Governor Umahi imposes curfew in Ebonyi, says IPOB is not responsible for most attacks in the state

Governor David Umahi on Wednesday April 28, said the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is not responsible for most of the attacks in Ebonyi state. 

 

Umahi said this while addressing newsmen after a security council meeting held in Abakiliki. The Governor who alleged that hoodlums hide under the umbrella of IPOB to carry out their evil attacks, backed this up with a recent attack of a bank in Onueke in Ezza South Local Government Area of the state. 

 

The Ebonyi state Governor said; 

 

“We are aware that there are some killings over the weekend; a policeman was killed, two army men were killed and I think one civilian and their killers are pure bandits.

“They do these killings and put it in social media that they are members of IPOB or ESN.

“Without standing for either IPOB or ESN, but they continue to deny that they are not into violence but for me, criminality is criminality and I have directed security agencies to crack down on all criminal activities in the state.

“And for those who did the killings, the security agencies must bring them to book within 72 hours, they must do that.”

 

The Governor also imposed curfew in the border axis of the state which he said would start on Wednesday from 8 pm to 6 am. He further directed natives doctors and traditional medicine dealers within seven days to register with the state government or face prosecution.

 

Umahi said the Commissioner in charge of Border Peace and Internal Security, the Commissioner for health and the state Commissioner of Police would be empowered with an executive order to arrest and prosecute any offender.

He added; 

 

“We have agreed that all native doctors in the state and traditional medicine dealers must within seven days today register with the Commissioner for Border Peace, with the Commissioner for health and with the CP.

“There will be an executive order to this effect and anyone that is caught doing otherwise will be arrested and will be prosecuted.”

 

Decrying an alleged increase in fake news in the state, Umahi stated that his administration would henceforth track down those behind such information and prosecute them.

 

He said; 

 

“We agreed that there is rampant fake news in Ebonyi State.

“Like today, somebody posted that herdsmen are in Ebonyi and they are killing people and schools started closing down, students and pupils started running helter-skelter. Is that what we will continue to tolerate?

“And so, I have directed whether you are in opposition, whether you are in agreement, whatever thing you are, you should be tracked down so that you should be going to court to prove whatever thing you are putting.”

Iniubong Umoren, Deceased Job Seeker Emerged As A Top Performer In Her Graduating Class

Published

on

Iniubong Umoren, the job seeker who was raped and murdered by a man who persuaded her with a feigned job interview came out as the best graduating student in the Department of Philosophy, University of Uyo, Uyo.

Netizens have dug out more information on the victim and as seen from the photo displayed below, Iniubong was listed seventh among the top graduating students in the 2020/2020 class with a GPA of 4.12. The results was released by the University of Uyo.

The veracity of the results provided by the reputable institution was asserted by Idorenyin Esikot, associate professor and acting head, Departement of Philosophy, University of Uyo. He told PREMIUM TIMES that Miss Umoren was an outstanding student with exceptional performance.

According to him, she would have likely been employed as a lecturer at the department after her National Youth Service Corpse (NYSC) programme which is mandatory for everyone.

Mr Esikot told PREMIUM TIMES in Uyo on Saturday that she was only a few points away from making first class.

He said:

“She was a very committed and focused student, very hard working. In fact, she was very versatile because apart from her academics, she was a footballer, playing for our female team.

“She was very social and dependable; she wasn’t the kind of student that would play around. Whatever she does, she was very committed,”

Mr Esikot said Miss Umoren expressed sadness over her demise saying her end was a personal loss to him. “Anytime I remember it, it’s like a nightmare. Very unfortunate,” he said.

“If she had been alive and wanted to come into the (teaching) profession, she is the kind of student we would encourage to come into the profession. Because that is a student that never failed a course and was always doing well. Those who know my department, before you can come out top the way she did, then you must agree that she was really hard working.

“We have some of our colleagues, who are lecturers (today), who graduated with less GPA than her,” Mr Esikot said.

Ben Chilwell names ‘brilliant’ player in Chelsea squad after Man City win

Published

on

Former Premier League referee, Dermot Gallagher, has said that Manchester City should have been awarded a penalty for Kurt Zouma’s collision with Raheem Sterling during their defeat to Chelsea.

Manchester City took the lead through Sterling’s first effort while Sergio Aguero missed a golden opportunity to extend City’s lead from the spot.

Thomas Tuchel’s side came back stronger in the second half scoring through Hakim Ziyech before Marcos Alonso turned in Timo Werner’s low cross to secure a 2-1 win for the visitors at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola was angered by referee Anthony Taylor decision to waved away the penalty claim after Zouma appeared to clip the back of Sterling’s leg inside Chelsea’s area.

“I think it’s a penalty, it’s clumsy, he doesn’t play the ball,” Gallagher told Premier League Productions when asked about the incident.

“It is a penalty in my view but I think it is so minimal contact that VAR looks at it, is it a clear obvious error?

“He’ll say no, leave it with the on-field [decision]. Many, many times we’ve asked for the on-field referee to make the decision.

“I think in this case it’s left to the on-field [decision]. I feel he’s got it wrong. What I would say is he’s made a genuine decision and I can’t see VAR overturning it.

“What you have to remember is he’s [the VAR official] there to say if it’s a clear and obvious error. I think not, in my view it’s a penalty, but it’s so subjective.

“A lot of people look at that and say there’s not enough contact. Only a few weeks ago we were talking about how many penalties have been given that wouldn’t have been given in previous years because the tolerance level for contact has been brought down so low.

“So I think the balance has got to be – does a referee on the field think it’s a penalty? No. Does the VAR looking at it think it’s a clear and obvious error? He thinks no, so it’s left with the on-field decision.”
