Sayou had been invited to the church by a friend on September 9, 2017, during a crusade organised by the church. On getting to the church a guest minister identified as Apostle Chris from Port Harcourt convinced him to give the sum of N20,000 and his SUV.

The young man reportedly parted with the vehicle and money after Apostle Chris had narrated frightening stories of how people that didn’t give died mysteriously and how he (Sayou) would die if he failed to give the items as well.

Afterwards, Apostle Abiekunogho allegedly promised Sayou, through the guest minister that in a month’s time he would receive whatever he had donated to the church in double folds.

Sayou said: “The guest pastor gave me honey to drink and mandated me to do change of ownership of the vehicle immediately. Thereafter, I went to a shop, bought a nylon bag and packed all my belongings and went home. When I woke up the next day, I started looking for the car then my wife reminded him that I had sown it as a seed in the church. After several months things got worse for me so, I asked the pastor to return my vehicle. When he refused, I reported to the case to the police. He later said he had sold the car which I bought N3.9m for N1.5m.

Upon his arraignment the magistrate, Eke Spiff, ordered Apostle Abiekunogho to produce the guest minister in court at the next hearing on April 4.
