A clergyman in Delta State, Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin, of the Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry, on Friday, incurred the wrath of many Nigerians after a video of him asking a woman to move around the auditorium and pick a man as a husband during service emerged online.

In the about 9.42-minute-long clip, Fufeyin was seen ordering the woman to come towards where he stood at the front before asking after her husband.

When the woman responded that she was yet to marry, the pastor giggled before asking her when she wished to marry.

Immediately the woman answered that she would wish to be married on that very day, Fufeyin asked her to quickly go round the auditorium to pick a husband.

The light-complexioned lady sporting a blue native attire, moved round different sections of the packed auditorium while the pastor followed closely behind.

After insisting that she had not found a man of her choice to take as a husband, the prophet then asked men interested in taking her as wife to file out.

About eight men came out but the woman told the clergyman that she was not interested in any of them, prompting him to say that her eyes had been covered by supernatural forces.

He said, “The reason why you are just moving around without finding a man is that they put a mask to cover your face.

“In the realm of the spirit, you are just moving aimlessly. Anybody that comes your way just chop (sic) and go. No be so?

“They plaster your face not to find a husband until you grow old.”

***The clergyman thereafter asked ladies interested in marrying the eight men, who had come out for the first woman to line up behind them.

While one or two ladies queued up behind some of the men, a particular one among them had 11 women lining up behind him.

Fufeyin thereafter said he gave the men till the end of the month to screen their “wives” and pick the one person they want to marry.

He said, “Pastors, write down the husbands’ names. We cannot allow women to remain like this forever. I want to marry off these people. I give you people from now till month end to screen your wives. Nobody should go and meet them at night; if you go I’ll catch you.

“I will sponsor the marriages in this church on the same day. I give you time to check yourself.”

He then turned to the first lady and told her to go and look for her husband before laying hands on her.

The woman fell to the ground immediately his hands came upon her.

Reacting to the entire episode, readers on PUNCH’s online platform,, rained hard knocks on the prophet.

A commenter, Omo9ja, said, “What these fake pastors will cause in this country, they will not be able to solve it. Stealing and lying in the name of God. They are just mocking Christianity. There is God o.”

Another commenter identified only as Nigeriamovingforward, said, “Religious enslavement has taken over Nigeria. Business/church centres.”

Admonisher, another reader, wrote, “This is so against the Biblical teachings on marriage. The church has become a business, reality shows and den of corrupt and discredited politicians.”

Emmanco, a separate reader, wrote, “I can’t believe what I just watched. How can these guys continue to take advantage of the weak and poor souls and get away with it? I am not judging but this is an abuse of power and immoral, to say the least. I think it’s high time the government set up an agency to monitor this type of abuse and fraudulent religious leaders.”

Dycc Dunukofia emmanco, wrote, “This is a show of shame… what these prophets of doom are doing now is terrible. Some pastors will tell their members to eat grasses like goat to get money… One church camera even captured holy ghost flying in the church….I wrote it in small letter oooo……ALL NA WORK.”

A commenter, Acheme David Ijegwa, said, “How lost Christians have become, unable to discern where the Spirit of God resides. Sheep that don’t know the voice of the master easily follows wolves.”

Daniel Dalton Comrade Easy wrote, “That lady is in love with the pastor – that’s why she couldn’t choose….Not to worry, he will soon divorce his wife and be her husband, it’s permitted in new generation churches.” (

APC’s Committee On Restructuring Dead On Arrival, Says Fayose |RN


Gov. Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has called on Nigerians to reject the All Progressives Congress’s committee on restructuring, describing it as dead on arrival and a ruse.

“It is a blatant attempt to draw the wool over the eyes of Nigerians”, he added.

In a statement yesterday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, Fayose, who is also the chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, said the APC committee on restructuring is unnecessary since the jury is that Nigerians in their large numbers, cutting across party, regional, ethnic, social, and religious backgrounds have overwhelmingly voted for immediate restructuring of the polity.

“This APC distraction is meant to deceive Nigerians one more time. Nigerians must unequivocally reject it. They have deceived us enough and we must not allow them to deceive us again.

“APC and its government at the centre have failed on all fronts and have not delivered on their promises to the electorate. They have lived in denial and have spent the last two years either blaming everyone else but themselves for their cluelessness or repudiating their election promises.

“Whereas they promised to restructure in their party manifesto, they have come out openly to deny this obvious fact. So, who does not know that their so-called committee is an ingenious attempt to deceive and sweep the raging storm over restructuring under the carpet?

“This is a government that specialises in sweeping serious national issues under the carpet. The report of the presidential investigative committee on the alleged corrupt activities of two principal officers of the Buhari administration has been swept under the carpet. My protest letter to the acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on this issue has not received the speedy attention it deserves”, he said. (The Sun)

Nnamdi Kanu Storms Rivers Insists On Referendum As Condition For 2019 Poll


From: TONY JOHN, Port Harcourt

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has restated the demand for a referendum for the South Eastern to become an independent nation, declaring that the region would not be Islamised.

Kanu reiterated his earlier position that election would not take place in Igboland, especially the scheduled November 18, governorship poll in Anambra State to press the demand for Biafra.

He made the declarations yesterday, as he addressed thousands of pro-Biafra enthusiasts, who gave him a rousing welcome in Oyigbo, near Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The venue was St. Peters Catholic Church in Oyigbo Local Government Area.

The IPOB boss said that the Anambra State election would serve as the first experiment in the resolve of IPOB supporters to make a powerful statement that they were no longer interested in one Nigeria.

A huge crowd from across Port Harcourt and some neighbouring states welcomed Kanu, who arrived the venue quietly.

The IPOB leader said that he wanted Biafra to be actualized “today”, but informed the crowd that Biafra would be achieved through a process and that the first step in that process would be the boycott of the Anambra election and other elections in Biafra land.

“So, the election will not hold in Anambra State and other states in Biafra. That is what the people have agreed on, and there is no going back,” he declared.

He maintained his position to sustain the Biafra struggle, stressing that the struggle was to save the destiny of future generations.

According to him, Biafra people had been marginalised by the Nigerian government, and there was the need to redeem the Igbo from such injustice and inequality.

Kanu led the agitators in a prayer session for the liberation of ‘Biafraland’, vowing that he would not be alive to see any part of Igboland Islamized by the government.

Meanwhile,  the Rivers State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Nnamdi Omoni,  a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP),  confirmed the visit of the leader of the IPOB to the state.

He told Saturday Sun yesterday, that the command got intelligence report and put adequate security in place to forestall violence.

“We are aware of his (Kanu) visit to Rivers State.  We got intelligence report of his visit and we put adequate security in place, to ensure that the people did not take laws into their hands”. (The Sun)

Just In: Biafran USA Delegate Meets White House Officials, Secure Certificates, Support For Referendum (Video)

By Ike A. Offor

The IPOB leaders and friends in the United States in the company of their two attorneys met with White House Officials today, 21st July 2017 and made a case for referendum towards the third quarter of this year.

The Biafran delegate was issued with a certificate and given a date for a referendum, according to their report from the group’s delegate.

The meeting was not much publicised to avoid being infiltrated by the agents who IPOB delegates regard as enemies from the Nigerian government or APC distractors in the United States.

The actual meeting was not filmed, as that is wholly against the rules of the White House security protocols and was not covered widely by the press

The issues raised in the meeting were the referendum and the scheduled date for the referendum. Their government support for Biafra and their struggle for independence.

According to one of the delegates, Miss Candy Stallworth, who is an American but one of the IPOB leaders, the date for the Biafran referendum is scheduled for 12th of September 2017.

Though, this date seemed very close and apparently not much preparation has been made for the actual referendum, one wonders how feasible this date is.

In a phone call by The Republican News with one of the delegates, who would not want to be mentioned, he said that the United States actually supports Biafra and the need for a referendum. ‘They are really in affirmative and in good thought about Biafra’, he said.

He also said: ‘President Donald Trump has his options very wide open about Biafra and he has been following the issue with keen interest’. Also,  the time is coming when the entire United States government will make a public statement about Biafra and he is sure it is going to be shocking to the enemies’.

He also said that President Trump and America are not against Biafra and asked Biafrans to keep to keep their hope alive and strong. The delegate said that the time is coming when the whole government will turn around and give total support for Biafra, and that includes the government of other countries.

The vague thing here is whether the September 12th date for the referendum is for an actual referendum or scheduled date for the United States to make a public statement about Biafra referendum.

Obviously, if these are true and real, the Nigerian government may have picked up some bits of information on the reality and the authenticity of the probable upcoming announcement and the date for a referendum. So, why is the APC-led government not doing anything to address the issue or is the government aware that Biafra will finally come and has given up hope about it. Perhaps, the government do not regard it as serious the issue about Biafra.

Biafran Delegate To Meet President Donald Trump Tomorrow |The Republican News

By Ike A. Offor
The Biafran delegate in the company of their two attorneys will meet President Donald Trump and other White House officials tomorrow, 21st July 2017.
The details of the meeting and topic covered will be widely serialised by THE REPUBLICAN NEWS during and after the meeting.
This is the very first time Biafrans are being invited by the government or President of any country to hear their grievances with regard to their push for an independent state of Biafra.
This meeting could be a big turning point for the Biafran secessionist group.
Whatever transpires in this meeting could be a game changer for the entire struggle.
It could be recalled that the United States has stated its support for one United Nigeria, a message passed on by its ambassador to Nigeria.
But, it could also be recalled that the United States was indeed against the formation of the state of Israel but later agreed to it.
Could the same fate befall Biafra? The preamble to that question could be addressed in this first meeting with Biafrans in the White House tomorrow.
For the fact that this meeting is scheduled and the White House agreed to grant such audience to Biafrans is a giant step for Biafra.
