Expatriate Hangs Self In Lagos Office, Police Begin Probe.

Expatriate Hangs Self In Lagos Office, Police Begin Probe

An Indian national, Devendra Singh, has allegedly committed suicide at his private office on Egbeyemi Street, in the Ilupeju area of Lagos State.

Until his death, Singh, 42, was said to be a field worker at the Agro Nigeria Limited, in the Ikeja area of the state.

Airviews News gathered that the victim’s driver had conveyed him to his office last Friday when the incident happened.

Upon entering the premises, our correspondent learnt that Singh got down from the vehicle and proceeded to the office to commence his work for the day.

Things, however, took another turn when Singh stayed in the office beyond the usual closing hour.

His driver was said to have called his phone number several times without any response.

A source, on Sunday, said the driver, who peeped through the window, was shocked at the sight of the lifeless remains of his boss dangling from a rope.

The source said, “The driver called his colleagues around 7.30pm saying he brought his boss to the office in the morning and that his boss was not out and that he had tried calling him and he did not pick his calls. His colleagues then informed their company’s chief security officer.

“A few minutes later, the driver peeped through the window of the office and saw that his boss had hanged himself on the iron hook used in holding a ceiling fan. Some of his colleagues, who rushed down to the place, also confirmed seeing the Indian man’s lifeless body dangling from the rope.

“So, they reported back to their CSO, who advised them to report to the police. It was the police that came to the private office to forcefully open the door and met his corpse in that same position.

“He locked himself inside the office and when the police managed to open the place, they saw the side table he climbed to hang himself and afterwards, he pushed it. Singh didn’t write any suicide note.”

Our correspondent gathered that after the police recovered Singh’s corpse on Friday, April 30, 2022, his remains were deposited in the mortuary at the Mainland Hospital, Yaba, Lagos, for an autopsy.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, said the state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, had ordered an investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding Singh’s death.

He added, “Investigation has begun to ascertain if it is truly suicide or murder/manslaughter packaged as suicide.”

PDP Reinstates Kano State Exco, Approved Onu As Ebonyi State Chairman

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP after an extensive deliberation and in obedience to the Order of Court, has approved the reinstatement of the dissolved Executive Committee members of our Party in Kano State.

In a statement made available to our correspondent by Hon. Debo Ologunagba,

National Publicity Secretary said in obedience to a Judgment of Court, the NWC has equally declared Barr. Silas Onu as the Ebonyi State Chairman of our great Party.

According to the statement, “to this effect, the Alhaji Shehu Sagagi-led Kano State Executive as well as all Excutive members of our Party at all levels in Kano State are hereby reinstated.”

“Also in obedience to a similar Judgment of Court, the NWC has declared Barr. Silas Onu as the Ebonyi State Chairman of our great Party.”

“All leaders, critical stakeholders, relevant agencies and our teeming members, particularly in Kano and Ebonyi States in the two states should please note.”

Recall that Onu, former caretaker Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Ebonyi chapter, has been sworn in as the party’s new Chairman in Ebonyi.

Onu took over from Chief Tochukwu Okorie, who was elected in a state Congress held in October following his sack by an Abuja Federal High Court, presided by Justice A. Abubakar on Wednesday.

Onu, in an interview with journalists in Abakaliki, said that the judgment had reinforced his belief in the judiciary as a beacon for democracy and the last hope of the oppressed.

He said that his leadership would reposition the party as a strong opposition party in order to wrestle power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Onu said there was no victor and no vanquished, stressing that PDP remains one big united family.

2023: God’s Wrath Waiting – Sule Lamido Threatens Jonathan Over Defection To APC

A former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido has cautioned ex-President Goodluck Jonathan against dumping the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Lamido warned that Jonathan risked God’s wrath if he succumbed to the calls that he should dump PDP for APC.

Some Nigerians have been calling on Jonathan to defect to the APC and contest for the 2023 Presidency.

Reacting to the call, the former President said he can’t tell if he will run for the Presidency in 2023.

However, Lamido, a PDP chieftain, cautioned Jonathan against defecting to APC because the opposition party invested a lot in him.

Lamido said the former President should consider the suffering of PDP members who stood by him during the 2015 campaign before opting to defect to APC.

He disclosed that APC persecuted PDP members for supporting Jonathan during the 2015 Presidential election.

“That means all they went through, the pain, the humiliation, for supporting Jonathan in 2014 was nothing. Even Jega (then-INEC Chairman) was not left out. We went through hell in 2014, all for Jonathan. He called me during the election in Jigawa. I said “sir”, he said “I hope you are safe”. I said “don’t worry sir. We are home and dry”. He said “thank God”.

“I knew the kind of humiliation he went through. How he lost the election through blackmail, threat and division between tribes and Christians and Muslims. I met him in the Presidential Villa four days after Buhari won the (2014) election. What I told him in the Villa is for another day. I won’t say that now. He should remember what I told him. He should take all this into consideration. Is this the way he wants to reward PDP? Is this way he is going to reward PDP for inventing him? Minus PDP, who will ever know anybody called Jonathan? Today, he is an international person, being called upon by the world to perform functions for the world.

“How did he get that kind of status? It is from PDP. Now, he is said to be going to APC because of greed, to destroy all this history of his? God will not allow him. If he goes, God will defend PDP.

“If he goes, he will meet the wrath of God. I urge him not to do it. The people courting him now are liars. They lied to get to the government. I urge him in the name of God, the very God that made him from nothing, to think about PDP which made him from nothing. He should please reconsider.

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; A Consisistent Leader With Inconsistent Followers…

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; A Consisistent Leader With Inconsistent Followers…
The name, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is a not a new name in the polity of Nigeria, Africa, and the western world. It’s a name that exists in the corridor of politics, government, democracy, leadership and humanity.

The man behind the name is an individual many regard as an enigma, a tactician and complete politician due to his effective and visionary style of leadership prowess that strives beyond politics, economy, academia, humanitarian, and the society at large.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the leader that many Lagosians’ regard as the pathfinder of the New Lagos initiative that Lagosian’s currently enjoy .
The continuous developmental plan of the New Lagos cannot be mentioned without the person of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the architect and pathfinder of both human capital and man power development in Lagos and beyond.
His developmental plan of Lagos raised a new crop of unknown followers and politicians emerging from the southwest and southeastern state with effective exemplary leadership styles when opportuned to serve in government.
Many followers of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu that were with him during his years as governor of Lagos state have risen to become Governors, Ministers, several National and State House of Assembly members, Kings and first class traditional rulers, Business moguls to mention a few; the likes of the Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo, current minister of works, Babatunde Fashola, minister of interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, Speaker of the House of Representative, Honorable Femi Gbajabiamila, former Governor of Lagos, Akinwunmi Ambode, present Governor of Lagos, Ondo and Ekiti, Babajide Sanwo olu, Rotimi Akeredolu, Kayode Fayemi and many others would not fail to acknowledge Asiwaju Tinubu as the man who discovered their inherent positive leadership qualities, polished them and gave them the opportunity to serve in different capacity where they all proved their worth to earn a greater recommendation and referral.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is an honored and revered friend of all, a man with friendship across bound, honored with several academic, humanitarian awards and traditional titles across all the six regions of Nigeria with a prominent and revered title of Jagaban-Borgu by the Emir of Borgu Kingdom.
It is no news that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has positioned himself as a future president of Nigeria due to his years of followership under the tutelage of the late sage, Obafemi Awolowo.
His role in NADECO can not be under-mentioned, as he was among those political and social activist that fought against military rule and suppression of democracy in Nigeria. He, alongside the likes of Professor Wole Soyinka, Olusegun Osoba, was among those from the Yoruba extraction who went on exile when the military rulers were after their lives for speaking out for democratic rule to be installed in Nigeria.
Asiwaju Tinubu is one of the few detribalized Nigerian who believe in a united Nigeria beyond ethnic and religious differences, his visionary leadership style helped him build leaders across all regions of Nigeria, that’s why the likes of Chief Joe Igbokwe, Ben Akabueze from the southeast region wouldn’t defy the odd of a man like Tinubu.
In building leadership, Asiwaju has done more than can be expected of an ordinary politician with the quest for power but rather than cling to power, he is a firm believer of shared rotational policy where each region and locality is positively represented and made to be a part of the decision making process of the people.
There is no doubt, Asiwaju will be a good president for Nigeria if there is a general will of the people to give him the mandate but that is the least expected largesse a politician should expect from the masses, rather it is a pointer for more work to be done to convince the general electorate.
Unfortunately for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as consistent and prepared that many have seen him to be building his vision for a shot at the presidency in 2023, not minding every form of criticism and shades thrown at him, his inconsistent followers are the major hurdles and challenges that he has been made to face.
These set of followers are individuals he personally discovered, groomed, and empowered for leadership while he was governor of Lagos state, now that the tide is turned, many of these individuals are presently standing tall to also take from the table he dearly wants to have, and bent of frustrating his ambition.
The same party, All Progressive Congress (APC), that he strived so hard to form as a leader of the defunct Action congress alongside other leaders of CPC and ANPP has found him unworthy of having the ticket of the party without a run for his money and a political turf for him to show his political sagacity and connect.

His immediate protégé that never had the singular might of holding a political office in their respective local government but presently occupy offices in the presidency are those who have stirred the hornet of political differences and disagreement just to propagate their own personal interest without minding the years of preparation that Asiwaju have put in building this vision which everyone will definitely be a part of it when its finally achieved.
Now is the turn of the South to produce the next president, it is unfortunate that majority of the electorate are still doubtful of a southeastern candidate due to past events and history while it is also expedient of the Southwest to fill the void and support the candidacy of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to succeed and correct every anomalies of the Buhari led administration.
The inconsistent followers of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu are certain they can’t win the party ticket, all they want to do is to frustrate the visionary developmental agenda Asiwaju is bringing to governance at the national level.
He has been denied un-waivered access to party officials and mercenaries neither does he occupy a party offices that is recognized in the party constitution but his large arm of supporters and increasing followers are spreading the message of a renewed Nigeria under the leadership of Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
If we can reason beyond ethnic and religious differences and work together to make this vision a reality, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as a president will bring the fresh aura we earnestly desire into leadership and governance in Nigeria.
The northern oligarchy are not bent on retaining power in the region but if the south cant align on a consensus candidate, its obvious the northern region will feeds on the lacuna to produce another vibrant and election worthy candidate who will take governance back to the region for the next four years.
Therefore, it is expedient on the entire people of the South to come together as a region and present a formidable candidate who will be able to earn the trust of Nigerians across party, ethnic and religious line.
The southwest and southeast should be able to provide a viable candidate across party line and stand against the scheme of selfish and greedy northern cabals who are bent on the continuous entrenchment of poverty, unemployment, insecurity and inflation on the general masses while they enrich their pockets and that of their cronies at the expense of the general masses.
A vote for the candidacy of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu both at the upcoming Party primary and 2023 General election is a vote for a Renewed Nigeria where every Nigerian will be part of governance without the thought of ethnic or religious difference.

MNJTF Rescues Female Hostages After Eliminating ISWAP Terrorists

In continuation with Operation Lake Sanity, MNJTF troops (Nigeria and Niger Republics troops) at Forward Operations Base Arege conducted clearance operations in close coordination with the Air Task Force (ATF). The ATF identified intelligence driven targets which they engaged using multiple sorties in the vicinity of Tumbun Fulani and Tumbun Rago, where about twenty terrorists were neutralised. Ground forces then advanced and reached Tunbun Fulani but could not access Tunbun Rago due to marshy terrain.

The criminals on sighting the advancing troops fled and abandoned their check point, pulled off their uniforms and left their rifles and other equipment behind. Tunbun Rago was found deserted with Boko haram corpses and a shallow grave containing Boko haram corpses discovered, as the criminals beat a hasty retreat. Relatedly, the MNJTF Nigerien troops of Sector 4 while on patrol in the general area of Ngagam – Kabalewa and N’guigmi engaged a group of fleeing terrorists, neutralised five BHT/ISWAP insurgents, destroyed two Gun trucks and large stock of arms and ammunitions were recovered.

Sadly, one soldier paid supreme sacrifice and few others were wounded in action, currently receiving treatment at a military hospital.

2. In another encounter with Boko Haram Terrorists/ISWAP insurgents in the course of further clearance operations by MNJTF troops of Sector 1 (Cameroon) in the vicinity of Toumbuma, Kerenua, and Chikingudu neutralized 2 Boko haram criminals and maintained dominance in the area. At the end of the earlier battle engagement around Tunbun Fulani and Tunbun Rago, six (6) traumatized female BHTs hostages managed to escape and were found by own troops who then assisted them and brought them to own troop’s location. They were professionally handled and given medical care in the bush. The rescued women have been moved to Maiduguri for further processing and handover to the civil authorities before they rejoin their families. Preliminary investigation revealed that the escapees who hailed from Adamawa, Borno, Gombe and Yobe states were kidnapped at different places and times by the evil and criminally minded BHTs/ISWAP ranging from October 2020 to April 2021. Details of each escapee is as follows:

a. Grace Daniel age 38 years kidnapped at Mainok along Maiduguri Road On 18 December 2020.
b. Susan Lazarus aged 28 years kidnapped at Kupre Hong LGA Adamawa on 9 April 2021.
c. Jumai Inuwa aged 42 years kidnapped along Damaturu – Maiduguri highway on 19 October 2020.
d. Maria Adamu aged 27 years kidnapped at Gulak Adamawa state on 6 December 2020.
e. Martha Malu aged 25 years kidnapped at Damboa road on 1 December 2020.
f. Malakalya Dambade aged 37 years kidnapped at Mainok along Maiduguri highway on 25 February 2021.

3. The ongoing aggressive clearance patrol into the terrorists’ enclaves, continue to degrade the will and fighting spirit of the insurgents. The offensive operation characterized by raids, deliberate attacks, ambushes and air operations is exacting serious pressures on the insurgents, forcing them to continue retreating and enabling hostages to escape. This momentum would be sustained.

Signed,

Colonel Muhammad Dole

2023: OOkowa, Saraki, Tambuwal, Bala Mohammed In Closed-Door Meeting In Asabaa

As the race for 2023 get thicker, many front-line politicians have began earnest preparation in a bid to be their party flag bearer in the upcoming election. One of such meeting is presently happening at the Delta state Government house between the executive governors of Delta; Patrick Okowa, Bauchi; Bala Mohammed, and Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state alongside the former senate president, Bukola Saraki.

The two northern governors and former senate president are vying on the platform of PDP. They have  already began consultation on the best way forward on how best to unseat the ruling APC from the national seat of power in 2023 by projecting a credible and viable candidate for the opposition party.

2023: Stop Planting Seed Of Hate Among Igbos And Yorubas – Ohaneze Tells Tinubu

The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has warned Ahmed Bola Tinubu, former Governor of Lagos State, to jettison the plan of planting the seed of discord among Ndigbo and Yorubas.

OYC stated this in a press release signed by the National President, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka

OYC while reacting to the meeting of Sen. Bola Tinubu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, with the party caucus of the National Assembly yesterday, Wednesday, March 16, 2022, over his presidential ambition, described it as an attempt to plant the seed of discord between Ndigbo and Yorubas, “who have contributed heavily to the political and economic development of Nigeria.”

It stated that the political differences between Zik and Awolowo were corrected in 1999 when a southeast presidential aspirant and candidate, Dr Alex Ekwueme and Dr Ogbonnaya Onu made a heavy sacrifice on the atonement of ill-political treatment against the Yorubas in 1993 when Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) annulled the election of Chief MKO Abiola.

“We can’t allow a grandfather like Bola Tinubu to plant the seed of hatred, discord political inequality among the new generation of Ndigbo and Yoruba nation. It’s obvious that Bola Tinubu’s presidential project if allowed will put a perpetual discord among the southeast and southwest region, therefore our peaceful coexistence among the two regions is more vital and everlasting than Bola Tinubu’s political interest.

“It’s illogical and unreasonable to allow a grandfather after he must have left the earth, what he planted would continue to grow hate, crises and keep hurting Ndigbo and Yorubas.

“Bola Tinubu’s presidential project is a historical error we must avoid, his presidential ambition will bring negative remote effect to the present and future generations of Ndigbo and Yorubas,” the group said.

“Bola Tinubu ought to without delay become a political hero and father, whose name will not be erased from the political history of Nigeria if he reasonably quits his presidential ambition and supports one presidential aspirant from the southeast in the All Progressives Congress, APC.”

“The southwest between 1999 to 2023 served as the President of Nigeria for eight years and subsequently Vice president for another eight years making it a total of Sixteen years of Presidency. It’s, therefore, morally evil for Bola Tinubu to consider himself qualified to run for the 2023 presidency.

2023: My presidential ambition not for power, Tinubu woos Senators

“At this time Sen. Bola Tinubu has the opportunity to become a hero or a villain. If he still chooses to run, he is making himself a villain before the present and new generation of Igbo and Yoruba extraction,” it added.
