The federal high court sitting in abuja has adjourned the suit brought by 12 detained associates of yoruba nation agitator, sunday adeyemo also known as sunday igboho.

In her ruling, justice obiora egwuatu adjourned the suit till august 2 due to failure on part of the department of state services, dss to produce the detained aides as earlier ordered by the court.

Justice egwuatu also ordered that the dss should grant the lawyer to the detained aides access to his clients.

Reacting, counsel to the dss,  i. Awo informed the court that the dss has no intention of disobeying the court’s order but stated that there were facts that were necessary for the court to be aware of regarding the matter.

Cbn/bureau de change

Us/vietnam

United states defense secretary, lloyd austin has visited vietnam to bolster security ties with hanoi, one of several southeast asian nations embroiled in a dispute over the south china sea.

The official added that the defence chief is also expected to sign a memorandum of understanding for harvard and texas tech university to create a database that would help the vietnamese search for those missing from the war.

Australia/lockdown

Australia has extended covid 19 lockdown in sydney until the end of august but other main cities, including melbourne, are now easing restrictions.

New south wales premier, gladys berejiklian announced the extension after the country’s struggled to control an outbreak of the highly contagious covid 19 delta variant that began with an unmasked and unvaccinated driver of an international aircrew in sydney.

Berejiklian said there would be curbs on interstate travel to stamp out the spread of the virus, adding that certain states have not paid enough attention to airborne transmission, putting more pressure on the government whose vaccination programme is one of the slowest among developed nations.

The state premier further said australia’s limited vaccination supply has also been subject to interstate squabbles, with each state proffering a case as to why they should be prioritised in the vaccination programme.

Australia/covid 19

Meanwhile,

Authorities in australia have requested the military to help enforce a lockdown of 6 million people for 4 weeks across sydney.

New south wales premier, gladys berejiklian told reporters that despite measures put in place to contain the virus in sydney, the state capital recorded 239 locally acquired cases of covid 19 in the past 24 hours.

She therefore said with tighter restrictions set to begin tomorrow, friday, july 30, 300 military personnel have been asked to help enforce lockdown orders in the state, adding that more than 2 million residents in 8 sydney hotspots will now be forced to wear masks outdoors.

                                                         s.o.t

Report says the restrictions are likely to take a heavy economic toll with new south wales accounting for more than a third of australia’s economy.

Haiti/elections

Haiti’s newly sworn-in interim prime minister, ariel henry has revealed plans to allow the caribbean nation hold elections after the assassination of president jovenel moise plunged the country into deeper political uncertainty.

Henry, who was confirmed as prime minister in a ceremony in port-au-prince last week, told newsmen that the mission of his government is to prepare the conditions to hold the elections as quickly as possible but did not say when exactly the elections which president moise had promised to hold later this year would be held.

Meanwhile, the united states and the united nations have urged haitian leaders to move ahead with elections as a way to get out of the ongoing crisis, but civil society leaders have questioned whether the current conditions in haiti are conducive to a free and fair vote.

 

Sports

Nigerian track and field athlete, blessing okagbare has blamed officials of the athletics federation of nigeria, afn, following the ban of ten of the country’s track and field athletes from taking part at the ongoing tokyo 2020 olympics in japan.

The athletics integrity unit, aiu, which runs the anti-doping program for the sport had said the athletes failed to meet the minimum testing requirements under rule 15 of the anti-doping rules for category a’ federations, promting their ban.

Reacting in a tweet, okagbare insisted that the afn were busy fighting for power to the extent that they forgot their major responsibility, adding that athletes are always at the receiving end of the damages because the sport system in nigeria is flawed.
