According to a report by Sun News, the man, Ocholli Edicha,  suspected to be the gang leader of those who led some political thugs to burn Mrs Salome Achejuigu, the PDP women leader to death has confessed that they carried out the dastardly act because he had been nursing a grudge against the woman before the Nov 16th governorship election.

Ocholli who spoke with newsmen shortly after been paraded on Wednesday confessed that he was an All progressive Congress thug who mobilized some other thugs from Ejule in ofu local government area to set the house on fire and reigned mayhem shortly after the election.

It will be recalled that the victim, Mrs Salome Abuh, the Women Leader of Wada Aro Campaign Council, Ochadamu Ward, was said to have been burnt alive in her personal residence when she was resting after treatment from an injury on election day

While reacting to the banal act, the spokesman, Wada/Aro Campaign Council, Faruk Adejoh-Audu had claimed the thugs, shooting sporadically, arrived Hon (Mrs) Abuh’s house at about 2pm on the fateful day and surrounded the house, bolting every exit and escape from outside.

“They then poured petrol on the building and set it ablaze as other terrorized villagers watched from hiding. She reportedly attempted to escape through a window but was prevented by the metal burglary proof and gun shots with bullets raining in her direction.

“The blood thirsty thugs waited, shooting and watching with relish while Mrs Abuh cried from inside the inferno until her voice died out.
they reportedly left only when the entire house and Mrs Abuh had been burnt to ashes”
 he was quoted to have said

But the police commissioner, Hakeem Busari while parading the suspect with five others said the whole crisis erupted when there was a misunderstanding between one Gowon Simon and one Awolu Zekeri which led to the death of the later.

He said the death of Zekeri led to the mobilization of some angry youths in the town who moved to the house of one Simon Abu who is an uncle to the suspect where the 60 years woman was burnt to death.

The CP who said other suspects are on the run however said as soon as investigation is completed, the suspects will be arraigned in court.

He gave the names of other suspects who claimed they were only arrested differently as armed robbers and not killers of Mrs Abuh as Adamu Haruna, Onu Egbunu, Musa Alido, Attai Haruna and Attah Eje.

Mrs Abuh was buried last Saturday amidst tears.

ISWAP terrorists kill two Nigerian soldiers, policeman in new video
The Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) has released a new video showing the execution of two Nigerian soldiers and a policeman. According to Channels TV, information provided in the video which was dated December 8th, showed that those killed were reportedly abducted at a fake checkpoint in Benisheikh, a village seventy kilometers west of Maiduguri, Borno State capital.

The executed security agents displayed their identity cards and introduced themselves as a mobile police sergeant, as well as a sergeant and a private soldier of the Nigerian Army.

Before carrying out the execution, a masked man backing a river believed to be around the Lake Chad area spoke in Hausa language. He threatened that the group would carry out ‘massive attacks’ on military formations and ambushes on the highways in the region.

“We are saying to the soldiers of Nigeria, we will never spare those fighting people practicing the religion of Allah. Because of that we shall attack your barracks, wallahi we shall block you on your roads. The story is, what you hear is not what you see; what lies ahead is tougher and uglier than this, Allahu Akbar,” the masked terrorist said

Shortly before they were killed, the security personnel narrated that they were abducted from a village located few kilometers to Maiduguri.

Last week, ISWAP in a statement released, claimed that it abducted 14 “prisoners” on the same road, six of which were soldiers, two staff of the Red Cross and six others. 

The police and Army authorities are yet to confirm the identities of the officers killed in the latest video.

When contacted, the spokesperson for Operation Lafiya Dole, Colonel Ado Isa, said he is not aware of the attack or the video.

Cardi B gives her opinion on feminism as she covers Vogue magazine with her daughter

Cardi B gives her opinion on feminism as she covers Vogue magazine with her daughter
Cardi B, who is one of the four stars to cover Vogue magazine's January 2020 issues, gave her opinion on feminism. She also explained why she got back with Offset after they broke up.

On feminism, Cardi, whose birth name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, said: "Women always want to talk about feminism and supporting everybody, except if it doesn't fit your category of what to support.

"Certain women that claim they are feminists only think that a certain type of woman should represent that. Like oh, you have to have a college degree, and you have to fu**ing be, practically, like, a senator, or Mother Teresa, or a Christian holy woman. No, you do not.

"Feminism means being equal to a man, and I am."

On why she got back with Offset after she separated from him for cheating on her last year, she said: "Everybody has issues. I believe in forgiveness. I prayed on it. Me and my husband, we prayed on it. We had priests come to us. And we just came to an understanding like, bro, it’s really us against the world."

She added: "He has my back for everything, I have his back for everything, so when you cheat, you’re betraying the person that has your back the most. Why would you do that? We have come to a clear understanding. For me, monogamy is the only way. I’ll beat your a-- if you cheat on me.

Addressing fans who weren't in support of her and Offset getting back together, she said: "When me and my husband got into our issues — you know, he cheated and everything — and I decided to stay with him and work together with him, a lot of people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me.

"But it’s real-life sh**. If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you’re depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you’re not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation. Then, if you get back with them, it’s like, how could you? You let all of us down."
