Despite South African President and authorities from Australia making enquiries about the deaths of it citizens, from the unfortunate five-story building of a guest house in Synagogue Church of All Nations which collapsed on Friday, the church is yet to release a list, despite the pressure.
Although the South African government had Tuesday claimed that 67 of its citizens perished in the collapsed building but rescue operators are faced with the challenge of identifying the nationalities of the dead and survivors, owing to what they alleged as reluctance from SCOAN to produce the names.
The South West spokesperson for the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA Ibrahim Farinloye, yesterday said, additional 17 victims comprising 12 women and five men were yesterday discovered under the rubble, which makes the figure rise to 80. We will continue working until we get to the last level of excavation because it is possible that more bodies are still trapped underneath the rubble, he said.
A South African man, Shadrack Mamzini who claims he was on visitation to Synagogue Church of All Nations and was actually taking pictures of the church buildings before the collapsed on Friday says he was glad he also captured the strange aircraft which came too low for , before collapsed few minutes after. But then, look at the picture well, there is something still wrong with it, what is it?
If you care to know what he said, find his words below, but don’t forget to tell us what actually is wrong with the photo.

The Lagos State Government has not paid all doctors working in government owned hospitals their August salaries for participating in the recently concluded Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, strike, which took place throughout the Federation.
It will be recalled that the doctors went on a nationwide strike, after the federal Government failed to meet their demands. The strike was on for two months, but was called off when Ebola hit some parts of the country. Before however calling off the strike, the doctors warned that no participant will be dealt with by the government, which was one of the factors emphasised on while calling off the strike.
Some of their demands back then included: the government improving residency programme in Nigeria, increasing doctors’ hazard allowances from N5,000 to N100,000 and also improving facilities in hospitals all over the country, which are yet to be met. We hope they get paid to avert another strike.

The Christian of Nigerian, CAN, an umbrella body for the country’s teeming Christians, descended into full-blown crisis Wednesday with the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria making public its decision to pull out of the fold over the way the Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor-led executive is running the association.
The Catholic bishop’s action is perhaps the first time in the association’s 37-year history that any of its five blocs would pull out over alleged poor leadership and politicization of the association. CAN was formed in 1976 by five Christian blocs in the country: the Christian Council of Nigeria; the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria; Organisation of African Instituted Churches, and the Evangelical Fellowship of West Africa.

‘This are evil hands at work because I know people who have to make human sacrifices in order to be promoted in the spiritual realm…I know some people will vilify me for making this known.’
He also accused the SCOAN prophet for coming to Ghana some time ago and causing four people during a programme he held.
‘Look at what is happening to him. You came for a programme in Ghana and that led to the death of four people. You also woke up one day and a whole building collapsed, killing over forty people.’

Lord of Ajasa is angry! The one-time popular rapper in a new interview with Punch has said today’s musicians do not deserve the endorsements they get. He went as far as saying they sing rubbish, stating that he should be praised and rewarded for being one of the pioneers of the music industry. Read what he told Punch and tell us if you agree with him.
“I pioneered indigenous rap music and today it has become lucrative and fashionable. Yet, these young musicians shy away from that fact. They try to hide it. If I don’t blow my trumpet, nobody will do it. But I deserve an award, recognition and endorsement because a lot of people look up to me as their mentor

El-Rufai described the CAN president as an “irresponsible” leader and asked him to come out and tell Nigerians may be the same impounded jet was the one ‘donated’ to him in 2012. He also said he should clarify if the jet was actually registered as a commercial aircraft or the aircraft serves as both private and commercial one. Lol, I just think El-Rufai is always the wrong person to fight with. Read the full statement by Premium Times after the cut; His words were heavy though.
I won’t believe a woman would ordinarily help her husband rape another woman, neither will I believe a man will voluntarily ask his wife to help him rape a girl, except there is more .
