The Senate, on Tuesday, asked the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to sack service chiefs as a result of their failure to secure Nigerians.

The Senate decision, which is the third it would pass this year, followed a motion by Senator Kashim Shettima on the recent killing of 43 rice farmers in Borno State by the Boko Haram insurgents.

The Senate asked Buhari to replace the security chiefs with new ones “immediately”.

The red chamber also asked Buhari to restructure and remodel the nation’s security architecture.

Apart from that, the chamber demanded a probe into the allegations of corruption and financial leakage levelled against some top hierarchy of the military.

The Senate asked Buhari to aggressively negotiate with the nation’s neighbouring countries for multinational cooperation in order to strengthen the war against insurgency.

It directed the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, NEMA and NEDC to provide succour and psychological support for the families of the victims.

It also sought proper welfare for soldiers at the war front and proper resettlement and support for the families of the fallen soldiers.

It urged the federal and state governments to address issues fueling insecurity.

It similarly called for massive recruitment into the military and the police force.

The Kaduna Electric Distribution Company last Wednesday disconnected electricity supply to the home of late Alhaji Shehu Shagari, the Second Republic President of Nigeria, over unpaid bills estimated to be over N6m.

Occupants of the house, including late Shagari wives and relations, were saved from darkness, as the light was later reconnected the same day, following the intervention or a surety who promised to settle the bill.

A KAEDCO official at the Sokoto business office, who pleaded not to be named, informed our correspondent that the light was reconnected on a strong commitment to settle the outstanding bill by an anonymous surety. He, however, did not disclose the anonymous surety.

KAEDCO spokesman, Abdulaziz Abdullahi, who confirmed the disconnection of the late President home located on Sama Road, in Sokoto, said, “The bill has not been paid since the former president died in December 28, 2018, at the age of 93.

“The company has given enough grace for them to settle the bills before the disconnection.”

A family source disclosed that prior to Shagari’s death; the state government footed the electricity bills of the former leader.

However, a Sokoto State government official who spoke to our correspondent on condition of anonymity said, “You know the welfare of the late president’s family rests solely on the Federal Government, if the state government assists, it is just out of compassion and respect for the late President.”

‘It’s A Lie’!!! Pastor Faith Edeko Rubbishes Romance Tale With Apostle Johnson Suleman

Pastor Faith Edeko, the woman at the center of an adultery allegation, has cleared the air on the matter, rubbishing the claims by one Pastor Mike Davids that she is sleeping with the Senior Pastor of the Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman.

Pastor Edeko, the pastor-in-charge of the ‘Home of Elevation’ branch of the OFM, Abuja, in a viral video following the publication of the story, denied she is having an affair with Apostle Suleman. Pastor Faith, in the video, said that the man who leveled the allegation is her former husband, as they have divorced after abandoning her for years, adding that Apostle Suleman is only her benefactor.

Taking a swipe at Pastor Davids for the accusation, Pastor Edeko declared:

“Mike you don’t deserve anything good in your life. This is the height you will tell the world and, of course, they will throw stones because that is the only thing a man will say to a woman after leaving her for years. This is the only thing you can say.

I know you drink but I don’t know it has gotten to this height. Just listen to yourself; a man who brought me up, my family knows him, he adopted me as His child, I stayed with him, even when I was not married, I was still single when I met him. And you confirmed it in your video, listen to yourself, Mike

Apostle Suleman will call me to a hotel and I will pass the night there but you didn’t bother because you knew I was a virgin; can you listen to yourself?

I kept my virginity for that long and you married me a virgin. I stayed with this man that long still as a virgin, and he didn’t deflower me. So, the best time to sleep with me was when I was married? You don’t deserve anything good in your life; thank God you told Nigerians you met me a virgin. What I didn’t do when I was single, I now started doing it when I was married? A woman who gave birth will still be bleeding after six months…

I was still at Osogbo after six months, then how did I transport myself to OFM Auchi. I am doing only this because of Mitchel and Apostle Suleman that you are dragging.”

Meanwhile, in an Instagram post-Monday afternoon, Apostle Suleman also reacted to the subject in a passing manner. He wrote: “IGP orders probe on me? Where, when? Maybe my ghost. Just reading stories now. Please discard. There is no such thing. Bad press really sells fast.

IGP Orders Probe Of Apostle Suleman For Allegedly ‘Sleeping With Pastor’s Wife’ [VIDEOS]

Mohammed Adamu, the inspector-general of police (IGP), has directed the probe of Apostle Johnson Suleman, founder of Omega Fire Ministry, for allegedly sleeping with his female minister.

The investigation comes on the back of a petition by Mike Davids, a former cleric at the church, that Suleman allegedly slept with Faith Edeko, his wife, who currently heads the Abuja branch of Omega Fire Ministries in Utako.

In the petition, written by V.C Ezenagu & Associates, his counsel, Davids also accused Suleman of threatening his life and denying him access to his three children.

According to PUNCH, the IGP’s directive was contained in a letter dated January 5 and addressed to the deputy inspector-general of police, force intelligence bureau in Garki, Abuja.

The letter, with reference number CB:7000/IGP.SEC/ABJ/Vol.515/561, was signed by Iliya Doma, the principal staff officer II to the IGP.

“I attach herewith a copy of a letter dated December 30, 2020, with its attachments received from V.C Ezenagu & Associates on the above-underlined subject. The Inspector-General of Police directs that you treat. Accept the assurances of my esteemed regards,” the letter partly read.

In the petition, Davids said he met Suleman while in school with the pair eventually becoming very close friends.

He said the apostle would later ordain him a pastor in his church on June 9, 2006, adding that he served for over 15 years before he eventually left the church in 2019.

To buttress his point, Davids attached his pastoral certificate as well as license number 125 to the petition.

Davids also shared three videos on his social media pages wherein he bared lurid details of his allegations against Suleman.

Posted by Davids Mike on Sunday, January 24, 2021

According to the petitioner, trouble started when Suleman was planning to set up a gospel television station and had requested the assistance of his wife who was a broadcaster with NTA at the time.

He said it was during one of his wife’s visits to his place that the “clergyman slept with her”, explaining that his marriage has collapsed since then.

“Apostle Suleman has given her a branch of the church in Utako, Abuja to head without permission. I am calling on Pastor David Oyedepo, Pastor Paul Enenche, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Pastor Margaret Idahosa, CAN, PFN,” he said in of the videos.

“Apostle Suleman has damaged my life. I have not seen my wife and children for two years and Apostle Suleman says if I ever go near them, he will have me taken out. I have a video where he said he will make me disappear. I don’t want to lose my life.”

But reacting in a video, Edeko dismissed the claims by the petitioner, describing such as an attempt to blackmail Suleman.
