Today's Headlines: Gunmen Strikes In Anambra, Borno Residents Flee From Boko Haram Attacks.


1) Gunmen Strikes In Anambra.

A man, Ken Ekwesianya, his wife and daughter have been reportedly killed by gunmen in Azia, in the Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State.


They were said to be killed inside a church around 7 pm on Thursday.

Details of the incident were still sketchy as of the time of filing the report.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed confirmed the incident.


He said an investigation had commenced.


2) Borno Residents Flee From Boko Haram Attacks.

As a result of incessant terrorist attacks on some communities in Borno State, residents of four local governments in the state are fleeing into Yobe communities, the police have revealed.


The local governments, according to Yobe State Police Command, are Gubio, Magumeri, Kaga and Konduga.

A statement on Thursday by the Police Public Relations Officer, Yobe State Police Command, Dungus Abdulkarim, said large movement of migrants from Gubio, Magumeri, Kaga and Konduga Local Government Areas of Borno State into Yobe State have been observed.


3) Presidency Speaks On Obasanjo.

Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, has narrated how former President Olusegun Obasanjo humiliated a former chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Yakubu Pam.

In his article published on Thursday, titled ‘The priest and the president’, Adesina claimed Obasanjo had called Pam an idiot in 2004 when the former president visited Plateau to mediate in the religious crisis rocking the state.


The crisis had claimed several lives and led to the destruction of properties, while a state of emergency was declared in the north-central state.


4) APC Will Lose The Presidential Election Except …

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Olusola Adeyeye has warned that the party will lose the 2023 presidential election except it learns from the mistake made by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the 2015 elections.

Adeyeye submitted that the PDP lost the 2015 presidential election because some people within the party attempted to go against the zoning arrangement in place which made many politicians dump the party and support the APC and Buhari.


He argued that as it stands, it is the turn of the south to produce Nigeria’s next leader after President Muhammadu Buhari, and if the APC doesn’t respect the zoning agreement, it may spell doom for the party’s fortune in the 2023 presidential polls.


5) Banks To Shutdown Crypto Accounts.

The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, has directed Deposit Money Banks (DMBs), Other Financial Institutions (OFIs) and Non-Bank Financial Institutions (NBFIs) local financial institutions against having any transactions in crypto or facilitating payments for crypto exchanges.


The apex bank disclosed this today in a letter to all DMBs, OFIs and NBFIs. The regulator noted that “breaches of this directive will attract severe regulatory sanctions.”


The circular signed by Director of Banking Supervision, Bello Hassan, stated:” The CBN circular of January 12, 2017 ref


FPRIDIRGENT R/06/010 which DMBs, NBFIs and OFIs and members of the public on the risks associated with transactions in crypto currency refers.
