  1. Please Naijagists, do not refer this individual as a Pastor. He is a fraudster. A genuine Pastor will never tarnish his image because of money. For the fact that this guy mount a podium to preach Bible does not means he is a pastor. There are lot of preachers out there who went to Theology School, who can memorize Bible verses but lack moral to be a Pastor. That is why some people get trap with that title, Pastor. As soon as they hear pastor, they get arouse to a high degree of emotion and allow themselves to be exploited.
