Armed policemen on Monday took over the Kano State House of Assembly complex over alleged plan by some legislators to cause trouble in the House, reports the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

NAN correspondent who visited the Assembly at 11am on Monday reports that the armed security personnel were seen keeping vigil at the complex, preventing visitors from going into the place.



NAN gathered that the policemen were deployed to the complex earlier on Monday over alleged moves by some aggrieved members to impeach the Speaker, Alhaji Yusuf Abdullahi Ata.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer of the state police command, SP Magaji Majiya, confirmed the development, saying that the deployment was to forestall a breach of peace.

President Yoweri Museveni has ordered the refunding of 1% percent mobile money tax paid by Ugandans.

In a statement issued on a social media platform , Museveni insists that the 1 per cent tax which he ordered to be reduced to 0.5 percent last week was passed in error and he signed the bill knowing it had an error.

The mobile money tax and social media tax which triggered massive outcry were effected at the start of 2018/19 financial year.

“I signed the law with the error because we could not delay the other measures. However, parliament, when it reconvenes, will be requested to correct it. The ones whose deductions had been made on the basis of 1% should have their money reimbursed,” said Museveni.

Apart from salary earners and those who use banks, Museveni said the earnings of many other Ugandans are not known. He revealed that each day, $52 million moves around in the form of mobile money that translates into $19 billion a year.

The sentences can be appealed.

An investigation found that doctors, medical workers and intermediaries were involved in multiple incidents of illicit organ transplants and harvesting of human organs.

The probe found that the defendants exploited poor Egyptians who sold their organs.

Egypt prohibits the sale of human organs under a 2010 law but some Egyptians, driven by poverty, offer to sell theirs to make ends meet.
