Meet The Nigerian Pastor Who Predicted Laycon Winner Of Bbnaija Lockdown Back In July

Published

on

The General Overseer of SRI Wealthy Nations Ministry Abuja, Pastor Prince Dickson, is now taking all the plaudits for predicting accurately that Olamilekan Agbeleshe, aka Laycon as the winner of the BBNaija season 5 from the first day of BBNaija Lockdown.

Back in July when he made the prediction, he was called out for dabbling in worldly stuff while others challenged the authenticity of his prophecy given that the show has nothing to do with Christianity. Well, his prediction has been fulfilled after Laycon beat Dorathy, Nengi, Vee, and Neo to win the ultimate.

Laycon was one of the 19 housemates who battled for the grand prize of N85M and has been announced the winner of the BBNaija Lockdown.

Western Togoland: We Don’t Want To Believe That There Are Any Political Groups Behind It : Oppong Nkrumah

Published

on

Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has denied the issue of government sending military men to the Volta Region to intimidate the separatist group, Western Togoland.

Speaking on the issue of the government sending military personnel to intimidate people in the area, Hon Kojo Oppong Nkrumah noted that;

“First of all it is no true that government intends to send soldiers to intimidate people in these areas. Our borders are closed, because of our battle with COVID. We sent troops across the country, there were initial complaints by our political opponents in particular that they were not comfortable with that and they interpreted it as an attack on Voltarians. It was proven to be a flat-out untruth.”

“What had happened on Friday dawn is not the first time we have seen this group go on this claim that there is an old contract that allows them to be independent and seek to express it in one way or the other, and we don’t even want to believe that there are any political groups behind it. We are dealing with it as a purely criminal act, pure infringements on the law of this country and are proceeding to treat the persons who are behind it accordingly,”he added.

The separatist group blocked major roads leading to the Volta Region last week Friday and in the process exchanged gunshots with the police.
