A Nigerian man has reportedly been in tears over the past weekend, following the sudden lost his wife of over 7 years to his church pastor.

A Twitter user Tolani Baj, who identified the man as his tailor, said the pastor was always visiting the couple’s home under the guise that they were under some spiritual curse which requires prayers and fasting.

Unknown to the tailor, the man of God was in his household for an ulterior motive.

The man was shocked when it emerged that his wife was already pregnant for the pastor.

As if that was not enough heartbreak for him, the lady moved out of her matrimonial home to fully settle down with the spiritual leader.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Monday secured conviction of four persons for selling the e-PIN for the 2020 unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME) above N4,700 .

A pastor of one of the new generation churches, Mr. Ujaku Emem Samuel, his wife, Mrs. Peace; Mr. Opulani Sunupe and Mr. Umar Musa Sa’adu, were convicted on Monday by a Magistrate Court sitting in Lafia, Nasarawa State.

According to a statement by JAMB’s Head of Information, the four persons pleaded guilty to the offence.

They were sentenced to three years in prison each.

The Federal Government had pegged the sale of 2020,UTME/DE application documents at N3, 500, reading text for N500 and N700 for computer based test centres (CBT) totalling N4, 700.

The statement reads: “No fewer than four persons who are agents of accredited sale outlets arrested by officers of NSCDC, Nasarawa State Command for selling the ongoing 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) application documents above the prescribed price of N4000 have been sentenced to three years in prison each.

“Before the commencement of the sale of 2020,UTME/DE application documents on 13th January 2020 the sale outlets and their agents were adequately briefed by the Board on the cost and procedures for vending the ePINs. The price of the ePINS was fixed at N3500 while that of the Reading Text was N500 totalling N4000.

“A commission of N210 from the N3500 due to the Board is given to the sale outlets as a commission on each pin sold to motivate them as well as dissuade them from exploiting candidates.

“It would be recalled that the Federal Government, in a bid to lessen the burden on parents, had directed that the UTME application documents be sold at N3500 down from N5000 charged earlier.

“Therefore, it is rather unfortunate that in spite of all the warnings and appeals as well as the offer of a fat commission by the Board, some sale agents still deemed it fit to test the resolve of the Board and the Federal Government by doing the contrary.

“This conviction is only the first in the series of ongoing prosecution of cases in several courts of law across the country, and, as such, many more convictions are being expected in due course.

“All sale outlets and their agents charged with the vending of the ePINs are hereby warned, in their own interest, to desist from engaging in sharp practices or face the consequences.

“Anyone who sells the ePINs above the regulated price would certainly, be arrested and prosecuted as each ePIN comes with a unique identifier for ease of tracking.

“Similarly, candidates are also warned to desist from paying more than the prescribed price as they can be culpable of aiding and abetting corrupt acts.

“The Board also wish to inform the general public that it welcomes credible and actionable reports of persons or centres exploiting candidates by selling above the regulated price.”

What was meant to be an atmosphere of joy and romance, quickly turned sour when a pastor denied a man the opportunity of proposing to his girlfriend during a wedding event in the church.

Apparently, the young man has been dating his pastor’s daughter for some time now and finally decided to propose to her in an ongoing wedding ceremony that sees the girlfriend as one of the bridesmaid.

In the church filled with members, the young man knelt down to propose to his lover who was adorned in a white gown, only to be stopped by the pastor who also doubles as the girl’s father.

The pastor insisted that the boyfriend was supposed to come see him before proposing to his daughter because he was not aware of the relationship.

“Don’t do that, don’t that, she’s my daughter, sorry, I am not aware of the relationship, I am not embarrassing you if you have interest in my daughter, come and see me” the pastor said.

Prophet Sunday Adelaja of a white garment church in Iwaya, Ijebu-Ife, Ogun State, has been arrested by police for allegedly impregnating a 16-year-old girl.

The 40-year-old cleric, who is reportedly married to two wives, allegedly defiled the Junior Secondary School 3 pupil twice, resulting in the pregnancy.

Adelaja was said to have invited the young girl to his house on the pretext that he wanted to ask her some questions, but molested her instead.

The girl said Adelaja threatened her not to reveal ‘their secret’ to anybody and that she should make herself available to him on demand.

She said about one week after the first encounter, the pastor accosted her while she was running an errand for her mother and took her to his house for another round of sex.

The pupil explained that about two weeks ago, her mother noticed some changes in her and took her to a hospital for a test. The result reportedly confirmed that she was five months pregnant. She said:

“My parents were in a meeting at the palace that day when the pastor asked me to come. He said he wanted to ask me something and took me to his second house. When we got there, I asked him what our mission was and he said I should be patient. He then shut the door and pushed me on the bed.

“I tried to struggle with him but he overpowered me. After he had sex with me, he told me not to tell anyone. One week after, he stopped me along the road, took me to his house and had sex with me again.

“Some weeks ago, my mother was worried about how I was behaving and she took me to hospital. It was confirmed there that I am pregnant. The pastor was the only person that had sex with me and he didn’t deny it.”

The father of the victim, who identified himself simply as Soliu, stated that he was shocked when he learnt that it was Adelaja, who impregnated his daughter.

He said the suspect confessed to the crime, but claimed he intended to marry the girl.

The pastor, according to the victims father, promised to provide N2,000 on a daily basis for the welfare of the girl.

“Her mother was afraid to tell me she is pregnant. She (the mother) went to inform my brother and a friend’s father who came to break the news to me last Tuesday. I was shocked when they told me it was Pastor Adelaja who impregnated my daughter. This is somebody who already has two wives.

“Through a friend, we took the case to a human rights group and it was reported at the Ijebu-Ife Police Station on Thursday, December 5. My child is still going to school; why should he contemplate marrying her?”

The representative of Advocate for Children and Vulnerable Persons Network of Nigeria, the rights group monitoring the case, Mr Adeyemi Akin-Akala, said the incident caused pandemonium in the community as angry youths attacked Adelaja’s church. He said:

“The youths pasted a notice on the church entrance that no one should enter the premises. Apparently, the prophet was at large when the youths got to the church and out of anger they destroyed the church walls, which led to the arrest of four of them. The perpetrator (Adelaja) then came out of hiding to the police station.

“A medical test was conducted on the girl at Ijebu-Ife General Hospital and the matter was later transferred to the police gender unit in Abeokuta.”

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the case, adding that investigation was ongoing.

Anambra State Police Command has arrested and paraded the General Overseer of Mount Zion Ministries, in Obosi, Pastor Chukwudi Chukwumezie, also known as Agudo Jesus for raping a 15-year-old senior secondary one (SS1) student.

The pastor was alleged to have lured the minor to his church, with the prophecy that she had a bright future that was hindered by evil spirits.

“On 24th September 2019, we got a report from a woman in Obosi police station that the pastor of Mountain Zion Ministry, Obosi had an unlawful canal knowledge of her daughter.
“Police officers went to the scene, inspected it and victim was rushed to hospital and medical report revealed that her vagina was penetrated and laceration of the hymen of the victim occurred.
“Police went to the hotel and the evidence seen at the hotel corresponded with what the victim told the police.”

The 15-year-old victim said she had been lured by the pastor into his car, after conducting a deliverance session on her.

“I didn’t know what happened immediately I entered his car, but I regained consciousness in a room, and I was naked, and the pastor was on top of me, and there was blood in my private part.”

Mother of the victim, Mrs Edith Idika, also confirmed that her daughter was raped. She said she had visited the pastor with her daughter, when he told her she needed to under go deliverance.

“I sent my daughter there, especially as the pastor had said that my daughter had bright future, but had something covering her. He even said he was ready to train her for us.”

The suspect, however, denied the allegations, saying she only prayed for the girl, and since she was the last person to leave the church, he decided to drop her at her house, but sped past her house.

“When I asked her, she said I had passed her house, so I stopped at Nkwo ATM point since I had to withdraw money to pay transportation for our members who were going to the mountain.”

He denied having canal knowledge of the minor, insisting that the girl was being used to set him up by another pastor, who was operating at Obosi.

Lagos State Police Command , on Tuesday, arraigned the pastor of The Life House Ministry, Ojo Barracks, Benjamin Akinsanya, before the Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Igbosere, over attempted murder.

Police said Pastor Akinsanya allegedly sent a six-man gang of suspected assassins to kill a female Pastor, Janet Ogunshola, for becoming more popular than him in church ministry in the Ojo area of the state.

Akinsanya was arraigned alongside Darlington Orji and Liberty Elvis on five counts bordering on attempted murder and belonging to an unlawful society, the Aiye Confraternity.

Akinsanya allegedly paid the suspects N500,000 to terminate the life of Ogunshola, who is the pastor of the Glorious Chapel Ministry on Adeleye Street, Ojo, so as to prevent her from becoming more popular than him.

Following the petition, the police arrested Akinsanya, who later led the operatives to arrest two of his accomplices, while the others escaped.

The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The presiding magistrate, A. A. Famobiwo, admitted the defendants to bail in the sum of N100,000 each with two sureties each in like sum and ordered that they remain in the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Service till the perfection of their bail conditions. He adjourned the matter till December 12, 2019.

Super Falcons: Pastor Blames ‘Evil Spirit’ For Wrong Prophecy

Popular Nigerian pastor, Rev. Simeon Ononogbu who predicted Super Falcons reaching the last four of the ongoing FIFA Women World Cup in France has blamed “Evil Spirit” for the wrong prophecy.

Naijaparry reported that the Super Falcons were thrashed by German ladies 3-0 as the African champions were bundled out of the 2019 FIFA World Cup in France.

The Ebonyi-based Pastor, however, solicits for the understanding of Nigerians on the failed prophecy, noting that he will be more careful in future prophecies.

“It is a pity that the prediction on the Falcons failed which means that it was not a revelation from God.

“We have so many spirits that can deceive people and if we are not careful, we will make mistakes such as this.

“The Bible says that some spirits at times, transform into angels of light to talk to us.

“We have “fallen’’ spirits that deceive the children of God because we are humans and weaker than the other spirits,” he said.

“At times when we don’t interpret properly, we will have problems out of it and this can also be seen as a wrong interpretation,” he said.

“This particular interpretation was clearer than that of the Falcons and we should wait till the end of the competition for its fulfillment,” he said.

Ononogbu, urged Nigerians not to judge him with the failed prophecy as he had correctly made eight-significant prophecies which were fulfilled.

“I earlier predicted the visit of Rev, Uma Ukpai to Ebonyi and those who refused to heed the directive on the venue saw the number of people that died,” he said.

An armed robber was killed and three others wounded, yesterday, when men of the Imo State police command engaged them in a shootout at Orji, Owerri.

Naijaparry learnt that the four-member gang had trailed one Pastor G.E Nsofor of Holiness Evangelist Church Amankuta Mbieri, who had gone to a bank.

However, on noticing the he was being trailed, the pastor ran to a nearby police station, but the robbers were undeterred.

They, however got more than they bargained for, as men of the Orji police station opened fire on them. One of the robbers was gunned down while others escaped with gunshot wounds.
