Update! Gov Fayose says 'It's Shameful That DSS Is Leaking Our Phone Conversations'

A leaked conversation was released earlier of Governors Ayo Fayose and Nyesom Wike, where both men were heard talking about the Rivers Re-Run Election. The issue is generating ripples.

Read Governor Fayose's reaction:

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has accused the Department of State Service (DSS) of recording telephone conversations of Nigerians perceived as critical of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s All Progressives Congress (APC) government, editing the conversations and leaking same to Sahara Reporters, which has now become the official propaganda platform of the federal government.

Governor Fayose, who said he was not bothered by the new sinister antic of the federal government, added that; "Rather than sitting down and be monitoring peoples phones, the federal government should provide food for Nigerians and save the lives of those that are being killed in Southern Kaduna and other places."

The governor, who reacted to his telephone conversation with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike that was published by Sahara Reporters today, through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said; “If the President and his hatchet men in the DSS, EFCC and other federal government agencies do not know what to do other than to record phone conversations of their perceived political foes, they should just resign and save the country from this harrowing experience."

He said it was obviously that they were being threatened by the complimentary comments of notable Nigerians like Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Pastor W. F. Kumuyi, Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and others about him because those comments negate the cabal's evil intentions.

The governor described the DSS recording telephone conversations of Nigerians and leaking them to Sahara Reporters to publish as the height of the political rascality, manipulation, oppression, suppression and irresponsibility by agents of the federal government that are trying so hard to cover up the crimes they perpetrated against the people of Rivers State.

"They should even go beyond taping of my lines and come to live with me in Ekiti government house so that they can do per seconds live recordings of whatever I say because in the year 2017, by the grace of God, I will still say more without apology," he said.

Governor Fayose said for the first time since democracy returned to the country in 1999, Nigerians were celebrating Christmas and new year with hunger and sufferings beyond measure. "Nigerians are asking for food on their tables, they want employments, they want security, not recording of people's phone conversations and handing it to a road side online platform to publish.

"Unemployment and job loss are increasing at a very alarming rate while the electoral process is daily being bastardised. "Rather than tackling hunger and the country’s economic woes, they have embarked on diversionary tactics with irrelevant stories of Governors Wike and Fayose’s phone conversations, governors who do not bear arms and have no control over any security apparatus," the governor said.

He said: “I knew it before now that telephone conversations of prominent Nigerians, especially National Assembly members and opposition figures are being monitored, but I have remained unperturbed in my resolve to play my roles in rescuing Nigeria from the jaws of tyranny, which the present APC federal government represents."

While maintaining that the APC led federal government do not respect the laws of the country, Governor Fayose said; “They know that what they are doing is illegal and clear contravention of Section 37 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, which provides that; ‘The privacy of citizens, their homes, correspondence, telephone conversations and telegraphic communications is hereby guaranteed and protected.’ “However, because they are criminally minded and are running a tyrannical government, using the DSS, EFCC and other agencies, one is not surprised at the current development.

He encouraged Nigerians not to keep silent in the face of this tyranny, saying; "it will get to everybody one day, some day.” He said; "Like I said before, their style has become so predictable. Whenever Nigerians cry of the pains and sufferings they are going through, they will come with flimsy stories like; “20 Chibok girls found,” “$1 billion found in Mr A, B or C bedroom,” “Boko Haram technically defeated,” “We have captured Sambisa forest,” "Governors Wike and Fayose’s phone conversations leaked," etc just to divert attention. "Regrettably, Governors Wike and Fayose that bear no arm remain their headache while their agents that bear arms like guns, armoured tanks and fighter jets etc, using them against Nigerians have not been called to question.

"Going by the barrage of pains being inflicted on Nigerians by his cluelessness, if I will give the President a candid advise, I will tell him to resign because he has failed Nigerians, whose votes he obtained by deception. Under his watch, Dollar is now N500 to $1, their is unprecedented hunger in the land, Nigerians are being killed in Southern Kaduna and other places, "It is better for the President to resign because he appears not to have capacity for positivity.

"If all the presidents that ruled before Buhari had behaved like he is behaving now, he himself will be in jail. "However, let me say it once again, I am one person who is not afraid of death or incarceration. I will keep telling Nigerians the truth, which obviously hurts Buhari and the cabal around him."

Wow! Read inspiring story of Nigerian man who wrote JAMB 7 times ...photo

Mocked, criticized and called a failure after writing JAMB seven times without gaining admission into the university, and even contemplated suicide, Precious Ogechi Ogbueri, went on to earn a BSc, Masters degrees, seven professional certificates and and to crown it all, he qualified as a Chartered Environmentalist in the UK.  Below is his inspiring story:

After my secondary education, I decided to further my studies.
I wrote the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th JAMB exams and they were all cancelled. I decided to take the bull by the horn. I went to Enugu State University for a pre-degree program. On the completion of the program, I was offered a course in faculty of Science but the cultism in the institution as at then was unbearable for me, having being attacked twice. I decided to use the 5th JAMB that was released to study at University of Port Harcourt. Then ASUU had a protracted strike that lasted for over six months, I needed to write a 6th JAMB and I scored 274 but that score couldn’t offer me admissions as the two JAMBS were combined because the strike entered another year.
After the first 6yrs at home, WAEC too was cancelling my results and I wrote WAEC/NECO four times. I was frustrated, mocked, criticized and called a failure. Some of my classmates were already youth Corpers. Many out of pity told me to quit because school wasn’t for me. The criticisms, mockery and name calling from people that didn’t know what I was passing through compounded my issues and I started thinking of quitting/suicide. 

One evening, my brother in-law/mentor told me “Ogechi nobody can frustrate or determine the outcome of your life except you, don’t quit trying, you’ll be whatever you want to be” I repeated that to myself over a hundred times that night and I assumed the position of a CEO in my life.

I enrolled for another pre-degree program in University of Port Harcourt, and wrote the 7th JAMB and it was also canceled but thank God I passed the BASIC program. So to gain admissions to do a bachelors program, I wrote JAMB 7times, WAEC/NECO 4times and Pre-degree 2times.

However, when I finally entered University, I passed Rivers State government scholarship exams to study abroad but few weeks to departure, another government took over in 2007 and cancelled the scholarship. But I told myself I must study in Nigeria and abroad…..

People called me a failure but, I don’t know if I am still a failure, if school is for me now or not, or if am still bewitched as people said..

All I can remember now is that I have done BSc in Nigeria, Masters in Safety and Environmental Management in UK, have seven additional professional certifications, qualified as a Chartered Environmentalist in UK and have worked both in Nigeria & Scotland.

I have learnt that setbacks are actually strongholds in disguise if we don’t quit trying.
I have learnt that persistence wears off every resistance.
I have also learnt as a Christian that if your faith says Yes, God won’t say No, only be DETERMINED.
I give God ALL the glory and shame to the devil.

Shocking! Son of former House of Reps member sentenced to death by hanging

Image result for images of someone hung
A High court sitting in Katsina State has sentenced 32 year old Mu’ammar Tukur, son of former House of Representatives member and District Head of Bakori, to death by hanging for culpable homicide.

Tukur was dragged before the court for using a knife to stab one Shafir Muktar to death on April 21st 2008 during a fight between him and some other young men at a football viewing center.

Delivering judgment in the case today, the presiding judge, Justice Abbas Bawale, said the argument put forward by the convict's counsel, AbdulAziz Olagoke, were unsustainable.

Bawale ‎said that the accused went into hiding between 2008 and 2013 after committing the crime and was arrested at the grave yard during the funeral of his deceased mother.

He added that Tukur's explanation that he was provoked to commit the crime was not satisfactory because he left the scene and came with the metallic instrument to commit the crime.

The judge said the prosecution had proved the case beyond reasonable doubt as required by law and sentenced the convict to death by hanging. He stressed that the plea for leniency could not be entertained because the court’s discretion was blocked by law and directed that the plea should be set to the state governor.

Boko Haram leader re-surface in new video, says group safe and not crushed

Boko Haram’s elusive leader Abubakar Shekau appeared in a new video on Thursday to dispute a claim that the jihadist group had been routed from its Sambisa Forest stronghold.

“We are safe. We have not been flushed out of anywhere. And tactics and strategies cannot reveal our location except if Allah wills by his decree,” Shekau said in the 25-minute video, flanked by masked armed fighters.

“You should not be telling lies to the people,” he said, referring to Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who said on Christmas Eve that the extremist group had been defeated and driven from the forest, its last known bastion.

“If you indeed crushed us, how can you see me like this? How many times have you killed us in your bogus death?” he asked.

It was not immediately clear where the new video was shot, but Shekau, who spoke in both Hausa and Arabic, said it was filmed on Christmas Day.

Shekau last appeared in a video in September where he disputed a claim by the Nigerian military that he had been wounded in battle.

He vowed to continue fighting on until an Islamic state was imposed in northern Nigeria.

“The war is not over yet. There is still more,” he said, vowing no “respite” for Nigerians.

He urged followers around the world to “fight and kill infidels.”

“Our aim is to establish an Islamic Caliphate and we have our own Caliphate, we are not part of Nigeria.”

Boko Haram, which last year pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group, has been in the grip of a power struggle.

The IS high command said in August that Shekau had been replaced as leader by Abu Musab al-Barnawi, the 22-year-old son of Boko Haram’s founder Mohammed Yusuf.

According to Cameroon Intelligence Report, the man had a long and successful session in a hotel with one of his many concubines when his wife, said to be a publisher stormed the room and took photos of him. 

"Internet users are wondering about the publisher’s interest in releasing on the internet a picture of a man she calls her husband. Many have questioned if is a blackmail that went wrong or an attempt to undermine the image of the deputy mayor?

"This phenomenon is increasing in Cameroon despite a new penal code voted into law that prescribes severe punishment on attacks on privacy using the social media"

Lagos state Governor Ambode to grant Amnesty to Cultists

The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has said the government is ready to grant amnesty to those willing to renounce their membership of cult groups and turn a new leaf.

Ambode, who spoke in Ikorodu at the ongoing ‘One Lagos Fiesta,’ said his administration had perfected plans to rehabilitate criminals, who were ready to be law-abiding, with a view to making them contribute meaningfully to the society.
The governor expressed concern over the spate of cult clashes, attacks and other crimes in the Ikorodu area, adding that although the government had the capacity to deal with such crimes, amnesty being offered would encourage many troublemakers to turn away from their old ways and embrace new lives.

“In the last few months, we have been having challenges of cultism in the Ikorodu area, and a lot of issues that relate to kidnapping. So, we are going to strike a deal tonight; we are going to say no to cultism and then we are going to encourage all of you. We are going to grant amnesty to anyone who is a cult member. I want to use the whole of 2017 to rehabilitate all those who have been doing bad things; we are going to provide money and we are going to provide jobs,” Ambode said.

The governor also stressed the importance of education and urged youths in the area to strive to be educated, and thereafter pursue their dreams.

Addressing the mammoth crowd who came out for the fiesta, Ambode urged parents to talk to their children on the need to shun all forms of violence and crime.

FG warns Hospitals against detaining patients over bills

The Federal Government has warned against hospitals detaining patients who cannot pay their medical bills, even as it said it would do everything possible to reduce reliance by public officials on foreign hospitals for healthcare services in 2017.

Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole, at a briefing in Abuja, told doctors and hospitals that they did not have any right to detain any patient who could not pay bills.

According to the minister, a more dignified way must be found to treat indigent patients than detaining them over inability to pay bills.

To put its hospitals in order and render critical medical services to Nigerians, the Federal Government is to engage the services of two medical equipment manufacturers to supply and equip its tertiary hospitals across the country.

Similarly, the federal government plans to build and equip at least 109 primary health centres in all the senatorial districts in the country in a bid to make health care delivery handy to Nigerians.

Under the plan, the minister said, his ministry had begun the process of formulating a national health policy that would also affect the administration of the National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS, to allow more Nigerians to benefit from the scheme.

He also announced that no fewer than seven trauma centres were being built across the country, while effort was also being made to tackle the scourge of cancer. Adewole explained that contrary to the notion that cancer was a killer, it could actually be treated and contained if diagnosed and treated early, saying “we will begin to deal effectively with cancer beginning from 2017.”

Edo executes three, as Aregbesola grants Amnesty to four Death-Row inmates

Despite the moratorium on death penalty, which Nigeria signed, the Edo State governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has signed the warrant for the execution of three death-row inmates at Oko Prison, outside Benin, Edo State. The death row inmates, who were executed on December 23, 2016 are Ogbomoro Omoregie, Apostle Igene and Mark Omosowhota.

This came as Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State, yesterday, granted amnesty to four death-row prison inmates in three South West prisons.

Director of Public Prosecutions and Secretary to Osun State Advisory Council on Prerogative of Mercy, Mr Pomade Adeniji, announced the amnesty in a statement in Osogbo.

He said, “Pursuant to the advice and recommendations of the State Advisory Council on Prerogative of Mercy, Governor Aregbesola, in exercise of his powers, has granted amnesty to the prison inmates.”

It said the inmates were serving their jail terms at federal prisons in Ilesha, Ibara and Abeokuta as well as the Maximum Security Prison, Kirikiri in Lagos.

Meanwhile, a civil society group, Legal Defence and Assistance Project, LEDAP, has condemned the execution on December 23, of three death row inmates of Oko Prisons, Edo State following the death warrants signed by Governor Obaseki.

The death-row inmates in Benin Prison, were all convicted and sentenced to death about 20 years ago by military tribunals under the Robbery and Firearms (Special Provisions) Decree as amended.

In an earlier petition submitted to the governor by the executed prisoners on December 21, 2016 through LEDAP, protesting the plan for their execution, the prisoners had pleaded with the governor to shelve the planned execution because there was a pending case at the Court of Appeal, Lagos brought by all death row prisoners in Nigeria against their execution. The appeal had not been decided and it was therefore, illegal to carry out the executions, Mr Chino Obiagwu, National Coordinator of LEDAP had argued in the earlier petition.

He said they were appalled that the earliest social duty of Governor Obaseki upon assumption of office was execution of his citizens on death row.

Police foil plot to bomb Third Mainland Bridge, arrest suspect ...photo

The Nigerian police has arrested a man, Abiodun Amos aka Senti who is one of the leaders of a notorious militant group that operate in Ikorodu and Arepo areas of Lagos and Ogun states for was plotting, with some of his gang members who are currently at large, to bomb the Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos.
According to a statement released by Police Public Relations Officer, Don Awunah, a deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, the gang leader, Abiodun Amos, said yesterday, that his group planned to bomb the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos in November because the Federal Government failed to consider its members for amnesty.
The suspect, Senti, is a 43-year-old native of Arogbo, in Ese-Odo Local Government Area of Ondo State. He was arrested by operatives of the Inspector General of Police Special Intelligence Response Team, IRT,

Amos said they were unable to carry out their plan because he got arrested on November 2, 2016, by the Inspector-General of Police Special Intelligence Response Team, led by Abba Kyari, an Assistant Commissioner of Police.

Amos was apprehended and arrested in a hideout at a river bank in Majidun area of Ikorodu, Lagos, on Monday, where two AK 47 rifles were recovered from him. Two cartons of explosives, with the words Gelatine Dynamite inscribed on them, and detonators, were also recovered from the group’s operational saloon car. 
Amos said:
‘’General” Ossy (leader of the gang) said if we don’t blow up the Third Mainland Bridge, government will not listen to us. We had concluded plans to carry out the attack by November ending. 
‘’I am the group’s explosives expert and before I was arrested we were going into the creeks to conclude plans on how to carry out the attack.”
“We went into bank robberies and kidnapping because we wanted to get government’s attention and all we wanted was for them to grant us amnesty and also offer us pipeline protection contract. ‘’We have made several appeals but government is not listening to us.
He added that their  kidnapping business ended when it became difficult for its members due to the presence of the military and policemen.

”The principal suspect is an Ijaw man and a Native of Ese Odo LGA of Ondo State. He is an Explosives Expert who specializes in assembling and modifying large scale Improvised Explosives Devices (IED) for terrorist act.

The suspect also volunteered confessional statement to the Police and named other members of the militant group that are still at large.

One of the core suspects of the gang who was mentioned by Amos as the person in possession of their explosive devices and the detonators, was trailed by the Police (IRT) Operatives on the 26th December, 2016 while driving a Toyota Camry Car. The suspect had 2 Cartons of Galantine Dynamite Explosives and 125 Detonators in the boot of the Car in a location in Ikorodu, on his way to connect with the other members of the militant gang to blow up the 3rd mainland bridge. However, when the suspect saw the police, he quickly jumped out of the car and made his escape into a bush.

Fortunately, the huge disaster of blowing up the bridge was averted after the explosive devices and the detonators were recovered by the Police IRT operatives and the Explosive Ordinance Department.”

The leader of the militant group, known as “General” Ossy Ibori, has allegedly coordinated many bank robberies and several high-profile kidnappings, including the kidnap of three school girls at Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary School in Ikorodu; kidnap of four landlords at Isheri North Area of Lagos; abduction of Oniba of Ibaland, Oba Goriola Oseni, among several others crimes.
He also boasted in an interview with Vanguard that his group had over 21 “generals” and had 7,800 battle-ready boys.

He added that the group is rich enough to fight the Federal Government, having acquired thousands of arms and ammunition similar to that of the military.

The police in s statement , said further investigation is being intensified to arrest all the other members of the militant gang still at large.

Don Awunah said:
“Yes, an individual was arrested. On sighting the policemen, the second suspect jumped out of his car and escaped into the bush, abandoning the operational vehicle. ‘’On searching the vehicle, two cartons of Gelatine dynamite explosives and hundreds of detonators were recovered in the boot of the car. Efforts to arrest the remaining gang members are in progress.”
