Nigeria was once the world’s largest producer of palm oil.
Today, Nigeria has spent over $3.2bn on importation of Palm Oil in 10 years
A 30-year-old tailor, Busayo Owoodun, has been killed by a stray bullet fired by the police in Lagos.
The Anti-Kidnapping Squad attached to ‘M’ Command, Idimu, were said to be on the trail of some kidnap suspects when the hoodlums allegedly attacked them along Ijegun-Isolo road.
In retaliation, police said it opened fire on the hoodlums and Owoodun was allegedly hit by a stray bullet.
The police claimed three officers, including an Assistant Superintendent of Police, were injured by the hoodlums.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Bala Elkana, said the Commissioner of Police, Muazu Zubairu, had order investigation into the incident.
He added that the CP had condoled with Owoodun’s family.
He said, “A stray bullet hit one Busayo Owoodun. The gang with the support of some notorious cultists in the area, attacked the police team and injured the leader, ASP Victor Ugbegun, and two others who are currently in critical condition at the intensive care unit of a hospital.
“With reinforcements from Operations Department, Rapid Response Squads, Task Force, and neighbouring divisions we were able to contain the situation and take the injured officers to hospital.
“The command has launched a manhunt of the assailants with a view to bringing them to justice.
“The corpse of the victim of the stray bullet was taken to hospital for autopsy. The Commissioner of Police has ordered a full investigation into the case.”
According to Nigeria History and Facts on Twitter, Nigeria was at a point in time, the largest producers of palm oil in the world.
In a contrasting turn of events, however, the country has spent more than $3.2bn on the importation of Palm Oil during a period of ten years.
This shows how much things have changed over the years.
Iranian President, Hassan Rouhani’s brother has begun a five-year sentence after he was convicted of corruption, BBC News reports.
Hossein Fereydoun, who served as an aide to the president, was first arrested in July 2017.
However, he was put on trial in February this year on allegations of financial violations.
Hossein was convicted of “receiving bribes” in May 2019 and sentenced to seven years.
An appeal court decision later reduced the jail term, but ordered him to return any property that he had acquired illicitly and fined him an equivalent of $9m in Iranian currency.
Hossein’s lawyer told local reporters that his client entered Tehran’s Evin prison on Wednesday.
“This morning, Mr Fereydoun together with myself were present at the prosecutor’s office,” Hossein Sartipi was quoted as saying.
“After legal procedures were completed, he was taken to Evin prison and was admitted to the prison,” he added.
Fereydoun acted as a key adviser and gatekeeper to the president before his arrest.
The brothers do not share the same surname because Rouhani changed his to a word meaning ‘spiritual’ or ‘cleric’ decades ago after joining a seminary.
Rouhani had promised to curb corruption in the 2013 and 2017 presidential election campaigns.
