Tragedy struck Monday morning as a graduate of Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma, was reportedly killed by suspected herdsmen.
 
The AAU graduate, Miss Ella Williams, was reportedly gunned down by gunmen suspected to be herdsmen.

The tragic incident which allegedly occurred on Monday, along the kidnapper-infested Benin-Auchi highway, was made known by a Facebook user, Asomba Andrew Egbuonu.

Egbuonu said Ella Williams who graduated with a Masters of Science degree in Architecture, met her death while travelling from Benin, to pick up her call up letter at the University's main campus in Ekpoma, in preparation for the compulsory one year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), programme.

He reported further that the herdsmen opened fire on the bus she was travelling in, killing her on the spot, while other passengers in the bus were abducted and taken into the thick forest by the hoodlums.

Asomba Andrew Egbuonu wrote on his Facebook page: "I received the devastating news of the demise of a young lady and a promising future of the Nigerian nation, Miss Ella Williams, in the hands of blood-thirsty and heartless herdsmen on the Benin–Ekpoma Road in Edo State.

"Miss Williams who has just graduated with a Masters in Architecture from Ambrose Alli University Ekpoma was said to have travelled from her Benin base to pick up her Call-up.

"She never made it back as her vehicle was attacked by murderous marauders who ambushed vehicles by opening fire on them with their small arms (aka AK47 Assault guns) killing her on the spot. What a country where human lives have no value, especially to these emotion-less invaders", Egbuonu added.

"All over Nigeria, criminals and kidnappers plan and find ways of stopping vehicle before kidnappings their victims.

"This appears to be too much work for these roaming marauders who prefer to use their bullets indiscriminately to stop vehicles on highways, killing the drivers and any other unfortunate passengers, before kidnapping the leftover survivors and herding them into our vast ungoverned bushes and forests.

"That this modus operandi has been used repeatedly with almost no consequence for these criminals is unacceptable. The Nigerian government under the watch of our President cannot continue to claim helplessness and reign as Nigeria's best are wasted all over Nigeria.

"Miss Williams is gone, lost to a nation in need of her brightest and best. Her parents are heartbroken; her friends and colleagues in deep shock; her killers are out there still demanding and waiting to collect ransom from the surviving passengers from last week's murderous and senseless kidnapping; and the Nigerian State moves on as it is business as usual to our rulers."

It is pertinent to recall that quite a number of commuters have been killed and many others injured along the Benin-Auchi highway, by suspected herdsmen and kidnappers who operate unhindered almost on a daily basis.

Kaduna State (Zaria), June 15, 2021 (NAN) Federal Fire Service Controller General (CG) Liman Ibrahim has implored Nigerians to act as volunteer firefighters to curb fire menace in the country.

Ibrahim said this during the commissioning of one modern firefighting truck and two ambulances in Zaria, Kaduna State.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the deployed fire truck and ambulances were among the recently acquired 20 life support ambulances and seven fire fighting trucks by the Federal Fire Service.

He said that if citizens on ground at fire scenes attended to fire before the arrival of fire firefighters, the excesses of fire menace will be curtailed.

“Nigerians should be auxiliary firefighters like in developed countries as that will help reduce the impact on us and reduce the number of fire outbreak,” he said.

“In developed countries in a situation where you have 50 firefighters, only 20 are on government payroll while the remaining 30 are volunteers.

“Before the arrival of firefighters they are already doing something so the fire will jot spread but curtail it to its origin and control it.

“What is important in firefighting is control but many people don’t understand when we are controlling fire.

“When property C is on fire we need to protect property B and D so we lay emphasis more on the property that are not on fire.

“Because what is on fire is already on fire so we are telling citizens to be auxiliary firefighters,” he said.

The FFS boss stated that the service in collaboration with state fire service was to mitigate and engage citizens, villagers and traders on how to minimise fire outbreaks and encourage prompt response to outbreaks.

“Fire fighting is everybody’s responsibility so the need for robust collaboration between the centre and states need not to be overemphasized,” he said.

He called on the state government to provide allocation of utility vehicles, recruitment of young firefighters and approval of paramilitary salary structure to the state fire service.

Gov. Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State said that the asset deployed would boost the capacity of the state fire service to respond to fire disasters.

Represented by Mr Abubakar Alhassan, the Executive Secretary of Kaduna State Emergency Management Agency, said that there was need for rigorous sensitisation campaign in the state.

The Emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Ahmed Bamalli said that at the local council level, sensitisation was ongoing on how to prevent and curtail fire if it occurs.

"This commissioning is the first of its kind in this part of the country and we ensure everyone that we will do our possible best to ensure this machines are well kept.

“We appeal to the fire service that going forward in your next budget that you include the acquisition of utility vehicles to be your next budget.

“We also appeal to the representative of the government to inform the Governor of all said here and we believe he will take action where needed,” he said.

Minister of Finance, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Mr Shehu Shinkafi said that the ministry would continue to support fire service financially because of it’s essential services.

He appealed to the emir to advise people at the grassroots to take the gesture seriously because it took a lot of investment and funding to acquire.

“Guide this asset jealously because while fighting fire we see people vandalising these equipment, so please always provide security cover for those fighting fire.

“Out of frustration at times the public might not understand and might be called when the fire has gone beyond recovery and any damage to this truck requires a lot of money to repair,” he said.

An unorthodox vigilante group known as ‘Bakasi boys’ who engaged in jungle justice in Anambra state have resurfaced after two decades to crush cultists and other criminals has allegedly killed six suspects.


The vigilante group arrived in Awka, the state capital, on Saturday with their first six victims burnt on Monday.


No one seems to know who sent them or how they are to approach their duty, but they are not policemen.


Police spokesman Ikenga Tochukwu said he had no information on them, but a senior officer confirmed that they arrived on Saturday.


The officer provided no further information.


“That’s the only thing I can tell you for now, let’s see how things work out in days and weeks to come,” he said.


“If they engage in jungle justice, nobody will talk, especially the lawyers and human rights groups, but when police engage in such, the whole world will tumble and that’s what the state deserves at this moment, ” the source said.

Awka has been terrorised by cultists without much resistance from police.


 Apex Igbo group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has maintained its stance on zoning in the upcoming Anambra Guber Elections.


Vice-President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Damian Okeke-Ogenere, made this known in Awka on Monday. He said that Okeke-Ogene noted Ohanaeze Ndigbo represents all Igbo communities at home and abroad and, as such, stood by the decision of Anambra people on zoning of the state’s governorship seat. Okeke-Ogene advised political parties and governorship aspirants in the state to comply with the agreement reached on the matter at a summit in 2017.

“We, all stakeholders of the state, held a summit and unanimously agreed that the state governorship would be zoned to build political peace and oneness.”

We agreed during the summit that zoning would entrench equity and harmony in the state. Why this deviant attitude? We stand on zoning,” he said.

He urged governorship aspirants against zoning to embrace the spirit of sportsmanship to enable free, fair, and credible governorship election and peaceful transition in the state. Okeke-Ogene commended the state Gov. Willie Obiano for cooperation and commitment to the wellbeing of the citizens as well as for sticking to the zoning arrangement. He appealed to all political parties to see the unity and peace of Anambra as more important than their personal interests.

He said that Ohanaeze Ndigbo would support governorship candidates from Anambra South Senatorial District in line with the zoning agreement. 

“All political parties in the state should elect their party flagbearers from the south senatorial district to enable voters to elect the next governor of the state,” he appealed.

StatePress reports that Zambia President Edgar Lungu collapsed in the capital, Lusaka, during a national defence day event on Sunday.

Shortly after, Secretary to the Cabinet, Dr Simon Miti, issued a statement to reporters and the State TV, assuring the local public and the international community that President Lungu "is well and has continued to discharge his duties".

Dr Miti disclosed that during the observation of the 45th Defence Force Day Commemoration and Investiture Ceremony, the President experienced "sudden dizziness" but recovered immediately.

Mr Lungu is said to have walked on his own to his car and returned to State House.

The Zambian leader had a similar experience in 2015, caused by what the presidency said was an "oesophagus condition".

The four-hour defence day ceremony took place at Lusaka's Freedom Statute on Independence Avenue where the Defence Forces showcased their military prowess.

President Lungu used the event to conduct an investiture ceremony to honour gallant men and women in uniform.

Zambia is preparing for a general election set for August 12.

President Lungu ascended to power in a by-election necessitated by Michael Sata's death in 2014.

The Anambra State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has debunked allegations that its state executive has been removed by a Federal High Court in Abuja.


There have been rumours in the state that a High Court in Abuja had removed the State executive of the party in a judgement delivered through zoom.

The State Chairman of the party, Mr Ndubuisi Nwobu who addressed a press conference at the State party secretariat in Awka dismissed the judgement.

He said: "We're here to bring you to pace about certain developments in the party. Our attention has been drawn to a court judgement delivered via zoom, which purportedly sacked this executive. We want to tell you there is nothing of such, and it cannot stand.


Supreme Court judgement: Makinde finally bows to pressure, promises to pay sacked council bosses

"I want to tell you that there was another judgment on 24 May 2018, by one Justice AO Musa of the FCT High Court. That judgement clearly stated the process in which we emerged, and it stated that we fulfilled all the processes, and we were duly elected.

"We have taken notice of the efforts of political merchants and in a short while, those who are bent on being fifth columnists will hear from us."


He stated that so far, there have been no leadership problems in the state chapter of the party, and that Mr Ejike Oguebego, who was referred to by the zoom judgement as the new chairman has been loyal to the leadership of the party.

He said, "Let it be known that the said judgement is of no substance and does not avail the plaintiffs of any right whatsoever being inconsistent with a valid judgement of a court of coordinate jurisdiction.

"In view of the foregoing, we appeal to the Anambra State PDP family, supporters and aspirants to go about their political activities without let or hindrance."

The Acting Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Anambra State, Chukwudi Umeaba, has annulled the governorship ward congresses of the party in the state.

Umeaba who was reinstated by an Abuja Federal High Court recently as the state acting caretaker committee chairman of the party announced the annulment on Saturday at a press conference in Awka, Anambra State.

A factional state executive committee of the party led by Chief Ndubuisi Nwobu had on Friday held the ward congresses of the party aimed at producing the party's governorship candidate in its primary election scheduled for June 26 .

But Umuaba at the press briefing described the exercise as void, stating that the National Executive Council of the party would give a new date for the conduct of congresses.

He said "I hereby suspend the ward congresses of 9th June to elect a three-man Adhoc committee for the governorship primary.

"I will contact the NEC of our great party to give me a new date for the ward congresses that will elect the three-man Adhoc committee for the governorship primary."

He urged the party members to remain calm and look forward to new developments that would ensure the growth of the party in the state.

He said the party's primary election would go on as planned, and would not be truncated by the change in leadership.


A chieftain of the party, Samuel Anyakorah, who instituted the case that sacked the Ndubuisi Nwobu state exco, described the Umeaba-led party as the authentic leadership of the party, having been unjustly removed in 2017.

He said "I was the one who dragged the party to court because of that unjust act. We wrote to the then national vice chairman of Southeast, Mr Austin Umahi and even to His Excellency Uche Secondus, but they ignored us.

"That was why we went to court, and thank God today, the authentic leadership of the party has been restored. You can see how happy everybody is. We hope that the party will move on now."

Reacting, Nwobu, accused those he described as political merchants of orchestrating the judgement that purportedly sacked his exco.

He said "Our attention has been drawn to a court judgement delivered via zoom, which purportedly sacked this executive. We want to tell you there is nothing of such, and it cannot stand.

"I want to tell you that there was another judgment on 24 May 2018, by Justice AO Musa of the FCT high court. That judgement clearly stated the process in which we emerged, and it stated that we fulfilled all the processes, and we were duly elected"

 

Dr Godwin Maduka’s media organization has launched Okosisi bulletin, a special publication dedicated towards creating awareness of Dr Godwin Maduka’s campaign activities. The 24 page material is a well packaged and well designed bulletin conceptualized to maintain a channel of communication between Dr Godwin Maduka and the Anambra electorate. According to the editor of the news bulletin, Mr Onwurah Chinonso Anthony (Equity Lawyer), the news bulletin was birthed to keep ndi Anambra properly informed about the policy blueprints of Dr Maduka and the progress of his campaign, especially those who are not very active on the social media and those who lack internet access. The newspaper features most of Dr Maduka’s interviews, articles, tours, projects, visits etc.

Speaking further, he noted that the major tool of politics and governance is communication and media is therefore pivotal to the success of every political campaign. “As a politician, people can only buy into your vision if you are able to communicate the right message and it can only be done through the right channels, and that is why we are exploring every option to sell our ideas and what we intend to do when we mount the saddle. We have dominated the online platforms and we want to use this bulletin to dominate the traditional platform and we believe that when the people get our message, they will be more than convinced to join our umbrella and key into our divine project”.

Meanwhile, the media team has visited some of the major markets in Anambra state to distribute the news bulletin. The reception so far by ndi Anambra has been tremendous leading to deafening calls on Dr Maduka to replicate the Umuchukwu magic on a large scale in Anambra state. Some of the markets visited so far for the sensitization of Dr Maduka's mandate are Ose market, Onitsha , stockfish market, building materials market, Egerton motor park and UNIZIK. More markets, churches and parks will be visited in the coming days in a bid to spread the gospel according to Dr Maduka, bringing to message of "salvation" to every part of the State.

The SSA to the Governor on Health Monitoring and Coordinator of Delta State Health Monitoring Team, Dr. Michael Nwoko has stated that Delta State is always on top when it comes to infectious disease control. 


Dr. Nwoko made this known when he featured on Channels Television COVID-19 update Program on 10/06/2021.

He emphasized that in order to effectively contain the COVID-19 pandemic, the State is driving the vaccination program to ensure that all those who had earlier taken their first doses take their second doses during this phase of the vaccination program. 


Dr. Nwoko whilst thanking His Excellency, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa for creating the enabling environment for the vaccination program noted that the State had decentralized the vaccination program in order to ensure that majority of the people are vaccinated. 

While reacting to the issue of limited doses of the Vaccines, the ebullient SSA informed that efforts are on top gear to fully utilize the available vaccines and then make a case with the National Primary Health Care Development Agency for deployment of more Vaccines in the second phase of the program. 


Conclusively, Dr. Nwoko posited that the vaccination program are on across the 25 local Government Areas in Delta State and that immunization officers are also visiting corporate offices to get people vaccinated adding that there is continuous advocacy and sensitization program on the need for the people to get vaccinated as the Vaccines are safe and efficacious.



A watchdog group, Anambra Awareness Coalition, AAC, has debunked allegations leveled against a frontline PDP governorship aspirant in the State, Dr. Godwin Maduka.

The Independent Leaders Forum (ILF) at a press conference held in Awka, had called for Maduka's disqualification on the grounds that he gave bribe to statutory delegates of the PDP governorship primary scheduled for June 26, 2021.

In a statement in Awka, the AAC said there is no iota of truth in the allegations, leveled against Dr. Maduka, but rather the figment of the imagination of those who are scared of his towering profile.

President of the AAU, Alfred Onyeabo, said Dr Maduka never at any time, faulted the threshold of N3, 000 approved by the aspirants and the party leadership for the statutory delegates.

He said "The fact remains that Dr. Maduka, is a stickler for rules and a respecter of order. 

"He never gave the delegates above the approved sum as agreed by the aspirants and the party leadership. He complied with the terms of the agreement.

'Dr. Maduka's Foundation, which has received several awards for it's acts of philanthropy across the country and known across Anambra State and beyond for its genuine humanitarian activities, has a tradition of doling out largesse to indigent people of Anambra State.

"Thus, it is not out of place for such largesse to be extended by his Foundation to those who support and back his aspiration to become governor of Anambra State.

"The largesse of N50,000, which is nothing unusual for the foundation, was doled out to Indigenes to demonstrate the support of the foundation to their families and to aid their individual engagements.

According to him, Dr Maduka is a global respected icon in modern medicine and he could not have achieved such feat if he is not a respecter of rules.

"Those peddling this falsehood against him have clearly shown their desperation to resort to Pull Him Down Syndrome, PHD, which is their stock in trade.

"We believe that the resort to tarnish Dr Maduka's image barely few weeks to the party's governorship primary, clearly reveals their fear, that he is the favoured among the delegates and party faithful of the PDP for the governorship ticket of the party.

"We advise them to focus on the party primary ahead and ensure that the PDP produce a formidable governorship candidate in the mould of Dr. Maduka, a man who has shown undiluted capacity to win the Anambra governorship election for the party.
