Suspected Herdsmen Kidnap NHIS Auditor Along Kaduna-Abuja highway

Published

on

Gunmen suspected to be herdsmen on Saturday abducted
the External Auditor of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Zakari
Sada, along the Kaduna-Abuja highway.

Sada, a former board member of the Fiscal Responsibility Commission, was reportedly kidnapped with his driver.

The development came barely three days after the suspension of the
Executive Secretary of the NHIS, Prof. Usman Yusuf, for three months
over alleged embezzlement of funds.

The suspension was to pave the way for a thorough investigation at the NHIS.

It was gathered from family sources that Sada was travelling from
Abuja to Kaduna when he was stopped by the kidnappers around Katari area
at 4.30pm.

It was learnt that his family had been in contact with the kidnappers who demanded for an undisclosed ransom.

Sources said the suspected kidnappers opened fire on travellers along the Katari area during the abduction killing a woman.

An impeccable police source told one of our correspondents that the
kidnap was perpetrated by a gang of herdsmen that have been terrorising
motorists along the 200km highway in recent times.

The source said the police had arrested 17 suspects so far, adding that the victims would soon be rescued.

He said, “We received information on Saturday that a gang of armed
herdsmen ambushed the NHIS auditor and dragged the man and his driver
into a nearby bush. The suspects then put them on some motorcycles and
fled.

“Investigation showed that about four gangs operate along that road.
We have been able to smash two of the gangs and we have arrested 17
suspects.

“A combined team of policemen from both the Kaduna and Niger State
command, soldiers and officials of the Department of State Services as
well have been deployed along the 200km road.”

The police had last month deployed 600 personnel on the 
Abuja-Kaduna/ Zaria-Kano highways to curb the kidnappings along the
highways.

When contacted, the acting Kaduna State police spokesman, Mustapha
Mohammed, promised to find out and get back to our correspondent, but he
never did.

The FCT police spokesman, Manzah Anjuguri, said the command had no report of the abduction.

But the Public Relations Officer of the NHIS, Mr. Odoh Onuh, said he had heard of the abduction but had no extra information.

“I heard about it but I don’t have much information,” he said.

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
