Court awards #20b damages against Lawless DSS for illegal raid of Igboho house

Court awards #20b damages against Lawless DSS for illegal raid of Igboho house


An Oyo State High Court on Friday granted a relief sought by Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho and ordered the Nigerian government to pay him N20 billion.

The Court Orders the Major General Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government To Pay Sunday Igboho N20billion for the illegal raid of his house in Ibadan, Oyo State Capital.

In its ruling, the court also dismissed an application filed by the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, challenging its jurisdiction to hear allegations against Nigerian government agencies.

The court was expected to deliver judgement or ruling on the N500 billion fundamental human rights case instituted by the Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho against the Nigerian Government and Department of State Services (DSS).

Adeyemo Sunday Igboho had through his lawyer, Yomi Alliyu, filed a suit challenging the invasion of his house in Ibadan on July 1 by operatives of the DSS, also known as the State Security Service (SSS) or secret police.

Igboho is, among others, seeking an order of the court to declare the invasion of his residence by DSS operatives as illegal and an infringement on his fundamental human rights.

The three respondents are Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), as the first respondent, SSS as the second respondent and Director of SSS in Oyo State as the third respondent.

Counsel for the AGF, Abubakar Abdullahi had filed an application challeging the ability of a state High Court to hear the activities of Nigerian government agencies.

But citing several judgements by the Supreme and Appeal courts in respect of the ability of the state high court to hear such cases, Justice Ladiran Akintola said the invasion of the house of the applicant violated his fundamental human rights as stipulated in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as ammended.

“Unfortunately, this court is not a Father Christmas and cannot award the sum of N500 billion as requested by the applicant but the court retrained the respondent from arresting or harassing the applicant. He has right to his free movement as contain in section 35.1 (a)(b) of the 1999 constitution as amended.”


Meanwhile, Buhari led Nepotic Government is known for lack of respect for the rules of law, fundamental human rights and fragrance disobedience to court orders.

NIGERIA IS ABOUT TO SNAP; THE UN MUST ACT NOW TO AVERT CATASTROPHE - NINAS

NIGERIA IS ABOUT TO SNAP; THE UN MUST ACT NOW TO AVERT CATASTROPHE - NINAS

(Being a Letter Addressed to United Nations Security Council, the Trusteeship Council and the General Assembly, September 14, 2021 by the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination, (NINAS), at the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.


PROTOCOLS.


1.    We, the Indigenous Peoples of Nigeria gather today at the Headquarters of the United Nations in New York to alert the UN, and the rest of the Global Community that the Union of Nigeria has failed irredeemably; and is now at the verge of a Violent Disintegration with Catastrophic Consequences for Global Peace, and Security as our population of over 200 million would become an Instant Global Refugee Nightmare.

 

2.    Amidst the extraordinary difficulties inflicted by the imposition and enforcement of Sharia by a section of Nigeria in a supposedly Secular Union, the immediate reason for this looming catastrophe is the Cocktail of Mass Killing, Kidnapping and General Banditry being orchestrated against the Indigenous Peoples of Nigeria by an invading Fulani Militia masquerading as Herdsmen in an undisguised Ethnic Cleansing Campaign that progressively demonstrate the Complicity of the Federal Government of Nigeria headed by Major-General Muhammadu Buhari, a Fulani man, who as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria is also the Life Grand Patron of the notorious Myetti-Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria; that proudly takes responsibility for the Murderous Exploits of the Fulani Herdsmen  Militia designated the Fourth Most Deadly Terror Group.

 

3.    Compounding their impunity, the same Myetti-Allah Cattle Breeders Association at a recent Press Conference organised to mock the Planned NINAS Million-Man Freedom March to the UN, boasted to be in control of the UN through their daughter, Amina Mohammed, the Deputy Secretary-General at the UN. An indication that (Amina Mohammed) nominated to that Exalted UN Position by the Fulani President of Nigeria Major-General Muhammadu Buhari, is in some way a part of the Grand Protection Design for the Fulani Herdsmen in their Bloody, Onslaught against the Indigenous Peoples of Nigeria.

 

4.    It will be recalled that following widespread extrajudicial killings in Nigeria, the UN in August of 2019, dispatched a Special Rapporteur Mission to Nigeria led by Agnes Callamard. The Damning Verdict of that Rapporteur Mission was that the widespread extrajudicial killings were flowing from the Unitary Constitutional Arrangements of Nigeria, which operates as a PRESSURE-COOKER FOR INJUSTICE and that Nigeria under that Constitution is a Danger to Global Peace and Security. The Report warned that unless something is done urgently, Nigeria would Snap, plunging its 200 million Population into turmoil that will trigger a Large-Scale Refugee Crisis of unprecedented magnitude at a time the Global Terror Networks, ISIS, ISWAP and AL-Qaeda are already converging in Nigeria.

 

5.    It will be recalled that in furtherance of the Repudiation and Rejection of the Unitary Constitution of Nigeria (1999), and the Toxic Union it foists, the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (being the South and Middle-Belt of Nigeria) on December 16, 2020 Declared a Constitutional Force Majeure, raising a Union Dispute with 5-Point Demand for the termination of the operation of the aforementioned imposed Constitution; for the immediate commencement of remediation of the Long-Standing Grave Constitutional Grievances of Nigeria’s Constituent Components, failing which the Peoples of the Alliance Territory would Reconsider their Allegiance to that Constitution. The Key Highlights of the five-point demand include the suspension of the further elections (Particularly the 2023 Elections), under the repudiated 1999 constitution as well as the initiation of a time-bound transitioning arrangement to mid-wife the emergence of fresh constitutional protocols founded on the sovereignty and self-determination rights of the constituent components of Nigeria. An Online Petition conveying the Demands of that Constitutional Force Majeure Proclamation, is currently before the UN Security Council.

 

6.    That Nigeria has failed as a State is no longer a Subject for Debate, having emerged the Global Poverty Capital, and Playing Host to Two of the World’s Top Four Most Deadly Terrorists Organisation, with Three-quarters of the Constituent Components (South and Middle-Belt) Seeking Urgent Extrication by Way of Referendums from what has become a Union of Death. Looking back at the recent turn of events in Afghanistan, this Freedom March to the United Nations Headquarters in New York, is to alert the Global Community of the rapidly degenerating situation of Nigeria, and to invite United Nations, particularly the Security Council, and Trusteeship Council, to initiate Urgent Steps to Arrest Nigeria’s Descent into Chaos, as besieged communities drift dangerously to self-help.

POLICE EXTRA-JUDICIAL KILLINGS IN LAGOS: TIB MOVEMENT LAGOS CONDEMNS THE MURDER OF MONSURAT OJUADE, DEMANDS JUSTICE AND END TO KILLINGS

POLICE EXTRA-JUDICIAL KILLINGS IN LAGOS: TIB MOVEMENT LAGOS CONDEMNS THE MURDER OF MONSURAT OJUADE, DEMANDS JUSTICE AND END TO KILLINGS

 *TAKE IT BACK MOVEMENT LAGOS STATE*


14TH SEPTEMBER, 2021


FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE 


*POLICE EXTRA-JUDICIAL KILLINGS IN LAGOS: TIB MOVEMENT LAGOS CONDEMNS THE MURDER OF MONSURAT OJUADE, DEMANDS JUSTICE AND END TO KILLINGS*


We in the Take It Back Movement Lagos condemns in strict terms the extra-judicial killing of an 18-year-old admission seeker, Monsurat Ojuade, who was fatally shot dead in cold blood on September 11, 2021 by a trigger-happy policeman in Lagos State. 


We equally condemn the dead on arrival efforts of the Lagos police in an attempt to cover up the truth by releasing a misleading police report that was unrelated to the brutal event which led to the death of Monsurat Ojuade on September 11, 2021.


Mosurat Ojuade, who was awaiting university admission having scored 236 marks in JAMB was killed by a trigger-happy policeman identified as one Samuel Phillips during their usual illegal and unlawful raid in Surulere neighborhood. 









Eye witness confirmed that Monsurat Ojuade and her sister ran into their compound for safety, as the raider was ransacking the neighborhood. But as their mother tried to hurriedly closed the gate, the police officer shot into their gate at very close range.


Monsurat Ojuade was first taken to a public hospital for treatment but she was rejected due to the ongoing strike. As she continue bleeding, her family took her to another hospital but unfortunately she died at the third hospital after bleeding profusely from the bullet wound.


We use this opportunity to remind the public of how the Lagos police brutally murdered Jumoke at the Yoruba Nation rally on the 3rd July, 2021. The policeman who shot Jumoke is yet to be identified, dismissed or prosecuted, instead the Lagos police charged one of the Yoruba Nation agitators who is an Ogboni chief with the death of Jumoke just to cover up the unfortunate incident. There has been no #JusticeForJumoke after 73 days of her brutal murder.


While we acknowledge the arrest and identification of the trigger-happy policeman as claimed by the Lagos CP, we call for his quick dismissal from service and also his quick prosecution according to the law.


We also call for permanent end to police brutality, human rights violations, extra-judicial killings, frequent victimisation and harassment of Lagosian by the police, as well as the unlawful policing by some members of the Nigerian Police Force.


We put the public and Lagosians on alert over the rising cases of police brutality and killings that never stopped even after #EndSARS. 


We send our humble tribute and condolences to the family of Monsurat Ojuade and we pray that God grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. 


May her soul and the souls of faithful departed rest in peace.


We want #JusticeForEji

We want #JusticeForJumoke

NIGERIA: VAT AS A CATALYST FOR RESTRUCTURING

NIGERIA: VAT AS A CATALYST FOR RESTRUCTURING

A few weeks before he was removed from office, the then Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, warned leaders in the North that if they do not change their policies and ways so that the region can begin to harness its huge resources, the day will come when their southern counterparts will drive demands for change that will create more problems for it. Hear him -


“If the north does not change, the north will destroy itself. If we don’t listen, there would be a day when there would be a constitutional amendment that addresses these issues of quota system and federal character. The  rest of the country cannot be investing, educating its children, producing graduates and then they watch us, they can’t get jobs because they come from the wrong state, when we have not invested in the future of our own children.”


Well, that day is here. The frustrated words that have often been mouthed on the streets of the South are now finding voice in the law making chambers and courts of law. Make no mistake, the decision of the Rivers State High Court over the issue of VAT collections and administration enjoys wide support across the South. Many know that it will create problems for their own States too but they are all for it. Why? Anything to cut the umbilical cord of what is considered an overbearing and inequitable federal system that robs Peter to pay Paul. 


That our States have become cost centers rather than development centers invites no argument anymore. Most exist for patronage and nothing more. 33 of 36 make little impact on VAT collection, for example, yet get paid for literally doing nothing. The same is true for the much touted GDP growth - all driven by economic activities in a small pocket of  States. Such a situation will inevitably breed disaffection that will drive division and disunity. 


How do we make more States viable? Drive competition, drive innovation, drive cooperation, and drive self-reliance. When a Yobe State knows that there’s no monthly federal bailout fund (that’s basically what the monthly federal allocation is) to rely on, it will begin to apply policies that will grow its own local economy and hunan resources. States should compete for talents (Lagos literally vacuums up most of them at the moment) through better living conditions. Investing in education and learning (especially in the North) will yield beneficial results and the end of the inequitable “educationally disadvantaged States” nonsense. A thinking Governor should have no problem identifying comparative advantages and build on them. There’s so much that is possible if we can all let go this feeding bottle system that inhibits growth and development.


It may be that the change that Nigeria needs, the change that will alter the dynamics of federal and state relationship so that the States become more self-reliant and resourceful, will begin to happen through the courts rather than through the legislature. The VAT ruling may see to that.


We wait and see!

Major General Muhammadu Buhari: The end of an age long Uthman Dan Fodio era

Major General Muhammadu Buhari: The end of an age long Uthman Dan Fodio era


The Tyrant Major General, Muhammadu Buhari is definitely an end to the age long Fulani agenda in Nigeria. The evils that the regime foisted on the country in the name of taking over the geographical space called Nigeria for the Fulanis knows no bounds but alas they have failed.


From Buhari's RUGA to the  finding of cattle routes and many other coordinated genocidal attacks and ethnic cleansing, rapes and kidnapping. Presidential open threats and support for terrorism. State attacks and killing of those with opposing views and voices. The regime has failed to conquer the country for Fulanis. Yet they are still wining as they are in charge of nation's affairs holding and controlling major sectors, parastatals, ministries and departments of government including the military.


No body, no oppressor willingly reliquist power, but it's the oppressed that must act and take it just like the ways Rivers and Lagos have just done in the areas of VAt/tax and the entire southern States have done in the areas of ban on open cattle grazing.

With such steps, Nigeria has entered into a new era of begging instead of threats as usual under this nepotic leadership. Reason We must deliberately remain vigilant.


*1. Gombe government begs Southern States to reconsider stance on VAT and be their Brothers keeper.*


*2. FIRS begs NASS to pass a bill setting up a Federal Revenue Court and putting VAT under exclusive legislative lists.*


*3. NASS begs INEC to reject electronic transmission of results.*


*4. Fulani terrorists surrendering in their thousands with their sponsors begging for amnesty for the criminals.*


*5. Miyetti Allah begs NASS to stop the Southern Governors anti open grazing law.*


*6. Buhari government begs the Plateau State people not to resort to self defenses in their fight against invading terrorists.*


*7. Miyetti Allah begs Lagos State government to delay the prohibition of open Cattle Grazing Bill because Cows may cost N2million each if the Bill is passed.*


*What is most shocking in all these begging is that the all powerful Miyetti Allah terrorist group too is finally begging. This is the group that openly announced that, "FULANI OWN ALL LANDS IN NIGERIA." And openly threatened and attacked a sitting Governor in Nigeria without repercussions. And the FG too threatened the people on behalf of the terrorist organization that it is; "either your land or your lives."*

*Times are changing indeed.*


*Maybe it is just dawning upon them that their principal has just about 20months left in his tenure and he has been unable to secure for them the promised free land all over the country. Rather than helping them to modernize their business into a multi-billion dollar businesses and exporting Industrial beef to the world, he has impoverished them the more and helped the anti open grazing laws to become the law of the land. The 8years of Buhari has become their albatross.*


*And a sitting Fulani Governor announced to the world that all foreign Fulanis are welcome to Nigeria without legal documentation. Their allegiance was to their ethnic group rather than to the country they have sworn to protect.*


*Meanwhile another Fulani General announced openly that repentant terrorists can become the president of Nigeria tomorrow.*


*To suddenly see such arrogant people suddenly resorting to begging is very suspicious and we must not let down our guards.*


*The impunity era is gradually coming to an end. The downtrodden indigenous people of Nigeria must remain steadfast, unified, strategic and vigilant to escort those who visited us with arranged insecurities, stealing, killing, destruction and kidnapping out of power and influence. And ensure that they are handed over to the War Crimes Commission.*


Also, Such less than minority normadic tribe with such nepotic tendencies should never again be allowed in a democratic settings to gain access to power in Nigeria and must be flushed out now.

Thanks.

*3. NASS begs INEC to reject electronic transmission of results.*


*4. Fulani terrorists surrendering in their thousands with their sponsors begging for amnesty for the criminals.*


*5. Miyetti Allah begs NASS to stop the Southern Governors anti open grazing law.*


*6. Buhari government begs the Plateau State people not to resort to self defenses in their fight against invading terrorists.*


*7. Miyetti Allah begs Lagos State government to delay the prohibition of open Cattle Grazing Bill because Cows may cost N2million each if the Bill is passed.*


*What is most shocking in all these begging is that the all powerful Miyetti Allah terrorist group too is finally begging. This is the group that openly announced that, "FULANI OWN ALL LANDS IN NIGERIA." And openly threatened and attacked a sitting Governor in Nigeria without repercussions. And the FG too threatened the people on behalf of the terrorist organization that it is; "either your land or your lives."*

*Times are changing indeed.*


*Maybe it is just dawning upon them that their principal has just about 20months left in his tenure and he has been unable to secure for them the promised free land all over the country. Rather than helping them to modernize their business into a multi-billion dollar businesses and exporting Industrial beef to the world, he has impoverished them the more and helped the anti open grazing laws to become the law of the land. The 8years of Buhari has become their albatross.*


*And a sitting Fulani Governor announced to the world that all foreign Fulanis are welcome to Nigeria without legal documentation. Their allegiance was to their ethnic group rather than to the country they have sworn to protect.*


*Meanwhile another Fulani General announced openly that repentant terrorists can become the president of Nigeria tomorrow.*


*To suddenly see such arrogant people suddenly resorting to begging is very suspicious and we must not let down our guards.*


*The impunity era is gradually coming to an end. The downtrodden indigenous people of Nigeria must remain steadfast, unified, strategic and vigilant to escort those who visited us with arranged insecurities, stealing, killing, destruction and kidnapping out of power and influence. And ensure that they are handed over to the War Crimes Commission.*


Also, Such less than minority normadic tribe with such nepotic tendencies should never again be allowed in a democratic settings to gain access to power in Nigeria and must be flushed out now.

Thanks.

Lekki Now Hotbed of Cyber Crime: EFCC say 402 suspects arrested in three months

Lekki Now Hotbed of Cyber Crime: EFCC say 402 suspects arrested in three months






Blatant failure on the parts of government at all levels - Comrade Dele Abiola


Lekki, the fast-developing upper middle class area of Lagos Metropolis, is emerging as the new hub of internet-related fraud. Data from the investigation activities of the Lagos Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for the second quarter of 2021, indicates that Lekki District is the preferred location for all manner of cyber fraud syndicates.

Between April and June, 2021, the Advance Fee Fraud and Cyber Crime Sections of the Command recorded a total of 402 internet-related fraud arrests. While the Advance Fee Fraud Section was responsible for 243 arrests, the Cyber Crime Section executed 18 sting operations which resulted in 159 arrests, from which 13 convictions have so far been recorded.

Of the 159 suspects arrested by the Cyber Crime Section, 70 are from Lekki, comprising communities such as Ajah, Badore, Victoria Garden City, Sangotedo and Oniru.

Ajah accounted for 24 suspects, while Oniru and Sangotedo had 14 and 13 suspects respectively. Badore had 8 suspects. Neighbouring Ikoyi and Eko Atlantic had 2 and one suspect each. Ikorodu and Alagbado on the Lagos Mainland make up the remainder.

The suspects are mostly millennials, with 82 of them aged between 25-34 years, which speaks to the fact that most of the individuals arrested are either still in school, recent graduates or university drop outs.

Analysis of the data from the Cyber Crime Section further shows that the dominant form of internet crime is Dating Scam/Online Dating Scam/Romance Scam. Sixty Four percent (64%) of individuals arrested are involved in romance scam, followed closely by “Middle Man Scam” and “Picking” which account for 8% and 7% respectively of those arrested.

The 64% involved in the dating scam benefitted to the tune of N8, 310,000; $349,290 USD; £ 900; €10 and Cryptocurrency 0.17513.

Other typologies of fraud identified include forgery, possession of fraudulent documents, spamming, credit card fraud, impersonation, rental scam, loan fraud, Business Email Compromise, Hacking, stealing, cheque scam, phishing, and money laundering.

The data also reveals gift cards, at 39%, as the prevalent method employed by the suspects to access their illicit funds. It is followed by bank transfers at 27% and Cryptocurrency at 21%.

A total of $12, 512.49USD was recovered from the e-wallet accounts of four suspects within the period.


Reacting to the EFCC revelations above, Comrade Dele Abiola said if the data and statistics shown are accurate, it just revealed a blatant failure on the part of the governments at all levels both past and present to invest in country's youth.


"In my opinion and views, there are more Fraudsters in every parts of the country more than ever as nothing is working under this APC anti-democratic and ant-masses regime."


"If you asked them to go to farm, the herdsmen are there sending farmers away from farms, if they succeed in killing or kidnapping them. The insecurity in the country is beyond any estimation and calculations. We just know that this is not the country of our dreams."


"While no sensible person will be in support of frauds and scams or the ills perpetuated by Fraudsters but something must be drastically done to curtail this prevalent issues via massive investments on the youths population."

"More also the EFCC needs to start going after politicians, they have looted the country's common wealth that has brought us to where we are as a country."

"The anti-graft body itself also needs to be accountable to the public, trillions of naira and foreign currencies as well as properties were said to have been recovered during Magu, where are they? They have never been seen to be reflected on the life of an average Nigerians. This only confirmed the Buhari led tyrant Regime as worst and most corrupt in recent time." He concluded.

I AM A UNIVERSITY GRADUATE: THE PROBLEM WITH GRADUATES OF YORUBA ORIGIN

I AM A UNIVERSITY GRADUATE: THE PROBLEM WITH GRADUATES OF YORUBA ORIGIN

By Abdul-Ganiyy Raji


Yoruba people of South Western Nigeria are known to be lovers of education. They can borrow or sell their valuables just to get a tertiary education. One particular South Western State is reputed to have the most professors in the country. I guess you know the state I am talking about.



It is an incontrovertible fact that the Yorubas are the most educated people in Nigeria. They love education so much that they also pursue it beyond the shores of the country. There is hardly any continent of the world that does not have a student of Yoruba origin. However, a study of the economic realities of many Nigerians show that other ethnic groups like Ibo, Hausa and Fulani are better off financially than many graduates of Yoruba origin. Let us begin by taking a look at most of the big and small shops in Lagos State, they are owned by Ibos. Most highbrow estates in Lagos State are also fast becoming another South East within a State because of the high concentration of people of South Eastern origin who are resident in them. This is kudos to Ibos. At least, they are working hard and smart. It is wrong to think that all Ibos who are well-off are fraudsters or money ritualists. Many of them just have great legit business ideas that many Yoruba graduates do not have. They never get carried away by their academic qualifications.



One wrong assumption that many South Westerners have is thinking that the Hausas who do menial jobs and hawk yams and pepper in Lagos State are also poor people back in their various states. What we fail to realise is that most of these Hausas are making fortunes in Lagos and other big cities. Many of them are millionaires in their states. Some of them even have farmlands that are big enough to feed large communities.



Why are Yorubas not the richest people in Nigeria notwithstanding their educational edge over other tribes? The simple answer is Yorubas are egomaniacal. They are arrogant. Their arrogance makes them avoid jobs which yield high profits but which will require them to get their clothes and feet stained with mud, oil or sand. Yorubas like white-collar jobs. They all want to work in cosy offices. If they fail to get jobs in big companies, they keep waiting till eternity. When a graduate of Ibo origin fails to get his desired white-collar job, he considers selling Okirika, raw foodstuffs or any other thing that he can lay his hands on. This is not the case with graduates in the South West. To the Yorubas, it is an embarrassment that a university graduate should be seen selling Okirika, raw foodstuffs or cooked food, or doing a blue-collar job. This is one of the reasons why many graduates are poor in the South West. 



Friends and family members are also blameworthy for the poor economic status of many  graduates in the South West. They will mock you behind and in front of you for selling raw foodstuffs, cooked food or Okirika, or for doing blue-collar jobs if you are a graduate. *"How can a graduate like you be selling yams?* This is what they will say even without making any attempt to help you get an alternative job. They will taunt you so much that if you are not focused, you may end up becoming frustrated and hopeless.



A Hausa man will put out a tray with 20 oranges and within two months, the oranges will become 200. Before long, he will be buying multiple sacks of oranges. The same Hausa man who came to Lagos with nothing will return to his state annually with lots of money. Where is the Yoruba man who is a university graduate? He is still roaming the streets looking for a white-collar job that does not exist. 



The problem with graduates in the South West is that they have a morbid sense of self-importance and and entitlement. *"I am a graduate and therefore, I must get a prestigious white-collar job"* *"I am a graduate and therefore, I must not be seen doing a job that is meant for non-graduates."* Yorubas who reason in these manners are living in a utopian world. Today,there are many blue-collar jobs and self-run busineses that pay more than white-collar jobs. We can see many blue-collar workers and self-employed people building their houses and sending their children to schools of their choice while many white-collar workers are even struggling to make ends meet.



Do not misconstrue me. I do not mean to say that white-collar jobs are bad. What I am aiming at is that if you cannot get a white-collar job, never sit down wallowing in poverty and self-pity. Think about other things you can do that will put food on the table for you and your family, even if such other things will not involve knotting a tie or wearing a suit. Do not allow mockery from your friends, family members or former classmates, or your supposedly intimidating credentials to prevent you from doing legit blue-collar jobs that can bring you money. Let people ridicule you for doing a blue-collar job or running your small business. When you finally make it, they will come back to congratulate you.


Yoruba people, wake up before it is too late.

COAS IN IBADAN: NO ETHNIC PROFILING IN OYO STATE -GOVERNOR MAKINDE

COAS IN IBADAN: NO ETHNIC PROFILING IN OYO STATE -GOVERNOR MAKINDE



The Executive Governor of Oyo State, Engineer Oluseyi Makinde has assured the general public that there is no ethnic profiling in the state. He pointed out that the government is rather poised to go after criminals no matter their position in the society.

Governor Makinde gave the assurance when the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, the Oyo State Capital.


He solicited for continuous synergy between the government and security agencies as well as members of the society at large to fish out unscrupulous persons for peace, harmony and socio-economic growth in the state.


Commending the role 2 Division of the Nigerian Army and other security agencies have been playing in the state, Governor Makinde pledged his support to carry out the onerous task of securing lives and property in the state.



In the same vein, His imperial Majesty, Olubadan of Ibadan Land , Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji, Ajeogunguniso 1, has described the role of the Nigeria Army as very important in the security architecture of the nation.The Olubadan stated this when the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), paid him a courtesy visit at his palace in Popo Yemoja area of Ibadan. The Imperial Majesty described the role and actions of the COAS, especially in the war against insurgency and banditry as commendable, calling for collaboration between the traditional rulers and the security agencies for enduring solution to emerging security challenges in the country.


The Royal father, speaking through the Balogun of Ibadan Land, High Chief Akintoye Owolabi Olakunlehin prayed for a better and peaceful Nigeria in the near future.


He however urged the Army not to relent in its operations against bandits' and insurgents' hideouts which has culminated in their surrendering in droves.

Responding, both at the government house and the Olubadan palace, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya appreciated the support and cooperation enjoyed by the Army from the Oyo state government and Olubadan in council, as well as the good people of Oyo State. The COAS solicited for more support and pledged that the Nigerian Army will continue to carryout its constitutional duties effectively and perform the role of providing aid to civil authority, when called upon to do so.


He assured that the existing cooperation between the Army and other security agencies, both in the state and the country at large would be sustained and reinvigorated for the common goal of securing the nation for peace, unity and stability.

#FreeGlory: 21 year old female, Glory Okolie remained unlawfully detained for 70 days - Sowore

#FreeGlory: 21 year old female, Glory Okolie remained unlawfully detained for 70 days - Sowore

Activist Omoyele Sowore is the Currently AAC National Chairman at it's Presidential candidate in 2019 general elections and convener of #RevolutionNow



On Friday I visited the IRT offices of the Nigeria Police Force in Abuja to see if I could visit a 21 year old female, Glory Okolie, who was arrested in Imo State  and had remained unlawfully detained for 70 days, although I was accompanied by one her lawyers, Samuel Ihensekhien Jnr, the police officer who met us, their legal officer at IRT in Abuja did not grant us access to to see her. 

So on Friday I reported my experience via my Facebook page as below: 


#FreeGlory I just left the Nigeria Police Force IRT office in Abuja where Glory Okolie is being detained for her alleged friendship with an #IPOB member. I went in company of a lawyer, Samuel Ihensekhien, but the police detaining her denied us access so we couldn’t see her, they claimed it was too late to let us visit on a Friday afternoon.  21 years old Miss Okolie has been in detention for more than 67 days, the police have used her as a beast of burden while in detention in Imo state where she was first detained at the dreaded “Tiger Base” in Owerri and refused to charge her to court ! This is so despicable! AND Today the Inspector of Police caused the press statementattached to be issued and here again Nigerians are being taken for a ride.


See my fresh comments below: 



#FreeGloryOkolie: After using Glory Okolie as beast of burden, abused by Nigeria Police Force officers  and unlawfully detained for over 70 days, and upon realising that the world has taken notice of her unlawful detention and abuse by police officers, the IGP of Police caused this “earthshaking” press release to be issued to demonise Glory Okolie. The first few questions to the IGP are these:

-Why was she detained and used as a beast of burden to cook and help police officers wash their clothes at Tiger Base in Owerri, Imo if she is so dangerous?

-Why not issue this release since her arrest 70 days ago?

- Why wasn’t she charged to court since her arrest when the law says you have no right to detain beyond  48 hours?

-Why was the fellow who exposed her unlawful detention also detained?


It is obvious that this belated press statement was designed as a ruse to cover up some police atrocities! 


PRESS RELEASE


VIOLENT ATTACKS IN THE SOUTH-EAST: POLICE ARREST MILITANTS’ SPY GIRL 

 


Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force, working with the Military and other security forces, have arrested one 22-year-old female suspect, Gloria Okolie, for her complicity in the series of deliberate and well-coordinated attacks on security formations, other critical national infrastructure including INEC offices and killing of security operatives in the South-Eastern part of the country. The suspect, a native of Umutanza in Imo State, was arrested following ongoing investigations and implementation of special operation, Operation Restore Peace, to amongst other things, break the information, drugs and arms supply chain to the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its armed wing, the Eastern Security Network in the South-East region.    


Police Investigations revealed that Gloria Okolie is a member of IPOB/ESN in Imo State who worked closely with one Benjamin Uzoma Emojiri a.k.a “Onye Army”, one of the ESN commanders earlier declared wanted by the Police for his lead roles in planning, coordinating and executing the attack on the Imo State Police Command Headquarters and Imo State Headquarters of the Nigerian Correctional Service. Her arrest and the revelations from her confession, assisted the Police in the arrest of “Onye Army”, a major breakthrough in the quest to restoring law and order in the South-East region. 


Further investigations by the Police team revealed that Gloria Okolie takes advantage of her gender and seemingly innocuous looks as camouflage to carry out espionage against military and police targets on behalf of IPOB/ESN. The suspect also serves as an intermediate person, who receives cash, drugs and weapons on behalf of IPOB/ESN and deliver same to their commanders in their camps. Through her clandestine criminal activities, she actively aided and abetted the multiple acts of murder, arson and malicious damage to both private and public property by the ESN. A lot of the deadly and unfortunate attacks on security personnel and assets, with numerous fatalities, have the imprimaturs of Gloria Okolie, the spy girl of ESN militants. Investigation is being concluded to enable the Police arraign her in court for prosecution. 


The Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc (+), fdc, NPM, while commending security operatives for the unrelenting fight against violent crimes in the country, assured citizens of the commitment of the Force to improving public safety and security and upholding law and order in the country.

Fake Democrats: Sowore Slams Ekiti Governor, Fayemi For Praising Ex-Military Dictator, IBB On 80th Birthday

Fake Democrats: Sowore Slams Ekiti Governor, Fayemi For Praising Ex-Military Dictator, IBB On 80th Birthday


Human rights’ activist and Amnesty International designated Prisoner of Conscience, Omoyele Sowore, has lambasted the Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, for describing former military dictator, Ibrahim Babangida, as a patriotic and dedicated leader committed to the Nigerian project.

Fayemi had in a birthday message on Facebook in honour of Babaginda, who clocked 80 this week said, “I join the rest of the country to celebrate former head of state and elder statesman, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd), on his 80th birthday. 

“Gen. Babangida has demonstrated his patriotism, dedication and commitment to the Nigeria project as a soldier and commander-in-chief of the armed forces. 

“May Almighty Allah grant you wisdom and grace to enjoy this special day to the fullest, and to continue to make meaningful contributions to our dear country. Ameen.” 

Commenting on the Facebook post, Sowore described the governor and others like him as fake democrats. 

He said, “John Kayode Fayemi, Femi Fani-Kayode and Atiku are all among the fake democrats and rogues sending IBB, a well-known coupist and enemy of democracy birthday goodwill messages. Shame. 

“It is so sad to think that Kayode Fayemi was a member of the pro-democracy movement; he was one of the people masquerading as democracy “fighters” living abroad while Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida smothered the future of Nigeria by annulling the June 12 presidential election in 1993. 

“Fayemi and others were probably working for Babangida in those days while we as students and youths in Nigeria were moving from prison to prison. Tueh! Now we know! #RevolutionNow.” 

Known as Maradona, Babangida was born on August 17, 1941.

He was Nigeria’s military president between August 1985 and 1993.

IBB led the coup of August 1985 to topple Muhammadu Buhari who was then the Head of State from December 31, 1983.

At the time of the coup, Babangida was the Chief of Army Staff.

The dictator also annulled the June 12, 1993 election.

The election, which was keenly contested by the candidate of the Social Democratic Party, the late MKO Abiola; and the Bashir Tofa of the National Republican Convention, and said to have been won by Abiola, was adjudged as the most transparent election in Nigeria’s political history.

But the poll was declared a nullity by the military regime led by Babangida.
