The Bayelsa State Police Command has arrested two students of the state-owned Niger Delta University (NDU) for unlawful possession of a revolver pistol and cultism.

A statement on Wednesday by the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Asinim Butswat, identified the two NDU undergraduates as Joshua Daniel and Kevin Are.

While Daniel is a 300-level student of the Department of Economics, Are is a 200-level student of the Mechanical Engineering Department.

Butswat said the suspects were picked up with their gun on Tuesday at the jetty in the university town of Amassoma, Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the state.


Buhari Speaks

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Wednesday, promised that Nigeria will continue to stand by all its neighbours in the fight against terrorism.

According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President made the pledge while reacting to an attack in Niger Republic’s Tillaberi region in which many citizens were killed.


Court Remands Opc Members For Murder

An Iyaganku Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ibadan on Wednesday, ordered that three members of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) be remanded in a correctional centre for alleged arson.

The police charged Awodele Adedigba, 45; Dauda Kazeem, 38, and Hassan Ramon, 33, with three counts of conspiracy, murder and arson.

The Chief Magistrate, Olaide Hamzat, who did not take the plea of the suspects, for want in jurisdiction, ordered that they be remanded in Abolongo Correctional facility, Oyo town.


APC National Secretary Speaks

The All Progressives Congress (APC) says the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government would not spare or condone looters of public funds within and outside government.

The party said this in a statement by Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary of its Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) on Wednesday in Abuja.

Akpanudoedehe was reacting to allegations by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the Buhari’s regime was the most corrupt government in Nigeria.


Christians And Muslims Clash In Kwara

At least three people sustained varying degrees of injury during a clash between Muslims and Christians on Wednesday in Ilorin, Kwara state after the state government reopened 10 schools shut last month over the use of hijab by Muslim female students.

The government had in February ordered the temporary closure of the schools pending the resolution of the controversy in the schools.

Muslim leaders had insisted that students should be allowed to use hijab but their Christian counterparts said such negates the heritage of the missionaries, who built the schools.
