APC Kaduna secretariat demolition is condemnable, says Acting chairman
Demolition of APC Kaduna Secretariat: The All Progressive Congress, APC, Kaduna State has condemned in strong terms the demolition of the party office by the Governor Nasir El-Rufai-led government.

Addressing newsmen in Kaduna, Yahaya I. Shinko, the Director Administration of the party who represented the acting chairman of the party in the state, Alhaji SI Danladi Wada said, “The reason advanced by the government in the statement issued by the Director General Kaduna Geographical information Service that the demolition was necessary as a result of default by the owner of the property, Distinguished Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi to pay ground rate for a period of 8 years, is untenable before the law.

“It is no longer news that today 20th February, 2018 at around 4am, the governor accompanied by heavily armed soldiers believed to be from 1 Division Nigerian Army Stormed the secretariat and carried out the dastardly act.

“The briefing is predicted on the EL Rufai led state Government demolition of the APC Kaduna State Secretariat at No. 11B, Sambo Road, Kaduna following his suspension from the party for a period of six months.”

The party commended the Kaduna State Commissioner of Police “for refusing to compromise to allow his officers and men to be used as political tools in the hands of the governor to silence oppositions in the state.”

It urged the Chief of Army Staff “to relieve the GOC 1 Division for meddling into partisan politics by allowing his men to give cover to the Governor with trucks numbering over 20 fully loaded with Military personnel and carried out the shameless act, thereby bringing the Military to disrepute.”

The party called on all members to be law abiding and remain calm in the midst of provocation by the Governor and his aides, as they have taken appropriate steps to seek redress in court of law.

The party noted that, “The offence of the Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi, his teeming supporters and all other members of the APC with us in this secretariat is none but for aligning ourselves with the position of the National Headquarters and Leadership of the party to the effect that S. I Danladi Wada is the recognized Deputy Chairman of the APC in Kaduna State and stands as the Acting Chairman until a substantive Chairman emerges at the next State Congress of the Party.”

Man, pregnant wife, brother die after eating poisoned food in Yenagoa

According to reports, three family members have reportedly died in their sleep in Bayelsa State after having a dinner suspected to have been poisoned.

The incident occurred in Azikoro, a suburb of Yenagoa, the state capital, on Friday.

The deceased, who hailed from Ozallah community, in the Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State, were identified as Orji Igwenta (husband), Nkem Igwenta (wife) and Obinna Ogbani, Orji’s brother.

While Orji was 35, his wife, Nkem, who was said to be pregnant, was 34. Ogbani was 10 years old.

As an indication that the family of three might have died from poison, it was learnt that a rat was found dead beside the corpses.

The report gathered that neighbours, who suspected that all was not well with the family because they had yet to be seen outside on Saturday afternoon, forced the door open.

The neighbours reportedly found their corpses on the floor.

A resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity on Monday, said neighbours reported the incident at the Azikoro Police Division.

He said, “They slept on Friday and did not wake up. The man used to drive a commercial tricycle and he woke up daily before 5am. So, we were surprised that his tricycle was still parked outside in the afternoon.

“We knocked on their door and got no feedback. So, we forced the door open and had to rush to the police station to report what we saw. The police took the landlord for questioning and they have been investigating the incident.”

An executive member of the Enugu Development Association, Bayelsa branch, Chief Chinedu Arthur-Ugwa, said the remains of the deceased had been taken to their hometown.

He said, “The death of our members came to us as a surprise because the husband and his pregnant wife died in their prime. We got in touch with their families in Enugu and they requested that their remains be brought home.

“We call on law enforcement agencies to unravel the cause of this strange death.”

The spokesman for the Bayelsa State Police Command, Asinim Butswat, confirmed the tragedy, adding that the incident was being investigated.
