Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo has apologized to Nigeria after a building inside the Nigerian High Commission compound in Accra was demolished
d. President Akufo-Addo has ordered an investigation, a statement from the Nigerian government said after his call with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Armed men reportedly stormed the compound last week and destroyed buildings under construction. Two people have been arrested over the incident. They have been charged with Unlawful Entry And Causing Unlawful Damage.
A businessman who had previously claimed that he owned the land where the building was being put up had led the demolition operation, according to an article posted on the Nigerian High Commission website in Ghana.
3. Cigarette ban remains as High Court dismisses FITA case in South Africa
The controversial cigarette ban in South Africa, which has divided public opinion since lockdown was first instituted in late March, will remain in place after the North Gauteng High Court dismissed an application brought by the Fair-Trade Independent Tobacco Association (FITA) on Friday, June 26.
This was confirmed by FITA Chairperson Sinenhlanhla Mnguni, who had advocated for the unbanning of cigarettes. Mnguni had hoped that the prohibition of tobacco products would not pass the judiciary’s rationality test.
4. CDC says COVID-19 cases in the US may be 10 times higher than reported
The true number of Americans who have been infected with COVID-19 may top 20 million, according to new estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“Our best estimate right now is that for every case that’s reported, there actually are 10 other infections,” Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the CDC, said on a call with reporters Thursday.
The assessment comes from looking at blood samples across the country for the presence of antibodies to the virus. For every confirmed case of COVID-19, 10 more people had antibodies, Redfield said, referring to proteins in the blood that indicate whether a person’s immune system has previously fought off the coronavirus.
