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.


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 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.

David Oyelowo grants scholarship to survivors of Boko Haram insurgency

David Oyelowo will fund the education of five Nigerian girls who survived the Boko Haram insurgency in the north-east.

The Hollywood actor made the announcement of the scholarship in a post on his Instagram page.

According to Oyelowo, having managed to overcome the effects of the Boko Haram insurgency, “the journey toward their true destiny has begun”.

He wrote: “Proud to present the glorious recipients of the David Oyelowo Leadership Scholarship. They survived terror at the hands of Boko Haram, now the journey toward their true destiny has begun. Learn more at @geancofdn”.


The David Oyelowo Leadership Scholarship programme, which the girls are beneficiaries of, is organised in partnership with the Geanco Foundation.

Speaking on the development, Geanco, a non-governmental organisation, said the insurgency kept one of the girls out of school for three years, and that she recently won a essay contest.

“Our @davidoyelowo Leadership Scholars, right before heading back to school after their winter break. Such bright colors and smiles!! The inspirational young lady in purple on the far left just won a regional essay contest,” the Instagram post read.

“Boko Haram kept her out of school for three years, but she is roaring back and excelling after only just a year and a half at her new school. So, so, so proud.”

The Boko Haram insurgency in the north-east has cut short the education of thousands of children, with many now residing in internally displaced persons (IDP) camp with their parents.
