Nigerian feminists have urged the Federal Government, through the National Human Rights Commission, to probe the forced abortions report allegedly perpetuated by the military in the northeastern part of Nigeria.

An international news agency, Reuters, had accused the Nigerian Army of running a programme where forceful abortions were carried out on female victims of Boko Haram/Islamic State in West African Province.

The report claimed that the Army carried out the abortions without the persons’ consent and that at least 10,000 pregnancies had been illegally terminated.

These were contained in an investigation published by the news agency in December, 2022.

The probe, according to Reuters, was based on the accounts of 33 victims, hospital workers, and security officials, as well as documents gathered.

Reacting in a statement obtained by The PUNCH on Tuesday, the feminists, namely, Chioma Agwuegbo, Fadekemi Akinfaderin, Dr Leena Hoffmann, Ifeoma Ikwueme, Azeenarh Mohammed, Nana Nwachukwu, Lola Okolosie, Omolara Oriye and Buky Williams, said, “Friday marks six weeks since the Chief of Defence Staff, Major General Lucky Irabor, called on the NHRC to launch an investigation into the abortion report.”

They therefore called on the NHRC to make public its plans to take the investigation forward, expand its remit to look at the alleged killings of children, and commit to doing so in a victim-centred way.

Bamidele Onalaja and his wife, owners of RevolutionPlus

Nigerian celebrities have started disassociating themselves from RevolutionPlus, a property company owned by Bamidele Onalaja, following an allegation of N15million scam by a customer of the company.

It was reported that one of the customers of RevolutionPlus revealed that he paid the sum of N15 Million for some landed property in 2020 but till now, he is yet to be allocated.

He made it known that the company has been playing games by notifying him of allocation only to say they are clearing the bush around his property whenever he requests for inspection.

The customer visited RevolutionPlus to cause a scene and express his displeasure in the company.

Following this, some of their ambassadors including actors, actresses, comedians have withdrawn from their deal with the company.

Few hours after the fraud allegation surfaced, Nasboi, an instagram comedian who had posted a video to promote RevolutionPlus brought the video down and tendered an apology to his followers, while making it known that he has nothing to do with the company and didn’t know they were fraudulent.

Also, Toyin Abraham, who has been with the company for sometime revealed that she has stopped working for the company which could be connected to the incessant fraud allegations.

It is worthy of note that this isn’t the first time the company will be enmeshed in a messy scam scandal as this. Sometime last year, the company was called out by several customers for not allocating properties for years to customers.
