It was gathered that the deputy governor’s office was burgled four times in two months, leading to the loss of three television sets, one window-sized air conditioner among other valuables.

The office complex of the deputy governor of Adamawa State, Crowther Seth, has been burgled and valuables carted away, SaharaReporters has learnt.

It was gathered that the deputy governor’s office was burgled four times in two months, leading to the loss of three television sets, one window-sized air conditioner among other valuables.

A senior administrative officer in the office, Audu Kirya, confirmed the incident to journalists.

He said, “The office had recorded four different burglaries in two months.

“Three television sets, one window-sized air conditioner, among valuables carted by the thieves.”

He attributed the reoccurrence of the burglary to poor security measures.

Commenting on the frequent theft, Chief Press Secretary to the deputy governor, George Kushi, described it as regrettable.

He expressed concern at how an important office like that of the deputy governor could be so frequently burgled.

He said, “That means even top government confidential documents were not safe.”

Chief Security Officer to the deputy governor, Usman Daura, said members of a vigilante group have been drafted to augment the services of the police.

He said, “Among the measures include the deployment of trained vigilante group to man the office on a daily basis and to cover where police could not cover.

”Also, the security unit of the office had invited police detectives from Jimeta Division to investigate the incidences.”

The cadets were undergoing training for the young officers course, company commanders course and commanding officers course.

Officer cadets of the Nigerian Army School of Infantry (NASI) in Jaji, Kaduna State came under fire from bandits on Tuesday, military sources told Peoples Gazette.

An unconfirmed number of assailants, suspected to be cattle rustlers, ran into students of Tactics Wing, NASI, during ‘Exercise Wazobia’ — a rigorous military drill at Labar camp and opened fire, sources said.

“The armed escort responded with high volume of fire and the bandits escaped in disarray,” a source told the Gazette Wednesday morning.

The Gazette learnt that a soldier, who sustained gunshot wounds in the attack, was promptly evacuated to a medical facility in the state for treatment.

The Gazette could not immediately ascertain if the officer cadets undergoing military courses ranging from young officers course (YOC), company commanders course (CCC) and commanding officers course (COC) will resume combat training at the volatile camp or relocate to another exercise ground.

An army spokesman did not return multiple requests for comments.

Military authorities have repeatedly assured of ongoing efforts to intensify the onslaught against bandits and neutralise the activities of cattle rustlers in Kaduna and other disturbed parts of northern Nigeria.

Lagos Policemen Torture PUNCH Journalists Covering #EndSARS Protests

No fewer than 20 policemen guarding the Lagos State House of Assembly in the Alausa area of the state brutalised two PUNCH journalists, Femi Dawodu and Segun Odunayo, while covering the #EndSARS activities in the area on Wednesday.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday declared a 24-hour curfew to stem the tide of the growing violence in the state but allowed those on essential services such as health workers, security operatives, and pressmen to carry out their legitimate duties.

Dawodu and Odunayo had gone to cover events around the Alausa area, a major demonstration ground of the #EndSARS protesters calling for a total overhaul of the Nigeria Police Force.

The PUNCH gathered that the duo was recording a live video of the activities in the area when the policemen accosted them and ordered them to stop the recording.

After showing the policemen their identity cards, indicating that they are journalists covering #EndSARS protests and monitoring compliance with the government-imposed curfew, the policemen became annoyed and pounced on them.

Odunayo said the policemen tortured them for four hours, adding that they stripped them of their clothes, laid them on the floor, beat them with a stick and guns, and took a video recording of them while torturing them at the Lagos State House of Assembly.

Odunayo said, “Femi and I were at the Secretariat in Alausa around 7 am and were doing a live video of the activities going on in the area. We were heading back to the Expressway when a group of armed policemen accosted us at the Lagos State House of Assembly roundabout and immediately collected our phones. We showed them our ID cards but they refused to let us go.

“What got the policemen annoyed was that we saw them using a stick and a rubber to beat a young man and during the live video, they heard me saying that they were beating someone. So, after they arrested us, they tortured us and demanded that we should do another live video denying the statement but we refused.

“Each time we refused, they slapped us, used a stick to beat us, used the butt of their guns to hit our heads and bodies after stripping us of our clothes. All they want was for us to do another live broadcast to claim that we lied and we didn’t because we said the truth.”

Dawodu said it took the intervention of the state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, before they were released at the Alausa Police Station, adding that prior to their release, the policemen took their details, including their addresses, took a video record of them and threatened to go after them if any negative report was published about what happened.

He said, “The policemen were transferring the aggression of what is happening regarding the #EndSARS protest on us. They later took us to the Divisional Police Station in Alausa and if not for the DPO, the policemen guarding the LSHA that arrested us would have done more grievous things to us.

“The PPRO and the DPO later spoke with them and we were released.

“But despite his intervention, we were told to write statements. They collected our details, address, took video recordings of us making false statements during the torture, and threatened to use it to blackmail and go after us if we end up doing any bad report against them.”
