Nigerians are obviously not happy with Saraki going by
the responses posted by his followers on facebook.
Saraki had earlier posted;
Saraki : I’m Happy that the Trial Has Commenced
Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has said
he is glad that his trial before the Code of Conduct
Tribunal on asset declaration in 2003 has finally
commenced.
Saraki said the proceedings of today has given him
confidence that if the trial is conducted fairly he would
be vindicated.
The Senate President noted that even though the
prosecution tried to bring in some dramatic narratives,
it was clear that they were merely thrashing around and
hoping to titillate the public with salacious tales. He
added that he was hopeful however that when the time
comes, his lawyers will have the opportunity to present
his case.
Signed
Yusuph Olaniyonu
Special Adviser to Senate President on Media and
Publicity

OMG! Davido Is Now A Criminal Suspect In NAPTIP Investigation On Child Abduction Case

image

The National Agency for the Prohibition of
Trafficking in Persons has said they have started
investigations into Davido’s Abduction case. While
speaking with a Punch Correspondent who had
called in to know how far the agency had gone, the
Lagos State Zonal Commander of the agency, Mr.
Joseph Famakin, said investigations into the matter
had commenced and both parties have been invited.
However, he noted that, the Agency can only carry
out its duties if the other party involved (the
Adelekes) honour their invitation. His words….
“The case was reported to us on Wednesday and we
have already commenced investigations. That is the
only thing I can say for now. We are known for
doing a diligent job irrespective of who is involved.
“For now, I cannot say anything about the case
because we have just sent out invitations to the
parties involved. I have neither seen nor interviewed
any of them so for now I cannot really say much.
All I can say is that we have commenced a full
scale investigation into the matter after we received
the petition on Wednesday evening.
“It is when we listen to all parties involved that we
would establish if there was a case of human
trafficking or not. There have been no facts
presented to me other than the petition I received.
The people who presented the petition would make
a statement, likewise the other party involved then
we would be able to come to an objective
conclusion. We cannot presuppose.
“I cannot assume what would happen if they refuse
to honour our invitation but when we get to the
bridge, we would cross it. When we start the
investigation, you would be informed but at this
stage, we have just received the petition and we just
commenced,” he said.

Popular police and EFCC informant, Alhaji Gay, murdered (graphic)

image

Alhaji Gay is the number one trending topic in Nigeria
right now. His real name is Razak Adetunji Alaso and
before today, I’d never heard of him but apparently, he’s
popular within ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ circle in Lagos. They say
he was very popular for tracking ‘Yahoo’ boys for the
police and EFCC. Some say he was an EFCC/police
imposter.
He was killed yesterday at Agbado Ijaiye, in Lagos.
People in the know say there have been many attempts
on his life – he’s been stabbed and shot before but he
survived. Guess the people after him succeeded this
time. Sad! May his soul rest in peace, amen. See a
photo of his body after the cut *graphic photo – be
warned*

What does Boko Haram really want?

Many have wrongly assumed, and still continue to
assume, that Boko Haram is about Islam but this is
obviously not the case.

image

Nigerian terrorist group, Boko Haram has succeeded in
making itself the talk of the town, and even the world,
but five years after it began major attacks, it is still not
clear what the sect really wants.
Many have wrongly assumed, and still continue to
assume, that Boko Haram is about Islam but this is
obviously not the case.
Most of the terrorist sect’s attacks are carried out in
the North-East of Nigeria, an area which is largely
populated by Muslims.
Boko Haram’s lack of regard for Islam can be seen
through the fact that the sect also attacks mosques
and prayer processions.
During the 2015 Ramadan fast, a period in which even
the most decadent of Muslims embrace sobriety, Boko
Haram claimed hundreds of lives in attacks specifically
targeted at Islamic institutions.
The only thing Islamic about Boko Haram, is its name,
that’s where the connection stops.
In 2011, when the sect’s attacks escalated and became
more sophisticated, I assumed that it had been hijacked
by enemies of then President Goodluck Jonathan to
make the country ungovernable for him.
Until 2010, Boko Haram was largely a group of
miscreants who seemed to truly believe that “Western
education is forbidden” as the sect’s name implies.
The only mention of the group before that time was of
young idle men armed with machetes and knives and
doing no real damage. Fast-forward a few years and we
have a mighty battalion armed with suicide bombers,
AK47s and armoured tanks.
My theory was that somebody wanted to make a
statement and didn’t want to create a new group
because that would be too obvious.
Instead, they decided to take a stray cat and make it a
genetically modified lion. They decided to take Boko
Haram and make it the terrorist monstrosity that it has
become today.
My theory at the time was that powerful Northerners
were behind the hijacking because Jonathan had
hijacked the Presidency despite the fact that it had
been zoned to the North.
The fact that the attacks were concentrated in the
North seemed to buttress my theory because it made
Jonathan seem like he was uninterested in that part of
the country which is one of the major reasons why he
lost his re-election bid.
However, my theory has been shot to dust because
Boko Haram has once again intensified its attacks
despite the fact that Nigeria’s new President,
Muhammadu Buhari is a northerner.
So the question now is? What does Boko Haram really
want?
ISIS, with which the Nigerian group has aligned itself,
has made its mission very clear; ISIS wants territory,
which is why it’s taking over communities, ISIS wants
wealth, which is why it’s commandeering oil wells, ISIS
believes in Islamic supremacy, which is why it mostly
kills Christians, infidels and certain groups of Muslims.
Boko Haram has barely moved beyond Borno, Adamawa
and Yobe States and appears to only be using Chad,
Niger and Cameroon as hideouts and escape routes.
Boko Haram doesn’t seem to want territory because
it’s not moving very far, it doesn’t seem to want wealth
because it hasn’t gone anywhere near Nigeria’s oil
wells or its major cities, it obviously doesn’t believe in
Islam because it’s annihilating mostly Muslims.
So what does Boko Haram really want?
A monster that craves meat can be satisfied but a
monster with no desires or demands is a scary monster
indeed.

By Fire, By Force Suspected cultists murder Islamic cleric for refusing to buy them ‘Igbo’

A Muslim cleric has been killed by suspected cultists.

A 25-year-old Islamic cleric, Alfa Rahmon Alabi, has
been reportedly murdered in strange circumstances
» by hoodlums suspected to be cultists » because he
refused to buy Indian Hemp (Igbo), for them.
The incident which happened on Thursday, July 9, at
the Ayobo area of Lagos State, has thrown the
community into a frenzy and apprehension.
It was gathered that the Iseyin, Oyo State indigene,
was on his way to the Mosque to conduct the Tahajjud
(Night Prayer), when the hoodlums accosted him and
requested he bought marijuana for them, but he
refused, saying doing such against his Islamic faith,
abusing them in the process.
The apparently ‘stoned’ hoodlums reportedly became
angry and attacked him and in the process, stabbed
him with knives and bottles after dispossessing him of
his phones and money.
One of Alfa Rahmon’s friends narrated how the ugly
incident happened:
“Alfa was very popular around here and we all loved
him. He had nothing to do with cultism. In fact, he
served as the Muezzin (Islamic faithful who calls for
prayers), and also woke people up with songs every
morning for the Sahur, preparatory to the fasting.
On Thursday night, he said he was going for prayer.
When he got to Kaka Junction, the cult members
stopped him and told him to buy hemp for them.
He refused and said he was on his way to the mosque
for a prayer. He showed them his Quran as a proof.
Then the cultists said if he knew what was good for
him, he would buy the hemp because they were Eiye
members (cultists).
He replied them and said, ‘The Eiye (birds) I know, do
not live with humans, they stay in the forest’. They
became angry that he had the boldness to reply them.
They then collected his phones and stabbed him.”
A community leader, Demola Olota, said four of the six
cult members that perpetrated the crime had been
arrested by the police.

In Adamawa How Yola suicide bombers staged a fight before detonation

Police said the bombers, who had explosives strapped
to their bodies, pretended to be fighting inside the
market, and detonated the bomb after onlookers
gathered around them.

Police said on Friday, June 5, that the two suicide
bombers who killed no fewer than 31 persons and left
38 injured at the populated Jimeta market in Yola
yesterday, faked a fight to draw people closer.
A police spokesman in the zone, Othman Abubakar ,
said the bombers, who had explosives strapped to their
bodies, entered the Jimeta Main Market after sundown
on Thursday and “pretended to be fighting.”
“The staged fight between the two men attracted the
attention of people nearby to see what was happening,”
Abubakar told AFP.
“When people had gathered they detonated their
explosives. They killed a sizeable number of people,” he
added.
It is believed that the dangerous sect, Boko Haram is
behind the attack, as the militants have launched series
of back-to-back attacks in the northern zones since the
inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari on May
29.
The Yola attack came hours after a suspected suicide
bombing at a checkpoint outside a military barracks in
Maiduguri, the capital of neighbouring Borno state that
killed four people.
