“Rulings and orders that were secured against the Federal Government do not have any bearing against the Kaduna State Government which was not a party to those proceedings and against whom no orders were made.

“Any issues regarding compliance or non-compliance with a court order by the DSS or the Federal Government cannot be used to vitiate the judicial proceedings the Kaduna State Government has commenced against the El-Zakzakys.’’

The statement recalls that an eight-count charge was filed against some accused persons on April 19, 2018, including El Zakzaky and his wife, “after months of painstaking investigation, which covered a period of about three decades.”

24 soldiers killed in attack on Army camp 20200127 054119

The death toll in Sunday’s attack on Sokolo Army camp in central Mali has risen to 24.

The operation has been claimed by Al-Qaeda affiliate Nusrat al- (JNIM), a group active in the Maghreb and West Africa regions.

The attackers reportedly took the servicemen by surprise.

Militants stormed the base on motorbikes then opened fire on the soldiers.

Videos released by pro-jihadist outlets shows a cache of small arms, several pickup trucks and other equipment purportedly seized by the attackers.

The Malian military have confirmed the loss of equipment but did not provide any detail on the scale of losses.

The incident came two weeks after a major assault on an army base in Niger.

That attack came less than a month after another attack on an outpost that killed 71 soldiers, left over 100 soldiers wounded.

Nigerien President, Mahamadou Issoufou sacked Ahmed Mohamed, head of the country’s Army after the attack.

Salifou Modi, a major general, who was immediately appointed, said Niger would launch a new military offensive against militants.

Yahoo: Why we raid Clubs – EFCC efcc3 1024x576

Mr Ibrahim Magu, the acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has reacted to backlash by Nigerians, condemning the raid at Club 360 in Ibadan Oyo State.

The Commission had come under attack over the arrest of 89 suspected internet fraudsters at the Club 360.

We reported that EFCC Ibadan zonal office arrested 89 suspected internet fraudsters at the Club 360 located on Akala Expressway, Oluyole Extension in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital last weekend.

This action led to a backlash from Nigerians on social media.

However, reacting on Wednesday, Magu said the commission raids clubs because that’s where internet fraudsters gather and spend the money gotten from their victims.

“If it is nightclubs, these are the places the yahoo boys gather and spend the money. There is nothing wrong in raiding the yahoo boys at nightclubs,” he said.

The EFCC boss, who was in Ibadan to inspect the new recruits of the commission at the state zonal office on Wednesday added that “It is not about nightclub, raiding of nightclub is left to the police, we don’t have much power, and we will go there when we are sure it is the fraudsters.

“We are not raiding nightclub, we are going after the yahoo yahoo boys and we always do that when we have a credible intelligence.

“What we will do is that we have to collaborate to rehabilitate them into the society. These are small boys who are intelligent, they can be useful.

“There are a lot of fraudsters who have made millions, we can find a way to bring them back so they can be better citizens tomorrow.”
