Clashes have broken out in the capital in recent weeks, where there have been demonstrations in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and among people claiming to protect statues in the city. The Metropolitan Police said they are seeking people in relation to a number of violent public order offences which occurred during demonstrations between June 3 and 13. 

Commander Bas Javid said while the vast majority of people had protested peacefully, 'a small minority have attended with the sole purpose of attacking police officers, or violently confronting other protesters'. He said almost 230 arrests have been made so far, 128 of which related to Saturday's gathering which saw far-right demonstrators clash with officers near the Palace of Westminster and Trafalgar Square. Mr Javid appealed to the public for their help to identify people. Pictured: Individuals sought in connection with the investigation into clashes in central London.

Cecil Rhodes WILL fall: Oriel College in Oxford opts to remove statue of British colonialist - less than 24 hours after latest protests through the city in wake of BLM movement

BLM: Oriel College, Oxford WILL remove Cecil Rhodes statue
The governing body of Oxford University's Oriel College says it wants to remove the controversial statue of Cecil Rhodes. Recent Black Lives Matter protests had reignited the discussion on whether the Rhodes statue should be taken down - particularly in the wake of a monument to Edward Colston being toppled and dumped in the harbour in Bristol. Oriel board members met today to discuss the future of the monument, which is one of the dozens of targets appearing on a list of statues Black Lives Matter protesters want to see taken down for links to racism and colonialism. 

They said in a statement today they want to see the Rhodes statue removed. Critics argue Rhodes paved the way for the apartheid in southern Africa, and raise the issue with his time as leader of the Cape Colony, from 1890 to 1896, when the government restricted black Africans' rights by increasing the financial criteria people required in order to vote. Demonstrators have been marching through the streets of Oxford this week as senior administrators met to discuss the future of the Rhodes sculpture. The board has now decided they want to remove the statue, along with the King Edward Street Plaque. Oriel College opened its Rhodes Building in 1911 after receiving a £100,000 from the former student, who died in 1902.

Why Tinubu Rescued Oshiomhole, But Turned His Back On Obaseki

Godwin Obaseki, the embattled governor of Edo state, had his moment not too long ago and almost brought down Adam Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives (APC).

Mr Obaseki, other APC governors, and some ministers from the South-South had put in all their political might in a plot to remove Mr Oshiomhole before the commencement of the party governorship primaries.

And, of course, that appeared to be the safest route for Mr Obaseki to easily pick the APC ticket to run for a second term as Edo governor after a once-promising relationship between him and Mr Oshiomhole became horribly sour.

Back home in his Edo State where he had served before as governor, Mr Oshiomhole had been suspended by the local chapters of the APC and thoroughly discredited in the state, obviously through the prompting of Governor Obaseki.

Time was ticking against Mr Oshiomhole.

Some old members are said to be angry at what they see as preferential treatment for Obaseki in the race for the governorship ticket.
