A church leader has narrated how the General Overseer who is facing charges in court forged documents to change church’s trustees.

One of the leaders of the Christian Charismatic Ministries, Mr. Innocent Nwangwu, has told an Enugu magistrates’ court that the General Overseer, Pastor Dr. Sabinus Onuigbo, forged documents to change the church’s Board of Trustees after he was suspended for acts of ‘misconduct’, Punch has reported.
Onuigbo, the General Overseer of the Christian Charismatic Ministries and five senior pastors of the church – Pastor Tony Chukwu, Pastor Chukwuma Orji, Pastor Nick Nwoye and Pastor Tony Ike – are facing trial over alleged forgery.
The report further revealed that Onuigbo and the other pastors committed an offence punishable under section 495 (a) of the Criminal Code, cap. 30, Vol. 11, Laws of Enugu State of Nigeria 2004.
According to the charge sheet in the suit number CME/56C/2017, Onuigbo and the other accused persons, on or about July 16, 2014, and August 10, 2014, allegedly used forged documents to apply to the Corporate Affairs Commission to change the trustees of the church.
Testifying during the continuation of hearing in the case, Nwangwu disclosed that Onuigbo and the other accused persons moved to change the church’s trustees after he (Onuigbo) was suspended by the elders of the church over allegations of misconduct.
According to him, after investigating the allegations levelled against the General Overseer, elders of the church, at a meeting in March, 2014, in Enugu, decided to suspend Onuigbo, having found him guilty of the said offences.
However, the witness stated that Onuigbo and the other accused persons did not welcome the suspension, and as a result, opted to alter the church’s trustees in order to nullify the decision of the elders.
He added that the General Overseer and his group also moved to ‘deal’ with those who supported his suspension.
Nwangwu said, “Immediately the General Overseer was suspended, he planned with the other accused persons to deal with their perceived enemies – those that supported the suspension.”

Hoodlums loot Ndoma-Egba house in Calabar, cart away his late father’s robes

Published

on

Hoodlums who destroyed and looted the residence of former leader of the Nigerian Senate, Victor Ndoma-Egba in Calabar reportedly carted away the Judge’s robes of the politicians’ father.

Reacting to the incidence, Ndoma-Egba appeared to the hoodlums to return the robes of his late father who was a judge.

 

Ben Ayade, governor of the state, had imposed a 24-hour curfew as part of measures to contain the situation but the mob broke loose.

In a statement, Ndoma-Egba narrated how he got intelligence on the attack but despite informing security agencies, “nothing was done to stop the attack”.

“At about 2 am (local time, as I was abroad) on Saturday 24th. October 2020 I received a text informing me that there were plans by arranged hoodlums to attack my residence in Calabar, that of Senator Gershom Bassey and a hotel owned by Senator John Owan Enor,” he said.

“I promptly forwarded the texts to Senators Bassey and Owan Enoh. I also called the security agencies in Calabar to apprise them of the information. Calabar from my information was already tense from the previous day’s break-in into warehouses storing COVID 19 palliatives and the subsequent breaching of shops and other businesses. The impending attack on Senators Bassey, Owan Enoh and I was already public knowledge as later that morning I got many calls to that effect.

“Thereafter I kept calling the security agencies by the hour when in spite of their assurances that they will secure my house there was no evidence of any security personnel in my vicinity. I understand, the times were indeed confounding for everybody.

“At about 2 pm the intruders broke into my house and looted it to the ground leaving only the bare floor. All the toilets, baths, pumps and indeed every imaginable fitting were removed as were items of furniture, clothing, a huge collection of mainly rare, out of print books, documents and historic photographs. They also removed all the windows, railings, family pictures and burglary proofs. Even my private chapel was not spared.

“They set the cars ablaze and parts of the building after more than four hours of interrupted operations in my house. It was methodical. Among the intruders were obviously electricians, plumbers, carpenters, motor mechanics, panel beaters and other tradesmen. Mercifully, no life was lost. I started building the house in 1991 and moved in in January, 2009.

“While not prejudging, and without prejudice to the work of the security agencies, I have forgiven the intruders, and pray fervently for them to find meaning, inner peace, and fulfilment in their lives. I only plead that they return my late father’s judges robes which they certainly would not be needed for anything and is surely incriminating.

“The destruction of my house was clearly premeditated, wanton and unjustifiable but I understand the anger in the land especially amongst our youths. However, if looting and burning my home will better their lives and bring positive change to our land, then it is a sacrifice my family and I gladly make.”

Ndoma-Egba said there is an urgent need to educate, motivate and engage the youth if they must be a blessing to the country.
