Governors of the southern states held a meeting in Asaba, Delta state capital, in May 2021, where they resolved to ban the open grazing of cattle. At a subsequent meeting held in Lagos in June, the governors set a deadline of September 1 for the promulgation of the law.

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has expressed optimism that Nigeria would emerge from its challenges stronger. “We have challenges just like any other country in the world but we are going to overcome. Some countries have not even experienced half of what we are going through before they collapsed but everybody must do his own bit.
Senator Shehu Sani stated that “Kidnapping has become a lucrative business in the North West part of Nigeria whereby they have become an authority onto themselves. In our own state Kaduna, hardly a day goes by without reported cases of kidnapping. In fact, the ones that are reported are when the numbers are much not when they are three or four.”
Kaduna ‘is under siege’ by bandits and criminal elements and that because banditry and kidnapping have become very lucrative, stopping it now will be very hard says Sani.
He also stated that North Eastern Nigeria would be a safe place if the government spent a fraction of the time spent on fighting self determination agitations on bandits.

Harry Kane‘s hopes of moving from Tottenham to Manchester City are diminishing by the day as the two clubs remain some distance apart in their valuation of the England striker, the Daily Star reports. As the most keenly watched transfer saga of the summer continues, City are reportedly still £40million short of Spurs’ asking price of £160m.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has alleged that money laundering suspect, Abass Ramon, aka Hushpuppi, paid N8m or $20,600 to the embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, to arrest and detain a “co-conspirator,” Chibuzo Kelly Vincent.

Osun ward congresses properly conducted says Mr. Gbenga Elegbeleye, the chairman of the national committee of congress, Osun State.
Elegbeleye, at a news conference said the APC state secretariat explained that “those that were screened were allowed to participate in the congresses and they were the ones who participated in the congresses.”
Mr Elegbeleye yesterday unveiled the results of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ward congresses conducted last Saturday.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) has dissociated itself from claims by alias Momphs, that he was advised by the Commission to maintain a low profile in the wake of the indictment of his friend, Abbas Ramon, Hushpuppi in a $1.11m international fraud conspiracy by US Law enforcement.
According to the Commission statement, they are not in any business of advising suspected internet fraudsters and it is far-fetched that it would counsel one against whom it has pending criminal charge in court.
