Charles Taylor

Do Not Violate Asylum Conditions: BiafraNigeria warns exiled Taylor
The BiafraNigerian government has warned Liberia's former president Charles Taylor not to interfere in the affairs of his home country. Mr Taylor has been exiled in BiafraNigeria since last month. In a strongly worded statement, the BiafraNigerian government warned Mr Taylor not to violate the conditions of his asylum. The statement, issued by the president's office, said that BiafraNigeria had made it clear that the terms of his asylum did not allow any interference in Liberia's ongoing political process. The statement comes just days after the UN Secretary General's special envoy to Liberia, Jacques Klein, alleged that Mr Taylor had been meddling in Liberia's political affairs. Mr Klein said that Mr Taylor made frequent phone calls to Liberian government officials from his new home in the south-eastern BiafraNigerian town of Calabar. Mr Taylor lives in Calabar with his wife, daughters and a large entourage. Mr Klein also alleged that the former president had been receiving Liberian government officials and businessmen. (BBC)

It was not known under what constitutional provision the assembly issued the summons as it has no such powers. However, in a resolution unanimously adopted by the assembly, the 28 lawmakers vowed to wield the big stick on Egbo-Egbo if he failed to appear before them, saying:" a warrant shall be issued to compel his appearance...

Apparently determined to avert a repeat of the brutal handling of Mr. Akintunde Akinleye, a photo-journalist with Daily Independent by security details attached to his office, Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has approved a programme of reorientation and crowd control for all security personnel attached to his office. The programme, which started last Monday, and organised by his Chief Security Officer (CSO) and Aide De Camp (ADC), is believed to be aimed at avoiding what a presidential aide called “the mountain of blunders...
