Tufiakwa: Police in Armoured Tank Chase Out Worshippers from Church.

“We were in the church on Sunday morning when a troop of heavily armed policemen came with an armoured tank as if there was a war and started beating and chasing people out of the church.
“We are into two factions. The service was going on. Some were at the back worshipping while members of the other faction were worshipping inside the church. I don’t know why they came because we had been praying like that since the crisis erupted in the church hierarchy.

The Assemblies of God Church at No 27 Mount Street Agbani Road, Enugu, was invaded by the Enugu state police with an Armoured Personnel Carrier and allegedly mauled worshipers.

The invasion of the church was led by the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the operation with three Divisional Police Officers of Kiriki, Uwani and Awkunanaw stations, on Sunday.

It was gathered that after the invasion, some members of the church were arrested and the church premises which also had a school were padlocked after the worshippers had been chased out.

Assemblies of Church had been engulfed in a leadership crisis since 2014. Since then, the crisis had been under litigation.

But recently, the Federal High Court, Enugu, presided by Justice Dugbo-Oghoghorie, gave an order directing the parties to maintain the status quo. Our correspondent learned that the court fixed January 30 for ruling on the case.

However, one of the worshippers manhandled by the police operatives who gave his name as Osita Ike described the action of the police as an unlawful, desecration of the church and inhuman.

He said, “I don’t know the cause of such an embarrassment and inhuman treatment displayed by the Nigeria Police. They maltreated the worshippers who came to worship God and arrested some members of the church.

“We were in the church on Sunday morning when a troop of heavily armed policemen came with an armoured tank as if there was a war and started beating and chasing people out of the church.

“We are into two factions. The service was going on. Some were at the back worshipping while members of the other faction were worshipping inside the church. I don’t know why they came because we had been praying like that since the crisis erupted in the church hierarchy.

“For the short period that I joined them, about a year and six months now, one faction normally starts by 6am, and ends at 11 am. The other group starts at 11 am and end at any time of their choice.”

He said after the church premises were padlocked, four members of the church were arrested and taken to the police headquarters.

As of the time of filing this report, it was not clear whether those arrested on Sunday had been released.

When contacted on the telephone, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amaraizu, declined comment.

Amaraizu, a Superintendent of Police, told our correspondent, “Let me find out what happened” and switch off his phone.

UFC: Nigerian Born Isreal Adesanya defeats Robert Whittaker!

Published

on

Houston-Texas. Israel Mobolaji Temitayo Odunayo Oluwafemi Owolabi Adesanya; born in Lagos, Nigeria, defeated Robert Whittaker at the UFC 271 in Houston, Texas. Sports pundits now believe his reign of dominance has just began. He is unstoppable. The 32-year-old Adesanya, alias ‘The Last Stylebender’ is a mixed martial artist, kickboxer, and former boxer with multiple championships in all three disciplines.

It was a unanimous decision in the main event of UFC 271 to defend his middleweight title and push his record over his rival to a perfect 2-0.  The two fought for 25 minutes and a unanimous decision was awarded to Adesanya, as he scored 48–47, 48–47, and 49–46 on the three judges’ scorecards.

During the post-match press briefing, Robert Whittaker, who lost for the second time to Isreal said –“I thought I did enough, I thought I did enough,” Whittaker told MMA Junkie at the post-fight press conference. “Breaking it down, I think I lost the first round. I put myself together and I beat him to every punch. I got takedowns. I thought I did enough.

“But it is what it is. That’s how work goes in the office. I’m going to go back evolve some more, get better, and fine tune the things that I’ve been working on, and come back a better man. Honestly, though, Izzy was my biggest obstacle, my biggest hurdle. He beat me in a good fashion the first time. I’ve been working and angling myself to evolve and to get better and I’ve done that. You can see it in this fight how far I’ve come. To the point that I think I beat him.

So, I’m excited. I’m excited for the future. The ceiling is nowhere in sight. There is no ceiling for me.”

 Adesanya and Whittaker are the two best 185-pound fighters in the world. Although the gap between them may have narrowed slightly since UFC 243, the gulf between Whittaker and whoever qualifies as No. 3 on any given day has only widened.

 A very big congratulation to a fellow Naija man.

Zucker’s stunning announcement came less than two months after he fired prime time anchor Chris Cuomo for improperly advising his brother, then-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, about how to address sexual misconduct allegations.
“As part of the investigation into Chris Cuomo’s tenure at CNN, I was asked about a consensual relationship with my closest colleague, someone I have worked with for more than 20 years,” Zucker told employees in a memo. “I acknowledged the relationship evolved in recent years. I was required to disclose it when it began but I didn’t. I was wrong. As a result, I am resigning today.”
Zucker did not name his colleague, but the relationship is with Allison Gollust, his key lieutenant for the last two decades. Gollust is remaining at CNN.
