Buhari Paid Ransom To Kidnappers – Obasanjo

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of paying ransoms to kidnappers.

The president has publicly spoken against the payment of ransom, warning governors against encouraging bandits and kidnappers through negotiation.

But speaking when he played host to members of Tiv professionals Group (TPG) at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Wednesday, the ex-president said not just the government of Buhari but that of former President Goodluck Jonathan negotiated with kidnappers, though they deny doing so.

“Government has always paid ransom. Not only this government, even during Jonathan (administration). They paid ransom, but they deny it,” he said.

Neither Jonathan nor Buhari has responded to the claim by Obasanjo.

Obasanjo, however, asked the government to develop a means to deal with kidnappers and bandits as against ransom payment.

The former President equally insisted that fighting insecurity to a standstill requires a “carrot and stick” approach.

“Some people are still reaching out, and hoping that lives can still be saved. But a situation whereby anybody thinks paying ransom is the way out, that person is folly. He is a folly. This is because when you pay ransom, you encourage. But if you are not going to pay ransom, you must have the means to deal heavily with it. You must have the stick to deal with it,” he said.

Amidst Security Unrest, Borno State Governor Leave State And Finally Hands Over Power To His Deputy

Amidst the numerous spates of terrorism and Fulani bandits attack, reports has it that Borno state governor, Governor Babagana Zulum, has handed power over to his deputy, Umar Kadafur, to serve as acting governor from April 29 to May 19.


It came after lawmakers in Borno gave approval for Deputy Governor Umar to serve in that capacity after Zulum made the request in a letter dated April 26.


This is coming amidst reports that an Army commanding officer and seven soldiers were reportedly killed when Boko Haram insurgents affiliated to the Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) attacked two Army bases in Borno State on Sunday May 2nd.


The terrorist group attacked a base in Ajiri, about 20 kilometres (12 miles) away from Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, according AFP.
A similar attack had been carried out earlier on Saturday night when the insurgents hit a base in Rann in the same state, the military sources said.

Whether the move by the governor is the right one waits to be justified.

Getting killed by Kidnappers or bandits Is a sure way to Paradise – Islamic Cleric


An Islamic cleric has advised Muslims in the country to desist from paying ransom to kidnappers.The cleric who is also the deputy chief Imam of the National Mosque, says paying ransom to criminals is not permitted in Islam .The cleric, Professor Ibrahim Maqari, is one of the well respected Islamic scholars in Nigeria.


An Islamic cleric and deputy chief Imam of the National Mosque, Abuja, Professor Ibrahim Maqari has said that Islam does not permit Muslims to pay money as ransom to enemies they are at war with. Professor Maqari made the comment at this year’s Ramadan tafsir monitored by Daily Nigerian on Monday, May 3 in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.


“Since Allah has forbidden the payment of money to an enemy who is at war with you, in order not to empower them to continue to fight you, then contributing money as ransom for the release of kidnapped persons, is haram (prohibited).” The cleric further said applying the Islamic provisions can effectively address the challenges of kidnapping currently affecting society. He said: “But as long as people will continue to give a ransom to secure the release of their loved ones, the recipients of the money will continue to use it to acquire more arms that they will use to perpetrate their atrocity and promote it as a business.” He added that another implication of submitting to kidnappers’ demands is that the vice will grow and be hard for security agents to handle. He posited: “So the best way of stopping it is for the criminal to know that if he kidnaps someone, he can choose to chop his body into pieces but he will not get what he wants.”
He, therefore, advised Muslims that getting killed by kidnappers is a sure way of going to paradise.

Whenever Fulani threaten Igbos with war, I laugh because Fulani has never fought a war with Igbos: Chukwuemeka Ezeife

Whenever Fulani threaten Igbos with war, I laugh because Fulani has never fought a war with Igbos.

The only tribe Fulani can threaten in Nigeria is only Hausa because they conquered them through Jihad.

The Nigerian Civil War was fought between Biafra and Britain.

They should remember that we fought almighty Britain with our locally made weapons for 3 years.

Fulani are just making noise because their brother is in power.

Time will tell!!!

2023 presidentialcandidate: Obasanjo Backs Akinwumi Adesina, Rejects Asiwaju Tinubu

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is currently drumming support for the President of the African Development Bank and former minister, Dr Akinwumi Adesina, to enter the 2023 presidential race.

Obasanjo by his support for Adesina, subtly sidelined a former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, whose ambition is more prominent in the South-West.

Tinubu, despite the barrage of corruption cases on his neck, is working hard through proxies and political godsons to ensure that he gets nationwide support.

It has since started manifesting in the crude exploitation of the poverty situation of Nigerians by the sharing of Tinubu-branded rice bags first in Kano and Borno states.

“Baba’s backing for the AfDB President is predicated on his sound educational, economic and leadership pedigree that he believes can guaranty him easy victory over other recycled politicians with some baggage,” the top politician said.
