The Nigerian Government prioritizes cows instead of pushing young men for technology – Pastor Ashimolowo


Nigeria, according to Pastor Mathew Ashimolowo, senior pastor of Kingsway International Christian Centre in London, is an oxymoron, a country without direction.


He claims that the country lacks the ability to develop its youth.
The prominent gospel preacher made the claim on Thursday at the Redeem Christian Church of God’s (RCCG) Youth Convention, dubbed “Exceeding Expectations.”


Authorities in the country, according to the man of God, have favored cows and herders above younger Nigerians who need to be pushed towards new technologies.


He believes that being born in Nigeria was an accident, and that the country lacks leaders that care about the people.

Dora Akunyili’s Daughter Mourns Father, Says Nation In Pain


Chidiogo Akunyili-Parr in grieving her late father, Dr Chike Akunyili said that her father’s death signified that the nation is in pain.


In a tribute on her social media page, she said, “Ubuntu – ‘I am because we are’. If this holds true, then the man who pulled the trigger twice is because we are — his anger, the injustice of his action, and his violence are because it is mirrored in the world around him. If ‘I am because we are’, then my father’s pain gasping for breath in his last moments is because we as a nation are in pain.”


She concluded her tribute by saying, “We can choose a different path… this current one leads to more senseless death and pain for one too many.”

VAT : Oyo seeks to join Rivers’ suit against FG


The government of Oyo State has asked the Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, for joinder in the suit instituted by the Rivers State government against the Attorney-General of the Federation in respect to the bid by the state to take over the collection of the Value Added Tax (VAT) from the Federal Government.


The suit, instituted by the Attorney-General of Oyo State, Prof. Oyelowo Oyewo, is seeking an order of the Appellate Court to enable Oyo State to join the suit as an interested party.
In the suit, the government of Oyo State is seeking two orders, viz: an order of the Honourable Court joining the Attorney-General of Oyo State as a respondent on the appeal with suit number FHC/PH/CS/149/2020 and appeal number CA/PH/282/2021, and any other order the Court may deem fit.


According to the Attorney-General of Oyo State, the government of Oyo State was unaware of the suit between the Attorney-General of Rivers State and the Federal Inland Revenue Service at the Federal High Court until the judgement was delivered.
Other grounds upon which the application was based include that the decision of the appellate court will affect the collection of VAT by the government of Oyo State, being one of the States which the judgement of the lower court recognised as entitled to collect VAT within its territorial jurisdiction.


Oyo State government also indicates that the applicant (Attorney-General of the State) “represents the interest of the Oyo State government, whose interest in the collection of Value Added Tax within Oyo State will be impacted one way or another by any judgment delivered by this Honourable Court in this Appeal.”
The grounds claimed by the Oyo State government include that: “The Applicant is a necessary party to this suit being a party who will be bound by the judgment of this Honourable Court in this Appeal.


“The interests of the Applicant and that of the Respondent, in this case, are similar, being States within the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
In a 12-paragraph affidavit in support of the motion, which was filed by the Director of Civil Litigation in the chambers of the Hon. Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Ministry of Justice, Oyo State, Olatunji Sunday Thomas, the government of Oyo State said that it is in the interest of justice that the Honourable Court grants the application, adding that the joinder would not prejudice the Appellants/Respondents.


It stated that the state, being one of the 36 states of Nigeria, will be affected by the decision of the Appellate Court, adding that joining the state to the suit already instituted by Rivers State will help to avoid multiplicity of suits by the states against the Federal Government.
In a motion on notice also attached to the proceedings already filed before the court, Oyo State said it relied on eight grounds and declared that the state is a necessary party to be joined since it has sufficient interest in the outcome of the appeal.


The state further argued that after going through its processes, the Appellate Court will find that the application is necessary and that it has sufficient interest in the determination of the appeal as one of the states of the Federation.
It quoted several legal authorities and concluded thus: “We, therefore, urge the honourable court to resolve the sole issue raised in this application in favour of the Applicant and hold that the Applicant is a proper, desirable and necessary party to be joined in this appeal…
“In conclusion, we humbly urge your Lordships to grant this application in the interest of justice and effective determination of the issues before the Court.”

Baba Ijesha defiled the minor twice. Inserted a car key in her private part — Forensic Expert


A forensic report presented by a witness, Olabisi Ajayi-Kayode on Tuesday to Special Offenses Court in Ikeja has revealed that the embattled Yoruba actor, James Olanrewaju Omiyinka, popularly known as ‘Baba Ijesha’, inserted a car key into the private part of a minor.


Olabisi Ajayi-Kayode who’s a child forensic interview expert, narrated how the suspect allegedly groomed and defiled a minor. Led in evidence by Mrs Olayinka Adeyemi, Lagos State Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Ajayi-Kayode said that the alleged victim was relaxed, cooperative and could recall events when she was being interviewed.


“The clinical presentation of child sexual abuse was quite evident. The perpetrator engaged the child in sexual activity when she was seven years old, on two occasions. On the 19th of April 2021, he sexually harased her, touching her body. He told her: ‘I touched you some years back, you are so grown, so developed. Do you have a boyfriend? We have some unfinished business.”

These are the clinical presentations of child sexual abuse. These are the dynamics of child sexual abuse and the modus operandi of perpetrators – inculcation of secrecy, intimidation, thrat or coercion,” she said. “He asked the child if he should remove his pennis and asked her to sit on his lap. He told her not to tell anybody.

The perpetrator also inserted his car key into her vagina and asked her not to tell anyone,” Olabisi Ajayi-Kayode added. Justice Oluwatoyin adjourned the trial to October 20 and 21 for further hearing. Recall that Baba Ijesha was on June 16 arraigned before a Chief Magistrates’ Court in Yaba, Lagos State for alleged sexual asault and attempted rape of a minor.

Speaking on UK-based ITV’s Good Morning Britain on Tuesday, Drea said, “I feel that my heart is in two places. My heart definitely goes out to the survivors and the courage that it takes to come forward and tell the story, but my heart breaks as a mother because this is now the legacy that my children will have to deal with and their children’s children.


“At the end of the day, you cannot walk away from your bloodline. I have the ability to separate and distance myself from it, but his blood runs through my children’s veins and it’s part of their DNA and they couldn’t escape it even if they wanted to.

MASKED MEN GIVE FULANI, HAUSA, THEIR CATTLE 30-DAY ULTIMATUM TO LEAVE YORUBALAND



Some masked men from Oyo State have issued a 30-day ultimatum to Fulani and Hausa people to leave all parts of Yorubaland.
They also said the herders among them should leave along with their cattle.


The 30 days started counting from Saturday, September 25, 2021.
This was contained in a video obtained by SaharaReporters on Saturday. Some of the men were clad in Yoruba Nation vests.
Their leader, who identified himself as Sunday Oyo, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to advise “his people” to leave Yorubaland within a month or face the consequences of disobedience, which they said might be gruesome.


The young man noted that though the Nigerian government was able to ensure the arrest of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, he, Sunday Oyo is different.
Igboho was arrested in Benin Republic in July while he and his wife were trying to travel to Germany. He has since been detained in the country.


However, Oyo said: “We are using this opportunity to warn President Muhammadu Buhari that he should immediately evacuate all Fulanis and Hausas from Yorubaland.
“We don’t want to have a relationship with you, let everyone go their separate ways. The torture is too much, let’s have our nation, and you have your nation, and be careful or else.


“We give you 30 days to leave Yorubaland generally. You have arrested Sunday Igboho, I am Sunday Oyo, we will deal with you. After 30 days, whatever your experience is, you should accept it as your fate.”
SaharaReporters had reported a similar threat made by Igboho in the past.
On January 22, Igboho visited Igangan, a town in the Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State, insisting that Fulani people must leave Yorubaland.


He accused the Fulani community in the area of masterminding abductions, killings, and other criminal activities in the area.
“Fulani cannot take over our land from us. We own our land and we won’t allow anybody to take it from us. Some people are intimidating us but we won’t succumb to their threat. For the Fulani living here, we are not fighting them, if they can live with us peacefully. Our fear is about Fulani taking over our land, kidnapping, and killing our people.


“We will evict them from our land if they insist on kidnapping our people. I am assuring Yoruba people, especially the residents of Oyo State that there is no cause for alarm. What we started today does not only have to do with Oyo State; we are going to evict Fulani people in the entire Yoruba land,” he had said.
Since his emergence as one of the masterminds of self-determination for the Oodua/Yoruba Nation, Igboho had faced several travails.
For instance, on July 1, 2021, his Soka residence in Ibadan was invaded by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), also known as the State Security Service (SSS) or secret police.


He was on July 20 arrested in Cotonou while trying to travel to Germany.
The Yoruba Nation agitator fled Nigeria after he was declared wanted by the DSS following the alleged discovery of weapons in his Ibadan residence.
He, however, denied owning the weapons found in his house, stressing that they were planted there by the security agency.
