A Pastor based in Anambra state, identified as Ejike Nwachukwu has narrated how he rejected a N4million and Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) gifts presented to him by two people suspected to be fraudsters.
The Pastor revealed money and expensive car were offered to him in exchange for prayers.
Punch reported that the suspected fraudsters had visited the Pastor in his office to seek for prayers on a deal they were working on
The Pastor, who happens to be a lawyer studied them, he den asked questions to inquire about their source of income.
In his own words, “Two young men came to my office the other day with ₦2m cash.
“They said it was seed offering and that they had a business they were looking forward to God to bless soon and that the money was seed offering.
“I looked at the two young boys with ₦2m. I asked them what business they were expecting and they said it was a deal and that they would bring more money to me once the deal paid off. They promised to buy me a SUV.
“I prayed and the Lord revealed to me that it was Internet fraud and I told them so and they confirmed it was true.
“I walked them out of my office, but one returned with an extra ₦2m in the hope that if the money was much, I would accept it, but I sent them out.”
He advised fellow clergies not to collect money from such people while he advised the youth to flee from internet fraud
“This is just as there is a growing trend of fraudsters visiting pastors for prayers in order for them to succeed in their plots.
