Nigerian music icon, Innocent Idibia, popularly known as Tuface, on Tuesday, said he would organise a concert to raise funds for the flood victims in Benue State.

Tuface told the News Agency of Nigeria in Makudi, the state capital, that the concert would be organised in the city in December.

Yesterday he and wife, Annie Idibia visited the camp for internally displaced persons in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

The artist, a native of Benue State, arrived at 10:40 a.m. to donate gifts to thousands of families who are urgently taking shelter at the camp.

An estimated 110,000 people are believed to have been affected by the massive flood that destroyed homes of residents following days of rainfall last week.

At the camp, Tuface said:

“I really wish that I could do more for the victims. I have a concert scheduled to hold in Jos for the victims of the Boko Haram insurgency, but we will try to organise one around December to raise funds for the flood victims in Benue.

“The people I saw at the camp are hardworking Nigerians, who, due to no fault of theirs, have found themselves without shelter, food and other basic items.

“Their situation is like that of the victims of the Boko Haram insurgency, in which innocent citizens have been killed and many were left to suffer.

“As you can see, this can happen to anybody and none of the victims planned for it. So, we really need to assist them.

“I would like to use this opportunity to call on my colleagues in the music industry to come to the aid of the flood victims in Benue State.”

Tuface appealed to the federal and Benue State governments to provide drains in flood prone areas of the state to avoid future occurrence. He also pledged support for the flood victims.

More Than 120,000 People Signed Petition For The UK Government To Sanction Buhari’s Government Over Human Right Abuse

Over 120,000 people sign petition for the UK government to sanction the Nigerian Government over alleged human right abuses

As at 8:31 a.m on Wednesday October 21, 123, 222 people had signed the petition. The petition titled “Implement sanctions against the Nigerian Government and officials”.

It reads;

The Government should explore using the new sanctions regime that allows individuals and entities that violate human rights around the world to be targeted, to impose sanctions on members of the Nigerian government and police force involved in any human rights abuses by the Nigerian police.

There have been deeply concerning reports of a Nigerian police force unit (SARS) engaging in illegal activities and human rights abuses, and there have also been reports of police firing at protestors calling for SARS to be disbanded.

Deploying sanctions would provide accountability for and be a deterrent to anyone involved in violations of human rights.
