Senator Dino Melaye angrily responds to Festus Keyamo over the latter's comments on Atiku Abubakar while being interviewed by Channels TV's Seun Akinbaloye. In that interview, Festus Keyamo said that Peter Obi is more competent than Atiku Abubakar. This didn't seem to go well with a visibly irked Dino Melaye. who while firing on all cylinders invited Festus Keyamo to a public debate where he promised to "break" and expose him.
It seems Dino wants a repeat of the last episode in channels. Keyamo will burst Dino wide open
Dubaku543: Every small thing this one go begin talk Lagos. The Iragbiji thief would have developed the entire SouthWest that he has held under lock and key so we can take him serious. Tinubu is a tribalist that shouldn't near power!!!
Let me start with you. I challenge you to share your state here and the picture of your state public hospital.
ImmaculateJOE: Wike is over hyping himself because of Rivers State govt money. But truth be told, PDP can't win shit without the support of SE/SS. And as it is now, they are not sure of wining any states in these two zones, not even Delta state. And Wike will be very influential in the zones...
Which one is over hype, atiku only comes to PDP only when the election is coming, wike and fayose worked to keep the party afloat.
Olachase: I laugh some people stupidity in 419 voice All this one's kws Obi can't win, they want to quickly protect their businesses, make campaign time reach na then you go see say igbos way endorsed Tinubu many expecially here in lagos.
That's it, a sane person will ask what Peter obi did for indigbos in lagos
Prof9292: I have watched with utmost surprise and disbelief when I hear things like South south and south east is locked down for Obi. Please I'll love to know how the person seems to know south south and south east is on lockdown. I can't talk much about the east but In Edo and Delta states, I'm not even sure he'll see 10%.
I was born in Delta state and currently contesting election in Edo state. I know the terrain well in Edo. In the 3 senatorial districts in Edo state, the Edo central (Esans) usually vote one way PDP no matter who's contesting. Edo North (Oshiomole area) predominantly Muslims and always goes where oshiomole goes especially now He's on the ballot for senate; expect a 60/40 between APC and PDP here. Edo south (Bini) this is where Obi can manage to get votes and even at that, it would still be difficult. In the 7 LGA in this place, I'm still wondering the LGA Obi is going to win.
Soon they will know what structure is. Labour party don't have candidates for national assembly that can win in different South south states . How then does he think people will drop their brothers contesting for house of reps and senate under APC and PDP for his party .
ArewaNorth: Fear among northerners living in Owerri, the Imo State capital, has heightened following the killing of eight Nigeriens by members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The attack occurred on Monday when the assailants attacked a building at Orogwe, Owerri, occupied by mainly Hausa migrants from Nigeria and the Niger Republic.
The northerners said the building was attacked because IPOB took all of them living in the area to be migrants from the North, not knowing the victims were foreigners.
They told Daily Trust that they have become afraid for their lives due to the frequent attacks on them by IPOB and its security arm affiliate, Eastern Security Network (ESN).
An eyewitness, Abubakar Muhammad, said the gunmen had earlier visited the Hausa community at Orogwe Monday evening where they interacted with the Hausa people in the area.
He said, “When they came that evening, they were not carrying arms. They exchanged pleasantries with people; we didn’t even know they were gunmen. But in the night, they came back shooting our people. They killed seven people on the spot, eight people were wounded, and one additional person died in the hospital. We buried them the following day (Tuesday),” he said.
Muhammad who sells Suya (roast beef) pointed out that most of the people killed were his colleagues and those dealing in cows.
He added that the gunmen had earlier shot at some northern travellers on Sunday.
“They opened fire on the bus when they realised that they were northern travellers; many were wounded while one man also lost his life. A day after that was when they came to attack us at Orogwe. We are now living in fear,” he said.
The Sarkin Hausawa of Imo State, Alhaji Auwal Baba Suleiman, confirmed to Daily Trust that the eight people killed were from the Niger Republic and that six injured persons were discharged from hospital on Wednesday.
“The attack was on the residence where mainly people who occupy the place are from the Niger Republic. They are doing their business here; this (attack) has been happening for some time. We want the government to take some measures,” he said.
The sarki added that the gunmen cut the head of one of the victims and went away with it.
Meanwhile, the Imo State Police Command on Wednesday confirmed that seven people were killed in the attack by the IPOB members.
The police spokesman, CSP Mike Abattam, in a statement said the armed men “suspected to be members of the proscribed IPOB and its arm affiliate ESN came in a black Lexus jeep and three motorcycles carrying two persons each, shooting at the occupants in a building at Orogwe, Owerri West LGA, Imo State.”
He said the building belonged to one Sir Chima Ogbuehi, a resident of Lagos.
He said, “The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) swiftly mobilised his men with the support of a detachment of the command’s tactical teams to the scene, but on arrival, the hoodlums had escaped almost immediately, snatching a blue coloured Toyota Sienna vehicle and the command’s tactical team speedily went on their trail while the DPO and his men rushed the injured ones to Federal Medical Centre, Owerri, and evacuated the corpses to the mortuary.
“Regrettably, a total of seven persons lost their lives in the attack while six others sustained injuries and were rushed to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Owerri, Imo State.
“The Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Ahmed Barde, has ordered for a discreet investigation into the incident, promising that the command will go all out in ensuring that the perpetrators of this dastardly act are arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law.”
The police appealed for calm and enjoined the residents to assist them and other security agencies by giving them credible information and report any clandestine activities observed in their communities to the nearest police station.
The Director-General of the All Progressives Congress, APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu campaign organisation, Adams Oshiomole said he will come after supporters of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party should they come after him.
Oshiomole made this assertion while speaking in an interview on The Morning Show of Arise News on Wednesday.
The former APC national chairman had argued that most of the presidential candidates, who had spoken have not sufficiently, in most cases, addressed how they are going to address the issues that Nigeria is confronted with as a nation.
Oshiomole singled Obi out, saying the Labour Party candidate got away with intriguing several intriguing questions put across to him.
Lol, very legitimate question, "how come they massively disobeyed the ticket in 2019? So non of these obiidients knew the capacity and pedigree of Mr Peter then?
