He said detectives found out that the suspect collected N16 million cash from the widow and asked her to pay the remaining N2 million into his bank account, from information it was discovered that the suspect had other intention.
“The so-called prophet took advantage of the relationship he has with Oluchi Grace to swindle her. From the beginning he had the intention of defrauding the woman.
Later, he started threatening to kill the woman and her children when they discovered that he had swindled them.”
The widow said, she has known the prophet for over two years and trusted him as a man of God. .
“I later discovered that the land in question belongs to his ex-wife who is remarried and based in the U.S with her new husband. .
My son discovered her contact from her Facebook account. When we contacted her, she told us she was not selling the said property. In fact she rained abuses on us. .
When the prophet realized that the game was up, he started threatening to kill us. That was why I ran to the police before anything happens to me or my children,” the widow said.
