Maiha doesn’t sale life at N1m to N100 killer policeman, accomplices – Groups react
By Adamu Mohammed Yola
The elders, the women and the youth in the entire Maiha local government area have reacted to a cultist like transaction in mortgaging a case against N100 killer police corporal for N1,000,000
It was on Monday, 1st June, 2020 when a promising 20 years old commercial tricyclist by name Arabo Dauda Tambajam was killed by a seeming drunk on duty police corporal Richard Japheth for refusing to pay N100 the alleged criminal mounted at a checkpoint in Maiha LGA of Adamawa state.
Tambajam was the breadwinner of the family. He cartered for his parents who are medically unfit and paid for his school fees, before a criminal could put a bullet for N100 to end his life as was alleged.
Maiha as a community, demanded for justice lest the aggrieved youth, translating the Old Testament, resort to jungle justice for “an eye for an eye”.
It is a taboo hence unforgiving, for a criminal, especially one who is paid to keep peace and ensure security, to kill innocent person(s) in the entire Maiha local government area.
The youth lamented that the rapists and murderers are used to deploy the rather seeming inhuman services of some heartless, good for nothing, bourgeois modernist escapists from the bereaved family or pseudo representatives in the community, to frustrate justice from taking its course for a miserable amount.
“We reject this transaction. N1m isn’t the recommended amount to compensate for life. The amount currently stands at about N50m.
“If N1m is paid, the family of the deceased innocent shouldn’t be N49m shortchanged. There must be the balance to be settled,” a youth group said.
Some of the humiliated, embarrassed and aggrieved members of the late Arabo family who were technically not consulted and/or invited to the negotiation that arrived at paltry N1m as compensation for life, are considering returning the money to the parents of the N100 killer police corporal and allow justice to take its course.
“We’re considering returning the money – if at all is was given – to let the parents of the murderer be courageous to allow their son tried for culpable homicide offence before the law.
“We reject, if at all there is, the move to obtain a court affidavit, withdrawing the case of culpable homicide as it does not reflect the collective position of the community standing for our dear Arabo.
“We’re surprised and embarrassed to hear the Executive Chairman of our local government, who stands by, with and for us in the case, saying that he was not consulted on the transaction as much as other stakeholders like the Human Rights groups.
“Our lawyer wasn’t also invited and the transaction didn’t even take place in either of our family houses or the LGA Secretariat. What a go between! So, you see, the family wasn’t adequately represented, hence null and void,” they said.
Recall the New Zealand mass shooting in a Mosque on Friday March 15, 2019, when a 28-year old trigger happy Brenton Tarrant decided to end the lives of the worshippers. He was eventually arrested. His parents did not only condemn his action, they also demanded that law should take its course rather than appealing for clemency.

NLC NCSO, Concerned citizens Urged Military to change approach in the fight against Boko Haram

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Network for Civil Society Organisatio, (NCSO) and Concerned Citizen(CC) have called on the Armed Force to change its approach and strategy in the fight against insurgency in the Northeast and other security challenges access the nation.
The group at a world Press conference, read by the Borno state Chairman of the NLC, Comrade Bulama Abiso held at the NLC House Maiduguri on Tuesday said ” we are calling for total overhaul of the process, system and strategies, there is no harm in seeking for external support, if that is what is needed to bring lasting peace to the region.”
” We also call for the revisiting nd remodeling of the approach by the “Operation Safe Corridor” on Deradicalization and reintegration of ex combatants back to the communities and stakeholders should be consulted throughout the process*, the group added.
The leader of the group said “It is widely believed that, the inability of the security forces to halt the insurgents, were because of presumably due to lack of will on the part of the Armed Forces to bring to an end to this war, the culture of mutual mistrust within various security establishments and between the security and the victim community to divulge information on Boko Haram insurgents and commercial benefits bring driven by some actors,” .
He said ” the Boko Haram insurgency has lingered for over 10 years there is need for restrategizing the approach of counter insurgency and if need be seek for helping hand from countries that has expirience in the fight against terrorism and Insurgency.”
” We urge the Nigerian Armed Forces to restrategize in their approaches of countering terrorism and securing the lives and property of the citizen as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This concern became pertinent due to the recent attacked on the Governor Babagana Zulum’,s convoy, abduction and killings of aid workers and explosion of Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in communities once regarded as safe within Maiduguri metropolis and beyond”, Abiso further stressed.
The group further called for deliberate enhanced Civil military relations with the supports of the locals to completely defeat the Insurgents, adding that the military should also be more proactive in taking the wat to the Insurgents hidoutes.
Comrade Bulama Abiso said ” it has become frustrating to all Borno citizens at home and in diaspora on why the Armed forces of Nigeria could not contained the menace of the terrorists group for more than a decade. When one compares the expanditires of government against the result achieved by the military in the counter insurgency operations. It is not commesorate to the realities on ground”.
The group while strongly concerning the attacked on the Governor’s convoy in Mile 4 along Baga route, sympathised with the Governor over the Incidence and demanded a transparent investigations into the matter, stressing that if the safety and set ofthe number one citizen in the state is not guaranteed, then what about the citizens who regularly ply the highway to earn a living.
Monarchy in Maiha Idi the Impostor Is Summoned Before the Law
Monarchy In Maiha: Idi The Impostor Is Summoned Before The Law
By Adamu Mohammed Dodo Yola
Preparations for mischief is ongoing in Maiha. The blinded by ignorance gullible followers, are told to clear thr scene with a view to intimidate a peaceful community who insist that it is an abomination to be led by an impostor; “a butterfly who calls himself a bird,” moralising Ola Rotimi in “The Gods Are Not To Blame.”
The impostor, in his figment of blurred imagination, obnoxiously considered himself a district head of Jalingo-Maiha but only during festive periods and uninvited occasions.
The moment the celebration is over, the impostor picks and packs his parked baggage of garbage and departs, rather unceremoniously as he crept in, abandoning his gullible followers to rot till another season and/or a session of mischief; instigating anarchy by means of contempt of court and executive orders.
It is now another season for the impostor to showcase his mischievousness; Jalingo-Maiha is bubbling his with his insignificant gullible followers, preparing the stage, intimidating the community, for a disruptive Sallah celebration.
It is learnt from the gullible followers’ narrativisation that the impostor has gone to seek a granted permission from the Mubi Emirate Council, guaranteeing his outing as district on Eid day.
However, this time, the Eid will eventually not be a Mubarak to the impostor and followers.
This time, the impostor is not to eat his cake and have it, as he is summoned before the uncompromising law, on criminal charges.
Can a criminal ever be a district head, especially of Jalingo-maiha known for adopting Makkah and Madinah models put together?
The fetish, the “bori mediumship” negotiators between evil spirits considered as their demigods and the people that honour by patronising them for their luck, ought to have a rethink this time
The Bible will give a lone choice between either the Mammon or the God
The Qur’an has definitely defined being both with the Mammon and God at the same time as an act of hypocrisy beyond heresy.
The Upper Area Court Yola, Adamawa state, northeast Nigeria, has on Tuesday, July 28, 2020, summoned Idi Usman Shehu and three others to answer charges of criminal conspiracy and inciting disturbances for anarchy that have resulted hurting so many hearts with others sustaining degrees of injuries in Jalingo-Maiha on a Friday during Jumu’at prayer.
Idi and three others are summoned to appear in person, on Thursday, July, 30, 2020 at 8:30am to answer the criminal charges filed against them by the Commissioner of Police.
His gullible followers think that the impostor has a royal immunity before the law; therefore, his continued romance with the contempt of court and executive orders will not be charged even while he is on bail.
Does it not amount to jumping bail when Idi is restrained by the court and executive orders, from parading himself as district head of Jalingo-Maiha, from going to and participating in any activity in Maiha, yet he arrogantly snubs the orders?
Thursday may determine between either to prison or for a freedom to continue romancing with the contempt of court and executive orders in Jalingo-Maiha.
A courageous king or criminal does not in tears plead for clemency against his tragic flaws before the law; he faces it squarely.
Only the coward cries when his arrogance is subdued.
