Today's Headlines: Gunmen Strikes In Imo, Kills 2 Police Officers, Joe Biden Makes Big Promises.


1) Gunmen Strikes In Imo, Kills 2 Police Officers.

Gunmen on Friday night attacked Obowo Divisional Police Headquarters, located at Umulowe autonomous community area of Imo State and killed two police officers who were on duty.


The hoodlums also injured three other cops who resisted them from gaining access into the headquarters.


2) Gunmen Strikes In Rivers State.

No fewer than five persons have been reportedly killed as unidentified gunmen invaded Zor-Sogho Community, in Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State.


It was gathered that the unidentified killers had stormed the community with heavy gun fire and gunned down the reported five victims.


A source in the area who preferred anonymity disclosed that the bandits carried out the operation around 10pm Thursday.


The source hinted that the development unsettled the community, adding that many residents out of fear have fled the area.


However, Ogoni Development Initiative, OYDI, has condemned the killings of the victims in the community, describing it as barbaric.


The National Coordinator of OYDI, Imeabe Saviour Oscar, regretted that some youths in Ogoni were still interested in cultism, hinting that cultists in the area were behind the act.


3) Joe Biden Makes Big Promises To Africans.

US President Joe Biden promised to rebuild his country’s partnership with the African Union (AU) moments after he delivered his first foreign policy speech since taking office.


His predecessor, Donald Trump, sparked a row in 2018 over his alleged use of the word “shithole” to describe African nations.


Mr Trump later denied that he is racist.

On Friday the White House tweeted a video of President Biden’s remarks to the continental body ahead of its 34th summit.


Attract Development To Us, Not Crisis — Says Group To Umahi.

The people of Amagu community, Ishiagu in Ivo Local government Area of Ebonyi State has urged Governor David Umahi, to call his aides from their area to order over flagrant abuse of court orders.


According to them, the political appointees from the area have failed to attract development like other communities in the state instead they are busy attracting crisis.


Some community leaders made the appeal on behalf of the community while granting an interview with Nigeria Tribune correspondent on Friday,


The Community leaders lamented the development whereby few aides of the governor in the area appropriated the community land for themselves, leveraging on purported executive orders issued by Governor Umahi in total disregard to Court rulings prohibiting them from the land.


The land in contention is a Community land which onus rests on all stakeholders to decide what use it should be put into.
