Tension Everywhere As Army Withdraws Military Escort for IBB, Obasanjo, Others During Elections

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai, has ordered the immediate withdrawal of military escorts for retired army generals and others during the elections, the Boss Newspapers report.

The Army Chief also said that there will be no military escorts for politicians even as the army has been mandated to ensure that there is restriction of movement.In his statement, he ordered the military commanders to ensure that anyone caught in doing anything inimical during the elections should be dealt with decisively.

COAS orders is not unconnected with the outcome of the meeting held with President Muhammadu Buhari and other security chiefs on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has asked the COAS, to concentrate on ending the Boko Haram insurgency instead of “dabbling into politics”.

In a statement on Wednesday, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP spokesman, asked Buratai to refrain himself from acts or actions that will suggest in any way that the military has become an arm of a political party.Reacting to a statement by the chief of army staff that the military is bound to obey orders from President Muhammadu Buhari in dealing with ballot box snatches, Ologbondiyan said the president lacks the power to deploy soldiers for elections. He said the deGoogleployment of the military for the elections is an attempt by Buhari to suspend the constitution and assume the role of an emperor.

“Gen. Buratai’s allusion to the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as well as his threats to officers and ranks to execute the unlawful order by President Muhammadu Buhari to participate in the electoral process is an aberration of our laws and a recipe for crisis,” Ologbondiyan said.“Gen. Buratai is counseled to note that the loyalty of the military is to the state and that the President lacks the powers, under our laws, to deploy soldiers for the conduct of elections.

“Our party urges Gen Buratai to concentrate on his very demanding assignment of protecting the territorial integrity of our nation and ending insurgency rather than dabbling into partisan politics at the risk of our national cohesion.“It is imperative to state that by trying to drag the military to participate in the February 23 Presidential elections, President Buhari plots to suspend our constitution, assume the position of an emperor, trigger unrest, subvert our electoral process and derail our democracy.”The PDP asked Buhari and Buratai to end their rationalising of military option as the courts have summarily dismissed the arguments that soldiers are needed to guarantee peaceful elections. He said, “It may interest President Buhari to know that the judgment was sequel to a suit filed by the APC Leader in the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, seeking a declaration that deployment of soldiers during elections is illegal and unconstitutional”.“In case, President Buhari is not aware, as usual, the court directly held that “the Armed Forces have no role in elections” and if soldiers must vote, they must do so in their barracks.“The PDP therefore cautions President Buhari not to allow his desperation to push him to corrupt the patriotism of our military and use them against innocent Nigerians, whose only demand is for a free, fair and credible election.”Please leave your comment below and don’t forget to share.

Koke mocks Cristiano Ronaldo after gesture in Atletico Madrid win over Juventus

It was a night to forget for Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus as they slipped to a 2-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.

The Portuguese superstar unsurprisingly got a hostile reception from the home fans on his return to the Spanish capital, following his trophy-laden stint at rivals Real Madrid.

Having won five Champions League trophies already during his career, Ronaldo was keen to remind those giving him stick of his achievements, as seen in the video below.Koke was asked about the gesture after the game, and the Atleti ace seemingly had a little fun in having a dig at the Juventus forward.

“I don’t know why Cristiano did that gesture, maybe he wanted to say hello to someone,” he is quoted as saying by Calciomercato.The two sides meet again for the second leg on March 12, with Juve now having it all to do to turn the tie in their favour and advance to keep Ronaldo’s hopes of adding a sixth trophy to his collection alive.For now though, it sounds as though Koke is enjoying the moment and the fact that his side hold a commanding lead after an impressive performance on Wednesday night, with Ronaldo arguably better off focusing on the tie in front of him.

While this case shows how brutal some people can be towards their house helps, in August 2018, it was a reverse case. A Nigerian woman was brutally murdered by her maid who used a stone to smash her head in Edo state. A 14-year-old girl who allegedly killed her madam had been paraded at the police command headquarters in Benin. It was gathered that the killer teenager, Miss Hannah Amos, a housemaid was arrested on August 8 for the alleged murder of 71-year-old Mrs Helen Adodo, a day before, by smashing her head with a big stone. The young suspect who had lived with the old woman for about four months since April at Guobadia Street, in uptown Benin, said some unseen spirit who control her, ordered her murder the septuagenarian. Hannah further told reporters that the occultic spirit sternly warned her never to disclose that she was the one responsible for the death of her victim.
