  1. Kidnapping, banditry sparked a protest in Zamfara earlier today. See thread Addressing a press conference on April 2, the Commissioner of Information in Zamfara, Ibrahim Dosara, revealed that no fewer than 2,619 people were killed in the state between 2011 and 2019 He added that bandits abducted 1,190 people from various parts of Zamfara in the last eight years, and over 100,000 people were displaced from their ancestral homes as a result of bandits’ activities, while 14,378 livestock were rustled within the period. Dosara noted that the Zamfara State government has spent the sum of N970 million on payment of ransom to bandits to secure the release of kidnapped victims since 2011. He lamented that there were more than 100 different camps and over 30,000 bandits operating across Zamfara and beyond, but the state government would continue with its amnesty programme for bandits as part of measures to secure its people.
  2. Governor Hope Uzodinma has described the murder of APC chieftain, Ahmed Gulak as a clear case of 'Political Assassination'. The governor made this comment during a Press Conference on the unfortunate incident on Monday. Uzodinma expressed deep sadness over the occurrence adding that the late Gulak was a close friend. "It is with a very heavy heart that I address you today. The pain of losing a person or loved one, the horror of holding your family member in his or her final moments, the anger of someone being so reckless, so thoughtless that their bullet destroyed your life, are emotions no individual should ever have to endure." "I sympathize with the families of those who lost their lives through stray bullets during thi s period. As you know, the death of anyone diminishes mankind. But the brutal and callous assassination of Alhaji Ahmed Gulak yesterday, Sunday, May 30th, 2021 on his way to the Sam Mbakwe Cargo Airport, is painful because he did not deserve to die that way." "The death of this compatriot is a personal loss to me because he was an invaluable friend and brother whose sense of justice, fairness and uprightness endeared him to me." He disclosed that Gulak was on an official assignment in Imo state. "Alhaji Ahmed Gulak was in Imo State for a national assignment. He came to Owerri with the Senate Committee on Constitutional Amendment. Being a humble man, he chose to travel incognito according to his friend who was with him. Someone must have trailed him from the hotel to the airport. That is exactly why his gruesome murder appears to be a clear case of political assassination." "According to reports by the police, he was shot in cold blood and the assailants did not remove a pin from him. It is most benumbing that people chose to waste such an innocent blood in such a dastardly and cowardly manner." He vowed that those responsible for Gulak's death will definitely be brought to book. Uzodinma also revealed that his convoy was never attacked. "Finally, let me also clarify the story trending on the social media platforms, that my convoy was attacked, my convoy was never attacked. That is the wish of those who murdered Gulak," he said.
  3. Press Statement PDP Insists APC is Responsible for Killings in Nigeria…Berates APC For Seeking To Politicize Gulak’s Murder The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stands by its findings and declaration that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its leaders are responsible for the killings, bloodletting and acts of terrorism in our country. The PDP asserts that the resort to blackmail, threats and attack on the PDP and other well-meaning Nigerians as witnessed in APC’ statement today, in which it attempted to trivialize, politicize and dismiss the alarming violence in the country, cannot deter the PDP from further exposing the atrocities of the APC and its leaders. Our party insists that every material evidence shows that the APC and its leaders are implementing their supporter of APC agenda to balkanize and destroy our nation through their unholy body language, divisive policies, violent acts, abuse of human rights, disregard to our national sensibilities and shameful patronizing of terrorists and bandits, which have led to widespread killings, violence and dissonances across our nation. The APC and its administration have become sanctuaries of known and self-confessed terrorism apologists and individuals known to openly romance with bandits and terrorists. The APC and its government would rather blame victims of violence instead of going after the assailants and bringing them to book as witnessed in the case of the 43 rice farmer killed by terrorists in Borno as well as the murder of the former political adviser to erstwhile President Goodluck Joanthan, Barr. Ahmed Gulak. Our party sternly berates the national leadership of the APC for seeking, in its press statement today, to politicize the gruesome murder of a prominent Nigerian like Ahmed Gulak, an incident that happened in a state under its control, instead of forcefully condemning that act and giving its government a definite marching order to bring the culprits to book. Nigerians are still expecting some explanations from the APC and its government over that gruesome murder in Ngor Okpalla. It is rather absurd and a mark of leadership failure that the APC is attacking the PDP for exposing its failures and complicity in the violence and killings in our country but has failed to provide answers to revelations that many of the bandits, terrorists and kidnappers ravaging our nation are political mercenaries it imported, as criminal thugs, to assist it to unleash violence on Nigerians during elections. These APC mercenaries, having no stake in our national life, are now killing and maiming Nigerians and turning their evil enterprise, emboldened by the APC, into a lucrative venture by extorting money through huge ransoms. Of course, it is no longer news that parents of kidnapped students of Greenfield University Kaduna paid N180 million and motorcycles to the abductor to secure the release of their children and wards. Just on the heels of the release of the university students, over 200 students were abducted from another school in Tegina, Niger state. We challenge APC to come clean on the connection of its leaders with these bandits as well as why it has never raised a strong voice against the incessant mass abduction of students in various parts of the country. Our party wants the APC and its leaders to know that they must answer for their atrocities and that this resort to blackmails, threats and distortion of facts will not sway Nigerians. Let it be known to them that surely, they will account for all the blood they have spilled.

  5. A Nigerian Air Force ATR 42 aircraft heading for Owerri, Imo State, to aid military operations in the South-East region, crash-landed in Akure, the Ondo State capital, SaharaReporters has gathered. SaharaReporters learnt from top NAF sources that the crash-landing of the ATR 42 occurred about two weeks ago – a week before the late Chief of the Army Staff, Lt Gen Ibrahim Attahiru, died in a similar NAF jet crash in Kaduna State. It was gathered that military authorities covered up the incident and failed to make it public to avoid national embarrassment. Top sources released the photograph of the ill-fated ATR 42 to SaharaReporters, adding that the aircraft was conveying some Special Forces personnel to Imo State, some of whom were reportedly injured after the crash. But there was no casualty according to sources, which made it easier for the NAF authorities to be silent on the incident. “It was an ATR 42 and we were going to Imo State. The aircraft crashed-landed the next day; the authorities are hiding the incident. The crash occurred in the morning. It was a solely military affair and they prevented anyone of us from taking photographs of the incident. “It crash-landed at the Akure airport two weeks ago but they hid it. About 15 to 20 personnel were on board to the South-East.” In about three months, the NAF jets have crashed in the North-Central, North-East, Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, and now South-West regions, raising fears about the maintenance culture of the military aircrafts. SaharaReporters last Friday reported that the families of two Nigerian Air Force pilots – Flight Lieutenant John Abolarinwa and Flight Lieutenant Ebiakpo Chapele – are still in the dark about their loved ones onboard an Alpha Jet which went missing since March 31. The NAF has yet to provide an update on the location of the missing Alpha Jet NAF 475 which believably crashed on March 30 in Borno State as well as on the bodies of the late pilots, giving the families a great concern. “The families are in distress. Nobody is talking about the two pilots on the Alpha Jet. The NAF’s investigation is taking forever. Now that another crash of bigger national importance has happened, the authorities may not even revert to the missing jet in Borno State, so as not to put up too many negativities into the public domain,” a source had said. The fighter jet went missing on Wednesday, March 30, around 5pm, amidst fears that it might have been captured or shot down by the Boko Haram terrorists. The Alpha Jet, a light attack jet and advanced jet trainer aircraft, has played a significant role in Nigeria’s counter-insurgency campaign in the North-East theatre of operation. It was acquired by NAF in 2014 from the United States of America air force. The last update the NAF gave was on April 2, when the NAF authorities said that intelligence gathered so far indicated that the jet might have crashed although it had yet to know the whereabouts of the jet or the two pilots on board. Military sources had said at that time that the jet crashed in the Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State, although the NAF did not confirm the location. It will be recalled that in February 2021, a NAF Beechcraft King Air 350i Surveillance Aircraft also crashed in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory. The outcome of NAF’s supposed investigations into the crash had yet to be made public. http://saharareporters.com/2021/05/31/exclusive-nigerian-air-force-jet-crash-lands-akure-covered-military-authorities

  7. Angry youths have staged a violent protest along the Gusau – Kaura Namoda Highway in Zamfara State. A source told SaharaReporters that the protesters occupied the road very early on Monday over the incessant attacks by bandits in their communities. According to him, the protest took a violent dimension when youths blocked the highway along Kurya junction and stopped over 500 public vehicles travelling along the road from continuing with their journey. He also stated that movement was hindered at the exact spot bandits normally pass through to invade the communities. The protesters condemned the unending insecurity and attacks which the people of the area have suffered at the hands of the bandits. They also claimed there are attacks by bandits in the area every day to kill and kidnap residents while some houses are burnt in the process.
  8. The Federal Capital Territory Administration(FCTA) has debunked rumours that Terror Sect, Boko Haram launched an attack in Abuja recently. The FCTA, in a statement shared via its Twitter handle, described the report as a “mischievous publication targeted at creating tension among residents” of the capital territory. “The attention of the FCT Joint Security Team has been drawn to a viral publication in the social media purporting that the ‘Federal Capital Territory is under the attack of Boko Haram Terrorists’. The Joint Security Team of the FCT wishes to refute the mischievous publication targeted at creating palpable tension amongst the weil-spirited residents of the FCT.” “Contrary to the speculation, the Heads of Security Agencies (HOSA) in the Federal Capital Territory in the bid to address security concerns within the FCT, held a strategic meeting on Thursday 29th April,2021, where the team resolved to deploy alternative proactive crime-fighting measures within the FCT particularly in areas with challenging terrain including aggressive motorized/foot patrols.” “However, the patrols will be conducted in line with the peculiarities of every terrain within the territory, in other words, the team has adopted the use of motorcycles, horses and other technical means of gathering intelligence to checkmate criminality within the Federal Capital Territory.” “In view of the above, the Joint Security Team chaired by the Commissioner of Police CP. Bala Ciroma enjoins residents to remain calm, law-abiding and verify information before circulating such information to avoid creating panic amongst members of the public.”
  9. Abubakar Bello, governor of Niger state, has travelled out of the country. TheCable has not independently confirm the mission of the trip but the development comes less than 24 hours after bandits abducted some schoolchildren from Salihu Tanko Islamic School in Rafi LGA of Niger state. The bandits invaded the school on Sunday evening. They were said to have arrived in their numbers on motorcycles and started shooting sporadically into the air. The incident is the second in the state this year and among the series of abductions of schoolchildren by bandits in the northern part of the country. They had abducted dozens of children from Government Science College (GSC) Kagara and released them a few weeks after. Read Also: In a statement on Monday, Mary Noel-Berje, chief press secretary to Bello, said the governor assured the state of the rescue and safe return of the students. She added that the governor is expected back in the country “within the shortest period”. “Governor Sani Bello also assured all Nigerlites that Government will continue to do all it can to protect the lives and property of its citizens while guaranteeing the continued peace and stability of the state,” she said. “While assuring the parents of the abducted children of their safe return as the security agencies have been directed to do all it can to bring back the children as soon as possible, the Governor also urged the citizens to cooperate and share intelligence and information that will help in the quick rescue of the children.”
  10. Soldiers in show of force You may observe order if you like — Umahi Price hike, panic buying in Awka, Aba, Umuahia Residents of the five southeastern states are gripped with fear over the sit-at-home order issued by the leader of the proscribed group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to mark the anniversary of the Biafra Republic Remembrance Day. IPOB is remembering civil war victims over two days, with a candlelit march on Sunday evening and a strict order for people to remain indoors on Monday for their own safety. The streets of Owerri, the capital of Imo State, were already deserted on Sunday, as residents stayed indoors after the killing of a former aide of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmad Gulak by unidentified gunmen. Some hoodlums on Sunday razed the Njaba office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Njaba Local Government Area of the state. The office is located at Okwudor. The incident is coming less than 24 hours after Atta Police station, customary and high courts were burnt down in the same local council. Price hike, panic buying in Awka Prices of foodstuff have gone up astronomically in Awka, the capital of Anambra State as residents engage in panic buying ahead of the sit-at-home order. Daily Trust’s visit to Eke Awka market, a major market in the city revealed that meat, tomato, rice, and other food items had gone up. A paint rubber (four-litre cylindrical container) of rice that was sold at N1,500 is now N2,400 while meat that was sold at N5,000 is now over N8,000. Fresh tomato that was sold for N200 is now between N500 and N600. A paint rubber of garri that was sold for N1,100 is now between N1,800 and N2,000. A resident, Mrs. Nkechi Ogwu, told Daily Trust that the prices of foodstuff have gone up because people were trying to stock their homes with food items ahead of the sit-at-home order. Residents of Aba, the commercial nerve centre of Abia State, yesterday rushed to the markets to make last minute purchases of perishable and non-perishable items. Ariaria International Market, Power Line, Bakassi Shoe Plaza, Ahia Ohuru, Shopping Centre and Cemetery markets recorded huge sales. The Abia State Police Command enjoined residents and visitors to the state to disregard IPOB, MASSOB or any other pro-Biafra group sit-at-home order. Its spokesman, Geoffrey Ogbonna, urged Abians to go about their lawful duties and businesses without any fear of intimidation or molestation. Ogbonna, who assured the residents of the safety of their lives and property during and after Monday, May 31 stated that the police in conjunction with other sister agencies were working round the clock to ensure that Abia is safe. Men of the Nigerian Army are visibly parading different streets, flashpoints in a show of force while Police surveillance helicopters are in the air, adding more fear and panic to the mind of the people. Meanwhile, the curfew imposed by the governor of the state, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu in Aba and Umuahia metropolis between 8 pm and 6 am daily is still in place. Disregard order — Police The Enugu State Police Command has asked residents of the state to ignore the sit-at-home order and go about their legitimate activities without fear of intimidation or harassment as adequate security has been provided by the command to ensure the safety of citizens. In a statement by the police spokesman, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu, urged residents to “totally disregard the unwarranted publication making rounds on social media and purportedly ordering people to sit-at-home, rather than go about their legitimate businesses.” You may observe sit-at-home order if you like – Umahi Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has urged traders to observe Monday 31 sit-at-home order if they so wish. Umahi gave the order on Sunday evening in a statement made available to newsmen by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Francis Nwaze. Umahi made the call less than 24 hours after he threatened to seize any shop or business premises that are locked up on Monday in compliance with the no-movement order of IPOB. The statement reads: “The Government of Ebonyi State has received several requests from some families and residents of the state, requesting that they would like to remain indoors on Monday, May 31, 2021, to organise private family prayers in honour of their loved ones who were murdered during the unfortunate civil war. Some of the people with this special request own shops in some of our markets across the state. “While as a government, we remain resolute in the protection of lives and property of Ebonyians and all residents of Ebonyi State, we are aware that it is the right of anyone to remain at home or go about his/her normal businesses in this regard. “Following the foregoing, the Governor, Engr David Nweze Umahi, who is highly in touch with the people has directed that those who may wish to remain at home with their shop(s) locked should neither be penalised, nor their shop(s) seized as it is their constitutional right while the rights of those who may wish to go about their normal businesses should not be infringed upon as it is equally their constitutional right. “He has also directed security agencies to do everything possible to maintain law and order in the entire Ebonyi State while maintaining the ban of any procession and gathering of any kind throughout the state.”
  11. Fulani herdsmen hitherto grazing in the South Eastern part of Nigeria, have reportedly fled the zone and are now settling in some communities in Ogbadibo, Okpokwu, Ado and other Local Government Areas of Benue State. The invasion may not be unconnected to the current unrest in the Southeast birthed by the activities of the Eastern Security Network, ESN which was established by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB to stop the activities of herdsmen in the region. The recent resolve by the Southern Governors who banned open grazing in the region may have also triggered the sudden relocation to neighbouring communities. DAILY POST reports that the communities in the aforementioned Local Government Areas are neighbouring villages to some parts of Enugu and Ebonyi States. Ogbadibo and parts of Okpokwu are bordered by Udenu Local Government of Enugu State while parts of Ado, particularly the Agila community is bordered by Ebele village, Ngbo in Ohaukwu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. Our correspondent gathered that the herders are currently settling in some of the communities, triggering tension in the areas. An opinion leader and head of a community in Owukpa in Ogbadibo, Chief Akogwu Agada told DAILY POST correspondent that some parts of the community have been occupied by the herdsmen. “They are everywhere here in Owukpa but their major base is in Ankpa. They have clashed with our farmers several times due to the destruction of crops by their cattle. “We will be glad if the government can come to our aid to chase them out of our land before they resort to attacking and killings us here”, Chief Akogwu noted. A member of the recently disbanded vigilante group, Mr Apochi Adams who spoke with our correspondent from Ichama in Okpokwu Local Government, narrated a similar incident. According to him, there is no part of the community that the herdsmen are not using for grazing. “We have clashed with them several times trying to send them away from our land but they always resist”. Similarly, A farmer, Mr James Adoga who spoke with our correspondent from Orokamu in Ogbadibo, lamented how his casava plantation was destroyed by the herders who grazed on his farm. Adoga revealed that the herders stormed the community recently with their cattle, family and other property to settle in some of the villages. “We are helpless in this place. Farming is the only business we use to survive and the Fulani men have come to destroy our only source of hope. “When we see them on our land, and we complain, they threaten to kill us and due to news we have been getting from far places, we have no courage to confront them,” he stated. DAILY POST reports that the development is coming despite the efforts of the state government to enforce the open grazing prohibition law across the 23 LGs of the state. Recall that the state governor, Samuel Ortom in 2017 signed the Anti-Open Grazing bills into law as a measure to end the incessant crisis between farmers and herdsmen. However, the herders who were angered by the law, have continued to unleash terror on residents of communities in relatively all parts of the state. Recently, there was a surge in the deadly attacks as many residents have been butchered while over one million others were displaced across the three senatorial districts in the state. DAILY POST recalls that armed men suspected to be Fulani militias, on Thursday night killed 36 residents of Shikaan Mbagena Kpav community in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of the state. The armed men invaded the community and slaughtered scores at midnight when residents were fast asleep. 36 bodies were recovered while an unspecified number of persons sustained various degrees of injuries. Recently, gunmen suspected to be herdsmen also attacked the Tse Amgbem community near Aondoana in Gwer West Local Government Area of the State, killing 11 persons as residents deserted the community and increased the number of Internally Displaced Persons camped across the state. The Gwer West Local Government Chairman, Mrs Grace Igbabon who confirmed the incident to DAILY POST, lamented how his people were sacked from their ancestral homes by the militias. Similarly, a few weeks ago, about seven persons were confirmed dead, with many others injured, after armed Fulani herdsmen attacked Abagena community housing Internally Displaced Persons camp in Makurdi Local government Area of the State. Subsequently, the youths, who were angered by the killings, stormed the Makurdi-Lafia road with the lifeless bodies of the deceased to protest incessant attacks on their communities. Reacting, the State Governor, Samuel Ortom in a statement, described the attack on the IDPs camp as inhuman, barbaric and unacceptable. The Governor called on President Muhammadu Buhari to live up to his responsibility of protecting lives of Nigerians. Same week, more than 17 persons were confirmed dead while many others injured after militia herdsmen attacked Tse-Ayeli village, Tse-Gborigyo and Udam in Mbayer-Yandev in Guma Local Government Area of the State. Recall that on March 20, 2021, the governor narrowly escaped death when militia herdsmen launched an attack on his convoy while returning from his farm at Tyo-mu along Makurdi – Gboko road. Efforts by DAILY POST correspondent to speak with Terver Akase, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor on the recent influx of the Fulani herders in some parts of the state proved abortive as he was unable to take his calls and could not respond to text messages forwarded to him. Similarly, when contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Catherine Anene Sewuese was unable to speak, but requested that a text message be sent to her. She did not, however, respond to the text message forwarded to her. However, Ortom had a few days ago, told residents of the state to defend themselves with Dane guns and other weapons not prohibited by the law, when attacked by gunmen. Ortom gave the directive at an inter-denominational church service held at the government house in Makurdi, Benue capital on Sunday, May 23. “I will no longer announce the deaths of those killed by Fulani herdsmen, rise and defend yourselves with weapons not prohibited by law, bows and arrows, spears and knives. “Get a licence for Dane guns from local government chairmen and use them to defend yourselves. “God assured me some time back that as long as I lived within the circle of his presence, no weapon fashioned against me shall prosper,” he said.

  13. Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has described the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), as a national mishap. Fayose who said this while lamenting the insecurity in the country said Buhari is the “Jonah in our boat.” He, however, urged Nigerians to endure the situation till 2023 when the next general elections will hold. “Nothing is wrong with Nigeria as a country and Nigerians as a people. Buhari is the national mishap and the Jonah in our boat.” “This insecurity is one too many and painfully, Nigerians will have to endure till 2023. I pray God keeps us till then,” he said on Twitter.
  14. The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) on Sunday said the North can no longer continue to coexist with people of Igbo extraction in Nigeria. CNG said the assassination of Ahmed Gulak, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan in Imo State, was an indication that the North can no longer coexist with southeasterners in Nigeria. Spokesman of CNG, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, said Gulak’s assassination is a wider plan by the people of Igbo extraction to replicate the ugly events of 1966. In a statement by Suleiman, CNG claimed that people of the Southeast are funding “gangs” like the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security Network (ESN) to cause havoc. CNG said it is no longer in doubt that the “violent rascality by the IPOB, the ESN and other assortments of armed Igbo gangs is funded, fully supported and emboldened by every component of the Igbo society at home and in the Diaspora.” It added that: “The CNG considers it an insult to our collective sensibilities and ordinary rules of decency to expect other parts of the country, particularly the North, to continue to coexist as one country with the Igbo as federating partners. “The coordinated incessant attacks on police formations in Imo, Ebonyi, Aba, Ibadan, Enugu, Anambra and most recently the police headquarters in Kwara and Sunday’s cold blooded assassination of Ahmed Gulak, a prominent northern leader, are part of a wider plan by the Igbo to replicate the ugly events of 1966 and the more reason why we cannot be reasonably expected to live with them as a nation any longer.” Suleiman also reiterated its rejection of the just concluded public hearing on constitution review organized by the Senate, stressing that it came at the wrong time and with the wrong motive. He said the constitution review was just another exercise in futility with the sole motive of diverting the huge public funds allocated for it as with all previous attempts. “It is equally insensitive for the Senate to come up with such dubious exercise at a time the whole of the northern region is literally abandoned at the mercy of a rampaging insurgency and sundry security issues designed to continuously weaken the region politically and pauperize it economically,” he said.
  15. -China is set to play a big role in helping Nigeria solve insecurity - This follows the decision of the federal government to partner with the country - Meanwhile, Mohammad Maigari Dingyadi, assured the Chinese that the government is doing everything possible to make life easy of Nigerians The federal government of Nigeria has reached out to China over the insecurity situation in the country. According to the minister of police Affairs, Mohammad Maigari Dingyadi, Nigeria is ready to partner with China to enhance the security of the country. He stated this during a courtesy visit by the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, His Excellency, Cui Jianchun to the Ministry Headquarters in Abuja. In a statement made available to Legit.ng, the minister said as a result of Nigeria's security situation, there is a need to work with the Asian country. The minister said with the support of international communities, Nigeria should be able to solve these problems. Meanwhile, the minister lamented the poverty and unemployment situation facing the country. He said the FG is doing everything to solve them. According to him, the government has initiated several initiatives for the youths to create opportunities for youths.
  16. A fresh attack has been carried out by gunmen on a security formation in Rivers State and five soldiers have been reported killed. The gunmen on Monday morning attacked the camp at Abua, in Abua/Odual Local Government Area, killing the officers. Although the six Division of the Nigerian Army in Port Harcourt is yet to release an official statement, two top security personnel in Rivers State confirmed the attack and killings to Channels Television. Meanwhile, all heads of security agencies in Rivers State are currently at a meeting at the headquarters of the Rivers State Police Command, ostensibly to re-strategise ahead of the new scale of insecurity in the state. This attack comes barely 24 hours after gunmen killed some police and customs officers at their patrol base in Isiokpo, the Headquarters of Ikwerre Local Government, which is along the Port Harcourt-Owerri road. While the Police are yet to reveal the casualty figure for Saturday night’s attack in Isiokpo, the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) had said three of its personnel were killed by the gunmen. The spokesperson for Zone C, Custom’s Federal Operations Unit, Mr Jerry Atta, told Channels Television on Sunday that the gunmen also went away with an AK-47 rifle and two Toyota Hilux vans belonging to the service. He said a thorough investigation would be carried out to unravel the circumstances that led to the attack and to unravel the motive of the assailants. Atta blamed the killing of the security operatives on armed smugglers whose businesses have been frustrated by the customs in recent times. https://www.channelstv.com/2021/04/26/another-security-formation-attacked-in-rivers-soldiers-feared-killed/

  18. Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has expressed that no group or ideology can defeat God’s plan’s for Nigeria. He stated this on Sunday at the ongoing 108th annual convention of the Nigerian Baptist Convention (NBC). The convention has as its theme: “Moving Forward: Finishing the Race with Joy.” In a statement by Laolu Akande, his spokesperson, Osinbajo stated that the country’s security challenges are a path to peace and prosperity. He added that from God’s promises concerning Nigeria, the country is set to become a haven of economic and scientific excellence. “There is a promise of God for this nation; that this nation will prosper; that this nation will be the epicentre of the astounding economic and scientific developments of the 21st century; that we will create here in Nigeria an oasis of peace, security, and prosperity such as has never been seen before on this continent and beyond,” the vice-president said. “This is the promise of God. But today the clouds are overcast. The promise seems impossible, as it was with the children of Israel after leaving Egypt on the way to the promised land. The journey to the promise of God for Nigeria is going through storms and adversity, but the end will be better than the beginning; weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning. “I am completely convinced that nobody, no group, no ideology, can defeat the promise of God for the greatness of Nigeria. I see it clearly; I know it like my own face.”
