No State In Nigeria Is COVID-19 Free- NCDC Chikwe Ihekweazu

Chikwe Ihekweazu, Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), has said that no state in the country is COVID-19 free.

Ihekweazu said this today June 22 while speaking at the daily briefing of the presidential task force in Abuja. He said a state can only talk about being COVID-19 free when it is testing and have the effective tool to fight the disease.

In his words;

“No state in Nigeria is COVID-19 free. No country in the world is COVID-19 free. That is why we have to keep doing this work we are doing, testing people, finding out if they have it. Even if some of us are lucky and get away with having asymptomatic infections, we have to test more.

We can only talk about a state being disease-free when we have an effective tool to fight the disease. That will come when we have a vaccine. Until then, there is no easy way to say this. We have to keep pushing for these preventive measures. We have to develop our laboratory capability to test. Either you start testing now or you start testing later. But eventually, we will all test. That’s for sure.”

In Nigeria, Cross Rivers is the only state where no case of COVID-19 has been officially confirmed.

One of the victims, who gave his name simply as Eghosa, said that he was sleeping with his wife in the bedroom when he unexpectedly saw torch lights pointed at them.

They walked into our house, gathered the money available, wounded my mother and my newborn baby with machetes, and smashed my wife’s iPhone on the wall when it became clear they couldn’t make use of the phone.

“When they left my place, they robbed about 13 other houses until the guards and the police called. Once the police arrived, they began to exchange bullets with the robbers. Two of them were killed and one of them was captured. This one was the one who took the iPhone of my wife.

Billionaire, Ned Nwoko Reacts After Journalist Accused Him Of Belonging To A Cult Group

Billionaire businessman and philanthropist, Prince Ned Nwoko has paid N2billion damages for the defamation of a character claim against journalist and online publisher Azuka Jebose Molokwu.

It comes after the reporter accused the businessman of belonging to a cult group.

This is set out in the notice of summons received from the High Court of Effurun, Delta State on behalf of Nwoko by its lawyer, Ikhide Ehighelua and Co, dated 13 July 2020.

Also joined in the suit No. EHC 99 as the second defendant is Prince Chukwunonso Nwoko, who was listed as employer and supporter of the first defendant, Jebose, a native of Onicha-Ugbo, Aniocha North Local Government Area, Delta State, resident in the United States of America.

According to the suit, both defendants made extremely diffamatory publications in a variety of online blogs and other social media outlets “calculated to the the claimant’s calculation” and to damage the public’s credibility.

This alleged that the malicious publications had proceeded unabated against the complainant, despite the warnings from his lawyers to the defendants.

Nwoko ‘s Counsel also argued that the first defendant had publicly declared on the social media that the notices would not dissuade his defamatory publications, triggering legal action.

The plaintiff also demanded in his favor, before the court, “public apology for publication by the defendants in at least two national daily newspapers circulated in Nigeria and on social media sites,” as well as an order of perpetual injunction prohibiting the defendants from making any more diffamatory publications against him.

The identity of a man who had the carnal knowledge of his underage daughter and impregnated her was exposed.

Former DSS officer Eromosele Mahmud, 47, confessed to the police after he was arrested in Rivers State for allegedly impregnating his 16-year-old daughter after five years of rape.

The defendant, a single parent and the father of three of them from the Esako West Local Government Area of Edo State, but resident in Port Harcourt, admitted to having been raped since she was 12 years old.

Eromosele, who said that he did not know what forced him into the crime, begged that his daughter’s two-month pregnancy should be nurtured before delivery, adding that he had not subscribed to abortion.

He admitted that his daughter had come to enjoy the incestuous affair, and even forced herself on him.

He said, “This is a war I’ve been trying to fight over the years, and it seems to be a lot bigger than me. I do not withhold any evidence or reality as far as this case is concerned. When this is the only way my daughter will be released if I go to jail, then it’s a positive thing. My joy is that even now, when I talk to you, I am relieved.

“I don’t rape her regularly; it happens once or twice in a year; she used to be very cooperative, even when I don’t want it, she tries to force herself on me.”
On her part, the victim said each time she protested against her father’s act, he would maltreat her and stop paying her school fees and also punish her.
She stated, “It was my father who impregnated me; he started having sex with me when I was 12-year-old till now.
“The first time he came and lay with me on the bed, when I tried to scream, he told me to shut up that my mates were doing the same thing and anytime I refused to allow him, he would not buy anything for me and he would refuse to pay my school fees.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, said the suspect would be charged once investigation was concluded.
