China records first COVID-19 death in eight months



China dead

China recorded its first COVID-19 death in eight months on Thursday, as experts huddled to discuss worrying new strains of the coronavirus that are spreading rapidly around the globe.

The gathering in Geneva of the World Health Organization’s emergency committee comes as their colleagues landed in Wuhan for a long-delayed mission to find the origins of the virus.


More than 91 million people have been infected, with almost two million of them dying, according to figures widely thought to be an underestimate.

Much of the planet is enveloped in a second or third wave of the disease, with populations chafing under painful and economically damaging restrictions.

China — where the virus first emerged — has again locked down millions of people as it fights to control a fresh outbreak that has now claimed its first victim, sparking anguish on social media.

Beijing has argued Wuhan might not be where the virus originated, only where it was first identified.

“I don’t think we will have clear answers after this initial mission, but we will be on the way,” Embarek added.

Regardless of the virus’s origins, scientists say large-scale vaccination is the only way to escape its ravages.

Programmes have spluttered into life in a number of countries, although progress is slower than many are hoping.

In the United States, where more than 4,000 people are dying every day from the disease, around 10 million have received the first shot.

California’s Disneyland threw open its doors Wednesday as a vaccination site, with 81-year-old Gary Dohman near the front of the queue.

“Easy — a piece of cake, nothing to it. Didn’t even feel it go in,” he said after getting his injection.

“I’ve been cooped up in a house for 10 months, can’t go anywhere. I want to get my second shot and do a little traveling.”

The Police has arraigned two officials of the Oyo State Government before a Chief Magistrates’ Court, Ibadan, for allegedly stealing and selling 40 bags of sugar from the state’s COVID-19 palliatives
A trader who allegedly sold the stolen palliatives to one Kafayat Babalola was also arraigned alongside the government officials.
The officials and the trader were charged with conspiracy, stealing, and receiving of stolen goods.
The defendants are a 50-year-old driver, Adebiyi Azeez, and Sunday Akinleye, a 43-year-old Assistant Protocol Officer in charge of palliatives at the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.
The prosecutor, Sunday Ogunremi, told the court that the offence was committed on December 30.
He said, “Adebiyi and Akinleye stole 40 bags of Dangote Sugar, valued at N60,000, being COVID-19 palliatives and property of the Oyo State Government.
“The duo used the official vehicle of the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs to convey the goods to the buyer.

“The third defendant, Mrs Kafayat Babalola, a trader at Agbeni market, Ibadan, received the 40 bags of sugar, knowing that they were not for sale, being the property of the state government.”
He said the offence contravened sections 516, 390 (9) and 427 of the Criminal Code of Oyo State, 2000.

The defendants pleaded not guilty and the Chief Magistrate, Mr Taiwo Oladiran, granted them bail in the sum of N20,000 each, with two sureties each in like sum, and adjourned the case to February 8 for hearing.

SERAP drags FG to UN over Sowore, others’ detention



Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has sent a complaint to the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention over the detention of a human rights activist and publisher of Saharareporters, Omoyele Sowore, and four other activists for protesting on New Year Eve protest.

It had been reported that Sowore, Juwon Sanyaolu, Peter Williams, Emmanuel Bulus and Damilare Adenola. were on Monday ordered to be remanded in Kuje Correctional Centre by a Magistrates’ Court in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja pending the consideration of their bail applications on Tuesday (today).


They were earlier arrested for holding a protest against bad governance on New Year’s Eve in Abuja and subsequently taken to a police unit infamously known as ‘Abattoir’ in the Lokogoma area of the FCT.

SERAP in a statement on Tuesday by its deputy director, Kolawole Oluwadare, said the complaint was sent to the UN body on Monday, January 4.

The organisation demanded the release of the detained activists and a probe into their arrest and detention.

Part of the statement read, “The detention of Omoyele Sowore and four other activists constitutes an arbitrary deprivation of their liberty because it does not have any legal justification. The detention also does not meet minimum international standards of due process.

“The arrest, continued detention and torture and ill-treatment of Mr Sowore and four other activists solely for peacefully exercising their human rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly is a flagrant violation of the Nigerian Constitution, 1999 (as amended) and international human rights law. They are now facing bogus charges simply for exercising their human rights.

“We urge the Working Group to request the Nigerian government to investigate and hold accountable all police officers and security agents suspected to be responsible for the unlawful arrest, continued detention, and torture and other ill-treatment of Mr Sowore and four other activists.”

The organisation also wants the Federal Government to award Sowore and four other activists compensation “for the violations they suffered as a result of their unlawful arrest, arbitrary detention, torture, and other ill-treatment.”
