Lai Mohammed Speaks

President Muhammadu Buhari-led government says kidnapping and banditry are not federal offences in Nigeria.

Addressing the media on Tuesday, Information Minister, Lai Mohammed made the comment in response to the statement on insecurity by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

“It is shocking that a party that ruled this nation for all of 16 years does not know that kidnapping and banditry are not federal offences”, he said.

The minister told the party to call out the states, including those being controlled by it, to ensure a rigorous prosecution of arrested kidnappers and bandits.

Father Mbaka Replies Presidency

Recently, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka reacted to the allegation by the Presidency that he attacked President Muhammadu Buhari because he was refused a contract, saying that no amount of oil block would make him trade with his prophetic anointing.

Mbaka said that he is not deterred but rather happy that the truth about the Presidency is revealed.

According to him, the three people referred to as contractors by the Presidency were people that came to help the country fight insecurity during the first tenure of President Buhari.
