BUY OR SELL OLD AND NEW CARS, PARTS, CAR MATERIALS AS CAR MART NG LAUNCH IN NIGERIA

Gunmen have killed seven policemen and two residents in Abuja and carted away some weapons, Daily Trust learnt from witnesses and police sources yesterday.
The incident took place around 9pm Monday at the Galadimawa roundabout, less than five minutes’ drive from Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Road (also known as Airport Road).

It came less than 24 hours after two other policemen were killed by gunmen at a checkpoint near Manderegi village in Abaji, on the Abuja-Lokoja road around Sunday and one of their guns taken away.
Residents said two people were killed while several others were injured by the armed men who opened fire after they were stopped by the police for a search.
Police sources however said the slain personnel were ambushed by the gunmen at the roundabout, which is close to a police outpost.
Daily Trust learnt that the gunmen took way some guns before fleeing in a waiting vehicle.
The spokesman of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), Acting DCP Jimoh Moshood, while responding to questions from journalists at the Force Headquarters yesterday in Abuja, said the police were determined to arrest the attackers.
Moshood, who condemned the attack on policemen, said the incident highlighted the need to support a reinvigorated Special Anti-Robbery Unit (SARS) of the Force.
“The killing of the policemen goes a long way to prove that the call for the disbandment of the SARS is not justified,” he said.
The FCT Commissioner of Police Sadiq Bello, while assuring residents of adequate security, commiserated with families of fallen police officers.
In a statement by the FCT police spokesman, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, the commissioner said the police had deployed proactive security measures to protect lives and property in the FCT.

Bello visited Galadimawa roundabout for an on-the-spot assessment of the incident”.
“While commiserating with families of the deceased policemen who paid the supreme price while serving their fatherland, the CP wishes to assure law-abiding FCT residents and the general public that the command has set machineries in motion to arrest the fleeing assailants and bring them to justice,” Bello said.
He said already the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department of the FCT police command had “commenced discreet investigation to unmask the identities of the criminal elements behind the dastardly act.”

Saraki fingers APC govs, ministers as protesters storm N/Assembly
Wed, 04 Jul 2018

Senate President Bukola Saraki has told President Muhammadu Buhari that governors and ministers are sponsoring protest against the National Assembly.
Saraki said this during plenary while speaking on the protest staged at the entrance to the National Assembly over the ‘’Padding of the 2018 budget” and constituency projects.

“For Nigerians being used – people are taking advantage of the poverty in the country and what is saddening about it is that those who are doing this are those who are part of government. This does not help the unity of the arms of government.
“ Mr President needs to investigate this and call to order – there is no secret in this, if you go out there those boys will tell you where they are collecting the money from, the minister giving them the money, the governor that is giving them the money and these are governors, ministers in the same ruling party,” he said.
Saraki called on those sponsoring the protest should desist, saying “We know who you are, it is not in the interest of the unity of this country.”

[better-ads type=”banner” banner=”13566″ campaign=”none” count=”2″ columns=”1″ orderby=”rand” order=”ASC” align=”center” show-caption=”1″][/better-ads]

He insisted that the constituency projects were conceived to ensure equitable distribution of the country’s resources.
Saraki’s remarks followed a point of order by Senator Barnabas Gemade (APC, Benue) on the protest. Gemade, while condemning the call for the discontinuation of the constituency projects said the N100 billion allocated it translated to less than 1 percent of the federal budget.
