Shehu Sani Confirms Attack On Kaduna Church, Reveals Number Killed, Kidnapped

Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has condemned Sunday’s attack on Haske Baptist Church in Chikun local government area of Kaduna State.

It was gathered that the bandits abducted some worshippers, while others sustained injuries.

This is coming after corpses of three students of Greenfield University a private institution in Chukun LGA, were found three days after their abduction.

The former Senator while condemning the attack, revealed in a statement on his Twitter account that two worshippers were killed while six others were abducted by gunmen who stormed the church on Sunday morning.

He added that over seventy people have been kidnapped from the axis in the last one week.

Naija News earlier reported the gunmen attack on worshippers in Chikun LGA of Kaduna State.

Confirming the report, Sani wrote on Twitter:

The attacks and abduction on Haske Baptist Church in Chikun LG, Kaduna State early this morning is tragic and condemnable. I called and confirmed that two were killed and Six were kidnapped. Over 70 people are in the hands of kidnappers within that axis in the last one week.”

The new development comes barely 48 hours after bandits who stormed Greenfield University, a privately-owned tertiary institution in Kaduna State, and kidnapped some students, killed three of the students abducted on Wednesday.

The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs in Kaduna State, Samuel Aruwan in a statement released on Friday, said the remains of the three students were found at Kwanar Bature village, a location close to the university, on Friday.

Meanwhile, Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka has once again called on President Muhammadu Buhari to wake up from his slumber and realize all is not well with Nigeria.

Soyinka in a statement on Saturday titled “The endless Martyrdom of youth,” called on the Buhari-led administration to seek help in curbing the many challenges facing Nigeria as a country.

He noted that the heart of many Nigerians are already broken and the people live in despair, unsure of what lies in stock for them in the future as everything looks bleak.

Soyinka noted that Nigeria is already getting overstretched and desperately in need of solutions as the country with every passing minute tends towards a failing state.

He reiterated the need to stop playing politics with the future of the youths of the country but to sit tight and find solutions to ravaging problems threatening to tear the country apart.

Nnamdi Kanu replies Aisha Yesufu, Shehu Sani, others over ESN’s attack

Kanu, on Sunday, had shared on his Facebook page how the ESN operatives invaded the camp of some herdsmen in Isiukwuato, Abia State, chasing them, burning their houses and killing their cows.

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has hit back at human rights activist and co-convener of #BringBackOurGirls Movement, Aisha Yesufu, alongside former Nigerian senator Shehu Sani for condemning the actions of the Eastern Security Network operatives driving Fulani herdsmen out of Isiukwuato in Abia State.

Kanu, on Sunday, had shared on his Facebook page how the ESN operatives invaded the camp of some herdsmen in Isiukwuato, Abia State, chasing them, burning their houses and killing their cows.

The IPOB leader also quoted alongside the footage, “Video of men at work last night across all the towns and villages of the old Bende Division, especially Isiukwuato.”

“ESN has commenced the combing of parts of Isiukwuato forests last night and engagement with the enemy is ongoing and will continue until they no longer present a threat to our communities along that axis…” he added, sternly cautioning the herders.

In response to Kanu’s video, Yesufu, on her Twitter handle, labelled the occurrence as highly unacceptable and adding that that no one has control of violence.

“This is absolutely not acceptable. We cannot have security outfits taking laws into their own hands & maiming, killing & destroying properties. This is not acceptable. We must always remember no one has a monopoly of violence and intolerance and we can all be mad. Let the law guide us!” She tweeted.

Similarly, Sani, on his Facebook page, wrote “The unprovoked attacks on the Fulani cattle rearers and their cattle in Abia State is unreservedly a condemnable act.

“No group of individuals should be allowed to take the laws into their hands for the sake of peace, unity and stability of the country.

“The Federal Government and the Northern states must step up action and commence the grazing or ranching programs that will resettle the herdsmen and their cattle in the north.”

Kanu, in a statement issued on Monday, through the IPOB media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, said, “If you are one of the #Zoo animals suffering from an advanced form of Stockholm Syndrome, may it kill you there. We in the East are not, have never been and can never be slaves to any bunch of retards. Ask the British.

“We won’t tolerate any iota of killer Fulani herdsmen menace in the East. You may be comfortable with your wretched Fulanised existence where you are but we won’t live with that rubbish in the land of the Rising Sun. Where were you when our people were being slaughtered, raped and kidnapped in Isiukwuato? Talkative lunatics like Aisha Yusuf.”

In his statement, he also noted that ESN would start the implementation of its own anti-open grazing law in the South-East, as earlier said last week.

“In less than two weeks, #ESN will commence the full enforcement of Nigeria’s Anti-Grazing Law in the East. Turn into a cow then and see what shall become of you. You are about to understand how determined we are. You have the temerity to talk about the monopoly of violence?

“All these years Fulani murderers in your #Zoo army and police uniform have been killing Biafrans, what did you fools say? Why did you not open your stinking mouth to condemn your Alimajiri Hisbah Police? Did you not see them publicly destroying beverages worth billions of naira belonging to Biafrans, in full view of the public? Cowards and hypocrites!

“The era of Biafrans crying and lamenting the EU and UN has come and gone. The Dragon Flag has been raised! If you don’t know what it means, go and ask. By the time what is about to happen is concluded, you will see Somalia as paradise on earth.

“Yap all you like, hire every inch column of #Zoo newspaper as you like, there is no going back. You #Zoo animals are about to witness the type of madness you never knew existed. Aisha Yusuf, be very careful.”

Leave Bishop Kukah, fight bandits – Shehu Sani to Northern youths

Shehu Sani, former Kaduna Central Senator, has called on youths in the North to fight bandits and leave Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese, Mathew Kukah alone.

In his Christmas message, Kukah had accused President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration of nepotism.

He claimed that Buhari had sacrificed the dreams of Nigerians on the alter of nepotism and Northern hegemony.

But, the Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, accused the clergyman of attempting to destroy the quest for national integration by instigating violence.

CNG said Kukah was using religion to cause disharmony and facilitate the further emasculation of Northern Nigerian Muslims.

However, Sani, in a tweet wrote: “My Dear Northern Youths; leave the Kukah in Sokoto and fight the Bandits in your shokoto.”

Shehu Sani Speaks The Mind Of Nigerians, See What He Just Tweeted That Attracted A Lot Of Reactions

It’s with no doubt that Nigerians are still yet to recover from the unfortunate incident that has bedeviled it some weeks back.

Following the peaceful protest that was embarked upon by the Nigerian youths calling on the government of the day to disband the police arm called SARS and to also bring to an end the era of bad governance which turned violent as it was hijacked by hoodlums and hence resulting in the destruction of lives and properties.

Even though many Nigerian have blamed the president for being so reluctant in addressing the protesters early enough to avert what happened.

As if that was not enough, after normalcy and calm has returned, reports has it that the government have sent security agencies to hunt after all those who were at the forefront of the protest, arrest and detain them.

Unfortunately the account of some of those who lead the protests have been frozen and if care is not taken, this act by the government may result in another second wave of protest.

A former senator in person of Shehu Sani has always been on the twitter platform constantly sharing his views and opinions on the different matters including the SARS had earlier today taken to his handle to dropped a very important message that I guess is saying the mind of millions of Nigerians.

Check out his tweet below:

“Many of those encouraging or defending the arrest and prosecution of the ENDSARS protesters today would either regret their action or disassociate themselves from it beyond 2023. We have been through this history with those who sided with prosecution during military regime”.

Mass protest in Nigeria goes beyond End SARS movement – Senator Shehu Sanni.

Former Senator from Kaduna State and a Human Right Activist, Senator Shehu Sanni has said the mass protest across the Nation goes beyond end SARS.

He noted that the protest against SARS is a revolutionary uprising against bad governance, insecurity, negligence and toying with the people’s intelligence.

Speaking at a gathering in Minna Shehu argued that as it is, nobody can stop the protest while lamenting at the poor manner of handling the nation’s affairs by the political officeholders.

The lawmaker also insisted that the protest is against the system that has failed the nation.

Sanni, however, called on the youths in the country to take the protest to wards and ensure they maintain it’s tempo.

“The youths have spoken loud and clear and their voices must be heard as the protest is a rise against the system. I urge them to sustain the tempo of the protest. It is the only way to salvage their future and they should not spare anybody in the protest,” he insisted.

He continued, “the handling of the nation’s affair by the policymakers and officeholders has continued to retard the development of Nigeria. They have made it impossible for the people of the country to move to advance level.”

Sanni decried the way and manner the public sectors have been destroyed by political office holders for their selfish gains, maintaining that they have personalised governance and have made it impossible for children of the poor to attain any position in the country.

According to him, “How can a nation as ours with such huge wealth have such huge poverty level?, you can’t get a job in Nigeria if you are a son of nobody, you can’t be elected in Nigeria if you don’t have money and Godfather, so these must stop.”

As the organized labour prepare for a massive national industrial action to protest the recent hike in PMS price as well as the increase in electricity tariff.

Nigerians have been called upon to come out en masse and participate fully in the national strike in order to force the federal government to reverse the price and tariff.

The call for action was made by a former Senator in the 8th National Assembly from Kaduna State, Senator Shehu Sani while speaking at the commissioning ceremony of the Secretariat of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, Federal Polytechnic Bauchi chapter. 

The outspoken Senator Shehu Sani said that massive participation of Nigerians in the strike became necessary as the move was for the interest of all Nigerians as well as for the future of the country.

The ASUP Secretariat which was named after late  Senator Ali Wakili a Senator in the 8th National Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani noted that, the late lawmaker has worked assiduously towards ensuring good governance, justice and advancement of democracy in Nigeria.

The activist cum politician said that, “In the next few days, the Nigerian Labour Congress will be launching a national protest and strike on behalf of them I call on each and every one of you to respect the strike, because it is for all Nigerians and for the future of the country and it is a strong challenge to the leadership that have forgotten how they came into office.”

He added that, ” I thank the leadership of ASUP in this Polytechnic for recognizing the contribution of late Ali Wakili, the person who worked assiduously for the development of our country and one who have suffered a lot in the hands of people who presided over the affairs of Bauchi state in the past.”

Shehu Sani added that, “It is a honor and privilege for me to be here invited to witness the first attempt made by a group of academics to honor Distinguished Senator in the person of late Ali Wakili.  I am here as his colleague in the 8th  National Assembly.”

On the forthcoming celebration of the 60th Independence Anniversary of Nigeria, the former Senator stressed the need for all hands to be on deck to tackle the numerous challenges confronting the country and militating against its development. 

The former Senator also said that, “In the next few days, Nigeria will be 60 years as an independence nation and it is a time for us to appreciate and carefully analyze the successes, failure and the challenges we faced as a nation and as a people.”

“If you look back to history to the manifestos of politicians in the pre-independence Nigeria, their campaigns have been always on infrastructure, light, water and education and I believe in 2023, the campaign of the next politicians will be on the same issues. I think we should accept the fact that, Nigeria is not where is supposed to be, where our aspirations and needs as people have not been made by our leaders,” he further said.
