By Idoko Ainoko The shoe is currently on the other foot for separatist NGO, International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety), which had neglected to heed the Biblical warning in Proverbs 30.33 (NIV) that said, “For as churning cream produces butter, and as twisting the nose produces blood, so stirring up anger produces strife.” Whatever situation Intersociety alleges now is the result of cause and effect, one it is actively responsible for creating. In this regard, Intersociety is playing the ostrich in its unfounded accusation that the…

The Concerned Citizens Forum frowned at a petition written by the Concerned Nigerians Group led by Deji Adeyanju to the International Criminal Court (ICC) calling for the arrest and prosecution of the immediate past Chief of Army Staf, Lt. Gen. Tukur Bruatai. CCF says it finds such posturing very worrisome and lacking in any form of objectivity as the issues canvassed by the Deji Adeyanju led group remains a figment of the imagination. The group in a statement by its president, Comrade John Alli, advised Deji Adeyanju and “his co-travellers…

ICC: Group accuses Iranian-backed terrorists, IMN of bankrolling frivolous petitions against former Chief of Army Staff, Buratai

Tukur Buratai.  The Concerned Citizens and Stakeholders (CCS) revealed that the call by Deji Adeyanju and his cohorts at Amnesty International for the International Criminal Court (ICC) to prosecute Buratai is another phase of their destabilization agenda.  The group, which disclosed this at a press conference on Friday in Lagos, said it is “laughable” to allege that the former COAS massacred members of…

Lt. Gen. Buratai : As an icon bows out of Military Service

By Toby Prince “Veni, vidi, vici, which means “I came, I saw, I conquered”- William Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar”. The popularized dramatic character, known to us as Julius Caesar was a reconfigured and fictionalized personality in many of the plays of English outstandingly gifted playwright, William Shakespeare. Caesar lived in actual life and was indeed, a warrior of his times; an unbending conventional warfare mystique or enigma, a dozen centuries ago in Greek society. I understand, through historical sources the near accurate accounts of a Greek historian, Appian of Alexandria, who…

Gov Zulum’s Victory Bell at Biu

By Charles Ibekwe Since the onset of the Boko Haram insurgency in North-East, Nigeria in 2009, Nigeria has witnessed a period classified as one of the most trying in its history. I would say that the Boko Haram insurgency was underestimated. Consequently, conventional tactics were deployed in an asymmetric war. And the outcome of such military deployment remains a topic for another day. However, the crux of this piece is to systematically analyze the security situation in present-day North-East Nigeria and the factors that have proved to be the game-changer…
