Enugu Pastor arrested for scamming members of over N500million tells his side of the story

The Enugu State police command yesterday said it has arrested the General Overseer of the City of Liberation and Comfort Ministry, Bishop Ginika Obi, for allegedly swindling his members to the tune of over N500 million. .

His ministry, located on Enugu-Port Harcourt
highway, became a beehive of activities last year as people from various
walks of life, especially miracle seekers, trooped to the church. .

But
the place became a shadow of itself after it was discovered that the
NGO he floated to lure members into investing on the guise of reaping
“bountiful dividends” was aimed at defrauding them. .

When he
was caught in his tracks, the Unuaku Uli self-acclaimed preacher ran
away, abandoning his church and members. He was, however, arrested at a
hotel in Enugu at the weekend, where he was said to be taking refuge. .

Obi
had used his NGO, ‘Build Your Generational Organization’ to allegedly
defraud his members and other unsuspecting members of the public of
various huge sums in the hope that they would reap bumper financial
dividends after some time. .

When the bubble burst last year, he
abandoned the church and escaped to Asaba in Delta State and started
operating a new church with a new name. He was also said to have changed
his title from ‘Bishop’ to ‘Prophet.’ .

The cleric, however,
said he never knew his financial NGO would turn out this way. He
disclosed that the amount he defrauded is not up to the sum of N500
million but N186 million.
