FG Closes False Asset Declaration Case Against Saraki At CCT

The Federal Government on Thursday closed its case of false asset declaration and other related charges against the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, after its fourth prosecution witness testified before the Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja. The lead prosecuting counsel, Mr. Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), announced this after an official of Guaranty Trust Bank Plc, Ilorin branch, Mr. Bayo Dauda, testified as the fourth and last prosecution witness.

In response, Saraki’s lawyer, Mr. Paul Erokoro (SAN), said the defence would file a no-case submission. By opting to file a no-case submission instead of opening defence, Saraki’s defence team believes the prosecution with its documentary evidence tendered and testimony of its witnesses, was unable to prove any of the 18 counts preferred against Saraki. The case, filed in September 2015, has traversed the hierarchy of courts up to the Supreme Court with Saraki losing all applications and appeals filed to terminate the trial.

TB Joshua

I’m leaving Nigeria & relocating to Israel — TB Joshua

Nigeria’s most controversial Pentecostal preacher man, Prophet T.B. Joshua, has declared his intentions to leave Nigeria and relocate his ministry to the nation of Israel. Speaking to a multi-national audience at his church service on Sunday 30th April 2017, Prophet Joshua disclosed that he had just returned from the ‘Holy Land’ after holding meetings with three prominent Israeli mayors of Jerusalem, Tiberias and the Jordan Valley.

According to the cleric, they offered both land and facilities in an area around the biblical site of the Sea of Galilee for him to organize meetings for international pilgrims. “This is where my Father in Heaven came from – it’s non-negotiable,” Joshua explained, adding it was not a decision he undertook lightly.

“It’s the best place for you to meet Prophet T.B. Joshua. After your healing, blessing and deliverance, you can move around all the spiritual monuments which will establish your faith,” he further clarified. Joshua said his decision to leave was not connected to the “persecution” he endured during his ministry. However, he hoped the move would help people to “appreciate” what his ministry had been contributing to both the local economy and Nigeria’s international image.

A young man with the username @wiztalisman took to his twitter account to announce that he is HIV positive and plans to spread the disease. The guy claims to have been infected by a lady and to have infected about 17 women so far.

When other twitter users advised him to go for counselling, he declined saying he cant stand living on drugs and the counselling.

He has since deleted his tweets saying this was not how he wants to become famous and asked for forgiveness.. whether he has HIV or not, he did not say.
