The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corp (NSCDC), Zamfara state command has three suspects and recovered 40 jerrycans of petrol (PMS) suspected to be transporting to bandits in the state.

 

The state NSCDC commandant, Sani Mustafa, who disclosed this while addressing newsmen at command headquarters in Gusau on Thursday, February 22, 2024, said one Sani Yakubu was also arrested for vandalizing electric cables at a secondary school in Gusau.

 

“On the 18 February, 2024, one Sani Yakubu (M) 41 years of age was arrested for vandalization of electric cables suspected to have been vandalized from Government Day Secondary School Tudun Wada Gusau,” he said.

He said that preliminary investigations have revealed that the suspect is notorious for vandalization of electrical wires within the said school premises in the state.

During interrogation, the suspect confessed to have vandalized electrical fittings and wires from the said school and sold the items to a crap dealer, Abubakar Ibrahim, at Labin labin area of Tudun Wada Gusau metropolis, at the rate of N23,000.

“On this fateful day, he broke into the school premises, burgled a window, and with the aid of a table, climbed into the ceiling and vandalized the electrification system of the school’s classroom block,”

 

Exhibits found with the suspect included 40 bunches of copper wires from the crime scene.

 

“On the 20th February 2024, at about 1501hours one Malam Isah Ahmed (M) of Bakura town was apprehended by the operatives of the Corps alongside two others by names, Usman Aliyu (M) and Habibu Abdullahi (M) for purchasing PMS products in large numbers of jerrycans in a black tinted Golf Wagon with registration number GMM 40 XA Zamfara, from Anshaibu Integrated Global Resource Limited, Talata Mafara.

“This act contravenes the Executive Order issued by the State Government on the banning the sale of PMS products in jerrycans,”

“This Order was an attempt by the State Government to cut off supplies of PMS to the marauding brigands. This singular act is charged with an attempt to commit an offence contrary to section 95 of the penal code.

“Exhibits found with the suspects include 40 jerrycans of 25 litres each loaded with PMS.”

Commandant Sani Mustapha vowed to ensure that the state is purged of all manner of criminalities.

 

He therefore warns the general public to stay away from crimes of any sort as offenders will be ruthlessly dealt with in the state.

Chief Mike Ahamba, SAN! Ugolorji!!! Celebrating a noble man, brightest scholars and legal icons.

Chief Mike Ahamba

If integrity and nobility were a person’s name, it would be Chief Mike Ahamba – a thoroughbred intellectual of the highest order whose integrity permeates everything with nobility as its anchor.

Some time ago, he informed me — only a few people know this, that Mike Ahamba has been President Muhammad Buhari’s personal lawyer for over two decades and a member of his political inner circle.

He has led the legal team in all the president’s electoral cases, up to the Supreme Court.
However, in 2015, Dee Ahamba pursued a different political path, distinct from his friend’s.

Though their personal relationship remained cordial, they remained on different political sides through out the President’s 8 years tenure, as Dee Ahamba refused to compromise his integrity by supporting a presidency that conflicted with his political beliefs at the time.

Indeed, it was in Dee Ahamba the saying of my mentor and personal idol, Prof. Chinua Achebe came to be a reality — ‘One of the truest tests of integrity is its blunt refusal to be compromised’.

Today, on his birthday, we salute his courage in maintaining his impeccable integrity and standing up for what he considers right.

We wish him good health, longevity, and the courage to continue upholding his values.

Happy birthday, sir!

Ambrose Nwaogwugwu.

Nigeria Police Service Commission (PSC) on Wednesday urged President Bola Tinubu to promptly dismiss the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun, accusing him of undermining the police recruitment process.

The PSC also refuted allegations of corruption leveled against it.

During a press briefing in Abuja, Adoyi Adoyi, Chairman of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) and Joint Union Congress of the PSC, expressed discontent over what he termed as false accusations against the Commission.

Over the weekend, the IGP, through a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, claimed that the recruitment process was riddled with irregularities and corruption.

Adoyi countered these claims, revealing that there was reliable information suggesting that elements within the police force had attempted to insert over 1,000 names into the recruitment list clandestinely.

“This action undermines the integrity of the recruitment process and the credibility of the police force,” Adoyi stated, urging the President to act swiftly to maintain the integrity of the nation’s police recruitment.
