Nasarawa Assembly To Serve Al-Makura fresh Impeachment Notice


Indications weekend, emerged that members of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly were set to re-issue Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura another impeachment notice any moment from today.

This followed alleged constitutional breach by Chief Judge of the state, Justice Suleiman Dikko, in the composition of the probe panel that earlier cleared the governor of any wrong doing in the first impeachment notice.
According to Vanguard the National Judicial Council, NJC, had been petitioned, accusing Justice Dikko of contravening Section 188(5) of the 1999 constitution by appointing two partisan politicians and public office holder on the probe panel. The Assembly was also said to have drawn the attention of the NJC on other added issues on professional misconduct where the CJ was allegedly found culpable.
The petition includes a case whose judgment has been allegedly stalled by the CJ for over three years since the final submission by counsel as against the stipulated three months, citing personal interest as the motive behind the miscarriage of justice.
It  is being romoured that the CJ is expected to vacate office within the week either through suspension or any other means to pave the way for a new CJ expected to constitute a new panel of investigation.
The source, however, assured that the lawmakers were not going to interfere with the composition of the panel, but would object to any case of constitutional breach aimed at giving any party an undue advantage over another.

Christ Embassy Drama Getting Messier, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome's Wife Anita', Deleted From Church Website


The drama going on in Christ Embassy church is just getting getting messier. As you read this, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome's church has removed every single information about his wife, Anita from the church website: (http://www.christembassy.org/).


Obviously, the action is not unconnected with the wind of divorce currently blowing in the family. Before she took him to court, the picture of Pastor Chris and Anita were on the homepage of the church website but following the shocking revelation, the wife has been removed from the site. 

According to insiders, Pastor Chris recently complained about the character of his wife...

After members of the church in the UK showed concern over Pastor Anita's absence from the church, in which she officiates, since November 2013, Pastor Christ was quoted as saying:

"I am here for your concerns about the ongoing domestic issue with my wife and I know it affects you directly, being the ones under her leadership. This is not an organization or a political party, so it's not a place for you to air your opinion or scrutinize what we do.
"We had a vision, started and you joined us. If you don't like what we do, you can get out. Churches where members air their views never grow. Some pastors' wives think when they marry a pastor they are equal to the pastor. 
"My wife thinks so, as a matter of fact, Rev. Tom was her pastor before I married her and Rev. Ray and Evang. Owase were her leaders long before I married her. How come she thinks she's senior to them now? I already started Christ Embassy before I married her. 
"I didn't marry her and said we should start Christ Embassy. I was already pastoring. I already set my sail and knew my direction before I married her. I only said come and help me. Be careful of the friends you keep. 
"My wife keeps friends who bring out the worst in her and help her see the worst in people instead of keeping friends that will help her vision especially as the wife of a global pastor like me. 
"Bitterness is prolonged and accumulated anger. My wife is always angry and bitter. Allegations are either false or twisted information. The current situation is not as a result of what I did or what I didn't do. 
I didn't do anything to have caused an upheaval. You don't join a woman to fight her husband. I'm not teaching you what is wrong, at least I have two girls who will one day marry and I want to them to enjoy it.‎"
-Pastor Chris on May 16, 2014 in a meeting with UK Pastors and Deacons at Christ Embassy, Bermondsey.

Super Eagle Player Emmanuel Emenike in 30Million Naira Land Dispute with Enugu State Government


Emmanuel Emenike Emmanuel Emenike of Nigeria poses prior the 2013 African Cup of Nations Semi-Final match between Mali and Nigeria at Moses Mahbida Stadium on February 06, 2013 in Durban, South Africa.
Nigeria World Cup star, Emmanuel Emenike is up in arms with the Enugu State Government over 13 plots of land worth 30 million Naira (about $180,000), which he bought to build a sports academy in Enugu.
Soldiers had allegedly invaded the property and pre vented any work on it, the Fenerbache star exclusively told AfricanFootball.com.
A bitter Emenike said he bought the 13 plots of land after the World Cup in Brazil through a top official of Enugu State Government, who had since handed him all the documents.
He further narrated: “I worked hard to make my money, I know what I pass through on the pitch before I earn my living and it will be unfair if what am hearing about my land in Enugu State was true.
“I visit Enugu whenever I come to Nigeria, my friends stay there, as well as some of my family members. And I am the kind of person who allows for advise. Even before now, I had a dream to own an academy not only in Nigeria but I believe in the saying that, ‘charity begins at home.’
“About three, four months ago, I acquired 13 plots of land in Enugu State through a government official. When I was given the documents, nobody told me there was any problem on the land. He gave me all the necessary docu ments in my name after payment.
“I then directed that work should commence immedi ately, but the state government directed soldiers to stop anybody from working there.”
He added: “I don’t want to believe that this is fraud. I am ready to fight it all.
“I have called some top government officials in Enugu, but all of them are not trying to be sincere. They could not help because I understand the order came from above.
“Nobody is trying to be sincere and as a matter of fact, I want my money back. I am very depressed that there is no confidence in investing in my country. I just don’t understand the pranks.”
“Right from time, I don’t like going through govern ment for anything. I prefer to do it with my money and I see no reason why my property will be held back by government.”
Emenike told AfricanFootball.com he had tried to get land in Imo State, but the government refused him and so he opted to do it elsewhere

5yr Old Girl Sustains Horrific Injuries After Being Allegedly Attacked in Her School



5 year old AvaLynn was nearly disfigured when she was allegedly attacked by another pupil at her Elementary school in Mississippi this week. The most bizarre thing about this story is that the school is maintaining that she was not attacked, rather she got the horrific injuries in an accident while playing on the playground. Makes no sense. This looks more like a vicious attack to me.

Her mother and other relatives have opened a Facebook page for the young girl to tell what happened to her and share photos of her injuries, while seeking for justice. Below is what they wrote on the Facebook page about the incident...
"On Tuesday, August 26, 2014, Lacey Harris was called go come pick up her daughter at Arlington Elementary School in Pascagoula, Mississippi, because AvaLynn had been injured in an accident. The sight Lacey found when she got to Ava's school was a parents' nightmare: her face swollen, cut, and bruised beyond recognition." Continue...
Lacey rushed Ava to the family pediatrician, who burst into tears upon seeing the Ava's battered visage. Fortunately, the doctor determined that it is unlikely that Ava would have any permanent physical damage. Mental and emotional damage is another story altogether.

AvaLynn informed Lacey that she was assaulted by another student: that she was kicked repeatedly in the face until she fell off of the slide on the school's playground. The school informed Lacey were no teachers present when the incident occurred, and because of that, no one could prove whether or not another student had harmed Ava.
After days of Lacey, friends, and family members reaching out to local news stations and to Facebook and other social media bodies, the school finally released a statement: AvaLynn was injured as the result of an accident, one that involved no other children. Although a police report was filed, Pascagoula Police Department states that they are not investigating the situation.
The school basically claims that Ava injured herself, as all the photos depicting her injuries will debunk. The local PD claims that there has been no criminal act, which the injury photos also disprove.
So now we've taken this to Facebook, asking everyone out there to please share this page, to please share AvaLynn's story. We need this to reach as many people as possible so that this little girl will not go without justice. Please share this with your friends, your relatives, and all your local news outlets. Please help us get the answers and the justice that our little angel deserves.
The Pascagoula School District issued the following statement about the incident:
"A student was injured while playing on the playground at Arlington Elementary School Tuesday afternoon. School officials responded to the situation. The parent was contacted and the student received medical treatment. No other children were involved in the incident. The Pascagoula School District remains committed to the safety of all its students."

The mother of the girl, Lacey Harris (pictured above with AvaLynn), wrote on Friday night:
“As much as my heart is broken for my daughter, I am also amazed by the outpouring of love and support from our family, friends, Oasis church family and our community. Thank you so much for your concern, kind words, prayers, thoughts, shares, and donation. We ask that you continue these kind gestures.”
How do you fall and receive such injuries? I pray for the school to be closed forever if they can take care of kids under their care.

Diplomat, Who took Ebola to Rivers, an ECOWAS Staff - Says River State Governor

Ebola patient being attended to

The Rivers state Government has disclosed that the man who evaded surveillance in Lagos and travelled to Port Harcourt after coming in contact with Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian American, who brought the virus to Nigeria, is a personnel of the sub-regional group, the Economic Community of West African States [ECOWAS]. 

In a broadcast to the people of Rivers state Thursday, the state governor, Rotimi Amaechi, said the ECOWAS diplomat, who he did not name, travelled to Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital, after Mr. Sawyer infected him in Lagos. He in turn infected a doctor, Ikechukwu Enemuo, who treated him. Mr. Amaechi said the ECOWAS official travelled to Port Harcourt the day Mr. Sawyer died in Lagos. 

Mr. Amaechi said, “Our investigations revealed that a staff of the Economic Community of West African States [ECOWAS], on the day that the late Sawyer died of Ebola, made a trip to Port Harcourt where he went into a hotel and met with Dr. Ike (Enemuo). “About a week after his departure, Dr. Ike (Enemuo) took ill and was rushed to hospital with symptoms of fever and diarrhea. In the course of treatment, the doctor became suspicious and took blood samples for investigation. “In three days, Dr. Ike (Enemuo) died. Dr. Ike’s widow, who is also medical person, and who also took care of him, has taken ill and has been quarantined. Diplomat who was seen by late Dr. Enemuo  is alive and well, there is no need to panic.” 

Mr. Amaechi wouldn’t reveal the identity or nationality of the diplomat just like the Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu, who while confirming the new Ebola cases in Port Harcourt, failed to disclose the identity of the man who took the disease there. 

It remains unclear whether Dr. Enemuo knew the diplomat was Ebola-positive before he agreed to treat him. Earlier reports said he “secretly” treated the ECOWAS official, but details of his knowledge of the official’s exact medical condition are unclear. Governor Amaechi did not provide those details in his speech Thursday. The identity of the diplomat also remains unknown with neither the Nigerian government nor ECOWAS agreeing to release the name.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s Wife Anita Files for Divorce in London Court on Grounds Of Adultery


Chris aAnita
Rev. Pastor Anita is seeking to divorce her husband pastor Chris Oyakhilome, she is   said to be seeking divorce on the grounds of “unreasonable behaviour” and “adultery” and several other allegations.
She outlined several allegations against the pastor which cannot publish for legal reasons. The divorce case, with Suit No FD14D01650, was filed on April 9, 2014 at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn, London, UK, on Anita’s behalf by Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors, a full-service law firm with expertise in commercial law and a strong consumer focus in family, wills and estate, personal injury law and medical negligence. 
The report further stated that Anita recently wanted to go public with her allegations against Oyakhilome, but in the interest of the church, she reached an informal agreement to hold her peace.
Efforts to reconcile the popular couple, whose church is one of the biggest denominations in Nigeria and has branches all over world, have failed. 

Chris Oyakhilome is the president of Believers’ Love World Inc, the registered name of the Christian ministry, while his wife is the vice-president. The pastor, according to an elder of the church, has denied allegations of adultery and believes his wife is being influenced by “bad friends” who are intent on destroying their home. 

While Anita believes she has been relegated in the scheme of things in the church, her husband has reportedly accused her of trying to usurp power and authority above her seniors in the ministry. Sources told TheCable that the pastor had been making efforts to avoid divorce in the hope that the wife would eventually have a change of mind. 

However, the decree nissi was served on the charismatic pastor in his hotel room during a recent visit to the UK. Decree nissi, in legal terms, is like a yellow card in a football match which is a precursor to a red card (“decree absolute”) if no new evidence is provided to stall proceedings. 

Church insiders said Oyakhilome had been hoping for rapprochement, but he was left with no option than to receive the papers when the lawyers cornered him at his hotel in London. 

The decree absolute, which will effectively end the marriage, is expected to be issued soon while terms of the divorce will be worked out by the lawyers on both sides.

In recent years, there have been increasing rumours about the pair having split up, but the Pastor and members of his Church have repeatedly denied the claims.
They have two teenage daughters, Sharon and Charlyn.

ISIS Parade Capatured Kurds, then beheads one, Hours After Executing 300 Syrian Soldiers


ISIS militants yesterday released a video showing them executing about 300 Syrian soldiers they captured near the Tabqa air base as the soldiers attempted to flee the fallen air base in Raqqa, Syria.

They stripped the soldiers down to their briefs, took them to the desert, lined them up and executed them. Then hours later, they posted another video showing captured Kurd fighters wearing orange prison uniforms. This time they executed only one....beheaded him on video (pictured right)...while warning the Kurds to break from their alliance with the US government against the caliphate or face more capture and executions.

Islamic State also threatened America in the video, warning them to cease its support of the Kurdish people or they will continuing beheading prisoners, including Americans. See the photos after the cut
