Crime / DSS Operatives Descend On Journalists In Osun, Destroy Gadgets by WNRwriter: 9:18am On Aug 14, 2018
There was tension in Osun State on Monday night, as operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) attached to the Osun State Deputy Governor, Mrs Titi Laoye-Tomori attacked journalists returning from an assignment.
The journalists, who were party of Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s press crew, were said to be returning from the commissioning ceremony of a project at Oke-ila, Ifedayo Local Government area of the state when the incident happened.
It was gathered that trouble started when an operational vehicle carrying the operatives missed the entourage and it tried to manoeuvre its way. It made attempts to overtake the vehicle carrying newsmen at a dangerous bend of the road, which the driver resisted.
The operatives later waylaid the press team with their operational vehicle marked AR 482 KUJ, during which an operative, identified as Williams, reportedly pointed his gun at journalists and threatened to kill them.

In the ensuing melee, a senior reporter in the office of the Governor, Mr Adekunle Alabi, alongside the Channels Television cameraman, identified as Adewale were beaten to a pulp, while his camera worth N2.5m was damaged beyond repair.
A journalist with Osun Defender, who was part of the team told wapnetrealm that the operatives deliberately barricaded the road against the press crew, which eventually resulted to altercation.
He added that an operative, earlier identified as Williams, with other two security personnel, eventually descended on some journalists and damaged their equipment in the process.
wapnetrealm recalls that operatives of the DSS had on September 11, 2017, brutalised two journalists, Timothy Agbor of The Point Newspaper, and Toba Adedeji of Osun Defender at the premises of the Osun State House of Assembly in Osogbo.

Sports / Barcelona Kick Off In Spanish Super Cup With Messi As Captain by WNRwriter: 9:36am On Aug 12, 2018
Barcelona kick off a new season and a new era when they take on Sevilla in the Spanish Supercup in Morocco on Sunday with Lionel Messi newly installed as club captain.
Vist WAPNETREALM for more
Messi has occasionally worn the armband before when Andres Iniesta, who replaced Xavi as skipper in 2015, missed a game.
The Argentine has also led his country, with only mixed results.
With Iniesta moving to Japan, Messi takes the job full time starting in Tangiers after Sergi Roberto captained an inexperienced Barca squad during the club’s recent tour of the United States.
Messi can eclipse Iniesta in another way in the Supercup, as both have won a club-record 32 trophies with Barca and victory on Sunday would break the tie.

The match marks a break with tradition. Since its return in 1982, the competition has been played over two legs with each team hosting one game.
This season, with Sevilla in the Europa League and Barcelona keen to play in the lucrative International Champions Cup exhibition tournament in the United States, the Spanish football authorities switched to a single-game format.
They also moved the match across this Straits of Gibraltar to Morocco, where Spanish football is keenly followed.
Sevilla, who therefore lost an attractive home game against one of Europe’s most glamorous teams, protested to no avail.
This week the Spanish football authorities made another ruling that helped Barcelona, announcing that the normal restrictions on non-EU players in Spanish games would not apply.

One of Barca’s South Americans, Brazilian Philippe Coutinho, obtained his Portuguese passport on Friday, but the decision means that coach Ernesto Valverde can play three recent major signings Chilean Arturo Vidal and Brazilians Malcolm and Arthur together.
Barcelona could also give a debut to Clement Lenglet, a French defender they bought from Sunday’s opponent, Sevilla.
The game pits Barca, who won the Spanish double, against the club they thrashed 5-0 in the final of the Copa del Rey and who finished a distant seventh in La Liga.
Barcelona follow Sunday’s game with a home friendly against Boca Juniors on Wednesday before kicking off the defence of their Spanish league title at home to Alaves next Saturday evening.

After Sunday’s match, they must cross Europe to defend that slender lead in Lithuania next Thursday before kicking off their domestic league campaign at home to Villarreal on Sunday.
“It is more important to progress in the Europa League than win the Spanish Super Cup”, Joaquin Caparros, Sevilla’s director of football told the Cope radio station.

Crime / Kenya To Sensitise Lawyers On Anti-doping Laws by WNRwriter: 6:34pm On Aug 11, 2018
Executive Officer, Japhter Rugut, on Saturday, said that lawyers would be trained and sensitise on anti-doping cases to fight the scourge in the country.
Anti-doping is the use of banned athletic performance-enhancing drugs by athletes. The use of drugs to enhance performance is considered unethical, and therefore prohibited, by most international sports organisations, including the International Olympic Committee.
Furthermore, athletes (or athletic programmes) taking explicit measures to evade detection exacerbates the ethical violation with overt deception and cheating.
Kenya decried the lack of capacity in having competent lawyers to handle doping cases, Rugut said.

“We currently have many matters in court at the Sports Disputes Tribunal, that we have instituted since inception.
“What we have found out is that we have very few lawyers in this country, who specialise in anti-doping issues,” said Rugut.
The IAAF has classified Kenya, Ethiopia, Belarus and Ukraine as countries with highest potential of athletes abusing banned substances to enhance their performance.
Rugut said ADAK would soon submit a written proposal that will provide the framework on how it aspires to provide the technical grounding to advocates through its legal department.
The country’s anti-doping agency will put in place mechanisms to ensure that lawyers participating in the sensitisation and training forums earn Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points through the Law Society of Kenya.

LSK Chief Executive Officer, Mercy Wambua, welcomed the proposal saying anti-doping is one of the areas that would benefit lawyers.
“We look forward to working with ADAK in this endeavour and urge our members to take up the opportunity,” she said.
Over 50 Kenyan athletes have failed doping tests in the past six years.
All Kenyan athletes going for international competition will be tested three times in the 10 months prior to World Championships and Olympics

Politics / 'our Laws Against Sexual And Gender-based Violence Must Be Reviewed' - Governor by WNRwriter: 12:17am On Aug 10, 2018
'Our laws against sexual and gender-based violence must be reviewed' - Governor Ambode

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode on Thursday urged everyone to take a common stand against sexual and gender-based violence by advocating for the review of our laws to provide stiffer punishments for offenders given the serious threat the evil act poses to safety and security of women and the girl-child.

The Governor, who spoke through the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Tunji Bello at the 18th Regular National Council Meeting on Women Affairs and Social Development held at the Academy Inn, Agidingbi, Ikeja, added that it constitutes a social menace that must be kicked out of the nation’s social system in order to protect and preserve the dignity of womanhood.

He posited that to achieve social inclusion and integration for socio-economic development, everyone must identify and address decisively issues of gender inequality, girl child education, domestic violence and sexual abuse that have limited the capacity of women to achieve their full potentials and contribute their quota to the development of the economy.

“In Lagos State, the issue of sexual abuse and gender-based violence is being addressed continuously through the Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT)”, he explained.

He disclosed that the State Government is committed to ensuring the growth of every facet of the economy in every facet and will continue to invest significantly on safety and security as no economy can thrive in an atmosphere of fear, chaos and general insecurity.

He said the theme for the 18th Regular National Council Meeting: “Peace, Security and Social Inclusion: Key Building Blocks for Achieving Economic Growth and Sustainable Development”, touches directly the critical issues that determine the level of prosperity that can be attained by any society.

While stressing that the choice of the theme is instructive and reveals the untold hardship usually suffered by women and children in a state of insecurity, the Governor expressed the need to increase the involvement of women in the social, political and economic activities of the society. He reaffirmed the State's commitment to a system of governance which does not discriminate on the basis of gender, ethnicity and physical disability, asserting that all citizens without bias to gender have the opportunity to express their opinions on issues especially those that directly affect them.

The Governor explained that his administration believes in empowering the informal sector, constituted by women in the majority, so as to facilitate the process of socio-economic inclusion. He said the mandate of Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF) is to identify genuine and credible entrepreneurs and financially empower them to grow their businesses and establish new ones.

Politics / Presidential Candidate: Leave Nigerians Out Of It, Csos Tell PDP by WNRwriter: 5:11am On Aug 05, 2018
Two civil society groups have tackled the Peoples Democratic Party over its promise that it would let Nigerians decide its Presidential candidate for 2019.
The Transistion Monitoring Group and the Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership, noted that the opposition party was only “grandstanding and trying to pull the wool over Nigerians’ eyes.”
Chairman of TMG, Dr. Abiola Akiyode-Afolabi, said the choice of the PDP’s candidate is not a task for Nigerians; hence the party should not drag Nigerians to its political party politics.
She said, “They (PDP leaders) know what they are doing, they cannot be playing on people’s emotions and intelligence. Political parties in Nigeria are just selfish.
I actually don’t think that the issue is beyond making a choice for them. Nigerians can’t decide for PDP; it is their members that will decide and it is the best among them that they should present to Nigerians.

“How will Nigerians decide for them? Are Nigerians going to be part of those to vote in their primaries? So, it is about their card-carrying members. Given what they have seen and experienced in past elections, it is an opportunity for them to make the right choice among the people they have.
The CACOL Director, Debo Adeniran, said, “The PDP is fond of grandstanding. All what they are doing is to pretend to be democratic when they know that they are really not. They know that there is going to be a lot of disagreements and agitations, so to say, from all the quarters, which is going to bring some confusion.
“The PDP is in confusion already, and if they claim that they will allow Nigerians to decide their candidate, they are being clever by half. This is because not all Nigerians are members of their party.”

Also the Head of Transparency International in Nigeria, Musa Rafsanjani, said the PDP must live up to its promises of allowing for more transparency and credibility in its choice of the Presidential candidate.
The PDP had in an exclusive report published in Saturday PUNCH, said that as the 2019 general elections approached, it would rely on Nigerians to help the party choose its candidate for the presidential election.
But the PDP in its reaction on Saturday, vowed that there will be no ‘vote-buying’ at its national convention where it will elect its 2019 presidential candidate.
It also said that the delegates will be given a free hand to elect a candidate of their choice.
Ologbondiyan, who spoke with one of our correspondents, insisted that the leadership of the party would give the delegates a free hand to elect the candidate.
He said, “Nigerians will freely elect the presidential candidate of their choice at our convention. The delegates will not be teleguided there will not a vote-buying at all.
