Soldiers Escort Herdsmen To Ogun Villages, Flog Residents For Rejecting Herders

Not a few residents of Ketu-speaking villages in Yewa North Local Government Area, Ogun State were brutalised by soldiers who escorted herdsmen to graze in the communities, prompting residents and monarchs to cry out to the military and state government for help, KUNLE AKINRINADE reports.

Barbaric To Threaten To Flog Those Without Face Mask – Ubani

Former Vice-President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr Monday Ubani, has described Ebonyi state governor’s threat to flog residents without face masks as barbaric. He also berated Cross River for making same comments earlier. Ubani said, “It will be an absurdity taken to the highest pinnacle to permit the executive that executes laws made by the legislature to begin to enact laws and creates offences in the state as being canvassed by some persons who ought to know.

Iran Threatens To Flog And Imprison Anyone Caught ‘Spreading Fake News’ About Coronavirus Outbreak
