A popular pastor reputed for miracles in one of the pentecostal churches in Benin City, Edo state, is in ‘soup’ over an allegation of faking miracles to defraud unsuspecting church members.
An aggrieved member of the gang stage-managing the miracles for the ministry reported himself and the church to the police in the state capital.
He was said to have alleged that the self-claimed evangelist owed him N48,000.00 being his agreed fee for sitting in a wheelchair as a cripple for six days before he received his ‘healing’ during the church deliverance programme recently.
Dependable sources at the state police command headquarters revealed that the Founder and General Overseer of the ministry (name withheld) has been invited and quizzed.
When their reporter approached the complainant at the police command headquarters in Benin City, he stated that he wanted to use the money to buy drugs as he is on medication.
“It was N8,000.00 per day, the programme was six days, he collected the suit from me and gave it to another person”, the complainant told ThisDay reporter.
