policemen rob doctor-police

The police in Anambra has debunked the reports that gunmen on Sunday struck at the Assemblies of God Church on the Oguta road Onitsha, Anambra State.

The Anambra Police Public Relations Officer, Princess Nkiru Nwode, in a telephone interview, said the Onitsha incidence has nothing to do with the church.

She said the attack was on policemen who were on foot patrol along Oguta road in the commercial city of the state.

According to her, the attackers were hoodlums who disguised themselves as masquerades to dispossess innocent citizens of their belongings and in the process killed a police man and injured some others .

The report had it that the gunmen had momentarily stopped at the Assemblies of God Church, but on sighting some policemen at the church, opened fire on them.

“When the firing became too hot, the policemen abandoned their patrol vehicle and ran away for safety.

“The gunmen moved to their patrol van and took a gun belonging to the policeman they killed,” the report stated.

    This rubbish has to stopped now. Igbo are not known for such radicalism. This is how Boko Haram started way back in 1999 during the time of Mohammed Yusuf. We should be very carful at this point in time. Our enemies are at work using our own people.

DSS Arrests Journalist For Allegedly Publishing Articles Criticising Buhari, Tinubu

Published

on

A Journalist, Ayoola Babalola has been arrested by the officials of the State Security Service (SSS) for allegedly publishing contents deemed critical of President Muhammadu Buhari, APC Leader Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Economic Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC).

Babalola arrest was made known by Human Right Lawyer, Inibehe Effiong in a series of tweets on micro-blogging site, Twitter on Saturday Morning.

Effiong said he was arrested on Thursday in Abeokuta by operatives of the SSS and taken before a Magistrate Court on Friday.

Effiong said DSS doesn’t have any case against his client.

According to him, I haven’t seen anything in the article he wrote or published to warrant the actions they have taken.

He said, “He was admitted to bail when he appeared in court and we will be there on the next adjourned date, which is on the 27th of January, 2020.

“They don’t have any case against him. The point is I am aware they have been on his matter for sometimes, trailing. I think they are just overreacting for nothing. Frankly speaking and they will not get away with this because whether the case is dropped or not, we will have to seek redress.

“It is actively unnecessary to arrest him as he hasn’t committed any crime. I haven’t seen anything in the article he wrote or published to warrant the actions they have taken.”

Effiong tweets read, “Late on Friday, I was alerted that my client Mr. Ayoola Babalola, a courageous student activist and young journalist, was arrested and charged to court for allegedly publishing certain articles in a Campus Newspaper called GAPOSA Trumpet in which he served as the Editor.

“Babalola recently graduated from the Gateway Polytechnic located in Sapaade, Ogun State, where he read Mass Communication.

“The said articles which were deemed critical of President Buhari, APC Leader, Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the EFCC also led to the dismissal of a lecturer of Gateway Polytechnic who served as the Producer of the campus newspaper.

“He was arrested on Thursday in Abeokuta by the State Security Service (SSS) and taken before a Magistrate Court on Friday.

“His appeal to the SSS for him to be allowed to contact me as his counsel was rebuffed.

“Mr. Babalola was only able to contact me through a third party from the Ibara Maximum Prison in Abeokuta where he was remanded by the court.

“I understand that he was arraigned on a six-count charge bothering on alleged incitement, conduct likely to cause a breach of the peace and so on for allegedly publishing critical articles against President Buhari.

“The said articles also related to the travails of the leader of the RevolutionNow movement, Mr Omoyele Sowore, and student activist, Comrade Femi Adeyeye.

“Before his secret arrest and arraignment, Babalola briefed me over repressive actions which he believed Gateway Polytechnic may likely take against him over the articles.

“Mr. Babalola also intimated me that the SSS was possibly trailing him because of the said articles.

“I condemn this despotic and needless actions by the SSS. It is a shame that at a time the country is battling serious security challenges, the SSS rather than protect Nigeria is paranoid about any form of criticism against the Buhari regime.

“The SSS has continued to expose the country to public and international ridicule over its flagrant violation of the rights of Nigerians and shameless disregard for the rule of law and democratic ethos.

“The SSS will not be allowed to turn Nigeria into a police state. We will face them squarely in court. All legal options will be explored to secure the release of Babalola and safeguard his legal and constitutional rights. Tyranny will not win” he concluded.
