NIGERIA NEWSPAPERS: TODAY'S THE NATION NEWSPAPER HEADLINES [18 JANUARY, 2018].

Below are the headlines found on The Nation Online Newspaper for today, Thursday, 18 January, 2018.


Thu, 18 Jan 2018
Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation Anyim Pius Anyim is fighting to keep his integrity after being accused of collecting N575m for special service.

The cash, according to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), came  from the Office of the National Security Adviser(ONSA).

Detectives are still battling to unravel the “special service” executed by Anyim when he was not a Minister of Special Duties.

Anyim, in a statement at the EFCC, insisted that he had nothing to do with any account the Special Service Office maintains jointly with the National Security Adviser (NSA).


 
He said he only maintained with the NSA official relationship and not cash ties.

But the EFCC’s investigation indicated that about N575m was paid to the ex-SGF from the ONSA.

The Nation last night stumbled on a fact-sheet showing the details of how ONSA related with the ex-SGF.

The fact-sheet said: “On the 16th day of November 2017 at about the hour of 3pm,  Anyim was brought to the office of the commission for serious criminal investigation involving millions and billions of naira which he collected under false pretence in his former capacity as  the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (also known as SGF) which he cannot account for.

“Findings showed that the ex-SGF signed for and collected N500, 000, 000. 00 on the 4th day of March 2015 from the office of the National Security Adviser.

“Detectives have also retrieved another payment voucher  showing N20, 000, 000. 00 to the ex-SGF on the 14th day of May 2015, from the Office of the National Security Adviser.


 
“Earlier on the 24th of May 2013, about N30million was  also collected from the Office of the National Security Adviser.

“On the 6th day of June 2013,  there was payment of N20, 000, 000 from the same ONSA. The strange payment of N5million  for special service was also recorded on the 18th day of October 2013.

“The allegation against Anyim is that he did collect these sums for special service without any justification . Anyim, who was the former SGF, was not the Minister of Special Duty and did not, and cannot till justify the reason for collecting the above money.

“That our investigation revealed  that, the above money which the ex-SGF collected came from the Federation Account, of the Federal Republic of Nigeria

“The alleged money  is  suspected proceed of crime, fraud, high level of corruption, in the country, diversion of public funds obtained by  false pretence, theft of government money etc.

“In the course of our candid investigation, Anyim made a  free and voluntary written statement to our office on the 16th day of November 2017.”

The EFCC however said it was still probing the activities of the ex-SGF, who has been granted bail.

The fact-sheet added: “Investigation into the matter is still ongoing and very vital exhibits that would be useful for his criminal trial in the court of law are yet to be recovered.”

A top official of the Department of State Services (DSS) yesterday revealed how kidnap kingpin Don Waney was tracked to his hideout in Enugu.

Waney was the mastermind of the killing of 23 worshippers on New Year’s Day in Omoku, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The source told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the operation that led to Waney’s death averted further bloodshed in the state.

He said the decision to swoop on Waney was taken after he ordered his men to kill innocent residents of Omoku.


 
“We intercepted Waney’s phone conversation he had with one of his lieutenants in which he ordered them to attack schools, hospitals, places of worship, marketplaces and other targets.

“The killing and maiming of innocent residents of Omoku, including specific targets, were scheduled to take place on January 8.

“When we heard their plan to execute innocent citizens – which to us was the last straw – we decided to inform the Army about a joint operation to avert the killings.

“This eventually led to the joint operation at his hideout in Enugu, leading to his death and that of his two gang members.

The DSS operative said Waney was under surveillance for over a year.

The source said the New Year’s Day killings started after Waney sent some of his members to assassinate his third-in-command; but failed after the target escaped his apartment with gunshot wounds.


 
According to the source, the killer squad later killed his wife and other close relatives and, thereafter, proceeded to kill five other persons over an existing feud with one of the gang members.

“Some of the people who were killed died from stray bullets during the operation by the murderous gang.

“It was easy to monitor Waney because we had our agent on a constant watch that gave us in-depth knowledge of his whereabout and activities.

“Waney had companies that he used as fronts. He used one of these companies to front for surveillance jobs and leak repairs for a major oil company.

“We know where his family stayed; we know that his boys camped at a forest in Imo State from where they usually launched their operation.

“Waney was always hiding in Enugu and Ogoja (Cross River). He bought a car in Imo State and took it to Enugu – as part of his plans to change his identity,” the source said.

THROUGH its Kaduna State Command, the Police yesterday spoke of efforts to track the abductors of the Americans and Canadians and bring them to book.

The Command’s anti-kidnap unit has been sent after the gunmen, its spokesman, Mukhtar Aliyu, said last night.


 
Aliyu urged Nigerians to be vigilant and to report suspected persons or group of persons to the appropriate authorities.

Also yesterday, the Force Public Relations Officer (PRO), Moshood Jimoh, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), said the Police would continue to try their best to protect lives and properties.

His response was contained in a statement sent to our correspondent yesterday

It reads: “Under the current Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Kpotum Idris, the Nigeria Police Force has  renewed its commitment to ensuring adequate protection, safety and security of lives and properties and our efforts across the country have continued to yield positive results.

“Many have spoken about security agencies being overstretched with inadequate budgetary allocations and other resources and you will remember that the IGP has spoken of how these affect the police in critical ways.

“For instance, the United Nations’ recommended ratio of policing is far from being attained when you consider that less than four hundred thousand policemen police a nation of close to two hundred million people.


 
“Nonetheless, the Nigeria Police Force deeply appreciates the support and cooperation of members of the public for the timely information and support that has facilitated the achievement of numerous success stories.”

AN air of insecurity and violence hung on the land yesterday.

The police, however, assured that miscreants would not be given any space to operate.

Suicide bombers let off Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) strapped on their bodies in Maiduguri, killing 12 persons and injuring 48 others in the aftermath of the explosions in Maiduguri, Borno State.

In Kaduna, gunmen struck and killed two policemen attached to two Canadians and two Americans. They abducted the expatriates.

The herdsmen returned to Benue State to undermine the security arrangement. They allegedly killed four men, just as a resident-settler in an Ekiti State community of Oke-Ako reportedly killed a fellow sojourner believed to be an itinerant herdsman.

But the authorities in the affected arears swung into action. The Borno State government extended the 6pm-6am curfew on the state capital to 6pm-8pm. In Ekiti Governor Ayodele Fayose summoned an emergency state security meeting and warned against turning the agrarian state into war theatre.
