Man steals motorcycle to fund wedding, knocked down while fleeing

A 25-year-old man identified as Yunus Suleiman, has been knocked down by a motorist while fleeing with a stolen motorcycle along the Murtala Mohammed Road, Ilorin, Kwara State on the 9th of January, 2018.

According to Royal News, Suleiman confessed to have stolen the motorcycle at Challenge area of Ilorin, adding that he wanted to sell it off and use the proceeds to fund his wedding. 
One of his legs was broken as he was knocked down. Suleiman barely escaped being lynched by a mob attracted by the cry of the owner of the motorcycle, who had been pursuing him. He was caught as he laid in his pool of blood. 

Some of the spectators suggested that he should be lynched while some others said he should be handed over to the police. The crowd watched him as he writhed in pain. 
The suspect expressed regret for his action and said he was under pressure to find money to finance his wedding coming up in a few days’ time. Suleiman was later rescued by the police and taken to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital for treatment.

Uniabuja student stabbed to death by his mom’s rival



A woman identified as Rukayat Abdulkareem, has allegedly allegedly stabbed the 18-year-old son of her rival during an altercation with his mother at Kubwa, Abuja.
According to TheNation, the incident happened at about 10 pm. Rukayat was said to have stabbed, Awal Sani, a 200 level Statistics student of University of Abuja. Awal was said to have tried to calm Rukayat when she insulted his mother. 
.
.
It was learnt that Awal was billed to resume school on Monday, January 15, 2018. Rukayat had gone to the house of Awal’s mother over allegations of camping her husband. 
.
.
Awal’s sister, Fatima Sani, a Higher National Diploma (HND II) student of Abdul Gusau Polytechnic in Zamfara State, who was also stabbed by Rukayat said: “Rukayat came here yesterday and claimed to have issues with my mother. 
She was busy insulting my mother outside, my mom came out and requested that a policeman should be called for her. They called the policeman, he came and the woman was invited to follow them to their station but she declined and said she was not going to follow them because she did not have any issue with them. 
Right there and then, the policeman said since she refused to follow them to the station, whatever happens to her is at her own risk. Unknown to us that she already had her plan well cooked. 
She was still there insulting my mother, my junior brother, Awal got provoked and went to ask why the woman was insulting his mother despite not getting response from my mother, but before we knew it, he was stabbed directly in the heart. 
I went out to see what was happening and she also stabbed me on my palm and I was also lost lots of blood. My mom who happened to be a nurse tried to run all her first aid but it was not working, we rushed him to General Hospital and by the time we got there, the doctors confirmed him dead.
The spokesman of FCT Police Command, Mr. Anjuguri Manzah, a Deputy Supretendent of Police(DSP) said the suspects including the alleged killer and the husband are also in custody.

Expect more bloodshed, herdsmen association assures Benue governor



Barely 48 hours after the mass burial of 73 victims of the recent herdsmen attacks in Benue, the National Vice President of Miyetti Allah Cattle Herders Association, Husaini Yusuf Bosso, has warned that more blood will be shed in the state if the anti-grazing law introduced by Governor Ortom is not completely scrapped. 
According to him, the herders have been sorting out their issues with farmers in the state before the Ortom government enacted the anti-grazing law without consulting stakeholders. He said: “We, the association wrote a letter to him, even met him. 
We told him that this law cannot work. We told them that there is an international cattle route from Niger to Eastern Nigeria. He said he will not allow cattle to pass through Benue state even if it is the cattle route. 
We told him that if he wants to implement that law, he must provide a land for us to rent. He did not provide any land for cattle herders. They have been in that state even before colonial days and co-existing peacefully. 
We advised him and he refused to listen to us. We are not against that law but he has to provide a land for these people before implementing such a law. If there is no land, there is a problem.
The civilian Joint Task Force that he introduced are inflicting pain on the Fulani herdsmen. They attack and seize their animals. They drag them to the nearest police station where huge amount of money is collected before they are granted bail.
This is the cause of this problem. If you attack a cattle herder and collect his cattle, he has no choice but to attack. The law is saying that herdsmen should not pass through the state even if it’s a route to another area.
In the past , if there was damage by the cattle , we had ways to settle the matter. When you damage a farm, you have to beg the owner , if they refuse, you pay for the damages. 

This has worked for us for years till Benue State decided to implement the anti-grazing law. We have challenged the law in court and till court decides which way forward, Ortom will be held responsible for any further bloodshed.”

Young journalist who set up a sports news agency dies at 27

Young journalist who set up a sports news agency dies at 27

News agency founder, Charles Golder has died at the young age of 27.

Late Charlie as he was fondly called was a sufferer of the extremely rare Pompe disease, a genetic condition that wastes muscle and often leaves sufferers crippled and wheelchair-bound.  

Charlie was diagnosed at the age of 15 but he managed to put on muscle when others would have been losing it and he stayed on his feet.

Charlie has been ill for some days but carried on working that illness turned out to have been a collapsed lung. He was moved into hospital where they found his cancer had returned and spread and that it was very aggressive.  

Months of chemotherapy and radiotherapy followed but they appeared to be ineffective and in October 2017, while waiting for an MRI scan on his back which was causing him severe pain, his legs suddenly failed him and he was again taken into emergency surgery for an operation on his spine.  He would never walk again.  

But Charlie never gave up hope. From his hospital bed, he once again restarted plans for Golder’s News and Sports, working on the logos and webpage, and organising staff. His brother Joe is to take over the agency, with its three staff, that Charlie founded. It will reopen for business on 22 January.

We are politicians and those of us you see here want the President to contest the 2019 election. We have no apologies for that. We believe in Mr. President, we want him to continue running the country in the right direction. People can speculate about 2019, we have no apologies. Whether they are right or wrong is beside the point. Everybody is entitled to his own opinion, but as governors, and most of us here with the exception of  Yobe Governor, are first time governors. We are interested in continuity and stability and we want the President to continue with that.” he said

FG urges restraint in the media coverage of Farmers/Herdsmen clashes in Benue state

FG urges restraint in the media coverage of Farmers/Herdsmen clashes in Benue state

The Federal Government has appealed to the media and public commentators to exercise utmost restraint in their coverage of the fallouts of the recent farmers/herders' clash in Benue State in order not to further inflame passion and worsen the situation.
In a statement issued in Abuja today January 13th, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said while the Federal Government is working hard to address the situation with a view to preventing a recurrence, not just in Benue State but everywhere across the country, it is incumbent on the media and public commentators not
to engage in actions that can aggravate the crisis.
''Lest we are misunderstood, we are neither saying the media should not cover the crisis nor asking public commentators to desist from commenting on it. All we are saying is that both must be circumspect. 'The current poisoned atmosphere of incendiary comments, unrestrained use of pictures and footages that offend human sensibilities as well as fingerpointing can only exacerbate the situation and complicate ongoing efforts to end the crisis,'' he said.
Alhaji Mohammed said the Federal Government is absolutely saddened by the loss of lives and the destruction of property resulting from the crisis, and recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari, in commiserating with the Benue Governor, unreservedly condemned the killings and also assured of the necessary security measures to prevent further attacks and bring the perpetrators to book.
He said the Federal Government has also mapped out short and long-term solutions to the incessant clashes between farmers and herders, including a planned conference of stakeholders, and assured of the government's strong determination to find a lasting solution to the farmers/herders' clashes.
