A video has been posted on Internet showing Pastor Oyedepo boasting about his deed of valor in the case of a girl he slapped in the face in the presence of his congregation. The "man of God" boasts that the girl returned later to beg for forgiveness.
Digital Journal recently reported that, "the flamboyant Nigerian megapastor David Oyedepo...caused international outrage after a video posted on the internet showed him assaulting a teenage girl during a 2009 Shiloh service at the headquarters of his church in Otta, Ogun state, southwest Nigeria."
According to Oyedepo in the newly posted video showing him boasting about his deed: “I slapped a witch here last year. She came back in February to apologize. She begged me to please forgive her.”
Oyedepo then went on to give spiritual advise to members of his congregation who may be under attack by the forces of evil: “Starting today, the things harassing you, you will start harassing them.”
Oyedepo's attitude to the self-evident fact of his misbehavior has been attributed by many of his critics to overweening spiritual pride and arrogance. His critics say his behavior may be explained by the fact that he looks upon himself as a "man of God," with spiritual right to assault anyone he declares a witch.
The website Freethinker.co.uk reports that a group called "Stop the Violence Against Women in Nigeria" has written a petition calling on the Ogun State government and the state Ministry of Justice and the Attorney General to commence formal investigation into Oyedepo's assault of the girl. According to Freethinker, the petition said:
"It appears as though the Bishop may have violated the Criminal Code Act (chapter 29 of Part V; sections 351 to 365) of the Nigerian constitution."
One of the petitioners Banji Oyebisi, based in the United States, said:
"Our objective is try and get at least 101,000 signatures that we will submit to Governor Amosun. We want to say we are tired of this kind of conduct, violence against women."
Freethinker also reports an insightful comment by Adebowale Oriku on Transparency for Nigeria blog:
"In spite of Oyedepo’s best efforts to label the poor girl a witch, the young [girl]insisted that she was not the kind of witch Oyedepo was insinuating and that she was a ‘witch for Jesus.' Of course it may be argued that Jesus does not have a group of followers that are called witches, but this was a girl that had been browbeaten and spat upon by a man who calls himself a bishop, a man who was mentally torturing a wretched religious captive into abasing herself enough to accept being described as a witch.The girl must have been desperately inventive, after a fashion, to come up with the ‘Witch for Jesus’ fallacy of definition, which I do not think is better or worse that the description of nuns as ‘Brides of Christ.'"
Since last year when Nadia Buari was crowned the Face of Devon Soap,the new addition to the Tony Ezenna led Orange Drugs range of products,the mullato Ghanaian actress has really made a big inroad into the Nigerian movie industry called Nollywood.But beyond acting in Nollywood films,Nadia has become one of the celebrated African Film stars and this last year,gave her the N20 million deal as Face of Devon Soap.
But information reaching us is that while Nigerians are busy reading about her alleged romance with music stars D’Banj and Fally Pupa among others,the babe who has been making noisy denials,is neck deep into wrecking homes and marriages.
We exclusively scooped that Nadia as you read this,has become a live-in lover of Delta State big boy politician and oil and gas turk,Joseph Tomowu,the man who is married to the first ever Miss Delta Soap,Nora Anusionwu.
According to tale bearers,Nora who won the Orange Drugs contest years back,lives in London with her husband,Tomowu and their three kids. Tomowu’s business in oil and gas and politics,means he moves in and out of Nigeria at will,sometimes spending up to one month either in their Asaba Delta State mansion or another house which they own in Lekki,Lagos.
Unknown to many,Tomowu was said to have met Nadia in Asaba during the recording of a film and one thing led to another resulting in their becoming lovers.But things came to a head this year when the lovebirds started seeing each other too often.
According to those in the know,Joseph Temowu is alleged to have come to Nigeria since the last two months and has refused to return to his London base and his family.Those who are in the know say he was having top fun with the top actress who is permanently lodged in his mansion in Asaba and often accompanies him to Lagos and Abuja on business.
Very close persons to the couple told us,that the illicit affair came to the open when Nora allegedly informed her husband that she was coming home for Christmas with the kids,something they normally do each year,but was allegedly told by the husband that she should stay in the U.K pending his return.
The tale bearers insist that it was the presence of Nadia,the top actress cum Orange Drugs Face of Devon Soap that has made Tomowu to stop his family from their traditional Christmas visit.
As it is now,tale bearers we hear,have been inundating,ex,Miss Delta Soap,Nora of the illicit affair and a monumental war we gather,is about to take place.
Oh Nadia why?! You’re better than this and hope these are just rumors. Breaking a home is a big fat NO-NO-NO!!!
Seriously if you know about Christmas and New Year day in Liberia, It's a day when Liberians from around the country especially the Liberians youths wish for this holiday throughout the year. Many Liberians will do any thing just to be happy to celebrate this holiday until the next day (s).
According to a Reuters reporter Alphonso Toweh in Monrovia the capital city of Liberia and the main point of all war in Liberia (the Executed Mansion, the resident of Liberians president) currently Pres. Ellen Johnson ordered her security forces to impose a dusk-to-dawn curfew in the capital Monrovia on Friday the 23 of December two days before Christmas in Liberia.
The Government security forces fired tear gas to disperse thousands of youths rampaging through the city, smashing car windows in protest over late payment by the government for part-time jobs.
More On The News:
"The curfew will remain in place until the situation improves," Information Minister Cletus Sieh said. "The government is deeply concerned about this riot. We have called on the youth to remain calm as we seek ways to pay them."
A Reuters witness said youths were smashing car windows with rocks and tree branches and said several United Nations and police vehicles were damaged.
Tensions have been running high in Liberia since President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf won reelection in a November run-off against her main opposition rival Winston Tubman, who has rejected the outcome as fraudulent.
"We want our money. Ellen must pay our money," said one of the protesters carrying a stone in his hand. "They chop our money. They gave our money to UP partisans," he added referring to Johnson-Sirleaf's ruling party.
Liberia's government has a summer work programme aimed at students and involving manual labour jobs like street cleaning. No details were immediately available about how much it owes in unpaid salaries.
Johnson-Sirleaf was recently named co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts at maintaining stability in the war-scarred country, though deadly violence leading up to her reelection has scuffed her image.
Liberia is among the poorest countries in the world, and its infrastructure remains in ruins after years of civil war that ended in 2003, but it has hopes of using revenues from its vast minerals resources to rebuild.
After months of crouching in the pipeline, the news has finally been broken that CEO of Konvict Music, Aliaune Damala Badara, aka Akon has signed Wizkid, Tuface and Psquare to his Atlanta based music record label.
Akon who is currently in Nigeria made the disclosure at the launch of a new energy drink in Lagos.
He also tweeted online “In Nigeria with my brothers about to take over Africa with @2faceidibia and @wizkidayo Big up to Psquare”
Banky W also went online to confirm the deal as CEO of EME records. He tweeted “But!!! last night was kind of Epic. Bigups to the EMEazzyyy + Kovict muzic runz. Shoutout to everyone that saw the evidence”
If you recall, in September , Vanguard had reported that Wiz kid could be in serious talks with the Lonely crooner to do a remix of his (Wiz kid) Don’t dull single.
This reporter had learnt then from a source that Wiz Kid had been performing Don’t dull at an event in the UK where incidentally, the Konvict boss was also billed to perform.
Akon, this writer was told had immediately fallen in love with the song.
As expected, Wizkid had effortlessly dropped catchy lines all over this single that had eventually convinced Akon that a collaboration was essential.
After the performance, Akon had promptly walked up to Wiz Kid to announce that he would love to do a collaboration with him and that was how the deal was struck.
The remix has since hit the airwaves and got a massive reception.
However, 2face and P square, most likely, had walked into the deal following a very successful album launch this year that saw their respective music careers burn more intensely.
The news of the signing is the second of it’s kind following the deal struck between Kanye West’s GOOD Music and D’banj of the Mo’hits record in August in the year.
