Saraki: Buhari Should Listen, Bandits Don’t Kill Along Party

Buhari should listen, bandits don’t kill along party lines: Saraki
“It might look like a long journey, but eventually, the truth
will prevail, and the right thing will be done.”
Former Senate President Bukola Saraki has called on
President Muhammadu Buhari to listen to the advice of the
Peoples Democratic Party and other Nigerians that he may
consider as critics to find a solution to the ongoing
nationwide chaos in the country.
“When we talk about security, it’s not about political party. It
affects all Nigerians,” he pointed out. “People who are
losing their lives, I am sure some of them do not belong to
any political party.”
Mr Saraki stated this at a world press conference of the
major opposition party in Abuja on Monday. He pointed out
that the PDP would continue to play its role in letting Mr
Buhari’s regime be aware of its lapses.
According to him, his party will continue to put pressure
through constitutional means in telling the government what
they need to do.
“We will not get tired because when we see changes in the
world, it has come through constitutional means,” said Mr
Saraki. “It might look like a long journey, but eventually, the
truth will prevail, and the right thing will be done.”
The PDP chieftain also expressed the hope that Nigeria
would start a new journey to greatness in a short period and
advised Mr Buhari to listen to the people in various
communities of the country, especially on the issue of
insecurity.
Speaking further, Mr Saraki noted, “So, that responsibility of
government is to all of us as Nigerians, and we are speaking
on behalf of all Nigerians that the right thing needs to be
done.
“We will continue to do that through conscious
constitutionally agreed procedures.”

Police Kill 4 Wounded IPOB Gunmen Receiving Treatment In Rivers, Recover Charms by fergie0o1 : 2:33pm On May 15 A tactical team of the Nigerian Police has stormed the hideout of some of the fleeing wounded gunmen in Oyigbo Local Government Area, Rivers State, killing four of them and a female nurse. The slain gunmen were reportedly being treated by the nurse identified simply as Chichi in a hidden area of Oyigbo when the squad surrounded the building and opened fire on them. It was gathered that sensing danger one of them on drip attempted to escape by scaling the fence unknown to him that the area had been surrounded by armed policemen, who shot him dead. The policemen subsequently gained access to the building and killed three others receiving treatments and the nurse, who was caught up in the gunfire, was also hit by a bullet. The victims were said to be among the gunmen, who recently murdered seven policemen in surprised and coordinated attacks on security formations along the East- West Road and Elimgbu Police Station. A security source, who spoke in confidence, said the bandits were trying to get medical treatments for multiple bullet wounds inflicted on them by the police when luck ran out on them. He said: “Remember that recently gunmen, who disguised as security operatives killed seven policemen when they attacked their formations along the East-West Road and the Elimgbu Police Station. “During that attack, the police at Elimgbu engaged them in a gun battle. They sustained many injuries and even abandoned their Hilux van. Those who were wounded ran to their hideout at Irebe side in Oyigbo and hired one Uchechi, a nurse to treat them. “The police tracked them to the hideout. Three of them were already on drip. Sensing danger, one of the gunmen scaled the fence but was gunned down by the squad. “The policemen eventually gained access to the building and met three others on drip. They made efforts to shoot at the police but the policemen gunned them and in the process the lady was hit by a bullet and she died. “I can tell you that they are IPOB members. Five registration booklets of IPOB, many charms and some arms were recovered from them. You need to see their body, which was previously riddled by bullet. Though the bullets may not kill them because of their charms, the effects and the injuries will still show.” Though all efforts to reach the Police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni and the Commissioner of Police, Emuebie Ebuka proved abortive, a senior police officer, who spoke in confidence, confirmed the report. He said: “Five of the fleeing gunmen were traced to their location, where a nurse was treating them and they were all killed including the nurse. They are IPOB members not armed robbers. “Items recovered from the scene including five IPOB registration booklets are still at the Oyigbo police station and they will soon be brought to our command headquarters in Port Harcourt.”
