It was gathered that the gunmen stormed the Dalwa-Msauba village in the early hours of Saturday, embarking on a shooting spree, setting almost all village buildings and several behivles ablaze.

According to members of the vigilante group, the so-called Civilian JTF, after they learnt of the attack, they drove to the area and found the entire village on fire, with dead bodies scattered on the ground.

Local police and military have not yet confirmed the attack. However, security sources in Maiduguri, the state capital, said they had been briefed on the attack.

Dalwa-Masuba is a farming community 40km away from Damboa town and about 80km south-west of Maiduguri.

In a related development, Nigerian Army soldiers engaged in a fierce two-hour shooutout with the Boko Haram insurgents who attempted to take over the Damaturu-Benishek-Maiduguri road. The Defence Headquarters have immediately deployed soldiers to the area to ensure safety of Nigerians.

According to a reliable military source who spoke to The Nation, the military had foiled the insurgents’ plan to block access to Yobe State from Maiduguri. The source said the insurgents may have planned to relocate, as, because the military have restricted them to the Sambisa forest area and some towns bordering with Cameroon, they are looking for safer places to operate.

Six soldiers were wounded in the course of the attack.

Benishek was the scene of a massacre by Boko Haram in 2013. Over 100 residents were killed in that attack.

Self-acclaimed Port Harcourt First Son, Duncan Mighty is currently trending on social media for the wrong reasons.

A water tank driver, Okabam John has accused singer, Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

It was gathered that the incident reportedly happened on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at about 9:40am when the driver was on duty.

Narrating his ordeal to some Civil Rights Activists on Tuesday November 24, after he was allegedly discharged from the hospital, John, a native of Elele Town in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state and an employee of Julius Berger Nigeria Limited, claimed that the musician struck him on the head with a traditional staff made of elephant tusk.

According to the driver, while on duty a private car was parked close to his water filling spot. He tried notifying the driver who refused to wind down. He reportedly bent his head to talk to the driver only to discover it was Duncan Mighty.

John said that before he could speak, the singer allegedly struck his head using a traditional staff. He said the second strike was blocked with his hand. He claimed that he could not see when the singer drove off as his eyes were covered with blood.

Confirming the incident on Tuesday, one Ndubueze Obodowhuo, accused Duncan Mighty of using his VIP status to intimidate his people. He also shared a ‘medical report’ stating that John was treated for “shoulder dislocation and scalp laceration.”

Mr John is now calling on his employer, the management of Julius Berger, Security Agencies and Human Rights Organisations to help him get justice. His post below:

“This is Mr. OKABAM JOHN a native of Elele town in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers State, he’s currently employed by JULIUS BERGER NIG.PLC in Port Harcourt and his service engagement is within Judges quarters elelenwo-street, GRA Port Harcourt.

“According to Mr. OKABAM JOHN a Water-tank driver with Julius Berger, Tanker number – B8751, On Saturday 21st of November 2020 at about 9:40am while he was on duty. A private car was parked close to his water filling spot, he tried notifying the driver who refused to wine down, he bent his head to talk with the driver surprisingly, it was Duncan mighty.

“Before he could explain, his head was struck by Duncan mighty using a traditional staff(Elephant tusk), the second strike was blocked with his hand. He(Okabam John) didn’t see how the artist drove off because, blood covered his eyes at that moment.

“Mr. Okabam John narrated this incident after being discharged from the hospital. Duncan doesn’t show up when he’s publicly needed, rather he uses his VIP influence to undo his people. Celebrities should be celebrated by their positivity, their influence shouldn’t pose danger to the society rather it should serve as liberation to the people.

“Mr. OKABAM JOHN is calling on the management of Julius Berger, Security Agents and Human Rights Organisations for justice to be done in his case, to avoid a re-occurance.”
