#BBNaija: Tacha breaks silence after her disqualification - Read full statement

In a post shared on her Instagram page this morning, Tacha stated that it was never her intention to leave the Big Brother house disqualified. She said she unfortunately allowed her weakness play against her strength.

She went on to apologise for her action. Read her post below

Dear Titans,
Words cannot readily express how much your love and acceptance means to me at this point. Even my imperfection could not sway your support.

Coming out of the Big Brother House disqualified was never my intention. Unfortunately, my weakness played against my strength and cut short what should have been a grand ending, with or without the prize.

I sincerely apologize for every action on my part that led to this point and I take full responsibility for it all.
I am an adult and ought to be in control of my emotions, but I'm human and I failed time and again. Please forgive me. I sincerely wanted to make it, at least to the 99th day.

The fight to be seen and heard takes its toll on everyone of us irrespective of where, when or how it comes. What counts is what we make out of a seemingly ugly situation.
I know I need to work on my emotional health... That's a fact as I have become conscious of it now. Being on this show has shown me that, I am not just a work in progress but I have the chance to become a better me on all fronts, if I give myself the chance to heal.
And this I promise to give due diligence.

So for what you have been to me, I heard some of you even cried and held vigil for me. I cannot thank you enough. You all became my mother, friends and family and this means so much to me right now. Your prayers, time and resources spent to push me through to this point cannot be quantified in any form, but i sincerely thank you from the depth of my heart.

Against the odds, you all are the reason why I stand and remain hopeful that everything will fall into place, that I can make it through this storm and come out on the sunny side in time.

My social media official handles are open and I can be reached there for now.

Thank you Titans, Thank you to everyone who supported me privately and openly, Thank you Africa, Thank you Nigeria, THANK YOU WORLD!
I saved the best for last. Thank you to the organizers of Big Brother Nigeria for this platform, it may not have ended as I hoped and wanted, but it gave me the opportunity to rise. It was worth it and for this reason, I am grateful.
Biggie, @bigbronaija Thank you!

Update: Navy Commander’s murder was planned in a church

One of the suspects arrested over the murder of the Commandant of the Armed Forces Command and Staff College Secondary School in Jaji, Navy Commander Oluyemisi Ogundana, allegedly planned the attack in a church.

The suspect from Kogi state identified as Bernard Simon, killed Ogundana after she removed him as the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Secretary for alleged illegal practices. He was reportedly staying at a church at the time of the attack after being evicted from his apartment by his landlady who wasn't pleased with his behaviour.

“He is the General Secretary of the church and when his landlady sent him packing, he moved his things to the church. He was actually staying in the church at the time he planned and killed her. It is suspected that he killed her on Friday night.

“He tore her net to gain entry into the passage and then to her garage. It is suspected he ambushed her at the garage because that place is inner garage and a bit dark,” a source told The Nation.

Bernard returned to the deceased's apartment to steal her laptop, money and other valuables after disposing her mutilated body in a well near a church located in the cantonment with the help of his nephew Ibrahim Momoh. Some of the items were recovered from his wife who confessed to getting them from the arrested suspects.

“After they killed her, they went away with her car but the man came back to her apartment on Saturday and ransacked it. He was looking for the original vehicle documents to ease the sale but it seems he could not get it. Then, he went and got two soldiers to assure buyers that the vehicle was not stolen and it was genuine.

“The soldiers claimed that they did not know the vehicle belonged to the commander and that they did not know anything had happened to her. They have been arrested by the military police because what they did was even illegal,” another source said.

Woman bags 13 years in jail after she cut off her boyfriend's penis because he shared their sex tape

A woman has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for cutting off her boyfriend's penis during sex because he shared their sex tapes with friends.

Brenda Barattini, 28,  chopped off the penis of Sergio Fernandez, 42, two years ago and was recently found guilty of attempted murder and sentenced to 13 years behind bars.

The accountant confessed she had planned the attack on November 25, 2017, but said she had not intended to kill her former boyfriend.

Her trial in Cordoba, Argentina, heard how Barattini cut through 90 per cent of musician Sergio’s penis with garden shears after blindfolding him and performing a sex act on him.

She told the court she had planned to carry out revenge on her then-boyfriend because he had been sharing X-rated pictures and videos of her, claiming he treated her like a "trophy".

She told a jury of four men and four women: "It violated my privacy, my life and my career."

Narrating how he was attacked, Sergio told the court: "After she put the blindfold on she told me I had to guess where she was touching me.

"She also wanted to tie me up but I didn’t let her. She began to practice oral sex on me. I suddenly felt something. She wanted to kill me in that second."

Sergio was rescued by neighbours and spent eight days in a coma.

After her arrest, Barattini initially claimed she had been defending herself from a sexual assault by Sergio. She later changed her story and admitted she had carried out the attack in revenge.

Barattini is expected to appeal the sentence at a later date. Defence lawyer Lucas de Olmos claims the decision of the court was "unheard of" in Argentina.

The lawyer said: "No-one has ever been convicted in this country of attempted murder for a penis wound."

Pastor Fatoyinbo never raped Busola Dakolo - COZA leadership release official statement on rape allegation

The leadership of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), have released an official statement reacting to the rape allegation against their senior pastor, Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo, by Busola Dakolo, wife of singer Timi Dakolo. Busola in a tell-all interview released in June, acccused Fatoyinbo of raping her when she was a teenager attending his church in Ilorin, Fatoyinbo has since denied the allegation.

In a statement issued in Abuja by the Executive Senior Assistant to the Senior Pastor of COZA, Ademola Adetuberu, today Saturday September 21st, COZA said that Fatoyinbo never raped Busola.

“We see this ugly development fuelled by envy and sheer jealousy as an unnecessary distraction and a fight from the pit of hell against the ministry that God gave Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo, as well as a declaration of war against the Church of Christ to which COZA is a flourishing branch under God’s grace.

“As a result of the recent unprovoked satanic campaign of calumny orchestrated against the leadership and members of our church, Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) by agents of darkness, the church would like to break its silence and clear certain misconception and misinformation being churned out in order to misguide members of the church, public and relevant authorities that we do not support rape.

We stand with anyone who has been a victim of rape. We stand by our Founding and Senior Pastor, Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo, who has been at the receiving end of organized blackmail and all sorts of attacks because of his innocence and we are sure that our faithful and unfailing God will vindicate him very soon.

“As for Busola Dakolo, justice will soon be served. We would like to, again, for the record reiterate that our Senior Pastor, Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo, has never had anything personal to do with her. Busola was not raped by Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo and she had never been in a relationship with him either.

“We are not unaware that certain pastors that felt threatened by the unprecedented growth of COZA and the grace of God upon His Servant are after some of our members, just making every effort to cash in on the attack against God’s servant. There was nothing they had not done behind the scene until this rape scandal. They are accusing our Pastor of snatching their members. Some are even asking why he couldn’t remain in Ilorin. Our focus is the Kingdom of God and winning souls for Christ. COZA is home to those who have sold out to Jesus. At COZA, we believe that every sent servant of God has his or her harvest field given to him or her by God and not by poaching souls or believers of another ministry.

Those sponsoring these evils to desist however if they do not, the God of vengeance will visit them. They should let Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo continue freely with his divine mandate that our Lord Jesus Christ gave him. It is ungodly and sinful to be used by satan against the anointed.”
