Abuja Insecurity Heightened as Blogger Mugged, Narrowly escapes death: Residents Cry Out

I am still in shock because I was with fellow blogger, Kevin Fyne face in the same event he was leaving from just before he was stabbed and robbed.
Oh dear...see our picture from the Album Listening party we attended. Below is the official press release by Bloggers in Abuja about the gory incident,

Abuja May 20, 2017 1.47am The spate of insecurity in the FCT has become worrisome given the poor and dilapidating infrastructure and lack of lit street lamps that has made night driving a horrendous experience in most parts. The daily menace of snatching of properties, stabbing, rape and armed robbery has become unbearable and residents live in fear of who the next target could be.

Just last night, an Abuja based blogger Kevin Fyneface escaped death narrowly with a Youth corps member, Sunday Joseph on their way from Maitama having attended an Album Launch event by Dr. Paul Oluikpe. They were waylaid, stabbed and robbed just after Mabushi flyover, before Berger round-about in Abuja.

They had parked briefly to ascertain a fault in their car just a few minutes after 9pm when hoodlums brandishing knives jumped at them from the shadows, stabbed them, and in the struggle took away valuables including an Invicta Wristwatch, an iPad with sim 08044518124 ntel line, a tablet, phones with MTN sim 07031632950 and a small bag.
In the frenzy of the deep cut and having fought to save their lives, the victims made a quick call with another phone the bandits couldn’t take to Police Hotlines but couldn’t get help. They approached a police patrol at Fruit market in Maitama but were declined help. They drove back to Berger outpost to report the incident to the police but were referred instead to the divisional headquarters.

At this point, they made their way to Dr. Hassan Hospital in Maitama to get treated since they had been bleeding all along. They were treated and their several wounds stitched. The blogger fyneface, explained that his own cut was deep and in his words “I thank God for courage to fight back, it would have been worse. The doctor explained that the deep cut is around my scapula so I cannot engage in any strenuous activity”. 

When asked if he could recognize the robbers, he explained that “their heights were about 1.7m and 1.56m, dark skinned. One with a green blue and white polo shirt about 1.71m in height came to assess us first before the other 2 robbers rushed in on us.

Residents have agreed that those areas are high risks and the presence of police patrols notwithstanding. With this incident, we call on the FCT ministry and the Federal government to provide more security and a more equipped police force to combat crime and safeguard the lives of citizens.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
