Apostle Chris Omatsola, Presiding Pastor of Zionwealth of Life Assembly (ZOLA), Lekki, Lagos State is now swimming in hot sex scandal as his ex-lover, Tamaratokoni Okpe has accused him of leaking their sex video on the Internet. She also revealed that the pastor released the video to force her into marrying him.
Tamaratokoni Okpe disclosed that; “I met Apostle Chris Kevwe Omatsola, the founder and pastor of Zionwealth of Life Assembly (Zola) in Lekki, Lagos, and we started dating in February 2018. It quickly escalated to a sexual relationship and when we had sex the first time, he told me that we should make it right by getting married. We continued our romance and one of the things we did together was recording videos and taking pictures of our intimacy.”
“I informed my mum about a guy coming for my hand in marriage and she said she was going to pray about it. Everything was rosy until he became violent and constantly beat me up till I bled. He came begging after each episode and I forgave him. In August, I called off the relationship and I was surprised that he accepted it in good faith initially, given his penchant for violence.”
“Sometime in August, he asked that we meet to talk on platonic grounds. During the meeting, he became hostile when he realised that I was no longer interested in him. He also refused to drop me off at home. He beat me up, seized my phone, forced me to unlock it and retrieved contacts from it just to track who I was seeing.”
“That was the final straw for me; so I never saw him again till September when he showed up at my place, crying and begging. I refused to fall for his tricks and there was no further communication from both sides till sometime early October when he apologised again.”
“On October 13, he contacted me with an anonymous number via WhatsApp with pictures, videos and threat messages, saying if I did not come back to him, he was going to release everything. I was surprised when at 7pm that day, people called my attention to the nude video and pictures circulating on the Internet. He said now that my pictures and videos were out there, no man would want to look my way again; that it was best we got married.”
“After the arrest, in the presence of his dad, he confessed to releasing the pictures and video. He apologised to me, my family, his family and the public. This was recorded on October 19, 2018, and I am in possession of the video. He even accepted to pay damages.”
“I was wrong to have been involved in premarital sex with a pastor. I was wrong to have allowed him persuade me to record our intimate moments. I have been fielding questions from my colleagues. I hope that this will pass soon.”
However, Apostle Chris Omatsola revealed that; “I never did anything of that nature and she does not have anything to prove it (assault). How do you, a popular pastor with a church in Lekki Phase One, leak your own sex video with your face on it? How does that work?
“That video (confessional video) was done under duress because I was picked up by the same lady and she demanded N200m (from me) for leaking the video, which I did not leak. She has it on her phone and I have it on my phone. So, she picked me up. My dad and the lawyer agreed that I should do a (confessional) video and it was under duress.”
“The police were there, the Investigating Police Officer was there; I am supposed to pay that girl N1m before the end of this month. This sex video came from an unknown telephone number. I started getting calls on Sunday morning while I was in church and somebody said my sex video was all over the Internet. I called the blog that posted it to take it down.”
“The next day, the police came to arrest me for it. I went to the station and I was detained; my lawyer came to take my bail. I was taken to the police headquarters where I was told that part of the conditions for bail was for me to make that (confessional) video. I needed to do it to come out to defend myself. You can’t defend yourself in a cell.”
Be that as it may, CSP Chike Oti, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, said; “A case was reported against the pastor who posted a sex video of himself and his girlfriend online. Investigation commenced at the Ajah Police Station and the pastor made confessional statement that he posted the video. He said he was madly in love and that was why he misbehaved.”
“However, because we see it is a case debasing womanhood and betrayal of trust, it was moved to the Gender Section for thorough investigation. At the end of the day, the man was granted administrative bail, while investigation continued.”
“Take anything coming from that man with a pinch of salt because we have established that he is a liar and an imposter. We have established that he has committed a heinous crime against a woman that once loved him. If he could commit the offence against the woman, lying against the police is a piece of cake for him. The confessional video he claimed that he was forced to make was done in the comfort of his car.”

Carrington Fellows Urge Nigerian Youth to Get PVCs and Participate in Election Processes
As part of the Carrington Youth Fellowship Initiative (CYFI) ongoing PVC Drive Campaign, distinguished members of the organisation hosted a webinar tagged “Your PVC; Plastic or Power? To encourage young Nigerians to see their PVCs as their power and access to political significance.
The webinar which was held on Zoom brought young people from different spheres together to discuss issues around electoral participation, with respect to the forthcoming elections.
During the event, which was moderated by Kawthar Salahudeen, a 2019 fellow of the Carrington Youth Fellowship, she stated that more young people still need to understand the importance of their PVC, and so stop seeing it beyond mere plastics. “We need to understand that these powerful PVCs will determine the fate of the nation in about 14 months to come”, Salahudeen explained.
The President of the Carrington Youth Fellowship Alumni Network, Olusola Owonikoko, in his opening remark where he expressed the reason for this webinar, said CYFI remains committed to mobilizing increased youth participation in Nigeria.
“The PVC drive is directly connected to the future of the youths, because only through strategic participation can we make our voices heard, and the 2023 elections provide a significant window of opportunity”, Owonikoko said.
He went further to say that the youth including women must shun all forms of indifference and contribute to the national conversation around the coming elections. We all must register for the PVC and be fully involved in electoral and political processes.
According to Paul Enejo, Programs Manager, Elections Yiaga Africa, “PVC is power and it gives a voter the power to vote”. He stated that aside from getting the PVC, it is more important to have the right attitude towards political participation. Enejo is of the opinion that the right attitude will birth novel ideas and strategies towards meaningful engagement in the 2023 elections.
Kunle Lawal, Executive Director, Electoral College, noted that “your PVC is your key card to your country, essentially because it unlocks your voting power.” According to Lawal, the PVC gives power and takes power!
Oyeyemi Immanuel, a legal practitioner, and social entrepreneur explained to participants at the webinar that the corporate sector and individuals have a role to play in the electoral process of our great country. “The corporate sector has a bigger role to play in driving choices that directly impacts our nation. Our economy is in need of resuscitation and the corporate sector plays a critical role towards the sustainable development of our nation.”
Lying emphasizes the need for increased participation amongst the youth she said “Individuals should see the need to participate actively and strategically in the electoral process, not until then can say we have made a choice.”

Lack Of Electricity Killing Nigerian Industries, Says AfDB President, Adesina
President of the African Development Bank Group, Akinwumi Adesina, on Tuesday lamented that a paucity of energy was negatively affecting the growth of Nigerian industries.
Adesina made the comment while speaking at a meeting organised by the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) in Abuja.
“Today, no business can survive in Nigeria without generators,” Adesina said. “Consequently, the abnormal has become normal.
“Unless Nigeria decisively tackles its energy deficiency and reliability, its industries will always remain uncompetitive.”
Also speaking at the meeting was the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
Dr Okonjo-Iweala noted that trade was a key part in the global economy recovery and called for more support for micro, small and medium enterprises.
“Poor countries need access to bigger markets to grow rapidly,” she said. “With trade projected to grow at 10.8 percent this year, more than twice as fast as GDP, external demand will far outpace domestic demand for many countries, especially those on the wrong end of the k-shaped recovery.
“For Manufacturers, trade is also important because they need better access to imports as well as competitive logistics and other services critical to international competitiveness.
“Digital is very important here, especially for young Africans and the businesses they create; many businesses have been able to weather the pandemic because they were able to access the Internet and sell online.
“We should work harder, first to understand the barriers facing micro, medium and small enterprises in global trade and then to lower these barriers.
“At the WTO, different groups of members are seeking to do just that. One group is working on an e-commerce agreement. Another is working on empowering MSMEs to trade; and a third is working on lowering barriers facing women in global economic trade.”
