STUDENT OF ABU RETURNS N2.5m TO OWNER

Two students of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, Ahmed Usman and Ahmed Suleiman, have returned a missing N2.5million to the owner, Mallam Muhammad Kudu Ibrahim.

Ibrahim, a Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Art and Science, Federal College of Education, Kotangora, Niger State, misplaced the cash on Wednesday last week, CAMPUSLIFE learnt.

The Federal College of Education, Kotongora, is affiliated to ABU.

Suleiman, a 300-Level student of Social Studies Education, told CAMPUSLIFE how the money was found in an open bag.

He said: “It was on Tuesday (last week). The Students’ Union president and I were driving out of the school when we saw a leather bag and, on getting close, we realised that there was money in it.

“At first, we were scared seeing such amount of money in an open place. Besides, the leather bag was not zipped. I parked the car and we alighted from it. We looked around and nobody noticed us. Then, we picked the money, put it in the car and moved straight to the school’s security office. We gave the security man our phone numbers and told him to contact us should anybody complain of losing his or her valuables.”

Suleiman explained that though they dropped their contacts at the security unit, they decided not to disclose the contents in the bag.

“Yesterday, in the morning, I heard an announcement on the FM (radio station) that the owner of the money was looking for it. I immediately informed my friend who asked me what we could do, and I told him that he should wait until I get to the school.

“On getting to the school, there was a call for us to report at the security. We went there. We were asked what we saw. Meanwhile, the person who lost the money was with the security man awaiting our arrival,” Suleiman further explained..

Usman recalled how they both imagined what could be going on in the mind of the owner when they saw that the amount in the bag was huge.

“I was happy deep inside me because we never entertained any fraudulent thoughts. Naturally, different devilish thoughts jostled in our minds but thank God we were able to overpower such thoughts and kept the money until we saw the owner,” he said.

Kudu Ibrahim, who owns the cash said he had already lost hope of seeing it again. He praised Suleiman and Usman for their rare display of virtue.

He said: “It’s true I lost some amount of money by the roadside yesterday. I later went there to check if the money was there but, unfortunately, I couldn’t find it. The actual amount is N2.5 million, and the money belongs to an association which I chair. It’s a thrift and loan scheme.

“I complained to the security officials of the school and I was told to wait because those who found the money left their contacts, should anybody come for missing items. I was given back the money intact. I was even asked to check through but I knew it was complete because it was packed in N500,000 each in the bag.”

Nonetheless, Ibrahim promised to compensate the two students with an undisclosed amount.

The Investigative Officer of the school, Mr Olusikun Samuel, also confirmed the missing cash had been found.

“I’m very familiar with the case. It was reported to us on Tuesday at 3:30pm. I handled the matter before we knew those persons that actually found the money which was N2.5million. I confirmed it,” he said.

In a telephone conversation with CAMPUSLIFE, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the school, Mr Andrew Pius Ibrahim, commended the students for returning such a huge amount. He added that the school management was aware of the matter.

“It’s a virtue that it’s only peculiar to few people. Not all persons can see such amount of money and return it. We really commend them and call on others to emulate them. It’s something the school is so proud of,” Andrew said.

ANOTHER OPM FREE ESTATE FOR REPENTED SEX WORKERS AND GIRLS RESCUED FROM BABY SELLING SYNDICATES IS COMMISSIONED.

 

Apostle Chibuzor Gift Chinyere the General Overseer of Omega Power Ministry commissioned one of the biggest free Estates in Nigeria which is specifically for repented sex workers and girls rescued from baby selling syndicates.

 

The Free Estate that is situated at Omokiri Play Ground, Aluu

*Is built in a serene environment

*Has free skill acquisition centres where the girls would be trained on Hairdressing, tailoring, baking and toiletry making.

*Is made up of 72 flats comprising of one bedroom flats.

*Has a standby Sound prove generator

*And everything for comfortable living like quality water, free feeding, television sets to unwind, Etc is provided for the girls.

Speaking to the press, Apostle Chibuzor Reminded the people that his goal is not to build the biggest house or drive the best of cars but his goal is to see that souls make it to heaven and beaten and battered people are given a helping hand. He said that his target on earth is to make sure that two billions souls make heaven that is why he is doing everything possible to make his vision of two billion souls for heaven a possibility including rescuing sex workers selling their bodies for money. Apostle Chibuzor made it clear that they were more churches than schools yet children littered the area due to lack of education. He enjoined every pastor to make it a point of duty to open free schools for less privileged children and lend helping hands to the needy because church money is for Gods people and not for the pastor’s merriment. If every pastor made conscious effort to use some part of the tithes and offerings coming into church to open free foundations, crime would be curbed and poverty reduced to the barest minimum.

The girls that were preached to in Casablanca GRA and Cool breeze in Diobu, random repented sex workers, pregnant repented sex workers and girls rescued from the busted baby factory .ETC were beside themselves with joy as they moved into the free estate were everything is made available for them including feeding, clothing, toiletries and total body maintenance.

Some of the girls who spoke to the press were a 15years old girl that was rescued from the busted baby factory whom the church was sending back to school so that her dream of completing her education is a reality, the mother of three that was given one million, the girl that was sent to a nursing school and many others. Etc.  Some of the girls are gainfully employed in the OPM Free Hospital, others have shops and business places of their own while the rest are going through various kinds of trainings.

 

Not only the mothers were put into consideration, the babies were not left out as adequate provision like baby beds, baby food, baby clothing’s, medications ETC. was made available for the babies being born by the pregnant girls rescued from baby selling syndicates and other sex workers. The baby that was born by a mentally deranged woman was not left out even the baby of the woman who Apostle Chibuzor rescued from the clutch of a doctor that seized her child because she could not afford hospital bills. The woman was reunited with her baby .The children’s schooling and general welfare would be taken care of by the church.

 

Everything the church does is from the offerings and tithe.

FORMER SEX WORKER TURNS MILLIONAIRE

After a former sex worker who went into the distasteful trade of prostitution because the father of her 3 children abandoned her and bolted was preached to, she had a change of heart and decided to live a godly life and serve God.

 

Sometime ago we brought to public awareness good news about how Apostle Chibuzor Gift Chinyere invaded the environs of Casablanca, preaching the gospel to sex workers that littered around the area. He took the girls to his home, fed them with good food, preached the word of God to them and gave them money to come to church the next Sunday if they decided to have a change of heart.

 

Cynthia.A . was one of such girls who made a decision to change for the better, she was in church the next Sunday and denounced on the altar. After denouncing, just like others, she was moved to the free estate set aside for repented sex workers; was taken through thorough rehabilitation and was empowered with money to start up a decent trade.

 

On the 14th of July 2019, she returned to the altar to thank God for his good works in her life, she said that she was so happy with her new found Christian life and her business was moving speedily. She was filled with emotion as she recounted her ugly past life style, her parents were pastors but yet she wallowed in sin and sunk deeper daily, everything they did to pull her out proved abortive until the intervention of Apostle Chibuzor Gift Chinyere. She encouraged other girls who held fast to her past lifestyle to repent and give up on such waywardness because such life is far from being gainful.

 

After listening to her testimony and seeing her high level of genuine repentance, Apostle Chibuzor Gift Chinyere gifted her with the sum of 1 million Naira. She was beside herself with shock at the unexpected gift and thanked the man of God for his benevolence and generousity.

 

She was grateful for what was done for her and was given more. Gratitude is indeed the bedrock of success.

 

Congratulation Sis Cynthia,  you are now a proud millionaire.

Alex Ikwechegh Foundation Visits Woman Whose Fingers Were Cut Off By Fulani Herdsmen

Alex Ikwechegh Foundation Visits Woman Whose Fingers Were Cut Off By Fulani Herdsmen In Aba, Gives Her Cash, Employment Opportunity (Photos)

 

A charity organization, Alex Ikwechegh Foundation has visited Miss Esther Nmecha, a lady whose fingers were chopped off by Fulani herdsmen in Aba in March 31, 2019.

 

ABN TV gathered that the proprietor of the Foundation and a former Aba North Chairman, Alex Ikwechegh during the visit made a cash donation of undisclosed amount and offered an employment opportunity to the victim to take care of her personal needs.

 

Mr. Ikwechegh who was represented by the Spokesperson of the Foundation, said he was shocked when he heard of the news of Miss Esther Nmecha’s plight.

 

“We are here because our Chairman, Alex Ikwechegh understands your plight. In fact, he was dejected and devastated when he heard the news and that’s why he sent us to donate this money to you.

 

“This is not Abia State that we use to know before. We had peace but now with the coming of the Herdsmen, our people now live in fear which ought not to be so.

 

“We want peace in our state and hopefully, the security agents will act immediately to stop the nefarious activities of the Herdsmen, ” he said.

 

He also charged the security agencies to bring the perpetrators of the dastardly act to justice.

 

Narrating her ordeal, the victim, Miss Esther Nmecha said trouble started around 4pm on the fateful day when herdsmen encroached on her business premises along Peoples Road, Ogbor Hill, Aba.

 

She said an appeal to the invaders to leave the premises fell on deaf ears as they threatened to kill her.

 

“In making real their threat, one of the Fulani herdsmen brought out his machete and targeted to cut my neck.

 

“It was in an attempt to defend myself that he missed his target and cut off my four fingers.

 

“I was rushed to the Police Clinic at the Central Police Station, Aba, where they immediately referred me to the Aba General Hospital as a result of the critical nature of my case.”

 

“I thank Ikwechegh for coming to my aid, may God bless him abundantly “.

 

ABN TV reports that the woman, Miss Esther Nmecha, needed N60,000 for treatment and had solicited for help from Nigerians.

 

The Foundation also paid hospital bills of other patients in the hospital.

 

The patients thanked the Foundation for coming to their aid at this critical time and asked God to bless him.

My new friend

Meet my new friend, his name is Adam. I met this determined hard working boy on Thursday morning at a Washing bay in my area, he had a basket of yellow bananas which he sales for a living, being a little boy that he is I got interested in knowing why he was selling bananas at the age of 7yrs because I had a sense that he is quite young to be doing this. He told me his story:

His mother died when he was 3 months old, after the mother’s death, his father disappeared and abandoned him completely, the family members took him to the village to live with his grandmother, it was at the age of 4 that his grandmother opened up to him about his mother’s passing. When he made 5yrs, the situation became so hard in the village and his Aunty picked him up and brought him to her residence in Ndeeba. The Aunty told him to hawk bananas as a source of income to raise money for his school fees, he has to work every single day during the holidays to secure fees for every term. When I saw him yesterday, I gave him 20,000 and told him to go back home and rest b’se he was looking so tired and exhausted. When he reached home he put 5k into his private wooden money tin and handed over 15k to his Aunty as the yield for the day. Yesterday I told him to come and meet me up today at the same location where we met, he had to get there at 10am this morning but he made it at 8:30am. We have spent the whole day together, took him to town for shopping, had breakfast and lunch together, took him to my place and he showered very well, then went to meet his Aunty at their residence, the Aunty is a tailor and doesn’t gain much from her job and can’t afford the basics of life. I can’t share what she told me about her struggles because it is so emotional and heartbreaking. I have paid his school fees until 2021(I have left the fees with the Aunty). When i was leaving him he said “Today is the best day of my life”. He cried and I too broke down because the moment has been over sentimental and the day has been emotional all through.

 

Note: This post is not a show off and I know I cant take all the kids off the road but this boy is just one out of the many but one day God will see us through.

May God bless you as you too help somebody in your own capacity. Blessings.
