Nigerian Catholic Church Crisis: Priests Fight Turns VIOLENT, Storms Parish With Guns And Thugs

The schism, which has been trailing the appointment and consecration of the new Bishop of Ahiara Catholic Diocese, Most Rev. Peter Okpalaeke, by the Papacy, took a more dangerous dimension weekend, as priests allegedly got entangled in what people described as a dirty battle.

Vanguard investigations revealed that Rev. Fr.Januarius Chima Ahaneku went to St. Brigid's Catholic Church, Nnarambia, at about 7.15p.m., following his posting to the parish by the Vicar General of the embattled Diocese, Rev. Fr. Clement Ebii.

While Fr. Ahaneku was accused of storming the parish with thugs and assaulting the resident priest, Rev. Fr. Marcellinus Nweke, Ahaneku, however, said he was there on legitimate posting.

Nweke confirmed that he had to alert the police and the people when his brother priest allegedly exhibited an act unbecoming of an ordained Catholic priest.

He said: "They started harassing us, using hammer and some iron bars to break the doors and gained entrance. Some of us even sustained injuries. I dislocated my left shoulder."

Continuing, Fr. Nweke alleged that the police recovered pump action rifle, double barrelled gun and an electric shocker from Fr. Ahaneku and his friends.

Fr. Ahaneku's story
In his own account, Fr. Ahaneku, who is a son of Nnarambia, said although he presented a letter from the Vicar General, Rev. Fr. Clement Ebii, deploying him to St. Brigid's Parish, as an Acting Parish Priest, he never attempted the use of violence as claimed by Nweke.

He explained that the men, who were arrested by the police as thugs merely accompanied him to the Parish, to assist him settle down with his belongings.
He said: "The Parish Priest left without the knowledge of the Vicar
General/Delegate of the Diocese. So, I was detailed to go there and take care of the souls of the parishioners. I did not go there with a thug at all."

Continuing, the obviously angry priest recalled that "when Fr. Nweke came out, we greeted each other and I explained my mission to him and he said he was not informed of the posting and insisted that the Vicar should call him.
"The Vicar General called him severally but he refused to pick his calls.
"I took him to my car and showed him my authority: the letter I was given.

After reading it, he said there was no trouble."

Continuing, the priest recalled that as he was trying to move his personal belongings into the parish house with the help of his friends, Fr. Nweke started making calls.

Ahaneku said: "They first raised false alarm to the police that some armed robbers invaded their house.

"In a matter of minutes, several people stormed the place. A lot of them were carrying machetes and other dangerous weapons.
"I wanted to leave in my vehicle but my brother priest stood in front of my car, insisting that I will not move an inch. In order not to smash him or commit any crime, I left the vehicle there," Fr. Ahaneku recounted.

The Sports Utility Vehicle, SUV, which Fr. Ahaneku drove to the parish was badly vandalized by the alleged angry youths and was still in the custody of the Church at press time.

Vicar-General's confirmation
Reacting also, the Vicar General of the Diocese, Rev. Fr. Ebii, however confirmed that Fr. Ahaneku had his approval to report to St. Brigid's Catholic Church.

He said: "Fr. Ahaneku was sent there officially to go and do pastoral work. He had a legal paper from me."Most Rev. Peter OkpalaekeMeanwhile, Imo State Police Command has appealed to the Administrator of Ahiara Diocese, who doubles as the Archbishop of Abuja Ecclesiastical Province, His Eminence, John Cardinal Onaiyekan, to find a lasting solution to the lingering crisis bedevilling Ahiara Diocese, since the death of Bishop Victor Chikwe.

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr. Andrew Enwerem, who made the passionate appeal, while reacting to the mayhem unleashed by some supposed parishioners in St. Brigid's Church, Nnarambia.

He said: "It is most shocking that priests can get to this level. The Catholic Church and its priests are supposed to show good examples for others to follow."

South Africa Returns The Seized $15m To Nigeria

The South African Ambassador to Nigeria, Lulu Mnguni, said in a news conference on Friday that the $15m earlier seized from some Nigerians by South African Government had been released to Nigeria. "South Africa's relation with Nigeria is priceless; it cannot be sold for $15m," he said.

It would be recalled that the South African Government had, on September 5th, 2014, seized $9.3m cash belonging to Nigeria and a month later seized another $5.7m, claiming that both funds were to be used for illegal purchase of arms.

Alas! the issue has been resolved and the money is back to Nigeria.

Governor Wada Of Kogi State Is Not Dead

by Yusuf Mohammed

The social media has been awash with statements about the governor's health. Some rumor peddlers have reported that Kogi State governor Idris Ichala Wada is in India receiving treatment for mental illness.

The trend took a dismal dimension on Wednesday evening with claims that Wada is dead.

However, according to recent reports, the governor is alive and he is not in India.  A source revealed that the governor is sick but it is not mental illness. The Governor of Kogi State, Captain Idris Wada is alive.

Sources close to the governor have confirmed this morning that he is alive.

A source from the government house in Lokoja (name withheld) has confirmed that the governor is actually sick but not the speculated mental illness. The source further claimed that the governor is not receiving medical attention in an Indian hospital but in a US hospital.

Efforts to reach more officials have proved abortive. Those who were reached pleaded for anonymity.

Tongues have been wagging because it is believed that the governor has not returned to the country since he traveled immediately after the Sallah celebration.

Moses Musa, a social commentator posted a comment on the face book page of 'Latest Kogi News' an online newspaper.

He said, "As at today he is the Governor of Kogi state, the people should be briefed on his whereabouts and state of health, in the absence of that, the rumour mills will take centre stage. Where are his information managers?

The comments by Kogi state citizens have been unpleasant since the governor took ill.

Abdulmannan Adaji from Kogi state said, "governor wada, I do not like you but I wish u well and I advice you to change your ways.

Nuhu Alhassan Suleiman said, "This is another Yaradua scenario."

Abubakar Rajab, a former PDP chieftain and now a member of the APC, lamented the negative comments coming form Kogi citizens and advised the people not to wish Wada bad no matter the differences.

He said, "Good news that the governor is alive. My people whatever our differences may be, we should not wish our fellow human being bad. It is so disheartening to hear the rumours people are carrying about concerning the health of the governor. I wish him a speedy recovery."

In a similar vein, Ocheja Christian a social commentator said, "I read with dismay the contents of some posts and comments on Kogi online groups about the governor of our dear state, it all boil down to the pains many feel about the governor, which on the surface seemed okay - but deep down it is repugnant to rejoice over the misfortune of others.

The governor like all mortals can't be immune to sickness, it is normal for him to be ill as we all do; it is disturbing to read some comments on this issue. I am an advocate of service to our people and will support if we criticize the governor on his policies with alarming regularity instead of going personal and wishing for constitutional crisis for a state as our.

Corpers Now Get N500 Daily Feeding Allowances From FG

                    

The federal government has allocated N500 as daily feeding allowance for members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). This was disclosed yesterday by the Director General of the NYSC, Brigadier-General Johnson Bamidele Olawumi.

He made the disclosure at a House of Representatives Committee on Public Petition investigative public hearing on the N4,000 online registration fee imposed on prospective corps members by the corps...but the question now is, "was there no feeding allowance before? If there was, how much was it? will this lead to an increase in the monthly allowee which is currently N19,800?"

Finally Discovered: A Way To Get Club-Goers To Drink More Responsibly


A new 'study' by Heineken finds that club goers are more likely to drink responsibly if they're being entertained through the night by a top quality DJ. 

By tallying the number of drinks served at the bar at one of Miami's most popular clubs, Mansion, Heineken researchers discovered that people drank about 41% fewer drinks when Dutch superstar DJ Armin van Buuren was behind the turntables than they did when an anonymous DJ performed the night before. 

The conclusion here is that the more dancing people do during the night, the less the total volume of alcohol consumed.

Female Student Caught With Her Sister's Husband



The way some girls act these days without considering the consequences of their action is a big cause for concern to enlightened minds. Her elder sister was nursing a baby and she thought the best way to help out is to be servicing the woman's husband. The source who sent the pics said it was the girl that suggested the illicit act to her sister's husband and the 'weak' man obliged.

The sister got information that her husband was always taking a young girl to a small hotel in Lagos and she stormed the place, only to catch her own sister in the act with her husband. See full pics:



Funny enough, the girl claimed that she was helping her sister so her husband wont go outside.


Nollywood Actor Jim Iyke Declares His Political Ambitions

jimm

Nollywood Actor Jim Iyke has revealed he’s nursing a political ambition. Speaking with the Daily Independent Newspaper,
Jim Iyke he has joined the Young Democratic Party as its Director General in the Diaspora.
He told the Us about his intentions, saying;
‘We just want to say enough is enough. It is time power and our policies shift hands to fresher minds, to stronger fortes, to people that are ready to move with the momentum of time, tide and changes. But it cannot be conceivable if you are saddled in that position for over two decades? How can you grow? How can you go with the tide of time? Biologically too, time will catch up with you because you are growing old in that position.
“Look at advanced countries of the world, and take a close look at people that have moved forward, these are people who have put things in place so that changes will be constant. Refreshment of minds, ideas, psychology, idiosyncrasies will be constant except for Nigeria.
“The same circle of people that governed us 20 years ago are the same people who are still ruling us, what are they still doing there? So many of them are in their 80s, grandfathers by all rights! Are they not tired? Suffering and smiling has become our motto, our slogan”, Iyke lamented.
“There are black men of strong background and strong voice abroad. We have them everywhere. There is a rippling effect, that whatsoever resonates here touches the whole world. This is the strongest economy, the most populous black nation in the world. You cannot say that what we are doing concerns Nigerians alone. It concerns Africa, in the weight of what we are doing, we are carrying everybody along.”
Jim Iyke said

Daughter Stoned To Death In ISIS VIDEO

                    Reuters video

A man and a woman have been stoned to death for adultery in separate executions in jihadist-controlled areas of Syria, a monitoring group reported on Tuesday.

The man was executed in Idlib province in an area controlled by Islamist groups including the Nusra Front, al Qaeda's official affiliate in Syria, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks violence on all sides of Syria's civil war.

It is the first documented case of a man being stoned to death for adultery since Syria descended into civil war in 2011 and hardline Islamic groups emerged as powerful players in areas that slipped from government control, the Observatory said.

The woman was executed in Hama province in an area controlled by Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot that has seized swathes of Syria and Iraq and is being targeted by U.S.-led air strikes, the Observatory said.

A video posted online appeared to show her execution. A bearded fighter is shown passing down the sentence in the presence of other gunmen and her father, who appears to approve of her execution. 

Her hands and feet are then tied with a rope and she is forced to kneel in a pit. Covered head to toe, she begins to pray out loud as large rocks are seen striking her body. The video shows the logo of Islamic State.

The two incidents, which Reuters could not independently verify, appear to be unrelated. 

The woman's execution was the third of its kind in Islamic State-run territories in Syria, according to the Observatory.

Islamic State controls around a third of Syria and Iraq after having acquired new territory with lightening speed earlier this year. It quickly established a fierce reputation by crucifying, beheading and carrying out public executions of anyone deemed a threat to its rule.

Islamic State routinely carries out sentences of lashing against men in territories it rules for offences that range from adultery and subversion to blasphemy and missing prayer time. 

In July, Islamic State stoned two women to death under similar circumstances to the Hama stoning. One was of a 26-year-old widow, according to the Observatory.

Syrian society is unaccustomed to sentences like stoning and lashing. For decades, the country was ruled by a government that implemented a mixture of Islamic and secular laws. Offences such as adultery were rarely prosecuted.

The fighter overseeing the woman's execution appears to lay the blame for her crime on her husband, suggesting he had been absent. He urges "all men to treat women well" before the stoning begins. 

"Do not leave women. Do not be absent from them for longer than the time period permitted (by Islamic law). Return to God, brothers. And take good care of women," he says.

At one point he addresses the woman as "honorable sister", and asks her for final words. "I advise every woman to protect her honor more than her life," she says. And I ask every man, before he marries off his daughter, to scrutinize her new marital environment. That’s all," she says in a faint voice.

It is not clear exactly when the video was shot, or how the woman was found guilty of adultery - a conviction that would require at least four witnesses according to Islamic law.

2012 MTN Ultimate Wonder Promo Miss Ebube Essien-Garricks Revealed How She Spent Her N64Million

Aww! Miss Ebube Essien-Garricks, who won the MTN Ultimate Wonder promo  (N64million) in 2012 has revealed how she spent the money in an exclusive chat with Ynaija....she now looks finer too! See excerpts and her new photos below:

ebube garricks birthday
Ebube at her 29th birthday celebration on the 3rd of October
How the ‘win’ was celebrated:
It was really an amazing thing that happened to me, I’m yet to get over the excitement.
Not any one can be lucky like I was and I am still very grateful to God. My family threw
me a party to celebrate but it was an in-house thing, it wasn’t an elaborate one, just private
 family celebration. We didn’t invite outsiders to avoid being kidnapped, lol.

You have been off the radar, why is that?
Yes and that’s because I am presently studying business information system in Malaysia.
I left Nigeria in May, 2013.
ebube garricks3
Why Malaysia?
Actually I wanted to go to Georgia but my ticket wasn’t ready by then, so I settled for here
 and I really like it here anyway.

But you were already studying at the Rivers State College of Health Science and Technology
Yes but I had to quit, I couldn’t go back to complete my studies because the whole
winning incident made me popular in school, everyone would point at me, try to be friends
with me and all….. I was known all over which the school and I had to leave
for security reasons, i didn’t feel safe.

After paying your tithe offering, what was the first thing you bought from the money?
I let it breath fresh air in the bank, then I bought lots of land…I didn’t acquire houses or cars
because that is not the main thing for now, moreover I’m not available to look over them
 so I settled for lands, it’s a safer investment. I would acquire the other properties with time.

And your parents?
I have settled my parents and I am taking good care of them but let me point out that
we were doing okay even before I won the money; we had our own family house before then too.

 Ebube Garricks
You didn’t go shopping at all…get new stuffs, change your wardrobe?
Yes I did. I changed my wardrobe, bought new stuffs for me and my family but I’m
 not a shopping freak.

What has changed about you since the win?
Nothing much. I am still the humble me, the person I used to be. The money doesn’t
 make me misbehave because God detests the proud.

You once said you will buy machines, work for yourself and be an employer of 
labour, have you fulfilled this yet?
Not really, plans change, and I am not in that field any more as I am studying something
else now but if God permits, then it will be done.

Let’s talk about your love life. After you won the money, you said you had lots of toasters
Hahahaha it gave me headache. They all came because of the money you know…
many of them got my contact from my sisters, they would call me to make empty promises,
 one of them even went as far as saying he’ll build a big house for my mum and
also take me abroad, imagine!
They went as far as calling to ask my parents if I am married…but it’s all good now,
since I relocated here, everything has died down.
I am now in a relationship and I will get married in due season.

Would you return to Nigeria after your studies or settle fully in Malaysia
I will only visit. I am working on being an international business woman, but don’t ask me
what I intend supplying, lol.

So have you exhausted all the N64 million?
Haba, no not really, I still have some left

Any advise to the Nigerian youths:
Youths should be patient and wait for their time, God’s time is the best, thank you!

Governor Fashola’s Aide, Folly Coker Fingered In Tiwa Savage’s Marital Trouble, His Ownership Of Mavin Records Unveiled


Ever since news broke out of marital crisis between Tiwa Savage and her husband, Teebillz, there have been may speculations as to the truth concerning the couple’s marriage. In a new twist, according to papermache, this is what’s really going on between the showbiz couple:Gov Fashola’s aide, Folorunsho Folarin-Coker aka Folly Coker has been fingered in Tiwa Savage’s marriage trouble (his ownership of Mavin Records unveiled + how he imposed Di-ja on the label)

A new twist has unfolded into the crisis rocking the 5 month-old marriage of singer, Tiwa Savage as a top aide of Governor Babatunde FasholaFolly Coker has been linked with the problems the new couple are facing.Paper Mache can authoritatively reveal that Folly Coker, the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Government on Central Business District owns Mavin Records and is instrumental to the overnight success of the record label. Sources divulged that Folly and Tiwa Savage had been an item for sometime and it was the affair that gave birth to the ownership of the label by the politician.


Insiders hinted that when D’banj pulled out of Mo’hit Records it was Folly Coker that came to the rescue of Tiwa and the rest of the team by investing some money to set up the Mavin Records and used Don Jazzy as the frontman of the business.


Information made available to Paper Mache had it that Tiwa Savage’s decision to marry her manager, Tunji Balogun did not go down well with her label financier, Folly who felt very bad that the marriage would signal an end to their romance.Tiwa Savage on her part was revealed to have used her marriage to even the score with her politician-lover who is also accused of sleeping with her record label-mate, Di-ja.

Folly was alleged to have met Di-ja whose real name is Hadiza Blel at a fashion event organised by his estranged wife, a popular fashion designer and daughter of a successful industrialist.Di-ja who is also a fashion designer is claimed to be a protege of Folly Coker’s ex wife, Folake and her dalliance with the politician got her a place in the record label as she was imposed on the label where she made her debut with the Dorobucci single and video.

Tiwa Savage’s constant text messages and chats with Folly Coker was said to have been one of the many sources of her marital problems as her husband doesn’t hide his disapproval whenever ‘Mr Folly’ calls or sends a message, a relationship his wife labelled ‘strictly official’.

Folly Coker who was a Deputy Chief of Staff to ex-Lagos Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is not new to controversy.

Asa And Lupita Nyong'o Are Now Best Of Friends


Nigerian soul singer, Bukola Elemide otherwise called Asa and Oscar winning actress, Lupita Nyong'o are now best of friends.

The duo took to Instagram a few hours ago to profess their admiration for each other.

Asa, who only recently released her third album, Bed of Stones, posted a picture of her self and the actress and wrote ‘Last night I met this beautiful lady. I love and admire you, Lupita Nyong'o  #inspired ‘No matter where you are from, your dreams are valid.’


Miss Nyong'o replied ‘Not only did I meet one of my favorite artists tonight, but I also learned she has a new album!!! #Asa #BedOfStone’ with same picture.

Janelle Monae’s Affair With Black And White




















Not many celebs can rock black and white with as much spunk and swag like funk/soul singer, Janelle Monae does. It may seem queer or weird that a trend setter would limit herself to two colours but Janelle’s monochrome genius is a style worthy of emulation as you’ll concur below.

The singer's minimalist approach to fashion finds her almost always in black and white, with an occasional pop of colour on the lips.

The colours may remain the same but she changes her look awesome accessories here and there; chain belt, suspenders which transform her from a classic white button-down and black pant combo into refined borrowed-from-the-boyfriend chic.

 

She adds eye catching bits like a skinny tie, a sparkling brooch and lest we forget her epic graphic oxfords ; an incredible menswear inspired addition the singer is fond of spotting.

Janelle gives a new look to military style and it’s in all black.

Whether on the red carpet or on stage Monae never fails to give us more than a flash from her ever growing white and black affair.
