Eagle’s News reports that The Methodist Church Nigeria Prelate, His Eminence Samuel Kanu Uche, have narrated his near death experience in the hands of kidnappers tribune online has learned.

PRELATE of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr Sam Uche, on Tuesday confirmed that the people who abducted him, a bishop of the church and his chaplain collected N100 million as ransom before they were released. 

The Prelate was kidnapped alongside the Bishop of Owerri Diocese, Reverend Dennis Mark, and his chaplain last Sunday on their way from a church programme in Okigwe, Imo State to Isuochi in Umu Nneochi Local Government Area of Abia State. 

They were however released on Monday after spending a day with the abductors. Recounting his experience at a press conference at the Hoare’s Memorial Methodist Church, Yaba, in Lagos on Tuesday, the cleric said the church paid N100 million to the abductors, adding that the money was arranged in five sacks of N20 million in each sack. 

The Prelate also said that neither the federal, state governments nor even security operatives made efforts to secure his release.

Meanwhile, a full story of how how the kidnapping experience went as gathered from All Facts Newspaper reads:

“It has been reported that the Prelate alongside the Bishop of Owerri Diocese, Rt. Rev. Dennis Mark and the Prelate’s chaplain were on Sunday, kidnapped in Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia state.

“Narrating his experience in a Press conference held at Methodist church yaba, Lagos state and monitored by All Facts Newspaper, the clergyman said their abductors were fulanis alleging that some personnel of the Nigerian Army from Fulani extraction were aiding the kidnappers in their activities.

In his word;

“these people came out from the bush;they divided themselves into 3 places; some people fired at us and there was another group in front to make sure that we didn’t run away; they fired shots at our vehicle and eventually, they abducted 3 of us.

“The communication man of the church was able to escape, the driver was able to escape; the abducted me, the bishop of Owerri and my chaplain and they took us to the bush and were torturing us. It was in the process of that torture that I hit my right eye on a tree. Even when blood was flowing and I was soaking my eyes with a handkerchief, they didn’t feel like anything happened.

“All they said was that we should follow them; that they were not actually against Nigerian citizens but against the government, that the government is a bad government.

“they are Fulani boys; all the 8 are fulanis; they said the day they will see the president or any of his representatives they will chew him raw; that he is their brother but he has disappointed them and has disappointed Nigeria.

” I said even though am part of government, am a church man am not a government official; they said okay, that is what have saved you, we would have killed you out-rightly without asking for any ransom but now that you are a church man, lets go inside the bush.

“I trekked up-to 15 kilometers but I knew that we were rigmaroling, going up going down and eventually at 11pm they said okay now we can negotiate; each of us will pay N50million and we are going to pay N150million. I thought it was a joke; I said we were going to pay 10million and they said what? Don’t say that; they lifted up their knife to cut me,I said please hold on.”

According to the clergy, the leader of the group is about 35 years while the others are about 18.

He said they had taken his rings, chain, took the money they had on them and insisted on 150 million ransom.

The clergy said the abductors came down to 100million ransom, warning that if they negotiate, they would be killed.

“I said okay. We will pay you N100 million. After some time, they said where is the money and I said this is Sunday night how can we get money this night and you know that there is this sit at home in igbo land. We cant afford the money now be patient till morning, we will make contacts.”

He said they lost patient, laid bishop Dennis Mark down, raised a knife to cut him, while another pointed a gun at him (prelate) to show that they were serious,

“I told them we will raise the money for you. But the irony of it, where they were situated, the soldiers all of Fulani extraction, Nigerian soldiers, they were there at Lomara junction and this boys were going behind them. Meanwhile they kept their cows somewhere, numbering about 200.

He said some people were taking care of the cows while the abductors were parading them around the bush until they settled at a place,

“they said when are you bring the money? I said by 12 noon, I will call the people i’ve contacted whether the money had been raised and I called them, they said that they are gathering the money and they heard it because they said I will use my phone to talk, they cant use their phone, they don’t want to be tracked

“their leader was born in igbo land but his parents have died. He said he was born around Umuahia Amuzukwu and his father was a cow dealer, the boy understood igbo”

He said the leader threatened to kill them if they informed security operatives when they had raised N100million.

The leader asked them to buy 5 ghana must go bags and put N20million in each bag. They left to pick the ransom while four others waited on them with guns.

“around 5;30pm, the youngest boy who I think is a younger brother to their commander said oga congratulations you are free you can go now. We have got our money, you can go. Let me show you the road.

“they took us to old road, where they wrote welcome to Imo’ and ‘goodbye from Abia”.

“they told us that after buying enough weapons, they are going to bring all those people that were driven away from zamfara, katsina, sambisa forest that they are all coming to locate themselves in igbo land and deal with us.

“he said do you know Ibadan expressway? We are in all the bush there , we are also in the south south, we are waiting for the slightest signal we will finish you people and take over this land. They claimed that Nigeria belong to Fulani.

The priest maintained that military personnel’s of Fulani extraction were aiding the kidnappers who disguise as herders in the daytime but are kidnappers at night.

He called on the government to take a decisive action ‘other wise what is happening in the north will be a child’s play”

On how they picked up the ransom, he said the terrorists came to the pick up spot with a truck without a number plate.

He stated that all efforts made to ensure that he is released was the effort of the Methodist church and her members and not security personnel nor government.

“Resign Now, You’re Unfit To Be PDP Nat’l Chair” -Clark To Ayu

Eagle’s Sight News reports that a prominent PDP chieftian ,elder stateman and Injaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark,has called on the party’s national chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, to resign from office without further delay.

This comes following the outcome of the presidential primary election of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), elder

According to Clark, in a statement made available to Journalists in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital on Tuesday, said Ayu has proven to be unfit to be the PDP national chairman.

The elder statesman, who is also the leader of Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), according to leadership reports, said despite the efforts of the Convention Planning Committee, outcome of the primary election leaves much to be desired.

The statement reads in part: “I decided to issue this Press Release because of the worrying occurrences in our polity vis-a-vis the dappled Party Primaries being conducted, across the Country; the reported outrageous financial inducements of delegates and the cynical dollarization of the electoral process.

“These happenings give strong warnings of, more likely, deleterious outcomes of the 2023 General Elections, mainly the Presidential, and their aftermaths.

“Most disturbing is what happened at the Special National Convention of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in Abuja, on Saturday, 28th May 2022. I followed the live broadcasts of the proceedings, keenly, until about 12.30 am on Sunday, the 29th.

CAN Disowns Pastor Who Can Take Members To Heaven For 310k

CAN Disowns Pastor Who Can Take Members To Heaven For 310k

The Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN ) in Kaduna State Chapter has disowned one Pastor Ade Abraham who offered to take his members to heaven if they pay a fee of N310,000 only.

Rev John Joseph Hayab, Chairman of CAN in Kaduna State, said even though Pastor Ade’s offer of a ticket to heaven was cheaper than the ransom Kaduna bandits asked their victims, sadly, CAN has not found anyone who knows the location of the said church or established a church in Kaduna town with that name or in any local government areas in the state.

According to Hayab in a statement on Tuesday, ” the faceless character like Ade Abraham can easily give the faith of the community a bad name, especially that CAN cannot trace his whereabouts or find any useful information about his being in Kaduna state.”

“Is it possible that Ade Abraham before becoming spiritual had lived in Kaduna or did he come to Kaduna for a visit? How can we have such a pastor and nobody knows him only for us to read about his drama in the media whereas the journalists in Kaduna do not have this information?” 

“CAN Kaduna State appeals to whosoever knows pastor Ade Abraham or the location of a church in Kaduna linked to the alleged person to furnish our association with the information so that we could work with security agencies to prevent what could further compound the security challenges faced in the state”.

CAN will not decide what sermon her priests should preach but CAN will not hesitate to expose fake preachers when she finds one, especially when the sermon contradicts the teachings contained in the Holy Scriptures. “

CAN, therefore, calls for a proper investigation of Pastor Ade Abraham’s identity, and the location of his ministry to put the record straight to avoid creating panic and misleading the public”.

“If Pastor Ade Abraham’s camp is in Ekiti and the sacred place where God is coming to rapture those who have paid their rapture fees, why is Kaduna in the story or does he have another strip that the rapture will happen in Kaduna?”

CAN wish to advise the Christian faith not to rush into accepting every kind of teaching without first studying the Scriptures to understand if what the preacher says is true like the Berean believers who studied the Scriptures, day and night, to confirm what the Apostle Paul was saying was true.May God deliver us from unholy preachers in Jesus’ name,” he said.”

The opinion personally forwarded to Eaglesighttnews news reads,

“Among these visionary women are one particular and prominent PDP Chieftain, Mrs Toyin Balogun who is vying for Ibadan North House of Representatives post under the platform of our great party, PDP.

“This advocacy is in support of her representation because she is capable..

“We’ve seen many Representatives in recent past that are just bench warmers in the chamber .. .. no meaningful ideas to contribute on national issues and greediness doesn’t allow them to know the right things to do for their constituencies as well. Such representatives are not idle and should not be allowed any longer.

“She is a dedicated politician with fear of God and that is reflecting in humility and her respectful manner.

“We are imploring good people of Ibadan North party leadership and our able Principal GSM to look towards putting round peg in round hole .

“If we are to settle resolve amicably among many men, capable gladiators that are vying for the same post within this same constituency, Ibadan North, the best way to go is to allow this vibrant woman, Mrs Toyin Balogun to score the goal for the men .

BESDA: Oyo Inaugurates Environmental Safeguard Team for Out-of-School Children

BESDA: Oyo Inaugurates Environmental Safeguard Team for Out-of-School Children

The Oyo State Government has inaugurated Environmental and Social Safeguard teams in the State, with an aim to ensure that out-of-school children captured and re-enrolled in the Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA) programme are taught in child-friendly environments without any form of threat.

Speaking at a 2-day orientation training for the newly constituted local environmental and social safeguard teams in Ibadan, the Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (OYOSUBEB), Dr. Nureni Adeniran outlined that, part of the team’s priorities under supervision of the board is to strategize to consolidate on the gains of ongoing Better Education Service Delivery for All, BESDA programme in Oyo State.

Adeniran listed some of the priorities of the team to include promotion of children’s right in the locality; report cases of any form of child abuse in schools; report adults vulnerable to radicalization and enhance compliance to safeguarding procedures and effective use of Grievance Redress Mechanism boxes, among others.

He said the members selected across the 21 BESDA Focus Local Government Areas, will help reduce adverse socio-environmental impact that may arise in the implementation of development projects.

The OYOSUBEB Boss hinted that the State Government hopes to motivate and retain “these innocent children into the formal school system for a functional education”, emphasizing an all-inclusive participation in the educational sector.

Dr. Adeniran charged members of the team to face the challenges ahead with courage, sincerity of purpose, so as to merit and foster the high expectation of the people.

“The idea of Environmental and Social Safeguards was conceived in BESDA as an operational procedure designed to mitigate and minimize adverse environmental and social impact that may arise in the implementation of development projects. Environmental and Social Safeguards also have pro-active dimensions to try to increase chances that development projects deliver better outcomes for people and the environment”, he said.

“Your assignment demands a high sense of responsibility, a large heart, total loyalty to your communities, local governments, the Board, the State and Nigeria, as a whole”.

Speaking further, Adeniran said, “We see you as leaders in your assigned duties. We therefore expect you to discharge your duties with a good sense of judgement, strong will and dedication”.

He therefore reiterated that Oyo State Government, under the leadership of Governor Seyi Makinde is committed to ensuring that out-of-school children in the State are reduced to the barest minimum, as they access qualitative education.

Emefiele’s Replacement:Two Name Suggestions Emerge For CBN Governor As President Tinubu Ponders

Tinubu Ponders On Two Name Suggestions For CBN Gov, Emefiele’s Replacement
Tinubu Ponders On Two Name Suggestions For CBN Gov, Emefiele’s Replacement

Two financial experts have been suggested to President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as possible replacements for the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele.

recalls that Emefiele became CBN governor on June 4, 2014. He has retained the position for about nine years and may vacate the position in a few days.

Also, due to a series of controversies following the implementation of the Naira swap policy during the 2023 electioneering period, many stakeholders and top government officials have been calling for his immediate sack and replacement.

Speaking during a recent interview with Arise Television, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Olisa Agbakoba, urged the newly sworn-in president of Nigeria, Tinubu to immediately replace Emefiele with either the Chairman of Fidelity Bank Nigeria, Mustafa Chike-Obi, or the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Citibank Nigeria, Yemi Cardoso.

Agbakoba also admonished Tinubu to without further hesitation, appoint his cabinet, stressing that the Nigerian leader must appoint only good people in his cabinet.

He said: “We need to talk about a limited government. The government is too big; he needs to have good people.

“The timeline for an appointment is absolutely today. Today, I will think he should be making critical appointments, I will just give a couple of names: Mustafa Chike-Obi or Dr. Yemi Cardoso.”

Agbakoba also charged Tinubu to unbundle the Transport Ministry into four sub-ministries. He noted that the new Transport Ministry should comprise rail, road, shipping, and air.

“Works should seize to be a ministry and they should go onto transport ministry.

“The challenge for Tinubu will be to name at least four or five critical ministers, because there is no time to waste,” the SAN noted.

Details Of Meeting Between Tinubu, Emefiele, Kyari Surfaces

Meanwhile, details of the meeting between President Tinubu, CBN governor, Emefiele and the Group Chief Executive Officer of Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Mele Kyari, have surfaced.

Naija News recalls that Tinubu had met with Emefiele and Kyari on Tuesday on his first day in office in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Sources from the presidency, however, told journalists that their discussion was centred around the removal of the fuel subsidy.

Tinubu, during his inaugural speech on May 29, announced that fuel subsidy was gone, as it was not provided for in the 2023 budget.

However, sources from the presidency have stated that the removal of the petrol subsidy will no longer be immediate.

He said, “For us, with all sincerity, I think it is time to engage and ensure that we are proactive, irrespective of what is coming from the federal level. We are already prepared for it here and we can run our own programmes.

“Yes, the fuel subsidy removal is going to affect all of us but we do have control over certain things in Oyo State, and one of these is to be proactive and engage ourselves. They may call for strike or certain actions at the federal level but the labour leaders in Oyo State must be aware of our own situation.

“So, we must appreciate the fact that our economy is fragile. We must be proactive and set the tone without prejudice to whatever negotiation that is happening at the federal level.”

At the meeting attended by Oyo State chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Kayode Martins and his Trade Union Congress counterpart, Olatunbosun Olabiyi, the governor also said, “I can say it to the whole world that in Oyo State there is no trust deficit between the government and labour leaders. It actually goes both ways. If we agree on what to do, I don’t look back, and if you have my commitment on anything, you should not look back. Whatever that is happening at the national level should not create any trust deficit between us. So, I welcome you all to Omituntun 2.0.”

The Governor also seized the opportunity to express his appreciation to the Labour leaders for their support during his first term in office.

In his reaction, the NLC chairman said minimum wage review was overdue. He then called on the state government to work towards its quick realization.
