On Sothern Kaduna Killings, House of Reps summon service chiefs

Published

on

The House of Representatives has summoned the Chief of Defence Staff, Gabriel Olonishakin and three service chiefs to brief it on the security situation in the Southern Kaduna. The House also invited the Inspector General of Police alongside with the service chiefs in Abuja on Tuesday. It
urged President Muhammadu Buhari to direct the Nigerian Armed Forces
and the Police to deal decisively with perpetrators of the killings in
Southern Kaduna.

The House advised security
agencies to be more proactive in identifying the exact areas of the
attacks and carried out a comprehensive security mapping on attackers to
combat the menace.
The resolutions followed a motion by Rep. Gideon Gwani (PDP-Kaduna) which was unanimously adopted by members through a voice vote.
In
his lead debate, Gwani noted with grief the violent terror attacks of
Jan. 6 to Jan.9, at Tachirak, Adu and Tsonje villages of Kagoro town in
Kaura Federal Constituency of Southern Kaduna.
According
to him, the attacks lead to the death of 13 people in spite of 24 hours
imposition of curfew and the presence of the armed forces and the
police.
Gwani recalled that the resolution in
which the House urged the Executive Arm to set up a committee to
comprehensively address the incessant killings in Kaduna State and other
parts of the country had not been complied with.
Lawmakers
during the debate condemned the violent terror attacks and sympathised
with the traumatised victims and observed a minute silence in honour of
the victims.
Contributing to the motion, Rep.
Baballe Bashir (APC-Kano) said that the killings in Kaduna state started
over 37 years ago, but regretted that none of the perpetrators had been
brought to book.
“The Southern Kaduna killings
have been on for over 37 years, it happened in Kafanchan, Zangon-Kataf,
Godogodo, Gidan Waya among others, no perpetrator has been arrested,
prosecuted and punished,’’he said.
Bashir said
that some persons somewhere were benefiting from the crisis and that it
was high time they were identified and punished appropriately.
He
added that unfortunately religious bodies and the media were also
worsening the situation through inflammatory remarks and biased reports.
Many
other lawmakers equally condemned the sustained killings in the area
and other parts of the country and demanded that a lasting solution be
found.
The Speaker, Mr Yakubu Dogara, before ruling on the motion commended measures so far taken by President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the killings and destruction of property in Southern Kaduna.
After
an extensive debate, the House agreed to invite security chiefs with a
view to getting first-hand information on the challenges and prospects
of an immediate end to recurring killings and destructions.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
, who is London, wants us to patronise made in Nigeria!
