• Monarch’s palace razed

From KOFA KINGS, Ughelli and PAUL OSUYI, Asaba

Mayhem sparked by irate youths in Jesse community in Ethiope West Local Government Area of Delta State has claimed the lives of a soldier and eight others, just as the palace of the traditional ruler, Ovie of Idjerhe kingdom, Ertiekevwe 1 was set ablaze.

The violence followed an allegation that a suspected assassin, who was caught by the Jesse youths and brought to the palace of the ruler, escaped allegedly under the royal father’s watchful eyes.

Daily Sun gathered that in an attempt to raze the king’s palace, the faction loyal to him and the opposing side engaged in a fierce battle.

Eight persons including a woman and a soldier were feared to have died after the dust settled. According to a source, who preferred anonymity, the Jesse youths were irked by the activities of some suspected assassins, who had been terrorizing, raping women and manhandling helpless farmers in the community. Infuriated by the activities of the suspected assassins, believed to be Fulani herdsmen, the youths invaded the bush and caught a suspect believed to be a native of Jesse community but confessed to be carrying out the illicit acts alongside three other Fulani herdsmen and another native of the community currently at large.

Continuing, he said the Jesse native caught in the act was suspected to be a member of a factional group in the community opposed to the traditional ruler’s administration. According to the source, when the suspect was taken to the king’s palace, most of the youths demanded that he should be killed immediately but the king overruled them, insisting that he be handed over to the police. It was further gathered that the king called the police who later came to arrest and whisked the suspect away to the police station.

The youths, irked by the king’s decision, razed down the palace. It took the intervention of the police to rescue the king, while men of the Military Joint Task Force, in the process of trying to stop the youths from further damage, allegedly shot seven youths and a woman dead.

When the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Charles Muka, was contacted, he confirmed the report, but said three persons died, one was injured while 12 persons were arrested. At the time of filing this report, more soldiers had been deployed in Jesse community to restore normalcy.

  3. Our security agents needs adequate training, these people don’t know how to handle crises with tear-gas and rubber bullets, and other equipments. They came to save life but they are the one that wasted life. Untrained block-sucking idiots.

  6. At a social gathering where other moguls and wealthy men were present. One Igbo business man looked for all ways to impress other rich men who were present at the gathering.
    He sent for his driver and had this conversation with him.
    ” Driver, go to my house, not the cream one, the white one.
    Not the white one in Ikoyi, the white one at Victoria Island.
    Not the one at Adeola Odeku, the one on Etim Inyang Crescent.
    Not no 22, no 11.
    Take this remote control for the large black gate,
    press the button, it will open.
    You will see a blue 2012 KIA optima sport.
    Perpendicularly, adjacent opposite tothe KIA is another blue Toyota Camry.
    It is not that one.
    Trigonometrically, geometrically, hypotenously 90 degrees Camry is a gray 2012 Lexus V8,
    It’s not that one.
    The Lexus is very close to a Black Mercedes Benz Gl 4matic,
    the Benz is just behind a silver colored Chrysler 300c, the Chrysler is beside my Red Escalate Esv which is in front of my white 2010 EscalateExt, blocking a hummer H3T, opposite a blue Toyota Prado that makes a crescent to a 2011 GMC XXL.
    On getting to the GMC, make a diagonal sharp turn to the left extreme, on your way to where I parked the ash colored Chevrolet Avalanche, very close to a Red BMW X6 in front of a Jaguar 2012 x-j, by the side of a Mercedes 63-AMG, just by my swimming pool.
    At the back of the pool is my latest 2012 Chrysler Me-Four-Twelve Convertible.
    Don’t touch the bonnet.
    Go to the boot, open it, you will see red, white and blue briefcases.
    The red one contains dollars, $10 million.Don’t touch it.
    The blue contains pounds, 8 million pounds.Don’t touch it.
    The white one contains naira, 500s, 200s, 100s, 50s, 20s, and 10s denominations.
    I arranged them in hierarchical order
    .#500 in first layer
    .#200 in second.
    #100 3rd layer.
    #50 4th layer.
    #20 5th layer.
    #10 6th layer.
    Take 10 naira and buy me 5 naira pure water, abeg bring change ooo!!!

  7. But why do our youths always want to kill suspects, and why do our security men dont control irate youths with water canons, rubber bullets and tear gas???

  8. In d first place,why do they ask d king to kill d victim,another blood suckers of Alluu kingdom.9ja police and soldiers should learn how to make peace without wasting a soul

  9. @Ugo the youth want any suspect dead instantly bc d case wil die a natural death wen it gets to the hands of security agencies and dats wat hapend..

  10. Akinola Kayode on

    Nigeria is indeed a failed state. What on earth are soldiers doing on our streets whenever there is crisis? Soldiers are trained to protect our territorial integrity. What is the duty of anti riot policemen who are paid to protect lives and properties? Corruption is now at highest level and one wonders why this government is not doing anything about it. God save Nigeria.

  11. Nigeria,police and army are so useless,last week policemen went to rescue victims of armed robbery but end up shooting the victims,now army going to stop riot went only to killed the rioters what a country where human life is nothing,i weep for my country

  12. wen JTF were killing innocent people in yobe and maiduguri in the name of boko haram, most the commentators here were happy asking JTF to carry on with their killings,not knowing that what ever goes around come around.

  13. HINTS :

    …Do you know that Bitter kola nut now sold for $19 in Europe as at March 2012.

    …Do you know that exporting Bitter Kola does not require any Machine for processing as it can also be exported raw.

    Imagine you bought for N500 here in Nigeria and sell for $19 per kg, that means you will be making more than you ever think.

    Project Implementation Cost Estimates

    The project can be carried out on a small or large scale basis. A capital base of N60,000/N100,000 is enough to start this business on a small scale.

    Raising this money could be by personal savings ofthe investor, borrowing from friends and relations, assistance from SMEDAN, loans from Microfinance banks, and/or other feasible sources.

    The viability of this project will ensure that the account of money raised in funding this project can be generated within one years of operation after all operational expenses are met.

  14. IF YOU MANAGE TO TAKE A CRIMINAL TO THE POLICE IN A SHORT WHILE THE CRIMINAL WILL BE RELEASE AND START TERRIORING THE NEIGHBOURHOOD AND IF U EVENTUALLY TAKE THEM TO THE LAW COURT, IS EITHER THERE WILL DELAY IN THE PROCESS OR YOU TURNOUT TO BE THE CRIMINAL YOURSELF BECUASE OF INJUSTICE. YOUTHS ARE VERY TIRED OF ALL THESE NONSENSE THEREFORE THEY SEEM TO JUDGE THE CRIMINALS IMMIDIATELY.

  15. The youths were right by handing over the suspects to their king.If the youths had respect for their king,they should have listened to their king,s advice to hand over the suspects to the police.Taken laws into their hands,have caused problem,to me nobody should blame police or soldiers for their actions,but blame the youths who were not law abiding at all.
