The bandits, local sources said, killed one person and injured another after shooting randomly, to scare residents away.

The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, on Thursday, officially declared the second wave of the virus in Nigeria.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, stated this during the daily media briefing.

Mustapha, who was tested positive was represented by Aviation Minister Hadi Sirika.

According to him, Nigeria has entered a second wave of infections and stands the risk of losing the gains from the hard work of the last nine months.

Mustapha said the PTF believes that “if we do the right things, adhere to the Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions (NPIs) and step up our testing and detection, loss of lives will be minimized and the rising curve will begin to flatten out.”

According to him, while the country in the last two weeks on the one hand, received cheering news of the COVID-19 vaccine on the other hand, “we have witnessed spikes in number of infections at home and abroad. The real threat is upon humanity and the progress made in the global health sector in the last five decades or more.”

He said Nigeria’s cumulative numbers in the last weeks of 49-51 showed: “Week 49 – 1,843; Week 50 – 3,918 and Week 51 (Mon-Wed): 1,889.

“But you know that these vaccines are new and are in packets and the producers aren’t given any indemnity.

CBN Governor,Godwin Emefiele risks two years jail term over N182 billion debt

The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele, risks a two-year jail term over refusal to pay N182 billion judgement debt.

A contempt charge of two years imprisonment was filed against Emefiele to order payment of N182 billion naira to Ogoni people as ordered by a law court.

The 182 billion naira was awarded against oil giant Shell Petroleum over the devastating oil spill, caused by the Ogoni land by the company.

The Ogoni people represented by Chief Lucious Nwosu SAN, filed the contempt charge praying the Federal High Court in Abuja to commit Emefiele to prison for allegedly disregarding order of court that awarded the money to the aggrieved Ogoni people.

On Wednesday, counsel to the Ogoni people, Nwosu expressed disgust over the absence of the CBN governor in court.

Nwosu informed the trial judge, Justice Taiwo Taiwo that the charge against Emefiele is quasi -criminal in nature and warranted the physical presence of the CBN governor to answer the charge.

However, Damian Dodo, counsel to Emefiele, informed the court that it was not the habit of his client to underrate the court of law and assured that Emefiele will do the need at the appropriate time.

Justice Taiwo, after listening to arguments, adjourned the matter till January 26, 2021.

The judge directed that Emefiele and all those involved in the matter should obey court order during the next adjourned date.
