Ondo state police rescued Kidnapped 77 Church Members Kept Underground For Rapture

 

 

The Ondo State Police Command has rescued 77 people who were locked in the basement of a church. The name of the church is Whole Bible Deliverance Church located at Valentino Area of Ondo town, Ondo State.

Saharaweekly understands that, the victims were allegedly hypnotized by their pastors.

 

 

 

 

The police said that the victims comprised 23 kids and 54 others including teenagers and adults, males and females.

It gathered that the pastors informed the worshippers to consecrate themselves by abandoning whatever they were doing and camp in the church for a seven-day programme ahead of the coming of Jesus Christ in two months.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Consequently, school children, workers and their spouses abandoned schools and offices to consecrate themselves for the coming of Jesus Christ. It was gathered that some members who did not believe the prophecy of the pastors and were irked by the development reported the development to the state police command.

Detectives invaded the church and met the worshippers kept in an underground apartment and rescued them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the parents, Mrs Jessica Akintemi, whose two girls and their father, Oluwarotimi, had moved to the church ‘to meet Jesus Christ’ said that her two girls had abandoned school since January because the pastors hypnotized them.

 

One of the parents of the rescued victims, Mr Michael Olorunyomi, said that he left the church because of alleged wrong Bible teaching but his child remained there.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He said, “I attended the church before and I left because of the wrong teaching the pastors give the members. The pastors teach the church members about the need to divorce their wives if they want to go to heaven. They turned the children against their parents by teaching them what is not in the Bible.

“When I left the church, my daughter refused to follow me. I made the mistake of leaving her behind. Before I knew what was going on, my daughter who was in 300 level in the university at the time dropped out and camped in the church waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ. It is because the pastor said that there was nothing again in the world and rapture would come in September this year. They arranged a marriage between my daughter and one of the pastors’ family members. They said nobody should go to work, no school and they must do nothing other than to wait for Christ’s coming in the church.’’

 

 

 

 

 

One of the victims, a third year student of Millennium College of Health, Priscilla Olorunyomi, aged 22, said she abandoned school notwithstanding that her parents told her not to attend church again.

 

“ I was born in that church. My parents left but I remained in the church because I am blessed by the teaching”, Olorunyomi said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“ I am obeying the scripture which says I should only obey my parents in the Lord, that is why I remained in the church.

 

“ My parents stopped paying my school fees when I left home in January and still attend the church. The pastors in the church have been feeding and paying my school fees until when I deferred my admission”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In an interview, the pastors, Anifowose and Josiah, denied the allegation of hypnotizing their members’ saying they only preached undiluted words of God to them.

 

“ We did not tell them to abandon their homes, they came on their own volition and they were accepted”, Anifowose said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“It’s a lie that we said that Jesus is coming in September because nobody knows the time of His coming”.

 

Parading the victims and pastors, the police spokesperson, Funmi Odunlami, said detectives received several complaints about the activities of the pastors and swung into action.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She added that they were lured and harbored under the pretense of religion.

BISHOP AMADI AND SON ADMIT KILLING WOMAN FOR RITUAL

POPULAR ABUJA PASTOR, CLERIC SON ADMIT KILLING WOMAN FOR RITUAL

 

The Nigeria Police Force in Abuja on Monday, 27 June, 2022 has confirmed the arrest of a Bishop amadi and his son, as they have been found to be responsible for the Kubwa P.W alleged ritual killing.

According to the police, both father and son have admitted complicity in the killing of the woman though each is pushing the actual act to the other.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A female mutilated corpse was dumped in Kubwa around P.W road by the side of the bridge in the early hours of Monday, 27 June, 2022 as passers-by noticed the mutilated parts and raised alarm.

A source disclosed that Bishop Amadi A. Amadi of Freedom Chapel International and his son, Pastor Kelechi Amadi, are allegedly connected to the killing.

They were both arrested after a Keke rider approached the police and told them that he conveyed the three sacks used in concealing the remains of the victim.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The source further disclosed that the son, Kelechi Amadi, told the Keke rider that the sacks were containing scraps and was asked to dispose of them at the P.W Bridge dumping site in Kubwa after he charged him N1,000 for his service.
The following morning scavengers known as Baban Bola broke the bags in search of scraped items, as they tore the sack just so they discovered the contents and alerted people.

The Keke rider in the morning while using the same route saw people gathered at the spot where he disposed of the sacks, he then stopped to see what was happening and realized it was the sacks he earlier disposed of that contained the mutilated body.
The Keke Rider voluntarily led the police to the church, where the Pastor and his Father, Bishop Amadi A. Amadi, were both arrested and handcuffed as they were led out of the church building by the Police around 3 pm on Monday, 27 June, 2022.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The police returned on Tuesday afternoon, 28 June, 2022 to seal the church after making further searches of the building in Kubwa.

The Kubwa alleged ritual killing has raised lots of eyebrows in the neighbor-hood of Abuja. After investigation, it was discovered that the Bishop and his son, Kelechi Amadi who is also a pastor admitted to the crime. Upon hearing the confirmation, the wife of the pastor Kelechi Amadi disassociated herself from her husband.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kelechi Amadi is married to 29-year-old Mercy Amadi and they both have two kids. They have been married for almost four years now. After the Kubwa P.W ritual killing saga, the wife Mercy Amadi took to her social media and removed all the tags to her husband pastor Kelechi Amadi.

Her name on her Facebook page use to be Mercy Amadi but after the incident, she changed it to Mercy Onyinye Cyril.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She also turned her marital status to single. Pastor Amadi who is a founder of a non-denominational prayer group known as the Company of Prophets, was arrested alongside his father for the Kubwa P.W ritual killing.

It was gathered that pastor Kelechi who is also called an apostle and a prophet was dismissed from the Nigerian Navy before he became a pastor. He has a couple of bad records from his past but it was said that God arrested him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After he repented he was then ordained by his Bishop father, Amadi A. Amadi as a pastor. He then grew into an apostle and then prophet pastoring one of his father’s churches. He was the head pastor of Freedom Chapel in Bwari Abuja.

It was reported that it was he who confessed that it was his father who is responsible for the act even though the father says otherwise. His wife Mercy Amadi now Mercy Onyinye Cyril has now disassociated herself from both her husband Apostle Kelechi and her father-in-law Bishop Amadi A. Amadi.
