French president Emmanuel Macron was slapped by a woman in a viral video.
In the viral video seen on Twitter on Monday, the woman slapped Mr Macron before she was overpowered by the president’s guard.
Dressed in a white shirt and a pair of black trousers with a nose mask, Mr Macron was shielded from more assault from his assailant by security guards.
In two years, Mr Macron has been subjected to assault twice in the public in an humiliating manner by enraged citizens.
In June 2021, an enraged man had slapped Mr Macron in the public, eliciting global uproar. The man was tried and later sentenced for assaulting the French president.

Give Financial Autonomy To Local Govt, Gbenga Daniel Tells Governors
A former Ogun State Governor, Gbenga Daniel, has told governors to give financial autonomy to local governments in their states, saying that is the only way to develop the rural communities.
Daniel said this in corroborating a claim by President Muhammadu Buhari that governors were stealing funds meant for the local governments from the federal allocation.
Buhari had on Thursday alleged that, “the money from the federal government to state governments, let’s put it at N100 million. N50 million will be sent to the chairman with a letter that he will sign that he received N100 million.”
It appears the comment from Buhari did not go down well with the 36 state governors, as the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, challenged Buhari to name the state governors who diverted local government allocations.
Speaking at his ward-to-ward campaign tour to Ijebu North Local Government Area of the state, Daniel pleaded with state governors to always release allocations meant for local governments in order to enhance development at the grassroots.
The former Governor charged the state executives to “stop inhibiting development at the grassroots through their penchant for non-remittance of allocations to local governments.”
He noted that most of the challenges being encountered at the grassroots were due to lack of financial autonomy.
Daniel, who is contesting for the Ogun East senatorial seat under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), promised that once elected into the National Assembly, he would join the fight to grant financial autonomy to the local councils.
According to him, the dividends of democracy would not get to the rural dwellers without a functioning and well empowered local government.
“Part of what I’m going to fight for is to push the Federal Government to pay more attention to the local government,” saying Ijebu North is one of the most populous and important local governments in Ogun East.
As he went round the 11 wards in Ijebu North, Daniel warned the politicians to desist from what he called “do-or-die politics,”

Alleged Defamation: Aisha Buhari Withdraws Case Against Student Critic Aminu
Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari, has withdrawn the case against Aminu Adamu Mohammed, a final year student of Jigawa state Federal University, Dutse.
The prosecution counsel, Fidelis Ogbobe, on Friday, said following the intervention of well-meaning Nigerians, the First Lady, as the mother of the nation, decided to withdraw the case.
Ogbode relied on Section 108 subsection 2(a) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act to move the application for the withdrawal of the case.
Justice Halilu Yusuf of the FCT High Court, ruling on the matter, commended the First Lady for taking the “bold steps” to forgive the accused.
While issuing the release warrant of Aminu, justice Halilu called on parents to monitor their children to avoid recurrence.
Aminu, who was reportedly subjected to torture and other ill-treatment, had faced charges of defamation of the character of Nigeria’s first lady.
The student was remanded at Niger State Correctional centre in Suleja for tweeting that the First Lady was feeding fat on the poor people’s money.

Alleged Misconduct: 15 High Court Judges To Face NJC Probe Panels
The National Judicial Council (NJC) has set up Probe Panels to investigate alleged gross misconduct allegations brought against 15 Judges of the federal and state high courts.
The probe panels are to determine the culpability of the Judges in the various petitions filed against them by individuals and corporate bodies.
This was disclosed in a statement on Friday by the NJC Director of Information, Mister Soji Oye, saying that the decision to investigate the alleged erring judges was taken at the Council’s 99th meeting presided over by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola.
He stated that the decision is sequel to the submission of recommendations of three Preliminary Complaint Assessment Committees which considered 66 petitions forwarded to them by the Council from all over the Federation.
However, the NJC spokesman did not name the judges to be probed, their divisions, and the specific nature of their alleged offences.
He noted that the Council dismissed petitions against 51 Judicial Officers of the federal and state high courts for either lack of merit, being subjudice, or being matters for an appeal or that the concerned Judge have retired from service.
According to Oye, the Council was formally presented with the reviewed Judicial Information Technology Policy which established the general requirements and responsibilities for the Nigerian judiciary systems and information.
