Abdulrahman Kabir Magayaki, a brother to the victim, said late Kabir was taken away from their house to Zaria then to Kano State where his body was retrieved after the ransom was paid.

“One of the suspects that took the boy away was our neighbour while the ex-military personnel was also a resident in the community. They took him to Zaria from there to Kano where his body was retrieved inside drainage after they collected 5 million naira ransom,” he said.

Abdulrahman said the victim’s body was brought back to Kaduna and buried according to Islamic rites on Saturday May 1. Another resident, on condition of anonymity, said the victim must have been killed after he recognised the faces of his abductors since they all live in the same area.

 

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the Kaduna state police command, ASP Mohammed Jalige, said three suspects have been arrested in connection to the crime, including the neighbour.

 

He said they all confessed to the crime but said he cannot comment on the military background of one of the suspects until after the investigation is concluded.

Vandalism throws over 50 Enugu, Ebonyi communities into darkness

Published

on

Over 50 communities in Enugu State have been thrown into darkness following the vandalism of Amechi – Awgu 33KV mainline, property of the Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC), which supplies electricity to the affected communities.

The vandalism, which occurred at Nenwe Junction down to the World University in Aninri Local Government Area, involved the removal of about 40 spans of aluminum conductors on the line as well as the collapse and damage of 15 High Tension poles.

This development was made known in Enugu on Thursday by the Head, Corporate Communications, EEDC, Emeka Ezeh.

Ezeh stated that this part of the network has been under attack by vandals since January this year, and the present incident reoccurred barely two weeks after the company had spent millions of Naira in replacing the vandalized items.

“This portion of the network was attacked in January, February, and twice in April, which has led to the present darkness experienced by electricity customers in these affected communities, as about 130 distribution substations (transformers) are affected and cannot supply electricity to customers,” he said.

According to EEDC’s spokesman, the entire communities in Aninri Local Government Area, over 50% of the communities in Awgu Local Government Area and Akaeze and Ishiagu under Ivo Local Government Area of Ebonyi Atate were affected by this ugly incident.

Some of the affected communities include Mgbowo, Ugwuleshi Awgu, Ogwuofia Awgu, Obodo Asaa Awgu, Ogwumabiri Awgu, Obeagu, Nmaku, Mgbidi, Ihe, Okpanku, Mpu, to mention but a few.

“As a business, we are concerned about the inconveniences our customers in the affected communities are subjected to, its effect on their various businesses and the revenue losses we are recording as a service provider,” Ezeh added.

“Vandalism of power installations within the EEDC’s network has remained a cog in the wheel of progress. No day passes without an incident of vandalism in one or two locations within the network.

“Transformer vandalism is more rampant, but these days, we have cases where some spans of the network are vandalized, keeping hundreds of thousands of customers in darkness,” he stated.

Ezeh appealed to all electricity customers and the public, especially neighbourhood vigilantes to help in safeguarding the power installations serving them.

FA Cup: Tuchel defends decision on Tammy Abraham in Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Leicester

Published

on

Thomas Tuchel has explained why Tammy Abraham was not considered in his squad for the FA Cup final against Leicester City on Saturday.

The German tactician insisted it was a difficult decision for him to leave Abraham out of the team.

Abraham featured prominently for Chelsea under Frank Lampard before the coming of Tuchel in January.

But the England striker has fallen dramatically down the pecking order despite being the club’s top goalscorer this season.

The 23-year-old scored his first senior hat-trick in the fourth round of the FA Cup against Luton, which was Lampard’s final game at the helm.

Tuchel left the striker out of the team for the final on Saturday opting to start with Timo Werner up front.

He brought on Olivier Giroud during the closing stages as Chelsea tried, but ultimately failed, to find an equalising goal.

Asked after the game if Abraham simply wasn’t a player for him, Tuchel told Stadium Astro: “No, it’s just hard decisions on a matchday when you can only nominate 18 players.”
