One Pastor Benjamin Ndieze of the Deliverance Home of Comfort Assembly, Ihiagwa, Imo State, has been arrested for arranging a fake kidnap in order to deceive his church members.
According to reports, Ndieze, on the 30th of January, 2018, arranged with one Blessing Ahamefula, from Abia State, to come to his Church with her 5-year-old daughter, Faith Ahamefula.
The pastor later handed the girl over to his church member, Emmanuel Onuoha, and ordered him to drop her at NNPC Filling Station, Control Post, Owerri.
During service and prophesy session, Pastor Ndieze prophesied that there was a woman in the congregation who was looking for her daughter that was kidnapped from Aba by her uncle one Emeka.
He added that the girl had been taken to Onitsha, preparatory to be taken to Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.
He also revealed that by his powers and prayers, the kidnappers and ritualists will abandon the girl at NNPC, Control Post, Owerri, and that all members who wanted to witness the power of God should come along to the location to witness it.
However, on getting there, some church members started shouting “kidnappers” and raising alarm.
The police was later invited and in the course of investigation, discovered that the pastor was fake and had defrauded most members of the church with a fake prophesy.
