Plateau massacre: Politicians behind killings Buhari
Tue, 26 Jun 2018
President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the latest massacre of no fewer than 100 persons in nine communities of Plateau State, saying politicians ‘‘are taking advantage of the situation’’ which he described as ‘‘incredibly unfortunate.” Buhari, who stated this in a statement made available by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Monday, also noted that a number of geographical and economic factors are contributing to the longstanding herdsmen/farmers clashes. The President urged “Nigerians affected by the herdsmen/farmers clashes to always allow the due process of the law to take its course rather than taking matters into their own hands. The statement reads in part, “According to information available to the Presidency, about 100 cattle had been rustled by a community in Plateau State, and some herdsmen were killed in the process. The state Governor, Simon Lalong, had invited the aggrieved groups and pleaded against further action while the law enforcement agents looked into the matter. Less than 24 hours later, violence broke out. “Some local thugs then took advantage of the situation, turning it into an opportunity to extort the public, and to attack people from rival political parties. There were reports of vehicles being stopped along the roads in the state,

with people being dragged out of their cars and attacked if they stated that they supported certain politicians or political party. ‘‘On his way back to Jos after attending the All Progressives Congress (APC) Convention in Abuja, the state governor had to dismantle a number of illegal road blocks set up by these thugs. There were also a number of dead bodies thugs had killed, lying along the road.” For its part, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) decried the gruesome killing of innocent Nigerians in the affected communities on Saturday. The party expressed regrets that if President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC had adhered to wise counsel by the PDP and Nigerians, such killings would have been averted. In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party insisted that the President’s failure to address and bring to book, the perpetrators of killings and bloodletting in various parts of the country is emboldening insurgents and marauders to further attack and murder defenseless Nigerians. “It is most disheartening that compatriots are being killed daily because those saddled with the responsibility of safeguarding lives, care less about the wellbeing and safety of the people, as they focus only on their ill-fated 2019 re-election bid.

NDLEA decries upsurge in Tramadol seizure
Tue, 26 Jun 2018

The Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) commander at the Lagos Airport, Ahmadu Garba, has observed that there is an increase in the influx of Tramadol into Nigeria, a situation that is creating a very serious problem in the country. Ahmadu said the agency has recorded an upsurge in the quantity of Tramadol seizure and arrest since 2017, a development, he said, was unprecedented in the last ten years in terms of quantity. Ahmadu, who revealed this on Monday in an event to mark the “United Nations International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking” in Lagos, advised that it is high time all and sundry stood up and see what they can do to make sure Nigerians see to the end of drug abuse in the country. The Commander emphasised that the quantity of Tramadol coming into the country is of high volume because traffickers are bringing a lot of it, apart from other drugs, adding that there are also several upsurge of outward trafficking of Methamphetamine and Ephedrine. Tramadol is an opioid pain medication used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain. When taken as an immediate-release oral formulation, the onset of pain relief usually occurs within about an hour. Apart from its pain relieving effects, tramadol has been discovered to give a feeling of euphoric high when taken in large quantity. When opioids like tramadol are mixed with alcohol, it increases the effects of the alcohol. Recently, a man in his mid-20’s reportedly died in Otukpo, Benue State, after consuming an overdose of tramadol. Ahmadu said because of the vigilance of NDLEA at the Lagos Airport, a lot of departures from Nigeria divert to other West African countries, whenever they are coming back to the country.

He said: “If you look at manifest so far, you see a lot of departures from Nigeria but somehow, when they are coming back, you see them diverting to most West African countries. There is an upsurge in the quantity of drug seizure because if you look at what we have been able to arrest in 2017 it is a kind of unprecedented in the last 10 years in terms of quantity.
