Hausa Leader Speaks

A leader in the Hausa community in Ibadan, Usman Garuba, on Monday said many Hausa residents in the troubled Shasha area of Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, have left their businesses and fled to the North.

Garuba, who is the prime minister of Hausa people in Oyo State, told SaharaReporters that many of the victims of the Shasha violence could not withstand the pressure again.

He said he wept when he saw the way people were killed and the hunger facing little children.


Bauchi Government Speaks

Bala Mohammed, governor of Bauchi, says his recent comment on armed herders is not to justify criminality.

On Thursday, Mohammed said herders carry AK-47 rifles because they need to protect themselves.

The comment drew criticism from the public with some Nigerians accusing the governor of supporting criminality.

But in a statement on Sunday, Mukhtar Gidado, the governor’s spokesman, said his principal’s comment was taken out of context.


Four Killed In Ogun

Four persons were reportedly killed by suspected killer herdsmen on Sunday evening at Agbon-Ojodu, Yewa North Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The suspected herdsmen were said to have attacked Ebute Igbooro, killing four persons and setting properties ablaze on their trail.

It was gathered that the latest attack on Sunday came a few hours after a delegation of the Ogun State Government left the area.


Jonathan Speaks On Alleged Defection To APC

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has refuted reports of his defection to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Jonathan said he is still a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Speaking at the supreme court victory/ thanksgiving service of the Bayelsa State governor, the former president described PDP “as a friend that carries people along.”


Should Goodluck Jonathan join APC?
