Boko Haram terrorist group has yesterday Saturday July 27th 2019 killed 23 mourners in Borno state on their way back from a funeral.

According to a report by AFP, the attackers on three motorbikes opened fire on a group of men as they walked back from a funeral in Nganzai district near the state capital Maiduguri, local militia leader, Bunu Bukar Mustapha, said.

“Our men recovered 23 dead bodies from the scene of the attack, which happened this morning,” Mustapha told AFP. The men were returning to Badu Kuluwu from nearby Goni Abachari village where they had attended funeral prayers for a relative, Mustapha said.

A Nganzai district official confirmed both the incident and death toll. “I received calls from Nganzai that Boko Haram killed 23 people near Badu Kuluwu this morning,” said the official. Local hunters and militia recovered the bodies after survivors returned to the village and alerted them, Nganzai resident Saleh Masida said.

Boko Haram fighters have been repeatedly attacking Nganzai district. In September last year, the group killed eight people and stole livestock in two villages in the area after residents tried to stop them from taking their animals.

“We Won’t Stop Attack On Igbo Leaders Until They All Pay Dearly For Their Sins” – Nnamdi Kanu Threatens

Nnamdi Kanu has threatened that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) will continue attacking Igbo leaders in foreign countries.

Alleging that soldiers desecrated the Igbo tradition and culture by invading his father’s palace in Umuahia, the IPOB leader also blamed the death of over 600 IPOB members on ‘Operation Python Dance’ which he claimed was instigated and financed by Igbo leaders.

In the press statement titled “Setting the Records Straight…..” which was issued on Tuesday by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary Emma Powerful, IPOB warned that they won’t stop until all Igbo leaders pay dearly for their sins.

The statement partly read, “These men instigated, financed and defended a full-scale bloody military invasion of Biafraland; they tagged Operation Python Dance that led to the torture and untimely death of over 600 Biafrans, 28 of which fell in my compound.

“These men sanctioned the desecration of the home of an Igbo tradition ruler by Fulani soldiers and did not care if my father HRM Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and my mother, who were home with me during the unprovoked invasion, is killed or not.

“In view of the Nuremberg encounter, it has become necessary for us to refresh our memories lest it succumbs to confusion and deliberate misinformation because most people, unlike we IPOB, are in the habit of excusing intolerable evil and wickedness but we not.

“Every perpetrator of evil, every purveyor of iniquity, every merchant of misery and every defender of injustice must and will be held to account.

Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has revealed its plans to convert five forests in kano to grazing reserves for herdsmen.

Ganduje said that his administration had inaugurated a technical committee on farm settlements for herdsmen in the state. He said further that the proposed settlement would assist in boosting socio-economic ventures in the state.

He noted that the settlement was also to discourage the movement of herders from north to south to address herders/farmers crisis.

“We will provide social amenities such as hospital, veterinary clinic, market, security post and schools so that herdsmen will enjoy facilities just like other Nigerians,” Ganduje said.

According to him, herders settlement should not be a national issue, it should be a state issue because they live and flourish in every state.

He said that his administration would redouble efforts to ensure that farmers enjoy more intervention programs and projects to boost agriculture in the state.

Boko Haram Crisis Could Last For More Than 15 Years – Obasanjo Reveals

Former Nigeria’s President, Olusegun Obasanjo has on Tuesday August 20, raised an alarm that the Boko Haram crisis could last for more than 15 years if the educational sector is ignored.

He said this while speaking at a youth programme organised by the Youth Development Centre (an arm of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library) in Abeokuta, the former President expressed fear about Nigeria’s population explosion which will be 450 million in the next 30 years.

He stated that the increased number of children out of school, contributed to insurgency witnessed in the north-east region.

“There should be no Nigerian child that should be out of school for any reason.

“You have already got your Boko Haram in the next 15 years if you don’t do anything about that. So, whatever you are talking about, unless you take care of inclusivity, you will not get there. Quality is important, but inclusivity is much better”

He said.

Obasanjo also recounted how he and the late Gen Murtala Muhammed turned around the country’s fortunes after the1970 civil war, while telling Nigerian youths not to lose hope despite the challenges facing the country.

“Having run the affairs of Nigeria as a military Head of State when some people felt there was virtually no hope, we turned it around.”

Obasanjo added,

“I have tremendous hope in Nigeria; I am an incurable optimist about Nigeria.

“During the Murtala Muhammed government and my government soldiers who were working in Lagos and who had to go to office in public transport did not wear their uniforms, they were ashamed. But within the space of six months, they were proudly wearing their uniforms. So, it can be done.
