No Anti-Grazing Law In Imo State – Gov. Uzodinma

With just few days to the September 1, 2021 target set by the 17 southern governors for states in the region to enact anti-open grazing legislation, Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has become the first governor from the region to go against the agreement reached with his colleagues.

The governor on Wednesday declared that there is no law forbidding open grazing by cattle rearers in the state.

But in sharp contrast with the agreement reached by the southern governors, Uzodimma said: “I don’t have any law in Imo State for anti-grazing. But what we have done is that we are regulating grazing activities in Imo State under a partnership between our farmers and herders. They have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in my office and agreed to work together. And both parties are going about their businesses without interfering or causing any grievance or anger to each other.”

He also said the recent sit-at-home order given by the Independent People Of Biafra (IPOB) was not carried out in the state, saying people went about their normal businesses.


Stop selling arms to Nigeria, Akintoye, Nwodo, others write US, EU

The Nigerian Indigenous National Alliance for Self-determination has called on the Governments of the United States, Britain, France, Russia, Germany, and other top European and Western Countries to impose heavy sanctions on the Nigerian Government for undermining democracy and continuously abusing human rights.

The group also urged the American Government and European Countries to stop selling arms to the Nigerian Government, alleging that previous arms sold to the Buhari-led regime with borrowed funds have found their way into the hands of herdsmen, Boko Haram, ISIS, and other terrorists that are currently terrorising the Indigenous people of the South and Middle Belt of Nigeria.

This was contained in a statement by the Communications manager to NINAS, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye,

NINAS is the umbrella body of leading regional Self-determination Groups in the South and Middle Belt of Nigeria with Ilana Omo Oodua representing the Yoruba bloc, Lower Niger Congress representing the South-South and South East, and Middle Belt Forum representing the Middle Belt bloc.

The CFM signatories who wrote the petition to the US Government and European Countries, according to the statement included a renowned Historian, Emeritus Professor Banji Akintoye, former President-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo; respected Varsity Don, Prof. Yusuf Turaki, Secretary-General of NINAS, Barr. Tony Nnadi, Pioneer Commissioner for Education in Osun State and National Chairman of Ilana Omo Oodua, Professor Wale Adeniran, amongst others.

Part of the letter read, “We the people of the South and Middle Belt under the aegis of Nigerian Indigenous National Alliance for Self-determination call on you to sanction the government of Nigeria for undermining democratic ethics and abusing people’s rights to live; to own property; to liberty; to dignity; to peaceful assembly and to self-determination.

“The Arms being sold to the Nigerian Government with funds borrowed from your territory are now being used to kill, oppress, harass, intimidate and strangulate harmless protesters and defenseless people of the Southerners


Sunday Igboho Released, Fly to Germany

Sunday Igboho was released after Western diplomats mount pressure on the Benin Republic, fly to Germany

Renowned Yoruba activist, who was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic has been released barely 24-hours after his detention.

Sources say Igboho is already on his way to Germany where he is expected to meet his family members following his release.

Igboho’s release is attributed to Western countries involving Britain, Canada, France, Germany, and the United States mounting intense pressure on the Government of Benin Republic not to hand over Chief Sunday Adeyemo, (Igboho) to the Nigerian authorities.

Ambassadors of Western nations reached out to the Benin Republic authorities, asking them not to hand over Chief Adeyemo to the Nigerian government, arguing on a strong suspicion that Igboho will not get justice if returned to his home country.

“We do not think returning Igboho to Nigeria will set standards for the Benin Republic in line with global human rights best practices’ a diplomat said.

Meanwhile, Mr. Leesi Ebenezer Olarewaju, a lawyer based in the United States who is one of those representing Chief Adeyemo, had earlier showed indications that the Benin Republic will not transfer Igboho to Nigeria

We Can’t Defeat Terrorists With Old Equipment – Nigeria Defence Chief

Nigeria: We Can’t Defeat Terrorists With Old Equipment – Defence Chief

Kaduna — The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor, has said that old tools and military might alone cannot defeat asymmetric warfare like banditry, kidnapping and the Boko Haram insurgency.

Speaking at the Regimental Dinner organised in honour of the graduating students of Senior Course 43 of Armed Forces Command and Staff College yesterday, the CDS said the military had resolved to acquire new platforms and capability to address the nation’s security challenges.

He said long-term success against terrorism, insurgency and other internal security challenges required a whole-of-government approach and not just a military solution.

General Irabor noted that the involvement of the military in containing asymmetric security threats in the past few years had highlighted the need to acquire the new operational capability to deal with the emerging threats.

“Accordingly, we are developing new capabilities in intelligence and surveillance, which are critical for staying ahead of terrorists and insurgents and other criminal elements in the society,” he added.

Addressing the graduating students who are in the rank of Major and mid-level commanders, the CDS said: “As you are aware, asymmetric warfare encourages the use of non-traditional military tactics for which our previous training and operational doctrines were not well suited.

“As junior leaders, you must therefore leverage on training and experience in taking timely decisions for your team, especially when under pressure. I therefore enjoin you all to acquaint yourself adequately and keep abreast with the issues that define your operational environment. Such knowledge is needed for you to be effective in command and provide leadership and guidance for your men,” he said.

He assured that steps were being taken by the upper echelon of the military to address threats.


FG Arrested Foreign Nnamdi Kanu But Couldn’t Defeat Local Bandits – Government Ishaku

Governor of Taraba State Darius Ishaku has lamented heightened insecurity in the country, wondering how federal government could capture leader of Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu in foreign country but cannot deal with bandits who are killing citizens across the country.

Mr Ishaku, who appeared on Channels TV on Wednesday night, said bandits have powerful sponsors who are arming them with weapons and it is the work of Nigerians security agencies to unravel them.

“As a governor, I have asked security operatives these questions during our security meetings. One, how are the insurgents surviving, where do they get AK-47, why is it that they are invisible that they are not being caught?” Mr Ishaku asked.

He added that “If there are no answers to this three questions, then you know that there are sponsors. These are brand new AK-47, how will a local man go buy such an expensive weapon. It is all over the place where somebody was confessing that these guns were being provided to them and they were being trained.”

The Taraba governor further said that if Nigerian security agencies could go after Mr Kanu and arrest him abroad, it should not be an impossible task to combat bandits who are killing Nigerians across the country.

“It is the work of the security agencies to get to the root,” Mr Ishaku said. “If they can go outside this country to arrest people who are declaring for independence, why are they not able to defeat those who are killing our own citizens here in the farms?” There is more to it that meets the eye.

Asked what is the way forward to resolving insecurity problems, Mr Ishaku said “If we put our foot down that this problems should be erased in three months, it would go,” adding that Nigeria has brilliant security agencies that could tackle insecurity.


Illegal Abduction Of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,Kenya Government Has Committed Extraordinary Rendition By Chinonso Igwebuike Mbah.

It is shear ignorance that makes the rat to challenge the cat to a battle,the government of Kenya has proven to be the rat,and from the day they illegally abducted Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,they have set the stage for their own destruction,the volcano angers of Biafrans will soon consume them,that in their next generation they will never toy with the law of extradition rendition.

Nnamdi Kanu

The illegal kidnapped,abduction,torture and dehumanization of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by Kenya government is an act of extraordinary rendition,it is an extraordinary rendition in the sense that it’s a government sponsored abduction,the government of Kenya illegally kidnapped Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,kept him incommunicado for eight days without extradition rendition,haven negotiated with Nigerian government that place hundred million bound on his head,he was smuggle into Nigeria where he will face high risk of torture or abuse in interrogations,that singular act has proven to humanity that Kenya government has committed extraordinary rendition,the have violated the international law of extradition rendition.

For avoidance of doubt Extraordinary rendition, also called irregular rendition or forced rendition, is a government-sponsored abduction and extrajudicial transfer of a person from one country to another with the purpose of circumventing the former country’s laws on interrogation,detention, extradition and/or torture.

The illegal abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which was carried out by Kenya and Nigeria government requires the interventions of foreign common wealth of nations,British government whom mazi Nnamdi Kanu belong as a citizen has to intervene and prosecute Kenya and Nigeria government in ICC for breaking the international constitutions that governs the common wealth and committee of nations in U.N,the has to be a high level of international diplomatic foreign sanction against Kenya and Nigeria government for committing extraordinary rendition.

United Nations,ICC and Amnesty International should investigate and persecute Kenya government for violation of extradition rendition,the government of Nigeria must be interrogated,they must explain to the world how mazi Nnamdi Kanu was abducted,this case must be taken serious by United Nations to avoid any occurrence in the future,the likes of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Presidency Muhammad Buhari must be used as an escape goat,this two renowned tyranny are international kidnappers,they are threat to democracy.

The government of Kenya must be persecuted for violation of international constitution that governors common wealth nations,the silence of United Nations and other human rights organizations over this treacherous act is annoying,U.N as a matter of urgent must rise up and protect their constitution,the perpetrators of this international heinous crime must not go scot free,on no account should United Nations and ICC leave any stone unturned.

International human rights organizations around the world should demand for the persecution of Kenya government together with their Nigeria counterpart,justice to white people should be justice to black people,Mazi Nnamdi Kanu deserve nothing but justice from United Nations,they should order for his unconditional release from Nigeria dungeon.






Yoruba Global Council Slams FG: Says Provocative Attack On Igboho Done To Kill Agitation For Yoruba Nation

Yoruba diaspora socio-cultural organization,Yoruba Global Council, (YGC) has condemn in its entirety, the violent attack on the agitation for Yoruba nation frontliner, Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho on Thursday morning, describing the attack as provocative, barbaric and deliberate act to suppress the growing agitation for a Yoruba nation.

In a statement issued by its spokesperson, Prof Lere Amusan on Friday, the group said with the DSS revealing it organised the attack under the guise of seeking out stockpiled arms, it may not be out of order to conclude that, considering the desperation with which the attack was staged, Sunday Igboho could as well been killed if found during the operation.

Sunday Adeyemo Igboho Osaaa

Registering that the reason given for the attack by the DSS was not convincing enough, YGC said ”it is baffling that herders who are known to be custodians of illegal arms even with Miyettiallah its leadership known to government, are not accused of stockpiling arms, ”rather it is the peaceful Igboho government consider too dangerous and deserve such unwarranted ,violent sting operation where lives were lost”

Declaring that it is obvious, by the Thursday morning attack that the primary mission of government, in tandem with the greedy politicians in the Southwest is to suppress the growing agitation for the sovereignty of the Yoruba states from the existing country Nigeria, YGC red established its concerns over shrinking civic space, lingering social injustice and the dwindling democratic values in Nigeria.

”The attack on Igboho where lives were lost and many arrested, has exposed the fact that Nigeria is miles away from acceptable democratic norms”, even as it warned on what it said could be the dare consequences of the attack on the fragile peace in the country.

The group, while reaffirming its support for the agitation for a Yoruba nation, stressed that Igboho should not be seen as a threat by any system that is fair, sincere, progressive and democratic.

It also warned that should the provocative attacks continue unchecked, the southwest may become another field for violence like its being witnessed in some other parts of the country, adding that, the world has become so civilised , that it is needless to spill blood before agitating nations are granted sovereignty.

Describing the times as very challenging for the race, the group charged all Yoruba ” sons and daughters to come together at this crucial time, to demonstrate transparent unity that will send the ultimate signal, that securing Yoruba nation sovereignty is not negotiable”


Stay off Lagos, police warn Igboho, Akintoye…‘We won’t allow any rally for now’’

Lagos State Commissioner of Police Hakeem Odumosu has warned that no rally, under whatever guise, will be allowed to hold in the state. He, therefore, warned Sunday Igboho and Banji Akintoye to stay away from the state.

Odumosu, who addressed reporters Thursday, warned the agitators and their followers against staging the planned July 3rd rally as anyone caught participating or facilitating the rally would be dealt with within the ambit of the law.

According to Odumosu, intelligence shows that some disgruntled elements have perfected plans to infiltrate the protesters and cause more mayhem. He added that information had gotten to the knowledge of the command that the organisers’ foot-soldiers and mobilisers have concluded plans to embark on procession on the streets of Lagos as part of programmes for the mega rally.

He said: “It has come to the knowledge of the command that the rally, arranged to hold at Gani Fawehimi Freedom Park in Ojota, Lagos, has been planned by some other yet-to-be identified groups to simultaneously hold at Lekki Toll Gate, Ikoyi, Iyana-Ipaja, Ikeja, Surulere, Ikorodu and other areas. This, if allowed, could be a fatal ground for anarchy.

“Intelligence also reveals that one Elewe-Omo, a transport union leader in Ibadan, Oyo State, has perfected plans to attack organisers of the rally as a reprisal for the death of one of his followers allegedly killed by one of Igboho’s group.

“The cumulative effect of all these is a threat to law and order. The command will not watch and allow disgruntled elements truncate the peace being enjoyed in the state.

“Lagos State cannot afford to experience any security lapses, breakdown of law and order, and threat to public peace at the moment, considering the negative effects and reoccurring agonies of the October 2020 #Endsars crisis that led to massive destruction of public and private facilities, and some police personnel paying the supreme price. This is in addition to many police stations, barracks, officers’ personal properties that were burnt.

“The command is still going through those harrowing experiences, and it will not be cajoled by the so-called organisers that the rally will be peaceful. That was the same slogan adopted by organisers of the #Endsars protest which eventually snowballed into crises with attendant destruction of lives and properties.

“The police will not submit to their antics. Recall that on June 12, there was a rumored stay-at-home order purported to have been issued by a group, which was immediately debunked by the command.

“On this note, the command reaffirms that on no account will any actual or rumored activity, including the said planned mega rally, be allowed to lockdown the state or hinder the people’s daily activities.

“The command hereby appeals to the people, especially Lagosians, to shun the rally, while parents and guardians are urged to discourage their children and wards from participating therein.”

Odumosu urged the people to go about their normal daily activities as the police and other security agencies have put measures in place to provide adequate and water-tight security for all.

Commissioner for Information and Strategy Gbenga Omotoso said the while the government was not against rallies in a democratic setting, the state ‘is not ripe for any rally to take place now’.

He noted that the state is still smarting from the negative impacts of the #EndSARS protests and would not allow any repeat of such tragic incident in the state.

He said: “I implore all those who are organising the rally to please take note that nobody is saying they shouldn’t hold a rally or protest, nobody is saying you shouldn’t march, but the timing is not right.

“Lagos is still feeling the pains of the last October #EndSARS protests that started peacefully and ended in violence, violence on a scale that we have never witnessed before, one that was beyond belief.

“So this is why we have come here today, to let you know that Lagos is not against this rally but, at this point in time, anybody who has the intention to join the rally should shelve it in the interest of the public and the state. The scare of #EndSars is still visible, and we advise the organisers to shelve it because the law will take its course. The government of Lagos is not against rally; we are democrats. People have the right to protest, but we are saying it is not good for us at this time.”


Yes, I Was Inside When They Came, They Killed Two Guys”- Igboho Narrated How His House Was Invaded

Yoruba Nation Agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has revealed how his house was invaded by armed men in the early hours of Thursday.

It was earlier reported that the residence of the activist at Soka, Ibadan, was attacked by gunmen who came in military uniform.

Igboho, who spoke with BBC Pidgin, disclosed that he was inside when everything happened. He revealed that he heard plenty of bullets and gunshots in his compound.

According to the ighoho, he said he peeped through the window and saw men in DSS uniform and soldiers. He added that the attack came as a surprise as he hasn’t killed nor fight anyone.

He stated that all his rallies have been peaceful and he is fighting all the bandits that had killed, raped, kidnapped his family, and demanded a ransom in return. According to him, he said he took up the responsibilities of the government who failed to fight for the right of the citizens.

“Yes, I was in the house when they came. They killed about two guys. The shooting was too much. They destroyed all my properties, all my vehicles.” Sunday Igboho concluded.
