Published

on

One of the students of Government Science College, Kagara, Niger State, has revealed how bandits killed a student in his presence.

Speaking to the BBC Hausa service on Thursday, the student stated that the bandits stormed the school around 2am when one of his colleagues was on his way to the toilet.

He said his colleague noticed that some people holding flashlights were coming towards the school through the backyard and alerted him.

“I told him that he shouldn’t be afraid, nothing will happen. But he went alone with his torch light. When they noticed that someone was coming towards their direction they turned off their lights,” the student said.

He said they did not notice that the people were bandits until they entered their rooms and started pointing guns at them.

According to the student, one of his friends was shot three times in his head, back and stomach when he tried to run away from the bandits. He added that the student died in his presence.

They told us not to shout or misbehave or else they will kill us. When one of us noticed this he shouted that everybody should run that thieves have entered the hostel and that was when people began to run out of the hostels.”

“One of my friends left our room and met them on his way to their hostel. When he attempted to run, they shot at him three times in his head, back and stomach and he died.

‘How I escaped

The student further revealed that he hid in one part of the room with 10 of his roommates and luckily the bandits did not see them despite searching the room thoroughly.

They searched everywhere in the room but they did not see us. We hid in one corner where nobody can notice our presence, so they left us there. What really touched my heart was how they killed my friend while I was watching.

“I saw his corpse and it really touched my heart. I cried so much,” he said.

He said the bandits, who were in military uniform, spent almost three hours there and did not come with a vehicle, adding that they marched away after capturing the victims.

Imo: ‘Your Turn Has Finally Come’ – Nnamdi Kanu Mocks Police, Army

Published

on

The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has taken to social media to mock the Nigeria Police Force and Army over reprisal attack by citizens.

Kanu in a tweet on his Twitter handle on Friday morning, February 26 said the security agencies are now enjoying what they sowed during the Obigbo and Lekki Toll Gate incidents that caused the loss of lives a few months ago.

Naija News understands that the IPOB leader was reacting to the ongoing crisis in Imo State. It was reported earlier that some hoodlums threw inflammable objects at the Aboh Mbaise Divisional Police Headquarters in Imo State and burnt down the police facility.

The development ignited the environment, causing the policemen on guard, suspects, and natives to run into nearby bushes.

Confirming the report a source said, “This is very strange. Fleeing hoodlums have just razed Aboh Mbaise Divisional Police headquarters. They didn’t bother going into the compound. They just threw ignitable objects on the Divisional headquarters and drove off few minutes after it caught fire.

“All the policemen on duty including suspects who were being detained ran into the nearby bushes. Locals also fled their homes as the fire raged. We have not seen this one before.”

Affirming to the incident, a police spokesperson for the state command, Orlando Ikeokwu, said no policeman was lost to the incident.

Reacting to the development moments later, Kanu took to the micro-blogging platform and wrote: “Nigerian Police & Nigerian Army, do you think that those you killed their brothers and sisters in #Obigbo and #LekkiTollGate, will sit back and watch all of you enjoy your lives? Hell No!”

“Seems your turn has finally come, please enjoy it to the fullest!”

Lagos state government seals off supermarket for selling expired products (photos)

Published

on

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu government of Lagos State has sealed off the Home Affairs Supermarket located at 21, Ijaye Road, Ogba.

Naija News understands that the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA) on Thursday, February 25 announced on its official Twitter handle that it halted business operation at the store for displaying expired products for consumers to buy.

Conversing with reporters on the development, the General Manager of the agency, Afolabi Solebo Esq, said the supermarket was caught having expired products such as Kelloggs Krave (Chocolate Hazelnut) and Frozen foods, on their shelves, of which unsuspecting customers could visit for purchase.

Solebo said it is a wonder that despite several public campaigns and warnings by LASCOPA against such deadly and greedy acts, store managers still sell expired products to their customers, and offence which contravene the State government’s directives on the sale of unwholesome goods.

He said: “I, personally, discovered the expired items on the supermarket shelves on the 23rd of February, 2021, while on a routine check of supermarkets in the area. On discovering the expired products, I told the staff to remove the items from the shelves, which they did in my presence, only for the monitoring and enforcement team to go there the following day and discovered that the items have been returned to the promo shelf.”

Solebo reiterated that the agency had to seal off the Supermarket in the interest of the general consumers in the state, adding that LASCOPA would not fail to initiate litigation if retail shops and supermarkets do not stop displaying expired products for sale.

While charging consumers not to hesitate to report any supermarket or shops within the State where expired products are sold, Solebo enjoined residents to submit their complaints free of charge by visiting the office of LASCOPA at 2b, Soji Adepegba Close, off Allen Avenue, Ikeja or send correspondence to the Agency’s e-mail addresses: [email protected] and [email protected] for necessary action.

LAUTECH ‘Lecturer’s’ Sex Tape Leaks

Published

on

Ladoke Akintola University, LAUTECH, is back in the news due to a controversial development, with the sex tape of a ‘lecturer’ of the institution leaked on Twitter.

Recall that a student of the school was spotted in series of leaked sex footage a few weeks ago.

The institution while reacting to the development denied her being a student of the institution and condemned how the public had spoilt the name of the school.

“We don’t have anything to do with the lady you mentioned. There are many of them who did not even complete secondary school education but would go on social media to claim they are LAUTECH students,” the varsity had stated.

We don’t know her. LAUTECH is a school for serious-minded students and staff and not her type.”

However, on Thursday, another footage was spotted on Twitter with a lot of users claiming that the lecturer works for LAUTECH.

A middle-aged man in a video was filmed by a third party having his way with a lady whose face was shielded.

Meanwhile, the varsity is yet to react as of the time of this report.
