Photos of the eight musicians brutally beaten on alleged order of Kebbi Governor's aide for criticising the Governor in their songs

Eight members of a local music group in Kebbi State were physically assaulted, following an alleged order from Governor Bagudu's Personal Assistant, Faruku Musa Yaro popularly known as Enabo.

They alleged victims are Kabiru Arzila, Musa Alle, Ayuba Ibrahim, Shamsu Attahiru, Bello Aljannare, Otono and others.

According to Sahara Reporters, the musicians were said to have incurred the wrath of the governor's aide after using satirical songs to criticise the administration of Gov. Bagudu.

One of the musicians, Arzila, reported that they were picked up at Abacha Hotel around 3:30am on Monday by ten "hoodlums" who broke the door and took them to the residence of Faruku Musa.

He admitted that they criticized the government through their songs because they felt it was their obligation as citizens of the state to condemn whatever is not right.

"It is true that we have criticised the government; as musicians of Kebbi State origin, we owe our people a duty to criticise bad governance and that's exactly what we did in one of our songs'' he told Sahara Reporters.

"We couldn't keep quiet while Governor Bagudu continues to ruin our state through bad governance.

"But we never believed they could resort to violence.

"We were at Abacha Hotel when some hoodlums came and broke the door and took us to the residence of Faruku Musa.

"In his living room, he ordered some hefty men to beat us until we disclosed who sponsored us to criticise the governor with our songs."In fact, he pulled out an AK47 rifle threatening to kill Bello Aljanare.

"Thereafter, he warned us never to malign either the governor or any official of the Kebbi State Government before we were released."

The victims are currently undergoing medical attention and treatment at the hospital.

Director-General of Kebbi Concern Citizens, a civil society organisation, Ibrahim Mohammed, confirmed visiting the victims in hospital.

Yaro however, declined to respond to the allegation when contacted by SaharaReporters.

NDLEA arrests four drug merchants in Ondo State

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) says it has seized and burnt over 14.3 tonnes of illicit drugs and crops in six different camps raided by its operatives in Ondo and Edo states.

Haruna Gagara, NDLEA Commandant in Ondo State, told newsmen in Akure that his team also apprehended a notorious cannabis merchant, Ohimai Ayodele, 51, in Uzebba, suspected to be the mastermind of the killing of NDLEA personnel earlier this year.

“Ayodele’s men opened fire in an attempt to resist his arrest. Seven of our personnel got injured in the course of the incident and they are currently receiving treatment in the hospital,” said the narcotic chief.

Gagara further disclosed that the operatives also arrested a 66-year-old cannabis farmer in a deserted locality along Edo/Ondo border. He said that several cannabis nurseries and transplant farms were discovered and destroyed immediately while weapons were seized.

The state commandant said the patrol also invaded Ajobieye forest in Ute, Ose Local Government Area of Ondo State in an operation that lasted about eight hours.

“This operation led to the burning of 1,225 bags of Cannabis Sativa, while 174.5 kilograms and samples of fresh plants were brought for prosecution purposes.

“I can assure Nigerians that the operation has caused a serious disruption in the drug market and has checked the likely influx of drugs during this Yuletide.

“The impact of the operation will be felt in the illicit drug market nationwide because about 80 per cent of cannabis market across the country obtain their cannabis supply from states touched by this operation.

“The agency is still awaiting drug merchants on the road to intercept cannabis shipments smuggled into the market. We will sustain the current effort,” the NDLEA chief said.

Gagara, who led the team, said the exercise, tagged “Operation Thunder Strike IV”, was launched by a joint task force comprising personnel of the agency from Oyo, Ekiti, Edo Ondo and Osun states and men of the Nigerian Army.

The commandant said the intelligence-driven operation led to the seizure of tonnes of cannabis already harvested and heaped for onward movement to the illicit drug markets. He said his team visited two communities, Uzebba and Hikin, which were notorious for the cultivation of cannabis in Owan Local Government Area of Edo State, bordering Ondo State.
