Video: TB Joshua Predicted Movie Theater Massacre

Published

on

No one envisaged the massacre that was about to unfold when a masked gunman entered through the emergency exit of a movie theatre in Colorado, premiering the closing part of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

In a senseless act of carnage, James Holmes, a PhD student at the University of Colorado, shot 70 people, leaving 12 dead and scores more critically wounded in what has been classified as the largest mass shooting in United States history.

With shock still reverberating around the nation and film industry, a YouTube video has been released claiming that a Nigerian Pastor, who has a remarkable penchant for accurate revelations, had actually predicted the incident one month earlier.

“In the nation of America, they should pray,” the YouTube clip showed Pastor T.B. Joshua saying on Sunday 10th June 2012 during a church service. “I am seeing a man carry a gun in a gathering of people and begin to shoot. A lot of people will be killed before the man will be arrested… This is homeland security.” The prophecy was broadcast live on the ministry’s media outlet, Emmanuel TV.

During the first gun scene in the movie ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, Holmes, masked and dressed in black, threw a canister emitting smoke suspected to be tear gas, which partially obscured the audience’s sight. He then brandished a rifle and opened fire on the crowd, picking his victims at random and only stopping to reload his weapon.

It was a scene “straight out of a horror film,”said Chris Ramos, who was inside the theatre. “He was just literally shooting everyone, like hunting season,” Ramos said. “There were bullet [casings] just falling on my head. They were burning my forehead,” Jennifer Seeger, one of the witnesses told reporters afterward. “Every few seconds it was just: Boom, boom, boom,” she said.

The police arrived less than 90 seconds after the first emergency calls were made and almost immediately apprehended the suspect upon their arrival at the scene. He is said to have told the police that he was ‘The Joker’, a sinister and psychotic character in Nolan’s previous adaptation of the Batman trilogy.

After the incident, US President Obama told a sombre crowd in Florida: “Such violence, such evil, is senseless. But, while we will never know fully what causes somebody to take the live of another, we do know what makes life worth living.”

Flags at the White House were lowered to hall-staff in honour of the victims. “This will be a day for prayer and reflection,” Obama said, calling for the country to unite as one and support the victims.

T.B. Joshua is a very popular religious figure in Africa, his predictions especially revered due to their consistent success rate. He is also well known for his close connections to Ghana’s President John Atta Mills, Malawi’s new female head Joyce Banda and Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangarai.

Joshua is said to have also prophesied concerning the tragic shooting in the military base of Fort Hood in November 2009. His most recent prophecies have included the demise of Malawian President Bingu wa Mutharika, the tragic plane crashes in Nigeria and Indonesia and the historic footballing success of Zambia in the African Cup Of Nations.

    He’s good in predicting Evil y can’t he predict positively. If he’s truly a man of God, he’s supose to be praying aginst it and bringing a solution to it. Nigeria is in hell and TB is a nigerian self aclaimed prophet of God. Please who that goes to his church should please help me tell him to prophecy in the name of JEHOVA the next time he will predict evil if he’s prophecy is truly from the true God.

    dis guy (tb joshua) is a thief and a complete liar. U ought to understand his antics.. Wen somfin happens, he claims to have foresee it prior to d happening just immediatly it have happened. (2) he spread d news like a rumor and when it fails, he deny not making d prophecy.. Eg 2go and facebook scandal of last week. God will surely judge him.

    Seriously this guy needs to be investigated, i don’t understand why he predicts Doom only! is he an evil prophet or what? we need answers.
    @Romanus roy & co, God Neva sent anybody to prophesies doom to his people, who does that? Satan.
    How can u call yourself man of God by always inserting fear in people.
    If he claims to be a “true prophet” how come he doesn’t have prays/answers/solutions to all his prophesies cos God has solution to everything over his people, so this lead me to my next question? how come God never gives him the solutions/prays to all this prophesies or is he hiding them. But for now i have to say he is fake!!! For those who don’t know here is what the bible says about the work of a prophet:

    To reveal the enemy and his purposes. 2 Kings 6:8-17

    Mt. 7:15. “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. … Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. …Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”

    See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant. Jeremiah 1:10

    So this pastor doesn’t seem to be doing so, Finally in my opinion this guy likes making the Headlines.

The potential for iGaming in Nigeria uncovered

Published

on

There is a growing positivity surrounding the Nigerian iGaming industry. As the nation breathes a collective sigh of relief following the announcement of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), it’s hoped that many burgeoning industries such as the world of iGaming can be allowed to flourish and bring much-needed tax revenues to the country.

Many analysts within the iGaming industry believe Nigeria has the potential to become Africa’s iGaming hub. Its domestic market is already forecast to be worth $2 billion, due largely to sports betting and the fascination with Nigerian soccer stars overseas like Odion Ighalo at Manchester United. Meanwhile, the domestic penetration of smartphones is also recognised, with some 83% of the population now owning a mobile device.

Nigeria was also a major focal point during this year’s SBC Digital Summit Africa, which was understandably conducted virtually earlier this month. Ahead of the summit, experts enrolled in the event were asked to vote on which African country offered the best foundations for iGaming operators to thrive. Nigeria outperformed every other nation, with 31% of all votes labelling Nigeria as the country with the highest potential to make a real
success of its domestic iGaming sector.

Even South Africa, which has a well-established domestic iGaming market, ranked second with just 28% of the vote. Prospective Nigerian iGaming operators should certainly take a leaf out of the book of South African iGaming brands, many of which have cultivated a strong customer base through the use of incentives and sign-up bonuses. The vast majority of offers available at platforms like Casinos.co.za, direct gamers to the safest and most reputable
platforms.

One of the main reasons that industry experts believe in Nigeria’s iGaming potential is that it already boasts an engaged target demographic. Many of its young adults are already betting on sports like soccer and boxing, and there is a feeling that introducing them to casino gaming verticals would not be too difficult a stretch. Marry that with a growing number of smartphone users, which is predicted to reach over 140 million people by 2025, and you can
see the potential for iGaming apps and web applications to provide immersive, secure gaming
on the go.

Presently, the country has three separate bodies responsible for licensing online betting activities – the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC), the Special Control Unit against Money Laundering (SCUML) and the National Office for Technology Acquisition and Promotion (NOTAP). At the time of writing, online betting at a domestic Nigerian site is strictly prohibited by law. Loopholes regarding offshore operators make it possible for
Nigerians to play elsewhere, but it seems somewhat short-sighted for the Nigerian government to steer clear of creating its own regulated, revenue-making iGaming industry.

In a nation of substantial population, supporters of developing a domestic iGaming industry in Nigeria believe that the most would be a positive step, creating new career opportunities for everyday people. This could be in customer support, game development or any other facet of an iGaming operator. All the while, generating tax revenues for the Nigerian government and helping to breathe new life into the domestic economy.

There is a general feeling that Nigeria’s gaming industries tend to follow the same path as South Africa’s. The SBC Digital Summit Africa revealed that there has been a “seismic shift” from sports betting markets to casino games in the last eight months, including live dealer tables, that’s according to Sean Coleman, CEO of the South Africa Bookmakers Association.

Live dealer games seemingly “appeal to millennials” across South Africa. Dean Finder, CEO of Evolution Services SA believes the fact that live dealer games are “not gender biased” is an opportunity to reach out to female players, which are an often “unserved market” across Africa.

For these trends to follow suit in Nigeria, operators will need to build further trust in their
games and regulatory measures to curry favour with the country’s legislature.
