SHOCKING: Pastor’s Wife Burns Nine-year-old With an Electric Iron Over Bedwetting

Published

on

Mrs Olusola Adeleke, the wife of a pastor in the Oko-Oba area of Lagos State, has been arrested by the police for allegedly burning the skin of her home help with a hot electric iron.

The woman was arrested along with the reverend, Adebanjo, as the couple were alleged to have subjected the nine-year-old girl to series of physical abuse since she started living with them two years ago.

It was learnt that the girl’s travails came to the limelight recently when one of the Adelekes’ two dogs bit her in the chest while she was feeding them.

It was said that the couple did not take her to hospital for treatment which prompted a mandated reporter to inform a child rights advocate, Mrs Toyin Taiwo-Ojo, about the case.

Taiwo-Ojo, a lawyer, told our correspondent that apart from the dog bites and mark of electric iron, there were scars of lashes all over the girl’s body.

She explained that she approached the reverend, who claimed his wife was playing with the victim when the hot electric iron burned her skin.

She said, “I asked him if the electric iron is a toy, but he was speechless. The woman didn’t tell us what the girl did that warranted such inhumane treatment, but the girl said she was punished for bedwetting.

“She said she is from Ajara (in Badagry). According to the girl, the couple lured her to their house two years ago through her mother’s friend. They told the mother that an elderly couple without a child needed somebody to keep their company and they promised to send her to school. That was why her mother released her to the couple

“We have been trying to reunite her with her family. She doesn’t know her surname; she only knows that her father was an Alhaji before he passed on. The suspects are pastors. They used horsewhips to beat the little girl who is about nine years old. There were scars all over her body from several previous beatings.”

Our correspondent learnt that the state’s Ministry of Youth and Social Development were involved in the matter and the suspects were arrested on Thursday and transferred to the gender unit of the state police command headquarters in Ikeja.

The lawyer said the victim while narrating her experience stated that the couple gave her tough chores to do, including tendering to Adeleke’s aged mother.

She said, “The malnourished child said she had been staying with the couple for the past two years without going to school. Her daily chores include changing the diaper and cleaning of a 90-year-old grandmother, who also resides in the place. She also feeds the two Alsatian dogs in the house and takes care of their kennel. A scar by her breast was a dog bite she sustained four days earlier, but the reverend and his wife did not deem it fit to take her to a hospital for anti-rabies and anti-tetanus injections.”

The child rights activist stated further that the girl was taken to a hospital for treatment where a preliminary report revealed that she had been sexually abused.

“A medical test has been carried out on her, and the result will be out on Monday. The girl has not revealed who did the dastardly act to her because of the trauma she had gone through. We are still waiting for the outcome of the police investigation to know the perpetrator,” she added.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Bala Elkana, confirmed the arrest of the couple.

He said, “Investigation on the case is ongoing, and the suspects will be charged to court after the conclusion of the investigation.”

June 15, 2020, the day I can never forget-Emma Ike Agu

Published

on

As a Nigerian-American International award-winning songster, musicologist, and music producer, I choose to live a tranquil life. I am very private and also lead and keep a low-profile lifestyle. It is my choice, for I believe nothing in this universe is worth all the commotion and noise we witness regularly.
Life itself is a bitch; there are so many things that happen around us that overwhelm us. Things nobody can explain.
Everywhere you look, all you see is mayhem. Inside the United States, every minute you turn on your television to watch the news, all we see and hear is mass shootings. When one gets tired of the eternal trouble inside America and wants to go back to Nigeria, folks will tell you to remain where you are. You could become a potential target to Armed Robbers, kidnappers, or even unknown shooters.
On June 15, 2020, something happened to me that transformed my life. One of the significant lessons I learned that day is that one has to be careful with fragile individuals. Some people act instantly on their impulses and do things that will make your life a living hell. Also, another takeaway that will follow me all the days of my life is that I have to choose my friends wisely. A lot of folks you call your friends are not deserving. There are vampires.
June 15, 2020, was a day I saw myself in danger. I came this close to losing my life over nothing. As crazy as some streets in New York City are, I have never had any issues with anyone. I followed the law and obeyed all rules and regulations. June 15, 2020, almost erased my excellent records. Although I survived that day with minor bruises and cops swarming around me to help, the incident still lingers on my mind. It was a very terrible day that you don’t wish for anyone.

To all my fans, get ready for my new songs, which will soon hit the music scene. As I always do, you are the judge when the song hits you.

Good Bye, Gavin Douyon.

Today, family and friends will gather to bid farewell to a kid star, Gavin Douyon. The little boy, whose infectious smile brightened the day, died inside a 30 feet deep Retention pond in Florida, where his New York-based School teacher mother took him and his senior brother to spend the memorial day weekend. The devastated family, friends, and well-wishers will miss Gavin, as he’s fondly called, forever.

The young kid would not have met his untimely death if those paid with the taxpayer’s money did their job. According to a very reliable source, the same pond where Gavin died had taken three other innocent lives. How many deaths will it take the authorities to take necessary action to avert future tragedies such as this?
No matter how careful we try to control our kids, there are moments little kids want to play with their peers. Unfortunately, Gavin, a little kid who could have celebrated his 5th birthday in few months, strayed and downed within minutes; it was discovered he was missing.
Everyone who knew this young star is so heartbroken, including this writer. Unfortunately, Gavin left way too soon. We all shall miss you.

My Whatsapp line that ends in ‘6000’ is hacked!-Emma IK AGU

In the last six months, I have been a target of hundreds of online scam bags. Today, a particular individual who said he is the Secretary of the Arewa Journalists group hacked my Wattsapp. He told me at a specific time; they will be holding a meeting. He sent me a code, and since I was multi-tasking, I did so little to do a verification. I began getting calls from family, friends, and fans all over the world. I was assured they knew my account was hacked,
I was added to this group by Abraham Awodi, a well-respected Nigerian Journalist based in Abuja. Abraham Awodi was at one time the correspondence of my now rested Nigerian FM, Abuja bureau. Within minutes my account got hijacked; I called Abraham Awodi only to get his voice mail. I also got in touch with few people in Abuja to block this particular line from sending messages to their groups. One is fortunate to have Ministers, Governors, Music, and movie stars in my contact. Over the years, folks know who I am and know fully well; I spent my time exposing internet criminals.
The attempt by these folks to tarnish my good name, which I spent my life to build, will never succeed. I happen to be a man of high principle who never backs down. Whoever planned this has already murdered his (their) sleep.

Inside America

A strange Inauguration eve: why this night’s so different-AGU writes.

Earlier in the day, I saw the incoming President, Joe Biden, wept openly. I equally saw a woman, a staunch member of Qanon, who said President Biden would be arrested and won’t be sworn in as the President.

Many of us quarreled, fought, and became enemies and passionately supported our candidates. In the next 12 hours or less, a new President will be sworn in. Let's bury the hatchets and be friends again. In politics, they say, there's no permanent friendship but permanent interest.

Washington DC is like a City under a military siege, right at this hour. I was an eye witness on the eve of then-President-elect Obama’s swearing-in ceremony. I got selected to headline the African Inaugural Ball; the day was the 19th of January 2009. I performed to honor the incoming President around 1.a.m Eastern time.

After my performance, the entire crew rode freely amid thousands of folks to Capital Hill, where the swearing-in ceremony would occur. We also visited Baily’s house, where the Obamas stayed on the eve of his swearing-in ceremony. Our next port of call was the White house. I can never forget when a White Secret Service agent told me bluntly not to pass through his ‘yard.’ That night, around 3.a.m, President Bush and his family had their last night in the White House.
Thousands of people camped out at the national mall and folks who kept coming from different directions.

Corona Virus memorial-Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

It was around 4.a.m that I drove back to New York City, leaving my crew behind in Washington D.C. I don’t have a word to describe what I saw as I saw thousands of people smiling, singing, and dancing in the streets. People partied across the United States all night long. Candidate Obama had mesmerized and dazzled a distressed nation with messages of hope. You can see that millions of people hoped that Obama would succeed after the economy took a turn for the worse.

Millions of people had lost their jobs. Companies went out of business.
A vast majority of Americans saw the President-Elect, Barrack Obama, who campaigned with a catchy phrase that says ‘Hope you can believe in,’ put their hopes on him. The man went to work as soon as he got sworn in; there was no drama, no scandal. Obama and Biden worked for the American people, who gave them a mandate. Obama, just like every other mortal out there, is not a perfect man; some of his policies, as controversial as they were, he dug the nation out of a hole. His detractors agreed.
Tonight as the United States people mourn the deaths of over four hundred thousand lives lost due to the coronavirus, Washington D.C is a no-go area. With over twenty thousand members of the national guard in military Kakis, their hands on the long guns, this night is the complete opposite of 2009 or even 2017 when the current President took over. The national guards are dealing with the harsh cold weather too. I don’t know how they do it, but this is hard. Imagine staying outside under this cold condition? Horrible. You can see hundreds of them sleeping on the bare floor. How do they even eat or shower under this condition? I salute these men and women who put their lives in harm’s way for us.

The national Guards, all over the City

I remain grateful that I witnessed history in 2009, by every standard, Kamala Harris’s rise from slum to become the Vice president lect is historic. She was born and raised like an ordinary child out there. She rose from nothing to become somebody. Kamala also went to a regular school like every other poor kid in our neighborhood. The man who selected her ( President- Elect Joe Biden) is also an ordinary American whose parents lived from paycheck to paycheck. Many of us quarreled, fought, and became enemies and passionately supported our candidates. In the next 12 hours or less, a new President will be sworn in. Let’s bury the hatchets and be friends again. In politics, they say, there’s no permanent friendship but permanent interest.

It is an unusual night, surreal, frightful, and unprecedented in so many ways. Historians will never refer to this transition as a peaceful transfer of power. It reminds me of a military take over in Banana Republics. This night in Washington, D.C, looks nothing like an inauguration eve; it is a sad night. Earlier in the day, I saw the incoming President, Joe Biden, wept openly. I equally saw a woman, a staunch member of Qanon, who said President Biden would be arrested and won’t be sworn in as the President. Guys, these are challenging times; please pray for the United States, the land of the impossibilities.
