The Police in Rivers State have arrested suspects who allegedly abducted and buried their victim alive after collecting ransom.

The victim, Praise Daakian, is a former chairperson of the Community Development Committee in Kereken-Boue, Khana Local Government Area of the state.

The suspects identified as Baridapdo Igia, 33, and Elvis Gordon, 26 allegedly buried alive the victim after collecting N200, 000 from his wife as part payment for ransom.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Olatunji Disu stated this on Monday in Port Harcourt, during his maiden news briefing after assuming duties in the state, Punch newspaper reported.

Mr Disu did not state whether the victim had died or was rescued.

The suspects, Mr Disu said, were arrested on 15 November in separate operations by officers of the Anti-Cultism Unit in Kereken-Boue community of Khana Local Government Area.

“On the day of resumption, I had before me a security deficit in many areas of Rivers State. One of those areas was Khana Local Government, and we immediately deployed tactical units to quell the situation.”

“After a series of interrogations, the duo confessed to being leaders of Iceland and Degbam cult groups in Khana Local Government Area, and have been terrorising Khana Local Government Area for the past three years.

“These cult groups have been known to have endless clashes in the community. During interrogations, they also admitted to kidnapping and burying alive Mr Daakian.

The police said they have also arrested three suspected armed robbers and cultists in the Trans-Amadi area of the state.

The police commissioner identified the three suspects as Elsharawy Joseph, 27, Thankgod Achese, 23, and Ibrahim Ishaq, 25, and said they were intercepted in a tricycle and arrested on 19 November by the police while on patrol along Danjuma Drive.

“Upon a thorough search, one locally made pistol and a dagger were recovered, alongside the tricycle which is suspected to be stolen. The suspects confessed to the crime of robbery using the ‘one chance’ model and have robbed and stole phones and valuables from unsuspecting victims.

“They use their tricycle (Keke) along Odili Road and Abuloma areas to search for passengers to rob and push the passengers out after forcibly taking their valuables. They owned up to using a dagger and a locally made pistol to scare their victims. They obtained the pistol from one Nkpogeto, who is still at large.”

Mr Disu urged members of the public to furnish the police with necessary information to enable them to fight crimes in the state.

No fewer than 500 private legal practitioners have volunteered to defend Alhaji Nasir Gawuna, the Kano governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the Supreme Court.

This was made public on Tuesday, in Abuja.


Joseph Onwudiwe, Spokesperson for the lawyers, under the aegis of the Guardians of Democracy and Rule of Law, announced the development at a news conference.


Onwudiwe explained that the gesture was to enhance the country’s democracy.


He said: “Nigerians have observed keenly the situation unfolding in Kano State regarding the March 18 governorship election.


“As a group saddled with the onerous responsibility of safeguarding our democratic ethos and values, we are no longer comfortable with the unwarranted attacks on the judiciary.


“And certain moves to blackmail the Court into giving backing to wanton electoral malfeasance and vote heist.

“We will no longer fold our arms as lawyers and watch the judiciary be continuously harangued and the temple of justice desecrated by a group of people who failed to perfect an electoral heist”.

Onwudiwe applauded the sound reasoning that resonated in the judgments of the Tribunal and the Court of Appeal.

He said that the judgments aligned with the yearnings and aspirations of the majority of Kano people as expressed in the valid number of votes cast in the March 18 Kano Governorship election.

He said the group was not surprised that Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State and his agents had become insistent in selling propaganda in the name of a contradiction in the CTC of the Appeal Court Judgment.

“Nigerians will have nothing but pity for a party in a suit who finds no premise upon which to launch a successful appeal against a judgement backed by law and fact.

“May we repeat here that the judgement of the Court of Appeal on this case was a very straightforward one which rightly dismissed the appeal of Abba Yusuf and upheld his sack by the tribunal,” he said.

He said that the courts envisaged clerical errors in judgement and therefore embedded in their handbook and rules, enactments that empowered it to vary its judgement to reflect original intentions.

Onwudiwe urged Nigerians not to be misled by the narrative being pushed by the agents of Governor Yusuf who were grasping at the clerical error on page 67 of the CTC of the Court of Appeal judgement.

This, he said, was geared to bring the honourable justices who delivered the sound judgement to public disrepute.

He stressed that the importance of the judiciary in keeping the country’s democracy alive and thriving could never be overemphasised.

“We are with the judiciary and we assure them of our unflinching support as they move to save Nigeria’s democracy from vote riggers and election fraudsters.

“We must sanitise our electoral system now and build a strong democratic wall against vote inflation and other electoral malfeasance,” Onwudiwe said.

He called on peace-loving Nigerians to rise in defence of the country’s democracy.


Popular Yoruba actress, Bisola Badmus, has opened up on her battle with a brain disease called, Encephalopathy.

Encephalopathy is a brain disease that alters the mental state, leaving one confused and not acting like they usually do.

This was made known in a post on the actress’s Instagram page, during her birthday celebration.

Badmus disclosed that she had been battling the brain  disease for over one year.
“Over a year now I have been battling with health issues (Encephalopathy). I cannot even wish my enemy such illness.

It was a tough one indeed that made me stay away from social media.

” In between, I lost my precious mother.

Unquestionable God, I thank you for everything particularly for me to witness yet another birthday.

“I will be an ungrateful soul if I fail to appreciate my family and friends, colleagues in the industry, business associates and the brands I represent for standing by me during the challenging period. Thank you all.”

The Zamfara State Unit of the National Cash Transfer Programme says it has started investigation into the alleged non-payment of more than 10,000 cash transfer beneficiaries in Tsafe Local Government Area of the state.

More than 10,000 beneficiaries from 17 communities in the local government area staged a protest on Thursday.


They protested over the alleged non-payment of their benefits since their enrolment in 2018.


The Training and Communication Officer of the unit, Nasir Ja’afar, told newsmen in Gusau, the Zamfara State capital, on Monday that the matter had already been channelled to the National Cash Transfer Office, Abuja.


Ja’afar said: “We are aware of the uproar coming from communities in Tsafe Local Government Area over non-payment of the benefits.


“I am appealing to affected beneficiaries and communities to be patient as the issue has already been channelled to the National Cash Transfer Office, Abuja.”


A total of 130,000 poor and vulnerable households were enrolled into the National Cash Transfer Programme in Zamfara State in a pilot scheme.

The pilot scheme covered Anka, Bungudu, Birnin-Magaji, Kaura-Namoda, Tsafe and Talata-Mafara local government areas.

The National Cash Transfer Programme is one of the social safety net programmes of the Federal Government.

The programme, conceived as part of the Federal Government’s larger growth and social inclusion strategies to address key social concerns, began in September 2016.

It is a component of the National Social Safety Nets Project supported by the World Bank to provide financial support for targeted poor and vulnerable households.


The Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, Peter Obi, has described as shocking and disheartening the N15 billion allocation for the construction of the residence of the Vice-President.

In a series of tweets on his X handle, said it was wrong for that amount to be thus allocated given the level of poverty in the country.

Peter Obi wrote:  “Even as I am still studying the 2024 fiscal budget as presented to the National Assembly last week, I cannot wait as I am compelled to ask : what is exactly wrong with us as a country?

“I ask this question because it is hard for me to understand some of the recent happenings in our nation, in these critical times. The recent news about a budget provision of N15 billion for the construction of a new residence for the Vice President  is both shocking and disheartening, considering the many important challenges facing our nation. Just recently in the Supplementary Budget, the sum of N2.5 billion was included for the renovation of the Vice President’s residence in Abuja, which means that he already has a residence.

“Again, during the budget presentation, I heard the sum of N3 billion was allocated for the renovation of the Vice President’s residence in Lagos. If we total all these sums, we would have budgeted the sum of N20.5 billion for the housing of the Vice President at this critical time when we are not just the world’s poverty capital, but more people are falling into poverty, with so many Nigerians not knowing where their next meal will come from. Our health facilities have collapsed, and unemployment is skyrocketing.

“I am convinced that 99.9 per cent of Nigerians can only  dream of living in the current residence of the Vice President. Several people employed in the universities are not being paid. Just to give an example, the salary of a professor in a Nigerian university is about N400,000, which without removing tax is about N5 million a year. What we have budgeted for the housing of the Vice President who is already luxuriously housed is, therefore, the annual salary of about 3000 professors! This is the finance needed to develop the much-needed human capital”.


Mr Eazi, the Nigerian singer, has alleged that comedian I Go Dye failed to show up at a concert in Ghana despite getting paid to perform at the event.


Speaking on the recent episode of Afrobeats Intelligence podcast, the singer said he hosted an award show while studying at the Kwame Nkrumah University.

Mr Eazi said due to his popularity in school, he was able to invite top entertainers like I Go Dye, Sarkodie, R2Bees, and Wande Coal.

The singer claimed that the comedian did not return the money he was paid despite failing to show up at the event.


“I did not stop at parties. Now we are doing parties, we need to do an award show. I had the first social award of my university, Swagatainment Award. That was when I booked Sarkodie, R2Beees, and Wande Coal. Wande Coal did not show up at the show. He was in town but did not show up… I did not know he did not receive his full money,” he said.

“I was like begging Sarkodie. It was like $2,500 or less. Please, even though I have not paid you in full, come on stage. He came on stage. Like he saved me by coming on stage. That is why he is more than a friend. He is my brother. I had Sarkodie, R2Bees. I Go Dye ran away with my money. I Go Dye if you are hearing this now. You took money from Kwame Nkrumah University students and never showed up.

“I remember texting him that you never pay me my money. I hope the next time I see him and say ‘bro, you still need to pay me my money’… it is no beef. It is somewhere at the back of my mind.”


The claim by Sultan Al Jaber, the president of the COP28 Climate Summit that there is “no science” that says phasing out fossil fuels is necessary to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, has alarmed climate scientists and advocates.

The future role of fossil fuels is one of the most controversial issues countries are grappling with at the COP28 climate summit. While some are pushing for a “phase-out,” others are calling for the weaker language of a “phase-down.”

Al Jaber made the remarks during the She Changes Climate panel event on November 21, which was first reported by The Guardian (UK), and the Centre for Climate Reporting, an investigative journalism organisation.

He suggested a fossil fuel phase-out would not allow sustainable development “unless you want to take the world back into caves”.

Al Jaber was asked by Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and current chair of the Elders Group, an independent group of global leaders if he would lead on phasing out fossil fuels.


He replied: “There is no science out there, or no scenario out there, that says the phase-out of fossil fuel is what’s going to achieve 1.5C.

“A phase-out of fossil fuel, in my view, is inevitable, it is essential. But we need to be real, serious and pragmatic about it.”

Scientists and campaign groups reacted with anger to Al Jaber’s remarks.

Asked to respond to Al-Jaber’s comments, John Kerry, the United States climate envoy replied, “That’s not the argument.”

“The G7 countries voted that there should be a phasing out of unmitigated fossil fuel emissions and what there is science for is keeping 1.5 degrees as your North Star,” Kerry told CNBC’s Tania Bryer at ongoing COP28 climate summit on Sunday.

“Every decision we make should be geared to say, ‘does this advance the 1.5 degrees or is it going to be more destructive and take us in the wrong direction?’”

A spokesperson for COP28 told CNBC the story regarding Al-Jaber’s comments was “just another attempt to undermine the presidency’s agenda, which has been clear and transparent and backed by tangible achievements by the COP president and his team.”

They said Al-Jaber has been “unwavering” in saying that keeping global warming to 1.5°C involves action across a number of areas and sectors. “The COP president is clear that phasing down and out of fossil fuels is inevitable and that we must keep 1.5°C within reach. We are not sure what this story was supposedly revealing. Nothing in it is new or breaking news.”

Fossil fuel production in 2030 is expected to be more than double what would be necessary to keep global warming under 1.5 degrees, a recent report from several scientific institutions, including the UN Environment Programme, found. That report used scenarios laid out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the International Energy Agency (IEA) to reach its conclusion.

“If the IPCC and IEA do not count as science then I don’t know what does,” said Ploy Achakulwisut, a climate researcher at the Stockholm Environment Institute and one of the authors of the report. She told CNN it concluded “that all fossil fuels have to be phased out especially if carbon dioxide removal and carbon capture and storage measures fail to scale.”


Romain Ioualalen, global policy lead at non-profit Oil Change International, said in a statement Al Jaber’s statements during the panel discussion were “alarming,” “science-denying” and “raise deep concerns about the Presidency’s capacity to lead the UN climate talks.”

Joeri Rogelj, a climate professor at Imperial College London, said he strongly recommended Al Jaber revisit the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

“That report, approved unanimously by 195 countries including the UAE, shows a variety of ways to limit warming to 1.5°C — all of which indicate a de facto phase-out of fossil fuels in the first half of the century. Will that take the world back to the caves? Not,” he said in a statement.

Mohamed Adow, director of climate think tank Power Shift Africa, said Al Jaber’s remarks were a “wake-up call” to the world and COP28 negotiators. “They are not going to get any help from the COP Presidency in delivering a strong outcome on a fossil fuel phase-out,” he said in a statement.

Al Jaber’s presidency of the COP28 summit has been controversial. The Emirati businessman is the UAE’s climate envoy and chairs the board of directors of its renewables company, but he also heads the state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
