Church Times on Opening of Lambeth

"THE Lambeth Conference opened this week in Canterbury on a rising tide of support for the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The final number of bishops stands at just over 650 out of a possible 880 (though an unknown number of these sees are vacant). Absentees are from the provinces of Nigeria, Uganda, and Rwanda. A number of bishops from Kenya, requested to stay away by their Archbishop, the Most Revd Benjamin Nzimbi, have made their way towards Canterbury. The Bishop of Owerri, a sole bishop from Nigeria, where all the 100 bishops have been ordered to stay away by their Archbishop, said he intended to come anyway, for unity’s sake."

Its all here -
