A soldier of the Nigerian Army, Lance Corporal Martins, has been arrested after making a video blasting the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, and other security chiefs in the country.

The soldier was arrested on the orders of Buratai, sources revealed to SaharaReporters.

According to the source, the soldier was picked by senior military officers, who said they were acting based on an “order from above”.

Lance Corporal Martins berated the security chiefs of Nigeria for deliberately not acting to stop the incessant killings of Nigerians by terrorists and armed bandits.

In the 12-minute video, the soldier expressed his anger at the security chiefs especially Buratai, and Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin, for not being committed to end the incessant killings of Nigerians by terrorists and armed bandits.

He revealed how the military ordered the illegal detention of some soldiers, who demanded better weapons and ammunition to combat Boko Haram and other terrorist groups in the country.

He stated that though he might be arrested and probably killed for the video, he is ready to sacrifice himself for the country.

Published

on

Controversial Nigerian self acclaimed investigative Journalist, Kemi Olunloyo has said the Igbo youth have low self esteem, are raised to steal and aren’t creative.

She made this known on Wednesday July 15 in a post she shared on her official Twitter page.

Kemi had kicked off a #DaftNigerians hash tag campaign on Twitter, twitting about how “daft” some Nigerians are but she however argued and maintained that when it comes to “Igbo youth”, that theirs is “worst”.

According to her, the Igbo youth are jealous in nature, raised to steal ideas instead of being creative.

To further buttress her point, she cited the copyright situation in the Aba area of Abia State, probably referring to how new and trending original products are replicated, reproduced and repackaged to look like the original, hence the popular name tag “Aba-Made”.

In her words, “Igbo youth are the WORST! They are jealous with low self esteem. They are raised to steal ideas instead of being creative. The copyright situation in Aba should have never been. Many brainwashed by Nnamdi Kanu ideals, many locked up in #PHMax for being IPOB.”

A 71-year-old Ghanaian nanny who was employed to take care of a baby has been arrested after CCTV footages revealed that she has been abusing the child in the absence of his parents.

Abena Yeboah as she has been identified could be seen in one of the footages spanking and hitting the child for reasons best known to her.

After the discovery, she was reported to authorities and an arrest was made by NYPD officers.

Abena who lives in Bronx was hired to take care of the baby in Hackensack.

The Prosecutor’s Office said she was charged with one count of Title 9 child abuse. Officials disclosed that the police in Hackensack was first notified of the alleged abuse on July 8.

Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella who announced her arrest, said;

“During her time as a nanny for the family, she was observed on a nanny camera physically abusing the child by hitting, kicking, and yanking the child by the arm.”

Musella revealed that Yeboah was arrested in the Bronx by New York police after Hackensack police issued a warrant for her. She was taken into custody and is awaiting an extradition hearing.

New Jersey’s Title 9 child abuse statute makes it a fourth-degree crime to inflict “unnecessarily severe corporal punishment” or “unnecessary suffering or pain, either mental or physical,” on a child. People convicted of a fourth-degree crime face up to 18 months in prison.
