The Truth in Lady’s Sexual Assault Accusation Against Kevin Jazaura?

The Truth in Lady’s Sexual Assault Accusation Against Kevin Jazaura?

Social Media has given people the well-deserved recognition they need, brought about business boom for lots of online vendors, but when in the wrong hands and used for the malicious purposes, it can be used to tarnish the image of a brand, person, or even cause people who have been victimised on the platform to sink into depression and resort to unimaginable vices.

In a recent trend that has sadly become a thing, people, especially ladies have called out members of the opposite sex for attempting to get physical with them. Two that easily come to mind are the accusation against Unilag Olodo, by a lady who claimed he forced himself on her, but when legal action was taken up by the accused, she was nowhere to be found upon request to show up at the police station; another is the story of actress Sola Fapson and the Taxify driver who she labelled a rapist after his alleged attempt to violate her sexually.

The latest is this claim by a Nigerian lady, LP The Whiskey Lady, who on the 14th of October 2018, posited that a trusted friend of hers who goes by the name, Kevin Jazuara and whose picture she shared on her Instagram page, tried to sexually assault her.

While her account of the event has generated much media attention and having the likes of Linda Ikeji Blog, Instablog and other gossip sites carry the news we can’t help but notice the gaping holes in the accuser’s account.

The accuser mentioned that she was “highly intoxicated” and “as drunk as a sailor” when the assault happened. This brings the question of how she clearly remembers everything that allegedly conspired between herself and Kevin. Understanding how weak she claimed to be, how did she also muster the strength to try to put her finger in his butt hole when all his weight was on her. This would have been more credible if she had stated that she tried to poke his eyes as that’s more easily accessible for a girl as drunk as a sailor… but the butt hole?

We can’t help but wonder how she was able to get him off her, get the keys to his car and drive herself home. Why are there no screenshots of the WhatsApp and Instagram messages of the accused begging her and requesting to see her?

These and many more are the questions that beg for answers. The gaping holes in the story make it obvious that the story is full of assumptions, disjointed, and should not be deliberated upon by those who come across it.

This should also gear people to be considerate of the feelings of those who are actual victims, as the more questionable accounts of sexual assault are pushed out, the less credible the real cases would look, and justice might not be served against rapists when it is needed.

Alexander Adefarasin, son of Paul Adefarasin has something to say about the Girl Child.

Alexander Adefarasin, one of Pastor Paul and Ifeanyi Adefarasin’s sons, recently gave a talk in school on the role of the importance of enlightening the girl child. Thursday, October 11th was the International Day of the Girl, an international observance day declared by the United Nations, which is usually celebrated by most countries of the world.

According to Alexander, “women around the world, especially the 3rd world countries, are perceived to be the lesser gender next to us men, but that is not the case. Instead, they should be perceived as equal to us, and we should not overlook the importance of girls because these girls mature into women who are the mothers and wives of our future generation. And the way people believe that women should be confined to the perimeters of the home, we might be forgetting that the home is the bedrock of society.

There should be the formal education of a child 24/7, 365 days a year. Women, in other words, are great teachers, they sacrifice so much for their children, and they need to have proper requisite to support their husbands, and this comes with education starting from right now. And without the exposure to knowledge, we won’t be able to prep children with the vital skills needed to go through life…”

On this International Day of the #GirlChild, my son was asked to speak on the role of the importance of enlightening the girl child and I was so proud to hear what he had to say. _ It made me realise that even as we raise up these extraordinary young girls, train them to accomplish their dreams and empower them to unlock their full potential, it is also important to train the young boys as well so they will grow into supportive men, encouraging the female gender as they strive to reach their full potential. The one would be much easier to accomplish with the other. _ I hope the message inspires boys and girls everywhere to aspire to greatness, to pursue and fulfil their God-given purpose. While those of us tasked with the important role of raising these young, gifted men and women of tomorrow, are encouraged in our labour of love. What a future awaits them if we raise them up correctly. _ #ProudMom #Girls #InternationalDayOfTheGirl #GirlChild

In a culture and society that is mostly gender-biased, it is incredible to know that Paul Adefarasin and his wife are raising their kids not just the godly way but also as civil and responsible children. As we focus on building our girl child to be responsible in society, it is essential that we train the male child to know his roles too. They will both grow into adults to live in community together, so we must educate the young boys to be supportive and encouraging gender equality. Men and women are equal.  

How To make the right impact, you have to invest your energy – Paul Adefarasin

To make the right impact, you have to invest your energy – Paul Adefarasin

“Make Impact” is a message by Senior Pastor of House on The Rock Church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin in his “Something is about to happen” series.

“Salt is good: but if the salt has lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.”

We are salts

The next half of your life must be the best half of your life. It is not worthwhile if you’re investing so much energy, yet not making much impact. In Mark 9;50, Jesus teaches that the body of believers are the salt of the earth and he informs us that a little bit of salt will have such great and powerful effect. The salt is powerful in that it has preservation and powers. It has the ability to change things. In calling us salt, it means that we are keeping something from deteriorating.

We are designed to make an impact

Are you impactful or just energetic? At times, we get tired when we do so much, and we don’t get enough result. It’s about organisation. If we are not organised, we waste our lives. If we’re going to be effective, we have to learn the measuring systems that God has provided for measuring impact otherwise we’ll end up depressed at some stage in life. When you don’t do what you are designed for, it’s called suppression. You’re suppressing who you are. You’re depressing who you are; you are designed to be fruitful, impactful and productive.

Saying “no”

One of the things about the most influential people on earth is the power to say no. When we become committed to everything, it is usually at the expense of our primary purpose and the primary calling upon our lives. We have to learn to feel better and more obedient to God. Stop being a messiah, because everytime you say “yes” to everything and everyone, you are sapping your energy, depleting your strength, defusing your focus and killing your ability to be laser sharp and powerful. Teach people to respect your specialisation.

Invest your energy

You have to learn where you invest your time, energy and how to determine your investment by the impact you desire to make, so you invest based on the endgame which is the impact that you intend to create. We must learn to invest energy into areas where we are most impactful. When you invest energy in the wrong areas, you do so to the detriment of the areas where you could be effective, fruitful, most productive and most impactful. So you need to stop investing your energy in things that don’t do good.  Do what you do well, do what gives you impact that when you do it, it changes people, the atmosphere and the status quo. Impact has everything to do with perspectives. The internet as a technology has given us the opportunity for impact. Don’t waste and misuse it.

War in the House of God: Members accuse Bishop of polygamy, want him removed

 

War in the House of God: Members accuse Bishop of polygamy, want him removed
*Members of the Church protesting(in set: *Christ Church Cathedral Akwete

 

UMUAHIA—ALL is not well with the Christ Church Cathedral [Anglican Communion] Akwete, Ukwa Diocese, Ukwa East Council of Abia State. The church is presently engrossed in serious crisis which pitched members against the Bishop of the Diocese, Rt. Rev. Samuel Kelechi Eze. The crisis is rocking the very foundation of the church as the parishioners are up in arms against the Bishop. In fact, they have banned him from conducting church services or even administering the church. They are also pushing for him to vacate the Bishop’s House, his official residence.
Bone of contention
The problem is that members of the church are accusing Bishop Eze of some wrong doings; particularly, they accused him of being a polygamist; that he has two wives who live with him in the Bishop’s Court. Other wrong doings border on maladministration of the church as well as not taking proper care of the priests working under him in the church. The matter has degenerated to the extent that the attention of the head of Anglican Church in Nigeria, the Primate, The Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh has been drawn to it. Indeed, the situation has got to the level that the Laity of Ukwa Diocese organised a protest against the Bishop.
Petitions
Worried by the happenings in the church, some members wrote a petition to the Primate, urging him to intervene in the matter. In the petition dated October 17, 2017 entitled: Urgent need to intervene and save the Cathedral Church of Christ, Akwete from certain doom, the members in addition to accusing Bishop Eze of practising polygamy, alleged that he dissolved the Church Committee duly elected and set up a seven-member caretaker committee; that he runs the Cathedral purse with a priest who has been transferred out of the Cathedral for eight years and that the Bishop demoted and transferred the church’s resident canon.
Besides the petition, a three-man delegation of the Church, led by an elder and the 18th President-General of Joint Council of Knights, Anglican Communion, Chief Okere Eruba, to the Primate to show the seriousness of the crisis.
Bishop Eze reacts
Bishop Eze, however, denied all the allegations. He said all the allegations against him were trash, borne out of tribalism and selfish desires. He wondered how a Bishop would marry two wives. He said that the matter is being handled by the Primate and warned that it is an issue that could lead to serious litigation. He accused the Archbishop of the Province of Aba, Dr. Ikechi Nwosu of being the mastermind of his travails.

Bishop Eze who replied to a text message sent to him, said he was out of the country and would talk more when he returned. “How can a Bishop marry two wives”, Eze queried. His text reads: “This is a matter that the head of our church, the Primate, is handling and one that could lead to serious litigation. Everything they’re talking is trash, borne out of tribalism and selfish desires and masterminded by the Archbishop. How can a Bishop marry two wives? I’m out of the country now but will soon be back. I will like to have a word with you when I am back. God bless you. Bishop Eze.”

Investigative panel
Responding to the petition, the Primate mandated the Aba Provincial Bishops under the leadership of the Archbishop, Most Rev. Ikechi Nwosu, to investigate the allegations against Bishop Eze. A total of seven Bishops from the province joined the Archbishop in the panel. They were said to have sat four times during which they interviewed Bishop Eze, the Ukwa Diocesan Board, the aggrieved church members as well undertook independent investigations.
Reports in white paper
Based on their findings, in their report to the Primate, the Provincial Bishops observed among other things that Bishop Eze was “not quite willing to give us adequate information needed; the Bishop and his wife have no cordial relationship and team work; there are administrative lapses between the Bishop and the wife; there is weakness in financial accountability and probity; there is lack of grip in women’s ministries; Bishop Eze did not define his relationship with Gladys Chinazaekpere Nwosu; the Bishop is not completely in control of the Diocese.”
In a white paper issued from the report and signed by the Primate, Nicholas Okoh, he upheld the recommendations and Bishop Eze was among other things asked: “to be humble enough to own up to the depth of the relationship between him and Miss Gladys Chinazaekpere Nwosu, admit his fault and genuinely repent and reconcile with God; that the Bishop should apologise and seek to be with the people of the Cathedral and other aggrieved parties if any; the Bishop should severe such relationship with Miss Gladys or any other woman that arouses any form of suspicion whatsoever; that the accounts of the Cathedral are to henceforth be operated in line with the Diocesan Constriction”, among others.
But the Laity of Ukwa Diocese and members of the Church are not happy that the primate has not been able to carry out the recommendations he upheld since January, insisting that nothing has changed. To further show their grievance, they held a protest march in Akwete urging the Primate to remove the Bishop and sanitise the church.
During the protest, they displayed various placards, some with inscriptions such as: Primate, Holy Bible must always be upheld, otherwise we are hypocrites of the gospel. Ukwa Diocese, we say Primate dismiss Rt. Rev. Kelechi Eze from Christ Church, he has pollutaed the Diocese with sin of sexual immorality. Rt. Rev. Samuel Kelechi Eze is keeping two [2] women under his roof as wives. The Diocese is saying no to that act. Therefore, he should leave Ukwa Diocese. Primate, Anglican Communion, the soul that sinneth shall die. Bishop Eze of Ukwa Diocese has broken his canonical oath and he should be removed, among others.

The coming days will determine the future of Ukwa Diocese.

And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation] (2 Corinthians 9:8 AMPC).

 

As a Christian, never utter statements like, “Things are tight. I have to manage. If I give or spend so much, I won’t have anything left.” To have such a mindset is to put yourself in a position of disadvantage and financial jeopardy. Never talk lack, because you’re the seed of Abraham and all things are yours in Christ: “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29).

 

God wants you to live at that higher level of spiritual consciousness, where your spiritual eyes are open to see that the whole world belongs to you. As you consciously develop yourself in God’s Word, you’ll realise He’s already given you everything that pertain to life and godliness. Lay claim to your possessions by walking in the light of His Word.

 

Walk in the practical consciousness of what the Word says about your Kingdom rights, privileges, and possessions in Christ Jesus. Declare, “The Lord is my shepherd; therefore, I refuse to lack. Doors of opportunities are open unto me. I’m blessed, and all my needs are abundantly supplied according to God’s riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

The will of God and the certainty of the life of abundance He’s called you into is clearly revealed in our opening verse. He wants all grace—every favour and earthly blessing—to come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need, be self-sufficient, possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation.

Pastor-Chris-Oyakhilome

 

Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life. (Galatians 6:5 MSG)

Some Christians try to make God responsible for what actually is their responsibility. Often times, when something unpleasant happens, they’d conclude, “It’s the will of God; otherwise, why did He let it happen?” What such people need to realise is that the authority to change things on earth, and make our lives as beautiful as we desire, has been given to us. You can make your life glorious by living out God’s Word.

In Matthew 17:20, the Lord Jesus was emphatic when He said, “…verily “I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this, mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall; remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” He makes it clear that you can create your victorious life by acting your faith on the Word of God. He already gave you the measure of faith you require to effect the changes you desire.

In Mark 9:23, He said, “…all “things are possible to him that believeth.”

The question is, do you believe? If you do, then you have before you a life of endless possibilities. Put the Word to work in your life, and you’ll always be victorious. Don’t “wait” for His Word to come to pass in your life; rather, you’re to work the Word.

Philippians 2:12 says, “…work “out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”  Work out the Word in your life and make it produce results. Using your faith, you can be what you want to be, change what you want to change, and achieve whatever you want to achieve! Faith is our currency and “power to do” in the Kingdom of God.

God has already given you the dominion and the authority to create your triumphant life, by altering the course of events in your life to conform with His perfect will. Keep living in the Word, and the glory of God will be manifest in all you do.

CONFESSION

Christ is my life and all I require; thus, my life is one of endless glory, joy, victories, successes, and possibilities! I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me. Nothing is impossible unto me! I’m a believer in Christ Jesus; therefore, a possessor of all things! things! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES : YOU DWELL IN HIM

 

 

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL

SUNDAY. 5TH AUGUST 2018

YOU DWELL IN HIM

Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations (Psalm 90:1).

In spite of the troubles, crises, and overwhelming spread of evil around the world, there’s nothing for you to fear, because you dwell in Christ. Psalm 91:1 says, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” The Lord protects and takes care of His people. In Christ, we’re never, and can never be disadvantaged; we’re victors and not victims; the Lord Jesus assured us of peace and safety in a tempestuous world.

Read His very comforting words in John 16:33; He said, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” He overcame the world for you, and gave you the victory. You have dominion over Satan, circumstances, and the world. Irrespective of the crises and tribulations in the world, in Him we have peace, assurance, safety and security (John 16:33).

Your location in the spirit is Christ; that’s your dwelling place. Therefore, you’re under the shadow, that is, the protection of Almighty God. The Apostle Paul, by the Spirit, tells us, “…if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature…” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Notice the underlined words, “in Christ,” showing us that Christ is your dwelling place. Christ is a person—the Man Christ Jesus—and Christ is also a place in God.

Be confident. Be courageous. Refuse to fear. You dwell in Christ; therefore, you’re shielded from harm, evil and destruction. In Him you live, and move, and have your being. He has said, “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee” (Psalm 91:7). Hallelujah!

 

CONFESSION

Christ in me is the glory of my life; I reign and rule in life. I dwell in Him, and carry a divine atmosphere of glory and victory. When I come in, darkness flees, because I’m the light in a dark world. Blessed be God!

Paul Adefarasin records another success with The African Praise Experience (T.A.P.E.)

House On The Rock’s senior pastor, Paul Adefarasin has successfully hosted another edition of The African Praise Experience (T.A.P.E.). The festival of praise held on Friday, 27th July 2018 at The Rock Cathedral in Lagos.

The African Praise Experience (T.A.P.E.) is an annual music concert where Christians from around the world gather to exalt the name of Jesus to the glory of Almighty God through praise, dance and music. The massive turn-out recorded at the conference is a testament to Pastor Paul Adefarasin’s positive influence within the Christian community in Nigeria and abroad.  

Leading gospel acts, such as Sammie Okposo, Onos, Frank Edwards, Midnight Crew, Ada, Eben, Bukola Bekes, Chioma Jesus and the Lagos Metropolitan Gospel Choir (LMGC), all lent their voices to make this year’s concert a success.

T.A.P.E. was even more remarkable this year with the inclusion of FEARLESS headlined by the Tim Godfrey alongside the award-winning Xtreme Crew and Travis Greene, the “Intentional” crooner, internationally-acclaimed and best-selling Gospel Music Minstrel.

With hands raised high in thanksgiving, worshippers gathered for a night of praise and sang and danced along with songs of exaltation.

“Since inception, TAPE has been an awesome expression of rhythm and sounds of worship with a stellar cast of worship leaders.”

Pastor Paul Adefarasin’s capacity to teach, speak and preach from a personal and theological platform has strengthened and encouraged people all over the world for years, and this event was no different as the pastor and a host of other leading men of God were on ground to talk about Jesus and His salvation at the event.

Marvel Comics Commissions Nigeria’s Okorafor to Write Standalone Book on Black Panther’s Shuri

 

 

 

 

Nigerian award winning comic writer Nnedi Okorafor has been commissioned by Marvel Comics to write a standalone book for Black Panther character ‘Shuri’.

Shuri, who gained global acceptance and fan base after the release of the block buster ‘Black Panther’, is the younger sister of lead character T’Challa.

The role was played in live action by British actress Letitia Wright while T’Challa, also known as Black Panther was portrayed by American actor Chadwick Boseman.

Okorafor, who had earlier written ‘Black Panther: Long Live the King and Wakanda Forever’, shared the news on her Twitter handle on Tuesday.

She wrote @Nnedi: “Announcement: I am writing Shuri. Black Panther’s sister is getting her own comic book series and it is happening so so soon.”

Her tweet confirmed the news already shared by Marvel Comics on their official website where they wrote: “SHURI will bring a domestic conflict to the princess’s table.

“While she is the most at home in her lab, working to keep her country at the forefront of science and technology, Wakanda is missing its leader.

“Without T’Challa around, Shuri will have to decide if she will forego her own passions in order to stand up for her nation.”

Speaking further on the upcoming series, Okorafor told Bustle (A US magazine): “Shuri is an African young woman of genius level intelligence.

“She is obsessed with technology and has travelled spiritually so far into the past that she’s seen Wakanda before it was Wakanda.

“The Ancestors call her Ancient Future. And she’s super ambitious. What do I love about her? All that and more.”

Marvel further stated that Okorafor, who is an acclaimed Afrofuturist writer, will write the series with art from Leonardo Romero.

Okorafor’s works are usually multi layered stories centred around women and girls; drawing inspiration from her Nigerian roots.

Her first adult novel, ”Who Fears Death”, won the 2011 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel.

It was a 2011 Tiptree Honor Book and was nominated for the 2010 Nebula Award.

She also won the Wole Soyinka Prize for Literature in Africa.

In July 2017, Okorafor announced via Twitter that ”Who Fears Death” was picked by HBO to become a TV series.

Novelist and ‘Game of Thrones’ producer, George R.R. Martin, is on the project as an executive producer.(NAN)

Enugu based singer, Morris, raises the game with new song, ‘Oluchukwu’

 

                                  Okwor Oluchuwku Morrison

Fast rising Enugu born and bred musician, Okwor Oluchuwku Morrison, aka ‘Morris’ is about to change the face of music in Nigeria with his unique style of music which has since been the talk of the town in the east where he is currently based.
After the successful release of his previous single titled ‘Africa Baby’ which portrays the beauty of African women, he is set to release a new self titled single ‘Oluchukwu’. According to Morris, the song tells the story of a little boy destined for greatness inspite of the hurdles he must grapple with on his way to success.
“This music, as it stands for in Igbo means ‘Work of God’. It tells the tale of a boy who is destined for greatness despite challenges and obstacles”, he said.
Speaking further, Morris who is currently signed to Jehty Incorporated Record Label explained why he named the song after himself.
He said; “Naming the song ‘Oluchuwku’, which is my real name, wasn’t something that took much thinking because as the name implies, ‘Work of God’, already passes the message. My life and journey so far has been all because of God and I couldn’t help but sing to that.”
Morris who strongly believes he is an act to look out for in a competitive music industry like Nigeria’s said ‘Oluchukwu’ was inspired by his challenging journeys of life.

“Oluchukwu was inspired by my life’s journey so far from the time I lost a dear one to the struggles in secondary school. Also, now that I’m in the higher institution, certain encounters I have had with friends and family inspired it too. Some were good times, some were bad times but in all things I give God the glory, he said.
