Ali spoke at a news conference organized by the ministry of on Thursday.

He said: “A chemical must have been added to sustain its freshness and that chemical is harmful.

“Also, it has been re-bagged with a new date given as the production and expiry dates, and that is what we consume here which causes diseases.

“So, I appeal to Nigerians to please patronize our own rice, it is available, more nutritious and if you do that you will assist customs by making sure these people (smugglers) are put out of .

“We always ask for assistance from Nigerians to apprehend these smugglers, but up till now, there is no private citizen that has walked up to us to give us information, the only people giving us information are the rice millers.”

Amotekun: Our own security operation will be everywhere, Nigeria’s breakup won’t affect us – Miyetti Allah 20200222 145014 1

Miyetti Allah Kautel Hore socio-cultural organisation, has said that it may be pushed to set up its own security operation in the country, adding that if that happens, no one can control it.

Speaking through its National President, Abdullahi Bodejo , in an interview with the Sun, the organization also declared that ’s breakup won’t affect the Fulani in any way.

Bodejo said he is so afraid the way regions are coming up with illegal security outfits, “One group calls its own, Amotekun; another group calls its own Shege ka fasa”, declaring that he does not support anything illegal.

The Fulani leader pointed out that it would be a disaster for the country if all the groups are allowed to form their own security.

He explained that the Fulani are in every corner, “if the Fulani should set up its own, how many countries will that be; how many countries do they not have brothers- Our brothers are in Cameroun, Niger, Chad, Mali etc. Some migrated to Ghana to rear their cows and other parts of the world.”

He said his organization is looking at the response of the government and security agencies to the formation of these ”illegal security outfits, “because if it comes to our side. I don’t think it is something that anybody can control.”

“If we are pushed to set up our own security outfit, nobody can control it because nobody knows how many Fulani in Nigeria; we are more than every tribe in this country, we are in every corner,” Bodejo warned.

“If anything happens to this country whether break up, nothing can affect the Fulani. Nothing can affect the Fulani,” he added.

He said, however, that Fulani are blessed people who are managing themselves, but are hated by Nigerians “who do not want to take their eyes off them.”

Abacha loot: Malami reacts as US opposes Buhari govt’s ‘plan’ to hand Atiku $100m 20200222 143837 1

’s Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has dismissed United States’ reported opposition to alleged plan by the President Muhammadu Buhari government to hand $100million to Kebbi Governor, Atiku Bagudu, from recovered Sani Abacha loot

Malami, through Umar Jibrilu Gwandu, his Special Assistant on Public Relations, called the news widely published by the Nigerian media as false.

“The story regarding paying a Governor certain amount of the repartraited Abacha loot is unfounded and baseless.

“It is only a fiction and figment of imagination of mischief makers who are bent on destroying the good efforts of the Federal Government.

“The should be disregarded by any sensible and well-meaning persons”, Gwandu said in a statement Friday night.
Bloomberg had reported that there was a commitment by Nigeria to transfer funds to Bagudu after the repatriation of over $308million.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) stated that Bagudu was part of Abacha network that, “embezzled, misappropriated and extorted billions from the government of Nigeria.”

The U.S. is also seeking to seize some assets linked to the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governors Forum.

The world power, following a Nigerian government request in 2012, initiated a forfeiture action, including investment portfolios held in London in trust for the Kebbi helmsman.

In about two decades, Nigeria has been able to recover more than $2billion out of the $5billion Transparency International estimated Abacha stole.
