ALLEGED BLASPHEMY: Police arrest suspects as Buhari, Ganduje condemn killing of Igbo woman in Kano

Outrage, yesterday, greeted alleged lynching of the wife of a pastor in Kano by a mob made up of Muslims over alleged blasphemy. The woman, Bridget Agbahime, described as Igbo from Imo State, was said to have disallowed some Muslims from performing  ablution in front of her shop in  Kofar Wambai area of  Kano metropolis, following which she was accused of blasphemy and the mob gathered to lynch  her. The killing was said to have happened in the presence of the woman’s husband, Pastor Mike Agbahime, on Thursday. President Muhammadu Buhari;  Governor Abdullahi Umar of Kano State; his Imo State counterpart, Rochas Okorocha  and the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) led the condemnation of the murder yesterday. The condemnation came on a day the Inspector General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, called  for calm on the incident and assured that justice will be done on the case. Force Headquarters also said two suspects had been arrested in connection with the incident. Ganduje A statement by Force Public Relations officer, ACP Olabisi Kolawole said, “Those arrested include Dauda Ahmed and Subeiru Abubakar. “In order to ensure a diligent and professional investigation, the Inspector General of Police has directed the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in- charge of the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (FCIID) to deploy the Homicide Section of the Department to immediately take over the investigation of the case and ensure a meticulous investigation and speedy prosecution of the arrested suspects. “The IGP has also directed the Commissioner of Police of Kano State to sustain the community engagement actions which he is currently initiating with all strategic security stakeholders and community leaders in the State with a view to dousing the tension being generated by the condemnable incident”. In a statement by presidential spokesman, Mr. Femi Adesina, Buhari “condoles with the husband of the deceased, Pastor Mike Agbahime, the family and relations, praying that God would give them the fortitude to bear the loss.” The president also “commended the law enforcement agents for apprehending the prime suspect behind the killing, as well as the Kano State government, which summoned a meeting of Christian and Islamic leaders, widower of the deceased, and security agencies, as soon as the sad event occurred.” The President assured that justice would be done in the matter, and urged the people not to take the law into their hands. He equally charged those who may want to use the development to fan the embers of religious or ethnic hatred to remember that two wrongs never make a right, and that when law and order breaks down, those who become victims were never distinguished on the basis of religion or ethnicity. Ganduje  was swift in condemning the killing. Rising from a meeting chaired by the governor and attended by prominent personalities including the state Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Rev. Ransome Bello; the husband of the deceased, Pastor Mike Agbahime; Islamic scholars and security agencies, the stakeholders described the incident as “unfortunate and regrettable.” In a  resolution read by  Ganduje  after the meeting, the stakeholders condoled  Agbahime, stressing that “the killing of his wife is unjustifiable and without her fault”. The governor asserted that justice must be done in the matter, in accordance with  the law. In his remarks, the state CAN Chairman, Bello, said his  association was satisfied with the resolutions adding that “there is nothing better any person would expect more than what you (the governor) have done tonight”. Okorocha, in a statement, yesterday, described the murder  as “a rude shock and the height of recklessness”. The governor, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, CPS, Mr. Sam Nwuemeodo, also described it as “most unfortunate”. “The governor received the news with rude shock and indeed with utmost dismay, the unfortunate report that a woman from the state, Mrs. Bridget Agbaheme, was murdered in cold blood in Kano State, over related religious issues and described the killing as the height of recklessness on the part of the perpetrators”, the CPS said. According to Onwuemeodo, when the governor was informed about the disturbing incident, he took the necessary steps and even went beyond the media reports on the sad development to confirm the report and discovered that the woman in question was truly from Mbaitoli Local Government Area of the state. “At this stage, the governor has no option than to call on all relevant security agencies in Kano State to leave no stone unturned in carrying out thorough investigation into the killing of the woman, and also stop at nothing to bring those who carried out the murder to book and pay dearly for their wicked act”, the CPS said. MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu, described the killing of the woman as gruesome and barbaric, insisting that his group would no longer tolerate the killing of Igbo  anywhere in Nigeria. The statement read in part: “The unprovoked and insensitive killing of Igbo woman yesterday in Kano state is unacceptable to MASSOB. It can never be washed away or treated insensitively as usual. “The open barbaric gruesome murder of an Igbo mother in Arewaland is a conscious provocation of conscience of Ndigbo. “Why must the blood of Biafrans continue to be split on the cursed soil of Arewaland in the name of Islamic Religious fundamentalist and extremists? “MASSOB also warns that Deeper Life Church must compensate the pastor husband of the slain Igbo woman because they posted the family to Kano state”.

I rejected private jet gift —Apostle Johnson Suleman

Apostle SulemanThe General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries Intervational, Apostle Johnson Suleman, who just ended the Johannesburg, South Africa, version of the Restoration Conference 2016 and will be moving to Kigali in Rwanda in June, shares his travel experience, and why he rejected a plane offer by a businessman. You were in Johannesburg and moving to Rwanda next. What should the Rwandans expect of your mission there? We have declared our next move through the Holy Ghost to have the next Apostolic Visit to Kigali, Rwanda. The Johannesburg experience was awesome. I will tell you that Rwandans will experience unforgettable moments and results with God. They are going to experience great grace. It is going to be miracles all over; challenges shall end as God’s Oracle storm the African country. Storms shall disappear, and the mighty presence of God shall manifest. It is going to be the same experience in Philadelphia because the next leg of the mission goes there.  You are always on the move around the world preaching the gospel. What have been the experiences so far? Apostle Suleman God has sent His servant to America, to the world, to bring restoration and grace to all who would believe. Recently, the world experienced he presence of God in America, as people from all parts of America yearned for the great encounter. Over the years, American cities like New York, Texas, Chicago, Georgia, Maryland, Florida and several others have experienced the power of God. It was Minnesota, three weeks ago, and Philadelphia next. We were also in Sierra Leone after the Minnesota experience. Next was Johannesburg in South Africa, and next is Kigali, Rwanda. And God has promised us these are also going to be fulfilling journeys in the life of the hopeless and the downtrodden.   As we move around the world through His special grace, millions of people are being freed from all evil foundations that temporarily hold on to their glories, finances, health, spiritual life and family success.  Your ministry’s Celebration TV just marked its third anniversary. How has the response been using a faith based television channel to reach audiences? We give all glory to God. We saw this vision passionately spreading beyond Africa and it has come to be. We are determined to keep on this blessed track and ensure souls and lives are redeemed as far as technology can reach. The aim for which the Celebration TV of our great ministry of God was established is fulfilling. One of the core objectives is to reach many homes across the world, wiping away tears and restoring people back to their destinies through the revelation of the Word and the manifestation of power and the reality of the Holy Spirit. Celebration TV was established to take the gospel into the homes, schools, offices and businesses of millions across the nations. We are going to continue to use this powerful tool for the gospel and expansion of the Kingdom.  It was in the news that you have joined the league of pastors who own private jets; is that true? It is no crime for a man of God to have a private jet, if it is meant to reach the world faster in spreading God’s mission. But I don’t have one yet. The truth is that, I was given a private plane as a gift about one month ago. But God told me that the giver was not pure. So I rejected it. You may have seen the pictures of the jet on the internet. In fact, I collected it. But when I prayed over it and found out that the source of the giver’s wealth wasn’t sincere, I politely turned it down.  Helping people has become a constant feature with you, even as you heal people. Is that the secret why you have so many followers? To start with, one lesson is the value of time-tested methods. Yes, using the new media for outreach contributes significantly to attracting people to God. But the fact remains that teaching the Word and having personal relationships by way of sharing, are the most effective forms of publicity to growing the church. Like I have always shared with people, I have tasted poverty. I come from a very humble background. This is what fires my passion for sharing with the less privileged. We are not graceful with words of mouth; we are also generous with other things that make life worth living for a man. God understands the needs of man and He is ever ready to provide those needs if man obeys His Word. We regularly share cars worth several millions of Naira, cash gifts and more. The latest is a brand new multimillion Naira Mercedes car we gave out to a member.  There is the story making the rounds about celebrity marriages crashing. What are the divine elements needed to keep a marriage going? The Lord says in Genesis 2:18. “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him. That is a proof that God wants and is happy with man and woman relationship. For a Christian to keep the home, spouses must avoid anger to the point of leading them to commit evil. In marriage, you need to understand the mystery of the third party. It must be fought. In marriage, spouses must always be one another’s friends. If a marriage must succeed, there in spouses, must be spiritual and emotional maturity. One of the keys to a lasting marriage is communication. Lack of communication gives room for suspicion and the devil sets in.  Spouses must learn to call each other pet names to deepen the mutual affection, even in Christian homes. A woman must learn to take good and proper care of her body. In marriage, love covers multitude of offences. Immorality sets into marriages when men are not sexually free with their wives.  Can you share the experiences of your recent conference in Johannesburg. It was indeed awesome. God manifested Himself in many miraculous ways. It is a written pact that God’s works done in God’s way never lack positive supplies. God has always been wonderful. The Johannesburg experience tagged Restoration Conference 2016 was an explosive deliverance episode that was filled with signs of His glory and power. Many things new did happen in the life of many. Of course, when Jesus calls, the world gathers; listens and profits hugely.
