Nigerians blast Oby Ezekwesili over Chibok girls scam

Oby Ezekwesili


Oby Ezekwesili, convener of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) has come under fire from a section of Nigerians who accuse her of championing a course that is a ruse.

She has been accused of championing a course that is a fraud.

The attack on Ezekwesili is sequel to reports that parents of the missing Chibok girls refused to take part in the BBOG group match to Aso Rock on Monday, August 22.

According to the leader of the missing girls parents, Yakubu Nkeki, who lives in Chibok, the parents of the abducted girls held a meeting in Chibok last week and decided that they would not attend the match.

Nkeki explained that the parents came to the decision because they did not want to provoke the government which is in the best position to help them find their missing daughters.

However, some Nigerians have interpreted the decision of the parents of the missing Chibok girls to boycott the match to Aso Rock on Monday, August 22, as an indication that the Chibok girls kidnap saga is a scam.

They called on the organisers of the BBOG group and the parents to immediately tender an apology for using the BBOG tag to ruin the Jonathan administration.

See reactions derived from Naij.com news portal below:

Ogboche Moru Edor: “This is one of the reasons why people are always asking if they are truly missing. This government during their campaign including chibok parents put GEJ under more pressure and did not care about his happiness why must this be different? The parents and the organisers should simply apologise and tell us it was a scam.”

Joseph Alaekwe: “Oby Ezekwesili how market? Foolish woman who doesn’t know that chibok girls issue is a scam. You must find them because you said gej didn’t do anything so you must go back to them and find the girls.”

Iyke Henry: “When will Ezekwesili buy knowledge for herself on this chibok girls scam story,there is nothing like missing girls believe it or not is a scam and boko haram is part of buhari creature all bcos he want power.”

Onyedikachi Moses Okoronkwo: “Ezekwesili would learn a lesson from these betrayal & hypocritical behavior by those she’s been spending her resources for. No one who accused Jonathan’s administration on selfish ground that will not receive his/her reward. Ezekwesili continue till they accused you of knowing the whereabouts of the alleged missing Chibok girls.”

Obyno Kenny: “Nobody is missing.Oby they have used u to get they mission.Chibok girls is fraud.They use u to rubbish Goodluck government.And now,parents of the so called chibok girls fraud.Buhari and his people has used u and dumped u.Learn from ur mistake.”

Kingsley Ejiofor: “She ain’t seen nothing, she is totally disappointed.
Again Buhari should not forget that IGBO proverb says”when a dog gets hunger it bites the owner.”

Peres Keme: “I keep submitting that Chibok girls issue is a scam from Northerners & Oby Okwasili group to unseat Ex-President GEJ now it’s becoming so glaring now. That’s serve’s Oby Okwasili right…Nonetity.”

Sati Daniel: “Imagine the statements of those parents. So they are afraid of putting pressure on the Federal Government because they don’t want to annoy Buhari, but supported the BBOG campaign during GEJ. Anyway I don’t blame them; I doubt if really their daughters are missing, and if at all their daughters are missing, no body should be worried on how to bring them back. For Ezekwesili, I think she has not yet seen anything. Time shall tell.”

Simeon Ezehchika: “There is nothing like missing chibok girls, all is a scam to collect power. But now we are all facing it, because the devil you know is far better than the angels that you don’t know.”

Obuka Nonso: “Madam Oby, you can organise and lead a protest for enhanced salary payment for Nigerian civil servants. That will help your political resurrection and relevance. Chibok girls seems to be a cheap scam.”

Ifechukwu Victor Ifechukwu: “Little did she know that chibok was a scam and the required objective has been achieved. ….. Madam power has gone back to the North pls come back home.”

Kevin Ifeanyi C-kon Francis: “I dey laugh in spanish.ezekwesili have made herseld a fool.never trust an hausa fulani person when it comes to issues thar concerns them.”

Kcee Onyeazor: “Madam Oby, you ain’t seeing nothing yet. You’re now receiving insults from the people you are better than, that will make you feel very little. Next time you do your calculations very well.”

Joy Amarachi Azubuike Uzoho: “Good for her. When u join forces and fight ur own brother, the consequences of what u did are lining up. Life is turn by turn. Betrayer, u were expecting appointment, wht u got was disappointment.”

Chinonso Chinwuko: “Ooh, so u people no dat chibok misisng girls is political propaganda. hmn unah wil folow goverment to ralize ur girls them put 4 under ground,GOD are watching.”

Ken Ikeobasi Oduka: “Madam Oby Ezekwesili use ur brain O! Before dis pple betray u. U know say u be Igbo woman. Ur co BBOG chairman is now NPA head. U might be left alone! Be very careful.”

Ofure Ehizibue: “From the onset, l have known dat this Chibok girls thing is a scam, now that they have successfully used mrs Oby Ezekwesili to discredit Jonathan’s govt, they are saying now that they don’t want to anger d president. If l m not mistaken, this whole Chibok drama was arranged by this present administration.”

Maureen Ezenwa: “I thought they said they have rescued one of d girls? Can’t d girl giv dem a lead.The girl’s statement is also a confirmation dat d whole thing is a scam .A lost but found person crying dat she wants to go bac to her BH hubby or be given a sewing machine to put her life bac.if truly she was lost but found she would hav ben a celeb, a world figure.”

Oshigbo Benneth: “Chinedu De fowl yash don dey open small small. Dis is really one of d reasons to believe dat Chibok issue is a scam,but the ignoramus dem will do anything to bring GEJ down and de have succeeded. Arrant nonsense!”

In a related development, Oby Ezekwesili has slammed presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu over his ‘indecorous and rumour- inspired verbal assault’ on her on Sunday, August 21.

In a statement issued by Ezekwesili on Monday, August 22, the former World Bank vice president lashed out at Shehu for not getting his facts right before speaking and for wasting his time insulting her instead of addressing more pressing matters.

Olympic flag arrives Japan from Brazil

Olympic 2020

Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike brought the Olympic flag to Japan from Brazil on Wednesday and called for all parties to work together to host a successful Summer Games in 2020.

Koike, who was elected last month after two predecessors stepped down over scandals that clouded the city’s Games preparations, was given the flag at the Rio Games closing ceremony on Sunday.

“Let’s work together with everyone to hold a great Olympics and Paralymics as the Olympic flag, which just arrived, is a symbol of,” she told reporters after waving the flag upon stepping off the flight at Haneda airport.

The Tokyo Games have been hit by series of issues including the scrapping of plans for the main stadium, which lead to delays in construction, and plagiarism allegations which forced organisers to ditch the original logo for the Games.

Koike was joined on the flight by Japanese athletes who took part in the Rio de Janeiro Games, where Japan won 12 gold medals – their best tally since 2004 – and a record 41 overall.

Keisuke Ushiro, who took part in the decathlon in Brazil, followed Koike off the plane waving a Japanese Olympic Committee flag.

Police uncovers graves in residence of prophet who chained 28 persons

shocking news

Police discover graves in house of prophet who chained 28 persons
The Lagos State Police Command, yesterday, uncovered shallow graves allegedly used by prophet Emmanuel Adeyemi to bury clients, who died during spiritual cleansing in his Oke-Ira, Ogba home.

Recall that Adeyemi was arrested, weekend, by policemen attached to Area ‘G’ Command, Ogba, following the discovery of 28 chained persons, among them 13 children and 15 adults.

This is just as one of those chained was discovered to be a cancer patient, contrary to claims by the suspect that they were all mentally deranged. At press time yesterday, the cancer patient (names withheld) was still undergoing treatment at the hospital from sores sustained in her two legs where she was chained, while others were at the Lagos State rehabilitation centre.

Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command, Fatai Owoseni, who made the disclosure, said: “We had another tip-off that there were people he (suspect) buried in his compound and he confirmed it during interrogation.

 “Because the area is swampy, the suspect allegedly buried some people in the swamp and about three others in the house.”

‘I am a herbalist, not prophet’ However, during interrogation, the suspect maintained that he was a herbalist, saying there was not time he identified himself as a prophet.

He said: “I am a herbalist and not a prophet. One of those chained is my step-son; I chained him and locked him inside the room because I wanted to cure him of stealing. Others are people I was treating of madness.” Asked what the shallow graves were for, he replied,

“I bury patients who died in the process of receiving treatment. Some of them were brought very sick from the hospital for treatment.

 “At times, some would be healed while others won’t make it. They were buried with the consent of their relatives.”

He further denied claims that he sold human parts to ritualists, saying “I swear, I don’t sell human parts. I am only a traditional healer.”

However, Owoseni assured that the police would get to the root of the matter.


Lawyers reacts over detaining a man who named his dog "Buhari"

- No criminal implications in naming dog after person

The incoming Second National Vice President of the Nigeria Bar Association, NBA, Mr. Monday Ubani, yesterday, said that no offence is committed by someone naming his dog after somebody else.

He said: “In the eye of the law, it is not criminal for somebody to name his or her dog after another person. It may be offensive by examining the circumstances under which the incident happened.

“I understand that a particular dog was named after a neighbour and both of them were not in good terms;  in a Hausa community somewhere in the South-West.

“So expediency would have prevailed on him not to name his dog after somebody he was quarrelling with.

“The Bible says wisdom profited for direction. Anything you are doing must be with wisdom. If such a thing would provoke unnecessary argument, you should avoid it.” Another Lagos-based lawyer, Mr. Tunji Muyedeen, said:

“As far as I am concerned, there is no way such offence could be sustained in law. Anybody can name his pet after anybody’s name.

“He can even call the pet his name. However, spurious charge or charges may be preferred against such person.

“All of us will be living witnesses to the trial of the man. We will see what evidence the prosecution has to prosecute the accused person.”

For human rights activist, Mr. Okey Nwaguna, prosecution must show that accused had the intent to cause breach of public peace. He said: “The motive of an accused is never and can never be established by the charge: it must be established by evidence.

“Prosecution must show that accused had the intent to cause a breach of public peace. What constitutes ‘public’ is key.”

Niger Delta crisis Update

JTF kills two Avengers, arrests three militants

Operation Delta Safe,the Joint Task Force in the Niger Delta Region has killed two members of the Niger Delta Avengers and arrested three others over the killing of four soldiers in Bayelsa State.

Gunmen, suspected to be militants, had on August 8, 2016 attacked and killed four soldiers stationed at a military checkpoint at the entrance of Nembe community, in Nembe Local Government Area of the state.

The gunmen, who were dressed in mourning outfit as if they were on a funeral procession, ambushed the detachment of the ODS, killed the soldiers and carted away their arms, ammunition and military gunboat.

The arrested suspects were on Tuesday paraded at the headquarters of the ODS at Igbogene, in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa.

The Commander of the outfit, Rear Admiral Joseph Okojie, said on Monday that the troops recovered a large cache of arms and ammunition, adding that a military gunboat seized from the soldiers was also recovered.

Okojie said that the search for the suspected killers led them to a hideout in a camp at Saraba Creek, near Okiama community, Okigbene in Southern Ijaw Local Government, where the soldiers located the militants and engaged them in a gun duel, leading to the death of two suspects and the arrest of three others.

According to him, among the items recovered from the suspected hoodlums include nine AK 47 rifles, an FN rifle, four HK 21 MGs, one G3 MG, three GPMGs, 20 AK 47 magazines, two G3 magazines, one FN magazine, one container of gunpowder, the gunboat seized from the murdered soldiers and military accoutrements.

Also seized during the raid, he said, were 1,145 rounds of 7.62mm metal link, 2, 485 rounds of 7.62mm ball cartons, 370 rounds of 7.62mm special ammunition and 1,356 rounds of 7.62mm NATO.

Austin Dikro, one of the suspects paraded by the ODS Commander, said the group had gone for another operation and were returning when they had the bloody encounter with the troops.

He said the waterways in the route they initially wanted to take had dried up as they were returning, making it difficult for their speedboat to float.

He said it was then that their now deceased leader ordered them to go through the military checkpoint and engage the soldiers head-on.

Dikro, who said he hailed from Brass LGA of Bayelsa State, noted that they disguised as mourners just before approaching the military blockade and opened fire on the troops.

It was learnt that the hoodlums also forced one of the surviving soldiers to operate the military gunboat that was seized from the troops, because it was too complex for their own men.

Okojie said, “The sources of acquiring illicit wealth is being degraded, hence the resort to attacking our locations. You will recall that on Monday, August 8, 2016, at about 0930hours, a group suspected to be members of the Niger Delta Avengers, disguised as mourners, attacked and  killed four of our soldiers at their duty post in Nembe.

“Three suspects were arrested and a large quantity of arms, ammunition and the gunboat that was taken from Nembe on August 8,2016 were recovered.”

He added that the troops conducted the operation professionally and avoided collateral damage, noting that the security forces would continue to sustain the approach which was in line with global best practices.

 He stressed, “Let me use this opportunity to reiterate the fact that no criminal would go free, wherever they are. Be rest assured we will get them and ensure they face justice. Let me reaffirm the commitment of the JTF, Operation Delta Safe, of its resolve to ensure peace and economic stability in the region.”

Boko haram and Nigerian Air Force

According reports from Punchng an undisclosed number of Boko Haram leaders has been killed the Nigerian Air Force during a raid on the Sambisa Forest hideout of the insurgents.

The Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman, said in a statement on Tuesday that the leader of the group, ‘Abubakar Shekau’ was seriously wounded on the shoulders during the raid.

Usman, who listed the killed Boko Haram leaders to include Abubakar Mubi, Mallam Nuhu and Mallam Hamman, amongst others, added that several others were wounded.

He said fighter pilots of the NAF carried out the raid on August 19,2016 when the insurgents were performing Friday rituals at Taye village,  Gombale general area within the Sambisa Forest, Borno State.

However, Usman was silent on whether or not the affected Boko Haram leaders were among those on the 100 most wanted list of the group released by the military.

He said, “We have just confirmed that as a result of the interdiction efforts of the Nigerian Air Force, some key leaders of the Boko Haram terrorists have been killed while others were fatally wounded.

“The air interdiction took place last week Friday,  August 19, 2016, while the terrorists were performing Friday rituals at Taye village,  Gombale general area within Sambisa forest, Borno State.

“Those Boko Haram terrorists commanders confirmed dead include Abubakar Mubi, Mallam Nuhu and Mallam Hamman, amongst others. While their leader, so called “Abubakar  Shekau,” is believed to be fatally wounded on his shoulders. Several other terrorists were also wounded.”

PRESIDENT BUHARI SHOULD PROBE OBASANJO OR FORGET ANTI-CORRUPTION FIGHT - SENATOR WAKU

BUHARI AND ANTI-CORRUPTION WAR
Senator Joseph Waku, former Chairman, Senate Committee on Water Resources,  on Tuesday in Kaduna asked President Muhammadu Buhari  to either probe former President Olusegun Obasanjo  or forget about his current war against corruption in the country.

He also predicted that without Buhari, the governing party was bound to lose the 2019 general election.

He said Nigerians would not take President Buhari’s fight against corruption seriously if Obasanjo  was left untouched by anti-graft agency, the  Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

The 4th Republic Senator said he had already told the President that Nigerians would only take his ant-corruption seriously if the likes of Obasanjo, whom he claimed introduced corruption to Nigeria, were probed.

Waku, in an interview with  journalists on the sideline at the ongoing Annual General Assembly of the Arewa Consultative Forum  on Tuesday in Kaduna,  said, “Look, I am 70 years old now and have been in this game for more than 50 years.

“Therefore, there is no way I can just look at some totality of what people are saying about corruptionand believe it as it has been reported to me. If I have an investigating mechanism, I know that this accusation is real obviously.

“I have access to authority. I have access to Mr. President. I told Mr. President that this corruption probe of past regimes, if you don’t probe Obasanjo, then you haven’t done anything yet. Corruption in Nigeria was introduced by Obasanjo.”

The APC chieftain insisted that without Buhari, the ruling party would lose the 2019 general election.

He said the party won the last election because most of the politicians on the platform of the APC rode on Buhari’s honesty to win the 2015 election, noting that the party wouldn’t have won that election in the first place.

- Good diet in pregnancy produces well-behaved kids

A RECENT RESEARCH has shown that an unhealthy diet during pregnancy could influence a child’s risk of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Researchers found that a high-fat, high-sugar diet can affect the function of a gene called IGF2 that helps steer fetal development of brain regions previously linked to ADHD.

The study was published August 18 in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry and MedlinePlus Online.

Senior researcher Edward Barker, director of the developmental psychopathology lab at King’s College London said: “These results suggest that promoting a healthy prenatal diet may ultimately lower ADHD symptoms and conduct problems in children.”

However, Barker said the study only shows an association, rather than a direct cause-and-effect. “We do not suggest that a mother’s diet will cause ADHD or conduct problems,” he said. “There are many causes of ADHD and conduct problems, and usually many small influences are at work together, diet being one of them.”

A bad diet appears to influence the way the IGF2 gene is read and interpreted by cells through a process called DNA “methylation,” Barker said. In methylation, an extra molecule is tacked onto a DNA strand.

“DNA methylation can influence how a person’s genetic make-up might affect their development, in response to risk exposures including poor nutrition,” Barker said.

Animal research has shown that what a mother eats during pregnancy can change the action of genes important for the development of the brain, but very little is known about the influence of diet during pregnancy on the human brain, he said.

To investigate this, Barker and his colleagues compared 83 British children aged seven to 13 with conduct problems against 81 relatively well-behaved children. Conduct problems often go hand in hand with ADHD, his team noted.

During pregnancy, the children’s mothers filled out a questionnaire regarding their diet.

Researchers then assessed whether the IGF2 gene in their children had experienced DNA methylation. They did this using blood samples taken either from the children’s umbilical cord at birth or from the child at age seven.

The IGF2 gene is involved in the development of the cerebellum and hippocampus, regions of the brain that have been implicated in ADHD, the researchers explained.

The researchers found that poor prenatal nutrition was associated with higher IGF2 methylation in children with conduct problems. Diets that included lots of processed foods and baked sweets particularly appeared to affect the function of IGF2, Barker said.

TOPIC: YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

Memorise: And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing. – Isaiah 10:27

Read: Deuteronomy 28:25-48 (KJV)

25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

26 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.

27 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.

28 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:

29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.

30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.

31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.

32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand.

33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:

34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.

35 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.

36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.

37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.

38 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.

39 Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them.

40 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit.

41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.

42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.

43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.

44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:

46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.

47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;

48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

Bible in One Year: Isaiah 52:1-56:8, Psalms 40:11-17

MESSAGE:
There are many people who are carrying different loads in life. There are weights, burdens and yokes that are delaying many people and stopping them from becoming what God wants them to become. When an individual is in bondage, there are limits to what he can achieve. This may mean that there is an urgent need for deliverance. God is the ultimate deliverer and I want to assure you that everything that is unpleasant in your life shall be made beautiful in Jesus’ name. There are people that appear alright, but they have long standing problems. I decree that the Almighty God will turn all of your unpleasant situations into beautiful testimonies in Jesus’ name.

“Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.” - Isaiah 60:15

There are people who have been rejected by others but in the hour of deliverance, these same people will gather people for the celebration of the greatness of God in their lives. In the hour of deliverance, wealth will begin to replace poverty in the lives of such people. When deliverance begins, there will be a full restoration of all that has been denied for so many years.

If you align yourself with the will of God this moment, God will begin to be your light. You will walk through darkness and nothing will harm you because the deliverance of God has located you. God wants to deliver you from the power and fears of those whom you cannot handle by your strength. God does not want your life as a believer to be at the mercy of sinners. The blood of Jesus is for your freedom, to deliver you from the tyranny of sin and death. If you allow God to deliver you, the yoke of sickness, poverty, stagnation, unemployment, and fruitlessness will not only be taken away, but it shall be destroyed totally. Moses told the children of Israel to look back and behold the Egyptians, because the Egyptians they were seeing that day would never be seen again in their lives. And the Almighty God sank all the Egyptians and their weapons of war into the sea at that moment. As a child of the Almighty God, you can be sure that there is no weapon formed against you spiritually, physically or administratively that will prosper.

Have you been in bondage? Have you been a victim of situations and circumstances? Are there certain precious things you desire but are outside your control? Are you weeping silently while others think you are happy? I decree once again that your hour of deliverance is here in Jesus’ name. That great man called Naaman was a leper but when his hour of deliverance arrived, he dipped himself into river Jordan seven times as instructed, and his skin was wholly replaced. No single sign of loss was found in him. It is in that same Spirit that I want you to know that your freedom has arrived. There will be a complete turnaround in a positive direction in your life in Jesus’ name.

Key Point: When God sets you free, you are free indeed.

TOPIC: WHEN GOD BLESSES

Text: 2 Chronicles 9:23-31

Key Verse: "And the king made silver in Jerusalem as stones, and cedar trees made he as the sycomore trees that are in the low plains in abundance" (2 Chronicles 9:27).

The very first person to reach the status of billionaire was a certain man who knew how to set goals and follow through. At the age of 23, he had become a millionaire, by the age of 50 a billionaire. Every decision, attitude, and relationship was tailored to create his personal power and wealth. But three years later at the age of 53, he became ill. His entire body became racked with pain and he lost all the hair on his head. In complete agony, the world's only billionaire called his attoeys, accountants, and managers and announced that he wanted to channel his assets to hospitals, research, and mission work.

On that day, John D. Rockefeller established his foundation. From passage, God was clearly the source of Solomon's wealth. His vast fortune was not a result of his hard work, goal- setting and business acumen. Right after his prayer at the high place at Gibeon and God's promise to endow him with great wisdom and riches, things turned around for the best for Solomon. The sea was propitious unto him as a constant navy of ships brought the purest of gold from distant lands. Kings and rulers from far and near brought unsolicited presents, including rare vessels of gold and silver, clothes, spices, horses and mules every year to mention a few. The territories under Israel's rule continued to increase.

When God blesses someone, he operates under an open heaven and favour from men increases. God can do it again in our present-day. He promised to pour out his blessing until there shall not be enough room to receive it. But we must learn to seek him early.

Thought for the day: Favour sets a man apart from his contemporaries.

Prophet and crime

-I Bury People In My Compound, But Don’t Sell Body Parts

A white garment church prophet has told the police that he wasn’t dealing in the sale of human body parts, contrary to a purported claim.

The prophet was also said to have admitted burying three people in his compound, which doubles as his church, and at a nearby swamp.

Prophet Emmanuel Adeyemi, 70, told the police that he was a herbalist and ran a healing home for mentally unsound people, claiming the deceased were such.

He was arrested recently, following a tip-off that he chained his son. Adeyemi admitted, but said he was trying to cure the boy of his stealing habit. A visit by detectives to Adeyemi’s residence also showed 27 others in chains.

Speaking on the matter, Fatai Owoseni, Lagos Commissioner of Police, said: “We got a tip-off that they were people he buried in that compound and he confirmed it during interrogation.

“Because the area is swampy, the suspect had allegedly buried some people in the swamp and about three others in the house.

“When we asked him of their identities he said it was some of his patients that were brought to his home from the hospital, after they were given up for dead, who finally died in his care and were buried in the swamp.

“When we also queried him on the claims that he used the body parts of the deceased to sell to ritualists, he swore that he was only a traditional healer and not a human parts seller.”

“We got another credible tip off that there were other people chained up in that same house. Of course, we carried out a raid and confirmed the allegation to be true.”, Owoseni said.

Celebrity Big Brother star Chloe Khan sure knows how to keep it cool.
But if you ask me I will say her attitude is a kind of off and should be properly examine. Don't you think so? Maybe the photos show her obsession.
As the country basks in tropical temperatures, the webcam entrepreneur stripped off to her skimpiest clothes and enjoyed sucking on an ice lolly.

Dressed in a white top with a sexy neckline plunging perilously low, Chloe just about managed to cover her assets.

Angela Blackwell,27-year-old woman  has been arrested and charged to court for murder after she allegedly locked her 4 days old newborn baby inside fridge for 3 hours in February. The child was rushed to hospital in Chester County, South Carolina, after becoming unconscious in February.


The infant of hypothermia, the Chester County coroner confirmed the case.

It took six months to charge the mother because extensive interviews with family members needed to be conducted, police said.

One neighbour, commenting on the child's death, said: "That's wrong.

"Wrong is wrong, regardless of whatever it is. It ain't supposed to be like that."

Jeff Lewis, the father of the child, said he was shocked that the mother had been charged. He also claimed that Blackwell was "a good mom" and that other people were in the house at the time.

She is set to appear in court on Tuesday.

South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division spokesman Thom Berry said: "We have authority to investigate all child deaths in the state under our child fatality unit.

"We came in and assisted Chester County. They had already begun an investigation, so we worked with them."

A CAPITAL DEMAND OF THE COVENANT - DR. PAUL ENENCHE

TOPIC: A CAPITAL DEMAND OF THE COVENANT

SCRIPTURE: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: – Genesis 12:2

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Anyone who desires to be an accumulator has no future.

What took Abraham from being a nonentity to a generational celebrity was the covenant. The mystery behind the making of other biblical patriarchs like Isaac and Jacob as well as great men in historical and contemporary times like John D. Rockefeller, J.C. Penny, Pastor E. A. Adeboye, Kenneth Hagin of blessed memory, Kenneth Copeland, Bishop David Oyedepo, etc. who marked and are still marking their generation was and still is the reality of the Blessing Covenant.

It is the covenant that guarantees the Blessing.

Now, there are demands of the Blessing covenant. One of these demands is:

Being a blessing to both God and man

This is a capital demand of the Blessing covenant (Genesis 12:2). Living as a giver, a contributor towards the Kingdom and towards humanity is a capital and non-negotiable requirement of the covenant. God blesses people not so that they can become containers, but rather so that they can become distributors.

Anyone who desires to be an accumulator has no future. Prosperity without generosity ends in calamity.

Beloved, make up your mind to be a distributor and you will experience God’s blessing immeasurably.

Remember this: anyone who desires to be an accumulator has no future.

ASSIGNMENT(S):

1. Determine to be a blessing to the people around you and to your generation.

2. Determine to be committed towards releasing your resources for Kingdom projects, evangelism, etc.

PRAYER: O LORD, I receive the grace to be faithful in my covenant walk with You. Take me to the realm of abundance, in Jesus’ Name.

Tradition—A Killer! written by Gloria Copeland

FAITH TO FAITH DEVOTIONAL

TOPIC: TRADITION - A KILLER!

KEY VERSE: Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.- Matthew 15:6

Cancer. Heart disease. Multiple sclerosis. When we think of killer diseases, those are the names that come to mind. But the truth is, there’s a far more deadly killer on the loose in the Church today. And it’s destroyed more lives than any of us can imagine. It’s called tradition. Traditions rob believers of their healing. They steal the power from the promises of God. Here are three you should beware of:

1. The tradition that says it’s not always God’s will to heal you. It is God’s will to heal you! It says so in His Word. If you don’t believe that it is, then you can’t pray in faith believing you’ll receive. You’re like the farmer who sits on his porch and says, “I believe in crops, but I’m not going to plant any seed this year. I’ll just believe, and if it’s God’s will, my crop will come up.” That farmer will never see his crop. Faith is the seed of healing—if you don’t plant it, it won’t grow. A prayer that includes the words “if it be thy will” won’t produce a healing harvest. You must know without a doubt that healing is always God’s will for you.

2. Another tradition we hear is that healing has passed away. That there are no miracles today. But the Word of God proves that’s not true. In Exodus 15:26, God says, “…I am the Lord that healeth thee.” He also tells us that He does not change (Malachi 3:6). He has never changed since the beginning of time. For healing to pass away, God would have to pass away...and He is not about to do that!

3. The third dangerous tradition is this one: “God gets glory from Christians being sick.” That tradition totally violates the Word of God. The Bible says that people gave glory to God when they saw the lame walk and the blind see. God receives glory from your healing—not your pain!

The world is looking for a way out of sickness and disease, not a way into it. Let’s break down those traditions and deliver a hurting world from the most dangerous killer of all.
