Reading Time: 2 minutes
The Federal Government says it has suspended the salaries of 331 civil servants for failure to update their Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System as was directed.

Mr Mahmuda Mamman, Permanent Secretary, Career Management office, made the announcement in a statement issued by Mr Abdulaganiyu Aminu, Director, Press and Public Relations, Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation on Saturday in Abuja.

According to the statement, Mamman had signed the circular of the suspension on behalf of the HOCSF, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan.

It said that the circular was addressed to all permanent secretaries, Accountant General of the Federation and the Auditor-General of the Federation.

“The salaries of 331 federal civil servants have been suspended on the IPPIS platform for their failure to carry out the online records update of the HR Module of Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System.

“And also, who failed to participate in the physical verification exercise. “This emerged from a circular ref: HCSF/CSO/HRM/T/41 issued on 9th June, 2021.

“And signed on behalf of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan by the Permanent Secretary, Career Management Office, Mahmuda Mamman,” the statement added.

According to Mamman, in spite of all the various circulars issued requesting employees of MDAs to carry out an online records update on the IPPIS verification portal, some employees in the core MDAs failed to comply with the directives.

“As a result of this, they could not also participate in the physical verification exercise that was carried out between June 2018 and December 2020 as their records were not found on the verification portal,” it stated.

The Human Resources Module of IPPIS records update exercise was initiated to rid the service of ghost workers, cut down government expenditure and ensure credible personnel records.

The circular according to Mamman further enjoined concerned officers to report to the office of the Director, in the office of the HOCSF for further information and clarification.

Hausa Artisans Mistaken For Fulani Herdsmen In Ekiti – Police

Reading Time: 2 minutes
The Ekiti State Police Command has once again noticed false information circulating on social media that some Hausa/Fulani men were found around Agric Olope Housing Estate in possession of dangerous weapons including AK-47 rifles with the intention of unleashing terror on the Community.

The Command wishes to state that; on Friday 11th June, 2021 at about 0730hrs, the Command’s Rapid Response Squad(RRS) received a distress call that some suspected Fulani herdsmen were arrested with dangerous weapons around Agric Olope Housing Estate. The RRS Commander immediately deployed Operatives to the scene where they actually arrested the suspects with their Mini Truck containing their properties and brought them to the Station.

During investigation, it was discovered that they were all personnel of MESSRS ZALHAT TRADING AND CONSTRUCTION NIGERIA LIMITED comprising different Artisans such as Bricklayers, Carpenters and Labourers who were brought in to Ado-Ekiti for the construction of 3 Bedroom Bungalows at a site in Agric Olope.

Items found with them are: wheel barrows, empty paint rubbers, diggers, shovels, planks and other Bricklayers, Carpenters and Labourers tools, including mattresses. They have however, been handed over to MR OTEGBADE ALBERT OLADIRAN, Controller, Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, after confirming them to be innocent and personnel of ZALHAT TRADING AND CONSTRUCTION NIGERIA LIMITED who were in Ado-Ekiti to execute a project given to them by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The Command therefore, calls on all and sundry to disregard the fake and fictitious information, adding that it was mischievously intended to cause rancor and undue apprehension in the Society.

The Ekiti State Commissioner of Police, CP TUNDE MOBAYO, while imploring members of the public to always verify the source and veracity of every information they receive via the social media, warns against fake and unverified formulation, publication and spread of information that could be detrimental to the peace of our dear Society.

Amotekun Will Metamorphose To State Police – Akeredolu

Reading Time: 2 minutes
Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has said that the State Security Network codenamed Amotekun Corps would metamorphosed into a State Police.

Akeredolu who said he does not believe in secession stated that the many promises of June 12 have been dashed.

Akeredolu who spoke in Akure at the 2021 Democracy Day celebration said there was no serious attempt to redesign the security architecture to respond to the demands of a nascent country as at the time of independence.

He insisted that every federating unit in the country should have its own police for effective security.

The Ondo Governor declared that local government could not be absolute autonomous and that the Federal Government should have no control, whatsoever, on how a Local Government is run in a State of the Federation.

“Let every state determine the number of local governments it wishes to have for effective administration. The civil service must respond to the current realities for relevance. Let the extent of wealth creation form the basis of establishing local administrations. It does not make any economic sense to create as many local governments as the politics of revenue sharing will permit.

“Governors must be Chief Executive Officers answerable only to the people indeed. The law must empower them to harness the resources in their respective States for the benefit of those who voted for them. They must not be subjected to any external control as equal partners in a federation unless when it is absolutely necessary.

“They must be able to mobilise the people for socio-economic activities with minimal interference from the government at the centre. This will enhance their ability to protect their people from rampaging marauders and other criminals who wreck their peace in perpetuity.

“The message which produced June 12, 1993, was “Farewell to Poverty”. Our people looked forward to a better Nigeria where every citizen would be proud. The hope was dashed. We have been trying to rekindle the light of realistic expectations since 1999. The political journey proceeds in fits and starts. The ride has been bumpy, creating doubts and suspicion on the genuineness of intentions.

“The problems are, however, surmountable if all are sincere in finding lasting solutions to the existential issues confronting us. That should the lesson derivable from the June 12 annulment and the symbolic revalidation.”

Barr. Femi Aborisade who delivered the Democracy Day lecture insisted that Nigeria was not a broke nation.

Buhari: I Told Sanwo-Olu To Tell Lagosians To Walk After Buses Were Burnt

Reading Time: < 1 minute
President Muhammadu Buhari says he told Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, to tell residents of the state to “walk” after buses were burnt during the #EndSARS protest.

In October 2020, demonstrations against police brutality were hijacked, leading to razing of vehicles and buildings across the country. Several vehicles under the Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) scheme in Lagos were also burnt.

Following the incident, Sanwo-Olu had paid a visit to Buhari with a photo album of the destruction recorded in the state during the protests.

Speaking in an interview with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) on Friday, Buhari said he told the Lagos governor that the federal government didn’t have the funds to replace the burnt buses.

“Look at the #EndSARS incident in Lagos. The previous governor of Lagos state bought 200 buses to complement the transportation in Lagos. And he built a complex. But they went and burnt them,” Buhari said.

“The present governor made an album and came to see me. I said ‘Thank you very much’. I took the album, put it in my archives and I told him to tell the Lagosians to walk, because we don’t have the money.

“After an administration bought over 200 buses, for some people to come and burn it? So, let them walk.”

Six soldiers and a yet undisclosed number of gunmen are feared dead in Ohafia, Ohafia council area of Abia state in the early hours of Saturday as the military battled gunmen in the area.

Vanguard gathered that on Thursday, at about 5pm, unknown gunmen had stormed the Ebem motor park, shot sporadically in the air and fled to the Amangwu area of Ohafia.

When soldiers of the 14 Brigade of the Nigeria Army got wind of the incident, they went in search of the hoodlums in the community.

However, the soldiers who could not arrest any of the hoodlums, reinforced and returned to Amangwu community.

Sources told Vanguard that in their second visit, the unknown gunmen engaged the soldiers in a gun battle which reportedly lasted for several hours.

In the gun duel, unconfirmed reports have it that six soldiers were killed, while an undisclosed number of the unknown gunmen were also shot dead.

The operation caused the natives of Amangwu to flee from their homes as many of them slept in the bush till the next morning when the soldiers returned to their barracks at about 8.45 am.

A native of Amangwu Ohafia, who simply gave his name as Udo, and resides in Umuahia, told Vanguard that one of his relatives called him on phone at about 4.30 am and told him he was calling from inside the bush where they had gone to take refuge.

Residents of Elu, Ebem, and other adjoining villages in Ohafia, are reportedly living in fear.

Effort to contact the Army spokesman, 14 Brigade, Ohafia, Capt. Iliya Dauda, was unsuccessful as at press time.

However, a senior military officer in the state confirmed the incident, adding that over ten gunmen were killed in the crossfire.

Christian Eriksen: Denmark Midfielder ‘Stabilised’ After Collapsing During Euro 2020 Opener Against Finland

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Inter Milan player Eriksen, 29, is “awake” and undergoing tests in hospital after collapsing on the pitch and receiving CPR; UEFA confirmed Eriksen has been “stabilised” and that Denmark vs Finland would restart at 7.30pm UK time after being suspended due to a “medical emergency”

Christian Eriksen is “awake” and undergoing tests in hospital after collapsing on the pitch as Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 match against Finland was temporarily suspended just before half-time.

The 29-year-old’s condition has been “stabilised”, according to tournament organisers Uefa.

UEFA confirmed the Group B match had been halted due to a “medical emergency” after Eriksen, 29, dropped to the ground at the Parken Stadium shortly before half-time, leaving players from both teams in clear distress.

English referee Anthony Taylor called medics on to the pitch and Eriksen underwent prolonged treatment, including CPR.

Team-mates formed a shield around the former Tottenham player, while fans inside the stadium were clearly stunned by the incident, with some pictured in tears.

“Eriksen is awake and his condition remains stable,” the Danish FA later said. “He remains hospitalised at Rigshospitalet for further examinations.”

UEFA confirmed the match, which originally kicked off at 5pm UK time, would restart at 7.30pm at the request of players from both teams.

A statement read: “Following the request made by players of both teams, UEFA has agreed to restart the match between Denmark and Finland tonight at 20:30 CET.

“The last four minutes of the first half will be played, there will then be a five-minute half-time break followed by the second half.”

Saturday’s other Group B match between Belgium and Russia, scheduled for 8pm UK time, is set to take place as scheduled.

Eriksen’s club, Inter, tweeted: “Forza Chris, all of our thoughts are with you.”

Former team Tottenham said: “Get well soon, Christian. The whole Spurs family is with you.”

I Almost Peed On Myself When Pythons Were Placed On My Neck While Acting – Destiny Etiko Reveals

Reading Time: 2 minutes
Popular Nigerian actress, Destiny Etiko, has recounted her experience carrying a python in a movie she starred in.

Speaking during an Instagram Live session monitored by Saturday Beats, she said, “The movie, ‘Idemili’, gave me ‘life’. When I got the role, I was told that I would be carrying a snake. My mother actually encouraged me to take the role. She said the snake would not harm me.

“I then went ahead to carry the snake. I was neither the lead nor sub-lead character in the movie though. I only had 10 scenes in the movie but they were very significant. It is one movie I cannot forget in a hurry. The snake we used was a python and the good thing is that it is not poisonous, so it was not so difficult for me. But, I was not the only one that carried the snake in the movie. My senior colleague, Eve Esin, also carried a snake. I almost wet my pants when it was dropped on my neck because it was so cold. When we came back on set the next day, they put two snakes on me. And, the funny thing is that the snakes slept off on my body. It was quite a memorable experience.”

Etiko also stated that her kissing scenes in movies were mostly real. She said, “Most of the kisses I give in my movies are real though. If one wants to do it well, one has to make it real.”

The actress, who is famed for her curves, also stated that contrary to what the roles she plays in movies portray, she is a soft person.

She added, “I am not a tough person. I am actually very soft. My astrological sign is ‘Leo’ and I’m a lioness. I am also a queen. You could see me in action (in movies) and think I am going to kill my husband. But, that cannot happen. ‘Future husband, don’t run away please. Don’t think I am going to kill you’.”

Man Survives After Being Caught Inside A Whale’s Mouth While Diving

Reading Time: 3 minutes
Michael Packard, an experienced lobster diver survived being caught in a humpback whale’s mouth near Provincetown, Massachusetts on Friday morning, according to Independent.

Michael Packard was searching for lobsters on the ocean floor on his second dive of the day, approximately 45 feet below the surface, when he said he felt a bump and then he was in total darkness.

“All of a sudden, I felt this huge shove, and the next thing I knew it was completely black,” Mr Packard told WBZ-TV, following his release from the Cape Cod Hospital.

At first the 45-year-old thought that he was in the mouth of a great white shark, which are common in the area. But when he realised that he hadn’t suffered any obvious wounds from sharp teeth, he determined that he was in the mouth of a whale.

“I realised – oh my God, I’m in a whale’s mouth and he’s trying to swallow me.”

“And I thought to myself OK, this is it, I’m gonna die”

Mr Packard said that his thoughts then went to his wife and sons, whom he feared he would never see again.

He estimates that he was in the whale’s mouth for 30 to 40 seconds. Mr Packard was able to continue to breathe, as he had his regulator in his mouth, but could feel the whale “squeezing with the muscles in his mouth” the whole time.

Mr Packard told CBSN Boston: “It was happening so fast, my only thought was how to get out of that mouth, and I realized, there was no overcoming of a beast of that size. He was going to do with me what he wanted to do.”

Luckily, fate was on Mr Packard’s side. He said he could tell that the whale didn’t like having him in its mouth.

“All of a sudden he went up to the surface. He just erupted and started shaking his head, and I just got thrown in the air and landed in the water and I was free.”

He added: “I just floated there. I couldn’t believe I got out of that.”

Josiah Mayo, a crewman from Mr Packard’s boat, saw the whale burst to the surface and spit out Mr Packard. Mr Mayo retrieved Mr Packard from the water before calling the shore by radio, and speedily returning to the Provincetown Pier.

An ambulance met Mr Packard at the pier and took him to Cape Cod Hospital; he was released Friday afternoon, having sustained some bruising and soft tissue damage to his legs whilst in the whale’s mouth.

Jooke Robbins, the director of Humpback Whale Studies at the Centre for Coastal Studies in Provincetown told The Cape Cod Times that what happened to Mr Packard was most likely an accident, caused by a somewhat clumsy, juvenile whale.

She said that as humpback whales feed, their mouths open and billow out in a parachute-like manner, obstructing their vision, which is likely what led to Mr Packard becoming trapped in the whale’s mouth. She added that humpback whales are not known to be aggressive, especially towards humans.

Incidents of humpback whales injuring swimmers and divers are exceedingly rare, if not nonexistent, Ms Robbins said. Adding: “It is not something I have heard happening before”.

June 12: Why We Dispersed Protesters In Abuja — Police Speak Up

Reading Time: 2 minutes
According to a report by The PUNCH, the Federal Capital Territory Police Command on Saturday justified the decision by its men to disperse protesters at the Gudu Area of the nation’s capital, Abuja

The PUNCH had reported that security men fired teargas canisters at the protesters in the area with many including a correspondent of The PUNCH running to safety.

However, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, Yusuf Mariam, in a statement said policemen had to disperse the protesters to prevent members of the proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria and others from “inciting public disturbance.”

She added that calm had been restored around the axis, saying nobody was arrested.

The statement was titled, ‘FCT Police foils attempt to incite public disturbance, disperse members of the proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria and others.’

Mariam said, “The FCT Police Command on Saturday, June 12, 2021, successfully restored calm at Apo-Gudu axis after professionally dispersing a protest by some members of the proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria – Shiites and others targeted at inciting public disturbance and breaching public peace.

“Consequently, the action of the command was necessitated by the concerns of some agitated residents. However, no arrest was made.

“In view of the above, the command wishes to state that it is committed to ensuring that FCT residents enjoy a hitch-free Democracy Day celebration and will not hesitate to bring to book every person or entity that attempts to breach the peace or cause a breakdown of law and order in the Federal Capital Territory.

“The command implores residents to remain calm and law-abiding while reaffirming its unwavering commitment to the protection of lives and property within the FCT.”

Belgium Vs Russia Confirmed Lineups

Belgium will take on Russia in a Group B encounter tonight (Saturday) at the Gazprom Arena in St. Petersburg in their UEFA Euro 2020 campaign.

Belgium were absolutely unstoppable on their route to the European championships as they cruised through the qualifying campaign without any hiccups.

Russia, meanwhile, enjoyed a straightforward run in the qualifiers as well.

Drawn in the same group as Belgium, Stanislav Cherchesov’s men achieved a second-place finish, winning eight of their ten games, while losing both the contests against their Saturday’s opponents. 2020, though, was a forgettable year for the team as they failed to win six of their eight games, resulting in them staying put in League B of the UEFA Nations League.

However, Russia were able to correct their course to some extent this year, winning two of their three World Cup qualifying games (L1) and head into the Euros with a draw and win over Poland and Bulgaria, respectively, in friendly clashes earlier this month.

Belgium Vs Russia Lineup

Belgium XI (3-4-2-1): Courtois, Alderweireld, Denayer, Vertonghen, Meunier, Dendoncker, Tielemans, Ferreira-Carrasco, Mertens, Hazard, Lukaku

Russia XI (3-4-2-1): Shunin, Barinov, Dzhikiya, Semenov, Fernandes, Zobnin, Ozdoev, Kuzyaev, Miranchuk, Golovin, Dzyuba

Anthony Adeyinka: Police Fired Tear Gas At Hoodlums Not June 12 Activists

Reading Time: < 1 minute
Anthony Adeyinka, an aide of Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said Police in Ojota fired tear gas to disperse hoodlums, not June 12 activists.

Adeyinka, who is an SSA on sports, explained that the hoodlums were on course to hijack the protest at the Gani Fawehinmi Park in the Ojota area of Lagos State.

He commended the police officers on how they managed the June 12 protest across the state.

“I was impressed with the way the police handled that situation. It was not the activists, it was the hoodlums that wanted to hijack that protest”, he said in a newspaper interview.

“The people were at Ojota peacefully. The activists were addressing themselves that what they want is a peaceful demonstration but the hoodlums, the miscreants as we all know them wanted to hijack the peaceful demonstration.

“But the police rose to that occasion and made sure the thing was put in order.”

Adeyinka added: “The youths in Lagos are ready to work in synergy with the state government.

“The last #EndSARS showed how hoodlums hijacked a peaceful protest but we give thanks to God that the youths are able to come together and work together with the governor and make sure there is peace in the state.”

Buhari: How Governors Caused The Country A Lot Of Pain

Reading Time: 2 minutes
President Muhammadu Buhari has accused governors of causing the country so much pain as a result of the strike of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).

Judiciary workers had embarked on a 64-day strike over the refusal of governors to implement the autonomy for the state judiciary.

Last year, President Muhammadu Buhari had signed the Executive Order 10 for the enforcement of the autonomy of the judiciary but the 36 governors kicked against the order.

When he played host to the Nigerian Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) at the State House, Abuja, on Friday, the president spoke on his commitment to devolving of power to the people.

“I remain an unapologetic believer in devolving power to the people and that is why I signed the Executive Order granting autonomy to State Legislature and Judiciary. Unfortunately, this was met with some resistance at the state level and led to a more than two months strike action that has caused the country a lot of pain.

“Luckily the National Assembly has nearly completed the constitutional review process, which I hope would address some of the burning issues agitating the minds of our people.’’

The president also spoke about the effect of the strike, lamenting its security implication.

“Fortunately, this strike has been called off and prosecution of some of these people (those behind insecurity) would soon commence, while our security agencies expand their network in closing in on the others,’’ he added.

NIREC was led by Co-Chairmen, Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar and President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), His Eminence, Rev. Dr. Samson Supo Ayokunle.

Zulum Commissions Houses, Remolded Chibok School Where Girls Were Kidnapped

On Zulum’s Invitation, Women Affairs Minister Commissions Remodeled Chibok School Where Girls were Kidnapped in 2014

… Chibok Gets 200 Resettlement Houses, New Lodge

Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen, was today, (Monday), in Chibok, on the invitation of Borno State Governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum, where she commissioned Government Secondary School, Chibok, where over 200 schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram on April 14, 2014.

The school was rehabilitated when Zulum gave approval on November 16, 2020, during an assessment visit to the School.

The remodeled school was equipped with classrooms and desks, a computer room, laboratory, among other facilities, while a security team was being put in place.

GSS, Chibok, was vandalized after Boko Haram attacked the school at night in 2014, destroyed infrastructures and abducted over 200 boarding schoolgirls who were writing Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations organized by the West African Examination Council, WAEC.

Since the attack, the school had remained closed while academic activities were taking place at a primary school in Chibok town since 2014.

… Chibok Gets 200 Resettlement Houses, Lodge

Aside unveiling of the GSS in Chibok, Governor Zulum commissioned 200 low cost houses newly built for the permanent resettlement of internally displaced persons (IDPs) currently residing in temporary camps.

Zulum also commissioned a newly built government lodge to encourage routine visits to Chibok in order to increase direct access of residents to authorities.

Zulum noted that resettlement efforts were being made possible because of some gains recorded by the federal government in the ongoing peace restoration efforts which, he said, was reaffirmed in President Muhammadu Buhari’s choice of an Army Chief from the military’s theatre of operations in Borno State.
