Her death has brought back so many memories of how it all started and I will be looking at how her marriage to Pastor Ituah 14 years ago sparked off controversies that rocked one of the biggest churches in Nigeria, The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG.

Pastor Ighodalo was a pastor in RCCG before he started Trinity House Church with controversies trailing his departure from the church.

He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria and also of the Chartered Institute of Taxation; he is a member of the Nigerian Institute of Management, a Member American Society of Industrial Security, Member American Institute of Management. He sits on the board of several companies, chairing some of them.

He gave his life to Christ in 1993 and was ordained an Assistant Pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in 1995 while in City of David, Victoria Island and full pastor in 2000 as a pastor of RCCG Christ Church, Gbagada. While with the RCCG, he was actively involved in the settling up of International missions, helping to pioneer several RCCG Parishes locally and abroad.

Pastor Ituah Ighodalo became popular while he was a pastor at the Christ Church Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Gbagada. He nurtured it and it became one of the best RCCG parishes in the country. He also became one of the favorite sons of the General overseer, Pastor Adeboye to the consternation of some top pastors who were jealous of his successes. Members of his parish loved him so much that when he was transferred at one time, they protested so much that he was brought back to the church.

His first marriage and remarriage

Ighodalo was earlier married to Lucy-Ann Summer, also a Chartered Accountant like himself. Ighodalo said he married a fellow accountant, Lucy-Ann Summer whom he said he met “while I was going up and down” in 1995.His first marriage was said to have been contracted abroad and when they could not produce any child and he wanted to return back to Nigeria, his wife refused to return to Nigeria to join him. He had been separated from his first wife for many years and the woman was said to have remarried and even have kids with her new husband.

In an interview he granted This Day Newspapers years ago, he disclosed that Ann refused to join him in Nigeria and after much persuasion failed, she left. “Because the expectations from the marriage were not met, she met someone else that met those expectations…,” the pastor added.

After he became born again, he was divorced for about 10 years and alone before he met the beautiful former Miss Lux, Ibidunni Ajayi in 2007.

She was then a Youth Corps member. The courtship lasted over four years, even though he proposed to Ibidunni after 18 months of friendship.

According to the newspaper, Ibidunni and Ituah tied the nuptial knot on 26 February 2007, followed by the traditional wedding three days later in Ibadan, Oyo State.

About a year later after the incident, The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye broke his silence on the whole controversies that surrounded the way Pastor Ituah left RCCG to start his own church.

He said he only disagreed with his spiritual son, pastor Ighodalo on the basis of his doctrine but still loved him very much like a son.

He said in concrete terms that there was never a time he cursed Pastor Ituah Ighodalo like a lot of people were saying at that time. He made it very clear that he does not curse people.

He said Ituah is his son and will remain his son and warned mischief makers to mind their own business. Adeboye said when it happened in apparent reference to the suspension of Ighodalo from RCCG, he said the church rules needed to be followed to the letter, so when he decided to leave, he cannot be stopped.

Adeboye had warned his Pastors during one of the ministers ‘conference of the church held at Redemption Camp before the whole saga that only death can make any pastor of the church re-marry. He said, whosoever wants to divorce can do so if such minister is ready to relinquish all spiritual duties in the church, adding that every member had a right to leave the church if such person cannot abide by the rules and regulations of the church.

Now that his wife, Ibidun is dead, it has brought back so many memories of what transpired back then when their marriage sparked off controversies and outrage in Christendom on the issue of divorce and remarriage. This issue is still subject of hot debate in Christianity till today.

This beautiful woman is gone but LIFE continues! May her soul rest in peace!

14 Warning Signs You Are Dealing with an Evil Person

win 40k and a night with me

Life would be a lot simpler if the evil people dressed in full black attire and smiled creepily like the witches in the stories, and the good people would dress in bright colors with a cherubic smile on their face! But no, life is a synthesis of endless contradictions and people wear masks that are difficult to break.

Evil exists and we don’t need theories to prove that, just a glance at the daily news is enough evidence. Murders, rapes, terrorism and what not! The common thing among all the criminals is their attitude – they do not care what happens to the world as long as their own needs are satisfied. This behavior may be a result of the environment they were brought up in, or as some theorists say the biological component does play a role. Experts reveal that the body releases oxytocin while reacting to something positive. While 95% of people conform to the norm, 5% do not feel the positive vibe.

Some black hearted people seem to make this their life motto. It is difficult to distinguish evil because it looks “normal”; however, if you are associated with such people, you will eventually feel the toxicity and suffering rising. Be aware and let go.

 

1. They are manipulative maniacs

Black hearted people build their lives around one goal and they can go to any extent to achieve it. They do not care what others think or if they are hurting or deceiving someone. They will pursue the path if it suits them. They will manipulate others to get their work done.

 

2. They mislead you

They use gaslighting to sow seeds of doubt in a person’s mind, making them question their own reality. They not only lie but twist the tale to turn your judgment in favor of them. You will inevitably believe them and come to wrong conclusions.

 

3. They are not trustworthy

All their actions are a master scheme to drive you towards their self-centered agenda. You cannot trust someone who will manipulate and mislead you at every step of the way.

 

4. They cannot see the reality

 

Rather, they will not see the reality if it does not correspond with their needs. They will subtly make others believe in their warped vision of life too, to fulfill their demands.

 

5. They always think they are “owed”

Black hearted people believe they are special and that the world is a “wish granting factory.” They think that being themselves is enough and everyone will cater to their needs because they owe them.

 

6. They demand attention

 

They believe the world revolves around them and want to be treated differently because they are worth it. They will demand attention as they feel superior to others, without noticing their flaws.

 

7. They are liars

They are compulsive liars and simply cannot speak the truth as it will crack their mask of deceit. They will keep lying to cover up for their lies.

 

8. They live a double life

 

They lead a double life by wearing masks to fit their role. If you are beneficial to their being, they will treat you differently and if you are not, they will not bother about you. Their personality too is molded by their desires.

 

9. They will not apologize

If you believe you are superior to everyone else, that you are always right and that everyone owes you the best things possible, you cannot just be humble and accept your follies. Black hearted people never apologize because they do not care for other peoples’ feelings and they simply think they haven’t done anything wrong to apologize for.

 

10. They create their own facts

They will try to get the upper hand by making other see things through their perspectives, thus working for their welfare. They will alter facts and establish them as real.

 

11. They do not value your time

Black hearted people put themselves before others and do not care for other people’s’ time. They are just the means to the goal they want to achieve. They do not waste their time for others but demand the same from the later.

 

12. They don’t feel guilt or regret

They think they are above everything else and so nothing makes them feel bad. They do not feel guilty after using others because only the goal is of importance, not other people’s emotions.

 

13. They will often hide information

They will have to make others blindly believe them and to do this they hide information. They will protect their mask by tricking people.

 

14. They are irresponsible

Black hearted people do not think of the consequences or the long lasting impact of their action as it is all-important to them. They will be reckless and not care for the mess they create. Once the goal is achieved they go for another.

On that fateful day, 17th of January, 1996, Ibrahim and his friends were going on a jolly ride from Lagos to Kano for a party and family engagement.

He was travelling in the Nigerian Air Force presidential Falcon jet in the company of 13 other friends when just minutes to the landing at the Aminu Kano International Airport, the aircraft crashed and exploded mysteriously.

Ibrahim was with Funmi, his Yoruba girlfriend and a younger brother of Aliko Dangote named Bello, now the richest black in the world.

Bello Dangote’s death was described as a major shock and huge loss with Dangote describing him as the closest person to Dangote in the group and a ‘great thinker and visionary.’

The crash shook the country, and even the most avowed enemies of Abacha sympathized with him.
