Supreme Court Okays Saraki's Trial At CCT!

The appeal filed by Senate President Bukola Saraki to stop his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, was on Friday thrown out by the Supreme Court for lacking merit.



The Justice Walter Omoghen-led 6 man panel of judges ruled that the CCT was properly constituted to exercise jurisdiction over Saraki’s trial.

On the issue of whether the tribunal had jurisdiction to try criminal matters and issue bench warrants against Saraki, the court held: “I find no merit in the appeal, it is hereby dismissed.”

WOW! 25p Store In London!

London now has a supermarket where EVERYTHING costs 25p  



EasyJet’s founder is trying to undercut even Aldi and Lidl by opening his first easyFoodstore, where every item costs a mere 25p, in north London. It’s bargain time Londoners! 

The pilot supermarket opened yesterday in Park Royal and by closing time one family had reportedly managed to buy £27 worth of 25p goods. The store boasts basic back-of-your-cupboard staples ranging from tea and ginger nuts to sardines and chickpeas. But don’t head here for your five a day, as there is currently no fruit or veg in stock. Supermarkets on either end of the price spectrum (so Waitrose and Aldi) are currently doing better than the big four

The new enterprise, headed up by EasyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, sports the slogan: “No expensive brands. Just food honestly priced.” Sounds about right to us. Will you be heading to north London to fill a basket? 

Zika virus infection 'through sex' reported in US

A rare case of the Zika virus being transmitted through sex, not a mosquito bite, has been reported in the US.

A patient infected in Dallas, Texas, is likely to have been infected by sexual contact, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) told the BBC.

The person had not travelled to infected areas but their partner had returned from Venezuela.

Zika is carried by mosquitoes and has been linked to thousands of babies being born with underdeveloped brains.

It is spreading through the Americas and the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the disease linked to the virus a global public health emergence

The American Red Cross has meanwhile urged prospective blood donors returning from Zika-hit countries to wait at least 28 days before donating their blood.

The "self-deferral" should apply to people returning from Mexico, the Caribbean or Central or South America during the past four weeks, the Red Cross said in a statement.

Elsewhere:
Two cases of the Zika virus have been confirmed in Australia. Officials said the two Sydney residents had recently returned from the Caribbean.
Zika has also been found in two unrelated cases in the Republic of Ireland, officials there said. A man and an older woman, who have both recovered, had a history of travelling to a Zika-affected country.
The UK has announced people will not be able to donate blood for 28 days after returning from a Zika-affected country.

Meanwhile, Brazil - the country worst hit by the outbreak - has revealed it is investigating 3,670 suspected cases of microcephaly in babies linked to the Zika virus.
