REVEALED: How 2015 Battle For Soul Of Nasarawa State Led To Police, Other Killings

Published

on

NasarawaFresh facts have emerged that intense power-play and battle for the soul of Nasarawa State between Governor Tanko Al-Makura and the Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, was the motivating force behind the killings, counter-killings and upsurge of violence in the state of recent.

Information Nigeria gathered that the Ombatse militia group which killed scores of security agents last week during an ambush is the front for the majority Nassarawa Eggon people who are more than ever before determined on producing the next governor of the state.

The Eggons are said to be consolidating their hold on the majority through the Ombatse group ahead of 2015, just as those opposed to their aspiration and sympathetic to the cause of Al-Makura are reportedly plotting to weaken and destroy the group before the next elections.

It would be recalled that Ombatse was proscribed in the state after its shrine located at Alogani village was raided in late 2012 by the police; a move that ended peacefully and was proceeded by peaceful demonstrations by Eggon people across the state.

It was gathered that the state governor was then barred from visiting the shrine.

Following last year’s raid, it was learnt that the pro-Al-Makura/Muslim group and pro-Ombatse group stepped up their schemes with the Ombatse group pushing for the candidature of their son, Maku, as a replacement for the incumbent governor.

    This is a nice discovery! Violence is with ‘do or die politicians’ like GEJ and his merciless boys like Maku who owns and sponsor Ombatse in the same way GEJ encourages, supports and finances Dokubo Asararre.

    d day d nassarawa killins was anounced i suspected its power play nd for d governor to run to abuja to make complaint den hes involved directly or indirectly. Thou dis caused me d life of my precious friend nd ex colleague an ss officer my concern is why our security outfits will not do proper investigatns before deployin their men many of these killins can be avoided if they are objective nd not sentimental. Im subject to correction but i tink proper strategic nd serious tactical training nd retrainin is urgently needed for all our security guys. Nasarawa was a suicide mission i gues they all should b wise by now nd do their job independent of dis selfish politicians nd save their loved ones eternal pains

    I’m Sorry, Ur report is misleading, the gov is fighting a course that only him and this advisers know. No one is after him, pls as a reporter and a journalist, ask the right questions and demand for answers not Just listening to what someone would say. He is misleading the security to accomplish his agender, shouting will not help tell the truth because it most come out one day. Don’t forget it takes nine lies to cover one. setting people against themselves and now securitymen against people, only the guilty runs when no one is after him. God bless nasarawa state, rest in peace the gallant and patriotic ones.

“The horrors that have been unfolding in our country have left me filled with sadness. I deeply commiserate with those who have lost their loved ones and as a father, I share the sentiment of my three daughters who protested in Lagos and London. As a young boy of 16, I participated in the ‘Ali Must Go Protest’ of 1978, so I understand the determination of our youths who rightly want our country to be better. We must all do our part to make Nigeria great! I will continue to do my own quota in providing for those who are most in need of support in our country in these tough times .…F.Ote💲”

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!”
