    In the last few days, the feud between former Big Brother Nigeria 2018 housemates, Cee-C, Alex and Tobi, has been the talk of the Internet.

    The feud had started from their days on the reality show. For some reason, Tobi couldn’t have control over Cee-C, who he wanted intimacy with at a time. He then shifted attention to Alex, who also became fond of Tobi.

    But since leaving BBNaija, fans of Tobi and Alex have attacked Cee-C while fans of Cee-C have also attacked Tobi and Alex.

    The feud, however, gathered more momentum when a stranger sent a mail to Cee-C, alleging that she paid people to ridicule Tobi and Alex. The stranger also threatened to teach Cee-C a lesson by pouring acid on her face to give her a scar she would never forget.

    Speaking with Sunday Scoop, Alex said she was not surprised when she saw the acid threat on Cee-C’s life.

    She said, “I was not surprised when I saw the acid threat on Cee-C’s life because I get lots of such messages every day. I have preached love to anyone who cares to listen to me and that is the highest I can do. For a while now, I’ve been avoiding social media because of the posts and comments I see online.”

    On inviting Cee-C for a lunch date as a proof that everything is okay, Alex stated, “We really don’t have the time for that; everyone is very busy. I can only try to reach out the way I can.”

    She also said it was normal for people to have their favourites in a reality show and protect them, but they might need to have a rethink on their modus operandi.

  • While speaking at the 30th National Biennial Conference of the Students Christian Movement in Enugu, Professor Yemi Osinbajo blasted gospel preachers who refused to support the Federal Governments' anti-corruption war. 


    Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has berated gospel preachers for failing to lend support to the Federal Government’s anti-corruption war by failing to preach against the scourge.
     
    Speaking at the 30th National Biennial Conference of the Students Christian Movement (SCM) of Nigeria holding in Enugu, Osinbajo
    noted that preachers were preoccupied with preaching prosperity rather than righteousness.
     
    “Very rarely do you hear our preachers talk about corruption from their pulpits. If a nation is not righteous nothing will help it.”
     
    Osinbajo said that the problem with Nigeria was neither ethnicity nor religion but systemic corruption.
     
    He said that corruption had been so entrenched in the country that if you dare challenge it, you will be in the minority.
     
    He, however, challenged the youths to change the narrative and make the difference by checking the impunity of those that had stolen the resources of the country.
     
    “Our problem in this country is not ethnicity or religion; it is not about Christians or Muslims. Our problems are the same wherever you go in this country.
     
    “The story of our country is about good and evil. It is about those that have left us in this condition by stealing our common resources.
     
    “Do not let anyone deceive you.”
     
    The acting president challenged members of SCM to ensure that the movement becomes one of the tools that will move the country forward.
     
    “You should understand that our country can be delivered by people like you.”
     
    According to him, young Christians have special and distinct roles to play in the transformation of the country which is superior to those of other sets of people.
     
    “All of the great nations of the world were transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is not a gospel that tickles people’s imaginations or dwells on prosperity.
     
    “It is not a gospel that fits your fancy. It is a gospel that teaches that righteousness exalts a nation.”
     
    Osibanjo appealed to Nigerians to stand against the plundering of the nation’s resources as well as support the anti-corruption initiative of the Federal Government, irrespective of party affiliations.
     
    Earlier in his address, Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State commended the organisers of the event for a successful convention.
     
    Ugwuanyi said that Christians needed such events in order to seek spiritual reformation and renaissance, considering the situation in the world.
     
    He said that Christians also needed to contribute their quota toward promoting good living among Nigerians.
     
    Ugwuanyi urged Nigerians to continue to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari and for the peace of the nation.
     
    In an address of welcome, the National President of SCM, Rev. Eric Ighalo, commended Osinbajo for honouring their invitation.
     
    Ighalo said that the conference was about active involvement of youths in reversing the problems that had held the country down through dialogue, collaboration and contention.

  • A farmer at Rigasa community, whose farm was located along the route where the incident occurred, told reporters that gunshots were heard during the battle. 



    [Image: nigeria-police_large.jpg]
    There was confusion in Jankasa village of Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Saturday when suspected armed bandits ambushed a team of police officers killing four of them.

    The incident occurred on Saturday morning when a team of policemen went into a bush in the area to carry out a special operation.

    There had been reports that some kidnappers reside in the area.

    The police officers were said to be from the I‎ntelligence Response Team of the Nigerian Police Force headquarters in ‎Abuja.

    A farmer at Rigasa community, whose farm was located along the route where the incident occurred, told PREMIUM TIMES that gunshots were heard during the battle.

    “I was about to visit my farm when we heard gunshots. We also saw smoke coming from a Fulani community that was close to the farm,” the farmer who identified himself as Aliyu told PREMIUM TIMES.

    “I heard that four policemen were killed during the shootout. In fact, I decided not to proceed to the farm for fear of the unknown.”


    PREMIUM TIMES also learnt that residents of Rigasa trooped out in large numbers to have a glimpse of Fulani women who were seen leaving the bush after the attack.

    “All their huts were set ablaze by the security agents during the operation. Smoke covered everywhere as we watched the women coming out of the bush,”
     another resident who identified himself as Anas said.

    ‎The Kaduna Police Command Public Relations Officer, Yakubu Sabo, confirmed the casualty.
     
    “The information reaching us is that we lost the four personnel during an ambush at a village called Jankasa. But we are still gathering facts about the incident which will indicate what actually happened there,”
     he said.

    He also said the police officers were from Abuja and were at the bush to carry out a special operation. ‎

    Mr Sabo said additional security was deployed to the area on Saturday to ensure the attackers were apprehended.

    According to him, the operation is still ongoing in the bush where the incident occurred.

    PREMIUM TIMES recently reported how a a popular Islamic cleric, Ahmad Algarkawy, was abducted in the area where Saturday’s ambush occurred.

    He has since been released by his captors amidst reports that ransom was paid. The police, however, said they were not aware that ransom was paid before the cleric was freed.

    Insisting that he would keep his promise to spend only a tenure in office, Atiku said: “My own case will be different.
     
    "I have said this before on my own initiative. I believe in it. If I am elected as the President in 2019, I give an undertaking that I would only do one term.
     
    "Having said that, let me remind Nigerians that Buhari also gave such an undertaking in 2011, but he is not living up to it today. My own case will be different. I am prepared to sign an undertaking to do only one term.
     
    “I am not Muhammadu Buhari. I do not make promises I cannot keep. I am assuring Nigerians that I will keep this promise. I am making it out here in the open.
     
    "I am willing to sign a written document. If you or any other Nigerian can come up with an iron-clad legal document that binds me, I am willing to publicly commit to it.”

  • A Nassarawa state lawmaker has fortunately escaped disaster after a huge tree fell on his car, destroying it. 
    [Image: ibrahim%205.jpg]
    A State lawmaker, Hon. Kabiru Ibrahim Dallah, who is lucky to be alive after escaping tragedy yesterday evening, can’t seem to contain his excitement and the reason is obvious. 

    According to Hon. Dallah, he was trying to reverse his car yesterday at Project Quarters in Lafia, Nassarawa state capital before a big tree fell on it while he was still inside.

    Dallah, a member representing Nasarawa South and a strong critic of his state governor, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, shared pictures of his car which was destroyed by the tree as he celebrated his survival.

    He took to Facebook to write;

    This is how it happened last night, whilst I was trying to reverse after Adams was out of the car at Project Quarters, Lafia.

    This very big tree fell on my car and I was inside but Allah speared my life for futuristic purpose.

    They came for me but it was too, Allah will continue to spear our lives to be chastising bad governance in Nasarawa State

    The widow of a Nigerian man who died following a confrontation with border officers on a flight  is "heartbroken" and hoping for details about the circumstances that led to her husband's death.

    The man was on board a KLM flight destined for Amsterdam when he was involved in an altercation with two Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers who were trying to remove him from Canada.

    The altercation took place prior to takeoff. The plane was forced to return to the gate, where the Calgary police airport unit was called to the scene.

    Officers found the 49-year-old in medical distress. He was rushed to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    Documents from the refugee board and lawyer for the man's family have identified him as 49-year-old Bolante Idowu Alo.

    Elias Munshya, a lawyer who is representing Alo's family, said they are still processing the news. He spoke to Alo's widow, who lives in Lagos, Saturday, and one of his brothers, who lives in the U.S., Friday.

    "It is very sad," Munshya said. "A normal death itself is very heartbreaking and devastating for the family, but knowing that he died under these circumstances — that are unclear at the moment — is really much more devastating."

    Alo first arrived in Canada in 2005, making a refugee claim at Fort Eerie, according to a detention hearing transcript obtained from the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada Immigration Division.

    His refugee claim was closed and reopened over the years, and he filed humanitarian and compassionate applications, followed by an appeal for a judicial review. All claims were denied.

    Munshya attended Evangel Christian Assembly Church in Calgary with Alo. He described him as a good guy, who sung in the choir and frequently attended prayers. He worked as a taxi driver and also worked for a fellow church member.

    "I knew that he was a very hard worker.… He was a good guy, and so it was very sad to learn he had passed on," he said.

    Alo was being detained in advance of his deportation as CBSA officers believed he likely wouldn't appear voluntarily for his flight, due to comments he made saying he wouldn't allow himself to be removed from Canada.

    During the July 26 detention hearing, Alo told officials one of his brothers had been killed in Nigeria and that he still had bullets in his body from his time in the country.

    Munshya didn't know the exact details of Alo's refugee claim as of Saturday, but said the man spoke often about his family and his desire to officially become a Canadian one day.

    An interview between the man and the High Commission of Nigeria recounted in the transcript noted that "[his] removal would likely be violent and advised CBSA to take caution."

    But Alo said he worked full-time in Canada and would continue to show up to CBSA hearings if they would reconsider his case.

    "This is a life and death issue," Alo said during his hearing, according to the transcript. "I'm not asking for money, I'm not asking for housing, I'm not asking for medical help, all I'm asking for is please, your honour, save my life."

    An autopsy performed Wednesday did not confirm Alo's cause or manner of death, and police said further testing could take up to six months. 

    "It will be prudent for us and for the family to hear what happened from the CBSA officers, in order for them to process the pain and what they are going through," said Munshya. "We will be making inquiries, sending queries in order for them to at least have closure regarding what happened."

    Police are still interviewing witnesses and are looking to speak to "everybody and anybody" who was on the flight or who may have seen something. They are also working with authorities in the Netherlands to conduct interviews with the flight's passengers.

    Munshya said the community plans to hold prayers in Alo's memory sometime in the next week or two.

    "Of course the family is very heartbroken and they want to know what happened. They want to know the circumstances under which he died.

    "And I think they deserve to know."

    Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Saturday challenged the Muhammadu Buhari Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to end its silence and speak out on their evident complicity in the corrupt amassing of the N21 billion, guns and thousands of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) allegedly found in the residence of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ally, the sacked Director General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Lawal Daura.

    The party said the discovery has not only exposed the shameless hypocrisy of the Buhari Presidency, but also stripped it of all integrity and brought its deceptive saintly posturing to a disgraceful end.

    “The world can now see that the PDP has not been raising a false alarm when it alerts that the Buhari Presidency has been using its much hyped fight against corruption and sustained harassment of opposition as a cover to divert public attention from the humongous stealing going on under President Buhari’s official cover.

    “Nigerians have now seen that while the Buhari Presidency and the APC have been hounding and harassing opposition members with trumped-up corruption charges to create an impression of integrity and fight against corruption, their agents have been busy frittering away, and warehousing trillions of Naira, ostensibly for their 2019 re-election and service their wasteful lifestyles, while millions of compatriots wallow in abject poverty across the nation. ”

    “I, Lawal-Yahaya Gumau, want you to know that the mandate that will be given to me on Saturday (today) is to go and protect Buhari’s interest in the Senate. This is the only mandate that I will be going to the Senate with, having fulfilled every other mandate to the best of my ability while in the House of Representatives for eight years.

    “By God’s grace, we will amend Nigeria’s Constitution to allow Buhari to be President for the remaining years of his life. He will only cease to be President when God takes his life.

    “Obasanjo tried all his best for the constitution to be amended to allow him go for a third term, but God didn’t approve of it because of its lack of sincerity. What is now needed in Nigeria is to protect Buhari’s interest and that is what we will do.

    “Our message is simple; the acting President is seriously worried about what is going on in Bauchi State and he told us to tell you that with all the love being shown to Bauchi State by the President, it will be a shameful and disgraceful thing for us in the north for President Buhari to raise the hand of someone and the person loses that election.”

    Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, Friday said those plotting to overthrow the leadership of the National Assembly are enemies of the country’s democracy.

    He urged the persons behind the plot to take a close look at the country’s constitution as well as Senate rules to be properly guided. 

    In a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, Ortom said though the election of a President of the Senate requires simple majority, removing the holder of the office takes two-thirds of the entire Senate members.

    Ortom described the attacks on Senate President Bukola Saraki, including moves for his impeachment and threats to freeze his accounts as “unfortunate developments which must be condemned and resisted by all patriots.”

    He said Saraki has demonstrated uncommon capacity to lead the Senate, pointing out that the Senate President has done nothing wrong in defecting from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

    The governor wondered why those who defect from APC become targets for victimisation by the Federal Government agencies while those who move from other political parties to the ruling party are celebrated as ‘saints.’

    Saraki to APC National Chairman: You’re Garrulous and Tactless…a Million of Oshiomhole Cannot Remove Saraki as Senate President

    “It is rather surprising that Mr. Adams Oshiomhole is behaving like a rain-beaten chicken, crying all over the place about Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, as if the Senate President is the apparition haunting his life and the sinking ship that he captains. 

    “Having decided not to join the pigs in rolling in the dirt; we would not like to be involved in any meaningless exchange with the demagogue now in charge of APC. However, because he…

    “Alas, we found that instead of addressing any issue raised by the Senate President, his press conference merely showcased his obsession and those of his sponsors with Saraki’s removal, which he did without any decorum befitting of his age or his awarded office. He brimmed with hate, hurled abuses, threw tantrums, told lies, huffed, puffed. In the end, he said nothing.

    “We hereby assure this garrulous, tactless and reckless APC chairman that a million of Adams Oshiomhole cannot remove Saraki as Senate President. His illegal plots, can only feed his insatiable ego and keep him awake at nights. But it will remain an exercise in futility.”

    While you are struggling to pay your kids school fees in Naija, Their kids went to Foreign Universities

    “Buhari and Saraki’s children went to foreign universities. You are still struggling to pay school fees in Naija and also pay house rent. But your preoccupation has been the removal of Saraki as Senate president.

    “Oshiomhole doesn’t have a child in school. Even if he has, he is more than capable. And l ask you – how does that pay your children school fees? Since Saraki has been Senate president, has he been the one paying your medical bills or house rent? So, how would his removal change your status? 

    I just pity my people. Both the APC and PDP Senators, are they not all collecting their monthly N13.5 million? Did they give you out of it? Don’t they still use their siren and police escorts to drive us out of the way? When they were fixing their children in CBN, NNPC and others through secret recruitment, did they remember you?

    nofiok Luke, the Speaker of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, has alleged that the Presidency offered him N2 billion and the deputy governorship slot to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the All Progressives Congress, APC.

    Luke spoke during a solidarity rally for the State Governor, Udom Emmanuel and Senator from the state, Bassey Albert in Uyo, the state capital.

    The Speaker noted that he would rather quit politics than defect to the APC.

    According to Luke, “They said the President had sent words for me to become the deputy governor. They offered me N2bn, but I said no. If you like, offer me N10bn, mine is no.

    Speaking on the defection of former Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, Luke said the action was borne out of personal interest.

    He insisted that the defection was aimed at grabbing and sharing power.

    “They have no plan for us and no plans for the future of our state. It was all about them. It was only about power grabbing and power-sharing, but by God’s amazing grace, we will overcome them,” Luke said.

    A 17-year-old girl, Ramatu Tafida, has cut off the manhood of her 25-year-old boy friend, Mr Abdullahi Sabo, in Jigawa, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence (NSCDC) has said.

    AC Adamu Shehu, the corps Spokesman in the state, who confirmed this in Dutse on Saturday, said the incident occurred in Babura Local Government Area of the state.

    Shehu said the victim, a resident of Kofar Gabas and a teacher at Government Girls Secondary School Babura engaged under N-Power.

    “The incident occurred on Thursday in Babura when the attention of our officers was drawn by a good Samaritan who informed them that some youths were about to lynch a girl in Kofar Arewa, the residence of the suspect, to revenge for their friend.

    “Immediately the officers swung into action and went to the scene and whisked the girl away to the office for safety, but they still followed her.

    “It was upon reaching the office that we realised what led to the whole matter.

    “Ramlatu confessed to have used a knife to cut off the manhood of her husband-to-be.

    “According to her, Abdullahi is the love of her life and he was even introduced to her family members and has equally given the sum of N30,000 as an introduction fee.

    “And because of that, she was free to be with him almost all the time. As a result they became too intimate that they engaged in sexual relationship.

    “However, Ramlatu later learnt that the victim has planned to dump her for another girl since he has already known her as a woman. And that was what made her to plan and execute her attack,”
     he said.

    Sheu said that the suspect further confessed that it was while they were together and about to start their usual affair that she confronted the victim with the issue and he responded in the affirmative.

    “And already, she had a knife with her without his knowledge which she brought out and chopped off his manhood.

    “After committing the offence, she ran to her parent’s house to inform her mother. And It was while she was there that the youths stormed the house.


    The spokesman said that after knowing the situation, the officers rushed to the scene and took the victim to Babura General Hospital for medical attention.

    The victim was later referred to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital in Kano.

    Sheu said that the suspect had already been charged to court and remanded in prison until Sept. 6 for further hearing.

  • A News Agency of Nigeria correspondent monitoring reported that the election was marred by political thugs going from one polling unit to another to perpetrate fraud.[Image: Election.JPG]The bye-election to fill the vacant seat in the Lokoja-Kogi Federal Constituency which started on a peaceful note on Saturday was later marred by violence, vote buying and intimidation in Lokoja.

    [size=undefined][size=undefined]
    A News Agency of Nigeria correspondent monitoring reported that the election was marred by political thugs going from one polling unit to another to perpetrate fraud.

    Although policemen and other security agents were seen at the police stations, they looked the other way, while thugs terrorised people.

    At the polling unit at Paparanda Square, voting could not hold as thugs invaded the venue, snatching election materials and beating up people queuing to vote.

    The same scenario played out at polling units at Mary Primary School, Karaworo, Adnakolo and Crowther Secondary School, where thugs also disrupted voting.

    At Adankolo, some thugs threw stones on people queueing to cast their votes at one of the polling units, chasing them away.

    Some of voters who came in their vehicles had their windscreens smashed.

    At St. Peter’s Primary School, Felele, voters were seen receiving N2, 000 each after being certified to have voted for particular candidates.

    Some officials of the Kogi Government could be seen moving from one polling unit to another in convoys, accompanied by heavily armed policemen and other security operatives.

    The Federal Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission in charge of Kogi, Niger and Nasarawa States, Alhaji Mohammed Haruna, has however, said that the election would be cancelled where discrepancies and violence were recorded.
     
    “INEC will review every case of violence, ballot snatching, voter intimidation and vote buying and take appropriate action,’’ he said.

    Haruna stated that the rules guiding conduct of elections in Nigeria were clear, noting that election would be voided at any polling unit where rules had been violated.
