The Nigerian Army says it has deployed troops to halt reported violence in some local government areas in Rivers.

Col. Aminu Iliyasu, Spokesman for Nigerian Army 6 Division, Port Harcourt, confirmed the deployment to the News Agency of (NAN) in Port Harcourt on Saturday.

Two persons were feared dead at Ogu in Ogu-Bolo Local Government Area while shootings were heard in Abonema town, Akuku Toru Local Government Area of the state.

Iliyasu said: “We are hearing that there are some skirmishes but we have not yet fully confirmed the situation.

“However, in order not to escalate the situation, our team has already been moved to the area to make sure that everything within the area is calm.

“We also did this to ensure that people go about and cast their votes without any form of molestation,” he said.

Iliyasu said the role of the army in the election was secondary and was only supporting the police and other security agencies.

He said the army would only act on the invitation of the police.

“So, if there is any emergency that would warrant our involvement, the police or any security agencies will alert the closest army team to calm fraying nerves,” he said.

Nigerians warned to stop drinking garri 20200119 022851

The Director of Public Health, Enugu State, Dr Boniface Okolo, has cautioned Nigerians against the consumption of cassava flakes, otherwise known as garri to avoid contacting Lassa fever.

Okolo, who gave the warning in an interview with News Agency of (NAN), on Saturday in Enugu, said the rats that caused the disease were mostly in contact with Nigerian most popular staple food ‘garri,’ a cassava product.

He added that it was necessary to discourage consumption of soaked garri since it did not require boiled water.

Okolo noted that boiled water could go a long way to kill bacteria caused by pest or rodents in garri.

“It is better that the cassava flakes called garri is used for ‘eba’, because of the use of hot water.

“We in the state health ministry are waging total war against rodents through sensitisation, that is what we are doing to ensure we do not have victim of Lassa fever in the state.

“We are also sensitising the public to ensure that their fruits and raw vegetables are properly washed if they must be consumed them raw and cook to the appropriate temperature.

“The best practices for food storage should be encouraged to prevent epidemic.

”We should always make sure that we use air-tight clean plastic containers to preserve our foodstuff to avoid lassa fever and other diseases,” he said.

Amotekun: Fani-Kayode explodes as Miyetti Allah tells Buhari to arrest Yoruba leaders immediately

Amotekun: Fani-Kayode explodes as Miyetti Allah tells Buhari to arrest Yoruba leaders immediately Femi Fani Kayode

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has dared the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to arrest the Yoruba leaders promoting the establishment of the new security outfit, Amotekun in the South West.

Fani-Kayode said this while reacting to the call made by the National President General of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo to arrest the Yoruba leaders endorsing Amotekun.

DAILY POST had reported that Bodejo said FG should not just stop at banning the outfit but should arrestthose involved in making decisions for its creation with immediate effect.

He said: “If you say you set up Amotekun to protect your region, what about the Northern , what about the Southeast and the South-South and other places that don’t have that kind of thing. is one; everything is one, unless they want to divide the country.

“I know some of their leaders have good hearts, but others have evil hearts, and those are the ones coming up with this agenda that the Fulani can’t do this and the Fulani can’t do that; all these things are happening because of Fulani; they are just against the Fulani.

“I support 100 percent the federal government banning it; and the leaders should be arrested. It is a deliberate plot against the Fulani.”

Reacting to the development, Fani-Kayode in a series of tweets on his official Twitter page, on Saturday, said the Youruba leaders were ready to sacrifice all for the freedom of thier loved ones, children and for the future generations of their people.

He wrote: “Arrest Yoruba leaders who support Amotekun”- Miyetti Allah.

“Go ahead, arrest us and ignite a fire. Do your worst and make heroes and martyrs out of us. We are ready to sacrifice ALL for the freedom of our loved ones & children & for the future generations of our people.

“The struggle for secession in 1967, the Nzeogwu coup of Jan. 15th 1966 and the Orkar coup of April 22 1990, which all aimed at breaking the Islamic North’s political stranglehold coupled with the centrifugal ethnic nationalism of today, have all been abundantly vindicated.

“There is no realistic prospect of working, in equal partnership, with the Islamic North towards any shared enlightened vision of the future. It is time for us to go our separate ways.

“In as much as the control of one’s own destiny is the pre-condition for progress, a conflict with the Islamic North is inevitable if the South truly desires to successfully reform itself.”

Recall that Governors in the South West region had established and inaugurated the security outfit to curb the menace of herdsmen attacks in their region.

However, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami had said the security outfit is illegal.
