DON'T CASTRATE RAPISTS  -  Kano Council of Ulamas

The Kano Council of Ulamas, on Monday, rejected a proposal by the Kano State House of Assembly that rapists should be castrated.

The state House of Assembly had adopted the proposal for the castration of confirmed rapists, following a motion sponsored by a member, Mr Nuraddeen Alhassan, on July 15, 2020. 

A communiqué, signed by the Council’s Chairman, Sheik Ibrahim Khalil, and made available to The PUNCH, noted that the council opposed the proposed castration, after due consultations, hence it was advocating a review of the Kano State Shari’a Penal Code 2000.

Khalil, however, pointed out that the council’s position did not mean they were supporting the criminal act of rapists. He said  the council had resolved to visit the House of Assembly for advice and possible solutions in line with Islamic injunction.”

COVID 19 HAS A CURE..U.S.- based Nigerian Doctor Insists!  (VIDEO)

Stella Immanuel busted as a quack COVID-19 doctor - P.M. News
Dr Stella Emmanuel


A Nigerian-born and trained physician, Dr Stella Emmanuel, is trending on social media after delivering an emotional COVID-19 speech in the United States on Monday.

Speaking at a news conference in Washington, Emmanuel claimed that hydroxychloroquine, zinc and Zithromax were effective cures for the virus.

The Nigerian spoke during the event organised by a group of American doctors under the aegis of “America’s Frontline Doctors” in front of the US Supreme Court in Washington DC.

The doctors are holding a two-day “White Coat Summit” at the Capitol Hill to address what they call a “massive disinformation campaign” surrounding the virus.

Emmanuel dismissed experts’ warning that hydroxychloroquine could cause serious heart problems for coronavirus patients, citing her experience with the use of the drug.

The Nigerian, who was joined by other frontline doctors, said she had successfully treated no fewer than 350 patients with hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax.

Emmanuel also said hydroxychloroquine, long touted by President Donald Trump as cure for the virus, could also prevent the disease.

She said, “Hello, I’m Dr. Stella Emmanuel. I’m a primary care physician in Houston, Texas.

“I actually went to medical school in West Africa, Nigeria, where I took care of malaria patients, treated them with hydroxychloroquine and stuff like that.

“So I’m actually used to these medications. I’m here because I have personally treated over 350 patients with COVID-19. Patients that have diabetes, patients that have high blood pressure, patients that have asthma, old people … I think my oldest patients are 92 … 87-year-olds.

“And the result has been the same. I put them on hydroxychloroquine, I put them on zinc, I put them on Zithromax, and they’re all well.

“For the past few months, after taking care of over 350 patients, we’ve not lost one. Not a diabetic, not somebody with high blood pressure, not somebody who asthma, not an old person.

“We’ve not lost one patient. And on top of that, I’ve put myself, my staff, and many doctors that I know on hydroxychloroquine for prevention, because by the very mechanism of action, it works early and as a prophylaxis.

“I know you’re going to tell me that you treated 20 people, 40 people, and it didn’t work. I’m a true testimony.

“So I came here to Washington DC to tell America nobody needs to get sick. This virus has a cure. It is called hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax.

“I know they don’t want to open schools. No, you don’t need people to be locked down. There is prevention and there is a cure.”

Emmanuel, who said she had received several threats to have her practice permit revoked, insisted she would continue to administer the drugs on COVID-19 patients to save more American lives.

A Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist, Dr Simone Gold, who moderated the news conference, described Emmanuel as a warrior.

“Before I introduce the next guest, I just want to say that I wish all doctors that are listening to this bring that kind of passion to their patients,” Gold said.

If you have not yet received Jesus as Lord and Saviour of your life, say this short prayer:

Raise your right hand up unto the Lord and say: “Father, in the name of Jesus, I come before you now. I confess that I am a sinner. Lord, forgive me and cleanse me with your blood. Lord Jesus, come into my life, take control of my life, in Jesus name.”
