Nigeria’s Concerned Military Officers Caution Acting President Osinbajo On Cabal’s Power Games

Published

on

A group of concerned military and intelligence officers
have contacted SaharaReporters to voice their deep concern about new
schemes being fine-tuned by a cabal within and outside Aso Rock to
retain power even if President Muhammadu Buhari’s health crisis renders
him permanently incapable of reclaiming the presidency.

The officers had earlier drawn attention to moves by a coalition of
forces around Senator Bukola Saraki and Abba Kyari, President Buhari’s
Chief of Staff, to hijack power in the event that the ailing president’s
failing health leads to a power tussle.

They now claim that some ambitious top government officials, members
of the cabal, have designed a strategy to wrest power from Mr. Osinbajo
using a combination of propaganda and some military-backed action.

The security sources remarked that the present leadership vacuum in
Nigeria was the same scenario during the Presidency of the late Musa
Yar’Adua. As Mr. Yar’Adua was sick and languished in a Saudi hospital,
the cabal around him erected a strong barrier between him and Nigerians,
ensuring that the people were kept in the dark about their president’s
deteriorating condition.

The sources asserted that, during President Yar’Adua‘s prolonged
medical leave in Saudi Arabia, the then military leadership saw the
tenuous situation in the country as ripe for a power takeover. According
to them, the then Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Abdulrahman
Dambazau, set up informal contact and action groups in Lagos with Ikeja
cantonment as the focal point for controlling the commands in the larger
Lagos area. They said a second group was established in Kaduna and Jaji
while the third group was set up in Abuja where the control center was
located. They said regular meetings took place during the first and
second quarters of 2010. the current National Security Adviser, Mohammed
Babagana Monguno a retired Nigerian Army Major General played a major
role in smuggling a braindead Yar’adua into the Aso Rock Villa during
that period.

However, the sources said that the then Acting President Goodluck
Jonathan received solid intelligence briefing about the military’s plan
and ordered his trusted associates in the security services to institute
around-the-clock monitoring of the situation within and outside the
military. When it became clear that the situation was on the verge of
turning dangerous, Mr. Jonathan arranged to send General Dambazau on an
assignment abroad and then retired him before he could conclude the
mission. The then president’s move was seen as a masterstroke that saved
the country’s nascent democracy, according to the security group.

They warned that the country’s current circumstances are similar to
the Yar’Adua days, adding that a new set of power-hungry actors in top
government positions believe that Mr. Buhari’s health problems provide
another opportunity to try their luck at grabbing power.

The officers noted that, in May 2017, current Army Chief of Staff,
Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, raised the scare of a coup d’état,
adding that, two months later, nobody had been arrested and no further
revelations made about the ostensible coup plan. Describing General’s
Buratai’s talk as “a fake coup scare,” the security sources said it was
part of the cabal’s propaganda to test the prospect of seizing power
with military might.

The officers stated that Mr. Buratai’s high profile interview on
BBC’s “HardTalk” was arranged by a political cabal to burnish his image,
but his performance was so awful that the outside world was
disappointed.

The sources claimed that the recent launch of a book on Brigadier
General Zakariya Maimalari in Abuja on July 3, 2017, provided a cover
for members of the cabal to converge in Abuja to further polish their
power takeover strategy.

The sources urged Mr. Osinbajo to order his trusted security and
intelligence hands to be attentive to any small detail or unnecessary
movements in order not to be caught unawares by the machinations of
those who seek to exploit the vacuum created by Mr. Buhari’s absence to
enthrone themselves in power.

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

Published

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
