UK PM said British combat troops could be sent to Ukraine.

According to oneworld news channel it was gathered that the UK Pime Minister, Boris Johnson, suggested British combat troops could be sent to face down Russian forces threatening Ukraine as tensions rose between Vladimir Putin and the West.

The Prime Minister told MPs that the UK ‘would look to contribute to any new Nato deployment’ as allies readied soldiers and sent warships and fighter aircraft to the troubled region.

An estimated 100,000 Russian troops have massed at the border with Ukraine and intense diplomatic activity has failed to ease tensions.

Last night the United States put 8,500 troops on high alert to deploy to Europe at short notice.

Denmark is sending a frigate to the Baltic Sea and is set to deploy F-16 fighter jets to Lithuania, Spain is sending ships and is considering sending fighter jets to Bulgaria, France has expressed its readiness to send troops to Romania, and the Netherlands is sending two F-35 fighter planes to Bulgaria from April.

Making a statement in the House of Commons, Mr Johnson warned that if the ‘worst happens’ in Ukraine the country’s resistance ‘would be dogged and tenacious, and the bloodshed comparable to the first war in Chechnya or Bosnia.  

He added: ‘The British Army leads the Nato battle group in Estonia and if Russia invades Ukraine, we would look to contribute to any new Nato deployments to protect our allies in Europe.

We cannot bargain away the vision of a Europe whole and free that emerged in those amazing years from 1989 to 1991, healing the division of our continent by the Iron Curtain.

‘We will not reopen that divide by agreeing to overturn the European security order because Russia has placed a gun to Ukraine’s head.’

Earlier Foreign Secretary Liz Truss failed to rule out UK combat troops being sent to help defend Ukraine, telling MPs such a scenario is ‘unlikely.

Conservative MP James Gray (North Wiltshire) asked in the Commons: ‘Are there any circumstances under which she could see British troops being deployed in a combat role defending Ukraine?

Ms Truss replied: ‘As the Defence Secretary has already said, it is unlikely that that would be the circumstance.

But what we are doing is working very hard to make sure that Ukraine has the defensive weapons it needs, that it has the training it needs we’ve trained 20,000 Ukrainian personnel and also that it has the support of the international community; we’re pushing our allies very hard to make sure they are offering similar defensive support.

Labour ‘stands resolute’ in supporting Ukraine’s independence and sovereignty, Sir Keir Starmer has said.

Responding to the Prime Minister’s statement on Ukraine, the Labour leader criticised Vladimir Putin’s acts of aggression in recent years.

He said: ‘His Russia has annexed Crimea, supported separatist conflict in Donbass and now massed over 100,000 troops on Ukraine’s borders.

These are repeated and unjustifiable acts of aggression so Labour stands resolute in our support of Ukraine’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.

‘That was made clear when our shadow foreign secretary and shadow defence secretary visited Kyiv a fortnight ago.’

It came after a senior defence minister warned Russian advance troops are already operating in Ukraine ahead of a possible invasion.

James Heappey said a’ significant’ number of Vladimir Putin‘s soldiers were already operating behind the lines. 

Britain has already supplied Kyiv with thousands of anti-tank weapons and Mr Heappey likened the situation to the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939 that triggered the Second World War.

Writing in the Sun he said: ‘To be British is to go to the aid of others and defend those who cannot defend themselves.

That’s why we went to the aid of Poland in 1939. That’s why we were one of the founding allies of Nato after the Second World War we are being tested again.

Russia has been warned it will be swiftly hit with an ‘unprecedented package of sanctions’ in the event of a fresh incursion in Ukraine after Boris Johnson joined Joe Biden and world leaders to present a united front to combat a feared invasion.

The Kremlin today expressed concern over what it said was an ‘exacerbation of tensions’ by Western nations.

The Prime Minister and the US President met virtually with the leaders of Nato, the EU, Italy, Poland, France and Germany last night as they hoped to avert what Mr Johnson warned would be a bloody and protracted conflict for Moscow.

Downing Street said they stressed diplomatic discussions with Russia remains the first priority, but said the nation would be hit with ‘swift retributive responses’ if a ‘further Russian incursion into Ukraine’ takes place.

Mr Heappey said today: ‘Where we see Russian plans we will expose them, such as their ”false flag” attacks and plots for puppet regimes.

As I write, we are becoming aware of a significant number of individuals that are assessed to be associated with Russian military advance-force operations and currently located in Ukraine.

Under efforts to deter Russian aggression, Mr Biden said the leaders discussed preparations to ‘impose severe economic costs’ against Moscow while seeking to ‘reinforce security on the eastern flank.

The Pentagon put 8,500 US troops on heightened alert, preparing them for a possible deployment to reassure Nato allies amid rising tensions.

Earlier in the day, Mr Johnson warned in an interview that ‘gloomy intelligence suggested Russia was planning a lightning raid on Kyiv, as British staff and their families began leaving the Ukrainian capital.

The Prime Minister warned Russian President Vladimir Putin, who in 2014 led a Russian annexation of Crimea from Ukraine, that a fresh invasion would be a ‘disastrous step.

The intelligence is very clear that there are 60 Russian battle groups on the borders of Ukraine, the plan for a lightning war that could take out Kyiv is one that everybody can see,’ Mr Johnson said.

We need to make it very clear to the Kremlin, to Russia, that that would be a disastrous step.

He warned that the people of Ukraine would resist any invasion and ‘from a Russian perspective, (it) is going to be a painful, violent and bloody business’, he said.

I think it’s very important that people in Russia understand that this could be a new Chechnya.

France’s Emmanuel Macron, Germany’s Olaf Scholz, Poland’s Andrzej Duda and Italy’s Mario Draghi also joined the video call on Monday evening, along with European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen and Nato secretary general Jens Stoltenberg.

The leaders agreed that, should a further Russian incursion into Ukraine happen, allies must enact swift retributive responses including an unprecedented package of sanctions, Downing Street said following the discussions lasting over an hour.

Mr Johnson, according to No 10, emphasised the need to support Ukraine’s defences ‘against the full spectrum of malign Russian activity.

The United States also ordered the families of all American personnel at the US Embassy to leave the country in response the the risk of an invasion.

But the European Union’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said: ‘We are not going to do the same thing’ and Ukraine’s foreign ministry spokesman Oleg Nikolenko said the US decision was ‘a premature step’ and a sign of excessive caution.

Downing Street said British combat troops would not be used to defend Ukraine.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said around 30 British diplomats, including the ambassador, remained in Ukraine. 

The Foreign Office said, Some embassy staff and dependants are being withdrawn from Kyiv in response to the growing threat from Russia.

The British Embassy remains open and will continue to carry out essential work.

Putin may avoid an incursion of Ukraine because it could damage his popularity, the former head of the British Army said this morning.

Lord Dannatt believes ‘the Ukrainians will fight and fight hard’, and that would mean Russian fatalities and casualties.

He told Times Radio: He is very powerful but he does not have universal popularity. There is quite an opposition movement to him.

If Russian television screens get filled with body bags and casualties coming back from a bloody incursion in Ukraine, that will damage his popularity and damage his standing as opposed to boosting his position so he has got a calculation to make.

Meanwhile Gordon Brown has said a show of strength is needed to face down Putin. The former prime minister recalled that, during his dealings with Mr Putin, the Russian leader had said he ‘would not co-operate in any way.

He told ITV’s Good Morning Britain: You have to be able to stand up to him. Remember the assassinations on British soil? He was going to assassinate other people if we hadn’t stood up to him. The only thing that Putin understands is strength.

Perhaps belatedly, the right thing to do is a show of strength from Nato and unity from Nato, and that is something that has got to be fought for and making it clear that we will not accept Russian incursions.

I think it will be financial and economic sanctions that are going to have to be so severe that the Russian autocrats, the Russian oligarchs and Putin himself and his government is affected by them.

Russia deploy Tu-95 missile bomber.

The Russian Federation has taken action to suddenly deploy strategic Tu-95 missile bombers at Engels Air Base, Homepage learned, citing Russian media. Our field source said that a few hours after their deployment, the bombers took off.

According to a source from the Engels base, the bombers performed training tasks and practiced airstrikes in various weather conditions.

  • Russia unveiled new nuc-subs armed with Zircon, Caliber, air defense
  • Russia gets new Su-30 – 16% more thrust, new radar, UAV control
  • You should know: Russian missile divisions are leaving for Crimea
  • Russia: We may send troops to Cuba and Venezuela because of US

According to the information provided to us, at least two Tu-95s, accompanied by fighters, have performed take-off and landing tasks, flights on a specific route, and coordinated tasks with ground air control at the base. After the bombers landed back at Engels Air Force Base, engineering teams performed “standard service” and prepared for multiple flights at regular intervals.

Sources claim that during one of the many “training” flights of the two Tu-95s, more than 20 units of weapons equipment were engaged on the ground, as well as specialized vehicles with teams to maintain the technical condition of the airbase.

Engels Air Force Base is a strategic bomber military airbase in Russia located 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) east of Saratov. Engels is a major bomber operations base, and is Russia’s sole operating location for the Tupolev Tu-160 strategic bomber.

The base has a 3,500-metre (11,500 ft) runway and about 10 large revetments. It is named after the nearby city of Engels, which is in turn named after the Communist philosopher, Friedrich Engels.

Pfizer and BionTech said they’ve started clinical trial for Omicron vaccine.

Pfizer and BioNTech said on Tuesday (Jan 25) they started a clinical trial to test a new version of their vaccine specifically designed to target the COVID-19 Omicron variant, which has eluded some of the protection provided by the original two-dose vaccine regimen.

The companies plan to test the immune response generated by the Omicron-based vaccine both as a three-shot regimen in unvaccinated people and as a booster shot for people who already received two doses of their original vaccine.

They are also testing a fourth dose of the current vaccine against a fourth dose of the Omicron-based vaccine in people who received their third dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine three to six months earlier.

The companies plan to study the safety and tolerability of the shots in the more than 1,400 people who will be enrolled in the trial.

“While current research and real-world data show that boosters continue to provide a high level of protection against severe disease and hospitalisation with Omicron, we recognise the need to be prepared in the event this protection wanes over time and to potentially help address Omicron and new variants in the future,” Pfizer’s head of vaccine research and development, Kathrin Jansen, said in a statement.

Pfizer has said that a two-dose regimen of the original vaccine may not be sufficient to protect against infection from the Omicron variant, and that protection against hospitalisations and deaths may be waning.

Still, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says a third dose of an mRNA vaccine like the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has provided 90 per cent protection against hospitalisation due to COVID-19.

Some countries have already started offering additional booster doses, but a recent study from Israel showed that while a fourth dose of an mRNA vaccine boosted antibodies, the level was not high enough to prevent infection by the Omicron variant.

BioNTech Chief Executive Ugur Sahin told Reuters in November that regulators would not likely require testing of an Omicron-based vaccine on humans because it and Pfizer had already created versions of their established vaccine to target the earlier Alpha and Delta variants, with clinical trials continuing.

However, the debate appears to have shifted as the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said in a statement on Friday that international regulators now preferred clinical studies to be carried out before approval of a new vaccine.

These studies should show that neutralising antibodies in the blood of participants are superior to those elicited by current vaccines. Another desired feature of an upgraded vaccine would be for it to also protect against other variants of concern, the EMA said.

The Omicron variant has replaced the Delta variant as the dominant lineage in many parts of the world and Omicron itself is now splitting into different subforms, one of which, BA2, is causing particular concern.

Thailand’s narcotics board on Tuesday (Jan 25) said it would remove cannabis from its drugs list.

Thailand’s narcotics board on Tuesday (Jan 25) said it would remove cannabis from its drugs list, paving the way for households to grow the plant.

Thailand became the first Southeast Asian country to legalise marijuana in 2018 for medical use and research.

Under the new rule, people can grow cannabis plants at home after notifying their local government, but the cannabis cannot be used for commercial purposes without further licenses, Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul told reporters.

The rule must be published in the official Royal Gazette and 120 days must pass before home cannabis plants will become legal.

Meanwhile, the health ministry will this week present to parliament a separate draft Bill which provides details on the legal use of cannabis, including its production and commercial use, including guidelines on recreational use.

Homegrown cannabis should be used for medical purposes like traditional medicine, food and drug regulator chief, Paisal Dankhum has said previously and that there would be random inspections.

The draft bill punishes growth of cannabis without notifying the government with a fine of up to 20,000 baht (US$605) and prescribes a fine of up to 300,000 baht or three years in jail, or both, for selling it without a license.

The move is the latest step in Thailand’s plan to promote cannabis as a cash crop. About a third of its labour force works in agriculture, according to the World Bank.

Thai drinks and cosmetics companies last year rushed to launch products with hemp and CBD, a compound that does not give users a high, after their use was approved for consumer goods.

LG and GM motors plan to set up battery plant in US.

South Korea’s LG Energy Solution (LGES) plans to spend $2.1 billion with General Motors to build a U.S. electric vehicle (EV) battery plant, parent firm LG Chem said on Tuesday.

LGES and GM are expected to fund the project equally via Ultium Cells, their U.S.-based battery joint venture, for what will be their third joint battery plant in the United States, LG Chem’s regulatory filings showed.

LGES declined to provide detail on the location or production capacity of the new plant.

In December, Reuters reported that GM had proposed building a $2.5 billion battery plant near Lansing, Michigan, with LGES.

LGES commands more than 20per cent of the global electric vehicle battery market and supplies Tesla Inc, Volkswagen AG and Hyundai Motor Co, among others.

It is already building two plants with GM in Ohio and Tennessee to manufacture 70 GWh of batteries, which could power about 1 million EVs by 2024.

LGES has production sites in the United States, China, South Korea, Poland and Indonesia.

Its announcement came ahead of the company’s market debut later this week after launching South Korea’s biggest ever IPO.

The IPO attracted $12.8 trillion worth of bids from institutional investors and $96 billion from retail investors.

The IPO price values LGES at about 70.2 trillion won ($58.57 billion) and will make it South Korea’s third most-valuable company after Samsung Electronics Co and SK Hynix Inc.

($1 = 1,198.5800 won)

China and Russia reject diplomatic boycott by some western countries over Olympic.

President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Russia and China shared common values and that both rejected the diplomatic boycott by some Western countries of the 2022 Winter Olympics that open in Beijing on Feb. 4.

The United States, Canada, Australia and Britain have announced they will not send any state officials to the Games because of China’s human rights record. China has said these countries will have to pay a price.

Speaking to Russian Olympians during a televised virtual meeting, Putin said Russia and its Chinese friends shared an approach to international sport.

Together (with China) we oppose the politicisation of sport and demonstrative boycotts, Putin said. “We support traditional Olympic values: equality and justice first of all.

Putin will fill the void left by foreign dignitaries at the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics and will meet his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping while in the Chinese capital.

Russia and China have moved closer together as both have come under increasing pressure from the West Moscow over its military build-up near its border with Ukraine and Beijing over trade issues and human rights.

At the Beijing Games, which run until Feb. 20, the 212 Russian athletes will be competing as representatives of the Russian Olympic Committee under the acronym ROC, as they did at the Tokyo Summer Olympics last year.

They will be competing without their flag and anthem because of sanctions to punish Moscow for providing doctored laboratory data to international anti-doping authorities that could have helped identify drug cheats.

Russia was also deprived of its flag at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Games in South Korea as punishment for state-sponsored doping at the 2014 Sochi Games.

Many Russians were also banned from the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Russia has recognised some flaws in its implementation of anti-doping rules but denies running a state-sponsored doping programme.

The Ogun State King, Oba Ayinde Odetola, and four of his aides assassinated.

According to Homepage news source, it was learnt that unknown gunmen on Monday assassinated the traditional ruler of Agodo village in Ewekoro local government area of Ogun State, Oba Ayinde Odetola, and four of his aides.

It was gathered that the tragedy was the second of such wicked acts that happened in the community in the last few months.

Homepage leanrt that Oba Ayinde Odetola and his four aides were assassinated, and burnt to ashes as soon as they entered the town around 11 am on Monday 24th January.

A reliable source who spoke with our news team alleged that crisis began in the community as soon as late Ọba Odetola, who was from Ake dynasty was elected as the traditional ruler of the community, but the Owu people insisted that anybody from Ake cannot be their king.

Confirming the incident, one of the late monarch’s sisters, Chief (Mrs) Adenike Akintade lamented the heartless killing, of the traditional ruler and his aides, adding that the same people recently killed a younger brother of the late monarch.

I had just been discharged from hospital early this morning, only to start mourning the brutal assassination of my brother”.

Kabiesi called me on Saturday, urging me to reduce my activities, saying stress could contribute to my illness.

Oba Odetola lost his younger brother to the imbroglio some months ago; the young man was butchered by the so-called hoodlums. Today, Kabiesi is no more, what a world, Akintade lamented

Confirming the incident to Vanguard on the telephone, the Police spokesperson in Ogun State, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi said it was only the traditional ruler that was killed.

He said, after killing the traditional ruler, he was burnt with his car.

He said, the State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole has visited the scene of the incident for an on-the-spot assessment of the situation.

He added that though no arrest has been made, the Commissioner of Police has directed that the matter should be transferred to the homicide section of the State Investigation Department for a thorough investigation.

Oyeyemi added that police operatives are on the trail of those who killed the monarch.

Anuria is a condition where there is a little amount of urine discharge from the body.


Anuria is a condition where there is a little amount of urine discharge from the body. The main cause of anuria includes severe kidney problems, hypovolemia, cardiogenic shock, and sepsis. The term “anuria” indicates absence of urine. In most cases of anuria patients, the urine production would be in the very low level. If untreated, anuria can cause death. Kidneys would not stop urine production but would be able to produce in low quantity.

Causes of Anuria

The causes of Anuria is broadly categorized into Pre-renal Cause, Renal cause and Post renal Cause.

Pre-Renal Causes:

There are problems outside the kidneys that can lower the urine production. These factors are included in the pre-renal causes. The problem occurring in the areas of blood vessels before it reaches the kidneys are also referred to as pre-renal causes. The major pre-renal causes are as follows;

  • Hypovolemia conditions like blood leakage (hemorrhage)
  • Low systemic vascular resistance can occur due to severe sepsis
  • Low systemic vascular resistance can occur due to severe sepsis
  • Other causes include pancreatitis, sudden compression of renal vein or inferior vena cava, a sudden increase in abdominal pressure, sudden increase of blood sugar levels

Renal cause:

  • The problems that occur in the kidneys are grouped as “renal origin”. Presence of glomerulus and renal tubules can drastically reduce urine output causing anuria.
  • Autoimmune diseases, glomerulonephritis, certain kinds of nephrotoxic drugs like amphotericin B, powerful diuretics, ACE inhibitors, kidney diseases acquired by birth (congenital), and hematuria can cause anuria.

Postrenal Cause:

  • Postrenal causes occur with the outflow of urine from the kidneys. Obstruction causes in the kidneys can include a mass, calculi, lower urinary tract issues.
  • Prostatic hypertrophy, stenosis, bilateral ureteral block, problems in the posterior urethral valves and kinks in the catheter can cause anuria.

Risk factors of Anuria

  • People with congenital kidney problems
  • People with recurrent urinary tract infection
  • People with enlargement of prostate glands
  • People who have recently undergone renal surgery are at risk of anuria.

Symptoms of Anuria

Anuria or not urinating is a symptom itself and not a medical condition. Sometimes, a person may also have signs of the condition that is causing the poor urine output.

The symptoms of kidney disease can include:

  • Swelling in the legs, feet, ankles, face
  • Rash or itching of the skin
  • Flank pain in the back or side
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Fatigue

Symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis include:

  • Excessive thirst
  • Dry mouth
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Fruity odor on the breath

Complications of Anuria

  • Cardiovascular abnormalities can affect the fluid and sodium retention processes of the body, presenting as anuria.
  • Gastrointestinal problems leading to severe vomiting or diarrhea can lead to extreme dehydration and imbalances in volume status.
  • Hematological issues such as anemia or platelet dysfunction are also potential complications.
  • Electrolytes of the body that normally get excreted by the kidneys may also cause complications, as substances such as potassium can start to build up, leading to an overabundance.
  • Hyperkalemia, an increased amount of potassium in the system can lead to kidney damage, cardiac arrhythmias, and other ECG abnormalities.

Diagnosis and Test

When diagnosing anuria, your doctor will first ask you questions about the symptoms you may be having. These include questions about urine retention, recent trouble urinating, fatigue, or having blood in your urine.

If your doctor suspects you have anuria, a closer look at kidney function will be initiated. This could include ordering the following tests:

Urinalysis – A urinalysis is a laboratory test. It can help your doctor detect problems with your body that may be indicated by your urine. The doctor will do a microscopic exam, Dipstick test, and Visual exam to examine your urine.

CT scan – CT scan or CAT scan) is a noninvasive diagnostic imaging procedure. CT scans of the kidneys are useful in the examination of one or both of the kidneys to detect conditions such as tumors or other lesions, obstructive conditions, such as kidney stones, congenital anomalies, polycystic kidney disease, accumulation of fluid around the kidneys, and the location of abscesses.

MRI scan – A kidney MRI can be used to guide doctors or surgeons during a procedure, such as a biopsy. An MRI scan may be used if surgery is needed to remove a growth or lump.

Renal scintigraphy – Renal scintigraphy uses small amounts of radioactive materials called radiopharmaceuticals, a special camera, and a computer to evaluate your kidneys’ function and anatomy and determine whether they are working properly. It can provide unique information that is often unattainable using other imaging procedures.


Needle biopsy. After an anesthetic is given, the health care provider inserts the biopsy needle into the kidney to get a sample. Ultrasound or computerized tomography (CT scan) may be used to guide the needle.

Open biopsy. After an anesthetic is given, the health care provider makes an incision in the skin and surgically removes a piece of the kidney.

Treatment and Medications for Anuria

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Fluid resuscitation of 250-500 mL aliquots may be the key in order to increase urine output and stabilize heart rate and blood pressure. The goal is for the patient to have a urine output of at least 0.5 mL/kg/hr. Central venous pressure is maintained at 8-12 mmHg via the central venous catheter. Blood pressure is very accurately measured through an arterial line. If the fluid challenge fails, inotropes come to the rescue.

Nephrotoxic drugs

If the patient is taking drugs that are toxic to the kidneys (as noted above), discontinue these medications. It is also important to release the obstruction, decrease intra-abdominal pressure, and treat the underlying infection.

Diabetes management

People with diabetes should be careful to control their blood sugar levels. It is important to monitor blood sugar as directed, follow the prescribed diet and exercise regimen, and to take all medication, as directed.

Lifestyle changes

Making positive lifestyle changes is also very important for someone with high blood pressure. The doctor should recommend diet and exercise changes and may suggest medication to help keep blood pressure low. Stress relief and getting enough sleep are also necessary.

Removing kidney stones or tumors

Someone with an obstruction in the kidneys, such as from a kidney stone or tumor, will need to have it removed. This may mean surgery, medication chemotherapy, or radiation therapy to shrink or remove the tumor or stone.

Home or Natural Remedies

  • Cucumber: Combine one teaspoon of ground cucumber seeds and one glass of coconut water.
  • Avocado: Boil 500 milligrams of water and add 200 grams of avocado leaves. Leave it overnight. Drink one cup of mixture daily.
  • Cabbage: Use daily in broths, soups, or salads.
  • Java Tea: Boil one cup of water with five grams of java tea leaves twice daily.
  • Chayote: Boil one cup of water with the leaves or seeds of chayote for a drink to be taken twice daily.
  • Carrot: Mix four grams of carrot seed with one glass of warm water for a drink to be taken three times a day.
  • Land Caltrops: Boil one plant and add one teaspoon of honey to every 20 milligrams of the mixture for a daily drink.

Outlook of Anuria

  • The outlook for someone with anuria depends on several factors, including its underlying cause, how quickly it is diagnosed and treated, and the person’s overall health and wellness.
  • As Anuria relates to several other causes, self-diagnosis is a bit difficult. One tends to ignore this condition and tries to solve it through home remedies and self-prescribed medicines or treatments. But one must get in touch with a doctor if any changes get noticed in the urine output. Some cases are:
  • Even after increased water intakes, no improvement is found in the urination
  • In case of diarrhea if vomiting or a feeling of nausea, lightheadedness, fever, dizziness or fat pulse is observed

Foreign herdsmen chased away indigene of Port-Avwon community and take over their homes.

It was gathered that, Port-Avwon, a community in Uwheru Kingdom, Ughelli North Local Government Area, Delta State, who fled the town following invasion recently, by suspected herdsmen, have screamed from their sanctuaries that the invaders had overrun their homeland.

Police in the state had in reaction, debunked the claim that herdsmen invaded the community, but Uwheru Kingdom slammed the state Command for telling lies.

One of the residents who escaped from Port-Avwon village to Uwheru main town, Mrs Yellow Ighochureya, told NDV: “Herdsmen have taken over our village, the people are right there in Port-Avwon presently and they have destroyed our farm crops.

Last year, they killed three of our indigenes in Avwon; this year, they have taken over the place and if we do not run away, they will kill us. That is why we have run here to Uwheru main town, she added.

Another resident of the village who gave her name as Eunice, said: “Fulani people have driven us from our community. Everybody has fled the community, we are calling on the government to help us to remove Fulani people from the community.

The woman leader of the community, Chief (Mrs.) Christiana Etagbedavwe told NDV, For many years, Fulani herdsmen have been troubling this town, killing our people, raping the women and destroying everything that we plant.

These Fulani herdsmen put us in hunger and we have been crying to the government and you know in our community, 99 per cent of the people are farmers and farming is what sustains us, we do not have any company or higher institution.

Every year after planting, Fulani herdsmen will come from their place and destroy our crops and put us into hunger and as farmers, we are trying to train our children and since Fulani herdsmen are destroying our farms, we cannot send them to school again because we cannot pay school fees and eat. 

This year, they have come again, the small things that we have planted since December 2021, they have come again and destroyed them, chasing people from their farms. We want the government to help us because this situation is very bad. Please we are begging the government to come to our aid, she said.

Commissioner for Higher Education, Prof. Patrick Muoboghare, who responded to Police denial of invasion of the community by herdsmen and handover of an apprehended suspect to the Police, said:

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, lied; he deliberately lied.

If he was so sure that there was such a child, he should mention the name of the child and the parents to whom the child was handed over. Who are the parents of that child and who handed over the child?

It is a shame, a very big shame that a Police officer can deny the fact that Fulani have invaded Uwheru community when everyone in the world knows that as we speak, they are there.

Anybody, no matter how highly placed who says there is no invasion of Fulani herdsmen on Uwheru going on right now, is part of the planning of that invasion.

This was how the Police Commissioner in 2020 denied that there were no killings in Uwheru by Fulani herdsmen until we were forced to swallow our pride, we went to the forest and exhumed the bodies from the shallow graves in which they were buried by the scoundrels and the whole world saw them.

Till this moment, the Police have not owned up to the fact that in 2020, there were killings in Uwheru. Now, the same people have sent them to go and cause havoc in Uwheru.

They are from the Niger Republic, from Chad, they are Malians, but they are Fulanis and they have their people here who are protecting them.

I take exception to that statement by the Police Public Relations Officer, it is an insult and he should be redeployed. Even the commissioner should be redeployed if he believes that kind of story, Muoboghare fumed.
