Popular Nigerian Comedian, Okey Bakassi has called out clerics and state governors seeking support and justifying the actions of bandits.Okey Bakassi
Recently, some governors have supported the calls for negotiation with bandits in order to end kidnappings in their States.
Also, recall that popular Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, had said the bandits were peaceful people and victims of circumstances who were forced into criminality.
The Islamic Cleric had called for a more lenient approach to the bandits’ activities, adding that attacking them brings out the ‘monster’ in them.
Speaking on the development, Bakassi on his Instagram page wondered why no one is settling Nigerian youths who are struggling to survive.
According to him, rewarding insurgents, bandits and those who go into crime in Nigeria has now become the order of the day, while other Nigerians struggling do not have any support.
Bakassi said: “I want to call your attention to this disturbing trend in Nigeria. Service chiefs retired but recently the National Assembly confirmed them as ambassadors. The same service s chiefs who could not provide security.
“Also let me bring to your attention that recently some clerics and governors have been justifying what bandits are doing. Some are saying they should be settled and accepted into the society.
“My question is when you settle all insurgents, who is taking care of Nigerians who have refused to go into crime but are struggling .
“COVID-19 has been here for a year but no one is talking about how entertainers, Nigerian youths who have chosen not to do violence or crime would survive.
“If you Google how much an AK 47 cost, let’s say we all decide to purchase AK 47 and take youths into one forest and begin to kidnap innocent people suddenly the government who is busy can now shake your hands and defend why you should be settled by government because you have gone through a lot.
“Suddenly the pastors and congregation will be praying for peace, security agencies will start negotiating ransom. We must help ourselves in Nigeria.”
“Nigerian pastors are fraudsters” – Singer, Samklef says, reconciles with Daddy Freeze
Nigerian Singer, Samklef and Daddy Freeze have ended their squabble 3 years after they mercilessly dragged and blocked each other on social media.
Recall that in 2018, Samklef and Daddy Freeze disagreed over religion.
Trouble started when Freeze criticized a report about the healing of a mentally challenged man at an RCCG church.
Samklef, who was displeased with his critics against men of God, slammed Freeze, telling him that his constant criticism of the church was getting boring.
The exchange heated up, with Freeze telling Samklef his career was dead which led to the singer calling him a “fake ass oyinbo” and his followers “mumu Satan followers”.
What Daddy Freeze said about Sound Sultan after his death
Following the development, they later blocked and unfollowed each other on all their social media platforms.
However, Samklef took to his Instagram account on Sunday to reach out to Daddy Freeze, stating that he can now see “clearly”.
He said most religious leaders are “419” and Freeze was right all along.
“I was blind and ignorant but now I understand and can see clearly.
“Everything Daddy Freeze has been saying is the truth. 90 percent of the so called Nigerian men of God are fraudsters.
“It’s your faith that makes you whole so they collect money for miracles that happens through you.

In his response, Freeze acknowledged his acceptance and admitted he should have been patient with Samklef at the time.

T.B Joshua: Are you true Christians – Daddy Freeze questions top pastors over funeral turnout
Popular On-Air Personality, OAP, Daddy Freeze, has slammed top Nigerian pastors for not attending the funeral of the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Late Prophet T.B. Joshua.
The deceased clergyman died on June 5 and was buried on Friday, July 9.
We had reported that top pastors, church owners and religious leaders in Nigeria were conspicuously missing during the burial of the late Prophet.
It was also observed that the only notable clergyman who attended his funeral was the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria CAN, Lagos state chapter, Rt. Rev. S.T.V Adegbite.
Reacting, Freeze in a video via his social media account expressed his disappointment in top Nigerian pastors who failed to identify with the deceased prophet even in death.
He stated that no matter what may have transpired among them when he was alive, they should have had a forgiving heart and attended his funeral.
“Prophet T.B Joshua has been laid to rest. May his soul rest in peace.
“However, the turnout of Christians especially top Nigerian pastors who attended this man’s funeral makes me worry.
“If we truly are Christians, every church should have sent a delegation.
“I must say I am so disappointed in all these pastors because they have not shown a legacy of love. So, none of them could fly their private jets and attend the funeral?
“If you ask me and you expect me to be honest, I am entirely disappointed in all the big daddies that we have.
“If they behave like this, how are we the children going to behave? You people have turned gods of men.
“I’m sure they don’t understand the gravity of their actions, especially these ones we call our daddies,” he said.
