An unnamed woman in Sapele, Delta State, has reportedly lost her life after a two-month dry fasting.

Eye witnesses said that the incident happened along MTN Road, Okirigwhere in Sapele.

It was gathered that the woman, her husband, son, and a friend locked themselves inside the house for two months to complete the 60-day fasting.

Reports gathered that a family friend allegedly initiated the fasting which they later joined.

It was revealed that they took only water when necessary during the spiritual exercise.

Sources told out Reportes that while the mother lost her life due to the exercise, her son became emaciated.

Meanwhile, the survivors of the fasting were said to have been taken to the hospital for proper medical attention, while the body of the deceased had been evacuated.

The state Police Public Relation Officer, Onome Onovwakpoyeya, could neither confirm nor deny the incident. She said no such report had been received by the police as the time of enquiry.

Onovwakpoyeya, however, assured that investigations would be intensified in that direction.

Groups call for end to nationwide #endSARs protest.

A group, Citizens Action for Good Governance (CAGG) has called for a halt of the #EndSARS protests, decrying the alarming increase in violent assaults carried out against both citizens and police officers.

Addressing journalists in Abuja on Monday, October 19, the national coordinator of CAGG, Nazir Galadanchi said the protesters should reason with the government and listen to calls and appeals by many well-meaning citizens. Galadanchi further said the heightened insecurity has tarnished the image of the country amongst the comity of nations.

His words:

“The peace of Nigeria should have been the overriding imperative of all. No person or group, no matter how aggrieved, should be allowed to undermine or threaten national security, unity, tranquillity, peace and harmony. “We would like to appeal to our fellow Nigerians, especially young people to halt the protests for their safety because their demands are already being attended to by the government, and we are optimistic that there will be a better life for all.’’

He also appealed to leaders and persons of influence, including celebrities and religious leaders, to persuade their followers and fans to discontinue the protests.
