About 1,455 Lagosians who tested positive for the coronavirus pandemic have refused to turn up for admission at the various isolation centres, the Lagos state government has revealed.

This was disclosed by the state’s commissioner for health, Prof. Akin Abayomi. He said the affected Lagosians were still active and could spread the virus within the community. Going further, he said 72 coronavirus patients were currently at public and private isolation centres across the state. Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that when a person’s story is about to change for good, even the most everyday thing would seem so special. The same can be said of the boy, Oreofeoluwa Lawal-Babalola, who told his mom to calm down in the fear that he was about to be caned by her.

Many Lagosians who tested positive for coronavirus are nowhere to be found In the said video, he appealed to her with tears in his eyes as his mom said he would be punished this time around for the wrong he has been repeatedly been told not to do. In a hilarious show of remorse, the kid asked his mom to give him “a last chance” as he demonstrated to her how she can practice calm down by sitting. As soon as the video hit the internet, it stirred conversations as people had different things to say about parenting. Days after, Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, analysed the video, drawing relatable lessons from it as he said he would like to meet the boy. The governor has finally fulfilled that promise as he met the kid.

Also recall that Legit.ng reported that as Lagosians locked down over the menace of the deadly coronavirus pandemic, pharmacies close to the Igando general hospital in Alimosho area of the state locked their stores in compliance with the directive of the state and the federal government.

UK parliament debate petitions on the violence surrounding the #endSars protest in Nigeria

Published

Members of the UK parliament on Monday, November 23, held a debate on the petition to the United Kingdom government seeking a sanction on some Nigerian government officials by the EndSARS protesters over gross human right abuse.


During a sitting at the Westminster Hall, the lawmakers took turns to slam the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government for the poor handling of the protest. The debate for the petition tagged ‘e-petition 554150′ was led by Theresa Villiers, a member of the British Conservative Party. Parliamentarians who spoke raised eyebrows against the defence of the federal government that there was no shooting at the Lekki toll gate.

While describing the “Nigerian government’s violence against its own citizens” as intensifying, Kate Osamor, a member who is representing Edmonton, said the corruption and police brutality still continue. Osamor also described as “undemocratic conduct” the claim by the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, that the killing and shooting at Lekki, as contained in a CNN report, is fake news.


The member said:

“The Nigerian government needs to stop freezing bank accounts of key protesters; it needs to stop illegal detentions of key protesters. “We are aware that some protesters have reported facing intimidation and the British High Commissioner in Abuja continues to raise our concerns about intimidation of civil society groups and peaceful protesters with the Nigerian government.” The UK parliament said it would continue to communicate with the governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and a top member of the Nigerian presidency.

The parliament concluded that “future sanctions could reduce the impact of the designations.”
