Persons suspected to the members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday attacked the home of Bayelsa State governor-elect Duoye Diri, destroying several properties.

The attack on the home located in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, came after the Supreme Court sacked David Lyon as the governor-elect and ordered that Douye of the People’s Democratic Party, be declared as authentic winner of the November 16, 2019 governorship election in the state on Thursday, February 13.

The court said Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, who was Lyon’s running mate in the election, forged the certificate he presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Vehicles at Diri’s home at Imgbi Road, Amarata, Yenagoa, were destroyed with stones and hard substances.

His building according to Punch was not spared either. The window classes as seen in the photo were destroyed.

On the other hand, thousands of women took to the streets blocking major roads to protest the judgement insisting that no handover of power would be conducted in the state without Lyon.

An entire Spanish family including eleven children have contracted the Coronavirus.

The Cebrian Gervas family from Valladolid in north-west Spain have all been forced to go under strict isolation in their home after every single one of them was diagnosed with the virus.

Mother, Irene Gervas was the first family to test positive for COVID-19, before her husband, Jose Maria Cebrian and their eleven children, Carmen (15), Fernando (14), Luiz (12), Juan Pablo (11), twins Miguel and Manuel (10), Alvaro (8), Irene (5), Alicia (4), Helena (3), and Jose Maria (1) were all diagnosed with the disease.

Father Jose Maria Cebrian told local media: ‘The children fell one by one. Some of them got over it better and some of them a bit worse. As the virus takes five or six days to show up when you feel bad you start to recall and then you think ‘ok!”

‘In our case, they (the children) are sick one day, they have a headache, they vomit and after vomiting, they feel better. The day after they don’t even remember.’

Since testing positive on March 14, the family is under a strict lockdown as they could infect others due to the high number of family members under the same roof.

Cebrian added: ‘The doctor told us that we will have to stay at least two more weeks on an absolute lockdown because of the viral load that we have. If we go out and take it out we could start a source in Valladolid.

According to him, their son is only allowed to go out to the pharmacy so long as he wears a face mask and gloves.

Cebrian also said: ‘He is the only one who goes out a bit. I take out the rubbish and he is the messenger. When we get our groceries delivered they leave it in the garage and my son goes down to pick it up.

The children are reportedly being home schooled using laptops, tablets and mobile phones.

Jose Maria said: ‘It is important they do not have the feeling that this is chaos, so they have classes from Monday to Friday.’

The country has recorded more than 117,000 coronavirus cases and nearly 11,000 deaths.

He said this while speaking at a News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) forum in Abuja to give an update on the activities of the presidential task force on COVID-19.

According to NAN, the minister commended Nigerians for complying with the federal government’s stay-at-home directive, adding that it would boost the efforts of stakeholders in the fight to curb the spread of coronavirus.

“Coronavirus is very dangerous and contagious; there is no medicine for it yet and it is not just capable of killing, overwhelming healthcare system, it will destroy the economy.
