22ND JANUARY 2017 : FAMILY WRITERS' SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK

FAMILY WRITERS' SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK

By Maxwell Chuks and Elemeghideonye Nnamdi Stephen
For Family Writers

Welcome to another edition of Family Writers Spotlight of the week. In this edition, we'll briefly present to you trending updates which occurred during the busy and unforgettable week.

* First on Spotlight of the week;
Spotlight zoomed its presence to Katsina state of Nigeria were cattle rustlers was offered amnesty. This was done on regards to the killings the Islamic terrorist group in disguise of cattle rustlers have been carrying out in different parts of the country and according to the Governor of Katsina state, he said granting them amnesty will make them stop violence and killing in Nigeria.
And we are asking- Do you think granting amnesty to those blood thirsty terrorists will reduce or make them stop attacks and killings?

* 'BBOG' group.
You remember who they are?
Exactly... 'Bring Back Our Girls' group led by Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili are on it again.
This time, they said they joined the Nigeria military to sambisa forest to search for the missing Chibok girls.
According to them, "We took military jet, fly and fly round sambisa forest but we couldn't find the girls. In fact, sambisa forest is bigger than Lagos state".
And we said- "Ma, welcome from the tour" but the masses on the media were just like- "Madam, we're getting sick and tired of these super story".

* Gboozaaaaa again..
This one happened in the University of Maiduguri were Boko Haram suicide bombers left a professor and 3 others killed while 15 others sustained injury in the twin blast.

* Down to the University of Nsukka where our spotlight jet dropped us; we saw students of the University decrying over the exorbitant price of kerosene which is sold #400 per liter in the filling station.
The most amazing part of it is that they weren't the only ones crying, shouting and complaining.
In fact, the general public were also crying seriously over same issue.


While others were crying over the high cost, others didn't even see kerosene to buy.
Oh Nigeria, the G-iant of Africa.

* "I have never seen this type of suffering since I joined politics" -Saraki.
The Senate president of Nigeria Bukola Saraki have openly confessed that he has never seen the type of suffering the masses are going through now in Nigeria since he joined politics. He complained bitterly on how the masses can't even afford 2 square meal a day since Muhammadu Buhari emerged as the president of Nigeria.
Ohuooo, they are beginning to talk and complain too.

* During the week; there were tears in Mbaitolu of Imo state where the Nigeria state murdered a Biafran-United States of America Navy veteran whom they thought he came to support the Biafra struggle
Chuks Okebata was assassinated in his hometown by suspected men of the Nigeria.

* Spotlight of the week focused on the occasion where Traditional rulers in Delta staged a walk out of the Peace talks with Osibanjo the Nigeria vice president.
This happened after they disagreed on the issues, points and speech released by the vice president of Nigeria Yemi Osibanjo who visited the area for peace talks to stop pipeline bombing but woefully, the vice president was disappointed and put to shame just as the traditional rulers walked out.

* The Boko Haram hunters (Nigeria military) hunted again.

This time, they hunted the IDP Camp in Borno state.
They Nigeria army during the week; bombed the IDP Camp, more than 100 people was confirmed dead and152 injured.. Among victims are staff of ICRI, Medicine sans frontiers who were in the camp during the airstrike bombardment.
In fact the victims who sustained injuries said the military hit the camp with airstrike two times.
But the military said- "It was a mistake, we thought they were Boko Haram members and Sambisa forest".
After the incident and speech from the military, there were serious reactions and questions from people.
While others were asking-" What kind of mistake was that?", others were asking- "Are you sure you are not the Boko Haram?".

* Straight; we moved on to Gambia where the 8years old son of the president elect Barrow, was bitten by a dog.
Reports have it that he died when he was rushed to the hospital.
What a painful incident....
Rest in Peace son..

* Still in Gambia; President Yahya Jammeh has pleaded with Sirlent and ECOWAS to let court determine his fate whether to remain as president or handover to the president elect.
This plea came after receiving much pressure from ECOWAS and others to hand over the presidential seat to Barrow (the president elect of Gambia).
The political war in Gambia didn't just end after Jammeh pleaded to ECOWAS to let court determine his fate..
24hours to the end of his tenure, Jammeh declared 90days state of Emergency in Gambia.
Huh! We are smelling trouble in Gambia if time is not taken. Though information reaching us says that Jammeh has agreed to step down and go on exile.

* Back to Biafra Land, our spotlight ship took us home where we heard-
"We stand and support IPOB, release Nnamdi Kanu and free Biafra".
Who said it?
Ohaneze Ndi Igbo Anambra Chapter.

* Less than 24hours after Osibanjo's visit; militants bombed the NDPC oil pipeline in Delta state to prove to the whole world that the visit was useless.
Hmm. Mission impossible for Nigeria.

* With tears on our eyes; we (the spotlight crew) maintained focus on the incident that occurred on 20th January 2017 in Igweocha(Port Harcourt) during the peaceful TRUMP SOLIDARITY RALLY organized by the Indigenous People Of Biafra.
The event which we were present turned bloody when the Nigeria military arrived in the scene with armed vans and trucks loaded with soldiers, sophisticated weapons and started shooting sporadically at Biafrans, killed not less than 20 persons, injured many while more than 200 Biafrans who participated in the peaceful rally are still missing.
We the spotlight crew and other journalists were also attacked and shot at by the Nigeria military men who also tore into pieces the Biafra, US and Israeli flags and drove away with many victims injured by bullet wounds.
