Afenifere, in a communiqué issued at the end of its monthly meeting held at the country home of its acting leader, pa ayo adebanjo said the state of the nation calls for concern as the country is fast moving into the precipice, hence the need for citizens not to depend on the government for protection but pray against the challenge faced by bandits as well protect themselves.

While expressing worry over the worsening security situation in the country, the group noted that it is threatening the corporate existence of nigeria, calling on the government and security agencies to put a halt to the unbridled influx of people with questionable intentions. 

TIGRAY/US

Forces from ethiopia’s tigray region have looted the united states government humanitarian agency’s warehouses in the neighbouring amhara state.

The humanitarian agency’s boss in ethiopia, samantha power who made the allegation while speaking with newsmen said tigrayan fighters had emptied warehouses, taking food, trucks and other items, adding that they had caused a great deal of destruction in  villages.

Meanwhile, officials in amhara had accused the tigrayan forces of killing about 40 civilians and destroying schools, hospitals and other facilities.

However, the tigray rebel forces, who had been fighting federal troops and their allies for 10 months, had not responded to the allegations.

UK/AFGHANISTAN

The united kingdom has been negotiating with the taliban forces to secure safe passage out of afghanistan for a number of british nationals and afghans who remain there.

Former british ambassador to afghanistan between 2010 and 2012, sir william patey made this known while speaking with newsmen, saying engaging with the taliban could help prevent a refugee crisis and avoid the country becoming a host for terrorists.

It would be recalled that the taliban had declared victory in afghanistan following the withdrawal of us troops, with fighters streaming into kabul airport on august 31, after british troops left the country.

Report says despite the militants promise to allow those with authorisation to leave the country, the uk’s ambassador to the united nations, dame woodward, had said the fighters would be judged on the basis of their actions, not their words.

JAPAN /VACCINE

Japan has put a batch of moderna’s covid-19 vaccine on hold after a foreign substance was found in a vial.

Authorities recalled that a pharmacist saw several black particles in one vial of the vaccine in kanagawa prefecture.

Reacting, japan’s health minister, suga yoshihide stated that the foreign matter found in jabs in the southern prefecture of okinawa were due to needles being incorrectly inserted into vials.

However, it was reported that there is no evidence so far of any health hazards caused by the potentially contaminated vaccine.

NEW ORLEANS/ HURRICANE

New orleans mayor, latoya cantrell made this known, saying the curfew would last from 8:00pm to 6:00am while police lamented that there had been several incidents of looting in the city.

It would be noted that two people were killed and at least 10 injured after a section of highway collapsed near lucedale, mississippi as energy companies had been working tirelessly to restore power.

Meanwhile, lieutenant governor of louisiana, bill nungesser had warned that the death toll from ida might likely rise in the coming days.

SRI LANKA/ ORGANIC FOOD

Sri lanka’s drive to become the world’s first 100 percent organic food producer has threatened its prized tea industry and triggered fears of a wider crop disaster that could deal a further blow to the economy.

Sri lanka’s president, gotabaya rajapaksa had banned chemical fertilisers this year to set off his organic race but tea plantation owners are predicting crops could fail as soon as october.

Reacting, master tea maker, herman gunaratne, who is one of the 46 experts picked by rajapaksa to guide the organic revolution, express fear that sri lanka’s average annual crop of 300 million kg would be slashed by half unless the government changes course.

It would be recalled that rajapaksa who came to power in 2019 had promised subsidised foreign fertiliser but did a u-turn, arguing that agricultural chemicals were poisoning people.

JIGAWA/CIVIL SERVANTS

Jigawa state civil service commission says it has promoted 10,540 staff from 2016 to 2020.
