Former housemate, Bisola reflects on how her life has changed one year after Big Brother Naija

Former housemate, Bisola reflects on how her life has changed one year after Big Brother Naija





It’s one year since former housemate, Bisola returned to Nigerian after participating in the Big Brother Naija reality show where she emerged the last woman standing.

Today, she celebrates one year since the whole experience changed her life and how her journey has transformed ever since.

Bisola wrote,

“Today is a birthday of sorts for me. One year ago, I left the Big Brother House as runner-up and set upon a path that has been beyond my wildest dreams. People always ask me about my time in the house, but truth is none of us imagined the hype surrounding everything we were doing and how our lives were going to change.

It still takes me by surprise when I travel around the world and people come up to me to wish me well and sometimes even quote things I said from a year ago. I went into the house with just one purpose which was to reach as many people and showcase my talent. When I think of the things that my Big Brother experience has allowed me to do in the past 12 months, it is difficult to do so without overwhelming gratitude.

It has connected me to my beautiful family, @thetemplecompany. It has allowed me greater selection in the kind of projects I do. It has given me the opportunity to add my voice to the plight of our young girls who have the smallest voices in our country.

Most importantly, it has allowed me to be closer to all of you. I thank @multichoice_africa , @payporte and @dstvnigeria for the life-changing opportunity. I thank My mother, my sister @Adunola.a ,My daughter Leyla for their constant support. I thank you @biodunstephen And @thetemplecompany for always having my back. I thank each and every one of you for continuing to tolerate my craziness and allowing me to be myself. Trust me when I say you ain’t seen nothing yet! I love you all. #NaTheWorkWeDeyDo#BeTheMovement #TMC #TMPL #BBNaija

''The devil is at work to soil my husband's name'' wife of OAU lecturer in sex-for-marks scandal says


The wife of OAU lecturer, Professor Richard Akindele, who is currently enmeshed in a sex-for-marks scandal, has denied the allegations against him, saying the devil is out to tarnish her husband's reputaion.

The professor who is a clergyman at the Anglican Diocese of Ife, Osun State, was caught in a recorded phone conversation, demanding five rounds of sex from a female student before she can pass his course. Read intial story here

Premiumtimes had a chat with some of his church members who expressed shock at the development. One of the church members said they went to the professor's house immediately the news broke on social media and met his wife who blamed the devil.

''When we heard the news, some of us were surprised. We were at his house very early this (Tuesday) morning but only met his wife who said the devil is at work to soil the name of her husband.” he said
A cleric in the church who simply identified himself as Reverend Adeola said: “Although, the voice I heard is that of Reverend Akindele, I doubt he can do that. I’m not in best position to speak. But what I can say for free is that I know him to be a man of God, generous and easy going.”

Another church member said there will be no need for a computer test on the leaked audio as the voice is definitely that of the professor.
''There is no need for any computer to test the voice. The voice in the leaked audio is exactly that of Reverend Richard Akindele. However, the man is too gentle for such act. The lady purposely set him up.” he said

No woman deserves to be humiliated like this - Nina

In a post and delete statement on Instagram, Nina's publicist said that Nina is being humiliated by 'someone' she risked everything for, and that she has 'brought so much shame on herself' just to be with that person only to be betrayed by him. 

The post was deleted after the publicist who many suggest is Nina's sister was called out by followers who didn't agree with the statement. 

Nina and Miracle's relationship went south on Monday after Miracle expressed his displeasure on Nina referring to him as just a friend. While she was speaking with fellow housemate, Tobi, Nina said she is done with Miracle and doesn't want to have anything to do with him again.

'‘I was deceived to joining them to see President Buhari'' Abuja pastor who accompanied Arewa pastors to visit Buhari says



One of the Arewa pastors who visited President Buhari at the presidential villa in Abuja last week, says he was deceived into joining the delegation.

In an interview with The Cable, the Abuja based clergyman, Henry Sado, said he was deceived to join the Arewa Pastors Non-Denominational Initiative for Peace in Nigeria (APPIN) who during their visit, endorsed President Buhari for a second term and promised to expose those working against him within the Christain fold.

Their visit sparked controversy on social media with claims that the pastors went on a political pilgrimage to visit President Buhari. The pastors allegedly failed to speak on the abducted Dapchi school girl, Leah Sharibu.

In an attempt to clear his name, Sado who is a pastor at the Abuja branch of Church of Eternal Life, gives an insight into how he was invited as part of the delegation.
“Bishop JRA (John Richard Abu) called me on Wednesday, April 5, 2018, to be part of his team to Aso Rock on Thursday, April 6. He told me about his closeness to a former president of CAN. He also said he had spoken with the chairman of Pentecostal Bishops in the 19 northern states and FCT who is also the founder of Dominion Chapel International Churches, Archbishop Daniels John Praise; hence I should please follow him.
“I asked him the purpose of the visit to the Villa and he said like other Christian groups that have been visiting the villa, he wants to go and present burning issues to President Buhari, including the case of Leah Sharibu, the female student of Government Science Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state, who is still being held captive by Boko Haram insurgents and a prayer conference. I am not privy to the speech he presented.
I met him for the first time on Thursday, April 5, 2018, in fact, I had to call him to identify him in the midst of others. On getting to the villa, the Chaplain of Aso Villa (Seyi Malomo) was surprised to see him and he asked of Archbishop Daniels John Praise and Rev. Yakubu Pam (chairman of CAN in 19 northern states and FCT), two very prominent northern Christian leaders, and he (Abu) said they were not on his team. There and then, I suspected there are issues, I had been conscripted through deception.
“I was asked to stand in for FCT since the Arewa pastors are supposed to come from the 19 northern states and FCT. I am a Pastor and have lived in Abuja for the past 17 years, by God’s grace. Some Christian leaders have been to our church before. I was former national chairman of YOWICAN (Youth Wing of CAN). I have never turned my back against the Christian community before, my records with the fathers and God speaks for me.”

"The devil targeted my mind. He tried to make me lose it!" Toke Makinwa says as she shares her struggles in the past few months

"The devil targeted my mind. He tried to make me lose it!" Toke Makinwa says as she shares her struggles in the past few months



Media personality, Toke Makinwa took to her IG page to share her struggles in the past few months and lessons she has learnt. She shared an inspirational video and wrote; 
I like to think I’m strong, I like to think my mind is positive and I’m out here focused on me, building to have a better life than I’ve had and just trying to leave this world a better place. Watching this clip broke me because this has been my state of mind this year. The devil targeted my mind. He tried to make me lose my mind!!!! Somehow strong TM started to live in a lot fear and doubt and the fear quickly turned to depression. I could sell out my bags or kill it at a stage play or smash another milestone in my career and be so happy today and wake up sad the next. The devil started planting words of uncertainty in my heart and I started to drift. I started to feel unworthy and it was a strange feeling I had a very important procedure and I didn’t tell anyone simply because a part of me wanted out from it. (Can you believe the cheek), last week I went into surgery and as the doctors did their thing, Jesus did his. He was there to lift all the unnecessary burden and give me a new heart and as I woke up I felt different. I felt chosen, I felt like I went thru a re-birth and I share this because someone out there is struggling too. We all have bad days but it’s not a bad life, we all doubt ourselves and feel uncertain but the fact that you are still breathing, there’s a second chance being given. It’s hard because we’ve become a people who shame others for opening up and who ridicule others to hide our own insecurities but I had to share this because just because you think TM is strong and untouchable which she probably is, I let the devil in without knowing it. Once you lose the battle over your mind, once you accept the negativity and let the doubt in and begin to listen to those words, you let the devil win and he will take it all. I know it’s hard, the fact that you face this challenge is tough enough but God is building you up to show you off so you too can one day say you’ve been thru the fire and you came out on the other side cos you have been chosen. It’s never easy for the selected. Your life will inspire someone to live again, take another chance, build again and stay alive. Stay winning??

"I gave you a part of me, a kidney, 2 years later you died from what shouldn't kill you" - Wife of Late Nigerian broadcaster Chaz B, mourns

"I gave you a part of me, a kidney, 2 years later you died from what shouldn

Chichi Chukwu, the wife  late On Air Personality, Charles Bruce Chukuma took to Instagram to mourn him 6 years after she donated her kidney to him ( April 10, 2012.)
The Relationship Coach popularly known as Chaz B died on Saturday,  November 22, 2014, while receiving treatment at the St. Nicholas Hospital in Lagos. He became very popular with his radio talk show “ Sharing Life Issues With CHAZ B ”, which originally aired on Inspiration FM and later on RYTHYM 93 .7 FM.

Recall that his family had alleged negligence on the part of medical doctors at the hospital.

In a petition signed before the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) by the late ace broadcaster's wife, Mrs Chinyere Roselin Chukuma and obtained by The Guardian, she accused the hospital of negligence and urged “the Investigation Panel to investigate the doctors in the employment of St. Nicholas Hospital and find out if there has not been a case of incompetence and gross negligence made out against them.”

The petition was deposed to as an affidavit before the High Court of Lagos State by Mrs Chukuma and filed by Olaolu Osanyin, the medical lawyer representing Chukuma ’ s family and estate.

According to the petitioner, her husband was a registered patient with St. Nicholas Hospital for his post kidney transplant care and also for general medical care.

She alleged that the deceased took ill about 6. 40 pm on November 21 , 2014 , and arrived the hospital about 7. 00 pm with her same day, but was not given adequate medical care by the hospital until he died at 9.30 am the following day (November 22 ).
The widow alleged that the doctor on duty when they arrived could not even access the deceased’ s medical file in the hospital as it was said to had been locked up in another doctor ’s office , which nobody had access to.
She noted that with her husband’ s medical file inaccessible , the doctor on call was at a loss on what to do and called one Dr . Balogun on phone who “ instructed that a particular injection be administered on my husband to ease the pains and said that they should observe him till the next morning."
She alleged that the doctor later “ told me that my husband would be fine; he asked me to take my husband home and bring him the following morning.”
“About 15 minutes after we got home, my husband said he felt like throwing up. I brought a bowl for him and he vomited and felt a bit better . He slept for sometime and later got up in an excruciating pain. Immediately, I jumped into my clothes and then called Dr . Balogun to say that we are on our way back to the hospital. He said no problem that the doctor will be waiting for me … a senior surgeon ,” she alleged.
According to her, the doctor never came , as the doctor on call , whom they had been dealing with from the onset , continued to take instructions from him on phone until her husband’ s death.
Alleging that her husband passed away because there was no competent hand to attend to him , she accused the hospital of failing “ to refer my husband to another hospital in good time, in order for him to get the best treatment he deserved.

Cambridge Analytica Scandal: Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak shuts down his Facebook account in protest


Cambridge Analytica Scandal: Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak shuts down his Facebook account in protest

Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak is shutting down his Facebook account as the social media giant struggles to cope with the worst privacy crisis in its history.

In an email to USA Today, Wozniak said Facebook makes a lot of advertising money from personal details provided by users. He said the "profits are all based on the user's info, but the users get none of the profits back."  

Wozniak said he'd rather pay for Facebook. "Apple makes money off of good products, not off of you," he said.  

In an interview late Monday in Philadelphia with The Associated Press, Wozniak said he had been thinking for a while of deleting his account and made the move after several of his trusted friends deleted their Facebook accounts last week.

It's "a big hypocrisy not respecting my privacy when (Facebook CEO Mark) Zuckerberg buys all the houses around his and all the lots around his in Hawaii for his own privacy. He knows the value of it, but he's not looking after mine" Wozniak said.  

A British data mining firm affiliated with Donald Trump's Republican presidential campaign gathered personal information from 87 million Facebook users to try to influence elections. Facebook, based in Menlo Park, California, has announced technical changes intended to address privacy issues.  

Zuckerberg has apologized, and Facebook's No. 2 executive, Sheryl Sandberg, has said she's sorry the company let so many people down. Zuckerberg will testify on Capitol Hill on Tuesday and Wednesday about the company's ongoing data privacy scandal and how it failed to guard against other abuses of its service.

 Wozniak said he doesn't believe in the current system that Facebook can fix its privacy issues, saying he doesn't think Facebook is going to change its policies "for decades."  Wozniak said Apple Inc., based in Cupertino, California, has systems and policies that in many cases allow people to choose whether to share certain data. He said he doesn't foresee Apple not allowing the Facebook app to be bought or downloaded on its phones but said he does not make those decisions for the company.

Nigerian Army sets up committee to Investigate T.Y. Danjuma’s claim


Nigerian Army sets up committee to Investigate T.Y. Danjuma?s claim



Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, has set up a committee to investigate claims of the Army’s complicity in the clashes between herdsmen and farmers in Taraba State.

Former Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Theophilus Danjuma (retd) last month accused the Nigerian Armed Forces of complicity in the killings in Taraba, Benue and other “riverine states” in the country.

Speaking during Taraba State University convocation, he alleged that the military was not neutral and was covering those behind the attacks. General Buratai while setting up the committee on Monday said it was necessary to clear the reputation of the Nigerian Army, adding that such allegation cannot be ignored.

“Statements of this nature could damage the reputation of the armed forces of Nigeria and thus cannot be ignored if the Nigerians Army will continue to earn the trust of the Nigerian populace. Thus, it became imperative for the Nigerian Army to set up this panel to confirm the veracity or otherwise of these allegations, the need for the Nigerian army to get it very clear and to get its name out of these unnecessary allegations,” he said.

General Buratai added that the military is ready to take responsibility or blame if they were really found to collude as alleged. Danjuma is an indigene of Taraba State which has is composed of various ethnic groups that have previously lived together peacefully until the recent attacks which had led to the death of many.

Mark Zuckerberg tells Congress: “I started Facebook. I run it. I’m responsible for what happens here”


Mark Zuckerberg tells Congress: ?I started Facebook. I run it. I?m responsible for what happens here?

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has expressed regret for the Cambridge Analytica saga.
In formal remarks submitted to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Zuckerberg took responsibility for allowing the app to harvest the personal data of millions of its users and for reacting too slowly to respond to Russian interference during the 2016 election.

Zuckerberg described Facebook as an idealistic company that is focused on connecting people. The social network has given 2 billion people around the globe powerful new tools to stay connected with the people they love and rally around social causes, raising $20 million for Hurricane Harvey relief, he said.

"But it’s clear now we didn’t do enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm as well," Zuckerberg said. "That goes for fake news, foreign interference in elections and hate speech, as well as developers and data privacy. We didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility and that was a big mistake. It was my mistake, and I’m sorry. I started Facebook. I run it, and I’m responsible for what happens here."
In his formal remarks, Zuckerberg described how the political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica obtained personal information about millions of Facebook users through a Cambridge University researcher who had extracted those details through a personality quiz app. He described the steps Facebook is taking now to prevent future abuse.
Zuckerberg also addressed Facebook’s awareness of Russian cyber threats leading up to the 2016 election and the disinformation campaign run by the Internet Research Agency, which tried to manipulate people in the U.S., Europe and Russia.
Zuckerberg's comments comes ahead of two days of Congressional hearings, which began at 2:15 p.m. yesterday, April 9,  with a joint session of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees and resume at 10 a.m. on Wednesday before the House commerce committee.

"I've barely felt anything": Killer makes chilling Facebook confession after murdering his mum and his friend

"I

A young man fatally shot his mum and friend then calmly confessed on Facebook, and his confession held no remorse. Afterward, he killed himself.
"I've barely felt anything," Casey Lawhorn, 23, wrote on Facebook after the killings.
He was being hunted by police after the bodies of his mum Vi Lawhorn, 44, and pal Avery Gaines, 22, were found at a home in East Ridge, Tennessee. Police said his car had been found on Sunday night and that he was wanted in connection with a double murder.

"I

In the message on Facebook, Casey admitted the killings and said that he planned to take his own life. His body was found on Monday.
The lengthy and disturbing message read:
This morning, at around 01:30, I shot and killed my mother (Vi Lawhorn) and a close friend of mine (Avery Gaines) with a stolen .22 LR.
I've spent a lot of time thinking about murder, wondering what it feels like. But I've barely felt anything.
Casey continued:
Avery was staying the night to go with me to Epikos Hixson tonight to play MtG like we usually do. He fell asleep on my living room floor at around 00:30, the same time I went to pick my mom up from Buds Sports Bar on Brainerd Road.
My mom was completely wasted, and just like every other time she gets drunk, she goes on and on, without prompt, about how devastated she'd be if I killed myself. Once I got her back to our house I went to my room and grabbed the gun. I nervously paced for a few minutes, playing the coming events out in my head, which were vastly different from what actually happened.
I walked up to Avery as he slept and shot him in the head once, he seemed to die instantly.
My mom was in her room, disoriented from alcohol, barely registered that anything happened.
I attempted to shoot her in her bed right then, but the gun jammed. She didn't notice what I just attempted.
I left the room and fixed the jam.
When I went back into her room, she was out of bed trying to calm down her dog, Oscar.
I rapidly got off 2 shots, but I missed anything vital since there weren't any lights on in her room. I saw 1 entry wound in her left arm, I'm not sure where the other one went.
She started screaming the worst scream I've ever heard.
Movies really don't do justice to how true terror sounds.
The gun jammed up again, so I scrambled to get it fixed.
She shouted 'You shot me! You've killed me! Why?' Once I got the jam fixed, I turned on the light so I wouldn't miss again. I shot at her twice more and it was over.
I went back into the living room to take the heroin and cash Avery had on him.
The hole in his forehead was so small, and not a lot of blood had come out of it.
However, thick, dark blood was pouring from his nose and bile came out of his mouth.
I was shaking from adrenaline, but I felt nothing other than that, except maybe disgust at the corpse in front of me and the noises it was making.
I reached into his pocket to get out his wallet, grabbed what i wanted, and left the house.
The whole event took probably 3 or 4 minutes.
I had hoped both were going to be quick and efficient.
I didn't want my mom to suffer, to die in horror, to die with the knowledge that her son did it (I didn't hurt our dog or cat, in case anyone was wondering about the animals).

Afterward, police said Casey then dialed 911 and told the dispatcher he'd shot two people.
The post was later taken down by Facebook. There was another Facebook post where Casey revealed that he wanted to take his own life so that he wouldn't "waste tax dollars" on a lengthy legal process.

Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, denies media reports claiming she refused paying lawyers that helped recover Abacha loot

Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, denies media reports claiming she refused paying lawyers that helped recover Abacha loot

Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, has denied media reports claiming she has refused to pay lawyers that have helped in the recovery of loots of former military leader, Sani Abacha stashed abroad. Read the statement below
The attention of the Honourable Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, has been drawn to false media reports of a “strongly-worded letter to the President” objecting to the payment of $16.9 million fees to two lawyers for the recovery of Abacha funds.
2. The Minister wishes to dissociate herself and the Federal Ministry of Finance from recent malicious and misleading media reports on the Abacha refunds. The Minister had at no time written any letter to the President or any member of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on the payment of lawyers for the Abacha recovery.
3. She also refuted the flawed media reports of controversy surrounding the Abacha recovery, disclosing that the sum of US$322,515,931.83 was received into a Special Account in the Central Bank of Nigeria on December 18, 2017 from the Swiss Government.
4. For the avoidance of doubt, there is no controversy concerning the recovery of the Abacha monies from the Swiss Government.

Man who was harassed by bribe-seeking SARS narrates his experience in detail

Man who was harassed by bribe-seeking SARS narrates his experience in detail

Immanuel James Ibe-Anyanwu who was harassed by SARS officials along Zenith Bank, Okota branch has taken to Facebook to narrate his experience in detail. He wrote; 
It was past 2pm yesterday and I was at Zenith Bank Okota Branch to submit a document prepared on my company letterhead. I was asked to edit a part of it and resubmit. Because I wanted to conclude the transaction same yesterday, I had to go look for a business center around to type in the edit. Across the bank was one and, as I walked towards it, a young, scruffy-looking man accosted me, saying he was a police officer. His superiors wanted to see me inside a bus waiting around, he said. He was slightly bearded and on mufti, so I was skeptical. I asked for his ID card and he unhooked it from his waist and showed me. The prints were tiny and blurred, so I reached out to collect it and read properly. “So you want to snatch my ID card”, he shouted.
He took from me the PLANEX-branded envelope containing plain letterheads and other documents, and walked towards the bus, asking me to come along. Right away I made a call to my brother, Ekene Okoro, and briefed him. By the time I got to the bus, the story had changed: that I snatched his ID card from him. They were about 7 armed men, and one of them started interrogating me. Why did I choose to use this branch of Zenith Bank instead of the one close to my office in Ikoyi? Where is the other director of PLANEX? Why was the document I was to edit not stamped with my company stamp? Dismissing all my answers, he said they would take me to my office in Ikoyi to confirm. That he knew people on that street and had just spoken to them, and they couldn’t identify me. Speak to my office landlady, I said. He ignored me.
At that point I stepped aside and called the Lagos PPRO and narrated my experience. He asked me to pass on the phone to them and they took the phone from me, cut the call, and seized the phone. I became scared and started inviting passers-by into the argument and people gathered. One man intervened and begged them a lot and they calmed down, though insisting that they would still take me away anyway. Then they asked to search my car, parked outside the bank premises and I let them. Finding nothing, they took my ID card and demanded my car key and car documents. I had to corner their leader to a side and beg him, telling him he was like a father to me and should appeal to his men. His men were almost going violent but he kept calming them down. He told me to go arrange some money and I told him I needed the phone to transfer money from the corporate account to my ATM account. I needed the car key too to get the ATM card. On my way to the ATM, the one who arrested me asked me how much I was going to withdraw. I told him N5,000 and he flared up.
At the ATM I called back the PPRO. “Don’t give them any money”, he said, promising to send down a band of policemen. I withdrew some money and ran into the banking hall instead, went straight to the bank toilet and hid. Then made an update on Facebook. My phone battery was on 2% and I needed to save it, in case the rescue came. I sat there in the toilet for close to two hours. By past 4pm, I feared the bank would soon close and called the PPRO again, who assured me his men were on the way. He asked me to put the CSO of the Branch on the line for him, since his men were being held up on the way. They spoke and he asked the CSO to put the bank mobile police unit on the line too for him to instruct them on what to do. But before the bank’s policeman could come speak to the PPRO on phone, the phone battery had gone flat.
I narrated everything to him, the Bank policeman. But he was skeptical, saying if I did nothing, SARS would not be after me. I learnt from the CSO that the SARS people actually came inside the bank to look for me while I was in the toilet, purporting to want to give me back my documents. The bank policeman now said I should leave the bank, that the bank was not the place for people to hide. So he eased me out of the bank and, outside where my car was parked, I noticed the number plates had been taken away. The SARS bus was no longer around so I assumed they had left.
I got into my car and plugged my phone desperate to reach people. As soon as I started the car and moved, the SARS bus came from nowhere and double-crossed me. I turned swiftly facing the bank gate and blocking it, hooting crazily to draw attention and for the bank security to let me in. The bank security, on the order of their skeptical policeman, refused me entry, leaving me out for SARS to devour. It is a branch I have frequented for over 10 years, visiting there almost weekly. SARS people jumped out of their bus and started banging on my car windows. One attempted to puncture the tyre but that superior asked him not to. My phone was still yet to come on, heightening my fear. It was the longest moment of my life, as I was surrounded by 7 armed policemen who had patiently waited for me for over 2 hours. They ordered me to wind down but I wouldn’t and a crowd began to gather. They stepped aside, speaking to the bank policeman. The bank policeman later came to me and asked me to wind down, that he had spoken to them, and that I should leave even outside the bank premises where all this was happening. The management had asked him to chase me away, he said, adding that the bank was not the place for me. Shouting through shut windows, I pleaded with him to let my phone come on so help could reach me. He threatened to use force on me if I didn’t leave that very minute. I steered out of the gate and parked in the outside parking lot, still locked up in the car.
And hunched over my steering and said a short prayer. I am useful to my country’s economy, to its civic space—legitimately, therefore this should not be happening.
They came back to me again, SARS, asking me to wind down, and I pretended to be making a phone call. One was impatient and wanted to smash the glass. Their superior who had been soft all along got angry and dumped the number plates and documents on my bonnet and stormed out. The others followed him, entered their bus, and they drove ahead and waited. I was scared that they were still waiting along the same road I was to take, so I remained in the car. The bank policeman came back again, fuming, banging on the car and urging me to leave. I had to take the opposite direction amid a slow-moving traffic, driving insanely cutting through the traffic until I found a free road which was in the opposite direction to my house. I fled, literally.
At that point my phone had come on. The PPRO and his deputy called respectively. They had been trying to reach me. Their men who were on the way also called me saying they had been unable to reach me since and were now around. For the next hour they all kept calling checking up on me. Even the Lagos SARS commandant called, apologetic. They all rose to the challenge and began to look for the erring officers. The response on social media had been overwhelming, from colleagues, friends and family. I was in shock. Still in shock: I have read stories of SARS tracing people home in the night and killing them and a part of me is worried. Later at night I learnt the SARS team had been identified and would be arrested today. Does that eclipse the possibility of a retaliation?
It is not a country to die for, I know. But I recognize that one is not protected by silence. Nor is there protection in the incubus of fear, in a cowardly surrender to the prosperity of evil. Giving them the money they asked for could perhaps have been an alternative to the current anxiety, but ransom guarantees nothing, except temporary relief. In my evolution as a journalist, writer and, above all, a human being for whom slavery is not, I would be ashamed of myself funding evil to walk free. Yet I’m neither courageous nor smart. I am, in the main, merely lucky. Lucky for social media, for the goodwill and love of family, friends and strangers alike, for all of you who stood for me. Lucky for the higher echelon of the Nigerian police—the PPRO, his deputy, the commissioner, Lagos SARS commandant—professionals who, without any meaningful leads, fished out the erring officers in hours. I am grateful to all of you, even as I remain fearless in my advocacy for a decent nation-space.

Decomposing body of Pastor discovered in bush five days after he was kidnapped by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Edo

Decomposing body of Pastor discovered in bush five days after he was kidnapped by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Edo

Gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen killed a certain Pastor Pius Eromosele of the Church of God Mission in the Ovia North -East Local Government Area of Edo State.
It was gathered that Eromosele was abducted by the gunmen while working on his farm at Odighi community on March 29.

The body of the deceased and that of another person were discovered in the bush by a search team comprising hunters and vigilantes on April 3.
According to the son of the deceased, Dr. Richard Eromosele, the killers had earlier demanded a ransom of N4m before the decomposing body was found.

"On March 29 , my mother called that she had been calling my father and that he didn ’t pick the calls. She later called that my father later picked and told her that he had been kidnapped by herdsmen on his farm," he said.
"The herdsmen did not use their phones. They were using my father’s phone and a phone of one of his workers . They demanded N4 m but we begged them that it was a holiday and we could not raise the money"
He also said two of his father’s employees ; Kingsley and Akpan, narrated how he was killed , after they managed to escape.
"I went to the police and they told me that I should call them whenever the herdsmen called for ransom payment. I did that but there was no response from the police. The two workers that escaped told us that the herdsmen told my father that he was one of those killing their cows. It was on Tuesday, after the police failed to find my father that I begged hunters and vigilantes to help me.
"It was during the search that we found my father. His skull was cut out with a cutlass while his hands were also cut. We want security agencies to protect farmers in Odighi.’’
The Edo State Commissioner of Police, Johnson Kokumo, who confirmed the incident said one person has been arrested one suspect in connection with the killing.
Speaking to newsmen,  Kokumo, dismissed reports that the late pastor was killed by Fulani herdsmen.  He described the incident as a case of kidnapping.
“One suspect was arrested and is currently undergoing interrogation. It was a clear case of kidnapping. I have not seen where herdsmen and farmers clash and the herdsmen demand ransom. Three people were kidnapped. Two of them escaped from the kidnappers’ camp,”
