Fri, 06 Apr 2018
GUNMEN have killed a Village Head and 7 others in two separate attacks that occurred in Chikun and Jema’a local government areas of Kaduna State.

These attacks were coming less than 48 hours when the Minister of Interior, General Abdulrahman Dambazau assured the people of the state the federal government resolved to end any form of criminality.

Also, the police in the state had declared that they have retrieved over 1,000 arms and ammunition from people in the rural areas.


 
Findings revealed that the Chikun attack occurred in the early hours of Thursday morning when the gunmen stormed Sarari village in Chikun LG.

An eyewitness said the bandits came on motorcycles and began to move from house to house shooting at the sight and in the process, the village head, Sule Sarari and five others were killed, while 8 others were seriously wounded.

“We have to convey the injured people to a Primary Health Centre at Udawa in Birnin Gwari which is the nearest village that has a facility,” he declared.

While in Jema’a LG area two people were killed on Thursday afternoon near a collapsed bridge.

According to a member representing Jema’a/Sanga Constituency, Nicholas Shehu, the deceased was killed after taking a sick patient to Kafanchan and on their way back, they were killed.


 
According to him, “This will be the third time that an attack will be carried out from the uncompleted Asso bridge.”

The police image maker, Muktar Husseini could not be reached for confirmation.

THE Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye has asked the Supreme Court to declare the recall process initiated against him by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the basis of a purported petition against him as illegal, unlawful, wrongful, unconstitutional, null and void.

In a notice of appeal dated April 3, 2018, Senator Melaye further asked the apex court to equally set aside the judgment of the Court of Appeal delivered on March 16, 2018, ‎which dismissed his appeal against the recall for lacking in merit.

In the notice of appeal, filed by his team of lawyers, headed by Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) with Nkem Okoro and rooted on seven grounds, the Senator has asked the apex court to declare that the statutory 90 days period as provided for in section 69(b) of the 1999 constitution, having elapsed by effluxion of time on September 23, 2017, INEC can no longer validly proceed on the basis of the purported petition for his recall, presented on June 23, 2017.


 
He further prayed for an order of perpetual injunction restraining the electoral body from commencing or further continuing with the process of acting on the purported petition presented to it by his purported ‎constituents.

Some of the grounds upon which the appeal is anchored challenged the entire decision of the Court of Appeal.

Specifically, ground one of the appeal said the Court of Appeal ‎erred in law when it held that, “an unchallenged finding of fact stands”, the basis of which the court held that it lacked the jurisdiction to entertain his appeal, for the alleged failure to appeal against a specific finding of fact at the trial court.

That the Court of Appeal erred in law ‎when it held that ‘it is not for the court to verify the signature on the petition. It is the duty of INEC’, by reason of which the court failed to invalidate the petition presented to INEC.

Another ground of appeal attacked the decision of the Court of Appeal that ‘the voters at the referendum are to show through their votes loss of confidence in the member. It is not for the court to assess the reason for the loss of confidence’ the basis of which it held that the uncontroverted averments in the affidavit of the appeal at the trial court, are not material.
