Pastor Docked For Scam Prophecy At God Is Able Mega Fire Ministry, Yenagoa.

God is Able Mega Fire Ministry, located in Opolo, Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, has its pastor, Apostle Kingsley Abiekunogho, arraigned for alleged fake prophecy and obtaining by trick.

The police in Bayelsa State arraigned the man of God on Wednesday at Magistrate’s Court 3, Yenagoa, headed by Magistrate Eke Spiff.

Abiekunogho was alleged to have fraudulently obtained a Toyota SUV and N20,000 from a church member, Seiyefa Sayou, in exchange for miraculous blessings.

The pastor allegedly collected the car and the money from Sayou, promising that he would receive the items in two folds after a month.

The complainant was said to have been invited to the church by a friend on September 9, 2017 during a crusade of the church.

It was learnt that on getting to the church, a guest minister, identified as Apostle Chris, from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, convinced Sayou to give the sum of N20,000 and his SUV in exchange for spiritual breakthroughs.

Sayou was said to have parted with the vehicle and the money after Apostle Chris had narrated frightening stories of how people that didn’t give died mysteriously and how he (Sayou) would die if he failed to give the items.

Abiekunogho allegedly promised Sayou, through the guest minister, that in a month’s time, he (Sayou) would receive whatever he had donated to the church in double folds and come to give testimony.

Narrating how the SUV was taken from him, Saiyou said Chris called him from the crowd and asked how much he had in his bank account.

He said he had N15,000.

“The pastor said, ‘How can an honourable like you have only N15,000?’ Eventually, I was compelled to pledge N20,000. We were asked to redeem our pledges the following day.

“The following day, I went to my bank and withdrew the N15,000 in my account. I borrowed N5,000 to make up the N20,000 I vowed.

“They (Abiekunogho and Chris) also asked how many cars I had and I said one. They said I should sow it as a seed and that I would get double of what I had given. Thereafter, the guest pastor gave me honey to drink and mandated me to do change of ownership of the vehicle immediately. They brought a form to me that said I voluntarily gave out my car and I signed without knowing what I was doing.

“Thereafter, I went to a shop, bought a nylon bag and packed all my belongings and went home. When I got home, my wife asked me for the car and I told her that I had sown it as a seed. She said since it was for God, there was no problem,” he added.

Sayou said when he woke up the next day, he started looking for the car.

His wife was on hand to remind him that he had sowed the SUV as a seed offering in church the previous day.

Sayou said, “After several months, things got worse for me. So, I asked the pastor to return my vehicle because many months had passed without any form of financial increase.”

“When the pastor refused to return the SUV to me, I reported to the police. The pastor was invited. When the pastor got to the police station, he said he had sold the car which I bought N3.9m for N1.5m.

“When the person who bought the car was contacted, he asked for N3m to release the vehicle. But the Police refused and ordered him to bring it anyway. He later brought the car to the station after learning the pastor was detained.”

The Magistrate, Spiff, ordered Abiekunogho to produce the guest minister in court at the next sitting.

The case has been adjourned till April 4, 2018.

Senate President Calls for More Funding for Security Agencies

The Atiku Support Organisation has tasked Senate President Ahmad Lawan to ensure the passage of the Amended Electoral Act.

The organisation recalled that Lawan had in December 2020 promised that the Amended Electoral Act will be passed before the end of the first quarter of 2021.

According to the organisation, “It appears the APC-led Senate is making every effort to frustrate and sabotage INEC plans and thus give room to political bandits to compromise the integrity of the electoral process as it was done in the 2019 general elections.”

This was made known in a statement signed by the Director-General, Abubakar Kabir Babawo, and the National Publicity Secretary, Dr. El Mo Victor.

The statement read, “Atiku Support Organisation tasks Senate President Dr. Ahmad Lawan (@DrAhmadLawan) on passage of the Amended Electoral Act. Charges him to prove he is not planning to compromise the integrity of the upcoming elections in Anambra, Osun, Ekiti, and the 2023 polls.

“It is on record that the Senate under the leadership of Dr. Ahmad Lawan had on December 10th, 2020 and on various occasions and times promised Nigerians that the amended electoral act, which will promote transparency and restore the integrity of the battered Nigeria electoral system, will be passed before the end of the first quarter of 2021.

“Against this backdrop, the Independent National Electoral Commission (@INECNigeria) under the leadership of Prof. Yakubu Mahmoud promised to deploy technology, Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) for the November 6th, 2021 Anambra state gubernatorial polls to ensure transparency and credibility of the process. But, it appears, the APC-led Senate is making every effort to frustrate and sabotage INEC plans and thus give room to political bandits to compromise the integrity of the electoral process as it was done in the 2019 general elections.

“At ASO, we believe that using technology in our electoral process in the 21st century remains a sine qua non to improving credibility and

transparency in the process, increased voter confidence and participation, and ensuring that people’s ballots count.

“Therefore, as the National Assembly (@NassNigeria and @NGRSenate) resumes plenary, we demand among others the following:

“The immediate passage of the amended electoral act to grant INEC time to deploy the requisite technology for the Anambra gubernatorial polls.

“An explanation from Dr. Ahmad Lawan-led senate on the grounds for the non-passage of the electoral amendment bill before the end of the first quarter of 2021.

“The International community (@UKinNigeria @USinNigeria and @EUinNigeria) to intervene and ensure the passage of the electoral amendment act before the Anambra State gubernatorial polls to enhance the integrity of the election and save the lives of voters.”

Defect To APC, Lose Your Seat, Yari Tells Matawalle

Published

on

A former governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji AbulAziz Yari, has told the state governor, Bello Matawalle, to note that he would lose his seat if he leaves the Peoples Democratic Party, going by the Supreme Court’s verdict that brought him to power in 2019.

Yari spoke at the secretariat of the All Progressives Congress in Gusau on Sunday, during the distribution of N1.3bn assorted grains he purchased for the APC supporters as Ramadan gift.

He was represented by Senator Kabiru Marafa.

He said nobody had informed them either verbally or in writing that Matawalle was defecting to the APC.

He, however, cautioned that the apex court nullified the election of the APC candidates in 2019 and announced the PDP candidates as winners who would remain in power till 2023.

“As such, until after that period, any PDP elected officer who defects to another party must also vacate his seat going by the court’s judgment,” he said.

Yari said Matawalle was being misled by some people to join the APC “forgetting the circumstances that have made him to become the governor of the state.”
