I Have Details Of How Pastor T.B. Joshua Was Killed — Ghanaian Bishop
Apopular Ghanaian cleric, Bishop Sam Owusu says the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet T. B. Joshua did not die a natural death but was killed by some conspirators.
Owusu, in a video that had now gone viral, told his congregation that he has the details of the circumstances surrounding Joshua’s death but would not reveal them yet.
According to him, Joshua was the most famous Christian minister in the history of Black Africa.
He compared the deceased prophet to Bishop David Oyedepo, presiding bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel.
The Ghanaian cleric also claimed Joshua was more popular than American preachers such as T.D Jakes and Kenneth Hagin.
In the video, Owusu said, “T. B. Joshua was killed, he didn’t die. He was killed because, by history, there is no black man of God in the world that on YouTube, his followers are more than a country.
“Yes, the followers of T. B. Joshua, there is no president in the world, no President in the world has followers as compared to T. B. Joshua. In the world, there is no single man that Presidents submit to. In the whole world, it has never happened, that there is a certain man of God that Presidents will leave their Presidency and come to his church. T. B. Joshua was killed, he has finished his work. I have the details, I will not share that one now.
“T. B. Joshua was the highest rewarder of YouTube currency in the whole world, there is no human being that gets paid by YouTube as much as T. B. Joshua because of how people follow and watch his videos.
“They killed T. B. Joshua because, in the history of the black race, there is no black man that is popular as compared to T. B. Joshua, he is popular than T. D. Jakes, he was more accepted than Kenneth Hagin, he is popular and accepted than Bishop David Oyedepo.
”By the history of mankind, there is no black man in Africa who has properties, a school in Israel, a school, land and property in the Philippines… there is no black man…T. B. Joshua didn’t die, they calculated his death. What they used to kill him, I know and the person they sent, I saw.”

Seven Feared Killed As Hausa, Yoruba Okada Riders Clash In Ogun
No fewer than seven persons were said to have been killed in a bloody clash between Hausas and Yorubas working as commercial motorcyclists at Dangote Cement Factory junction in Ibese, Yewa North Local Government Area of Ogun State.
It was gathered that trouble initially started between the Okada riders and the unions, who allegedly increased the ticket fee from N600 to N800.
The incident, however, snowballed into an ethnic crisis between the Hausas and the Yorubas in the area.
In less than 24 hours of the crisis, seven persons have been reportedly killed.
The Ogun State Police Command has confirmed the incident on Tuesday.
Speaking, the Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said, however, that he could not confirm the number of casualties at the moment.
Oyeyemi said, “The issue is currently under control. It was a minor struggle that had snowballed into a serious crisis.
“They said said the unions increased their ticket fee from N600 to N800 and that was how the crisis started. But how it then turned into Hausa and Yoruba crisis is what I don’t know.
“But, we are on top of the matter. The situation has been brought under control. Our men are still there as we speak,” Oyeyemi said.

New York Gov Cuomo Sexually Harassed Women, State Probe Finds
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo engaged in a pattern of sexual harassment of women employees in his state office, violating federal and state laws, an independent investigation by the state attorney general’s office has found.
“The investigation found that Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed current and former New York State employees by engaging in unwelcome and non-consensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women,” New York Attorney General Letitia James said.
“The independent investigation found that Governor Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women, many of whom were young women, by engaging in unwanted groping, kisses, hugging and by making inappropriate comments,” James told a media conference on Tuesday.
Once a rising star in the Democratic Party, Cuomo now faces potential lawsuits and possible criminal prosecution amid rising calls for his resignation for the harassment documented in the independent investigation.
In a video statement on Tuesday, Cuomo disputed the findings of the independent investigation, said his conduct and motives had been mischaracterized by his accusers, and gave no sign that he was contemplating resignation.
He called the investigation a “long and painful” process for him and his family. “The facts are much different than what has been portrayed,” Cuomo said. “I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances.”
