RIVERS PDP HAS ITSELF – AND NO OTHER – TO BLAME

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 15 Second

The attention of the Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress [APC] has been drawn to yet another Alice-in-Wonderland Syndrome accusation by the Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] that the APC is sponsoring a renegade faction of their collapsing PDP in Rivers State to set up a parallel state secretariat.

Ordinarily, the APC would have dismissed this as one of the frivolous and wild accusations for which the confused PDP in Rivers State has become notorious for especially after being hit by multi-pronged and massive desertion by its rank and file due to factionalisation. But it is now necessary to begin to roll back the death-bed propaganda of a terminally-ill political party before the innocent world is drawn into unnecessary confusion which the PDP in Rivers State has now aiming at.

We would like to recall that the PDP leadership clique led by Felix Obuah, that has sold its soul to the Junior Minister of Education, Bar. Nyesom Wike, sowed the seed of discord in the PDP the day it sold the party’s 2015 governorship ticket to the Minister without considering the various other interests within its ranks. Obuah and his henchmen have sowed the wind and should now be ready to reap the whirlwind that follows without blaming the APC.

Therefore, it is important for the Rivers State Chapter of APC to unequivocally re-state here that the Rivers State PDP is increasingly becoming a victim of its own evil devices. There is no doubt that the PDP house in Rivers State is now a collapsing white sepulchre. That the roof will very soon drop down is only a matter of time. This dramatic development is entirely the making of the PDP leadership clique that thrives in deceit, betrayal and preferring to live in self denial. For once, we expect that the PDP members should recognise that the entire blame for this turn of events belongs to them as they are clearly self-inflicted. Blaming it on APC or any other innocent passer-by smacks of sheer lunacy.

Our only connection to this is that we prayed for this day to come because nature ensures that betrayal begets betrayal, something that is the official stock-in-trade of the PDP in Rivers State. Definitely, we knew a day like this will come for the PDP; indeed, it is here!

Finally, we would like to advise the good people of Rivers State and other Nigerians to ignore the antics of the PDP and continue to support APC and the performing Governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.

Read Time:1 Minute, 1 Second
Igbo delegates have asked the Federal Government to pay N2. 6 trillion as reparation and compensation for the destruction of Igbo lands during the civil war which took place between 1967 to 1970.
 
According to them, millions of their people were killed and many of their states destroyed which brought hardship to Igbo survivors.
 
In a document titled: “Atrocities and Injustices against Ndigbo: Ohaneze demand for Reparation” which was circulated with the amendment to the proposed National Intervention Fund, the delegates  demanded that the Federal Government pay a total sum of N2.6trillion to South East States.

 
“The federal government should pay N400 billion each to the five states of the South East as compensation to those who lost loved ones and properties and those still suffering dislocation today in Nigeria. The same amount should also be paid to the government of Delta State for the benefit of Anioma area of the state”, they asked.
 
The motion was sponsored by former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gen. Ike Nwachukwu, and 14 others. The Igbo stressed that the demand became imperative following the “atrocities and injustices committed against Ndigbo in Nigeria over a long period.

Read Time:38 Second
Security operatives in Nigeria have arrested a man, Lawrence Ugwu, who allegedly specializes in creating panic text messages of impending attack on citizens.

A statement on the website of the Defence Headquarters, DHQ, said Mr. Ugwu, who lives in Abuja, creates text messages of impending bombings by Boko Haram and sends to Nigerians.
The suspect, DHQ said, was tracked by security operatives after dispatching text messages of impending bombings of some hotels in Abuja.
Mr. Ugwu confessed that he employed the gimmick as revenge because the management of one of the hotels failed to offer him employment, DHQ said.
DHQ also said that the suspect confessed that his motive was a ploy to instill fear in the mind of the hotel’s chairman.

2015: PDP govs passes a vote-of-confidence on Jonathan

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 53 Second
State governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party rose from a meeting in the early hours of Tuesday, pledging their commitment to the electoral success of President Goodluck Jonathan when he finally decides to contest the 2015 presidential election. Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, Godswill Akpabio, disclosed this to State House correspondents at the end of a meeting the governors had with the President, Vice-President, Namadi Sambo, and members of the National Working Committee of the party. The meeting, which was held inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja, came immediately after a meeting the President had with members of the PDP Caucus in the House of Representatives ended in the early hours

of Tuesday. The PDP lawmakers had, during the first meeting, passed a vote-of-confidence on Jonathan, asking him to contest the 2015 election. When asked whether the governors also endorsed Jonathan at the meeting, Akpabio said although he would not pre-empt the action of the PDP governors, he could attest to their loyalty to the President. “Members of the PDP Governors’ Forum were present when the National Assembly (House of Representatives) caucus did what they did. I do not want to pre-empt the action of PDP governors, but I can attest to their loyalty and their commitment to the success of Mr. President, come 2015,” the Akwa Ibom State Governor said. When the governor was asked what the response of the President was to his endorsement by the lawmakers, the governor said although Jonathan did not give any answer, he was obviously elated. He attributed the President’s silence to the fact that the Independent National Electoral Commission was yet to release its timetable for the election. “Mr. President didn’t give anybody any answer. He did not say he would contest or he would not contest. Rather, he thanked them for the interest and confidence reposed in him. But I think from his body language, he is very mindful of the law and the need to wait for guidelines from INEC. That was what I noticed,” he added. Akpabio said the President, governors and the party’s NWC did an appraisal of the meeting they had with the lawmakers and resolved that such meetings should be held more regularly.

 
He said the meeting also reviewed the party’s preparation for the 2015 election because they will be conducting primaries in the next few months. He said the party had resolved to deepen internal democracy ahead of the elections. Akpabio said, “We moved into a further meeting with Mr. President and all the PDP governors and members of the NWC, led by the National Chairman of the party, based on the fact that in the next few months we shall be going into major primaries. “We want to deepen internal democracy and we want to strategise on how best we can win the primaries, and by implication, also ensure that we bring out the best candidates. Taking a cue from what had happened in Ekiti, if we are able to carry out proper internal democracy and bring out the most popular candidates, then the main election will be less rancorous. Of course, the party will sail through with a view to getting up two-thirds of the states of the federation, as it was when we started in 1999. “When I came in, there was a period that the PDP had up to 29 governors. In 2011, we still had up to 25 governors, and then of course, some governors, tried to defect to other political parties, which they are at liberty to do, because this is democracy. “But we are gaining more. Now we have, at least, 19 governors with the coming of Ekiti State. We also have three deputy governors, who are still with us. That of Sokoto, Adamawa and also Nasarrwa, that brings our number to about 22.
 
“So, if we shoot to 28, it is not too bad in the 2015 elections. It was an appraisal, and for us to use that opportunity as PDP governors to congratulate the party leader on the very successful election that was held in Ekiti State, which was very free and fair and applauded by the international community and all Nigerians to a point, where even the candidate of the opposition announced that indeed this was a victory well deserved.”
He said with the entrenchment of democracy by the President, as shown in the conduct of Edo, Ondo and Ekiti elections, the same feat would be achieved in Osun election.

We Don’t Rob During the Ramadan and on Fridays’ Caught Robbers Tell Police

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 38 Second
The picture below does not show what these men really look like when they stand on the streets. This is because they have been in police custody and their guises have worn off. But on a good day, any man who doesn't look closely can be easily fooled to believe they are women.

And clearly, many men must have fallen prey to their wiles. These are hardened criminals who have terrified the people of Ibadan. One of them, Lawal Kabir claims he is a devout Muslim who considers Fridays and the Ramadan period as sacred and therefore, he cannot engage in robbery at such times.

He continues by saying that on Fridays he goes to the mosque to pray so that God would forgive all his criminal tendencies Ironically, he was arrested on Friday after observing the Jumat prayers.
According to him and the other suspects, they had unleashed terror in places like Osun, Sawmill and Iyana-Agbala. The eight-man gang confessed this and other crimes they had committed to Crime Alert.
One of them, Ayodele Olaitan, shook his head in regret and said: “It was my friends that pushed me into this. I joined the gang sometime ago and I have participated in at least three robbery operations.
I am not the owner of the mask you see on me. It belongs to one of us called pastor. He is dead now. I regret all my actions. I didn’t realize we could be caught. But, now the game is up, “ he said this in tears.
Lawal Kabir stated that he was driven into the criminal world out of business failure. “I took to robbery when my plumbing work was not booming. Three years after my freedom as an apprentice, I tried all I could to make both ends meet, but things did not work for me. I first stayed in Lagos before I later came to Ibadan where I was introduced to a gang of armed robbers. I have participated in four armed robbery attacks.
I went with them to Osun State, Ibadan, Sawmill and Iyana -Agbala. I was arrested on Friday after I finished praying in the mosque. Somebody we call a pastor, also a member of the gang called me without knowing the police had already arrested him.
I don’t rob on Fridays and during Ramadan. I used those periods to pray to God to forgive me my sins. I know what I was doing was wrong but it was difficult for me to break away from it.”
Biola Alaba, the one with the weave-on, noted that they were eight in number. They were arrested at a drinking joint during a robbery operation at Bodija. He states he never killed any of their victims.
“How can I commit two sins at the same time. I cannot rob and kill at the same time. It is unfair to rob someone of his belongings and kill him. We don’t even rape our victims, “ he said.
Sunday Omooba from Ogbomoso, a member of the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, narrated that he took charge of the armoury for the gang. “I helped them get bullets through one man. I just call the man any time I need bullets for the gang.
I don’t rob with them. In fact, I did not know that they were using the bullets to rob. I also supplied that pump action gun to them. I bought the gun for N70,000 from a friend. If I knew that they would use the weapons for robbery, I would not give them.”
 Mr. Mohammed Indabawa, the State Commissioner of Police related that, “sequel to tip-offs about a criminal hideout at a mechanic village, Iyana Church, Ibadan, a raid was organized and SARS operatives arrested the following suspected armed robbers: Olaitan Ayodele, Abiola Alaba, Oyewole Ogunwole, Adedeji Mustapha, Omooba Oyewole and Adedeji Mustapha. On interrogation, they all confessed to their past and present crimes within and outside Oyo State. They also confessed to have attacked and robbed two police officers.”
All their victims were contacted and they corroborated their confessions.

Update: How Nigerian officials received Nyanya bombing suspect from Sudan

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 46 Second

Aminu Ogwuche reportedly fled to Sudan immediately after the April 14 bomb blast.

The International Police, INTERPOL, on Tuesday handed over the alleged mastermind of a Nyanya bomb blast, Aminu Ogwuche, to Nigerian security.

The Defence Headquarters, DHQ, first said this through its twitter handle @DefenceInfoNG.

“Ogwuche, the Nyanya Bombing Mastermind was received at the Abuja Airport 3:150PM today, Now in Nigerian Security Custody #CounterInsurgency,” it said.

Not long after, officials briefed journalists on the matter, saying the suspect was extradited from Sudan.

The Coordinator, National Information Centre, Mike Omeri, led the spokespersons of the police, Frank Mba; Department of State Services (DSS), Marilyn Ogar; and Defence Headquarters, Chris Olukolade, to receive the suspect.

Mr. Ogwuche was declared wanted by the federal government on May 15 shortly after the DSS paraded some suspects in connection with the bombing which led to the death of at least 75 people.

Also declared wanted was Abubakar Tsiga, said to be chief mastermind of the bombing.

Shortly after Mr. Ogwuche was declared wanted, he was arrested by the International Police Organisation, INTERPOL, in Sudan, where he fled to. The extradition process back to Nigeria was kept a top secret by the security agencies for operational reasons.

However, on Tuesday the police sent a text inviting journalists to cover the unveiling of a “Special Counter-Terrorism Equipment’’ at the airport.

A few minutes after the journalists arrived at the airport, only photographers and television cameramen were invited to take photographs of the special equipment.

At about 3.20 p.m., the spokesperson of the DSS emerged from the arrival hall, beaming with smile and announced the arrival of Mr. Ogwuche, saying “here is the special counter-terrorism equipment.”

Mr. Ogwuche was guarded by plain clothed security operatives into an 18-seater Toyota bus and driven away.

Addressing journalists later, Mr. Omeri said that the suspect would be interrogated and prosecuted.

“We have just successfully been able to secure his (Ogwuche’s) extradition from Sudan and he is back to his home country to answer questions.

“The usual procedure will take place; he will be interrogated appropriately and charged to court when all the processes are concluded.

“The fight against insurgency and the effort to get our girls back is top a priority of the Federal Government,’’ Mr. Omeri said.

The accused, a U.K.-born Nigerian, was a soldier with service number SVC 95/104 but deserted the army in 2006.

He served in the Intelligence Unit of the Nigerian Army at Child Avenue, Arakan Barracks, Lagos, between 2001 and 2006.

He was arrested on November 12, 2011 at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on arrival from the U.K. for suspected involvement in terrorism-related activities.

He was, however, released on bail to his father, Agene Ogwuche, a retired colonel, on October 15, 2012, following intense pressure from human rights activists, who alleged human rights violation, the SSS said.

The elder Ogwuche, a retired colonel in the Nigerian Army in 2012, had pledged to produce his son when needed for questioning.

On May 15, the State Security Service arrested the suspect’s father, Agene Ogwuche, following a breach of bond, which he signed while taking his son’s bail in 2012.

Chibok Girls’ Families Reject Presidential Meeting, Jonathan Blames Opposition

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 11 Second

In a statement issued to the national media, and one SaharaReporters obtained, the president’s office blamed opposition forces for the cancellation.

The parents of the kidnapped Chibok students said ‘no’ to a meeting with Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday, the BBC reports. Their rejection of the Tuesday meet-up in Abuja was unexpected, and has struck a blow to the president’s ongoing charm offensive.

The meeting was a staged event organized by Levick, the Washington-based PR firm, and President Goodluck Jonathan was set to formally meet and be photographed with the families of the students abducted by Boko Haram in mid-April. 17 Chibok residents were expected to meet with the president, including five of the students who had managed to escape. However, the Borno State families, in a surprising last minute move, reportedly called it off.

Goodluck Jonathan In a statement issued to the national media, and one SaharaReporters obtained, the president’s office blamed opposition forces for the cancellation, and put out the following:

“It now appears that our fight to get the girls of Chibok back is not only a fight against a terrorist insurgency, but also against a political opposition.”

“It is with great regret that I announce the cancellation of the meeting with 12 parents of the abducted Chibock children, as well as five of the brave girls who escaped from the terrorist organization Boko Haram. I scheduled this meeting, which was to be open to the media for coverage by Nigerian and international press, to listen to their stories and to privately brief the parents and the girls on our efforts to rescue the abducted girls.”

“My priority is not politics. My priority is the return of these girls.”

“Unfortunately, political forces within the Nigerian chapter of Bring Back Our Girls have decided to take this opportunity to play politics with the situation and the grief of the parents and the girls. They should be ashamed of their actions.”

“Those who would manipulate the victims of terrorism for their own benefit, are engaging in a similar kind of evil: psychological terrorism.”

“I want to be clear, this government stands with complete solidarity with the girls and their parents. We are doing everything in our power to bring back our girls. Despite the shameful and disgusting games being played by the Nigerian chapter of Bring Back Our Girls, as a father of girls, I stand ready to meet with the parents of our abducted children and the truly brave girls that have escaped this nightmare through the grace of God.”

The “summit” was supposed to be a public relations opportunity for President Jonathan. That summit with 12 parents of the abducted Chibok students in the Nigerian capital would have been invaluable to him politically.

In May, President Jonathan had backed out of a scheduled meeting with the parents of the kidnapped Chibok students while visiting Borno State.

Military forces traveling with the president cited security concerns that prevented Jonathan from visiting Chibok back then. Some Chibok residents speaking with a SaharaReporters correspondent afterwards said they felt ‘snubbed’ by the president’s bailout on the visit. 

Phillip Elwood, the Vice President of the Levick firm, told a SaharaReporters correspondent hours after the cancelled event that the reasoning for the Jonathan bailout was that “they are facing a crisis on the ground.” Elwood offered no further information, and told the correspondent to call back later for more information.

SaharaReporters did call back, but Elwood’s phone immediately forwarded to voice mail. At press time, there was no mention of the cancelled event on the company’s web site.

NIGERIA: Abia’s Agric Commissioner Dies of Gun Attack

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 14 Second

After battling for his life for six days, Abia State Ccommissioner for Agriculture, Dr Kenneth Nwosu, has died from the guns shot wounds he sustained following an attack by suspected assassins.

He was attacked by hoodlums on July 9, along Umuajata/Amakama Road, while driving from Umuahia, the state capital, to his home at Olokoro in Umuahia South Local Government Area.

Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Eze Chikamnayo, announced Nwosu’s death at a press conference yesterday, saying that the agric commissioner breathed his last on Monday night at the state Specialist Hospital Umuahia, where he had been receiving medical attention.

He said the death of Nwosu was a sad moment for the government and the entire people of the state because the late commissioner was “a colossus (and) the best hand in agriculture.”

He noted that the state government made spirited efforts to save his life after he was rushed to the hospital and a team of doctors were on hand to provide him with adequate medical attention.

The information commissioner said arrangements had been made to fly Nwosu abroad for further medical attention but he could not be moved out immediately as doctors advised that the patient needed to be in stable condition before he could be flown abroad.

He said the state governor, Chief Theodore Orji, had ordered security agents to do everything in their power to fish out those behind his killing, vowing that the hoodlums must be made to face the full wrath of the law.

Nwosu was said to have been left with shattered intestines after the gun attack with the Chief Medical Director of the state Specialist Hospital Umuahia, Prof Augustus Mbanaso, saying the victim was brought to the hospital in critical condition and had to be stabilised before surgery was carried out.

Police public relations officer (PPRO), Geoffrey Ogbonna, had told journalists after the incident that the police could not immediately confirm if Nwosu was a victim of assassination but added that  “from the look of things it was obvious they (gun men) had a hidden agenda  as they did not  remove anything from him or collect his car.”

He said the police had launched full investigation into the incident and called for useful information from the members of the public to assist the police in tracking down the gun men so they could be made to bear the consequences of their heinous crime.

The late commissioner was brought into Governor Orji’s cabinet in September 2013 after his retirement from the National Root Crop Research Institute (NRCRI) Umudike, where he served two terms as the executive director.

Read Time:2 Minute, 19 Second

In its continued effort to end illegal bunkering activities in the waterways of the Niger Delta, the operatives of the Joint Task Force ‘Operation Pulo Shield’ have arrested an ocean going barge used by vandals in the region.
The barge containing an unascertained quantity of crude oil, was intercepted and arrested at Mangbiye Creek, Sangana community of Southern Ijaw Local Government Area, Bayelsa State.

The JTF, in a statement by Lt. Col. Mustapha  Anka, Coordinator, Joint Media Coordinating Centre (JMCC), noted that the troops deployed at Kalaibiama also discovered a wooden boat and a metal barge filled with stolen crude oil.  No arrest was made as the suspects absconded on sighting the troops.

Similarly, the troops deployed at Igbematoro, Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, while on patrol discovered and destroyed 23 illegal oil distillery camps, 18 illegal oil dumps, and 34 drums filled with stolen crude.
