The Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide has accused the Presidency of being flippant with its handling of insurgency in Nigeria.
Over 100 deaths have been recorded in the last seven days following attacks by suspected members of outlawed sect Boko Haram. Just as families of victims of attack on Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, Yobe State mourned, the federal government celebrated Nigeria’s centenary in a manner many criticised as unreasonable for a country who just lost potential future leaders.
The accusation directed at the presidency was made by the Spiritual Father of Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide (Ayo ni O), the Most Reverend Samuel Adefila Abidoye, in a statement yesterday.
Abidoye contended that with government having had encounter with the sect for about four years, it has enough time to have developed a strong data on the sect, as well as their modus operandi, their movement, base and source of weapon through adequate intelligence gathering.
“News of the last attack of the Islamist sect against Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, Yobe State, filtered in while performing the turning of the sod the Vicarage of the Spiritual Head of the church at their International Conference Centre, Abuduka Village, Orile Igbon, near Ogbomosho, Oyo State, and worried at the wanton slaughter of about 50 school children at a go,” Abidoye said as he bared his mind over the incident.
“The impunity with which the Boko Haram sect operates in the country is a cause for serious concern. They have more or less limited their operation to Yobe, Adamawa and Borno States. This limited scope of operation should have been of strategic advantage to the Nigerian armed forces, to the point of being able to harness the resources of the country and frontally confront their menace. How long would Nigerians have to wait for this security problem to be solved?” he queried.
The cleric expressed worry that if the Boko Haram issue remains unsolved till the next general elections, it would portend grave danger to most Nigerians, especially those living in the North.
“The fast approach of the next general election should worry the Presidency. I must confess to you that many people in the North are not feeling safe at the moment. We live in fears every day. Miscreants and never-do-wells will exploit the general spate of insecurity to cause problems during the elections and put the own nation in peril.”
Abidoye therefore called on the security agencies to improve on their intelligence gathering capabilities, saying that only this gives the nation upper hand on the Boko Haram issue.
“I lived in the United Kingdom for 49 years before taking my present position, and I can tell you that the Boko Haram sect is nothing compared with for instance, the IRS in Britain. The British Government relied heavily on intelligence gathering to keep them abreast and ahead of dissident organisations within and without the country. I want to enjoin the same modality on our own government too,” he said.
Femi Otedola Reacts To Lekki Tollgate Shooting
Nigerian businessman, Femi Otedola has finally reacted to the shooting that took place at Lekki Tollgate, Lagos on Tuesday.
Information Nigeria recalls men dressed in military wears opened fire on unarmed #EndSARS protesters, who convened at the area.
Otedola took to his Instagram page on Sunday to commiserate with the families of those who lost their lives in the unfortunate incident.

“The horrors that have been unfolding in our country have left me filled with sadness. I deeply commiserate with those who have lost their loved ones and as a father, I share the sentiment of my three daughters who protested in Lagos and London. As a young boy of 16, I participated in the ‘Ali Must Go Protest’ of 1978, so I understand the determination of our youths who rightly want our country to be better. We must all do our part to make Nigeria great! I will continue to do my own quota in providing for those who are most in need of support in our country in these tough times .…F.Ote💲”

In his words;
“Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.
Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.
The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own.
my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue
we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price
I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you
While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”
Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.
If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”

Youths Burn Down Sanwo-Olu’s Mother’s House In Lagos (VIDEO)
Lagos youths have set the family house of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on fire.
This was after the Governor said that no nobody was killed during the shooting by soldiers at Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
Sanwo-Olu had debunked claims that the soldiers opened fire and killed some peaceful protesters.
Recall that men of the Nigerian Army reportedly opened fire on protesters following the declaration of 24 hours curfew by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwolu.
Bullets fired by security operatives hit some persons and at least two persons have been confirmed killed by the police and many injured
Voices in viral footage blamed the shootings on soldiers.
However, the angry youth attacked several important places such as Nigeria Port Authority, TVC News, and the family house of the Governor where his mother resides.
After Governor @jidesanwoolu said the "soldiers shot in the air to disperse the peaceful protesters." And thar their's no fatalities
