A certain prophet Tibetan who was among those who predicted Buhari's victory is out for more predictions. He revealed these latest predictions/prophesies, while Speaking to Encomium.. Buhari will not die in office. God prolonged the life of King Hezekiah in the Bible and this is Buhari’s portion. He won’t die in office. He has a job to do. There is no time to waste. Mr. President-elect should hit the ground running on his first day in office because he already has the template of what he wants to do to liberate Nigeria since 2003. Remember I told the world in my Prediction 2015 book that General Buhari is not chosen by God but by the people of Nigeria to liberate them and since he is the one the people want, God answered their prayer by giving him the leadership of the country. Buhari should run the affairs of Nigeria without fear or favor because he has a limited time to do this work. Is there anything Buhari should do before moving into the Aso Rock presidential villa? Yes, if General Buhari want to run his term successfully and does not want the fate of late President Umar Yar’Adua to befall him, he must make a complete and total cleansing of Aso Rock Villa before he moves in. Between now and when he would be sworn in, General Buhari must not step into Aso Rock Villa for any meeting either in the day or in the night. continue after the cut

GROOM: Zainab and I met through a colleague 5 months ago and everything just fell in place. Yes, it seems like a short period but the truth is when you meet that person (your soul-mate) you just know. I really don't know how to explain it but you just know and there's really no point wandering around for what's not lost and wasting time. I have actually been in previous relationships of 3 years and more but this one has been very different.
I know she loves proposals and love stories but I had told her severally that I didn't believe in it. Actually that was a trick as she just understood and never expected she would get one. She actually just resigned to normality.
So today,we planned to check out wedding rings together on the Island after the exhibition When I came around, I discovered they were jewelers around and tricked her into just window shopping for rings. She found the one she really liked but I told her I couldn't afford it and maybe we should check somewhere else.
When she returned to her stand, I quickly dashed out to use the ATM and went back to the jeweller, Rings et Al to buy the ring. But I didn't know what to do as I had decided to pop the question later.
Coincidentally, I met a friend after I bought the ring who introduced me to a proposal planner exhibiting at the expo, LoveBugs Proposal. I told her I wanted to propose now at the expo and asked her to help plan it and all the rest is history.
PROPOSAL MOMENT: Zainab was invited to the exhibition ground in the guise that she would win N1million naira if she emerged a winner as 'best posed picture' while collaborating with co-exhibitors, Jide Odukoya Photography and 5D Imagery. So we had her posing for photographs right in the middle of the exhibition floor at the admiration of a large audience. With Zainab flashing various poses, the music changed to " All of Me" by John Legend and Damilola, her boyfriend, stepped out from the crowd towards her with a rose (which actually was a ring holder) and on bended knees, flipped the rose opened to reveal a ring and proposed. She was totally stunned! She experienced an unforgettable proposal moment!
I still dont understand why these people would not choose an open ground, and fight it the heck out of each other. So what if one boo chooses to be a cougar, and so what if the guy loves being 'cougared' .. What is ya own dia, erhn @Swankyjerry.. Face ya work, ooh, Uche. Leave Tonto to deal with her wahala, abi, you be the saviour ni? Before it was a fight between Tonto and Pearl, before you and the sexy designer started putting ya mouths inside.. all these Insta jabs are just child's play joor. if una all fit, pick the date and choose the arena, make we all come watch una fight it to the finish.. #innocentLook

I could not find a cab that would take me to Ikenne where my school is. I did not know they were having a festival that day and people had been asked to stay indoors. “I trekked for about two hours until I stumbled on some people who were talking. I discovered they were cultists and they accused me of eavesdropping. They added that I knew their secrets. The ladies among them descended on me.“After the ladies were done beating me, they asked the men in the group to take turns to rape me.”

Two months ago, Aladi Sule,25 was a pretty lady in her community, Idah, the headquarters of Idah Local Government Area of Kogi State. Her beauty was destroyed few weeks ago when the alleged ex-lover bathed her with acid and left her in agony. A visit to the hospital showed that Aladi knew her body had been ‘recreated’ by the acid. However, she did not know the degree of the attack. She was yet to come to terms with the fact that her right ear and right eye had been damaged by the acid. Aladi, who struggle in pains to narrate the ugly incident, said was suffering because she failed to take serious the threat of her ex-lover, Kazeem Abdullahi, who, she alleged, had come to her fruits shop, to deal with her if she failed to pack out of the house he rented for her. Sunday Vanguard gathered that Aladi and the suspect were secondary school lovers in Idah. Shortly after their secondary school education, Aladi became pregnant for him in 2011, a development that caused Aladi to moved into Kazeem’s house. The pregnancy produced a baby girl. Unfortunately, the baby died shortly after her first birthday. Kazeem was said to have married another wife in 2011 who also moved into the house with them – that was the beginning of Aladi’s travail. The new wife was said to have raised the alarm shortly after that Aladi was the reason she was unable to conceive. She alleged that Aladi had been visiting a neighboring community to affect her spiritually.

The state Commissioner for Health, Dr Dayo Akinyanju, according to the News Agency of Nigeria, announced this at a news conference in Akure on Saturday.

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore and repent. – Revelation 3:19. Much of the church today is living a lie. Many of you have been told continuously that you are saved and headed for heaven. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Many of you are heading directly to hell. The systemised lying that is going on in the church has deceived the pastors and the people alike. It is a case of the blind leading the blind. You all need to pray – fervently because many of you are “lost”. No matter what you call me, no matter how you view this issue, no matter what position you have, no matter what church you attend, you have to admit that something is wrong with the church. Below are eight facts why the church is leading you straight to hell: There is almost no evidence whatsoever that the early church had their “services” on a Sunday. They gathered together ‘from house to house’ virtually every day! People did not dress up and “go to church.” There were no denominations or separate groups with different ‘labels.’ They lived their lives together – And the apostles in Jerusalem preached everyday at a huge open-air gathering, not “hidden away” inside four walls. Church buildings do not exist in the Bible. They were invented around 200-300 AD, when the church was in serious decline.

Funmilayo Adeyemi, the arrested notorious nanny who confessed to be the mastermind of the kidnap of the Orekoya and the Esharegaran kids in Lagos confessed that her husband, Rasheed Kareem, brother-in-law, Hakeem Kareem and their mother who are still at large are members of the kidnap syndicate, which she called ‘family business.’ In an exclusive encounter by Sun with Funmilayo’s mother, Prophetess Esther Adeyemi at the police station, she looked visibly shocked at the confession of her daughter on TV.Prophetess Adeyemi claimed that her visit to the police station to identify the suspect on Monday was the first time she was seeing her daughter since she left home in 2005. “She told me that she was going back to school and never came back home. She left us eight years ago. They kidnapped and hypnotized my daughter” All has always been well till their father died. He was killed during the Ife and Modakeke fight. During that time, we were based in Calabar and as expected we were evicted from the barracks and we relocated to Osun State. He died as a Chief Superintendent of Police. Luckily, I am a prophetess and I decided to embrace my ministry. I had to get closer home and most importantly close to the mountain. By the grace of God, I became popular in Lagos and Ajah. As the first daughter of the house, I wanted the best for her, so I invested in her education. She got admission to study Survey at Osun Polytechnic. After her graduation, she worked briefly as a receptionist till one day in 2005, she came to me that she wanted to go back to school for her HND.
For 30-year-old Nweke Chinonso, the tragic events of Sunday, April 19, 2015, could as well be the handiwork of a spiritual influence or force beyond his control. “I do not know the spirit that got inside me that day,” he began. Chinonso, an Imo State indigene, was calm as he explained that he should be seen as the victim of a supernatural force that took control of him and made him to kill his neighbour, Kunle Abiola. Chinonso, who is being held at the Department of Criminal Investigations, Yaba, Lagos, told our correspondent that he only sat in the front of his house to relax that Sunday morning when the deceased and another neighbour came to trouble him. “I no longer go to church,“I was relaxing in the front of my apartment at 100, Mba Street, Ajegunle, when my neighbours, Ismail and Kunle (Abiola), told me to join them where they were sitting. I told them I would not and they started to foment trouble. “I did not want to associate with them because I don’t speak their language and I can’t trust them. But while they were troubling me where I sat, Ismail pinned my arms behind me and Kunle slapped me.
