The Delta State Police Command has arrested a pastor in Onicha-Olona, Aniocha North Local Government Area of the state for allegedly extorting the sum of N550,000 from a woman.
It was gathered that the pastor, Emmanuel Mokogwu, claimed to have been ordained at the Winners’ Chapel four years ago.
the said pastor visited one Miss Theresa Okolie and prophesied that death was lurking around her. The 33-year-old pastor allegedly collected N550,000 from the victim to cleanse the house of demonic spirits to avert the death.
The victim said, “I think the pastor used a charm on me because immediately he told me that my house was covered in darkness and harboured the spirit of untimely death, I started running about to gather money for him. “I then gave him N350,000 that I kept for my farm and in the process of borrowing the balance from a friend, the police were alerted.”
But when contacted, the police spokesperson in the state, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, said she had yet to get the details of the incident from the Olana Divisional Police Officer as of the time of filing this report.
