“MIRACLE OR SHOW? **Bullet Unable to Penetrate A Pastor’s Body After He Was Attacked By Unknown Gunmen** Earlier today, the founder of Grace and power prophetic ministry international, Pastor David Elijah, was attacked by unknown assailants in Awka, Anambra state capital. According to multiple reports, the pastor was shot at while going to his church by the hoodlums as the bullets refused to penetrate his body even after piercing his car an tearing his clothes as it can be seen in the pictures.”
An eyewitness told Punch’s correspondent that the assailants had demanded N5m from the victim for an undisclosed purpose but were offered N1m by the pastor, which they allegedly rejected.
“As soon as they got to his church, they opened fire on the pastor. They snatched some undisclosed amount of money from him, leaving him unconscious. His vehicle was riddled with bullets,” he added.
“When I enquired, I was told that he was the pastor of the church. Who knows what he must have done to attract this kind of treatment to himself?”
