[ Masterweb Reports: Kogi East Youth Leaders write Tinubu ] - Good day our leader, we want to use this medium to facilitate you, or in other words congratulate Nigerians on the victory recorded in the concluded elections in March Last year, and your successful effort on the party APC. indeed you are a good leader, a good leader that has all qualities of leadership, a leader who lead by example, you are a priceless gift to humanity, a leader who sees the needs of his people and go for it, your solid foundation transform Lagos state to what it is today, We believe it will be applicable to Nigeria as a owl.

  We believe embrace and vote for the party APC because of you. You are a leader of justice, we no you will not see injustice and pass by.

   Since the death of our leader your friend prince Abubakar Audu, Kogi has being in controversial decision  concerning the election, of which the party APC went ahead to pick Yahaya Bello. This man Yahaya Bello is a political prostitute by joining another party called SDP, he worked for PDP to the extend PDP won in his polling unit, this man did not work for the party by campaigning with Audu for APC deliverance in
the state, he even took Audu to court that means his Audu's (political) enemy. All of a sudden be given Audu's victory this is injustice and ungodly.

   Secondly there is a mistake done by Faleke which need to be done for further movement, we all no political position is not inheritable, Audu's son cannot inherit his father's position moreover his not even a politician. Both Faleke and Audu's son has no ticket, the court may nullify if given. That is the opportunity Yahaya Bello used. Youth leaders in Kogi East have come to conclusion to correct that with your
intervention since is not late. 

  Sir many politician contested with Audu from the same constituency our opinion is that Faleke should go to Audu constituency pick an aspirant from there mean he should pick an aspirant that bought the form and follow through primaries. If that is done then the equation is balanced both of them can go for the race because that person has the nomination form and nomination form is prerequisite to that lacuna, (of which Audu's son do not have) which the court cannot nullify because the court
will see that if Faleke is not an aspirant the other person is an aspirant and follow electoral process. The youth has given full support for peace progress and prosperity. With this opinion Faleke and the eastern part of Kogi will gain their victory back, and Kogi will be in peace thank you.

Long live Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu
Long live Kogi State
Long live this administration,
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

[ Masterweb Reports: Comrade Lukman Writes President Buhari ] - Dear President Muhammadu,Buhari, I hope this letter finds you well. Let me first congratulate you on your effort to make Nigeria a great nation, the children unborn will forever remember an icon that came to save our country at a very difficult period in our nascent democracy.

Your efforts and endeavours to transform this country into a better and more industrious nation with robust economic growth are tremendous.

Several tangible projects have been initiated by your Government like the TSA (Treasure Single Account) , the construction of the standard gauge railway. These advancements deserve a big applause.

However, there’s one major challenge that is posing a huge threat to our peace, security and investor confidence.

Nigeria  has in the recent past suffered unspeakable atrocities at the hands of Bokoharam and many lives have been lost in the most brutal manner.

The responsibility of every government is to ensure its citizens are safe and protected from enemies – both within and outside.

Jubilee has suffered the biggest challenge in security, more than any other country in the region and this can only be attributed to police laxity and several loopholes in the security department.

Mr President, as much as the security docket remains a prerogative of the central government, the county administration should also be involved.

It has become a tradition that every financial year, the Government tables a massive master-plan budget. This budgetary allocation sets aside billions for the security docket, but we are yet to see the desired results. We won’t raise eyebrows even if the Government allocated trillions to security as long as we sleep with total peace of
mind.

But sadly, most of these allocations set aside for security forces only
end up being channelled to few individuals. We’ve heard countless times
of the poor living conditions among the police yet they are the people
who are supposed to be vigilant and ensure our safety. The ongoing probe
of Dauski arms scandal should be an eye opener to all, this have confirm
our fear off the massive rot in the Nigeria arm forces.

Mr President, the Government must up its game by uplifting the lives and
allowances for these hardworking officers who risk their lives everyday
just to make sure that we are safe. This will boost their morale, and
rampant cases of corruption in the police department will drop.

Nigeria must also equip itself with the latest intelligence gathering
techniques in order to check the runaway insecurity.

Invest in securing our border entry points Mr President rather than
foreign the joint military patrols if our borders. We need to rein in
terrorists along the border from the Chad and Camerooniab side.

More emphasis should be put on our borders, especially the ones between
Niger, Chad and Cameroon because they pose the biggest threat since
armed militant groups just stroll across the border after committing
crimes in Nigeria.

Your Government should also restructure and reinforce the intelligence
service since most of the atrocities committed could have been avoided.
Rumour has it that there has always been enough evidence on the looming
attacks but are always ignored.

Stringent measures must be put in place to curb the rising
radicalisation of young people and the extremist theories being taught
in various centres by radical imams.

More must be done in the search for the childbok girls, we must find
this girls and return them back to their parents. At least we have a
journalist who claimed they are still alive and he definitely knows how
to get to them, if a sincere effort is been made by the government.

Finally, I wish you all the best in the steps your government is taking
to make our country safe.

Chairman Nigeria Community in Ukraine

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release For Immediate Release ] -  Abia State Government Condemn the barbaric invasion of Hon Ezuiche Ubani's residence by men of the DSS. Abia State Government has frowned at the invasion of the residence of the state commissioner for Works, Hon Eziuche Ubani by a team of men of the army and state security services (SSS), describing it as condemnable, unwarranted and unacceptable.

To that end, it has requested an unreserved apology from the security agencies involved in the act, saying that government feels embarrassed by the action.
Addressing newsmen at the residence of Hon Ubani at Ovom in Obingwa LGA, the commissioner for Information and strategy, comrade Bonnie Iwuoha said the government demands explanation from the security agencies on why they invaded the residence of the commissioner and two-time member of the house of Representatives at the wee hours of the morning.

According to him, Hon Ubani is peace loving and the government feels concerned and embarrassed that this sort of thing is happening to an official of the state government.

The commissioner used the forum to call on those funding disturbances in the state to stop forth with as government will not condone the violence in any guise.
Briefing newsmen on the attack, Hon Ubani explained that his residence was invaded about 2am by a team of men of the SSS and the Nigerian Army who came in 6 Hilux vans, broke his gate and gained entry into his house by climbing the wall and held him hostage for 4 hours.

According to him, the team led by Stephen Agu of the Directorate of State Services (DSS), Abuja said they heard a report from the opposition that he was stock piling arms and training people to assassinate leaders of the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA.

He said the team thoroughly searched his house including the water tank, broke his ward robe, climbed the ceiling and inflicted injuries on his driver in his boys quarters after which they wrote on a paper that they found nothing incriminating in the house.
The commissioner for Works said that if state institutions will be used to harass innocent Nigerians then he wonders where the country is heading to.

[ Masterweb Reports: Dr. Peregrino Brimah reports ] - It is now two weeks after the December 12th incident in Zaria that left as many as 1000 Nigerians dead. Two weeks is very significant because this is the same length of time it took for the then Jonathan regime to acknowledge that our Chibok girls had been abducted.
 
 
Sadly, two weeks after the Zaria massacre the Buhari-led Federal government is yet to acknowledge and even vaguely comment on the events that led to 1000 dead in various locations across Zaria.
 
Do these lives not matter?
 
 
There have been resounding condemnations of what many accept to be an extrajudicial and excessive use of force by the Nigerian military. The Sultan of Sokoto led  NSCIA has condemned the indiscriminate termination of sacred life.
 
The Human Rights Watch and Nigerian Human Rights commission have likewise condemned the unjustified massacre at sites uninvolved in the road blockade.
 
Similarly many of us including the Islamic Movement have condemned the militant excesses of those who blocked the path of Chief of Staff Buratai.
 
No prior persecution and earlier provocation by allegedly staging armed soldiers with boxes of extra ammunition should warrant a stick and stone wielding armed blockade of the road leading to the center; yet the Nigerian government has condemned neither action and remains committed to a scary, deadly, conspicuous silence.
 
 
Are the military above the law? This is a question we are asking.
 
Nigerians are grateful to the military for their civic duty in the war against Boko Haram where the military Chiefs are meant to be stationed but likewise we cannot forget the altruistic continuous contributions of various civilians, hunters and the Civilian-JTF who have been and continue to be an equal force in securing Nigeria. No one should be above the law and in each case of civilian obstruction, the right thing to do is call the police.
 
 
Where Nigeria lacked a government for the most of 30 years many of us had to constitute as parallel governments including the very Civilian-JTF and media as a parallel security departments to protect Nigeria from total collapse. Should we be rewarded by death?
 
 
A campaign of calumny under the watch and perhaps sponsorship of agencies of this government proves a lack of learning from recent history: when the Jonathan government waged the most expensive campaign of calumny against the person of Muhammadu Buhari, making him the least likely candidate to ever win an election, it was we civilians and not the military who worked day and by candlelight to clear the President of the wicked accusations. 
 
Is death the payment for our work?
 
Is this silence and promotion of same against others when members of the new administration make reckless blunders the reward we get?
 
 
Shall we in turn concoct deadly slander on another?
 
Your government is not infallible.
 
The Chief of army staff is not infallible.
 
No one is more important than Nigeria and the truth before God.
 
Neither one single nor 10 million Nigerians should be sacrificed for the career of a single careless General. One in 12 of about 80 million Nigerian Muslims are faithfuls of the Islamic movement according to Pew polls; these include the topmost Islamic leaders and Ministers. We cannot afford to alienate and lose these millions as a nation and politically in a true effort to rebuild this nation and I hope our plan is not to kill them all.
 
The crisis we read of in Sudan, the Congo and Kenya with some groups who think they are ethnically or religiously superior to others, supported by a government, killing other minority groups starts off just as we are witnessing in the North today under your watch. Is this what you want? In one place you can be majority, but as the Lord made the world, in another you may be minority. We should not be pawns of the campaigns of the fanatic Arab monarchs' mischievous billions.
 
There are other ways for the Nigerian government and police to deal with the 'nuiscance' they are perturbed with by the Islamic Movement and all other religious movements in Nigeria most of which do worse than just block roads across the nation on their service days but are also involved in high stake looting of public funds, laundering, frank terrorism and gun smuggling.
 
We know many prominent Northern Islamic leaders who have called for deadly riots in the past. We know of members of this very administration who have likewise been accused of directly or indirectly provoking deadly armed protests. Without justice there can never be peace. It is the duty of the mobile police to control armed protest, no one should be above the law or no one will believe in the law.
 
I have been slandered as being Shia. Whereas even 'Shia' reject the name. I do not care. I supported a new government for justice and equality without which there cannot be peace. The Muslim Quran says that which means in Chapter 5:8
 
"...and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do."
 
Also we have perhaps all read the famous statement by Niemöller:

 
"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

 
"Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

 
"Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

 
"Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."
 
#IAmZakzaky. I will continue to talk. I will not tire.

[ Masterweb Reports: Dr. James C. Agazie reports ] - This is the time we make the New Year Resolutions for 2016. Are we going to make resolutions we can keep or ignore? A resolution is a decree, declaration, or decision we make. It can be a personal ruling, promise, pledge, or oath made to simplify our life, things we intend to keep, do, or make part of our activities during the New Year. Problem is either we don’t often intend to keep our resolutions or we lack the zeal or motivation to do so. Sometimes, we do the opposite of our resolutions and sometimes we do things we never resolved to do in the first place. Here are a few resolutions you might consider making at this beginning of 2016 Please add to this list as you deem necessary adding your name to the resolutions as follows: I, --------------------------------------------(eg. I, John Mike)
 
1.      Resolve to take those extra 15-45 pounds of flesh off my body through appropriate exercise and being aware of the dangers excess body weight can create for my heart, liver, lungs, and self-esteem. 
 
2.      Resolve to examine what I eat that messes up my body by looking at labels on things I buy at Kroger, Wal-Mart, or favorite grocery store,  at the levels of cholesterol, trans fat, calories, sugars, and sodium my food items may contain. it is not always what I eat that keeps me fat, and obese, but it can be what is contained in what I eat.
 
3.      Resolve to join a yoga class, weight-loss clinic.  aerobics, or an exercise class at my local YMCA. Why don’t I increase recreational activities that include cycling, jogging, swimming, dancing, or meditation?
 
4.      Resolve to increase my intake of clean water to cleanse my body of impurities.
 
5.      Resolve to reduce my consumption of chemicals contained in alcohol. Pepsi, Coca cola, Sprite, and other carbonated drinks. I have a few friends just out of surgeries for kidney stones after taking too much carbonated drinks and not enough water.
 
6.      Resolve to live an active life that involves moving around rather than sitting sedentary in front of television or with gossiping telephone in hand.
 
7.      Resolve to take a closer look at how I spend or waste resources. Do I shop till I drop or do I look in my garage or storage space to find items I can reuse rather buying stuffs I not need? Do I buy things I want but do not necessarily need? Examples are anew vehicle vs.  a slightly used one, a brand name medication vs. generic. I can spend thousands of dollar saved from wise shopping on some other more pressing needs.
 
8.      Resolve to keep your brain from being dead or atrophied through inactivity and through engaging in intellectual pursuits like going back to school to take up some academic or technical skills training. It makes more sense to acquire skills right now so that “ I’m prepared when the right job comes along” than that “the right job is here now but I am not prepared for it.”
 
9.      Resolve to improve your relationship with family members, including relationship with your God, wife, your husband, children, and extended family members.
 
10.  Resolve to stay away from being too angry with people who envy and annoy me or rub you the wrong way because excessive, unresolved rage or resentment can damage my  heart or lead to depression.
 
11.  Resolve to not let pursuit of money control my very existence (mind, body, and soul), but to be content with what I have; and be thankful I’ve made it this far.
 
12.  Resolve to let go of resentments and daily forgive those who trespass against me.
 
13.  Resolve to widen my horizon by making new friends with someone from a different Nigerian tribe, religion, or social circle.

[ Masterweb Reports: Igbo Ekunie Imitative reports ] - We the Igbo Ekunie Initiative, IEI, comprising of individuals in Nigeria and the Diaspora; are shocked beyond belief at the indiscriminate killing of unarmed pro-Biafran protesters in Onitsha at a scale that clearly and unequivocally constitute crimes against humanity. Amongst the most fundamental freedoms of mankind are the freedoms of expression and of peaceful protests more so in a democracy where such freedoms are supposed to be the defining essence of society and government. It is therefore not only morally repugnant but utterly abhorrent that the security services on the under “change” President Buhari, IGP Arase and COAS Buratai Tukur chose to indulge in a mindless attack on our collective humanity by so brazenly killing peaceful protesters who were exercising their inalienable and constitutional rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful protests. The latest is the killing on December 17 by members of the Joint Task Force (JTF) at Niger Head Bridge of four MASSOB/IPOB members celebrating the release of Nnamdi Kanu, by an Abuja High Court.
 
For the avoidance of doubt, no excuse or circumstance can justify the cowardly, barbaric, morally obscene and criminally culpable indiscriminate massacre of women and young men some of whom have been identified as Miss Anthonia Nkiruka Ikeayionwu, Miss Felicia Egwuatu, Kenneth Ogadinma, Chima Onus, Angus Chikwado and many others yet to be identified just because they were engaging in peaceful protests. Such callous and criminal acts should be a shock to the conscience of the nation and a reminder that President Buhari and his security chiefs are gradually and surely dragging the nation back to the dark days of tyranny and despicable human rights violations that characterised erstwhile malevolent military regimes.
 
This dastardly assault on peaceful protesters violates the African charter on human rights, the United Nations charter on people’s rights and all international treaties and conventions to which Nigeria is signatory. We therefore accordingly call for the prosecution of all the officers and security personnel implicated in this heinous mass slaughter of innocent civilians. We also use this opportunity to notify the United Nations, European Union, Commonwealth nations, African Union, Amnesty International, Greenpeace, Human rights watch and other rights organisations of ongoing human rights violations under President Buhari, IGP Arase, COAS Tukur Buratai, and other security officers.
 
Indeed, the notoriety of Nigeria’s security services as it concerns extra-judicial executions and other human rights violations is already well known and documented being the reason for which the “Leahy act” which banned the sale of weapons to Nigerian security services was enacted by the United States government. All other rights respecting nations have likewise banned the sale of weapons to Nigerian security services for the same reasons. We make bold therefore to state that the Onitsha massacre is only a continuation and confirmation of a long and notorious record of human rights violations that the Nigerian security services already stands globally indicted for. We hereby serve notice that pursuant to the charter and articles of the International Criminal Court (ICC) as it concerns crimes against humanity, we shall be lodging a formal complaint against President Muhammadu Buhari, IGP Solomon Arase and COAS Tukur Buratai in the first instance in the International Criminal Court (ICC).
 
We shall also be pursuing other legal channels which include individually suing the indicted officials in the European Court of Human Rights to open channels for their arrest and prosecution whenever such officials visit any country in the EU. In closing, we warn that from now henceforth any killing of innocent protesters will be additionally lodged with the International Court of Justice as we build our case against those who continue to engage in such heinous crimes against all civilised norms in the 21st century.

[ Masterweb Reports: Comrade Ahmed Omeiza Lukman reports ] - Your excellency,  Congratulations on your victory during the supplementary election. We look forward to having a governor as loyal and proud as the communities he represents, who believes in Kogi state's assets and potential, and who does his due diligence to support the development of local independent businesses, a growing economy, diverse culture and  sustainable future. 
         
Just over some months back, you unveiled in Buffalo your Kogi state Works agenda, a plan that will set Kogi State on a path to long-term prosperity. With great conviction, you committed to aggressive business development efforts and unique solutions to both sustain and revitalize the state economy with particular attention to Ajaokuta iron and steel company. Your proposed initiatives included lowering the cost of doing business in the state, cutting through bureaucratic “red tape” and putting Kogi people back to work through programs like the “Jobs Now” tax credits.Your programs are praiseworthy and necessary for creating a “business-friendly” environment in which entrepreneurs have more support and fewer restrictions from the government.
 
Kogi State can benefit greatly from a newly generated tax base that these plans would produce, enable the filling of budgetary gaps, and significantly reduce the
deficit.But don’t stop there. Set an even bolder agenda and then take swift action necessary to see it through.Make our state a leading green example through legislation and executive actions that promote and incentive real change and long-term sustainability.Good practices should not be mistaken for good marketing – for too long, a good image (often without substance to back it up) has defined the criteria for tax and investment incentives and government purchasing preferences. Instead, these economic tools should be reserved for sustainable businesses that
enhance our community, believe in the triple bottom line (people, planet, profit), and inspire others to do the same.  
 
Mr. Governor-Elect, we support you as you strive for a local independent economy for Kogi State and hope that a new administration also ushers in a new era – one
of the social entrepreneur.

 [ Masterweb Reports: Press Release For Immediate Release ] - (Onitsha Nigeria, 3rd December 2015)-The leaderships of the Southeast based Coalition of Human Rights Organizations; comprising the International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law (Intersociety), Anambra State Branch of the Civil Liberties Organization (CLO), the Center for Human Rights & Peace Advocacy (CHRPA), Human Rights Club(HRC) (a project of LRRDC), Southeast Good Governance Forum (SGGF), Forum for Equity, Justice & Defense of Human Rights (FEJDHR), Society Advocacy Watch Project (SPAW), Anambra Human Rights Forum (AHRF), the International Solidarity for Peace & Human Rights Initiative (INTERSOLIDARITY) and the Street Law Africa (LawAfrica) are alarmed, shocked and dismayed over the killing on Wednesday (2nd December 2015) of peaceful and non violent protesters in various parts of Onitsha particularly along the Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu’s Gateway at Onitsha Niger Bridge and the Obodoukwu Road in Ogbaru LGA of Anambra State; which led to the death of at least ten (10) innocent members of the public and injuring of scores of others.
 

 
While six peaceful protesters/picketers were killed at the Ojukwu Gateway (Niger Bridgehead) by soldiers, four others including a mai suya (hit by a stray bullet) were killed by SARS and Mobile Police squads along Obodoukwu Road in the nearby Ogbaru Local Government Area. Among the ten peaceful protesters violently killed by members of Governor Willie Obiano’s Joint Security Taskforce was late Miss Anthonia Nkiruka Ikeanyionwu; 21years old student of the Federal College of Education, Technical in Umunze, Orumba South LGA of Anambra State. She hailed from Adazi-Nnukwu in Anambra State. Another person was earlier shot and killed by soldiers at the Gateway in the night of 1st December 2015 after a brief interrogation. He was an Igbo driver of a long truck parked in support of the vigil/picketing. He was dragged down from his steering, briefly interrogated and shot dead.
 

 
We wish to recall that tens of thousands of peaceful protesters coordinated by the leaderships of two self determination pressure groups: the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and a splinter body of the Movement for Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), led by Comrade Uchenna Madu had on Tuesday,1st December 2015, converged at the Niger Bridgehead (Ojukwu Gateway) in Onitsha for a three day peaceful vigil/picketing to press for the unconditional release of director of the Radio Biafra London (RBL) and head of the IPOB, Citizen Nnamdi Kanu, who has been held extra judicially and unconstitutionally by the DSS since 14th October 2015.

 
 
The Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu Gateway made up of the Onitsha Niger Bridgehead and the Onitsha Upper Iweka axis is considered a freedom square by teaming and ardent followers, supporters and students of late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu and had in recent time served as a square for free speech. The federal approval for renaming of the area after late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, was secured by former Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State in 2012 leading to its commissioning with the erected statue of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu by former President Goodluck Jonathan on 30th August 2012.

 
 
The teeming supporters of the two self determination agitation groups had peacefully observed their vigil/picketing without molesting anybody except blockage of the Gateway for hours to pressurize the Buhari administration to release their leader. The vigil drew overwhelming sympathies and supports leading to other members of the public donating and sending cartons of bottled water, gala and short breads as well as foods to them. The vigil/picketing remained peaceful and lasted from Tuesday, 1st December to around noon of Wednesday 2nd December 2015 when Governor Willie Obiano directed members of his Joint Security Taskforce made up of soldiers, mobile police, navy, SARS and civil defense corps to storm the Gateway and forcefully disperse the peaceful picketers and clear them off the Gateway. Governor Obiano’s militarist directive was further reinforced by another militarist order of the embattled Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase; who ordered his sub commanders in the Southeast and the South-south zones, composed of senior police officers of northern origin; to “maximally” (excessive force/shoot-at-sight) clamp down on the peaceful protesters.
 

 
It is in total compliance of Governor Willie Obiano and IGP Arase’s militarist orders that the Joint Security Taskforce particularly the soldiers of the Onitsha Military Cantonment stormed the Gateway with riffles loaded with live- bullets and opened fire on innocent and peaceful protesters. Some of those killed were shot and killed at close range. One of them is late Miss Anthonia Nkiruka Ikeanyionwu. Pictures of those lying critically injured in various private hospitals in Onitsha and its environs clearly showed how they were shot in various terminal parts of their bodies including chest, abdomen, lung, neck and head parts of their bodies. Some of the shot victims may not survive the wounds. The reckless shooting and killing of the unarmed picketers later resulted to civil disturbances including burning of tyres and blockage of intercity roads, etc.

 
 
We had in our joint statement of 13th November 2015 raised an alarm following lethal warning issued by the Nigerian Army against those protesting peacefully for the release of Citizen Nnamdi Kanu and assertion of their right to self determination. Our alarm followed age-long gross unprofessionalism inherent in management of the country’s military-civilian relationship particularly as it concerns crowd control and allowing members of the public to peacefully and nonviolently press home their grievances against the government and its policies; through universally approved methods such as picketing, vigil, procession or protest. We had in the same joint statement exposed the desperation of elements loyal to the Buhari administration to possibly plant hired elements through some amenable State Governors among the peaceful protesters so as to make such processions or peaceful protests turn or wear violent outlook for the purpose of hiding under same to crush and mass kill them. We also suspected deeply desperate plans or moves by the elements loyal to the Buhari administration to rope in Citizen Nnamdi Kanu through implanted felonies. This can come in the form of planting and commission of sinister acts for the purpose of heaping the criminal culpability on Citizen Nnamdi Kanu.

 
 
This is more so when it is now clear to every Tom, Dick and Harry that the Buhari administration through its DSS has no indictable and convictable evidence to try Citizen Nnamdi Kanu both in its prosecutorial charge of criminal intimidation, managing and belonging to unlawful society and criminal conspiracy and its investigatory accusation of involvement in terrorism and terrorism financing. It sounds legally and prosecutorially laughable that a man campaigning for his group’s right to political self determination in far away United Kingdom, came to Nigeria through its southern border, governed by the Criminal Code (applicable in southern Nigeria) and got arrested in the south and taken to the north governed by the Penal Code (applicable in northern Nigeria) and charged for offenses contained in the criminal law (penal code) of the north. We see it as a height of trial by gambling or ordeal or trumped up charge.

 
 
The case of late Ken Saro Wiwa is still fresh in our memories. For want of indictable and convictable evidence, the Federal Government of Nigeria under the Abacha’s infamous military regime used “strawmen” to cause implanted felony of murder and related others and politically nailed the late Saro Wiwa and his associates. One of disrespected members of the Bench, called “Judge Auta” was ferried from the Bench to judicially cement their State murder, which was carried out in November 1995. Today, the like of Shell is yet to recover from its infamous corporate roles in the State murder. We shall not be surprised if such sore and sad history repeats itself in the case of Citizen Nnamdi Kanu. This is because the reign of State terror that was the order of the day then, is fully back in the present administration.

 
 
In all these, the dastardly role of the embattled Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase is not surprising to our Coalition. His resort to use of blood of the innocent and peaceful protesters to save his embattled office is not surprising to our Coalition as well. Intersociety had recently stated clearly that the emergence of a dictator or a tyrant under civilian democracy automatically leads to conversion and conformity of all State institutions and their headships according to the dictator’s whims and caprices. Any institution and its headship that refuses to be dictatorially shackled and manacled by the dictator, is automatically kicked out.

 

We are compelled to hold that IGP Arase does not mind killing vicariously hundreds, if not thousands of peaceful and non violent protesters or picketers of the Southeast Nigeria so as to save his embattled job. Having not been appointed by his new general overseer (President Muhammadu Buhari), we sympathize with IGP Arase over his stiff battles to save his job and be re-baptized Buhari Boy; but using vicariously the blood of innocent and peaceful picketers at the highly revered and idolized Ojukwu Gateway to achieve this sole ambition of his; amounts to turning himself vicariously into a merchant of death and human misery.
 

 
It is also sad and shocking that when other Nigeria’s security chiefs like the Chief of Army Staff and Air Force and Defense Staff chiefs are busy visiting the insurgency war fronts in the Northeast, IGP Arase is busy visiting a federal minister of interior and threatening and ordering mass killing of innocent and peaceful self determination protesters and picketers. The Nigeria Police Force under IGP Solomon Arase has for long woefully and shamefully abandoned its constitutional duties of management of internal security; a strategic police function now virtually left in the hands of other members of the armed forces; whose roles in internal security management in Nigeria are constitutionally and statutorily supplementary. Despite being the largest officially armed body in Nigeria cornering over 30% of defense budgets every year, the NPF under IGP Arase has shamelessly failed Nigerians and continued to fail till date. If the Nigeria Police Force cannot control peaceful and non violent picketers without mass-killing them, is it the rampaging Boko Haram insurgents that it can control?
 

 
It is sad and shocking too that Nigeria of 21st century under a Police IG with double university masters degrees still applies excessive or lethal force to control or disperse non violent and peaceful protesters and picketers. Storming picketing scenes with live bullets and guns and opening fire on defenseless protesters are a height of policing crudity under the headship of an educated illiterate IGP. By using the phrase “maximal clamp down on protesters” that literally means “shoot-at-sight”, Mr. Solomon Arase is unfit to continue as Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police. Despite the existence in the NPF of “the anti-riot police department” or “Mobile Police Force”, the latest mass murder has extensively exposed the Force as the Police Force of the Yore and incurable crudity.

 
 
For the avoidance of doubt, there are various techniques and tools designed globally for crowd control or riot control as case may be; without resorting to use of deadly weapons, force or violence. Older tools or gadgets for crowd or riot control are batons and whips; which are still in use till date. Other modern crowd control tools or gadgets are tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets and electric tasers. There are also long acoustic devices, water cannons, armored personnel carriers, armored vehicles equipped with tear gas and mild hot water sprayers, aerial surveillance, police dogs, police horses, etc. Also part of the modern crowd control toolkits are protective devices such as riot helmets, face visors, body armor (vests, neck protectors, knee pads, etc) and gas masks and riot shields. A number of electronic security devices have also been designed for modern crowd control. They include closed circuit television, tracking and detective devices, etc. It is sad to observe that in the instant case, none of the forgoing was deployed and used. Instead, live ammunitions and open and close range shootings were “maximally applied” in accordance with IGP Arase’s murderous directive.

 
 
As for Governor Willie Obiano, his role in the bloody incident, which he confirmed and justified in his late night public broadcast; is not surprising to our Coalition. He has moved further from a report of encouraging mobilization of mushroom and leprous groups for the purpose of disassociation of the People of the Southeast from the legitimate, peaceful and non violent agitation for political self determination, to mobilization of his Joint Security Taskforce to mow down innocent picketers and protesters for no just cause. We have also read his executive statement and found in same an element of confirmation of our earlier disclosure of desperation of some elements loyal to the Buhari administration to implant felonies within the ranks of IPOB protesters so as to rope in Citizen Nnamdi Kanu and made the peaceful and non violent protests to turn violent and bloody.
 

 
By the Governor’s assertion to the effect that among those killed in the protest were two police sergeants; we are still at loss as where, when and how the police sergeants were killed. We call on the Governor to publicly update and furnish Nigerians with concrete information regarding whether the “two police sergeants” were killed by gun shots, clubbing, fists, burning or lynching as well as who killed them, why they were killed and hospitals or mortuaries where their bodies were deposited.
 
We also demand to know where and when they were killed as well as their photos and station(s) where they are attached to and their service particularly or identities. Failure of His Excellency, Governor Willie Obiano to furnish the public with the concrete information under demand in time of the white law and immediacy will expressly lend credence to our strong suspicion of some elements within the Buhari administration’s desperation to implant violence into the non violent agitation so as to use it as an excuse to let loose in its use of deadly force against the non violent agitators as well as procurement of concocted evidence and compromised witnesses to get Citizen Nnamdi Kanu rot in jail at all costs and possibly exterminated in extra penal custody.
 

 
In all, we are not only demanding for immediate resignation of the embattled Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase for his murderous shoot-at-sight order and vicarious roles in the Onitsha Killings, but it is also important to inform that the Nigeria Police Force under him is already under the jurisdictional watch of the International Criminal Court as compilation and computation of cases of all police and military related extra judicial killings in the country are steadily in progress. For failing to heed our warning of 13th November 2015, we will be glad to ensure that IGP Arase and his named sub commanders are handcuffed and flown to The Hague soon for the purpose of making them to face international trial for crimes against humanity.
 

 
On the other hand, we call on the IPOB and its teeming followers to remain peaceful, non violent and law abiding at all times, not minding the State violence recently visited unleashed on them. They must also watch their back and be extremely vigilant so as to ward off sustained efforts of some commissioned elements within the Federal Government particularly its security establishments and stooges within the Southeast Governors Forum to implant elements of violence in their agitations so as to destroy their globally approved method of non violence and peaceful means and cash in on same for the purpose of deploying and applying deadly force or violence to further kill them in thousands and rope in Citizen Nnamdi Kanu on other trumped up charges or sustenance of its current trumped up charge of terrorism and terrorism financing.
 

 
The leadership of the IPOB is reminded again that our collective advocacy support to it will be withdrawn once it is discovered concretely that it has abandoned its peaceful and non violence methods. In organizing its future peaceful and non violent processions, protests or picketing at any public place such as along Ojukwu Gateway, efforts must be made to lessen social hardships that may incur by road users; by not blocking main lanes of the Expressway. Such non violent processions, protests or picketing should also be organized periodically and not repeatedly. The Nigerian security forces particularly the Army and the NPF must stop using deadly force or violence to control peaceful and non violent processions, protests or picketing. Modern methods and toolkits of crowd control highlighted above must be learned, procured and applied to the letter henceforth. Those who participated in the Onitsha Killings particularly members of the Onitsha Military Cantonment, the Ogbaru Navy outpost, Mobile Police personnel and the SARS must be fished out, dismissed, tried and jailed for unlawful killings and related unprofessional conducts.
 

 
Finally, we are not unaware of reckless accusations, invitations and harassments of some leading citizens of the Southeast zone by the country’s secret and open police establishments whereby they are accused of “sponsoring our Coalition”. It baffles our Coalition to note the steady decay of the country’s intelligence establishments and other securitization agencies to the extent that they now see critical and constructive advocacy positions being taken by our credible and independent rights based Civil Society Organizations in this era of global village or computerization; for the purpose of collective interest and development of Nigeria and Nigerians, as “being sponsored or financed” by politicians. We are not surprised at this sad development. This is because we are in a country headed by a presidency that does anything to suppress merit and impeccability of character. A government that stenches in bribery, corruption, nepotism, favoritism and primordialism will always hold a view that everything is for sale; more so when billions of naira of the tax payers funds were recently deployed to hire and compromise mushroom, faceless and conscienceless groups and individuals to disassociate themselves and the people of the Southeast from the Zone’s agitation for legitimate political self determination.

 

 

 
As we write, the website of our lead-partner; International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law was attacked and shut down penultimate Monday. It has remained shut till date. The site administrator when reached disclosed receiving a couple of emails from some suspected elements within the country’s intelligence establishments querying the rationale behind Intersociety’s advocacy campaign for the release of Citizen Nnamdi Kanu. We wish to publicly disclose to the DSS and the NPF that the sponsors of our researches and publications are cheapness and ease of internet or World Wide Web; and free of charge publication of our reports and publications by our ardent friends in the online and print media operating locally and internationally. The DSS and the NPF are also free to reach out to them and ask them how much we pay them to publish our press materials. We collectively resolute and firm! It is Aluta Continua!! Victoria Acerta!!!
 

 
We pray the Almighty God to grant the immortal souls of the massacred innocent citizens including late Miss Anthonia Nkiruka Ikeanyionwu, who died tragically in the Onitsha Police/Military Killings; directed and vicariously coordinated by Governor Willie Obiano and IGP Solomon Arase, a permanent peace and resting place in His Heavenly abode. May the just and legitimate cause that led to their brutal killing remains the candle of hope for the enslaved, shackled and manacled citizens of Nigeria now and immortally!!!
