The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM) has slammed an indefinite suspension on Mr.David Onyekachukwu of its Life Camp branch, Abuja, over a reported indecent relationship he had with a 16-year-old girl.
The indefinite suspension, according to a statement by the Church’s spokesman, Mr. Collins Edomaruse, is in line with the rules and regulations of MFM, which forbid such acts.
He also said Onyekachukwu’s indefinite suspension was the outcome of an investigation carried out by the Church, which established that he was culpable of the reported offence of rape that resulted in the reported pregnancy of the female teenager.
Confirming the incident, Regional Overseer (RO) of the Gwarimpa Region of the church, Pastor Babalola Niyi, said Onyekachukwu was not an ordained pastor in Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries.
“He is just a member/worker in that Life Camp branch and he has been suspended from the branch immediately. The church cannot stop the law from taking its course as doing so will amount to condoning evil and being an accessory after the fact. After investigation, we confirm that the raping and impregnating of the girl is true and the matter is currently being handled by the Police.
“However, we want to say that the accused is not an ordained pastor or an officially appointed pastor in MFM Gwarimpa Region. This is, therefore, a personal issue between the brother and the innocent victim. It has nothing to do with Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries.“
“In MFM, the leadership does not condone indiscipline. Absolute holiness within and without is our hallmark in Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries. This is of a priority in all our trainings and teachings to our Pastors and members. The alleged brother is already in the Custody of the Police to allow the law to take its course,” Niyi explained.
