In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party described the former Chairman, Niger State PDP Elders’ Committee described the late Col. Kontagora as a courageous soldier, a fine officer and patriotic Nigerian.

The PDP said the late Kontagora made immense sacrifices for the unity, stability and development of our nation, particularly in his selfless roles towards the return of democracy in 1999.

“Late Col. Kontagora was a quintessential democrat and fearless fighter for the entrenchment and strengthening of democratic tenets of respect for the constitution, adherence to the rule of law, social justice, equality and fairness in our country.

“Col. Kontagora was a loyal party man, who remained committed to the ideals of our party as well as its stability and progress, both at the national and state levels. His contributions as the chairman of the Niger State PDP Elders’ Committee remain invaluable in the history of our party,” the statement said.

The PDP said it was saddened that Col. Kontagora left at the time the nation needed his wealth of experience and patriotism the most.

“Our party commiserates with the Kontagora family, our party fold in Niger as well as the government and people of Niger state and prays God to grant us the fortitude the bear this irreparable loss,” the party also stated.

Published

on

Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday Igboho, is set to storm Lagos for Yoruba Nation rally.
Yoruba nation protesters have held rallies across South-West states such as Osun, Ogun, Ekiti and Ondo.
Igboho is expected in Lagos on July 3, 2021 at the Ojota park in continuation of the rally for creation of Yoruba nation.
An ardent supporter of Sunday Igboho, Alaba Shomuyiwa, popularly known as Baba Confirm, Prophet of El Adonai Cherubim and Seraphim International Bible Ministries, disclosed that Igboho and other supporters would be in Lagos, urging Yoruba to support the movement.
Igboho in the past weeks expressed dissatisfaction over the continuous activities of killer herders in the south-west region.
In the last rally held in Ekiti, Igboho declared the 2023 general elections would not hold in the region unless the Oduduwa Republic is created, calling on all stakeholders to support him and other leaders in achieving it.

Security forces have rescued four of the abducted students of the Federal Government College, Birnin-Yauri in Kebbi State attacked by bandits on Thursday.

Deputy Force Commander of the Joint Task Force in the North-West, Abubakar AbdulKadir, confirmed this to reporters on Friday.
The number of students abducted by the gunmen during the attack on Thursday afternoon is yet to be confirmed.
But local media reported that about 30 of the students were taken hostage.
AbdulKadir said the troops engaged the bandits in a gun duel on Friday morning, forcing them to abandon five of their captives.
“In the early hours of this morning, we have come across the kidnappers. They came to our blocking point, and we engaged them,” he said.
He added, “At that point, they abandoned five of the students and one of the teachers. Unfortunately, I think we have lost one of the students.”

Five people have confirmed dead in the gas tanker explosion that occurred on Thursday night along Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, Lagos.
Three of the bodies were found inside one of the stores at the OPIC plaza by officials of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) around 7am on Friday.
The bodies were found while rescue team was searching for a child whose mother was rescued early Friday morning.
The woman, who was at the Chinese Restaurant, reportedly kept crying about her child when she was being evacuated to the hospital.
The officials who went from one room to the other in search of the kid reportedly discovered three bodies of men who got trapped by the fire.
The other two, including a child, were discovered by a vulcaniser who led FRSC officials on traffic control duty to the spot.
At least 13 other persons were injured after the gas tanker explosion which occurred at 10.30pm resulted in the destruction of 25 cars.
Four of the injured victims with severe burns who could not be attended to at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital were moved to the Trauma and Burns Centre of the Gbagada General Hospital.
Director General, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Dr Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, confirmed that five bodies had been recovered and 13 injured persons evacuated to the hospital.
He said the agency responded to a distress call shortly before midnight on Thursday concerning a tanker explosion which extended to the OPIC Plaza and damaged 22 parked vehicles within the premises.
“First responders worked to control the spread to the adjacent properties as well as the nearby petrol station until 0400hrs Friday.
“Thirteen people with various degrees of burns were rescued comprising nine males and four females. They were provided with pre hospital care before taken to Lagos State health facilities for further treatment
“The affected truck has been moved, the entire affected area cordoned off and post disaster assessment ongoing.”
Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, Acting Zonal Coordinator, South West Zonal Office, National Emergency Management Agency, confirmed the development in Ikeja on Friday.
He said the explosion threw the environment into panic due to the huge fire caused by the incident.
He said the explosion was reportedly caused by leakage from the gas tanker while in motion.
“The resulting fire travelled with the wind to the premises of Ogun State Property Investment Company (OPIC) Plaza besides Sheraton Hotels, which houses different commercial outfits including a Chinese Restaurant.
“The fire was put out at about 12.30am, after concerted efforts of five fire trucks from the Lagos State Fire Service and two trucks from the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency Response Unit.
