    Police in Uganda have forcibly entered the offices of a semi-independent newspaper to search for evidence against an army general who questioned the president's alleged plan to have his son succeed him. The raid comes amid a heated public debate about a letter sent by General David Sejusa to the Internal Security Organisation asking for a probe into reports that there were plans to assassinate officers opposed to President Yoweri Museveni's son succeeding him.

    About 120 militant Islamists have been arrested in Nigeria's north-eastern city of Maiduguri, as they were organising the burial of a commander. The military has also recaptured five areas from the militants.

    Four people died and 30 others were injured Sunday in a stampede in a popular church in Ghana, caused by an offer of free anointing water. Thousands of worshippers hoping for water that they believe can cure illnesses gathered at the Nigerian prophet T B Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations in the capital Accra, when people in the back began pushing to get to the altar. “In trying to get it, a stampede happened,” said police spokesman Freeman Tetty. “Four are confirmed dead and 30 are injured, some in critical condition.”
