"I Graduated from Robbing My Father to Keeping Guns for Bandits" -Suspect Narrates

"I Graduated from Robbing My Father to Keeping Guns for Bandits" -Suspect Narrates Officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have arrested and paraded a 20-year-old suspect, Abubakar Sani, in connection to the crime of banditry. The Spokesperson for the Katsina State Command of the NSCDC, Muhammed Adbara, made some revelations concerning the suspect while addressing the press.
The NSCDC has emphasized that it will not relent in protecting the lives and properties of Nigerians in various parts of the country. You may recall that the security agency had reportedly apprehended suspected bandits in previous months. NSCDC has since paraded more suspects in connection to banditry. Speaking while parading Abubakar at the Katsina State command, Adbara said, "Upon investigation and interrogation, the suspect willingly confessed that he is guilty of the allegations. The suspect confessed that he started his life of crime by stealing from his father." Adbara also revealed that the suspect willingly confessed to having been involved in cattle rustling with a gang of five other members. He added that the suspect and his gang used sophisticated weapons such as AK-47 to terrorize a village in Jibia LGA. The suspect also confirmed that he was invited by some bandits to join them for an operation, but he refused. Abubakar said he later discovered that the bandits had abducted three people from the same village where he was invited to go for an operation. Abubakar added that he was eventually entrusted with an AK-47 rifle to keep for the bandits. The suspect confessed during an interview that he started stealing in his father's house before graduating to bigger crimes.
Adbara assures that the suspect will be charged to court.

Some Bandits Have Been Arrested, And Many Weapons Also seized As The JTF Keep Bombing Their Hideouts

Some Bandits Have Been Arrested, And Many Weapons Also seized As The JTF Keep Bombing Their Hideouts It is no longer a new development that the federal military troops have been launching both aerial and ground strikes on the bandits in their forest hideouts in Zamfara State since the past few days. And the operations have been leading up to expectations. This is as many of the criminals have been killed in the same vein that their shelters and strongholds have fallen into ruins and ash from being razed down. It all started as the bandits tended to go out of control with their increasing dreadful daily attacks on the society and the citizens. By so doing they Kidnapped, killed, destroyed and robbed with delight. And as they continue to wreck havocs on others, they have seemingly adopted three modus operandi. They are: 1.) Frequent invasions of schools and kidnapping of students without regards to their age and cadre as they have raided and kidnapped even primary schools and their pupils! 2..) Attacking government-owned facilities. Examples are their shooting down of one of the country"s fighter aircrafts as it was merely flying pass their hideout in the forest. Another was the recent attack on the highly reverred Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) in Kaduna. In this incident, they reportedly killed two Military officers, injured two with gunshots and took one hostage, and have not yet released him till now. 3.) Specifically assassinating Military personnel. Examples are: Major General Hassan Ahmed who was shot dead in Abaji, Abuja, and Captain Abdulrahim Bala Na'AlIah whom they strangled to death in his bedroom in GRA, Malia district of Kaduna. The list of the recent unlawful and inhuman activities of the bandits is inexhaustible. And as government has been clamping down on them directly in their Zamfara forest hideouts and strongholds, scores of them have been Killed, many injured and some arrested, albeit a handful of others allegedly escaped. Another major success that has been recorded by the Military forces is the recovery of many weapons of assorted types during their sustained onslaughts on the bandits' hideouts
An image of some of the arrested bandits and the assorted weapons recovered from them But the question now as some members of the public have been asking is, "what difference does it make to arrest the bandits when they will also be set free in the guise of granting them amnesty like the Boko Haram terrorists?" So, now that some of the diehard criminals have been captured, what is the next line of action?

Buhari Arrives Imo As Residents Comply With IPOB's Initial Sit-At-Home Directive

Buhari Arrives Imo As Residents Comply With IPOB's Initial Sit-At-Home Directive Just few minutes ago, the president of the Federation, His Excellency, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, arrived Owerri, Imo State. It was gathered that his flight landed in Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport in Owerri, Imo State. Buhari was dressed in the Isi Agu Igbo native attire and was welcomed by few of the elders in the state, were many security operatives were present. On Saturday, Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari would visit the state on Thursday, to address some political issues and some critical matters.
In other hand, the Indigenous People of Biafra had stated that the group kicked against Buhari's visit to the state and told residents and supporters to stay at home.
Earlier, one of the IPOB executives, Mazi Chika Edoziem, declared Thursday as a Sit-at-home protest over Buhari's visit in a broadcast on Monday. In his words, "the Nigeria’s president is not welcomed into Imo State, Biafra Land on Thursday.” Sahara Reporters confirmed that residents of state, Owerri precisely fully complied with the directive given by IPOB leaders. I think this order from the IPOB's is not acceptable, because the president visiting the state has nothing to do with IPOB or Nnamdi Kanu's detention. What's your say on this?

We Killed The Former Governor's Father After Collecting The 10 Million Naira Ransom" - Suspect The death of the late father of Plateau State's former Governor has been a painful one for the relations of the former Governor named Joshua Dariye.
In recent reports, those who were involved in the death of he patriarch of the former Governor were paraded by men of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF). During the parade, one of the suspects said, "we killed the former Governor's father after collecting the ten (10) million naira ransom." Frank Mba, an Officer of the Nigerian Police Force who interviewed these suspects asked why the innocent old man was killed. In response to this, one of the suspects said the man who ordered them to kidnap him told them that the former Governor did not create jobs for the youths of the state. This was the basis of the kidnap which eventually led to the death of Pa Defwan Dariye. Frank Mba, the Public Relations Officer, said that people should be very careful because those who were caught made it clear that they have insiders who feed them with the necessary information before their mission is carried out.

My mum became an alcoholic because she couldn't support Ellena and all she could do was drive her about and work as a househelp for other people while collecting her salary. There were times when her boss would force himself on her at night in front of his children. Nobody knew what Ellena was going through. If she was allowed to come home, she would resist, but her mother would compel her, and she would return home broken-hearted. So, she chose to return home, but her mother would always take her to other houses so that she could make money. Ellena has worked as a housekeeper since she was a small girl, and continues to do so. Eventually, she was able to escape at the age of 17 and decided to find a job because her mother used to steal all the money and leave her nothing. The housemaid is still hoping to accomplish her dream of becoming an actress, despite the fact that she did not have the opportunity to attend school. Moreover, she has asked parents to always pay attention to their children and pay attention when they speak in order to avoid a similar incident.

Speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) over the incident, Ustaz, Abdullah Hamman, an Islamic Scholar in Yola, said forceful marriage has no place in Islam. ”According to Islam, parents have rights to choose for their children a good family to marry from but at same time, Islam does not encourage forced marriages,” Hamman said. He stressed the need for the parents to desist from forcing their children into marriage saying, such practice was causing a lot of harm in the society. NAN also reports that a family source, who pleaded to remain anonymous, said: “the girl demanded that her late husband divorce her peacefully since she was not interested in the marriage.

List Of Nigerian Female Armed Robbers Who Were Arrested By The Nigerian Police

List Of Nigerian Female Armed Robbers Who Were Arrested By The Nigerian Police
Female armed robbers exist, and they live among us in our societies. Some of them are people's mothers, sisters, wives, and children. Unfortunately for some of them, they ended up being arrested by the Nigerian police after their robbery operations failed. Today, we will be looking at the two notorious female armed robbers than have been arrested by the police in the past. 1. Comfort Okon. This notorious female armed robber was arrested in June 2017 in Imo state after her gang's failed attempt at robbing the residents of the 7up depot in Orlu Local Government Area of the state.

The police got to the scene of the robbery and engaged the suspects in a gun battle. After the hours-long gun battle, one of the robbers was killed while the gang leader was arrested. Surprisingly, the gang leader turned out to be a woman, Comfort Okon.

She and her gang members specialized in robbing people in Lagos traffic, terrorising areas like Mushin, Ikotun and Igando. Yetunde and her gang were arrested by the anti crime patrol team from the Mushin police station led by Inspector Atigi Agisa.

Plateau Attacks: 2 Policies That Their Introduction Could End The Incessant Killings In The State

Plateau Attacks: 2 Policies That Their Introduction Could End The Incessant Killings In The State
The level of incessant attacks and killings in Plateau state is no longer news to the public. It should be recalled that within the last 30 days, there have been reports of several attacks and killings in the state. Apart from the recent wave of attacks and killings, the state appears to have become the metaphorical slaughter slab due to its past records of violent clashes that have claimed the lives of several people. There is no doubt that the police have made several arrests in connection with the attacks and killings in Plateau state. Sadly, this has not been able to bring the problem to an end. As such, it has become necessary to adopt other methods in handling the issue. In my view, there is the need to introduce two new policies in the fight against the barbaric attacks and wanton killings in Plateau State. These two policies are discussed below as:  
1. Capital punishment It is arguable that even those that kill other people do not wish to die. As such, the introduction of capital punishment as a sanction for anyone that engages in violent attacks or killings in the state, would go a long way to serve as a deterrent. You will agree with me that if the killers were aware that what awaits them, if caught, is death, many of them would refrain from carrying out such violent attacks and killings as we are witnessing in Plateau state.   2. Extension of punishment to the suspect's loved ones. There is no doubt that even the killers always pray for the safety of their loved ones. Therefore, in order to instil fear in them, and compel them to refrain from carrying out criminal attacks and killings, whatever sanction that is to be meted out on anyone convicted for attacks and killings, should be equally extended to their family members.
It is often said that the greatest instrument for the control of human behaviour is fear. Arguably, the fear that if caught in the act, family members and loved ones could be negatively affected, would go a long way in persuading many of the killers behind the attacks in Plateau state to refrain. Therefore, I strongly believe that if these two policies can be introduced, they could be instrumental in ending the incessant attacks and killings in Plateau state.

30 People Killed In New Attack, “We Will Be Chased Out Of Abuja” – Amaechi

30 Killed In Attacks
Three ballistic missiles were fired at Al Anad Air Base in Lahij Governorate, southern Yemen during a morning queue of Saudi coalition troops on Sunday. So far, no official statement has been issued on these attacks and no group or individual has claimed responsibility. Reuters news agency and some Arab media sources reported minutes before the death toll from the rocket and drone strikes on the Al Anad Air Base had risen to 30. Sky News also announced the news. The Arab media quoted a Yemeni military spokesman as saying that 30 had been killed and 60 others wounded in the attacks so far. Earlier, Crater Sky reported that at least two military forces were killed and 19 others were injured in the attack, and the wounded were taken to Ibn Khaldun Hospital for treatment. Local residents reported that the sound of loud explosions has been heard. UAVs and missiles were used in the attack on the military base on Sunday, local news sources said. If We Are Not Careful, We’ll Be Chased Out Of Abuja – Amaechi
Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation, has accused the political elites of burning the resources of Nigeria, saying such may have dire consequences. In an interview with Daily Trust, the minister said President Muhammadu Buhari is doing his best to put the country on track. The two-term governor of Rivers said the high wave of insecurity as a result of hardship may have effect on the nation’s capital. “What the president is saying is: let us create infrastructure. The president would ask how we feel when we get to Cape Town. You will be ashamed being a Nigerian because the political elites have burnt our resources and not able to put infrastructures on ground.” “The only thing you will hear of Nigeria is that you should come to Abuja; that it is a fine city. But Abuja does not feed anybody. If we are not careful, we will be chased out of Abuja. “In the past, when I was the speaker and later, governor, I said we would wake up one day and the young boys we deprived would chase us out of town. How many big men are still living in their states? They have all run away. “Everybody is here in Abuja, which is protected because the president is here. One day, the boys will be courageous and we will be on the run. “If we don’t follow what the president is saying by not only diversifying the economy but also putting the necessary infrastructures in place, there will be no need to stay together as Nigerians. “People are saying that secession is the problem, but it is not. There are two reasons for secession —economic deprivation and injustice. Did the injustice start from this government? I was there, so we need to address it. “The North has people who are deprived, just as the South is also deprived, as well as the westerners and easterners. I pray to the Nigerian elite that are leading this crisis of insurrection to be careful because the day the poor people of these regions come together as a people, all of us will run. They can try as much as possible to divide the country, but the day the poor men come together, we will run.”
