OMG!! Five corpers kidnapped on way to NYSC camp

Some gunmen on Wednesday kidnapped five members of the National Youth Service Corps who were travelling to their orientation camps in Akwa Ibom and Rivers states.

Two other passengers on the bus conveying the corps members were also kidnapped.

The fresh graduates and the other victims were travelling from Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, to Rivers and Akwa Ibom states where they were billed to undertake their three-week NYSC orientation.

They were kidnapped on the Owerri-Port Harcourt Expressway and taken to the Umuapu forest in the Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area of Imo State.

Briefing journalists after the victims were rescued by the police, the Commissioner of Police in charge of the Imo State Police Command, Dasuki Galadanchi, said the kidnappers established contact with the families of the corps members and demanded N5m ransom.

The CP gave the names of the corps members as Abiola Temitope, Olubisi Adekanmi, Jose Temitayo, Folarin Opeyemi and Shonibare Ademola.

Other victims were identified as Leonard Uzondu and Raymond Ojodahe.

The CP said, “The victims were travelling from Ibadan to Port Harcourt. Five out of the seven of them are prospective corps members. They were on their way to the NYSC orientation camps in Rivers and Akwa Ibom states for the three weeks camping.

“They were kidnapped around 5am on Wednesday at Umuapu, on the Owerri-Port-Harcourt Expressway. The kidnappers took them to a forest and dispossessed them of all their belongings, including money, phones, ATM cards and voter cards.

“They compelled them to call their relatives at home to speak to them. Immediately contact was established, they instilled fear in the parents and demanded N5m for their freedom.”

The CP explained that through intelligence gathering, the operatives of the Counter Terrorism Unit of the command were alerted.

He said, “The operatives went into the bush and on sighting the officers, the kidnappers abandoned their victims and fled. We rescued them unhurt, but the hoodlums made away with their valuables.

“This is part of the dividends of community policing. I urge Imo State residents to keep sharing information with the police. We cannot do it alone.”

Galadanchi said he had ordered investigation into the incident with a view to arresting the fleeing suspects.

One of the victims, Abiola, said, “They stopped our bus and ordered us at gunpoint to follow them into the forest. They were five with guns and machetes.

“In the bush, they took our belongings except our credentials and ordered us to call our parents. They made a demand of N5m, but they later brought it down to N3m.

“They ordered us to close our eyes. They were even quarrelling on how to share our personal belongings which they took from us. It was in the process that the police intervened and they abandoned us and ran away.”


PDP Candidate Atiku Abubakar declares paltry N20m yearly income

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, believed to be a multi-billionaire has declared a paltry yearly personal income of N20 million.

The shocking revelation was contained in the credentials that Atiku filed with the the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The PDP candidate, who prides himself as a businessman and job creator said he earned only N60.2 million in three years and paid a paltry N10.8 million tax between 2015 and 2017.

Some reports have estimated Atiku’s wealth at about $1.4 billion.

In 2014, Atiku boasted that he was the greatest employer of labour in Nigeria, with about 50,000 Nigerians on his payroll.

“As an individual, I believe my record in employing young Nigerians is unrivalled by any single private investor in Nigeria,” the former vice president said.

He has investments in media, shipping, education, and other sectors. One of the companies, where he has substantial interest is Intels, which recently ran into trouble with the Nigerian government for not remitting revenue due to the Nigerian treasury.

Nobody will remove Oshiomhole as APC National Chairman,we will stop it – Senator Omo-Agege


S’South already hunting for ‘acceptable, mature’ candidate – Alhaji Unagha, ex presidential aspirant
APC to set up Reconciliation Committee to appease aggrieved stakeholders
By Emma Amaize, Regional Editor, South-South
ASABA- SENATOR Ovie Omo-Agege representing Central senatorial district, Delta State, in the Senate, Thursday, declared that nobody would remove Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as National Chairman of the party, saying: “We will resist it and it will fail.”

Besides, he stated that Oshiomhole enjoys the support of President Muhammadu Buhari and power brokers in the Presidency, while a Reconciliation Committee comprising leaders of the party would soon move out to dialogue with those still upset over the outcome of the primaries.

According to Senator Omo-Agege,stakeholders of the party in the South-South, the home base of Oshiomhole, have begun search for his replacement, dismissed the move.

However, ex-APC presidential aspirant, Alhaji Mumakai Unagha, who spoke to journalists, confirmed the hunt for “an acceptable and mature candidate” to replace Oshiomhole.

Unagha asserted: “Gentlemen of the press, following the clarion call on the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Adams Oshomhole to resign, we, APC stakeholders, in the South-South have commenced search for his replacement.”

“Oshiomhole is no longer a saleable candidate, he is a bad product that cannot be hawked in the public market nor advertised.

“Whether the position of the national chairman will still come from Edo State for now I do not know as the immediate past chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun as well as the current chairman are all from Edo state

“We are working within the time frame to come out with an acceptable and mature candidate that would savage the party and deliver it to victory in the 2019 general election.

“We, the stakeholders wish to assure APC faithful across board that hope is not lost yet as the party will come out stronger and deliver President Muhammadu Buhari in the forth coming election.

“We call on the national chairman to respect the wishes of the people by resigning since the clarion calls is also a no confidence vote on him.

“We also call on President Muhammadu Buhari to save the situation to relieve the chairman of the party so that he can face his corruption case or cases that are pending in courts. APC is a party of integrity and genuine change. APC is a party of integrity and genuine change,” Unagha stated.

Dismissing Unagha, Senator Omo-Agege said: “I am not aware of any move to replace Oshiomhole and to the extent that there is any such move, it will fail. It will fail because I know that Oshiomhole enjoys the confidence of Mr. President, he enjoys the confidence of who is who in the Presidency.”

“Yes there are lots of agitations and allegations flowing from the primaries. You will imagine that as a family that there are bound to be problems after the primary, it is the ability of the party to address the post-primary challenges that makes it strong or otherwise.

Man Arrested For Climbing billboard hanger with threats to commit suicide if President Buhari doesn’t vacate his office

The Adamawa state police command has arrested Lawan Faro, the man who climbed the billboard hanger in Yola, the state capital yesterday with threats of jumping to his death if President Buhari fails to resign.

Lawan said he would commit suicide if Buhari does not vacate the seat for Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidnetial candidate.

Speaking after his arrest, Lawan said,

At about 8:00pm, some soldiers came by in company of some people who claimed that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar was waiting for me, so I was convinced and I came down. They had a car parked waiting to take me to Atiku’s house, but unfortunately it was a trick because here I am, they brought me to Jimeta Police Station. But make no mistake about my demand; the moment I regain my freedom, I’ll be heading to a taller object, possibly a telecommunications mast, to carry out my threat.


Fedral Government set to register Nigerian poor

The Ministry of Budget and National Planning, says the National Social Registry (NSR) is part of Federal Government’s effort to capture the Nigerian poor and vulnerable in the country.

Mr Olajide Odewale, the ministry’s Permanent Secretary said this during an engagement meeting with Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and Donor partners on NSR in Abuja.

Odewale, represented by Mr Kayode Obasa, the Director, Social Development of the ministry said the register would help improve services in the country.

“A lot of misinformation and invalidated data are out there in the public domain.

“And attempt to use the data to implement the interventions have led sometimes to undesirable outcomes, hence the need to take the right steps.

“First, by warehousing details of the poor and vulnerable Nigerians irrespective of the location and socio-economic standings.

“I therefore, thank President Muhammadu Buhari for his visionary position and determination to ensure that every Nigerian is counted and given basic social service.’’

Odewale expressed optimism that the forum would address grey areas of the current NSR and shed more light on how MDAs could leverage on the register.

He said it would also provide the developers of the NSR feedback from seasoned technocrats on measures to better implement the register.

Odewale expressed the ministry’s commitment to ensuring that the NSR was sustained and utilised by all stakeholders.

He then commended the representatives of the various MDAs and donor partners for their efforts and contribution to the success of the NSR.

The World Bank Representative, Prof Foluso Okunmodewa, in his remarks expressed optimism that the NSR would resolve the errors of exclusions in the country.

“What is important for us at the bank is to make sure that we protect the quality and credibility of this register.

“I enjoin all the partners to ensure the register in terms of credibility is protected,’’ he said.

Mrs Hajara Sami, the Acting National Coordinator, Youth Employment and Social Support Operation (YESSO), said the forum was timely and pledged commitment to support the NSR drive.


Unbelievable President Buhari set to reduce fuel price to N95 per litre

Barring any last unforeseen circumstances the Federal Government is set to reduce the price of fuel to 95 Naira per litre .

Our source in the presidency said president Buhari who oversees the Petroleum ministry is set to make the reduction which would take effect from the first week of November.

The cost reduction of fuel our sources claim is not in anyway related to  the current price in per barrel of oil .It is alleged that the Presidency are desperately looking for measures that would boost the electoral chances in next years General elections.

Presently the presidency is in consultation with stakeholders in the oil industry in both the upstream and downstream sectors to see ways the reduction could be feasible .Already fears are been raised about the possibility of such reduction and the implications it would have in the polity .Buhari who according to sources is adamant and insisting on going ahead with the plan reduction with high hopes of endearing the electorates to his government.

How the crisis that may follow with such a reduction without adequate consultations with oil stakeholders and OPEC is yet to be ascertained .

The Petroleum Product Pricing Regulatory Agency [PPPRA] and the Department of Petroleum Resources [DPR] have been asked to enforce strict compliance with the new pricing regime as soon as it becomes effective.

Already the Federal Government claims to be paying subsidy for the landing cost of PMS .

The new measure is a reversal of government’s policy on the matter.

When reminded of the technical difficulties involved with such a hasty reduction our source who craved anonymity claims that this is politics and remains strictly politics.

Recall in January 2015 the government of Goodluck Jonathan reduced the price of fuel from N97 per litre to N87 per litre on the eve of the general elections.

Only My son In-law Nwosu can win Imo 2019 gov — Imo state gov Okorocha

IMO State Governor, Rochas Okorocha  yesterday  said that  only his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, can win Imo 2019 governorship election in the state.

IPOB reportedly sacks Nnamdi Kanu as leader for valuing his Dog above Murdered ipob Members

The Director of Strategy and Documentation of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Olisa Mbakwe on Monday announced that its leader, Nnamdi Kanu has been sacked from the group.

Mbakwe said Kanu was fired for placing more value on his dog than those murdered in the struggle for the realisation of Biafra.

Speaking during Sunday’s broadcast from his base in Israel, Kanu mourned his dog and “a few other people” in his compound, who lost their lives when military men invaded the place in September 2017.

Kanu had said during the broadcast, “The Army of the zoo killed my dog Jack and a few other people in my compound. I am sorry for what my sureties are passing through, but I want to assure them that they will have a special place in Biafra. I shall not be honouring the court.”

Reacting, Mbakwe described Kanu as an “insensitive and callous leader that has no value for his own followers but rather his dog, Jack whom he paid tributes to after his long disappearance from the struggle”.

In a statement he personally signed, Mbakwe, of IPOB, also insisted that Kanu was a “traitor not worthy of any leadership position anywhere in the world”.

He stated that Kanu was removed for reasons which included, “personalisation of the Biafran struggle and derailing from the core objectives of IPOB as a grassroots movement”.

The statement read:

“On Sunday, October 21, 2018, an individual, Mazi Nnamdi Nwanekaenyi Kanu, claiming to be the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Director General of Radio Biafra made a live broadcast that has left us perplexed, because it is unthinkable that someone will impersonate IPOB to the point of plotting to abuse the organization to hurt the interest of Biafra.

“The strength of the Republic of Biafra that we are struggling to actualize, is in its human resources as embodied in our versatile youths that dominate the fields of play across sectors of human endeavor; the country we have set our vision on creating is therefore not to be made up of tombstones but of people fulfilling their life missions as ordained by God.

“Nnamdi Kanu relinquished his position as the leader of IPOB struggle the day he deserted our members to die, when they had mobilized to stand for our belief in Biafra at his residence in Afaraukwu.

Several of our members were injured and some died in that encounter and even after emerging from hiding more than one year later all Kanu could do was to desecrate their memory with his radio broadcast.

Nnamdi Kanu vividly, specifically and particularly recalled his family dog, Jack, by name while he dismissed our members that died as mere statistics — he only recalled them as 28 IPOB members.

“Even if Kanu had not deserted, there is no way we would have continued under the leadership of a man that values his family dog more than Biafrans.

“We are not unmindful of how Kanu struck the deal that granted him bail in the first place while abandoning our members, Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawusi, Bright Chimezie Ishinwa and Chidiebere Onwudiwe to languish in jail.

Instead of using his freedom to accelerate the freedom of these authentic freedom fighters, he rather went about Biafra land receiving obeisance from Biafrans like a monarch, when our dear land is completely republican. The travails of these our brothers are not over yet and might have been worsened by Kanu’s live broadcast, which has totally upset us.

“In line with the decisions earlier announced on Radio Biafra on November 17, 2017 that Mazi Ezenwachukwu Sampson Okwudili is the new director for the radio, we reaffirm that Mazi Nnamdi Nwanekaenyi Kanu remains sacked as the Director of Radio Biafra and has also been removed as the leader of IPOB since he has proven he is not a worthy leader that respects the sanctity of the lives of our members.

“Following interventions by our leaders, considerations were being made to reverse the earlier announcement but after studying the Kanu’s live broadcast from Israel we came to

Just in: Obanikoro Run Of to US as Fayose’s Court Case begins

Information reaching the PoliticsNGR newsdesk today reveals that Former Minister, Musliu Obanikoro has reportedly traveled to the US, a few days before the court case of Former Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose is set to commence.

Obanikoro, who was listed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC to testify against Fayose left the country last Wednesday for Medical treatment an did not specify a date of return.

A former Minister of State for Defence, Obanikoro, traveled shortly after he retrieved his passports from the EFCC.

This is despite a directive by the Federal Government that 50 persons under investigations for fraud exceeding N50m are restricted from travelling.

Obanikoro, who has an American passport and a Nigerian one, reportedly met certain conditions before his passports were returned to him.

Obanikoro has been under investigation since 2016 for allegedly receiving N4.7bn from the embattled former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), in 2014.

The former minister allegedly handed over about N1.3bn to former Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State and another N1.3bn to the then Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Osun State in 2014, Senator Iyiola Omisore.

After Fayose was arrested by the EFCC last Tuesday, however, it was learnt that Obanikoro traveled to the US.

The former minister, who has defected to the All Progressives Congress, had declared his intention to run for the Lagos West senatorial district election but shelved his ambition at the last minute.


OMG!Christians and Muslims clash : 55 dead after market row in Kaduna : presidency

Fifty-five people were killed this week in clashes between young Christians and Muslims in northern Nigeria following a dispute in a market, President Muhammadu Buhari said on Saturday.

Shiites in violent clash with Police in Kaduna as Police arrest 9 members of the Islamic group

Sources told AFP fighting broke out between Hausa Muslim and Adara Christian youths in the town of Kasuwan Magani’s market following a dispute among wheelbarrow porters.
Two people were said to have been killed in the market fracas on Thursday. The violence was temporarily halted by police but Adara youth later mobilised and attacked Hausa residents, burning homes, the sources added.

“Most of the killings were done in the second attack which took the Hausa community off guard,” said Muhammadu Bala, a Kasuwar Magani resident who lost his home.

In a statement the presidency said: “President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the latest communal violence in Kasuwan Magani in Kaduna State which claimed 55 lives.”

The violence followed a dispute in a market on Thursday, the presidency added.

The president expressed concern that Nigerians were too frequently resorting to violence over misunderstandings that could be resolved peacefully.

“No culture and religion supports the disregard for the sanctity of life,” he said, adding that “peaceful coexistence is necessary for the progress of any society and its wellbeing”.

He said that without harmony between communities an environment conducive to “our everyday businesses would be impossible to achieve”.

“Violence cannot be an alternative to peace. On the contrary, reliance on violence leads to ultimate self-destruction. Violence is an ill wind that blows nobody any good. Embracing peace is a necessity,” he said.

He appealed to community leaders to take part in regular dialogue to prevent misunderstandings and foster a spirit of tolerance and patience.

Kaduna state police commissioner Ahmad Abdur-Rahman told reporters on Friday 22 people had been arrested in connection with the violence.
