Over 4,300 people were arrested last weekend in Morocco for breaching emergency rules issued to combat the novel Coronavirus.

Gospel singer, Nathaniel Bassey and wife, Sarah celebrate 7th wedding anniversary

Nigerian gospel singer, Nathaniel Bassey and his wife Sarah Bassey took to Instagram to celebrate their 7th wedding anniversary.

Nathaniel Bassey who penned down a heartfelt to his wife, disclosed that he met her 12 years ago on a ministry assignment in Eket, Akwa Ibom State.

He wrote;


About 12 years ago I met her. Went on a ministry assignment to Eket Akwa Ibom State.
She was assigned to protocol the woman of God @bemighoomayuku I was ministering with. Not knowing she left her spiritual responsibility to desire this guest music minister (Just kidding)

Anyway, long story short, She agreed to marry me. And there was nothing in the material to motivate her. Well, I remember telling her “I love God, and I work hard, and if you agree to marry me, I’ll take you away from this mkpok local government and we would travel the entire world impacting lives for Christ..” Sure she thought within her “...with this your Akpuruka Kia car abi ..?” At the end, she entered that same Akpuruka motor . And the rest they say is history. I remember someone saying to her “Is this the best you can do for your self???” But hey! She took the risk. And today she says it was well worth it.

We called our wedding/marriage THE SARANATA PROJECT. Coined from both our names. And the God who does not abandon His projects has
been helping us. Through thick and thin, He has kept us. We have both seen The forces of hell and darkness literally come for us. I mean, Real attack. Well, understandably so. They can’t stand the damage we keep doing to them. But each time, we have come out victoriously. So today, I say THANK YOU LORD. We are here because you kept us. And to my darling, I say Thank you for taking that leap of faith. It takes one with deep conviction to have done so, even when I said I had no regular salary etc.

So please don’t judge her when she looks so beautiful and has the good things of life. SHE PAID THE PRICE.
My prayer today is Psalm 138:8. “The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.”
??Psalms? ?138:8? ?KJV?? He will perfect that which concerns us, and never abandon His project, in Jesus’ name.

Happy anniversary Honey !

Sarah in her wedding anniversary message to her husband, also recalled meeting him at the airport. She revealed that in their first meeting, she caught her husband stealing glances at her through the vanity mirror.

Sarah wrote;

I remember when I first saw this tall handsome guy walk out of the airport(still does) that Thursday afternoon, he was our guest but he wasn’t my business as I was focused on receiving a female guest minister.
The ride back to my local assembly was a long one and he wasn’t suppose to be in the same car as I, but there he was.

On a number of cases I caught him @nathanielblow stealing glances at me through the vanity mirror............the rest they say is history, and I’ll keep telling it in parts.

Those same soft brown beautiful eyes haven’t stopped starring even now as I write this but boy am super glad I get to see them everyday.
Happy anniversary to us babe! 7 down 4eva 2 go.

A family spokesperson confirmed her death in a statement released by his team on Monday.

"Jackie, as she was affectionately known among family and friends, had been battling the virus for more than a month when she succumbed on April 13th," the statement said.

"Jackie was many things to many people — a wife, a mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. The matriarch of the Towns family, she was an incredible source of strength; a fiery, caring and extremely loving person who touched everyone she met. Her passion was palpable and her energy will never be replaced.

"The Towns family is extremely grateful for the outpouring of love and support they have received during this very difficult time."— Minnesota Timberwolves (@Timberwolves) April 13, 2020

His father, Karl Towns Sr., also contracted Coronavirus but was said to be doing well while in quarantine.

China imposes restriction on research on origin of Coronavirus

China has imposed a restriction on the publication of an academic research on the origins of the novel Coronavirus.

In now-deleted notices published by two Chinese universities, the Central Government directed that all academic work on Coronavirus will go through extra vetting before being submitted for publication. Studies on the origin of the virus will receive extra scrutiny and must be approved by central government officials.

Ministry of Education's science and technology department said;

"Academic papers about tracing the origin of the virus must be strictly and tightly managed."

The new directive is based on instructions issued during a March 25 meeting, held by the State Council's task force on the prevention and control of COVID-19. The document was first posted on Friday morning on the website of the Fudan University in Shanghai, one of China's leading universities. It was taken down after CNN contacted the university.

This is reportedly the Chinese government's latest effort to tighten its grip on the publication of COVID-19 research, amid previous reports of its ploy to control the narrative on the origins of the Coronavirus pandemic.

A Chinese researcher who spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity, said the development might obstruct important scientific research.

The researcher said;

"I think it is a coordinated effort from (the) Chinese government to control (the) narrative, and paint it as if the outbreak did not originate in China. And I don't think they will really tolerate any objective study to investigate the origination of this disease."

Before the new directive, Chinese researchers have published series of COVID-19 studies in influential international medical journals. Some of findings about early coronavirus cases such as when human-to-human transition first appeared clashed with the official government account of the outbreak, and it led to a controversy on Chinese social media.

Since the emergence of Coronavirus in late 2019, over 100,000 people have died and 1.8 million people have been infected worldwide.

Oby Ezekwesili's twins tackle Governor El-Rufai's son, Bello after he 'disrespected their mother'

The Oby Ezekwesili's twins, Chine and Chuba tackled Governor Nasir El-Rufai's son, Bello after he disrespected their mother.

Bello El-Rufai had slammed the BBOG activist after she asked him to apologize for threatening to "pass a Twitter user's mother to his friends", a threat many interpreted as gang-rape.

Oby Ezekwesili tweeted;

“Did I just see horrific tweets from your handle threatening gang-rape? What was that? Why the ethnic vitriol toward Igbos? What’s that, Bello? Too tragic!

“You need to not just immediately apologise for those vile tweets but get into an anger management program quickly.

“I have maintained that we can disagree without being disagreeable. We can object without being objectionable. Healthy debates and divergences that arise are important for democratic development of societies.”

Bello who went off on a rant thereafter against the former Minister of Education, also threatened to "attach receipts and her begging days".

His mother, Hadiza El-Rufai also tweeted that she is "not surprised" when a Twitter user disclosed that Oby Ezekwesili "jumped over all the issues, insults and bigotry and slid comfortably into the narrative she felt comfortable with."

However the Ezekwesili twins tackled Bello over his threat, by releasing their own receipts from his father's (Nasir El-Rufai) book and his (Bello) tweets.

Chuba tweeted;

Chine tweeted;

Bello has since deleted his tweets.
