The police have allegedly caused the death of an 80-year-old woman while trying to make an arrest.
According to Channels TV, the sad occurrence happened in Agulu community in Anaocha local government area of Anambra state.
As a result of this, the area has been thrown into mourning.
According to family sources, officers of the Special Anti-Cult section stormed the family’s compound early in the morning to arrest the deceased grandson for cult-related matters.
She was reportedly pleading with the officers to let go of the grandson before she was shoved aside by the officers and fell to her death.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that following public outcry, the governments of Anambra and Delta have removed the barricade mounted on the Niger Bridge as a measure to discourage inter-state movement.
The iron barricade which served as an artificial boundary between Asaba and Onitsha was removed after delegates of both state governments met on Tuesday, May 26, AIT News reports.
At the meeting, delegates from both sides discussed measures to curb the influx of persons through the boundary.
Ways of how to differentiate and how to unauthorized heavy-duty vehicles from genuine ones to reduce the pressure on the bridge were also discussed.
Moreover, the representatives agreed to exchange special security personnel who will facilitate the free movement of essential workers who used the bridge.
Legit.ng had also reported that almost a week after Orji Uzor Kalu's release from Kuje Custodial Centre, Abuja, the former governor of Abia state said he has already forgiven those who offended him while asking for forgiveness from those he has hurt.
According to TVC News, the chief whip of the Senate disclosed this when he received the leadership of the House of Representatives led by the deputy speaker, Ahmed Wase.
The former governor made a case for a reform of the judiciary after his recent experiences, adding that every Nigerian needs to have access to justice. Kalu went on to note that Nigeria’s Judicial system is in need of urgent reform.
Back in December 2019, the former House of Reps member was convicted for alleged looting of N7.65b belonging to Abia state. His conviction was, however, nullified by the Supreme Court while a retrial was ordered.
