Senator Shehu Sani has urged his fellow government man to fuel his car tank and drive to Kaduna.

The former senator that represented the good people of Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone, Senator Shehu Sani has dragged a certain APC supporter who celebrated, stating that there is no December fuel scarcity this December period.

According to a tweet he made on his verified twitter handle, the former senator stated that a pro governenmt man said that there is no December fuel scarcity/queue this year. Speaking further, Senator Shehu Sani revealed that he urged the man to fuel his car tank and drive to Kaduna.

Lately, there have been series of insecurity issues in different parts of the country, most especially, in the northern parts of the country.

Though we might not be experiencing fuel scarcity this December period across the country, but there are some problems that are more important, compared to the fuel scarcity. It’s only the living that can purchase fuel.

The federal government must rise up and do the needful so as to bring all these insecuriy issues across the country to an end.


(HURIWA) remind President Muhammadu Buhari about his solenm promise over detained IPOB Leader.

The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has reminded President Muhammadu Buhari that his integrity and credibility would be Dangerously imperiled should he not keep to his solemn promise and release the detained leader of the now prescribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from the custody.

HURIWA told President Buhari that it would be disheartening to say that when confronted with unimpeachable appeal for the release of the detained Kanu, he failed in his promise.

The group recalled that President Buhari had provided the clearest optimism to a delegation of a South East group led by First Republic Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi, who visited him in Abuja to intercede for the separatist movement leader.

It recalled that President Buhari said although he would consider the request for the unconditional release of the IPOB leader, it was a rather difficult demand more so when the matter is in court.

In a media statement by the National Coordinator Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National director of media Miss Zainab Yusuf, HURIWA asked President Buhari to deliver a happy Christmas present to the South East by releasing immediately the detained Kanu before Christmas.

HURIWA said releasing the detained leader of IPOB will bring about the beginning of a period of sober reflection and negotiations for lasting peace to reign in the South East of Nigeria and the Country at large.

People watched President Muhammadu Buhari from all over the World discussing with reputable traditional, non partisan and spiritual leaders of Igboland who visited him to plead for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the President accepted to consider the request.

But many weeks after, the Prisoner of conscience detained for canvassing for peaceful self determination has not been released.

In the Spirit of Christmas we urge President Muhammadu Buhari to release the IPOB leader and to integrate the Igbo speaking population into the top positions in the internal security architecture of the Country to restore a sense of belonging .


Nigeria police force abandon 500 Cadet.

News reaching us said, No fewer than 500 cadets who were successful specialist candidates for the Nigeria Police Force recruitment in 2016 have cried out over abandonment by the force, after having undergone all screening and procedures.
SaharaReporters learnt that the cadets, who consist of both Inspectors and Assistant Superintendents of Police, were shortlisted in December 2016 in the national dailies for their documentation and training.

Some of them who spoke with Oneworldnews Reporters said they had reported to the Nigeria Police College in Ikeja, Lagos State and Jos, Plateau State, before the Police Service Commission (PSC) withdrew them, with the assurance that they would hear from the Force later to continue with their training as specialists.
One of them told SaharaReporters that since 2016, they had not heard anything from the police.

We are 500 for both Inspectors and Assistant Superintendent of Police. We were shortlisted in the national dailies on December 26, 2016, for our documentation and training.

After we had reported to the police college in Ikeja and Jos, on December 30, the PSC withdrew us from the college that we would hear from them later in order to continue our training as specialists.

But since then and this is 2021, we have not heard any feedback from them. The PSC and the Nigeria Police Force started inviting 2020 constables candidates back for the conclusion of their recruitment, while we, the cadets specialist candidates of 2016, are yet to be called or even notified on any update, he lamented.
We have undergone all screening protocols, scaled through every procedure and finished all our recruitment exercises since 2016. It was just for us to go for our documentation and training; up till today our names are on the website of PSC and on national dailies, another victim explained.

One of the letters obtained by SaharaReporters and signed by one Suleiman K. Gambo for the Permanent Secretary/Secretary to the PSC, dated March 17, 2021, and titled “Re-Letter Of Requiring For Official Address” confirmed that the specialists should have been invited for interview between December 21 to December 23, 2016.
The letter read, “I wish to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated March 6, 2017, on the above subject matter.

The commission in its press release of Friday, March 10, 2017, stated clearly that the Specialists Cadre scheduled for interview on the list published in Daily Sun of the 26 December 2016 will be invited for interview at the appropriate time.

The specialists would have been invited for interview since 21-23 of December 2016, but along the preparation, it received letters from different professional bodies questioning the qualification of some of the candidates on the published list.

The Bodies said the Specialists referred to on the list are professionals and that most of the professions being regulated ones, the affected candidates must be registered and licensed before they can be employed by any organisation.
“For this reason, the commission has to suspend the Specialists interview until the issues raised by the Professional Bodies are resolved.

However, as soon as these issues are resolved, action that is deemed fit will be taken, the letter had noted.
“We are pleading, to PSC/NPF to please consider us for this upcoming 2022 training, one of the cadets noted.


Breaking: Terrorist have kidnapped scores of travelers along Abuja-Birnin Gwari high way..

According to the information we received from an eyewitness, terrorist have kidnapped scores of travellers along Kaduna Birnin Gwari Highway on Wednesday after attacking their convoy, according to an eyewitness.

details of the tragic incident happened around 11 have remained sketchy but it was gathered that most of the victims were traders on their way to Kano.

Muhammadu Umaru, Community leader told oneworldnews that four of his neighbours were abducted, adding that the vehicles attacked were about
20 which were led by a police escort.

I know about 70 traders who came from Udawa town alone and there are others from neighbouring towns in the convoy that was kidnapped between Udawa and Buruku along the highway.

My neighbours were involved because we call their phones and a bandit picked the call, he stated.

It was gathered that some of the traders that ran into the bush called their relations to inform them of the situation.

The State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Jalige Mohammed, promised to comment on the incident after finding out details.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Emir of Zazzau, Ambassador Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli, had call on all Imams and Pastors within the Kingdom to begin special prayers for the restoration of peace and stability in the area and nation as a whole.

Bamalli, who stated this in a statement signed by the media and publicity officer of the emirate, Malam Abdullahi Aliyu Kwarbai, said this became imperative in view of the incessant killings, miming and kidnapping of innocent people across the emirate.

Kaduna State has been facing bandits attacks for a while and the state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, said his administration’s intention is to kill all bandits.

He said this on Tuesday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on the recent bandit attack that claimed 40 lives in the state.

The governor, accompanied by the State Commissioner for Internal Security, Samuel Aruwan, said the bandits ‘whereabouts was not hidden, but that the military was mindful of the collateral damage it could cause the civilian community.


What is intestinal metaplasia?

What is intestinal metaplasia?

Intestinal metaplasia (IM) is a condition in which epithelial cells (the cells that line the stomach and esophagus) become altered or replaced by other cells, called goblet cells. Goblet cells are large, round, hollow cells that are normally found in the intestines; they should not reside in the stomach or esophagus. The function of goblet cells is to preserve and protect the intestines by producing and secreting a thick mucus layer. Many medical experts consider intestinal metaplasia to be a precancerous condition. Although the exact underlying cause of intestinal metaplasia is unknown, there is a strong theory that the cause of the condition may be linked with a specific type of bacteria—namely, Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori).

Pathogenesis of Intestinal metaplasia

Correa’s cascade is a widely accepted model of the pathogenesis of GC (gastric cancer). The first step in this cascade is the development of chronic mucosal inflammation, mediated through both polymorphonuclear cells and mononuclear cells, which can occur as a consequence of infection with H. pylori or through other environmental insults or through autoimmunity (in the case of autoimmune metaplastic atrophic gastritis). Due to poorly understood mechanisms, chronic mucosal inflammation leads eventually to multifocal glandular atrophy, loss of parietal cell mass, and loss of acidic secretory function. As atrophy progresses, replacement with intestinal-type epithelium characterized most prominently by the presence of mucin-containing goblet cells occurs.

As atrophy and metaplasia to intestinal-type mucosa progresses, generally in an antrum to corpus pattern in H. pylori induced gastritis, stomach acidity and production of pepsinogen I decreases. Dysplasia is the next step in the cascade, characterized by a neoplastic cellular phenotype with large, hyperchromatic cells and disorganized nuclei. While dysplastic cells have a neoplastic phenotype, they continue to respect cellular boundaries and lack penetration across the lamina propria, which is the defining feature of invasive carcinoma.

Causes and Risk Factors

Intestinal metaplasia (IM) is very common across the globe; one in every four people who have had an upper endoscopy (a flexible tube inserted into the nose, then down into the upper digestive system for diagnostic purposes), are found to have intestinal metaplasia. Aside from the presence of an H. pylori infection, specific factors that increase the risk of intestinal metaplasia include:

  • Having a first-degree relative with gastric cancer
  • Lack of vitamin C in the diet
  • Smoking
  • Older age (risk increases with age)

It is a condition that may be precancerous. When left untreated, the abnormal cells in the digestive tract undergo a change referred to as dysplasia. Dysplasia is the presence of abnormal cells in a tissue, which may constitute a stage that is present right before the cell becomes cancerous. The reduction of risk factors may lower the possibility of getting IM, as well as reducing the chance that these cells will progress from dysplasia to the cancer cell stage.

The progression of IM to cancer may be more likely to occur when the following risk factors exist.

  • Genetics: having a family history of stomach cancer or other conditions of the intestinal tract
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Long-term incidence of acid reflux
  • Secondhand smoke (and other toxins in the environment)
  • Smoking: This lifestyle factor may increase the risk of developing many health-related conditions, including increasing the risk of intestinal metaplasia in the esophagus—known as Barrett’s esophagus. Smoking increases the rate of stomach cancer in the upper portion of the stomach, near the esophagus; the rate of stomach cancer is also double in smokers.

Symptoms of intestinal metaplasia

  • People will often have no noticeable symptoms.
  • Some people may develop symptoms, but these can be caused by other gastrointestinal problems, such as acid reflux or GERD. An underlying pylori infection may also cause noticeable symptoms.
  • A doctor will often discover intestinal metaplasia while screening for other digestive disorders, or when taking biopsies to check for cancerous tissues in the digestive tract.

Complications from intestinal metaplasia

  • Intestinal metaplasia is believed to be a precancerous lesion that may lead to gastric cancer.
  • If you have intestinal metaplasia, then your risk of getting gastric cancer is increased six times


In many cases, intestinal metaplasia is diagnosed when a health care provider is investigating the cause of other digestive problems (other than IM).

Because IM is so likely to be asymptomatic (without symptoms), diagnosis is not very feasible without the use of a diagnostic test called an upper endoscopy, in which a long, thin tube with a camera and a viewing platform is inserted into the mouth, through the esophagus, and into the stomach.

A histological examination (microscopic examination of the stomach epithelial cells) is also required to establish a diagnosis.

Treatment of intestinal metaplasia

If a person with intestinal metaplasia tests positive for H. pylori, antibiotics are the treatment of choice to clear up the infection. Antibiotic therapy is usually given for approximately 14 days and may include drugs such as:

  • Amoxicillin
  • Metronidazole
  • Clarithromycin
  • Tetracycline

Treatment may also include medications that lower the acid in the stomach and esophagus to reduce inflammation in tissues that endure the effects of the high acidity levels from excess stomach acid on a long-term basis. Over-the-counter drugs that reduce stomach acid include:

  • Pepto Bismol (bismuth subsalicylate)
  • Prilosec (omeprazole)

How does diet play a role?

  • Researchers are still studying the effect of the diet on intestinal metaplasia.
  • Some dietary changes might help prevent or treat intestinal metaplasia or keep H. pylori in check.
  • This typically includes eating a diet rich in whole, natural foods, such as vegetables, fruits, nuts, and whole grains.
  • These foods contain more nutrients and antioxidants than processed foods, which may be helpful for risk factors of intestinal metaplasia.
  • Some people with intestinal metaplasia should avoid specific foods based on personal risk factors or other complications.
  • People who have gastrointestinal disorders such as GERD may find relief by avoiding fried, greasy, or spicy foods.
  • Cutting out these foods may help reduce the inflammation that could be damaging the stomach.
  • Salty foods may also be a culprit for intestinal metaplasia. Reducing salt intake may lead to an overall better diet, which may support the prevention of intestinal metaplasia.


According to a study in the World Journal of Gastrointestinal Oncology, gastric (stomach) cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related death in the world. In addition, the study noted that intestinal metaplasia increases the risk of stomach cancer six-fold.1 Therefore, screening and prevention measures are vital. Follow-up measures on precancerous lesions to ensure that cancer cells have not begun to grow, and to diagnose any cancerous cell growth early on, are a key preventive component.

There is not enough clinical research to date to definitively prove that lifestyle changes are effective in the treatment of intestinal metaplasia. However, preventative treatment modalities may be prescribed, including a change of diet to lower the acid level in the stomach.4 This diet is thought to help prevent the progression of intestinal metaplasia to gastric (stomach) cancer, because chronic acid reflux and conditions such as GERD (involving an excessive amount of stomach acid) may increase the risk of abnormal cells in the stomach becoming cancerous.

Dietary changes thought to lower the risk factors for intestinal metaplasia—while possibly helping to lower the growth of H. pylori—may include;

  • A bland diet (a non-spicy diet, low in fats and oils)
  • A high-fiber, whole foods diet (rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, without processed, sugary, or fatty foods)
  • A diet with plenty of fresh vegetables, nuts, and fruits
  • A diet with whole grains (instead of foods made from white flour)
  • A low-salt diet (some studies show a low-salt diet may lower the risk of stomach cancer)

The Nigeria police force said they have arrested some women who aid bandits in Kaduna state.

The Nigerian Police Force have arrested some women who were allegedly running errands for bandits and supplying them with other women and information.

The spokesperson of the NPF, Frank Mba, revealed more details regarding the activities of the suspects, while one of the arrested suspects got interviewed during the parade. The event got covered by Channels TV.

The Nigerian Police Force is not relenting its efforts to combat terrorists and their collaborators. Some women recently got arrested in Kaduna State for collaborating with bandits and aiding their criminal activities.

Narrating the details, Frank Mba said, These suspects are from Zaria, Kaduna state. They work with a notorious bandit in a forest in Kaduna state.

The suspects assist bandits by providing surveillance on potential targets and informing the bandits in the bush. They visit the bandits and aid them in purchasing food and medical supplies. The suspects also provide bandits with women for pleasure.

One of the suspects, Mariam Abubakar, has a boyfriend and a brother in the bandits’ camp. Mariam has also introduced girls to the bandits. Sometimes they go as far as demanding ransoms before releasing such girls. We appeal to community leaders and parents to work with law enforcement agencies.

Narrating her role during the parade, Mariam Abubakar said, I am a 39-year-old married woman, and my husband is at home.

However, my boyfriend, Isa, is a bandit who lives in the Galadimawa forest. My brother is also a bandit. I have visited the bandits in the forest multiple times. I assisted the bandits in running errands, and I even attended the naming ceremony of a bandit’s child on the father’s behalf.


A police officer was slapped and almost got lynched by angry mob for causing accident over N100 bribe.

A video have surfaced online, which shows a moment angry mob descended on a police officer for allegedly causing an accident.

He was said to have caused a tricycle (keke) to have accident while trying to extort N100 bribe from the keke driver.

In the video, the mob were trying to lynch him but a few officials were pleading on his behalf.

During the pleading moment, someone from the crowd slapped him, but he was quickly whisked out of the environment for safety.


Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe said no politician should discredit the Igbo’s coz of their presidential ambition.

Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, has replied the former Secretary to the Federal Government, Anyim Pius Anyim and a former governor of Anambra State, Chief Chukwuemeka Ezeife, who were reported to have said that the South East is ‘prepared to kneel or bow before every ethnic group to clinch the 2023 presidency.

The Senator said that the candidates interested in 2023 presidency shouldn’t use their selfish presidential ambition to discredit the igbos.

According to a statement, Abaribe stated that, This is a very big insult to the entire Igbo Nation worldwide. Anyone clamouring to become the next President of Nigeria should not use ndi Igbo to achieve his Political ambitions. He should come out open and stop hiding under the name Igbo to bring insult to us.

Igbos are the most respected tribe in the whole of Africa, because we create something out of nothing and still doing better than those holding the political power for years. So why should we kneel down to beg them?

Nobody gives power except the Almighty God, Him alone can decide the fate of Igbo people in Nigeria and not a mere mortal. Anyone who chooses to kneel before other tribes should do so only with his family, if only his family will agree with him because no sensible Igbo man will tolerate such rubbish.

We are blessed by God in divert ways, remove the Igbos from Nigeria and watch the economy of Nigeria crumble within a short period of time. So when I heard that some people are busy asking us to go down on our knees and beg for Presidential position in this country, it makes no meaning to me at all.

I call on those championing such selfish ambitions to retrace their steps and attach some respect to that word Igbo.

Our forefathers did not beg to achieve what they achieved in Nigeria, is it now our generation that will go down on our knees begging to produce the President of Nigeria. I’m sorry, we will never do that. On this issue, God has the final say not man.
