JUST IN: Anambra Governor Sacks Security Aide Accused Of Killings As SARS Boss

Published

on

The Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has sacked his security aide, James Nwafor following allegations by protesters on Thursday.

Protesters had gathered in Awka where the Governor addressed them. Before his address, protesters said Nwafor, who is a Senior Special Adviser to the Governor on security, violated people’s right when he served as the Commander of SARS in Anambra.

The protesters had blocked the Anambra State Government House and the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, insisting that Obiano must address them.

Addressing the protesters, Obiano said he would take their demands to the President Muhammadu Buhari and handle the ones within his powers.

He said, “I am very happy with the way you have conducted yourselves. You have conducted yourselves creditably.

“I have a list of all your demands. Some of them have already been met, like the SARS being disbanded. That has already been met, and some are still in the pipeline which I am going to present to the president. The other ones, I can handle myself.

“Your first request is immediate prosecution and removal of James Nwafor, the immediate release of all protesters in police custody. Consider those ones done.

As for compensation of family of SARS victims, the Attorney General and the leadership of police will look into this and make recommendations to me.

“I support your protest, police brutality and extortion are not allowed anywhere. Any police officer that does that, copy his name and let us know.”

Pastor Bakare In Financial Trouble Because He Tore Bishop Oyedepo’s Book On TV – Biodun Fatoyinbo

Published

The senior pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, has urged his church members to always put God first.

Fatoyinbo, during a recent sermon, said that honouring God and putting him first is the surest way to exponential wealth. He urged his listeners to always pay their tithes and “first fruits”.

The preacher also had words for the Citadel Global Community Church (CGCC) general overseer, Pastor Tunde Bakare, over the bank loans he took to build his Lagos megachurch.

Fatoyinbo said that Bakare’s act of tearing Bishop David Oyedepo’s book could be the reason the CGCC pastor is in financial trouble over his megachurch project.

Bakare, many years ago, tore the book after, according to him, he read a portion in which Oyedepo called anointing oil “God’s life in a bottle”. Bakare was of the opinion that the claim was heretic and occultic.

But Fatoyinbo suggested that because the book was dealing with the topic of prosperity, tearing it may have taken Bakare far from financial stability.

“Someone tore Bishop Oyedepo’s books on prosperity and others on live TV. According to the news, he is now having issues because of N10 billion,” Fatoyinbo said without mentioning Bakare’s name.

I heard somebody is in trouble for N10 billion.

“Don’t let anybody deceive you. The church that they (Oyedepo’s church) are building, they already paid N100 billion cash for their building.

“They didn’t raise a dime. N100 Billion cash! And that’s not completion of the building. By the time they are finished with it, it has not been done on earth. Everybody is struggling to work there because it will be on their CV. It has not been done on earth. Anywhere. America. Anywhere. It has not been done on earth.

“Guys, I’m telling you there is a dimension we need to plunge into and I’m trusting God for sons to believe it.

“We are not teaching you what we are not doing, we are not following cunningly devised fables. It’s possible some people have taken advantage of Christians, but this is the truth,”
he said.

President Muhammadu Buhari, mourned the death of the former head of the Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan.

President Buhari was accompanied to the Lugard Avenue, Ikoyi’s residence of the late Shonekan by Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his Ogun and Yobe State counterparts, Prince Dapo Abiodun and Mai Mala Buni.

Buhari, who was on a one-day presidential visit to Ogun State to commission some projects by Governor Dapo Abiodun administration, stopped in Lagos on his way to Abuja and spent some time to commiserate with the late Shonekan’s family.

He sympathised with the family over the demise of the former Head of the Interim National Government, who died in Lagos on Tuesday at the age of 85.

Shonekan was at the helm of affairs in Nigeria between August 26 and November 17, 1993 after General Babangida stepped aside as military president.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, in a condolence message issued on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, described the late Shonekan, as a renowned technocrat, seasoned administrator and passionate leader who served his country meritoriously as a public servant during his short tenure as Number One Citizen in Nigeria.

He said the late elder statesman did his best for the country in contributing to the growth and development of Nigeria.

The Governor also praised Shonekan’s contribution to the economy of Nigeria as boardroom guru and employer of labour, especially during his tenure as the Chairman and Managing Director of the United Africa Company.
