'I'm not a loser' - Rochas replies APC

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has taken exception to the remark of the Acting Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, who described him as a bad loser in politics.

Issa-Onilu, had in a statement on Thursday, described some APC governors including Okorocha as bad losers in respect of the governorship primaries of the party.

A statement issued in Owerri on Saturday, by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Sam Onwuemeodo explained that Okorocha, contrary to what Issa-Onilu would want people to believe and other governors, are working for the progress of the party with the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.

The governor observed that disagreements with the party leadership were bound to arise and advised the National Publicity Secretary on the need to exercise caution in order not to create a wrong impression.

Okorocha warned against castigating governors, who worked for the party from the onset, insisting that Issa-Onilu misfired by doing so and had sent a bad signal to the world.

At least six persons including a police corporal were on Friday killed by gunmen in Gurbin Bore village, Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State, the News Agency of Nigeria has reported.

The state police spokesperson, Mohammed Shehu, said the community was attacked at about 10 pm by assailants numbering about 100.

It was not immediately clear why the village was targeted.

Zamfara, located in Nigeria’s north west, has been hit by several deadly attacks in the last one year by people described by authorities as “bandits”, who also steal livestock.

The police spokesman said three people were severely wounded in Friday’s attack.

“Eleven vehicles including a police vehicle, three motorcycles and five kiosks were set ablaze by the hoodlums,” he said.

Mr Shehu said the “bandits” who were suspected to have come from Dumburum forest were engaged by a combined team of counterterrorism operatives, comprising police Mobile Force, and Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) personnel stationed in the area.

He said the attackers were being trailed and would be arrested and brought to justice.
