Gunmen Murder Pastor Inside His Church In Abuja
An Abuja-based pastor, Rev Emeka Evans Unaegbu has been killed by gunmen inside his church in Nyanya-Jikwoyi area of Abuja. Emeka Evans, as he was popularly called, was reported to be conducting a lone vigil in his Goodnews Power Assembly International, when he was attacked.
Emeka Evans’ last post on Facebook before his death was on 10 April, when he invited the faithful to a ‘Victory celebration’ on 11 April and a “communion revival service on Wednesday 14 April”.
He was not alive for the latter service, as unidentified assailants silenced him. Meanwhile, an obituary published by Stella Okoro has attracted many comments of lamentations, with people expressing shock about Unaegbu’s death.
Dr. Tony O.Tony wrote: My bosom brother, it still seems to me like a hallucination. I am still fantasizing and finding it absolutely difficult to accept the reality of your abrupt demise.
“You were a hero. You fought and you conquered. Rest in peace in the bosom of the Lord, where no death shall power over you anymore”.

Lawmaker Caught Naked During Zoom Conference [Photo]
A Canadian member of parliament, William Amos, was caught stark naked in a virtual meeting of the House of Commons of Canada. It was gathered that William Amos appeared on the screens of his fellow lawmakers completely naked. But because Amos was not speaking then, he was visible only to Parliament members and staffers on an internal video conference feed.
The pandemic has meant many Canadian lawmakers participate in sessions via video conference instead of in person.
A screenshot of the incident showed the lawmaker standing behind ‘a desk between the Quebec and Canadian flags, his private parts hidden by what appears to be a mobile phone in one hand’.
Following disapproval by a legislator, in a statement, Amos described the incident as “an unfortunate error.″
He said, “My video was accidentally turned on as I was changing into my work clothes after going for a jog.
“I sincerely apologize to my colleagues in the House of Commons for this unintentional distraction. Obviously, it was an honest mistake and it won’t happen again.”
A legislator for the opposition Bloc Quebecois party, Claude DeBellefeuille, raised the incident in a point of order after question period, suggesting that parliamentary decorum requires male Parliament members to wear a jacket and tie — and a shirt, underwear, and trousers.
Speaker Anthony Rota later thanked DeBellefeuille for her “observations” and clarified that while he had not seen anything, he checked with technicians and confirmed they saw something.
He reminded lawmakers to always be vigilant when they are near a camera and microphone.
