The re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari with the appointment of Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi as the Director General of the President’s campaign organisation elicited mixed reactions yesterday from different groups across the geo-political zones of the country. Those who reacted to the president’s bid for a second term in 2019 were Arewa Youths Forum, Ohaneze Youths Council, Afenifere and members of the South-South Leaders Forum. Buhari’s re-election inhuman, insulting, insensitive — Arewa Youths For ignoring the wanton killings in several states across Nigeria and indicating his re-election bid for the 2019 Presidency, Northern youths have accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being inhuman and insensitive to the mood in the land and the plight of suffering Nigerians. The youths noted with dismay that the second term bid declaration at a time of fuel scarcity, rising cost of living and wanton destruction of lives and property showed that the president did not care about the feelings of Nigerians. The youths under the aegis of Arewa Youth Forum said they were alarmed that the reckless mass murder of innocent Nigerians in Benue, Rivers, Kaduna and Kwara took place at a time the president gleefully extended the tenure of all the nation’s service chiefs on account of ‘excellent performance’. In a strongly worded mail signed by the National President of the Arewa Youth Forum, Alhaji Gambo Ibrahim Gujungu, the youths lamented that none of the killers had been arrested and prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others.

The mystery behind the reign of terror of killer cult group known as badoo in Ikorodu area of Lagos, is gradually unfolding following the recent arrest of five suspected key members of the sect.
The group started its operations late 2016 with pockets of killings in different communities within Ikorodu. By 2017, its name, badoo was not only established but the gruesome murder of defenseless and helpless residents also established the killing as ritual purpose related. . Its members killed at will, without consideration to the age or sex of victims. In one of the instances, a grandmother with her two grandchildren were murdered in cold blood in their sleep. The entire members of several families were also wiped out by these evasive killers. The sanctity of worship centres like the church were disregarded as members of the blood thirsty group killed some victims right inside the centres. One baffling aspect of its operation was that none of its victims nor members of the neigbourhood where they invade was usually awake during the operation. Residents only woke up to discover the lifeless bodies of victims in their rooms with their head smashed. At a point, residents concluded badoo members were invincible beings.

The Delta State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has denied alleged decamping of 5000 of its members along with a former member of the party, Chief Felix Anirah, in Sapele, to the People’s Democratic Party. APC Chief Anirah who contested the Sapele constituency seat at the Delta State House of Assembly in 2015, under the platform of APC formerly dumped the party on Thursday for the PDP, alleging that he decamped with over 5000 members of APC. However, in swift response yesterday, the state Acting Chairman of APC, Chief Cyril Ogodo,  debunked the claim, saying,”The claim by Chief Anirah that he decamped to PDP with over 5000 of our members is laughable and a blatant lie. He contested for Delta State House of Assembly in 2015 and got less than 3000 votes out of all the APC members in Sapele LGA. So from where did he get 5000 members to decamp along with to PDP?”
