House on the Rock release a statement following fire incident at their branch in Abuja

There was a fire outbreak at the House on the Rock Church, Abuja on Sunday, 25th June, 2017. The church management has reacted to the incident and also thanked everyone who helped put out the fire. Read the statement below
A  fire incident occurred at about 2 pm on Sunday 25th of June 2017 at the facilities used by the Abuja daughter church of the House On The Rock.
Thankfully, this occurred in the afternoon after all those who attended the mid-year Thanksgiving Service in the morning had departed the premises. We remain profusely grateful to the Sovereign and Almighty God that there were no human fatalities or casualties.
While some parts of the complex were damaged by the fire, the swift co-ordinated response of NEMA, the Federal Fire Service in Abuja, NJI, the NNPC, Julius Berger, the House On The Rock staff and members, and several friends and well wishers of the house who all responded to the incident contributed in no small way to the containment and eventual extinguishing of the fire. We commend the professionalism of all the first responders and thank them for the invaluable service they rendered.

We are now working with the relevant authorities and consultants to ensure the structural integrity of the affected building, even as we seek to determine the root cause of the unfortunate incident.
The weekly services will continue as usual, as the presently used service sanctuary remains unaffected.
The House On The Rock wishes to express her gratitude to all who inspite of the inconvenience of the torrential rainfall were available to render assistance, encouragement and moral support during the incident; your prayers, love and moral support expressed in various correspondences are truly and very deeply appreciated.
We enjoin all our members, friends and guests to remain calm as we solicit your continued prayers in this season. Let us all be comforted by the Scripture in Romans 8:28 which says “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Thank you

Donald Trump ends 20 years White House tradition of celebrating Ramadan with iftar dinner

 Donald Trump Ramadan
For the first time in twenty years, the White House did not hold a celebration to mark the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which ended at sunset on Saturday.
The iftar dinner occurs at sunset at the end of the holy month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islam lunar calendar and a time of prayer, reflection and fasting
White House officials reportedly spend months planning the event, which has been held every year under the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations, but 2017 took a different path.
Donald Trump’s government didn’t hold the iftar dinner and instead, the White House issued a statement on late Saturday evening.

“Muslims in the United States joined those around the world during the holy month of Ramadan to focus on acts of faith and charity.
Now, as they commemorate Eid with family and friends, they carry on the tradition of helping neighbours and breaking bread with people from all walks of life.
“During this holiday, we are reminded of the importance of mercy, compassion, and goodwill. With Muslims around the world, the United States renews our commitment to honour these values. Eid Mubarak.
The brief statements provide a stark contrast to the holiday message issued by former President Barack Obama, who warned against the “rise in attacks against Muslim Americans”.
There are reports also that earlier this year Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the government would not host the dinner.
Hosting an Eid celebration or an Iftar dinner – the nightly meal when Muslims break their fast during Ramadan — had been a White House tradition since 1996, when then-first lady Hillary Clinton hosted the first Eid dinner there.
Iftar dinners inviting prominent members of the Muslim community to break their fast at the White House were continued each year during the administrations of both President Bush and President Obama till Donald Trump stepped in 2017 and brought change.

soldier Evans' gang
Police are on the hunt for another soldier, believed to be a member of the gang run by suspected kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeje George Onwuamadike aka Evans.
The Nation newspaper reports that the soldier whose identity is yet to be revealed, was attached to one of the Army formations in Lagos.
Their source revealed the police have the soldier’s names and pictures and would leave no stone unturned in arresting him.

“He should have been arrested on Saturday night but we believe he might have gone into hiding after his colleague, Victor Chukwunonso, was caught. That was why the police high command did not want to release information on the arrest of Chukwunonso because there are so many others being investigated.
“But I know he would be caught. Our bosses will simply approach army authorities with evidence and request that he be handed over to the police,” he said.
