Mon, 25 Jun 2018

The curfew was announced yesterday in a statement issued by Plateau State Commissioner of Information, Yakubu Dati and signed by the Secretary to the State Government Rufus Bature.
It said the restriction of movements became necessary to avert a breakdown of law and order.
Daily Trust reports that about 12 communities in Barkin came under multiple attacks on Saturday night leading to the death of dozens, according to local sources.
The attacks, however, led to a breakdown of law and order around Angle D, which is close to Grand Cereals in Jos South as travellers were forced out of their vehicles and killed.
The President, Berom Youth Movement in Barkin Ladi, Dalyop Choji, had told journalists that 72 corpses have been recovered with many still being discovered in nearby bushes.
He said 31 corpses were recovered from Gashish village and 41 others from 11 neighbouring villages all in Barkin Ladi LG.
For his part, the Secretary of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Abubakar Gambo said apart from the five travellers killed on Friday, a young boy and five others had been killed around Gindin Akwati on Saturday while Rigan Kuwait settlement, a few kilometres from Barkin Ladi, was attacked on Sunday.
Travellers hacked to death
By Sunday afternoon, youths around Angle D. had blocked the high way and attacked travellers coming into Jos.
Alhaji Baba Bala Bukuru told journalists that he had watched as four persons were dragged out of their vehicles and hacked to death. “We were lucky, we had to turn around our vehicle and escape,” he said.
Daily Trust reports that the weekend attack is suspected to be the climax of weeks of tit-for-tat killings between Berom locals and the Fulani communities around Barkin Ladi.
Operation Safe Haven Media and Information Officer, Major Adam Umar, who spoke to our correspondent while on the field, said arrests had been made and that the taskforce had repelled the Barkin Ladi attackers.

Obasanjo, an election rigger, busybody – Tinubu
Mon, 25 Jun 2018

A national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has described former President Olusegun Obasanjo as an election rigger and a busybody for daring to advise President Muhammadu Buharu not to seek re-election in 2019.
But in a reaction, an aide to Obasanjo, who preferred anonymity, said it was unfortunate that such remark came from people who begged the former president for support in 2015.

“These are people who came to the man three years ago to beg him (Obasanjo). People are aware of this. You are now telling him to keep quiet. These people, including Tinubu himself came to the man for support. He did not go to them. The man is now saying that things are not going the way it should go. He (Buhari) cannot continue,” the aide said.
Tinubu spoke yesterday in Abuja at the end of the APC Convention, saying “One uncle back then who had being a general himself and who had being an elected president, I call him election rigger, he had the effrontery to say Buhari must not run again, in which party? Thank God he is not a member of our party.”
