    "Our country is about people that God put together"- Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, 8th June 2017.

    I am sorry Mr Acting President but I humbly and respectfully disagree. We must not use God's name in vain. Worse still you have based your assertion on a false premise. I am afraid that you got it completely wrong. The truth is that our country is about people that the British, not God, put together.

  • Govt shouldn’t promote lawlessness —CAN president-elect

    National Church of Nigeria

    THE PUNCH MONDAY JUNE 20 2016

    Friday Olokor, Abuja

    The new President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Dr. Samson Ayokunle, has urged the government at all levels in Nigeria to safeguard the rights of Nigerians and avoid plunging the nation into a state of lawlessness.

    Ayokunle, who said this at in an interview with The PUNCH in Abuja after his election, argued that when a government violated the constitution, such government had given room for people to break the law.

    The cleric, who explained that he had a premonition that he would lead Christians in Nigeria, advised President Muhammadu Buhari to “maintain balance and keep close to constitution” irrespective of his religious affiliation to avoid opening the door for lawlessness in the society.

    The CAN president-elect stated, “I want to advise the present government to maintain balance and keep close to constitution irrespective of the religious belief of those in government. The government should respect the constitution of Nigeria because if the government breaks the constitution of Nigeria on religion alone, they have already opened the door for lawlessness in the society.”

    Ayokunle, the President of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, called on Islamic leaders to talk to their followers who, he said, were not giving them honour by what they were doing.

    He added, “They (children) are bringing disgrace to the religion of Islam; we have existed together for many years without this type of development, so it is the duty of the Islamic leaders in Nigeria to look for those who are radicalising their children and turning them into murderers and be able to apprehend them and hand them over to the government or speak to them to teach what is right.

    “To say that they are not Muslims is so embarrassing. So, who are they? Are they Christians? Are they pagans? If they are pagans, why do they owe allegiance to the Quran? Do pagans hold Quran or owe allegiance to it?”

    Ayokunle criticised Nigeria’s membership of the Organisation of Islamic Countries.

    According to him, Islamic leaders should mentor their children properly and ascertain who is “radicalising their children and turning them into murderers” and be able to teach what is right to reduce religious intolerance.

    He added, “Whenever the government is not upholding the sanctity of the constitution in terms of the secularity of our existence, the church must speak out without fear of favour. “For example, we have been talking of OIC. Does the government of Nigeria have the right to take the country to OIC? Is it in keeping with the spirit of the constitution? No and when you continue to push people, the limit is to push them to the wall.

    “So the government of Nigeria should not take things for granted and think that Christians are fools and they will be seen to be promoting one religion above the other or favour one religion to the detriment of the other.

    “Whenever we see that, we are going to tell them to be very careful and we are going to speak out. Who you are going to worship is a fundamental right of every individual and government is there to protect that, not to force one religion on the other.”

    According to Ayokunle, the recent attack on a Christian for allegedly eating during fasting in Kaduna was the height of religious intolerance and bestiality.

    He said, “Somebody was going to eat in the afternoon; he was not a Muslim. What right do you have to go and stab that person in a law-abiding society? When you are not from the bush, you are not a beast, how can you just behave like that? What is Nigeria becoming in the name of religion?

    “So these are the things we must all rise to condemn. Since nobody has monopoly to guns and violence, we should not continue to provoke people.

    “There is a theory in Psychology that instigation to aggression depends on the degree of frustration. If you continue to frustrate a people they may end up becoming aggressive; we don’t want that state.”

  • GRAZING RESERVE: OBJECTION AT HOUSE OF REP

    House of Reps.

    MEMORANDUM SUBMITTED TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES COMMITTEE ON AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION AND SERVICES ON INCESSANT CLASHES BETWEEN PASTORALISTS, FARMERS AND FARMING COMMUNITIES

     

    PROLOGUE

    BACKGROUND AND INTRODUCTION

    This paper is presented by Professor Funmilayo Adesanya-Davies, a woman. As the only woman, making a presentation, looking at the grazing bill through the eyes and perception of the woman will be one of the wisest things the National Assembly will have to do. The reasons are not farfetched. She is the mother of not just her children but the nation's children. Also, she is fashioned by God, the creator to be a fitted help, not only for her husband but the whole community of men.

    As a mother, I see this bill rather than an attempt to give the Fulani herdsmen space, but as an attempt to institutionalise Boko Haram throughout the country and cripple our children with fears of a people, who rather than love human beings, are more caring and more intimate with their herds. Fear has torments and as mothers, we see our children being tormented physically and even psychologically and emotionally. Time will not permit me to do justice in analysing the nature of the torments and their effects on our children. As an adult, let me recount my ordeal as a university professor, living near students’ hostels on the University campus.

    I have Fulani Nomads living behind my house in Port Harcourt. They are wild, uncivilized and inaccessible. They wake us up at four 4 o’clock am daily and make everyone including all my students living in several four 4-storey buildings nearby have high blood pressure. I hope those buildings will not crash soon around my university. When I offered to buy them a grinding machine, they said pounding is their culture, yet their women showed me bleeding blistered hands. When I insisted that I would buy the grinder, they asked me how I would be fuelling it. When I told them to go to the nearby grinder to grind, they said they don’t have N20 naira to grind. When the Iwofe University community told them that they would be reported to the police authorities, they threw such great tantrums threatening that they would wipe away the entire university community and the whole Universe!

    Their utterances and actions portray that they are ABOVE THE LAW. Everybody and even farmers who cherish life are terrified of them as they kill, rape, bomb, loot and maim anyone that entreats them. I had to go and complain to my brother, the Alhaji, who was hosting them on his land in Port Harcourt, to please intervene; which he graciously obliged me.

    This should not be treated as an isolated case because I represent the so many women of Nigeria who may never be confident enough to present a memorandum of this nature. I carry their pains and anxieties here because I am a woman like them. As wife, I wish to kneel down and beg our men not to allow them to spread this hostility for whatever reasons which they may be advancing, not at this point in time in our history as a nation, when we are struggling with Boko Haram Insurgents.

    I will cite a second testimony as a Kwaran from Ira, Kwara State Nigeria. For some time now, whenever, I go home, I observe that the women do not go to their farms anymore. Upon enquiry from the Oba and the women themselves, they explained that the Fulani herdsmen have taken over all their farms with all their crops are eaten up by their cows. They further exclaimed that the herdsmen rape and kill if they dare sight them on their farms. The men also do not bother going at all. The Kabiyesi said he has intervened, but the policemen are also afraid of the Fulani herdsmen. So the Farming occupation has thus been truncated. GOD help us!

    To my mind, the Fulani herdsmen are business people like others seeking opportunity to market and enlarge their industry. Even now doctors are warning that red meat consumption should be curtailed and not as healthy as we thought. What right has the Nigerian Government to forcefully take community lands by legislation to enlarge the Fulanis cow business? Is it that other livestock farmers eg snail, goat etc. will also in every State be given a land as they desire for the enlargement of their businesses throughout the country? Is this the wish of the average Nigerian or is it that the Fulanis have terrorized us so much such that our husbands have become cowards to please them? God forbid! If our husbands will not protect us, we will have no choice but to move out on the street, if this bill is passed, to be killed by the bullets of our motherland.

     

    HIGHLIGHTS
    The Federal Government plans to encourage the Cow Fulani Breeders to establish private Cattle Ranches and Grazing Reserves which is outdated, unscientific and unsustainable. That the nomadic culture of moving cattle from one place to another is not economically sound and that the culture should change for the creation of private cattle ranches with access to all the necessary amenities like schools, hospitals, Banks and proximity to Agro allied industries like Dairy, Tannery and Beef Production.

    The startling statistics on the un-productivity of the current nomadic system is evident. The population of Cattle in Nigeria is 15million as against Brazil’s 220 million. Our dairy/milk production is extremely poor with 1L/cow compared to Brazil and Saudi Arabia of 30-40L/cow). Saudi Arabia produces 10 million pints of milk daily while Nigeria spends $1.32 million annually on importation of milk powder.

    The Government is to assist Breeders with grazing grass seed and other incentives.

     

    CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA (Nigerian Graduate Christian Fellowship Submission – An Affiliate of CAN)

    A)     Grazing reserve/grazing route is unsustainable, conflicts with Land use act of our constitution that vested the power on land allocation to State Governors and not the Federal Government. It is also prone to conflicts with host communities and Farmers.

    B)      The best solution is private ownership of modern day cattle ranches with access to veterinary services, Schools, Irrigation/water supply and other social amenities

    C)      It is wrong for Federal Government to seize a community land and give it to Private businessmen who are cattle breeders as it favours one group at the expense of others.

    D)     The land mass in Northern Nigeria far outstrips what obtained in the South. The entire South eastern states have a land mass of 28,982 km2 which is smaller than Kogi State (29,582 km2)!

    The entire southern states in the west, east and south south is less than a third of the land mass in the North. It is therefore wrong for Government to allocate land from the South to breeders from the North.

    E)      Sambisia forest which is approximately 60,000 Km2 and has more than 6million hectares of land can be used as a national ranch where all breeders from different parts of the country can breed their cattle. This will help to develop the area and derive Boko Haram their haven.

    F)      That the Fulani Herdsmen causing havoc, raping women, and armed with sophisticated weapons is a grave security threat to the country and should be treated as terrorists.

    G)     Government’s proposal to solve herdsmen/farmers incessant clashes by introducing grazing land reserve all over the country will in our opinion extend their terrorist activities all over the country and this is not acceptable.

    H)     The idea that grazing reserves as a panacea to the problem is not only archaic, but unscientific, unsustainable and most modern nations including Saudi Arabia have introduced ranches instead of Nomadism.

    I)        Moreover, cattle rearing as practiced in Nigeria  is a private business, therefore it is unfair for Government to acquire land from Farmers which is their only means of livelihood and give same to the Fulani Herdsmen free of charge.  In summary, we advocate the Ranching system which will restrict every Farmer to his own portion of land thus eliminating incessant clashes and unnecessary loss of lives and properties.

    RECOMMENDATIONS BY CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA (CAN)

    1.   No grazing rights, routes or reserves (3Rs) because it is private business and tax payers’ money should not be used as in other normal private businesses in the country.

    2.   Loans should be sourced for through banks, Federal/State ministries, like other businesses in Nigeria to facilitate their education as an association to improve themselves so that they can fit in with 21st century Nomad practices in line with the millennium development goals. It is a well known fact that the Federal Government has released billions of naira for Grazing Reserves in Northern Nigeria which we presume should be enough.

    3.   Lands should be sourced at state level or through Northern Governors’ forum where the cows will be in their natural habitat in northern Nigeria. This should not be done by COERCION, MANIPULATION, INTIMIDATION, ENFORCEMENT OF LAW or THE PASSING OF ANY BILL INTO MOTION but with PERSUASION and ENCOURAGEMENT. State Governors should be adequately educated on what they stand to benefit.

    4.   Ranches/Reserves should be restricted to state of origin of Nomads or anyone into animal husbandry and the remaining untapped, uncultivated vast land space on the entire planet which happens to be in Northern Nigeria.

    5.   Chief Awolowo said “Tap and pipe water from the Atlantic Ocean to irrigate the whole of Northern Nigeria like other deserts of the world and you will feed the entire world from here”.

    6.   There should be no driving of herds all over the nation as the excuse to mass murder Nigerians in the South.

    7.   All Nigerian borders should be tightened, because most of these so called Fulani herdsmen who are actually Boko Haram and illegal immigrants from neighbouring Niger, Chad, Burkina Faso, Benin Republic etc. They are definitely not our Nigerian brothers.

     

    CONCLUSION:

    1.   WE BELIEVE THAT THE NATIONAL GRAZING BILL IS A SUBTLE WAY FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO ISLAMISE NIGERIA. So, in order to alleviate and prove our fears wrong, such a BILL SHOULD NEVER BE PASSED INTO MOTION because it is not a LEGISLATIVE ISSUE.

    2.   We are of the opinion that there should be constant dialogue with all the stake holders to formulate a holistic plan that will promote peace, harmony and advancement of our Livestock industry, so that we don’t divide Nigeria into Southeria and Northeria either overtly or covertly.

     

     

    GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

    GOD BLESS THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA!!!!!!!!

    The United Church of Christ in Nigeria (HEKAN) has condemned the arrest of 40 of its Sunday school pupils and two teachers by personnel of the Federal Road Safety Corps in Kaduna, while on their way to attend the annual HEKAN National Sunday School Camp at the church headquarters in the state.

  • HIS WORD FOR NOW SERIES: GOD’S MESSAGE FOR IGBO NATION THROUGH VICTORIA ADEKOYA alias MADUEGBUNAM OGBONNAYA

    Torah

    The major reason why I am writing this specific message to the Igbo nation emanates from what I have heard and observed about the Igbo nation in the past few weeks. I will first of all give out extracts of my  report on the Igbo prayer crusade I carried out between 2005 and 2006 and then analyse what God caused me to see in visions and dreams in the past few days that caused me to go back to Nnewi in Anambra state to pray for Igbo nation afresh.

    Incidentally, my two Igbo names I mentioned above were given to me directly by God. – Maduegbunam: - No man can kill you; I was going through attacks while preparing for the 2006 crusade. And Ogbonnaya: - True child of the father on the 16th of April 2017 because of my concern about the happenings in Igbo nation. On the 14th of April God called me Joel. I believe He expects me like Joel in the Bible to declare His message whether people believe, accept it or not.
    In Feb. 2005, as I was praying one evening in the compound of my house, the Lord spoke to me the following words, “Go to Onitsha the citadel of mammon worship in Igbo nation and throw missiles at it.” In obedience to that command I travelled to Onitsha in March 2005, stayed in a hotel at Nkpor and prayed over Igbo land. I also went to Onitsha main market and the water-front of River Niger and prayed for the land. As I waited on the Lord and prayed in the hotel in Onitsha and pondered on the assignment over the following months, the Holy Spirit downloaded into my heart through dreams, visions and other avenues the following points:

    1. Part of the prophecy given to me by Prophet Dick Mills on the 9th of April 1993 was that God was going to use me to bring healing to nations that have seen strife and turmoil. Igbo land had been through the civil war in Nigeria.

    2. Igbo people lost a lot of material things during that war and this has engendered bitterness in their hearts with a determination to make as much money as possible to show the rest of Nigeria that they can make their mark in the nation.

    3. In the process of making money by all means they sold their soul and their land to mammon. They also neglected other things like education, helping their community members to rise up etc. for the sake of making money at all costs. Unlike in the 50s and 60s when the Igbo people were in the fore front educationally and would jointly put together resources to educate their compatriot within and outside of Nigeria, the Igbo men especially would make do with little or no education and would opt for doing any kind of business rather than seek further education. A half educated man would rather pour his money on sending his wife to school even up to PHD level and would not seek further education for himself.

    4. Because of the controlling influence of mammon on the Igbo nation, the system whereby a master would train his servant in business and seek to start up for  him a business of his own after some years, has been thoroughly abused where each seek to dupe the other and would go to any length including occultic ways to achieve this.

    5. The Igbo man would do anything to travel out of the country to various countries of the world. Indeed there is hardly any country in the world you would not find an Igbo man. Many have been known to travel on foot across the Sahara desert to North Africa in order to get to Europe. In the process many die on the way for lack of food and water. Many abscond to Europe while on pilgrimage to Israel etc.

    6. In the process of making money the Igbo man had gotten himself into all kinds of fraudulent businesses including drugs and 419 thereby giving his nation a bad name in many countries of the world.

    7. Onitsha as God revealed to me is the gateway to Igbo land and it is also the stronghold of mammon worship. In fact Pastor Nelson Emerenini of Revelation of God’s Arm Ministry in Epe said he saw in the Spirit, the prince of Niger come out of the river to hand over something to Onitsha traders. Communities in Igbo land encourage this by giving heed only to the voice of those who have money and putting so much financial demands on the first born son. So to make money, young men make covenants with the devil using their relatives and also their own lives for the deal.

    8. The second major demon that God asked me to deal with in Igbo nation is religion. Religion and mammon and all kinds of idolatry have become interwoven in Igbo land. Igbo people majorly belong to religious organizations which encourage idolatry and worship of the dead. (Necromancy). They pray through images of dead people and all kinds of objects in the belief that God hears their prayers. When they perceive their prayers are not answered they go back to their ancestral shrines to consult household gods. I have heard and seen in the Spirit many churches being set up on occult and sometimes human blood sacrifice in order to gather people and money and many times these have branches outside of the country thus pandering to the whims of mammon. On my latest visit to Nnewi, I was happy to hear that the notorious Okija shrine has been dealt with and that the town is being opened up to true gospel and economic development. Thanks be to God!

    9. God revealed to me the main reason for sending me to Igbo land:

    1. There is a core of Igbo people who are determined to walk in righteousness and integrity and are refusing to serve mammon but the enemy is resisting their progress. As I have stated above even the Pentecostal churches are being defiled by mammon and occultism.

    2. The Igbo people are about the most traveled people in Nigeria. As God has purposed to use Nigeria and Nigeria’s resources human and material in His End-Time plan to reach nations. God has put the passion to travel in the Igbo nation to make them readily available for use to reach the nations of the earth with the gospel of Jesus Christ. However, God could not use Igbo nation as they are. His plan is to first redeem their soul which they had sold to mammon and religion and send them back to those countries where they have defiled His Name in their quest for money by all means.

    3. God caused me to know what mammon does to those under his control. He takes over their:

    1. Mouth- so that they only tell lies and fabricate words to get things they do not deserve. It is difficult for them to tell the truth.

    2. Sight- so they only see things the way money wants them to see it for selfish motives. They will not see the things God wants them to see. They only see those things they can use to make money physically or by occult means.

    3. Hearing- money language is all they hear. They have itchy ears for information on where and how to make money.

    4. Sense of smell controlled by money. They smell shady deals and businesses from afar. They don’t smell danger even if it is under their nose.

    5. Hands only move to do things that deceive in order to make money.

    6. Feet lead them to go anywhere for the sake of money and there they commit atrocities including ritual murder.

    7. Intellect directed to 419 etc. They do not understand any other language.

    When God gave me the assignment for Igbo nation I did not realize how unique it was until I started facing serious challenges from the demons of the land. God showed me a vision, where I saw the kingpins of the occult in Igbo land, wearing red garments sitting on thrones and a man in animal skin reporting me before them. There was so much attack against me physically, financially, against - family, friends, supporters etc. That was when God gave me the name ‘Maduegbunam’ in my dream to sustain me and He also showed me white intercessors praying for me in my dream.

    The day I took my banners and handbills for the crusade in Onitsha was the worst day of the riot when many Hausa men were killed in Onitsha. I was determined to go to Onitsha that day even though many people tried to stop me from doing so. I actually saw a man’s body still burning on the Niger Bridge as we crossed from Asaba to Onitsha. On the last day of the crusade, a stormy wind broke all the equipment I had borrowed to do the crusade. I asked ministers of God at the crusade to come up the podium so we could point our hands toward the river Niger to pray against the water spirit in the river. Only one came up. Another minister later told me that a voice told her to leave me alone and go home. After the crusade, God revealed to me that we had hit that strong man with several heavy stones which resulted in the release of many people from his bondage.

    However, a few days after I returned to Lagos, riot broke out in many areas of Anambra state- Onitsha, Nnewi, Awka etc. which resulted in the death of many people. Many reasons were given for it. I phoned Rev. Dominic of the National Evangelical Mission Onitsha who was then the chairman of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) Onitsha, who had lent me the equipment that was damaged. He said that rioting was the manifestation of the anger of the water spirit we had dealt with at the crusade.
    The reason why I am currently concerned came partly from my experience when I recently went to Ugboukwu to attend the burial of late Rev. Mrs. Ezeokeke, the wife of late Bishop Benson Ezeokeke, General Overseer of Salvation for all Missions, Onitsha who had hosted and encouraged me when I did the 2006 crusade, It appears that the spirit of clannishness, arrogance, mammon worship and occultism that I had led the people to deal with in 2006 has come back full blast and it is the major thing that is hindering the Igbo nation from fulfilling her God given assignment to be key Nigerians in the forefront of evangelizing nations. The Igbo peoples’ God given passion to travel and do what they believe in is supposed to be used to evangelize nations. But the way they are behaving they are killing the vision. That is why God is allowing them to suffer xenophobia and all kinds of harassment in other nations because of His love for them. - It is the child that you love that you deal with seriously when he offends. To make matters worse, I learnt that many Igbo people are going into Islam for the sake of money. In fact I met an Igbo man in Abuja who told me their elder brother led them into Islam. This young man was a drug trafficker until he was arrested and jailed in America. He died in prison and was resurrected by God who caused him to return to Christ. He said that their elder brother is victimizing him for abandoning Islam. Igbo people are called to evangelize Muslims not to go into Islam. I sent out text messages to mostly Igbo people on these issues so they can pray for their deliverance. Then on the 11th of April 2017, I saw a tall man wearing Igbo hat standing beside a black wall on which was pasted - # mark- dripping with blood. God caused me to know that it means Igbo people had made and sealed blood covenant with the devil. This vision caused me to send out afresh prayer request to cancel by the precious blood of Jesus Christ every blood covenant the Igbo nation may have made with the devil.
    I know that many Igbo people including my friends would do when they see this message, as I have shared with some of them and have noticed their negative reactions- some in silence and some out rightly telling me I am wrong in my assessment of the situation. Yet there are some like Bro. Obi Okwudili of Harvest Force International, a man from Onitsha who is in total agreement with what I am saying. In fact he suggested I should write this message specifically for Igbo nation. God bless him and others like him in Jesus Name. Apart from what I have stated about the two Igbo names God gave to me, God also gave me the first message in my - His Word For Now Series in Igbo language “Elebe Ndi ugbono Oginni ne me” which my Igbo friends translated to mean “Where are the laborers? “What is happening?” These I believe is His way of authenticating “this Ijebu woman married to an Ijebu man” the boldness to share this message. Also many of my spiritual and financial encouragers over many years have been Igbo people. In fact, one Igbo friend from Enugu State almost singlehandedly financed three of the four major crusades I carried out in Nigeria between 2002 and 2006. Some have even contributed to my international travels. I will still carry out God’s assignment as instructed by Him even if I end up not having friends any more. I have also delivered castigating messages to the Ijaws, Tivs, Ijebus and to UK as led by God over the past 15 years. Incidentally, after my current visit to Nnewi to pray afresh for the Igbo nation, I have been experiencing some spiritual attacks. On the 30th of April, the day after my return to Lagos, I saw a man in the spirit rushing towards me with a machete in his hand. I stood waiting to see what will happen. Suddenly, just before he hit me something veered him away from me and he became illuminated. My prayer is that anyone who had sold himself to the devil to do havoc either against me or the work of God will not succeed but will be transformed to be a holy vessel to work the work of God. I am still repeating and praying that - the Igbo nation will need to cast away and be delivered from the bondage of clannishness, arrogance, necromancy, syncretism, occultism and most especially mammon worship so they can be useful as God intends them to be as ‘evangelizers’ of nations before Jesus comes. - Every church, ministry or enterprise built on occultism, human sacrifice, water spirit foundation in Igbo land and anywhere in Nigeria should be exposed and scattered along with their tentacles in the nations. - That God should cause the perpetrators of this evil to repent and bow before God so that they will not be destroyed along with the works of their hands in Jesus Name.

     God will not ask on the final day their blood from my hand just like He warned me when I was reluctant to deliver His judgment message to the United Kingdom in 2010 Eze.3:18. If I am in trouble with man God will deliver me. But if I get into trouble with God who will deliver me?

    God bless the Igbo nation!

     

    Yours in Obedience to God’s Assignment,

    PRESS STATEMENT

    by

    Southern Kaduna Peoples' Union (SOKAPU)

    26th Dec. 2016

     

    Once again the Southern Kaduna Peoples' Union (SOKAPU) has had to painfully send out condolences to the murdered people of Goska village in Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State. Ironically, on a day that our people ought to be joyously celebrating the Christmas festivities, was the day they were reduced to burying their loved ones, treating the wounded in hospitals and coping with a fresh batch of internally displaced people of Goska village whose houses were burnt down. 

  • Huriwa To Buhari: How Dare You Release Boko Haram terrorist (Kabiru Sokoto) While Innocent Nnamdi Kanu Is Languishing In Prison? Deny It If It's A Lie

    Kingdom News

    The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to tell Nigerians if he has freed Kabiru Sokoto, who is the only Boko Haram terrorist convicted for the killing of over 50 worshippers at the Mandalla Catholic Church near Abuja.

    HURIWA recalled that only few months back, Justice Ademola Adeniyi of the Federal High Court in Abuja had sentenced to life imprisonment Mallam Kabiru Abu baker Dikko (aka Kabiru Sokoto) and as at 2015, he was being held in Kuje prison following his conviction over his role in connection with the 2011 Christmas Day bombing of St. Theresa Catholic Church, Mandalla, Niger State.
    The blast in respect of which he was given life conviction, claimed about 44 lives and wounded 75 others.

    The National Coordinator of HURIWA, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, and the National Media Affairs Director, Miss Zainab Yusuf, in a statement yesterday, recalled specifically that prior to his sentencing, the terror mastermind, Sokoto, was accused of withholding information on the plan to bomb St. Theresa Church.

    The non-governmental organisations (NGO) called to remembrance that Sokoto was also charged with failure to disclose the plan to law-enforcement officer as soon as practicable, an offence contrary to Section 7(1) and punishable under Section 33(1) of Terrorism and Prevention Act 2011.

    Part of the statement read: “Sokoto was further accused of supporting act of terrorism by training 500 men and inciting them to commit terrorist act, contrary to Section 4(1)(a) and punishable under Section 33(1)(b) of Terrorism and Prevention Act 2011.

    “The accused allegedly facilitated the commission of terrorist act to wit by planting and encouraging some boys (now at large) at Mabira, Sokoto in Sokoto State with the intention to bomb the police headquarters and some other government agencies in the state. "The alleged offence is contrary to Section 15(2) of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (Establishment) Act 2004 and punishable under the same Act.”

    However, HURIWA has affirmed that since the current President Buhari administration accepted to free some Boko Haram terrorists being detained in exchange for the elusive Chibok school girls allegedly kidnapped over two years ago, the social media platforms are replete with reports of the release of this notorious terror mastermind who is one of the very few already convicted.

    The rights group said it would amount to dancing on the graves of the innocent souls slaughtered by these terrorists for the current government to enter into this sort of satanic arrangements to set free a man who plotted the bombing of a Catholic Church filled up with worshippers thereby resulting in the slaughter of scores of Nigerians including babies and the elderly.

    HURIWA also lambasted the current federal government for failing to aggressively prosecute the terror suspects in detention but has decided to engage in subterranean deals with dreaded armed terrorists for whatever considerations which are however unconstitutional, illegal and undemocratic.

    The rights group also asked the president to address Nigerians and clear the impression that his government has decidedly released a hardened terrorist convicted for his crimes against humanity even when political prisoners like Mr. Nnamdi Kanu is languishing in prison.
