Benue ACN Chieftain Assassinated

Prof. Steve Ugbah and Gabriel Suswam
By Citizen Reports

A chieftain of the ACN in Benue Charles Ayede was this evening gunned down by suspected assassins. Ayeded and the Benue ACN governorship candidate in the just concluded elections, Professor Steve Ugbah were on their way to Makurdi. The shooting also injured one of Professor Ugbah's strong supporter, Mr Adaa Maagbe.

Assailants opened fire on the team near Kadarko in Nasawara state, 25 minutes away from Makurdi the Benue state capital.

Eyewitness reports said Ayede and Mr Maagbe were riding ahead of Prof. Ugbah when the assassins accosted and killed Ayede. Mr Ayede died on the spot, while Maagbe got shot in the hand. Mr Maagbe  ran into the bush when their car came to a stop and immediately told Prof Ugbah to make a detour back to Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa State. From the nature of the attack, it was clear the assailants were out to kill Prof. Ugbah.

It is widely believed that the ACN candidate clearly defeated Governor Gabriel Suswam in the April 26th Gubernatorial elections, but Suswam characteristically connived with cahoots David Mark, the current Nigerian Senate president and dubious Independent National Electoral Commission officials led by Nasir Ayinlara to   declare the election in the governor's favour of Suswam. The scale of rigging by the People's Democratic Party (PDP)  in the Benue election was so widespread that political observers  noted it would not take tribunal judges more than a few days to  toss Governor Suswam out of power.

Early in the week, the ACN Chairman in Benue, Comrade Abba Yaro was physically attacked by PDP thugs who visited him  to demand that he turn in all the evidence the party had against the PDP to them. Abba Yaro is still receiving treatment for machete cuts at an undisclosed hospital in the state.

Also, last week a lawyer on the Action Congress of Nigeria legal team in the state had gone to one of the local governments to gather  evidence for use at the tribunal and no sooner had he returned than it was discovered he had been poisoned. He was immediately rushed to a hospital in Makurdi run by the one of the Governor's strong supporters. He was pronounced dead shortly after arrival .

Since indicating interest for the office of Governor in 2007, no fewer than 5 high profile persons in Benue have succumbed to suspicious deaths believed to the handiwork of Suswam and his deadly gangs. In 2007,  a former Minister of Police Affairs under Obasanjo, Mr Stephen Ibn Akiga was poisoned to death after declaring interest in running for governor. He was Obasanjo's preferred candidate for that position in Benue State. His death believed to be masterminded by Suswam, paved the way for his emergence as PDP candidate in 2007.

In 2009, a fiery priest whom had preached about the governor's swine fraud for which he (Suswam) was reportedly arrested for in the USA was attacked and killed by thugs loyal to the governor. Last year, Mr Jonathan Biam, an ANPP candidate and formidable challenger to Suswam's re-election bid, died under mysterious circumstances shortly after picking up his form to run for the governorship race.

The attempt on Professor Steve ugbah's life today was aimed ending his formidable resolve to upturn the governor's "victory" at the tribunal.

Governor Suswam has  intense fear for election petitions tribunals and tries very hard avoid any form of electoral judicial scrutiny. In 2003 after losing his reelection bid to the House of Reps to late Mahmud Akiga, he used physical inducements for Mahmud to withdraw the case against him. Elder brother to Mahmud, Stephen Akiga, whom Suswam later poisoned to death, prevailed on his younger brother to give up the case.

In 2007, Senator Daniel Saror of the ANPP again loudly defeated Gabriel Suswam at the governorship polls, but Maurice Iwu fraudulently awarded victory to the former congressman. Saror, sure of his mandate had dragged the governor to court, until veiled threats from a corrupt Tiv Monarch, Tor Tiv Akawe Torkula, got Saror to pull out of the case.

Terver Kakih, governor Suswam's challenger in the 2011 PDP primaries had been beaten too and almost killed on the same road where the assassins   struck today. Mr. Kakih dragged the governor to court for certificate forgery. The case is ongoing.

Critics say it is the  fear of yet another elections petitions tribunal that has gotten the Benue governor to put his gang of killers back on the road again.

When u are digging

When you are digging a pit for your enemy, dont make it too deep, cos you may be the one who might eventually fall inside. Suswam has already dug too deep for his opponents and will surely fall inside himself. Time shall tell!

Benue ACN Chieftain Assassinated

We should have it at the back of our minds that what goes around, comes around. Also, to the good or bad we do, lives with us not after us. Suswan, will live to tell the story. May Allah punish those who do not have human sim party in them.

POORMAN PRAYER, GOD DEY...

Ugbah is GOD sent. dats y he survived dat attack. youths call him TERTINDI (GOD SENT), ORYIMAN (REDEEMER) n MOSES. As it is of old, GOD will continue been wit him like Moses in d bible. Shame on desperate people.

No man can seperate what we create

To endure is greater than to dare; to tire out hostile fortune; to be daunted by no difficulty; to keep heart when all have lost it; to go through intrigue spotless; to forgo even ambition when the end is gained -- who can say this is not greatness?........Please lets look into this case properly and install the right person and judge accordingly. I will never depart from my dear Governor to be.

SAM ODE,,

SR,why are you silent about Suswans twin brother Sam ode,mins for state Niger Delta,they do everything together,he is as bad if not worse than Suswan,Suswan takes orders from him,,SR,do your checks on Sam,with people like him in the cabinet ,I weep for Nigeria,,

ori re kokpe

wats ur own with political parties... U must be very daft and a total waste man... Oloshi lason lason

PDP,....nothing New!

....does anyone in Nigeria really expect anything better from the PDP? Frankly,their ineptitude has not even began yet,....we deserve the kinda leaders we get in Nigeria.

Please, people, please stop

Please, people, please stop all these insult. GEJ is only one person. How can he have power over what individuals do in their states. The police should be blamed for not solving crime and not the president. People should do their jobs or they loose them. Nigeria is a fraud from day one so what's all these noise. This is why we the IGBOS left in 1967 but you people forced us back into hopeless NIGERIA. Now you are realizing what we knew 34 years ago. Deal with it. We have been pressing for National Conference which is the only venue that will give people the chance to decide whether they want to be part of Nigeria or the type of government they are willing to participate in.

AM SORRY FOR NIGER

NOTHING MEANINGFUL WILL COME FROM JONATHEN IN THE NEXT FOUR YEARS. NIGERIA WILL BE WORSE OFF, THIS IS NOT BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT WILL NOT TRY HIS BEST, BUT THESE HAWKS SURROUNDING HIM WILL MAKE POSITIVE CHANGES IMPOSSIBLE.

suswam most go

it will amount to catastrophy if inec tribunal delays jugement between ugbah and suswam till may 29th.we spectators cant wait to see this big thief (g.t.s)put to public shame

Mr. president (GEJ) speak now or never.

Mr. president (GEJ) pretend u 'r not following up d ugly occurances in Benue.ur governor(Seswam) is doing great. Support him, encourage him to kill more but one thing is certain. The blood will soon be too much u can drink. Akiga, Jonathan Biam, Ayede n many others sudden escape from earth was n is pointed towards seswam. With cries in d land demanding for his removal,ur agents (unscrupolus INEC criminals) doctored d result to plant him n Mark back. Speak now or never at all. The nature will frown n rise against them n more TREES will fall, none of them will survive. Pray mountains,rivers and stones removed b4 d next child is born.

shame 2 politicians

shame 2 politicians who take lives as if they r gods.I am not surprised at all,they r not there 2 serve period.

Sovereign National Conference Now

My people,

While we pray for the repose of this good man, let us reflect deeper on where Nigeria is going. People like governor Suswam and his fellow robber in Bauchi state Isa Yuguda retain their positions only because GEJ through the Federal Government foist them on us.

If every state was allowed to go its own way, who are these small rats to even think of standing for governor. A motopark like Suswam who could not rub two coins together in Lagos is mouthing that he is a governor today. Can this flop convince anybody to realistically vote for him if Benue was a confederate state? Or that pimp Yuguda whose path to government house came on top of climbing one woman after another? Look, let us all go our separate ways so that only the serious among us will now lead us instead of these louts.

CLARION CALL

TIV YOUTHS ARISE! THE TIME IS NOW! WE MUST FIGHT FOR OUR
FATHER LAND! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Orhule, thumbs up for ur deep

Orhule, thumbs up for ur deep yet true expressions!
We all know how the end will be. "Aondo huwa mini-skirt, kera ka tion wondu ga". He's striking as evil plotters sit together. The end's surely here dts why they(evil mongers) are desperate! God 4 us all.

Those who live by d sword

Those who live by d sword shall die by d sword. Cowardice only pushes them to commit such evil. If the long arm of the law is not long enough to grab the culprits, then Takuruku Nyamadzenga and Aondo u abaver-idjua and ivor-kor will do justice.
