Pastor Wahome charges Sh 1,500 (2,848.46 NGN) from anyone who wants to know about this mystery. This is not the first time the pastor will be accused of fooling his church members and the public, as he also did something similar in 2012. In 2012, the pastor wore a particular garment and said whoever touched it will be healed of any sickness just like the woman with the issue of blood, in Mark 5:21-34 who got healed after touching the garment of Jesus. He also charged Sh 1,200( 2,278.77 NGN) for this. Shockingly a lot of people flooded his church to receive their supposed healing and are still running there to see if their names are in the book of life

Africa Fashion Week London Launches AFWN 2014

With preparations already in full swing for the 4th edition of Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL) on the 7th-9th August, the organizers of Africa Fashion Week London have announced that they will also be hosting the first Africa Fashion Week Nigeria on the 17th & 18th of May.

Established in 2011, AFWL was borne out of the urgent need to support young and emerging African inspired designers in the UK and globally providing them with a professional and affordable showcasing platform that enables them to create awareness, visibility and exposure for themselves, a platform that celebrates their own kind of fashion sense and themes.

The event is fast becoming the biggest African inspired fashion event in the UK, combining runway and fashion exhibition shows in three days of perfectly paced illuminating expos. AFWL as a platform has hosted the creations of over 200 African and African inspired designers from across the African continent and the Diaspora.

From the success of the Africa Fashion Week London and the influx of creativity from Nigerian designers presented during the past editions of AFWL, we decided to host the Africa Fashion Week in Nigeria (AFWN) as there are still talented young and emerging designers who have not been privileged with the opportunity to showcase on an international platform.

Justin Bieber on US Homeland Security watch list, to be searched every time he enters the US

Culled from TMZ.

Canadian singer Justin Bieber's days of breezing in and out of the U.S. are over after he was added on US Homeland Security watch list for his two ongoing criminal cases. This means he will searched indefinitely by U.S Customs every time he enters the states, TMZ reports.
When Justin flew into a New Jersey airport from Canada last Friday ... U.S. Customs searched his plane and then grilled him for hours, before letting him leave. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Custom's flagged Bieber because he's on a Homeland Security watch list
We're told Bieber is subject to the exact same treatment every time he leaves and then re-enters the U.S. -- a thorough search and then exhaustive questioning. 
It's very hard to get off the watch list once you're on it. You can appeal to Homeland Security but the agency has broad discretion.  What's more ... if Bieber is found guilty or pleads no contest to any criminal charge, it will be extremely difficult for him to go under the radar again.

As for whether that will cramp his style ... Bieber sources say he just doesn't care. As one person put it, "He's gonna do what he wants to do."

Anti-gay law: Gay Nigerians flood Netherlands embassy seeking asylum

Can you imagine, some Nigerians like to take advantage sha! Lol. The Embassy of the Netherlands in Nigeria has confirmed that it has received some applications for asylum by some Nigerians who fear persecution following the recent signing into law the anti-gay bill by President Jonathan, Thisday reports.

Netherlands is a gay-friendly country. The embassy sent an email to Thisday some days ago saying that despite receiving these applications, it was neither involved in processing any application for asylum seekers nor does it have the power to grant asylum to applicants.
"The embassy has received a small number of applications for asylum by Nigerians. It is not possible to apply for asylum at the embassy. We inform the applicants likewise but we do not register the number of applications made. At this stage, it is not possible to make predictions. That would be speculation. However, when people become increasingly aware that it is not possible to apply for asylum at the embassy, one could expect a decrease. The embassy is not involved in the asylum process, neither in the application nor in the determination of the authenticity of claims.”

SSS arrests Dokubo-Asari Dokubo over inciting comments

President of the Niger Delta Volunteer Force, Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, has been arrested by the men of the Department of State Security, DSS for making inciting comments on the 2015 election.

The former Niger Delta militant was arrested this morning, less than 24 hours after Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, called on security agents to arrest and caution him for repeatedly making inciting comments. He is currently being interrogated by SSS operatives.

Replying to comments made by former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday Feb 4th Asari Dokubo said that he would make Nigeria ungovernable unless Pres. Jonathan wins a second term ticket in the 2015 presidential election. He also asked Northern politicians to stay away 
"If they say the blood of the dogs and the baboon will be soaked in water on the street, in blood on the street, in salt water on the street, we will help them soak them in blood”.
Security operatives believe such a comment is capable of causing chaos in Nigeria.
