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.

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

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.”

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.

The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, on Friday dismissed the petition filed by the Action Alliance’s (AA) candidate in the March 18, 2023 election, Mr Babatunde Ajala, against Governor Seyi Makinde’s victory.

The three-man tribunal, led by Justice Ejiro Emudainohwu, in a unanimous ruling dismissed the petition and awarded a cost of N600,000 against him.

The tribunal awarded a cost of N100,000 in favour of INEC, and N250,000 each in favour of Governor Makinde and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In the petition, INEC was the first responded, while Governor Seyi Makinde was the second respondent. The PDP was the third respondent.

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Otunba Kunle Kalajaiye, represented Governor Makinde, while Mr. Isiaka Olagunju (SAN) was the counsel for PDP.

Counsel to AA and its candidate, Etibo Orowo King, had informed the tribunal that the party and its candidate had decided to discontinue the case. He then urged the tribunal to strike out the case in the interest of the state.

He said, “My prayer is for the cancellation of the result of the election. But, on further reevaluation, we decided to discontinue the case in the interest of peace and tranquility.”

But Counsel to the governor urged the tribunal to dismiss the case.

He said, “The petitioner asked that the case be struck out. We want the case to be dismissed. It is a petition that is dead on arrival.”

The PDP counsel aligned himself with the position of Otunba Kalejaiye. The tribunal subsequently dismissed the petition.

Speaking with journalists after the judgment, Kalejaiye said: “It was the final end of the petition brought by Action Alliance against the emergence of Governor Seyi Makinde in the March 18 election.

The petition was essentially to ask for a rerun of the election on the basis that the candidate that was cleared for the election was not the candidate that was filled by the party.

The petition was filed, and we responded to it, only for us to come this morning and find out that the party and the candidates claimed that they had looked at the petition again and they were not sure that they would succeed and they brought an application to withdraw the petition.

“We are convinced that it was when they saw our response to the petition that they made up their minds on the un-viability of the petition because we attached 18 grounds to our response and that culminated into what happened today.t The tribunal has dismissed the petition and has awarded cost against Action Alliance (AA).

“But there is one thing that is very clear which I made known to the tribunal. Candidates and political parties who performed abysmally in an election should not be allowed to come to court to waste judicial time. Where a political party only scored 387 votes and challenged a person who scored 563, 617 votes in all the 33 local governments is a waste of judicial time.

“The Electoral Act needs to be amended to create a threshold that if you have not scored at least a quarter of all the total votes cast in a state you should not come to the election tribunal. The three judges left their jurisdictions to come and sit for a petition that is dead on arrival. So, only serious petitioners will have access to court. This is a call for the amendment of Electoral Act.”

A Deputy Superintendent of Police, Jerry Ogunsakin, was on Thursday arraigned before the Federal High Court, in Lagos for alleged unlawful conversion of N128m.

The defendant is facing three counts of conspiracy, obtaining by false pretence and unlawful conversion preferred against him by the Special Fraud Unit.

The police prosecutor, Chukwu Agwu, told Justice Chukwuejekwu Aneke that the defendant committed the offences on November 15, 2022.

He said the defendant conspired with five people, Ogbu Patricia aka Lamba, Michael Babatunde aka Orija, Bolaji Sobande aka Barrister Onifade, Peter Ben and Idris Wada aka Coker, who are all at large.

The prosecutor told the court that the defendant connived with others at large and fraudulently obtained N128m from a businessman, Esomonu Everest, under the guise that they have United States dollars to sell.

Ogunsakin was also accused of converting the N128m to his personal use.

However, the policeman pleaded not guilty to the charges.
