Wife of the secretary to the Ondo State government, Mrs Jumoke Abegunde today Wednesday put smile on the faces of many pupils in the primary schools in Owo Ondo State with the distribution of school uniforms to many of them.

The distribution of uniforms which is part of her efforts to give back to the society that has given her so much, was Carried out under the name of her recently unveiled pet project Icare.

The pupils that benefited from the project are pupils without uniforms and those with old ones, which constitutes more than half of the entire population of the schools visited.

The schools visited were st Patrick's primary school, Adeolu Nursery and primary school, St Paul's primary school and CAC primary school ijebu owo.She had her primary education at the first two schools visited.

While commenting on the event, mrs Abegunde explained that one of the sight she hates to see is school children, dressed in rags because it reduces the self esteem of most of the pupils.

She also recalled that while she was a pupil at st Patrick's primary school most of her friends came to school in tattered school uniforms.

"The level of humanity in a society is measured by how much love it shows to the vulnerable. It is not good to have a wardrobe full of clothes while others go about in rags"she explained

"Nothing gives me Joy more than giving. Giving to the needy is more important than mere religion"she asserted

She urged other well meaning Nigerians to rise up and do something to help the poor in the society as it brings about physical and psychological peace.

“It Is Wrong For Churches To Take Holy Communion In The Morning” – Pastor Adeboye

General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has created fresh controversy on taking of the Holy Communion, saying it is an aberration for churches to take it during the day time.
Almost all churches in Nigeria and all over the world take the Lord Supper (Holy Communion) during service time in the day.
But Adeboye said whenever he attended other churches, he always desisted from taking the Lord’s Supper because it is wrong.
Speaking at the Holy Communion service at the just-concluded 67th convention of the church at the new auditorium at the Redemption Camp, Adeboye, who preached on the importance of the Holy Communion in line with the theme of the convention which is “And God Said,” pointed out that “the first time the Passover was taken in the Bible, it was taken in the night on the eve of the Israelites freedom from Egypt. Jesus also took it in the night with his disciples.”
According to him, whenever he is invited to some churches and they were serving Holy Communion in the day, he would decline taking by simply stating: “I am fasting.”
Adeboye posited that taking of the Holy Communion at night is symbolic, adding that “Tears may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning. The night period is symbolic. It means the end of sorrow. It means the end of suffering. It means the end of stagnation. The supper is taken in the night and not in the day.”
He explained further the Holy Communion is a serious matter and should not be taken unworthily.
“Many are eating it unworthily that is why they are experiencing so many things they should not experience. You can’t come to the Lord’s Table and bear grudges and harbor hatred in your heart against your brother or sister. You will be doing yourself a great harm,”

Dear Mandela,
As the whole world celebrates your life and time today,l wish to thank you for all you did for us in Africa.
You came and you changed the narratives.You became our source of pride and a symbol of freedom for every African.

The 27 years you spent in prison proofed that Africans can stand and fight for what they believe to be true.
When you ruled for just a term and decided to go home, the world began to realize that not all Africans are power hungry.
You became a symbol of African unity. You became a rallying point for all of us.

My country did not seat on the sidelines while your people struggled under apartheid.we did everything humanly possible aside sending solders to South Africa.we spoke and we acted. Your freedom became our obsession.

Because of the black people in south Africa,we risked international economic sanction when we nationalised all major British companies in Nigeria.
Our country went through a lot international challenges for readily giving asylum to freedom fighters from your country.

We nearly ruined the life of our sportsmen for the freedom of your people as we lead the campaign for boycott of the 1972 and 1976 Olympics.
We also snubbed the 1978 commonwealth games. Everyone from your country seeking a safe haven came to Nigeria.
When you came out of prison, you came here to thank us and we were happy to be a part of your struggle.we thought we were brothers,we assumed that we were the same until you left.

Since you left, things are no longer the same.our people who live in your country are treated worse than the white treated you.

At regular intervals xenophobic attacks are carried out against Nigerians .

Nowadays if a Nigerian prospers in business in your he will be attacked.

If he has a combination of the misfortune of looking good, dressing well and having a south African girlfriend he will be tagged a drug peddler.

While South African businesses thrive in Nigeria the prosperity of our people in your country is not freely allowed.

I wish you were here to tell them the truth,I wish you were here to call them to order.maybe you would have sent a message to them to stop killing their brothers from my country.

If reincarnation is a reality please come back as a Nigerian. If it is just an illusion then I hope to see you at the resurrection.

[PHOTO] So Wicked!!! Yahoo boys give horrific account of how they killed female DELSU student

Friends and family are still in tears over the gruesome murder of a First Class 300 Level undergraduate of Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka.
The pathetic confessional statements of the 4-man gang believed to be internet fraudsters, Yahoo boys, were made on Wednesday (yesterday), at the Delta State Police Command, where the suspects were paraded.
The suspects revealed how they killed the student, identified as Elozino Joshualia Ogege with the help of a security guard, Onos who offered to assist the victim secure an accommodation.
According to him,
“I was contacted by Desmond and another to provide a female student for Yahoo rituals. We had planned it, and when Elozino approached me that she was looking for accommodation, I saw it as a good opportunity”.
“I contacted Desmond who told me to tell her to come back the next day. So the next day, they brought a Corola car; and when Elozino came, they used something on her face which made her unconscious. We took her to a bush where we first plucked out one of her eyes while she was still alive. She was even crying and begging us to forgive her and let her go, but we plucked the other eye, removed her breast and heart before she died”.
Implicating his supervisor, Onos posited that he was posted into the school by his supervisor for the purposes of carrying out such missions when contacted.
But the Supervisor with a security company attached to the University, Uche Nwaosisi who said he is from Asaba, denied knowledge of the crime, stating that he was among those that chased and caught Onos when the police came after him in the school.
“When all these were happening, Onos threatened to implicate me for assisting the police to catch him. When the police caught him, they discovered two phones with him, which he claimed I sold one to him. That was my involvement “, the supervisor claimed.
However, one of the Yahoo Plus conspirators, Desmond who appeared remorseful, affirmed that the Elozino’s murder made it the fifth life he has taken for ritual purposes. He said the first four female victims were adopted at Oghara and killed for the rituals, adding that Elozino’s murder was his first from the University community in Abraka.
According to him,
“Each time we killed, we removed the vital organs like the eyes, the heart and the breast of the victims, normally females, and take to the Baba (herbalist), who usually would ask us to come back”.
“Baba used to burn the heart and pound it to make powder substance out of it. It is the powder that he gives us, which we apply before speaking to our victims to make money from them. Any big woman we approach obliges us and provides money for us”, Desmond revealed.
For the native doctor who appeared hardened and unrepentant, identified as Robinson, he kept calling on God as a witness that he was speaking the truth. He said Elozino’s heart and eye happened to be the first he received from the Yahoo Plus customers.
He said he first met the boys seven years ago when they brought an accident victim for him to cure, maintaining that he specializes in treating bone fractures, making women pregnant, preparing love portions for people, curing appendicitis and others.
He said when they came with Elozino’s body parts, they gave him N10,000, promising to give him more money later, and asked him to make them rich.
The Baba (herbalist), posited that they later brought N130,000 more to him and that was when he discovered they had mighty buildings. He said he only prayed for them to succeed in what they do.
He however, could not state categorically what he used those body parts for, whether he used to burn them or pound them in the mortal that was brought as evidence to the Police Headquarters.
The second Yahoo Plus member was alleged to have slumped and died when the police was close to catching him. The minor female relative who was used to make a call relating to their illicit operation was arrested and still with the police.
Addressing the journalists, the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka maintained that, now that all the killers of Elozino had been caught except the one that slumped and died, the police would now arraign them in court to face the consequences of their action.
He stressed that nobody should blame hardship to take up arms against fellow humans, adding that in most sane climes, hardships even bond people together.
The Command’s Spokesperson posited that it is an issue of value orientation; thereby calling on families, churches and other faith based organizations to rise up against this menace of ritual killings plaguing our society.
Aniamaka reassured the public that the Command was ready to face headlong any security challenge ahead of the Christmas season.
He said the operations order for the Ember months had since been dropped, arguing that all the police crack teams like the Dragons, Eagle Net, Squadrons, Safer Highways, SARS and others had been on red alert to effectively curtail crimes and criminality within this period.”

[VIDEO] Video Of Bishop Oyedepo Telling ‘Non-Performing’ Buhari To Resign, ‘Get Out Of Office’

Bishop David Oyedepo, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over his failure to curb the persistent Fulani militant herdsmen killings.
Founder and General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, better known as Winners’ Chapel, Bishop David Oyede, has been captured on camera asking President Muhammadu Buhari to resign, as it is the “honorable thing” to do for a “non-performing leader”.
The influential cleric who made the disclosure to his congregation at Cannan Land in Ota, Ogun State, on Sunday, said;
“The most honourable thing for any non-performing leader to do is to resign. The most honourable thing is to resign. That’s my own for Mr President. Resign.
“Get out of office! Even our Islamic friends in the North are calling on him (Buhari) to resign, because that’s the noblest thing to do. Or are we going to look at one system destroy a whole nation?”
Speaking on the theme, ‘Enough is enough’, he added: “When I was talking in 2015, people were saying my own was too much. Now everybody can see what’s happening.
“What has moved forward in anybody’s life? You don’t know it’s war. Why are they attacking the Christian communities? Why has nobody been arrested? I can tell you this, the authorities and the powers that be are behind them.
“I will never be partisan; Jesus got me out of it in 1984. But I will not be alive to see innocent people massacred.
“We must wake up and push this evil back. Not one of those so-called herdsmen, they are jihadists, has been brought to book till date. Herdsmen don’t shoot; they have been here with us all along.
“They just take cover under the herdsmen to assault innocent citizens, wake up in the night and slice children to pieces. Yet, you have a government in place. What!”

See 20 year old cultist that kills for ₦10k each and wears hijab to kill targets

A female member of a notorious cult got arrested by the Police in Lagos and has made a startling revelation on how she killed members of rival cult groups and any other person for a fee of N10,000.
While speaking when she was paraded by the Police in Lagos on Monday, a 20-year-old self-confessed sniper of the dreaded Eiye confraternity, Mariam Abiola, revealed how she killed four rival gang members in the Ilasamaja area of the state.
The young girl who admitted dropping out of school in SS3, was arrested on Monay morning together with three male accomplices by a police team from the Ilasamaja division, led by the Divisional Police Officer, Chief Superintendent Titilayo Oriyomi.
While making her confessions to police interrogators, she said it was easier for her to operate unnoticed wearing a hijab, adding that a member of her gang she described as an herbalist always prepared charms for her before she embarked on any major operation.

“He said I needed to blend into the system by being a member of the Eiye confraternity. I agreed. Thereafter, Sadiq taught me how to use a gun. By the time I went through training three times, I knew how to fire accurately.
“Anytime I was going to kill, Sadiq would give me the person’s picture and send the address to my phone. I usually wore a white male flowing gown and white hijab whenever we were going to kill any rival member.
“We always went in a group of four, including Wasiu and Segun. The gun was usually tucked inside my white flowing gown.
“On getting to the target’s house, which was usually at night, other members would jump through the fence and open the gate for me.
“I would enter and fire the person in the chest and forehead before leaving there.
“I have killed four persons. None of our targets survived. I killed one guy at Fadeyi area of Lagos. Another one at Hassan area, one at Ajeh area.
“At the end of each killing, Sadiq would pay me N10,000 and five others N20,000.
“I had struck at Fabiyi, Hassan and Aje streets and another street, all in Ilasamaja.
“Before we leave for any killing, we would visit the herbalist who would give us charms to put residents to sleep until the operation is concluded. I never felt bad killing anybody.”
Meanwhile, Sadiq also admitted being a member of the Eiye confraternity but denied knowing Abiola.
Speaking on the arrest, Lagos State commissioner of police, CP Imohimi Edgal said, “It is shocking to see a young lady of Abiola’s age talk of killings. Parents should do more by monitoring their children.
“It is worrisome that her confession are startling, chronicling the number of killings. Apart from being an assassin, she was also an armourer for her gang.”
