APC, Saraki fight
Fri, 10 Aug 2018

There is no letup for Dr. Bukola Saraki as the All Progressives Congress (APC), yesterday, continued its attack on him. Labelling him the worst senate president the country ever had, the ruling party charged members of the upper legislative chambers to deploy every machinery in motion to oust him.

In a statement signed by its acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, the ruling party insisted that Saraki must be impeached.
“A traitor will always be a traitor, however, the time and place. The Senate must do everything possible to put Dr. Saraki where he rightly belongs – the back seat. He is definitely not a fit and proper person to preside over the country’s upper and revered legislative house.

“Even at this time that he has defected to the opposition PDP, and with APC still in the majority in the Senate, Dr. Saraki still has the impudence to present himself as the Senate President. Political ambition should be made of nobler stuff,” the statement said.

But in a swift reaction, Saraki dismissed the APC’s statement as hang over from their failed “coup.”
“We can’t descend into the gutter with these characters. Apparently, they have not recovered from the shock of their Tuesday’s failed attempt to subvert democracy,” Yusuph Olaniyonu, Saraki’s media aide said.

In a related development, former APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank, has frowned at the speculation that the sacked Director of the DSS, Daura, who directed the NASS seige, indirectly worked for the senate president. Frank said at no time did the Saraki had anything in common apart from official duty with the former DG of SSS.
Frank claimed both the National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole, Daura with other known cabals in the Presidency masterminded the siege Nigerians witnessed on Tuesday at NASS.

“Information at our disposal revealed that as at August 2, National Chairman of APC, Oshiomhole, his deputy Niyi Adebayo, the Chief of Staff to the President Abba Kyari and the sacked DG DSS, summoned the Clerk of the National Assembly, Sanni Omoloro who was approved and scheduled to commence his annual vacation on August 3 outside the country, but was instructed that the Presidency has cancelled his earlier approved vacation as he will be needed to be in Senate on Tuesday to swear in a new leadership of the Senate.

“Sources close to the Clerk of National Assembly privy to his travel itinerary also revealed to us that the Clerk, based on the instruction given to him by those mentioned above, had no choice than to cancel his planned vacation,” he said.

Frank, however, called on acting President Yemi Osinbajo, to thoroughly investigate the activities of the persons mentioned.

12 killed in Edo failed bank robbery
Fri, 10 Aug 2018

No fewer than 12 persons, including a policeman, reportedly lost their lives yesterday evening when gunmen stormed Igarra, headquarters of Akoko-Edo Local Government Area of Edo State, and attempted to rob the two banks in the town, Unity Bank and Keystone Bank.

Two detainees reported to have been arrested yesterday morning for minor offences were said to be among those reportedly killed in the police station by the gunmen.
One of the detainees was reportedly arrested for incomplete vehicle particulars. It was learnt that the gunmen had first attacked the police station, which was about 1.2 kilometres from the banks, in a bid to neutralise any threat to their mission.

In the process, they burnt the official vehicle of the area commander and killed a policeman. Three other persons near the police station were also reportedly killed.

The gunmen also killed at least four other persons within the premises of the two banks in apparent anger when they could not access the vaults of the banks, unofficial reports said.

A youth in the community, Ofei Obende, said they tried to resist the robbers but were overpowered by their firepower, adding that the police in the banks exchange of gunfire with the robbers, which led to the death of the three unidentifiable people.
He said another person was caught in the crossfire and could help the police in their investigations.

Confirming the incident, the palace secretary to the Otaru of Igarra, Elder Folorunsho Dania, said: “This is a serious case. Armed robbers have besieged Igarra; so many lives killed, 10 dead persons have been counted.

“The police station was set ablaze. The area commander’s new car set ablaze; close to the police station, three people were killed and in the banks too; Keystone and Unity Banks, many persons were killed and the banks raided, it is a calamity.

“In all, 10 lives have gone. They could not access the strongroom of the banks. The people that were killed in the bank were outside the bank premises.

“Four persons were killed within the bank premises, a policeman was killed in the police station, then a stone’s throw from the police station, three persons were killed. Igarra is a war scene.”

A similar attack in November 2015 led to the death of six persons when armed robbers stormed the community.

As at the time of this report, spokesman for the Edo State Police Command, Chidi Nwabuzor, said information about the attack was still sketchy and he would release more details later.

The latest robbery in Igarra was almost exactly like the one on April 5, 2018, when armed robbers raided banks in Offa, Kwara State, killing more than 20 persons, including nine policemen, and injuring several others.
The bandits had earlier stormed a police station, subdued the personnel, carted away arms and ammunition, before proceeding to the banks.

The robbers went berserk, killing at random, before forcing their way into the banks.
