An unnamed pastor and two others, who allegedly faked miracles and healing to deceive church members and the public, have been arrested by the 2 Brigade of the Nigerian Army, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The Army Public Relations Officer, PRO, of the Command, Captain Eli Lazarus, parading the suspects on Wednesday, said the pastor and his accomplices conned several members.
The PRO said the pastor and his collaborators, whose names he didn’t mention, were arrested following a tip-off from a member of the church, who complained of immoral and fraudulent activities going on in the church.
Lazarus said, “The 27-year-old pastor and founder of the church, confessed to have paid his collaborators undisclosed amount of money to give false testimonies.
“The suspect said his church, Revelation Power Ministry, had over 100 worshipers.
“They confessed to duping unsuspecting members of the public of various sums of money.
“The suspects also confessed of stage-managing miracles and healing to attract members to their church located along Aluu community close to Port Harcourt,” he said, adding that the suspects would be handed over to the police for further investigation and possible arraignment in court,” the PRO added.
