Pastor Oyedepo's Slap Suit goes to Appeal Court

Robert Igbinedion, the lawyer suing on behalf of the
teenage girl humiliated with a dirty slap by Bishop
Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church in a video
which gained worldwide publicity, has filed an
appeal challenging the judgement which gave
victory to the wealthy Bishop in an Ogun State High
Court two months ago.
The appeal (Suit No: MT/73/2012) stated that the
trial Judge, Mobolaji Ojo placed unnecessary and
undue reliance on technicalities of the case to the
detriment of the suit.
Mr. Igbinedion said that the judge erred in law by
concluding that a better affidavit, which he filed to
replace the former one after a preliminary
objection was raised by the respondent, contained
fresh issues.
The appeal faulted the grounds on which the
judgement was held. The appeal stated that
plaintiff lawyer did not necessarily need to prove his
presence during the particular service or show the
date or time since he had already presented video
evidence that the incident actually took place.
Igbinedion also said he did not necessarily need to
present the victim, whom he represented as 'Miss
Justice' in the suit, before pursuing the case.
"The Learned Judge failed to advert his mind to
the Preamble to the Fundamental Rights
(Enforcement Procedure) Rules, 2009 which
obliged him to encourage and welcome public
interest litigations in the human rights field on
behalf of the poor, the illiterate and the vulnerable,
amongst others", the appeal statement read.
It also challenged the judgement for not ratifying
the issue of the court's jurisdiction on the matter as
raised by the respondents' counsel in a preliminary
objection before going ahead to dismiss the suit.
"Where the Respondent is challenging the court’s
jurisdiction to hear the Application, he may apply
to the court for an order striking out the suit or
setting aside the proceeding", it said.
The lawyer also noted that the judge held that the
victim of the slap was a 'fictitious character' who is
non-existent and has no standing,
In that judgement, the judge asked: "Who is Miss
Justice, how old is she, what is her standing in life,
what are her particulars? The court must be able to
ascertain and cannot be left to speculate on the
identity of the person whose right is being sought to
be enforced by declaratory orders, award of
damages and injunctive orders. The court cannot
issue and make order in favour of a ghost victim/
applicant. If I may ask, should this action succeed,
who is going to be the beneficiary of the monetary
award sought.”
Mr. Igbinedion in the appeal suggested that that
view, by the judge is irrelevant, discriminatory and
deliberately calculated to arrive at a favourable
He wrote: "The Appellant has by his further and
better Affidavit given many privileged reasons why
he cannot disclose the complete identity of the
victim to prevent her from further harm.
"The learned trial Judge failed to advert his mind to
the provisions of Rules 32(2) (b) which states that
in presenting a matter to the court, a lawyer shall
disclose the identity of his clients he represents and
the person who briefed him unless such disclosure
is priviledged or irrelevant", the appealant stated
A video footage shows Bishop Oyedepo of the Living
Faith Church, also known as Winners Chapel,
during an alter call in his church at Ota, where,
during an alter call, accused a teenage girl of
witchcraft and slapped her across the face for
declining witchcraft but saying she was a 'witch-
for-Christ.' The video was uploaded online and
spread cross all social media sites.
The Bishop during another service in his Church,
following the slapping footage going viral, boasted
about the act and claimed he was a 'Baba witch'

Mum shaves identical sons’ hair so teachers can tell them apart

The mother of the identical quadruplet boys shaved numbers into their hair to help teachers and classmates tell them apart

THESE cute quads have been given a head start on their classmates.
The mother of the identical quadruplet boys shaved numbers into their hair to help teachers and classmates tell them apart.
Mum Tan Chaoyun, of Shenzen in China’s Guangdong Province, shaved the six-year-olds’ heads with the numbers one to four.
She took the drastic step before they started elementary school because she was worried the boys would get mixed up.
“My sons are identical, even to me,” said Tan who reckons the only difference between them is the shape of their eyelids.
“I could only tell the difference between them by having different ankle tags on them before they turned 18 months old.
“Even now, their father can’t tell which one is which.
"Sometimes he punishes the second one for something the third one has done.”

Enough is Enough- ACF to Boko Haram

The Arewa Consultative Forum has again called on the extremist Islamic sect, Boko Haram to lay down its arms, adopt dialogue and stop all violent activities.

The apex northern group also commended the efforts of the federal government to dialogue with the militants, while lampooning "those questioning Nigeria’s status as one united country."

According to a communique issued Friday in Abuja following a Board of Trustees meeting chaired by Lt. Gen. Jeremiah Useni and a National Executive Committee meeting chaired by Alhaji Aliko Mohammed, ACF also chided the Boko Haram sect and declared that "enough is enough."

The ACF statement signed by its spokesperson, Anthony Sani, said both meetings considered "the security challenges of the Boko Haram sect; ethno-religious crises in some states of the North and the spate of kidnappings and communal clashes across the South-East."

The meetings also examined "the widespread armed robberies in the South-West; and the militant activities and oil bunkering in the South-South."

The ACF also expressed appreciation with the efforts of northern state governors in setting up panels to help find lasting solution to the country’s security challenges and called on Nigerians to support government’s action.

The ACF also said it considered the expressions of ethnic nationalism as manifested by recent declaration of autonomy and hoisting of flags and anthems by some groups as unhelpful.

It noted that "actions which promote cleavages along ethnic and religious lines are unlikely to inspire national solidarity that must go with our relative pluralism."

The ACF also praised the actions of religious leaders whom it said took it upon themselves to promote tolerance between faiths through interdenominational breaking of fast "as hosted by Archbishop John Onaiyekan in Abuja; Archbishop Kaigama in Jos and many others who stood guard at places of worship while members of the opposite religion prayed."

It therefore called on all religious, political as well as community leaders to follow suit for collective good.

On the debate relating to the review of the constitution, the ACF objected to the concern expressed by the presidency: "It was the considered view of the meetings that, given the fact that progress comes from change through robust debates, and the fact that democracy is a contest of ideas and reasons, the debates should continue provided it is conducted with decorum and sense of patriotism."

The meetings also expressed concern about "the current state of affairs in the New Nigerian Development Company" and urged Northern state governments to look into it."

Isreal Begins Mass Deportation of Nigerians

In what looks like a crackdown on immigrants in their country, Israel has started a massive deportation of Africans comprising mainly Nigerians in what they called ‘operation clean up’.

In the last few weeks no fewer than 50 Nigerians have been deported from the middle east country for reasons ranging from what they termed illegal stay, work permit and other flimsy excuses.

Due to the recent series of offensive and racist statements made by Israeli politicians, African diplomats in Israel are afraid to walk down the street, said African ambassadors in Israel during a meeting with Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon.

The meeting, which was attended by the ambassadors of Angola, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia and the Ivory Coast, was recently held in the Foreign Ministry’s offices in Jerusalem, Yedioth Ahronoth, an Israeli newspaper reported.This was after the wife of the Ghanian ambassador was arrested by Israeli police where she was on shopping in Tel Aviv.

Israeli’s claim that immigrants are responsible for the ongoing series of Molests and muggings committed in their country is a way of calling a dog a bad name in order to hang it.

Reports from Tel Aviv where most of the immigrants live show that most of them now hide inside their apartments without going to work for fear of being arrested while on the street. ’Many Nigerians living in Israel are very law abiding and go their normal businesses’ said an official of the Nigerian community who doesn’t want his name in print.

The recent crackdown has seen Israeli authorities

arresting Nigerians with families and taking them to detention camps sometimes with their very under aged children where they face harsh punitive measures and untold hardship before being deported to their country.

To worsen the situation, the Nigerian Embassy officials have never intervened in this ugly incidents being meted on Nigerians, our source revealed

Mr Iweka [real name withheld] from Enugu state said he has been living in Israel legally since twelve years working in a restaurant but was deported on the orders of his employer who wouldn’t want to pay his accumulated gratuity. He was arrested in his apartment by over twenty security agents and chained both legs and hands and bundled into a van even after showing them his valid papers and driven to prison. His lawyer took his case to court and after spending two months in the prison under harsh conditions was deported without concluding his case. He described is ordeal as a racist, barbaric and unhuman.

Member of the Israeli Knesset Shlomo Molla (Kadima) has warned that, “The State has failed to do its diplomatic due diligence .No one wants to migrate here if they’re doing well… It doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t try to send them back, but these events – abusing them like that – that’s wrong.

“I’ve seen case where people where physically hurt. If that’s not incitement – what is?” he wondered.

Member if Israeli Knesset K Dov Khenin (Hadash) read testimonies given by teens suspected of assaulting migrants, detailing the violent abuse they had perpetrated. He further deplored the government’s actions against them.
