TERRORISM: NIGERIAN’S MOST RECENT LUCRATIVE BUSINESS A POSER WITH  FRUIT AS NEED FOR SELF-DEFENSE

TERRORISM: NIGERIAN’S MOST RECENT LUCRATIVE BUSINESS A POSER WITH FRUIT AS NEED FOR SELF-DEFENSE

BY Jubal Free-man Dabo [email protected] THE OPENING Shall we live or die trusting in a government that is sure not going to salvage us from the chains of destruction? Sure, every human fellow that shall allow himself a victim where his/her strength is worth useful shall stand in judgement to answer for this sacred life he/she refused to protect. Hence, the call for self defence in an era where the hope turns the prime hurt. It is crystal clear terrorism has now found a place in the heart of each and every Nigerian with total disregard to age or experience. The sound of guns today rather than being an unfamiliar thing causes and argument between children of nursery school age. Listen to these kids watching movies today, the argument will be whether or not the sounds of guns ...
PDP, APC: THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THEIR SIMILARITY

PDP, APC: THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THEIR SIMILARITY

Culture & Lifestyle, Human Rights, Politics
Before the advent of the APC administration and during the electioneering period, Nigerians (actually gullible Nigerians), believed Nigeria's problems then, were handmade by the PDP, at least that was what the incumbent APC made the masses believe and thus used in gaining acceptance. Hapless Nigerians were told change is here, and sadly they were a sucker for it hook, line and sinker. Seeing how the people fell for the charade, APC led government even after settling down in office several months on, kept blaming the PDP years for everything they (APC) have failed to do. For whatever it is worth, lies can only be sustained with further lies, but soon the whole thing will crumble like a house made of cards. Therefore to keep these pack of lies 'truthful', more lies and even more lies mus...

Southern Kaduna Killings: Don’t drag us into your propaganda – Army warns Miyetti Allah

The Nigerian Army has denied the allegation that soldiers killed 17 cattle breeders in southern Kaduna, warning herdsmen from dragging it into any propaganda.  Haruna Usman, chairman of the Kaduna state chapter of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), had alleged that the attack happened in Daile Alkariyo village in Jama’a local government area of Kaduna state, on Monday. http://www.skvoices.com/armed-herdsmen-killed-3-southern-kaduna-army-arrest-3/ “When the security personnel arrived, they started to kill our people. As I speak to you now, about 17 of our members have been killed and 47 houses burnt." “The military men burnt their homes and killed them. In fact one old man, almost 75 years old, was shot on the leg, he has only one leg, but they shot
Policy incoherence fuels herdsmen attacks

Policy incoherence fuels herdsmen attacks

Culture & Lifestyle, Human Rights, Politics, Security, Southern Kaduna
By Emmanuel Onwubiko There is now a commonality of opinion that the rate of violent attacks of farmers all across Nigeria by armed Fulani herdsmen skyrocketed since the emergence of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari who by birth is a Fulani. Conversely, since he assumed office last May, president Buhari has yet to articulate a workable public policy framework on how best to effectively combat the rise in armed Fulani attacks/insurgency. It is then correct to affirm that at the macro level there is total absence of a coherent public policy to deal decisively with the grave phenomenon of armed Fulani terrorism. There seems to be a deliberate dereliction of duty by virtually the entire top commanders of the security forces and police which has created the motivation f...

BY NDI KATO Introduction I wish to begin this paper by stating that the Nigerian border is POROUS and Nigerians are paying for this with human lives. Speaking to a delegation from the Security Council of the United Nations On the 5th of March 2017, the theatre Commander Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Lucky Irabor stated that the greatest challenge of Nigerian troops is the porosity of borders between the neighbouring countries of Niger, Chad and Cameroon and in Lake Chad region. (Vanguard Newspaper, 2017) For decades, Nigerian borders have been open to developmentally static transhumance practices traversing several countries within the West African Region in search of pasture for livestock. According to the oxford dictionary, “transhumance is the action or practice o

Southern Kaduna is not Kaduna South Senatorial Zone but 11 LGAs where God located diverse ethnic groups South of the Southernmost Hausa City call Zaria. Majority of Southern Kaduna people are Christians. The Fulanis have tried to no avail to convert these ethnic groups to Islam but couldn't even with the establishment of an Emirate call Jama'a Emirate in Kafanchan to ensure tribe around that area are converted to Islam. The 2006 censors gave Kaduna State a Population of 6m, the 3rd after Kano and Lagos. When you add and sum up the population of the 11 LGA that made up Southern Kaduna you will get a Population of about 3m people. Southern Kaduna People are the most educated people in the entire Northwest. Kaduna State is the 4th educationally advantage state in the North after Kwar...
