Reno Omokri has taken out his time to drag a presidential aide, Garba Shehu, after it was reported that bandits blocked highway in Zamfara for 5 days.

The former special assistant to former president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has taken out his time to drag a presidential aide, Garba Shehu, after it was reported that bandits blocked highway in Zamfara for 5 days, killing six motorists.

While speaking, Reno Omokri stated it clearly that for five days, bandits blocked road in Zamfara State and were killing Nigerians at will, yet we claim to have a governenmt in Nigeria.

Speaking further, he stated I clearly that with all these killings, Garba Shehu said that Buhari should be praised for tackling insecuriy across the country. He ended his tweet by asking to know if Garba Shehu can travel to Zamfara alone without without security.

This is really sad and unfortunate. How can bandits block road in a country like Nigeria, yet the government is doing nothing about it. As for those who are claiming that this government has restored security across the country, they should just try what Reno Omokri has said here. They travel to Kaduna, Borno, Sokoto and Zamfara States without security, let’s see what will happen. May God save our dear country Nigeria.

IPOB lament, accuse Nigeria Government of killing Igbo youths in Imo State.

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Thursday, lamented the alleged killing of youths in the southeast, especially in Imo State.

It petitioned international organizations and human rights groups to join in the protest against the alleged genocide in the region.

IPOB made this known in a statement signed by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Mr. Emma Powerful, and made available to journalists in Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State.

It alleged that the killings of youths in the region, especially in Imo State, has forced traditional rulers, elders and religious leaders to go into hiding to avert attacks.

The statement reads in part: “There is ongoing secret genocide of our innocent youths for committing no crime other than going on flashy cars.

We condemn the numerous deaths going on especially this festive period in Imo State. The elders, religious leaders and traditional rulers in the region must ask the perpetrators what the youths of our region committed against them that warranted these killings.

The traditional rulers, elders and religious leaders have suddenly gone into hiding in Imo State. Imo youths have suffered in their hands.

The world should take note of these atrocities going on in Imo State and call the perpetrators to order. APC party and the Nigerian government should allow Imo State youths to go around their lawful businesses this festive season.

Amnesty International and other reputable human rights organisations should be aware of the evil perpetrated by Nigeria Government against Imo citizens this time.

They are just killing innocent people in the name of looking for ESN operatives. The gruesome killings going on now in Imo State are condemnable and unheard of.

“Why can’t they take those they arrest to their station for interrogation instead of killing them extra-judicially. Key questions to ask: Were these youths arrested with arms? Were they violent? Where on earth is it a crime to ride a flashy car?

Sadly as gunmen kill official of the FRSC in Ondo State.

Some persons suspected to be gunmen have killed an official of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Omiwoye Sunday, in Ondo town, Ondo State, The PUNCH reports.

The victim was reportedly trying to rescue a man, who was being mobbed, when he was killed.

His wife, Mrs Bunmi Sunday, said the incident happened on Sunday while she and her husband were visiting a family friend at the Agbala area of Ondo.

She said, My husband and I went to see one of his friends who stays on the same street with us. Suddenly, some men ran towards where we were standing by the gate. My husband was trying to park his motorcycle then. So, two gunmen came on a motorcycle and started beating the boy, who ran to us.

My husband challenged them and they warned him that they were not there for him and that he should go inside the gate. I went in immediately, but my husband still stood outside by his motorcycle.

Later, we heard a gunshot. I ran out of the gate and saw my husband on the floor in a pool of blood. The gunmen ran away with his phone and motorcycle key.

She called on security agents to investigate the incident and bring the perpetrators to book.

Omiwoye’s remains were deposited at the State Specialist Hospital morgue in Ondo for autopsy.

Efforts to speak with the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, proved abortive, as she did not pick her calls and the message sent to her was not replied to as of the time of filing this report.

Sultan of Sokoto Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar has lamented that terrorists kill people on a daily basis in the north.

The Sultan of Sokoto Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar has lamented that terrorists kill people on a daily basis in the northern part of the country especially in the North West and the killings are mostly not reported.

This is just as the Sultan called on Christians to disregard the recent threat by some unknown persons who warned that those found attending churches in Zamfara State will be killed.

Speaking at the 4th Quarter 2021 Meeting of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) with the theme ‘NIREC, Security Agencies and Peace in Nigeria’, the Sultan who is also the Co-Chair of NIREC, said there is no single day that passes without people being killed in the North.

If I continue talking about the insecurity in the North, we will not leave this room. A few days ago, we are witnesses to the media report on how people were killed in a bus in Sokoto, even though the figure is not correct, but even one life is important, there is no single day that passes without people being killed in the North especially in the North West now, but we don’t hear it.

When I saw a note that the bandits are threatening Christians in Zamfara, I asked what is the work of our security agencies, why will they come out and make such comment when you have not verified it because you are making people to be more frightened.

I will not stop going to the mosque to pray because I saw in a paper that if I go to the mosque I will be killed, let me be killed, I must die, so Christians should not be afraid of going to church to worship because an anonymous person is threatening them, he said.

He said Nigeria has a series of challenges facing it, and if leaders don’t wake up and come together to understand the issues facing the country, the challenges will escalate.

Let’s not deceive ourselves, everything is not alright. I have said this so many times, and to know that you have a problem, you have part of the solution. The earlier we rise up to the occasion, come together, the better for us,” the Sultan noted.

He, however, charged religious leaders to be wary of the kind of things they say to their followers, noting that their followers always believe that they speak things from the Holy Bible and Holy Koran.

We have to be careful in the way we handle, say and do things as religious leaders, we are not political leaders, therefore we have to be wary of what we say, where and how we say such things because our followers will definitely believe in what we say, they will believe and feel that it is from the Holy Koran or the Holy Bible.

We cannot go on telling things to people without thinking that they will believe, we cannot go on saying things that we know we don’t have full knowledge of, he said.

While advocating for dialogue to address some of the challenges in the country, Sultan Sa’ad Abubakar said the elites in the country have been the major problems the nation is facing.

I believe in dialogue, and l believe dialogue is the best option, we sit down and talk ourselves and come up with possible solutions to the problems of the majority, we are the minority here, we are the elites and the elites are the problems of this country because we always want things to go our way,” he added.

High Court in Abuja has struck out a N2 billion suit instituted against SaharaReporters and others.

The Federal High Court in Abuja has struck out a N2 billion suit instituted against SaharaReporters and others for alleged defamatory publication against the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.

A group, Incorporated Trustee of Global Integrity Crusade Network, had in the suit accused SaharaReporters, Vanguard Media Limited and two others of defamation against Malami.

The group had prayed the court to compel the defendants to jointly pay Malami the N2 billion as compensation for the trauma, emotional stress, damage and or injury caused the AGF due to the alleged propaganda, fake news and blackmail published in the July 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 18, 2020 edition of their media organisation.

But during the trial held on Thursday, the court dismissed the case.

In her judgement, justice Obiora Egwuatu awarded N100,000 against the litigants, saying they have no right to approach the Federal High Court to sue on behalf of the AGF.

The judge held that the AGF should be bold enough to go to court if he felt he was libelled by the newspapers.

The lawsuit was prosecuted by Marshal Abubakar of Femi Falana Chambers.

President Muhammadu Buhari reject electoral bill.

Our direct source disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari rejected the Electoral Amendment Bill because of the removal of indirect primary elections from the document.

A senator revealed that the bill was returned to the Senate and the House of Representatives in a letter addressed to the two principal officers.

However, the source further revealed that President Buhari cited high cost (which hovers around N500 billion) of conducting direct primaries by INEC (Independent National Electoral Commission) as the reason for rejecting the Amended Electoral Bill.

This decision taken by President Buhari has raised a lot of arguments within the country. It’s important to recall that few weeks ago, a report released by “Independent Newspaper” disclosed that some cabals in APC are supporting the national leader of APC (Bola Tinubu) to be the presidential candidate of APC during the 2023 elections.

The cabals further claimed that it’s the turn of ACN (One of the political parties that formed APC) to produce the next presidential candidate of APC and it’s important for people to know that Tinubu was the leader of this ACN before they merged with other groups to form APC.

Nevertheless, here is how Buhari’s rejection of direct primary election may favour the plan of APC cabals to back Tinubu in 2023.

I believe that Buhari’s rejection of direct primary election in the Amended Electoral Act will favour the APC cabals that are supporting Bola Tinubu. This is because these cabals can easily use their political influence to make Tinubu the presidential candidate of APC (All Progressive Congress).

It could have been difficult for these APC cabals to make Bola Tinubu the Presidential candidate of APC if direct primaries were made compulsory for all political parties. People should know that in direct primary election, all members of a political party are allowed to vote for the candidates or aspirants they want and this will make it difficult for some individuals to intimidate others with their political influence.

London law firm Bindmans LLP take up Nnamdi Kanu case.

Bindmans LLP said it has been instructed by the family of Nnamdi Kanu to raise urgent concerns with UK ministers about the separatist’s detention in conditions which amount to torture, Oneworld reports.

The London law firm on Thursday said it has also outlined a series of options for diplomatic and international legal action against Nigeria and key officials in the West African country, requesting assurances that they will be considered urgently and the resulting action plan is then fully explained.

Kanu is a Nigerian-British national and leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). IPOB is agitating for the breakup of Nigeria and sovereign nation of Biafra. Kanu was brought to Nigeria from Kenya in controversial circumstances. Since 27 June 2021, he has been detained by the Department of State Services (DSS). His lawyers have also alleged that he is being denied medical assistance for ongoing health conditions.

Concerns have repeatedly been raised by Bindmans with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), and by Kanu’s lawyers in Nigeria with the authorities and courts there.
According to Bindmans, to date, the UK’s diplomatic efforts have had very little effect as UK officials have only been able to visit Kanu once whilst in detention; his conditions of detention have not changed since that visit and no other progress has been made in assisting him.

Shirin Marker, Solicitor at Bindmans LLP who is representing Kanu’s family said:
The British government has a firm and explicit policy on condemning and seeking to end torture and mistreatment. That policy sets out a range of actions open to the UK authorities when an individual with British nationality is subject to torture abroad. There is no dispute that Mr Kanu is being tortured.

It is essential, therefore, that the FCDO steps up its efforts to assist him and stop his torture imminently.

To do otherwise would be inconsistent with the UK’s obligations under international law and the principles of its policy.

We have made detailed representations to the FCDO on its legal obligations through its lawyers, and expect a prompt response on what action will now be taken.
