Uche Secondus, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says Nigeria might go into extinction if the July governorship election in Ekiti state is rigged.

Speaking at the flag-off of PDP’s local government election campaign in Rivers state, the opposition leader said his party would resist any attempt to thwart the will of the people.

He alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) rigged the Kaduna local government election, where his party won four LGAs, while APC swept 14.

“The forthcoming Ekiti state election is going to be a litmus test. We warn that if you attempt to rig Ekiti, it will be a recipe for crisis and we don’t know whether there will be Nigeria or not,” he said.

“We are bold to say it because you cannot take the peoples rights, you cannot deny them of their votes and we are saying and we want APC to say the same that it will be ‘one man, one vote’, ‘one woman, one vote’, ‘one youth, one vote’.

“We will never allow an evil individual to destroy this nation or to destroy our state. If you like wait for us, we refuse to be intimidated. We saw all that happened in Kaduna last Saturday. PDP won in all local government areas, but they over-turned the results.”

Secondus said that with the help of Nigerians, PDP is united to take over from the APC in 2019.
He said his party would provide the leadership that will create platforms of the unity for Nigerians.

During a dinner with the southwest caucus of APC at the presidential villa in Abuja earlier in the week, President Muhammadu Buhari urged the members of his party to take the mission to rescue Ekiti from PDP seriously

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Ibrahim Idris, has stated that police officers must first surrender themselves to be searched before they search Nigerians, revealing that this is the “procedure.”
Idris said this yesterday during an interactive session with Nigerians on Twitter, through the hashtag #AskThePolice.

“If an officer wants to search you in your house/car, he must first surrender himself for searching. This is the procedure. Ask politely,” he said in response to a question.

When asked if it is legal for police officers to search people’s phones without warrant, the IGP said: “It is not ideal for Officers to search your phones without a complaint. It is not professional.
“Officers have been lectured not to unnecessarily search people’s phones without any case or complaint against the person.”

The Christian Association of Nigeria has warned that there may be religious war in Nigeria should Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi Christian girl still being held by Boko Haram dies in captivity.

The Special Assistant on Media and Communications to CAN President, Adebayo Oladeji, in a statement on Friday warned that Sharibu’s death could spell doom for the country as she was being detained because of her religious inclination.

Oladeji said, “Recently, CAN called out its members to demand for her release. We have addressed a press conference calling for her release. At every opportunity any church leader has to speak to the public, they demand her release.

“We are doing a lot of things we cannot be disclosing to the public. Our concern includes the silence of the media and the civil society organisations, thinking Leah Sharibu is a CAN affair. How many editorials have been written about her plight?

“CAN will not cease the agitation for the release of all the abductees, including Leah Sharibu.

“Let all and sundry rise up against the failure of the security agencies and ask President Muhammadu Buhari to wake up from his slumber before the terrorists and herdsmen finish the country.

“Leah Sharibu must not die. Her death, God forbids, can spell doom for Nigeria. It can give an open invitation to religious war because Leah is being detained purely because of her religion.”

Similarly, the Pentecostal Christian Association, which is the umbrella body of pentecostal, evangelical and charismatic ministries, churches and associations, described the country’s peace as hinged on Sharibu’s safety.

The board’s National Publicity Secretary, Bishop Emmah Isong, said, “We can tell you that the peace of this country hangs on the Federal Government’s promise to secure the release of Leah Sharibu.

“She has become an ambassador of Christianity to the Republic of Boko Haram and we are demanding that she returns home safely to her parents.

“All Nigerian youths are waiting to see what the Federal Government will do. Our constitution, which requires the government to be a protector of lives and property, will be called to question if Leah is not released.

” We do hope that with our prayers and the concern of all Nigerians, including Christians and Muslims, Leah would be released very soon by the grace of God.”

Sharibu was among the 111 girls abducted by Boko Haram on February 19 in Dapchi, Yobe State.

The insurgents had since returned 105 of the girls, but refused to release Leah on the ground that she refused to renounce her Christian faith.

DAILY POST recalls that the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, had on Wednesday said efforts were on to ensure the release of Sharibu, noting that she would not be abandoned by the Federal Government.

Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, says the All Progressive Congress (APC), will be disgraced during the July 14 governorship election in the state.

In a statement on Thursday, Fayose alleged that the APC is planning to rig the election.

He said he had uncovered a plot to recruit APC members from neighbouring states and “arm them with identity cards” of students of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE), then, use them as INEC presiding and returning officers to “perfect the rigging”.

The governor alleged that Kayode Soremekun, vice chancellor of FUOYE, is a card carrying member of APC and a close ally of Kayode Fayemi, the APC candidate.

He alleged that over 2000 supposed FUOYE students have been registered; with a ”curious condition” that they should provide bank account details of their close relations, ”apparently to avoid tracing any payment into their own accounts”.

He recalled that the president had ”categorically” said that Ekiti state must be taken by APC at all cost.

”Let me tell the president and his men that they will be disgraced here in Ekiti because the power of the people is greater than the power of those in power,” Fayose said.

”The question is, with over 9000 Youth Corps members in Ekiti state, what is the need for FUOYE students in an election that is holding in less than 2,200 polling units?”

”INEC must come clean on this. The electoral umpire must tell the public the rationale behind the plot to jettison Youth Corps members for supposed FUOYE students,” he said.

”We hereby call on all men of good conscience to stand up and be coubted in the fight against dictatorship, election rigging and plot to subvert democracy in Nigeria.

”2019 general elections is close by and Ekiti as well as Osun elections are prelude to what to expect in 2019.

”The international community must prevail on INEC and the Buhari administration to allow free, fair and credible election in Ekiti state.”

A reliable source has revealed how three Hausa Men were caught red handed in an attempt to plant some explosive devices inside the church premises of St Mary's Church Ariaria Aba, in Abia state.

According to an eyewitness, the three Hausa men are suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, however, they have been handed over to the police, stationed at Ariaria international market.

The names of these men were not made known, since the police men interrupted the questioning sections of the culprits by the Youths who caught them in the act.

The incident took place at exactly 7 pm today the 19th day of May 2018. This is an evidence to prove that the Hausa Fulani monsters have arrived our peaceful home to cause chaos.

Ugochinyere Onyechere reporting For Umuchiukwu Writers

A Liberty Television journalist, Aminu Nurudeen, who is believed to have posted the viral video showing the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, struggling to read a speech at a public event in Kano, has gone into hiding.

Punch reports that the Kano State Police Command invited the reporter to its office immediately the video went viral.

The video, shows the IG struggling to read his speech at the inauguration of the Police Technical Intelligence Unit in Kano, Kano State on Monday.

Nurudeen’s whereabouts had been unknown since the Kano State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Musa Magaji Majiya, invited him on Thursday.

Authorities are upset with the journalist because he had allegedly disobeyed a directive by the Kano State Police Command to journalists present at the event not to report the IG’s blunder or make the video public.

The viral video showed the IG delivering an incoherent speech, which had since exposed him to public ridicule.

In a part of the transcription of the footage, Idris said, “I mean, transmission, I mean effort, that the transmission cooperation to transmission, I mean transmission to have effect, ehm, apprehend, I mean, apprehensive towards the recommendation, recommended formation effective and effect, I mean, apprehensive at the transmission of…and transmission and transmission for the effective in the police command.”

Voice of Liberty had posted the video on Wednesday. It was gathered on Friday that the IG was embarrassed by the trending video and had ordered an investigation into its release.

In a chat with Punch, a source said, “He (the IGP) has however ordered an investigation into the leakage of the video but we are watching to see how he intends to deal with the individuals behind the viral video without further embarrassing himself and the force”.

Also, detectives are allegedly using the police technical platform to track the original source of the video on social media.

Bloggers that posted the video might be interrogated by the police for allegedly, “peddling a doctored video meant to cast the IG in bad light and embarrass the police leadership.”

Idris, in an interactive media chat on the police Twitter handle, Nigerian Police @PoliceNG #Askthepolice, had also told Nigerians that the video was doctored.

“Yes, it was doctored,” he said in response to a question from a Twitter user.

The presidency has also reacted to the video.
