KADUNA: 4 Igbo Traders Killed

(CURRENT SITUATION: Kaduna is still raging on..Properties are being razed – many are being lynched. Stay where ever you are. Igbos do not under any circumstances attempt going to your shops for the time being.)
The mayhem unfolding in Kaduna State may have recorded its deadliest blow yesterday as Muslim youths took their rampage to the markets located at the Northern Kaduna where Muslims are the dominant group. Information available to us indicate that the Kaduna Central Market was attacked owing to the premature relaxation of the 24hour curfew across the state to a 6pm to 6am curfew. As the traders of Kaduna Central Market arrived at the gated marketplace to unlock their various shops to beginning the business of the day at across minutes to 7am, a group of irate Muslim youths pounced into the market premises and locked the gates – and commenced/launched an attack on the traders that had arrived to unlock their shops. Many of the traders who were caught unawares ran for safety while the unlucky one who could not escape the youths – were knifed to death. Four Igbo traders believed to be Anambra in origin were brutally killed – before the security agents arrived at the markets to secure the area. As the security agents staged in Kaduna [Operation Yaki] arrived to the Kaduna Central Market, the irate Muslim youths escaped the scene. The security operative have remained tight lipped on the identities of the 4 slaughtered traders.

Similar scenario played out at the Kaduna Polytechnic – as irate Muslim youths from the vicinity of Tudun Wada took advantage of the relaxed curfew and briefly gained unfettered entry into the polytechnic campus armed with exotic knives/daggers and other dangerous weapons at about 2pm yesterday Tuesday June 19, 2012. The students were caught unawares as they scampered for their lives while others managed to fight for their lives. Before the men of the Operation Yaki could arrive to the campus, two bodies believed to be students of the polytechnic were laying lifeless near the entrance of the campus. The identities of the two dead students were not available.

The communities in the northern part of Kaduna within the vicinity of Kaduna Central Market, Tudun Wada, Kawo and Rigasa experienced violent activities yesterday. Exclusive eyewitness reports indicate that three Churches were hazed yesterday during ruckus. An ECWA church located in Tudun Wada was attacked, another church [name not known] was attacked in Tudun Nufawa and another church [JAWOM Church] was attacked in Ungwan Nua’azu. Other attempts were made by the irate youths to attack other church. But the attempts were not successful due to the quick acting vigilante security setup by some within the Christian communities who refused to 

CURRENT SITUATION: Kaduna is still raging on..Properties are being razed – many are being lynched. Stay where ever you are. Igbos do not under any circumstances attempt going to your shops for now.

Nigerians Selling Their Kidney For $30,000 Abroad

ImageThe global economic crunch that is affecting all sphere of life is really having its tolls on Nigerians abroad who have resulted selling their kidneys and other sense organs for money.

These Nigerians abroad whose lives have been so unbearable for are actively seeking markets to sell their kidneys online and have been making journeys to countries in Asia, – Malaysia and India particularly, to sell usually just one of their two kidneys for over $30,000.

The spoil: N5-10 Million, which translates to about $30-60,000 for the vital blood filtering and red blood cell (RBC) generating organ has become a booming market for them.

Our research have disclosed that  there is a sophisticated online network of vendors, agents, resellers and hunters, who actively seek candidates, sometimes going to the extent of kidnapping them and supply these usually desperate, hopeful-for-a-quick-fix to life’s financial dreams, young Nigerians, to ready slice-and-pop physicians in shed facilities.

These ‘experts’, we gathered, excavate the organs and ice-box them to the eager transplant centers, thriving with Asians, Middle Easterner’s and Europeans on the waiting list, hoping for that fresh, cheap paupers kidney.

How much do clients pay the harvesting centers for these kidneys? About $100-200,000. And they are teaming on the waiting list. “Sometimes kidneys are harvested with meager remuneration given the ‘donor’, or rather, seller- paid as little as $5,000 for the vital organ, and many others die at operation or soon after,” a source told us.

As you read this article, there are possibly 1000 Nigerians reading it with you, hoping to find a link to the underground network where they can get the hook-up to sell their organs. T

19 year old strangles 3 weeks old baby

ImageLIFE has always proved to be a paradox; when many millionaires are running from pillar to post asking God for even a child, many others term theirs unwanted and most often get rid of them by all means.

Such can be said to have been the case with a 19-year-old lady, Nsidibe Sunday Effiong, in Akwa Ibom State, who out of frustration strangled her three-week-old baby and dumped her in a pit toilet.

Nsidibe, who hails from Ikot Abasi Idem Village in Ibesikpo Asutan Local Government Area, was arrested and paraded at the Ikot Akpan, Abia headquarters of the Akwa Ibom state police command recently for the crime which she admitted to during interrogation.

Narrating her story to Crime Features, Nsidibe who was paraded alongside other crime suspects by the police command lamented that she dropped out of school while she was in Junior Secondary School 3, (JSS3) when she was pregnant with her first baby.

She said her mother merely tolerated her. They faced untold hardship as the man who was responsible for her pregnancy had abandoned her and the baby and life became miserable for her when she got pregnant for another man less than one year after her first child.

According to her, what drove her into taking such a drastic action was when the young man who impregnated her the second time fled the community and it became extremely impossible for her to take care of the two babies all alone.

“I could not even pay for a room I rented and my mother was suffering so much to feed me and my first child. Before I even gave birth to the second one, the man who was responsible for the pregnancy, a barbing salon attendant, was nowhere to be found, and my mother threatened to throw me and the babies out of the house.

“When I gave birth to the second one, life became so difficult, that was why I decided that instead of punishing my mother, let me throw the baby away. So, I used towel to tie the baby’s neck and put her in the toilet,” she narrated.

Findings by this writer revealed that the teenage girl was not getting proper care after she dropped out of school and that she had rented a room in Ibesipo village which she used as both her living apartment and brothel. All sorts of reportedly men came to have sex with her, after which she was paid peanuts.

Narrating how she took the life of her baby, she said: “One morning, I wrapped a towel round the neck. Though she was crying, I made sure she was dead and then wrapped her all over and sneaked into the pit toilet in the compound, where I threw the dead baby inside”.

Crime Features gathered that Nsidibe’s secret deed came to the open when neighbours who knew she had a new baby suddenly started seeing her without a baby.

Curiously and suspiciously, they launched into action by calling the attention of the police to their discovery.

Investigation by the police later revealed that the lady had strangled the three-week-old baby and dropped her in a pit toilet few weeks after delivery.

Nsidibe has since been taken to court and the police command seemed to know nothing about her case any longer.

Also, in a related development, a baby factory run by a fake medical doctor, Mr. Effiong Mbaba, was uncovered by the police at Ekpene Ukim, in Uruan Local Government Area.

Mbaba, whose house and business premises was raided by the police, was said to be in the business of luring young girls with unwanted pregnancies or the less-privileged girls into getting pregnant after which he would take care of them, then buy the baby off them at delivery, to resell for profit. The operation so far had yielded many dividends as young girls, including students, allegedly thronged the factory to sign on for the deal.

According to the state police commissioner, Mr. Umar Gwadabe, when men of his command, who acted on a tip-off raided the factory, three pregnant girls and four others between the ages of 18 and 20 years were rescued from the procreation factory but the proprietor and other members of the syndicate had escaped to an unknown destination. He said the proprietor’s wife, Mrs. Mbaba, was arrested, even as she allegedly admitted to the crime.

Speaking with newsmen, Mrs Mbaba admitted that she and the husband had been engaging in the business for years and that the last baby they sold yielded a profit of N70,000 to the young mother.
