In paragraph 50 of Mr President’s speech, he directed that our ministry works with the relevant state governments in developing a strategy on how to sustain the school feeding programme.

We will be doing this and I have already started contacting the governors on agreeing on the modalities to adopt.

I have accordingly contacted the programme heads of the programme. This particular task may have to go beyond the affected states because as we are aware, all schools are closed down and children are at home.

So, we are looking at modalities to see how we will extend this directive beyond the states where the lockdown has affected

The landlord who is identified as Ubasinachi Ekweozor and his wife Anulika Ubasinachi Ekweozor are in custody in Ikotun Police Station following the attack on their tenant Oyize Peter over unpaid water and electricity bills at their house located at No, 78, Amudalatu Agodo, Ikotun, Lagos.

It was gathered that Oyize was owing electricity bills and the electricity distribution company disconnected her house.

The landlord was angered by this because the tenant’s house was also connected to the pumping machine that serves the entire compound.

The landlord then called an electrician to connect the machine’s wire to his own apartment. He also got a plumber to disconnect Oyize’s pipe so she wouldn’t have access to water.

However, Oyize refused to be sidelined in this way so she objected and it led to a verbal altercation.

Oyize was doing chores later, after calm was restored on Sunday, March 29, when the landlady allegedly took her unawares and used an axe to slash her on her face, leaving her with multiple lacerations.

See graphic photos of the victim's injuries and also the landlord and his wife;

15-year-old Girl Allegedly Killed By Customs Officers

15-year-old Girl Allegedly Killed By Customs Officers

Agbelade reportedly died at a private hospital in the community on Saturday March 28.

The deceased was running an errand before being hit by the stray bullet from the men of Customs Service.

Abdulahi Maiwada, the Ogun state Police spokesperson, confirmed the incident but said he doesn't have the facts.

He said;

I can confirm the incident but I don’t have the facts. By the time I have the facts, I would make them available.

According to an eyewitness, the Customs officers were chasing a purple Toyota Camry which was allegedly driven by a suspected rice smuggler.

After arresting the suspect, they reportedly started shooting indiscriminately.

The eyewitness said;

Everything happened about 1p.m. on Saturday and aside Sekinat who died, two other people, 55-year-old Oluwole Oladosu and Saliu Babalola, were also injured by stray bullets.

The incident happened in Agosasa area. The Customs were chasing a smuggler and the exact place is called Ita-Sango. They were able to intercept the smuggler with his smuggled goods and a series of things happened and they started shooting indiscriminately. The surprising thing is that they started shooting sporadically at the people even after intercepting the smuggler.

It was in the process that this lady, who was sent on an errand, was hit by a bullet. Even with the bullet on her, she was making effort to run but she became weak.

There is one 55-year-old Oluwole who saw the lady wriggling in pain because of the bullet wound and made an effort to rescue her.  But these Customs officers, who had already moved the smuggled car, turned back and shot him for daring to save the young girl.

The lady was taken to Olutunu Hospital at Agosasa where Dr. Fatokun made frantic efforts to salvage her life but she had lost a lot of blood because of the bullet wound and she died along the line.
