A popular Nigerian prophet, Joshua Iginla, has allegedly bought himself a private jet. The founder of Champions Royal Assembly in Abuja allegedly acquired the private jet during his birthday celebration.
The general overseer had confirmed that he bought the jet while he was celebrating his birthday with members in his church on Sunday, May 26.
It was gathered that the prophet also donated money to over 142 widows. He also gave 3 widows and several of his pastors land and properties worth millions of Rands.
In a statement released by the church, the prophet says jet was bought to ease the missionary work of the prophet, who travels from one country to another.
The statement said: "Added the new wonder on air to ease the missionary work as a prophet with global impact. Acquiring a private jet is not a luxury but borne out of necessity. Arguably, Nigerian prophets are among the most sought out globally.
"Most times, they are needed in two or three countries in different continents in a day. Hence, there is a need to create a very easy means of transportation for them, coupled with the fact that our transportation industry is still way behind compare to other developed countries and that is why we see men of God purchasing private jets, not to show off but to make movement easy for them for evangelical and missionary purposes."
