The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry, MFM, has denounced one of its pastors in Okija, Anambra State, for allegedly operating a deliverance centre.

The pastor in question reportedly used his facility to detain and hold people hostage under the guise of conducting deliverance.

The Director of Administration, MFM, Akin Olawale, in a statement on Wednesday, revealed that the church leadership has directed the said pastor to shut down the illegal facility and report to the headquarters for further actions.

He also revealed that the church had contacted law enforcement agencies to properly address the situation.

He said, “It came to the notice of the leadership of the MFM on Tuesday (August 23, 2022) that a place in Okija in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State was allegedly being used to detain, chain and hold people hostage against their will in the guise of conducting deliverance.

“We got the information with a rude shock as that is completely alien to our practice all over the world. Although the alleged pastor is one of our pastors, the said facility is a private property of the pastor and his activities of conducting such kind of deliverance are neither with the knowledge nor approval of the church leadership.

“In his response to our preliminary investigation, the pastor claims the respective candidates who were being brought to him for prayer against mental ailment and drug addiction usually have their guardians to sign an undertaking for them.”
