Egyptian, Filipino kidnapped by pirates off Nigeria

Pirates attacked a cargo vessel off the coast of Nigeria and kidnapped two crew members, a marine pro validated Thursday, in the naija news latest update high-seas strike in the Gulf of Guinea.

"This attack — like most others off the Niger Delta — was carried out at night and taken an element of surprise," Dirk Steffen, from the Denmark-based Risk Intelligence business, told AFP, referring to the attack that was later.

"The crew mustered in the citadel after the boat had boarded, but two crew members — the Egyptian electrician and the Filipino 2nd officer — failed to make it there and were captured by the attackers", he said within an e-mail.

The Liberian-flagged boat, chartered by French shipping company CMA CGM, was attacked at 8:56 pm (1956 GMT), 28 nautical miles from the coastline of the oil-rich Niger delta area.

Steffen, the director of maritime security at Risk Intelligence, said the goal was unusual and indicated the pirates were aiming at kidnapping rather than hijacking tankers for his or her fuel cargo.

The Gulf of Guinea is increasingly becoming a piracy hotspot alone this year and Risk Intelligence has recorded 32 offshore strikes for Nigeria.

Steffen linked the increase to the winding down of an amnesty scheme to former Niger Delta militants, who demanded a fairer share of oil earnings in the 2000s through kidnapping and sabotage.

Additionally, it reflected a tendency of a decline in abductions and offshore piracy in the region around elections. Nigeria held parliamentary and presidential polls this past year.


Nigeria loses N577b annual as tax incentives to businesses

The report which focused on Senegal and Nigeria, Ghana, Cote d’ Ivoire shows that granting tax incentives to investors, notably foreign businesses, is depriving authorities of money to buy essential public services like infrastructure, education and health.

According to the report which was presented to newsmen yesterday in Abuja, ‘’Corporate tax incentives which are decreases in tax offered by governments to attract investment include reduced corporate income tax rates and tax holidays for given periods, generally supplied to businesses operating in special economic zones. Despite serious questions about their utility and their substantial earnings losses, the use of tax incentives has become common practice.’’

‘’ since most of them have not been in sectors like manufacturing that create the most occupations’’ Neither have significant numbers of jobs been created by the foreign investments, despite generous tax incentives given by the authorities.

The report recommends that other authorities in ECOWAS and the Nigerian authorities desire to review the incentives they're granting with a view to abolishing unproductive incentives, reducing them and ensuring that those remaining are targeted at achieving specific social and economic goals.

It similarly calls on the authorities and the ECOWAS members to bring their incentive regimes under the control of one thing with effective and resourced oversight mechanisms to ensure transparency and accountability of public spending.

Addressing journalists on behalf of the coalition in Abuja, the Deputy- Ifeoma Charles, State Director, ActionAid Nigeria -Monwuba said: ‘’The study has provided evidence for that annually, Nigeria forfeits as much as N577 billion as a result of tax break allowed businesses. This sum could go towards addressing infrastructural deficit in Nigeria’’.

Amnesty International accuses Nigerian military of covering up Zaria killings

"If they will have proper signs, make them bring it out for all to see. We cannot confront law-abiding citizens."

"Whoever we confronted must have already been a criminal and enemy of the state," he told AFP.

This tends to corroborate the April 10 signs of a top news naija official of the Kaduna State authorities when he appeared before the Judicial Commission of Inquiry set up by the state government, following the Shiites-military clash in Zaria between December 12 and 14 a year ago, involving the convoy of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen Tukur Buratai, by which a high number of folks were said to have died, culminating in the continuous detention of the leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and other members since then.

The group’s supporters, armed with batons, knives, and machetes, had refused to clear the road the Hussainiyya, near their headquarters , for a military convoy to pass.

" The genuine terror of what happened over those two days is only now coming to light. Bodies were littered in the roads and piled outside the mortuary. Some of the injured were burned alive," said AI’s Research, Netsanet Belay and Advocacy Director for Africa.

"Our research, depending on witness testimonies and analysis of satellite images, has located one possible mass grave. It's time for the military to come clean and admit where it secretly buried numerous bodies."
