A man has been jailed for nine years in Mutare, Zimbabwe, after he was found in possession of python meat, Newsday reported.  Archwell Maramba, 58, said he wanted to eat the meat “to cure my spine”.  Pythons are protected reptiles in Zimbabwe. Killing or hunting them is a criminal offence.  His arrest, conviction and sentencing took six days.  “Since I ate my first python I have seen remarkable improvements [in my back problems],” he argued.  Maramba said he only ate pythons, and was introduced to them by artisanal diamond miners in Chiadzwa a few years back, Newsday quoted Maramba as saying.  He was arrested last Friday in Zimunya, south of Mutare on the road leading to the Chiadzwa diamond fields.  It was not immediately clear if Maramba’s arrest was linked to the discovery of a python in Zimunya earlier this month.  Local press reported last week that the 3.4m-long reptile was killed by youths in Zimunya and its carcass burnt.  Maramba told a court in Mutare this week that some friends had brought the dead python to him.  In 2012, four villagers from the Mhondoro district were each given only a 30-day jail sentence, with the option of a fine, for killing and eating a python.1510877_894202887301944_8827696510807422015_n

Stop Insulting Jonathan, Group Tells Amaechi;

A non-governmental organisation called House-To-House Campaign Initiative for Goodluck Jonathan for 2015 has called on Rivers State Governor Rotimi Ameachi to stop insulting President Goodluck Jonathan.  This was contained in a statement signed by founder of the campaign organisation, Hon Ogidi Ben Bara in conjunction the South-South chapter, where they expressed displeasure over the attitude of the Rivers governor of insulting President Jonathan in public.  The statement reads; “It is no more acceptable to Founder, House to House Campaign Initiative for Goodluck Jonathan for 2015, Hon Ogidi Ben Bara and H2HCI, South-South chapter on the insult of Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State on President and Commander-In-Chief, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.  “We in House-to-House Campaign Initiative for Goodluck Jonathan for 2015 say Governor Amaechi must stop insulting the personality of President Jonathan, because it is undemocratic, uncivilised and immature for a sitting governor like Amaechi to point fingers at Mr. President as if they were age mates.  “We express our displeasure over the flippancy demonstrated by Amaechi, which is overheating the polity in Rivers State and causing political violence in the state. It is a motor-park approach to handling challenges before him.  “A boastful man like Amaechi cannot be relevant in the politics of Rivers State and the nation, because since Amaechi pitched tent of war he has lost respect among his people. He is only trying to make derogatory comments to spite Mr. President to score cheap political points.  “This will take him nowhere! He should be careful with his words and we want to tell Amaechi that he cannot cajole Rivers people and Nigerians over his self exaltation and authoritarian manner of doing things because surely he will be humbled someday.  “We want to unequivocally state here that Amaechi’s attitude is uncalled for and has got out of hand and must be stopped at this point because the person of President Jonathan deserves respect.”  Meanwhile, the statement condemned recent call made by Gen. Theophilus Danjuma on the arrest of ex-freedom fighters in the Niger Delta over statements made by Government Ekpudomenowei, aka, Tompolo, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, and Chief Victor Ben Ebikabowei.  “It is imperative to state that the recent call made by Gen. Theophilus Danjuma to arrest Niger Delta leaders, High Chief Government Ekpudomenowei, aka, Tompolo, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, Chief Victor Ben Ebikabowei, aka, Boy Loaf, and others is not good for the polity.  “We want to mention and let Gen. Danjuma know that they are instrumental to the direct and indirect survival and growth of the Nigerian economy and national development.  “With all sense of respect, we least expected him as an elder statesman and somebody who was in government to make such a call for their arrest, which could overheat the polity, especially now the country is preparing to hold a crucial election in two weeks time.  “Former Head of State and APC presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari made a public statement in 2011 that if the elections that year went the way of PDP the blood of baboons and dogs would flow.  “He said he would make the country ungovernable, and if Gen. Danjuma could recall, there was no arrest made to that effect, and even APC threatened to run a parallel government if they failed to be declared winners of the 2015 election and there was no call for their arrests.  “Nigerians should understand that peace in the nation’s political and economic life is as a result of the doggedness and commitment demonstrated by Tompolo, Dokubo, Boyloaf, and other freedom fighters who have resolved that peace must be restored and maintained in the Niger Delta and the nation at large.  “Since they took it upon themselves there has been calm in the oil rich Niger Delta, which has placed Nigeria as a leading oil and gas producing and exporting nation in Africa and the world. Over 2 million barrels of crude oil is being produced in the area.  “Also most of the agitating ex-militants in the area are now professionally trained in different areas of specialization within and outside the country under three years as these leaders of freedom fighters has been part of the value added on the life of these youth under the government of President Goodluck Jonathan.  “The peace in the Niger Delta has transformed into massive development and economic growth, and that was why the APC could have a peaceful campaign in the region. And their commitment to peace brought about the establishment of the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs and Niger Delta Development Commission, including the amnesty programme.  “The late President, Alhaji Umaru Musa Yar’Adua recognised the strategic role played by these distinguished Niger Delta leaders to restore peace in the region and even wine and dine with them at the Presidential Villa, and he will not be happy to hear in his grave that somebody called for their arrest. Let them be, because they have not committed any crime by voicing their views,” the statement added.image8-e1422631068246-300x224

Why ”they” Want Jonathan to Leave By Any Means Necessary..: and Why the Opposition Leaders Are Crying Out Loud

By Chidi Cali, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom Notes and addenda by Henry Omoregie  Some of the decisions of President Goodluck Jonathan has not gone down well with some of leaders and Moneybags of APC, as he closed lots of their sources of defrauding Nigeria.  READ AND BE WISE.  1] Majority of the Oil Blocks licenses in Nigeria will be expiring in few months and many of them are scared that President Jonathan might not renew their licence. They want to him out by all means to retain the Oil blocks licenses.  NOTE: Some others also want a piece of the giant Nigerian pie.. and they believe the only way to ensure this is to bring back the set set of Nigerians known to be champions of nepotism and favouritism. The STAR attributes of CORRUPTION (Please look up the dictionary meaning of corruption)  Others in mostly the south who benefited largely from stolen crude are not happy with the 158% reduction in crude oil theft as announced by the CNS not long ago, and will prefer CHANGE back to the looting of the single largest source of dough for the Nigerian National Cake  Not many Nigerians are aware that the Northern Region paid custom duties to the Western Region until 1976, when Murtala Mohammed took over the reins of Government. Or that as at 1975 when Murtala Mohammed overthrew the Yakubu Gowon administration, the Niger Delta enjoyed 45% rents and royalties? Murtala Mohammed slashed it to 20% (Decree No. 6 of 1975) to assuage the Northern States, before Olusegun Obasanjo, through the Aboyade Technical Commission which recommended the removal of the remaining 20% of the rents and royalties, finally nailed the coffin of the Southern States without any protest from the people of the Niger Delta or other parts of the South.  “Many Hausa-Fulani told me that the North’s escalating poverty has resulted from its declining access to oil because of its loss of the presidency to Olusegun Obasanjo, a Southern Christian Yoruba, following the death of the Northern Muslim Kanuri, Sani Abacha. Their solution to Northern poverty was to recapture the federal government. This they did in the rigged elections of 2007 and the presidency of Umaru Yar’Adua. But, they lost it again when Yar’Adua died in May 2010 and the vice president, Goodluck Jonathan, a Christian Ijaw from Southern Nigeria, became president.” – John Campbell, Former US Ambassador to Nigeria.  2] They were hurt them President Jonathan ended their subsidy fraud. Govt reduced the payment from N1.4 Trillion in 2011 to less than N400 Billion in 2013 and yet there has been no scarcity of fuel in the last 3 years.  3] Jonathan sold off NEPA/PHCN and ended their fraudulent NEPA/PHCN contracts. Now local and International companies are building their power plants to stabilize Power. They will not use any NEPA staff to put SALT on our Power plants again to put everyone in darkness…  NOTE: Generator sellers/dealers will need CHANGE. Only committed and loyal power industry workers will obviously b re-employed by new power services owners. Just as we blame one mobile network provider for poor services and port to another, so we can pick holes in the service delivery of power companies and port to another. Millions of Ignorant Nigerians are unaware of this fact. The FG involvement in power services is now about 20%.  See Fashola boasting of Lagos being almost self-sufficient in power generation  4] Jonathan removed 73,000 ghost workers and 43,756 Ghost Pensioners from civil service and reduced their corrupt wealth by over 2 billion US Dollars in just months. These rogues are using their wealth to pay newspapers, Online media blogs to propagate LIES and FALSEHOOD, sharing negative propaganda against the President. The Ignorants joined them to shout CHANGE. Are they changing to re-employ the removed Ghost workers or re-include Ghost Pensioners in monthly benefits records? Be warned about the CHANGE they want you to Vote For.  5] The President handed NPA verification to a third party and eliminated port frauds. They do not benefit anymore, by dubiously seizing People goods and turning round to buy them in Auction. It is now 24 hours operation and surveillance giving no room for their agents to steal or frustrate Importers. They want their evil reign to return. That is their CHANGE.  6] The cabals were hurt when Jonathan blocked their monopoly of fertilizer distribution and now supply straight to real farmers at a discounted prices. Farmers do not go through Ward chairmen, Party Excos, Politicians or any ‘Timber and Caliber’ to get Fertilizer.  NOTE: There thousands of people who benefited directly.indirectly from the scam. Jonathan busted a 40-year old fertilizer scam in 90 days #Fact  7] They want Jonathan out by all means – he blocked their hoarding of petroleum product and stopped Nigerians from sleeping at filling stations and many roasted alive in any event of fire outbreak in filling stations. Their black market business has been destroyed by Jonathan’s proper management of the supply of these Products and because of this, they ruled that he has failed.  Jonathan did not fail Honest Nigerians, but he failed the Oil Profiteers and thieves. . 8] Jonathan’s re-introduction of One-man-one-vote did not go down well with them. With Soldiers, Police, Secret Police, Civil Defense at Polling Units, Ballot box snatching and stuffing is now a thing of the past. They made you to believe that Jonathan has failed because Polling units are no more in people’s seating room. You forget that the President Party won only in 1 of the 4 governorship election conducted when started his tenure in 2011. Imo – APGA, Anambra – APGA, Edo – APC, Osun – APC, Ekiti – PDP. This would NEVER have happened during OBJ’s government.  9] They want Jonathan out of office because they are aware that the 2016 Census will correct the Population lies imposed on Nigerians over 60 years ago. They are MAD that Jonathan will conduct electronic/scientific census, where only Human beings will be counted and near- zero chance of one person counted twice.  NOTE: No Credible Census in Nigeria Since 1816  No census has been credible in Nigeria since 1816. Even the one conducted in 2006 is not credible. I have the records and evidence produced by scholars and professors of repute. This is not my report. If the current laws are not amended, the planned 2016 census will not succeed,” Odimegwu said. He recalled how staffers of NPC protested against commissioners during the 2006 census over alleged manipulation. “During the 2006 census, workers locked out the commissioners over creation of new areas,” he said. Odimegwu further alleged that a former Lagos State governor (names withheld) falsified a census result some years ago. “Nigeria has run on falsehood for too long. We must stop this falsehood and put a stop to all of these. The Boko Haram problem is partly as a result of that. Because the 2006 census was not correct, the former board of NPC was unable to publish the figures. “If they try it, there will be an uproar. We must make Nigeria work. We cannot do that unless we know the statistics. We cannot build infrastructure without demographic data. As long as the figures in Nigeria are wrong, corruption will continue to thrive. We must have an organised data before we can plan for Nigeria,” he stated.  He urged that Nigeria should either conduct a credible census exercise or forget about it. “It is either we do an accurate census or we will not do anything. We are committed to giving Nigerians a credible and reliable census. Nigerians are weeping up sentiments, but we have gone beyond ethnic sentiments. Nigerian children are suffering and many youths have no jobs,” Odimegwu said.  THIS IS THE ‘CHANGE’ THEY CRAVE  10] They want Jonathan out of office by all means because, in 2016, Jonathan will stop the situation where a Child from Oyo state will be expected score 129 Marks to get admitted into Federal Govt Colleges (Unity schools), while another child from Kebbi is expected to score only 2 Marks to enter the same school. A young man from Osun state is expected to score 190 In JAMB to have opportunity of University education, while his friends from Sokoto are sure of admission, even if they score zero. It is a SHAME that some of the young people that Jonathan is fighting for and ensuring to bring a fair Nigeria for all of us, are now brainwashed, fed with lies and are attacking the man that is fighting for them and their generations to come.  USE YOUR HEAD AND THINK..  11] Nigeria grows its food now, trains are running, our Airports are of international standards, our roads are safer and more motorable, university funding doubled and more built to admit more Jambites.  Our street children in the North (Almajiri) are given opportunity to learn and live in comfortable school hostels, eating good food, and not left-overs, 13 local Motor assembling and Manufacturing company relocates to Nigeria, 9 Local and International Power companies building their power plants since last year to improve of electricity need.  ONE WILL ASK, WHAT CHANGE ARE THESE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT?  Jonathan has shown Nigerians what real democracy supposed to be. He is not killing or jailing his opponents or those that insulted him in the Media cannot be seen as a weakness, but his respect to the law and life. He never sent anyone to prison for a mere allegation of corruption with prove. He allowed them fair and independent hearing by those charged with this responsibility.  These show his meekness, empathy and unconditional postive regard, knowing that he cannot build a better Nigeria alone and that we need every hands in deck to achieve a bigger, better, prosperous and peaceful Nigeria.  God Bless Nigeria.  It is your Choice. #ForwardEver, or #BackNever. – Hope For Nigeria.  LASTWORD: Have you not wondered why one who has fallen foul of the laws of the land is still needed to ”fight corruption” when he is clearly a candidate for perjury and forgery, is still wanted by some people even if he presents a toilet paper as certificate after proving to the whole world that he is a MORON?  Don’t be surprised to know that lots of Buharists are forgers of certificates or age falsifiers like their idol  I WILL STABILIZE CRUDE OIL PRICES IF ELECTED NIGERIAN PRESIDENT – BUHARI  PIX Date Published: 02/17/2010  I made $500 million from oil block – Gen. T. Y Danjuma  A former Minister of Defence, Lt.-Gen Theophilus Danjuma, shocked his audience at a consultative meeting his Foundation and some Non-Governmental Organisations had in Abuja on Wednesday when he narrated how he made $500m from an oil business, and was in a fix on how to spend it.  The chief executives of the NGOs at the meeting could not believe their ears after hearing Danjuma’s narration.  The former Chief of Army Staff said the $500m, came as his profit from the total of $1bn he had realised from selling an oil block, which was allocated to him 12 years ago.  About $500m had been used to settle some pressing personal issues, pay his staff, and tax to the government.  He recalled that the story started 12 years ago when he was allocated an oil block by the regime of late Gen. Sani Abacha.  He said that the oil block which was in Port Harcourt, River State, however, took him about 10 years before his company first struck oil. Luckily for him, by this time, the price of oil had soared in the international market.  He said this made him to sell the block because he knew that “whatever goes up must come down,” stressing that the deal fetched him $1bn.  He also said that he was left with ‘just’ $500m after he had taken care of the essentials of life.

Area Father,a.k.a Charley Boy,

Charly Boy Advocates Violence-free Elections Music icon, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, has pledged his support for the National Orientation Agency (NOA)’s campaign to inspire hope in the country. He made the pledge during an advocacy visit paid on him by the director general of NOA, Mr Mike Omeri, in Abuja. He noted that Nigeria is in need of people to inspire the youth and the less privileged to remain committed to the nation and retain its cherished values. Earlier, Omeri called on social icons in the country to promote non-violence before, during and after the 2015 general election as their own contribution towards supporting the growth of democracy in Nigeria. According to him, “I am here because the values you espouse, especially the love of country, is the message that we need to send out now as we prepare for the election and post election scenario. The truth is that there will be Nigeria after the election and we should send messages that give the impression that there is Nigeria. “So I plead with you to join us in creating the right message and understanding of the role of election in our national life. There is Nigeria after election,” he said.10915145_10152827754963409_3372025975950735522_n

The Yorubas Are Traitors, And I Don’t Care About The Loss Of Northern Blood – Asari Dokubo

The Niger Delta militant leader Asari Dokubo yesterday said that after Goodluck Jonathan’s term in office is over they will take their oil away. Asar Dokubo made the threat in a 20-minute phone conversation with Dr Peregrino Brimah, the Sahara Reporters correspondent. Brimah reports that the conversation was a very heated one, which ranged from the topic of Boko Haram to the 2015 national elections. Asari Dokubo was said to be unrepentant and aggressive in his total support for the rule of President Jonathan. Below is Brimah’s account of the conversation between the two. gui6IHbF2HwMcdjZ6uRP6qsP (1) I told him that at a time I had respected him (Dokubo) but now he has lost all my respect; asking how much money would make him support a killer leadership. I asked how insensitive he was witnessing how Jonathan’s corruption had undermined the army and how the president’s failures (not complying with the Paris summit agreement to station 700 troops to defend the border) directly led for instance to the death of over 2500 defenseless Nigerians at Baga. He mentioned Fulani. I asked what the poor Kanuri fishermen and farmers of Baga had to do with a so-called Fulani thing. He responded that the killings were in the north and he had no business or care about that. He further cited wars in other places and the example of Libya and the sack of Moammar Gaddafi. I told him that in those cases there was not an inebriated and cluelessly corrupt government that caused the preventable wars and asked him why then does he support Jonathan who disgraced Africa being the first African leader to support the NATO destruction of Gaddafi and Libya in effect, while great leaders like Jacob Zuma stood behind Libya. He said something about having trained in Libya and accused General Buhari, chief opposition candidate of receiving funds for his presidential campaign in 2011 from Gaddafi. I did not understand his point, because I supported Gaddafi and Libya against the colonialist sponsored invasion and have no grouse with Gaddafi. I insisted; that why will he support a Jonathan who aided the hegemonists destroy North Africa by sacking Gaddafi, now leading to the proliferation of arms and instability in the entire region. I went on to ask him how much he had been paid and what this money was worth, that it made him sell his soul for a hopeless candidate. He continued a tirade against the North, the “Gambari’s” and the Yorubas, saying all were traitors and that why am I interested in the Fulani ruling me. I told him that this conversation had nothing to do with Buhari; that if he wanted he should not support anyone, or should have brought out a responsible candidate from his family, but how does his conscience feel supporting someone who was killing innocent people across the country. He responded again accusing Yorubas, the group to which I belong, of being traitors and bragging of all the bombs his terror group had detonated across Yoruba land. I told him that his desperation for a penny had made him betray the true struggle of the Ijaw people; I pointed out that Bayelsa was the most polluted piece of land on the planet with terrible suffering. He challenged my stats and asked me what I knew about Bayelsa. I responded that I lived there for a year and that the sky there is still red with burning of natural gas. I told him how oil spillage has destroyed their ecosystem under Jonathan. He asked how long Jonathan had been there. I retorted that 6 years was long enough to effect transformation. He said I lied and that I had never lived in Bayelsa. I went ahead to describe Bayelsa to him. He was very angry and continued to curse Yoruba people as traitors who betrayed in the past and threatened that the Yorubas will feel the wrath of the Ijaw. I told him he was a coward, that if he was not he would have liberated his father’s house and kept the oil under its soil for himself. He laughed and responded that we (Nigerians) are their slave; that they will support Jonathan to rule till 2019 after which they will then take “their” oil and go. He said they were just punishing us for now. I asked him if Jonathan was supervising the Boko Haram pogrom of the north as some sort of “revenge” for Nigeria’s past errors. I asked him why Goodluck Jonathan had not restructured the country so he can preside over Otueke and leave other people alone and not continue to finance and supervise our suffering and deaths. Telling him about the failure of the national conference when only the Yorubas in attendance and Northerners like the Lamido of Adamawa had asked for their own sovereignty, but his people had failed to make such push and Jonathan had failed to use the avenue of the conference to bring about change. He asked me why I was not invited to attend it. I asked where his conscience was and how he felt about the deaths of thousands of innocent people because of the little change he got from the corrupt Jonathan government. I told him that the money does not pass the fourth generation and that the little money he gets that has made him betray the Kalabari kingdom and great King Amachree and the people of Ijaw land will be finished before he knows it and shame will remain to his name. He went on a tirade about some stuff I could not really understand. It had to do with killing and bombings and stuff. I told him he was a coward. He was very upset throughout the interview. I really wish he pays attention to his blood pressure. Interestingly, he has a Chief Security Officer, CSO; his CSO named Commander George believes in Nigeria. By Dr. Peregrino Brimah Asari Dokubo, Tompolo and Boyloaf last week threatened the nation with war if President Goodluck Jonathan fails to win the February 14 presidential election.gui6IHbF2HwMcdjZ6uRP6qsP-1

Valid Reasons Why NOBODY Should Vote For Buhari – Fani-Kayode,

Former minister of Aviation, Femi-Fani Kayode has described the emergence of Major General Mohammadu Buhari (rtd.) as the presidential flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as laughable. 9940e2ce44d712c2e05884159380d3ce_L He took to Facebook to share his thoughts on the outcome of the APC primaries publicly kicking against the choice of Buhari. His message reads: Major General Mohammadu Buhari has emerged as the APC flagbearer and President Goodluck Jonathan has emerged for the PDP. Now the battle for the soul and future of our nation begins. The forces of light shall surely prevail over the forces of darkness and God’s counsel alone shall stand over Nigeria. I stand with Jonathan. Let’s get it on. ”Jihadi groups killed more than 5,000 people last month, with Iraq topping the league table of deaths, followed by Nigeria, Afghanistan and Syria. In 664 incidents recorded in November by the BBC World Service and researched jointly with King’s College London, the overall death toll was 5,042, or an average of 168 deaths per day and nearly twice the number of people who were killed in the 11 September 2001 attacks on America. After Iraq, Nigeria, Afghanistan and Syria, Yemen was fifth in the deadly league table, tying with Somalia, with 37 incidents each”- DORO ADEBENTLEY 11 December, Facebook. All this and some people still say they want Buhari as President? A man who said, only last year, that ”an attack on Boko Haram is an attack on the north”? A man who said, in 2001, that he wants to ”spread sharia throughout the federation”? A man who said, in 2001, that muslims should only vote for muslims”? A man who said, in 2001, that ”why should christians be concerned when muslims cut off their limbs under sharia”?. A man who said, in 2001, that ”after all the limbs that are being cut off are muslim ones and not christian so why should the christians bother about it”? This is the man that some Nigerians are clamouring for to be their President? May God open their eyes and protect them from themselves. May He grant them wisdom and discernment.9940e2ce44d712c2e05884159380d3ce_L-600x398

10968501_692649804187465_5092366178445174723_n“Igbos Hate Me Because of Biafra War” – Buhari In BBC Hausa.  Maj Gen Muhammadu Buhari has dropped the bombshell, on the reason he has been losing election in Igboland and parts of Nigeria where Igbos are residing, stating that it is because he was involved in the Nigerian civil war.  The former dictator speaking today on BBC Hausa services monitored in kaduna, said with regrets that, “the igbos hate him for what happened during the Biafran war”. “I don’t have any regret, and at such do not owe any apology to them, infact if there is a repeat of the civil war again, I will kill more Igbos to save the country”.  The APC presidential candidate, added that this was the reason they never bothered to vote for him anywhere in Nigeria.  It is shame, that a man that is aspiring to rule the whole country, not part of it, will talk in this manner.  BEWARE, THIS MAN HAS NEVER TALKED ABOUT PEACE, BUT BLOODBATH AND PAIN.

How General Buhari Killed Nollywood Actor Nkem ‘Osofia’ Owoh’s Brother In His Prime | GRAPHIC IMAGE

With the growing attention being paid to the military regime of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, facts have emerged on Thursday, January 29, 2015 that unknown to many, Bartholomew, the elder brother of popular Nollywood actor, Nkem Owoh (popularly known as Osuofia) was killed by the military regime of the 72-year old retired general. Buhari According to Breaking Times, an unnamed source who did not want his name in print revealed that the then 26-year old Bartholomew was among three people – including 30-year old Lawal Ojuolape and 29-year old Bernard Ogedengbe – who were notoriously killed by firing squad on allegations of drug trafficking. The widely condemned killing of the trio in 1985 was criticized because General Buhari back-dated a decree stipulating death sentence for drug trafficking offenders, whereas the alleged crime was committed before he came into power. Buhari changed the law just to kill the three young men. According to the source, Osuofia and the rest of his family are yet to come to terms with the public execution of their son and sibling, especially. Owoh-tirr The source said: “Nkem Owoh and his family are so distraught with Buhari for killing their brother at the young age of 26. Every time he sees Buhari on TV, he weeps bitterly over his brother. He can’t even believe that Buhari has the nerve to seek re-election as President.”10624689_692637824188663_3808486839264945038_nBuhari
