target=_blank rel=noopener>US Air Strike Kills Islamic State Suicide Bomber Near Kabul Airport

American forces launched a drone strike in Kabul on Sunday that killed a suicide car bomber suspected of preparing to attack the airport, US officials said.
This comes as the United States nears the end of its military presence in the city.

The strike, first reported by Reuters, is the second carried out by U.S. forces in Afghanistan since an Islamic State suicide bomber struck the airport on Thursday, killing 13 U.S. troops and scores of Afghan civilians trying to flee the country.
A U.S. official said Sunday’s strike was carried out by an unmanned aircraft and that secondary explosions following the strike showed the vehicle had been carrying a “substantial amount of explosive material.”
According to witnesses, a large blast shaking a neighbourhood north of Hamid Karzai International Airport was heard, and television footage showed black smoke rising into the sky.
U.S. Central Command confirmed the strike and said in a statement that it had no immediate indication it caused any civilian casualties, but was investigating.
“We remain vigilant for potential future threats,” it said.
U.S. President Joe Biden had warned on Saturday that the situation on the ground in Kabul remained extremely dangerous, and that his military chiefs had told him another militant attack was highly likely within the next 24-36 hours.
U.S. officials had said they were particularly concerned about the local affiliate of Islamic State (ISIS-K) attacking the airport as American troops depart, in particular the threat from rockets and vehicle-borne explosives.
Sunday’s drone strike took place as Biden headed to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to honour the U.S. service members killed in Thursday’s suicide bombing.
On Friday the U.S. military launched a drone strike that it said targeted ISIS-K militants in Nangarhar Province, east of Kabul, killing two of the group’s planners and wounding a third.
As the United States continues to withdraw troops, officials say concerns about another Islamic State attack will mount.
Biden sent thousands of troops to Kabul airport as the Taliban swept across Afghanistan earlier this month to help evacuate American citizens, at-risk Afghans and other foreigners who wanted to escape the country’s new rulers.
At the peak of the deployment there were 5,800 U.S. troops securing the airport, where the unprecedented airlift operation is set to end by Tuesday.
Despite Biden’s vow to go after the perpetrators of Thursday’s attack, U.S. officials have cautioned that beyond a symbolic act or limited operation, the United States could in fact do little to degrade ISIS-K.

E2%80%99t-go-abuja-bayo-oluwasanmi target=_blank rel=noopener>Commodore Olawunmi, Dare NIA, Don’t Go To Abuja! By Bayo Oluwasanmi

The Butcher of Aso Rock General Muhammadu Buhari sees himself as more than just a brutal tyrant. He considers himself as a deity So, let’s pray to him:
General Buhari thy will be done in Nigeria as it is done in terrorists’ countries. Give us this day Fulani Republic. Forgive not the trespasses of those anti-patriots who daily attack you for trying to islamize Nigeria and make it Fulani country. Let them succumb to temptation, and suffer under the weight of their venom, and deliver them not from evil.

Since former Navy Commodore Kunle Olawunmi spill the beans on Boko Haram sponsors on Channels TV Sunrise Daily breakfast program, Buhari, The Butcher of Aso Rock has gone into boiling rage. He ordered the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) to demand for Olawunmi’s head. In strict obedience, the NIA promptly declared Olawunmi wanted, asked him to report Tuesday with his international passport at NIA headquarters in Abuja. 
Nigerians knew all along what the eloquent, articulate, and brilliant Commodore Olawunmi said that Buhari is the commander-in-chief of the terrorists because of his utterances, body language, and his failure to rein in the terrorists. Olawunmi’s statement is profoundly weighty because he is a member of the intelligence community. His revealing interview removed any iota of doubt that Buhari is the commander of the terrorists and would do anything to islamize Nigeria. Buhari has offered protection, welfare packages, and reinforcement for the terrorists. On the other hand, Buhari continues to persecute relentlessly southern victims of Fulani terrorists and southerners who criticize Buhari and condemn the terrorists. He shields the terrorists and gives them free hand to operate without any consequences.
Commodore Olawunmi should dare NIA and refuse to go to Abuja for any interrogation. NIA has no subpoena powers to force him to comply with its invitation. Olawunmi has committed no crime. He’s only exercising his freedom of speech guaranteed by the 1999 Constitution as amended. If the government or NIA, or DSS, or any of the arm of Buhari’s torture secret police was angered by Olawunmi’s revealing interview, they should drag Olawunmi to court. Indeed, it is a rare opportunity for them to come out and set the record straight. By the way, why was he asked to come with his international passport? For what? He’s not a criminal who is trying to flee the country. The real criminals are the terrorists – Buhari, Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen terrorists, El-Rufai, Gumi, Miyetti Allah, all the northern governors, northern senators, the Attorney General Malami, Tanko the Chief Justice, Birchi the DSS Director General, Lai Mohammed the information minister, Garba Shehu, Kyari of the HushPuppi loot, directors of all the intelligence agencies, supporters and defenders of Buhari’s ethnic cleansing and islamization agenda.
Olawunmi’s interview should convince all doubting Thomases especially the Yorubas that Nigeria is not one country and can never be one, that there’s justification for separation, that Nigeria cannot be renewed, redeemed, or delivered from Buhari and his band of jihadists who are bent on islamizing Nigeria and turn it to Fulani country. Olawunmi has again made a compelling submission why Nigeria should break up. No further reason or proof is needed for the inevitability of Nigeria’s demise. Nigerians should be grateful to Commodore Olawunmi for his courage, boldness, honesty, and patriotism. Olawunmi, Professor of Global Security Studies at Chrisland University, Abeokuta, Ogun State, is one of the few remaining heroes in a country ruled by terrorists, scalawags, imbeciles, thieves, scammers, and looters. 
 
Meanwhile, Oduduwa Nation beckons!

E2%80%94kwara-community-resident target=_blank rel=noopener>VIDEO: How We Depend On Dirty, Contaminated Stream Water To Survive—Kwara Community Resident

Residents of Eka Kuso in Kpada District of the Patigi Local Government Area of Kwara State have narrated how they fetch and drink from dirty streams.
The residents during a visit by an anti-corruption civil society organisation, Elites Network for Sustainable Development (ENetSuD) said they have been excluded from water supply for years, forcing them to resort to fetching untreated water from streams around.

A video obtained by SaharaReporters shows the various areas where residents fetch water from are dirty, bushy and mashy.
“We suffer a lot when it comes to getting water, especially during harmattan. We don’t use to feel okay during that time, right from morning, around six o’clock, they will fetch water and wait till like ten o’clock so it can settle down,” a villager was heard saying.
“We want help wholeheartedly, we are really suffering.”

On July 22, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) reported 526 deaths from cholera while there are 22,130 suspected cases in 2021 alone. 
The primary cause of cholera is the ingestion of contaminated food and water, majorly fuelled by the lack of water and sanitation hygiene (WASH) infrastructures.
Water Aid says 60 million people in Nigeria lack access to clean water. That is one in every three people.

target=_blank rel=noopener>Retired Teacher Who Served Borno Government For 35 Years Now Hawks To Survive As Nigerian Economy Bites Harder

Teacher

Al-Amin Shettima Bello, a man who served Borno State government for 35 years as a teacher and retired meritoriously is now hawking on the streets of Maiduguri, the state capital.
Bello told journalists in English that he was taught by the British.

Teacher

ICIR

According to him, in his school back then, there were only a few black teachers whom he identified as the late Dr. Shettima Ali Monguno, Shettima Kashim and the late Shettima Mustapha Kutai (father of the current Senator representing Borno Central in the National Assembly, Kashim Shettima), Daily Post reports.
Sharing his story with journalists by the roadside, Bello said Professor Bosoms Sheriff of the University of Maiduguri was his school mate.
“Professor Bosoms was ahead of me with one year because he completed his primary education in 1966 while I completed in 1967. He is older than me in class, not by age,” Bello said.
He continued, “I started schooling in Yerwa Central and completed in 1955 where I proceeded to Trade Business and trained as a carpenter. I worked as a carpenter for several years before my parents decided that I go back to school again. I went to Old Bama Primary School and completed in 1967 where I proceeded to Borno Teachers College.”
Bello, who is usually around the First Bank ATM centre at Maiduguri Monday Market, said the area was strategic as it would afford him the opportunity to market his goods – mentholated Robb – to people who had just withdrawn cash.
 “Teaching is an exciting job but there is no money in it. It is a sacrifice. Now that I have retired, I can only help myself with the little from this business rather than being a dependent on people,” he said.
 The economy has gone worse under the government of President Muhammadu Buhari with inflation rising at an alarming rate.
A report by The Economist in May 2021 said, “Inflation is running at 18%. For food it is 23%, the highest in two decades. More than half of Nigerians are underemployed or unemployed. Before covid-19 about 80m of Nigeria’s 200m people lived on less than the equivalent of $1.90 a day. The pandemic and population growth could see that figure rise to almost 100m by 2023, says the World Bank.”

target=_blank rel=noopener>Islamic Group Blasts Plateau Governor, Nigerian Army Over ‘Delayed Trial’ Of Suspected Killers Of Maj Gen Alkali

An Islamic advocacy group, Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has raised concern over the delay in the investigation into the death of Major Gen (rtd). Idris Alkali. 
 
The retired Major general was declared missing on September 3, 2018, and found dead on October 31, 2018.

His killing was believed to be in retaliation for a deadly attack by unknown gunmen on a shopping complex at Lafande community, Dura-Du district in the Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State on September 2, 2018.
Eleven people were reportedly killed in the attack while several others were injured, and Alkali was said to have been killed by angry protesters while travelling from Abuja to Bauchi State. 
 
His vehicle was eventually found in a pond at Dura-Du in Jos South on September 29, 2018.
 
A month after an intensive search, the dead body of the army boss was found in an open well at Guchwet village in Shen district. 
 
He was buried on November 3, 2018, in Abuja.
 
Meanwhile, the Islamic group has accused the Plateau State governor, Simon Lalong and the Nigerian Army of deliberately delaying the trials of the accused persons by assigning the case to a judge, Danile Longi whom the state government knew would retire last year.
 
It said there is every reason to suspect that the government is delaying the murder case.
 
It further challenged the state government to comment on an unofficial report which purportedly claimed that only five out of the seven arrested suspects were charged for murder while others were later granted bail. 
 
The group said the others were charged for obstructing public officials from carrying out their duties.
 
Meanwhile, MURIC’s director and founder, Professor Ishaq Akintola, has demanded a progress report from the government over the Alkali murder case.
 
This was revealed in his statement on Saturday where he asked Governor Lalong to show evidence that the government has not interfered with the rule of law in the state regarding the murder case.
 
He, therefore, asked the government and the Nigerian Army to reveal the latest development on the case.
The statement said, “Major General Idris Alkali (rtd) went missing on 3rd September 2018 while travelling from Abuja to Bauchi via Jos. His vehicle was later recovered from a pond in Dura-Du in Jos South on 29th September 2018 while his body was found more than one month later (on 31st October) in an open well in Guchwet village of Shen district in Jos South Local Government Area after an intensive search. He was later buried in Abuja on 3rd November 2018.
 
“It is interesting to note that the locals, both men, and women, had played a conspiratorial role in the whole drama. Attempts were made to stop the army from conducting a search for the missing general. Half-naked women demonstrated in Jos against the search.
 
“They claimed the army was profiling the Jos population whom they claimed was ‘innocent’. This caused a lot of delays. It also explains why it took so long to find the body in a well (more than a month) after discovering the general’s car underneath a pond.
 
“This background, particularly the deceitful and hypocritical role played by the people of Jos, will enable us to understand where Governor Lalong is coming from. The cover-up abracadabra displayed by the women was a mere prologue. The governor is now writing the epilogue by manipulating the judiciary.
 
“According to unofficial reports reaching our office, the case which was formerly being handled by Justice Danile Longji, is now before Justice Ashom at the Jos High Court. This is because the former judge retired last year.
 
“Legal experts know what this means. Cases that are designed for endless and inconclusive trials are usually handled this way. The state government knew very well that Justice Longji was about to retire. It also knew that cases being handled by retiring judges have to be reassigned to other judges who will have to start de novo.
 
“But why assign a case of such gravity to a judge whom the state government knew was about to retire? There is every reason to suspect delay tactics in the Alkali murder case.
 
“Another deliberate clog in the wheel of justice was the grant of fiat to Joe-Kyari Gadzama (SAN), a private lawyer. Fiat is the authority given to a private lawyer to prosecute a criminal case on behalf of the state. This has caused undue delay in the prosecution of the case. Several adjournments have occurred at the instance of the prosecution.
 
“We put it to Governor Lalong that the Alkali case is being deliberately delayed in the hope that the general public will lose interest in it and it will subsequently be swept under the carpet. But Lalong has grossly miscalculated. This is not just about General Alkali alone. Alkali may be an army general but he was a Muslim and he was killed because of his faith, not because of his profession.
 
“There has been a strong suspicion for a long time now that Jos is a killing field for Muslim travellers. Thousands of Muslim travelers from North and South who took that route are known to have gone missing in that area. Jos is a zone of death. The murder of Alkali just happened to have been the last straw that broke the camel’s back. The bloodthirsty killers in Jos were just too clever by half.
 
“The recent killing of thirty-two (32) Muslim travelers who were going to Ikare in Ondo State on Saturday, 14th August, 2021 is another pointer. It shows that killers of Muslims have not reneged. The five buses which conveyed those killed would have been driven and pushed under the huge ponds of Jos, never to be seen again, had security agents not raced to the scene of the crime. This is why Nigerian Muslims are eager to know how the Alkali case is progressing. Our collective safety on Jos roads lies in the outcome of that case.
 
“We recall that several vehicles were also found beneath the same pond in which the general’s car was found. Among the vehicles was an 18-seater bus. Where were the occupants? Where were the owners of several other vehicles found inside the pond? Their ethnicities may be in doubt, but we do not have to guess their religion.
 
“Muslim travelers have been murdered in cold blood in their thousands in Jos. Here is concrete evidence of the killing of Muslims in large numbers in Nigeria but America is only interested in making noise about the phantom killing of Christians.
 
“It is noteworthy that there are hundreds of ponds like this littering the Jos metropolis. How many vehicles have been sunk under them? We may never know. It took the army several days before the Alkali pond was drained and its chilling contents discovered. It is just safe to conclude that thousands of Muslims have disappeared in the Jos zone of death.
 
“Nigerians need to know the progress report in the Alkali case. The unofficial report in our possession added that only five (5) or seven (7) of those arrested were charged for murder. Others were merely charged for obstructing public officers from carrying out their duties, (e.g. the woman who led the protest in a bid to stop the Nigerian Army from conducting a search), unlawful assembly, conspiracy, silence, and failure to report a crime to constituted authorities. This second category was granted bail while those charged for murder are still in ‘prison’. But how far is this unofficial report true?
 
“MURIC calls out the Plateau State Government to speak up, to confirm or to deny our unofficial story. Why are we not hearing about any updates on the trial of General Alkali’s killers? How many people are being tried for the killing? How many were arrested ab initio? How many are on bail? When is the next hearing? Who is the judge in charge and where is his court located? The Plateau State government should speak up on this. Lalong should show evidence that he has not interfered with the rule of law in Plateau State. MURIC wants to know. Nigerians want to know.
 
“The immediate constituency and employer of the late general, namely, the Nigerian Army, has a role to play here. We are asking Army Headquarters for updates on the brutal killing of a whole general of the Nigerian Army. Is the army legal department abreast of developments in the case? Did the Nigerian Army assign one of its lawyers to attend the hearings? We want to hear from the Nigerian Army. An army general should not just die unsung. It will forever constitute a stain on that great institution. 
 
“It is our duty as a human rights group to interrogate Lalong on the killing of a whole general. The right to life is guaranteed by Section 33 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. But General Idris Alkali was denied that right to life. That matter cannot end like that just because Governor Lalong has gone to army headquarters in Abuja to beg the top hierarchy.
 
“Is the army developing cold feet on this case? Will any army general or senior officer be safe again in this country? This is a man who served his country meritoriously and rose to the rank of army general before retiring gloriously. The trial of his killers deserves the army’s attention and concern.
 
“We, therefore, demand an official statement from both the Plateau State Government and the Nigerian Army. Tongues are wagging. Rumours are flying at the speed of light. Democracy necessitates transparency. Nay, democracy is a toothless bulldog in the absence of justice and justice delayed is justice denied. Failure to give an update on the Alkali affair will be interpreted to mean somebody somewhere is hiding something. Is Simon Lalong listening?”
