Hopes that religious centres would soon hold services were dashed yesterday as some states retained the ban imposed by the Federal Government with a view to containing the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

 

The Federal Government had on Monday eased the restriction on worship centres. But churches and mosques in Lagos State will not reopen due to a disagreement between the state government and religious leaders over protocols and guidelines.

 

The possibility of reopening has been ruled out, declared Commissioner for Home Affairs, Anofiu Elegushi at a press briefing to commemorate the first year in office of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

 

Elegushi said: “Even before the pronouncement by the Federal Government, we have been having meetings with the religious leaders. We even had one with the Safety Commission, looking at the possibility of reopening of religious houses.

 

“We also had one with the leaders of the two faiths. I want to tell you categorically that at that meeting, the possibility of reopening religious houses was ruled out totally. They claimed they could not take the responsibility of ensuring that only 20 or 50 people are praying behind them.

Manchester United have secured the service of former Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo for another six months until January after reaching an agreement with the Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.

“The Nigerian striker’s stay was initially due to end on 31 May but he will now remain with the Reds until 31 January 2021, enabling him to build on an impressive start to life with the club he supported as a boy.”

However, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has thanked Shanghai Shenhua for allowing the Ajegunle-born striker to remain with Red Devils longer than previously agreed.

“They [Shanghai Greenland Shenhua] have been great towards us, allowing him to play for his dream club,” Solskjaer said.

“It’s been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish what he started and win a trophy with us.”

Ighalo’s current deal at Shenhua runs out in December 2022 and he will be expected to sign a contract offer until the end of 2024 worth £400,000 a week.

The Senate on Tuesday asked the relevant authorities to ensure stiffer punishments for rapists in the country.

The red chamber took the decision following a motion on the increased cases of rape in Nigeria by Senator Sandy Onu.

Onu had drawn the attention of his colleagues to the recent rape and killing of the late Miss Vera Omozuwa and other reported cases across the country.

The rape and murder of Vera, which took place in a church in Benin, Edo State capital, last week, had sparked outrage across Nigeria.

The late Vera Omozuwa, a 22-year-old microbiology student, had utilised the quietness of her empty church in Benin to study.

Some hoodlums shortly after she settled down to start reading, besieged the church, raped, and killed her.

The Senate condemned the act and asked the security agencies to apprehend the perpetrators and bring them to justice.

The federal lawmakers also asked the security agencies to enforce the Child Rights Act as it affects the girl-child marriage.

They also sought stiffer punishments for rapists in the country.

The Senators equally asked the Federal Government to stage aggressive campaigns against rape in the country
