The music artist took to his account on popular photo and video sharing social network, Instagram to reveal this in a lengthy video.

The ‘One More Time’ crooner stated in the video that for the past three weeks he had been sick and he decided to keep it to himself and it was a three wells of hell for him and his family.

Then he went on to say he had COVID-19, he was tested and the result claimed he was positive, so he had to isolate himself in his house guest room.

He said apart from himself, two of his domestic staffs also tested positive and after a week his daughter tested positive too.

The doctor then advised that his daughter needed to be self isolated in her own room too. He felt bad about this and had to always video call his daughter.

He then went on to say his wife did something courageous by saying, she can’t leave her daughter all alone that she’d rather be infected too then she brought her to the master bedroom and they stayed together.

Days later, their daughter was negative and his wife, Lola was positive.

Then went on tell that the virus is very much real and that they’re all negative.

Meanwhile, some Nigerians do not believe his story as they claimed he was lying and only trying to copy Davido.

[Nigeria] Abba Kyari’s daughter in trouble.

Advertisements

Aisha Abba-Kyari is presently receiving knocks on social media following her outburst on Monday.

Aisha, who is one of the four children of the late Chief of Staff of the President, Major General Mohammadu Buhari (retd.), Abba Kyari, took to Instagram to vent her anger at what Nigerians on social media had meted out to her father even in death.

Aisha also fired at Peter Okoye’s wife, Lola Omotayo.

With the username crackeddiamond, she didn’t expect what followed suit.

From every of her post, trolls took over and must have inflicted emotional blows on the young woman.

Aisha, whose appointment at the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority in 2019 attracted much furore, had been dealt many blows than her father’s death.

Reminding her of her cosmopolitan lifestyle, which were depicted in her photos (most of which were taken abroad) many of the followers asked Aisha if she ever labored to get what she is enjoying.

Many trolls cursed the memories of the late Chief of Staff and not a few made her know that “Abba Kyari would not rest in peace as long as Nigeria’s unrest remains.”

Her father, the late Borno-born Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari, Kyari died of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on April 17 in Lagos, though he had underlying health conditions.

His death was announced by the Presidency through the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

His remains were interred on Saturday April 18, 2020 at the Gudu Cemetery in Abuja.

I was a gold digger when I met my wife – I had no wealth – Peter Okoye.


Peter Okoye, Nigerian singer better known as Mr. P, says he had nothing when he met Lola Omotayo-Okoye, his wife, adding that he was the gold digger.

The former member of P-Square, a now-defunct music group, was speaking about his relationship during a Live Instagram session, from which a clip has now gone viral.


Mr. P also advised men to always pick the woman they love and make her into what they deem. He said he wasn’t any better in looks when they both met 18 years ago but she now makes him look younger every day.

“I met my wife 18 years ago. Me? I was the gold digger. When I met her, I f**king had nothing. Men, I’m telling you. Not every women is a harlot, whore or slay mama,” Okoye said.


“Bro, you have money. Pick one, push her up and make her the way you want her to be. My wife was never perfect, don’t get me wrong.

“But, have you seen me before, I was ugly. Look at me now, I looking younger everyday. You’ll have peace of mind.”


In 2016, Mr. P had finally initiated a split from P-square after he and Paul Okoye, his twin brother, had engaged each other in heated arguments both in public and on social media.

The duo had a disagreement as regards what peter perceived as a lopsidedness in individual input of songs getting featured on their joint albums, with Paul getting a lion share of his songs selected.

He was said to have relocated from the home they both accommodated their extended family in after which a lawyer was involved to help split their fortune and joint ventures over the years.

In 2013, Peter had gotten married to Lola, his longtime girlfriend, whom he was said to have dated for seven years. He has had two kids to show for the relationship.

They were fined N100,000 naira each and sentenced to community service for 14 days.

Moments after the sentence, Paul Okoye in a live video stated that all police and journalists at the court room also flouted the same rule they were sentencing Funke Akindele and her husband for.

Paul in his words, described the police and journalists as “fools and idiots”. He also said “all of them are supposed to pay 1 million naira each and go to 10 years in jail”.

Nigerian lawyer argue why Funke Akindele, others conviction cannot stand in law.


A Nigerian lawyer has explained why Funke Akindele and JJC Skillz’s conviction for violating a lockdown order issued by the Lagos state government, cannot stand in law.

Recall that we reported earlier that the couple were handed a fine of N100,000 each and also sentenced to 14 days community service, three hours per day excluding Saturday and Sunday.

Constitutional Lawyer, Inibehe Effiong who reacted to the development pointed out the flaws in the law which aided the conviction.

He wrote;

Why The Conviction Of Funke Akindele Cannot Stand In Law


INTRODUCTION:


The trial and conviction of actress Funke Akindele and her husband is legally flawed. The fact that they pleaded guilty does not foreclose a discussion on the case because the flaws that I intend to highlight are constitutional and jurisdictional in nature. Issues of jurisdiction can be raised at any time.

I have read the following: The Charge Sheet filed by the office of the Attorney General of Lagos State against Funke and her husband; the Public Health Law Cap. P16 Vol. 9 Laws of Lagos State, 2015; and the Lagos State Infectious Disease (Emergency Prevention) Regulations 2020.

I submit that Funke Akindele and her husband (the defendants) were convicted for a non-existent offence. The charge sheet shows that the two defendants were arraigned on a one count charge for gathering with more than twenty persons contrary “to the social distancing directives of Mr. Governor of Lagos State.”


DEFENDANTS CHARGED FOR AN OFFENCE THAT IS UNKNOWN TO LAW:


The charge sheet against the defendants also state that the said social distancing directive contravened by the defendants was issued by the Governor in line with the regulations made by the Governor pursuant to the Public Health Law. In other words, the defendants were not charged under the Quarantine Act.

They were charged under Section 58 of the Public Health Law of Lagos State. For clarity, Section 58 of the Public Health Law cited in the charge sheet provides as follows:

“For any contravention of the provisions of this Law or any Regulation made under this Law for which no other penalty is provided, the offender commits an offence and is liable on conviction to a fine of One Hundred Thousand Naira (N100,000.00) or to any non-custodial sentence and if a corporate body, to a fine of Five Hundred Thousand Naira (N500,000.00).”

The defendants were convicted for gathering with more than twenty persons. The material question is: is it an offence under the Public Health Law or Infectious Disease Regulations to do so? There is no provision under the Public Health Law or Infectious Disease Regulations that makes gathering with more than twenty persons a criminal offence.

The Infectious Disease Regulations purport to give the Governor the power to issue the social distancing directive. The legal defect in the directive on gathering is that it cannot be the basis for criminal liability. A subsidiary legislation like the Infectious Disease (Emergency Prevention) Regulations 2020 derives its authority and validity from a substantive law (the principal legislation). The regulations cannot extend such authority.

Since the Quarantine Act and the Public Health Law of Lagos State specifically limit offences to contravention of regulations made by the governor, it is outright illegality to charge Funke Akindele and her husband for contravening a directive of the Governor (which is outside the regulations itself). See Din V. Attorney-General of the Federation (1988) 4 NWLR (Pt.87) 147.

An act or omission is only a crime if it is so prescribed in a written law. By virtue of Section 36 (12) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), every person is guaranteed the fundamental right not to be convicted unless the offence is defined and the penalty is prescribed in a written law. It states as follows:

“Subject as otherwise provided by this Constitution, a person shall not be convicted of a criminal offence unless that offence is defined and the penalty therefor is prescribed in a written law, and in this subsection, a written law refers to an Act of the National Assembly or a Law of a State, any subsidiary legislation or instrument under the provisions of a law.”

Let me reiterate that the Governor’s social distancing directive that restrict gathering in Lagos State which the defendants purportedly contravened is not an Act of the National Assembly, or a Law of the Lagos State House of Assembly, neither is it a subsidiary legislation or an instrument under the provisions of the law.

Therefore, by the authority of Section 36 (12) of the Constitution, and the Supreme Court decision in Aoko V. Fagbemi & Ors. (1961) 1 All NLR 400, the conviction of Funke Akindele and her husband is unconstitutional.

As I contended earlier, there is no provision in the Public Health Law of Lagos State or the Infectious Disease Regulations that makes a gathering of more than twenty persons or any gathering for that matter a criminal offence.

Regulation 8(1)(a) of the Infectious Disease (Emergency Prevention) Regulations 2020 cited in the charge sheet against the defendants provides thus:

8(1) “The Governor may –

(a) restrict or prohibit the gathering of persons in the Local Area, such as conferences, meetings, festivals, private events, religious services, public visits, and such other events, save where the written approval of the Governor is obtained for such gathering.”

The above provision does not codify any offence. It only empowers the governor to restrict or prohibit gathering. The Infectious Disease Regulations 2020 should have expressly and specifically prescribed that gathering is restricted and prohibited in Lagos State before it can be relied upon to convict a violator in line with Section 36 (12) of the Constitution.

Since neither the Public Health Law of Lagos State nor the Infectious Disease Regulations has prescribed that gathering is an offence, the purported directive of Governor Sanwo-Olu remains an advisory.

The Court of Appeal in the case of Faith Okafar V. Governor of Lagos State & Anor. (2016) LPELR-41066 (CA) made it abundantly clear that the directive or order of a governor is not a law and that violation of same cannot result in criminal liability.


COMPETING REGULATIONS AND DOCTRINE OF COVERING THE FIELD:


The Infectious Disease Regulations was made by Governor Sanwo-Olu pursuant to Section 8 of the Quarantine Act Cap. Q2 LFN 2004 and the Public Health Law of Lagos State. However, Section 8 of the Quarantine Act only empowers the governor to make such regulations where the President fails to do so.

On 30th March, 2020, President Buhari issued the COVID-19 Regulations. In his regulations, the President made specific provisions restricting movement and imposing a lockdown in Lagos State. By the constitutional doctrine of covering the field, the regulations made by Governor Sanwo-Olu went into abeyance the moment the regulations made by President Buhari came into effect. Both cannot coexist.

The doctrine of covering the field was applied in the case of Attorney General of Ogun State V. Attorney General of the Federation (1982) 1-2 S.C. (Reprint) 7. where the Supreme Court per Fatayi-Williams, JSC, declared that the Public Order Act 1979 repealed all existing State laws on public order.


THE GOVERNOR HAS NO POWER TO MAKE REGULATIONS UNDER THE PUBLIC HEALTH LAW:


It should be further noted that under Section 53 of the Lagos State Public Health Law, the power to make regulations pursuant to that law is expressly vested in the Commissioner for Health; not in the governor. This raises more serious legal questions on the validity of the Infectious Disease Regulations issued by the governor.


REGULATIONS REQUIRES THE APPROVAL OF THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY.


Section 1 (1) of the Regulations Approval Law Chapter R4 Laws of Lagos State 2015 unequivocally provides as follows:

“Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in any Law in the State, no regulation shall have effect unless laid before and approved by the House of Assembly.”

Section 3 of the Regulations Approval Law further mandate that “all regulations made pursuant to the provisions of any enactment in the State shall be published in the Official Gazette after its approval by the House of Assembly.”

The inescapable consequence of the above condition stipulated in Section 1 (1) of the Regulations Approval Law is that the Infectious Disease (Emergency Prevention) Regulations 2020 issued by Governor Sanwo-Olu to tackle coronavirus pandemic has not taken effect since it is yet to be laid before and approved by the Lagos State House of Assembly.

Since the charge against the defendants was brought under a regulation that has not been approved by the House of Assembly as required by law, the entire case – from the charge sheet, to arraignment, conviction and sentencing of Funke and her husband, is a nullity.

We cannot put something on nothing. This singular point is enough to nullify the conviction.


PUNISHMENT IMPOSED EXCEEDS THE LAW:


Apart from the above legal flaws, the punishment imposed on the defendants by the trial court is clearly overreaching and illegal. Section 58 of the Public Health Law of Lagos State under which Funke Akindele and her husband were convicted provides for only two forms of punishment. It provides as follows:

“For any contravention of the provisions of this Law or any Regulation made under this Law for which no other penalty is provided, the offender commits an offence and is liable on conviction to a fine of One Hundred Thousand Naira (N100,000.00) or to any non-custodial sentence and if a corporate body, to a fine of Five Hundred Thousand Naira (N500,000.00).”

The trial court sentenced Funke Akindele and her husband to 14 days community service each, to start from 9.00am to 12 noon each day during which they are to sensitize the public on the COVID-19 pandemic in ten major areas of the state. They are also to pay a fine of N100, 000 each after which they would observe the period for isolation.

The implication of the expression “OR” as used in Section 58 of the Public Health Law is that the court can either impose a fine or a non-custodial sentence; the trial court cannot impose both.

The 14 days community service cum public enlightenment and the self-isolation imposed on Funke Akindele and her husband can be regarded as a non-custodial sentence. It was wrong for the trial court to additionally impose a fine of One Hundred Thousand Naira (N100, 000.00) on each of the defendants.
