A fake Pastor named Apostle Kingsley has been arrested and has appeared before Mrs. Eke- Spiff At a magistrate court sitting in Yenagoa Bayelsa state on the 12th of March 2018, for obtaining a white Toyota Limited Edition Jeep from a member of his church under false pretense.
The prosecutors, Nigeria Police Force, in a 3 count charge alleged that one Apostle Kingsley Abiekunogho tricked one of his church members Jones Seiyefa into giving him the sum of N20, 000 and the said Jeep in exchange for spiritual breakthrough.
That in a months time he would receive what he has donated (the car) in two folds.
Findings from Ebiwalismoment blog revealed that Trouble began between the two parties when the member, Seiyefa asked the pastor to return his Jeep because several months have passed without any form of financial increase, but he was growing poorer by the day.
It all began when Seyeifa attended the fake pastor, Apostle Kingsley’s church, named “God Is Able Mega Fire Ministry” located at Opolo in Yenagoa, during a special programme, when a visiting Pastor told him that God has a wonderful gift for him if he donates all he has to the resident pastor of the church.
Seiyefa then stepped out and pledged the ₦20,000, all he had left in his bank account.
His wife while explaining the ordeal to the Reporter said:
‘The visiting pastor told my husband that the amount was too small for a man in his caliber that is seeking financial breakthrough from God and asked if he had a car”
He told him he had a Jeep, the Man of God instructed him to hand over the Jeep to the resident pastor and that in one month his donation double.
It was also gathered that after donating the said sum and Jeep the next day, Seiyefa was invited to church on a later date to drink a special honey they claimed would perfect the miracle.
His brother who stays with them said:
“he came back home saying that he urgently needed to change the name of ownership of the jeep to the name of the fake pastor.
“All effort to stop him from carrying out the plan proved abortive. I thought he would change his mind but the next day I heard that he had done the change of ownership.
“But by the grace of God, days after he did the change of ownership he came back to his senses and revealed that he did all he did because he was under some kind of influence”
The presiding magistrate, Mrs. Eke- Spiff granted an application for bail filed by the defendant and adjourned the case 4th April 2018.
