Wrath of God Will Descend on Boko Haram, Says FG

Wrath of God Will Descend on Boko Haram, Says FG

Federal government Saturday said the wrath of God will fall heavily on terror group, Boko Haram for killing and maiming innocent Nigerians.

Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Abdul-Jelili Adesiyan, dropped the hint, while reacting to the second bomb blast that occurred at Nyanya, a surburb of Abuja last Thursday.

In a statement by media aide to the minister, Wale Akinola, the minister said the bomb blast was unfortunate, sad, callous, disheartening and unGodly.

He called on the insurgents to stop using God's name in killings, noting his disdain for blood letting.

“People should stop killing others in the name of God because Allah does not permit killing. Neither does He encourage blood letting as being canvassed by the Boko Haram agents.

"Whoever kills fellow human being will have the wrath of God as He frowns on unjust shedding of innocent blood,” he said.

Breaking News:  FG Orders Shutdown of Ministries and Public Schools in Abuja for World Economic Forum

Written by Alaba Johnson.

Four Different Battalions Of the Nigerian Army To Storm Sambisa Forest To Rescue Abducted Girls

FOUR different battalions, a little more that a Brigade of the Nigerian Army, have been moved to and are currently taking

positions in and around all the access routes into and outside Sambisa forest in Borno State, where the recently abducted schoolgirls have been confirmed to be holed up with their captors.

Also, fighter jets of the Nigerian Air Force, as well as police surveillance helicopters had been mobilised and were waiting for the command to begin the joint security operations for rescue efforts of the girls.

Owing to the nature of the operation which will result in soldiers and security agencies encountering booby traps, land mines, ambush and other unknown traps from the side of the terrorists, it was gathered that Air Force fighter aircraft, helicopter gunships and police surveillance helicopters would carry out round the clock missions, to ensure its success.

Written by Alaba Johnson.

FG Extends National Confab By Six Weeks

The Federal Government has extended the duration of the National Conference by six weeks.

Under the new arrangement, the conference will now end on July 31 instead of the earlier June 19 when the discussion had been programmed to last.

Before the extension, some delegates had advocated that the three-month period allotted was not enough.

But it was not clear whether additional budgetary allocation would be made in order to finance the extension.

A new work plan released on Wednesday in Abuja by the leadership of the conference said that the confab had been adjusted following inputs from its leadership. Add a comment
