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

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

Nigeria VS Bosnia: The Facts

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

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

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

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

Impeachment: Nyako begs in Abuja

Gov. Murtala Nyako of Adamawa

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

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

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

Defence HQ, in an official press release today, reports that Husaini who leads a cell of the terrorists billed to operate in the Plateau is known to have led an attack on Headquarters, Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Abuja in November 2012.

Other items which included uniforms of security organisations as well as protective gears, boots and other goods which they had stolen from various locations towards Nigeria – Niger border were also recovered by troops.

In another development, two men, Sani Sule and Idris Rume who were found loitering around the Aba Prisons have been arrested by officers of the Nigerian Prisons and handed over to troops in the state for further investigations.

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

Report by Elijah Elaigwu

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nyako Impeachment: EFCC Arrest Top Govt Officials in Adamawa State

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Boko Haram Members Flee Sambisa Forest Over Killings in the Camp

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

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

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

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

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

Residents Panic over Heavy Security Presence in Ekiti State

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PayPal expand payment services to Nigeria

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kefee’s Last Days-Her Colleague Shares Tribute

kefee dead

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

pastor suspect Timothy Ngwu

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nyako, Presidency Face-Off Gets Messier As FG Freezes State Government Accounts

Goodluck_NyakoHe might be a former Naval Chief and brilliant military strategist but Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State may be fighting the battle of his life presently as the Federal Government has frozen all bank accounts being operated by the state government. This is even as he is facing impeachment by the state House of Assembly, purportedly acting out a script written by the presidency.

According to a report by Daily Trust on Friday, the Director of Press and Public Affairs in Adamawa Government House, Ahmad Sajoh confirmed the development, which he said has exposed the desperate efforts by President Goodluck Jonathan to witch hunt officials he perceived as enemies even if it means subjecting the electorate to hardship.

Sajoh added that the closure of the bank accounts would have adverse effect on workers as the state government may not be able to pay salaries even as social services might be grounded especially during the holy month of Ramadan.

Police IG Deploys 1 AIG, 5 CPs To Ekiti For Saturday’s Guber Poll

Abubakar-IGPThe Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, has deployed an Assistant Inspector-General of Police, AIG, and five Commissioners of Police, CP, to Ekiti to supervise security arrangements for Saturday’s governorship election.

This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer.

The statement stated that Bala Nasarawa, an AIG, would be assisted by CP Ikechukwu Aduba, while CP Hosea Karma would take charge of the Police Mobile Force.

It stated that CPs Danladi Mshelbwala, Mohammed Ibrahim and Augustine Eubakhabokum, would be in charge of Ekiti North, Central and South, respectively.

Mr. Abubakar had earlier deployed Deputy Inspector-General of Police (Operations), Mike Zuokumor, to coordinate security before, during and after the election.

The statement stated that there would be restriction of movement in and out of Ekiti from 6 p.m. on Thursday until the elections were over.

“On Saturday 21st June 2014, which is the day of the election, movements will be restricted within the state between 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“Consequently, Kwara, Kogi, Ondo and Osun, which are contiguous to Ekiti will have increased police presence with all entry and exit points in and out of Ekiti maximally policed.

“Persons on essential duties such as Ambulance service providers, INEC officials, security men, accredited election monitors/observers, accredited journalists, etc are not affected by this order”.

According to the statement, which acknowledged the citizen’s right to freedom of movement as enshrined in the constitution, the restriction is informed by the exigencies of overriding security considerations.

The statement added that the order was informed by the need to forestall plans by criminal elements to undermine the electoral process as gathered through intelligence reports.

It urged the people of the state to see the restriction as a necessary sacrifice to ensure a seamless, credible and successful gubernatorial election.

The statement also appealed to travellers to use alternate routes where necessary within the stipulated period.

All security details were warned to desist from accompanying their principals and politicians to polling booths and collation centres during the election.

“Only security personnel specially assigned for election duties must be seen within and around the election designated places,” he said.

“These measures are aimed at ensuring proper coordination of security operations for a hitch-free election, devoid of electoral fraud”, the statement read.

Talking Drum Singer, Ara: ‘I predicted Kefee’s Death’

ara stargist

Nigeria’s only female talking drummer, Ara disclosed that she told Kefee about her death about two years ago.

In a chat with Vanguard she said:

“I want to use this forum to appeal to my colleagues in the music industry. Less than two years ago, I had a dream about Kefee and immediately called her and narrated it to her, I also appealed to her not to make a joke of it….the rest is history.
Early this year, I had a dream and contacted Efe of NOW music as he’s the only one I could call and told him to please organise a forum for all musicians to assemble and pray against death amongst us (please confirm from Efe). It’s sad we had to lose my girlfriend, sister and colleague…so sad. When a revelation comes like that, it means there is a way out. Once again, we need to come together as a body under one roof to rebuke and pray about this revelation I had early this year. Yes, we all have different sources of prayer but this is a prayer we all must observe together. I beg you all. I didn’t want to speak out but I have no choice than to”

Yobo: Bosnia Match; a Must-Win

Nigeria skipper Joseph Yobo vows his side will fight for qualification in their second Group F game against Bosnia-Hercegovina on Saturday.

“Had we won against Iran, it would have been a different story. But the ball is still in our court and we will grow from strength to strength.

Yobo Joseph Says He Expects Both Nigeria and Bosnia To Get At Each Other from the Blast of the Whistle.

“It will be an exciting game, very different from the game against Iran, who sat back in the defence.

Popular Ghanaian/Nollywood Actress: ‘I’m Too Busy To Have S*X, It’s For Idle People’

Ghanaian Actress Chichi Neblett in a recent interview with News-One that she is too busy to have s*x and does not even think about it.

Chichi parted ways with the father of her baby a few years ago and has since kept her love life out of the public domain.

She said:

“For me, once you are a strong woman and making your ends meet through your own work and business, what concern do you have with a man? Chichi is single and happy.”

“No I don’t have sx. I don’t even have the time to think about sx because I have been very busy with work, so I don’t think about sx at all. When you are idle and have nothing doing, then you have a lot going through your mind and it pops up, but in short I don’t think about sx,” she explained.

The Liberian born Ghanaian actress is among industry players, who got nominations for Sunday City People Entertainment Awards.

She was nominated for Best New Actress of the Year and Best Promising Actress categories. Chichi managed to break into Nigeria’s Nollywood industry recently.

She recently did a movie shot with Ini Edo, Funke Akindele and a number of others.

Six Anti-Amaechi Lawmakers List Impeachable Offences


The six anti-Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi members of the State House of Assembly, on Thursday, listed impeachable offences committed by the state governor and vowed that they would carry out his impeachment at the appropriate time.

The leader of the anti-Amaechi lawmakers, Mr. Evans Bipi, said the governor’s interference in the affairs of the state judiciary and meeting with other members of the House of Assembly at the Government House, Port Harcourt, were impeachable offences that would count against the governor when the time comes.

Bipi, who made this known in a telephone interview on Thursday with PUNCH, also listed the alleged poor handling of the monorail project and purported seizure of the allowances of the six lawmakers perceived to be opposed to Amaechi’s administration as some of the governor’s impeachable offences.

Apart from Bipi, the other anti-Amaechi lawmakers are Michael Okechukwu Chinda, Kelechi Godspower Nwogu, Martins Amaewhule, Victor Ihunwo and Ikuinyi-Owaji Ibani.

He said, “But why is Amaechi afraid of impeachment? If he has not committed any impeachable offence, why is he afraid? Interfering in the affairs of the judiciary alone is an impeachable offence; meeting with lawmakers in Government House is an impeachable offence because that is not the hallowed chamber.

“Again, seizing our (six lawmakers) allowances, salaries and constituency projects funds is an impeachable offence. The poor handling of the monorail project is an impeachable offence.

“He used the project to siphon Rivers money. I have the figures on the monorail project and I will give them to you later. So, if he (Amaechi) has not committed an impeachable offence, why is he afraid?”

Bipi, however, explained that his group are not in a hurry to remove the governor from office, adding that the axe of impeachment would not pass over Amaechi’s head at the appropriate time.

“I can proudly say that we, the responsible and law abiding members of the Rivers State House of Assembly have said it time without number that we have no such plan to impeach Governor Amaechi, even though he is guilty of so many impeachable offences.

“We have the intention to impeach and when we do that, he will know that we are in the majority. We will impeach him when the time comes. But for now, we have no plan to impeach the governor. But he knows that he has committed a lot of impeachable offences”, Bipi added.

In his reaction, Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Otelemaba Dan-Amachree, said Amaechi was not under any threat of impeachment even as he noted that the governor had not committed any impeachable offence.

The speaker, who made his position known through his Press Secretary, Mr. Jim Okpiki, explained that nobody would stay by the roadside and talk about the impeachment of the governor, adding that the plan of the six anti-Amaechi lawmakers would fail.

“The issue here is that there has not been any list of impeachable offences brought before the Speaker and the House has adjourned indefinitely. You cannot just stay on the roadside and talk about impeachment.

“Those saying the governor has committed impeachable offences should make bold their threat if they can. The truth is that there is always a new strategy to keep those causing this crisis in business. Governor Amaechi is not under any threat of being impeached”, he stressed.

Govs. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun and Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun, were also there.

Former Arch-Bishop of Ibadan, Alaba Job; Primate Ola Makinde and Abimbola Fashola, wife of Lagos State Governor, also attended.

Malam Abdurahaman Ahmad, National Missioner, Ansar-u-deen Society of Nigeria, implored the rich to emulate the philanthropic virtues of Arishekola.

“Arisekola was generous, friendly and accommodating to all and sundry, especially the downtrodden’’, he said.

Gov. Abiola Ajimobi extolled the virtues of the late religious leader, describing him as a philanthropist of philanthropists, who served the poor and also helped the rich during his lifetime.

“Aare was to the Nigerian masses what the late President Nelson Mandela was to the South Africans.

“He served the poor and helped the rich. He came to serve humanity and served them to his very last.

“He was accommodating, spiritual, religious and intelligent. He had been serving the poor from the age of 19. He was the greatest philanthropist of our time.

“Aare gave everything he had for the benefit of the people’’, the governor added.

Ajimobi said it was the good works done by the late business mogul that motivated his government into declaring seven days of mourning and a public holiday for him.

He said such a feat was unprecedented in the history of the state.

The remains of Arisekola were laid to rest at 11.15 a.m. in his Oluwokekere residence in Bashorun, Ibadan.

Security operatives had a hard time controlling over one thousand people who forced their way into the premises with many falling and sustaining minor injuries. (NAN)

R.I.P: Another Young Nigerian Musician Dies


This month hasn’t been a very good month for Nigerian entertainers.

Just a week after the tragic news about gospel singer Kefee’s death rocked Nigeria, another young musician passed away in her 20s.

The fast rising Imo State-born artiste Cynthia Akudo Jonah, aka Cynthomania (or Ada Owerri), was said to have died on June 18 following the brief illness.

Cynthia recently released a single “Ukwu Ajebutter”, was set to drop her debut album soon.

The sad news was officially provided by Cynthomania’s manager who didn’t give any further details.

May her tender soul rest in peace.

Two anti-corruption crusaders in Imo state allege intimidation and rights violation by the state government for exposing corruption in the state
By Chidiebere Onyemaizu
When a citizen squeals on monumental corruption and stinking underhand deals amongst top functionaries of a system he was an insider, should intimidation, harassment, threat to life, unlawful detention and trumped-up charges be his reward for daring to make such exposure? And why should another anti-corruption crusader who helped to bring the issue to the public domain also become an endangered specie?
This is the jigsaw Kenneth Uwadi, a social and anti-corruption crusader, wants the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to solve. In a petition dated June 6, 2014 addressed to the Commission, Uwadi who is the Coordinator of Youths Against Human Rights Violation and Corrupt Practices (YAHVCP) revealed that Samuelson Iwuoha, former Media Aide to the Speaker of Imo state House of Assembly, Benjamin Uwajimogu, is currently incarcerated by the Imo state government on account of his corruption allegation against the Speaker. Uwadi’s petition:” I wish to bring to your notice, the human rights violations currently taking place in Imo state… the government of Imo state has thrown a popular Imo state anti-corruption activist, Samuelson Iwuola and members of his family, including his wife in jail without trial since June 3, 2014.”
According to Uwadi, Iwuoha was whisked away by security agents on June 3, 2014 after gunmen had made an attempt on his life. A band of hoodlums, allegedly at the behest of the government had gone on a rampage at his residence to intimidate him for not shifting from his position of alerting Imo people that corruption runs rampant in the state.
Uwadi, who is also an Online blogger stated that, the hoodlums, in the process of intimidating Iwuoha murdered an innocent bystander. “They killed an innocent bystander to send the message loud and clear to Mr. Samuelson that some “other things” are imminent. When the gunmen opened fire, people scampered to safety and some persons ran into his apartment, the person murdered was no murdered in Samuelsons apartment”.
Uwadi told the NHRC in his petition that the police in collaboration with Speaker Uwajimogu are now plotting to charge Iwuoha for murder and cultism to silence him. “His only crime is that he was opening politicians’ corrupt deals and telling them to stop stealing Imo people money,” he informed the NHRC.
In what could be termed guilty by association, Uwadi who hails from Mmahu –Egbema in Ohaji/Egbema as Samuelson, is alleging that the Imo state government is desperately searching for an alibi to frame him up for daring to speak up against alleged corrupt tendencies of Rochas Okorocha’s government:
“I have also been reliably informed that the government of Imo state is also looking for what to frame me with so as to come after me,” Uwadi told the NHRC.
According to Uwadi, the government is after him, among other things, because he demanded accountability from the Okorocha administration: “They are after me because I asked them to tell Imo people what happened to N26.27 billion left behind by former governor Ikedi Ohakim. I asked them why they borrowed N45 billion and N28 billion Naira in loans from banks with Imo LGA allocation as collateral for three years and the money squandered,” he lamented.
Continuing, Uwadi who runs FAMOUS NAIJA blog stated that the Imo state government is equally after him because “I asked the Speaker of Imo state House of Assembly who looted N3 billion Imo tax payers’ money and used the money to build eye popping mansions all over while he is still in government. I asked why Jude Ejiogu, the Chief of Staff to the Imo State governor who looted N1 billion Imo LGA pension funds is honoured with appointments upon appointments. I told them that Ejiogu also looted tax monies paid by banks in the state.”
The anti-corruption crusader further alleged that “governor Okorocha is looting the 13 per cent oil derivation funds of oil producing Areas in Imo State ISOPADEC” and lamented that because of his crusade against corruption in the state, he has endured all manners of indignities from the state government including “using police to harass me, branding me thief, blackmailer etc.”




Some months ago, I made a telling revelation that the sum of 1 billion naira belonging to pensioners in the 27 LGA of Imo State was “squandered” by Sir Jude Ejiogu the current Chief of Staff to the Governor of Imo State. Ejiogu squandered this money when he was the Chairman of Imo State Local …Government Service Commission. I lamented the “squandering of the significant sum of 1 billion naira and another 3 billion naira looted by the Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly Mr Benjamin Uwajumogu. I cried out because most Imolites but especially the poor, continue to suffer the effect of failing public health and education system as well as decrepit infrastructure and battered institutions. I highlighted what I see as the dawn of naked impunity in Imo State.

Uwajumogu, Ejiogu and their megaphones have called me all sorts of names. I have been threatened, i have been harassed and i have been closely monitored. They want to shut me up by all means. But as a citizen of Imo State, I am not intimidated. I will continue to speak out. One of the fundamental elements of democracy is the right to free speech without having others trample on your opinion. The capitalist thieving vampires currently in power in Imo state are looting our monies and yet they want us to shut up. They also want us to vote them again in 2015 for another round of impunity.

I am not accusing these men falsely as they are claiming. I speak the truth about their fraudulent activities with anger. You will recall that in May, 2011, Owelle Rochas Okorocha took power from Ikedi Ohakim as Governor of Imo State. There was high hope by the masses that Okorocha’s rule will bring an end to mass poverty, worsening living conditions, mass unemployment, suppression of democratic rights, massive corruption, and insecurity of lives and property. But more than 3 years after, the high expectations of Imolites for real positive change in their lives have been shattered. Not only has there been no substantial improvement in the lives of the Imo working masses, in some respect the situation has become worse. Thousands of Ndi-Imo still live without access to good food, housing, good roads, water, electricity and healthcare while Okorocha and his men are looting our monies.

The anti-poor policies of sales of Imo public assets, commercialization of health, housing and other social services, and sack of workers in Imo State have made more and more Imolites poorer and the rich minority richer. Corruption among the elite has not only remained, it has become more sophisticated. Imo State has become one of the most unequal societies in the world, with the richest 20% of Imolites getting 55.7% of the state’s total income while the poorest 20% are left to struggle for just 4.4%. Currently Imo faces gargantuan problems in all areas of socio-economic and political endeavours. The State has further nosedived under the Owelle Rochas Okorocha’s government, lower than any other time since 1999. In every area you look at the only conclusion you will come to is that the Okorocha’s government has failed Imo people resoundingly.

Mind you, when i say Okorocha has failed Imo , it is not an isolated opinion. Indeed this is the opinion of the mass majority of Imolites. According to a FAMOUS NAIJA opinion poll conducted in August 2013 , 81% of Nigerians assessed Okorocha’s performance in Imo as very bad; but only 19% assessed his performance as very well and fairly well. In March 2014 another FAMOUS NAIJA opinion poll was conducted and 85% of Nigerians think the present Owelle Rocha’s government has performed very badly in improving the living standard of the poor while only 15% think he is doing very well in improving the living standard of the poor.

The most serious aspect of Imo’s problems is the poor and hopeless condition of the youths. Today unemployment has become a permanent feature of the life of Imo youth. Governor Okorocha has failed to offer Imo youths a real future. He sacked 10,000 Imolites from the civil service in year 2011.The 10,000 sacked youths are suffering today.

I cannot keep quite and watch Okorocha and his men loot Imo dry.Last week, I was in Bonny Island in Rivers State of Nigeria . I arrived the Island in the morning by boat and was amazed to see that the Island has electricity as the eyes could see . I turned to Mrs Hart who came to welcome me and I inquired about the reliability of electricity in the Island. “It’s steady,” She said. “How often do you see power outages?” I asked. She said “we have light here 247.If they take it,it comes back in 15 minutes time. In fact, I can’t remember the last time we witness power outage here in Bonny. It is pay as you go. You recharge your card and your light is on” I could hardly mask my bewilderment and sense of humiliation!I felt humiliated because I am from an oil producing kingdom like Bonny called Egbema in Imo State. By contrast, the people of Egbema’s narrative in terms of electricity is awful .

Power supply is non-existent in the 13 Egbema towns. Since Governor Rochas Okorocha came into power in 2011, the people of Egbema have not seen electricity. Yet on monthly basis 13 percent oil derivation fund is paid to Imo State for the development of the oil producing areas in Imo. Out of this 13 percent oil derivation found 40 percent is meant for ISOPADEC, the commission set up to develop Imo oil areas. Where are the monies? From may 2011 to December 2013 Imo state received N16,613,768,782.98 (sixteen billion, six hundred and thirteen million seven hundred and sixty eight thousand seven hundred and eighty naira ninety eight kobo) as 13 percent oil derivation funds for development of the oil communities in Imo State. Find below the monthly breakdown.

May 2011 N278,919,682.00 June 2011 N491,415,545.00 July 2011 N607,508,024.40 August 2011 N691479700.1 September 2011 N650318411.4 October 2011 N742,626,299.53 November 2011 N506556992.7 December 2011 N513122495.7 January 2012 N624755732.8 February 2012 N430283610 March 2012 N495,802,869 April 2012 N530,948,180.82 May 2012 N414,451,615.90 June 2012 N557,851,267.36 July 2012 N441286601.6 August 2012 N563593288.1 September 2012 N436,366,936.76 October 2012 N507,915,584.96 November 2012 N453147887.2 December 2012 N433,746,138.22 January 2013 N548,284,488.83 Febuary 2013 N433,812,735.87 March 2013 N548908424.6 April 2013 N702685396.7 May 2013 N536243879.4 June 2013 N533,171,999.86 July 2013 N465,435,601.16 August 2013 N464,118,297.86 September 2013 N596,526,274.32 October 2013 N702681346.1 November 2013 N439,814,732.12 December 2013 N548,908,424.70 Where are the monies? The monies have developed wings. It is so sad to note that leaders from Ohaji/Egbema/Oguta where Imo oil money comes from are not speaking about the comatose ISOPADEC. Schools, water, road and hospital rehabilitation in Ohaji/Egbema/Oguta which form part of the duties of ISOPADEC remain in their same dilapiladated state and the political class from the oil area are not speaking about the development. Next week I will give you figures of LGA funds looted in Imo state. Do we allow just one person in the capacity of governor Rochas Okorocha to continue to make our mothers and grandparents suffer helplessly in the villages? Do we continue to allow the governor of Imo State to deprive local governments of the funds needed to build schools, roads, motor parks, markets etc.? Do we continue to herald him with the title “His Excellency” when he has made us beggars and impoverished us in a perpetual state of squalor?

Do we continue to clap for Owelle Rochas Okorocha at the commissioning of petty projects, which is far below the commensurate allocation given to him? Let’s ask questions now ,otherwise we shall continue to cry aloof with no one to beckon on us. We shall bear the pains of our parents been rejected in the hospitals for our inability to pay their medical bills, our siblings shall continue to be denied admission because of free education on paper while schools are denied developmental funds. We shall be tempted to become kidnappers and arm robbers at our own peril. Let us stop placing ourselves in subservient position, thereby helping an uncaring governor to achieve his deadly political ambitions at the expense of the state. Wisdom is profitable, how long shall we continue to be fooled?

Oyo State Big Player, Alhaji Arisekola Alao Is Dead

The Oyo State business man and Aare Musulumi of Yoruba land is dead. He passed on today in London at 69

Abdulazeez Arisekola Alao is a notable Nigerian businessman and contractor who was the publisher of the now defunct Monitor Newspaper. He is considered a wealthy businessman who is known for his causes in support of Islam in Ibadan and his close ties to many of the city’s traditional and religious elites and to various other Yoruba Muslim leaders. He bears the title of Aare Musulumi of Yorubaland.

Arisekola saw his fortunes rise during the regimes of Ibrahim Babangida and Sani Abacha while his style is sometimes criticized as favoring any regime that can butter his nest. He was both a friend of MKO Abiola and Sani Abacha but was actively involved in supporting the latter to elongate his tenure through a transition from military to democratic leadership.

Born in 1945 to Abdul Raheem Alao and Olatutu Alao, he attended St Luke’s Primary School, Adigun and ICC Primary school, he also studied Arabic Studies. In 1960, he was with the Ogunpa-Oyo Commercial Center before venturing into full time business a year later. His traditional commercial focus is in auto sales, flour mills and oil marketing through his Lister brand, he has also developed interest in real estate, insurance, banking and publishing.

Originally, he came from humble means, joining his uncle as an apprentice in Gbagi market of Ibadan in 1960. He left in 1961 to sell gammalin 20 vide and later became an agent of Imperial Chemical Industries.

By the 1970s, he was a dealer of Datsun brand of motors under Lister Motors.

In the 1970s and 80s: Arisekola was serenaded by the Juju singer Ebenezer Obey around the late 1970s while later being conferred with the title of Aare Musulumi of Yorubaland by the league of Imams and Alfas from the region in 1980. Though, along with his friend, Abiola, he courted controversy and raised already existent inter-religious tension when he raised issues about the location an iconic cross to depict places of worship at the University of Ibadan. The cross which was erected in the 1950s when only a church was a place of worship at the institution but Muslim worshipers claimed that the cross was located on the Eastern side of the mosque and was a violation of Islamic requirements not to see an idol, cross or effigy during worship. In 1990, he was co-chair of a committee interested in promoting cross fertilization of ideas and inter-religious understanding between Christians and Muslims.

During the democratic period of the Sani Abacha era, Arisekola, along with Lamidi Adedibu pitched his tent with the Democratic Party of Nigeria also known as DPN. However, his closeness with the Abacha administration has erred him detractors within Yorubaland. His Monitor Press outfit was burnt in May 1998 during the aftermath of the campaign for the prolongation of the Abacha government and right after the death of Abacha, a visit to University of Ibadan caused a minor riot when students shouted down at him and proceeded to burn his limousine as a result of anger fueled at him due to his relationship with the corrupt Abacha administration.

Arisekola doubles as the president-general of the Grand Council for Islamic Affairs and member of the Board of Trustees of the Nigeria Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, NSCIA.

In Ibadan Arisekola has contributed to many Islamic causes including the construction of mosques and alms giving to many residents who troop to his home. He is a patron to many Yoruba Muslim groups including the youth wing of the National Council of Musim Youth Organizations of Nigeria (NACOMYO) and some Yoruba Muslim womens group.

Aside from that, Alhaji Abdul Azeez Arisekola ALao is a man of honour both home and abroad. His a forthright leader and a father who loves people making it in life; if you understand is way of life.



It has now been revealed that the Imo state police command in conspiracy with the speaker of Imo state House of Assembly, Mr. Benjamin Uwajumogu is playing politics with the release and bail of detained socio-political crusader, Citizen Ikenna Samelson Iwuoha and his wife.

Having woefully failed to arraign the activist in court so as to  have him reprimanded in prison custody, the police authority came to the conclusion that it will be better to dance around with the release of Iwuoha.

It should be recalled that Samuelson, his wife and 17 others were released on the 6th of June,2014 on the  orders of the Imo state Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha through his Chief of staff Sir Jude Ejiogu and on the fact that it was discovered through security meetings that Iwuoha and his family were not involved in the murder of the young man but in order to justify the money they allegedly collected from Speaker Uwajumogu to victimize Ikenna Samuelson, the police authority have  resorted to playing  hide and seek games with effecting the release order fearing that Ikenna Samuelson will drag them to court for illegal detention.

A source from the police command has said that the police will defend themselves by claiming that Citizen Iwuoha has refused to bring a credible guarantor to take him on bail but the whole truth is that the social crusader has been bringing people including lawyers to take him on bail but the police have been dancing  to the Ihitte Uboma  music of Mr Benjamin Uwajumogu.

When will this obvious injustice come to an end? Imo must be better indeed.
