U.S Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton visits Nigeria & Offers Help in Fighting Boko Haram


The United States Secretary of States, Hillary Clintonhas promised to assist Nigeria in fighting the radical Islamic sect. Clinton, who is on an eleven-nations tour of the African continent, was in Nigeria yesterday and met briefly with President Goodluck Jonathan.
According to Zee News, she also said the US is ready to help Nigeria monitor the movement of goods, particularly amunitions and explosive devices trafficked to the Islamic sect through the borders of Nigeria and Cameroon.
An official travelling with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Reuters after the closed door meeting that the United States wants to help Nigeria fight Islamists and sees it as a growing regional menace, but the country cannot rely on military might alone.
“A security strategy is not enough,” the official said. “We know all too well from our own experiences in both Iraq and Afghanistan what can happen if soldiers and police are not operating under appropriate authorities.
“We will encourage them not to use excessive force and to look at this as a law enforcement operation designed to catch perpetrators and bring them to justice. We can help them develop mechanisms for tracking and determining individuals who are likely to be engaged in supporting Boko Haram actively,” he said.
Still on Clinton’s visit, media reports that she had to cancel most of her scheduled meetings due to heightened security challenges in Nigeria. Foreign media reports on Thursday indicated that Clinton would not pass the night in Nigeria because of security fears. She also shelved the traditional ‘Meet and Greet’ with US Embassy staff.
She arrived at the Presidential Villa at 3.50pm in company with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Olugbenga Ashiru; Nigerian Ambassador to US, Ambassador Ade Adefuye, and a battery of security details and foreign journalists.
She left the Presidential Villa at 6.15 pm and headed for the airport and on her way to Accra, Ghana to participate in the state funeral for the late President John Attah Mills.

An unspecified number of people were killed in the attack, Ibrahim Aliyu told AFP.
“They threw explosives and opened fire on the police post in central Gombe. Some of the policemn were inside while others were outside. The explosions were followed by gunfire. There was a shootout between the gunmen and policemen which lasted till 10 pm (2100 GMT),” Aliyu said.
“From a distance, I could see lifeless bodies being loaded into police ambulances,” he said, without being able to give a precise death toll because it was dark.
In the second attack, a resident in Bagadaza district on the outskirts of Gombe, Auwal Nasiru, said from his house he heard a loud explosion coming from a nearby police post.
“There were a lot of gunshots lasting for more than an hour. I cannot say if anybody was hurt or killed in the attack,” he said.

Suspected Boko Haram gunmen had in late February launched coordinated gun attacks on Gombe prison and a nearby police station during which 14 people, including policemen, were killed.

Photo: Fake Police Recruiters Busted In Kumasi

SOME UNSUSPECTING residents in and around Kumasi metropolis have fallen victim to the fraudulent activities of two young men who allegedly posed as police officer and human resource agent for their respective organisations in a phony enlistment programme.
The suspects, Kwadwo Afriyie, 45, a tile layer, and Mark Yama, 26, unemployed, are currently in police custody, assisting with investigations. They were arrested on August 3, 2012 separately at their hideouts in the city when information about their fraudulent activities got to the police.
DCOP Augustine Gyening, Ashanti Regional Police Commander, told journalists that Kwadwo Afriyie, who posed as a police officer, had in his possession some forged documents bearing the Ghana Police Service (GPS) logo.
According to him, the suspect used the said documents in collecting various sums of money from his unsuspecting victims under the pretext of facilitating their recruitment into the service.
The police chief stated that the fake police officer, in one of his fraudulent moves to convince people to apply for the enlistment, contacted a complainant to pay him GH¢1,200 to ensure an easy sail into the service.
The complainant, who became suspicious, reported the matter to the police, leading to the arrest of the suspect, DCOP Gyening indicated. The police found on him fake police medical and recruitment forms, a stamp, and a letter embossed with GPS logo purporting to postpone police training at the various centres across the country, due to President John Atta Mills’ death.
In the case of suspect Mark Yama, he made a representation to his victims as a human resource agent of a supposed Cable Gold Consult Internet in Kumasi, claiming to recruit qualified persons as marketing officers for the said company.
The suspect was said to have managed to swindle victims of his scam sums of money as an interview fee that was pegged at GH¢15 per head. After collecting their monies, DCOP Gyening said, the suspect could not take the victims to where the supposed company was located when he met them at the Adehyeman Gardens area in Kumasi.
He disclosed that the fraudster had asked the victims, who were from different parts of the country, to converge on the Adehyeman Gardens area to be taken to their will-be employers for orientation.The police commander intimated that the victims became suspicious of Mark Yama and alerted the police about his activity, leading to his arrest.
The suspect admitted to the offence during police interrogation, indicating that he was working for a non-existing company, said DCOP Gyening. Yama told police investigators he went into the fraudulent business after falling victim to it once when he completed school and was looking for a job.

Winner of the 2010 edition of Big Brother Africa, Uti Nwachukwu, says stories about him being gay or in relationships with older women are nothing but bad press. According to him, ‘In Nigeria, once you are young in the entertainment industry and you are doing well, next thing they tag you with is that you are either dating an older woman or that you are gay.’
Uti, who says he’s currently in a relationship, says he’s ‘a very passionate person. When I love, I do more than the average person. I could be a bit possessive and all that’, he said.
On his experience in Big Brother All Stars, he described the reality show as a platform to correct the mistakes he made during BBA 3, in which he was a contestant: ‘Big Brother 3 was easy but I was lucky to get a second chance…but for the BBA All Stars, they didn’t just bring back anybody, they brought back the best from Seasons 1-4, these were people who had come out of the show and people had pointed out their mistakes to them. I won’t lie by saying I didn’t have my own strategies.’
Uti, who recently celebrated his 30th birthday, is presently a co-presenter on Jara, a showbiz programme aired on DSTV.
