Massive Protest In Edo Over Presidential Election Results



Protesters yesterday stormed the streets of Benin City, Edo State over the declaration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, as the winner of February 25 presidential election.

The protesters who started in Upper Sakponba, Ikpoba Okha local government area was later dispersed by a combined team of the police and other security agencies.

The leader of one of the protesting groups (Concerned Citizens of Edo State) Comrade Shadrach Udugbai said there are some persons within the Nigerian political block that have turned themselves into principalities and have continually perpetuated all manner of political crimes, raping Nigerians of their right to choose who governs them.

“We have suffered enough and cannot fold our hands to watch this rape on democracy, there are some persons within the Nigerian political block that have turned themselves into principalities and have continually perpetuated all manner of political crimes, raping Nigerians of their right to choose their leaders.

“There is hunger in the land, there is double digits inflation, there is insecurity. Everything starts with getting a good leader and it must be done conclusively. I want INEC to go back to the Electoral Acts that states that before you will be declared as the president of Nigeria, you must secure 25 percent in 2/3 of the 36 states and the federal capital. We are dejected and utterly displeased and need INEC to redress this.”

Also, Comrade Christopher Ojeikhere said, the act by INEC declaring a man who did not win the 2023 presidential election the winner is the height of injustice.

“The act by the Independent National Electoral Commission declaring a man who did not win the 2023 presidential election as the winner is the highest form of injustice.

“This has disenfranchised Nigerians and we want it to be on record for Nigerian people to know, it will be on record for our unborn children to know. It will be on record for democrats all over the world to know that there was a rape of democracy today,” he said.

On her part, Comrade Gift Ajayi said the people were tired of the situation in Nigeria.

“We don’t want ‘Baba-blue’, we don’t want a town hall different from baba-blue, they should give us back our mandate, everyone is tired of what they have done. We are calling on INEC to restore our mandate.”

Breaking: Arsenal suffer Thomas Partey injury worry ahead of crucial Leeds United clash



Thomas Partey will fly back to Arsenal having missed Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Angola on Monday due to injury.

Ghana manager Chris Houghton confirmed Partey, who remained an unused substitute during the 1-1 draw, was deemed too much of a risk to play during his post-match press conference.

“Thomas has some small injury issues,” Houghton said. “We felt it was too big a risk to start him.”

Arsenal are expecting Partey back at London Colney on Tuesday where they will assess the midfielder, who was accompanied to Ghana by Gunners physio Simon Murphy, ahead of this weekend’s home game with Leeds.

The former Atletico Madrid star felt something in his right leg during a training session with his country on Sunday. Sources close to the player insist it is not a hamstring issue and believe he should be fine for Saturday’s game at Emirates Stadium.

Houghton is understood to have taken the decision to leave Partey out on his own. There was no outside pressure from Arsenal, despite the presence of Murphy.

The Gunners medical team will make a decision later in the week on whether the 29-year-old can feature against Leeds. Arsenal travel to Liverpool the following weekend for a huge game at Anfield as they chase their first Premier League title since 2004.

Should Partey miss out this Saturday, Jorginho would most likely be the man to come in and replace him in midfield.

Nicole-Clay said, “He killed Adejoke by strangling her and Oreoluwa by stabbing her to death as defence didn’t raise objection to the admissibility of the confessional statement, there’s no doubt that the defendant confessed to the crimes.

“The defendant couldn’t give an explanation as to what he was doing with all the stolen items he was found with at about 2 am on the date he was arrested.

“This court has found Joseph Ogbu guilty of these heinous crimes and you’re hereby sentenced to death by hanging. May God have mercy on your soul.”

The convict, while gesticulating, begged the court for mercy.

He said in pidgin English, “the mama no die for my presence. I beg for mercy.”
