Bishop Obinim: I Have 20 Houses, 8 Range Rovers, 5 Infinity SUVs, 3 Chryslers & the Car I Use is “AUTOBIOGRAPHY” Which is Bullet Proof Too

Angel Bishop Obinim who was granted bail yesterday after he was kept behind bars for two nights, for allegedly defrauding one Bismark Kusi has said he’s rich enough, so what would make him want to defraud another.
According to Obinin, God has blessed him with a lot of material wealth–of course we cannot say the same about his followers, who continue to dry their pockets to fill his bank accounts.
Obinim is reported to have said in an interview: “I have more than 20 houses given to me by Jesus Christ. I had about eight Range Rover cars which I gifted to my pastors. I had five Infinity SUVs and three Chryslers which I also gifted to my pastors because my car is ‘AUTOBIOGRAPHY’, meaning the car’s brain power is superior to that of a human being. If you cross that car, it stops automatically, and its door is not slammed, it shuts by itself. It is also bulletproof.”

So where did Obinim get the money from to buy all these things?

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp row over divorce donations

Amber Heard has demanded that Johnny Depp double the amount that is paid to charity following their divorce settlement.
She recently pledged to donate the $7m (£5.3m) settlement to two charities for abused women and ill children.
But he has begun to donate the money directly in her name, instead of giving it to her first, leading her to accuse him of trying to reduce his total bill.
She said he must now "honour the full amount by donating $14m to charity". On Thursday, the Pirates of the Caribbean star revealed he had paid the first instalments of the original $7m sum to the charities "in the name of Amber Heard". 'We insist on $14m'Her spokeswoman responded in a statement: "Amber Heard appreciates Johnny Depp's novel interest in supporting two of her favourite charities, the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) for domestic violence and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. This is great and unexpected news.

Richard Branson says he's happy to be alive after a harrowing bike crash earlier this week.The outspoken billionaire behind Virgin Group said his life flashed before his eyes as he was launched off his bike while cycling on the British Virgin Islands. Branson said he was heading down a hill when his bike hit a speed bump, throwing him into the air. 
"I really thought I was going to die," he said in an online blog post. "Fortunately my shoulder and cheek took the brunt of the impact, and I was wearing a helmet that saved my life."
He suffered a cracked cheek and some torn ligaments, he said. The British entrepreneur posted photos of his bruised and bloody face.

Strange Coffin Causes Stir

A strange miniature coffin has been found in a community cemetery at Kojokessekrom, near Drobo in the Jaman North District of the Brong Ahafo Region in early hours of Wednesday.
The small coffin was found on the tomb of a toddler, who was buried some three months ago.
Parents of the child disclosed that they did not place any coffin on the tomb of the deceased, adding that anybody was asked to do that on their behalf.

According to them, infants below eight months are not buried in coffins per the traditions.
They said it was strange for them to discover a coffin on the tomb of the deceased after three months.
The chief of the town, Nana Bafour Baah and some community members, who were also shocked, thronged the cemetery to assess the situation.
Initially, they thought that the body of the dead child had been exhumed and the coffin placed there for ritual purposes but upon careful examination, they realized that the grave was intact.
Nothing was found in the small coffin when it was op…

Montie FM’s Mugabe ‘Promoted’

The reprehensible comments that sent Alistair Nelson, Godwin Ako Gunn, Salifu Maase to prison were roundly condemned by many and they themselves conceded were regrettable and unfortunate.

After a month of seclusion from a normal lifestyle, the three contemnors, who were hitherto to serve four months jail term but for a presidential remission, were given a rapturous welcome back home on Friday.

They were first sent to the Nsawam Medium Security Prison on July 27, 2016 before being moved to Akuse Prison later in August. Most of their fans and supporters who thronged the premises of Radio Gold to receive them felt the three were treated unfairly.

Salifu Maase, also known as ‘Mugabe’ who hosted the two on Montie FM when those contemptuous comments that threatened the lives of Supreme Court judges were made is set for a new accolade.

On his programme, Pampaso, Mugabe was regarded as the Commander of the Airwaves. His counsel, Godwin Edudzi Tamakloe, who felt he was charting a goo…

Zimbabwe police tear gas anti-Mugabe protesters

Riot police in Zimbabwe once again fired tear gas, beat up protesters and blocked off the site of an opposition rally in Harare, the latest in a string of demonstrations to hit the country.
Friday's rally, which was authorised by a court, was to demand electoral reforms before 2018 when 92-year-old President Robert Mugabe, who has ruled the southern African country for decades, will seek re-election.
"Opposition supporters at the capital Harare have blocked some of the main streets using anything they could find," said Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa, reporting from Harare.

"The police have responded by firing tear gas and water cannons at them."
 Demonstrators fought back by throwing stones at police, while some set tyres ablaze and others pulled down the sign for a street named after Mugabe.
Some people caught up in the melee, including children going to an agricultural show nearby, ran for shelter in the magistrate's court building, while riot police …

Somalia: Al-Shabab gunmen attack beach restaurant

At least six people have been killed after al-Shabab fighters attacked a beach restaurant in the capital Mogadishu with a car bomb before entering into a gunfight with security forces, according to police and the group.
"A car bomb exploded at Banadir beach restaurant at Lido beach and there is exchange of gunfire. We have no other details so far," Major Ahmed Ibrahim, a police officer, told Reuters news agency on Thursday. The al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab group claimed responsibility for the attack.
"We attacked the Banadir beach restaurant and now our fighters are fighting inside it," Abdiasis Abu Musab, its military operation spokesman, told Reuters.

The Associated Press news agency reported that a car bomber had prematurely detonated an explosives-laden vehicle near the new Turkish embassy compound in the capital, according to a Somali police officer.
Al-Shabab has carried out a series of deadly attacks in Somalia to try to topple the Western-backed government…

Italy quake: Emergency declared as hopes for more survivors fade

Italy has declared a state of emergency in the regions worst hit by Wednesday's earthquake as hopes of finding more survivors fade.
Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has pledged €50m (£42m) in funds for rebuilding.
At least 267 people are now known to have died and 400 were injured. Teams have continued to search the rubble of toppled buildings for a second night.
However, hundreds of aftershocks have hampered the efforts of the 5,000 rescuers.
Another magnitude-4.7 tremor struck early on Friday.
In addition to the funds, Mr Renzi cancelled taxes for residents and announced a new initiative, "Italian Homes", to tackle criticism over shoddy construction.
But he also said that it was "absurd" to think that Italy could build completely quake-proof buildings.

It follows criticism in the Italian press over building standards in high-risk areas. Some of the buildings that collapsed had recently been renovated.
Historic towns do not have to conform to anti-quake building re…

Montie 3 go home today

The Montie FM radio presenter and two panelists who were jailed for contempt will today be released from prison after serving just one month of their four-month jail term.

This is after President John Mahama granted them a pardon upon the advice of the Council of State.

A statement announcing the remission to the three said: “The President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama has, in consultation with the Council of State and in exercise of his constitutional powers under Article 72 of the Constitution, remitted the remaining prison sentence imposed on three persons: Salifu Maase (alias Mugabe), Alistair Nelson and Ako Gunn who were sentenced to 4 months imprisonment and a fine of GH¢10,000.00 each for contempt of court. The remission is effective 26th August 2016”.

The move, has however, been met with heavy criticisms with many accusing the Council of State of endorsing recklessness.

Speaking to Starr News, Nana Kesse said the three contemnors deserved m…
