Terrorist/ Bandit on rampage in Borno state.

The war against terrorism in the northeastern region has been tense, with the terrorists refusing to succumb to the offensive launched by the military. A few days ago, members of the Islamic State in West African Province (ISWAP) kidnapped some Borno State Government Officials who were supervising the construction of the Chibok-Danboa road. Another report also revealed the abduction of some passengers including workers of an international non-governmental organization by members of the same terrorist group – the victims are reportedly held captive at Sambisa forest.

The recent happenings in Borno state show that these terrorists are overwhelming our military. Members of the public have urged the Nigerian Air Force to intensify its aerial offensive against the terrorists with the aid of the Super Tucano Fighter Jets at their disposal.

Instead of attacking from the air at the moment, ground soldiers should raid Sambisa forest and their other hideouts to rescue the abductees in their custody.

As Nigerians are optimistic that the military will flush out these terrorists in no time, cases of collateral damages have to be reduced to the barest minimum during attacks.


What is Convulsion?

What is Convulsion?

A convulsion is an episode in which you experience rigidity and uncontrolled muscle spasms along with altered consciousness. The spasms cause jerky motions that generally last a minute or two.

Convulsions can occur during certain kinds of epileptic seizures, but you can have convulsions even though you don’t have epilepsy. Convulsions can be a symptom of a number of conditions, including a sudden fever spike, tetanus, or very low blood sugar.

Risk factors of Convulsion

Certain factors may increase your risk of convulsion:

  • Age
  • Family history
  • Head injuries
  • Stroke and other vascular diseases
  • Dementia
  • Brain infections
  • Prolonged fever
  • Hyper pyrexia
  • Seizures in childhood
  • Electrolytes imbalance


Several different conditions can cause convulsions, including:

Epileptic seizures

According to the Epilepsy Foundation, epilepsy is a condition that causes a person to experience many seizures.

Seizures are electrical disturbances in the brain. There are many different types of seizure, which each have different symptoms.

Sometimes, epileptic seizures can cause a person to experience convulsions. The most common type is called tonic-clonic seizures. “Tonic” means stiffening while “clonic” means jerking. These movements describe the primary characteristics of the seizure.

In addition to convulsions, a person may also make a groaning noise as air travels forcefully past their vocal cords.

Many people think of convulsions when they refer to epileptic seizures, but some seizures do not result in convulsions.

For example, an absence seizure is when a person remains motionless and unresponsive during an electrical disturbance in the brain.

Febrile seizures

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), febrile seizures can affect children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years who are experiencing a fever.

Febrile seizures cause convulsions that typically last up to 5 minutes.

The majority of febrile seizures do not have any lasting negative impact on a child. They are generally harmless and do not require treatment.

However, if the seizure goes on for more than 5 minutes, or if the child does not recover quickly, it is essential to call an ambulance.

Non-epileptic seizures

According to the NINDS, non-epileptic seizures are seizures that appear to be epilepsy but are not due to electrical disturbances in a person’s brain.

Doctors believe non-epileptic seizures are “psychogenic” illnesses. This means they occur due to mental or emotional stress. For this reason, doctors sometimes refer to them as “psychogenic non-epileptic seizures.”

Doctors often recommend psychological therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, to help treat non-epileptic seizures. These treatments help a person manage the underlying stress causing the seizures.

Paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia

According to the National Centre for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia (PKD) is a rare condition that causes convulsions.

PKD seizures typically happen after a person experiences a sudden motion, such as being startled or standing up.

The convulsions typically last less than 5 minutes but can last longer in some cases. A person will usually experience fewer episodes as they get older.

It is a genetic condition, which means a parent can pass it on to their children.

Research has found that anticonvulsant drugs, such as carbamazepine are an effective treatment for PKD.

Medication reactions

In rare cases, certain medications can cause epileptic seizures with convulsions. The Epilepsy Foundation provides an extensive list of toxins and drugs that could trigger epileptic seizures.


There is some evidence that migraines may lead to epileptic seizures. This is called migralepsy.

However, other researchTrusted Source disputes this understanding of migralepsy. More research is necessary to help determine whether migralepsy is a distinct condition.

What are the symptoms of convulsion?

Convulsions are easy to spot, with symptoms such as:

  • Lack of awareness, loss of consciousness
  • Eyes rolling back in the head
  • Face that appears red or blue
  • Changes to breathing
  • Stiffening of the arms, legs, or whole body
  • Jerky movements of the arms, legs, body, or head
  • Lack of control over movements
  • Inability to respond

These symptoms usually last from a few seconds to several minutes, though they can last longer.

Children may be cranky after a febrile convulsion and some may fall into a deep sleep lasting an hour or more.

Complications of Convulsion

Possible Complications include:

  • Difficulty learning.
  • Breathing in food or saliva into the lungs during a seizure, which can cause aspiration pneumonia.
  • Injury from falls, bumps, self-inflicted bites, driving or operating machinery during a seizure.
  • Permanent brain damage (stroke or other damage)


To diagnose the cause of a convulsion, a doctor will first take a medical history and consider any other symptoms a person has, followed by a physical examination. This likely will be followed by a focus on potential neurological causes or conditions that can trigger abnormal brain activity.

Neurological Exam

A neurological examination is a series of in-office tests to assess mental status, motor function, balance, coordination, reflexes, and sensory responses.7 It typically involves instruments like a penlight or reflex hammer and is not painful.

A neurological workup can help a doctor determine if a convulsion occurred because of an issue with the central nervous system.

Electroencephalogram (EEG)

If a neurologic disorder is suspected, the doctor will likely order an electroencephalogram (EEG), a non-invasive test in which electrodes attached to the head measure electrical brain activity.

In some cases, an EEG may require an overnight hospital stay in order to “catch” a convulsive episode when it occurs.8 certain abnormal brain patterns may be suggestive of epilepsy, a brain injury, brain tumor, or other neurologic disorders.

Blood and Lab Tests

Blood tests may be ordered to check for signs of infection, electrolyte imbalances, and generalized markers of inflammation. A drug toxicology report may also be ordered.

  • If epilepsy is suspected, the doctor will order a blood test that measures the amount of the hormone prolactin. This can help determine whether the convulsive episodes were caused by epilepsy or another disorder.
  • If meningitis is suspected, the doctor may order a lumbar puncture in which a needle is inserted into the lower spine to extract a sample of fluid. An evaluation of the fluid in the lab can detect if there an infection is involved.

Imaging Studies

Imaging studies can check for evidence of brain lesions or tumors as well as signs of bleeding, clots, or subdural effusion (an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the skull). The choice of study depends on the suspected cause and may include.

  • Computerized tomography (CT): Uses X-ray to obtain cross-sectional images of the brain.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): Uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create a detailed image of the brain.
  • Positron emission tomography (PET): Low-dose radioactive materials are injected into a vein to detect metabolic abnormalities suggestive of cancer.

What’s the treatment for convulsion?

When it comes to febrile convulsions in children, there may not be a need for treatment other than to address the cause of the fever. Sometimes your doctor may prescribe medication to use if another febrile convulsion occurs.

If seizures and convulsions become frequent, your doctor may recommend medicines that can help prevent seizures. Treatment options will depend on the cause.

What to do if you’re with someone who’s having a convulsion

It can be unsettling to see someone having convulsions, but it’s important to try to remain calm.

  • Try to cushion their head with something soft
  • Tilt them to one side to ease breathing
  • Move anything hard or sharp out of the way so they don’t hurt themselves
  • Loosen any clothing around the neck and remove eyeglasses
  • Check for a medical ID
  • Call for medical assistance
  • Stay with them until the convulsion is over and they’re fully aware

What not to do if someone is having a convulsion

  • Put anything in their mouth because this presents a choking hazard
  • Restrain the person or try to stop convulsions
  • Leave a person having a convulsion alone
  • Try to lower a child’s fever by putting them in the bathtub during a convulsion

Febrile convulsions are likely to end before you can call for help. Try to lower the fever by taking off extra blankets and heavy clothing. Offer comfort and reassurance.

Consult with your doctor before giving medications. After a convulsion, a child may be irritable for a couple of days. Stick to usual sleep times and allow the child to sleep in their own bed.

Tips to prevent convulsion

  • Take your medication as prescribed
  • Don’t consume alcohol
  • Avoid substance misuse
  • Practice stress management
  • Maintain a sleep schedule
  • Keep a consistent meal schedule
  • Avoid flashing lights
  • Protect yourself from head injuries
  • Call a medical professional if your infant has a high fever
  • Consider surgery

Police arrest 13 Armed Thugs among hundreds who attacked and set ablaze Senator Barau Jibrin Gubernatorial Campaign Office in Kano.

The Kano State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of 13 Armed Thugs among hundreds who attacked and set ablaze Senator Barau Jibrin Gubernatorial Campaign Office in Kano.

spokesman of the Command, DSP Haruna Abdullahi Kiyawa said at about 0800hrs, Thursday, they received reports that thugs (Yan Daba) carrying dangerous weapons were sighted vandalizing the office of Barau Jibrin, a Senator representing Kano North Senatorial District along Maiduguri Road Kano.

He said the Commissioner of Police, Kano State Command, CP Sama’ila Shu’aibu Dikko, raised and instructed teams of Operation Puff Adder to move to the scene, restore normalcy and arrest the culprits.

Kiyawa noted, that the teams immediately swung into action, arrested the thirteen suspected thugs (Yan Daba) and recovered 34 dangerous weapons, 23 clubs (Gora), 2 gallons of suspected PMS (Petrol), 1 parcel and 30 pieces of dried leaves, suspected to be Indian Hemp, 24 sachets of Diazepam tablets, 4 pieces of red sun solution, 1 mobile phone, 2 ceiling fans and a bunch of charms

Normalcy was immediately restored and the situation under control. Investigations have commenced and suspects will be charged to court for prosecution.

The Commissioner of Police, has, however, warned that criminals will have no hiding place in Kano State. They are advised to either repent or leave the state completely. Otherwise, they will be arrested and face the full wrath of the law.

He thanked the people of Kano State for their prayers, encouragement, continuous support and cooperation, urging them to pray for the state, the nation and report incidences to the nearest Police Station and not take laws into their hands.

Rigorous patrol and raids of criminal hideouts and black spots will continue throughout the State, as the Command will sustain the ongoing “Operation Puff Adder, he said.


Terrorist kidnap 15 people, mostly passengers and motorists, along the same road.

Barely few hours after the Boko Haram sect, suspected to be ISWAP group, abducted six staff working with Borno State Ministry of Work with snatching of three trucks and a Hilux van along Chibok-Damboa Road, another 15 people, mostly passengers and motorists, were kidnapped along the same road.

The incident took place at about 2p.m. on Wednesday, but due to lack of telecommunication network, delayed access to information.

Just yesterday(Wednesday), we witnessed twin abduction of motorists and passengers, who were forcefully taken to an unknown destination. 

The road runs through the Sambisa Forests and it appears the insurgents are out to kidnap innocent people to initiate them into their evil atrocities.

The abduction of the 15 persons happened near Gumsuri village located along the Chibok-Damboa Road.

The villager, who did not want his name mentioned, added via a telephone call.

All efforts to get confirmation from the Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Sani Shatambaya, proved abortive.

However, a reliable stakeholder in Gumsuri village confirmed the incident, informing that the abandoned vehicles of the victims were still at the scene as at Thursday morning.

The House of Representatives on Thursday invited the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, to clear the air.

The House of Representatives on Thursday invited the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, to clear the air on the cost implication of conducting direct primaries by political parties in the country.

According to the resolution passed by the House on a motion of urgent public importance, sponsored by Chairman, House Committee on Customs & Excise, Hon. Leke Abejide, the INEC Chairman is expected to appear before the joint House Committees on Appropriations and Electoral Matters.

In his lead debate, Hon. Abejide who frowned at the speculation making the rounds that it would cost over N500 billion for political parties to conduct direct primaries ahead of the 2023 general elections, noted that the controversy will determine the fate of the Electoral Act (Repeal and Re-enactment) Bill 2021 which is awaiting President Muhammadu Buhari’s assent.

He noted that as the umpire supervising both the primaries of political parties and the main elections, Professor Yakubu would be the appropriate INEC official to clear the air on the actual cost implications of conducting direct primaries.

He said: “We all know the importance of direct primaries. Some people say it will cost N500 billion.

“This is mere speculation because the cost of direct primaries may be within the budget of INEC.”

While stressing the need for timely legislative intervention, he urged the House to invite the INEC Accounting Officer before the passage of the 2022 budget.

While ruling, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila who presided over the plenary, mandated the “Committees on INEC and Appropriation, please invite the INEC chairman so that he can give us the possible cost implications of direct primaries.”

What is Catarrh?

What is Catarrh?

Catarrh is when mucus accumulates in your nose, throat, or sinuses. The word “catarrh” comes from an ancient Greek phrase meaning “to flow down.” In fact, if you have catarrh, you may feel as if mucus is slowly dripping down the back of your throat.

The word “catarrh” isn’t very common in the United States. Another term for catarrh that you may be more familiar with is “postnasal drip.”

It’s believed that catarrh happens when your body responds to things like an infection or an irritant. This reaction can cause swelling in your nose and sinuses, leading to an increase in the amount of mucus that’s made.

Catarrh is often only temporary. However, in some people, it can become chronic. While it’s unclear what causes chronic catarrh, it’s believed to occur due to an increased awareness of and sensitivity to symptoms affecting the nose and throat.

Two Types of Catarrh

There appears to be two types of catarrh.

  • There are some patients who experience catarrh with an excess of mucus that actually runs out of their nose (known as ‘rhinitis’).
  • There are other patients, however, who experience the same sensation of an excess of mucus but are unable to clear anything out of their nose or their throat. This can be frustrating for them.

Mechanism of Catarrh

The exact mechanism of catarrh depends on its etiology, but usually involves increased production of mucus from the nasal mucosa. In addition to providing sense of smell, the nasal cavity serves to filtrate and regulate the temperature and humidity of inspired air. The nasal mucosa can produce secretions, or mucus, that provides lubrication and protection for the nasal cavity. This mucus production is activated by the autonomic nervous system; specifically, cholinergic neuropeptides are responsible for increasing mucus production. Excess mucus can drain posteriorly into the upper and lower airways, which, along with other physical and chemical irritants, can activate receptors in the respiratory tract that results in a protective physiological cough

Causes of Catarrh

Catarrh usually occurs when the immune system reacts to an infection or irritation. This causes the lining of your nose and throat to become swollen and produce mucus.

Triggers include:

  • A cold or other infection
  • Hay fever or other types of allergic rhinitis
  • Non-allergic rhinitis
  • Nasal polyps

It’s unclear what causes chronic catarrh, but it’s not thought to be the result of an allergy or infection.

It might be from a problem in the way mucus travels through the nose. It could also be caused by a sensitivity to mucus in the back of the nose and throat.

What are the risk factors for Catarrh?

Risk factors include:

  • Cigarette smoking. Being a current or former smoker is a major risk factor for catarrh. It is caused by breathing cigarette toxins or second-hand smoking directly into your lungs.
  • Exposure to someone with respiratory infections. Respiratory infections can be very contagious.
  • Allergies. People with allergies have an increased risk of developing catarrh when exposed to a specific allergy trigger.
  • Environmental. Some work places could have irritants in the air that you can breathe in and develop catarrh. High-pollution areas or using coal for cooking or heating can also increase your risk of catarrh.
  • Chronic lung diseases. People with asthma, enlarged airways (called bronchiectasis), COPD, and previous lung infections that have left scars on the lungs are at increased risk of developing catarrh.
  • Female sex. Women have a more sensitive cough reflex than men, increasing their risk of developing chronic catarrh.

What are the symptoms of Catarrh?

Aside from the feeling of mucus in the back of the nose or throat, there are a number of other symptoms of catarrh, including:

  • A sensation of nasal congestion
  • Ineffective nose blowing
  • Throat discomfort
  • Crackling or dragging sensation in the ears
  • A sensation of choking or something stuck in the throat
  • A constant cough or of feeling sick

Complications of Catarrh

Catarrh can lead to a:

  • Constant need to clear your throat
  • Feeling that your throat is blocked
  • Blocked or stuffy nose that you can’t clear
  • Runny nose
  • Feeling of mucus running down the back of your throat
  • Persistent cough
  • Headache or facial pain
  • Reduced sense of smell and taste
  • Crackling sensation in your ear and some temporary hearing loss

These problems can be frustrating to live with and may affect your sleep, making you feel tired.

Catarrh diagnosis

Most cases of acute catarrh do not need to be diagnosed as the underlying infection should pass quickly without treatment.

Chronic Catarrh

A number of different methods can be used to diagnose the causes of chronic (persistent) catarrh.

Your doctor may examine your nose to check that there are no nasal polyps. They may also recommend that you have a CT scan to check for polyps that are not visible to the naked eye.

Your doctor may also want to check that your catarrh is not the result of an allergic reaction. They may ask whether your symptoms are worse in particular environments, or at certain times of the day or year. This will help them to pinpoint a possible allergen (substance that causes an allergic reaction).

If your doctor suspects that an allergic reaction is causing your catarrh, they may refer you for allergy testing. This will usually involve a skin prick test, where allergens are placed on your arm and introduced into your skin by pricking it with a short pin. If there is a positive reaction, the skin in that area will become itchy, red and swollen.

Chronic catarrh can also be caused by non-allergic rhinitis. However, diagnosing non-allergic rhinitis can be difficult because it shares many of the same symptoms as allergic rhinitis, but there are no specific tests for the condition. If tests show that you are not having any allergic reactions, a diagnosis of non-allergic rhinitis can be made.

Treatments for Catarrh

Most catarrh cases require no specific treatment. But if it does not clear up on its own, treatment then depends on the underlying cause. Try the following:

Decongestant medicines

  • These can help relieve a blocked nose by reducing swelling of the blood vessels in your nose. These are available from pharmacies without a prescription but should not be used for more than a few days before seeking advice as they can occasionally make the congestion worse if used for too long.
  • Decongestants do not usually cause side-effects and, if they do, they are likely to be mild, but may include irritation to the lining of the nose, nausea and headaches.

Steam inhalation

  • Steam inhalation treatment may also help. This involves inhaling steam from a bowl of hot (but not boiling) water and can help to soften and loosen any mucus in the nasal cavities.
  • Some people find that adding menthol crystals or eucalyptus oil to the water also helps. Steam inhalation is not recommended as a suitable treatment for children due to the risk of scalding.

Saline sprays

  • Saline (salt water) sprays or drops can also soften and loosen the mucus and help relieve symptoms.

Prescription medications

  • If a person has chronic catarrh, their doctor may recommend ipratropium (Atrovent) or beclomethasone (Beconase) and triamcinolone (Nasacort).
  • Atrovent is a nasal spray that reduces the amount of mucus the body makes. Beconase and Nasacort are steroid sprays that can help ease the symptoms of chronic catarrh.

Home Remedies

There are things you can try at home to relieve your symptoms, such as:

  • Avoiding things that trigger your symptoms, such as allergens or smoky places
  • Taking sips of cold water when you feel the need to clear your throat – constantly clearing your throat may make things worse
  • Using a saline nasal rinse several times a day – these can be bought from a pharmacy or made at home with half a teaspoon of salt in a pint of boiled water that’s been left to cool
  • Avoiding warm, dry atmospheres, such as places with air conditioning and car heating systems – placing plants or bowls of water in a room may help to keep the air humid
  • Staying well hydrated
  • Talking to a pharmacist about suitable over-the-counter medications – including decongestants, antihistamines or steroid nasal sprays

There are also several remedies, such as herbal medicines, available from health shops and pharmacies that claim to treat catarrh. Some people find these helpful, but there’s generally little scientific evidence to suggest they work.

Outlook of Catarrh

Catarrh is a common occurrence. The best way to avoid it is to eliminate allergens or other triggers whenever possible. Most cases of postnasal drip are bothersome but clear up on their own.

Over-the-counter medications and home remedies are often successful treatments. People who experience persistent postnasal drip or postnasal drip accompanied by additional symptoms should see their doctor for diagnosis and treatment.


U.S. Embassy and the Nigerian Guild of Editors co-launched today in Lagos the first of six media-focused Town Halls and Workshop.

Recognizing the vital importance of a free press and ‘the fourth Estate” to democracy and good governance, the U.S. Embassy and the Nigerian Guild of Editors co-launched today in Lagos the first of six media-focused Town Halls and Workshops that will take place across the country in the next several months. The capacity-building program will provide a forum for over 200 participating Nigerian editors and leaders of the independent press to discuss and share best practices, and to also hear from U.S. experts on topics such as journalistic standards, identifying bias, and conducting fact-based investigative reporting to better inform the Nigerian public.

Delivering keynote remarks at the opening program in Lagos, U.S. Ambassador Mary Beth Leonard discussed the challenges faced by Nigeria and other democracies across the world and highlighted democracy’s greatest strengths: the ability to improve upon and reinvent itself. When the citizenry’s belief in democracy, good governance and elections are restored, invariably they will want to be a part of that system and will defend it.

Ambassador Leonard noted, Our hope is that in this forum today is that you will lead and serve as catalysts for further discussions on countering disinformation; increasing transparency; solution building; and encouraging media literacy and their contribution to a democracy that is accountable to its people.”

General Secretary Nigerian Guild of Editors, Iyobosa Uwugiaren, said, “At the end of the project, we expect to see a pool of Nigerian editors, senior journalists and media managers, who will be galvanised and committed to the highest ethical standard and to take robust actions to “Editors who will be committed to the promotion and protection of the right to independent press, freedom of expression and deepening democratic space; and constantly projecting issue-based governance in defence of the mass of the Nigerian people.

The Town Halls and editor workshops are supported through a grant from the U.S. Embassy’s Public Affairs Section in Abuja to the Nigerian Guild of Editors. The Town Halls and editor workshops are supported through a public diplomacy grant from the U.S. Embassy in Abuja to the Nigerian Guild of Editors. In addition to Lagos, the programs will take place in Kano in January 2022, Yola, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Enugu.

The U.S. government is committed to initiatives that build media capacity in Nigeria. For years, the U.S. Mission has funded partnerships that promote Nigeria’s democratic governance, unity and stability by improving government transparency and accountability, the rule of law, a free and professional media, as well as civil society capacity and engagement. Webinars, seminars, workshops, and U.S. based training opportunities such as the International Visitor Leadership Program and Foreign Press Center International Reporting Tours demonstrate our commitment to the proud partnership that we have long enjoyed with Nigeria.


Ngurore is notorious for harbouring criminal elements, including bandits and kidnap gangs.

Samuel was caught in Ngurore, a satellite town on the outskirt of Yola, the state capital. Ngurore is notorious for harbouring criminal elements, including bandits and kidnap gangs.

A 16-Year old boy, Sunza Samuel, has been arrested for unlawfully carrying firearms in Adamawa State.

Oneworldvisionnews Reporters learnt that the juvenile who hails from Dunge village in the Shelleng Local Government Area, was apprehended for being in possession of a revolver pistol.

Samuel was caught on October 2, 2021 in Ngurore, a satellite town on the outskirt of Yola, the state capital.

Ngurore is notorious for harbouring criminal elements, including bandits and kidnap gangs.

The police spokesperson for the state, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, confirmed the arrest to Oneworldvisionnews Reporters.

On December 2,2021, the command’s operatives attached to Ngurore, while on confidence building patrol, apprehended a 16-year old Sunza Samuel with a revolver pistol.

Also the command’s operatives attached to “anti shilla (criminal gang of teenaged boys/girls) squad” on December 1 disconnected a criminal network and recovered large quantity of weeds in a certain hideout situated at the remote side of Jambutu, Yola North.

The Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Barde, having commended the operatives for dislodging and reclaiming the public space, urged all the Divisional Police officers (DPOs) and their supervisory Area Commanders to intensify efforts in dislodging the crime network and denying the criminals opportunity to regroup anywhere in the state.
