• No negotiation, no surrender, Boko Haram tells FG

    02/Apr/2016 // 563 Viewers

     

    A new video was released on Friday by the Boko Haram jihadist group, denying any suggestion that it might negotiate with the Federal Government.

    This is coming just about a week after its leader, Abubakar Shekau, said in March that his time as the head of the group might be coming to an end.

    The previous video showed Shekau, who appeared thin and spiritless, delivering his message without his usual fiery manner.

    This had prompted speculation from the Army that the Islamist group was on the verge of collapse in the face of a sustained military counter-insurgency.

    However, in a Friday video posted on YouTube, which showed men holding AK-47s and posing in front of Toyota Hilux pick-up trucks and a lorry mounted with a military cannon, Boko Haram maintained that it was still a potent fighting force and would not surrender.

    According to an AFP report, a masked man in camouflage said in a prepared script in Hausa that, “You should know that there is no truce, there are no negotiations, there is no surrender. This war between us will not stop.”

    The video, of markedly better quality than Shekau’s and including Arabic subtitles, featured nine masked Boko Haram fighters standing on sandy ground in an undisclosed desert location.

    It is, however, unclear whether Shekau was among the masked people in the video.

    “Shekau is still the head of the ‘West African wing’,” said the masked man, who likened the sect to the Islamist insurgents in Iraq, Libya and Syria.

    Boko Haram, which has killed over 20,000 people and displaced more than two million people from their homes, had pledged allegiance to ISIS in March 2015.

    Meanwhile, the Nigerian Army has won back a number of territories from the militants, rescuing thousands of people who had been living under the sect’s control.

    Commenting on the new video, an Africa security specialist, Ryan Cummings, said, “The (new) video appears to confirm collaboration between Boko Haram and the Islamic State group. The production quality bears the hallmarks of the Islamic State’s media wing.” - Punch

  • BIAFRA: Another lie against Kanu nailed

    02/Apr/2016 // 445 Viewers

     

    PARIS, APRIL 2, 2016: (DGW) - CONTRARY  to previous reports that the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, (IPOB) asked the British Government to intervene in his case by prevailing on President Muhammadu Buhari to release him from prison, Biafra Writers today issued a cutting rejoinder dispelling that ill-conceived rumour on the grapevine.

    Maxi Nnamdi Kanu, in the rejoinder signed by Ayinkwa Kelechi Cynthia and Ikechukwu Nwaorisa, did not solicit for help from the British Government or mandated anyone to do so on his behalf and asked the public to disregard the rumour.

    In the previous report which made news headlines across Nigeria, Kanu was reported to have asked the British Government through the agency of his lawyer in a letter to the British High Commission in Abuja  to intervene in his case adding that he is British.

    Below is a copy of  the rejoinder sent to our Paris newsroom:

    ''Sequel to the lies concocted by the Nigerian gutter media, that Nnamdi Kanu the leader of IPOB said: "he is a British citizen, ask Buhari to release me Nnamdi Kanu tells the UK", we hereby, wish to deconstruct that garbage fed to the Nigerian audience by the most corrupt press in the world...The Nigeria Media''.

    ''This is not actually the first time Nigerian journalists are writing junk in the name of the reportage and lying against Nnamdi Kanu and Biafrans. They lied that Nnamdi Kanu was apprehended in a hotel with a prostitute, they equally lied that Nnamdi Kanu apologized to the tyrant Buhari for calling him a terrorist, and a Pedophile and also to ex-president Goodluck for calling him Imbecilic''.

    ''All these lies we dismantle line by line, letting the world to know that Buhari vowed and declared publicly that he would tamper with the freedom of the press, simply because he got from the press 2.5 billion Naira scandal when he was a minister of petroleum, therefore he vowed to deal with the press by using them against IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu''.

    ''Buhari didn't allow the independence of the judiciary as well as the press in Nigeria that he keeps meddling in their activities. It could be recalled that Buhari jailed journalists for giving truthful reports. Now they are frightened, threatened and bribed by Buhari to fake reports, just like he maneuver and bribed a justice of the federal high Court Abuja Justice John Tsoho, to overrule own rulings by allowing masquerades to testify behind the screen, and never to grant Nnamdi Kanu bail even though proven innocent''.

    ''Since Buhari and his cohorts (media) ain't tired of reporting lies and fake report about the prisoner of conscience Nnamdi Kanu, Biafrans gladly welcomed their challenge and promise to deconstruct and uncover their true identity that Nigeria state is built on lies and deceit hence must dismember''.

    ''Scores of pro-Biafra protesters were killed by Nigerian Army ,Buratai chief of Army staff lied and reported only ten (10), although Biafrans countered that with our evidence and proof unlike them, for the world to see how devilish Nigeria state really are''.

    ''We, therefore, wish to make a categorical statement here that, Nnamdi Kanu never solicited for any help, not from Buhari, Britain, Nigerians nor anybody. IPOB is his only family and they are with him. But if they claim Kanu had requested for the help from the UK regarding his detention, where is the video and audio clip to that effect? Until then, their allegations are dead on arrival''.

  • Another member Of IMN who died in prison buried today

    02/Apr/2016 // 750 Viewers

     

    Today, another brother of the Islamic Movement, among those awaiting trial in Kaduna prison was buried in Tudun wada Kaduna cemetery, exactly 3 month after he died of gun shots he sustained during the Nigerian army’s attack in Zaria last December.

    Abbas Ishaq, 49, was arrested in Sheikh Zakzaky’s house and died two weeks after he and other 200 brothers of the Islamic Movement were detained in Kaduna central prison.

    After much persuasion, the Hospital where his corpse was stored released him for proper Islamic burial today.

    Doctors of the Islamic Movement confirmed that he was unattended to by the prison authorities when he was in prison, a situation that led to his death.

    Abbas, who is a native of Danja in Katsina state, but live in Kawo Kaduna, left behind a wife and a child.

    There is still another corpse yet to be released to the Islamic Movement for burial. It is that of Idris Khalid. Efforts are still going on for its release for burial.

    Abbas is the only person released by the authorities for Islamic burials, even though there are over a thousand unarmed people gunned down by the military during the Zaria massacre.

  • INTERVIEW: Gen. Obiakor (rtd) breaks silence on how OBASANJO was sent to release detained BIAFRA soldiers after the civil war

    02/Apr/2017 // 19204 Viewers

     

    In this interview with our Correspondent, Lt. Gen. Chikadibia Isaac Obiakor (rtd), former GOC, 2 Division, former ECOMOG Commander and Nigeria’s first Military Adviser to UN Secretary General on Peacekeeping, relives his childhood days, his par­ticipation in the Nigeria/Biafra war; his entry into the Nigerian Army after the war and his involvement in ECOMOG peace-keeping operations in Liberia.
     
    On his birth and parents


    I must say that I was born like every other child, into the fam­ily of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Obia­kor, an artisan Grade I engine driver initially with the Nigerian Railway Corporation, before he joined the Federal Ministry of Works as a technician until he re­tired in 1961. We were 10 in the family - six boys and four girls. I attended St. Bartholomew Prima­ry School and eventually ended up in Nigerian Military School, Zaria.


    On when he joined the Nige­rian Military School, Zaria


    I joined the Nigerian Military School, (NMS) Zaria in January 1963. By the time I was in Class 3 or 4, I was the school high jumper. I also played basketball till 1965 when I was selected to do citizenship and leadership course. The 1966 coup took place when we came home on holiday and that was a rude shock to me. My first military operation was in May 1966 during the ‘Araba’ riot in the North where many South­erners were killed and maimed. Those of us in the senior class in NMS were deployed to Zaria to keep peace. You can imagine, as boy soldiers, we had no parochial interest. We were told to maintain peace and we did just that.


    On how he escaped from Zaria during the civil war


    After the May 29 deployment in Zaria, we went back to school as some level of peace had been maintained. My parents were in the North then. So, I told them to relocate to the East on July 29, 1966 precisely. We embarked on the journey to the East during the holiday. We didn’t know that there was a counter-coup. At Makurdi, we noticed heavy presence of sol­diers on top of the bridge. It was when we got to Enugu that we knew that there was a problem. Odumegwu Ojukwu, then Mili­tary Governor of Eastern Region ordered that we should not go back to the North. He directed that we should be deployed to government schools in the East where they have military cadet corps. I found myself at Govern­ment College, Umuahia, where I continued my class 4 up till 1967.

    It was when we were prepar­ing for school certificate exami­nations that the war broke out. Our seniors were deployed to train as officers while my group was deployed to train as civil de­fense people. I found myself in a Community Secondary School as Commandant. The last assign­ment I undertook was to train the Abriba contingent. At the end of the training, I handed over the parade to Ojukwu himself and the boys were deployed to the warfront before I proceeded to Okigwe to train as an officer. I was commissioned in 1968 and selected as member of Ojukwu’s Special Force. We were later de­ployed to our various units.


    On any particular incident that brought him close to death and how he survived


    I had a close shave with death at three different times. The first was at Eleme High School where I functioned as second-in-com­mand to late Air Commodore Emeka Omeruah, who was my Commanding Officer. I sustained my first injury there before we were withdrawn and ferried by gunboat to Okrika jetty. Later, I was deployed to George Island where I had my second injury from a mortar bomb. I was fer­ried out for medical attention. I was operated upon and thereafter evacuated to Okigwe Garrison to convalesce.
    Later, I was deployed to the School of Infantry, Orlu as an Instructor to train officers. From there I was deployed alongside late Col. Eze at Uzuakoli where we gave a very good account of ourselves. After an impressive outing, I was drafted to Elele to carry out the same type of opera­tion to repel the federal troops. While we were waiting for am­munition, federal troops got in­telligence and struck. We were helpless for about one week as we were bombarded daily by the fed­eral troops. There was no com­munication whatsoever with our headquarters. The casualty rate on our side was increasing every day. My soldiers became restive, especially with the killing of Lt. Ike by mortar bomb.
    Some soldiers that had lo­cal knowledge of the area sug­gested that we could actually establish contact with the STF HQ that evening. I raised a pla­toon to establish contact with the STF. When they came back, we planned a diversionary attack by launching an attack on the fed­eral troops who responded as ex­pected. We aborted the offensive and left the location same night to establish formal contact with the STF who took us to Ohafia. On arrival the story changed and we were charged for cowardice. I was marched to defend myself against charges of withdrawing my men from the battlefield. I told them that I did that because I lost communication with HQ for many days. And when an of­ficer losses both radio and physi­cal communication with superior authorities, he is entitled to a de­cision. I held that it was suicidal to continue to remain there. The case was dismissed. Thereafter, I was appointed as GSO operation, 45 Brigade where I trained com­mandos.


    On end of his Biafra story


    Yes, before the war came to an end, I had my third injury from an artillery attack in July1969 while I was living in the ADOs house. An artillery attack from the federal troops hit my bed­room window. I ran outside. The second shell landed on my chest. I broke six ribs, cut my lungs and fractured my diaphragm. I was rushed to the military hospital, Emekuku, where a life-saving op­eration was performed on me by the late Prof. Udekwu. That was how my Biafra story ended.


    On how he joined the Nigerian Army


    I was already in the Nigerian Army Military School when the war started. When the war ended those of us who were officers were kept at Alvan Ikoku College of Education, Owerri. I sneaked to Zaria and met our commandant who shed tears when he heard our stories. He raised a memo explaining that children were not part of the war because they were conscripted. Gen Olusegun Obasanjo was then directed to re­lease all of us. I went back and led my other colleagues back to NMS in April 1970. I did my School Certificate same year, wrote the Nigerian Defense Academy en­trance examination and was post­ed to Lagos as a private soldier in January 1971. By May, I passed NDA exams as member of 10th Regular Course.


    On his appointment as UN Force Commander, Liberia


    My first mission was ECO­MOG. I was part of the team that went to Liberia as Brigade Com­mander, 30 Artillery Brigade. I also doubled as ECOMOG Chief Coordinator for the 1997 Libe­rian elections. I came back to Nigeria, went War College and came back to teach in the same War College. I was promoted to Major-Gen in 2001. Later, I was Chief of Administration (COA) Army HQ; Commandant, Army School of Artillery; GOC 2 Di­vision Ibadan. Then, there was a slot for UN Force Commander. Two of us were sent for interview in New York. I passed and was ap­pointed UN Force Commander, Liberia 20019- 2011. I retired af­ter about 40 years (instead of 35 years) of unblemished service.


    As a former Military Adviser to the UN Secretary General, why is it difficult for the UN to stop inflow of arms to terrorists?


    At the level of international politics, there are things that are done for the sake of political ex­pediency or correctness. Coun­tries that produce arms know their markets. Most often, they don’t ask what the arms will be used for. Already they know that they are lethal and they have made up their minds to produce arms because that is economics. They cannot close down their in­dustrial complexes. There can’t be conflict without people hav­ing interest in it - that’ is a basic fact. And the UN you are talking about is an aggregation of coun­tries who are there to serve their own interests first. It is only where their interests aggregate - where there are common interests and benefits that actions are taken. That is why life has no value. When the interests of the various parties are not served, people can keep dying. Look at what is hap­pening in Iraq and Syria. Who is ISIS? Where is their industrial complex? Boko haram, where is their industrial complex?


    On identification of countries that sell arms to Boko Haram by the Intelligence unit of the Nige­rian Army


    Nobody should fool anybody that they don’t know where Boko Haram procures their arms, or even their sponsors. In Nigeria, do we name or shame people that are committing atrocities? Or don’t we know people that spon­sor evil? There is no conscience in this business of governance and international politics. When you operate at the level of UN, you will weep for humanity. They were there when over 800, 000 people were massacred in 100 days in Rwanda. Even the Nigerian civil war, didn’t they see kwashior­kor and malnourished children? While some countries refused to sell arms to federal government of Nigeria, some countries did. In all these, there is no conscience, no truth is being told. If A and B are in business and both interests are served, there will be peace.


    On his advice to Nigerian youths


    Everything boils down to lead­ership. What legacy are we leaving for our children? Parents today go to examinations miracle centres to get already made results for their children. They nurture these young ones in the warped think­ing that hard work does not pay. Today, we have graduates who cannot construct simple sentenc­es. And so we continue the vi­cious cycle - recycle morally and academically bankrupt leaders. It is unfortunate.

  • N'DELTA: Environmental degradation killing us slowly - Isoko Youths cry out, set for revolution

    02/Apr/2017 // 543 Viewers

     

    PARIS, APRIL 2, 2017: (DGW) The leadership of the Isoko Youth Agenda, IYA, has again raised an alarm over the damage done to their eco-system for the past fifty years of oil exploration and activities in the region without any infrastructure to compensate the natives.

    The cry was made to the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC by Comrade Sebastine Agbefe who spoke to newsmen in Warri, Delta State after the Stakeholders’ Consultative meeting organized by the NDDC.

     
    While speaking, he drew attention to the damage of the region eco-system since oil was first discovered in 1956 when oil was first discovered in olobiri.
     
    His words:“It is of urgent importance that a  specialist hospitals with state of the art facilities be built at strategic locations in the region to tackle health issues like cancer and chronic lung diseases caused by the continuous pollution of our environment due to oil exploration.
     
    Continuing, he said, “for over five decades since exploration commenced in Uzere in Isoko South local government area  of Delta State, the Isoko people have  to travel to the Western part of Nigeria or overseas to be able to access hospitals that can take care of the peculiar ailments they suffer, and those who cannot afford the heavy cost of travelling for such treatments, die slowly. The Isoko nation will gladly provide NDDC with land  and  the needed corporation for such facility to be sited in the isoko territory.''

  • N'DELTA: ABRAKA community cries out in anguish over herdsmen attacks as many women widowed, children orphaned

    02/Apr/2017 // 1386 Viewers

     

     PARIS, APRIL 2, 2017: (DGW) Another alarm has been raised over the reign of terror Fulani herdsmen as they continue their killings and wanton destrution of farmlands across Nigeria this time by Abraka community in Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta.

    This incident, reports say, has left the community in fear of the unknown as they now fear to go about their daily farming activities.

    Recounting their ordeals, the community minced no words in expressing surprise at the sudden departure from the long-standing, mutually-beneficial relationship, by taking up arms against the community, a situation that has created fatherless, motherless and orphaned children.

     

    “For us to go to the farm is a problem, we are not allowed to visit our farms because once they meet you, they rape you. We are all afraid and that is why farming in our area has reduced,” a resident told Channels Television.

    According to Samuel Okumagbe, the Chairman Ogwuezi Quarters, Oghara, “We have lost count, about two weeks ago, one happened in Obiaruku and it was the policemen that rescued the people.

    “Before the Christmas celebrations, two people were killed, our girls and women were raped in the farms and that is why we are afraid to go to our farms. They carry sophisticated ammunition making it impossible for us to face them.”

    Another farmer, Eris Jewo, said: “We cannot access our farm at Abraka reserves since December, we borrowed money to establish the farm and when we want to harvest what we have planted earlier for sale in order to pay back our loan to Bank of Agriculture, we were denied access to our farms and that is the position in Abraka”

    Confirming the incident, State Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Aniamaka said security operatives were deployed to the crime scene to recover the corpse, adding that investigations would reveal whether or not the killing was perpetrated by herdsmen.

    “We are investigating a case of murder and have deployed patrol teams to the area to ensure there is calm. Because it happened in the farm does not imply that it was an attack by herdsmen, we are already making inquiries to what could have led to the incident and we will definitely bring to book whoever perpetrated the act.”

  • SHOCKING: Katsina State rejects BUHARI as state's APC treasurer, Alhaji Nasiru Usman, 4000 others defect to PDP

    02/Apr/2017 // 10485 Viewers

     

    PARIS, APRIL 2, 2017: (DGW) THE Katsina State treasurer of the governing All Progressives' Congress, Alhaji Nasiru Usman,  has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), along with 4,000 others, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

    The  defectors reportedly presented themselves to the Kankia Local Government chapter of their new political abode, on Saturday.

    While speaking on behalf of other defectors, Usman said that they unavoidably had to defect to the Peoples' Democratic Party because of neglect they have been through in the hands of the All Progressives Congress.

    According to him, “It is a fact that I led many others in the struggle that ensured victory for the APC in the 2015 general election.

    “I campaigned vigorously against the then PDP candidate, Musa Nashuni, who is from my own local government – Kankia – and ensured he lost even his village, to Aminu Masari of APC.

    “However, after the polls and the subsequent assumption of Masari as governor of Katsina State, majority of us were neglected by the APC.

    “In my own case, some party stalwarts in Kankia went to the party’s state headquarters and ensured that I was suspended from its fold, for reasons best known to them.

    “I have been on suspension for 14 months, with the state office refusing to recall me as directed by the Northwest Zonal Chapter of the party, following my successful petition against the illegal action,” he said.

    He said that his defection to the PDP was not to contest for any position.

    “We left the party because of neglect. The 4,000 people defecting with me are from the 10 political wards of Kankia,” he said.

    Nashuni, Masari’s PDP rival in 2015, who also spoke, said that the PDP would not repeat the mistakes that led to the loss of the 2015 elections.

    Nashuni urged PDP members to remain focused, steadfast and united so as to be able to wrestle power from its rivals in 2019.

    Alhaji Salisu Majigiri, who received the defectors, promised a leveled playing ground for all PDP members.

    “In PDP, we are one and the same and have equal opportunities at all time,” he said. (NAN)

  • Senator FEMI OKURONMU gives reasons why there can be no ONE Nigeria

    02/Apr/2017 // 11012 Viewers

     

    PARIS, APRIL 2, 2017: (DGW) A die-hard Awoist, Senator Femi Okuronmu has said unless there is fairness and justice in Nigeria there can be no one Nigeria adding that the southwest geopolitical zone has a matter of fact, always stood for justice.

    He said justice and fairness are conspicously absent in the present Nigeria structure which gave rise for the agitation to restructure the country.

    According to him, ''The South-west always stands for justice, equity and fairness for all Nigerians. If we are able to have a system that ensures justice and fairness, there will be one Nigeria. And that is why we are asking for restructuring.

    While calling for true federalism to ensure each region develops at its own pace, he said that is what Nigeria actually stands in need of under the existing circumstances.

    He said: We had regions in the First Republic and the regions were free to develop at their own pace. That is the kind of thing we should go back to. That is what is called federalism. Federalism means you allow each region to develop at its own pace.''

  • If BIAFRA people want self-determination, they have right to do so, KANU hasn't committed treasonable offence - Senator Okunromu tells BUHARI

    02/Apr/2017 // 13975 Viewers

     

    PARIS, APRIL 2, 2017: (DGW) SENATOR Femi Okunromu, a diehard Awoist says the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has not done anything wrong to deserve detention.

    He said minorities all over the world have the right to ask for self-determation which the IPOB leader has rightly done and asked for. He questioned the rationale for keeping him in detention when Nigerian courts of competent jurisdiction have consistently granted him bail which was refused.

    He asked, ''What is his offence in the first place? What did he do that is treasonable? He is agitating for a state of Biafra. And agitation for self determination is not a criminal offence. Minority people all over the world are agitating for self determination.''

    He cited the Scottish people who recently conducted a referendum to secede from Britain insisting with all emphasis that to ask for self-determination does not amount to a criminal offence in any way.

    He said, ''The Scottish people in the United Kingdom are agitating for self determination. So, he has not committed any criminal offence as to deserve being locked up. He is just being unjustly treated by the government. If the people of Biafra want a state of their own, it is their right to do so.

    Continuing he said, '' If the Yoruba want Oodua Republic and they agitate for it, it is their right to do so. If the people in the South-South want self determination and they are fighting for it, it is their right to do so. It is a question of right of self determination.

    If these people are not satisfied with the union, they have the right to go their different ways. Czechoslovakia did so., he added.

  • NIGERIA about to explode, let BUHARI conduct a REFERENDUM to enable those who want to go to do so - Dr Emmanuel Nsan, fmr Works & Housing Minister

    02/Apr/2017 // 20164 Viewers

     

    PARIS, APRIL 2, 2017: (DGW) DR. Emmanuel Nsan former Minister of Works and Housing under Muhammadu Buhari when he was a military Head of State has declaed that Nigeria is in fact sitting on the keg of a gun powder which could explode any time now.

    he stated this while condemning the decision by President Muhammadu Buhari not to study and implement the recommedations of the 2014 Confab report.

    According to him, he said there is an urgent need to take a second look at the recommendation,

    His words: ''Honestly, I totally believe that we take a second look at the recommendation of the last confab against the background of the moment. In this case, I suggest that a referendum can be given a chance for Nigerians to vote whether they want the report implemented or rejected. I am a believer in freedom of choice. If there is any section of the country that says patriotically “please let me go”, because of some reasons, they should be allowed to do so. Perhaps, those in power may consider, unity, economy, solidarity and military implication and survival of the new nation and can then say yes, let us go our separate places.
    While speaking on the agitation for Biafra and other separatists movements , he minced no words in saying  that ''Agitations for separation have been experienced across the globe and not only in Nigeria.''

    According to him, ''In Europe and the Middle East where brothers decided to go their separate ways for peace to reign. For instance, India and Pakistan; the defunct USSR and closer here we have Southern and Northern Sudan. The various components of USSR have long been separated into different republics. So, Nigeria’s situation cannot be different.''

    Dr Nsan categorically said that those who want to secede from Nigeria to go or alternatively the call for restructuring of the country should be done as  a matter of urgency to calm frayed nerves calling for Nigeria's break up.

    Continuing, the former Works and Housing Minister said, ''For me, we should either allow people who want to go to do so without much ado or alternatively we go for total restructuring of the country by returning to old federalism.  Total fiscal federalism. Why did we even part ways with it? It was because of military interregnum. Otherwise, we survived very well during the old Eastern, Western, Northern and then Mid-Western regions. Now that we have tried presidential system and it’s not working well, why can’t we restructure the country? The late Ogbemudia continued calling for it till his death. And if fiscal federalism is given a chance, the clamour for separation will reduce but outside that, Nigeria is sitting on a keg of gunpowder.''

    On the activities of IPOB and other agitators, he said, ''And I can assure you that even if you talk of zonal structuring, every section of this country has the capacity to survive it. This again, brings me to the on-going agitations by various ethnic militias including Niger Delta militants, IPOB and others. All these are symptoms of the malaise.''

    ''These agitations are indicators that there is something wrong. Get the correct answer to the syndrome and the whole matter resolves itself. And in this instance, let us take a look at what has been recommended and then the solution may have been found. What Buhari ought to do now is to listen to Nigerians, it could be very beneficial.'', he added.
