It was gathered yesterday that suspected Boko Haram members invaded the residence of Chief Malachy Agbazue, the Eze Igbo in the Mubi area in Adamawa State with the intention of killing everybody there, but were overpowered by soldiers detailed to guard the house.

At least 15 Igbos residing in the area have been killed by the dreaded sect, thirteen from Adazi and two from Agulu, both of Anaocha LGA, Anambra state, the incident which lead to security being beefed up in the area.

The Awka branch of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) made a statement through its chairman condemning the continued killings of Igbos in the North. He called on governors of South East states to send vehicles to evacuate their people in the north.

An excerpt of the statement read: “The Nigerian Bar Association, Awka branch takes exception to and decry in particular the gruesome murder of indigenes of Adazi community in Anaocha local government area of Anambra State by Boko Haram in Mubi, Adamawa state; “We urge the government of Anambra State to take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of lives and property of all Anambrarians living in the North; “We urge Anambra State government to quickly deploy enough luxury buses or vehicles to Northern part of Nigeria to convey home Anambrarians currently trapped in some of the Northern states in the country; and “that members of Nigeria Bar Association, Awka Branch are in full support of the recent calls for convening of Sovereign National Conference to discuss the entity called Nigeria.

    It is obvious that this whole Boko Haram killings is political and are being sponsored by wealthy and meaningful Islamic/Muslems from the Nation. The earlier the federal government start boosting up security as to apprehend those behind the masterminding of these killings,I see Nigeria getting into another civil war.

    Boko haram or what they are called should be reminded that u dont touch a lion’s tail, dead or alife. Whenever the ibos decide fighting back, the border of chad and cameroun will not hide you all.

    BOKO HARAM AND THE KILLING OF THE IGBOS

    Osis nuru na aga egbu ya kwuru, mmadu anaghi anu na aga egbu ya kwuru ka ma oghaba ka ukwu ya ha.
    Boko Haram whether we like it or not though a religious sect, is political instrument used by politicians in the high places to destroy our democracy for their politically motivated selfish interest.
    As for the Igbos/ Christians in the north, you were given 3 good days to go out of the North, Why do you wait to see what will happen? In all looks and crannies of the North and South Igbos build mansions and set up business empires at the detriment of the East. Who do you expect to decelop the Eastern Nigeria for you? The Hausas or of course the Yorubas? REMEMBER WHAT LATE IKEM TOLD YOU ON THE DAY HE CAME TO COMMISSION ALABA MARKET. Atooro omata omata atooro ofeke efeyi isi n’ohia. UDO DIRI NDI IGBO GBURU GBURU

    All said & done…..amongst all of you altering statements that are insultive none of you can deer to stand up like Comrade Ojukwu did., bcos you are all dishonest people. Comrade Ojukwu was not dishonest, but what ever course one is fighting for it should be done through the right channel.
    As for the B.H by Gods grace they will be exposed and expunged. Though we can not wait for that forever. Nigeria government must rise up to the challenge, bcos this is an irresponsible act by the government.

Oke

Oke

Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
