Fears As Bakassi Boys Return To South East

The Vigilante group known as Bakassi Boys has returned to the South East years after the group was disbanded.

The dreaded vigilante group popularly known as ‘Bakassi boys’ who had years back engaged in killing those suspected to be evil, Wicked and Unreasonable in Anambra state has resurfaced in the state.

Our correspondence gathered that the Vigilante group during the tenure of Dr. Chinwoke Mbadinuju engaged in jungle justice as non of their victims was allowed to be tried in the court of Law.

The group came back to crush cultists and other criminals who are now ravaging the peace of the state.

As told through Our Correspondence, over ten people have been reportedly killed by the Bakassi boys since weekend.

A source told this meduim that a video of the arrival of the dreaded vigilante group was  watced in Awka, the state capital at the weekend.

A resident petrol attendant in Awka told Our Correspondence the story of how her customer, “a Keke driver was shot by the Bakassi Boys and the bullet couldn’t penetrate his skin after which he was macheted and burnt alive”.

Our Reporters also gathered that the Bakassi Boys were invited by the indigenes of Awka to help them checkmate the excessess of cultists and other criminal activities that have eaten deep into the fabric of the community.

A source said that Secret cult activities have eaten deep into the hearts of many youths in Anambra state and the entire country.

According to him, Awka indigenes earlier last year brought an idol that would help them to curtail the evil of cult boys in the area which he said did not work.

Reacting to the development, the police spokesman Ikenga Tochukwu said he had no information about the activities of Bakassi Boys, but a senior official confirmed that they arrived on Saturday.

“That’s the only thing I can tell you for now, let’s see how things work out in days and weeks to come,” he said.

“If they engage in jungle justice, nobody will talk, especially the lawyers and human rights groups, but when police engage in such, the whole world will tumble and that’s what the state deserves at this moment, ” the source said.

U

Nasarawa civil servants have gone on strike indefinitely due to Governor Abdullahi Sule’s unwillingness to enforce the new N30,000 minimum salary.

Mr Sule used the no-work-no-pay approach to keep the workforce in line.

Workers began an indefinite strike on Tuesday to fight for the full implementation of the N30,000 national minimum wage and employee promotion, among other demands.

Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, a former Chief Security Officer to the late Head of State, Gen Sani Abacha has recounted how the former boss died.

Al-Mustapha said Abacha did not die after eating an apple from his concubines, as widely speculated.

Speaking on how his late boss died, the former CSO said Abacha died after a brief illness.

According to ThisDay, Al-Mustapha said the late military ruler’s health suddenly collapsed on June 7, 1998, from the Abuja International Airport, after one of the security personnel, who accompanied President Yasser Arafat of Palestine shook hands with him.

Al-Mustapha said: “Shortly after the handshake, I noticed the change in the countenance of the late Commander-in-Chief, and I immediately informed the Aide-de-Camp, Lt. Col. Abdallah, who advised that we keep a close watch on him.

“Later in the evening of June 8, 1998, around 6 p.m., his doctor came around and administered an injection to stabilise him. He was advised to have a short rest.

“At about 5 a.m., the security guards ran to my quarters to inform me that Abacha was very unstable.”

Al-Mustapha disclosed that he thought the officers who came to his house was an attempted coup plot, so he had to divert their attention on his movement to Abacha’s residence.

He added: “When I got to the bedside of the Head of State, he was already gasping. Ordinarily, I could not just touch him. It was not allowed in our job. But under the situation, I knelt close to him and shouted: ‘General Sani Abacha, Sir, please grant me permission to touch and carry you.

“I again knocked at the stool beside the bed and shouted in the same manner, yet he did not respond. I then realised that there was a danger. I immediately called the Head of State’s personal physician, Dr. Wali, who arrived in the place in eight minutes from his house. He immediately gave Abacha two doses of injection, one at the heart and another close to his neck. This did not work apparently, as the Head of State had turned very cold.

“He then told me that the Head of State was dead and that nothing could be done after all.”

Soldiers of 72 Special Force Brigade, Nigeria Army, Makurdi on Monday night intercepted 73 young men from Nasarawa State on their way to Imo State.

The able-bodied young men who were loaded in five trucks were intercepted at Agan Toll Gate, Makurdi by the military working on a security report.

Also seen with the young men were 47 Bajaj motorcycles. The trucks were said to be conveying some minerals from Plateau State to a Port Harcourt based company.

Benue State Deputy Governor, Benson Abounu, who visited the barracks on Tuesday commended the Special Forces for their diligence and professional conduct.

The deputy governor expressed joy that despite the attempts to evade arrest, the soldiers were able to apprehend the trucks and arrest the men.

Abounu said that the arrest was contrary to speculations in town about the confiscation of a truck loaded with arms and men who were trying to attack the town, saying, “no arms were found after a thorough search conducted by the soldiers.”

He expressed surprise at how such a large number of young men from the same state could be found together going to a place like Imo State, which is known to be experiencing serious security challenges at the moment.

The deputy governor charged the security men to carry out detailed profiling of the passengers for further action as the answers coming from them do not add up.

The Commander of 72 Special Forces Brigade, Lt. Col. AD Alhassan said that his men acted based on security report.

He said that as soon as they got the report that some trucks were heading to Makurdi they moved to intercept the trucks immediately.

Lt..Col. Alhassan said they spent a couple of hours waiting for them before they finally arrived at night.

He said that the soldiers had conducted a thorough search on them with all goods on the trucks offloaded and their motorcycles dismantled for proper search but said no arms were found.

One of the young men, who said his name is Ayugwa, said they were all going to Imo State to do okada business, adding that they were aware of the serious security challenges there but decided to go because their brothers there told them that everything had calmed down.
