Afenifere to ACF: Call criminal elements among Fulani to order

Published

on

The Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, has asked the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) to call the criminal elements among the Fulani in the South-West to order rather than threaten with another civil war in Nigeria.

It described the ACF’s statement on the crisis in the South-West as insulting and arrogant.

On Friday, some houses inhabited by the Fulani in Igangan in the Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State were torched.

The incident took place after Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, addressed his supporters in Ibarapa on Friday after his seven-day eviction notice served on herdsmen had expired.

The ACF later issued a statement that the reported attacks on the Fulani in the South-West could trigger another civil war if government failed to act swiftly.

But the National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, said the ACF could not threaten the South-West with a civil war.

“While we have gone to a great length to sue for peace and have appealed to our pained people to be law-abiding even with the daily provocations of the Fulani and harassment of our people, we frown on the very arrogant and insulting ACF statement, especially their reference to the event of 1966,” Odumakin said.

“We must make it clear to them that they cannot threaten us with a war at this stage as we will not provoke war but never are we going to run for anybody on our land.

“We are miffed that a body like ACF that has never shown any remorse over the killing of our people can open their mouths anyhow now because there are consequences for the irresponsible actions of their people.

“We advise them to call their criminals to order and not expect our people to sheepishly wait to be killed by those who value cow lives more than human beings.

“We do not want a repeat of 1966 event but if there are people plotting such event again, the rain will be over their heads.”

Pandemonium as Lagos motorcyclists kill policeman, destroy patrol vehicles

Published

on

A Chief Superintendent of Police, Kazeem Abonde, has been killed during a clash between policemen and motorcyclists in the Ajao Estate area of Lagos State.

PUNCH Metro gathered that the policemen were carrying out enforcement in the area on Thursday when they were resisted by the riders, who protested against the seizure of their means of livelihood.

The situation was said to have snowballed into a clash and resulted in the death of Abonde, who was reportedly hacked to death.

Our correspondent saw a photo of the bloodied remains of the policeman as he lay motionless by the roadside. The victim’s head appeared to have been smashed with some objects.

Another photo captured no fewer than 10 persons milling around a damaged patrol van inscribed with the Lagos State Police Command.

A source told our correspondent that the policemen involved in the incident were attached to the Ajao Police Station.

“Everywhere is tense; we don’t know what exactly caused the fight, but we know that there was a confrontation between motorcyclists and the policemen attached to the Ajao Police Station,” the source added.

Three suspected kidnappers have been arrested by the Nigeria Police in connection with the abduction of over 100 students of Bethel Baptist school in Kaduna State.

The suspects include, “Adamu Bello, Isiaku Lawal and Muazu Abubakar.”

They were paraded on Thursday by the Force Public Relations Officers, Frank Mba, at the headquarters of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The suspects dressed in military camouflage told journalists during an interview that they were among the 25 gunmen who stormed the school recently.

Abubakar, a 27-year-old suspect, said, “Twenty-five of us carried out the operation. We kidnapped 136 students and I got N100,000 share from the money.”

DAILY POST recalls that the school was invaded by armed men suspected to be bandits on July 5, 2021, while 121 students were whisked away.

Some of the abducted students have, however, regained their freedom.
