Kyle Walker is facing disciplinary action from Man City after hosting ‘sex party’ during lockdown

Kyle Walker is facing disciplinary action from Manchester City after reportedly breaking coronavirus lockdown conditions by hosting a “ sex party ” even though he has advised people to stay at home .

The England defender , 29 has apologised after the Sun newspaper reported that he invited two call girls to his flat on Tuesday.

On Wednesday Walker posted on social media, urging the public to follow government guidelines on social distancing .

Britain reported 621 more deaths from COVID – 19 as of 1600 GMT on Saturday , taking the total toll to 4 , 934 .

“ I want to apologise to my family , friends, football club , supporters and the public for letting them down , ” Walker said in a statement .

“ There are heroes out there making a vital difference to society at the moment and I have been keen to help support and highlight their amazing sacrifices and life -saving work over the past week . ”

Walker is the second high -profile Premier League player to have been caught flouting the government ’ s guidelines after Aston Villa ’ s Jack Grealish .

The Villa captain went to a party last weekend and was pictured next to a road in slippers , just hours after he posted a video urging fans to stay safe at home on social media.

Grealish apologised and was fined and disciplined by Villa .

Football is on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak and City will now look into Walker ’ s conduct.

A club statement said : “Our staff and players have been working to support the incredible efforts of the NHS (National Health Service ) and other key workers in fighting the effects of the COVID – 19 coronavirus in any way we can .

Kyle ’ s actions in this matter have directly contravened these efforts .

“ We are disappointed to hear the allegations, note Kyle ’ s swift statement and apology , and will be conducting an internal disciplinary procedure in the coming days. ”

I didn’ t disagree with Burna Boy, Why would I disagree with someone about his own life -Seun kuti

Recently , it was believed that musician and son of the legendary Afrobeats maestro , Fela Anikulapo- Kuti , Seun , took a dig at singer, Burna Boy , after the latter declared that no artiste paved the way for him

Seun Kuti said it was wrong to accuse him of criticising his colleague.

He said , “ I didn’ t disagree with Burna Boy .

Why would I disagree with someone about his own life ?

That would be wrong . I don’ t want people to misinterpret what I wrote independently .

I am not personal with my issues . African music has always been a large family for me .

So , it is impossible for me not to pay homage to many great African artistes , especially when many of them have impacted our lives directly .

It is a form of disrespect when someone makes a blanket statement and people try to attach it to one person .

We are Africans and we are respectful people .

Unlike politics , our musical ancestry has been very loyal and patriotic and we also give them that loyalty and respect .

For me , I really respect the African music ancestry, so I wouldn’ t criticise Burna Boy . ”

The Grammy Awards nominee also noted that the coronavirus pandemic had exposed the failings of the country’ s healthcare system.

He added , “ There are microbiologists and epidemiologists that graduated from our universities.

Those are the people that should be speaking up now but because Nigeria did not give them the opportunity to fulfill their potentials , many of them are now fashion designers , shoemakers and chefs .

In a country without the right ratio of doctors to citizens, it goes without saying that the healthcare system is overwhelmed .

The elite are going to be exposed for the hypocrites that they are.

So far, nobody has donated the equivalent of the cost of a private jet to Nigeria (to fight the pandemic).

Meanwhile , they have made billions off Nigerians.

Every Nigerian billionaire is a product of Nigeria ’ s commonwealth .

There is nothing special they have added to us .

(Rather) , we are the ones that have made their lives better ; yet , at a time like this , you would see them donating what I consider to be stipends.

So , they cannot invest the cost of one private jet in our lives?

Since 1999 that this new democratic dispensation has been creating new billionaires,

how many of them have come together to create even one good hospital ?

And since the coronavirus pandemic started ,

how many of them have come up with long – term solutions?

Meanwhile , these same people donate billions to political parties during elections.

We all need to wake up and to try to make government find a way out of this because the solution is not just sharing hand sanitisers.

There are many African people that do not have access to clean water and without water at all.

There is no proper sanitation . Without water, we cannot talk about hygiene . ”

IATA revealed Nigeria risks 91,380 aviation job losses

The International Air Transport Association says as revenue losses mount in Nigeria , about 91, 380 jobs in the nation ’ s aviation industry are on the line.

In a country specific analysis of the effects of COVID – 19 on airlines’ operations , IATA said Nigeria would record 3 . 5 million fewer passengers , resulting in a $ 0 . 76 bn revenue loss, risking 91, 380 jobs and $ 0 . 65bn in contribution to the country’ s economy .

The association had earlier predicted that the disruption to air travel due to the continued spread of coronavirus would cost Nigeria ’ s aviation industry over $ 434 m in revenue, 22, 200 jobs and approximately 2 . 2 million passengers up from the 853 , 000 losses in passenger volumes and $ 170 m loss in base revenue projected in early March .

IATA called for an urgent action from the government to provide financial relief to airlines as the latest scenario for potential revenue loss by carriers , especially in Africa reached $ 4 bn .

“ This translates into a drop of industry revenues of 32 per cent for Africa for 2020 as compared to 2019, ” IATA said .

The association noted that to minimise the broad damage that the losses would have across African economies , it was vital that governments stepped up their efforts to aid the industry .

IATA said , “ Many governments in the region have committed to provide relief from the effect of COVID – 19.

And some have already taken direct action to support aviation but more help is needed . IATA is calling for a mixture of direct financial support , loans , loan guarantees , support for the corporate bond market and tax relief.

“ The air transport industry is an economic engine, supporting up to 8 . 6 million jobs across Africa and the Middle East and $ 186 bn in the GDP .

Every job created in the aviation industry supports another 24 jobs in the wider economy . Governments must recognise the vital importance of the air transport industry , and that support is urgently needed . ”

According to the association , airlines are fighting for survival in every corner of the world as travel restrictions and evaporating demand mean that aside from cargo, there is almost no passenger business .

It explained that failure by governments to act now would make the crisis longer and more painful , adding that airlines had demonstrated their value in economic and social development and governments needed to prioritise them in rescue packages.

Housewife hacks mother inlaw to death in Nasarawa

A Nasarawa state-based housewife, Rosemary Osegba Clem, has said she has no regrets hacking her mother in-law, Mrs Ashi Clem, to death in Abena community in Doma Local Government Area of the state on March 18, over the woman’s interference in her marriage.

In an interview with The Nation, Rosemary said she and Abaagu Clem, a farmer and trader, got married in February 2016 but the marriage was yet to produce a child.

According to Rosemary, her and her mother in-law became sworn enemies the day Clem, an only child, introduced her as his wife to be.

Rosemary says efforts by her mother-in-law to get Clem not to marry her, proved abortive as he stood his ground, insisting she was the one for him.

Clem’s decision to defy his mother and go ahead with the marriage allegedly didn’t go well with his mother as she allegedly swore never to allow the marriage to work.

Rosemary said her mother in-law never hid her hatred for her as every little issue they had was easily amplified to a major issue, resulting in a quarell and physical fight in many cases.

According to Rosemary, her inability to bear a child for her husband saw her mother in-law mounting pressure on him to take another wife.

She said her husband at a time began yielding to his mother’s pressure and was introduced to a girl who started living with her mother in-law.

The imminent threat to her marriage forced her to take her mother in-law’s life as she could not share him with another woman.

Rosemary fetched an axe in the early hours of Saturday, March 18, 2020, walked into her mother-in-law’s room and hacked her to death in her asleep.
Rosemary in the interview said she is ready to face the consequences.

“My mother-in-law made life unbearable for me because I could not bear a child for her son. It has been hell for me from day one of this marriage.

My mother-in-law did everything humanly possible for me to leave the marriage.

She always swore that if indeed she was my husband’s mother, she would not allow the marriage to work.

I did everything humanly possible to appease her, but it was all to no avail.

She insisted that I must leave the house and that her son must get married to another girl.

True to her threats, she went as far as getting another girl for my husband.

I also blame my husband for telling his mother everything about our private matters, including sex, finance and other issues.

My husband always complained that I refused him sex most times, even though I told him that I’m not the type that likes to have sex all the time.

I don’t have sexual feelings like other women because I was circumcised. But I told him I loved him.

We had sex only once in a week, but he couldn’t bear it, and he told his mother who had already developed hatred for me about it.

My husband decided to focus his attention on the new girlfriend his mother brought for him.

Most times, the girl would spend a whole week in my mother-in-law’s apartment with the consent of my husband.

When I could no longer bear it, I took the decision to eliminate her so that I can save my marriage.

I still love my husband and cannot afford to share him with anybody.

It is God that gives children. I strongly believe that one day, I will also take in and deliver.

It is all in God’s hands. She accused me openly of cheating on her son by calling me all sorts of names, which is embarrassing to me.

I was ashamed of myself even moving around.

I don’t know what I did to her.

The trauma and intimidation became unbearable for me, so I was forced to kill her before she would disgrace me out of my husband’s house.

My parents are no longer alive.

If she gets me out of this marriage, where will I go?

Ordinarily, I don’t have much problem with my husband.

We always have a way of settling our issues.

But her interference was overbearing.

In the midst of these, my husband, who used to love me so much suddenly changed and was completely obeying his mom’s directives and I watched him sleep with the proposed girl by his mother, it was clear that he does not have feelings for me anymore.

I took the decision (to kill her) because I was ready for the worst.

The marriage had become boring and characterized by crisis, courtesy of my mother in law.

At a point, it became obvious to me that the marriage had irretrievably broken up.

I suggested to my husband that since he was convinced by what his mother was telling him, he should let us call it over and I would move on, but he refused.

So I concluded that killing her would stabilise my marriage and restore my happiness.

I hatched the plan for some time but only made up my mind to execute it today.” she said

On his part, 43 years old, Mr. Chem, the only son of his parents, who had lost his father when he was only 18 years old, said he was shocked and confused about the whole incident.

He said he loved and misses his mother

“She taught me to be the man that I am today—strong, kind and someone who believed in giving a second chance.

When my father died, things were not easy, but this woman stood by me to survive the trauma.

I am really hurt and traumatised by the violent and horrifying act she committed.

My mother was compassionate and caring.

Never did I doubt her unconditional love for me.

She had taught me to dream and ultimately to live unselfishly.

“My mother was not wicked or cold-blooded as my wife is painting her.

I used to tell her to be calm, but she refused.

What does she want me to do?

To fight my mother who gave birth to me?

Now that she has killed my mother, she will be the one to tell me what she wants, and at the appropriate time, I will battle it out with her. I won’t take it lightly.”he said
