Police authorities have arrested one Pastor Benjamin Ndieze, the officiating Pastor of Deliverance Home of Comfort Assembly, Ihiagwa in Owerri West LGA of Imo State for arranging a fake kidnap in order to deceive his church members.
According to reports, Pastor Benjamin Ndieze, on the 30th of January, 2018, arranged with one Blessing Ahamefula ‘F’ of Ihie Orji Umuonyaogu Ngwa Road, Aba in Abia State to come to his Church at Ihiagwa Owerri West LGA of Imo State with her 5-year-old daughter, Faith Ahamefula.
The baby girl was handed over to the Pastor who in-turn handed the girl over to his Church member, Emmanuel Onuoha and ordered him to drop the girl, Faith at NNPC Filling Station at Control Post, Owerri.
During service and prophesy session at the Deliverance Home of Comfort Assembly, Ihiagwa, Pastor Benjamin 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, that the baby girl had been taken to Onitsha preparatory to be taken to Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.
The pastor said that by his powers and prayers that the kidnappers and ritualists will drop and abandon the baby girl at NNPC Control Post, Owerri; that all members who wanted to witness the power of God should go to NNPC Control Post, Owerri to witness his power.
When they arrived the NNPC Filling Station, some members of the Church were shouting kidnappers, while others were raising alarm of cultism.
