August 21, 2016 – Fake Prophecy Gang Members Arrested At Holy Ghost Park In Enugu
Enugu State Police Command has arrested a five-man suspected fake prophecy gang.
According to Police Spokesman, Ebere Amaraizu, the syndicate specialized in working with some church owners to confirm prophecies in order to win more members for them .
The suspects identified as Obi Ejike, Kuku Mary, Oluwakemi Joy, Nwosu Chizoba and Peter Uchechi were picked up yesterday at Holy Ghost Park while heading to a ministry in Abakaliki.
According to Amaraizu, luck ran out on the syndicate members when they had some arguments, a development that attracted the attention of security operatives very close to the arena who suspected the scenario and intervened.
“On instant inquiry, the duo of Obi Ejike and Oluwakemi Joy were speaking at variance but further interrogation conducted immediately revealed that they are in for nefarious activities and eventually the other group billed for Abakiliki church/ministry prophecy were trailed and nabbed at P&T bus stop while waiting for bus to Abakiliki.
“One of the suspects, Peter Uchechi, a female, maintained that they were recruited in large numbers and kept in a house at Onitsha, Anambra state. From there they shuttle to various states of the country to confirm a prophecy for the purpose of winning more souls for the said church or ministry and that they are usually paid through their coordinator who hired the house and kept them there.
“According to her, they can be detailed to go to any state but the number of the link man in the said church/ministry is usually provided to them for easy connectivity on arrival and that they usually dialogue with the link man to the pastor of the church/ministry on the shape the job will take,” Amaraizu said.
