Apparently, there seem to be more fake pastors in Nigeria than real pastors; as yet another man of God who is allegedly involved in series of questionable acts has been exposed. The self acclaimed Pastor identified as Osinachi Raymond, a 27 years old indigene of Ubulu-Uku in Aniocha South LGA but resident at Morka Street, Boji-Boji, Owa was apprehended by members of Agbor Gha-Ihun for allegedly swindling people on Friday, August 18, 2017 in Agbor. The arrest of this wolf in sheep’s clothing also broke the kernel of his acts of adultery with a married woman whose husband was said to be abroad. One of the victims of the Pastor’s nefarious acts, Mr. Blessing Leader Monye, who hails from Oza-Nogogo but resides in Ogwashi-Uku in his assertion, accused Raymond of the use of diabolical means to cause and problems in families and homes, brainwashing them and ripping them of their hard earned money.
Narrating his ordeal, Mr. Monye said, “this demon who claims to be a pastor brainwashed one of my brother’s wives named Patricia, that I took her husband’s picture to commit evil against him, adding that I am also disturbing their destiny. He said I was using Raymond to cause problem for them and that I have paid him N150,000 to work for him. He also alleged that the last payment I made was N80,000 which I transacted through mobile banking. “This issue so created division amongst my family members to the extent of charms being buried in my family compound at Oza-nogogo. The matter became worse when this my brother’s wife and her five children had a very serious accident with a bike and all finger pointed at me that I am the cause as they have been brainwashed by Raymond and since then, my brother’s wife started calling me a wizard. To further ridicule my name, this same Raymond whom I have never seen in my life let alone pay him N150,000 to work for me, went and met the wife of my friend in Ozanogogo, Mr. Jerome to inform her that her husband should beware of me for no reason. Raymond also alleged that he was the one that have been helping me spiritually to make money which I use in building my house and that I now want to kill my brother. We have been in search of him since until he was now captured by the security operatives.”
Speaking further, Mr. Monye said he wants Raymond to tell the world how and when he met him and when he asked Raymond to work for him spiritually. Raymond when interrogated confessed to the press that he had never met with Mr. Blessing Monye. He accused Mrs. Patricia of fueling the matter, adding that what he buried at Monye’s family compound was a stone which he said was to drive away evil from any home.
On the issue of fornicating with Hope, Raymond narrated that he met her after a programme in Ozanogogo but was unknown to him that Hope was married with a kid. His words, “Hope lured me into committing adultery with her. Though she was very helpful to me financially and particularly when my relationship crumbled with the girl I wanted to marry. I never knew she was married, it was all the devil’s work and I beg for pardon.
Meanwhile residents who reacted to the matter has advised people to beware of the many fake pastors in new generation churches, saying that they can go extra miles with evil practice to swindle them.
As at the time of filing this report, the case has been handed over to the Palace of the Dein of Agbor kingdom for justice.
