Northerners Panic, Cry Out Over Plot To Sack Them From Abia After 70 Bodies Were Found

The Northern Community residing in Umuchieze Cattle Market in Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State has contested the government’s allegations of decomposing corpses around the market.

News ToGo reports that the Northerners saw the development as an excuse to evict them from the land they have occupied since 2005.

Governor Alex Otti had earlier stated that decomposed bodies, headless corpses, and skeletons were discovered in the market, and ransom for kidnappings was often dropped in the vicinity. He expressed concerns about the escalating insecurity in the Umunneochi/Isuikweato axis, labeling the market as a hub for criminals and kidnappers. Consequently, he ordered traders to reside with the natives in neighboring communities, intending to make the market non-residential.

In response, the community’s spokesperson, Buba Abdullahi, expressed dissatisfaction with the governor’s stance, rejecting the government’s claims about decomposed bodies and criminal activities in the market. Abdullahi contested the recent demolition of houses in the market, asserting that the community had peacefully coexisted with the locals for years.

Abdullahi emphasized their population of 15,000 and the 80 hectares of land donated to them by the previous government. He argued that forcing them to relocate to neighboring villages would equate to expulsion from Abia, highlighting their willingness to collaborate with the government to address security challenges in the area.

He further appealed, stating, “It is unjust, unfair, and ungodly for anyone to prevent any Nigerian from staying in any part they so desire in Nigeria.”

JUST IN: TB Joshua's Emmanuel TV Channel Removed

YouTube has removed the primary channel associated with the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua—Emmanuel TV.

News ToGo reports that the channel, which broadcasts the religious activities of the church, was taken down following allegations against the late preacher. This action comes after the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) aired controversial documentary reports about allegations of torture and rape linked to TB Joshua.

The termination of Emmanuel TV’s channel on YouTube is a response to the platform’s policies against hate speech, cyberbullying, and harassment, particularly targeting survivors of sexual violence. The move follows openDemocracy’s report on more than 50 abusive videos amplifying attacks against Joshua’s accusers.

The documentary by BBC World Service, in collaboration with openDemocracy, featured whistleblowers who made on-the-record allegations of sexual and psychological torture, financial fraud, and criminal negligence by Joshua. In a disturbing backlash, YouTube accounts promoting SCOAN shared archival video footage depicting experiences of these abuse survivors, leading to the termination of Emmanuel TV’s channel.
