[20 April, 2021]

You’re undermining our security’ — FG tackles UK on plan to grant IPOB members asylum

The federal government says the plan of the UK to grant asylum to “persecuted” members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) undermines Nigeria’s security.

TheCable had published an exclusive report that the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) had released new guidelines on how to treat asylum applications by members of Biafran secessionist groups.

In the guidelines, asylum is to be granted to “persecuted” members of the proscribed IPOB and the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB).

Senate to investigate CCT Chairman, Umar, over alleged assault on security guard

Recall that the CCT Chairman, Danladi Umar was criticised weeks ago for allegedly assaulting a security guard in a viral video, an accusation he has vehemently denied.

Following a public backlash against Umar, Sagwak petitioned the Senate through Sen. Istifanus Gyang (Plateau North).

Gyang at the plenary said the petitioner was seeking justice, given the assault on him by the Tribunal Judge, while carrying out his duty.
