Today's Headlines: FFK Speaks Again, Bandits Set Houses Ablaze, 5 Soldiers Killed And Others.


Bandits Set Houses Ablaze

There was palpable tension in Ogila-ama community in Opuoama Kingdom in the Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State as some gunmen invaded the area in the early hours of Friday.

The incident, which occurred around 5am and went on till 7am, saw the yet-to-be identified gunmen setting some buildings in the community ablaze. 


We Have Recaptured North-East From Terrorists - Military

The Nigerian Military has boasted that no single territory in the North East remains in the control of Boko Haram terrorists.

This was disclosed on Friday by the Coordinator Defence Media Operations, Major-General John Enenche who noted that all territories previously occupied by the insurgents have now been reclaimed by the military.

Speaking on Channel Television’s Politics Today, Enenche said the insurgents have been displaced and seriously weakened as a result of continuous onslaughts against them by the military.


5 Soldiers Killed

Five soldiers, including an officer from the 117 Battalion, 28 Task Force Brigade, have been killed while 15 others were injured when they ran into landmines planted by Boko Haram insurgents during an operation in a remote village in the southern part of Borno State on Thursday, sources said.

It was learnt that the incident happened near Kwada Kwamtah Yahi village in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno where their vehicle ran over a massive bomb that exploded, killing one army officer and four others.


Zulum Speaks

The Governor of Borno State, Prof Babagana Zulum, said on Friday that for the sake of fairness, power should return to the south in 2023. He faulted the suspicion that any part of the country could not be trusted with power, perhaps for the fear of secession.

He stressed that there was a need for fairness in the country, adding that marginalisation had become the loudest concern from the citizenry.


FFK Speaks Again

A former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has revealed why pigeons released by President Muhammadu Buhari during the Armed Forces Remembrance Day ceremony on Friday refused to fly.

Reacting to the incident via his Twitter handle on Friday, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Fani-Kayode, said the pigeons refused to fly because President Buhari’s adminsitration has failed.
