governor Okorocha and Mr Benjamin Uwajumogu are involved in this matter. As at today they are fighting to stop the transfer of Samuelson’s case to Abuja.

 

With the above knowledge in mind, it is very pertinent for these questions to be asked.

  1. Was there a security/peace meeting on the 5th of June 2014 with all the stakeholders in the security business including the police in attendance at the government house?
  2. Was it not established at the security/peace meeting that Samuelson and others arrested were innocent and that they should be released? Others have been released excluding Samuelson and his wife.
  3. Were the names and addresses of the killers of Architect Franklin Okoli not provided at the security/peace meeting and was submitted to the police command?
  4. Did the state government not give the sum of One million naira (N1,000,000) to the two warring groups to shield their swords and maintain peace?
  5. Did the Chief of Staff to the Governor (Sir Jude Ejiogu) based on the resolve at the security/peace meeting at government house not led a delegation to Imo police command on the 6th of June 2014 to apologize to Samuelson and others arrested for the unjust and illegal detention?
  6. Did the Chief of Staff on the June 6th 2014 demand the immediate release of Samuelson and others arrested after the security/peace meeting on 5th June 2014 exonerated them?
  7. Was Jude Ejiogu not scolded by Okorocha and Uwajumogu for attempting to release Samuelson?
  8. What was the essence of the Speaker Benjamin Uwajimogu’s Chief Security Officer’s visit to Samuelson’s IPO (Mr Innocent Obi) on the 5th of June 2014, and when confronted, he was speechless?
  9. Did Speaker Uwajimogu slam a Six billion Naira (N6b) libel suit on Samuelson Iwuoha with suits marked CV/1780/2014 and CV/1781/2014 during this period of Samuelson’s unjust and illegal detention. Could it be a coincidence?
  10. How come that Imo police command having participated fully in the security/peace meeting of 5th June 2014 at the government house, the Chief of Staff Sir Jude Ejiogu having demanded for the release based on the revelation that all those arrested are innocent and they are still holding Samuelson and his wife till now?
  11. Why is the police command still holding Samuelson and wife when they have carried out four blood tests from samples of the blood stains found in Samuelson’s apartment and that of late Franklin Okoli and it did not match? Even the Deputy Police Commissioner has said it severally on phone and to Samuelson’s father that Samuelson is innocent.
  12. How come the body of Arc. Franklin Okoli was released to the family and was buried on the 10th of July 2014 if the investigation has not been concluded?
  13. How come 17 others arrested along with Samuelson and wife have been released, despite the fact that Samuelson was not around when the incident occurred and blood sample test did not match in any way?

There are a lot of questions that should be asked but most worrisome is that the truth is being suppressed here and somebody is talking about approach. Does that mean we the people are at the mercy of the people at the top?

What other approach is Sam Onwuamedo & Co suggesting when an innocent man & woman are languishing in the police cell and their under aged children and businesses are suffering terribly. If indeed Samuelson is Onwuamedo’s “friend and man” as he claims, he should have gone to visit him and hear from him so as to have a clear insight of the issue, instead of relying solely on Police and their so called “investigation” purposely being used to punish the couple and their under aged children. If those questions are sincerely looked into and investigated, the answers will reveal a lot of truths.

 

What Samuelson is facing today obviously is not a murder allegation but as grand conspiracy designed to silence him. The story of Joseph in the bible quickly comes to mind in Samuelson matter. At Potipher’s house, his wife tried seducing him but Joseph being an upright  and honest man with the fear of God, frowned, resisted and  fled from the temptation but at the end of the day, he was jailed for attempted rape. But Joseph’s imprisonment became a blessing. Imagine Samuelson who on several occasion alerted the world even the police that his life is being threatened by those he exposed is now being accused and detained by the same police for murder.

 

Having keenly followed Sam Onwuamedo from his first write-up on this matter captioned “Samuelson Iwuoha and the Murder Allegation –May God Grant him favor like Paul and Silas” I have come to believe that he had a deeper insight and support of the intention of these manipulators  as per the conspiracy against Samuelson. In totality Sam Onwuamedo & Co are biased and we know a biased mind can never see clearly talk less of speaking the truth. Understandably, Sam Onwuamedo is doing his job as a media aide but in doing  his job, he should realize that the only time God will help us is when people including Sam Onwuamedo and co starts speaking out against injustice, illegality and falsehood.

May the lessons of the uprightness of Joseph from the bible guide and teach us. As our dear First Lady once cried “There is God O”. We know this God will vindicate Samuelson soon  and put the enemy to shame.

Ebola: Two show symptoms of fever after contact with Liberian victim in Lagos


The Lagos State Government on Friday announced that out of those who had contacts with Mr. Patrick Sawyer, the dead Liberian victim of Ebola virus, two had shown signs of fever.

The Commissioner for Health, Dr Jide Idris, made the disclosure while addressing newsmen on the status of the virus in the state.

The Commissioner said the two persons were part of the people being monitored and investigated for any symptoms of the disease, having had both direct and indirect contact with the victim.

He said that even though they had fever, they were yet to be tested positive to the virus.

Idris said the state government would continue to monitor all contacts with the victims until the end of the 21 days incubation period of the virus.

“Our Rapid Response Team is currently tracking all contacts of persons exposed to the dead passenger with Ebola virus.
“The contract tracing team is following 70 contacts of the EVD case and linking them to clinical support when needed.
“Two suspect cases had fever, they are under observation and so far have tested negative to the virus.
“The monitoring of suspect cases will continue until the end of the period of 21 days from their exposure to the victim,’’ he said.

N82bn allegation: Acting Governor, Fintiri vows to punish Nyako


Murtala Nyako

The Acting Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, Friday vowed to punish the former governor of the state, Murtala Nyako, for allegedly squandering the states resources, which he pegged at N82billion.

Fintiri, who made the disclosure during a PDP stakeholders meeting, which took place at the government house, Yola, said the punishment will serve as a lesson to any greedy politician who wants to steal public funds.

The Acting Governor said he would inaugurate a panel of inquiry which will look into the financial fraud committed by the former governor on Monday, to unravel the financial misconducts carried out by the previous administration which plunged the state into abysmal decay.

“We are going to ensure that all Adamawa funds in private accounts are retrieved back into the state coffers. We shall also ensure that all property acquired with Adamawa resources are also retrieved, so that their values can be channelled into Adamawa State resources,” he said.

Impeachment: Al-Makura Waives Immunity, Set To Appear Before Probe Panel Monday


Umaru-Tanko-Al-Makura1Determined to prove his innocence before the people that put him in office, the embattled Governor of Nasarawa State, Alhaji Tanko Al-Makura, has offered to waive off his immunity to appear before the seven-man investigative panel set up by the state Chief Judge on alleged mismanagement of state funds.

The seven-member panel headed by Mr. Yusuf Usman, which is scheduled to begin public sitting on Monday in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital, has notified all the parties involved, including the House of Assembly.

Confirming his decision to appear before the panel yesterday, Governor Al-Makura simply said: “I think I will make first appearance on Monday, and then my counsel can thereafter take over.

“I hope my counsel will allow me to have the first shot before they go ahead with the legal representation”, he added.

The governor, however, refused to talk further insisting that he has tremendous respect for the House of Assembly and constitutional guidelines on the ongoing impeachment proceedings against him.

Recall that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, dominated Nasarawa Assembly had leveled 16 allegations against the governor and directed the Chief Judge, Justice Sulaiman Dikko, to constitute a seven-man panel to probe the allegations. However, the members have rejected two out of the seven members of the panel, alleging that they are members of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state.

Jonathan Lacks The Political Will To End Insurgency – Atiku


Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said President Goodluck Jonathan lacked the political will end terrorism in Nigeria.

“I must admit is appalling. I have never seen it this bad – not even during the civil war did we have this sense of insecurity all over the country,” Atiku told Voice of America (VOA).

The former presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and now a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) noted that growing insecurity has undermined the country’s economy as well as impacted negatively on Nigeria’s reputation in the international community.

Atiku said Nigeria required a leadership that has the political will to resolve the security threats the country faces.

“What we need to have in place is a political leadership that has the will, the courage and the determination to restore law and order.

“Restoring law and order is a multifaceted approach; both social, economic as well as security. You must have a political leadership that has vision, the will and the courage to pursue those multifaceted approaches. It’s not supported by any empirical evidence.

“I think we should stop passing the buck at each other,” he said, adding “As long as this security situation is concerned, we should work as a team, the whole country. Whether opposition, whether ruling party, we should work as a team to make sure that we restore peace, unity and stability.”

Boko Haram Sends Advance Warning To Attack A/Ibom


godswill_akpabio_The Boko Haram terrorist sect has threatened to attack public places in Akwa Ibom State, according to text messages in possession of the State Government.

A statement issued on Friday evening by the state Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr. Aniekan Umanah, said the public places targeted by the terrorists include churches, markets and schools, among others.

Umanah advised members of the public to be security conscious and be extra-vigilant by reporting suspicious movements to security personnel for immediate action.

The state government assured residents of their safety, saying it had directed security agencies to step up surveillance to prevent likely attack on the state.

The statement also urged residents to go about their lawful businesses as government was poised to sustain the prevailing peace in the state.

The state government, however, decried the e-emergence of activities of commercial motorcyclists in Uyo metropolis despite the existing ban on their operations.

Ebola Scare: Jim Iyke Thanks God For Sparing His Life (Photo)


After fleeing Liberia over Ebola scare, Nollywood actor Jim Iyke shared another photo of himself, sitting at a table with a variety of food in front of him.

 

The actor, who is presently in an undisclosed area, seems to be doing fine.

 

He posted the photo below with the caption, “Breakfast; somewhere serene. Glad to be away from all the madness. Thank u lord 4 everytime u hide me in ur pavilion #Ikechukwu.”

Yesterday, Jim Iyke had posted a photo of himself wearing an expensive mask with a message on his Instagram page saying, he was leaving Liberia earlier than scheduled because of the rising case of Ebola in the country.

 

Jim’s photo had sparked a lot of outrage on social media, as some Nigerians suggested the actor should be isolated and monitored for a while, soon as he arrives Nigeria, in order for him not to spread the virus, in case he has already been infected.

 

Meanwhile, Nigerians also got alerted to Ebola last week after a man from Liberia who had symptoms of Ebola died in a Lagos hospital.

 

Ebola is transmitted through close contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected animals, and in many parts of West Africa people are being told to cover as much of their body as possible to ensure the infection doesn’t enter their bloodstream through a small cut.

Buhari-kaduna-blast
Speaking to Premium Times reporter after the extraordinary meeting of the National Council of State, the NSA refuted the allegation that the federal government was responsible for the attack on the former head of state.
Dasuki, who spoke in the company of Governors of Akwa Ibom, Godswil Apkabio, Niger, Babangida Aliyu; and Enugu, Sullivan Chime, revealed that Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, had threatened to attack Buhari as far back as February.
According to him, the threat was contained in video released by the terrorist group, where they called Buhari and some other northern and Muslim leaders infidels, and promised to deal with them.
“We said something about the attack on Buhari and Sheik Dahiru Bauchi. There was a threat as far back as February this year issued by Shekau calling them infidel by name and position saying that they were in trouble and they were going to see” he said. “Well, the government was not responsible, and if you say that the government was responsible in the case of General Buhari, why don’t you say the same in the case of Sheik Dahiru Bauchi?”
Dasuki while condemning the allegations made against the government described it as “what sells the paper.”
“That is the most unfortunate thing. And we want say that it was not only General Buhari; there were others mentioned too,” he said.
The Council, during its meeting, unanimously agreed to support President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration in wiping out Boko Haram before December 2014.
It would be recalled that over 80 people were killed on July 23, 2014 in separate bomb attacks in Kaduna State, with one of the suspected bomber aiming for the car conveying General Buhari, who miraculously escaped unhurt.

FG Starts Scheme To Give Out 10, 000 Houses


Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the Minister of Finance on Thursday announced that the Federal Government has officially started the first phase of its 10,000 housing units under the Affordable Home Ownership Scheme.
Dr Ngozi Okonjo Iweala
The minister while speaking with Punch correspondent at the inauguration of the scheme in Abuja revealed that the project will be handled by the newly established Nigerian Mortgage Refinancing Company.
She said the project will avail Nigerians the opportunity to own their own houses at a very affordable rates, adding that even low income earners would be allowed to own their houses under a flexible payment package.
The Minister of Finance pointed out that through this scheme, the process of owning houses had been simplified unlike in the past when it was difficult for Nigerians to own their houses through affordable mortgages.
Okonjo-Iweala further revealed that under the new structure, the processing time for application for the mass housing project had been reduced from between six and 18 months to just six weeks. She expressed optimism that with the inauguration of the NMRC in January and its successive take off in June, the bottleneck in getting finance to develop accessible and affordable housing in the country had been removed.
“We want Nigerians to own their houses at affordable costs. The NMRC’s mission is to provide long-term funding for the housing sector. Since the ability of banks in providing mortgages is limited by the fact that 80 per cent of all the deposits are on 30-day period, which does not ensure great level of sustainability in providing resources for the housing sector, the NMRC is here to ensure greater access to financing of up to 10 to 15 years. So, instead of people not being able to own houses as they would have to pay up in 12 or 18 months; we are changing that now so that for 10 to 15 years, people can be able to pay for their own houses” she said.
However, it was gathered that under the scheme, a unit of two-bedroom apartment might be sold for between N4.5m and N7.5m, depending on the location; while the three-bedroom apartment would be sold from N8m

CGF chief executive Mike Hooper has today revealed that the second test also showed traces of the substances amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide (both banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency).

Nigerians were widely celebrating Chika’s victory because she became the youngest ever female to win a weightlifting title at a Commonwealth Games.

Now if the hearing ends up negatively for the 16-year-old, her medal might be awarded to Dika Toua of Papua New Guinea.

[Graphic Photo] Mysterious death at Lagoon Restaurant: Keyamo petitions IG of Police


Capture

Below is a petition to the Inspector General of Police from Festus Keyamo chambers about a staff of Lagoon Restaurant in VI who drowned while on duty. Read below…

Suspicious death of Mr. Chris Onaghise: A case of culpable homicide against the management of Lagoon Restaurant, Lagos

We are solicitors to Mr. Orobosa Onaghise (hereinafter referred to as ‘our Client’) on whose instructions we write to you.

Our Client briefed us as follows: That the Late Mr. Chris Onaghise (hereinafter referred to as ‘the Deceased’) is his son and until his demise, a staff of Lagoon Restaurant, Victoria Island, Lagos. Our client further informed us that on Monday 16th June, 2014, he received a telephone call from a lady (who did not want to be identified) informing him that something tragic had happened to the deceased at his workplace. Our client consequently rushed to the Lagoon Restaurant but despite his best efforts could only arrive there after two (2) hours. Upon arriving at the Lagoon Restaurant, our client was informed that the deceased fell into the lagoon while on duty at about 10:00am that morning and was still in the lagoon.
Our client demanded to know why no immediate rescue efforts were made to rescue the deceased and one Mr. Rami, the Managing Director of the Lagoon Restaurant informed our client that the Restaurant had no life jackets, divers or indeed safety apparatus. Upon our client’s persistence, the Managing Director invited a lady via a telephone conversation who identified herself as a Police Officer from Bar Beach Police Station in charge of the investigations .
On enquiry as to the extent of investigations, our client was bluntly informed by the Police Offices that investigations had been concluded and that she believed that the deceased slipped, fell into the lagoon and consequently lost his life. Our client was curious as to how the investigations could have been concluded when the body of the deceased was still in the Lagoon and none of the eye-witnesses or the management of the Lagoon Restaurant had been questioned. Our client’s concerns were ignored by the Police Officer and the deceased was abandoned in the Lagoon despite the agitations of our client till 10:00pm.
Our client further informed us that the next day (17th June, 2014), he visited the Bar beach Police Station where he met with the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) and enquired about the recovery of the body of the deceased and further investigation, to our client’s utter bewilderment, the DPO denied knowledge of the existence of the case and the allegedly concluded investigations. The DPO subsequently ordered an investigation and an invitation of all the eye witnesses including the Managing Director of the Lagoon Restaurant.
The DPO subsequently directed a recovery of the body of the deceased. At about 10:00pm on Tuesday, 17th June, 2014, the body of the deceased was allegedly recovered from the same spot in which he was said to have slipped. A cursory look at the body of the deceased disclosed bruises and blood stains all over the face suggestive of a physical confrontation before the alleged drowning. To further confirm the foregoing suspicions, the deceased body did not show any signs of bowel enlargement consistent with drowning. Do find attached images of the body of the deceased to buttress the foregoing.
 
The question begging to be answered arising from these facts are as follows:
1.   Why is the obvious physical state of the body of the deceased inconsistent with the management’s narration of events leading to the death?
2.   In the unlikely event that the management of Lagoon Restaurant’s account of events is accurate, what are the safety measures put in place by the management of the Lagoon Restaurant to prevent such occurrence, since it carries on business in a high risk environment?
3.   Why was the staff that called to inform our client of the incident sacked immediately?
4.   Why did the management of the Lagoon Restaurant break into the deceased personal locker while the key to the said locker was found on the deceased’s body?
We are consequently constrained to write this petition to your exalted office as our client has become increasingly frustrated with the nonchalant attitude with which the Bar Beach Police Station is handling the investigations and the desperate efforts of Mr. Rami, the Managing Director of the Lagoon Restaurant (a Lebanese national) to conceal and destroy evidence that will aid the authorities to resolve all the queries raised by the foregoing facts.
We therefore urge you to use your good offices to order a full investigation and Coroner’s Inquest for the purpose of resolving the foregoing questions and consequently prefer criminal charges against all those found culpable.
We anticipate your urgent intervention in this matter.

Over a year after walking away from his label, YSG Entertainment, rapper Vector has written an open apology letter to them. Find it below…

Dear Fans and Media Reps: Apology Letter to YSG Entertainment Limited.

I hope this meets you well. It is no secret that the last 12 months have been the most turbulent of my music career. With regards to the lingering issues about which I have been mute, I, Olanrewaju Ogunmefun popularly known to you as Vector Tha Viper, wish to state the following;

YSG Entertainment Ltd without any doubt, gave me the platform to show case my talent to the world. It is true we had misunderstandings on issues concerning my engagement with them. Continue…

 

There’s an existing Federal High Court injunction preventing me from doing what I love to do and this serves me and my fans no good. However, we have entered into a settlement to have the injunction lifted.

 

That by reason of irreconcilable differences, my Record Contract Agreement with YSG Entertainment Ltd has been aborted.

That being said, in the spirit of good faith and a show of unreserved commitment to settle these issues amicably out of court, I have sought and obtained permission from the label to pay off the discounted recoupable expenses as contained in the Terms of Settlement in this regards.

I would also like to apologize to the management of YSG Entertainment Ltd for any embarrassment occasioned by my conduct and whatever damage it may have suffered as a result of the slander and libel as portrayed by the media in this regard. These issues were exaggerated by the media as I hold YSG Entertainment Ltd in high esteem. I also appreciate the leniency afforded me by discounting the recoupable expenses for me.

I wish the company well in all their endeavors.

Thank you.

 

Signed:

Olanrewaju David Ogunmefun.

APC accuses FG of terrorizing Osun people ahead of governorship election


pdp and apcThe All Progressives Congress has accused the Federal Government of terrorizing the people of Osun State ahead of August 9 governorship election in the state.

APC in a statement issued in Lagos by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, wondered why the government will send agents of the Department of State Services (DSS) to the state when the present situation does not warrant such action.

According to the APC, some of the DSS agents were masked and clad in black, “ostensibly to harass innocent citizens in an unprovoked and primitive show of power that can only be described as sheer gangsterism.”

The party said, ”As widely reported, DSS agents, armed to the teeth and riding in over 50 trucks, drove around Osogbo and other parts of Osun State on Wednesday blaring siren and shooting sporadically in the air, thus disrupting the normally peaceful life in the state.

”Residents who were visibly traumatized by the shameful display of state power ran helter-skelter and wondered why their government has sent masked men, or ninjas, to terrorize them. They now understand that the masked thugs who have been following the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate around on his campaign trail were actually government sanctioned.

“This is a power show taken too far, even with the well-known impunity tendencies of the Jonathan administration.”

It added: ”The real purpose of this fake petition and the consequent deployment of thousands of secret police to Osun is to harass, intimidate and arrest the leaders of the APC in the state, in a repeat of what transpired in Ekiti.

”Flooding Osun with irresponsible DSS officials to terrorize the residents is another low for a government that is notorious for abuse of power and federal institutions. It is no longer news that the military, the police and other security agencies are working for the Jonathan administration, rather than for all of Nigeria. What is new is that the security agencies have now been unleashed on the citizenry.

”What rankles even more is the constant assurances by President Jonathan that the election will be free and fair. How can we have a credible election in an atmosphere of state-led gangsterism? How can we have a credible election when the federal government that is supposed to protect the people and ensure violence-free polls is the same one that purveys violence? Where else in the world do secret police announce themselves by firing to scare away harmless citizens? When did masks become part of the State Security Service agents uniform?”
