  1. Four members of a family were Wednesday butchered in Taraba State by suspected herdsmen. A 9-month old toddler, however, survived the attack. Police Commissioner, David Akinremi, who confirmed the attack and killings, said the incident took place in Bikka ‎village of Takum local government area, the home of Governor Darius Ishaku and former Defence Minister Theophilus Danjuma. The Taraba police commissioner described the killers as “unknown gunmen.” “There is no confirmation yet, as to who they (the killers) are, and their motive. “But no item seen to be stolen,” he told The Nation, adding that the killers struck at 1:00am. Hon. Shiban Tikare, the Chairman of Takum local government council, also confirmed the killing of the four members of a family in a night attack. Shiban disclosed that a nine-month old baby, however, “mysteriously” survived the attack. “The attackers invaded the village at night and slaughtered four members of a family who were deep asleep. “We heard gunshots around 1:00am along Takum -Ussa road. While we were making efforts to mobilise policemen to the area, we heard sporadic gunshots at Mbikka Central, a community just at the outskirt of the town. “By the time we got there, four people were slaughtered like chickens – a man, his wife and two children. “A baby mysteriously survived the attack. The attackers whom we suspect to be Fulani herdsmen also attacked Basam, a village close to Rtd. Gen. Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma’s farmhouse, setting the entire village ablaze,” he said. Shiban lamented that the killings were going on in the area, in spite of the extension of Exercise Ayem A Kpatuma (Cat Race) by the federal government. Police spokesman, David Misal, an ASP, said the casualty figure was still not clear, “but four bodies were recovered.”
  2. Five Cameroonian soldiers have been killed in an attack on a military post in the far north of the country, sources told AFP on Tuesday. The five, one of whom was an officer, were killed on Monday night in the village of Sagme, close to the Nigerian border and the Lake Chad region, according to relatives and local sources. Three other soldiers were wounded. No one has claimed responsibility for the killings but the area has seen many incursions by the Nigerian jihadist group Boko Haram in the past. The Cameroonian army has not commented. Cameroon, along with Chad and Niger, has joined a military effort by Nigeria to crush Boko Haram, a militant movement opposed to Western influence and seeking an Islamic state based on Sharia law, but the countries have increasingly seen the conflict spread across their borders. Since 2014, the group has killed 2,000 civilians and soldiers and kidnapped about 1,000 people in northern Cameroon, according to an analysis by the International Crisis Group (ICG) think tank. Boko Haram has caused the deaths of at least 20,000 people since it took up arms in 2009. In December, a report by the UN Committee against Torture denounced “serious crimes and atrocities” by Boko Haram in Cameroon but also said it had great concern over reports of abuse by Cameroonian security forces.

  4. AN 18-year-old student of the Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma, Collins Ojeriakhi, who was killed by a gang of armed men, suspected to be herdsmen in the Esan South-East Local Government Area of Edo State, has been buried. This was as the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Johnson Kokumo, said that one person had been arrested in connection with the killing. Kokumo also stated that investigation was ongoing to identify and arrest other members of the killer gang. Ojeriakhi and two other persons, including a minor, had been reportedly shot dead by the armed men in Ugboha on March 16. Several other people were also said to have been injured during the attack. The late Ojeriakhi, a first year student of Banking and Finance at the AAU, was said to be on his way from Uromi on a motorcycle when the assailants opened fire on him. It was learnt that the youngest of the victims was returning from Lagos along with his mother and sibling on a motorcycle when he was shot. It was also learnt that he later died in his mother’s arms after efforts to save his life proved abortive. Governor Godwin Obaseki, who condemned the killings, had also ordered the arrest of the culprits within seven days. However, family members and sympathisers wept as the body of the late undergraduate was interred in his father’s compound located in Oyomon Quarters, Ineme-Ugboha, at about 5pm on Wednesday. It was gathered that the burial was witnessed by some security agents, members of the Students’ Union Government from AAU and classmates of the deceased. The father of the deceased, Mr. Festus Ojeriakhi, described his late son as a hardworking and peace-loving person who would be missed by his relatives and friends. Ojeriakhi stated, “The boy (Collins) used the motorcycle to carry cassava for me from the farm four times in a day. He was very cool-headed, quiet and did not cause trouble. “It is too unfortunate and I miss him. I have even started clearing my farm, hoping that he would come home after his first semester to help me. “It was because of him that I tried to extend my farm. He was still growing with a lot of stamina and he loved school and farming. We used to farm together before I lost him.” Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Kokumo, said the suspect arrested in connection with the killings was still being profiled and he would be charged to court soon. Kokumo added, “We have arrested one person and the person will appear in court. We are investigating, profiling him. We want to ensure that we are able to lay hands on other members of the gang.”

  6. The Nigeria Police, yesterday, paraded two suspected political thugs with two AK-47 and five pump action guns allegedly working for the lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district, Senator Dino Melaye. The two suspects– Kabiru Saidu aka Osama, 31, and Nuhu Salisu aka Small, 25, were paraded by the Police Force Headquarters Public Relation Officer, Mr. Jimoh Moshood, at the Kogi State Police Command in Lokoja. According to him, they were arrested after a gun battle with a Police team, which lasted for several hours on January 19. However, reacting to the allegations, Senator Melaye said it was an orchestrated lie by the governor and the Police to shut him up, and that he had never seen the arrested suspects. Meanwhile, parading the two kidnappers alleged to have been supplied guns and ammunition by Senator Melaye, Moshood said the Senator had been ignoring Police invitations to clear his name from the allegation. Moshood said the two suspects, Osama and Small, were members of a notorious gang behind numerous kidnapping and robbery cases in the state. He said: “Working on actionable intelligence, the Kogi State Police Command personnel and Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, FSARS, trailed and arrested the two suspects after a gun battle with the Police team on January 19 at Ogojueje in Dekina Local Government Area of Kogi State. “During investigation, they confessed to several kidnappings and robberies in different towns across the state and its environs for which they have been on the wanted list of the Police for more than two years. “During interrogation, they further confessed they were political thugs recruited by some mischievous politicians in Kogi to cause mayhem, disruption of peace, and destruction of lives and properties in the state.” Continuing, the Police spokesman said: “They also confessed to belong to the gang of a dreaded and vicious kidnap-for-ransom gang under a gang leader whose whereabouts is being investigated. “According to the gang leader, Kabiru Saidu, he has been working as a political thug for a politician, who introduced him to Senator Dino Melaye and they met at Airport Road, Abuja inside Senator Melaye’s car in December 2017. “The suspect further confessed that Senator Dino told him to start working for him as a political thug and they should recruit and train more thugs to work for him in preparations towards 2019 general election to enable him challenge his political opponents and disorganise Kogi State.” Moshood said the suspects further confessed that Dino handed over a bag containing one AK-47 rifle, two pump action and N430,000 for them to share. He said a case of criminal conspiracy and unlawful possession of prohibited firearms had been filed by the Police against the two suspects and Senator Dino Melaye. Meanwhile, Senator Dino Melaye in his reaction to the allegations, said it was a frame-up and an orchestrated attempt by the state government to discredited him. The Senator said he had never seen the suspects in his life and did not have anything to do with them. Melaye said the move was an attempt by the Kogi State government to shut him up and prevent him from speaking the truth about governance in the state. The Senator noted that he contested and won elections into the House of Representatives and the Senate without working with political thugs, saying the plan had been exposed about six weeks ago. Melaye’s words: “This is an attempt to shut me up and stop me from speaking the truth. But they have failed. It is an orchestrated lie by the governor and the Police. “I have tweeted about it six weeks ago; that they want to set me up because I got a tip-off from government house when they met to set me up. “You can see the conflicting statements by the criminals. I heard one said I gave two AK-47 and pump action, while the other said I gave only one rifle and that I gave N430,000 to train militia, and that I met them on Airport Road in December 2017. “But they didn’t give a date and time. I don’t know anybody. I have not involved myself with any thug. I became member House of Representatives and Senate without thug. If this is an attempt to shut me up they have failed.”
  7. Recently arrested 39-year-old vicious assassin, Adeola Williams aka Ade Lawyer, has confessed that he has killed over 100 since assassinating people was his source of livelihood. “But now I’m born again,” he said while being paraded.

While giving an account of his activities, he said, “If I get a chance to regain my freedom in this life, I will never go back to crime again. I also advise the millions of youths out there that crime does not pay. I was into crime for over 20 years and despite the risk involved and lack of rest of mind, I have nothing to show for it except the uncompleted bungalow in Ibadan. I have nothing on ground to fall back on despite taking the lives of more than 100 Nigerians. May God forgive me.” . However, Williams said he decided to take the life of Kunle Poly for refusing to talk to the state chairman of the union, Tajudeen Agbede, on his behalf. He said he worked hard for Agbede to emerge as the chairman but that he was dumped after the election. . Williams added, “I thought about my predicament because my wife was heavily pregnant and the money I was getting from Oluomo wasn’t enough and I wasn’t ready to use my gun for armed robbery, so I decided to end the life of the man who refused to help me mend my relationship with Agbede.” . He said after the attack on Kunle Poly, he was later arrested but that he didn’t want to go down alone, thus he indicted some other persons. . He added, “I decided to rope in Olorunwa because he was the one who ruined my life. It was my support for him during his fight with MC Oluomo that made me to lose my position at the union. . After he was removed from office, he had so much money but he was wasting it on women and movie actors and he refused to help me. I was just so bitter, so I framed him.” He said he also decided to lie against MC Oluomo and Prince Kazeem Aletu
