CAN Denies Knowledge Of Solidarity Visit, Says COZA Pastors Are On Their Own

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has disassociated itself from the purported solidarity visit to Commonwealth of Zion Assembly last Sunday.

In a statement issued on Monday, the National Director of Legal and Public Affairs, CAN, Evangelist Barrister Kwamkur Samuel Vondip, said that the purported solidarity visit and video had nothing to do with the group.

He also stated that the pastors seen in the viral video visited the church based on their personal interest, as he explained that the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, has already constituted a panel to investigate the rape allegation against the Senior Pastor of COZA, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.

The statement reads;

The attention of the President of CAN, Rev. Dr. Samson O. A. Ayokunle has been called to a report and a video clip going round that Christian Association of Nigeria has sent her officials to Commonwealth of Zion Assembly(COZA) Church to stand by the Senior Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo on the rape allegation against him.

This message is to categorically inform the Christian leaders, the general public and all lovers of truth that CAN or the President of CAN did not approve and knows nothing about such a solidarity visit.

Those who did so did it on their own. We stand by our earlier release on this issue that while we would never support any act of immorality from whatever quarter, we would not jump into passing judgement without thorough investigation of the matter.

The President of CAN is in communication with the President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Rev. Dr. Felix Omobude and has given the right to investigate the allegations to PFN and then revert to CAN. We can tell you that PFN has already constituted a panel that is investigating this matter and in less than two weeks, the outcome of the investigation will come out. We urge all our Christian brothers and sisters to know that this is the position of CAN. We would not spare anyone who is found wanting from facing appropriate disciplinary measures.

We appreciate sincerely the prayers and support of the Christians and all peace loving Nigerians for the Church and the nation.

Sanwo-Olu Urges Lagos Landlords To Consider Monthly Rents

The Lagos state government has urged stakeholders in the real estate sector to work out modalities for residents to pay house rents on monthly basis instead of yearly.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos state governor, was speaking on Thursday during a policy roundtable dialogue with real estate stakeholders held in Lekki.

The roundtable, which was themed ‘International Best Practices On Real Estate Regulations’, was organized by the Lagos State Real Estate Regulatory Authority (LASRERA).

Sanwo-Olu urged stakeholders to work hand-in-hand with the state government to address the issue of housing deficit and reduce rents to make life easier for Lagosians.

He said the current situation where residents are under pressure when their rents are due is not palatable.

Sanwo-Olu said that the housing deficit in Lagos state is huge, and urged private practitioners to play by the rules.

”The real estate can contribute 20 to 25 percent to the GDP. We need to have clear data where landlords would no longer be demanding one year rent ahead,” NAN quoted him to have said.

“Landlords should see how they can reduce yearly rent to monthly. The housing deficit in Lagos is huge and unacceptable, but the government cannot do it alone.”

The governor said it is clear that there is no proper data concerning the real estate operators in the state thus the need for the LASRERA registration portal.

“This platform will also ensure that we curb bad behaviours either on the landlord side or on the tenant side,” he explained.

“We have a deficit, and even the small one we have is not properly done. People are losing money, people are not being sincere.”

VIDEO: I Can’t Be Alive And You Insult Oyedepo My Father, I Will Kill You, Tear You Into Pieces; You Bastard! – Pastor Ibiyeomie Attacks Daddy Freeze

Pastor David Ibiyeomie of the Salvation Ministries, Port Harcourt in Rivers state went hard on OAP and leader of the Free the Sheeple movement, Daddy Freeze, for always ”insulting his father”, Bishop David Oyedepo.

Daddy Freeze has always taken to his social media handles to tackle and counter most of the things said or written by the revered clergyman, Bishop Oyedepo.

Preaching in his church recently, Ibeyiome verbally attacked Freeze, placing a curse on the day the OAP was born and calling him a “bast*rd” for insulting Oyedepo who he said is his father.

According to Ibiyeomie, Freeze is not a Nigerian but a Somalian who was born inside a ship.

”Insult me I wouldn’t talk but insulting Oyedepo…..that Bast*rd! Tell him, any day I hear him talk about Oyedepo….do they know his father? Does Daddy Freeze have a father? That half-caste who is a Somalian. The day I hear him talk about Oyedepo again, I will deal with him.

Oyedepo may not talk but I can’t be alive and you insult my father.

Who gave birth to him? If he has a father, let him show us his father’s picture. Somebody that they gave birth to on the ship. Does he look like a Nigerian? That’s a Somalian.”

Continuing, the visibly angry clergyman said:

Oyedepo may not talk but I can’t be alive while you insult my father. I curse the day he was born. I can’t be alive and you insult my father. I will tear you into pieces, you Bast*rd!

People who have fathers don’t insult fathers. He is insulting him because he has no father. You can never insult a father if you have a father. He has no father.

Tell him o. Tell him. This is the last time he talks about Oyedepo again. He is a bast*rd. Does he have a father? Who is his father? Let him show his father if he has a father?”

He went on to attack Freeze over his failed marriage. He also insinuated that Freeze doesn’t have a good job as a broadcaster.

”Man who cannot marry. He has no wife. He can’t manage his home and he is coming to talk on Television. Is he not the wife who left him? A man who is a broadcaster? Does he have a good job? ”

Ibiyeomie further stated that he will get Daddy freeze arrested soon.
