Why President Buhari Sacked IGP Adamu – Sahara Reporters

The cabals are afraid secession is coming and anarchy is rising from the South. The immediate task of the new IGP will be to manage the rising insurrection in the Southern region.

President Muhammadu Buhari, influenced by the Aso Rock cabals, decided to end the tenure of the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, due to the embarrassing security deterioration in the South-East and South-South regions, particularly, top sources have revealed to SaharaReporters.

SaharaReporters learnt that some people close to President Muhammadu Buhari also believe Adamu, although coincidentally on a working visit to Imo State, has run out of ideas to deal with the ravaging secessionist groups threatening the unity of the country, the peace in the region and security personnel in the region.

Imo State, where Adamu went on Tuesday, has had the latest and arguably the most daring attacks by gunmen – whom he said were believed to be members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra and the Eastern Security Network – working ultimately towards a secessionist agenda funded by foreign influences.

“That IGP Mohammed Adamu was sacked while on an operational visit to Imo State means a lot. He was in the good books of the Presidency and had only spent about two months out of his three-month extension. But the rising attacks in the South-East and South-South are what every powerbroker around Buhari frowns on and believes Adamu should go because he has run out of ideas.

“The cabals are afraid secession is coming and anarchy is rising from the South. The immediate task of the new IGP will be to manage the rising insurrection in the Southern region,” one of the sources revealed.

“The new IGP is from Yobe State, and he understands insurgency. He was the Head of Force Criminal Investigation Department. He has been given orders from the Presidency and he knows why exactly he has been brought and the urgent tasks before him,” another source stated.

“The attack in Imo was the last straw that broke the camel’s back. There was a conspiracy by some police officers to also sabotage Adamu into being ridiculed. He was no longer popular. The proximity of the prison facility and the state police headquarters that were breached in Owerri to other security agencies leaves so much to be investigated. The attack lasted for more than three hours and the attackers moved more than 1,000 inmates out of the vicinity without being repelled or arrested. That was sabotage and the Presidency was angry that Adamu could no longer manage the police,” the source added.

Muhammed Dingyadi, the Minister of Police Affairs, communicated the president’s replacement of Adamu with DIG Usman Alkali Baba, to State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa on Tuesday.

The president said Alkali should replace Mohammed Adamu with immediate effect.

Buhari had on February 4 extended the tenure of Adamu as the IGP for three months.

Adamu, who was appointed in 2019, had clocked the mandatory 35 years in service on February 1 and was expected to have been replaced by the president.

His tenure extension had elicited widespread criticism and a resultant lawsuit.

Maxwell Opara, a legal practitioner, had taken the IGP to court, contending that by virtue of section 215 of the Nigerian constitution and section 7 of the Nigeria Police Act, 2020, he cannot continue to function as the IGP, having retired as a serving member of the force.

In his defence, the IGP had told the Federal High Court that the new Nigeria Police Act gave him a four-year tenure, which would only lapse in either 2023 or 2024.

Supporting Adamu’s position, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, had stated that the law permitted the IGP to remain in office.

PDP Asks DSS To Probe Pantami, Seeks Minister’s Sack

The Peoples Democratic Party on Sunday called on the Department of State Service to immediately invite the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, for questioning over his alleged affiliations with the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
The Party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, also demanded that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), should immediately sack the minister, given the sensitivity of the issue at stake.

The party said its position was predicated on the heightening concerns in the public space and in the international arena of possible compromises by the communication minister.
It noted that Pantami had access to sensitive government documents and information, in addition to data of all individuals including high profile personalities in the public and private sectors as well as the traditional and faith-based circles.

The statement partly read, “The PDP is particularly worried about allegations in the public suggesting that the minister compromised the NIN registration exercise by giving room for the registration of aliens and invaders from other countries as our citizens.

“The party tasks the DSS to investigate the allegation which has created apprehension, particularly given the rise in banditry and other terrorist activities in our country.
“The PDP urges Nigerians to remain at alert and very sensitive to their environment, while not hesitating in providing useful information to our security agencies in the interest of our nation”

Lagos AAC Supports Judiciary Workers' Nationwide Strike Actions

Press Release

As Judiciary workers march out all over the country to protest Government’s delay in granting the financial autonomy of the judicial arm away from the Executive, Lagos AAC salutes the resilience of JUSUN so far.

For us, the Judiciary workers strike action is a great leap for democracy. The executive arm, by it’s control of the financial life of the Judiciary, demolishes the concept of democracy thereby putting the civil space, democracy and justice on trial.

Our party is being in court over many Social injustices and we practically understand how underrepresented, underfunded, and compromised the Judiciary is. We hereby call on all good people of conscience, our comrades, and sympathizers to support JUSUN in the strike Actions especially the nationwide Protests against erring state governments.
