Again, Ondo Amotekun ‘Deports’ 137 Northerners From State
The Ondo State Security Network Agency, codenamed Amotekun has again evicted 137 northerners from the state forest reserve.
Those evicted were occupying the Elegbeka forest reserve along Ifon-Owo Road
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu had in February ordered herdsmen to vacate the state’s forest reserves within seven days.
Apart from ejecting the herdsmen, the governor also banned underage grazing, night grazing, and movement of cattle within the cities and highways.
Speaking with journalists in Akure, the state commander of Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye described herdsmen’s continued occupation of the forest reserves as a security threat to the state.
Adeleye said all the illegal forest occupants would be escorted out of the state to wherever they came from.
He said, “We got an Intelligence report that very many people bombarded (forests at) Elegbeka–Ifon area in the state.
“We moved in and questioned the majority of them and they said they were from the northern part of the country. We asked for their mission, they were not able to give us a clear-cut (explanation) of what they were here for.
“We brought some of them (to Akure) and their sponsors here to the headquarters (of Amotekun) for proper investigation. We profiled them and found out that they were conniving with some persons in Ose to be given space for settlement in the government’s forest reserve which makes them illegal occupants in the forest reserve.”
The chairman said, “We are sending them back to where they claimed they came from.”
This comes a few days after the government evacuated 42 suspected invaders, who were arrested by Amotekun at Okitipupa, the headquarters of Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state.
The suspected invaders who hailed from Kano and Jigawa states claimed that they were invited to the state by an agent who will engage them as security guards to monitor and guide pipelines in the state.

BREAKING: Jubilation In Enugu As Father Mbaka Reappears
There was Jubilation in Enugu State on Wednesday after the reappearance of the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Rev Father Ejike Mbaka.
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide (OYC) had in a statement raised an alarm saying the whereabouts of the priest were unknown.
The cleric’s supporters and members of his Adoration Ministry in Enugu also took to the streets on Wednesday to protest against his alleged disappearance.
Mbaka had asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign or be impeached last week.
However, he was attacked by the Presidency, which alleged that the cleric was angry because he sought to secure contracts from the Buhari-led government and was denied.
The cleric was on Wednesday afternoon seen in an open roof car, waving to protesters who surrounded him alongside operatives of the Nigeria Police Force.
His supporters were seen shouting ‘Father Mbaka, Oh! you are home!.”
The reverend father later came out of the vehicle to rejoice with his supporters.

Mbaka Missing, Nigerian Government Has 48 Hours To Produce Him—Ohanaeze Youth Congress
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, on Wednesday raised the alarm over the whereabouts of Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry.
The Catholic cleric recently criticised President Muhammadu Buhari and called for his impeachment over the growing insecurity in the country.
However, the President-General of Ohanaeze Youth Council has raised the alarm that the priest is missing.
The President-General of OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, in a statement seen by Daily Post on Wednesday said Mbaka was last seen on Tuesday and that efforts to locate him had failed.
“We have it on good authority that his aides have neither seen nor heard from him since Tuesday.
“Calls put to his mobile line have also remained unanswered; this has now prompted us to issue this alarm as we would not take it lightly should anything untoward happens to him.
“We are giving the Federal Government 48 hours to produce the priest, else they should be ready to face Igbo youths. They were dining and wining with him all along and now that he told the truth, they are no longer comfortable with him.
“Let nothing happen to Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka. It will not be in anybody’s interest,” the group said.

By Einstein Chukwu.
The Executive Secretary, Ebonyi State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Pastor Ken. Nwabueze, on Wednesday, urged Christians to intensify their prayers for the peace and progress of the country.
Pastor Nwabueze made this call in a sermon while conducting mid-week prayer organized by the Secretary to the State Government and Coordinating Commissioner as part of the 7-Day prayer and fasting programme against the killings across Ebonyi State and the country declared by Ebonyi State Government.
In a homily, the Clergyman who dwelt on the message: “Fear Not", encouraged Christians not to be dismayed over the security challenges rocking Nigeria, stressing that God has the ability to deliver all of us from trouble no matter how impossible it may seem.
“God knows you by name. He knows your circumstance and everything about you. He has the answer and the ability to deliver you from every danger that could ever come or imagine.
He called on the Christians to continue to pray for God’s intervention and that things would get better for the country in all ramifications”, he charged.

*LOYALTY to LEADERSHIP INSIGHT:*
You can't be disloyal to God INSTITUTED leadership and loyal to the Holy Spirit••• No! No!! No!!! You can't.
*Do you still have boldness to stand before your leaders; expectialy those you have considered PAST OR PREVIOUS LEADERS?*
1 Sam 24:1-22, let's read verse 6 because of time.
David said to his men, The Lord forbid that I should do this to my master, the Lord's anointed, to put my hand out against him, when he is the anointed of the Lord.
Friends we are going to study the life of King Saul, the Senior pastor or G/O and David the Junior Pastor or Assistant Pastor. Let's learn few things from the passage above.
(1)King Saul: Saul loved David, how? It was Saul that gave David the opportunity to fight Goliath. Saul gave David the platform to showcase his gift. Saul gave him the opportunity to use his his talent. No one would have heard anything about David.
*David got into trouble the day women song _Saul killed 1,000 and David killed 10,000_.*
Junior pastors, be careful when the members of the church says you're more anointed than your Leader, some of us will be nobodies if not for the Leaders that God used for us. I have said this before and I am saying it again, 80% of problems between the G/O and the Junior pastors are caused by the church members and or spouse.
Reject the praises of the members against your Leaders. Junior pastors, don't use the microphone and the altar of your Leader against him. Don't let him regret that he gave you opportunity to minister to the church members.
(2)David: Who is this David? David had the opportunity to killed Saul his enemy, his men said unto him today God has deliver your enemy into your hands. David went down and cut the robe of Saul's garment.
No wonder God said he is "a man after my heat".
What kind of heart has David? When they discuss and gossip about your leader in your presence, what happens to your heart?
Do you contribute when they spoil and condemns your leader?
David said in PS 1:1-3, *_Blessed is the man that sitted not in the sit of the scornful,.._* It's time to cut off anyone speaking and spoiling your leader. Cut them off!
(3)Anointing: David did not fight Saul because of the Anointing, David said Saul is the Anointed of the the Lord.
PS 105-15 says *_Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm_*.
Many of us are touching the anointed by our mouth. Even when God has rejected Saul, David still respected him. Why are you disrespecting your leader? David called Saul "my father", even at the point of death.
Because of what happened between you and your leader, you have changed the name you used to call him. He is no longer your father... Hmmmm.
We shall come up with more•••√√√

Thanksgiving Mass and Grand Reception of Rev. Fr. Sampson C. Nwokpoku at St. Raphael Parish Catholic Church Okoffia Holds Amidst Joy.
By Einstein Chukwu
People give thanks to God for different reasons such as for the blessings they received, for excelling in a particular field, for good health, for saving them from dangers and many others.
To Rev. Fr. Sampson, the purpose of the celebration was to thank God for the gift of priesthood and religious life that he has received from God.
The confreres and the lay faithful including Ebonyi State Executive Council Members led by a representative of Deputy Governor, the Deputy Chief of Staff, Government House, Dr. Okechukwu Nwakpu, Secretary to the State Government and Coordinating Commissioner, Dr. Kenneth Ugbala Igwe, witnessed the ceremony.
Felicitating with the celebrant and the Church, Dr. Nwakpu commended the new priest for availing himself the opportunity to be used by God.
Deputy Chief of Staff, lamented that many are called to be faithful disciples but only few accept wholeheartedly the invitation and conditions for God’s call, affirming that his selection as a priest is God’s choice.
He called on the people to rather give him support and prayers instead of finding fault in him.
He said “On behalf of the Deputy Governor, I want to thank you for accepting the call to serve in God’s Vineyard. It is not an easy decision because so many persons are called but few are chosen. I am expecting your ministry to bring so many persons who have been carried away by the vicissitudes of life to join the priesthood. Today, history has repeated itself in the land of Okoffia, we assure you of our prayers and support in your priestly ministry”.
In a homily, Very Rev. Fr. Ikenna Nnaji, dwelt on the message: “Abiding in Christ", encouraged the newly ordained priest, Fr Sampson, to abide in Jesus. He noted that for one to be successful in the ministry one needed to be deeply rooted in Christ Jesus, avoid earthly consumerism and humanism, contrary to which means denying of Christ.
The Clergyman further urged the new priest and the church to hold unto Christ and deepen their faith in the Lord by laying outside every heavy weight and its entanglement and be grafted in God.
The grand reception was organised by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Ugbala Kenneth Igwe in conjunction with the Honourable Commissioner for Infrastructure, Development and Concession, Engr. Nweze Fidelis Kings, in honour of the celebrant.
High point of the event was administration of mass, sacrament and Eucharist by Rev. Fr. Sampson Chukwuma Nwokpoku, the newly ordained priest.
The celebration re-ignited a unifying spirit among the people in the community.
This was shown in their participation in the programme. Many of them and all visitors took turns to present gifts to the newly ordained priest. Others took the opportunity to have pictures with him.
They were all refreshed before they departed to their homes.

Pentágono rastrea cohete chino fuera de control que se alista para volver a entrar a la atmósfera de la Tierra - CNN
El Pentágono ha dicho que está rastreando un gran cohete chino que está fuera de control y listo para volver a entrar en la atmósfera de la Tierra.
¿Por qué el Pentágono sigue la trayectoria de un cohete chino? 1:31 Washington (CNN) — El Pentágono dice que está rastreando un gran cohete chino que está fuera de control y listo para volver a entrar en la atmósfera de la Tierra este fin de semana, lo que genera preocupaciones sobre dónde pueden impactar sus desechos. Se espera que el cohete chino Long March 5B entre en la atmósfera de la Tierra «alrededor del 8 de mayo», según un comunicado del portavoz del Departamento de Defensa Mike Howard, quien dijo que el Comando Espacial de Estados Unidos está rastreando la trayectoria del cohete. ¿Por qué es tan difícil predecir dónde caerán las toneladas de basura espacial china que se espera caigan a la Tierra? 1:48 El «punto exacto de entrada a la atmósfera de la Tierra» del cohete no puede ser identificado hasta dentro de unas horas después de su reentrada, dijo Howard, pero el 18° Escuadrón de Control Espacial proporcionará actualizaciones diarias sobre la ubicación del cohete a través del sitio web Space Track. Los chinos utilizaron el cohete para lanzar parte de su estación espacial la semana pasada. Si bien la mayoría de los objetos de desechos espaciales se queman en la atmósfera, el tamaño del cohete, de 22 toneladas, ha generado preocupación de que partes grandes puedan volver a ingresar y causar daños si impactan áreas habitadas. Pero Jonathan McDowell, astrofísico del Centro de Astrofísica de la Universidad de Harvard, le dijo a CNN que la situación «no es el fin del mundo». «No creo que las personas deban tomar precauciones. El riesgo de que haya algún daño o de que impacte a alguien es bastante pequeño, no insignificante, podría suceder, pero el riesgo de que te impacte es increíblemente pequeño. Entonces, no perdería ni un segundo de sueño por esto como una amenaza personal», dijo. «Hay cosas mucho más importantes de las que preocuparse». McDowell explicó que señalar hacia dónde podrían dirigirse los escombros es casi imposible en este punto debido a la velocidad a la que viaja el cohete, incluso con cambios leves en las circunstancias que cambian drásticamente la trayectoria. «Esperamos que vuelva a entrar en algún momento entre el 8 y el 10 de mayo. Y en ese período de dos días, da la vuelta al mundo 30 veces. La cosa está viajando como a 30.000 kms por hora. Entonces, si estás a una hora de adivinar cuándo baja, estás a 30.000 kilómetros de decir en qué punto». «Por eso, no debes creer a nadie que te diga: ‘Oh, sí, he oído que se viene abajo en este lugar en particular'», agregó McDowell. «No les creas al menos unas horas antes del reingreso porque simplemente no lo sabremos de antemano». Qué riesgos hay en la caída del cohete chino a la Tierra 2:47 Aún así, el océano sigue siendo la apuesta más segura sobre dónde aterrizarán los desechos, dijo, solo porque ocupa la mayor parte de la superficie de la Tierra. «Si quieres apostar en qué lugar de la Tierra aterrizará algo, apuesta por el Pacífico, porque el Pacífico es la parte más grande de la Tierra. Es así de simple», dijo McDowell. La preocupación por los desechos espaciales se produce después de que China lanzó el primer módulo de su estación espacial planificada el jueves por la mañana desde el sitio de lanzamiento de Wenchang en la isla sureña de Hainan, según la Administración Nacional del Espacio de China. La estación espacial de China no se lanzará de una vez; se ensamblará a partir de varios módulos que despegarán en diferentes momentos. Los medios estatales chinos informan que la estación espacial del país estará en pleno funcionamiento para fines de 2022. Katie Hunt de CNN contribuyó a este informe.
