President Muhammadu Buhari has directed security agencies to fish out the herdsmen who killed no fewer than 73 farmers in New Year’s Day in Benue State.

Victims of the incident were buried last Thursday in Makurdi amid a nationwide outrage.


 
Governor Samuel Ortom told reporters that the President gave the order during a meeting with the state’s leaders of thought on the security situation.

At the meeting were Deputy Governor Benson Abounu, Tor Tiv Prof. James Ayatse, Ochi Idoma, former Senate President David Mark, Senator George Akume, Senator Barnabas Gemade, Gen. Lawrence Onoja (retd.), Speaker Terkimbir Kyambe and Senator Joseph Waku, amog others.

Presidential spokesman Femi Adesina quoted President Buhari as telling the delegation:

“Your Excellency, the governor, and all the leaders here, I am appealing to you to try to restrain your people. I assure you that the Police, the Department of State Security and other security agencies had been directed to ensure that all those behind the mayhem get punished.

“I ask you in the name of God to accommodate your country men. You can also be assured that I am just as worried, and concerned with the situation.’’

The President told the delegation that his administration had already begun a process of finding lasting solution to the perennial challenge of herdsmen conflict with farmers and communities around the country.


 
The Tor-Tiv, said his domain had been thrown into mourning due to the incessant attacks.

“We want you to put an end to the gruesome situation.’’

Ortom said Benue leaders demanded that the killer-herdsmen be arrested and prosecuted.

His words: “The situation as at today is relatively calm, although there are pockets of issues. For the past five days we have witnessed two killings compared to what was happening before. Other places are relatively calm. The security men and the IGP and the Benue State Government have been working day and night to ensure that we bring the situation under control and stop the killings.

“There are still security issues from one town to the other, like some few  days ago we had an uproar in Makurdi Local Government, headquarters of Benue State where some hoodlums wanted to take advantage. That is one of the things we have discovered in trying to create confusion so that they can go in there and loot.

Six persons were  killed  and scores injured yesterday when two gas plants went up in flames in  Magodo and Badagry, Lagos.

Two persons died and eight others were injured in the Magodo explosion. Four were killed and scores injured in the Badagry incident.

Witnesses blamed  leakages for the incidents at  Second Coming Nigeria Limited Gas Plant on CMD Road, Magodo and a shop on Iluda Road, Ajara Vevho. According to them,  emission from the exhaust of a passing vehicle caused the Magodo explosion.

The Badagry explosion  while the shop owners were offloading cooking gas around 9am.


 
Vehicles, six buildings  near the shop and six gas cylinders were destroyed in the explosion.

The Nation gathered that  two of the victims were apprentice  hairdressers.  A commercial motorcyclist and a passenger, who were standing in front of the shop were among the injured.

The  explosion was said to have broken the walls of the  shop and other  nearby shop. Human flesh littered the scene.

Officials of the Federal Fire Service, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), police and other security agencies were on ground to control the situation.

A fire official, Mr Tunde Adeboye, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that they were able to put out the fire to reduce collateral  damage.

A senior police officer, who pleaded not to be named, said four persons died in the explosion.


 
A survivor, Mr Segun Adebunmi, told NAN : “It’s a testimony that I’m alive as I escaped the scene by  whiskers’’.

An eyewitness, Mr Tope Alabi, said the explosion destroyed cars parked on the street.

“I heard a loud bang and the glasses of cars were shattering and the next thing I saw were human parts littering   the whole place.

“The security agencies responded promptly; so the situation was contained; so it didn’t escalate,” he said.

A senior official at the General Hospital, Badagry, who asked not to be named,  confirmed that four bodies had been deposited in the mortuary.

Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has banned his predecessor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, from joining the 2018 governorship race, as speculated in many quarters.

The Fayose administration, yesterday, accepted the recommendations of the Judicial Commission of Enquiry to bar Fayemi from holding public offices in Ekiti State and other parts of Nigeria for 10 years.

The panel, which was chaired by former Acting Chief Judge, Justice Silas Oyewole (retd.), submitted its report on December 13, last year, to Fayose and recommended that Fayemi must refund over N2 billion and return 17 vehicles.

Also recommended for 10-year ban from public office is the former Commissioner for Finance and Economic Development, Mr. Dapo Kolawole, who served under Fayemi.


 
The recommendation followed the receipt of a White Paper on the report of the Judicial Commission of Enquiry which investigated the handling of the state’s finances during the Fayemi administration between October 2010 and October 2014.

The White Paper also recommended that the duo should refund various sums of money to the coffers of the state government.

The State Executive Council (Exco) accepted the recommendations and adopted the White Paper at an emergency meeting yesterday.

Fayemi is the Minister of Mines and Steel Development while Kolawole is a board member of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA).

The ex-governor refused to appear before the panel on account of a lawsuit he filed to the effect that he would not get justice at the panel.

He claimed that members of the panel are loyalists, associates and card-carrying members of Fayose’s party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).


 
Although Fayemi is yet to declare intent to run for the July 14 governorship election, his foot soldiers are working to draft him into the race.

His posters with inscription “Happy New Year, JKF Again” appeared in Ado-Ekiti and other major towns last week.

The recommendation banning Fayemi and Kolawole appears on page 22 of the White Paper.

It reads: “Government accepts the recommendation to bar Dr. John Kayode Fayemi and the Commissioner for Finance, Mr. Dapo Vincent Kolawole, from holding public offices in Ekiti State for 10 years.”
