JUST IN: Masked Gunmen Kill Miyetti Allah Leader In Adamawa |The Republican News

by Jerry Lenbang

Some unidentified gunmen have killed Saidu Kolaku, a leader of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) in Adamawa state.

The assailants were said to have invaded his home on Saturday at Sabon Pegi in Mayo Belwa local government area in the state and shot him dead.

Prior to his death, Kolaku was the zonal vice-chairman of the MACBAN (Adamawa south).

Sulaiman Nguroje, the state police spokesman, who confirmed the incident, said the victim died in the hospital.

‘’Unknown gunmen stormed the resident of the Fulani leader located at Sabon Pegi in Mayo Belwa local government, shot him and left him in the pool of his blood,” he said.

‘’Following the incident, a distress call was forwarded to the police who rushed to the scene and took the victim to the hospital where he was confirmed dead by the doctor on duty.”

The spokesman also revealed that the state commissioner of police has ordered personnel of the homicide department to investigate the circumstance that led to Kolaku’s death.

‘’Indeed, police received the death of the slain man with shock because of his invaluable contribution towards fighting crime and criminality especially his gallantry in the fight against kidnappers,” he said.

“The command has launched manhunt for the fleeing culprits and God’swilling, they will be tracked down and brought to justice.”

In his reaction, Muhammad Buba, public relations officer (PRO) of Miyetti Allah in the state, described Kolaku’s killing as a reprisal attack from persons who were provoked by his effort in fighting crime.

“Efforts of Kolaku in fighting crime had made the police command to honour him on 17th July 2019, for his gallantry and valiant exploits in fighting kidnappers and cattle rustlers rampaging the state,” he said.

“It’s unfortunate that the death of our zonal leader will seriously undermine the fight against crime and criminality in the state.’’

Adamawa is one of the states affected by insecurity, insurgency and periodic incidences of inter-communal killings.

BREAKING: Nnamdi Kanu Condemns In Totality Underhand Agreement Between SE Governors, Miyetti Allah

The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has condemned in totality the underhand agreement between South East governors and Fulani herdsmen group known as Miyetti Allah. The Fulani herdsmen is officially declared by the USA government and UN as the fourth most dangerous terrorist group in the world.

In a press statement released today, the leader of IPOB strongly condemed the subtle acceptance of Fulani herdsmen to form members of the vigilante group in South East Nigeria by the governors from that region, something many groups from Igboland, including Ohanaeze frown at.

Read the press release below:

PRESS STATEMENT:

I condemn in totality, both in letter and spirit the underhand agreement between South East Governors and Fulani terrorists that led to the idiotic call by Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN), the fouth most deadly terror group in the world, for the establishment of Fulani terrorist vigilante groups in Igboland Biafra.

Without much ado, I wish to state as follows:

  1. That it is extremely shocking and shameful that, at a time when Fulani cattle herders have turned to terrorists and ravaging the North, Middle Belt and Yorubaland, Southeast Governors allowed Miyetti Allah to get away with such criminal demand on our soil. It’s akin to telling someone in advance that you are coming to rob his house and he allowed you to just walk away, while pleading with you that you should reconsider. Instead of ordering their immediate arrest on the spot for daring to so brazenly reveal their criminal intention to invade Igboland, the spineless cowards that pass for SouthEast Governors appear to want to accommodate their demands. No doubt as payback for being rigged back into power by Abba Kyari led Fulani Cabal that run the government of Nigeria in the name of a dead Buhari.

2.. Miyetti Allah a mere cattle trading association, that later turned into a militant terrorist organisation is now openly threatening to conquer Igboland with the help of Igbo governors. It defies logic that Southeast Governors would care to give audience in the open in Igboland to an organisation that has been rated the fourth deadliest terrorist organisation in the world. Did the Southeast Governors stop to consider that Biafran traders in the far North, even though law abiding, can never be given the audience and reverence that these Southeast governors have so shamefully extended to Miyetti Allah.

3… Considering the weak and rambling response of Governor Dave Umahi to this criminal demand, we are certain these Southeast Governors have already granted this request; and in the unlikely event they have not, it’s highly probable that they will, albeit secretly. In such event, I hereby warn Miyetti Allah, Southeast Governors and their collaborators in the Southeast and elsewhere in Nigeria that IPOB will not tolerate the establishment of any Fulani militia, masquerading as vigilantes, in Southeast or anywhere else in Biafraland.

4…. We recall that it is the stated intention of IPOB to set up vigilante services, otherwise known as Biafran Security Services (BSS) that was used as the immediate excuse by the same Southeast Governors to proscribe IPOB, whereupon they proceeded to invite the Government of Nigeria to declare IPOB a terrorist organisation, all of which culminated in the Python Dance that claimed scores of innocent Biafran lives.

We are eagerly waiting for Miyetti Allah and their Fulani terror militia in Biafraland, an adventure they will regret for as long as they live. Their ancestors tried the same nonsense 300 years ago and returned to Zaria in humiliation, so will this Fulani army of darkness fail in 2019. Fulani caliphate must know that IPOB will not allow any of piece of Biafran territory to become another Illorin. We are waiting for Miyetti Allah with open arms.

Signed:

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu

IPOB Leader

BREAKING: Togolese Mob Attack Igbo Businessmen, Their Businesses At Assyeye Market Hezrenawoe

Images from the scene o the attack showing bloody victims

There was a widespread attack on the Nigerian businesses mostly owned by businessmen of Igbo extraction in a case that is related to an individual business guy and his Togolese girlfriend.

The incident started with an Igbo youngman who is a boyfriend to a Togolese girl. They have been friends for long. So, it happened that they had issues that resulted to a fight and both of them sustained injuries.

Actually, the Togolese girl wanted to stab the Igbo boyfriend with a knife, but the boyfriend overpowered her, all these happened at the boyfriend’s house early hours of Monday, 17 June.

The girl ran out and called some thugs, who came to the compound where the Igbo boy lives, fortunately for the boyfriend he heard the news and sneaked out of the house. When the thugs who couldn’t find the boyfriend now started breaking into the houses of all the Igbo boys living in that compound, they tied them and began to beat them, until the attention of the police was called and they intervened.

Allegedly, their plans were to kill those 4 Igbo youngmen, now when they couldn’t succeed, they gathered more thugs and headed to the main market (Assyeye Marche Hezrenawoe), where the Igbo people do their businessess.

According to eyewitness Daniel Ukoha, who shared this story with The Republican News, he said: “today being Monday was our main market day, so they entered the market and began to harass Igbo businesses, not until the police intervened again”.

“We ran and so many people lost their belongings including goods not to talk of those that got injured.

“This has been their practice, each time they heard any rumours about the Igbo and the rest of the Nigerians in Togo. They wouldn’t find out the truth they will begin to molest every Igbo or Nigerian they set their eyes on.

“Nigeria governmnt needs to intervene so that we can do our business without disturbance again from these mobs who harass us on every occasion they find conducive for their mob attack on Nigerians”

The news reaching The Republican News today, June 19 is that the boys attacked by these mob are undergoing serious medical treatment in the hospital as photos below could show.

JUST IN: Atiku Abubakar Condemns Shut Down Of AIT, Warns Against Dictatorship |The Republican News

PDP Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar

The announced suspension of the practising license of DAAR communication by the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission, NBC, is generating reactions from well-meaning Nigerians who see the action of the NBC as a calculated attempt by the FG to gag the media.

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the just-concluded presidential election, Atiku Abubakar has added his voice to the development. Atiku said he “received with trepidation reports of the withdrawal of the licenses of AIT and Ray Power owned by DAAR Group.

“The Gen. Buhari administration needs to be reminded that freedom of the press and of speech is not only fundamental to democracy, but it is also guaranteed by the constitution.

“Nothing untoward must be done to roll back our hard-earned democracy.”

Speaking via his twitter handle, Alhaji Atiku said “If at this time, we stand by as the Press loses its independence, there will be little to differentiate us from a dictatorship. This should not happen.

“I am a lifelong Democrat and throughout my political life, I have championed the principles of Separation of Powers. The Legislature has been challenged. The Judiciary has been tackled.” (Journalist101)
