Bombing of 3rd Mainland Bridge, Bonga Field & More: New Militant Group ‘Asawana Deadly Force’ Emerges

Published

on

President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent efforts to bring peace to the crisis ravaged by militants in the Niger Delta may witness yet another hindrance as a new militant group emerges.

Another new militant group, ‘Asawana Deadly Force of Niger Delta’ (ADFND), have emerged yesterday in the oil rich Niger Delta region, threatening to cripple the oil industry across the nine Niger Delta states unless the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government grants them, “Niger Delta Republic in the next couple of days.”

In a statement by its leader, Commander Olomubini Kakarakokoro, a.k.a No Mercy, the group said that:

“Except our demand for Niger Delta Republic is granted, without further notice to the Federal Government, we shall proceed to bomb Bonga field flow station, Asaba- Onistha Bridge, Third Mainland Bridge and other major bridges in the Southern part of the country, just for a start.

“The Federal Government should as a matter of urgency, withdraw all the military check points from the riverside areas of the Niger Delta, else we shall proceed to match against any baby military formation in the region without further notice.

“We are most dreaded, deadly and dangerous group in Niger Delta. Our team is comprised of specialists in different fields of war, and is poised to win the struggle for a Niger Delta State. Our struggle is not for monetary benefit or the so-called monthly N65,000 amnesty stipend. It is for the liberation and the development of the Niger Delta region.

“We therefore, warn every other group or persons as regards the fake dialogue process embarked upon by the Federal Government to know that they are not doing that for us. We are taking over from our brothers, the Niger Delta Avengers.

“As we speak all preparations and plans are on ground to strike and bring down the crude oil production to 0%, irrespective of the of the military presence in the region. The Federal Government will hear from us.”

 

MY OPINION

If this group succeeds in executing any of their plans on the soil of Nigeria then we may have no other choice than to push for the resignation of that senile octogenarian clueless and certificateless Buhari. He is not just failing Nigeria, he has completely failed Nigerians. He came to power just to witch hunt people that offended him in the past. He has made Dansuki the greatest criminal in the world because Dansuki was among those that orchestrated is arrested in the past.

Buhari is busy chasing his personal enemies while the country is sinking. That unholy political matrimony that gave birth to APC is a fundamental mistake. E nor go better for Tinubu for making Buhari president. That man is better of as a Fulani cattle rearer.

Buhari has not been able to solve any problem he inherited from previous administrations. But rather, his unfortunate tenure has created more problems for us.

Dr. Goodluck Jonathan was able to flush out Boko haram from all their hitherto captured areas in Nigeria before the general election but today they have recaptured some of these areas again. APC government under Buhari keeps winning the war against terrorism on the pages of news papers. Lie lie Muhammad is the greatest lier in the universe.

Well over two million Nigerians have lost their jobs in different banks and companies. Multinational companies and investors are running from Nigeria on a daily basis courtesy of the obsolete cum archaic economic policies of Buhari that is obnoxiously garnished with illiteracy in an unprecedented crescendo.

This Buhari of a man has no other plan for Nigerian other than northernizing and Islamizing the nation. He has indirectly empowered his kinsmen from the Fulani extraction to go and be killing innocent Nigerians unopposed. We never knew that these simple looking duns hopping around with their cattle could be this dangerous not until their elder brother became president. He even went ahead to instruct soldiers not touch any Fulani man killing people simply because they are is brothers.

Today, Nigeria’s defense is controlled by one region and religion.
Air Force- North- Muslim
IG of Police- North-Muslim
DG of DSS- North- Muslim
Chief of Army Staff- North- Muslim
NSA- North.Muslim
Immigrations- North- Muslim
Civil defense- North- Muslim
Defense Minister- North.- Muslim
Prison- North Muslim
Custom- North Muslim.

Yet this Buhari of a man is telling me that he is the president of Federal Republic of Nigeria? No no, he is the president of the northern Nigeria. Some of us are not surprised, he said on BBC news that he won’t rule the country equally. He said he will attend to issues based on the outcome of his election. Meaning regions that didn’t vote for him wont get anything in his government. And he expect us to fold our hands and keep quiet in the south. No no no, we own the oil, and we are more educated and enlightened.

Hunger, poverty, starvation, destruction, incarceration of personal enemies etc are the features of Buhari government.

If the PDP are so busy with internal politics and refuse to play opposition, indefatigable cum dogged comrades like us will take it upon ourselves to speak the truth to power because the power of the people is greater than those in power.

Gov. Zulum Clarifies Son’s Purported Killing Of Chinese National At Indian Nightclub

Published

on

By

The Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has denied reports alleging that one of the sons has been arrested and sentenced to prison for the murder of some Indian citizens.

Reports has it that there were unverified rumours, especially on social media platforms, alleging that the first son of the governor, Umar Zulum Umara, killed the Chinese national during a fight at an Indian nightclub.

However, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on New Media, Abdurrahman Ahmed Bundi, dismissed the reports in a statement on Wednesday.

According to him, no son of the governor was arrested or charged with any crime.

The statement read, “attention of the Borno State Governor’s Media Unit has been drawn to rumours circulating that the son of the Borno State Governor has been arrested for the alleged murder of some Indian citizens.

“This misinformation was published in an online blog, Nairaland, titled “Son of Borno State Governor Murders Someone In India—Politics.” The blog claimed that the Governor also travelled to India, attempting to use diplomatic status to resolve the matter.

“It is on record that Governor Babagana Zulum was on a one-month vacation in Saudi Arabia for the 2024 Hajj and later travelled to Egypt to attend the annual ASUWAN forum conference in Cairo.

“The Media Unit would like to clarify and set the record straight that Nairaland and other online blogs have mischievously spread defamatory content without any speck of truth.

“We hereby warned Nairaland and all those who have spread the false information to pull down this misinformation from its website and platforms within the next 24 hours and offer an unreserved apology to Governor Zulum, his son, and the entire family, or risk legal action. The Governor shall also not hesitate to take legal action against any media outlet that continues to publicise this defamatory information on its platform.

“We would like to inform the public that none of Governor’s Zulum’s son was either arrested or charged with any crime, or involved in any unlawful activities anywhere.

“We urge the public to exercise caution when consuming and sharing information, particularly when it comes from unverified sources and blogs instead of credible media outlets.

“We enjoin all media organisations to engage in responsible journalism of truth and factual verification while recognising the potential harm and psychological trauma the spread of false information might have caused to the Governor’s family.”

Over 600,000 Nigerians sought asylum abroad under Buhari – Report

Published

By

Over 600,000 Nigerians filed for asylum in other countries between 2016 and 2023, which were years under the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari.

Buhari was President from 2015 to 2023 and handed over to President Bola Tinubu who was sworn in on May 29, 2023, after winning in the general elections the same year.

According to a report released on Wednesday, July 17, 2024, by Statisense, a data collection organisation, of a total of 664,384 in eight years, 355,792 persons sought asylum between 2016 and 2019 while 308,592 sought asylum between 2020 and 2023.

On a year-by-year basis, 66,862 sought asylum in 2016, 91,924 in 2017, 84,624 (2018), 112,382 (2019), 73,233 (2020), 83,105 (2021), 83,402 (2022), and 68,852 in 2023.

The figures indicate a surge from the past years, as Statisense noted that within 12 years – 2004 to 2015 – only 204,791 Nigerians filed for asylum in other countries.

In total, 869,175 Nigerians filed for asylum in the last 20 years, notably from 2004 to 2023.

The report was posted on the organisation’s X.com handle @StatiSense, citing the United Nations Refugee Agency.

In another report shared by the organisation on Wednesday, it was stated that the Republic of Niger topped countries with the most Nigerian refugees in 2023 with about 200,497 Nigerians and a total of 1,268,464 Nigerian refugees between 2015 and 2023.

Niger, a border country, shares proximity with Nigeria’s north, where residents battle a spate of insecurity in the region ranging from banditry, terrorism and herdsmen-farmers crisis.

Another report also revealed that Nigerians topped the list of African countries who sought asylum in Canada in 2023 with about 10,111 asylum seekers followed by Kenya with 1,345.  It stated that 1,345 Nigerians however sought asylum in the United Kingdom and 5,136 in the United States of America.
