Tens of thousands flee Paris on eve of lockdown: Gridlock for miles, stations are packed and shelves are stripped ahead of month-long coronavirus restrictions that will see travel between regions BANNED

 

Tens of thousands of Parisians last night caused massive traffic jams in a desperate attempt to flee the French capital ahead of the start of Emmanuel Macron's new national shutdown. 

Video posted to Twitter shows huge numbers of Parisians attempting a mass exodus out of the mega-city in a bid to avoid the 9pm curfew and the start of the second lockdown from midnight.

The night air was filled with the sound of blaring car horns while social media users estimated that Parisians had created 'hundreds of miles' of gridlock to escape to their second homes in the country. 

Revellers also seized the opportunity to spend one last night with friends and family last night before bars and restaurants are closed as the French government plunges the country back into lockdown.

Brahim Aoussaoui, a 21-year-old Tunisian who arrived in Europe on a migrant boat just last month, attacked worshippers with a 12-inch blade in the Notre Dame basilica in Nice, slitting the throat of an elderly woman near the church's holy water in a beheading attempt. He hacked sacristan Vincent Loques, a 54-year-old father-of-two, to death as he prepared for the first Mass of the day, while a mother in her forties also succumbed to her injuries after seeking refuge in a nearby bar after telling paramedics: 'Tell my children that I love them'. 

The assailant was shot 14 times and wounded by armed police as he screamed 'God is greatest' in Arabic during the attack and 'while under medication' as he was taken to hospital, Nice's Mayor Christian Estrosi said. Investigators found two unused knives, a Koran and two mobile phones, in addition to a bag with some personal effects. He was unknown to French security services. Mourners attended a vigil outside the basilica and the French Embassy in Berlin (bottom left) to pay tribute to the victims of the triple killing. The attack comes amid fury across the Islamic world at President Macron for defending satirical cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, and on the day that Sunni Muslims mark the Prophet's birthday.

Number of Britons hospitalised with coronavirus soars 25% in a DAY as Britain records 14,542 new cases and 76 more deaths

 

The number of Britons in the hospital with coronavirus (pictured: A graph showing the data) has soared by 25 per cent in a day, new data has today revealed, as figures show the UK has recorded 14,542 more infections - more than triple the number from a fortnight ago. In another blow to hopes the virus is being brought under control, official NHS data shows there were 478 new hospital admissions in England on Sunday - the most recent day figures are available for. 

The figure is 25 per cent increase on Saturday's data when 386 people were admitted to the hospital with Covid-19. It also represents a four-month high, the likes of which have not been seen since June 3, when the figure was 491. The latest surging stats come as coronavirus cases continue to rise in the UK, with 14,542 new cases recorded today - meaning the number of people testing positive for Covid-19 every day has tripled in a fortnight. Last Tuesday's data, which would normally be used to measure how much the UK's outbreak has grown in the last week, is unreliable due to a catastrophic counting error at Public Health England. It means Tuesday September 22 is the most recent point of reference - there were just 4,926 cases on that date

Obaseki’s Edo Victory: Tinubu Failed To Learn From History

 


The September 19 gubernatorial election in Edo State has come and gone, won and lost, according to the results declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The win is as exciting to the winners as the loss is heart-wrenching to the losers.

The winner of the Edo gubernatorial tussle, Godwin Obaseki, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), garnered 307,955 votes to defeat his main challenger, Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who garnered 223,619 votes.

Mr Obaseki had defected to the PDP from the APC when he was disqualified from participating in the APC governorship primary election over alleged irregularities in his academic qualifications. Many saw his disqualification as high-handed, wondering why the party that gave him the platform to contest in 2016 would deny him the same platform barely four years later.

Oba Of Benin To Obaseki: You Won't Be In Power Forever

 

The Oba of Benin, Ewuare II has called on the Edo state Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki to look beyond his office and employ foresight in his actions as his tenure was only ephemeral.

“It will be good to look beyond your office because you are not going to be there all the time,” Oba told Obaseki

“You see the elder statesman there, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun? He was once a governor too. He’s not there now. So, everybody knows that it is transient.

“Look at how one day when you are no longer the governor everyone can sit and still give you respect. More respect even.”
