I am contented. It’s all about contentment. When you are contented and you’re worth what God says you are, and you have what God says you have, and you can do what God says you can do, what else again?
When you’re limited in certain areas and you see someone do what you would like to do, definitely envy and jealousy set in. When I see someone do what I would like to do, I see it as grace. It is by emulating God that you can do what you see someone doing that you would like to do. When people attack me, I pray for them because I know that what they attack me for is what they would like to do but they cannot do it.”
Asked about how he heals people by merely touching them and praying for them, he said:
“I am not the one that heals. I am not the one doing what I am doing.
Joshua, a primary school graduate, who was born in a poverty stricken family in Arigidi, an impoverished village in Nigeria’s western State of Ondo, has gone from working in a poultry farm in Lagos to being the toast of many world leaders in just about two decades.
Every week, at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, a couple of private jets that bring wealthy and powerful Africans to T.B. Joshua’s church land and many followers arrive on many other airlines, wearing Emmanuel TV T-shirts.
A 40-year-old man, Anthony Bankole, on Monday committed suicide in Ibadan by hanging himself at his building site at Olodo area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
A family source told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that Bankole left his rented apartment at Abayomi area of the metropolis at about 5.49 a.m claiming he was going to use the Automated Teller Machine (ATM).
The source, however, said that shortly after he left, he sent him a text message to inform him of his intention to kill himself.
“I never had an idea that he was going to kill himself because his wife had just died on Saturday. I even gave him money for his transport fare and told him not to stay out long. He lost his wife on Saturday and she is still in the mortuary; so I thought he needed money to arrange for her burial,” he said.
NAN reports that Bankole’s wife, Kemi, who operated a business centre at the University College Hospital (UCH), died on Saturday.
A neighbour also told NAN that the couple had a fight which led to the death of the woman.
The neighbour said the wife was rushed to UCH while convulsing, but died immediately she arrived at the hospital.
“We heard him shouting for help around 2 a.m. on Saturday and with the help of another neighbour, she was rushed to the hospital. Meanwhile, she was already foaming from the mouth,” he said.
The Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Mr Diran Fijabi, confirmed the incident to NAN, saying it was a suicide case.
The corpse had been deposited at the mortuary of Adeoyo Hospital, Yemetu, Ibadan.

Breaking News: (PHOTO) Co-Pilot Hijacks Ethiopian Airlines Aircraft, Forces It to Land in Switzerland
A hijacked Ethiopian Airlines jet (in the picture) landed safely in Geneva after the co-pilot allegedly seized control of the aircraft and requested asylum in Switzerland in the early hours of February 17, 2014, Monday.
According to multiple news reports, the co-pilot took control of the Boeing 767-300, while the pilot was in the bathroom.
All the 193 passengers are reportedly safe and were seen leaving the aircraft with their hands on their necks before boarding a bus.
Flight 702 had been en route to Rome from Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, when it sent out transponder code 7500, an alarm signal that usually indicates hijacking.
The plane had been flying over Sudan when it sent out the signal. It reached Geneva with just 20 minutes of fuel left, circling the airport several times before landing.
According to AirlineReporter, the incident briefly shut down the busy airport and caused the cancelation of some flights as incoming aircraft were diverted to other airports.
“Ethiopian Airlines flight ET-702 on scheduled service departing from Addis Ababa on 17 February 2014 at 00:30 (local time) scheduled to arrive in Rome at 04:40 (local time) was forced to proceed to Geneva Airport,” the airline said in a statement.
In its first reports, the airline did not say whether the plane had been hijacked nor did it offer a reason for the diversion.
A young man believed to be between 17-20 years of age lost his life on Sunday after he was electrocuted by a Power Holding Company of Nigeria transformer which he was trying to vandalise.
His lifeless body which had already turned black was found inside the transformer in the Kpakungu area of Minna, Niger state.
His body was found after residents sort to find out what was causing the offensive odour in the neighbourhood. The search party found the decomposed body with a rubber slippers, which he used to pad his two arms, apparently to avoid being electrocuted, as he crawled through the transformer.
According to some of the residents, vandals have made life unbearable for them as the transformer always broke down due to their criminal activities.
A resident said, “Every day is for the thief but one day is for the house owner. They have been coming to steal from the transformer but today God don catch them.”
The Niger State Police Public Relations Officer, Richard Oguche, could not be reached for comments.
Thirty-six-year-old Jonathan Nsirim is not your usual armed robbery suspect. His melodious voice, well built physique and ability to play almost any musical instrument is enough to endear him to any audience.
Investigations by the police Special Anti-Robbery Squad, however, revealed that although the musician performed at weddings during the day time, he was robbing banks at night.
Police authorities said that the indigene of Imo State belonged to a gang, which specialises in breaking and stealing from banks’ Automated Teller Machines.
It was alleged that the gang was responsible for an ATM robbery in November 2013 that left three policemen dead at the Ayobo branch of Access Bank.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Umar Manko, identified the other members of the gang as Daniel Onuoha, Eyo Bassey, Tairu Kareem, Tajudeen Dosunmu, Isiah Willie and Confidence Saviour.
The musician said it was his passion for music coupled with his desire to give his family a better life that pushed him to crime.
He said although he charged N50, 000 to perform at events, the money was not regular and he often had to share the pay with other members of his band.
He said, “I sing all genres of music and I even have my own band known as Masterpiece Band. I am also a professional dancer; my stage name is Original. I perform at weddings, night clubs and other social gatherings. Sometime in 2012, I went to Beach Land Estate, Apapa to perform at a function. That was where I met Confidence and we exchanged telephone numbers.
“Two weeks later, he called me for a meeting and asked me what I wanted most in life, I said I wanted my music career to succeed and I needed money to buy music instruments. He said he would get me out of poverty.
“He said we would be robbing bank ATMs but no one would get killed. He gave me two days to think about the deal but warned me that once I joined, I would not be allowed to leave. I accepted the deal because I needed to buy the instruments and Confidence introduced me to the leader, Onuoha.”
Narrating how the gang operated, Nsirim said after monitoring a bank for a few days, they would plan how to break into it.
He said on the night of any operation, Onuoha, Confidence and Bassey would enter the banks premises as customers who wanted to withdraw from ATM, point their guns at the security guards and then tie them up.
He said after the guards had been subdued, he would carry gas cylinders into the bank, while the welder would burn the ATM and force it open
He said, “During the first robbery on one night, Onuoha pretended that he wanted to withdraw money from a bank on Malu Road, Ajegunle. On getting inside, they tied up the security guards and I carried a gas cylinder into the bank premises and we burnt the ATM. My share was N250, 000.
“We robbed another bank at Idimu, my share was N350, 000. We also robbed a filling station around LASU-Igando Road. I was able to use my share to buy musical instruments since that was why I took to robbery in the first place. After buying instruments, I used the remainder to take care of my wife and two kids
“The last robbery was at a bank in Ayobo. We hid in a nearby bush, waiting for Onuoha, Confidence and Bassey, who had entered the bank, to give us a signal as usual.
“But we heard gunshots and we all fled. It was after I was arrested that I was informed that three policemen were killed. I did not carry any gun; I cannot kill a human being, God forbid.”
