Pastor arrested in Rivers for killing 3 church members

A pastor in Afam, Rivers State, has been arrested  in connection with the murder of three persons – two women and a nine-month-old girl, all members of his church.

Mr. Cyril Okoro, the state deputy commissioner of police disclosed the arrest  in Port Harcourt on Friday at a press briefing.  Okoro spoke on behalf of the commissioner, Zaki Ahmed.

The police alleged that the pastor (name withheld) murdered the three persons on Dec 13, 2017.

The victims were identified as Mrs Ada Ezeawa, Uluoma Onweagbo and her nine-month old baby, Christabel Joseph.

“The pastor in a most bizarre manner gruesomely murdered three of his own flock, including an unborn child,”Okoro said.

According to him, the pastor had a sexual  relationship  with 25 year-old Onweagbo, which resulted into a pregnancy.

On Dec 11, 2017,  Ada Ezeawa and Onweagbo, along with  her baby  strapped to her back, set out to confront  the pastor over the pregnancy.

DCP Okoro said the pastor ingeniously separated his accusers,  by luring Ada Ezeawa to an uncompleted building, while he told Onweagbo  to stay three “poles” away.

According to Okoro, the pastor  strangled Ezeawa in the uncompleted building

Moments after,  the suspect  rejoined Onweagbo and left with her and the baby on a tricycle (keke) to Afam Roundabout. From the roundabout, they took a motorbike to an isolated bush on Igberu Road.

According to  Okoro, the pastor murdered his second victim in the isolated bush, using the wrapper with which she strapped her baby to the back to suffocate her.

“The baby was equally discovered dead.

“This murder by the suspect is premeditated, callous and devoid of human sympathy,” he said

Atiku speaks on snake swallowing N36m in JAMB office, Buhari’s corruption war

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to reports that a strange snake swallowed N36m from vaults in Makurdi office of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, and corruption level in the country.

Atiku, who spoke during the Silverbird Man of the Year award, said, Nigerians must kill such snake in order to eradicate poverty in the nation.

He said, “We have to kill the snake of corruption that swallows the commonwealth that should lift our people up from poverty.

“Whether that snake is in a JAMB Office or any other government office, we must kill it or it will kill us.

“Nigeria needs to be restructured. We must embrace restructuring as something that must be done to fix Nigeria’s broken systems and not just a campaign gimmick that we fish out of our magic hats and deny after we have gotten what we want.

“We cannot spend 70% of our budget on recurrent expenditure at a time Nigeria has more unemployed or underemployed people than the entire population of the Republic of Cameroon.

“When I was in government, we reduced recurrent expenditure by introducing the monetization Policy and by privatizing many government enterprises.

“Today, those policies have been abandoned and recurrent expenditures have ballooned.

“Nigeria needs to be restructured. We must embrace restructuring as something that must be done to fix Nigeria’s broken systems and not just a campaign gimmick that we fish out of our magic hats and deny after we have gotten what we want.”

Speaking on the recent report by Transparency International, which Nigeria ranked higher than in 2015 in terms of corruption, Atiku called on government to go beyond sentiments and be factual.

“We talk of fighting corruption, but let us move beyond sentiments and media trials and look at the facts.

“We must try to identify why, though we have been ostensibly fighting corruption for the past few years, Transparency International is scoring Nigeria even lower than in 2014,” Atiku added

Military blows hot over Amnesty International’s report on Boko Haram, IPOB, homosexuality

Nigeria’s Defence Headquarters has described the latest report released by Amnesty International (AI), alleging human rights violations by the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN), as a gross disservice to the nation’s high security command.

It accused AI of working towards weakening the efforts of the AFN at ensuring peace and security in the country.

Brigadier General, John Agim, Brigadier General, Acting Director Defence Information, in a statement on Friday, observed that AI has made it a routine duty to continue generating tension among the citizens by releasing unconfirmed reports, unsubstantiated claims and figures relating to military counter-insurgency operations and wanton killings by unknown groups or persons.

The statement in full: “It is pertinent to re-iterate that the AFN as a responsible institution, financed by taxpayers, is bound to respond to these allegations in order to put the records in proper perspective.

The AI allegations of human rights violations and extra judicial killing of civilians by the AFN have followed a specific trend for some time now. It could be noted that the organization’s allegations made against the AFN since 2011 to date are largely unsubstantiated.

The figures released by the organization showed that 4,900 Boko Haram detainees were held in Giwa Barracks in an overcrowded facility where 340 detainees had already died of diseases and dehydration.

“They further stated that 164 civilians were killed by the Nigerian Air Force when an IDP camp was hit at Rann by a Nigerian Air Force fighter Jet and also that 12 IPOB members were kill in Umuahia by the AFN.

Unfortunately, AI have failed to acknowledge the on-going fair trial and conviction of culpable members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect and the release of those not found guilty.

The number of persons released and re-integrated with the larger community is over 500. Both the convicted and freed suspects were earlier arrested from different locations across the country and taken to Kainji, a place that is relatively safer with enough space to accommodate them while providing the detainees with 3 square meals daily.

The suspects were also given proper medical attention by military medical team attached to the detention facility. It is notable that the arrested Boko Haram members from the ongoing OPERATION LAFIYA DOLE were being tried by the Federal High Court at Wawa Cantonment Kainji since Friday 16 February 2018 convicting 205 detainees to various jail

Other sins of the Nigerian Government as captured by the AI in its report include infringing the rights of lesbians, gays, bi-sexuals and transgender as well as intersex persons.

These AI championed rights have been strictly outlawed by Laws of the Federation of Nigeria subsuming the Nigerian constitution as well as the cultural practices of our people. This position of AI, clearly show slack of respect for the constitution of Nigeria which these laws have become part. Let it be known that the Nigerian Government and its people are not ready and would never be, even in future, to please AI or anyone with the introduction of such things.

However, if AI feels strongly against the position of the Nigerian people on this issue and wants to assist the ‘victims’, they could issue these class of people with green cards to enable them re-locate to other places across the world that accept such practices as it may not be necessary for them to remain Nigerians.

Generally, the authenticity and sources of figures generated by AI are worrisome. Regrettably, the military high commands were never contacted for clarification or guidance. The Defence Headquarters on its own made concerted efforts to meet with the country management of AI to discuss related issues without success, as they had consistently failed to show up. This reaction of AI connotes that the body in Nigeria could had been sponsored to frustrate conflict resolution efforts towards peace and positive development of the nation.

The deliberate falsehood peddled by AI could cast the nation and its security apparatus in bad light. Meanwhile, AI does not seem to see anything wrong about the insurgents’ activities and known criminals until security agencies rise to the occasion of effectively containing their actions.

It could be noted that anytime the AFN has reasonable assurances of getting military hardware and or expendables to further its operations or are recording remarkable successes, the AI as an organization would come forward with falsehood to weep up anti-Nigerian sentiments within the international community. These are evident in the AI reports from 2011 to date.

Such reports had made in roads to the US congress a couple of years back leading to the invocation of Leahy Law against Nigeria at the peak of the Boko Haram insurgency. The current report could have been ill-conceived to frustrate the on-going US-Nigerian anti-terrorism cooperation. It could then be posited that the aim of AI in Nigeria is to cripple the country’s security apparatus through cheap blackmail in order to hold back necessary collaboration.

The AFN has both constitutional and moral responsibility to protect Nigerian Citizens and cannot suddenly engage in mass murder as portrayed by AI. The AI reports are at variance with and do not reconcile the information we are collecting from the field on daily basis making these sources suspect.

This is to inform the Nigerian public and the International Community that the AFN exhibit professionalism in its operations. Therefore, it is not proper an organization in the class of AI to incite the Nigerian public and the international community against them. Currently, the AFN is bringing sanity to security challenges in the North East and other parts of country.

The Nigerian Military does not in any way condone indiscipline or breach of set regulations, let alone want on killing of citizens or destruction of property. It is worthy to note that, the AFN regularly collaborate with the International Committee of Red Cross on training of personnel on laws of armed conflict and International humanitarian law. Troops of the AFN are guided by Rules of engagement and Standing Operational Procedures which are explicit on how to conduct operations.

It is also worthy to note that, since 2015 the military high command have introduced training of troops in Human Rights and Laws of Armed Conflict. These are compulsory courses in all AFN institutions which are yielding with positive results. The AI is therefore requested to liaise with the Defence Headquarters for clarification on any matter regarding military operations before putting up inaccurate reports.

Such reports are also capable of hurting the reputation of AI itself which would not be the best for the society in terms of accountability. The Nigerian public and international community are hereby requested to disregard the current Amnesty report, keep faith and confidence in the AFN.”

UN: Donors raised $940 million in 2017 to tackle Boko Haram humanitarian crisis


In response to cases of humanitarian crisis in Nigeria’s North Eastern region which had been ravaged by Boko Haram insurgency, international donors mobilised about $940 million in 2017, the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) disclosed yesterday.
OCHA stated that the fund which was raised at a conference in Oslo, Norway, was a little below the target of $1.05 billion expected and that it was actually meant to address the humanitarian needs in the North-east for 2017.
Speaking at an event organised by the Civil Society Network for Lake Chad Region in Abuja, the Humanitarian Financing Advisor, UN OCHA, Alta Bell, stated that the international organisation was also intervening in other countries, but emphasised that in Nigeria the office conducted a needs assessment for states in the North-East and figured out that $1.05 billion was needed for humanitarian response in the region.
“With respect to Nigeria in the year 2017, there was a humanitarian response plan that was developed and it was done in partnership with all partners. We looked at the needs, we did the needs overview of the different states in the North-East and we came up with a plan to respond to the very significant needs which actually amounted to $1.05bn. This is extremely large requirement.
“However, as a result of conferences like Oslo and awareness campaigns, funds were raised. Through Oslo, the actual response in terms of contributions was extremely generous. With more than $740m raised and mobilised to respond to needs, and even outside of that another $200m which was also for humanitarian needs. That is unprecedented,” Bell said.
She commend the network of CSOs at the event, saying, “So thanks to all of your voices, the influence that you’ve had with the government, with the donors and at this Oslo conference that really kick-started the response and led to a massive scale-up in response.”
According to her, the UN OCHA was able to in 2017 reach out to 5.1 million people in the affected region, adding that more humanitarian workers will be employed, going forward.
She stated: “In 2017, we were looking at a target of 6.9 million people and we were able to assist 5.1 million people, together with all of our partners. And this is also an impressive achievement which could not have been done without the support of local partners.
“Certainly, we are now looking at something like 3,000 humanitarian workers, most of whom are local, whether local NGOs or staff working with the international NGOs in the UN because they are the frontline responders.”
She said an additional $1.05 billion will be needed for humanitarian needs in 2018, adding that her office had started working with international financial institutions in order to meet the needs of more people in the North-East.
Bell noted that: “In this year 2018, we are actually looking at another $1.05 billion that is going to be required to respond. Certainly in order to respond well we need to maintain the momentum that was achieved last year and we also recognise the need for strengthening our partnership with local NGOs and with the civil society.
“I will like to say that with respect to this year, we are also working very closely with our development partners and different banks, including the World Bank, because we really want to work towards more stabilisation and more legitimacy in the different areas where there have been some sort of high levels of conflict.”

Nigeria Army denied Amnesty International’s, says It’s calculated to weaken the military

 

 

DHQ: Amnesty International’s report calculated to weaken Nigerian military

 

The Nigerian Defence Headquarters (DHQ) yesterday said the recent report released by Amnesty International (AI) on human rights abuse committed by the Nigerian military was a calculated attempt to weaken the Nigerian Armed Forces.
Director of Defence Information, Brig Gen John Agim, explained that the report was peddled with falsehood and intention to cause disaffection.
Agim said: “The recent report released by Amnesty International (AI) on 22 February 2018 alleging human rights violations by the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN), is a gross disservice to the nation’s high security command.
“The action of AI seems to be geared towards weakening the efforts of the AFN at ensuring peace and security in the country.
“It has been observed that AI has made it a routine duty to continue generating tension among the citizens by releasing unconfirmed reports, unsubstantiated claims and figures relating to military counter-insurgency operations and wanton killings by unknown groups or persons.

Nig. govt and Buhari’s DSS fake Okwudili, show your face and stop hiding because you don’t exist – IPOB

The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under Mazi Okwudili Ezenachukwu have warned other pro-Biafra groups against taking actions inimical to ‎the Biafra struggle.

This came at a time the IPOB under Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is engaging in war of words with Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, with the former reacting angrily after Gov. Ikpeazu said its leader lies a lot.

However, the IPOB faction in a statement made available to DAILY POST, Thursday, said it was warning those claiming to be followers of the disappeared Mazi Nnamdi Kanu “to stop adhering and introducing inconsequential propagandas that are dangerous and meaningless to the holistic struggle for Biafra restoration.”

IPOB has been facing leadership crisis since last year culminating in Kanu being sacked by another faction last year.

In a statement signed by Comrade Peter Bassy, its Director of Media and Publicity, he said‎ “pro-Biafra groups, irrespective of there status must be talking about unity of purposes and oneness in pursuit of our dream of Biafra restoration.

“The era of brandishing self titles, self glorification, selfishness and self superiority which brings self destruction has gone.

“Leadership of pro Biafra groups must come together now for the interest of Biafra.”

He added that “the journey for Biafra restoration is not only the duty of pro Biafra groups. Political, religious, traditional and opinion leaders of Eastern region, mostly the Igbos have their own roles to play even the governors.

“IPOB will no longer continue to insult Igbo leaders in public; it makes Hausa Fulani people to be happy and more comfortable in discrediting Ndigbo, it also create a very huge gap between the pro Biafra groups and Igbo leaders.

“We wish to clarify that IPOB will no longer insult or use hate speeches against leaders; we wish to revive our former glories which everybody appreciated.

“We cannot continue to recoil on ideas and methodologies that endanger the lives and properties of our people.

“We also wish to state that we don’t have problem with South-East governors, including Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state.

“Gov ikpeazu was never consulted after the former and disappeared leader was released from detention, irrespective of advice given to him. Ikpeazu respected Kanu’s father even when there was pressure to dethrone him, and resisted pressure to re-arrest Nnamdi Kanu.”

The group, however, urged ‎the South-East governors “to review our proscription as the new leadership under our supreme leader, Mazi okwudili Ezenachukwu is ready to partner with them and salvage all those things destroyed by the former leader Nnamdi Kanu.

“We disassociate ourselves from the earlier statement credited to IPOB through Emma Powerful, who is speaking for the disappeared ex-leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

“Members of IPOB have realised that creating problems and disaffection through media propagandas will not give us Biafra; much exhibition of propagandas will diminish our status and make IPOB a dishonourable organization.”

I’m Waiting On Nigerians To Decide 2019 Move – Buhari

Court affirms Henry Okah’s prison sentence


South Africa’s top court on Friday reinstated a 24 year prison sentence for Henry Okah convicted of a series of terror attacks in Nigeria eight years ago.
Okah was jailed in 2013 for masterminding a number of attacks, including twin bombings which killed 12 people in the Nigerian capital Abuja during independence day celebrations in 2010.
Okah’s appeal was first heard by the Supreme Court of Appeal in 2014, which overturned four of his 13 terror convictions and reduced his sentence to 20 years, but the Constitutional Court in Johannesburg overruled the decision.
“The appeal against his entire conviction… is dismissed,” the Constitutional Court said in its ruling.
“The convictions overturned in the Supreme Court of Appeal must be reinstated together with the sentences the High Court imposed.”
Okah had repeatedly denied any involvement in the blasts.
Lawyers for Okah, who has been a permanent resident of South Africa since 2007, had argued it was outside the country’s legal jurisdiction to put him on trial.
“He was not extradited to Nigeria because, had he stood trial there, he would have faced the death penalty,” said the Constitutional Court in its judgement.
Okah, who was also convicted over two other explosions in 2010 in the southern Nigerian city of Warri, a hub of the oil-rich delta region, was the presumed leader of the Nigerian militant group Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta.
MEND said it was fighting for a fair share of oil revenue for residents of the Niger Delta.
The group has seen spin-offs by radicals who want independence for the region.
A high court Abuja is expected to hand down a ruling on March 7 in the trial of Okah’s brother Charles for his alleged involvement in the 2010 independence day bombings.

US to open Jerusalem embassy ‘in May 2018’


Trump administration officials say the new US embassy in Jerusalem will open in May 2018, to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Israel’s declaration of independence.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, the Trump administration officials told the Associated Press news agency that Congress will be notified of the move on Friday.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is reportedly being planned for mid-May.
If confirmed, the announcement means the move would come much faster than expected. US Vice-President Mike Pence in late January said the controversial embassy would open in 2019.
The US decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem prompted angry protests in Palestine and solidarity rallies across the world.
For Palestinians, May 15 marks Nakba Day, when they commemorate the mass displacement of Palestinians to make way for the state of Israel known as the “catastrophe”.
Between 1947 and 1949, at least 750,000 Palestinians from a 1.9 million population were expelled from or fled their homes in Palestine.
Israel Katz, Israeli intelligence minister, thanked Trump for the announcement.
“There is no greater gift than that! The most just and correct move. Thanks friend!” Katz said in a tweet.
Israel proclaimed its independence on May 14, 1948.
Al Jazeera correspondent Rosiland Jordan said that it is still unclear where the new embassy will reside.
“I am told that the ambassador David Friedman as well as a few aides will take up their assignment in the current consulate general building in the Arnona neighbourhood in Jerusalem.
“The additional staff will be transferred from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem over time, but there’s also still the outstanding matter of trying to find a location to build a permanent embassy.”

Double bombing rocks Somalia’s Mogadishu


A double suicide car bomb blast followed by gunfire has been heard in Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, according to police.
A loud explosion reportedly took place on Friday, followed by a second blast and sustained gunfire which broke out near the president’s residence.
At least 18 people have been killed, the Aamin Ambulance service said.
It is not immediately clear who was behind the attack.
“We understand it is a suicide car bomb near the presidential palace area,” Major Mohamed Ahmed, a police officer, told Reuters news agency.
“Then another blast followed, with gunfire. It is too early to know details and target.”
The suspected attacks come a day after the Somali government had issued a “terror warning” in Mogadishu.

Buhari protecting corrupt people in his govt – Fayose


Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has described the new report by Transparency International (TI) revealing that the perception of corruption in Nigeria worsened between 2016 and 2017, as another vindication of his position that the All Progressives Congress (APC) government of President Muhammadu Buhari was not fighting any corruption.
He said; “Transparency International only confirmed what I have said before that President Buhari is only hiding under anti-corruption fight to harass his perceived political foes while protecting corrupt people in his government.”
The governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has expressed concern over the reported abduction of 94 pupils of the Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, appealing to the federal government to ensure that the remaining girls are found and stop lying to Nigerians that the Boko Haram insurgency had been “completely defeated.”
In a statement issued in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said it was painful that despite the earlier claim by the federal government that Boko Haram was “technically defeated” and the latest one that the insurgency was “completely defeated”, 94 students could be abducted in Yobe State in just one day.
He said; “My heart goes to those 46 students that are yet to be found and I urge the federal government as well as the Yobe State government to do all within their powers to bring the students back to their families.
“Most importantly, the federal government should stop lying concerning the fight against Boko Haram insurgents because it has now become the tradition that whenever the government boasts of defeating the insurgents, greater havoc is wrecked on the country.”
On the Transparency International annual Corruption Perception Index, which ranked Nigeria 148 out of 180 countries assessed in 2017, showing deterioration in the perception of corruption in public administration in Nigeria compared to 2016, Governor Fayose said: “Transparency International has placed a question mark on the President’s claim to integrity.”
“Fact is that President Buhari is presiding over the worse form of corruption in the history of Nigeria and the good thing is that despite their propaganda, they have not been able to hide the rot in their government from the eagle eyes of international organisations like the Transparency International.
“In the last few months, Nigerians have been confronted with messy revelations like the fraudulent reinstatement of Abdullahi Maina, alleged award of $25 billion contracts without following due process, Attorney-General of the Federation’s declaration that the EFCC lacked evidence to prove its allegations of sharp practices against prominent players in the Malabu Oil deal, alleged re-looting of exotic properties recovered from alleged looters of Pension Funds, among others.
“Even the Acting Chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, was indicted by the DSS indictment for corruption.
“Therefore, the reality as revealed by the Transparency International is that the federal government under President Buhari is using APC broom to sweep corruption involving top functionaries of the government under the carpet while setting lion after opposition figure even on mere rumour of corruption.”

How I Became An Ordained Minister – Zach Orji

Veteran Nollywood actor, Zach Orji has narrated how he became an ordained minister preaching the gospel of Christ all over the world.
Orji broke into the Nigerian movie industry at its nascent stage when he featured in
Unforgiven Sin in 1991.
The actor, who has been spotted preaching in Abuja and some north central states, said he decided to accept the call after God moved his bishop to ordain him.
The graduate of University of Nigeria, Nsukka said he has not looked back since his ordination, saying he cherishes any opportunity to bring people closer to God.
In a recent interview as reported by NaijaGist , Orji said: “I’m also an ordained reverend, a pastor so I get invitations to minister in churches both within and outside Nigeria. I didn’t set out to be an ordained reverend. My bishop probably got inspired by God to ordain me. I worship with Power Line Bible Church under bishop Lawrence Osagie, and he ordained me in 2012. So when the offer came from my bishop to ordain me, I didn’t reject it. I took it whole heartedly and I get excited when I have opportunity to speak to people, inspire them and draw them closer to God.”
