May God save Abuja pastor’s killers, says Adeboye

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said the church does not want justice for its slain member, Mrs. Eunice Olawale.
Adeboye said the church was only interested in the salvation of the souls of the killers.
Eunice, a mother of seven, was murdered while preaching the gospel in Kubwa, a satellite town in Abuja around 5am on Saturday.
Adeboye, who was on his way to Lagos after a crusade in Abuja, paid a condolence visit to the family at their Gbazango Estate, Kubwa residence around 6am on Tuesday.
While praying for the family of the deceased, he said, “Lord, we just want to say thank you. We pray that you will keep this family in your hand, and that you will be with them. We pray you will comfort and defend them. They too will finish well. We are praying that all the perpetrators of this crime will be found. We are not asking for justice, we are only praying that you will save their souls. It will be glorious if they can come and testify that ‘before we were murderers, but now, we are pastors.’
“As for these little children, give them wisdom; let them succeed and excel. As for the church, you will comfort us. As a result of what had happened, instead of decrease, increase your church. Stand by them and keep away evil from them.”
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has called for a “thorough” investigation into the killing of Olawale by unknown persons.
In a resolution the House passed in Abuja on Tuesday, lawmakers asked the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, to investigate the attack and to ensure that the killers were brought to justice.
The motion on the killing was moved by a lawmaker from Ondo State, Mr. Babatunde Kolawole, under matters of urgent public importance.
Lawmakers also asked the IG to deploy more policemen in Kubwa and environs.
The resolution added, “We urge the FCT administration to demolish all shanties across FCT in which miscreants are said to be hiding and from which they attack innocent citizens.”
The session was presided over by the Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara.
Members passed the motion in a unanimous voice vote and observed a minute’s silence in honour of the late evangelist.
Also, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria has condemned the gruesome murder of Olawale.
The PFN in a statement signed by its National President, Dr. Felix Omobude, on Tuesday described the murder as a wicked and barbaric act perpetrated by intolerant persons.
While sympathising with the family of the deceased pastor and the RCCG, Omobude called on law enforcement agents to ensure that the perpetrators of the dastardly act face the full wrath of the law.
The PFN president, however, urged all Christians to remain calm and continue to have faith in the Nigerian project.
He further called on all Christians to continue to be fervent in their prayers for religious harmony and a better nation.

I decided to do this quick recount before it becomes over taking by event…ehm, before I forget to do so. No time to read over for errors. I'm serving it fresh and hot. On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…

Tupac Shakur’s stepfather up for parole after spending 30 years in prison

Mutulu Shakur (born Jeral Wayne Williams, August 8, 1950) is an American black nationalist and acupuncturist. He was a proponent of the Republic of New Afrika and a close friend of Geronimo Pratt.

Shakur is best known for his conviction on racketeering charges following the 1979 prison escape of Joanne Chesimard (Assata Shakur) and the infamous $1.6 million robbery of a Brinks armored truck in New York in which a guard and two police officers were killed. It was later found that an illegal project by the FBI, COINTELPRO, aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and neutralizing what they considered domestic political organizations, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., had targeted Mutulu as well as many of his comrades.  Mutulu Shakur is the stepfather of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur. He was captured, convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison for leading a revolutionary group responsible for a trail of bloodshed, including the slayings of an armed guard and two New York polic…
