|Politics / BREAKING: Fleeing Igangan Killer Herdsmen Relocate To Ogun, Kill Three In Imeko by Divoc(m): 2:13pm On Jun 07|
Three persons have been reportedly killed in Ogun State by herdsmen said to be among those behind killings in Igangan, Oyo State, on Sunday.
The victims were identified by an impeccable source as: Femi Bara, John Taiwo and Tunde Taiwo.
They were said to have been murdered at Amule Kanji village, via Imeko, Imeko/Afon Local Government Area of Ogun State.
DAILY POST learnt that the three men were on a bike, coming from Ologede village when they ran into the killer herdsmen, “who killed them and took away their motorbike.”
The Balogun of Imeko Isale, Chief Ganiu Akinleye, confirmed that the incident happened around 11 pm on Sunday.
Chief Akinloye told DAILY POST that the police had gone to the village to evacuate the corpses.
“You know there was a crisis in Igangan yesterday, those herdsmen who escaped to Imeko through our forest reserves killed three men on Sunday night.
“The victims were riding on a motorcycle, coming from Ologede around 11 o’clock last (Sunday) night. They ran into these fleeing herdsmen, who killed them. They even took the victim’s new motorcycle away, leaving their old one behind,” he said.
“We saw empty AK-47 cartridges at the scene of the incident. A formal report has been made at the police station in Imeko and the police have gone there to take the bodies.
"This is getting too much. We can no longer sleep in our houses. The herdsmen are everywhere. Government should come to our rescue. The Amotekun operatives in Imeko are too few. We need help.”
The Balogun raised the alarm that the Igangan killers had relocated to a village called Sagada in Imeko/Afon.
“Those herdsmen who escaped after killing people in Igangan are now in Ogun State. They camp in a village called Sagada, under Oke Agbede in Ward 2.
“There is a river, (Oyan) in-between Sagada and Igangan. They are there as we speak. We have informed the appropriate authorities, but no positive steps have been taken so far,” the community leader said.
Contacted, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said, “I will find out.”
DAILY POST earlier reported that scores of Igangan residents were gruesomely murdered by suspected herdsmen on Sunday.
|Politics / Constitution Review: Shariah Was In South West Before Christianity – MURIC by Divoc(m): 9:31pm On May 30|
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has asked the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) to “mind its business and stop opposing the Muslims right to operate Shariah.”
MURIC Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, said this in a statement on Sunday.
This followed a warning the PFN issued against the move by any group to introduce Sharia law to the South-West through the ongoing constitutional review being carried out by the Senate.
“PFN and other Christian groups are fully aware that Shariah was in the South West decades before the arrival of Christianity in 1842. Shariah was practiced in Ede under Oba Abibu Olagunju (Habeeb, a Muslim name) and the Ede Shariah Court operated up till 1913 at Agbeni area of the town.
“It was moved to Agbongbon area in 1914. Shariah was applied in Iwo under Oba Momodu Lamuye (Muhammad Lamuye) who died in 1906. Even the seventh Akirun of Ikirun, Oba Aliyu Oyewole (died 1912), instituted Shariah in Ikirun in 1910.
“These are just examples of the existence and spread of Shariah in Yorubaland and the Christian leaders are not oblivious of the fact that it was the British Christian colonialists who stopped Shariah in Yorubaland and imposed Christian common law,” Akintola said.
He added that the PFN and other Christians are equally aware of the rising tide of Islamic awareness in the same South West and that they were only afraid that the sleeping giant is waking up to take back what belongs to it.
He said, “Our Christian neighbours know well that Shariah is the Allah-given fundamental human right of Muslims. But they are determined to deprive us of it using unorthodox methods. They believe they are at war with Muslims and to them, everything is fair in war. They are using both fair and foul means to achieve their objective.
“We call on Nigerians to understand the siege mentality of our Christian neighbours. Like all aggressors, they believe that attack is the best form of defence. As the benefactors and inheritors of colonial rampage that lasted more than a century, they are determined to keep all the loot which their principal bequeathed to them. They are determined to keep the Muslims in a concentration camp into which the colonial masters drove them.
“The Constitution Review Panel asked Nigerians to forward their views regarding what they want in the constitution. Each group is supposed to submit its needs. But instead of telling the panel what the Christians want, PFN has gone ahead to say what they do not want Muslims to ask for. It is an attempt to gag Muslims in the South West and it will not work.”
He said that the claim of religious tolerance in the South-West is a sham and a mantra designed to keep Yoruba Muslims in perpetual slavery.
“Muslims in the region are waking up and asking for freedom. We demand a halt to the forceful use of Christian school uniform, Christian education, Christian law. We demand civil Shariah, not criminal Shariah that involves the cutting of hands but civil Shariah to regulate Muslim marriages, inheritance, family affairs. It has nothing to do with Christians. We will use every peaceful and constitutional means available to attain this objective,” he added.

|Politics / Gulak: We Can No Longer Coexist With Igbos In Nigeria – Northern Coalition by Divoc(m): 9:18pm On May 30|
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

|Politics / Race To Replace Late Army Chief Begins by Divoc(m): 10:42pm On May 23|
The race for the replacement of the late Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, has started 48 hours after his death.
Attahiru and others died in a plane crash involving a Nigerian Air Force aircraft in Kaduna on Friday and were buried on Saturday.
Few hours after the burial, there were insinuations that Maj.-Gen. Danjuma Ali-Keffi, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 1 Division Nigerian Army, Kaduna, had been penned down for the job.
However, checks by Daily Trust showed that Ali-Keffi is not among the most senior military officers in the operation of the Nigerian Army.
Findings reveal that there are more than 30 senior Major Generals who are superior to him.
A source said President Muhammadu Buhari is considering a senior officer from the South-East to correct alleged imbalance in the composition of his security team.
But the source noted that with the increasing agitation and attacks on security agents and formations by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the thinking is that it is too dangerous to give the South-East such a position.
Security experts, who spoke to Daily Trust on Sunday, said Attahiru ought to be replaced as soon as possible in order to sustain the tempo of counter-terrorism in the Northeast and boost the morale of frontline troops.
But a senior officer at Defence headquarters told one of our correspondents that it was too early to be talking about COAS replacement as the nation is still mourning late Attahiru.
Jettison ethnicity, expert tells Buhari
In a telephone interview with Daily Trust on Sunday, a security expert, Kabiru Adamu, also stressed the need for the President to jettison ethnicity, and consider superiority, merit and experience of the officer in the theatre of war before appointing anybody.
He added that it was expedient for the President to prove people who are saying he hates the South-East wrong by appointing someone from the region, this, he said, would quell their agitation.
Adamu said, “Incidentally, the COPP represents a part of Nigeria that has been crying over the last six years that they are not represented within the security architecture, I think it is a good opportunity for this administration to show clearly that he reflects national character in his appointment.
“National character is very important; merit is also absolutely important. Nigeria is very challenged at the moment; some will say we are at war. If we are at war, we need a military leader that can deliver victory to us in the war we are in.
“What are the two major issues the military leader, especially the army should focus. First is terrorism and then banditry. The role of military in these two issues is absolutely important.
“We can also add the third one which is the secessionists’ agitation that have been existing in the South East which are not cropping up in the South West. Now, in all these three issues, the army in particular will play a key role, so, it must be somebody who can deliver all these three things.
“More importantly, he should be able to work with other security agencies to ensure a coordinated effort in handling these 3 issues.”

|Crime / Tears As Victims’ Family Recount Killing Of Four Siblings By SARS In Taraba by Divoc(m): 6:51pm On May 17|
It was a tale of woes as a family of four suspected victims killed by police narrated their ordeal to the judicial panel of inquiry investigating rights abuses in Taraba State.
During the sitting of the panel on Monday, the audience could not hold back tears as they listened to stories on how the youths were brutally killed by the police.
Standing before the Christopher Awubra led panel to testify on behalf of the family of the victims, Kabiru Jubril Abdullahi, said the incident which occurred in February 2014, was caused by the vigilante group.
He said, “a team of vigilante led by one Sani Abdullahi invited our brothers on a telephone to appear before them to discuss and resolve some issues.”
”On sighting them, the vigilante did not only arrested them but beat them before handing them over to the men of the defunct Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) whom he alleged ended up killing them” he narrated.
The suspects, he said “were handed over to SARS, who he said searched the victims’ houses and found nothing incriminating.
Rather than releasing them on bail, the SARS, as claimed by the petitioner went ahead to kill them.
Armed with a picture of the bodies of the four victims, Awubra said their bodies were riddled with bullets as they lay in the pools of their blood when they were brought to the Moslems graveyard in Jalingo metropolis by SARS for burial.
The family who are now demanding compensation of the sum of N800 million, said the killing of the young people who were aged thirteen and eighteen, have ignited negative effects on the entire members of the family.
Saddened by the development, the counsel to the petitioner, Suleiman Sani Dikko, pleaded with the panel to consider the demands of the family.
Citing Section 33 (1) and 36 (5) of the 1999 constitution, he said could not fathom why the police decided to cut short the lives of the suspects without regards to their rights to life as enshrined in the aforementioned sections of the constitution.
He said “the police or SARS don’t have the constitutional right to try any person suspected of committing an offence or even order the execution or killing of any suspect without being properly arraigned before a court of competent.
The family, who are demanding millions of naira in compensation, also pleaded with the Justice Christopher Awubra-led team to ensure that their case is fairly treated and the culprits brought to justice.
