It was gathered that the 41-year-old Aghanenu, committed the fraud when he was the manager of the bank's branch and was arrested after an investigation by the bank management discovered that he had diverted N4.014 million from the deceased’s bank account, while N10 million was said to have been fraudulently withdrawn from Lawal’s account Before the crime was committed, Okpala, 34, was said to to have presented himself and another accomplice who is now on the run, to Aghanenu as the relatives of the deceased with some forged documents authorising the bank to release the sum.

Heartbreaking story of how a 3 year old was Raped and Bled to Death

Blessing Nwachukwu-Frank ,a facebook user shared the heartbreaking story below about her sister Grace Chikere Nwosu who was raped by a 22 year old man and bled to death at age 3 in 1994.She says she has decided to share the story so that others will learn from it. “So many people have wondered who my immediate second sister was. Even friends never met her or saw a pic of her. When she passed away, my mom was so distraught that she burnt all pics and saved only this. Take a good look at this sweet and innocent face. Her name was Grace Chikere Nwosu and she was my sister. I’m about to tell a story that hasn’t been told since 1994 not to gain sympathy but to advice and change lives. She never got to grow to leave a mark but I hope with this story, she does. I want her to be the face of children’s advocate cos she deserved at least that since her life was cut short at the age of 3 by a 22 year old man named Daniel whom I have never set my eyes on since 1994. This story is the reason I went into talk show- not for personal fame but hope that one I will be famous enough to get people to hear my story but I can’t keep waiting so if this will save lives, then so be it. If you know from my stories, we grew up in the slum of Mafoluku, Oshodi. Then when I turned six, my sister was three and my mom went to the hospital to give birth to a third child. Despite being poor, we were a very loving family and my parents still made sure we attended private schools but starved and drank Garri like for real not a metaphor. My mom used to say, education will change our condition. This story isn’t about me today so I will skip the details of my past. Perhaps someday I will have the courage to tell my own story. So my mom had this house help whose name was Chidinma, she also went to school but lived with us to take care of us after school hours. My mom was a kind soul who took her like her own but Chidinma was blinded by greed. So on that fateful period, my mom went to the hospital with my dad and aunt for some days, Chidinma sold my 3 year old sister for 150 naira to my neighbor, Daniel… I was 6 and had no clue why my sister wasn’t home. Little did I know that right in our face-me-I face you compound, Daniel RAPED my three year old sister till she bled. They returned her to our home to cover the act but my mom came home that day with my aunt and saw my sister bleeding and unable to move. My kid sister proceeded to give names then fell unconscious… Needless to say, she died after a week. She died on a Friday right in my mom’s arms and in my presence. My mom dropped the court case and had us move. I never understood why but she said God would enact justice but I wanted court justice. I wanted Daniel to pay for his actions. Pay for robbing the life and innocence of my kid sister. I didn’t get that justice but had to live with that pain for so many years before I learned to forgive Nkiruka's survivor story I put up her pic cos she’s late. The media doesn’t put up pic of rape kids cos they are underage and this perpetrators don’t get to realize what they did emotionally. I don’t know where Daniel is but I hope he sees this and remembers and apologizes to my family cos he not only ruined my sister but my trust in men when I was growing up. Made me live a life in fear of men until my dad, counselor and pastors gave me courage. She’s late since 1994 and she would have been 25. She was lively and smart and even at three, had more guts than me and always defended me. I have never forgotten anything about her. I loved her and I lost her before we could spend our best years together. Dear rapists, these children are just kids. Helpless, selfless and defenseless. We are to defend them not ruin them. What is sexually attractive about a child? They don’t even have developed sexual organs except for peeing. Parents, be careful of who you entrust your child to. The world is dark. Anything is possible. In five minutes, a rapist can change the life of their victim and loved ones. Just for five minutes pleasure, you ruin the lives of others. Control your five minutes urge. Sex with a child is without consent cos they are ignorant of life. A child can never seduce you. Please let’s fight for the lives of children. Let’s be Guardians all over the world and weed out perpetrators wherever. Never cover them up in fear of shame I put up this pic cos I’m the only legal in age survivor of my family. She’s late now for 22 years so I’m within my law. I wish her rest with the lord. Chikere Grace, mommy, daddy and our brother are with you now. You aren’t alone anymore. May all their souls rest in peace and may my sister’s name be remembered in honor of the lives she will save with her story. Love you all my late family, xoxo *I couldn't bare to put up her picture.It was too heartbreaking.

The Word Today

I Timothy 1:18
This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare.
For every child of God, there are prophecies that have gone ahead of you, prophecies that should be fulfilled in your life. For example the bible says …Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings (Isaiah 3:10). Now if you look into your life and see that things are not the way the Lord says it should be, then you are required to fight a good warfare that will deliver the desired result into your life and destiny by the power of the prophecy. Our God is a good God and He has already released to His children all that they need for life and Godly living. Now if God has released by prophecy all you need in life, why are you not getting them? One reason is enemy confrontation, contention and possession of what belongs to you. Paul said …For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries (I Corinthians 16:9). To claim and receive answers to these prophetic declarations, you will have to contend in battle through prayers till you see God’s intervention in your life.
Deuteronomy 2:24; Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle. Child of God, don’t sit in despair; your health and well being has been provided for, rise up and take it in Jesus name. Don’t watch the devil sit on your destiny smiling. Never keep silent in prayer until you get what God has kept for you; God bless you.

Low Self-Esteem?

Alot of people struggle with their self esteem,always bothered about what people think about the way they look,the way they walk or about the way they talk.These set of people will never have self confidence if they continue to bother about what people say about them and will continue to feel inferior before their friends.
Let me tell you,nobody's opinion about you matters.What matters most is what you think about yourself.When people say you are ugly,think within yourself that you are the prettiest lady or most handsome man and carry yourself about just like the prettiest lady or the most handsome man would do.
Do people say you are too short?Raise your head and walk tall because that is what matters;what you think is what you are.
I had my own share of issues growing up,I discovered I had keloids in very visible places.I resulted into wearing long clothes just to prevent people asking questions and me feeling like the worst person on earth. I remember feeling I could never get married because my scars were ugly.Then I discovered the more I did that the more people talked.So I started feeling free,never bothered about what people say and now I am free and i got married to the man of my dreams who doesn't even see the scars. My confidence is back and I do not accept second best because I have learned to love myself.
You too can do it!

The Word Today

Our text today is Proverbs 20:6-19 and it talks about faithfulness.Faithfulness can be described as the ability to stay loyal to somebody or something over a long period of time.Faithfulness is a virtue that is gradually slipping away from our lives.We are not faithful to God,we are not faithful to ourselves,not faithful to our commitments not even faithful to our businesses.Employees are not faithful to their employers,Christians are not faithful in their tithes. The list can go on and on but we need to ask God to destroy every unfaithfulness in us.
God hates unfaithfulness, he is looking for true believers to worship him in faith,spirit and in truth.HE is looking for those that will praise him in times of sorrow and in times of joy ,those who will burst out saying;I know my redeemer liveth" when all doesn't look good.That is how we ought to live.
Be faithful in little things for in them you will find your strength to manage the big things in your life.

The Word today

Text for today is take from 2 Kings 13:21
And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood up on his feet.
Burial in the bible days was a very big deal. Abraham had to buy a very special burying place where he buried his wife. That was the same place he was buried when he died. Joseph also instructed the children of Israel not to bury him in Egypt, he instructed them to carry his remain alongside with them to the Promised Land. If the dead man in our text had his way, he would never had wanted to be thrown into any grave just like that, he would have wanted a very befitting burial in his own special grave. This was not to be because God arranged trouble for the people that were carrying him which made them throw him into any available grave they saw. How do I know that it was God that arranged the enemies to come against the people who were to bury this man? Immediately they threw him into Elisha’s grave, he came back to life; they threw him into his breakthrough. Today God will disappoint your will for His will to give you a miracle.

I Corinthians 2:8; Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. God had already told Joseph that he will be a king early in life, but just as God was telling him of his kingdom, Satan arranged trouble for him. One thing the Devil never knew was that trouble is what will lead him to his throne. Are you in any trouble now, God will make that problem you are facing a stepping stone to your breakthrough in life. As it is written had they known they would not have crucified the Lord of glory I Corinthians. 2:8. that trouble you are passing through now is a set up for glory. That affliction will work for you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory (II Corinthians 4:17) in Jesus name.

The Word Today

Our text today is 2 Corinthians 1:3
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort.
The God we serve is the God of all comfort, the God that takes delight in comforting His children …Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God (II Corinthians 1:4). When He sent Jesus Christ into the world, He gave Him the same mandate as His; comfort the Zion dwellers …To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified (Isaiah 61:2-3). This is why we can come out strong in the midst of trials and tribulations with excitement on our faces. Our God always turns our mourning into dancing and sorrows into celebration. When we should be wearing a heavy heart, God turns it into a garment of praise. Praise the Lord!
II Corinthians 4:8-10; We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. Today, take out quality time to thank and praise God for not allowing you to be where the devil thought you would be. Praise the Lord!
