[ Masterweb Reports: Intersociety reports ] - (Intersociety: Onitsha Nigeria, 26th of September 2016)-It shocks and alarms us on continuous basis concerning orchestrated and systematic stigmatization and criminalization of the citizens’ rights to freedom of association, expression, movement, personal liberty and fair hearing by the Nigerian Security Forces and unprofessional print media; particularly since the inception of the Government of Gen Muhammadu Buhari. Despite the enshrinement of these fundamental human rights and their justiciability (S.46), on account of their containment in Sections 40, 39, 41, 35 and 36 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999, as amended in 2011; they have suffered gross brutalization and bastardization in the hands of the Security Forces and unprofessional print media.
 
 
Apart from the above constitutional guarantees and protections in the 1999 Constitution, they are also fully recognized by the African Charter on Human & Peoples’ Rights of 1981 (ACHPR), the UN Covenant on Civil & Political Rights of 1976 (ICCPR) as well as the Basic Standard of International Law& Humanitarian Principles of the United Nations; a driving force of the Principles and Purposes of the United Nations. The latter not only recognize the rights of the citizens of the Member-States of the UN including Nigeria, to peaceful assemblies and expressions, but also outline ways through which their exercises shall be managed or responded to by security forces.  As all are aware, Nigeria ratified ICCPR in 1993 and ratified and domesticated the ACHPR in 1983. Nigeria is also bound morally and legally by the Fundamental Rules of the United Nations including the basic standard of International Law and Humanitarian Principles as well as the Purposes and Purposes of the United Nations.
 
 
For instance,  under the ten basic standards of international law made mandatory for security forces of Member-States of the UN for the management of civil assemblies and free speeches as well as arrest, detention and prosecution of citizens accused of commission of municipal crimes of whatever code definition; following key directives are provided: (1) treat all victims of crime with compassion and respect, and in particular protect their safety and privacy; (2) avoid using force when policing unlawful but nonviolent assemblies; (3) when dispersing violent assemblies, use force only to the minimum extent necessary (i.e. in line with proportionate use of force and avoidance of application of excessive force on non-military necessity).
 
 
Others are (4) arrest no person unless there are legal wounds to do so and ensure that the arrest is carried out in accordance with lawful arrest procedures; (5) ensure that all detainees have access, promptly after arrest to their families and legal representatives and to any necessary medical assistance; (6) all detainees must be treated humanly and humanely and avoid infliction, instigation or toleration of any act of torture in any circumstance and refuse to obey order to do so; (7) do not carry out, order or cover up extrajudicial executions  or disappearances of the arrested or the detained  and refuse to obey any order to do so; (8) etc.
 
 
Sadly, these sacred international rules and obligations and their sister provisions in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999, as amended in 2011; are not only observed in gross breach by the security forces and unprofessional print media in Nigeria but have also faced systematic patterns of stigmatization and criminalization to the extent they are now classified as military necessity, warranting militarized and violent responses or actions including mass murder or massacre of proponents of peaceful assemblies and free speeches and injuring of others.
 
 
Others are: unjust arrest and detention of unarmed and innocent citizens without trial; indiscriminate pre-trial or custodial killings, torture and disappearances. Today, the Nigerian Security Forces, fully backed by a presidential death code issued by President Muhammadu Buhari; erroneously and mischievously tagged: rules of engagement of the Nigerian Armed Forces; place high security priority on peaceful assemblies and free speeches than the activities of terrorist organizations or violent armed opposition groups like Boko Haram and Fulani Janjaweed (Herdsmen).
 
 
As a matter of fact, the Buhari Administration does not consider the violent activities of the Fulani Janjaweed, which lead to massacre of hundreds of unarmed and innocent Nigerians almost on weekly bsis as a public security threat requiring military actions under the UN’s Rules of Engagement or the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and their Four Protocols of 1977.
 
 
The most abominable and unforgiving of it all is the Nigerian Security Forces deliberate application or use of war-time military approaches or methodologies in managing civil assemblies and democratic free speeches. For the purpose of setting the records straight, civil or peaceful assemblies and free speeches, no matter their intents, are purely non-military or non-war or nonviolent affairs or conducts and are totally devoid of military necessity, warranting State violent approaches or use of force, not to talk of excessive application of State force or violence.
 
 
That is to say that the Rules of Engagement of the UN and International Law recognition and definition are strictly applied in war or conflict situations. Just like we have severally educated publicly, the Rules of Engagement, which are presently corrupted and bastardized by the Nigerian Armed Forces (including the Army, Police, DSS, Navy, etc), are strictly applicable in international or internal armed conflict; otherwise referred to as complex humanitarian emergencies.  
 
 
Key features of the internationally standardized Rules of Engagement, strictly applied in war or conflict situations  are (1) legitimate use of force, (2) proportionality of use of force, (3) legitimate self defense, (4) treatment of prisoners of war or conflict, (5) avoidance of attacks on non-military necessity or civilian targets or properties, (6) avoidance of attacks on civilians or non-combatants, (7) treatment of the wounded, (8) avoidance of attacks on culture symbols or places of worship, (9) avoidance of attacks on humanitarian agencies and personnel/human rights activists; (10) treatment of other peoples of the war (i.e. spies and journalists).
 
 
The Rules of Engagement are the integral part of the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and their Four Protocols of 1977; and originally came from the three war doctrines of Jus Ad Bellum (justification and ground for going to war); Jus In Bellum (ethical rules of conduct during war, such as ethical standards expected of soldiers in wartime or rules of engagement); and Jus Post Bellum (regulations on how wars are ended and facilitation of transition from war to peace).
 
 
Another name for the Rules of Engagement is the Standard Rules for the People of the War. The People of the War here literally means parties in the conflict who occupy the conflict areas such as fighting parties, non-combatants or civilians as well as other third parties playing direct or indirect roles in the conflict.
 
 
In all, non-war civil conducts such as civil or peaceful assemblies and democratic free speeches have nothing whatsoever to do with the so called Rules of Engagement of the Nigerian Armed Forces neither do they have any to do with the UN and International Law’s standardized Rules of Engagement. In managing civil assemblies and democratic free speeches for whatever intents, use of military actions including mass shooting and wounding of protesters and militarization of the protesting entities are out-rightly and inexcusably forbidden.
 
 
Such civil assemblies and free speeches even if they turn non-lethally violent are managed under UN System or within the confines of international best practices using modern non-lethal crowd control instruments or devices such as tear gas, rubber bullets, pepper spray, electric tasers, batons, whips, water cannons, long range acoustic devices, aerial surveillance, police dogs, etc; which are aided by body protective devices such as anti crowd helmets, face visors, body armor (i.e. vests, neck protectors, knee pads, etc), gas masks and anti crowd shields?
 
 
This special human rights education or public awareness on management of civil or peaceful assemblies and free speeches in Nigeria is extremely necessary so as to educate, expose and condemn the intensified stigmatization and criminalization of same by Nigerian Security Forces and unprofessional print media. The stigmatization and criminalization under reference are done deliberately and systematically by the security forces as a justification for committing the highlighted conduct atrocities which amount to crimes against humanity (i.e. State crimes or regime atrocities committed against unarmed and innocent citizens in peacetime or in non-war situations). Unprofessionalism or media corruption or both are chiefly suspected as the brain behind print media’s conspiracy in stigmatizing and criminalizing civil or peaceful assemblies and free speeches in Nigeria.
 
 
The Nigerian Security Forces particularly the Nigerian Army, Nigeria Police Force and the DSS have steadily or systematically stigmatized and criminalized Pro Biafra agitations in Nigeria. Apart from official nonviolence stance declared by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), totality of our advocacy investigations particularly in the Southeast and the South-south of Nigeria as they relate to IPOB agitation matches, rallies and processions, has not, till date, found the group engaging in violent and other traditional crime conducts such as looting, car-jacking, abduction/kidnapping, armed robbery, extortion, sexual harassment, house breaking or stealing during or after its street or in-door protests.
 
 
We have also not found IPOB as a group using or advocating violence as a method in its self determination agitation for the status of its Biafra Land through national or international referenda. Till date, the group is not traced to any form of armed rebellion or insurrection or armed uprising in Nigeria or any part thereof. Where pockets of breaches are recorded during its public peacefully intended protests, such happened on account of State provocation through use of massive State violence or expression of anger for mass murder and other mass shooting of its unarmed and defenseless members by security forces particularly the Nigerian Army.
 
 
The stigmatization and criminalization of the IPOB peaceful and lawful agitation and free speeches have thickened in recent months particularly in the press conferences and other public statements issued by the Nigerian Army, Nigeria Police Force and the DSS. IPOB has in several of these publications been classified as “militant group”, “terrorist group” or “armed Independent People of Biafra (A-IPOB)”. At the other time, the group was tagged “insurrectionist group”.
 
 
Apart from these criminal labeling, the Police, DSS and the Army have gone further to clamp down on its members and sympathizers and treat them as “terrorist suspects”; clamping and detaining them for months without trial. In the course of all these, the provisions of the 1999 Constitution are breached with reckless abandon. Comrade Chidiebere Onwudiwe, for instance, has been detained incommunicado as a “terrorist” for 94 days without trial or administrative bail, having been arrested, according to the official statement of the DSS, on 22nd June 2016.
 
 
By the express provision of Section 35 (4) (a) of the 1999 Constitution, Comrade Chidiebere Onwudiwe is no longer triable, having been held incommunicado or without administrative or court bail for over two months or 60 days. He is also not triable having been held in DSS custody for over 90days without bail and trial. This is contrary to Section 35 (4) (b) of the Constitution. We call on the Attorney General of the Federation to take note!
 
 
The Nigerian Security Forces also routinely torture their detained IPOB activists for the purpose of forcing them into admitting being “terrorists” when not even fireworks were found on them. They routinely raid their residences in the dead of the night, shoot and arrest them and take them away without informing them of crimes under which they were arrested. The security forces also compile lists of unarmed and defenseless members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and put them in their wanted list. IPOB activists arrested and detained are also made victims of jungle justice or trial-by-ordeal.  
 
 
 
The unprofessional print media, on their part, have steadily stigmatized and criminalized the IPOB nonviolent protests. Even when such protests are sit-at-home, the print media must find a way of stigmatizing and criminalizing same. The Vanguard and the Sun Newspapers news reports of Saturday, September 24, 2016 on IPOB organized sit-at-home protest in the Southeast and the South-south of Nigeria per their Saturday Editors; are a clear case in point.
 
 
For instance, apart from attempts to create a false public impression of “failure” of the sit-at-home protest, the editors further claimed that “that those who stayed away did so because of fears of being attacked by IPOB”; thereby labeling IPOB a violent group or an armed uprising group.
 
 
At Intersociety, we got surprise calls from some journalists on Friday, 22nd September 2016 (day of IPOB organized sit-at-home protest) asking us “how many trailers were burnt in Onitsha”. This is when it is clear to them that the protest was sit-at-home and not street protest. Which explains our position that “the stigmatization and criminalization of peaceful assemblies and free speeches (i.e. IPOB led protests) by the print media are borne out of unprofessionalism or media corruption or both”.
 
 
We condemn in its entirety the stigmatization and criminalization of civil and nonviolent protests and democratic free speeches in Nigeria. The conspiracy of the print media in the conduct atrocities is further condemned. We call on all Nigerians and members of the international community to take advocacy notice of this special publication and stand up at all times against stigmatization and criminalization of civil assemblies and free speeches by the Nigerian Armed Forces and their unprofessional print media collaborators. Rights to freedom of association, expression, movement, fair hearing and personal liberty, which are locally and internationally recognized and entrenched, must be defended and upheld by all and sundry at all times.

[ Masterweb Reports: Dr. Peregrino Brimah reports ] - No kidding, Nigeria's finance minister Kemi Adeosun just compared Nigeria's proposed sale of assets to the Saudi plan to sell 5% or Aramco (Saudi Arabian Oil Co). I'll list below 10 differences that seriously highlight the misgivings in the finance minister's sales pitch:
 
1. Saudi Arabia plans to sell just 5% of its oil assets while maintaining an overwhelming 95% majority, while Nigeria has not indicated a plan to sell such a little fraction of each asset but to give them out whole.
 
2. Saudi Arabia is not selling from a position of desperation and inability to manage the assets but from a position of strength and at top price for assets properly operated and exploited.
 
3. While Nigeria only intends to auction its assets to fund its budget, the Sauds intend to auction 5% of Aramco to fund a visionary masterplan long-term reform programme, dubbed "Saudi Vision 2030," with the $2 trillion funds from the sale, planned to set up the world's largest sovereign wealth fund capable of buying Apple, Microsoft, Google parent, Alphabet Inc and FaceBook. These two agendas can clearly not be compared on any scale.
 
4. Saudi Arabia actually also has a balancing budget problem, but is not selling a fraction of its oil asset for this purpose.
 
5. Nigeria has a poor record of privatization, or better put, cabalization of its assets.
 
6. Nigeria has several options to recover several times more in billions of dollars from looted funds and funds given to banks than the paltry $15 billion its asset sales can furnish. Asset sale should only be considered after these avenues have been exhausted. Saudi Arabia does not have that option for the desired funds it seeks.
 
7. While the Saudi plan was conceived by its government officials with careful thought and a long-term vision, Nigeria's knee-jerk proposal to sell its assets was dictated upon the government by its cabal.
 
8. While Saudi Arabia intends to utilize its proceeds in a sovereign fund, and to make investments globally, Nigeria's asset sale is for local use: to fund its budget and pay salaries. The result of this internal cash dump will only increase inflation.
 
9. Why and since when did Saudi Arabia become a template for Nigeria to stencil its development/recovery strategies?
 
And finally, what is the rational in comparing Nigeria to Saudi Arabia on a proposal the Saudis have not yet put into action and that has not yet proven valuable dividends? Records and examples of successes if such exist, of selling nations to the cabal, should be used for comparison and not plans that have not yet come to fruition.
 
We can compare for instance with the USA, its history of Robber Barons when the cabal owned it all and the labour union riots broke out; or the current situation of 99% and 1%, Wall street ownership of the bulk of the US economic opportunities. Similarly we can compare with the French revolution when the cabal owned it all and the statement attributed to Jean-Jacques Rousseau, “having nothing left to eat, we will eat the rich,” was made.

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release For Immediate Release ] - Being the text of a press release issued by OHANEZE Youth Wing after her emergency general meeting on the continued persecution of the Deputy Senate President by the President Muhammadu Buhari Administration.
 
1. Having considered all the facts of the matter, the OHANEZE youth wing is convinced that the Deputy Senate President- Senator Ike Ekweremadu, CFR, is being persecuted by the Federal Government using the instruments of the Judiciary.
 
All available evidence points to the fact that Ekweremadu's prosecution nay persecution is politically motivated because he is an Igbo man, belongs to President Buhari’s 5 per cent, he is a member of the opposition party, and emerged, along with the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki against the dictates of those who want to run the National Assembly from their bedrooms.
 
Firstly, neither him nor the Senate President were mentioned anywhere in the report of the police investigation. So, how did they generate their names for prosecution and who did so?
 
Secondly, the principle of fair hearing, a fundamental aspect of our jurisprudence was not adhered to since Ekweremadu and Saraki were never interviewed by the Police till date.
 
2. We are not surprised that the AGF has written the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to conduct further investigation into the matter stating that the investigation was, in his word, “inconclusive”.
 
This then justifies the harsh tone with which the AGF was reprimanded by Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Federal High Court, Abuja over what His Lordship termed a “gross abuse of legal process" and “desperate haste” to prosecute the case. He further stated that the prosecution of the duo while a case challenging police investigation into the Senate's affairs was still pending before him was an aberration of justice by the same man that should protect the interest of justice.
 
3.  More importantly Malami, the AGF obviously has a vested interest in the matter since he was the lawyer to the Unity Forum Senators in the so-called forgery matter before his appointment as the AGF.
 
4. Therefore, in the interest of national unity, we demand that the Federal Government refrain from political witch-hunting and ethnic persecution so as to bring everybody together to pull Nigeria out of the doldrums. At this moment when Nigerians are suffering intensely owing to economic recession, there is need for closer collaboration between all arms of Government and bipartisan co-operation borne out of patriotism.  As such, the ruling party- the APC must work with the opposition party-the PDP to move Nigeria forward.
 
5. In the light of the above, we call on Justice    Haliru Yusuf of the FCT High Court to save the Judiciary from further embarrassment, take Justice Kolawole’s ruling into cognizance, and strike out the case for lack of merit and abuse of court process.
 
6. The AGF in particular should desist from bringing his revered Office to disrepute by endlessly shopping for cooked-up evidence to bring down Ekweremadu and Saraki in order to render the legislature toothless.
 
The AGF should honourably resign if he cannot separate his personal interest from national interest and the law.

[ Masterweb Reports: Ismail Mudashir reports ] - The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed,  has threatened to sue the Independent Newspapers, publishers of the Daily Independent,  over a publication on the ‘Change begins with me’ campaign. The newspaper had in the publication dated  September 15, 2016 with the headline, “Change begins with me gulps N3.4bn”, accused the minister of plagiarism.

 

The minister in a letter to the publisher by his lawyers, Falana & Falana’s chambers, accused it of defaming his character through the publication.
 

He gave the newspaper a seven day notice to retract the publication or face legal action.
 

The minister also threatened to sue Messrs Akin Fadeyi and Omo Bazuaye over a statement circulated in some online   platforms on the campaign and gave the writers seven days to retract the story.
 

The letter which was also signed by Oludare Falana said the writers claimed that the minister stole the concept of the Change begins with me from them.

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release For Immediate Release ] - To Punch Newspaper: We read the story with the above headline on your Saturday, September 24, 2016 edition with utter disbelief. 
 
Not that we were taken aback by the underlying motive to whip up negative sentiments against the government, portray it in bad light as wasteful and inconsiderate especially in the face of growing economic hardship, we are particularly miffed by the utter lack of depth displayed in the publication.
 
It is particularly sickening and a show of editorial mishmash for a paper to list some of the vehicles personally owned and already in use by a governor far before he became a governor as instances of lavishing “billions on bulletproof cars.”
 
Does it not call to question The PUNCH’s sense of judgment that a vehicle in which Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola was attacked in the well reported Oroki Day saga in 2006 is one of the so-called bulletproof cars it has accused the governor of “lavishing billions” on at a time of recession?
 
If PUNCH has forgotten that near-tragic drama, has its correspondent also forgotten that more than a year after Aregbesola assumed office as Governor, no official car was procured for his use?  
 
Assuming without conceding that there are six bulletproof vehicles in the fleet of the governor’s convoy, how does that justify the basis for PUNCH’s story which is recession? 
 
If recession was declared officially less than a month in Nigeria, is PUNCH suggesting that vehicles in the fleet of governors ought to be auctioned immediately?
 
In addition, is the PUNCH suggesting that because of recession, number one citizens of states saddled with delicate tasks of piloting affairs of their states must loose their rights to personal safety?
 
There are many questions begging for answers which the story raises.
For the umpteenth time, we can only advise The PUNCH to allow the promotion of an egalitarian society, truth and balance be the basis of its editorial output. 
 
In 2012, The PUNCH in an editorial, accused Osun government of lavishing millions to procure exotic cars for traditional rulers in the state. The bought no bicycle for any monarch. This is among several other false stories written about the state and the governor. The story in question is another in the series of stories which call to question, The PUNCH's editorial judgment.

[ Masterweb Reports: Mark Truman reports ] – African countries have always opposed the idea of gambling; nonetheless, African citizens are very much fond of this way of entertainment. Thus, in order to prevent the spreading of illegal gambling, governments have started to introduce laws and gambling licences. Once several countries of the continent have opened themselves to both land based and online gaming - a new market was formed. As a result, players can find useful information regarding gambling in Africa at many sites such as the ........Read More

[ Masterweb Reports: Abdullateef Aliyu reports ] - Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, have arrested two suspected drug traffickers found with wraps of narcotic drugs that tested positive for cocaine. The seizure, according to NDLEA spokesman, Ofoyeju Mitchel, weighed 485 grammes.

 

One of the suspects, Anazodo Innocent, was found to have inserted wraps of cocaine in his anus on his way to Italy while the second suspect concealed wraps of narcotics in the collar of his jacket on his way from Brazil.
 

NDLEA commander at the Lagos airport Ahmadu Garba explained that while Innocent, 46, was found with seven pellets of cocaine weighing 375 grams inserted in his anus, Agwu Samuel, 31, had ten pellets of cocaine weighing 110 grams concealed inside his jacket.
 

It was learnt that Samuel was arrested shortly after the suspect disembarked from the aircraft on his way from Sao Paulo, Brazil. It was the first time a suspect would hide cocaine in the collar of his jacket, the NDLEA said.
 

Garba stated that the two suspects were apprehended during routine check on passengers, adding that Agwu was nabbed during inward screening of passengers on a South Africa Airline flight from Brazil through Johannesburg while the second suspect, Anazodo, was caught during screening of passengers on a Royal Air Maroc flight going to Milan, Italy.
 

The suspects have owned up to the crime and are cooperating with investigators, the NDLEA said.
 

The Chairman/Chief Executive of the Agency, Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah, described the suspects’ actions as desperately crafty and cunning. He said the agency had taken some strategic measures aimed at uncovering the tricks employed by drug trafficking syndicates.

[ Masterweb Reports: Dr. Peregrino Brimah reports ] - This year, out of some 120 trucks of desperately needed food grains that were sent to the Boko Haram-ravaged northeast of Nigeria, a staggering 70 disappeared into thin air. This reported crime was not only an act of robbery, but an act of terror. It had direct consequences in numbers of starving displaced persons, IDPs dying hourly. So far, as the deadly famine ravishes the IDP camps, nothing has been done; no government official has been held responsible for the "missing" trailers. Rationally, the top official should be charged and he must bring out whatever subordinate is implicated if so, and so on, till all culprits are charged. Months later, all officials are still in charge and at peace under the Buhari presidency.
 
On September 8th, while launching the "Change begins with me" campaign, Nigeria's president recited plagiarized words from US president Barack Obama. Apologizing, the presidency announced that the culprit was a "Deputy Director" in the Presidency, and he will be punished. Weeks later, no one has named/identified and the punishment has not been witnessed. The perpetrator is still being shielded.
 
The Central bank has been accused of nepotism. A long list of names of people in power and their families was published by SaharaReporters media in March of this year, openly exposing the illegal hiring process. Nothing has since been done. The apex bank has been accused of many other offenses, including cabal-partiality in distribution of government subsidized forex, but there has bene no comment or reaction from the new Sheriff.
 
In June, a similar list of 349 names "secretly hired" by the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, was published by the same Sahara Reporters media. Again, nothing was done.
 
Two top government officials, Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau and Chief of Army, CoAS, Lt. General Tukur Yusuf Buratai have been accused of misappropriation of funds and embezzlement. While papers reported that Dambazzau's name was deleted from an army panel report, CoAS Tukur Buratai was exposed to own millions of dollars in unexplainably acquired property in the UAE, Nigeria among other many locations. There has been no explanation nor investigation on these matters. The officials remain shielded and capacitated with power over the people and State accounts.
 
Several of Buhari's appointees have likewise come under attack –even before confirmation – for alleged embezzlement of funds. These include current minister of power, Babatunde Fashola who was in a repeat event, accused of padding the 2016 national budget with his notorious inflated prices (Boreholes at N140 million a piece -PremiumTimes). Buhari looked and continues to look the other way.
 
Many more examples can be cited of the Buhari "change" government shielding deadly corruption and maladministration of his cabinet and associates.
 
But The Sheriff Is Tough On Some
 
One might just have thought that the new Sheriff is aged and weak; unable to make scapegoats and set examples of those in his government and those close to him, however evidence unfortunately suggests otherwise.
 
While Buhari may pretend not to notice the accumulating acts of corruption by those within and close to his administration, he has been hard on certain select groups and individuals. Many are detained without trial and in violation of court granted bails; others like media men, journalists and bloggers are being arrested and locked up at an unprecedented level.
 
Pro-Biafra activists have been rounded-up and "killed" without remorse in cold, brutal measures. As many as 100 protesters were allegedly killed by the Nigerian army and secretly buried in Onitsha, according to media reports (PremiumTimes  Special report of June 13, 2016).
 
Similarly, Islamic movement leader, Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife were reportedly brutalized by the Nigerian army and properties of the movement were illegally rapidly demolished across Kaduna state in a bloody event last December (see Amnesty report) that according to a government panel, saw no less than 350 victims killed and secretly buried in a single mass grave at Mando cemetery. Despite promising to act, Buhari has done nothing almost a year later, while the harshness of the "Sheriff" is still felt on the victims, many including the group leader and his wife are still detained illegally.
 
10 journalists were arrested in Benin last week and detained and are still in detention 5 days later.
 
A blogger, Jamil Mabai, is still in detention 7 days later, after he was arrested last week Monday for a blog post criticizing Katsina State governor Masari's expenses.
 
Many other bloggers including a seriously pro-Buhari blogger, Abubakar Sidiqu Usman, have been locked-up by the government in display that it does have teeth.
 
It would have been better to have an impartial new Sheriff, but Nigeria appears to be under a partial government that is selective in its meeting-out of justice. This is clearly a huge problem.
 
In lieu of severe and dangerous implications of tolerated malfeasance by government officials which have deadly consequences as can easily be observed from the many dying daily in the northeast, deprived of food much of which is being stolen by government officials enjoying impunity, scape-goating members of the current administration becomes imperative.
 
Even if Buhari is too kind to incarcerate his friends and officers, those in command of departments should be openly held to account and at least made to read public statements of apology on camera as happens in China.
 
"I am sorry I plagiarized, I will never do it again."
 
Will we be hearing that soon? We must hope... because injustice and inequality and not poverty is the top cause of terror worldwide and Nigeria is tired of being dragged in reverse by intractable terror consequent to serial government oppression, corruption and injustice. It is time to stop the cycle. 
 
The truth is, peace cannot exist where there is no equity and justice.
