The raid on the residence of Sunday Adeyemo, a youth leader, better known as Sunday Igboho by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) dominated the cover pages of Nigerian newspapers.

Daily Independent says the federal government vowed not to spare the collaborators of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). The newspaper reports that the national assembly passed the much-awaited Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB).

The Punch reports that the DSS confirmed that its operatives killed two and arrested 13 aides during a raid on Igboho’s house.

The Guardian says the decision of the senate to slash the benefits accruing to host communities to 3 percent in the PIB has sparked outrage. The newspaper reports that the house of representatives asked the federal government to continue to dialogue with Twitter but resolved that the suspension should remain.

The Nation says the senate and house of representatives could not agree on the fund for host communities in the passage of PIB. The newspaper says troops of the Nigerian Army arrested one Ibrahim Musa, a suspected member of the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP), in Sango Otta area of Ogun state.

Daily Trust reports that the federal government wrote to Western diplomats to list the atrocities committed by the IPOB leader. The federal government targets N900 billion for petrol subsidy in 2022, the newspaper reports.

Daily Sun reports that governors elected on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform asked the federal government to go after bandits and killer herdsmen as it did for Kanu. The newspaper says the federal government revealed its two-year effort leading to Kanu’s arrest.
