It was gathered that the naval officer allegedly fled from the isolation center after not being allowed to smoke marijuana. An eyewitness said; 

“He came to the isolation centre with a knife, it was this knife he used to chase the security manning the gates before escaping."

Anagwu said; 

“When they brought him into isolation, he started making requests for weed which of course they wouldn’t give him at the isolation centre. 
“Usually, once in a while they allow the patients to step outside just to get sunlight and come back in. But this time around when they came out, he had a knife on him, you know being a military man, and he brandished it, chasing off the security manning the gates. That was how he left.”

The situation report sent out by naval authorities reads; 

“At about 1500, SM Ahmadu U X13125 serving onboard BMU Warri absconded from COVID 19 Isolation Centre Oghara. His phone number is 09026268804,” the report read.  
“It is suspected that the rating could find his way to any Naval or Military Base within DELTA AOR. Therefore, all personnel are advised to be mindful and report his whereabout to the OOD/MOIC for proper containment/evacuation protocol.”

AEFUTH doctors narrate how they've been forced to borrow money after working for 5 months without pay










A number of resident doctors working at Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital (AEFUTH) in Abakiliki have taken to Twitter to cry out over non-payment of salaries since they started working at the institution.

The doctors, who were employed to AEFUTH in December, alleged they have not been paid since they resumed work till now (5 months) and there is little to no hope of receiving their salaries until the COVID-19 crisis is over.

Most of the doctors ahave taken to borrowing money from friends and they shared how embarrassing it has been for them as medical doctors and essential workers, working everyday during the lockdown, yet having to borrow money from friends who are staying at home.

A medical doctor who works at AEFUTH told LIB of a resident doctor at Abakiliki who broke down in tears during surgery after he got news that his father suffered a stroke and is now in a coma.

In the presence of patients, the doctor was inconsolable as he lamented the fact that he never received his salary for one day since he started working and as such, he cannot take care of his sick father or reward him for all the years he sent him to school.

Doctors who spoke to LIB explained that they were informed that in order to get paid, their bio-data will have to be captured into the IPPIS first. Unfortunately, the IPPIS office in Abuja is on lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

One of the affected doctors said: "They keep telling us that unless IPPIS comes to capture us that we will never be paid. Even if the pandemic keeps getting worse as it is currently getting. 

'Even if it lasts for 2 years. They keep saying there is no way we will be paid. Imagine the injustice.

"Some of us had good jobs we were doing before we got here. We only came here to work for the government and do residency. Imagine my sadness to have left a comfortable life for this evil system that doesn’t care if I died or not? 


"I wonder why they are so inefficient. How could they simply refuse to pay us unless the pandemic ends?

"I have tried all my best to get a loan but nothing is forth coming because I have borrowed so much already. I have tried to sell anything of worth that I have but no buyers are coming since the pandemic froze the economy. I am totally broken and bankrupt and feeding is now very difficult for me."

The doctors said they have gone to complain  to management but were threatened with retrenchment if they keep complaining.

Another doctor told LIB: "It’s not like we hadn’t started earlier to plead with them to find a way to pay us only for them to keep telling us to basically keep quiet and die in silence in order to still keep our jobs.

"Imagine that? Threatening workers who are being owed with sack simply because they are asking for their salaries?

"I remember the first time we went to ask the management about our salaries. Having waited for four months, we had gathered a few of us and went to the management to ask for our pay. We were almost in tears as we went. We were hoping for something hopeful only to get told to go home if we were tired of working. 


"They didn’t even consider that we were heavily in debts and basically had no means of survival even if we went home. 

"Can you imagine me going home to depend on my aged parents? The wickedness in this country will astound even the devil."

He continued: "I have not been paid any salaries since I started working for the federal government as a resident doctor.

It’s been 5 months now without pay, and counting. It’s been 5 months of starvation and lack, of desperation and fear, of anxiety and total despondence.


"I am the first born who is supposed to cater for my family. Especially with the coronavirus pandemic which has totally erased my old parent’s other means of livelihood. 

"It’s been five months of total hopelessness because the hospital I am working for, Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki has been telling us all sorts of stories pertaining when we will be paid. The last time we were addressed we were simply told to keep quiet and wait for the pandemic to be over before we would be captured by IPPIS and hence, be considered for payment."


A married father who works at AEFUTH lamented about the situation. He said the salaries owed them has made him unable to fulfill his responsibilities to his family. He added that his wife and children are starving and his wife has been forced to take up odd jobs to provide for the family.

Below are tweets from doctors narrating their ordeal.

Deaths in Azare town was caused by seasonal heatwave and not Coronavirus - Bauchi government
The Bauchi State Government on Sunday May 10, countered claims of Coronavirus being the cause of the increased number of deaths recorded in Azare town. 

Bauchi state deputy governor, Senator Baba Tela told journalists that deaths recorded in Azare area of the state was caused by the seasonal heatwave and not Coronavirus. 

Tela who is also the Chairman of the state taskforce on COVID-19, told members of the public not to believe social media reports of 300 people dying in one week in the town as it is not true. 

He said; 

“On the issue of deaths that have been happening in Azare, we got different reports. Some people said five deaths have been recorded, others said 300 people died in the last two to three days.
“I personally went and spoke to people who work at mortuary and bury people. I discovered that yes, there have been a number of deaths. This death is seasonal. It happens like that sometimes when it is very hot or cold. The same thing happened in Kano and Jigawa. We are all around the same axis.
“But I can tell you and I am very sure, the number of deaths is nowhere near what people are saying."

Covid-19: UK Government extends lockdown by three more weeks

















Covid-19: UK Government extends lockdown by three more weeks
The United Kingdom will be extending the Coronavirus lockdown by three more weeks, Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has announced.

The U.K. has the second-highest confirmed coronavirus death toll in the world and the highest in Europe. The country has reported more than 220,000 recorded cases and 31,000 deaths from the virus as of Sunday, May 10, according to John Hopkins Univeristy.

Making the announcement on Sunday, Boris said 'now isn't the time to lift the lockdown' as he unveiled cautious plans to lift restrictions imposed seven weeks ago.

"This is not the time simply to end the lockdown this week," he said in a televised address

Covid-19: UK Government extends lockdown by three more weeks

Johnson, who recently recovered from Coronavirus, said there would be some easing of restrictions from Wednesday, allowing "unlimited exercise", sport and sunbathing, but only within households. He added that some primary school children could return and shops re-open from June 1. He labelled this first easing of lockdown as Step 1.
"In step two, at the earliest by June 1, after half-term, we believe we may be in a position to begin the phased reopening of shops and to get primary pupils back into school, in stages, beginning with reception (age four to five), year one (age five to six) and year six (10-11)," Johnson daid.

In step three, "at the earliest by July... we will hope to reopen at least some of the hospitality industry and other public places, provided they are safe and enforce social distancing", he added.

Johnson said some public places could re-open from July 1 but warned immigrants and visitors travelling to Britain would face quarantine measures.

He noted that transitioning to each stage is "conditional" and depends on "all of us, the entire country, to follow the advice, to observe social distancing, and to keep that [rate of infection] down."

The UK has passed it's peak death rate but Johnson indicated restrictions could be reimposed, including locally, if there is a surge in cases. ''It would be madness to waste the sacrifices the public had made since the lockdown.''
"We have been through the initial peak but it is coming down the mountain that is often more dangerous," he added.
