The questionable spirituality of some Nigerian pastors has been exposed by Lolo Ebelechukwu Obi, the wife of the chief priest, Idemili Cultural Centre, Agulu in Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State, Chief Ralph Ndidi Obi.
During an interview with BBC pidgin, Ebelechukwu revealed that she was a prayer warrior in church before she got married to the chief priest eight years ago.
The chief priest’s wife said that she was dismayed after her marriage when she started seeing the secret of some ‘men of God’ who display power in the church.
According to her, some popular pastors usually visit her husband seeking spiritual power to enable them to perform miracles in their churches.
After getting married to my husband, some pastors that I cannot even mention, I started seeing them here and my husband, the chief priest, usually works for them,’ she said.
“They used to come to him for power but when they return to their church, they will begin to cast the water spirit. We deliver people from spiritual husbands and wives. When you come to us, we just settle the spirit and you will go and marry your spouse.”
Eberechukwu also insisted that there is nothing wrong with being a traditional worshipper, noting that Nigerians’ perception of the religion was wrong.
“When I was a prayer warrior in church, I used to see traditional worshippers as bad people but after marrying my husband, I found out that it is not even a bad thing”, she added.
KanyiDaily had also reported how police arrested a 44-year-old woman, Mrs. Bose Olasukanmi, who was used by several ‘fraudulent’ pastors to perform fake miracles in Nigeria.
