Many People Don’t Need Prayers, They Need Money’ – Yul Edochie

Published

on

Nollywood actor cum pastor, Yul Edochie, has contended that for many people, the main issue is not prayers but money.

Sharing his thoughts in a post via his Instagram page on Saturday, the actor urged his followers to go beyond prayers and provide practical aid instead.

According to Edochie, countless individuals face real-life challenges and need urgent help that extends beyond spiritual solace.

He wrote, “Many people don’t need prayers; they just need money. Give people money whenever you can. Lots of people need help.”

Meanwhile, Yul, who hosts online church services, posted on his social media timeline, emphasizing that not all deities are evil.

The actor advised his fans and followers against destroying shrines and deities.

He further commented that it was the Europeans who convinced individuals to perceive their traditions as evil, allowing them to forsake their cultural heritage and embrace European customs, which ultimately facilitated the practice of slavery.

The actor encouraged his fans to embrace their culture, noting that many deities also acknowledge God.

Yul wrote: “Stop burning shrines and deities. Not all deities are evil. Oyibo convinced us that all our ways are evil, so we could discard our ways & embrace theirs, making slavery easy.

“We need to wake up & start embracing our traditions. Many deities acknowledge God Almighty. Bringing them could bring you perpetual trouble. If you don’t understand something, leave it. If it’s not disturbing you, don’t disturb it.“

The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS) has moved the troubled transvestite, Idris Okuneye, also known as Bobrisky, from the Ikoyi Correctional Center to the Kirikiri Prison.

Bobrisky was sentenced to six months in prison for abusing the Naira.

Contrary to speculations, Bobrisky is not currently being housed at the Ikoyi Correctional Facility.

According to LEADERSHIP, the popular cross-dresser is presently held at the Kirikiri Prison and was discreetly transferred since last weekend to Kirikiri.

He stated, “It is procedural that he is moved to Kirikiri since it is an expansive prison compared to what we have here.”

He added that due to security reasons, Okuneye was quietly moved to the facility where he will serve his term.

It would be recalled that Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos sentenced the cross-dresser to six months imprisonment.

While sentencing the convict on Friday, April 12, 2024, the judge said the verdict would serve as deterrent to others who are fond of abusing and mutilating the naira.

Bobrisky is being identified as a male based on his admission at the court last week and according to reports that there is no realignment of gender or genital organs.

The source affirmed that the convict has been taken to the male cell with other inmate “and so he will be treated as a normal inmate,” he said.
