Militants Give Boko Haram Ultimatum
the attacks by Boko Haram against Government Agencies and
Christians in the North, a Militant group from the Niger Delta
region has asked the islamist sect to cease attack on Christians
or be prepared for war.
The group christened Egbesu Mightier Fraternity of Izon Land in
a press statement made available to Pointblanknews.com warn that
the life and properties of Northerners living in the South will
not be spared if Boko Haram continue bombing of churches and
killing innocent Nigerians.
“NOTE WELL, if further killings by Boko Haram as a result of
Goodluck Jonathan's Presidency in the country within fourteen
days of this statement, we shall without hesitation commence
sending every Muslim in the Niger Delta Region to their various
homes and ask our people to return home. No section of this
country is an embodiment of killing others. Muslims can't live
in our land freely (Niger Delta) while they will be killing our
people in their land. If they don't want peace we will meet them
were ever they are. This is our message.” They said.
The Group wondering why no muslim political leaders from the
North has openly condemned the activities of Boko Haram warned
that no northern leaders will be spared in the war against Boko

TENTEN Bazoka Boys of Water-force of Izon land Niger Delta
GEN - KURUMAH GEN - ABU MIC The Strike Force Barkoromo Ogbo
of Izon land Niger Delta the Join Revolutionary Council of the
Niger Delta Militant Group said the activities of Boko Haram was
purely to destabilize the administration of President Goodluck
Jonathan, a Southern Minority.
According to the statement “ We are compelled by the present
Boko Haram merciless bombing in the country without verifiable
developmental agitation. The continuous killings of Christians
in the north should be stop forthwith. Those foolish and
irresponsible enough to assume or pretend that it is possible to
run Nigeria by sectarian dictation do no more than reject a
natural phenomenon, which is that when it hits, it
“The tsunami of Boko Haram will not, in its sweep, skip the
homes and interests of it promoters, active or passive. Boko
Haram has been leaving bombs around churches and other places
with clusters of the innocent. In the event of a failed state,
all those Nigerians pretending to possess two heads, and
currently cruising around in limousines and jetting about the
globe will be grounded.
“Why can't we live in peace? If peace is pronounced a war, why
can't we go our separate ways by amicable agreement? Boko Haram
may have its origins from wherever it likes. Its wild excesses
are essentially a reaction to the Presidential ascendancy of Dr.
Goodluck Jonathan. It has its sponsors and financiers. If we are
actually one Nigeria, why won't we allow other Geo-political
Zone to rule the country?
“Saudi Arabia is the centre of the Islamic faith, yet, there was
not even a single killing of Christian faithful in that
country. W hy all these killings of National Youth Service
Corps members and other innocent citizens in reaction to
Goodluck Jonathan's Presidential Victory?
“No Muslim has condemned the killings of Christians by Boko
Haram in the North. Is it only the administration of President
Goodluck Jonathan Nigeria has witnessed major security lapses as
the northern elites want to ridicule him as incapable of
protecting the territorial integrity of the country? W e have
tasted blood war. That Borno and the entire North are guilty of
harbouring and protecting Boko Haram. If they don't want the
terrorist organization they should push them out of their midst
and give them up to the military after all they live amongst
them and probably pray in the same mosque. So they can't claim
that they don't know where the Boko Haram are.”
“The emergence of the notorious Boko Haram was premediated and
designed to blackmail and undermines the authority of President
Jonathan. The Sect is suspected to be affiliated with the Yemini
version of Al Qaeda.”
“We urge the President to invoke his powers as
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and give his security
chiefs an ultimatum within which to use every strategy to
dislodge the notorious Boko Haram and other perpetrators of
attack on the Nigerian people. The Truth is that no dispensation
will ever be good in Nigeria except from Muslim North. The
release of Boko Haram Co-founder, Alhaji Ali Tishau by the
Police on request by the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) and
later vanished from detention is clear demonstration that the
North is out to fight the President with the Islamic Sect.
Enough is enough with this Sect to worry Mr. President.”
“That if further attempt to distract the developmental attention
of Mr. President in the country, we the Egbesu Mightier
Fraternity will earth the so called Boko Haram in the North.
This is our word. We have killed and we will not care to kill
Crisis Looms Over Arms Build-Up
By Rival Groups
Huhuonline.com has it on good authority that violent religious
clashes between Christian and Fulani/Hausa youths is imminent in
Northern Nigeria, precisely in Jos, Plateau State capital if
appropriate actions are overlooked by the Federal Government as
a result of alleged massive build-up of armament on both sides
of the divide.
Our sources have revealed that "the current calm in North Jos is
only a prelude to a conflict between the youths of the local
native Jos and the Islamic youths of the Hausa/Fulani origin
migrating from Kano, Bauchi, Borno, Zamfara, Niger Republic,
Chad and Burkina Faso.
"Youths, who are natives of Jos, were said to be opting to take
matters into their hands and to take to the offensive instead of
perpetually being on the defensive."
Confirmed sources say "The youths have been angered by the
docile mien of church leaders in the country over past attacks
by Fulani/Hausa youths and have now chosen to go the traditional
route through their village vigilante services to arm themselves
against the expected upsurge of violence.
"At the moment, youth group are raising funds through supporters
and relatives on their own and acquiring weapons, especially
AK47s through the help of military men stationed in Jos who sell
recovered weapons to both sides of the groups.
"They will raid hideouts of armed groups and seize weapons from
them. They always sell these weapons to both the Hausas and the
Christians alike. The local chiefs and monarchs have been
playing the role of coordinators for the on-going fund raising
activities, just as the youths have resorted to fetish powers to
Meanwhile, our findings also revealed that the Islamic youths,
prepared for outright war has laid down a well-coordinated
strategy to prop up the violent campaign in Jos to unbearable
Our source further revealed that lecturers at the University of
Jos in tandem with some of the Muslim cleric have begun a crash
campaign in the campus of "radicalization" of students against
what is believed to be an upcoming push.
Even as claims are rife that the imminent clashes which will be
religious and allegedly funded by some prominent figures in the
state, a police source have also confirmed the presence of
strange faces of youths, considered not to be either students or
residents in and around the University environs.
Among the sponsors of the intending yet to be launched mayhem,
our sources say is a prominent Muslim, considered as the voice
of Muslims in North Jos; a notable politician, whose sons have
become powerful politicians as well and a spiritual leader, who
interprets the Koran to his followers.
Although some concerned crisis managers, say that a violent
outbreak is imminent, they have called on President Goodluck
Jonathan to urgently halt the sustained violence, adding that
there could be no headway until certain fundamental factors
regarding the conflict are addressed.###

blood. When the case was reported at Akwanga Police Station,
police and other security agencies swung to action, but before

injuries. Disturbed by the happening in the area, the villagers
along Akwanga-Keffi – Abuja road as well as Wamba-Akwanga road
have mobilized themselves to form a vigilante group in order to
avert the continuous robbery cases in the area.

…As Journalist Survives Bandits' Attack In Onitsha
A daredevil armed robbery gang Monday shot to death an
unidentified businessman, just as a journalist escaped death by
the whiskers with severe gunshot wounds during an attack on a
commercial motorcycle and his passenger.
According to the journalist, Victor Sorokwu, South-south bureau
chief of the People monthly magazine, who is receiving treatment
in an undisclosed hospital in Onitsha, the gunmen who were
operating on a motorcycle popularly known as Okada, blocked a
man on another motorcycle who they probably thought was carrying
money in a concealed polythene bag.
He said no sooner had they double crossed the man than one of
the assailants who spotted him standing at the gate of Life
Breweries along Port Harcourt Road opened fire on him, saying
his life was saved by sheer providence.
The journalist who had bullets extracted from his left shoulder,
called for increased police patrol in the crisis-prone city to
combat heinous crimes as the yuletide approached, adding that
the rate at which people were being dispossessed of their hard
earned resources in Onitsha was alarming and needed a more
stringent proactive measure by the police to checkmate.
Another eyewitness who spoke to the press, recounted that the
armed robbers, having discovered that the content of the man's
bag was not money as they had thought but just cables, released
some shots in the air apparently to scare the bystanders away,
when one of the traders along the road rushed out and gripped
one of the robbers and started shouting in a bid to attract
other people to arrest the armed robbers.
The source said some of the gang members who were lurking
around, opened fire on the man and shot him continuously until
his entire body was riddled with bullets. “The man just sprang
on one of the robbers and the other gang members swiftly gunned
him down and kept shooting at him until his bowels poured out
and his entire body crushed beyond recognition,” the witness
A police officer attached to the Fegge Police Station, who
pleaded anonymity, said the only man that died in the attack was
a family man who was yet to be identified, adding that he acted
in ignorance and should not have engaged an armed man with his
bare hands into physical brawl.
The officer, who disclosed that the deceased had been deposited
in a private morgue, attributed the increase in robbery in the
commercial city to the quest to make quick money as the year was
Meanwhile, there is increased police patrol in some major
streets and roads within the commercial city of Onitsha, which
the Area Commander, Mr. Larry Osita said was aimed at reducing
crime in the city especially during the ember months.
When contacted, the Anambra State Police Public Relations
Officer, ASP Emeka Chukwuemeka, said he was yet to be officially
briefed on the matter as at the time of filing this report.###
