A religious organisation under the auspices of Brethren For Christ Empowerment Organisation (BCEO) has exonerated the Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Church, Dr. Paul Enenche from the arrest of 10 activists in his church last Sunday.

Apostle Kingsley Madaki, coordinator of the group, while speaking to journalists in Abuja yesterday in a press briefing, said that the organization has done its investigation into the matter and have found out that Enenche was not aware of the arrest, until it was done.

The Apostle who explained that the church of God is for everybody-the saved and unsaved- said that Pastor Enenche has been a forerunner in winning souls, so he could not have ordered for the arrest of the youths he would want to be saved for Christ.

According to him, from their investigation, the arrest of the youths was done outside the church premises by security operatives, without the consent and knowledge of the Church senior Pastor.

“While we condemned the arrest of the youths in the manner it was done, from our investigation on the matter, we have to state categorically that everything that happened on that day, was done without the knowledge of Pastor Paul Enenche.

“People should stop casting aspersions at Pastor Enenche that he was the one that ordered the arrest of the youths. It is not true. Inasmuch as the activists had their ulterior motives when they visited the church, the Pastor has nothing to do with them after the service. The security personnel did their jobs because they suspected negative moves from them,” he said.

The Christian group further appealed to the security agency that to release youth, if they have gotten all the information they need from them and have found nothing incriminating about their action.

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has dismissed a viral video purporting that a member of the corps confessed to being a bandit.

The suspected bandit, Mr Abdullah Saidu, in the viral video called himself personnel of the Corps.

This is contained in a statement issued by the NSCDC Spokesperson, Mr Olusola Odumosu, in Abuja.

Newsmen report that Saidu was arrested in connection to a group of armed bandits terrorising some parts of Koton Karfe Local Government Area of Kogi.

The spokesperson said that the NSCDC has set up a team to investigate the available records to confirm the authenticity of Saidu’s claims that he was the corps personnel.

“The general public shall be adequately briefed on subsequent findings.“Based on the aforementioned, the purported video where the alleged suspect openly confessed to the crime did not in any way give credence to or affirm his membership to the Corps.

“Experience has shown that criminals are fond of impersonating security operatives in order to divert attention, subvert investigation or get away with the crime,” he said.

Odumosu further noted that the NSCDC was saddled with the responsibility of protecting lives and property amongst others.

“The Corps will not in any way condone any saboteur of national security or sponsorship of criminals.”He reiterated the Corps’ zeal to discharge its statutory mandates without compromise but with humility and integrity.

He said the NSCDC will continue to synergise with sister agencies to combat crimes in the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari said on Sunday he had appointed a board for the NNPC and directed that it should be incorporated within six months, a move that could allow it to sell shares in the future.

The President signed the petroleum bill into law last month which has been in the works for nearly two decades, aiming to overhaul the sector and turn the state-owned oil company into a private firm.

The new oil law requires NNPC to be incorporated within six months, Buhari said in a statement, appointing Ifeanyi Ararume as NNPC chairman and its current Chief Executive Mele Kyari to lead the firm.

Kyari has said NNPC could consider an initial public offering (IPO) within three years. The incorporation could pave the way for NNPC to sell shares.

Buhari said last month that NNPC made its first profit in 44 years in 2020.
