Police search Thames for body of chemical attack suspect Abdul Ezedi

Police have begun searching an area of the River Thames for the body of the Clapham chemical attack suspect. Abdul Ezedi is believed to be dead after going into the Thames after he was seen on CCTV leaning over the railings of Chelsea Bridge in west London on the night a woman and two girls was attacked with a corrosive substance, the Metropolitan police said. A police boat was circling between Vauxhall and Chelsea bridges on Saturday morning. Officers have been looking for the 35-year-old since 31 January, when he is suspected of using a strong alkaline substance in an attack on a mother and her daughters, aged three and eight. The mother, 31, is still in hospital in an induced coma. Nick Aldworth, a former senior police officer, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “One of the things that the marine police will understand intimately is how the river works. They’ll understand how the tides come in and out. They’ll have a really good understanding of where a body may appear if it goes in at any particular point along its length. “They will be focusing their searching along there to start with and then they may, depending on resources, expand that search. “One of the most important things is they are making people aware of that possibility so that the many hundreds, if not thousands, of river users will be mindful of that and hopefully report anything they see.” He said he thought it was very likely that Ezedi’s body would be discovered “if that is where it is”, given the modern technology available to officers. “The Met can bring in anything it needs to, we saw that during the Olympics with borrowing resources from both commerce and military if necessary,” he said. “Typically, you can scan rivers using sonar. They will also possibly use one of the police national air service helicopters to go along the length of the river to speed things along.” Ezedi had been in a relationship with the woman he attacked, its breakup being a possible motive for his actions, police said. A search to find him has been ongoing for more than a week, with officers raiding two addresses linked to him in Newcastle in the early hours of Thursday. Ezedi came to the UK hidden in a lorry in 2016, and was turned down twice for asylum before successfully appealing against the Home Office rejection by claiming he had converted to Christianity. He was convicted of two sexual offences in 2018, but was allowed to stay in the UK because his crimes were not serious enough to meet the threshold for deportation. Caroline Nokes, the Tory chair of the women and equalities committee, told the Today programme she welcomed the home secretary’s internal review into the case. Asked what support the victims could expect to receive she said: “There is always the criminal injuries compensation scheme. I’ve had a quick look at that and it does look as if there will be financial support available, but equally there will be counselling and trauma support. What they have been through has been absolutely horrific.”

Kogi Group Writes UN, EU, US, Others Over Alleged Harassment Of Ex-Gov Bello

Some indigenes of Kogi State under the aegis of Kogi In Diaspora Association (KIDA), an umbrella group for Kogi citizens worldwide, have dragged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to international community demanding a stop to what they called “baseless harassment of the immediate-past Governor of Kogi state, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.” A theoretical letter dated February 9, 2024, signed by the Co-Convener, Kogi In Diaspora Association, Hon. Seyi Olorunsola, was addressed to the United Nations Mission in Nigeria, the European Union Office in Nigeria, the Embassy of the United States of America, Abuja, the British High Commission, Abuja, the Canadian Embassy, Abuja, the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Embassy of the French Republic and the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China.” The open letter made available to newsmen Saturday in Abuja urged the diplomatic offices, representing the international community and international institutions, to use their influential channels to address the matter urgently. According to the letter, in the past few days, former Governor Bello has faced a barrage of attacks from the EFCC, accusing him of an alleged N80 billion fraud committed four months before assuming office in 2015. It reads: “I write to you as the Co-Convener of the Kogi In Diaspora Association, an umbrella group for Kogi citizens worldwide. Our organization is deeply concerned about the escalating threat to the fundamental rights of Nigerian citizens, particularly exemplified by the recent actions of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The specific case at hand involves the unwarranted and baseless harassment of the immediate past Governor of Kogi State, H.E. Alhaji Yahaya Bello. “We find it incredulous that a person without access to the levers of governance authority could misappropriate such a substantial sum. Moreover, the EFCC’s claim in 2021, alleging Governor Bello laundered N20 billion of Kogi funds in a specific commercial bank, was refuted by the bank, and the case subsequently faded away. “These sensational media trials not only tarnish the reputation of individuals like Governor Bello but also raise serious concerns about the misuse of power by the EFCC. It is disheartening to witness the agency engaging in a pattern of witch hunting without concrete evidence, undermining the principles of justice and fairness. “We implore your esteemed diplomatic offices, representing the international community and international institutions, to use your influential channels to address this matter urgently. The abuse of power by the EFCC poses a significant threat to the freedom and rights of Nigerian citizens. We believe that your intervention can play a pivotal role in preventing further unjust harassment and ensuring due process for those targeted. “As advocates for justice and human rights, we kindly request that you engage with the Nigerian authorities, emphasizing the importance of upholding the rule of law and preventing any actions that violate the fundamental rights of citizens. Together, we can work towards fostering a fair and just society in Nigeria.”

Egypt has been playing pivotal role since conflict started in Gaza – US Department of State

Cairo exerts great efforts to deliver humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people, he said, noting that the Unites States coordinates with several countries, particularly Egypt, to discuss the release of hostages and prevent expanding the conflict in the region. Werberg called on Israel to take strict, punitive measures against Israeli settlers who practice violence against innocent Palestinians in the West Bank.

Egypt keeps in touch with all parties to keep delivering aid to Gaza – Official

Egypt has ongoing contact with all relevant parties to guarantee the delivery of humanitarian aid to Gazans, former assistant foreign minister Hussein Haridy said. He told MENA on Saturday that Egypt has never closed Rafah crossing since the Israeli war against Gaza started, noting that Cairo welcomed the evacuation of foreign nationals through the border crossing and voiced its desire to deliver relief aid into the enclave at the same time. He explained that the occupation forces are mainly responsible for the delay of aid delivery into the Gaza Strip due to useless search processes and repeated bombing of the other side of the border crossing. Egypt keeps in touch with all regional, international and the United Nations parties to cease fire in Gaza and recognize the Palestinian state, he added.

Dover farmer protests organiser says action could escalate

The organiser of a protest which brought more than 30 tractors to Dover on Friday night says further action “cannot be ruled out”. Jeff Gibson told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that widespread anger felt by UK farmers meant it could “very easily escalate”. He said trade deals agreed since Brexit had created an “utterly soul-destroying” situation. The government said it was looking at how to improve supply chain fairness. It said agriculture had been at the “forefront” of negotiated deals since the UK left the EU and its £2.4bn annual farming budget was providing support to the industry. Mr Gibson, from Yew Tree Farm in Wingham, Kent, said: “It seems harder to export goods out of the UK but importing goods in does not seem to have changed. “What is making foreign food cheaper is lower levels of production costs and sustainability.” He said protests by farmers in Europe had “shown us what can be accomplished and hopefully the government start taking notice”. Mr Gibson said: “UK farmers are good at talking in the pubs and keeping quiet and complaining about how bad things are but we don’t take action like European farmers. “It has now got to a point where voices need to be heard.” Police said Jubilee Way had been cleared by 20:00 GMT, three hours after the protest began. A spokesperson for the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs said: “We firmly back our farmers. “British farming is at the heart of British trade, and we put agriculture at the forefront of any deals we negotiate, prioritising new export opportunities and protecting UK food standards. “We are looking at ways to improve fairness and support British farmers and growers, as well as ensuring customers have access to high-quality fresh British products.” Follow BBC South East on Facebook, on X, and on Instagram.
