Planned Terrorist Attack In Abuja Will Not Happen – Pastor Paul Enenche Reveals

Pastor Paul Enenche, the senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Center, has revealed that the prediction on a planned terrorist attack in Abuja will not come to pass.

There has been palpable tension in Abuja, and its environs since the United States and the United Kingdom warned of a possible terrorist attack in the nation’s capital.

The alert claimed that the terrorists were targeting government facilities, places of worship and schools, among others. Several government and private establishments have been shutting down operations over the fear of attack by the daredevil terrorist that have, over the years, kept the country hostage.

However, Pastor Enenche urged Nigerians to fear not because such a prediction would end in futility. The clergyman cautioned residents of Abuja against fear because terrorism thrives when there is fear.

Addressing his members at the church headquarters in Abuja on Sunday, the clergyman said Nigeria was meant to be the headquarters of the Coronavirus from prediction, but it failed.

According to Enenche, God who stopped such prediction from coming to pass would avert every planned terrorists attack in Abuja.

Benue Government To Drag Herders’ Association, Miyetti Allah To International Criminal Court

The Benue State Government has said it would drag a Fulani socio-cultural group, Miyetti Allah, to the International Criminal Court, ICC over invasion and killings in the state by armed Fulani herdsmen.

This was made known by the state’s Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Michael Gusa, in Makurdi on Thursday, who noted that the carnage going on in the state had now got to a head.

He explained that it was incumbent on the government to take the action since from available records, the masterminds of the genocide in the state were already known by their victims “and our killers also know themselves.”

The Commissioner who noted a recent threat by the National Secretary-General of Miyetti Allah, Alhaji Saleh Alhassan to drag Governor Samuel Ortom before the ICC said the threat was preemptive given their fear that the state government would take the group to the court.

The Attorney General said, “I think what they said was just to preempt what the Benue State Government would do to them because we recall that they have always come up to justify and own up to the killings in the state.

“So they are only saying that (about Ortom) to preempt what the Benue State is going to do. Recall that even when the attack and attempt on the life of Governor Ortom happened, they came in to accept responsibility – the Fulani Nationality Movement, FUNAM, claimed responsibility.

“So the entire genocide and ethnic cleansing that are going on in the state have been put on their door steps. We have records of their statements and all that is needed. “Recall that when the anti-open grazing law came into being in 2017, they came out to say that they would not obey the law.

And when the implementation started, they came on New Year’s Day and killed so many people in state.

“That massacre led to the mass burial that was conducted in the state in 2018. They came and claimed responsibility because they were protesting the implementation of that law.

“So we will approach the ICC over the matter because we know our killers, we know those who are perpetrating the killings in Benue State and our people deserve to get justice.”

Nigeria Facing Greatest Security Threat Since Civil War – Lai Mohammed

The Federal Government has said that the current insecurity has been the greatest challenge to the peace and security of Nigeria since the civil war.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said this in Abuja on Monday during a joint security conference.

He said the security challenges “have been daunting, from terrorism to banditry to kidnapping to separatist violence to crude oil theft to armed robbery and sundry crimes. It’s undoubtedly the greatest challenge to the peace and security of our great nation since the civil war from 1967 to 1970.”

According to him, it is the kind of challenge that would have overwhelmed many nations, “but thanks to the purposeful leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, we can say, I want to repeat, that the worst is over and peace and security are gradually returning to the land.

“Please don’t misunderstand or misrepresent this assertion. We may still witness isolated cases of security challenges here and there, but it will not be on the scale that we have witnessed in the past.
