ONE KILLED, MANY ABDUCTED, AS GUNMEN INVADE KADUNA COMMUNITY

By John Shiklam in Kaduna

One person was killed while many others, including final year students of a Junior Secondary School were abducted when gunmen invaded Damba-Kasaya community in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The bandits were said to have arrived the community on Monday at about 8am, on motorcycles.

They were said to have abducted many of the villagers before storming Prince Academy, to abduct Junior Secondary School (JSS3 ) students who were receiving lessons, preparatory to their final exams.

One of the villagers was reportedly killed when they were pursuing the bandits.

Bawa Wakili, a resident of the community, said the bandits came in large numbers “like they always do” and were shooting sporadically.

Besides, the bandits also destroyed musical and public address system worth thousands of naira in Aminchi Baptist Church, located in the community.

Wakili, who lamented the security situation in rural communities, said he relocated to Damba-Kasaya a couple of months ago after herdsmen sacked his village, Rumana Gbagyi also in Chikun LGA.

“They abducted many people in the village, then they went to Prince Academy and abducted many of the students who were receiving lessons for their JSS3 exams.

“I cannot say how many people were kidnapped, but they went away with many people,” he said.

According to him, “Soldiers who came to their rescue, turned back after some few kilometres, leaving some of the villagers who accompanied them to rescue the victims.

“The villagers, not knowing that the soldiers had withdrawn, kept pursuing the bandits in the bush, the bandits fired at them and one person was killed.”

Mohammed Jalige, the spokesman of the Kaduna State Police Command, could not be reached as his mobile phone was switched off.

Chikun is one of the council areas in Kaduna State ravaged by bandits. Many communities have been sacked by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen.

BREAKING: SANWO-OLU TO ABOLISH PENSION FOR EX-GOVS, DEPUTIES

By Sodiq Oyeleke

Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday announced his intention to repeal the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law 2007), which provides for payment of pension and other entitlements to former Governors and their Deputies.

He made this known while presenting the 2021 budget to the Lagos State House of Assembly.

Sanwoolu said the bill would be sent to the Lagos Assembly for legislative approval.

According to Sanwo-Olu, the abolition of pension for former governors and deputies will reduce the cost of governance.

He said, “Mr. Speaker and Honourable Members of the House, in light of keeping the costs of governance low and to signal selflessness in public service, we will be sending a draft executive bill to the House imminently for the repeal of the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law 2007), which provides for payment of pension and other entitlements to former Governors and their Deputies.”
