The town of Ezinato in Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State was on Wednesday thrown into mourning as a man reportedly killed his brother, Sebastian.

It was gathered that the man, Chinwendu Okeke, was celebrating his victory in court over a protracted land dispute, with his car, when he allegedly crushed his brother, Sebastian.

According to eye witness account, Chinwendu, a bus driver was oscillating in his vehicle in wild jubilation in demonstration of his excitement when he mistakenly ran over his brother.

Mrs Agnes Uche, who spoke to journalists, said: “Chinwendu drove furiously around the village and while he was driving past his compound, his brother; Sebastian came out to caution him over his speed but he drove past by.

“I think he latter saw his brother through the rear mirror and reversed to hear what he was saying, but by then, his brother had already turned and was moving into the compound, when Chinwendu drove back and hit him.”

On his part, a brother to the deceased, Thompson Okeke, said that Sebastian was rushed to Regina Caeli Hospital, but was referred to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital where he was confirmed dead.

He added: “We regret what happened. It was our elder brother that ran over him while he was celebrating the victory our village recently secured in court in a protracted land issue we had with our neighbors, Umuanyom village.”

It was learnt that the Court of Appeal judgment favoured Ntoko Ezinato village against Umuayom Ezinato village and the judgment subsequently threw the beneficiaries into jubilation when the news filtered in.

While some indigenes of the community were said to have taken to drinking to celebrate the victory, others simply ran around the village in joy.

The police in the state however could not confirm the incident as of the time of filing the story as the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Haruna Mohammed, could not be reached as at the time of filing this report.

COVID-19: Kwara Govt. Approves N25,000 Daily Allowance For Doctors

The Kwara State Government has approved the payment of a daily N25,000 allowance for doctors in its employ, saying that the stipend is in appreciation for the sacrifices and efforts of frontline health workers in the state’s fight against the deadly coronavirus pandemic.

It said that the allowance payment would cut across all healthcare workers who were involved in the state’s Covid-19 response and that the amount payable to each cader would be determined according to the available categories.

The State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, confirmed the approval through a post on his social media page on Tuesday and expressed appreciation for the efforts of healthcare workers in the frontline of the state’s battle against coronavirus.

Abdulrazaq stated that no allowance could pay for the sacrifices being made by medical doctors and other healthcare workers in the state, but added that the daily disbursements would, however, acknowledge the esteem with which the government viewed its frontline respondents.

“We have approved N25,000 as daily allowance for medical doctors and varying daily allowance for other categories of health workers involved in our fight against COVID-19. This is to show appreciation to health workers as it’s impossible to pay them for their priceless sacrifices”, he said.

When the times are uncertain and filled with fears and worry, it is normal to want to share as much information with loved ones as you receive.

It is important, however, to be wary of sharing information that can be misleading or otherwise increase the fear and panic already being experienced by so many people connected to you.

Before you share information, ask yourself the following questions:

1) Where did this message originate from?

2) Does the information tally with information from the World Health Organisation or the NCDC?

3) How will this information affect the person I send this to psychologically?

Some messages can do more harm than good. Please, share only verified information from the NCDC and WHO, to stop the spread of fear, panic, and misinformation.
