LG Chairman Escapes Assassination, Special Adviser Killed



The Administrator of Oke­hi Local Government Area of Kogi State, Ab­dulraheem Ohiare, over the weekend escaped assassination following hoodlums attacks on his resi­dence in Nagazi.
This is coming barely two weeks after a similar attempt was made on the life of Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West district also of Kogi State.
But two people said to be his close associates were not as lucky as they were killed by the yet to be identified gunmen.
According to the adminis­trator, the gunmen invaded his residence at about 2:30 am and started shooting sporadically, even as they made attempt to scale the fence.
He added that the security operatives attached to him were at alert and repelled the attack, preventing the attackers from gaining asses to his residence.
He, however, confirmed that some hoodlums had earlier on Friday evening attacked the res­idences of two people that were close to him in Okene and shot them dead.
According to him, some packs of bullets suspected to be for AK-47 and pump ac­tion were recovered around his house, apparently abandoned by the attackers.
The attack on the people said to have happened at about 8 pm was believed to be a prelude to the one carried out on the ad­ministrator.
One of the two persons killed is the Special Adviser to the administrator on Legal matters.
The Commissioner of police, Kogi State command, Wilson Inalegwu, was said to have vis­ited the scenes of the attack with the aim of unravelling the issues surrounding the attack.
He was said to have directed a full-scale investigation into the attack, while security was also ordered to be beefed up in the community.

Sultan of Sokoto North

The Sultan, who stated this at the fourth quarterly meeting of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council in Abuja, said bandits were fast overrunning the North as residents slept with their eyes open.

While describing the North as the worst place to live, he said that bandits had become daring.

He said they moved from house to house, village to village, market to market, with AK-47 rifles openly, purchasing foodstuffs and other items and even collecting change without any challenge from the security agencies.

The foremost traditional ruler stated that the security system in the North had completely collapsed.

He said, “Security situation in Northern Nigeria has assumed a worrisome situation. Few weeks ago, over 76 persons were killed in a community in Sokoto in a day. I was there with the governor to commiserate with the affected community.

“Unfortunately, you don’t hear these stories in the media because it’s in the North. We have accepted the fact that the North does not have strong media to report the atrocities of these bandits.

“People think North is safe but that assumption is not true. In fact, it’s the worst place to be in this country because bandits go around in the villages, households and markets with their AK 47 and nobody is challenging them.

“They stop at the market, buy things, pay and collect change, with their weapons openly displayed. These are facts, I know because I am at the centre of it.

“I am not only a traditional ruler, I am also a religious leader. So, I am in a better place to tell the story. I can speak for the North in this regard because I am fully aware of the security challenges there. We have to sincerely and seriously find solutions to the problem, otherwise, we will find ourselves soon, in a situation where we would lose sleep because of insecurity.
