It was reported sometimes around last month that one Pastor Emmanuel of the Grace Dispensation Prophetic Ministry Int’l located in Amukpe Axis of Sapele Delta State was shot dead by Police during a robbery operation. The Founder and General Overseer, Grace Dispensation Ministries, Apostle Joshua Oribhabor has however come out to clarify the report.
In an interview with Sapele Olofofo Unugbragada, the General Overseer Apostle Joshua said Pastor Emmanuel visited his Ministry in one of his programs and he was accepted into the Ministry as a brother in the faith.
According to Apostle Joshua he said;
“I don’t have other Pastors in my Ministry and I have never ordained any, I don’t know where and who ordained Pastor Emmanuel, he do attend our programs and became a friend to the Ministry, but we were never aware of his illicit act and we never recognize him as a pastor.
My Ministry Grace Dispensation Prophetic Ministry Int’l is not and can never be a party to his evil deed, we are informing the general public that we know nothing about it and the name of our Ministry should not be dragged to the mud..”
The gang was reported to have been intercepted by a team of security operatives at Jesse. In the shoot out that followed, four of the gang members were reported to have fled into the bush while one was killed at the spot.
They were later apprehended by the police and in the process of interrogation, one of the gang members was killed he tried to outsmart the police team. The Pastor then made an attempt to escape and was also gunned down in the process.
News later filtered out that he was a pastor with one of the churches in Sapele. But the General Overseer of the church has since debunked the rumour.
