...Govs Promise Permanent Solution To Security Challenge In South West

Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday joined his counterparts in the South West to renew the call for the creation of State police as one of the major steps to stem the growing tide of insecurity in the region.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, alongside Governors of Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Ondo and Ekiti States converged on Ibadan for a Stakeholders' Security summit on Tuesday with a resolve to end what they described as unholy invasion of the region by armed bandits suspected to be from other tribes in the country, thereby causing security breach and creating unnecessary tension in the relatively peaceful zone.

The Chief Executives of the six States in the region unanimously agreed to the creation of State police so as to confront the challenge head on, listing the benefits inherent in having it.

In his speech, Governor Sanwo-Olu suggested that advocacy be introduced while State Police be considered to compliment the effort of the Federal Police in all States of the federation.

"State Police is the way to go. This would give the Chief Security officers in each of the States the opportunity to direct their affairs and make them accountable instead of waiting for Federal directives before major actions could be taken on incidents of banditry, cultism and other heinous crimes. Controlling one's police at the State level would help us achieve unhindered and accelerated response to any criminal activities recorded within our communities ", he said.

According to him, "The importance of security in human existence cannot be underestimated which means security is paramount to the existence of all human beings and no meaningful development could be recorded in the absence of security.

Sanwo-Olu urged all States Governors in the zone and stakeholders alike to put all machinery in motion to find a permanent solution to the security lapses, adding that we should all speak with one voice and remove politics so as to put a permanent stop to the incessant incursions on our land.

The Governor maintained that no developmental strides could be achieved in the absence of security, just as he commended the efforts of the DAWN Commission for the laudable programme.

According to him, "the issue discussed here today coincides with the deliberations of the governors during a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari and at the Governors Forum held last week in Abuja".

He however suggested deep and consistent advocacy amongst our people even as he called on people from the region to live together and embrace unity as a way to sustain security and curb invasion.

Also earlier, the Chairman, Southwest Governors Forum, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu, while declaring open the summit,  reiterated that protection of lives of residents and people of South west is paramount to all the governors, hence their support for the creation of DAWN Commission.

 He said the meeting was the Commission's effort at creating engagement and discourse for finding a lasting solution to the security challenges in the south west.




JUNE 25, 2019


THE TROOPS OF FIELD MARSHAL HAFTAR RELEASED MORE THAN 2,500 AFRICANS (men women and children and babies) in a very strange farm.

All these Africans were locked in small cages limiting their movements like wild beasts. They were all in a very bad state.

Some had no eyes and all bore stigmata of gross surgery.

The story of these unfortunate africans is beyond any understanding.

It's the farm of horrors.
The paroxysm of horror.

The worst was, again, attained.

The most extreme barbarism worthy of hell executed by incarnated demons.

No human being can commit such atrocities to other human beings and feel free.

With the blessing of the European Union, they created the black market of all parts of the human body.

They ruled that the black people were human spare parts.

Without bothering to give them the slightest anesthesia, doctors took from them the organs that the wealthy Western clientele needed.

We sequester human beings. They are denied their humanity and locked up in cages as a reserve for the needs of Western medicine.

An abominable booming business in the Middle East.

Human farms are becoming more numerous.

- An african kidney now costs $ 262,000 (131 million CFA francs);
- the heart costs $ 119,000 (60 million CFA francs);
- the liver costs $ 157,000 (79 million CFA francs).

Africans, let us love each other. Let us protect ourselves. Let's take care of each other. Let us learn to love human life more than material and perishable things. We came naked and we will leave naked.

The black people are the target of the worst predators of humanity according to a machiavellian agenda.

The Arabs are and have always been in history, the executor of the dirty work of the West.

They despise us but want our organs and our dear melanin, the heavenly mantle of the universe.

Our enemy is not our opposite. Our enemy today is the same as yesterday. Those who erased the Khemet civilization (Ancient Egypt).

History is repeating itself because we have learned nothing from the past. We extended the other cheek to our grave diggers. They are accelerating their strategy to erase us from the planet.

No to the exile of Africans. No to emigration.

Today, the worm has penetrated the fruit and devours it from within. Our enemy smiles at us but stabs us in the back. He is the leprosy and the cancer of humanity.

Field Marshal HAFTAR's troops found the sum of two billion dollars in cash in this appalling place.

Faced with the silence of the Western press and the African leaders, following  the dismantling of this dubious network, please inform the whole family in Africa. Go to the radios and make posters to tell young people not to go to Arab countries. This is the journey of death.

For these people, Blacks are insects. A lower race that must be eradicated.

 Share to expose these criminals. SHARE TO SAVE LIVES.

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, on Saturday arrived the city of Dublin in the Republic of Ireland to attend the 2019 TAIF International Art & Craft Festival themed ‘Uniting the World While Sustaining African Identity.”
The festival was aimed at enhancing the status of the prestigious African cultural facts and values in the international world.
According to a statement signed by his director of media and public affairs, Comrade Moses Olafare, “Ooni Ogunwusi is scheduled to be in the Republic of Ireland between 23rd to 30th June 2019.
“He will during the visit meet with his Yoruba subjects and other Africans residing in the European country and also attend to several diplomatic activities toward strengthening the ties between Nigeria and Ireland.

Sanwo-Olu at 54: Celebrating A Man On Mission For A Greater Lagos

A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something special – Nelson Mandela.
The above expression from one of the greatest ethical and political leaders of all-time aptly describes the man Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, the 15th Governor of Lagos State who is today celebrating his natal day.
Truth be told, Governor Sanwo-Olu is an embodiment of a good head, a good heart and of course a literate tongue having been privileged to have experienced the best in terms of education locally and internationally. And the result so far so good has been delivery of democratic dividends and meeting expectations of the teeming population of the State.
Now, some people may argue that it is too early in the day to shower accolades on the Governor but the popular expression that the signs of a beautiful Friday will be noticed from the preceding Thursday clearly exemplifies the actions taken so far by Governor Sanwo-Olu and his amiable and cerebral deputy, Dr Kadiri Obafemi Hamzat since they effectively took charge of the affairs of Centre of Excellence and State of Aquatic Splendor on May 29, 2019.
Like a greyhound after a rabbit, Governor Sanwo-Olu came out of the take off point with some decisive pronouncements and moves that disabused the minds of some doubting Thomases that he is actually prepared and ready for the tasks of administering the most populous State in Nigeria and in fact, a State that has been correctly adjudged as the fifth largest economy in Africa.
I have had the unique privilege of working with Governor Sanwo-Olu at very close range even before he took over the most tasking and challenging job in the State and one thing that is constant is that his passion, zeal and energy for a greater Lagos remain undebatable. I mean people could recall how the Governor vigorously campaigned across the State during the electioneering and the zestfulness on display when he met with the relevant groups and organisations across all the social strata of the State.
The good thing, however, is that Governor Sanwo-Olu has not stopped. In fact, he made it abundantly clear in his inaugural speech, and so far so good, he is walking the talk.
Another critical point which I must not fail to mention is that many who thought that the Governor would be vindictive have been pleasantly surprised as he has shown that nobody in the service of the State would be harassed on the basis of certain interests. Staff can only be reprimanded if they have failed to carry out their duties as professionally expected of them.
The Governor is forward looking and he has carried on with commendable equanimity, focusing on the job at hand rather than looking for who did what during the electioneering.
I have heard him on several occasions, warning that nobody should be hounded or maltreated on the account of working in the immediate past administration.
His Excellency, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu is a personification of humanity, a selfless leader and an uncommon Nigerian, who thinks more about the other person’s feelings than of his own. I have witnessed the display of his kind heartedness many times that I can comfortably say that he is a very good man.
For many who rightly belong to the school of thought that talk is cheap and who were not ecstatic about Governor Sanwo-Olu’s brilliant inauguration speech, which by the way he eloquently delivered, the steady implementation since his assumption can be said to be a worthy consolation.
The speech virtually captured all the key areas that needed to be addressed and the direction that the new government is headed.
By the following day, Governor Sanwo-Olu made some moves which clearly showed that he was ready to walk the talk. The first point of call was a meeting with civil servants where he emphatically told them that the government cannot afford to fail Lagosians at this critical point in time.
One striking thing was the fact that the governor was very much aware of the challenges faced by the civil servants and conversely he knew the areas where workers have to improve in terms of positive disposition to work and so on. So, on 30th of May, 2019, he promised to look into their welfare first with the provision of new buses to convey them to work and within three days, that promise was fulfilled. 35 new buses were immediately handed over to the workers to aid their movement from home to work and back home.
Also as I write this piece, all civil servants have received their salary for the month of June. That is the spirit with which Governor Sanwo-Olu is bringing into governance in Lagos.
Governor Sanwo-Olu also signed an executive order to address issues around traffic management, security and the environment after which he proceeded to Apapa for on-the-spot-assessment of the situation there.
The issue of Apapa gridlock and the state of the environment has for long been a national embarrassment and so it was a brilliant move for the Governor to immediately visit the area where he expressed commitment to his promise to truly put the deplorable and harrowing situation in the area in the dustbin of history, working in concert with the Federal Government and other relevant stakeholders.
It must be added that just two days ago, Governor Sanwo-Olu was back in Apapa with Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo and other senior government officials both from the Lagos State Government and the Federal Government, to further assess the progress of work in the effort to restore complete sanity and order in the area.
Another pleasant move by this government is the two-prong approach to traffic management which is enforcement of traffic laws and fixing of potholes. With regards to potholes, the government has already said that two lines would be released to the public through which residents can just take pictures of bad state of any road within the state and then the rehabilitation gangs would be deployed accordingly.
The Governor has boosted the morale of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) officials by increasing their monthly allowance by 100 percent with a promise to revamp all their moribund infrastructure as well as procurement of new equipment for better efficiency.
In the area of security, Governor Sanwo-Olu has also been proactive. As a matter of fact, he has met with all the top security chiefs in the State, with a pledge that the security architecture of the State would be overhauled to address contemporary security challenges including cultism, kidnapping, armed robbery, pipeline vandalism and indiscriminate driving against traffic, among others.
Just under 30 days, there are many positives to draw from the purposeful and inspiring leadership of Governor Sanwo-Olu and one can only imagine the goodies in the offing for residents and investors as there is already a clear roadmap as captured in the six pillars of his developmental agenda for the State otherwise known as T.H.EM.E.S, which stand for Traffic Management and Transportation; Health and Environment; Education and Technology; Making Lagos a 21st Century Economy; Entertainment and Tourism as well as Security and Governance.
Here is wishing my amiable and dynamic boss happy birthday. I wish you sound health and wisdom to deliver on the mission #ForAGreaterLagos.

The Nigerian Air Force said the recent social media report alleging that its training helicopters were “dropping weapons” in Akwuke Forest in Enugu State was totally fabricated by mischief-makers to cause disaffection among Nigerians.
Flight-Lt. Faith Aigbeoghain, acting Command, Public Relations and Information Officer of Headquarters NAF Ground Training Command, Enugu, made the denial in a statement on Sunday in Enugu.
Aigbeoghain said, “The attention of Headquarters GTC of Nigerian Air Force Enugu has been drawn to a social media and online story being circulated by some mischievous and misguided elements.
“The mischievous elements purported that NAF helicopters were being used to `drop weapons’ for Fulani herdsmen in the forest area of Akwuke Community in Enugu South Local Government Area in Enugu State.
“The report alleged that helicopters had been seen on several occasions flying at low level and landing in the forest area to discharge their packages.
“The headquarters of GTC wishes to state that the report is deliberately misleading and obviously concocted by the writer to cause disaffection and incite negative divisive emotions among Nigerians.”
She further explained that NAF has two helicopter training institutions under its purview, which has been operating in Enugu for several years.
Aigbeoghain said that these are International Helicopter Flying School and 405 Helicopter Combat Training Group, whose training curricula include low level flying around the forest near Akukwe, which is one of their designated training areas.
“In particular, the 405 HCTG commenced tactical training on the newly acquired 109 Power Helicopters on May 24, 2019, which includes low level flying as well as other maneuvres requiring them to land and take off within the training area.
“However, at no time was any NAF helicopter used to ‘drop’ any materials, let alone deliver weapons to any individual or group.
“Members of the public, especially residents of Enugu State, are therefore advised to discountenance the fake report and go about their normal activities without fear,’’ she said.
The Command spokesperson said that NAF, as a professional fighting force, remained resolute in performing its constitutional role of defending the territorial integrity of a united Nigeria.
“Accordingly, we shall continue to work assiduously, in synergy with sister services and other security agencies, to rid the country of all criminal elements in order to enable all Nigerians pursue their legitimate aspirations,’’ she added.

How popular cleric has turned to Dare-Devil

See 72-Year-Old Prophet With 10 Wives Accused Of Impregnating, Killing & Burying Girl
The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a 72-year-old prophet of Celestial Church of Christ in Ipaja area, Jacob Adegboyega Farinmade for allegedly killing a female undergraduate he impregnated.
The deceased, identified simply as Bunmi allegedly died during childbirth, while the clergyman secretly buried her without informing her parents.
Bunmi was said to have been taken by her father to live with her mother following her rustication in 200 level at Babcock University in Ilisan Remo, Ogun State in 2014.
Bunmi’s mother, Derayo Omisipi thereafter took her to the embattled cleric for spiritual deliverance and protection.
Sources said the cleric who already had more than 10 wives took advantage of Bunmi’s stay in his church for the purported deliverance to lure the girl to bed and impregnated her.
It was learnt that the cleric did not allow the deceased to attend any antenatal clinic throughout the duration of her pregnancy.
Sources also said the cleric broke the news of the girl’s death to her mother after he had buried her in a shallow grave near his church premises.
The father of the deceased became curious after her mother could not offer satisfactory explanation about her whereabouts.
The disturbed father reported the matter to the police and the cleric was arrested.
The matter is being handled by the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), where the prophet is currently detained.
Confirming the incident, the spokesman of Lagos State Police Command, Mr Bala Elkanah said the suspect had been charged to court for murder.

Pipeline Explosion Kills 10 In Rivers

No fewer than 10 persons lost their lives at the Kom Kom axis of Oyigbo in Oyigbo Local Government Area of Rivers State when a pipeline exploded yesterday.
Community sources said the pipeline belonged to Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), but Shell’s spokesman, Bamidele  Oladosu, said there was no record of any explosion on any SPDC facility in Oyigbo.
A resident of the area, Jude Nwanma, said people of Izuoma, where the incident occurred, woke up to a thunderous explosion that occurred from a pipeline that crisscrossed the village.
Nwanma said more than 10 persons died in the explosion.
He said the explosion caused pandemonium in the area as residents scampered for safety.
“It was around 08:00am when we heard a loud explosion. Most of the residents were still in their houses when the loud explosion occurred. I woke and gathered all my family members together before we moved out of the house.
“As we were moving out I saw billows of smoke coming from the pipeline not very far from my house. I saw many persons running out of their houses too. I did not exactly know what was happening. We just heard a loud explosion which was followed with billows of smoke.
“It was later that I learnt that the explosion occurred in one of the pipelines and that more than 10 persons lost their lives in the incident,” he said.
The Chairman of Oyigbo Local Government Area, Gerald Oforji, who confirmed the story, said 10 persons died in the explosion.
Oforji said the bodies of the victims were recovered from the scene when the fire was put out, but that no house was destroyed.
When contacted, the Rivers State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed the story, but said he was yet to be briefed on the number of casualties.
Omoni said the incident occurred when workers of a company were carrying out repair work in one of their pipelines at Kom Kom in Oyigbo.
He said the state police command had commenced investigation into the incident.
