Jones Abiri: How Buhari Led FG, Charges Activist And Journalist On Terrorism

The Federal Government of Nigeria under the command of President Mohammadu Buhari apprehend Jones Abiri, who happened to be a Journalist, and he is charged with three offences, namely, terrorism, fraud and economic sabotage. The Journalist was charged on the three counts on Wednesday as reported by his legal advisor, Samuel Ogala, NIGERIA NEWS reports.

NIGERIA NEWS gathered the fact why Mr. Jones was charged with terrorism and it is as a result of the court reports that states that he blackmailed the officials at Agip and Shell through text message to meet his requests, otherwise he would be left with no choice to blow off their oil installations

He was also charged for ordering sets of crooks who called themselves activists to vandalize the Bayelsa state oil pipelines. The period reported for committing the offences is as of date back between the month of June to July of 2016.

Mr Jones Abiri was arrested by the Bayelsa state security service and he spent two years in their custody without charging him to the court of law. Immediately he was released, the charges were then brought against him some months later.

Mr Jones pleaded not guilty of the offences and said that he was only haunted for his journalism work that brings to the limelight the corrupt conducts of oil companies and the intervention of the Federal Government in the Niger Delta region. The media rights advocates have taken his matter up and have requested that all sort of court charges be nullified.

Police Reform Bill Has Been Rejected By NASS

The Police reform bill has been rejected by the National Assembly, NASS during a plenary session in which the legal practitioner included that it does not follow the 1999 constitution and needed an amendment if the bill is going to be implemented. The plenary session took place on Wednesday since about a month that the bill was passed by the Senate, NIGERIA NEWS reports.

The bill could have repealed the Police Act 2004 if it is passed. The bill entails a lot but here are few of what the bills entail: that a sum of 100, 000 naira would be paid if any person should inflict physical harm or contact on any police officer on duty or rather be charged to six months imprisonment. The same amount of file would be paid for obstruction or resistance of a police officer to carry out its duty. The sum of 20, 000 would be paid by any police officers involving in the usage of drugs other intoxication material while on duty.

The chairman on house committee for the police affairs, Abubakar Lawal quoted the following:

“Unless we amend the constitution, we can not implement the bill. The bill also proposed the reduction of the number of DIGs, are we moving forward or backward? The bill is also referring to the Police as police force which is against the constitution,”

The Deputy speaker, Lasun Yusuf back Mr. Abubakar fact up by insinuating the following that:

“Most of the provisions of this bill are against the constitution. This bill is complicating matters. How can we talk about consultation with the governor when the commissioners of police are not answerable to the governors,”

Mr. Tobi Okechukwu state that Nigeria needs state police and back it up with a statement that, “the present structure is defective. The governors have all agreed that there is a need for state police. Judging by the crime rate, we need to consider the structure of the police. When you take an Anambra man to Borno, it will take him time to adjust.”

While Mohammed Monguno stood in favour of the bill, the Yakubu Dogara as the speaker put the police reform bill on vote and majority go against it.
