The Director of Administration, MFM, Akin Olawale, in a statement on Wednesday, disclosed that the church leadership has directed the said pastor to shut down the illegal facility and report to the headquarters for further actions.
He said, “It came to the notice of the leadership of the MFM on Tuesday (August 23, 2022) that a place in Okija in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State was allegedly being used to detain, chain and hold people hostage against their will in the guise of conducting deliverance.
