Drama As Cow Imported From US Breaks Loose At Lagos Airport

.

There was a drama at the cargo area at the international wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, when one of the 250 cows flown into the country through the airport broke loose from its crate, leaving airport workers at the tarmac running for cover.


According to information gathered, the cows which were flown in from New Jersey, United States, by the Ekiti State government in crates on a chartered cargo special flight, were being offloaded at the Gate 3 between the Skypower Aviation Handling Company (SAHCO) and the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) sheds when the incident occurred.




The bubble burst when one of the crates carrying the cows got damaged and the ground staff could not secure the cows after offloading which forced one of them to break loose and started chasing airport workers present on the tarmac.

According to Fabian Benjamin, the new feature will also guard candidates against abuse and manipulation.

UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed that it has announced a new feature in the ongoing registration for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The exam body in a statement issued on Thursday by its Head of Media and Protocol, Fabian Benjamin, said the feature, ‘Know Your Registration Officer,’ aims to fortify the registration process.

According to Benjamin, the new feature will also guard candidates against abuse and manipulation.

Benjamin further noted that candidates who are applying for the 2021 UTME, which is due to close on 15th May 2021 are advised to immediately raise an alarm the moment they find out that the picture on the screen doesn’t match the face of the person registering them.

“To further fortify the registration process and ensure that candidates know where and who is registering them for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination Board( UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) exercise, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB) has made provisions for the image of the Registration Officer to be displayed at the corner of the screen being used to register the candidate besides his biometric details that had been captured.

“Candidates registering for the 2021 UTME/DE exercise are urged to ensure that the picture shown on the corner of the screen is the same person registering them. If the picture does not match the face of the Registration Officer, candidates should immediately raise the alarm as such a person is not authorised to register them or they are in a completely unauthorised registration outlet.

“This measure is in addition to several others put in place to guide against manipulation, abuse and exploitation of candidates as well as forestalling examination malpractices.

“The Board’s innovations, including this one which comes with some little changes and additions to its processes, are to make the system better and fortified against those who are working non-stop to take advantage of the system.

“It is, therefore, required of candidates who are the major stakeholders in the process, to monitor the process as they are being registered and adhere to extant instructions, rules and regulations,”
the statement said.



We Will Not Suspend Nationwide Strike – JUSUN Tells CJN

We Will Not Suspend Nationwide Strike – JUSUN Tells CJN

The ongoing nationwide strike embarked upon by JUSUN will continue according to its officials.

Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad

The judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has insisted that it will not call off the ongoing nationwide strike.
 
JUSUN said the strike will continue until state governors meet their demands.
 
JUSUN made the assertion at a meeting with the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad.
 
The meeting held at the CJN’s chambers in Supreme Court was to give him feedback on his request for the strike to be called off.
 
The Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court, Hadjia Hadiza Uwani Mustapha also attended the meeting.
 
The CJN had, at an earlier meeting with JUSUN leaders on April 6, asked the union to call off the strike given its adverse effect on the justice system in the country.
 
But at the latest meeting, JUSUN officials, led by its Deputy National President, Emmanuel Abioye and Jimoh Musa Alonge, its Treasurer explained why it is difficult to heed the CJN’s call to end the strike.
 
Abiyoye told the CJN that the state governors must begin to demonstrate some level of seriousness by putting in place some measures precedent to the implementation of financial autonomy for the judiciary in their respective states.

‘’Though there’s financial autonomy for the judiciary already in some states while some are assuring that they would comply others have to take steps in readiness for compliance,’’ Abioye said.
 
According to Abioye, the union expects each state to start implementing its self-accounting law to deal with the Internally Generated Revenue in line with Section 121(3) of the 1999 Constitution as amended; and that states without such law should put it in place.
 
Abioye said it is his union’s position that there must be some level of seriousness from all quarters and as such, the amount standing to the credit of the judiciary from the monthly federal allocation should be deducted directly from the source by the Accountant General of the Federation and remit same to the National Judicial Council (NJC) for onward transmission to heads of courts.
 
He said, for the Federation Consolidated Account also known as Federal Allocation, the budget of each state judiciary submitted to the implementation committee on October 2, 2020, should be implemented by deducting the amount due to the state judiciary directly from the source by the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF) in line with Sections 81(3) and 162(9) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) for the states.

” In other words, the AGF should deduct from the monthly Federal Allocation and remit it to NJC for onward transmission of the fund to the Heads of Courts at the State Judiciary. Until this is done, there is no going back, the strike would go on.’’
 
However, the CJN said it has become difficult to fault the idea of the strike since the rights of the union and its members which are clearly defined in the Constitution are being denied especially at the state level.

‘’I can’t fault your reasons for embarking on this protest because the union wants its rights restored in line with the provisions of the Constitution. I commend you for following due process so far to protest against the injustice,’’ the CJN said.

The late President’s daughter and her firm are further alleged to have forged ITBAN papers to perpetuate the fraud – a matter which is already before the FCT High Court for determination.

According to SaharaReporters, Mrs. Hajia Zainab Dakingari, a daughter of the late President Umaru Yar’adua has refused to appear before a reconciliatory panel set up to look into a N2 billion land fraud which involves her company, Marumza Development Co. Ltd.

This was revealed to SaharaReporters by a reliable source on Thursday.

SaharaReporters had last year reported how Zainab, who is also the wife of ex-Kebbi Governor, Sa’idu Dakingari, was to appear as a defendant in the land scam for which she was alleged to have fraudulently taken over a 1.5 hectares of land in the Kado area belonging to ITBAN Global Resources Limited and erected buildings on the site.

The late President’s daughter and her firm are further alleged to have forged ITBAN papers to perpetuate the fraud – a matter which is already before the FCT High Court for determination.

A source familiar with the incident stated that Hajia Zainab Dakingari was found wanting when she “deliberately forged land documents belonging to ITBAN Global Resources Limited owned by Halliru Saad Malami.”

He said, “Hajia Zainab was said to have used her own company, Marumza Estate Development, and purposely forged the said documents and in return started construction at a site in Abuja belonging to the ITBAN firm.

“Although a meeting to reconcile both parties led by Senator Adamu Aliero was held at the house of the former FCT Minister in Maitama, Abuja, it ended in a deadlock as the offer presented did not suit owners of the ITBAN firm.

“The firm has filed a lawsuit against Marumza Estate Development owned by Hajia Zainab Dakingari at the Federal High Court of Justice, Maitama, Abuja. The court has already served court notice to parties involved, i.e. Marumza Estate Development Company Ltd., owned by Hajia Zainabu Umar Yar’adua, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, and the Federal Capital Development Agency, Sani Rabo, who served as a witness and master minder behind all the fraudulent activities involving Marumza Company and the Abuja Geographic Information Systems. The case hearing is said to be on Monday, May 17.”
 
It was also gathered that Zainab Dakingari-owned Marunza Company also allegedly connived with the Abuja Geographic Information System (AGIS) where they illegally registered a binding power of attorney (a week before the company was registered) without the Deed of Gift, Deed of Assignment, Power of Attorney, Sale Agreement and Valid Means of Identification.

This prompted another disclosure that the Marunza had one Sani Rabo, a former director with the connivance of Richard Adewumi (a lawyer) who together masterminded all related fraud and forgery for Marunza company. Sani Robo is believed to be appointed to such a position on the basis that Hajia Dakingari wanted to use his BVN but in 2019 after an unknown rift was removed and substituted by one Naziru Ahmad who is a home help to the family.

However, recent developments showed that the office of the Solicitor-General of the Federal Capital Territory Administration has summoned both ITBAN and Marumza for an out-of-court settlement of a dispute in respect of suit No.CV/795/2021 filed at the Federal High Court of Justice in Abuja.

A document backing the development made available to SaharaReporters stated that, “Whereas the ITBAN Global Resource Ltd was present along with its directors, the Marunza Company on the other hand is said to have failed in producing its directors, Umar Ibrahim (Managing Director) who was then seven years of age and firstborn of Zainab Yar’Adua with her first husband Alh. Ibrahim Lange as well as Mary’am Sa’idu (Director) of 1 year, who is the firstborn with her second husband, former Governor of Kebbi State Sa’idu Dakingari at the date of the registration of the firm, but were represented by 11 lawyers.

“At the meeting were Solicitor-General of the FCT, Director of Land, Director of Legal, Director of Litigation and Director of Urban Development and all their deputies.

“However, this development left many people in awe and surprise that this kind of fraud happened under the watch of the AGIS and the perpetrators went scot-free.”

Many things have been said and written about the controversial leader of the church, Prophet Odumeje, whose real name is Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere. Saturday Vanguard, therefore, visited the church that night to see things for ourselves.

Popular Nigerian prophet, Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere has opened up on himself.

***

Bida Road, Modebe Avenue, Odoakpu, Onitsha, is usually noisy and bustling during the day, but at nightfall, the place is as silent as a graveyard.

But this was not the story last Friday night, when the Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention Deliverance Ministry Onitsha, Anambra State, held its weekly vigil at the church auditorium. On that fateful night, the silence was cut by ‘signs and wonders.’

Many things have been said and written about the controversial leader of the church, Prophet Odumeje, whose real name is Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere. Saturday Vanguard, therefore, visited the church that night to see things for ourselves.

At exactly 12 midnight, we walked into the noisy auditorium, a semi-enclosed space with galleries filled to the brim. Sitting at a vantage point, we were able to get a clear view of the pulpit as well as the events that preceded the vigil. Not long after, Prophet Odumeje emerged and the auditorium erupted with excitement.

Decked in a carton colour chinos pant on a multi-coloured long sleeve shirt with his afro-hair gleaming under the sparkling lights at the altar, Odumeje, also known as the Liquid Metal, Indaboski Bahose, or the Lion himself, began to lead the prayer and worship session.

Odumeje’s ministry thrives mostly in the ‘signs and wonders he performs during his service, and the night was not different. Though he did not preach throughout the night, he made sure that the vigil was lively and replete with miracles and testimonies. He began by telling stories of how God called him in 1996 at the age of 18, while he was trading in Onitsha. Odumeje then went on to perform series of miracles that earned him a standing ovation.

During the vigil, the Indaboski” spent most of the time showing videos of some of his life-changing miracles. He made it clear to the congregation that he was neither a comedian nor a showman as being addressed on social media. But his face suddenly changed after the video of comedienne Ada Jesus popped up on the screen. The comedienne, who is currently down with renal disease was in his church last Tuesday with her family to beg for forgiveness.

Lying critically ill on the floor of the church’s auditorium, Odumeje vowed never to forgive her until she brings those she said he supposedly connived with for the miracles she said were fake.

Recall that Ada Jesus in a video that went viral on Facebook had accused Prophet Odumeje of staging fake miracles. She later came down with an ailment that got her paralyzed and unable to speak after she made the allegation in 2020. Ada Jesus’ mother alongside her father and husband, however, washed off their hands from her predicament, with her mother raining more curses on her that she would never live to tell her story for choosing to lie against a prophet of God.

Thereafter, Saturday Vanguard had an exclusive interview session with the self-acclaimed ‘the Lion.’

Odumeje had severally referred to himself as ‘Indaboski Bahose’, ‘the lion himself’, ‘the fighter’, ‘the war’, ‘the liquid metal’, ‘lebadu’, ‘seplae’, and ‘Radical prophet’.

How I started my ministry

It all started in 1996 when I was selling polythene bags in Onitsha, Anambra state. My mother was mounting pressure on me, telling me stories about Jesus Christ and how He wanted me to serve Him. I was resisting the calling, wondering how a young man like myself would be armed with the Bible, preaching on the streets, when I was supposed to be making money like other young men. I asked my mother to tell that Jesus who had been appearing to her to come and arrest me, without which I would not succumb to the calling.

After many weeks, the Lord appeared and touched me while I was sleeping on the floor. He said, “I am the Lord, I am coming to visit you.” I suddenly got up and started screaming! When I looked at my right shoulder, I saw a kind of red colour imprint of His five fingers on my body. Moments later, a heavy wind started blowing around me, and suddenly, I found myself suspended in the air and I heard a voice from far away from saying “I am the Lord, wait for me. I am preparing and when I am through, I will come and visit you.” I was screaming and screaming! At that point, I became afraid and accepted the call of God without further delay.

The spirit of God now came upon me immediately, as I started going from street to street preaching the gospel of salvation. This was happening between 1996 and 1999. In 2000, I went public with my ministry. I moved out of our one-room apartment, on No 14 Usman street, Onitsha, where people were gathering for prayers and counselling. When I finally kicked off my ministry at the age of 18, I was going from street to street, preaching the gospel of salvation after which I would retire to my shop, located at the popular Maduike Street, Onitsha, to do my business.

The first miracle I performed

Then, I was prospering in my business, as my customers, despite the fact that I would not open my shop on time, would wait patiently for me while I was preaching on the streets. God was blessing me materially. It will interest you to know that the man I served then is one of my pastors today. He has been with me for over fifteen years.

One day, I was lying down when Christ appeared again to me and said “My son, I want you to leave your business and kick start your ministry now.” I felt pained to close my shop and go into full-time ministry. Moreover, my business was becoming more lucrative. Initially, I didn’t believe my calling was a full-time thing. I thought it was something I could combine with my business. So, when I attempted to resist the calling, one day I was going to supply goods to my customers and I fell under anointing. When I got home that day, I told my mum what God told me and my mum, who was pressurizing me to answer the call of God, said it was not possible, that God cannot tell me to close my shop, which was flourishing. And for the fact that I was the breadwinner of the family. So, I tried to console her as I hit the streets every morning to preach the gospel of salvation to avoid staying idle at home. That was how I went into full-time ministry as a prophet of God.

The first miracle I performed was to deliver a woman from the spirit of madness. She’s been a member of my church since then, though she’s married today. That was how I started going after all my friends, who were bad boys then and led them to Christ. Though it wasn’t an easy battle, at the end of it all, they all surrendered to Christ. In my calling, I always tell God that He must prove to me that all things are possible to them that believe. I didn’t believe in faith. I would not believe in what I didn’t see. I would see before I could believe it.

Why I don’t get tired on the pulpit

Again, I asked Him to direct me to the church where He belonged so that I would not join the wrong one. He said “I do not belong to any church, I live inside of you, your body is my temple. If you maintain my relationship with you I will manifest myself, and if you don’t maintain my relationship with you, I will keep the quiet inside of you.

He started appearing to me regularly and explaining a lot of things to me. Then, I used to be stubborn and I was doubting Thomas. But I had to bow to the power of God and started preaching on the streets of Onitsha, with a megaphone. Then, all my friends not only abandoned me, but they were laughing at me. I started avoiding them and spending more time going to the mountain at Okigwe to pray and seek the face of God.

That’s why I don’t get tired on the pulpit because I have strengthened myself with fasting and prayer. He fortified me because He said “I neither sleep nor slumber.” He also told me that he would be proving my doubts with evidence. My life revolves around doubts, and Christ proved everything I requested from Him.

What I don’t believe in

I don’t believe in long sermons like most pastors do these days. Don’t tell me stories about Christ, it’s as if you are brainwashing me and want to empty my pocket. Christ spoke a little and performed so many miracles. I don’t believe in faith. Those are business-minded churches. I said He must prove to me that He’s new every morning. He also must prove to me that He’s the same yesterday and today and forevermore. He must prove to me when He said that we shall do greater things than what He did.

He raised the dead from the grave. Elijah laid on the dead and the dead came back to life. I asked God which power did Elijah use to resurrect the dead and He gave me the spiritual name of the power, and I told Him I want to experience the power. I reminded God what He said in the Bible that “He is not a man that He should lie.” I asked Christ to prove to me what He said so that I would follow the law as He directs me. Christ spoke to my mum about my mission on earth. That’s why I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I asked Him which name shall I call upon. And He said to me “call my name, and I will answer you.”

Why they are calling me a devil

I delivered a woman that somebody took to the river for spiritual healing. I said to her, I will perform this miracle to prove to the world that there’s only one God and one power. And that man is Jesus Christ. I delivered her of spiritual attacks. She came to the church today (last Friday) to share her testimony. I performed another interesting miracle in a church in Benin, where I was invited to come and preach the word of God.

When I fell under the anointing, I saw a man suffering from elephantiasis. I asked him to step out in the crowd and as he was doing so, the Holy Spirit told me that the man was suffering from elephantiasis. So, when he came out, I commanded the elephantiasis to disappear immediately and it did. Today, the man is married with three boys and one girl. I don’t charge money to perform any miracle. Freely He gives to me, and freely I give to you.

The only thing I require of you is to fear Lord. I am not like many fake pastors of today, who will speak in tongues, and make incantations just to collect the last kobo from you. And that’s why the Lord cannot allow practical miracles to happen in many Churches because they are full of lies. They are busy cooking up stories that will draw the attention of people to sow the last money in their pockets as seed and even drop their cars. And that’s also why they are criticizing and calling me a devil because I don’t ask people to pay for my miracles. I try to prove everything to make people fear and honour the Lord. People should not see the Lord as a second option and that’s what many churches are doing today.

Some pastors in the bid to perform miracles will visit native doctors who usually make a mockery of them to acquire powers. That’s why many of them will be saying ‘Ndaboski’, we know who you are, forget it. This is because people don’t know Christ, what they know is the church. And that’s not my mission. My mission is not for people to praise me, I won’t take it. That’s why I move around without security because a clear conscience fears no accusation.

Christ said we should not love them because of what we can get from them. But love them because you want them to know me. That’s why I preach the gospel with anger and dedication. This is because the world is full of confusion and deceit. I practice my own Christianity with evidence.

“The suspect is one of the major suppliers of illicit drugs in Abia State, especially in the Isialangwa communities. The State government has been notified and his building has been marked for demolition.”


In a similar development, the Taraba state Command of the Agency has arrested 61-year-old Lawan Gambo Umar for trafficking 58.50kg of cannabis Sativa.

According to the state Commander of NDLEA, Suleiman Ajadi, “the suspect was taking the skunk concealed inside sacks of beans chaff used to feed animals to Fune in Yobe state when our men intercepted him.”

Reacting to the two developments, Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA, Brig. General Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) commended the Abia and Taraba Commands of the agency for the seizures and arrests while urging them to sustain the current tempo of offensive action to rid the country of illicit substances.

“No doubt, the volume that has been seized in these two operations is less the kilogramme meant for our towns and communities.

“I, therefore, urge our officers and men across all the Commands all over the country to continue to smoke all the elements involved in this criminal trade out of their hiding places”,
 Gen. Marwa said on Wednesday.

Nigerians Drag Odumeje, Rita Edochie Over Ada Jesus’ Death

Ada died on Wednesday of kidney complications two days after celebrating her birthday.




The 22-year-old had in a February 2021 revealed that she had been battling with a kidney problem for almost a year.

She said her body and face began swelling in December and was advised to go for a kidney transplant in India.

Things took a bitter turn recently when a video of controversial Odumeje and Edochie cursing the comedian appeared online.

Ada had previously accused Rita of conniving with Odumeje to perform fake miracles.

Months after that accusation, the comedian fell ill and was taken to Odumeje’s church to seek forgiveness.

The prophet, however, vowed not to forgive her until she provides evidence to back her claims of fake miracles.

He accused the comedienne of ruining his image with false accusations on social media.

Instead of forgiveness, he rained curses on Ada, boasting that anybody who speaks against him will suffer terrible consequences.

Rita Edochie is also heard in the video cursing Ada and vowing not to forgive the comedian.

“You will go from here. You will die from this so others can learn,” she said in Igbo.

The backlash that followed the release of the video forced Odumeje and Rita to say at different times that they had forgiven the comedian.

Her death has, however, led to more public condemnation of the cleric and actress who have been accused of playing god.

Here is what some Nigerians had to say on Twitter:

A Nigerian professor has revealed how the minister of communications and digital economy instigated muslims to kill his son when he was an imam.

Prof. Samuel Achi has narrated how the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami instigated extremists to kill his son.
 
Achi said that Pantami while serving as the Chief Imam of the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), Bauchi mosque used his preaching to instigate his followers who brutally murdered his son, a 400-level student identified as Sunday Achi
His son Sunday then was the leader of the ECWA Student Ministries (ESM) on the campus.
 
His crime was that he was said to have distributed a Christian tract which Sheik Pantami had said blasphemed Islam and Prophet Mohammed.
 
According to Niche online, the story was that Achi was dragged out from his room by Muslim fundamentalists at the prompting of Pantami, taken to a remote location within the school premises where he was stoned to death.
 
But according to the father of the late student, Prof. Samuel Achi, in Kaduna, his son was strangled to death inside the mosque where Pantami held court, not stoned.
 
“One thing I know that you people (media) got wrong was that my son was not stoned to death. He was strangled inside the mosque and they threw the corpse outside the university mosque,” he said.
He insisted that there was nothing blasphemous in the tract his son and his colleagues shared that should warrant a death sentence. 
 
Achi narrated how a former governor of Kaduna state helped in retrieving his son’s corpse from Bauchi for burial in Kaduna by liaising with the then governor of Bauchi State, Adamu Muazu.
 
Many Nigerians have called for the sacking or resignation of Pantami after some comments he made some years ago came into light. 
 
"We are all happy whenever unbelievers are killed,” Pantami once said as an Islamic scholar and cleric. 
 
 He also hailed Osama Bin Laden, who orchestrated the terrorist attacks on United States soil on September 11, 2001, saying the terrorist "is a better Muslim than myself."
 
Pantami once also condemned Muslims who took up government positions, saying he would never join politics or take up a role in government.

Dutch authorities have launched an investigation into the man’s identity and cause of death after he was discovered inside a wheel arch.

 

In what will come across as a really shocking development, a body of an unidentified man was found in the landing gear compartment of a plane that had arrived in Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport from Lagos, Nigeria on Monday, April 19.

Dutch authorities have launched an investigation into the man’s identity and cause of death after he was discovered inside a wheel arch.

"We are investigating the discovery of a body in the landing gear of an airplane that arrived from Lagos (Nigeria)," , Royal Military Police tweeted on Tuesday, adding that the Schiphol airport police unit and forensic investigators were working on establishing the person's identity and cause of death.

Stowaway

According to the Dutch media, the body was discovered by the airport technical staff in the KLM airlines plane. The victim was reportedly a stowaway and was killed by the low temperatures during the flight.

A spokesperson for the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad: “The man had holed up in the wheel arch of the plane. The low temperatures have presumably been fatal to him during the flight.”

In a similar case, a boy, 16, from Kenya hid in the landing gear of a plane flying to Maastricht Aachen airport from London, in February this year.

He survived but has been hospitalised with severe hypothermia. It is thought he later applied for asylum status.
