According to Chief of Staff, Government House, Chief Tony Okocha, Rivers State Government is unaware of any activities of the Boko Haram sect in the state.
Mr. Okocha reacted to news reports credited to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika, that the sect has spread its activities to some states of Nigeria, including Rivers State.
The Army head spoke before the 20-member Joint Committee on National Security and Intelligence and Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters set up to investigate the alleged extra judicial killings of eight suspected Boko Haram members in the Apo Legislative Quarters, Abuja. He stated that intelligence suggests Boko Haram insurgents operate in the state.

On being humble:  If you have passed through what I have passed through, you will even be more humble than I am.
I have good health, and God shows me what I would have been in terms of sickness and death; it humbles me, and I want to use my good health for him.

For instance, if I did anything wrong during this interview, when you may have left, God will caution me. If I am not humble, I will be out of track. If I was not in the house of God, I would be one of the touts in the motor parks.

We are solicitors to Dr. Emmanuel Fashakin, (hereinafter referred to as ‘our client’) on whose behalf and instructions we write this letter.

We have been informed that our client, a Nigerian citizen, Medical Doctor and Attorney, who resides and practices the two professions in the United States of America, on Friday, the 29th of November, 2013 shortly after disembarking from the Arik Airlines aircraft that brought him from New York City to Lagos at about 5.30 am and while going through immigration formalities at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at Ikeja was asked to step aside as according to the immigration official that attended to him there was a ‘tab’ on his passport, whatever that meant. He obliged only to be told by an operative of the State Security Service that he would have to be interrogated for an undisclosed offence. This incident took place about 5.40am. Since then and up till the time of writing our client has been detained at the airport without any interrogation whatsoever as the official allegedly detailed to carry out the assignment had not been seen.
