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.

Operatives of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Police Command headquarters, Benin City, have swiftly launched an investigation into the case.

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.

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.

It was further gathered that the man, who now serves as a complainant and suspect, also alleged that the evangelist bought him a ram for thanksgiving in the church.

He added that the preacher collected from him a suit he presented to him as the church gift, in front of the congregation, shortly after he gave his false testimony.

When our 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 our reporter. (THISDAY)
