Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin has confirmed to the national cabinet on Tuesday that he was self-isolating after contacts with several Coronavirus-positive people.

He added that one of them was inoculated against the Coronavirus but did not manage to get a booster shot timely.

“I had to postpone my visit to Tajikistan, because several people in my close entourage fell ill. One of them, a person who works in close contact with me, was vaccinated, and his antibody titer decreased and he got re-vaccinated.

“It appeared that it was a bit late, as I believe he felt ill three days after re-vaccination.

“I communicated with him all day long,” Putin said.

The Russian leader assured that his antibody titer was still high. (Sputnik/NAN) (www.nannews.ng)

George Floyd’s Killer Derek Chauvin Appeals Against 22 Years Conviction

Published

on

Former Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, convicted of the murder of African-American man George Floyd in 2020 has decided to appeal against his conviction.

Chauvin was sentenced to over 22 years in jail after kneeling on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes in March 2020.

His death sparked mass protests against racism and police brutality in the US and all over the world.

He was found guilty of second-degree murder and other charges, was barred from owning firearms for life and also told to register as a predatory offender.

Derek Chauvin, a white man, says there were issues with the jury at the trial and that it should not have taken place in the US state of Minneapolis, citing bias against him.

According to court documents filed on Thursday, September 23, Chauvin alleges that the trial judge abused his discretion at several key points of the case, including denying a request to postpone or move the hearing from Minneapolis due to pre-trial publicity.

Chauvin also said he had no legal representative for the appeal process as the Minnesota police department’s “obligation to pay for my representation terminated upon my conviction and sentencing”,

Chauvin then asked the US Supreme Court to review an earlier decision to deny him a publicly-financed lawyer.

Chauvin, 45, was given 90 days from the date of his sentencing on 25 June to appeal against his conviction.

…Says He’s Feeling Useless Without Her

Big Brother Naija, BBNaija season 6 housemate, Saga on Wednesday morning, broke down in tears over Nini’s disappearance.

Saga, sitting in the garden after morning exercise, broke down in tears.

Recall that Biggie during a diary session on Tuesday instructed Nini to use a secret emergency exit upstairs and leave the house for 24 hours.

She was instructed to keep the secret and not disclose it to anyone.

Biggie gave Nini the task after she broke down in tears and complained about being exhausted.

This threw Saga and the other housemate into confusion, as they couldn’t sleep in their rooms after they noticed that Nini was nowhere to be found.

Meanwhile, Saga also revealed that he doesn’t know what to do with his life as his love interest, Nini is nowhere to be found.

Saga who looked very sad and gloomy while talking to his microphone was heard begging Biggie to bring Nini back.

“Big Brother please please please, I’m talking to my microphone now because I don’t know what else to do.

“I honestly don’t know what to do with my life again. This is no longer funny. This thing doesn’t make sense to me,” he said.

Recall that Nini left the Big Brother house to begin the secret task she was given on Tuesday.

Biggie, during a diary session, told Nini to use a secret emergency exit upstairs and leave the house for 24 hours.

Following the development, few hours after Nini left the house, Saga raised an alarm that she was nowhere to be found.

He alerted other housemates who helped him to search the whole house but to no avail.

Saga, who looked very frustrated and unhappy, was seen in front of the diary room demanding that Biggie opens the door just incase Nini is stuck inside.

Interrogation of suspects involved in the attempted coup was due to begin and the military would issue a statement shortly, spokesman Mohamed al-Faki Suleiman said.

Sudan has been on a fragile path to democratic rule since the military’s ouster of the country’s longtime ruler Omar al-Bashir in April 2019, following four months of mass protests.

The country is now ruled by a joint civilian and military government that faces towering economic and security challenges.
