hief judge sets 27 awaiting trial inmates free in Bauchi

Published

on

No less than twenty-seven awaiting trial suspects regained freedom from the Bauchi Custodial Centre and other Correctional service centres across the state, courtesy of the state chief judge, Justice Rabi Talatu Umar.

Justice Rabi Umar was the head of the State Administration of Justice Committee constituted by the Kauran Bauchi led administration to undertake a routine quarterly visit to Correctional Service centres.

The committee was to review cases of awaiting trial inmates who have spent three or more years in prison without a trial, in a bid to decongest such centres.

The committee which comprised of representatives of the State Custodial Centre, Directorate of State Services and the Nigerian Bar Association, had during its first-quarter sitting, released 29 awaiting trial inmates across the correctional centres of the state.

Releasing twenty-one out of the 27 awaiting trial inmates at the Bauchi custodial centre, the chief judge urged them to be of good conduct and exemplary behaviour in society, having regained their freedom.

She warned that she would not be lenient with anyone among the released who commits any crime and returns to the centres,

Justice Rabi Umar also asked the freed to seek forgiveness their respective family members for committing atrocities and urged younger ones among them to seek knowledge from schools or any other learning centre with a view to becoming useful members of the society.

“See the regaining of your freedom as an act of God, not because of any influence or your position in the society before, you should also not brag-up for the freedom you regain, as doing so will be disobedience or ungrateful to God”.

The Chief Judge said that the exercise is continuous as the law has given her the power to look into where people are unnecessarily remanded without trial.

One of the freed, Inuwa Hamza Wanzam, on behalf of others, thanked God and the committee for the gesture and said that their release will be an end to the correctional service walls.

In Katagum emirate where there are two centres, Zaki and Azare, the committee took-off time to visit the Katagum palace where the emir, Umar Farouk Umar assured of his council’s support and cooperation to enable the commit succeed in its assigned responsibility.

The Emir described the judiciary as the last hope of the common man, where he or she still has the confidence but expressed dissatisfaction on some unnecessary detention in collaboration with some judges, saying people should be given their rights.

He warned those judges who unnecessarily detain citizens that the prayers of such detainees are easily accepted by God, saying ‘People are being detained unnecessarily on common issues”.

Other six awaiting trial inmates released include four in Azare and one each in Misau and Jama’are correctional centres, thus bringing the number of inmates who regained their freedom to twenty-seven (27).

Shock as Pastor feeds members with millipedes, beer as holy communion

Published

on

The senior Pastor of Rabboni Centre Ministries in South Africa, Lesego Daniel, has shocked the world after he fed his church members with millipede and beer as holy communion.

According to him, God has given man everything on earth as food and any food man sanctifies or prays on, can equally be the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ and could be taken as the Last Supper.

The cleric provided his congregation with millipede and bottles of beer and other alcoholic drinks which they ate and drank in ‘Communion’.

The church uploaded pictures of the “mass feeding” on its Facebook page and official statement was released.

The church’s statement reads, “Truly this scripture was fulfilled in Rabboni centre ministries today as our father has been teaching us that anything can be declared to be the body and the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, we don’t discriminate because God gave to us everything that lives and moves about the earth to be food, just as He has given us green plants for food.

“He said to Noah in Genesis 9 that I now give you everything for food to eat and today we are beating the shadows to reveal those who dwell in the shadow of the almighty as we are revealing the ones who belong to the light.

“So sons of glory cannot be judged by what they eat or drink or with regard to religious festivals because these things were a shadow of what was to come, so the reality has come and this reality is found in the body of Christ.

“Creation continues to be joyful in Rabboni centre ministries because it has been subjected to frustration, not by its own choice but by the will of Him who subjected it, in hope that it will be liberated when the sons of glory are revealed.

“Creation wait no more, whatever we touch is blessed, whether it’s chicken, millipede, boerewors, waffles, etc., we sanctify and consecrate it by the word of God and prayer and we declare it to be the body and the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“This is how we call our Lord Jesus Christ affectionately into remembrance and many sons and daughters partook from his body with joy as they have been enlightened by the word of truth.”
