Police operatives in Imo State have arrested a notorious native doctor who allegedly prepared charms for members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the state.

The spokesman of the state police command, Bala Elkana, who disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday, said the native doctor, Uzoamaka Ugoanyanwu, was arrested alongside nine other suspects in a bush near Njaba River on June 8.

He said the suspects had confessed to being members of IPOB/ESN, and made useful statements to the police on their involvement in recent attacks on police stations and residence of Governor Hope Uzodinma.

The spokesman said: “In consonance with the mandate given to the operatives of the Command by IGP Alkali Baba Usman to fish out all criminal elements in the state and restore normalcy to the state as soon as feasible, and in tandem with the determination and directive of the Commissioner of Police in Imo State, Abutu Yaro.

“On the 8/6/21 at about 1630 hours, tactical teams of the command through diligent and painstaking investigations, stormed Ukwuorji, Mbaitoli local government area, along Onitsha road and arrested one Ezeugo Ordu “M” 65 years old, a native of Ubachima, Omuma, Oru East LGA.

“He confessed to being a member of IPOB/ESN and made useful statements to the police as regards the recent attacks on police stations as well as the residence of Governor Hope Uzodinma.

“Ordu led police operatives to the IPOB/ESN camp at a bush close to Njaba River where nine persons were arrested while planning another attack. Various assorted charms were recovered from them.

“However, two out of the nine suspects arrested in the hideout, Chinedu Nwakaire aka One Door and Uzoamaka Ugoanyanwu (their native doctor) were identified to be part of the hoodlums that attacked the private residence of Governor Hope Uzodinma and some police stations. They confessed to the crime, and also stated their roles during the operations.”

Twitter Refused To Delete Nnamdi Kanu’s Account – Lai Mohammed

Published

on

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed said Twitter rejected its demand to delete the account of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

He made this known on Tuesday, when he featured on a Radio Nigeria call-in programme.

He said it was unfair to conclude that Twitter was suspended in the country because President Muhammadu Buhari’s message was deleted.
Mohammed accused the microblogging site of consistently offering its platform to promote agenda that were inimical to the corporate existence of Nigeria.

He said; “Twitter has become a platform of choice for a particular separatist promoter.

“The promoter consistently used the platform to direct his loyalists to kill Nigerian soldiers and policemen, run-down INEC offices and destroy all symbols of Nigeria’s sovereignty.

“Every attempt to persuade Twitter to deny its platform to this separatist leader was not taken serious.’’

You Must Safeguard Nigeria, Not Just Borrowing Governor Wike Blast Buhari

Published

on

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari for abandoning his constitutional responsibility of securing Nigerians for governors.

Grassroots reported last week when President Buhari said he told two south-west governors, who came to meet him in Abuja, to return to their states and tackle the security challenges their people are facing.

Reacting to this claim, Wike stated that Buhari cannot shift the responsibility of securing Nigerians to governors when he is the commander-in-chief of the armed forces.

In a statement issued by Kelvin Ebiri, his spokesman, the governor stated that the Buhari administration lacks the strategy to restore peace across the country.

“Mr President, you’re the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. You appoint Inspector General of Police (IG), you appoint the Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Naval Staff, the Commissioner of Police (CP), Director of Department of State Service (DSS) and other heads of security. Which one do we appoint? How can people appointed by Mr. President be under me?” Wike asked.

“It is not only to borrow money for Nigeria that you’re in charge. You must also be in charge of other things including security. Who signed order 10? Is it the governors? It is not when things are going bad concerning security, and you say you’re not in charge, and it becomes governors’ responsibility.

“Mr President should have come out openly and said, my APC governors, stop worrying me. Go back to your states and do your work. On that, I support him.

“Thank God, Mr President knows that I am not one of those that go to visit him over one problem or the other. I, as the governor of Rivers under PDP, you’ll never find me there.”
