Northern govs in Ibadan over ethnic tension, IGP deploys special squad

Published

on

Following rising ethnic tension in Ibadan, Oyo State, after the Shasha market clash, Governor Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi State, on Monday led Governors Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Abubakar Bello (Niger) and Bello Matawalle (Zamfara) into a meeting with Governor Seyi Makinde (Oyo) at the Oyo State Government House, Ibadan.

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Abubakar Adamu, also on Monday ordered the immediate deployment of Police Intervention and Stabilisation Forces to Oyo State to reclaim the public space, reinforce security and bolster public confidence in the areas affected by the recent crisis in the state.

This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja by the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Frank Mba.

The governors, who arrived at 7.03pm, were subsequently led into a closed-door meeting by the host governor, Makinde, which was rounded off after some minutes.

The meeting with Makinde has to do with the Shasha market crisis with the governors billed to make an on-the-spot assessment visit to the market on Tuesday.

The governors are also billed to meet with various stakeholders in the crisis on Tuesday, with a view to arriving at amicable resolutions.

Others present at the meeting are Special Adviser to the governor on Security, Mr Fatai Owoseni; Special Assistant to the governor on Community Relations (Arewa Community), Alhaji Ahmad Murtala; Serikis representing Hausa communities, among other stakeholders.

The police statement said, “The deployment, consisting largely of intelligence and operational assets of the force include four units of the Police Mobile Force (PMF), seasoned operatives from the Force Intelligence Bureau and one operational/surveillance Police helicopter from the Police Air-wing department.”

It explained that the “Intervention Force is charged with the responsibility of reinforcing and stabilizing security in the state, preventing further breakdown of law and order, protecting lives and properties and ultimately enhancing public safety and general security in the state.”

According to the statement, “the intervention force is being coordinated by a Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG), David Folawiyo, who is expected to mobilize all relevant stakeholders towards achieving the mandate of the squad.”

It further added that the IGP assured that the force was committed to the safety of lives and properties of the citizens in the country and called on the citizens and residents of Oyo State and other Nigerians to embrace peace and cooperate with the police and the security community as they redouble their efforts in ensuring that sustainable peace and security were restored to the affected areas.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching
    to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?

    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things

    I believe what you posted was very reasonable.
    However, think about this, what if you composed a catchier title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose
    you added a headline to maybe grab a person’s
    attention? I mean Northern govs in Ibadan over ethnic tension, IGP deploys special squad
    – Newstrends is a little plain. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news
    titles to get people interested. You might
    add a video or a related pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

‘One chance’ robbers torture, dispossess commuter of laptop, money, phones

Published

on

Saheed Ogungbenro

An accountant at a construction company on Victoria Island, Lagos State, Saheed Ogungbenro, has recounted his ordeal at the hands of brisk traffic robbers locally known as ‘one chance’ robbers along the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.

It was learnt that the hoodlums in a Sienna car beat up Ogungbenro, robbed him of a laptop, two phones ATM card, among other items, and transferred money from his bank account.

The victim, who was hospitalised after the encounter, told our correspondent on Friday that he boarded the vehicle at the U-Turn bus stop along the expressway around 5am while going to work.

He explained that he met two ‘passengers’ in the car, adding that trouble began after the driver picked another person at Abule-Egba.

“One of the two men at the back held me in the neck while the other man that entered later punched me in the face. One of them hit my nails with a hammer. I was overpowered. They collected my phones, laptop, national identity card, driving licence and my company ID card. They asked for my card pin and information about how to open my banking mobile app.

“I had to give them everything. I have N830,000 in my Access Bank account. I don’t know how much they transferred from it though someone had gone to the bank on my behalf and they had blocked my account. I had my Diamond (Access) ATM card with me. They collected it and transferred money from my Access Bank account to the Diamond (Access) account. I don’t know how much they transferred.”

Ogungbenro said the robbers dropped him off around the Oke-Odo area and zoomed off, leaving him in pain.

He added, “A motorcycle rider who saw me groaning with pain said I was the fourth person robbed and dumped at the spot. It was a tricycle rider who eventually took me to the hospital. The case was reported at the Oke-Odo Police Station.

“I was in a hurry that day. I didn’t go to the office in my car because I was tired. That was not the first time I would board Sienna to the office. Many commuters going to Victoria Island always rush to board Sienna at the bus stop early in the morning.”

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, could not be reached for comment on the incident.

Thereafter, two of the gunmen were said to have gone inside the room and held the woman and her two children at gunpoint and dragged them into their car and they drove away.

It was also gathered that stray bullets from the gunshots hit two commercial motorcycle riders in the process and they sustained severe injuries.

The wounded Okada riders who were said to have been rushed to an unknown hospital in the town, are said to be recuperating at press time.

As at the time of filing this report, it was not known if the alleged abductors of the woman and her two children had contacted the family for a ransom payment.

The state police command is also yet to confirm the incident.

Contacted, Spokesperson of the command Ajayi Okasanmi told Sunday Vanguard that he has not been briefed of the incident.

He said, “I am not aware of the incident, but I will get back to you as soon as I am officially briefed of the development.”

How 20-year-old was killed and buried by his parents in Imo

Published

on

CP Rabiu Hussaini

Lambert Osundu and his wife, Racheal, an Imo-based couple who reportedly murdered their son, are currently cooling off in police custody.

The duo were said to have connived with their daughter to kill 20-year-old Chukwuebuka, whom they accused of being too stubborn.

The suspects, who hail from Umuezealagwu in Ehime Mbano local government area of Imo, were said to have committed the heinous act on September 14, 2021.

They reportedly told curious relatives that Chukwuebuka travelled to Ghana.

However, community members, who were not satisfied with their response, alerted the police who swung into action.

Upon interrogation, the trio were said to have confessed that they hit Chukwuebuka with a wood and left him to die.

They also confessed to have buried him in a shallow grave behind their compound.

A source from the community, who spoke anonymously, said, “Chukwuebuka used to be popular among us and he had never hinted us that he would be travelling. When we could not see him and his family could not give enough information, we reported them to the police.”

Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Mike Abattam, confirmed the incident.

He said following credible information, the Commissioner of Police, CP Rabiu Hussaini, immediately dispatched detectives to Ehime Mbano LGA of Imo, the alleged scene of the crime.

“On arrival, the command’s operatives based on intelligence, interrogated one Robert Anyanwu chairman of Umuezealagwu Umuduruekwe in Ehime Mbano LGA of Imo State, and it was revealed that, on 14/9/2021 at about 1200 hour, the Osundu family comprising of Lambert Osundu ‘M’, Ndubuisi Osundu “M” and Rechael Osundu “F” all of Umuduruihiako Umueze ll in Ehime Mbano local government area of Imo State, conspired and beat their youngest brother, Chukwuebuka Osundu “M” aged 20 years to death for yet to confirmed reason(s).

“After killing him, the father of the deceased with the assistance of Ndubuisi Osundu carried the lifeless body to the back of their compound, dug a shallow grave and secretly buried the corpse.

“The command’s operatives with the support of the community were able to arrest two suspects, they are Lambert Osundu and Racheal Osundu.

“Presently, they are undergoing interrogation and have made useful statements that will lead to the arrest of the other family members on the run,” Abattam said.
