in Lagos state have arrested the General Overseer and founder of a
church, Set Captive Free Ministry, Prophet Samuel for allegedly
obtaining N8m from his church member, Uche Nwoke under the false
pretense of delivering him from family curses.
According
to a report by PM Express, the deliverance turned into calamity as the
two children of Nwoke died in the same day and Ndukwu disappeared and

in the past because of the curses will be regained and directed him to
bring the money for the work.

deliverance which eventually led to the death of Nwoke’s children.
Nwoke asked to know why things turned out like that instead of getting
better, the Ndukwu said he did not know what happened. He then requested
the refund of his money and Ndukwu threatened to wipe out his family if
he dare asked for the money.
The matter was
reported to the Police and Undukwu fled before he was arrested and
charged to court for the alleged offence. He pleaded not guilty.

to give bail condition that will enable the defendant to come to court
for trial and the defendant no longer live in Lagos State. The presiding
Magistrate, Mr O.N. Ogbe granted him bail in the sum of N500,000 with
two sureties in like sum.

prison pending when he will perfect his bail condition. The matter was
