Buhari Speaks On Ethnic Violence.

President Muhammadu Buhari last night promised to protect all ethnic and religious groups in the country.


He told governors and traditional rulers to prevent primordial sentiments from boiling over.


The President warned that he would not allow any ethnic or religious group to stoke up hatred and violence against others.


He spoke amid rising ethnic tension and violence in many parts of the country as a result of the activities of some criminal herdsmen.


Many people have been killed and properties destroyed in different parts of the country.


The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) has outlawed open grazing by herders and governors have been asked to take steps to end the incessant herders-farmers conflicts.


Gunmen Attacks Church, Kills 1 Police Officer.

Unknown gunmen on Sunday killed a police officer in a church in Ughelli, Delta.


Police spokesperson, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, confirmed the development to reporters on Sunday in Warri.


“Yes, he (police officer) followed his principal (not named) to the church,” the spokesperson said.


A witness said that the gunmen allegedly stormed a Pentecostal church located in Oviri-Ogor Road, Ughelli in the Ughelli North Local Government Area of the state, during worship service on Sunday and shot the victim thrice.


The deceased, a police inspector, was said to have been serving at PMF 31, Ogwashi-Uku and was on escort duty at the time of the incident.


Amotekun Arrests 4 Over Killings In Ondo.

Operatives of the Ondo State Security Network, codenamed Amotekun Corps, have arrested four suspects over the Thursday’s killing of two officers of the outfit and burning of its operational vehicle and motorcycles at Ago Sanusi in Owo Local Government Area of the state.


The Commander of the Corps in the state, Adetunji Adeleye, who disclosed this at a press conference in Akure, said the four suspects were also arrested in connection with the killing of a farmer and a member of the vigilante group in the village.


A farmer and a member of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria were murdered by suspected herdsmen on Thursday, while the operational vehicle and motorcycles belonging to Amotekun were set ablaze.


Adeleye, who did not reveal the identities of the suspects due to ongoing investigations, said the suspects were arrested inside a forest reserve in the state.


Iyiola Omisore To Join APC Today.

Information available to DAILY POST indicates that a former Deputy Governor of Osun State and Social Democratic Party (SDP) governorship candidate in the 2018 Osun gubernatorial election, Senator Iyiola Omisore, will today decamp to the All Progressives Congress (APC).


The decision to decamp to the APC was not known as at press time but facts on the table reveal that it is a strategic move in the political permutations ahead of the 2022 gubernatorial election in Osun State.


Recall that Senator Omisore was also the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate in the 2014 gubernatorial election in the State.


In 2014, he was defeated by the candidate of the APC, Rauf Aregbesola and in 2018 he came a distant third behind Senator Ademola Adeleke of the PDP and the eventual winner, Adegboyega Oyetola of the APC.


In a chat with Mr. Yemi Lawal, the Osun State Commissioner for Youths and Sports, he advised DAILY POST to be in Ile-Ife, the political stronghold of Omisore if it wants to find out if the information was true or false.


What do you say as a Nigerian on what the president said?

Is it a speech too late or just a good and perfect timing from the president to give such speech?
