Earlier, Briefly News reported that videos shared online by Instablog9ja have shown some 'spiritual actions' performed by Ugochukwu Emmanuel Ekwem weeks before he was arrested for transporting cannabis.

In the clips, the general overseer laid his hands on members during a deliverance service, making them fall under the 'power of his anointing'.

A show of spiritual power

A video showed the moment he ran into the choir, stretched his hand towards them as all of them fell. Ugochukwu went into another section of the church and 'impacted' them with his touch.

It was all like a typical television show of spiritual men demonstrating how spiritually gifted they are.
