2019: PDP reacts as Obasanjo accuses Buhari of planning to rig presidential election.

 
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Sunday said the concerns raised by former president Olusegun Obasanjo over President Muhammadu Buhari’s alleged scheme to use the apparatus of state power to subjugate Nigerians, “undermine our democratic system, subvert the electoral process and perpetuate himself in office”, have vindicated its stand that the President is out for a self-succession plot.

PDP said Obasanjo’s submission also reinforced its position that President Buhari, and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), “having realized that there is no way he can win in a free and fair election, is

now besieging all democratic institutions, including the Judiciary, the Legislature, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), while engaging in acts that threaten the unity, peace and corporate existence of our dear nation.”

A statement by PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan read, “The whole world can see how President Buhari and APC’s desperation for power is putting the lives of over 200 million Nigerian citizens at great risk as their actions stoke violence and push our dear nation to the precipice.

“We are however not surprised that the APC, a party that has shown that it is completely anti-people, quickly rose in defence of the Buhari Presidency’s assault on our democratic order. The APC has always been a
deceptive soulless mob that would rather have our nation burn than to be out of power.

“President Obasanjo’s concern is therefore a clarion call to all compatriots, irrespective of ethnic, religious and political affiliations to rise in defence of our democracy.

“He has reinforced the fact that this nation belong to all of us; that our pride as a people lies in our resilience and globally acclaimed ability to rise above and defeat every situation that challenges our nationhood.”

PDP also called on all Nigerians to “be at alert at this critical time to stop President Buhari and the APC on their anti-democratic trails with our votes.

“We should never allow anybody to set our nation on fire just to achieve selfish ambitions. We must eschew all our differences and unite in using our votes to take back our country from this dwindling, incompetent,
ineffectual, corrupt and anti-people administration.

“If we don’t take action with our votes, we would be giving up our nation to totalitarian forces at our own peril and those of generations yet unborn,” it said.

Gunmen have attacked Bare, a community in Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa State, burning down houses and other structures there, including a Catholic seminary.

The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Yola, Stephen Mamza, confirmed the destruction of the Catholic Seminary, complaining that the authorities were late in deploying security personnel.

He said the information he had received indicated that the invaders stormed the community in their hundreds and operated unhindered for several hours.

“Our reverend father’s house was burnt and there’s no house around the area that is standing now. They have burnt all the houses.

“All my parishioners have left. Nobody can live there,” he said.

The bishop added that after a previous attack and people fled, about 50 percent of them had returned and reconstructed their houses.

“The people are now back to square one because their houses have been destroyed completely,” he lamented.

The Adamawa State Police Command admitted that the attackers succeeded in burning down several houses but did not confirm that the Catholic Seminary was among the structures razed.

The spokseman of the Command, Othman Abubakar, said the report before him did not indicate the identities of houses burnt.

Othman, who stressed that there was no human casualty, said: “There was an attack with houses burnt down but there was no loss of lives. But so far we have deployed our men to restore normalcy.”

Another Nigerian tortured to death in South Africa.

• South African police
Nigerians living in South Africa have expressed displeasure at the alleged killing of a Nigerian, Celestine Nwokeocha, 36, by the South African Police.

The President of the Nigerian Union in South Africa, Adetola Olubajo, expressed the feeling of Nigerians to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the telephone from Pretoria, South Africa, yesterday.

He said witnesses alleged that Nwokeocha was tortured and beaten to death in his house at Sasolburg area of Free State Province by the police on January 15.

“An inquest docket has been opened at Zamdela Police Station, Sasolburg, with case number 183/01/2019.

“Also, Independent Police Investigation Department (IPID) is involved in the case and we have been assured that justice will be served in the matter,” he told NAN.

Mr. Olubajo said that two witnesses, Nonso, a Nigerian and Palesa, a South African, were arrested by the same police officers who allegedly killed Nwokeocha.

“The witnesses, however, appeared in court on Jan. 17, but while the South African, Palesa, was granted bail, Nonso, who is a Nigerian, was denied bail.

“Autopsy has been done by one Dr. Humphris and no sign of any substance was found in the deceased stomach.

“But there are bruises on his face, blood in his mouth and two bruises on his chest; a sign of lack of oxygen,” the president said.

He advised Nigerians resident in Sasolburg to stay calm and remain law abiding while the union works to find justice for the deceased.

According to him, Nigerians are advised to avoid engaging in activities that will jeopardise the successful prosecution of the alleged police officers.

“Nwokeocha is survived by his wife and seven-month old baby girl,” Mr. Olubajo said.

Also, on the matter, the office of the Consulate General of Nigeria in South Africa has condemned the killing of Nwokeocha.

Laren Jingina, the Vice-Consul, Information and Culture, said: “The Consulate detests in strongest terms, infringements of the law by security agents.

“The consulate demands compliance with the due process of the law, adding that if it suspects infringement by anyone it will do the needful.”

He said that the consulate was already in discussion with the relevant host authorities and would ensure that justice is done and the affected police officers brought to justice.

Mr. Jingina also urged members of the deceased family and Nigerians living in Sasolburg to remain calm and law abiding as the consulate seeks justice for the deceased. (NAN)

Divorced wife, three siblings charged with killing dad.

A divorcee, Mrs. Taiwo Idehen, and her three adult children suspected of involvement in the death of their father, a retired Superintendent of Police (SP) Mr. Joseph Idehen, have been brought before an Igbosere High Court in Lagos.

The Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (Force CIID), Alagbon-Ikoyi, arraigned Taiwo, Samuel, Michael and Ruth Idehen before Justice Adedayo Akintoye.

The defendants are standing trial on a six-count charge of alleged conspiracy to commit murder, murder, forgery of a death certificate, falsification of documents and stealing.

Last April, Justice Akintoye issued a warrant for the defendants’ arrest and for the Police to arraign them last May 8, but the arraignment could not take place.

The police, in a charge marked LD/6510c/2017, accused the defendants of conspiring to commit the offences on July 4, 2016, at the deceased’s residence: No. 5, Odetola Street, off Merit Road, Alagbado, Lagos.

The police said Taiwo was the deceased’s third wife but that they divorced over 29 years ago.

Taiwo was also said to be a Pastor of Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministry, Ishawo, Ikorodu, Lagos.

Idehen, 64, died after eating food allegedly served him by one of his daughters, about a year after he retired. The late Idehen had 11 children.

The defendants were accused of forging a death certificate from Ota General Hospital, Ogun State, with which they conveyed their father’s corpse to Aragba in Delta State.

It was also alleged that efforts to conduct an autopsy on the body proved abortive, as four of his 11 children and their mother buried him in an unknown place.

The court heard that the third defendant, Michael, fraudulently withdrew N286, 000 from Idehen’s First Bank Plc account.

All the defendants were said to have fraudulently withdrawn N2.1 million from the deceased’s Zenith Bank Plc account.

The offences, according to prosecuting counsel Morufu Animashaun, contravened sections 233, 365 (3)(d), 366 and 287 (5) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The defendants pleaded not ‘guilty'.

Animashaun prayed the court to remand them in prison custody pending the conclusion of trial.

“The defendants’ arraignment was predicated on a petition dated August 2016, written to the Police by the Chambers of Milestone Partners, wherein the role played by each of the defendants leading to the death of the retired police officer was stated,” Animashaun told the judge.

He said upon receiving the petition, each defendant was invited for interrogation and their statements were taken.

But defence counsel, Mr. Kennedy Osunwa, opposed him.

Osunwa said he had filed his clients’ bail applications “and same have been served on the prosecution.”

Justice Akintoye remanded each defendant in prison custody pending the hearing and determination of their bail applications on January 25.

Delta Man Loses Eye In Search Of Spiritual Powers To Win ‘Baba Ijebu’ Lotto.

Image result for baba ijebu lotto
A 27 year-old man has lost an eye in his quest for spiritual powers and sight to help him see luck numbers and win lottery games.

The victim, Emmanuel Okachi, reportedly sought help from a witchdoctor in Ishiagu village, near Ogwashi-Uku in Delta State to acquire spiritual sight to see lucky numbers. A friend of the victim, Osita Uzoka, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Ogwashi-Uku that the incident occurred on Jan. 12, 2019.

 “He went to see a juju man to help him acquire spiritual sight so that he can be wining lotto games, popularly known as ‘Baba Ijebu.’

“He once told me that he was worried that he has been playing lotto games without success,” Uzoka said.

According to him, Emmanuel later sought the help of a witch doctor who assured him of spiritual solution. Uzoka narrated how the victim later went to the witch doctor who reportedly prepared some concoctions for him.

He said the witch doctor gave Emmanuel the prepared substance to drink and rob on his eyes.

“He never told anyone what he did, but when he started feeling some discomfort in his left eye, he cried out.

“I heard about it from one of our friends so I went to see him, that was when he told me what transpired.

“He was taken to the hospital following a swollen eye, but no solution. Right now, he has lost his left eye,” Uzoka said.

An elder brother to the victim, Justin Okachi, told NAN that the family is devastated by the incident.

“We don’t want to say anything about it. We are really shocked by Emma’s desperation.

“For now, we want to forget about the whole incident. He has his life to live,” Uche said.

NAN gathered from village sources that the witch doctor, whose name was not given, has since gone into hiding.

Nigerian professor wants prosecution of British colonialists.

                         Image result for british colonists gif
A Nigerian author, Amadi Asuogu, wants the British prosecuted for crimes they committed against Nigeria during colonialism.

Mr Asuogu, a professor of religious studies, said this during the launch of his book: “Un-united states of Nigeria” in Abuja on Saturday.

He did not say where the trial should take place.

Mr Asuogu, who said his book contains Nigeria’s history from pre-amalgamation period, accused the British of responsibility for Nigeria’s challenges and suggested that restructuring remains the major solution to the problems of Nigeria.

“Nigeria’s amalgamation was not to unite Nigeria, but to pay the British,” he said.

“They needed to pay themselves at the time. And the northern part of the country was having a budget deficit. In order to balance this budget deficit, they needed to take the resources from the south to balance the deficit in the north. In order to do that, they needed a legal framework which was the amalgamation

“The British wanted the northern part of Nigeria to continue depending on them. They prevented the north from seeking education. They saw that in the south people were educated and there was a lot of nationalists so they enthroned the northerners during independence so that they will control Nigeria through the North. So restructuring is in order that there can be a balance of equation,” Mr Asuogu said.

Listing a number of economic and other crises experienced in Nigeria before independence, Mr Asuogu said the Nigerian government should institute legal action against its pre-colonial leaders.

“The Aba women riot of 1929 when people were slaughtered because they were protesting against taxation.

“You have the Enugu coal mine of 1947 when coal miners were murdered because they were protesting conditions of work. We have the Jos massacre where workers who were working in the tin mines were starved to death. We have the British doctrine of personification which was used to subdue villages-if you challenge them, they will kill you.

Those are the kind of things we are talking about. They cannot be allowed to stand,” Mr Asuogu said.

The author condemned Nigeria’s current electoral system, describing it as a fraud.

“Staggered elections–which is what we are currently practicing is fraudulent. For example on February 16, we have the presidential elections, whoever wins, that has a down ballot effect.

“If we were to have all the elections on the same day: when I vote, I will not know who will be the president or the governor. Everybody has the same chance. But if you, first of all, decide who will be the president, then the other parties will suffer from the effect. So that is fraudulent,” Mr Asuogu said.

Also speaking at the event, a lawyer and civil rights advocate, Frank Tietie, described the book as an essential document for all Nigerians, especially students of politics.

“The book is about the most essential book for every Nigerian politician and students of history.

“No literature has been so clear on what the problems of Nigerian politics are. The book takes a look at the pre and post-amalgamation histories of Nigeria with a view to selflessly explain the need for restructuring.

“It shows how even in Nigeria’s amalgamation the real intention of our colonial masters was so that Nigeria will never unite,” Mr Tietie said.

According to a senior Nigerian lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, in his forward to the book, “the title of the book, the “un-united states of Nigeria” derives from the reality of the problem of unity before and after amalgamation, till the present day. The book realistically presents Nigeria as: “the Commonwealth Nations of Nigeria” (C. N. N). This book shows that there is a connection between British colonialism and the ugly happenings of today.”

The book launch was organised by a group, the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR) Abuja.
