General overseer arrested for collecting N8million for deliverance in Lagos

Published

on

The General Overseer and the founder of  Set Captive Free Ministry, Prophet Samuel,,has been arrested by the Police  for allegedly taking N8m from one of his church member identified as Uche Nwoke, for delivering him from some family curses. Things went out of hand after the deliverance failed and the two children of Nwoke died on the same day. This development led to the disappearance of the pastor who left hurriedly for Port Harcourt and was arrested there.
After Prophet Samuel was arrested, he was brought back to Lagos where he was arraigned before a magistrate in Isolo court. He was charged for false pretense, theft and threat to life. As a result of this, he was locked up in the prison.
Nwoke had been told by the prophet that his growth was being hindered by his family members. He also told the unsuspecting victim that he had to carry out a deliverance session to break the curse. The pastor had guaranteed that things would change for him and his immediate family members after the deliverance. The poor man who believed the prophecy of the pastor was said to have sold all he had in order to give the pastor the money for the deliverance to be done.
The outcome of the deliverance done left Nwoke’s children dead. This saddened the man as he wondered why things became worse instead of turning out better. Nwoke asked the pastor for a refund after this event; he was threatened by the pastor who said he was going to wipe out his family if he does not forget about the money. The matter thus got to the police who arrested Prophet Samuel and charged him to court.
Prophet Samuel pleaded not guilty. He was granted bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum. He was remanded in prison pending the time he would meet the bail condition. The case has been adjourned till Monday, June 26, 2017.
