News In Brief Today 5/1/17

Well done...This is a brief News run down for Thursday!.

I am wondering why no one reads the News but will quickly open any other post to comment...why?READ THE NEWS!

- Nigeria’s former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has taken on a paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Ogun State‎, Oba Alaiyeluwa S. K. Adetona, over his autobiography, titled “Awujale- The Autobiography of Alaiyeluwa Oba S. K. Adetona, Ogbagba II ” where he accused Obasanjo of using the EFCC to blackmail and extort money from people. Obasanjo, reacting in a letter, declared that the Oba’s publication was a tissue of lies, stating that the type of hate propaganda the Oba tried to project in a section of his book against him was grossly unbecoming of an Oba, let alone an Oba of his status.

- The Presidency on Wednesday disagreed with the claim of Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, that the N5, 000 payment to poor Nigerians has not commenced in his state and that report of payment was politically motivated. But reacting in a chat with State House correspondents at the end of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina, said the administration was built on integrity and accountability and will not claim to do what it was not doing. It urged Nigerians to disregard Fayose’s claim and believe whatever the government says.

- Relatively, the Ekiti State House of Assembly (EKHA), has said those fighting for the removal of Governor Ayodele Fayose were chasing mere shadows. Speaker of the House, Kola Oluwawole, made this assertion on Wednesday in Ekiti, in reaction to calls by Coalition for Good Governance and Anti-Corruption that Fayose be removed from office.

- Report says an accidental discharge from the gun of a security operative attached to the Presidential Villa injured a woman on Wednesday as the officer was trying to empty the gun so he could submit it at a security checkpoint. The officer was also injured. The woman has since been taken to the hospital and is in a stable condition.

- Five persons have been reportedly killed in Okpala Ogene, Edumoga in Okpokwu LGA of Benue State after Fulani herdsmen clashed with community members. Report says the people attempted to chase the herdsmen and their cows from their farmland when the armed fulanis opened fire on them, killing five and injuring many.

- Some policemen on Wednesday, raided a house in Maitama area of Abuja, allegedly owned by former First Lady, Patience Jonathan. According to report, the house was acquired by the former First Lady for her younger brother. Nobody was seen in the building when the officers invaded the house at around 5pm yesterday. They, however, searched the building before leaving.

- The Nigerian Army on Wednesday stated that it does not know the whereabouts of the leader of the Boko Haram insurgents, Abubakar Shekau, but boasted that it has won the war against the terrorist group in the North East. Addressing a press conference in Maiduguri, the head of the nation’s counterinsurgency operation (Operation Lafiya Dole), Major General Lucky Irabor said the claim that Shekau has relocated to somewhere in Kala-Balge, in Borno North is a rumour and cannot be substantiated by the military.

- Relatively, the Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Leo Irabor on Wednesday, paraded ten Boko Haram suspects, who were said to have surrendered and handed themselves to the Nigerian military. The General said, the suspects, have undergone deradicalization process. General Irabor also confirmed the arrest of a local government chairman involved in harbouring top Boko Haram commanders.

-. It has been confirmed that the 10,000 successful applicants into the Nigeria Police Force have since December 31, 2016, commenced their trainings in various police colleges and training schools across the country. Mr Ikechukwu Ani, Public Relations Officer, Police Service Commission, PSC, confirmed the development yesterday, in Abuja.

Former President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Anthony Cardinal Okojie, has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s silence over the ongoing Southern Kaduna crisis was very dangerous, even as he likened the development to the silence of Goodluck Jonathan in the wake of Boko Haram insurgency.

  1. Why raiding someone's resident in the absence of the person? How i wished it was buhari that got hit by that bullet cos am so tired of his stupid policies that has cost this country alot. Successful applicants my foot. Was there anything like text or screening? Police should say successful selection of their preferred candidates not applicants. Evil people. God go judge una.

  2. We have won the war against insurgency yet you dont know where the leader is? Did america ever say they won the war till bin laden was killed?
    Its common knowledge that its better to cut the head so the body will scatter cos that shekau can and will still gather another group of people to continue the insurgency. No financier was caught either or bombs are manufactured with saliva?

    1. God bless you for this statement. The soldiers brought out a flag and one Quran claiming its for shekau hence their defeat against the sect. Don't they see that when the BH boys are moving in their convoys, their flag is always there... Even America can't say they have won the war against terrorism. They are just extra cautious to prevent massive attack

  3. Is it through that Gambia's president elect is dead?

  4. Lolzz who were the successful applicants?? Ayo Fayose should really be put in his place, I dont understand this country..A governor who should be mature enough to handle issues never hesitates to behave like a baby..Hmm Nigeria Army una never win the war oh, Its too early to proclaim victory over an on-going war?? Thank God that woman no die oh..I don tire for media trials, all people accuse of corruption, can they be prosecuted and handed over their jail sentences so we can move forward already??!!

  5. I stand with Fayose. He is a gov and he would know if the have started dispensing cash. This is just formality, this administration won't pay shishi. They are the greatest scammers that ever liveth.
    Even channels TV is conducting a poll to know if pple have started receiving cash.
    This govt that loves media publicity can't even show off on NTA while giving out 5k... Abeg spare me the gospel

  6. I fey read your news lone up. Many read, but no motivation to comment.

    This Fulani herdsmen killing people anyhow is very troublesome . The government is mute about it, thère are not many crying out aloud and enough to draw attention. It's going to be a monster that will be difficult to contain tomorrow.
    And who is arming these herdsmen?

  7. Something should be done about this killer herdsmen. The way they go about killing Christians in southern Kaduna is horrendous. And that none of them have been arrested is alarming. Infact, El-Rufai disappoint me and many other people in the way and manner he's handling the killings in southern Kaduna. Buhari who is the patron of this killer herdsmen should call them to order please.....WTF

  8. And on the 5000 Naira to the poor. I believe Fayose, because the Niger state Governor too said he's not aware of any one being given any money. Will they be given poor people in a state money and the state government wouldn't be aware at all.....I believe something is wrong with this government, they just don't plan before taking any step . incompetent clueless mofos
