Secessionists Are Wasting Their Time — Olumba Olumba Obu

Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (BCS), a Christian religious organisation, has said that some separatists agitating for secession were wasting their time, assuring that “Nigeria will remain one united nation.”

BCS, founded by Olumba Olumba Obu in Calabar in 1956, said this when its
Bishop of Lagos, Jude Uwaezuoke, visited the Lagos Office of NAN on Friday.

NAN reports that the visit was part of the annual weeklong commemoration of the organisation’s Feast of Divine Manifestation.

Uwaezuoke said the prophecies of its leader, Olumba Olumba Obu, had assured that “agitators were wasting their time because Nigeria will not break up”.

“When you are talking about this division, our leader said those agitating are wasting their time.

“He said that he has arrested all those causing confusion, kidnapping and other crimes.

“He said he has arrested all. It is not a revelation, it is an order. He made the pronouncements early this year,” the BCS Bishop said.

Theclergymann said that after a week of the order by their leader, the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, was arrested.

He said Olumba Olumba Obu also predicted an end to the Coronavirus and immediately a vaccine was found for the pandemic.

Also speaking during the visit, another BCS cleric, Paul Ikpi, said Olumba Olumba Obu did not believe in the division of Nigeria, saying God is after the unity of Nigeria.

“Division is not the solution to what we are facing because people can divide today and if there is no love, understanding and there is greed, there cannot be peace.

“If, for example, 10 of us are children of the same father and there is an oil well in my father’s land if there is greed, can that oil bring peace? One man would want to take that oil and kill everybody.

“So, the problem of Nigeria is not in agitation; Igbo can divide, Yoruba can divide, but if there is no love, forgiveness, tolerance, if there are no virtues of God instilled and embedded in them, there will still be division and confusion,” he said.

Speaking on the security situation in the country, Ikpi said a return to the truth would resolve the challenges.

“The insecurity and everything that is facing the country today is because of desperation. which is lack of the Holy Spirit,” he said.

He warned Nigerians against justifying crime. according to him, unemployment in Nigeria is not the reason for crime, insecurity, banditry and kidnapping.

“The only thing government can do is to key into God’s plan because if a good leader falls into God’s plan, God would direct that leader because even some leaders are governed by greed and carnal exposition,” he said.

Ikpi said the Holy Spirit would help leaders to become sensitive to the needs of those they are leading as contained in the teachings of Olumba Olumba Obu in his book entitled ‘The Everlasting Gospel.’

He said that the BCS leader encouraged members of the organisation to participate in politics to sanitise the system.

“Our advice for the nation and the leaders is that Nigerian leaders need to submit themselves and key into God’s divine plan, do away with greed and personal interest,” he said.

He said God’s plan would help the nation’s leadership to become servant leaders.

Speaking on rape and defilement of minors, Chinwe Wali, a female BCS cleric said that the vices were rising in Nigeria because humans had deviated from God’s love and nature.

Wali said God was concerned about rape and defilement of minors and called on Nigerians to embrace His love to kick the menace out of the society.

“It is a very serious matter as far as the father is concerned and I will say that the cause of minor defilement is that man has deviated from the laws of nature, from the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“If that man that is defiling the child has the love of God, he will not do that, knowing that Christ dwells in every one of us here because He created us and it is His Spirit that is keeping us going,” Wali said.

She added that “love closes racial, gender and cultural barriers to ensure harmony and peaceful coexistence.”

Threat: No Christian should be killed in Zamfara, CAN warns

The Christian Association of Nigeria has warned that no Christian should be killed in Zamfara State, just as it asked security agencies to protect all churches in the state and prevent terrorists from carrying out their threats against Christians.

The Association stated that the threat against Christians and churches by the terrorists is a divisive strategy against the effort of Christian and Muslim leaders towards ending criminalities in the North-West.

CAN also called on the Department of State Security and the Inspector General of Police to investigate those who are speaking for the terrorists with a view to unmasking their sponsors and beneficiaries of their criminalities.

This was contained in a statement titled, ‘No Christian Should Be Killed in Zamfara – CAN Warns,’ signed by the General Secretary, CAN, Barr Joseph Bade Daramola.

According to CAN, “The State Police Command has reportedly confirmed that a threat letter was sent to the Christians in the state asking them to stop worship and to close down churches or risk their violent attacks. We also learnt that it was the Police that even informed the state chapter of the Association about the threat.

“We know that all kidnappings and other criminalities being perpetrated in the North-Western part of the country are the handiwork of terrorists who either migrated from the North-East or those who were released under the purported rehabilitation programme of the Federal government.

“Now that a Federal High Court has labelled those criminals terrorists, we call on the Police, the military authorities and other security agencies to rise up to the challenge of the terrorists who have turned kidnappings into the biggest business venture in the geopolitical zone.

Threat: No Christian should be killed in Zamfara, CAN warns

“The way and manner by which our security agencies have been handling those criminals are totally unacceptable, reprehensible and unprecedented. Criminals are criminals irrespective of their religious, political and ethnic affiliations and they should be treated as just. We also called on the Department of State Security and the Inspector General of Police to Investigate those who are speaking for the terrorists with a view to unmasking their sponsors and beneficiaries of their criminalities.

“The leadership of the national Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in our recent visit to Sokoto and Kebbi states was alarmed, surprised and shocked by the record of those criminals who are killing and kidnapping with impunity in the area as if there was a pact between them and the security agencies. Now that both the leaderships of Christianity and Islam in the country are working together on how to stop their criminalities in the Northwest, they are now trying to introduce divisive ways by declaring war against Christians and churches in the zone especially in Zamfara State where they are gradually turning into their strongholds.

“We have no problem with Islam or with our Muslim brothers and sisters but with the handful fanatics and their financiers who have declared war against Christianity. We appeal to all peace-loving Muslims to speak against those who are painting Islam what is not. We know that there is no right-thinking Muslim leader who will be happy with the killings of Christians.

“We call on President Muhammadu Buhari to sanction any Commissioner of Police or Zonal Police Commanders and the Director of State Security Services wherever kidnappers operate in the country henceforth. This will go a long way in reducing the menace as we are approaching the Yuletide season. We have never had it this bad. We also called on the Federal government to refund all the ransom paid for the release of those who were abducted in the last five years. We reiterate our quest for the State Police in order to reduce the security burden on the Federal government-controlled Police. The Police have been overwhelmed with the menace of insecurity in the country.

“President Buhari should also direct the Police to arraign all suspected kidnappers, bandits and terrorists in their custody with a view to stopping those who are perpetrating the atrocities. Failure to do this will force the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to ask our members to embrace the principle of self-defence wherever the security agencies appeared compromised. Up till today, the perpetrators of the genocide in the Southern Kaduna are still walking freely despite the killings of hundreds of our members. We cannot be reduced to refugees in the country that belongs to us again.

“Finally, we call on all Christians and peace-loving Muslims to pray against their threats and for our security agencies to be able to stop all criminalities in the country. Enough is enough.”
