In his speech on Sunday, the bishop also announced that a state-of-the art private aircraft hanger that can accommodate five jets at a time is being built for his jets near the international wing of Murtala Mohammed International Airport.

Apart from this latest acquisition, the bishop has a Gulfstream 1 which he acquired in 1996. A Gulfstream 4 and a Challenger Aircraft.

When Encomium contacted the spokesperson for the church, Mr William, he confirmed the story. "Yes, Bishop announced the purchase of a jet on Sunday" He said.

Jada Pinkett explains why she encourages her children's showbiz aspirations...

From The Daily Mail

Now it isn’t as if the Smiths — who earned £20 million between them last year alone —are short of a bob or two. So why put their children in the spotlight? 
‘That’s the thing that’s difficult for people to understand,’ Jada says. ‘This isn’t about fame or money. They were still going to have their trials because of who their parents are. As much as I wish I could figure out a way I could protect my children, they have their destiny. I’m not going to put brakes on that out of fear.’

"My recent arrest in Abuja was a set up" - Jim Iyke

"I was driving one of my posh rides in Abuja when all of a sudden these men dressed in different uniforms, army, police and even a colour that I don't even recognize just swooped on me and asked me to get down from my car. I did that and then I was told I am not authorized to have tinted glass, that it's against the law, so they proceeded to remove the tint. But all of a sudden this set of people arrived with some huge cameras I have never seen before and started recording the scene. That was when I got upset and drove away. In fact I think it was just a set up because I don't know how those people got to know what was happening at the time and they came with their cameras like it was a movie scene." Jim Iyke to Vivian Onuorah of City People Magazine.

The incident happened on Friday April 1st around 2pm around Ojota, Lagos. And according to an eyewitness (who sent in the photo), Prince Jide Kosoko mistakenly rammed into a passerby, although he didn't injure the man. Then the passerby picked up an object and hit Jide Kosoko's four wheel drive. Mr Kosoko came out of his car and held onto the man. But before it could become a fight, a small crowd gathered and separated the two men.

Jide Kosoko eventually had to part with some cash to appease the onlookers who recognised him and started hailing him.

I'm being sued...

OK, so I received a call and a letter from a few lawyers very early this morning saying that I'm being sued for defamation of character, for a story and comment I allowed on this blog recently. It was mostly for the comments. I have since taken the post down but unfortunately they have a printed/cached copy of everything that was written which they plan to tender in court.

I'm scared out of my mind because I've never been in this kind of trouble before. But my lawyer, who I just came off the phone with says they don't have a case. Is he correct? Can I beat this?

According to the letter, the case is before an Ikeja High Court...
