The revered General Superintendent had lamented that many Christians who don’t know how to interpret the word of God are driving people away from the church.

Kumuyi who made the remarks in a sermon shared on the Facebook wall of the Ekiti State Deeper Life Church monitored by Church Times also cautioned ushers in his church to stop imposing head covering rules on ladies, stressing that persistent coverings causes heat in the hair and it will emit odour.

His words, “Somebody is coming to our church for the first time. And she happens to be a lady not covering her head. We ask the person to cover her head before coming in. We don’t know whether the person does not even know God. We confront her out there before she even enters the church. We don’t know if she does not know how to pray or prophesy. But we impose rules on her.

“If I were the person, I would wonder what kind of church is this? If they treat me like a primary school girl, that will be my last time coming to the church.”

Citing 1Corithians 11 verse 5 of the Holy Bible, which dwells on the covering of the head for the female gender, Kumuyi explained that women should have their heads covered while praying or prophesying.
He also wondered why some sisters in the church would cover their heads for almost 20 hours a day; stating that many have made themselves unattractive by their appearance.
Kumuyi said, “There are some women who are not attractive to their husbands. Some believe since they are married they are no longer obligated to look good before their husband. There are single sisters that are not presentable. ”
Kumuyi noted that because of persistent covering there will be “heat in the hair and it will emit odour,”
Women who practice such according to him, “put themselves in bondage because they never read the word.”
He said many of the sisters who insist on the covering of hair might not even be praying in the church. They just believe since they are covering their head, they are okay.
“If I don’t tell you maybe nobody will tell you. There are some wives who dress shabbily and are no longer attractive to the man. There are some single sisters that are not presentable. Anybody who is looking for the will of God may not be attracted to them.
The Bible says every woman that pray or prophesies. The reason why you are covering is either you are praying or prophesying.”
Reacting, Ebri John, who claimed to be a member of the church, expressed dissatisfactions with the manner the church is being run.

He pointed out that the Kumuyi of ealy 90s has changed and may have been influenced on capitalism and profit making by his new wife.
John said “I once loved and cherished this ministry The G.O mentored my up bringing. But he changed completely after marriage to his second wife.”

John also pointed out the church policy trust which, to him, has not accommodated the children of the poor even when the poor are the biggest contributors to the church finances through their meager means.

“ Deeper Life high school fees is for politician children and people of questionable financial dealings. Take statistics of how many Deeper Life members’ children of average income are there in the school,” he emphasized adding that Kumuyi’s visit to Aso Rock and comments about current government are unexpected of him “His visit to Aso Rock is unbecoming of a man like Him.”

Further, John lamented that Kumuyi has not summoned courage to speak against all the atrocities going on in the country “He hasn’t gotten any courage to speak against it. Like Adeboye, Oyedepo, Suleiman etc. Compare his teachings on tapes between 1990 and 2007. It will surprise you,” he stressed.
In like manner, another, named simply as The gospel of THE TRUTH, said “Some people are plain stupid. The God you folks are talking about has already covered our heads with hair right from the birth but you like to subject women to all kind of suffering. Religion has always been about domination and oppression, women in particular Stop women oppression! This charlatan’s change of mind is solely driven by commercial gains, he wants more people to attend his church so that he can collect more money from the poor gullible members. Our biggest problem in Africa is that our people lack critical thinking and logical reasoning. That’s why we are subjected to all kind of slavery and oppression,“ The Truth said.

On his part, chukwujioke123, another Facebook enthusiast said “Liberal Theology after decades of breaking marriages and rendering of ladies abnormal and useless with strange stiff doctrines unknown to the Holy Bible? He is preparing the church for rebranding. Soon we would forget how the members used to hate the larger society and other Christians for as little as watching films and attending innocuous social gatherings hitherto forbiden at Deeper Life Church.”

NDLEA sets ablaze 1.8 tons of cocaine as Marwa promises drug cartels tough time +photos

Spread the love

Tougher time awaits drug barons and cartels operating in Nigeria if they fail to back out of their criminal trade and embrace legitimate ventures. Chairman/Chief Executive of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) gave the assurance on Tuesday 27th September 2022 while leading stakeholders to witness the crushing and setting ablaze 1.8 tons of cocaine recovered by the Agency from a warehouse in Ikorodu area of Lagos last week.
The NDLEA had in a well-coordinated and intelligence led operation that lasted two days last week stormed a hidden warehouse at 6 Olukunola street, Solebo estate Ikorodu where 1.8 tons of cocaine were recovered and five suspects including a Jamaican were arrested. Following the historical seizure, which is the largest in the Agency’s history, an order of the Federal High Court in Lagos was obtained for the public destruction of the consignment.
Speaking at the venue of the public destruction in Badagry area of Lagos Tuesday, Gen. Marwa who was represented by the Agency’s Director, Prosecution and Legal Services, Deputy Commander General of Narcotics, DCGN Sunday Joseph, said the sheer volume of the drug haul, with street value put at two hundred and seventy-eight million, two hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($278, 250,000), equivalent to one hundred and ninety-four billion, seven hundred and seventy-five million (N194, 775,000,000) naira, speaks volume about the extent of the nefarious activities of the drug underworld. He said this has made it imperative for Nigerians to continue to support NDLEA in the renewed war against illicit drugs.
He said out of the 1.8-ton seizure, 1, 828 blocks of the cocaine will be crushed and set ablaze while the remnant will be secured for purpose of prosecution of the suspects who were brought to witness the procedure and sign the certificate of destruction. According to the NDLEA boss, “the Agency is proceeding with the prosecution of those arrested in connection with this consignment. On this, the public can rest assured that NDLEA shall pursue the trial to a logical conclusion. Since January 25, 2021, when we commenced our offensive action against drug traffickers, the Agency has secured record convictions. Presently, 2, 904 drug offenders are serving various jail terms, while other cases are ongoing in court, which we are confident will end in positive results too.”
To the drug underworld, he said “the bust of the syndicate responsible for the cocaine warehoused in Ikorodu is a message to drug cartels that their investments in the illicit drug trade will go up in flames as you are about to witness while they also risk losing their freedom because the present NDLEA is committed to arresting, prosecuting and ensuring the conviction of those involved in illicit drugs. That is not all, we now also go after their assets acquired with the proceeds of the criminal trade.”
Marwa said the fact that the Ikorodu operation was conducted clinically without any skirmish or bloodshed is further testimony to the evolution of the NDLEA and its new capabilities, and a pointer to the fact that the game has changed in the war against illicit drugs.
He expressed appreciation to the Agency’s international partners, especially the American Drug Enforcement Administration (US-DEA) that supported the cocaine syndicate bust and the Nigerian military that provided additional firepower during the operation, as well as other law enforcement agencies that have been supporting efforts to rid Nigeria of illicit drugs.
While soliciting for more support for the Agency’s work, Marwa said “the safety of our society is the responsibility of every one of us and every citizen shall be fulfilling his or her civic duty by assisting the Agency to clean up our communities and cities by joining our War Against Drug Abuse (WADA)”, adding that “together, we can make this country secure.”
