The founder and spiritual leader at INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele (JP), has warned that the decision by governors of Southwest Nigeria to establish a security outfit for the region called Amotekun, was a risky one.
The popular seer, during a Sunday service message at his church headquarters in Lagos, said the governors have set the tone for those who would exploit their good intention for fanatical purposes.
“Southwest governors are creating internal terrorists. The governors must be careful,” Ayodele cautioned, “so that Amotekun does not become another terror group in the Southwest region through those who might want to use it for purposes other than solving people’s security challenges.”
The cleric, at the service, recalled some of his fulfilled prophecies for the new year. They include his warning to the transport union against impending crisis. Ayodele had mid December 2019, warned that the Lagos NURTW leader, MC Oluomo, “should put the house in order because NURTW will experience serious crisis and violence next year.”
On January 12, 2020, the servant of God also asked for rain “within seven days”. The cleric said “whether the weather likes or not, I’m speaking to God as His servant, let there be rain within seven days. Prophets in the Bible prayed, they asked for signs and you listened to them. I stand in that gap and ask for signs for your children; my Lord, answer us with rain. Lord, show us that you are with us in 2020.”
On the evening of Monday, 13th of January, heavy downpour was reported in major cities of the country.
On January 8. Primate Ayodele recalled his November 2019 forewarning that “the first three weeks of the new year would be terrible, except God hears our prayers.”
“America has never experienced earthquake,” said the prophet, “but this year, I foresee America experiencing earthquake for the first time. I speak as servant of God.” Ayodele, who warned on January 7th that, between 2020 and 2022, there will be a big event that would shake the world, noted that prophecy, is the real security report as it is a message that comes straight from God, “but because governments do not understand prophecy or they choose to be stubborn about it, they do not regard it.”
Some of Primate Ayodele’s recent prophecies that have come to pass include the Ukranian plane crash in Iran, the recent attack on churches and Christians, the Iran and America crisis, the renewed attacks on soldiers by the Boko Haram, and many more.

Labour minister, Keyamo advises daughter on secrets of marital bliss
The honourable Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo SAN has advised one of his blood relations who got married over the weekend on what it takes to survive marital squabbles.
The Minister disclosed this at the marriage ceremony of his cousin, Maryam Keyamo, who grew up under his tutelage. The lucky bride, Maryam was given in marriage to Desmond Chima, a young and successful media entrepreneur and manager of popular music superstar, Harrysong.
The marriage between the duo has been a fanfare of a sort kicking off in Warri, Delta State with a traditional ceremony before the white wedding was held at the Decorum events centre, Oregun, Ikeja Lagos last Saturday, November 23rd, 2019.
The Minister who attended the wedding in capacity of the Chairman and bride’s ‘father’ bluntly advised the young lady on the secrets of marital bliss, “you have to make sure you submit all to your husband, total submission and respect are some of the basic rules to a lasting marriage”, the Minister warned.
Buttressing his point, the Senior Advocate of Nigeria reminded the newly-wed about their elderly siblings whose marriages have been waxing stronger and why it has been so, “I could remember at a time, long ago before the advent of GSM, my sister left her husband’s house in Port-Harcourt and visited us in Warri, on the second day, my father asked for the letter that authorized her for the visit and when she couldn’t produce it, he compelled her to go back immediately and ever since, she never repeated such strange visit, today she’s been married, I think for 18 years and same with all of them”.
So, Maryam, don’t come and tell me your problems, stay in your husband’s house and I pray God in His infinite mercies continue to bless the union.
On a lighter mood, the Minister took a jibe at the groom, Desmond Chima whom he accused of “stealing” his daughter while on a business mission to his Law Chambers, “I was surprised to see Desmond who was a client still coming around even after the case was over, so I asked them one day, what’s Desmond still looking for here, only to find out he has actually ‘stole’ my daughter”.
On a final note, the Minister advised the groom never to raise his hands on his wife, the worst thing any man can do is to beat his wife, please don’t do it, he told the groom.
