Senator Makarfi reveals agreement reached with Senator Sheriff

Ahmed Makarfi

In order to clear the air concerning the Governing Dickson’s led reconciliation committee meeting held to proffer a lasting solution to the lingering tussle between Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and Senator Ahmed Makarfi, the latter has come out to say that the agreement him and Sheriff entered into was that both parties agreed to not to engage in any public or media war.

According to Prince Dayo Adeyeye while speaking on behalf of Markafi stated that the faction only agreed before the Governor Dickson’s reconciliation committee to “stop further media attacks on officers, elders and other stakeholders of the PDP across the internal political divide.”

He added: “For the record, the agreement was not a political solution but rather an understanding reached urging representatives of ‘the key actors’ from both groups not to dissipate energy amongst themselves but to focus on how to unite as a formidable force capable of re-gaining power from the failed All Progressive Congress (APC)-led government in the 2019.

“The agreement also implores both parties to desist from making public derogatory remarks against each other that could cause inflammatory reactions capable of dragging the party to the mud.”

He further stated that the national caretaker committee and all the structures of the party were working with the reconciliation committee to reach a permanent political solution.

The four point media hostilities cessation agreement demands that “all actors of the parties should desist from making derogatory, inflammatory and divisive statements against party officials, stakeholders and members.”

It also said: “all key actors in the on-going peace process should henceforth desist from making public statements attacking each other and statements insinuating negative acts capable of dragging the party to the mud.”

Niger Delta ‘oil thieves’ said they want the government to give them recognition and legalise their crude oil refining activities

Niger Delta oil thieves

At last after several years of attacks and counter attacks between Niger Delta ‘oil thieves’ the boys have come out to state clearly what they want.

During a press interview with Sky News, the boys narrated how they are desperately fight to be recognised as legitimate and bring a lasting solution to the grave environmental pollution their activities are causing the volatile region.

According to Sky News, one of the Niger Delta kingpin operating in the creeks identified as Emo, stated how about 2,000 people of the region are being employed by him: "There are no jobs. We have nothing to do. You understand?

"That is why we are seeking help. We are begging for the government to assist us. You understand? We know what we're doing is wrong but we have no option."

During the press coverage with Sky, Emo admitted to the reporters that, it is not he was not aware of the effect their activities have on oil prices globally and locally, however, him and his workers feel the only alternative to survive is to steal oil.

"We are desperate," he said. "We have no jobs and no future."

Emo travels to different places with heavily armed guards to protect him from his enemies and other oil thieves.

Also the journalists were taken to one of Emo’s camps in Rivers State via speedboat, which is about 19 miles from Port Harcourt.

This area is lawless and kidnapping is rife.

Though Sky News crew went with their own security guards, Emo still went on to assure them all of his own personal guards who are hidden all over the mangrove swamps as they watch them arrive.

"They know me. They will not attack us," he said.

The only Nigerian navy boat, which is patrolling the waterways long before they reach Emo's illegal refinery, stopped them and demanded them to hand over all their fuel to them.

Despite a well-vaunted military campaign to put a stop to the illegal activities here, corruption is apparent and part of the problem.

“As we approach the illegal refineries, we see a plume of smoke indicating others are burning the crude.”

“Many of the thieves have stopped daytime burning to avoid being attacked by the Nigerian military.”

However, the government-authorised crackdown does not stop the stealing. It only sets them back for a short time.

"We have been attacked," Emo said. "It causes a lot of oil spillage and then we just start up again."

His audacity is quite astounding, so much that, he was asked by a member of the crew repeatedly about him being so outspoken about his illegal work and he replies: "I don't care. What can they do to me?

"I want to become legal. I want the government to say we can be legal and do this legally."

The damage to the area is extensive with oil everywhere, coating the mangrove swamps, all over the water and washing much further down the Delta polluting water supplies for thousands of others downstream.

Furthermore, the eyewitness stated that the lunatic had earlier on met the family prior a day before the incident making a demand for money to travel to an unknown location, however the family member he approached refused to grant his request, which instigated his anger against the family that possibly led to his barbaric act.

Thereafter, he came back early Sunday morning and set the house on fire through the roof.

The dead are three-year-old Blessing Ode, eight-month-old Friday Ode, 10-year-old Mummy Ogbada, six-year-old Daddy Ogbada and 46-year-old Ogunma Ogbada.

Akwa Ibomites finally bolstered Monday's nationwide protest against President Buhari's bad regime

Nationwide protest against Buhari's failure

After withdrawing from the nationwide protest against the Buhari led federal government’s failure to fix the challenges of the nation which it had hitherto promised to do during the electioneering campaign which made Nigerians to believe he was the sent ‘Messiah’, the people of Akwa Ibom State finally join the historic protest on Monday afternoon.

Lagos, Abuja, and Port Harcourt were some of the hot cities where the protest took place.

According to report, the Uyo protest was cancelled by Concerned Citizens who initiated the event with Tuface.

However, later in the day, at about 1.15pm a different group of Nigerians in the state, mobilised some persons to come out for the protest in order not to leave the state behind in the protest against the hardship being inflicted on Nigerians by the present administration.

The Uyo protest was led by a young lawyer named Toyo Jimmy under the auspices of One Voice Nigeria, in the state.

Speaking to pressmen, Jimmy stated that “Nigerians are suffering, and there are no clear-cut policies and programmes from the government to address the problems in this country. Instead, things are getting worse.”

“We are sending a clear message to the federal government that the Nigerian youth are hungry. We need a change that this government promised us,”

One of the protesters named Endiong John said that “I am sponsored by hunger. I am sponsored by the pains I go through every day.”

Another protester, Jonathan Akpan, told PREMIUM TIMES that he graduated two years ago from the department of Educational Technology, University of Calabar, and that he was tired of going around dropping applications in several places without getting any response.

“I have a strong feeling that this protest could bring about something good,” Mr. Akpan said.

Former minister told Vice President of Nigeria that he was wrong to have said Niger Delta oil will dry up in about 30 years

Vice President Osibanjo

Vice President Osibanjo’s visit to the Niger Delta hit the brick as various stakeholders from the region expresses disagreement with him in various ways.

Following the vice president’s comment which states that oil in Nigeria in the region would dry in about 20 to 30 years’ time, one time Minister of State for Education, Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi, has told the VP that oil well in the Niger Delta won't become scarce in the following 100 years.

In his response, the ex-Minister depicted Osinbajo's remark as political with no foundation, as he stressed that those in government must look for data where they don't have such.

Also while addressing journalists in Abuja, Gbagi likewise scowled at Osinbajo's visit to Olu of Warrior, His Majesty, Ogiame Ikenwoli and not going to Urhobo land.

Claiming that the federal government underestimated the general population of Urhobo for not going to the zone which was the hob of gas generation in the country.

Gbagi charged that the refusal of the Vice President to visit Ughelli in Urhobo land, was a replay of what occurred in 1971 when the then Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon booked a visit to the land however the secretary, an Itsekiri did not permit the visit to emerge.

As indicated by Gbagi, “While we are looking for peace, the sensibility of Urhobo people should not be taken for granted, the Urhobo people have been taken for granted for too long in the scheme of things.

“A similar situation happened in 1971 when Gowon was to visit Midwest which is now Delta, the Secretary then was an Iteskiri man and they crafted a similar visit to exclude the Urhobo nation, it is on record that Urhobos hold the bedrock of gas company, that is the major source of electricity in Nigeria today, not to talk of all the oil wells, pipelines across the entire Urhobo nation. Urhobos being the 4th largest nationality in Nigeria have been for sometimes now neglected and relegated to the background because of their peaceful nature.

“While it appears that trouble makers get greater reward in Nigeria, the school of violence, agitations does not belong to any ethnic group. I see the visit of the Vice President as irresponsibly put together as it is not in the interest of the much desired peace; I congratulate the Orodje of Okpe Kingdom and all those who walked out from that gathering of shame.

“I was reliably informed that the Programme which originally was to see the Vice President’s visit to Gbaramatu, the Olu of Warri and the visit to Ughelli where the oldest traditional ruler, the Owhorode of Olomu who is 100 years resides, to host all the traditional rulers in conjunction with a meeting with the Vice President, was truncated by the governor of the State and the deputy.

“We should root for genuine peace to support the good initiative of Mr. president and stop playing lip service or waste the economic base of Nigeria.

“Quoting the Vice President, at least 97% of the economy today is rested on oil and gasj his claim that oil will soon finish or dry up is a political statement without foundation, the gas situated on Otolobo at least will last for another 100 years, tax payers’ money earners like the Vice President and persons in government must seek information where they don’t have them and stop heating the polity.

“I will grant a statement on the second year of the administration in Delta as I have done in all previous governments. Urhobos will make our position known to the government at the Centre.

“The visit of the Vice President is meaningless, made no statement; it is akin to a personal visit to the Olu of Warri as there is no policy statement from the government addressing the issues at hand.”

Bring Back Our Girls (BBOGs) headed by Oby Ezekwesili suspects the government invitation to tour Sambisa Forest

Oby Ezekwesili

The support group known as Bring Back Our Girls, (BBOGs), headed by Mrs Oby Ezekwesili has communicated its doubt at the invitation reached out to the gathering by the Federal Government on an excursion to Sambisa Forest looking for the supposed missing Chibok school girls.

The Federal Government had composed a letter of welcome asking for agents of the gathering to be a part of a military operational flight to Sambisa Forest looking for the missing Chibok school girls.

The welcome letter was dated January 11, and marked by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, and tended to the convener of the gathering, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili.

The letter, which was made accessible to media houses, yesterday requested that the BBOG assign three individuals from the gathering to be a part of a guided outing planned for January 16, in acknowledgment of what it depicted as the steadfast duty of the gathering to the arrival of the hijacked Chibok young ladies.

As indicated by the letter,“The trip being planned by the military will see the Ministers of Defence and Information, the Chief of Air Staff and Chief of Army Staff joining the invited BBOG members and a select group of journalists.

“They will first go to the Nigerian Air Force Command Centre in Yola to witness firsthand the efforts being made to search for the girls by NAF and then join the day and night sorties with the NAF to the Sambisa Forest.

“Please note that due to limited seats on the search plane, only two of the invited BBOG members will join the NAF sorties. After the sorties, the team will return to Yola for bidding by the NAF on their daily search for the girls as well as all those who have been abducted by Boko Haram.

“Departure is scheduled for 8:30a.m. at the Air Force wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport on Monday the January 17, 2017, ” the letter reads in part.

The government expressed that the trek would benefit the BBOG the chance to witness and better comprehend the endeavours being made to secure the freedom of the young ladies and different casualties of Boko Haram terrorists.

Be that as it may, the gathering in its answer dated January 13, raised doubt on the desperation of the outing at short notice and the way that the Chief of Army staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, had just few days prior blamed the gathering for taking part in "social advocacy terrorism".

The gathering's letter marked by Oby Ezewkesili, stated that the government owned News Agency of Nigeria broadly detailed through the mass media that amid a visit to the armed force headquarters by a specific group which was attended to by the Chief of Army Staff, our organisation was assaulted for taking part in social advocacy terrorism. It is astounding that the said visit happened under forty eight hours before our group got your letter requesting that we go in the company of the same Chief of Army Staff to Sambisa Forest.

The gathering said “we demand therefore that ahead of the pre-tour meeting, the Chief of Army Staff retracts and apologizes for endorsing such slanderous attacks against our movement.”

President Buhari is not sincere with the Niger Delta issues - MEND


It appears that the reality of the degree of the insensitivity of the Buhari led federal government is beginning to hit the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) as their expectations are being cut-off each day.

Scarcely a year after the MEND gave its outright support for the present government of President Muhammadu Buhari, the movement on Sunday pulled back their support for the administration.

The representative of the obsolete activist group, Jomo Gbomo, expressed this in an electronic proclamation issued on Sunday where it passed a vote of no confidence on the central government, blaming her for playing politics with the issue of dialogue and the region’s development.

According to MEND since the time President Buhari met with the initiative of the Pan Niger Delta Forum under the headship of Chief Edwin Clark on November 1, 2016, some top government functionaries in Buhari's goverment had been "arrogantly" making disputable, biased, clashing and opposing proclamations about the issue of discovering enduring peace in the district.

As indicated by the release, “Without prejudice to the pre-2015 Presidential election endorsement freely and voluntarily given to President Muhammadu Buhari on January 6, 2015, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) hereby categorically and unequivocally pass a ‘vote of no confidence’ on the government of President Buhari.

“That prior to and after his reluctant meeting with the traditional rulers, opinion leaders and stakeholders of the Niger Delta region, under the auspices of Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) on November 1, 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari has been carrying on arrogantly and making controversial, prejudicial, conflicting and contradictory statements about the politics and economy of the oil-rich region.”

The announcement deplored that President Buhari has dependably, for reasons best known to him, held the Niger Delta district in hatred “while accusing and/or blackmailing the leadership of the region of not being ready for dialogue whereas it is the Federal Government who are not ready or willing to name a team to dialogue with the people.”

It affirmed that the administration had neglected to respect concessions came to before it consented to report a truce with activists in the locale including the arrival of the Okah siblings and a few other political prisoners and detainees of inner voice under a fabulous misdirection by the present government.

Court sentences son of a former district head to death by hanging


One Mu’ammar Tukur who happened to be the son of ex-District Head of Bakori has been given a death sentence by hanging by a Katsina State High Court after being convicted of committing murder when he stabbed one Shafir Muktar to death.

Justice Abbas Bawale in judgment stated that the prosecution which is being headed by Mr Aminu Garba successfully established the case of the alleged murder beyond reasonable doubt. This is because five witnesses along with other relevant exhibits were presented to prove their point, as being needed by law including the victim’s death, cause of the death and intention behind the act.

The incident happened April 21 2008 when a fight broke out between the convict and some of the witnesses presented by the prosecution at a viewing centre.

It was stated by the judge that attempt made by the defence counsel to dispute the evidence of the prosecution were all fruitless, when he argued that the metallic material used to commit the crime was not displayed before the court.

According to the judge, the convict ran away between 2008 and 2013, but was apprehended during his mother’s burial at the grave yard.

Speaking further, the judge held that the plea for leniency could not be heard due to some legal constraints as enshrined by law, and suggested for such plea to be forwarded to the state governor. And said an appeal could be made within the space of 90 days.
The judge also said the plea for leniency could not be entertained because the court’s discretion was blocked by law and directed that the plea should be sent to the state governor.

He advised the defence to file its appeal within 90 days.

Amazing how N100 sent two to early grave in Enugu State

Enugu killings

Bloodbath in Enugu State as Igbos and Fulanis clash in serious battle at the famous Gariki market on Wednesday night, resulting to the untimely death of two persons, are identified as Ali, a Fulani and Ifeanyi an Igbo.

According to eyewitnesses, the fight started as a result of a quarrel over the sum of N100, when late Ali, came to the abattoir situated in the Gariki market to slaughter a cow.

The witnesses stated that the proper place for Ali to slaughter his cow is the New Artisan market abattoir, but decided to choose Gariki market abattoir due to the closure of the New Artisan market by the state government, after a policeman was murdered by a crowd of keke riders.

Though late Ali pad the sum of N400 against the required N500, which angered Ifeanyi, which brought about the quarrel, which turned violent, in the process, Ali brought out a penknife and stabbed late Ifeanyi multiple times in his belly, showing his intestines, thus killing Ifeanyi on the spot.

In a swift retaliation, Ali also met his death when some Igbo traders around got angry at his barbaric act, caught him while running away and executed jungle justice on him.

Furthermore, the angry Igbo traders burnt a mosque situated inside the market, the Hausa/Fulanis go to worship.

But with the quick intervention of the State Police Command, more shops and lives would have been destroyed.

Boko Haram debunks Federal Government's victory in Sambisa Forest


There is a confusion trailing the victory of the gallant Nigerian Army against Boka Haram insurgents in Sambisa Forest.

Barely few days after the Nigerian government declared total eradication of the supposed last stronghold of the insurgents, the mysterious leader of the insurgents Abubakar Shekau resurfaced in a fresh video on Thursday debunking the alleged claim by the Nigerian government under the leadership of President Buhari saying they have been completed annihilated.

“We are safe. We have not been flushed out of anywhere. And tactics and strategies cannot reveal our location except if Allah wills by his decree,” Shekau said in the 25-minute video, flanked by masked armed fighters.

“You should not be telling lies to the people,” he said, referring to Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari who said on Christmas Eve that the extremist group had been defeated and driven away from the forest, its last known bastion.

“If you indeed crushed us, how can you see me like this? How many times have you killed us in your bogus death?” he asked.

Though the location the video was shot was not made clear, nevertheless, Shekau speaking both Hausa and Arabic claimed that the video was shot on Christmas Day.

Recall in September how the said Shekau showed himself in a video clip debunking all the claimed credited to the military that he had been seriously wounded during a major onslaught.

During his appearance, he vowed to continue the long battle with the Nigerian government unless Islamic state was imposed in northern Nigeria.

“Our aim is to establish an Islamic Caliphate and we have our own Caliphate, we are not part of Nigeria.”

President Buhari in an announcement said a months-long military invasion Sambisa Forest brought about the final defeat of Boko Haram insurgents in their last stronghold.

The claim and counter claim by the government and the insurgents somehow makes independent authentication of the government’s announcements about the successful invasion difficult.

In addition, different attacks from various locations is now making the said victory questionable, even though the military have been having upper hand in the battle.

More troubles for Nnamdi Kanu, as Justice Binta Nyako denies him bail

Nnamdi Kanu

Today’s ruling by the an Abuja High Court comes as a surprise to many who had hoped earlier that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) would be granted bail after local and international human rights groups condemned the manner in which the Buhari led government is handling the matter.

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Thursday (today) prevented leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, bail.

According to Justice Binta Nyako the offenses Kanu and others were standing trial for were not by any stretch of the imagination bailable.

She said the charge of treasonable felony they are confronting draws in a lifelong incarceration.

She thus denied all the suspects bail on the grounds that their case was touchy to national security.

Additionally, the trial judge while responding to a contention of Kanu's team of legal experts with respect to a late explanation made by President Muhammadu Buhari, where he guaranteed Kanu was liable of the offense he is standing trial for said, the president has the right to speak freely; he can express his assessment on any matter.

Review that Kanu, close by Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi, were re-summoned by the Federal Government on 11 count charge verging on psychological oppression, treasonable lawful offense and production of defamatory matter.

Justice Nyako as of late assumed control over the trial of Kanu taking after the withdrawal of the previous trial judge, Justice John Tsoho over claim of predisposition leveled against him by the safeguard group of the ace Biafra agitator.

Taking after his re-arraignment before justice Nyako of a similar court, the imprisoned IPOB pioneer via his legal team, had recorded an application for bail November 8.

Against the background of the application, the new trial judge had settled today, for thought of the application.

So painful how a 7-year-old boy was burnt to death for stealing common garri in Nigeria

Boy 7 burnt alive for stealing garri in Nigeria

Nigeria is seem to be only country where politicians and public office holders will steal billions and sometimes trillions and walk free on the street, after using the stolen wealth to bribe their way through legal process. But the hungry poor masses are always met with either instant jungle justice or jail sentence from magistrates and judges, after setting free high class public fund looters.

One wonders why a seven-year-old boy would be gruesomely burnt to alive for allegedly stealing common garri (locally processed) cassava, which virtually anybody could afford in Nigeria, no matter how difficult the economic climate might be. If not for anything, at least for the sake of God and considering the boy’s age, they would have asked him what pushed him into such act and see how the little boy could be rehabilitated.

The boy’s murder is now making the rounds on several social media showing how he was being beaten mercilessly and set ablaze.

While he was being killed no body rescued him, but now people are saying the government should investigate the incident, which no matter what they do, cannot never bring the poor boy back to life.

Buhari's government releases over 1271 Boko Haram suspects in Northern Nigeria

Boko Haram suspects released

In as much as nobody wants innocent children and women to be incarcerated for crime they know nothing about, the way in which the Burhari led government is releasing even those the public identifies as masterminds behind various terrorist acts is so alarming.

Former President Goodluck in a bid to end Islamic insurgency, made a lot of arrest of people who were caught in the act aiding and abetting terrorism. Which the Army then also confirmed with some evidences at the time of their arrests.

But it is so amazing that ever since President Buhari came into power there has been little or no arrest of any of these terrorists, rather, Buhari’s regime has been releasing all members of the Boko Haram terrorists who were in detention. Even those who committed murder in certain northern states have been tactically set free by the law court which is expected to protect innocent citizens. Recent one was the purported killers of a Christian lady in northern Nigeria.

As if that was not enough, the military have claimed that so far, about 1271 detainees have been set free after clearing them of any link with the Boko Haram terrorists group. So one wonders how most of the evidences they displayed when these people were arrested came about.

Information regarding the release of the suspected Boko Haram members was made known by Brig.-Gen. Victor Ezugwu, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, Maiduguri, during a forum organised for the reintegration of children related with armed group in Maiduguri

“The Nigerian Army gives utmost priority to the rights of detainees especially women and children.

“We always try to fast track investigation to determine their fate, while those found innocent were released with out delay,” he said.

Ezugwu added:” Consequently, between February and October this year we have had five releases.

“In February 135 persons comprising mainly women and children were released, 204 were released in May, while the remaining three releases were carried out in September and October”.

He said that the army had also improved on the provision of welfare for the detainees.

“As part of the military high command care for the vulnerable persons under our protective custody.

“We have identified areas needing attention including feeding, health care, decongestion of cells, respect for detainees rights, sanitation and personal hygiene, ” Ezugwu said.

He said children and vulnerable persons were fed three times daily with balanced diet.

“We always provide meat or fish in every meal and drinks every Sunday for them.

“If fact, some of those released would have preferred to remain with us if they had the choice rather than move to IDPs camps,” he said.

Ezugwu commended the organisers of the forum, saying the event was timely.
