President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, appealed to the government and people of Benue State to exercise restraint in the aftermath of the recent attacks by Fulani herdsmen, which claimed 73 lives. He assured that those behind the incident will face the wrath of the law.
The President, according to a State House release, spoke while receiving a delegation of political leaders, traditional rulers and elders of the state at the Presidential Villa in Abuja. The delegation was led by the governor, Mr.  Samuel Ortom,
According to the statement, signed by Femi Adesina, Presidential spokesperson, President Buhari commiserated with the families of the victims of the attacks and promised that the government will make efforts to bring succor them.
He assured that the perpetrators of the attacks and members of all illegal militias in the state will not go unpunished. He also stated that relevant government agencies have been directed to provide relief for those affected.
“Your Excellency, the governor, and all the leaders here, I am appealing to you to try to restrain your people. I assure you that the Police, the Department of State Security and other security agencies have been directed to ensure that all those behind the mayhem get punished. I ask you in the name of God to accommodate your countrymen. You can also be assured that I am just as worried, and concerned with the situation,’’ the President said.
President Buhari told the delegation that his administration has started working on an enduring solution to the perennial herdsmen/farmers’ conflict around the country. He explained that the Inspector- General of Police was ordered to relocate to the state to provide security for lives and properties. He called on all Benue indigenes to have confidence in the security agencies and report all suspicious cases of movements in the state.
Speaking at the meeting, Ortom said tension in the state will abate if the intervention of the Federal Government brings a lasting solution to the herdsmen attacks. He assured that he will return to Benue State to rebuild the confidence of the people.
The Tor-Tiv, Professor James Ortese Iorzua Ayatse, told the President that has been in mourning due to the incessant attacks. He called on the President to ensure that a solution to the horror is found.
“We want you to put an end to the gruesome situation,’’ the traditional ruler 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
