Katsina State trended with over four thousand reactions following the alleged abduction of an unknown number of students by gunmen.

The incident is said to have occurred at Government Science Secondary School in Kankara Local Government Area of the State.

Some said it was good that the kidnapping happened when President Muhammadu Buhari is in the state so he could see things for himself and probably change tactics in the fight against insecurity across the country.

Sam Nda-Isaiah

Nigerians have taken to social media to mourn the demise of the publisher of Leadership Newspaper, Mr Sam Nda-Isaiah.

According to the Leadership, Nda-Isaiah, who was a media mogul, writer, politician, and serial entrepreneur, died last night in Abuja after a brief illness. He was 58.

Many prominent Nigerians, including President Muhammadu Buhari, expressed shock and sadness at the death of Mr Sam Nda-Isaiah.

President Buhari in a statement by Femi Adesina, described Nda-Isaiah as “a friend and ally.”

Another sympathizer @danladindayebo, said "If there was one man who ranged with raw intelligence and ease through the worlds of medical sciences, journalism, business and politics, that man was Sam Nda-Isaiah. He had a distinguished career at Pfizer after studying pharmacy at OAU, Ile-Ife."

They, however, prayed God to grant his soul peaceful repose.


The Cable News Network (CNN) has objected to a summon by the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution of Victims of SARS Related Abuses.

The panel had asked that CNN’s team of reporters appeared before it to give evidence on their reportage of the Lekki toll gate shooting.

But CNN, however, instructed its lawyers to file an objection on the ground that the panel lacks jurisdiction to summon them since they are not a business with physical operation in Nigeria.

While some argued that there was no basis for the panel, which is controlled by the government to invite CNN, others said the media outfit ought to have appeared to prove its report.
