Prophet Temitope Joshua The founder of The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Ikotun, Lagos, Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, has reportedly revealed to members of his church on Sunday that members of the Boko Haram Islamic sect may soon attack yet another church in the country. A member of SCOAN, Pili Makubalo told newsmen that Joshua said a big church in Nigeria could soon be attacked by members of the Islamic sect.

According to Makubalo, the prophecy was revealed during a sermon at the church auditorium.

Though, Joshua did not name the church or the location, he however said that the impending attack could trigger off more political crises in the country. The SCOAN prophet therefore ordered his followers to pray since according to him, many people could die during the attack.

(Reuters) - Three people were killed and two injured on Sunday when a single-engine airplane crashed in a field adjacent to a runway at a northern Colorado airport, authorities said.

Peter Knudson, spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board, said the Piper PA-46 aircraft went down shortly before noon near the Erie Municipal Airport, about 25 miles northwest of Denver.

"We don't know yet know if it was taking off or landing," said Knudson, adding that five people were on board the plane, which crashed in clear weather.

Roger Rademacher, assistant fire chief with Mountain View Fire Rescue, said emergency crews found two people dead inside the wreckage of the six-seat airplane when they arrived at the scene.

Two people survived the crash, Rademacher said. One was transported by ground ambulance to a nearby hospital and the other survivor was airlifted to a Denver hospital.

Rademacher said that he did not know the extent of the survivors' injuries or their conditions.

The names of the dead and injured have not been released.

Knudson said investigators with the NTSB and the Federal Aviation Administration were at the crash site to try to determine its cause.


Suspected assassins have killed the Head of Operations, Security Unit, University of Lagos, Mr. Sunday Adejumo.

The 50-year-old was shot dead at a beer parlour on Oyenuga Street in the Akoka area of Lagos on Friday evening.

Our correspondent learnt that Adejumo on the fateful night was in the joint with three of his friends when some strange faces stormed the pub.

They were said to have headed straight for their target where he sat and hit him in the chest, before firing shots at him.

The gunshots were said to have caused confusion in the area.

PUNCH Metro learnt that the deceased died some minutes later because he could not get help on time.

When our correspondent visited Akoka on Saturday, he observed that the area was quiet, while the beer parlour was locked.

A resident, who did not identify himself, said the owner of the drinking house had been arrested and was being interrogated at the Bariga Police Station.

He said, “The incident happened around 8.30pm on Friday. We suddenly heard gunshots and we all rushed into our different houses because we did not know what exactly happened.

“It was later we learnt that one of those in the beer parlour was killed.

“It was not a robbery because they did not steal anything or injure anybody else. Immediately they killed him, they left.”

A source, who pleaded anonymity, told our correspondent that Adejumo might have been killed by suspected cultists.

He said, “When the gang got in, they went to where he was sitting. They had different weapons, ranging from cutlasses to guns.

“One of them went to him, hit him in the chest and he fell down. He then brought out a gun and shot him point blank.

“On the table where he was drinking with his friends were a pay slip, his ATM cards and his car key.”

Our correspondent learnt from another source that the men wanted to go away with the deceased’s ash coloured Pathfinder, marked, Lagos APP 404 CM, but could not.

“We don’t know exactly what their intention was. But there were blood stains on the car and the car key also had blood stains. We suspected they wanted to drive it away, but abandoned it when they saw it was not responding,” he said.

Another police source told PUNCH Metro that the corpse of the deceased was taken to the police station late in the night from where it was taken to the Yaba mortuary.

It was learnt that Adejomo’s car and that of one of his friends with whom he went to the pub, were taken away by the police.

Our correspondent gathered that his three friends were also being interrogated.

A source said, “Since he had been going out to drink, he had never gone out with these friends. So, they are also suspects. Although one of them claimed to be injured during the incident, there may be more to it than meets the eye.”

The Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Lelma Kolle, confirmed the incident.

He added that the Bariga Divisional Police Officer led his men to the scene where they found the deceased in a pool of blood.

He said, “Investigations revealed that the man parked his car a distance away from where he was drinking. The police also discovered that there was a blood stain on the car and the car key was found within the vicinity, also with blood stains. This can only mean that after they killed him, they attempted to go away with his car. They actually succeeded in opening the car because there were blood stains on the car seat. But the car did not move because of the security system in it.

“The owner of the bar has been arrested and he has made statements. We cannot categorically say whether this was a robbery or an assassination plot. The matter is still under investigation.”

Our correspondent called UNILAG, and a former registrar of the institution, Mr. Olu Sodimu, said the school would call back.

However, an official of the university in the information department confirmed the shooting.

The official, who pleaded anonymity, said, “We heard that he went to a party with some of his friends and there were gunshots. He was one of the people hit during the incident. That was what we heard. We are not aware that he died. I am just hearing that from you and I will have to confirm that information by making calls.”

Wife Battles Police Inspector To Death!

A police Inspector attached to the Apapa Division, Lagos, Inspector Danjuma Daniel, reportedly died on Thursday while he was engaged in a fight with his wife.

It was gathered that couple who live at the Ijeh Police Barracks, Obalende, got into a scuffle which later transformed into a physical combat. Report says both couple fell from the balcony of their apartment, a two-storey building, sustaining serious injuries. However, while they were being rushed to the hospital, Daniel gave up.

The wife was however treated and has since been discharged. She is simply identified as Ada and a trader.

Daniel’s first Son, Emmanuel, told Punch that he was informed about his father’s death on the telephone.

He explained that he was staying with an uncle in the Mile 2 area of the state.

“I don’t know what could have caused the fight. I was not at home. Dad and mum have lived in this barracks for about 10 years now.

“We were formerly staying in Nasarawa State where dad initially served. In Lagos, I don’t stay with them, but my two sisters do. Mum has returned from the hospital, and she is back home now, but she cannot talk to anyone for now,” He said.


At over 40, Fuji music star, Pasuma Wonder, is still a bachelor, YES INTERNATIONAL! findings have just uncovered. Not only that, the Orobokibo exponent whose real names are Wasiu Ajibola Odetola also has almost half a dozen children, all out of wedlock. Sources who know him well told us that even before stardom came, he was already a father.

His first child, a girl named Wasilat, was born over 20 years ago. There are also others like Amirah, Khadijat, Barakat, Haliyah and so on.

The names of the children’s mothers are Kemi (Wasilat); Lara (Haliyah); Ganiat (Khadijat and Amirah)…Of course, the above women are not the only ones in the life of the husky-voiced musician who grew up in Mushin, Lagos.

In the showbiz sector for instance, he’s alleged to have dated Ayo Adesanya (an actress); Remi Surutu (also an actress); She Baby (an artiste); Doyin Aggrey (a presenter); Bisi Ibidapo-Obe (an actress); Bukky Black (an actress); Tayo Odueke (an actress), among many others. From Kwara State, Pasuma was born on November 27, 1967.

He has over 20 albums to his credit; among them Recognition, Choices, Americana, Joker, Exporter And Importer, Maintain And Sustain, Initiator and Orobokibo, which thrust him on to limelight in 1995 soon after its release. One of his close friends told us that he’s still not married because all the women he trusted before God elevated him disappointed him and broke his heart. “So, now that God has blessed him, he still finds it difficult to trust and believe any of them.

But out of all his women, he came close to marrying Ayo Adesanya years back, until something scuttled it. As his friend, I’m also praying that sooner than later, he should be able to settle down. That’s just my prayer for him.

Just like many others who also love him and wish him well”. Inspired by K1 de Ultimate in 1984 to embrace music, Pasuma attended Mushin National Primary School and Nigerian Model High School, also in Mushin. He later toyed with studying English at the Lagos State University, but no one seems to know how the move ended.
