The body of Jamal Khashoggi was found in a well located on the territory of the residence of the Saudi consul in Istanbul, said Tuesday the president of the VATAN party, Dogu Perinçek.

Reliable sources within the security service in Istanbul have informed me that fragments of Khashoggi’s body have been found in a well in the garden of the residence of the Saudi consul,” he said.

Shortly after, the Turkish President commented on the investigation into the death of Jamal Khashoggi.
The consul’s residence is located a few hundred meters from the Saudi consulate where the journalist disappeared on 2 October.

Last week, Saudi Arabia finally acknowledged the death of the journalist who disappeared in early October at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Riyad assures that Jamal Khashoggi was killed in a brawl and denies having ordered him killed.
Later, the Saudi Ministry of Information claimed that the people who interrogated the journalist at the consulate “tried to hide what happened.” There is currently no official confirmation of the location of Mr. Khashoggi’s body.

Biafra: Igbo group  challenge Kanu, IPOB over 2019 elections

he South-East Renewal Group (SERG) has reacted to the position of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on the 2019 general elections.

he group said Kanu’s declaration that there will be no election in South eastern part of Nigeria, which he claimed to be ‘Biafra territory’, was a joke that shouldn’t be taken seriously.

In a broadcast on Sunday evening, Kanu vowed not to return to the Federal High Court in Abuja, where he was standing trial before he left the country, describing Nigeria as a zoo.

In a broadcast via Radio Biafra, Kanu boasted, “IPOB will liberate Biafra and we will not take part in any election until we get a referendum and this is not negotiable, we will achieve this by every necessary means, we thank Israel for all the contributions they made to IPOB.”

Reacting to the controversial broadcast, Charles Mbani, National President of SERG in a statement forwarded to DAILY POST on Monday, said it was most unfortunate that Kanu was back to cause trouble for people of South-East of Nigeria, who have spent the last one year re-building confidence with their neighbours in their bid to repair the damages caused by him and his IPOB members.

SERG declared that Nnamdi Kanu, and the faction of IPOB that he leads, do not speak for the Igbo as a people.
