It was reported on some news media on Friday on the demise of Nigerian spiritualist, Sat Guru Maharaj Ji. One of his aides has however come out to debunk the rumours and claimed it was the handiwork of some mischievous individuals.
Mr Ojo Peter, the spokesman of Maharaj Ji, announced this on Saturday in Ibadan .
Peter alleged that the rumor was concocted by some people who, he said, have found it difficult to silence Maharaj Ji from telling the truth about happenings in Nigeria and the world at large.
”The news of the death of Maharaj Ji is not only false but one that was mischievously concocted by some disgruntled elements. They want to use the false news to cause disaffection among numerous members of the One Love Family, Nigerians and the world at large but Maharaj Ji has already exposed them for who they are.
Such news will never stop Maharaj Ji from saying the truth he is known for. We use this medium to tell the whole world that Maharaj Ji is hale and hearty and people of the world should disregard such false information.” Peter stated.
Maharajah Ji, on April 25, organised a news conference at Maharajah Ji village, where he warned Nigerian leaders working against the nation’s unity to desist ”or get consumed by the colossal problems they have created across the country”.Maharajah Ji also assured Nigerians that there would not be war in the country.
How Maharajah Ji started his Ministry
The spiritual guru’s group was founded on November 1, 1987. It all began after he received divine knowledge while studying in London in 1954.
In his words:
“During the divine encounter, I received the light and was mandated to go and liberate mankind from poverty, oppression, and injustice. I was specifically told to return to Nigeria and start the work of the one that sent me.”
This led to a change of name, which he says is the name of the creator. He says:
“Unknown to many people, Sat Guru Maharaj Ji is not an Indian name. It is the original, true name of the creator derived from Sankskirt, the mother tongue of creation.”
His religious group is known as the One Love Family or the One Love Mission, One Love, One Family and the Divine Love Family.
It is located in along the Ibadan-Lagos Expressway. It is referred to as “Satguru Maharaj Ji Village.”
