COZA is not our member- CAN says

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) says the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) whose senior pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, is currently enmeshed in a rape scandal, is not one of its members. This comes a day after the Pentecoastal Fellowship of Nigeria PFN released a statement saying Fatoyinbo is not their member.

Biodun Fatoyinbo was recently accused of rape by wife of singer Timi Dakolo, Busola.

In a statement released by Kwamkur Vondip, the National director, legal and public affairs of the Christian body, CAN says it is troubled by the recent reports of sexuual assault leveled against some of the clergymen in Nigeria. The body advised Pastors to desist from having unregulated closeness with any member of his/her church so as not to make themselves vulnerable. Read the statement below

“CAN is deeply concerned about the ongoing rape allegation saga arising from a confessional statement by a former female member of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Mrs. Bisola Dakolo, against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, the senior pastor of COZA.

The association recognises that COZA, to the best of our knowledge, is not a member of any of the families that belong to CAN. CAN, as an association, it is equally sad that there have been recurrent allegations of rape and infidelity against some gospel ministers and other Christians as well.

While efforts must be made to get to the root of the matter through thorough investigation, the association condemns totally, any act of infidelity either by a pastor or any member of the church of God. We urge all ministers of the gospel to shun all appearances of evil especially, unregulated closeness to persons in the church. Rape by every standard is sinful and an act of wickedness.

We do not know for sure whether or not some or all of the allegations of rape and illicit relationship leveled against members of the clergy are true; we strongly appeal to all Christians to avoid blackmail against any brother or sister in the church for whatever reason. All of us must avoid making ourselves vulnerable.

The association understands the challenges of preachers who, by virtue of their position as parents of all in the church, may stand the danger of being accused. All Christians, leaders most especially, must be circumspect in the way they walk, not as unwise but as wise.

CAN recognises that this must be a very trying time for the ladies who leveled allegations against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and on the other ministers whose stories are trending presently.

The association equally recognises that this is a very hard time for the Christian church in Nigeria, especially for worshipers in COZA and all other churches whose pastors are accused.”

Update: Charges dropped against Alabama woman who was shot while pregnant

Prosecutors in Alabama on Wednesday announced that they were dropping a manslaughter charge against a woman over the death of the fetus she was carrying when she was shot in the stomach.

27-year-old Marshae Jones from Birmingham was shot in the stomach at about noon on Dec. 4, 2018, outside Dollar General on Park Road. She was five months pregnant at the time and her unborn child died as a result of the shooting.

Marshae was indicted by a Jefferson County grand jury on a manslaughter charge. She was taken into custody last Wednesday. Meanwhile, charges against her shooter, Ebony Jemison, 23, have been dismissed by a grand jury.

A grand jury in Jefferson County, convened by District Attorney Lynneice Washington, dismissed charges against the co-worker, saying she had acted in self-defense. But it indicted Ms. Jones for “initiating a fight knowing she was five months pregnant.”

According to The New York Times, Under Alabama law, a fetus is considered to have the same rights as a child who has already been born. The grand jury sought to hold someone accountable for its death and Ms. Jones was arrested last week. The charges against her quickly drew national attention.

On Wednesday, Ms. Washington, who had signed the indictment, said in a brief news conference that she had weighed the evidence and decided to dismiss the case.

“I have determined that it is not in the best interest of justice to pursue prosecution of Ms. Jones on the manslaughter charge for which she was indicted by the grand jury,” she told reporters. “No further legal action will be taken against Ms. Jones in this matter.”

The prosecution counsel, Mr. J. N. Oboh who did not object the bail granted to the defendants during the proceedings, however insisted that they should sign an undertaking to be of good behaviour. The defendants were given two months from Wednesday, to perfect their bail conditions as it was gathered that the courts would be on vacation from next week.

Ghanaian movie directors don’t know how to shoot sex scenes - Efia Odo

Efia Odo, the popular Ghanaian actress and OAP who was suicidal months ago after it was reported that she had threesome sex with Shatta Wale and his late friend Junior, has stated that Ghanaian movie directors don't know how to shoot sex scenes.

Efia Odo who passed off her claim via Twitter, wondered why most sex scenes in Ghanaian movies are too raw with no embellishment to really portray that it’s a real sex scene. She concluded by advising that sex scenes should be made sensual and sultry to tell the story very well. She tweeted;

“Some Ghana movies see scenes be soo rawwww ah. Chaley don’t they know how to direct a s*x scene to make it look sultry and sensual. Chaley chaley“

Naphawan, a grand daughter of the victim, admitted whacking Yap four or five times with a broom handle after he was behaving like he had done nothing.

"I admit I lost my temper," she said. "Society is not safe any more - for a neighbor to do this to my gran is just terrible".
