55-year-old commercial driver gets N100, 000 bail over alleged theft of N140, 000

A 55-year-old commercial driver, Mustapha Mohammed, who allegedly stole N140, 000 belonging to one Hassan Lawal, was on Friday admitted to bail in the sum of N100,000 by an Igbosere Magistrates' Court in Lagos.

The Magistrate, Mr W. B. Balogun, also ordered that Mustapha should provide two sureties in like sum, as part of the bail conditions.

He added that the sureties must show evidence of two years tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

Balogun adjourned the case to May 16, for mention.

The accused, who resides at No. 2, Idowu Tailor St., Victoria Island, Lagos is facing a charge of stealing.

Earlier the Prosecutor, Insp. Igonbo Emby, had told the court that the accused committed the alleged offence in 2015, at his residence in the Eti-Osa area of Lagos State.

He said that the complaint asked the accused to help him keep the N140, 000.

"The accused converted the money, which was kept in his custody for safe keeping, to his own use and refused to refund it to the complaint," he said.

Emby said the offence contravened Section 285 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Seven children die after drinking dirty water in India

Seven children have been confirmed dead due to drinking of dirty water in India.

According to reports, since April 21, a total of 15 children aged between 8 and 12 years have been admitted to a nearby hospital in Jaipur city after falling ill.

Meanwhile, a probe was ordered to investigate the deaths.

``The children were brought in with similar complaints of diarrhoea, vomiting and dehydration.

``Most of them went into septic shock, which can be a result of toxins or sometimes a result of bacterial infection in the body,’’ hospital superintendent Ashok Gupta, said.

Police said that preliminary investigations showed the children had fallen ill after consuming dirty water but autopsy reports have yet to reveal the exact cause.

A report released by International Charity Water Aid said India had the world's highest number of people without access to clean water at 76 million.

``These people are forced to buy water at high prices or use supplies that were unsafe for consumption,’’ the report said.

The deaths have been reported as a searing heatwave prevails over large swathes of the country and 330 million people, and over a quarter of the country's population is affected by drought.

Indian media estimate that nearly 250 people had died in the heatwave since late March, particularly in the southern and eastern regions.

Senegal President Macky Sall on Friday urged member states of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) that had not yet signed the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) with theEuropean Union (EU) to do so quickly to enable the agreement to come into force.

“I want to appeal to ECOWAS member states that have not yet signed, to do so as soon as possible to enable EU-ECOWAS EPA to come into force,” he said.

Sall was speaking in Dakar during the opening of the 41st session of Ministerial Council of Africa-Caribbean-Pacific (ACP) with EU.

“We have spent much time and considerable efforts to negotiate and adopt these strategic frameworks of our future cooperation.

“We must embrace the spirit of compromise that guided the process.

“All is not finished,’’ Sall said, and called for prompt implementation of what had been agreed upon.

Speaking on relations between ACP and EU, the Senegalese president pointed out that it was a unique example of North-South partnership guided by an organised and solid institutional framework in matters of investments, trade and development support.

“Our role is to guarantee the continuity of history through consolidation of this special relationship in a rather complex context,” he said.
