Man impregnates, weds teenage sister in Anambra church

Just like a fairy tale, a 25-year-old man, Mr. Chiadi Ezeibekwe, said he impregnated his 17-year-old younger sister. As if that was not enough, he wedded her at a church at their Agba village in Ekwulobia, Anambra State. Agba youths, who saw the marriage as “an abomination,” burnt down the church where the wedding was consummated.

It was learnt that the wedding was conducted by Chiadi’s elder brother, Mr. Chijioke Ezeibekwe, a Shepherd of Dwelling Fullness of God Church, Agba. Chiadi quoted Deuteronomy 36: 6, which, according to him, permits marriage between brothers and ssters of the same parents. However, a member of the church, who spoke on condition of anonymity, countered that. He referred the brothers to Leviticus 18:9, which clearly speaks against marriage between brother and sister.

A source noted that immediately their eldest brother, Mr. Emeka Ezeibekwe, heard of the “incestuous marriage,” he alerted the clan head, who summoned the family to an emergency meeting. When their father, popularly, known as “Luisco,” was contacted for comments, he said that his concern was a way out of the situation, since according to him, “what has happened, has happened’’.

Addressing the crowd which gathered on their premises, their mother claimed that his son’s action was biblical, saying Chiadi paid her the bride price. Further enquiries showed that Chiadi and some members of the family were baptised into the Adventist Church after leaving their former church in August 2016.

“Since they were baptised into the church, they have been engaged in weird and rebellious behaviour as well as false teachings,’’ said Mr. Onyeka, a member of the Adventist Church in Ekwulobia. “Because of their rebellious attitude and false teachings, the Seventh Day Adventist Church expelled them since May 2017.

Not long after that, Mr. Chijioke Ezeibekwe started his own church,” Onyeka added. It was also learnt that their grandmother passed away a few days after she found out about the marriage. The Igwe-in-Cabinet had since summoned the family for interrogation.

NURTW chieftain debunks being on wanted list

•Police: We can’t verify

 

 

As controversies continued to trail the emergence of transport unions’ leadership in Lagos, a chieftain of National Union of Road and Transport Workers (NURTW) Lagos State branch, Mr Mustapha Adekunle, yesterday debunked claims he was on wanted list in connection with the crisis among the union. Saturday Telegraph gathered that there had been cold war among the various transportation unions, especially NURTW and the Road Transport Employer Association (RTEAN) in the state over leadership tussle.

 

 

Over 200 members of the RTEAN on Thursday stormed the Lagos State Secretariat, Alausa, to protest the allegation of imposition of the state chairman on them by the state government and the national body of the union. But speaking on the recent All Progressives Congress rally crisis, Adekunle described rumour of his alleged involvement as fallacious news orchestrated by his enemies within the union to blackmail him.

 

 

He said the rumour was an attempt to drag his name in the mud with a view to working against his recent appointment by the national body of the union as a member of the caretaker committee of the union in Lagos. He said he was also targeted by the attackers in the crisis that left an NURTW chieftain stabbed. “The news that I am wanted by the police is fallacious and misleading. First, let me clear here that, I am not on the wanted list of the police.

 

“The issue they were referring to was the violence which occurred in one of the APC rallies in which myself and Alhaji MC Oluomo were the targets of the aggressors.” Meanwhile, speaking with Saturday Telegraph on his claim, the Lagos Police Public Reations Officer, Bala Elkana, said he was not aware whether the chieftain was declared wanted or not. “When was that? I don’t know if he was declared wanted. I’m not sure. I can’t say,” the PPRO said.

“The attack aircraft scored devastating hits on the building completely destroying it and neutralised the ISWAP occupants. The few other fighters seen fleeing the location were mopped-up by follow-on attacks. “The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its operations against the terrorists in the North-East.”

It means that the aircraft will fly for its operations. “I make sure that this type of seminar is done quarterly to remind us of safety locations of all our activities in our operations both in the air and on the ground. “This seminar is planned primarily to facilitate unrestricted exchange of views and ideas by all stakeholders and professionals with the aim of enhancing safety practices in NAF aircraft and armament maintenance activities.”
