Anambra Governorship Election: Police To Deploy 21,084 Personnel

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Ibrahim Idris, has said the force would deploy 21,084 policemen to Anambra for the Nov. 28 governorship election.

Idris made the disclosure at the Nigerian Civil Society Situation Room Dialogue session in Abuja.

He said that 17,320 policemen would be deployed to the 4,330 polling units across the state while 280 of them would be deployed to the collation centres.

The inspector-general said 2,484 of the security agents would be deployed to 414 major streets in the state throughout the election period.

He said that the Force Headquarters would provide additional 300 vehicles to the 80 operational vehicles in the Police Command in Anambra.

Idris said that additional police mobile force units had also been deployed to Anambra and other states in the South-East and South-South for the governorship election.

The IGP explained that the deployment was to ensure that criminal elements were removed from the states before the election.

Charly Boy Hired To Attack Buhari, Okorocha- Imo State Government

The government of Imo State has alleged that Mr. Charles Oputa aka Charly Boy, Convener of OurMumuDonDo Movement, was hired by the enemies of President Muhammadu Buhari and Mr. Rochas Okorocha, Imo State governor, to damage the reputation of the two men and their administrations. The allegation was made in a statement issued by Mr. Sam Onwumeodo, Chief Press Secretary to the Imo State governor.                    

According to Mr. Onwumeodo, Charly Boy was hired by Mr. Okorocha's opponents in 2014 and premiered his attacks on the governor during the burial of his father, Justice Chukwudifu Oputa. The attack, said the state government, was after Charly Boy had received financial support from the government for the burial of the late jurist.                          

The Imo State government alleged that Charly Boy was recruited this year by opponents of President Buhari, who wanted to exploit the illness of the President through the demand for his resignation by protests headlined by OurMumuDonDo Movement.

Aside from the financial support extended to Charly Boy, the state government said it built the road to his late father's house as well as a High Court Complex named after the jurist.
"Charly Boy personally came to Government House to collect. But before the burial, they told him that the former President had directed that he should not allow Governor Okorocha to talk at the burial service, not minding that protocol demanded that the governor should talk.

Acting on the script given to him, Charly Boy snatched the microphone from a sitting governor, who came to honor his late father and who also gave money for the burial. He did that to satisfy Governor Okorocha’s opponents and see whether that could help them in the 2015 election," said the statement,        
Till date, it added,  Charly Boy has not apologized to Mr. Okorocha and has continued to attack the administration of the governor. The former President of Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria, the state government equally alleged, was at the weekend in Owerri, where he insulted Mr. Okorocha. This, said Mr. Onwumeodo, was part of the script.                              

"He deceived some notable Human Rights people like Professor Chidi Odinkalu into coming to Owerri over the relocation of Ekeukwu Market without such innocent figures knowing he was recruited since 2014 against Governor Okorocha. He looks for every opportunity to malign the governor," he said.

Mr. Onwumeodo wondered if President Buhari was the first president to be ill for OurMumuDonDo Movement to demand his resignation.

"It is important to ask Charly Boy where he was for the 16 years the previous administrations mismanaged the fortunes of this country. And they have so greatly empowered him that today, he moves in lengthy convoy with not less than 15 assorted jeeps with an avalanche of security aides who look overfed," said the Imo State governor's spokesman.

I’ll Fight Corruption Better Than Buhari- Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has vowed to fight corruption like never before if given the chance to preside over Nigeria’s affairs.

Atiku also challenged those he described as his self-righteous political enemies to either prove his alleged corrupt activities or keep quiet.

The APC chieftain said this during a facility tour of the new ultra-modern Yaliam Press Limited in Jabi area of Abuja on Monday.

This was contained in a statement by his Media Office in Abuja.

Atiku was quoted as saying, “he would fight corruption like never before if he is given the opportunity to preside over the affairs of the country.”

The former Vice-President said, “It is sickening to continue to regurgitate allegations of corruption against me by people who have failed to come forward with a single shred of evidence of my misconduct while in office.”

He noted that people who lacked initiative, personal resourcefulness and ideas about wealth creation, “always assume that a man cannot build himself without stealing.”

“People who are bereft of ideas about entrepreneurial spirit always think that everyone else is a thief just like them,”  he added.


900 Benue Flood Victims Treated For Malaria

The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, has said that the health facilities at the Internally Displaced Persons camps and the health condition of flood victims taking refuge at the Internally Displaced Persons camps in Makurdi were satisfactory.

However, about 900 victims of flood at the IDPs camp have been treated for malaria.

Adewale said this during an assessment visit to the IDPs camps at the Makurdi International Market and the Presidential Task Force Compound at Abagena, North Bank on Monday.

According him, the health needs of the IDPs at the two camps were being met which, he said, was a reflection of the combined efforts of the Benue State Government and the Nigerian Air Force Medical Outposts at the camps.

Adewole said, “My visit was to donate relief materials including drugs and insecticide-treated nets and to also assess the health needs of the victims with a view to complementing the efforts of the Benue State Government and the Nigerian Air Force.

“I believe there would be more support from the Federal Government soon.”

Director In Lagos Ministry Of Youths Commits Suicide
 A Director in Lagos State Ministry of Youths, identified as Mr Oludare Buraimoh, has committed suicide by hanging in his room.

Buraimoh, who lives at Unity Estate, Phase II, Gbonagun, Abeokuta, took his life at about 4.00 p.m. on Monday after attending to his son Dotun, who was sick.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), many sympathisers, who spoke in silent tones about the ugly incident, were seen in the compound.

Dotun told NAN that the incident happened around 4.00 p.m. after his father gave him a drug to treat malaria.

Dotun said;

“We were both at home; he came to give me a drug and left me thinking he was going to retire to his room. But when I did not hear his voice I called him, but no response came.

“I, thereafter, went to his room only to find him hanging on the ceiling with a traditional Aso Oke tied to his neck and a stool with which he committed the suicide.

“I then alerted the neighbours, who in turn, told me to alert the police, which I did,”

The wife of the deceased said she was yet to come to terms with her husband’s despicable act.

She said;

“I don’t know what came over him, it is inexplicable.

“We have been surviving through the thick and thin and now that we ought to sit down and enjoy after all the years of toiling, he decided to take his life.

“He did not show any sign of depression at the time he committed suicide.

“He was in high spirit, what led him to this remained a riddle,”

The Obantoko Police Station, where the incident was reported, confirmed the suicide.

DSP Rasheed Olaleye of the station confirmed the incident, but declined to give further comments, saying that the DPO would be in the best position to handle the case.

The body of the deceased has been deposited at General Hospital, Abeokuta, after clearance from the police.
