Former Nigeria’s president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has written another letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, telling the latter to put an end to violent attacks across Nigeria.
The former president said the world has been warning Nigeria against descending into a state of violence because any outbreak would be difficult to contain.
According to Obasanjo, the country has been consumed by violence and ethnic divisions in a manner not seen for decades since President Buhari took over the mantle of leadership in 2015, Premium Times.
Legit.ng gathers that the former president said Buhari would have to stop fanning “the embers of hatred, disaffection and violence” for him to be able to stop the “smouldering ethnic agitations”.
He also urged armed herdsmen and others to stop their violent attack across the country and publicly state their grievances.’
Obasanjo also advised the Nigerian Armed Forces against shaming military personnel in public, saying such could be counterproductive.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the police command in Ondo, through its spokesman, Femi Joseph, on Saturday, July 13, revealed how Funke Olakunrin, the second daughter of Afenifere leader, Reuben Fasoranti, was killed by some kidnappers on Friday, July 12.
Confirming the sad development in his speech to newsmen, Joseph admitted that he was not aware that Olakunri was Fasoranti’s daughter.
In his report on the details of the victim’s murder, the police spokesman said:
“It happened at a spot between Kajola and Ore, where some hoodlums numbering about 15, attacked two vehicles, 1 Toyota Land Cruiser and 1 Camry.
“The the Land Cruiser was carrying five passengers, including the deceased, which we later identified as one Funke Olakunrin. They shot the woman, we rushed her to the hospital, but we lost her.
“Other four occupants that were abducted, we have rescued them. Inside the Camry too, we had three occupants, they were also abducted, but we have rescued them. We have rescued a total of seven persons taken during the attack.”
On Sunday, Beyonce and Meghan Markle shared a hug on the red carpet of the Lion King premiere in London – and now fans are learning what the pair talked about during their encounter.
“My princess,” Beyonce, wearing a shimmering gold gown, was recorded saying as she embraced Meghan, who donned a black frock with a semi-sheer top and sleeves.
The singer was also overheard telling the Duchess of Sussex “the baby, so beautiful,” referencing Meghan and Prince Harry’s 2-month-old son, Archie. Bey also said that she and JAY-Z, who was by her side, “love you guys,” according to multiple outlets.

When Harry finally joined the conversation, he reportedly told Beyonce, “you’ve been rather busy.” “Congrats on the birth of your baby,” the rapper told the prince.
Then Harry asked how Bey and JAY’s 2-year-old twins, Rumi and Sir are. Beyonce replied, “They are not here. They don’t come on every trip. We left them at home. They would love to have been here.”
JAY was also overheard telling the duke and duchess, “The best advice I can give you: always find some time for yourself.”
A source told ET on Monday that Meghan was expected to attend the Lion King London premiere, unless Archie kept her at home at the last minute.
Meghan has slowly been venturing out to public events in recent days, making a surprise appearance at Wimbledon to cheer on her good friend, Serena Williams, on July 4, and bringing Archie to the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day at Billingbear Polo Club in Berkshire on July 10. Meghan watched Harry play in the polo match. By her side was Kate Middleton, who brought her three kids — 5-year-old George, 4-year-old Charlotte, and 1-year-old Louis — and watched Prince William play on the opposite team.
Then, on Saturday, Meghan returned to Wimbledon, with both Kate and Pippa Middleton, to once again watch Williams compete in the tournament; ultimately Williams was defeated.
