      Dear Mr Ossai, I really want to Correct a misconception or should I say it’s a misinformation. If you investigated properly, you would have known by now that her religion never forbids her from taking blood transfusion, rather it was her Bible trained conscience and beliefs. Mrs Peace believed in upholding Jehovah’s righteous standards which includes to abstain from blood- either by eating or transfusion. Gen 6:4b, Lev 7:26, 17:11 & 13 and finally Acts 15:29.
      If Mrs Peace lost her life trying to obey what was written as God’s commandment, do you sincerely think Jehovah God would not remember her during resurrection?Isa 25:8, John 5:28,29.

    First,Jehohovah’s witnesses do no compel any of its adherents to refuse blood. It is done base on a personal conviction that they are obeying a devine law. 2nd,no individual, Jehovah’s witness or otherwise is willing to die if there is medical avenue that can provide viable alternative to blood transfusion. They come to medical institution because they would like to live. Jehovah’s witnesses will always avail themselves of best medical treatment that can be afforded as Long as it does not go counter to their scriptural convictions.

#LekkiMassacre: CNN Dares Nigeria Government, Updates Second Report (Video)

Published

on

The Cable News Network, CNN seems not done with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government with the television channel releasing another report on the shooting at the Lekki toll gate during the End SARS protests.

Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, called out CNN over its report on the incident.

He added that CNN was biased in its report and needs to be sanctioned.

The Minister also addressed a letter to the management of CNN in Atlanta.

The network, however, on Tuesday released the second report with more damning footage showing soldiers shooting at unarmed protesters on October 20, 2020.

The second report also shows the Commander, 81 Division, Brig.Gen Ahmed Taiwo, admitting before the judicial panel in Lagos that military men had live ammunition in their weapons while at the tollgate.

CNN also noted that the statement of Brig.Gen Taiwo contradicts that of the Minister who had claimed last week that the army fired blank bullets.

It was also revealed in the new report, the moment when protesters were running as soldiers open fire at the tollgate.
