According to reports, the distraught wife of the pastor, Mrs Kudirat Ibrahim, said on a fateful day, her husband was fasting.

An aunt of the deceased pastor, Mrs Justina Alebiosu, who confirmed the incident, alleged that it was a clear case of hired assassination.

“Even before they killed him, they showed him his picture to identify if he was actually the right person they came for. His death was an unfortunate one. We have lost a gentleman. It was true we were born as Muslims, but we converted to Christianity. My thinking is that my brother had business transaction with someone.

lions kill 3 children

Lions have killed three children who had gone to look for missing cattle in northern Tanzania’s Ngorongoro wildlife reserve, police said in a statement on Thursday.

 

The children – aged between nine and 11 – went looking for the livestock just after they had returned from school, Arusha police chief Justine Masejo is quoted by the AFP news agency as saying.

 

“That is when the lions attacked and killed three children while injuring one,” he said.

 

“I would like to urge the nomadic communities around the reserved areas to take precautions against fierce animals especially when they task their children to take care of the livestock. That will help to protect the children and their families.”

Ngorongoro, and other wildlife reserves and national parks, are protected areas but the authorities allow Maasai people to live there and raise cattle.

There have been cases of humans and wildlife coming into conflict before, AFP reports.

Thirty-six lions had to be relocated from the Serengeti National Park, also in northern Tanzania, after they attacked humans and cattle.

We guess what Yvonne Nelson was trying to say is that depending on waist trainers alone and slimming tea to get a snatched body isn’t possible but rather it’s either you got it from your mother since birth, or a doctor does it for you, or you go to the gym.
