Hoodlums beat Baale deposed by Olubadan

Olu of Ibadan
The battle for the chieftaincy title of Baale of Olode in Ibadan got messier at the weekend as some suspected hoodlums pounced on Chief Lukman Ilufemiloye Alao, who was recently deposed by the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, his wife and children and beating them to stupor.

The chief, who was rushed to the Adeoyo Medical Hospital, Ibadan for treatment after the beating had challenged the decision taken by Olubadan in court saying it was unfair as he claimed he didn’t do anything to warrant his removal from office.

The injured community ruler who also had his Lexus Sports Utility Van  vandalised recounted his ordeal on his hospital bed saying he had gone to Olode village to tell his subjects  that he had  a court injunction he got challenging his removal when the thugs descended on him and his family members. The chief said the thugs whom he couldn’t count chased him with many motorcycles and eventually caught up with his car because of the bad road and gave him the beating of his life.

“I had gone to the community, where I reside to paste a court injunction I got challenging my illegal removal as Baale when thugs suspected to be working with Dauda Odeyemi (Ejo) started chasing my car.
“They started the chase from Fatusi but my car broke down and the thugs with about 70 motorcycles carrying at least 3 thugs pounced on me, my wife and younger brother who were with me in the car.
“We were beaten but because I was the target, I was heavily beaten. My car was damaged, the N150,000 cash in my pocket was stolen. My gold necklace, ring and wristwatch were also stolen.
“I was thereafter rushed to the Olubadan palace to show the king what they had done to me before I was eventually taken to the hospital.
“My removal was illegal because I was never informed, called or even showed any evidence or petition written against me before the news filtered around town.
“Although, I would be willing to abide by whatever decision or judgment of the court, but I have decided to challenge my removal in the court to prove that if indeed there are evidences of wrong doings against me, I would have been summoned to the palace, stripped of me title and my certificate of title conferment withdrawn from me, but that was not to be.

Meanwhile, two of the suspected thugs that attacked the deposed Baale were yesterday granted bail after the arraignment, Thursday.

It was shot in 2015 -Living Faith Church, Oyedepo defend video asking members to' kill'

The Living Faith Church Worldwide International (Winners’ Chapel International) and founder Bishop David Oyedepo has defended the video of the founder asking the church members to kill suspected “militants” who go near his church ,saying it was shot in 2015 in the heat of Boko Haram attacks...

 The Church through the Chairman of the Church’s Editorial & Media Board, Sheriff F. Folarin, said the the Bishop was not reacting to the current hostilities between Christians and Muslims in southern Kaduna .The statement reads

Our attention has been drawn to a salacious piece of fake news in mainstream and social media platforms, that Bishop David Oyedepo, Founder and President of Living Faith Church Worldwide (Winners’ Chapel International) charged Christians to take up arms and attack Muslims in the recent Kaduna killings and that if religious and ethnic injustice could not be addressed, Nigeria could as well break up. 

“The fake news item, which has been trending online for a couple of days, is supposed to be a report depicting the Bishop reacting to the hostilities between Christians and Muslims in southern Kaduna in which unnumbered persons, mostly Christians have been killed. “In this report, Bishop Oyedepo purportedly called out and berated the politicians who were fun-watching while the carnage went on or fanning the embers of the violence, and supposedly noted that there was no basis for Nigeria’s continued unity. 
“For instance, in the online version of one of the popular Nigerian newspapers (Vanguard of January 12, 2017 reported by one Anthony Ogbonna), the Bishop was quoted as saying: “God has anointed me to lead a revolution against the Islamic jihadists” The Bishop is presented to have made very provocative and inciting comments to his congregation, declaring a counter-war against the Fulani and fanatics in the recent Kaduna crisis. “The report is false. 
The video from which the quotes were taken is a 2015 video at a Sunday service in the heat of the Boko Haram crisis, when churches, including our Northern assemblies were under frequent attacks. This was before the present administration took office. The message bears no relevance to today’s happenings; not even developments of 2016. The reporter(s), either being completely unprofessional, lazy or simply wicked, made the 2015 message look like a 2017 church service message. 
The trending video is NOT a 2016 or 2017 video. “To this end, we can unequivocally and authoritatively say that this quote, the report and other similar reports do not fit the context of the Kaduna crisis or any developments whatsoever in the last one year. “The reports are therefore fake, unbelievably and maliciously fabricated and outright lies. They are tweaked, baseless, and fraudulent. “Bishop Oyedepo has not said, either in private or public, anything related to the Southern Kaduna killings: not now, not hitherto. If there has been anything done, it has been prayer for peace and unity of Nigeria. The intent of the original author(s) or fabricators is best known to them. 
“However, what is baffling is the degree of lowliness of today’s journalism practice. If any online media seeking patronage or relevance had bolted to the newsroom with this piece of white lie, shouldn’t the supposedly more responsible ones take ethical steps, namely, to confirm, substantiate and ascertain the authenticity of such claim before going to press and avoid joining the bandwagon of sensational and irresponsible journalism?. “Moreover, our church is an open one, with a website that has online media resources, from which all our audio and video tapes and other materials, from time immemorial, can be freely accessed. All our archived videos are unedited. Also, there are hard copies of all the church messages in our libraries and bookstores. Again, we have a Media and Editorial Board that can be consulted at any time. But, which of these mediums did the writers of the fake reports avail themselves of before publishing? 
“For the records and for posterity, Bishop Oyedepo will not say any of those things in view of current dire straits in which Nigeria has found itself. There are too many problems at hand, which require divine intervention. He will not add to the throes and utter such divisive words. As a father of the nation and a Pan Africanist in his own right as a religious leader whose ministry spreads across the continent and beyond, he is a huge believer in the corporate entity called Nigeria and has been a messenger of national love, hope, peace and unity. 
“While he feels for the victimized people across the length and breadth of the country and his heart goes to them, he has always worked with government at all levels to keep Nigeria safe and strongly unified. “The Living Faith Church Worldwide (Winners’ Chapel International) has never been a Yoruba church, or a Southern Nigeria church; it has always been a church for all Nigerian church, a platform where all persons of all walks of life bond in the name of Jesus Christ. For those who may not know, Bishop Oyedepo’s first major break in Christian ministry was in Kaduna, his second home, where he is a friend and father to millions of people of all religious and ethnic backgrounds. “Indeed, our church has been a catalyst for the Nigerian hope and dream and with its two universities and numerous secondary and primary schools nationwide, the church has made it possible for Nigerians to come closer as one people to rebuild our fatherland.”

Assailants kill UNILORIN graduate with mortar in Lagos

One of the new graduates of the University of Ilorin, Korede Adeyanju, has been killed by some assailants in the Ibeshe, Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

The Ikole-Ekiti, Ekiti State indigene, who rounded off his studies in History Education in 2016, was said to be awaiting the call up to the National Youth Service Corps, when he was attacked and killed last Friday.

PUNCH Metro learnt that a group of men broke into his apartment on Ayodele Raji Street and smashed a mortar on his head.

The 22-year-old was said to have been rushed to the Ikorodu General Hospital,  where he was confirmed dead.

The corpse was reportedly deposited in the hospital’s morgue, while the case was reported at the Ipakodo Police Division.

The victim’s uncle, Kehinde Adeyanju, said the assailants were suspected to be members of the Badoo cult, a group which had been terrorising Ikorodu residents.

He said, “He finished schooling last year and was awaiting the national service. When the call up was delayed, he decided to start working as a cashier in a sports betting centre in order to get busy. He started the job last Monday.
“He had returned from work on Thursday and was chatting on the phone with some of his friends till the early hours of Friday, when the men entered the room.
“They had tried getting in through the sitting room, but the burglar-proof bars prevented them. They later went in through the bedroom after removing the burglar-proof bars, which probably were not strong enough.
“From what we saw, it appeared that he struggled with them before they overpowered him and smashed his skull with a mortar which they also left behind.”

Adeyanju explained that the Badoo gang had been killing residents with a trademark of leaving mortar behind after each operation.

The victim’s brother, Olayinka, added that the group made away with Korede’s two phones and his laptop.

He said, “He was the only one in the room at that time. There were other people living in the house, because it is a six-flat building; but I am surprised that nobody heard the struggle and raised the alarm.
“I am aware that the gang also attempted to break into the landlord’s house, but they only succeeded in tearing his net; they couldn’t break the burglar-proof bars.”

While calling for the arrest and prosecution of the killers, Olayinka said his brother was among the many victims of the Badoo gang.

“This has been going on for years and it is time to stop it. We believe the community leaders have a hand in the killings. When one of the cult members was arrested sometime ago, he insisted on seeing one of the community leaders before he would talk. We want the government to get to the root of this matter and bring the perpetrators to justice,” he added.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that investigations had begun.
