How would you react if you
heard there was a sane man who hasn’t taken a bath for more than 13 years and
is not smelling? Impossible, you might exclaim. may be odd, but it is true. One prophet Wale Olagunju, the presiding
Bishop of Divine Seed of God Chapel Ministries in Ibadan, Oyo State, who has
neither taken a bath nor had sex with his wife since 2001, had his first interview with city people HERE, now he’s had another interview with Vanguard and this time, his wife spoke too and revealed how she’s been coping without sex.
Sir, we are here to get some clarifications on the story we heard about you.
know what you heard about me. But whatever it is I am ready and all ears.
When did your ministry start?
in 1994 but before then I have been a prophet, prophesying to people and all my
prophesies come to pass. And that was how we started till today. I was at the
Ikoyi mountain when the Lord revealed the church to me.
I went to Oke-Anu Mountain in Ibadan
where the name of the church was confirmed again to me. I told some pastors
about it and they confirmed that is the name of my church. I have been going
from one mountain to another until now.
I was at the University of Ilorin. I met a prophet, by name Bello; he is dead
now. He told me that God revealed to him that I was going to be a Prophet but I
didn’t believe him. Another prophet told me the same thing but I turned deaf
ears to it. In 1984, I met another prophet making it three prophets who told me
the same thing.
and that is what I have been doing since then. In my rigidity, I saw myself in
a vision holding a bible, preaching and prophesying to multitudes of people.
This particular vision came seven times, then, I knew, it was a confirmation of
all the prophesies. It was at that point that I knew I was in for a serious
and sex for 13 years start?
1999. In 2000, I was on the mountain (at Akike) where I spent a year praying,
asking God to give me more power and ability to prophecy accurately as well as
power. I asked God to give me power to do exploit in the ministry.
and Isaiah. But God told me there is a price to pay: “You must separate
yourself by abstaining from bath, sex, drinking of soft drinks and wine. When I
got home, I couldn’t tell my wife. It was a hard task to embark upon.
was battling with it and at the same time seeking the face of God for more
clarifications. So God revealed Himself to my wife and it was confirmed and so
since 2001 until now, water has not touched my body. God has been using me and
I have been prophesying according to his instructions and to the glory of God,
all the prophesies have been coming to pass.
drinking water and bathing with it.
time when you mistakenly splashed water on yourself?
any time that I drank water that it splashed on my body.
and that is why I don’t go to the mountain during rainy season. The Lord Jesus
did not have a wife, it is a price he had to pay. Whoever would be used by God
must pay a price. For example, John had no wife and he was in the Island of
Patmos alone eating locust.
that sense. It was a mutual understanding between us. We still live together as
husband and wife. She is my wife and I love her dearly. The only thing is that
we don’t have sex together anymore until God takes away the price from me.
from all those things.
it was not only sex and that is what you should know.
separate yourself for God and not commit sin is of God. There are two voices. I
hear the voice of God and it has been manifesting in my life till today.
advise your church members who also have such call?
any other man. It is going to be suicidal to imitate what I am doing because it
is a price I am paying.
instructed to do by God. For instance, prophet Isaiah was told not to wear
anything, not even a pant. If such happens today, people would say such person
is mad. He is Almighty God. So if God instructs your husband not to have sexual
intercourse with you, who am I to condemn God. But, I am not preaching that
husband and wife should not have sexual intercourse. Mine is a supernatural
encounter with God.
feel you have deprived her of her sexual right?
showed the same to my wife. I have a mutual understanding with my wife. We
don’t fight, neither do we quarrel over this issue. She is a pastor too.
We don’t, but we discuss about God, heaven, and how people are suffering in the
country and the way we can contribute our quota to humanity.

Everyday. She is my wife.
I have three children and they are grown up.
That was how God wanted it. He perfected everything for me.
price attached to your calling…
[Cuts in]: In any calling, there is always a price to be paid. So, my case is
not different to the prophets in the bible. For example, God told Samson not to
shave his hair, take alcohol, wine, or touch any unclean thing. So, God
Almighty works in divers ways. It wasn’t that I decided not to take my bath or
have sex with my wife. I did not abandon my wife. I love my wife and she loves
of not taking your bath?
I have no towel.

It is the grace of God. I do not smell and that is why He is the Almighty God.
What is very difficult for man is possible in the sight of God. God baths me
and feeds me.
I don’t clean up. I don’t want fame that will put me to shame. I don’t want to

am going to the mountain. I teach them the word of God. I don’t leave my family
behind because I don’t want the devil to snatch them from me. I want to nurture
them in the way of God. What is important is to always examine if what you are
doing is approved by God. Although there are people who profess themselves as
children of God but they are deceivers.
prophets and pastors in Nigeria right now but by their fruits you shall know
them. A prophet who marries two wives is not a prophet of God; or a pastor who
lives in affluence, or indulge in fornication and adultery. Prophet hood is a
delicate position that must be guided with the fear of God. His life must
conform with that of God. There are lots of people who do evil in the name of
God. A true prophet must always wine and dine with God. Unfortunately, every
Nigerian pastor is now a prophet.
you see yourself accomplishing this task in two years?
I can not dictate to God. But, He told me “very soon.” I fear God and I don’t
want premature death.
The examples you cited in the bible were months and days.
It is the grace of God.
Very soon. It depends on the instruction from God. My Lord Jesus Christ fasted
for 40 days and nights.
are already criticising you...
criticism. The matter is between them and God. I don’t see reason why people
should condemn me. If they are worried over who called me, they should go to
God and ask Him, rather than condemning people. I am answerable to God and He
will reward me accordingly.
In 2009, I was at the University of Ibadan to buy newspapers. I was standing
with my vendor when some people including professors were condemning me for not
taking my bath.
Unfortunately, they did not know I was the same person they were talking about.
They said, I was a false prophet; that I was looking for occult power. But I
explained to them and walked away. They were astonished.
a mentor. The only mentor I have is God. I focus my attention on the Lord Jesus
but for role model, I can mention Pastor Kumuyi, and it is because of the way
he preaches salvation to people. I am not saying I want to imitate Pastor
Kumuyi or behave like him.
would use you in the forthcoming general election in Nigeria?
not in the mindset of God for Jonathan to rule Nigeria again. If he forces
himself in as President in 2015, he will face the consequences. The Boko Haram
insurgency he is presently facing will be a child’s play compared to what will
befall him. The truth is that Nigeria will likely break into five nations. This
is a prophesy of 2003. There is no solution than the country breaking up.

break up in our generation, it will break in the generations to come.
The solution to Nigeria’s crisis is total breakup and it will take place any
moment from now.
Bimpe Olagunju]: Is it true that your husband has not had sex with you for the

it very easy for me. It is the grace of God .

I am not a prophetess. Many people have the notion that when a woman marries a
prophet she automatically becomes a prophetess. I have the calling of a pastor,
although I receive visions from God at times.

The public opinion does not count in as much as it is God’s commandment.
