ICYMI: More Revelations About Fatoyinbo, #EndSARS, Tacha’s BBNaija Exit

September 30, 2019

Psst, we’ve got gist. Welcome to the new week by the way, but just in case you missed the happenings over the weekend we’ve got you covered. Here’s a brief gist of some of the hot things you may have missed while you were enjoying the weekend;

Biodun Fatoyinbo, Senior Pastor of Common Wealth of Zion Assembly, is in the news again for allegedly raping a pregnant woman who is hesitant about speaking up because of her married status.

This was disclosed by media personality and Editor-in-Chief of Today’s Woman magazine, Adesua Onyenokwu, during her interview with Arise News. She briefly gave an account of her interview sessions with Ese Walters-who accused Fatoyinbo in 2013 of a clandestine relationship with her– and two pastors who were aware of cases similar to that of Busola Dakolo, who accused Fatoyinbo of rape in June.

Meanwhile, I’ve got to say that I’m shook! I mean, these pastors had heard different accounts about one man and said nothing? And, why does Fatoyinbo keep popping up in the news for the same thing? Surely not everybody will be out to get him,as he claims, the same way?

#EndSARS has been trending endlessly on Twitter the whole year but this time around people aired their frustrations with the continuous harassment, sharing their experiences on Twitter.

Even a video made the rounds on the platform, showing a good Samaritan stopping SARS officials from harassing a couple of young men for no apparent reason.

Okay can we give it up to the man for doing the right thing!

But, can we just take a moment to deal with the fact that Nigerians have got no chill. Did you hear the people shouting in the background, telling the gladiator to move his car while he was busy defending the defenseless?

However, I suspect that man is a soldier, that level of confidence towards those SARS officials is on another level sha.

In another news, Tacha, madam “no leave, no transfer” of BBNaija PepperDem was shown the door after fighting with co-housemate Mercy. She got disqualified for engaging in physical violence with Mercy, who got two strikes.

What was most amazing to viewers of the show is that she got evicted few weeks to the grand finale, especially because she is known for her mantra, “no leave, no transfer.” But, Biggie couldn’t condone her physical violence so she got the boot even though she had the highest votes and still has fan loyalty
