Community youths blocks the entrance to Agip oil company in Port-Harcourt.

Some youth of Mgboshimini community in Obio-Akpor LGA of Rivers state have barricaded the entrance leading to Agip company in the city of Port-Harcourt.

Read the report of any eye witness, I just got into PH this afternoon from Awka, and decided to pay a surprise visit to Agip company to see a personal friend. But unfortunately some youths barricaded the entire entrance to the company with palm fronds.

This caused heavy traffic in and around Agip road. I placed a call to my friend, he said they are equally trapped inside as they cannot even come outside.

So as it stands now, no one goes into Agip company and no one is allowed to drive out from the company.

Just this afternoon, she was flogged like an animal again just because she came back at 3p.m when school was meant to dismiss at 2p.m. That was her offence... Not being back at 2p.m!

This is happening at New Haven Enugwu and my source who went to that compound took the photo shots and wants to remain anonymous.

I've told her to get me the name of the man and his wife. When I get it, I'll update it here.

Catholic priest took to Facebook to mourn his colleague that was killed in Benue Fulani herdsmen attack.

Catholic priest Tomtile Solomon has taken to his Facebook page to mourn one of the priest that was recently killed by Fulani herdsmen in an early morning attack in Benue state.


I am crying not because you are dead; because I know you have died for a just cause and safe in God's bosom. But am crying because I supported what is going on with us now in 2015.

Fr Joe Gor, we were together last Thursday/Friday @ the Wake/Burial of Mama Juliana Nyinya. In your usual funny ways I laughed so hard even though I was so exhausted. You disturbed me not to sleep that night, you gisted us a lot and even told us how the Fulanis have been grazing around your parish. How you people were living in fear. You also told us that night that you will be going to AKURE for a program after the burial. The next day as I was about to leave, you told me "Fr Tomtile, drive carefully to your parish. Let the Fulanis not kill you on the way" and bid me bye bye. Little did I know the spirit was telling you that you will be killed by the Fulanis.

I could see the smile of a loving brother when you watched me zoomed off. Little did I know it was this kind of bye bye you were bidding me. May God continue to to rest you and those who were killed with you.

Xenophobic attack! South Africans mob kill and burn a Nigerian man.

Clement Ebuka Nwosu has been burnt alive by a mob in the latest xenophobia attack in South Africa.

The Publicity Secretary of the Nigeria Union in South Africa, Habib Miller, said the victim, a native of Enugwu-ukwu Njikoka in Anambra and an upholsterer in South Africa, was attacked and killed by a mob in Rustenburg, North West Province. .

Miller said the victim was murdered in cold blood over his accent and habit, which the mobsters supposedly found offensive. “The mob descended on him like a common criminal with all sorts of dangerous weapons in the presence of South African police officers.

Eyewitnesses say the victim beckoned for help from the police to intervene and help him, but they turned a blind eye. When Ebuka could no longer persevere, he ran for safety; the mob chased and caught him, poured petrol on him and set him ablaze,” he said. He later died at Job Shimankane Hospital.

I am pained by this dastardly act nothing because he is my brother but the way and manner he was killed with tacit support from the South African police. This is the area i am most disappointed in.

This is one death too many and it's about time the Nigerian government do the needful. You cannot continue to kill Nigerians like rats without any official inquest and without any attempt by the state to weigh in. South African policecannot be complicit in the killing of our people over there and here in Nigeria, our own police and security agencies are deployed to protect them and their interests. No serious government can tolerate what South Africa has done to Nigerians in recent years. Not all Nigerians in South Africa are criminals. Even criminals are tried and convicted through the judicial system.

Ebuka, may your gentle soul rest in peace and may the good lord console your mother.. Amen

One killed, many injured as masquerades invades church during service in Anambra.

At least one person died on Friday while over 22 others sustained various degrees of injury when masquerades in their numbers invaded the Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry, Uke, Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State. 

The masquerades, who were said to be celebrating a festival known as Uzo Iyi, invaded the worship ground, beating up members and also attempting to whisk away the spiritual director of the centre, Rev Fr Emmanuel Obimma.

According to reports, three of the masquerade members were arrested by operatives of SARS upon complaint from the church that they were extorting worshippers coming to the church. The leadership of the church called in the SARS operatives to help their internal security to protect worshipers, but upon arriving, the operatives arrested three masquerades who were involved in the extortion, but their colleagues attempted to stop them from taking the arrested masquerades away, prompting SARS operatives to shoot sporadically into the air before whisking the masquarades away. 

Personal Assistant to Fr Obimma, Francis Okoye, who spoke to journalists, said a priest, Rev Father Henry Nnajiofor, a seminarian and 28 others were injured during the attack on the worshippers.  It was however gathered from some worshipers that an unidentified person was feared dead during a stampede caused by the attack. 

Okoye said: “The normal masquerade activities in Uke, to the best of my knowledge, ends by 6pm but as at 8pm on Friday, the masquerades were still parading at the entrance route of Uke Adoration ground, extorting money from the our members and robbing others on the guise of masquerade festival.

“As at 8:30 pm, we started receiving information that group of masquerades were attacking our members, inflicting bodily injuries on them as a result of severe flogging. They flogged some of them, stabbed some with their weapons including machete, while others were robbed of their mobile phones and other valuables.  “We quickly contacted the SARS office to assist our Adoration security that could not handle the situation at that point in time. When SARS arrived in an hour later, they arrested two masquerades but on their way back, the youths blocked the road and insisted that the masquerades must be released. That was when SARS officials fired shots on the air to disperse them.  “When SARS left, they regrouped again and this time came in their numbers to the Adoration premises, beating everybody including the elderly, the sick and pregnant women. Our Adoration youths, in defence, pursued them and arrested one other masquerade who stayed in the Adoration ground with us until this morning when we handed him over the official of the Nigerian Army that came for our rescue,” he narrated.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Anambra State, ASP Nkiru Nwode confirmed the incident but denied that the masquerades also attacked the police officers from SARS.  She said the command arrested three of the suspects and is currently investigating the cause of the incident
