Babakura Alhaji Fugu’s Assassination: A Call For Public Inquiry -CNPP

Former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo
By SaharaReporters, New York

‘This is a personal initiative. I urge you to forgive and forget the past. I plead with you; give me the chance to mediate between the family and government’.  …..Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Thursday 15 September 2011.

 

‘We are happy with this visit, since 2009, this is the first time any high profile figure would be commiserating with the family.’  ……Late Babakura Alhaji Fugu, Thursday 15 September 2011.

‘The gunman pulled a Kalashnikov rifle from inside the folds of his traditional robes and shot Fugu to death. No one else was wounded in the attack and the gunman apparently walked away.’ … Mr Simeon Midenda, CP Borno State.

‘We’re not responsible, we know our target, and there’s no way we can attack Baba Fugu’s family’.   …. Abdul Qaqa, Spokesman of Boko Haram.

Conference of Nigerian Political Parties {CNPP} condemns in no uncertain terms the killing of Babakura Alhaji Fugu, by an unidentified gunman in Maiduguri Borno State on Saturday 17 September 2011; two days after a meeting with Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.

At the same instance, we call on President Goodluck Jonathan to as a matter of urgent national importance, set up a Public Inquiry to unravel the death of Babakura Alhaji Fugu, brother in-law to the late leader of Boko Haram, Yusuf Mohammed.

We are making this call on the following grounds:-
1.    Boko Haram had denied the killing; their antecedents indicate they don’t take prisoners
2.    Babakura was about to grant interview to international media before his death
3.    The issue of money is doubtful; as Chief Obasanjo is not a Bazaar man
4.    Chief Obasanjo and Senator Ali Sherrif under whose eight-year regime as president and governor, the Frankenstein called Boko Haram mutated; as patriots may furnish the panel with necessary evidence to stop the Boko Haram insurgency.

In sum, a high-powered Public Inquiry composed of genuine patriots is a panacea to the gridlock; which is threatening the peace of our dear fatherland.

National Publicity Secretary

Vote Of No Confidence

This writer has expressed his frustration like millions of Nigerians. It is a shame, where our politicians; executives and legislatures are busy mining the natioanl treasure to their personal gain, security of Nigeria and Nigerians are gravely at stake. A citizen has even lost vote of confidence in the government to perform its obligation in this area, he is calling on vigilante goups to come to our aid. The same vigilante that has been threatening to bomb the Goverment establishments and distrupt Independence day celebration, is now being asked to come to the aid of the goverment, what a shame. This is a reflection that our government is taking the issue concerning our security lightly. As for invitation of foreign intelligence, this shold not be considered at all. You are asking for trouble. Do not put our security, which is already super fragile to a much more greater risk.

Chairmaan, no must say u must contribute esp when yr facts are not all together. Foreign SSS ko, foreign MOSSAD ni!!  =)) ˚°◦hahahaha

UP NORTH

The so call oil from the south will dry up in a forceable fututre, may be 20 years from now. We will manage with our brother from the south till that time. Alternatively, when oil is discovred in any part of the North before the dry up of reserves in the south, we will quietly leave them to eat them selve. But if we endure to be one for the duration of availabilty of cash cow, once it dry up we ask the idiots to go. Arrest Buhari if u can. It is a challenge to all who are bent on tanishing the image of our leader.

lts time for the Niger delta militants and Ohaneze to act

Enough is enough for all these so call bokos,i think its time for the Militants to react. Buhari and co should be brought down.I think the SSS and police in this countrylacks the capacity to investigate any issue because of corruption.If i have my way,let GEJ involve the services of foreign SSS. They are more honest and will do perfect job.

YOU HAVE SPOKEN THE MIND OF NIGERIANS

Although I do not believe in rituals as they have been proven to mean or affect anything, the evil of our past leadership is there for all to see. The Ghana treatment is what Nigeria needs for as long as they are still around, Nigeria will continue to go downhill. They epitomise corruption so we must get rid of them. They are responsible for creating the monsters known as Abia 5. Please sign a petition to bring them to justice.

Re-Pastor Commander Samyoung Onwuzulike

Pastor Commander Samyoung Onwuzulike, Its been quite a while I read such crap commnents. You claim to be a pastor, however you go ahead to heap insults on someone you barely know. I think you are so full of shit and should keep your thought process to yourself. Dont go around public forums with this sort of rubbish running out from your lips.

dont be bias

hey momooooooooooooo.stop including d prominent person lk gen buhari with dat radical devil obj.

Killing of innocent lifes

Killing of innocent lifes doesnt give justice to killing of a boki leader. I just think this boki guys are sick. we v too many issues in Nigeria to deal with than to be dealing with this.
Unfortunately we v a leader dat doesnot even v a clue to wats going on or how to go about it.
Allah help us all in this country.

I am a Minister of Peace with equal Rights and Grace

The Peace is made for all, not for Boko Haram only.Sir Obasanjo we can deceive men but we can not deceived God who sees all evils of men. 'am very much sorry for poor Baba Fugu whom you draged to death to sacrificed him to your gods of iron.How can you Obasanjo talk of peace where you killed my own sister and Queen of Umunoha Victory Nwachineke in Onitsha with other 699 Youths of MOASSOB. You killed the people of Ogoni, Odi and Zakibiam. Dont provoke me with your hide and seek game. I said it now it's time for Obasanjo and his group to go, enough is enough. Leave Nigerians alone with your sacrifices and rituals. During your last regime after your Ramadan we have Air Crash that took the life of Bolingo and may Nigerians.Nigerians it's time to flushout all our enemies. Starting from OBJ, Gen Buhari his oil Minister. Gen Babangida his boy, and millions of them if President Johnathan dont listen to us he will follow them.

STAY FOCUSED DERI

BUT WHAT I AM SAYING IS THAT IF YOUR ALLEGATIONS ARE NOT RUMOURS WHY WONT THE GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATE AND BRING BUHARI TO JUSTICE? AGAIN TO SAY THAT BUHARI WAS WITH ABACHA WHEN HE(ABACHA) KILLED LAGOSIANS IS LIKE SAYING WOLE SOYINKA, OR TAI SOLARIN WAS WITH IBB WHEN DELE GIWA WAS KILLED. I DONT SEE HOW THAT WILL HELP NIGERIA NOW OR MAKE SOYINKA A CRIMINAL. I HAD HOPE IN GEJ AND WHAT I WANTED WAS FOR HIM TO DELIVER. MANY UNELECTED LEADERS FROM THE NORTH HAVE USED POWER WHEN THEY ARE WRONG, SO WHY CANT JONATHAN USE POWER WHEN HE IS RIGHT? IF BUHARI OR THE SULTAN IS A THREAT TO PEACE WHY WILL THE PRESIDENT FEEL COMFORTABLE IN DOING NOTHING ONLY TO POINT OUT THEY ARE CAUSING THE PROBLEMS IN NIGERIA? IS AS IF IT IS NOT THE PRESIDENTS JOB TO SECURE THE LIVES AND PROPERTIES OF NIGERIANS OR THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS THE PRESIDENT IS SCARED OF. IF PEOPLE GET THAT IMPRESSION THEY WILL DISREGARD THE LAW AND THIS IS THE CAUSE OF THE LAWLESSNES YOU ARE SEING NOW.

ASK OBJ

The writing on the wall is clear: OBJ knows more about this than meets the eye.

Fact 1: OBJ paid a surprise, surreptitious visit to Baba Fugu and Mohammed Yusuf's family

Fact 2: Baba Fugu said Boko Haram and OBJ's govt have a history together, Boko Haram emerged during OBJ's administration according to him

Fact 3: He was clearly assassinated before telling the whole world the real story

Fact 4: Boko Haram has denied responsibility. Boko Haram is never afraid or "shy" of claiming responsibility for attacks it has perpetrated, so why would they lie this time around? They didn't kill him

CONNECT THE DOTS. OBJ IS CENTRAL TO THIS BOKO HARAM ISSUE. GEJ IS TOO CLUELESS AND STUPID TO HOLD HIS PUPPET MASTER RESPONSIBLE!!

@ From Mammam to IBRAHIM SAAD,

U seem to be acting as if u spent most of yr adult life in Somalia and not Nigeria. Was yr Buhari not with Abacha when he went about killing lagosians with bombs and blamimg it on Nadeco? Buhari seems to have graduated from that incident to boko haram. Who killed Pa rewane, bola ige, dikibo. marshal harry among others in Nigeria? Their deaths remained unresolved b/c gej was presido then abi? Who invited the sultan to comment on the yusuf and BH? Fugu said BH was cloned by the Zamfara state gov.Fugu was not murderd b/c of OBJ-he was killed b/c of the interview he wanted to grant SR period!

Division, bitterness, show of Class, Racism

Division, bitterness, show of Class, Racism is all i see and read in this forum. Please my fellow Nigerians, put aside all these and let love and unity bind us all together, until then can we see the truth and move forward.

I DONT HAVE TO DERI

I DONT HAVE TO FIND THE KILLERS OF DELE GIWA THAT WAS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE GOOD FOR NOTHING GOVT OF BABANGIDA. THAT WAS ONE IN A LINE OF SEVERAL GOOD FOR NOTHING GOVTS NIGERIA HAS THE MISFORTUNE TO ENDURE. WHEN ANY PAPER REPORTS THAT A CRIME HAS TAKEN PLACE AND GAVE THE NAME OF THE CRIMINAL (AS A HIGH PROFILE INDIVIDUAL LIKE BUHARI) LIKE YOU SAID, A RESPONSIBLE, RESPONSIVE, PURPOSEFUL, COMPETENT, AND FEARLESS PRESIDENT WILL ORDER THE I.G. TO INVESTIGATE. IF THE SUSPECT IS FOUND GUILTY THEN HE MUST BE PUNISHED. IT IS WHERE THERE IS NO GOVT, NO PRESIDENT THAT CRIMINALS WILL ENJOY IMPUNITY. SO DERI YOU WILL DO WELL TO PUT BUHARI AND THE SULTAN FOREVER BEHIND BARS BY FURNISHING THE PRESIDENT WITH THE EVIDENCE AGAINST THOSE INDIVIDUALS.

'NUR' ke, 'FUR' ni!

Posted by Deri: "Sources close to the JTF told the Nigerian Tribune that the late Fugu was shot by a loyalist of the wanted Mallam Mamman Nur, who is wanted for masterminding the bombing of the UN House on August 26."

This piece of sh:: from Tribune was meant for the consumption of those who are not intellectually capable of understanding the web of cynical intrigues that might be surrounding this case.

The government and the media, and their agents like Deri, would continue spoon-feed you guys with all sorts of stories about'Nur' and all such other dummies. 'NUR' ke, 'FUR' ni!

IBRAHIM SAAD-HAVE U FOUND THE KILLERS OF DELE GIWA

See how some unthinking minds would want to play the blame game-the bbc cannot air a story without having the facts-they have often made contacts with either Aljezeera, the neo colonialist mouth piece-BBC hausa service or Press Tv Iran. Fugu was killed by boko haram on the orders of buhari through Nur-who is not buying that story u? Are u not a fulani? why must you buy a story from the berom man or woman-his blood is not pure enough to shake hands with you.

WE HAVE A PRESIDENT

DERI YOU CONTINUE TO BAFFLE ME IN YOUR ATTEMPT TO DEFEND THE PRESIDENT. YOU AND OTHER NIGERIANS KEEP WORKING UNDER THE ASSUMPTION THAT NIGERIA HAS NO PRESIDENT NO GOVERNMENT. IF ANY NIGERIAN CAN BE KILLED AND EVERYONE IS NOT EVEN TALKING ABOUT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF OUR GOVERNMENT TO FIND THE KILLERS WHAT DOES THAT SAY OF OUR GOVT? WE HAVE AN EXECUTIVE PRESIDENT WITH EXECUTIVE POWERS IF BUHARI OR ANY ONE FOR THAT MATTER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MURDER THEN WHAT IS THE PRESIDENT WAITING FOR? IS HE AFRAID OF BUHARI OR NORTHERN ELDERS? I DONT THINK SO HE IS JUST A CLUELESS WHIMP WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO IN THE FACE OF A CRISIS. WE WILL PAY DEARLY FOR THIS BECAUSE A PRESIDENT WHO STIRS ETHNIC HATRED AS A COUNTER MEASURE FOR HIS CLUELESSNESS IS NOT WORTHY OF THE TITLE OF COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OR EXECUTIVE PRESIDENT. I AM REALLY SORRY FOR NIGERIA.

Jonathan's errand boys foolishly trying to deceive

@ Deri: Nobody is buying the fabricated nonesense that Boko Haram killed Alhj. Fugu. By the way, BH has denied any involvement. Nigerians are more convinced than ever before that the profligate and criminal SSS, police and army (in the form of that violent outfit called JTF) masterminded the cold-blooded murder of Fugu. The lazy Jonathan regime has as so-called security adviser a very corrupt man known as Azazi who was involved with the illegal selling of military equipment under his care to Niger-Delta "militants". The JTF in Maiduguri is now part and parcel of the security problem. They rape women and children, commit robberies, steal and harrass or kill innocent citizens. How can this ragtag, unprofessional killing machine under crooked bosses at the illegitimate Jona presidency provide security? The PDP mafia also murdered Bola Ige and Marshal Harry.Azazi, Jonathan and their American masters should be held accountable for Fugu's murder.

@OKAFOR, USUAL IGBO MAN SHOW OF SUPPORT 4 BOKO HARAM

THE Joint Task Force (JTF) operating in the Borno axis has identified the killer of an in -law of Boko Haram founder Babakura Fugu, who was assassinated on Saturday.Fugu was killed for speaking on behalf of the group with former president Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, who was in Borno, the Boko Haram stronghold on Friday.Sources close to the JTF told the Nigerian Tribune that the late Fugu was shot by a loyalist of the wanted Mallam Mamman Nur, who is wanted for masterminding the bombing of the UN House on August 26.It was leant that one Ustaz Mote, who grew up in the Fugu family, was used to carry out the murder

@pat kolawole buhari killed fugu

What will Jonathan gain from assassinating Fugu. Its to his credit that the police officers who killed the head of boko haram yusuf are being tried. It has never happened in the history of our country before. Although me still thinks they shld be freed. The murder of Fugu is an insult on the Yorubas. That an elder statesman like OBJ made attempts to initiate peace moves over the boko haram issue, only for his contact to be murdered by agents of buhari and boko haram-because they dont want their names to be revealed. Here we are with a half baked rat, Kolawole claiming that secuirity agents killed Fugu. This guy Pat must be insane or a fake PHD holder fro, Zunguru village.

PDP-Pres Jonathan's security Responsible!

i quite believe much more that president Jonathan's security agencies are resonsible for the killing of Alhaj Babakura Fugu.Nigerians security agencies are manned by modern security-deficient and corrupt personnels,just as president Jonathan unconstitutionally and illegally plotted and removed honourable justice Isa Ayo Salami from office as the president of the Federal Appeal court/presidential election-petition-tribunal and planted his crony and Jonathan bribed cohorts into that office in order to repeat 2007 presidential petition S30 million dollars-bribery ascheme that validated late president Umaru musa Yar'dua/vice president Jonathan's malfeasance 2007 poll which eventually saw Jonathan replacing-succeeding the late Yar'dua and the current inept,incapable,lacked of capacity and untransaprent president Jonathan rigmarol corrupt failed-hip in Nigeria.Jonathan can't give the good leadership he does not possesse as president to Nigerians.

"! i guess the stupid aboki is now having fun with the virgins? or better still with MO. a begiiiiiii!"

Or with that stupid naked bearded man in the picture you hang in your c's and blasphemously call 'son of god' and 'god' at the same time. Stupid lot!

Jonathan government responsible for murder of Fugu

It is becoming clear that some people in the corrupt and violent SSS, police, army and their allies in crime in the Jonathan regime do not want peace. These allies in crime benefit financially from the huge so-called security vote. The scandalous amounts voted for 'security' are always stolen and shared by their thieves in government. It is not in the interest of these criminals in government that peace is established. With increased insecurity, the SSS, poice, army bosses and their "friends" in the incompetent Jonathan regime keep laughing to the bank. It is clear that some goons in the Jonathan government conspired to murder Alhj. Fugu and other Boko Haram people in order to provoke the latter. Also, the American masters of the clueless Jonathan may be orchestrating the killings(with the aid of corupt Nigerians)so as to justify their escalating military presence in Nigeria. Nigerians, pls. wake up and smell the coffee!

BOKO HARAM Security CRISIS

Let us not become too sentimetal over issues that were clearly fuddled by executive incapacity. This Boko Haram saga need not have been this bad but for some unacknoeledged ffacts.
1. That attack by the Police in Maiduguri on the funeral procession that probably became the "last straw"
2. The excessive force used by the President to quell the "uprising" leasding to thecold blooded murder of some Nigerians by the Police.
3. The killing of Yusuf Mohammed the leader of Boko Haram now looks like a cover-up, to cover who are Prominent Nigerians that were clients to the Boko haram and who in a ll probability gave him the cars that the Police were qiuck to show case earlier.
4. The belated charges against individual Police Officers for the murders committed before the eyes of the Military is running away from the issue.

Oil 4 food!

Easy to 4get dat naija survived on g/nut b4 dey knew dey hv oil. Kudos to d north. Then so b it. Use d oil u hv get d food u need frm d north. Lazy morons.

Osita, what about the Apo Six?

I want to ask why the murder of the in-law of a man (Yusuf of Boko Haram) who murdered 12 Nigerian Police men and many civilians is so important that this Osita fool should ask for an enquiry. Since the cruel murder of the Apo Six many years ago by the Nigerian Police, the guilty police men are still walking free and nothing is being done. So Osita should shut up. Let us get justice for the innocent before crying over the murder of the supporter of Boko Haram.

hope he is now in the hottest part of hell!

as if there are no pressing issues to deal with?! i guess the stupid aboki is now having fun with the virgins? or better still with MO. a begiiiiiii!
