PRESS STATEMENT 17TH October, 2020

The dastardly murder of the District Head of Mazaki, in Atyap Chiefdom, Zangon Kataf LGA, Mr Haruna Kuye and his teenage son, Destiny Kuye stands totally condemned.
It is an abhorable crime which aim is cause communal strife, and this our people must resist.
It was a well-planned murder by evil men who sneaked into the village and headed for his home and unleashed terror. The heartless killers also attacked his wife and daughter but
they survived with injuries.
The late District head was a man of peace who cared for the wellbeing of his constituency both natives and non-natives.
We hereby send our sincere condolence to his family, Atyap Chiefdom and the entire Southern Kaduna family over this great lose.
We are glad that Kaduna state government has issued a statement condemning the act and we hope that the killers would be found and be brought to book. We also encourage the Kaduna State government to keep giving security updates on the state. No citizen of Kaduna state should
be killed by brigands and not documented for the public and posterity.
We also want to note with sadness the murder of Albarka Adu’a, who was killed by gunmen last Sunday during a kidnap raid at Maraban Kajuru, Kajuru LGA. Adu’a was the former Village Head of Kyemara.
SOKAPU is saddened by the spiraling wave of kidnapping and killings in the state. In Giwa and Igabi LGAs, 13 persons were killed between last Sunday and Monday in cold blood by outlaws who seemed to be making a mockery of the state.
We send our sympathy to all affected families
and pray that justice shall come their way sooner or later.
At this point, we still calling on Kaduna state government and the Federal Government to come to the assistance of the thousands of IDPs in Southern Kaduna. Most of them are living under sub-human conditions, especially
children, women, the old and infirmed. In Kallah, Rimau and Geffe all in Kallah ward, Kajuru LGA, thousands of Adara IDPs are in dire need of food and medical services.
The story is the same with Gbagyi of Chikun, who have fled their homes after Fulani militia
have unleashed terror on them and occupied the communities. They can be found in the thousands in Unguwan Bijeh, Buyaya, Goning Gora, Unguwan Madaki and many Kaduna suburbs south of river kaduna.
No citizens deserve to be so neglected and
abandoned by its government after it has failed in its cardinal responsibility of securing their lives and property.
We also call on the international community, NGOs and all men and women of conscience to show interest on these unfortunate citizens.

There is something fundamentally wrong with @femigbaja's explanation on the shooting and killing of the Newspaper vendor, whose death was caused by the security operatives attached to him.

According to the Speaker, the gun was fired 'in the air' to disperse excited crowd.
Generally, a bullet, fired straight up at the maximum speed into the air, will never leave the lowest layer of Earth’s atmosphere. A combination of gravity and air resistance will slow it down until it reaches a maximum height, whereupon it will fall back down to Earth’s surface.
When it does, however, its landing location will be wildly unpredictable owing to the effects of wind and air. It will be traveling much slower than when it was first fired, as its terminal velocity (due to air resistance) is far lower than the initial muzzle speed.

During protests in Osogbo, I met the girl with the phone. She kept her book in my bag during the protests. She was the one asking the protesters to be as peaceful as possible. She was the calmest woman in that protest. Image
The person with the placard was so energetic while peaceful. After leading gyration from Technical area to Olaiya, she offered me water. I was touched. These are the souls that Oyetola, Osun State class captain has accused of attempted assassination. Image
Suliyat Tajudeen, 20, is the with the phone while Ayomide Abdulazeez, 20, is the one with the placard. These girls alongside Hormohwummy Ewatee Aworanti Salvation Grace and others were the souls of that protest that had Mandate as its face.

People who post screenshots and/or chats of how their inbox were invaded (by the opposite sex) for whatsoever reason(s), are childish and senseless. I strongly believe they do so for clout: retweets, likes and replies.

Maturity should not be used as a licence to be stupid.
Whatever informs that genre of stupidity, some things are meant to remain private.

Learn to minimise what you share here.

Do not reduce Twitter to a dirty linen washing hub. Even if the narrative is less offensive, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF.
If the person that once acted and looked like King Solomon and Cleopatra, decides to behave Agbalumo, you simply walk away - noiselessly.

You don't need to host a festival of unsolicited violence on Twitter. Trust me, there will always be roaming idiots, fueling from the back.

There is a limit to which I can allow you spew rubbish on my timeline. A certain worthless individual, poor knowledge of the law, with an over bloated ego, invaded one of my tweets, dishing out unrelated principles of law, unfounded rules of law, as justification for the
attempted demolition Lobito Crescent, Wuse, Abuja. He cited all manner of authorities. None of them applied to the fact in issue.

He went further to litter my timeline with a tweet from FCDAFCT. Sadly, the excuse given for the attempted demolition is not justified by law.
More painful is the fact is that, the whole reply from morning by that agent and sympathiser of Agbalumo were based on speculation of his own imagination. I tried to endure him since morning. I also accommodated his brazen idiocy.

However, there is a limit to which I can take.

Contrary to the Agbalumo link you have been brandishing, dear Professor of Law, Kindly note that:

1 You can hear people in the background screaming that THEY WERE NOT ISSUED ANY NOTICE WHATSOEVER.

2 As a professor of law, YOU WOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT no law SUPPORTS the demolition
Of a building with human beings in it. Let me not also mention that their goods worth millions of naira is also in it.

3. According to your Agbalumo link, the owner of the building flouted the FCDA Housing scheme. When he converted what was designed for 'car park' to a shop.
4. When it comes to Housing scheme in Abuja and the entire Federation, where does the Buck stop? Can you say that FCT and Agbalumo nonsense again?

5. Mind you, you are dealing with people's source of livelihood, hence the need for governance to have human face.
