Gunmen attack Vice President of Nigeria's house - One person killed
| July 31, 2012
Unknown gunmen stormed the village home of Nigeria's Vice President, Namadi Sambo, in Tudun Wada, Zaria, Kaduna State. Some of the mobile policemen guarding the house were injured and a cobbler who was polishing shoes for one of the policemen, was killed. The Vice President's house was being renovated after it had been destroyed during the violence that erupted in Kaduna state after the 2011 presidential elections. The gunmen are reported to have used motorcycles to get to the residence and then started shooting at the policemen. A police spokesman confirmed the attack on the residence and that policemen and a civilian were shot but the attackers were repelled. He said, âYes, there was an attack. But the house is under construction. The policemen are guarding the house. A cobbler was killed by a stray bullet as a result of the exchange of fire between the three gunmen and the police. The cobbler died while one of the policemen was shot in the leg.â There was also a spate of attacks in other parts of the country too. In Sokoto, a suspected suicide bombers launched attacks on the office of the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 10 in Sokoto, Muhtari Ibrahim, and a shop owned by the Police Officer Wivesâ Association, adjacent to the Unguwar Rogo police station, Marina, Sokoto. On Sunday, some gunmen attempted to attack a mosque in Jan Bulo quarters and got engaged in a shoot out with police.

SECT MEMBERS ARRESTED IN KATSINA. Am glad jonathan eledu has been released. Now how about the scores of others arrested and still detained by the SSS without charge?

Like in katsina state, the SSS has recently arrested members of one Hijiriyya sect because of the opinion they hold about their religion. this is akin to the FBI arresting mormons in Utah for holding opinions counter to the mainstream christians. Between 40 to 50 youths were arrested and incarcerated with no intention of charging them to court. Stories coming out indicated that they were being tortured using water boarding techniques etc. of course the SSS learned about water boarding from the CIA.

How preposterous in a democratic dispensation and to think the Katsina state governor is a lawyer really beats me. Freedom of expression is for all of us and the earlier we start fighting for it the better for all of us in the long run. Keep up the good work
