Resurrection Miracle: Pastor Alph Lukau Apologizes, Says The Man Never Died (watch video)

Alleluia Ministries pastor, Alph Lukau, who is said to have resurrected a man who was in a coffin at the weekend, has said he regrets the incident as the man was already alive when he arrived at the church.

While speaking during a radio interview on Wednesday evening, Lukau said he was busy with a sermon on Sunday when he was interrupted and told that a person in a coffin had been brought to the church.

"Before entering the premises of the church, the coffin began to shake, meaning the person was alive. I am really sorry for the misrepresentation of facts, the man was not dead and has never been in the mortuary as we earlier said," Lukau explained.

When asked by the host why the man had been brought to the church in the first place, Lukau said: "I am not sure if I can make a statement that he was brought to me.

We are the house of God and I'm just a pastor serving in the house of the Lord. But I am sorry that we didn't tell people the truth in the first place", he added.

Lukau noted that the man was brought to the church by his family, who believed that something would happen if he was prayed for. He added that further questions about why the man was brought to the church would be better answered by the man'sfamily.

"I think that they brought the person to church because they believed that God had the ability to resurrect the person, but still our brother was a live even before they brought him to church and we really apologize for not telling the truth in the first place," he said.

  • Nigerian Army Parade 11 NYSC Corps Members For Rigging Election In Rivers

About 11 members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have been paraded by the Nigerian army in River State for allegedly committing various electoral offences during last weekend's Presidential and National Assembly elections.

They were paraded yesterday by officers of the 6 Division, Nigerian Army, in Port-Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.
The corps members were said to have been arrested in a hotel in Gokana Local Government Area of the State filling result sheets in favour of a political party during the elections.
The spokesman of the Division, Aminu Illiyasu, while parading the suspects at the 6 Division Headquarters, said preliminary investigations revealed that the suspects were moved from the polling units to a hotel to rig the elections in favour of a political party.
He said items recovered from the hotel include 34 ballots boxes loaded with ballot papers, three card readers, 10 bags containing electoral materials and Toyota Hiace bus with registration Number Lagos EQ171KRD.
However, a corp member, Mr. Ewitimi Jimicoal, who spoke on behalf of other colleagues, told reporters that they were whisked away under gun point by some men and were forced to fill result sheets by the political thugs.
According to him, 
"On Saturday after the Presidential and National Assembly elections, we heard sporadic gunshots at the polling units and immediately, some boys and some community men forced us into a bus and drove us to an unknown location.

"Right there at the place, the boys forced us to forge the result in favour of a political party at gunpoint and out of fear we did so, and while we were still surrounded with guns, the army came and arrested us".
Also, paraded was a middle aged man, Gogo Meshach, and 42 others, including officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) who were arrested with 142 Permanent Voters Card (PVC), and 42 pages of voters list.
The suspects have been handed over to the State Police Command for further investigations and possible prosecution.

  • Human Rights Lawyer Threatenes To Sue INEC Over The Use Of NYSC members To Conduct Elections

A Human Rights Lawyer, Dr Kayode Ajulo, has threatened to sue the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the use of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members to conduct elections.

Ajulo, who made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Abuja, said that the use of corps members by INEC was against the law, adding that the law setting up the scheme frowned against it and must be stopped forthwith.

He said that he would sue the electoral umpire if the use of corps members were not stopped.

The human rights lawyer said this against the backdrop of reported killings of corps members in some parts of the country during the Feb. 23, Presidential and National Assembly elections.

He decried the numbers of corps members who died during the exercise, adding that if those corps members were from those localities, they would not have been killed.

He said;
"If there is an area you want me to advise INEC, is to stop using the NYSC members, particularly the youth corps member that do not even know the terrain. 
"You can see the number of youth corps members that died and I believe if those corps members were from those localities they would not have been slaughtered. 
"If actually, INEC needs youths to help as ad hoc staff, nothing stops INEC from recruiting at the outset people within the locality."

  • I regretted ever working for INEC, as my life was put in danger - NYSC member Laments

- I was forced to hand over ballot papers to persons who thumb-printed the papers for a particular party.
A male member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Ashimom Msuguhter, who also served as an ad hoc official of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), in Nasarawa state has discredited the election that took place at his unit on Saturday Msuguhter said that out of 900 registered voters at the polling unit, the card readers were able to authenticate only 15 persons, while all the others voted without being accredited.

The corps member said in a Facebook post that he was forced to hand over ballot papers to persons who thumb-printed the papers for a particular party.

He said he regretted ever working for INEC, as his life was put in danger.
Msuguhter said;
"This is the last time I'd be doing this bullsh** INEC ad-hoc nonsense. 
"Having disenfranchised myself in the name of ad-hoc staff, I was almost thoroughly beaten. I was cowed into submitting the bulk of ballot papers for mass thumb-printing. 
"Well, I filled the incident form and I hope the result would be cancelled. 
"I'm just angry with everything, most especially for getting involved in the first place. No one forced me, actually. 
"First, this card reader rubbish should be quashed in subsequent elections. The whole aim has been defeated. 
"Out of about 900 registered voters in my unit, the card reader could authenticate only 15. The rest had to do manual accreditation, which opened more room for rigging. Quite sad!"
While calling on the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, to resign, the corps member said the election of Saturday was not as good as that of 2015, which was superintended by Prof. Attahiru Jega.

He said rural areas are known for rigging and this has continued to undermine Nigeria's democracy.
The corps member said;
 "This Prof. Mahmood has to resign immediately after this elections and apologise to Nigerians. The extra one week he got did not prove anything different. In fact, he's made Jega's INEC much more coveted. 
"As of 11am, we had not seen materials, the people were already agitated, thinking we were compromised… They started threatening to descend on us… Luckily, we escaped that. 
"Because we reported late at the polling unit, we were forced to extend voting time till around 7.30pm. 
"When it was dark, these people requested for the remaining ballot papers, that is the tradition of the polling unit not to return ballot papers to INEC… Before we knew it, the atmosphere became very tense. 
"The short of it is that we allowed them to do their wish, but I pray the result is cancelled. 
"The fact is, most of the rigging is done in the rural areas. There, there is no electoral law, anything goes… Party agents do the voting for people and you don’t dare talk. 
"We must penetrate the grassroots if we must overcome this plague. 
"I'm glad I returned safely."
