Two policemen killed, as gunmen ambush APC aspirant for Borno South

 


     On Sunday, Alhaji Idris Durkwa, a frontline aspirant for the Southern Borno senatorial district on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, narrowly escaped death when unknown gunmen ambushed his convoy with his teaming supporters and opened fire along the Maiduguri-Damaturu road, killing two policemen and injuring several others. 


According to sources, the gunmen suspected the senatorial aspirant was in the convoy traveling from Damaturu to Maiduguri in the morning. 



Unfortunately, he was said to be in Maiduguri at the time of the incident to meet with his supporters. 


It was also learned that the vehicle in which he (Durkwa) usually travels had been shattered by more than 12 bullets. 

     Reliable sources indicated that that, this attack is lending credence to the belief that some desperate individuals feel threatened by his aspiration to the senate seat.

When contacted on phone, a close associate to Dukrwa who did not want his name mentioned in the print confirmed the incident.

“Yesterday (Sunday) at about 10a.m., a convoy of Durkwa conveying his supporters was attacked between Jakana and Mainok villages along Maiduguri-Damaturu Highway.

“Two policemen attached to the convoy were killed while several others sustained various degrees of injuries who are currently receiving treatment in Maiduguri.

“I am saddened that the attack should happened to his convoy, knowing fully well that the road has been relatively safe for a long time.

“And I wonder why it should happened now, when even the military has declared publicly that the road is safe.

“I therefore condole the families of the deceased policemen, and wish those injured speedy recovery.”

Meanwhile, tension has been heightened among the political camps of the various contestants, as everybody is revisiting plans of their movement.

We pray you succeed, Emir of Damaturu tells Osinbajo

 


The Emir of Damaturu, Hashimi II El-Kanemi, says the emirate will support and join Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in prayers so that God will make him the president of Nigeria in 2023.

El-Kanemi made this pledge while receiving the vice president who was on a courtesy visit to his palace on  Monday in Damaturu, Yobe.

       Osinbajo was in Yobe in continuation of his consultations with All Progressives Congress(APC) stakeholders ahead of the parties presidential primaries.   

The traditional ruler said that the vice president’s visit to the palace is an indication of the respect he has for the traditional institution.

    “What we are expecting is continuity; to build upon what is established and this is where we are heading to.

“To appreciate President Muhammadu Buhari; when you bring the issue of security, our governor will bear witness over what went on in this state; what transpired in this state; but when Buhari came on board, things became better; things changed for the better.

     “We have witnessed relative peace in this government; President Buhari has done a lot for this great country; he is doing a lot despite all challenges; we sincerely need to appreciate your leadership.

“We will, by the Grace of God, join you; support you in prayers and support you in all aspects to see that you excel; and at the end of the day, we pray that God will make you the president of this great country, Nigeria.”

      El-kanemi commended Gov. Mala Buni, whom he said had creditably acquitted himself in governing the state while maintaining a cordial relationship with the traditional institution.

Earlier in his remark, Osinbajo, who was accompanied by Gov. Buni, thanked the traditional ruler for the warm welcome accorded him.

        The vice president asked El-Kanemi to thank the governor who has consistently been a good friend, supporter and ally; and for what he had done  for the party.

“But today, I am here to meet with the delegates of our party, APC,  who will be electing or nominating the presidential candidate of our party; the flag bearer of our party for the forthcoming elections in 2023.

“I put myself forward as a presidential aspirant and this is after having served as vice president for the past seven years under President Buhari and in that capacity as vice president, I have worked very closely with the president.

“The president has given me all the exposure that any vice president could ask for.

“As a matter of fact, I must say that I doubt if there is any vice president who has had the number of responsibilities, the exposure both local and international that the president has given me in my service as vice president.

“I have also acted as president when the president was away on either medical vacation or vacation.”

He said that in the past seven years, he had learnt a lot about governing a diverse and complex country like Nigeria.

According to him, Nigeria is a country that has several ethic groups; a country that has different faith but  a country that must stay united.

“So, I am, by the Grace of God, prepared for service and the only reason why I offered myself is because I truly want to serve this country.

“And I will ensure that I work with others who have the same objectives to ensure that this country is truly great.

“There are many challenges, security, economy, but these are challenges that are surmountable and they are challenges that we are working day and night to surmount.

“I will say that if the vice president takes over from the president, it is obviously possible to hit the ground running from day one; there will be no need to be looking for the files all over the place,” he said.

Osinbajo prayed God to grant the traditional ruler long life and long reign to see the Nigeria of his dreams.
