m., I walked into the Rapture Proclaimer Evangelical Church of God founded by popular evangelist, Funmilayo Adebayo nicknamed Mummy GO (General Overseer) on social media.The internet and mobile networks are cut off, but that doesn't stop rallies against the military from springing up once again.For weeks, Mummy GO has become social media sensation with many online users turning her hell-threatening sermons into memes circulated online.By Sun, 09 Jan 2022 02:41:26 GMT M any law firms were established in the pre-independence and post-independence Nigeria, but only a handful survived till this day.On getting to the church located in the Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos State, I met a group of people chanting “Hallelujah!” They were about seven in number.The team is full of top-flight athletes but has yet to win a major competition.Beside them were another seven elderly women praying loudly.It is believed that the Cholera outbreak, which is not far behind, left an indelible mark on the people of Gomo.
I was about to enter the church when a security official who identified himself as Brother Femi said my dress which was some inches above my ankle wasn’t long enough.Convention: APC governors schedule make or mar meeting after Buhari’s warning There were dozens of pioneer law firms, which status this single report could not ascertain.I wasn’t surprised.Brother Femi’s observation was my first confirmation of all that I had seen Mummy GO preached in viral videos.Brother Femi led me to a female usher in the church simply called Sister Bunmi who brought out a carton with several fabrics which had different colours like purple, orange and grey.Molajo, Gabriel Coker, Kehinde Sofala, Dr Nwakanma Okoro, Patrick Balonwu and Ben Nwabueze.I picked one fabric and tied it around my waist to be allowed into the church.However, one may wonder why the about 10,000 population of Gomo residents are forced to depend on just two boreholes as the source of drinking water.
On getting inside the fairly roomy bungalow auditorium, a bell chimed and Sunday School commenced with the classes divided into three segments; Yoruba class for age 40 and above, the English class for teenagers and other adults, and another Yoruba class for age 40 and below.I sat in the class for age 40 and below?? (English or Yoruba class?) with a slim, dark-complexioned lady, who wore a purple top and a very long black skirt as the teacher.Lardner and Professor A.She later identified herself as Mrs George.The topic for the Sunday school class was ‘Devil Like Jesus’.I noticed they all had a Sunday School booklet and not long after, an usher walked up to me to advertise the booklet for N400.O.Our correspondent observed that besides using the water to wash their clothes, bath and other needs, it is also used for ablution, cooking and drinking.
I bought the English version.The class was interactive as Mrs George made every member read from the booklet and give examples.She dwelled on how God is helping Mummy GO despite her many persecutors online.I Egonu and Bayo Kehinde, Mudiaga Odje and Olisa Chukwura.She said many churches don’t preach about hellfire like Mummy GO.Some moments later, I heard the sound of another bell.“Shortly after it subsided, it spread to a nearby Bura Village under Ningi Local Government of Bauchi State.
The three classes collapsed into one with the men moving to the right-hand side of the auditorium and the women occupying the left-hand side.Following his death in 2005, his two sons—Ladi Williams (SAN), and Folarin Williams—managed the firm until the death of the former this year.Read Also My mum not bothered about hellfire memes on social media – Mummy GO’s son Bimpe (before) and (after) The Sunday School session ended with an offering and the Sunday Service started proper with a man asking the congregants to shout the ‘Blood of Jesus’ 21 times.After this, the choir, decked in purple tops and long black skirts, started their ministration.Hymns were recited afterwards and then a man wearing a grey suit mounted the pulpit and led a short prayer session.Speaking on the journey of the firm so far, Abimbola Akinjide-Williams, one of the grandchildren of the late legal luminary, recalled that it has gone through various challenges, but they have continued in the practice, with a new chambers founded out of the former Rotimi Williams Chambers, known as Black Table.There were a few ministers on the platform but Mummy GO was not present.“We were not more than three personnel working at the clinic and it has come back strongly hitting our community.
A source later told me she stopped attending the church, claiming some Internet users were threatening her over her hellfire sermons.I made a rough count of the congregants in the adult church — 57 men and 46 women; all forbidden to wear necklaces, earrings, make-up, and any fashion ornaments.My father did election petitions, my grandfather sat on the committee that drafted the 1979 Constitution, which was amended, as well as the 1999 Constitution amendment.Trousers were also forbidden for ladies while jeans were outlawed for the men.The service was still on when a female minister took over and led another set of heated prayers.She asked us all to go outside the church auditorium to take several positions and pray.The company is bigger and there is a lot more people in Lagos.This is associated with the water we are using.
After the prayers, the offering was collected followed by some announcements, the recitation of the Lord’s Prayer, the benediction and their watchword which goes thus, “For he said unto Moses, I will have mercy upon whom I will have mercy upon, I will have compassion upon who I will have compassion upon, Lord have mercy on me.” Copyright PUNCH.All rights reserved.” She said the law firm had been sustained all these years because of a lot of hard work and specialisation, adding, “The lesson for Nigerian lawyers is that partnerships are relationships between people.This material, and other digital content on this website, may not be reproduced, published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed in whole or in part without prior express written permission from PUNCH.Contact:.“When the boreholes dry up or get faulty, we don’t usually have any other option than to return to the wells or go to the river at the outskirts of the village to fetch water.
