BT EXCLUSIVE | How Buhari Killed the Brother of Nollywood Actor Nkem Owoh (Osuofia)

by on January 29, 2015

Bartholomew Owoh, one of the three young Nigerians executed by General Buhari for an offence that did not carry the death penalty is the elder brother of Nollywood actor, Nkem Owoh popularly known as Osuofia, emerging facts indicate.

A source close to the Nollywood actor revealed this to BREAKING TIMES on Thursday on condition of anonymity. According to the source, Nkem Owoh and the rest of his family have not recovered from the trauma of the cold-blooded murder of the three young men, particularly their brother and son, Bartholomew Owoh.

It will be recalled that Buhari, while he was military Head of State promulgated a decree prescribing death penalty for anyone caught for drug trafficking. But the trio of Lawal Ojuolape (30), Bernard Ogedengbe (29) and Bartholomew Owoh (26) committed the offence before Buhari came into power. The laws of Nigeria at the time the offence was committed did not prescribe the death penalty. When Buhari took over power, he insisted the young men should be executed and they were killed publicly by firing squad.

“Nkem Owoh and his family are so distraught with Buhari for killing their brother at the young age of 26. Every time he sees Buhari on TV, he weeps bitterly over his brother. He can’t even believe that Buhari has the nerve to seek re-election as President”, the source told BREAKING TIMES.

      Are you daft so much that you didn’t read it that as at the time of committing the crime it was just a six month jail term offence until your brother took over and decree that they should be killed. I don’t blame him because he has never had a son and to you let someone kill your brother through firing squad and feel the pains. Callous people from the devil.

    Apparently you guys are serious jokers, do you think nigerians are stupid,blind, or dumb? This is the most pathetic thing a fool can write about a man of such integrity. This has the signature of pro GEJ all over it, we can not be fooled by your little tricks dummy so try harder.

    No amount of trashy talks any one can say that will make us change our minds, all of you promoting GEJ is because you are so self centred because you are exploiting his resources. The question is what are his achievement in the last six years he has been in power? Why don’t you make a factual list of it and these time please try not to fabricate it. What is the biggest challenges Nigeria as a nation is facing? How did GEJ handled such challenges? Has he even succeeded in resolving any ? His biggest achievement in his administration that he uses for his campaign is the issue of Ibola, what a shame. When did he decide to visit maiduguri, yobe, adamawa, and other N.E part of the country? Did he visit them when they needed him as their president and father of the nation to come to their rescue or now when he needs them because election is around the corner? How about the false promises he made for power,agriculture, water, school, etc. Do we have sufficient power? How about agriculture, Nigeria has the largest tomato belt in Africa, but yet we import tomato paste, producers of sugar cane and cassava in Africa but yet, we do not produce ethanol and we import sugar, why do we mostly import when other countries are exporting? What has he done about our refineries? was it not in his administration our universities went on strike for seven months and he is supposed to be an academician? What about the international embarrassment caused by him and his wife? For a Nigeria president missing out in an international presidential conference where presidents deliberate over international issues each protecting the interest of his country, ours is sleeping in his hotel room. A whole first lady can’t even address her people properly on national TV, you all remember d slogan of ‘there is God ooo’ what an embarrassment. We as true blooded Nigerians we say no to GEJ, come febuary we need change and change it shall be. Insha Allah.

    Well, it is an offence committed, to now say the penalty meted was no justifiable.
    Why do they commit this offence in the first place. Law is no respecta of anybody.
    That`s why one should abstain himself from any shady deals.
    I see nothing wrong in this if this is practicable in Saudi Arabia.

    Nigerians are not fools. Drug traffickers are being executed in some countries, because that is against their law. Because PdP government is lawless ,clueless and have run out of ideas that is why they are chasing shadows. Nkem Owoh you can weep any time u see Buhari on TV. It is a constant reminder that you should not break the law of the land. Sham less PdP

    A.A MAISHANU please you can’t say GEJ didn’t care for the northerners when their governor are allocated a bigger share of our nation’s budget than the eastern governors plus the extra share allocated to them for security which the eastern governors don’t get such
