Inside Mainland: The Mende Ritualist story is false

Since the emergence of the internet and social media, information gathering and dissemination has been done with a lot of ease across different platforms. Individuals, organizations and other multinationals have continued to use the platform for numerous purposes in line with achieving set targets.

However, with the rapid growth of social media and its usage among masses, such is also the increase in the rate of ills that is done via the platform. The platform has been used in propagating wrong and unverifiable claims as well as committing atrocities that is damaging to the images of persons and brands who fall victim.

Such is the case of Zenrise Marketers located at 1, Olabisi Close, Mende in the Maryland axis of Lagos.  The group, an affiliate of popular multi-level marketing firm, GNLD, were in a viral WhatsApp message, alleged to be involved kidnapping and other shoddy deals which they perpetrate in the building they occupy on Olabisi Close.

According to the viral message which surfaced on Monday, February 27, 2017, the user got a job invite after applying on a job vacancy site. To the user’s amazement, the job posters were ritualists who were only searching for the next victim.

However, in debunking the claims, the de-facto Councilor in the community, Hon. Abdul Adelekan told InsideMainland that “I was overwhelmed when I got the post about a company or group of persons purportedly into ritual activities on Olabisi Close which is where I reside. The occupants of the building are into legitimate network business and the question I asked was, how would such happen in a busy environment I have lived all my life?”

“At first, the residents in the community registered their fears when the lady (Cynthia Audu, CEO of Zenrise) moved in early 2016. This is because the number of people who throng the building increased few weeks after she moved into the apartment. After we asked questions, we then realized the company is an affiliate of GNLD and into multi-level marketing. So those who come there daily are the job seekers who they have invited for an interview,” he added.

Pastor Seeks Marriage Dissolution Because His Wife Told Congregation He Is A Ritualist

A pastor, Michael Temiloluwa, last Friday prayed a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve his union with his wife, Funmilayo, over her maligning and perpetual trouble-making attitude.

According to Temiloluwa, his wife had told the congregation in his church that he was planning to use her for rituals. He told the court: “Funmilayo has over a period of time tarnished my image, not only in our neighbourhood and in the church, but also in other public fora, by lying that I have engaged in unholy means as a pastor.

“I have tried every possible means of getting her to discontinue with these behaviours. I have even reported her to her relatives, but all to no avail.

“Worst still, she is an unrepentant trouble-maker, who uses all sorts of evil means to achieve her purpose. In fact, Funmilayo has neglected her role as a wife in order to make things difficult for me. In her typical disobedience, she sometimes leave my home for two months without my consent,” Temiloluwa, said.

However, his wife, Funmilayo, even though did not deny the allegations against her, claimed that her husband was far away from her. “Temiloluwa never sat down with me as a husband to discuss any issue, but rather preferred going to other people’s homes for unnecessary discussion,” Funmilayo stated.

She, however, refuted the allegation of being a troublemaker.The presiding President of the court, Mr. Ademola Odunade, however, adjourned judgment in the case till March 30, 2016, but ordered both parties to attend the court on that date with some of their relatives and the two children produced by the union.

Ogun Police Issue Shoot-At-Sight Order Against Ritualists, Human Parts Dealers

Police in Ogun state will henceforth shoot armed cultists and “ritualists” at sight, the state command announced Thursday.

The commissioner of police, Abdulmajid Ali, gave the order shortly after parading 23 suspected criminals at the State Police Headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, saying that the command will not tolerate ?the rising cases of cultism and ritual killings.

He said the shoot-at-sight order will not amount to extra-judicial killing because the intention of armed criminals is either to kill or maim.

Mr. Alli said police would soon raid various campuses to apprehend suspected cult members, adding that the command had identified their abode and would get rid of them at all cost.

At the briefing, the commissioner announced that the suspects paraded were arrested in connection with murder, kidnapping, cultism and unlawful possession of human skull while several weapons, including guns, cutlasses, assorted charms and expended cartridges were recovered from them.

On the killing of Iyaloja of Ijebuland, Sadiat Elewuju, who was murdered on July 8, the police commissioner disclosed that one person had been charged to court for the killing but declined to reveal the identity of the suspect.

“Our investigation so far confirmed that he perpetrated the act? but tried to hide under a cover that six people were seen.

“We didn’t want to parade him because it’s a case that we have already charged to court. From all available information and the investigation conducted, the boy is a very close person to the woman. He was the person that saw the Iyaloja last, ?he was also the one that took care of her,” the police boss said.
