I was standing in front of my shop when I saw him running for his dear life, being chased by those youth,” a trader at the market said. “They nearly lynched him, because those youth almost overpowered police security near him.”

The musician was rescued by security operatives who fired gunshots and tear-gas to disperse the crowd. The security operatives later returned to remove Charly Boy’s vehicles from the market, using tear-gas to disperse the protesters who tried to stop them.

BENUE STATE NOT PART OF BIAFRA; WE ARE KNOWN FOR UNITY NOT DISINTEGRATION:

Published by:

Governor Ortom of Benue State.

It has come to the attention of the Benue State government that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu made some reckless and misleading comments about the good people of Benue State. In the Vanguard Newspaper of July 20, 2017, the IPOB leader claimed that the Federal Governmentoffered him Biafra comprising the 5 South Eastern States when he was in prison but he rejected the offer along with an oil block and a mansion in Dubai all in a bid to induce him to abandon his secessionist movement.

He was reported to have made the wild and unsubstantiated allegation while playing host to a coalition of Igbo Civil Society Coalition led by Prof. Obasi Igwe who paid him a solidarity visit recently at his Umuahia home. Kanu claimed that he turned down the offer as he wanted Benue and a South-South State included in Biafra.

We completely and strongly reject his mischievous claim that Benue is part of Biafra. Benue State is not part of any secessionist bid to dismember our great country Nigeria.

The Benue State government and its people are committed to the unity, peace and progress of Nigeria under the purposeful leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari and Acting President Yemi Osinbajo. The administration of Samuel Ortom would never subscribe to any ulterior and ill-advised agitation to undermine the unity and security of our country. There are lawful laid down procedures for people, groups or any legally recognized organisation to advance their interests and draw attention to their demands in a peaceful manner.  Continue reading
