“I don’t want to make heaven if it’s where Oyedepo, Adeboye will go, I want to be where Fela is” – Lady Says

A Nigerian lady, Angela Nwosu, has taken to her social media page to say that she does not want to make if it is where the likes of Adeboye, Kumuyi, Oyedepo and others will go to after death.

According to her, heaven where she believes Adeboye, Kumuyi and other religious leaders will go, will be a boring place.

Read her post below.

I don’t want to make heaven!

If heaven is where Pastor Adeboye, Kumuyi, David Oyedepo and all other religious leaders and people will go to after death, then I reject it with every fibre of my being. Heaven will sure be a very boring and unbearable place to be in, full of fake people and extortionists and heartless people. I want to be where Fela is and would be happy to see Davido, Wizkid, Tekno, etc, join me there.

The thing about me is I don’t ever want to be like you. You don’t believe that you can live the way that I do. Seriously, you act like life’s a recital from the bible and once you reach the end you won’t know where the time goes. I’m living through my flows so please enjoy the show. No Jesus above tells me how to live my life, I do this for me, am not ashamed, I do not hide. I already have a God that turns me on with reckless abandon. He’s the God that I see and believe in and his name is Emeka

So Save your prayers for your mothers, I’m doing fine, the last thing on my mind is the afterlife. The time is now, I live in the moment. I only think with logic, so keep your bleeping preaching, pity and emotions. I can never be broken even if I’m lost in the ocean, I still won’t give a Bleep where I’m supposedly going, ighotago? For real, I don’t want to spend eternity with any of you. Death is the only thing promised to us at birth. Save your ‘may God have mercy on you’ for your sisters that are doing abortions, for your brothers raping kids, for small girls with big God knacking other women’s husbands, for your pastors and your village people

There’s no time to waste once you enter this World, If you ask me, there is no afterlife and when I die, I will be satisfied with who I am and what I leave behind! Udo.

I suck women’s breasts to deliver them from evil spirit – Pastor Sharp Sharp


A self-acclaimed pastor, identified as Raphael Obi, has admitted sucking the breast of women to deliver them from what he called the evil spirit tormenting them.

I suck women's breasts to deliver them from evil spirit - Pastor Sharp Sharp

The suspect, known among his disciples as Pastor Sharp Sharp, disclosed this while being interrogated by detectives at the Area M Command, Idimu.

In his confessional statement to the police, Raphael said that his brand of deliverance ministry involved sucking of women’s breasts.

The suspect, who hails from Enugu State, explained that he sucked women’s breasts to deliver them from killer diseases, including cancer. He added that after sucking thoroughly, the woman being delivered would not be affected with such diseases in future.

He claimed, “I received this call from God and I have delivered many women in the past.”

The police told City News that the self-acclaimed pastor was arrested last Thursday while performing the strange form of deliverance on the wife of a member of his church.

The incident happened in his church on Abaranje Road by Cele bus stop, Ikotun, Lagos State.

The police at Area M Command, Idimu, Alimosho local government area of Lagos State, arrested Obi for alleged gross misconduct, sucking of breasts and engaging victims in marathon sex in the guise of deliverance.

When our correspondent visited the command at the weekend, Obi was still being detained in cell over what the police said were the latest discoveries in his church and house at the weekend.

It was gathered that the police searched his house and discovered some charms he had tied on baby dolls, which they removed and brought to the police station as exhibits.

Police sources said Obi would soon be charged to court for misconduct.

Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Chike Oti, said he had not yet been briefed on the matter and promised to call back after receiving notes on the outcome of investigation.

Ozubulu killing: Catholic bishops blame security agencies for arms proliferation

  • Community leaders disagree over cause of attack

  • Police intensifies hunt for suspects


Leaders of Ozubulu Community in Ekwusigo council of Anambra yesterday differed over the cause of attacks on St Philips Catholic Church Amakwa Ozubulu where scores were killed on Sunday morning.

by-standers-after-the-shooting-at-st-philips-catholic-church-ozubulu-in-ekwusigo-local-government-area-of-anambra-state

While a section of the community attributed the killings to communal crises in the town, others said two rival groups who were strategising to produce the leadership of Ozubulu Development Union (ODU), carried the leadership tussle to the Church.

The leaders of the rival groups, who are based in South Africa, had been doing everything possible to influence members of the community in an effort to produce the President General of the union.

It was gathered that the traditional ruler of the town, Igwe Fidelis Oruche, had in the past intervened by inviting the groups to Ozubulu but no meaningful resolution had been reached.

Oruche, however, said contrary to insinuations in certain quarters, the crisis that led to the killings had nothing to do with drug deals. In a report released yesterday, the ODU Caretaker Committee condemned the attack, saying it was a taboo, shocking and devastating to the entire community and beyond.

The statement titled: “Senseless and Brutal Murder of Worshippers at St. Philips Catholic Church, Amakwa–Ozoubulu, signed by President General of Amakwa, ODU, Iykebest Malizu, the community said they were mourning their loved ones who were killed in the early morning Mass.

Chairman of the Caretaker Committee, Chukwuka Ernest, regretted the incident and wondered why such a dastardly act should happen in the house of God.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Nkiru Nwude, however said that some arrests have been made and that the suspects have offered useful information to their investigations.

Meanwhile, the Catholic Bishops of Ibadan Province have blamed the Ozubulu killings on security agencies’ failure to check arms proliferation in the country. The Bishops spoke in a communiqué signed by the Province President and Secretary, Gabriel Abegunrin and John Oyejola after the Catholic Bishops Conference meeting at Saint Kizito Pastoral Centre in Oke Gada, Ede, Osun State yesterday.

They condemned the gruesome murder of members and commiserated with the people of Anambra over the deaths. Their words: “We sympathise with the Nnewi Diocese, Reverend Hillary Okeke, members of the Diocese, the government and people of Anambra and the families directly affected by the murder on Sunday, August 6, 2017.

“We uphold the sanctity of every human life given by God and not to be taken by anyone and therefore can never denounce enough the evil of such a horrendous and callous killing of innocent worshippers in the Church during Mass.

“The bottom line is that the security situation in Nigeria remains at best, tenuous. We strongly condemn whatever may be the cause of the killings.

Those who are charged with securing human life and property in the nation must do more to protect the citizens. One must ask how the perpetrators of the Ozubulu mayhem came about such deadly weapons.”

Flood chases dead bodies away from mortuary

The management of the private facility, Toluwalase Hospital Morgue, located at Otunba Oladokun Street in the area, raised the alarm.

It said corpses in the mortuary have been evacuated by the flood.

Bolaji Oluwafemi, manager of the mortuary said the area was always flooded when ever it rains heavily.

Oluwafemi said the State Government had ignored repeated complaints from the hospital management.

He said, “There is the lingering need for proper channelization of water and the sand filling of the lowland in the area. It has paralyzed our business as everybody has moved out of their houses to live in the available dry land outside of their premises.

“We have been living outside in our cars. All the tenants and landlords are out of their houses. On Monday, a woman was searching for her daughter in the flood while others hurried out of their houses.”

Residents also confirmed that corpses were seen floating in the flood.

“We have finalized plans to to solve the flooding in Lagos” – Ambode

Ambode spoke on Monday at the Water Technology and Environmental Control (WATEC) sensitisation programme in Lagos, Guardian reports.

He said that there was even more urgent need to embark on a review and re-engineering of the canals and drainage systems in the state.

“For the past few days, the state and indeed most parts of Nigeria, have witnessed torrential rainfall which are quite unprecedented.

“We have witnessed our most prime estates flooded with water; we have seen our roads taken over by floods, and we have painfully watched how many homesteads have literally become pools.

“These indeed are trying times for any government, especially our own administration, which has determinedly pursued massive infrastructural development, to improve standards of living of our citizenry,” Ambode said.

“The flood affected many people who built their houses along the river bank; many houses have been destroyed with unconfirmed number of deaths recorded.

“Police are providing security around the scene so that hoodlums will not cart away victims’ property especially those lying outside,” he said.

He promised to furnish more details on the incident.

The National Emergency Management Agency was not also able to give details.

Lagos state government moves to review tenancy laws

The Lagos State Law Reform Commission has said that it has identified the need to review certain provisions of the existing Lagos State Tenancy Law of 2011 with a view to further ensuring fairness and reposition the law to reflect present societal values and realities.

Ambode-Working

Speaking at the stakeholders’ meeting on Tenancy Law of Lagos State organized by the Commission, the State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem said that the modernization of Lagos into a smart city made it imperative that its legislations reflect modern day realities, especially in the provision of shelter.

The Commissioner added that the proposed review of the law was also part of the ease of doing the business drive of the State government aimed at drastically reducing all bottlenecks capable of hampering commerce and other practices that negate global practices applicable in developed countries of the world.

Kazeem said that feelers from members of the public reveals that the citizens are not pleased with the present state of the law, hence the need to consider the introduction of rules of procedure to help fast-track proceedings for recovery of possession and propose time limits for the disposal of tenancy matters, among other grey areas contained in the law.

The Attorney-General stated that “like every other piece of legislation, this law requires periodic review in line with the government’s housing policies as a way of dealing with insufficient housing problem due to the fast growing population of the State.”

He reiterated that the existing Lagos Tenancy Law was a compilation of the reviewed Recovery of Premises Law Cap 118 Laws of Lagos State 2003 and the Rent Control and Recovery of Residential Premises Edict No. 6 of 1997.

The Commissioner maintained that some aspects of the law have not really been obeyed by the concerned stakeholders, noting that the section of the law on advance payment which makes it unlawful for a landlord to receive more than a year’s rent in advance is still being flouted. He also expressed the hope that the State House of Assembly would ensure speedy adoption and passage into law, the resolutions that would be inserted in the proposed bill as would be presented by the Law Reform Commission upon review of the law.

On her part, the Chairman of the Lagos State House of Assembly Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights, Public Petitions and LASIEC, Hon. (Mrs.) Funmilayo Tejuosho promised that the Assembly would ensure fairness in the passage of the review of the law through a call for public hearing to reflect the opinion of the majority.

She urged concerned stakeholders to also consider the issue of Agreement Fee charged by landlords, adding that whatever amendment that would be made to the law should be able to stand the test of time and bring comfort to all residents of the State.
