Revealed! Italian Man With Coronavirus Went To Ogun State Before He Was Brought To Lagos

Obafemi Hamzat

Obafemi Hamzat, the Deputy governor of Lagos state, was on TVC this morning where he revealed that the Italian man diagnosed with the first case of Coronavirus in Nigeria, went to Ewekoro in Ogun state before he fell ill and was brought to Lagos where he was diagnosed with the virus.

"This young man came in from Italy, Milan. He came in on the 25th. He has a consultancy job with a company in Ogun state. He landed on the 26th, went to Ewkoro and then he fell ill and the doctors were smart enough to say this is somebody that is coming from Italy that has just suddenly fell ill. So they took him in. So we sent an ambulance there with a pep jacket. So they brought him in and then he was diagonised.

"The good thing is that he was brought in yesterday morning. Within four hours, he was diagnosed. Our diagonistic tool seemed to work better than we expected. Normally it takes about 8 hours but within four hours, we were able to determine. So he is our biosecurity lab in Yaba. It is a lab that we built that can accomodate 100 for now but it is only one bed that is occupied today. Hopefully it wouldn't spread. So we are ready. We are well equipped.

"He is there and he is getting better. The challenge is not for people to have the virus. If you don't know, that is the challenge. In this case, it is known that he has it. He is going to be okay. He is steady. The doctors say he is going to be fine.

"What we are doing now is that he came in through one airline, so we are tring to track everybody on that flight. He went from Lagos to Ewekoro. Who has he met? What has happened? Those are the people that we are tracking, isolate them and then check.'' he said

Actress Etinosa Begs Apostle Suleman For Forgiveness After Accusing Him Of Having A Side Chick


Actress Etinosa Idemudia has asked for forgiveness from Apostle Suleman of Omega Fire Ministries after accusing him in a post yesterday of having a side chick.

Recall that Apostle Suleman had delivered a sermon to his congregation warning them against skin bleaching by describing those in the practice as fraudsters.

The clergyman said; “Can I give you an advice? Don’t bleach. Bleaching is not original and anything that isn’t original has no end. Once you move from your original colour you have no end”

Well, Etinosa didn't like his message and fired back at the clergyman alleging that his side chick is also into skin bleaching.

The has now come out to plead with the man of God saying that her words were taken out of context and not directed at Apostle Suleman.

She shared as seen in the screenshot below:

Leah Sharibu's Mother Storms London, Set To Meet British Prime Minister

Mrs. Rebecca and Leah Sharibu

According to a report by The Nation, the Mother of Leah Sharibu, the only Dapchi school-girl remaining in Boko Haram captivity, Mrs. Rebecca Sharibu has stormed London to meet the British Prime Minister on her daughter’s case.

Mrs Rebecca Sharibu who spoke in an interview with the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in London, said that, President Muhammadu Buhari was not serious about securing the release of her daughter.

She however said, she was in London to seek the assistance of the the British Government to free Leah from the terrorists’ captivity.

According to Mrs. Sharibu in the interview monitored by our Correspondent in Kaduna on Thursday, President Buhari did not contact their family until seven months after the abduction of their daughter.

She also lamented that, after the President contacted her, and sent down three Ministers, assuring her that Leah was going to be released soon, nothing else else had been said to her by the President.

She however said it was against that background that, she decided to visit London to lay her complaints and seek the British government’s help.

According to her, “I have come to Britain to lay my complaints, I need their help. They should help me, I will like my daughter to be freed from captivity.
“My daughter was abducted among others by Boko Haram terrorists, it was seven months later that President Muhammadu Buhari called me. Since their abduction in February, it was seven months later that he called me.

“When he called me, he told me that my daughter would return, that she would not stay long.

“Two weeks later, he sent three ministers to our house and they corroborated what Mr. President had told me. The ministers reiterated that Leah would be returned to me, shortly.

The Ministers said they were in my house to reassure me that my daughter would soon return. But since that day, I never heard anything again from the government.

“My major worry now, is for the government to do whatever possible and free my daughter from captivity. Because, I am seriously disturbed, but there is nothing I can do. If the government is doing nothing, what can I an ordinary citizen do?” She said.

Mrs. Sharibu however commended a non-governmental organization, Leah Foundation established in honour of her daughter, saying that, the Foundation had been of great assistance to the Leah family.

She also disclosed that, the Foundation assisted the family in towards making her trip to London a reality.

According to her, “Leah Foundation is helping us by sponsoring some girls, even my trip to London, they assisted. Recently, we were assisted by them.” She said.

Leah Sharibu was among 110 school-girls, abducted from their school premises in Dapchi village of Yobe State in February 2018. While others have since been released, Miss Sharibu is being held back in captivity by Boko Haram terrorists, allegedly for her refusal to denounce her Christianity faith.

Man Who Jumped Into Lagos Lagoon Was Dumped By His Girlfriend...See Details

Princewill David

It has been revealed that a Nigerian man who alighted from an Uber car and jumped into the Lagos lagoon was dumped by his girlfriend. The heartbreak, it was revealed pushed him to take his own life.

Recall that he however survived the suicide attempt. This is coming barely 10 days after Daibo Toju Davies plunged himself into the lagoon.

The young man has now been identified as 28-year-old Princewill David.

The incident occurred around midnight on Thursday. It was gathered that David, a resident of 42, Tajudeen Balogun Street, Igando, took the dive after his lover broke up with him.

The Foreign Exchange (FOREX) dealer was said to have requested a hailing taxi service only to tell the driver to stop midway through the bridge for him to urinate.

The Nation gathered that the driver turned down his request following recent trend of passengers on suicide mission, asking drivers to stop for them to pee only to jump into the water.

It was learnt that the driver increased his speed until he sighted operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) on pin down operation towards Adeniji before he slowed down.

As soon as the driver slowed down, David was said to have jumped off the car and into the lagoon where he landed on logs of wood.

It was gathered that the policemen quickly went after him, rescued and rushed him to the hospital.

David was said to have fractured his legs and sustained other body injuries as a result of the jump.

According to a source, the driver said David insisted he should pass Third Mainland Bridge after he picked him up at Igando.

“He asked the driver if they were on Third Mainland Bridge when they got there and he said yes.

“The man then said the driver should stop the car so he can pee but the driver refused and sped off.

“The driver said the man was forcing him to wait but because of reports of people jumping into the water after lying that they want to pee, he increased his speed and only slowed down when he saw RRS.

“But before the driver reached where the policemen where to complain, the man ran off the vehicle and jumped into the water.

“One of the policemen saw him approach the railings and pleaded with him not to jump but the guy went ahead. Fortunately, he landed on logs of wood and the policemen with the help of local fishermen rescued him.

“He broke his legs and sustained other injuries. He was rushed to the hospital where he is still being treated.

“They asked why he wanted to kill himself and he said it was because his girlfriend said she was no longer interested in him,” the source said.

Confirming the incident, police spokesman Bala Elkana said the victim was responding to treatment at the hospital, adding that he said heartbreak led him to attempt suicide.

Vice President Of Iran Tests Positive For The Deadly Coronavirus

Iran's VP, Masoumeh Ebtekar

Iran’s vice-president has been diagnosed with coronavirus, state media have reported, as the country struggles to stop the spread of the disease, IndependentUK has reported.

Masoumeh Ebtekar is among 254 people infected with the virus in the Middle Eastern nation, where 26 people have been killed.

The vice-president for women and family affairs is better known internationally as the English-language spokeswoman for the hostage-takers who seized the US embassy in Tehran in 1979, sparking a 444-day diplomatic crisis.

Recall that Iran’s deputy health minister also tested positive for the virus earlier this week, hours after appearing visibly unwell at a press conference during which he denied the government was suppressing the scale of the outbreak.

Coronavirus cases in Iran spiked by 106 over the last 24 hours, the country’s health ministry announced on Thursday. The country’s death toll from the outbreak is higher than any country except China, where the epidemic began.

The outbreak has prompted Iranian authorities to cancel Friday prayers in Tehran. Health ministry spokesman Kianush Jahanpur said there were also plans to impose restrictions at some holy Muslim sites but the plan “needs the approval of the president before being carried out”.

Mr Jahanpur, speaking to state TV, urged Iranians to avoid “unnecessary trips inside the country”.

State news agency IRNA said Chinese citizens have been banned from entering the country. Similar restrictions have been implemented by dozens of other nations including the US, Russia, South Korea and Australia in a bid to stem the spread of coronavirus.

Michael Ryan, executive director of the World Health Organisation’s emergencies programme, said Iran’s 10 per cent mortality rate – five times higher than China – was probably due to milder cases of the disease not being picked up.

He made the appeal while reacting after the Nigerian government confirmed a case of the disease in Lagos State.

In January 2020, the World Health Organisation, WHO, had declared Coronavirus a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.

Supreme Court Fines APC And David Lyon's Lawyers N60m


Chief Afe Babalola (SAN) and Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) representing David Lyon and All Progressives Congress respectively have been fined N30 million each for agreeing to file an application for the review of the apex court’s judgment on Bayelsa election.

The court also ordered that the two lawyers must pay N10m each to the three respondents namely: the Peoples Democratic Party, Governor Duoye Diri, and the Deputy Governor of Bayelsa State, Lawrence Ewhruojakpo, bringing the total amount to be paid to N60 million.

According to Punch, Justice Amina Augie announced the fine while reading the judgment in the applications for a review of its February 13, 2020 judgment which overturned the All Progressives Congress’ victory in the last governorship election in Bayelsa State.

With tears in her eyes, the justice regretted that “very senior” lawyers were responsible for filing the applications.

Subsequently, the apex court awarded the costs of N10m to be personally paid by David Lyon’s lawyer, Chief Afe Babalola (SAN), and APC’s lawyer, Olanipekun (SAN).

It ruled that each of the lawyers must pay the N10m to each of the three respondents – the Peoples Democratic Party, Governor Duoye Diri, and the Deputy Governor of Bayelsa State, Lawrence Ewhruojakpo, bringing the total amount to be paid to N60 million.

She said the applications amounted to an invitation for the apex court to sit in appeal on its own judgment in violation of the Constitution.

A seven-man panel of the apex court led by Justice Sylvester Ngwuta described the applications filed by the APC and its governorship candidate at the poll, Lyon, as vexatious, frivolous, and constituted a gross abuse of court process.

Justice Augie held that it would amount to violating the finality of its judgment if the applications were granted.

She said granting the applications would open a floodgate for the review of decisions of the Supreme Court.

“There must be an end to litigation,” she said, adding, “the decision of the Supreme Court is final for ages in a matter” and only legislation could change it."

Seun Kuti Attacks Lady Who Narrated How Her Twin Brothers Ended Up In Jail After Visiting Fela's Shrine

Seun Kuti

Seun Kuti, son of late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, has lashed out at a lady for telling a group of boys not to end up like her twin brothers who got arrested and spent six years in jail after going to dance at Fela's shrine.

In a video posted on his page, the lady while advising the young boys against becoming Marlians, said;

There was a Fela in our days. When we were growing up, there was a Fela. I had my own elder brothers, that were shrine gang. They would go to the shrine every Friday. Let me tell you the good news. Two of them stayed in Kirikiri for six years.

In that process, my father became very poor. My mother, if you see my mother and they told you her age, you would not believe. She sold her wrapper, sold her clothes, sold everything she had. My father sold two cars to be able to get these guys out of Kirikiri. It didn't work. Unfortunately, they were twins. That is what Marlian life does to you. They went to Fela's shrine, they went to dance. There was a fight. Poliuce came and packed all of them.''

Angered by the lady's statement that her brothers were arrested because they were in Fela's shrine, Seun wrote

See all these Lies by these idiots. Fela Name don full everyone mouth. These idiots that know of nothing sacred. Now this one is talking about her brothers that went to shrine and police locked them for 6 years for fighting? Does that make sense. I grew up in the shrine, where is my Kiri Kiri record. Let me advise Nigerian Parents, it’s ur duty to raise your kids and this woman is just as dangerous to their psyche as the ‘Marlian’ syndrome u are afraid of!
It is because we allow people like this interact with our children we have an educational system that tends to reduce justice as it produces lawyers, reduce health as it produces doctors and created ignorance as it produces teachers hence the more lawyers the less justice. The more doctors the less health and the more teachers the more ignorance. Everyone just dey disrespect Fela as dem like, now this goats and her goat twins have gone to prison for ‘6 years for fighting’. Better tell the world that ur brothers were robbers. Ode!! #getthesax

Oshiomhole Must Inform Me Before Visiting Edo State – Obaseki

Adams Oshiomhole, Godwin Obaseki

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said that his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, must inform him before coming to the state, as a matter of courtesy.

Obaseki said this on Sunday when former president, Goodluck Jonathan, visited him at the government house.

Addressing journalists, Obaseki said it was sad that a former governor of the state and allegedly suspended National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Oshiomhole, disregarded protocol anytime he visited the state.

Obaseki said, “It is really sad that someone who has been governor of the state is visiting the state and does not realise that courtesy demands he should inform the incumbent governor or other government apparatus of his visit. He doesn’t inform the chief executive who is in charge of his security when he is in the state.

“As someone who has served the country, courtesy demands that you inform the governor of the state that you are coming and if you have time during the visit, you can pay him a courtesy call. It is really sad and unfortunate that people who have served the state and who should know better behave the way they do, with impunity and lawlessness.”

Meanwhile, Police in Edo State on Saturday foiled an attempt by protesting youths to attack Oshiomhole, in Benin.

The former governor of the state was about to enter his waiting car after his arrival at the Benin Airport when protesting youths forced their way into the airport, heading for the VIP area chanting war songs and booing him.

The police officers at the airport were forced to fire shots into the air after the protesters resisted their efforts to stop them.

The government refuted claims that it sponsored the attack on the APC national chairman.

The protesters, who took to the streets, also stormed the palace of Akarigbo and the Paramount Ruler of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, demanding justice for the deceased, reports Punch.

However, the protest has allegedly claimed one life as it turned violent.

The protesters condemned the incessant brutality and indiscriminate arrests by law enforcement agents in the town and its environs.

The atmosphere in Sagamu was tense as the protesters move from one point to the other chanting anti-police slogans.

The protesters were also joined by a former governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, who was sighted at the palace in solidarity with the protesters and to calm frayed nerves.

A member of the House of Representatives representing Remo Federal Constituency, Mrs Adewunmi Onanuga, and the state Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Mrs Funmi Efuwape, were also at the palace to appeal to the people.

Armed policemen have been deployed in the town to forestall a breakdown of law and order.

Kazeem, popularly known as Kaka, was reportedly killed on Saturday along the Abeokuta-Sagamu Expressway after he was arrested by operatives of the Zonal Intervention Squad in Obada area of the state.

She further said that most of those who look perfect on social media do not look anywhere close to that in real life and that she was tired of the “audio beauty and scam.”
