Today's Headlines: ESN Members Invade Rivers State To Evict Herdsmen, CJN Advises Nigerian Judges

1) ESN Members Invades Rivers State To Evict Herdsmen.

Eastern Security Network operatives have recently mobilized into the forests of Rivers State's Eleme Local Government Area in order to evict Fulani herdsmen who have allegedly taken over people's farms.

Despite threats from the state governor, Nyesom Wike, against the ESN and the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, "SaharaReporters" learned that the operatives moved into the forests to prevent the herdsmen from forming settlements in the region.

Agbonchia community in the Eleme LGA has been tense after Fulani herdsmen invaded the region on Saturday, damaging farmlands and assaulting people.

"SaharaReporters" announced on Saturday that the invasion began last Monday, with residents gradually fleeing the area due to fear of killer herdsmen, who allegedly abused some women in the village.

Some residents told "SaharaReporters" that on Friday, a large peaceful protest was held to draw the attention of the state and federal governments to the city, which is currently under siege by herdsmen. It's worth noting that on Saturday, Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra and the founder of ESN, announced that he had ordered ESN operatives to wage war against the Fulani herdsmen.

2) "Donald Trump to launch own social media platform" – adviser.

Former US President Donald Trump will return to social media in two or three months with "his own website," according to one of his senior advisors.

Following the deadly riot at the United States Capitol in January, Mr. Trump was barred from Twitter and suspended indefinitely from Facebook. Mr. Trump's account will be permanently banned from Twitter, citing the possibility that he will use the forum to provoke more abuse.

Mr. Trump was later impeached for allegedly inciting the assault, but was acquitted after only seven Republican senators voted to prosecute him.

Mr. Trump's senior advisor, Jason Miller, said on Sunday on "Fox News" that the president will "return to social media in about two or three months with his own website."

3) NSCDC arrests two suspects for "Vandalising" rail tracks.

Two suspects were recently arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Command in Plateau state for allegedly vandalizing rail tracks.

On Monday in Jos, the NSCDC Commandant in the county, Mr Stephen Jiyason, paraded the suspects in front of the media.

According to him, the suspects committed the crime in Wassa, Kaduna State's Sanga Local Government Area. Musa Ahmed, one of the suspects, was arrested with rail slippers by officials from the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) who were on routine patrol on the Jos-Abuja route, according to him. When a squad of craft detectives from the command's anti-vandal unit visited Wassa, the second perpetrator, Michael Obi, was arrested in the act, according to Jiyason.

4) CJN Advises Nigerian Judges.

Justice Tanko Muhammad, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, has issued a warning to judges across the country not to do something that would tarnish their good name or jeopardize their prestige.

He stated that judicial officers must always be aware of their mistakes, claiming that this is the only way to effectively prevent them in the future. The Chief Justice of Nigeria, speaking at the opening ceremony of the National Judicial Institute's 2021 Refresher Course for Judges and Kadis, emphasized that the conduct of Nigerian judges is scrutinized both at home and abroad.
