Bello

 

The Wife of the Niger state Governor, Dr. Amina Sani Bello has vowed to stop the increasing cases of women with vesicovaginal fistula (VVF)  in the state declaring that there is no reason why women should continue to suffer from the disease.

Speaking to newsmen at the General Hospital, Kontagora before embarking on VVF surgery boot camp for 30 women, Bello said, “I have seen the damage VVF have done to women, it is my passion to bring an end to it. I do not see why a woman would die or have complications at birth when something can be done to prevent it. I do not see what we should allow our women to have this kind of suffering. Seriously, if you know the kind of suffering these women go through, you will do all you can to help them. ”

She lamented that there are a lot of women suffering from the disease in the state who are in hiding due to the stigmatization that faces anyone with the disease.

Melaye: As the axe falls on CP…

Melaye is a noise maker, says Yahaya Bello

FOR Ali Janga, outgoing Commissioner of Police (CP) in Kogi State, the truth dawned like the knell of eternal damnation; chaos permeated his peace immediately Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris, announced his removal as Kogi CP.

Like a poisonous tide unleashed like a dam, calm withdrew from Janga’s world following the escape from police custody, of six suspects, including two principal suspects, Kabiru Saidu aka Osama and Nuhu Salisu aka Small, on his watch.

While he embarked on a race against time to re-arrest the suspects and save his job, Janga had to contend with the fear of reprimand by higher police authorities.

He probably envisaged his fate prior to its dawn. Soon after the suspects made a miraculous escape from his custody, Janga was given the boot by IGP Idris.

Even before his removal, the deposed CP was thrown in a state of flux. Under immense pressure, he embarked on a desperate quest to apprehend the suspects but his removal from office threw a spanner…

PIMPS and influential ladies who traffic girls from Edo State to Europe, America and other parts of the world, otherwise known as madams, are now said to be jittery about the curse placed recently by the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II on human traffickers and those who aid them.

The revered monarch did not only place a curse on those who paint the state in a bad light through the trafficking of girls from the state, he also forced the native doctors who aid the traffickers by administering oaths on the girls to “enslave” them to their masters and madams, as the case may be, to reverse the effect of the oaths administered on the girls.

The pimps and madams concerned are now jittery and are said to be in disarray over the curse placed upon them should they continue their nefarious activities. The turn of events is said to be due to the importance attached to the curses from the revered Benin monarch and their efficacy. There are antecedents. An age-long myth subsists about the…
