The Fulanis In Yorubaland By Ozodinukwe Okenwa

The Executive Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, had stirred the hornet’s nest penultimate week when he issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Fulanis living as herders inside the forests and settlements in the state to vacate their abodes and leave the state. Since he gave out this quit notice reactions, positive and negative, had trailed the surprising move at mass eviction of an ethnic group living and eking out a living in areas far away from their ancestral homeland. The Federal Government, notorious for gaffe, had reacted controversially to…

Babafemi Ojudu: Tinubu’s Lapdog By Bayo Oluwasanmi

Senator Babafemi Ojudu in an article on Monday described Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho as a political thug. By now, we are all familiar with the manufactured narrative advertised in the piece by Ojudu to smear Igboho. I need not waste time going into details of Ojudu’s rant. Igboho has since denied the allegation.  In an attempt to destroy Igboho, Ojudu demolished himself. In the piece, Ojudu revealed so much: that (1) He has been involved in election rigging by molesting, harassing, intimidating, and killing of political opponents. (2) He has…

Yahaya Bello: Five Years In Office, Five Years Of Humanitarian Disaster And Waste In Kogi State By Usman Okai Austin

The office anniversary as the world knows usually showcases projects and the economic improvement one has made during one’s time in office. This has been the trend in Nigerian political cum-adminstrative landscape, but the case appears different in Kogi State as Yahaya Bello aggressively reduced and continues to reduce every sector of the State to almost nothing, with little or no regard for the rule of Law. The divine providence that ushered in the current Governor of Kogi State should ordinarily be a guide to achieving great heights during his…

The Return Of Akeredolu By Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, SAN

I read the story with some disbelief, praying that it will soon be rebutted and denied as one of those social media stunts. But alas! The police authorities in Ondo State later confirmed that Chief Olu Falae was indeed attacked in his farm around Oba Ile area of Akure, by suspected herdsmen. How could this happen, with such bravado, for the herders to set parts of the farm on fire, destroy the crops and hope to get away untouched? Not long thereafter, the tension was stoked again with the cold-blooded…

Governors Of South-West Are Feckless, Spineless Cowards By Bayo Oluwasanmi

After the Igangan killings by Fulani herdsmen savages, Governors of South-West met yesterday with security chiefs and the leadership of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria. The meeting took place in Akure, Ondo State capital. The chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State assured Fulani herdsmen terrorists that “This is your home. You’ve lived here, married and done business with us. Nobody is going anywhere.” He said no one gave the Fulani terrorists eviction order to leave Yoruba land. Until Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho chased…

Buhari Too Should Go Now! By Kunle Wizeman Ajayi

After committing several crimes against humanity through LekkiMassacre, Oyigbo Massacre, Shiites killings, and the recent Orlu murders; General Buratai and his cohorts serving President Buhari and the APC and their cruel wars just resigned.  It is not amazing as the Service Chiefs are supposed to be arrested immediately for all these crimes. Major Adeniyi and other soldiers who have been wrongly prosecuted for saying the hard truths should be released unconditionally!  But in all of these, President Buhari should resign too! He has failed in all duties as president especially…

Sunday Igboho And The Yoruba Nation By Reuben Abati

In the past week, in the South Western part of Nigeria, we have been treated to stories of conflicts in Ondo and Oyo States between herdsmen, identified as Fulani, and the Yoruba owners of indigenous communities. In Ondo state, the issue at stake is the conversion of the state’s forest reserves into a criminal space by herdsmen who violate the integrity of the reserves and a hide-out for kidnaping, extortion and killings. Governor Rotimi Akeredolu affirming his powers as the Chief Security Officer of the state gave a seven-day ultimatum…

Abuja Under Siege By Bandits, But DSS, Army After Agitators In South-East, By Fredrick Nwabufo

Abuja is under siege. Terror lives and breathes here. Citizens are kidnapped every day from their homes but sadly, some of these tragedies escape outrage and alarm. There is a false sense of security in the federal capital territory (FCT) – the flawed assumption of safety – which has enabled the atrocities of bandits in the nation’s capital to persist without hysteria. Security agencies – all with headquarters in Abuja – get away with non-performance as regards the FCT largely because of this false sense of security by residents. No…

Buhari’s War Of Genocide Against Yorubas Is Catalyst For Oduduwa Nation By Bayo Oluwasanmi

Nigerians never envisaged a future Hitler until General Muhammadu Buhari became president. Buhari has jailed hundreds of prisoners of conscience solely for peacefully exercising their right to freedom of expression, association, and assembly in a campaign of ruthless suppression on human rights. Buhari employs federal security apparatus controlled by Fulanis to cow Nigerians. Buhari is fast moving Nigeria from a flawed democracy into a war of genocide against Yorubas. Since he came to power, he has vigorously, relentlessly, ruthlessly, and systematically pursued the murder of Yorubas. He has caused serious…

Revolution Not War By Adeyeye Olorunfemi

Let me start by asking students of history what year Ojukwu died. 2011 right? 44 years from the beginning of the war. Good.  Yakubu Gowon is still alive. But over 3 million people who never travelled to Aburi to sign any accord died during the pogrom as far back as 1967. Just cause or not, the elite are mostly protected during wars while the masses are led to slaughter. First point made.  I agree that there is war already. The Nigerian State is fighting the masses through all means including…
