Rita Ibeni is a Blackmailer, Bishop Chris Kwakpovwe Is Innocent

How-Rita-Ibeni-Planned-To-Blackmail-Me-Bishop-Chris-Kwakpovwe

A blackmailer who claims to be a journalist has landed in Kirikiri Maximum Prison attempting to extort money from a popular clergy in Lagos through blackmail. Ohio Ojeagbase, 38, walked into the net of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, after perfecting his extortion plot on Bishop (Dr.) Chris Kwakpovwe, the General Overseer of the Manna Prayer Mountain and publisher of the daily devotional, Our Daily Manna. He was arrested alongside a Lagos-based lawyer, Barr. Uche Iloani accused of working together with Mr. Ohio who owns Probiters Report.

Trouble started for Ohio and his accomplice after they had planted a lady in Bishop Kwapovwe’s ministry to function as a staff whose job was to feed them with information that could facilitate their blackmail plans on the clergy.

Rita Ibeni, the staff, who worked in the media department of the ministry for about five years, was fingered after a massive looting of the ODM Video Unit of media and video equipment worth N5.6 million. The main suspect and other departmental staffers were arrested. When she was confronted with evidence of the theft, she absconded from the church office. This prompted her arrest at the instance of the ministry and a case was filed at Area H Police Command, Ogudu, Lagos. Upon her arrest, Barr. Iloani, who claimed to be her counsel, came forward to demand for her immediate release with a plea to the ODM and the ministry that the matter would be settled out of court.

However, as soon as Rita Ibeni was granted bail, the story took a new twist as Mr. Ohio went to work. He wrote a letter to Bishop Kwakpovwe claiming that the latter tried to oppress one of his staffers and that they were going to publish a story in that regard which could finish the ODM Vision which has affected millions of lives across the Globe. According to him, “Whatever we tell the public will be believed since we have 250 million online membership.” He demanded millions of naira from the man of God if he wanted the story killed. Ohio Ojeagbase claimed he and his accomplice had recorded verbal (audio) conversations between Rita and the bishop where the man of God made sexual advances at the former. However, further probe and forensic examination later, revealed that the recording was fake as the fabricated voice was not the bishop’s.

After series of accusations and threats to publish negative story of sexual harassment and threat to life concerning the Bishop and even threats of kidnap of his loved ones by other faceless members of the group, they demanded settlement to avoid the story going viral, claiming it was not their intention to damage the image of the revered man of God. They also told the bishop they had done a “human google” on him and they knew his worth! At that point, the bishop “smelled a rat” and quickly reported the matter to the police.

The lawyer asked for N15 million (fifteen million naira) for inconveniences tagged as professional fees and the inconveniences his ‘client’ Ms Rita Ibeni had gone through during her arrest, while Mr Ohio demanded for 50% of whatever is paid to the lawyer.

The suspects also gave the man of God the option of handing in original copies of his property documents that they would help him facilitate quick loan from a bank so he could make the payment without stress. That was when the Bishop Dr Chris Kwakpovwe went back to the police to lodge complaints. The police then advised that further calls, SMS or meetings be electronically recorded as evidence, and that was done.

They were, however, rounded up on Wednesday, April 12th, 2017 in Ogudu, Lagos, while they were at the agreed venue for the man of God to make payment. Journalists further gathered that they came on that day with two borrowed jeeps.

The case was charged to court on Thursday April 17, 2017 where the suspects were remanded at Kirikiri Maximum Prison over their inability to meet up with the bail conditions.

We gathered that Mr. Ohio had earlier blackmailed many clergymen and businessmen in the country. The suspects, according to information made available to us, were in the habit of planting people in the homes and offices of wealthy men and women, clergy men, business men and women to plan how to blackmail and extort money them eventually.

Speaking on the incident at the court premises, the bishop told journalists that he knew that this was a plot to DISTRACT him from the LOOTED VIDEO EQUIPMENT’S CASE, Blackmail/Extort money (millions) from him and discredit him as a man of God, but his proactive approach to get to the bottom before they carried out their nefarious acts stopped them in their tracks. He said he never made any advances and can never do so with the suspected looter of the video unit (the former employee). “I am used to such satanic fabrications, gang-ups, lies, concoctions and distractions! He reminded journalists of a current and lingering court case which involves a lady who took him to court for the ridiculous charge of falling down and breaking her teeth at a Lagos National Stadium programme – World Anointing Night, 6 years ago.

“Thousands of souls came for that programme from 23 countries, 6 years ago. The lady whom I never met, took me to court and she is claiming 22 million damages. The case which provoked nationwide outrage against the lady is still on.”

“As a man of God, such lies, manipulations, fabrications, temptations and battles are expected because the devil is mad and will be mad against any child of God who is living right and who is a terror to his kingdom. But he is only a roaring lion without teeth. Was Joseph not wrongfully attacked and blackmailed by Mrs Portiphar? But did he not sit on his throne at last? I have learnt that in life, success attracts uncommon battles and for every one person who celebrates your success, there are at least two others who are plotting your down fall. Indeed, there are no blue skies without storms but the rainbow is the final bus stop if you refuse to be distracted from your goals! Victory is sure by God’s grace! I shall make no deeper comments for now since the matter is before the courts.” He said.

Publisher of “Our Daily Manna” want to have sex with me and more of his atrocities, Rita Ibeni alleged (pics)

Rita Ibeni left and Bishop Chris

Bishop Chris Kwapovwe is the publusher of  our Daily Manna (ODM)

I feel the time has come for me to speak out in the light of the media warfare and deliberate falsehood being dished from the pulpit against me by Bishop Chris Kwapovwe of our Daily Manna (ODM). My person and character has been consistently maligned by a man I once called Daddy, a man I once looked up to for inspiration and guidance, a man whose charisma stir up my faith to believe the impossible.

At the beginning of this nightmare, my faith and Christian upbringing restrained me from speaking out, for fear of being accused of attacking a “man of God” but as the saying goes silent means consent. To many my continuous silence in the face of being used as sermon topic week in week out is a confirmation of my assumed guilt.

images-55

I want to start from the very beginning to tell my side of this unfortunate story. My first contact with ODM was when I was invited to the month anointing service by a catholic family in 2010. After my first visit I started attending Sunday services and from there I became a member of the church, and subsequently joined the technical dept due to my previous experience as a volunteer. In September 2012 there was a vacancy for full time employment which I applied for and was employed.

Upon my employment, I continued to work as a camera man in the department until 2015 when the unit head Mr. Adewumi Aderemi was sacked, due to issues surrounding missing equipment. Upon his sack I was asked by Bishop Chris to take over from him. This elevation was the beginning of my nightmare. On assuming the position of unit head, I quickly took inventory with the HOD of the technical department Deacon Patrick Uchendu. After the inventory we found out that mixer, transmitter, video camera, Photo camera and photo album were missing. Together with Deacon Uchendu we went to see the AGO to report the matter. We eventually took the matter to Bishop Chris, who invited Inspector Clarus Atabor the Mobile police chief security officer to go and arrest Mr Adewumi. But that was the last I heard of the matter.

On February 14 this year Bishop Chris suddenly recalled Mr Adewumi and stated at the staff meeting that he heard that Mr Adewumi stole some equipment. But as a father he is willing to forgive him. He then asked Mr Adewumi to go to the Alter in the main auditorium to ask God for forgiveness from “his three friends”. All of a sudden the Bishop ordered me and Mr Adewunmi to take a fresh inventory. The second inventory confirmed the same items we found missing on Mr Adewumis departure in 2015. Meanwhile, the telephone sexual harassment continued, in spite of this official attitude.

I must confess that at first I was shocked, scared, and confused at the same time. I was in a dilemma as of what is the right way to handle such an abnormal situation, knowing that even my close acquaintances will struggle to believe me. So the double dealing continued, the Bishop will talk tough publicly and declare his love for me in private. It was indeed a nightmarish situation. I was between the devil and the deep blue sea, if I speak out I will be accused of trying to bring down a man of God and if I keep quit as I did the torment continues.
Faced with the challenge of who to turn to within my immediate environment without complicating the situation, I decided to stay away from work and stopped picking up the Bishop’s calls.

In all sincerity, I was hoping that the church intervenes by sending people to find out what actually happened and to resolve the matter in a Christian way. Rather what I got was a police raid from Ogudu Polices station on the 27th of march2017. I was arrested with the accusation that I stole the missing equipment; the case was reported by Pastor Ime Eno under the instructions of the bishop without reference to the church administrative and disciplinary organs. I protested that I was in poor health, as well as observing my menstrual circle. I was assured that I was only going to make a statement and return home. On arrival at the station, I discovered that I was the only one arrested and accused directly of stealing the missing items. Every effort to secure my bail by and lawyer was abortive as the police appear to be under instruction to keep me locked up. On the second day, to my utmost surprise Bishop Chris came with all members of our unit, including Mr Adewumi as witnesses against me, I expected that if something is missing the police would have conducted general investigation, why was I singled out? But to the glory of God none of them claimed to have seen me with any of the missing equipment despite being obviously coached on what to say. Same day in the DPOs office Bishop Chris was blowing hot and cold, he asked the DPO to appeal to me to return to work, with a promise to write-off the cost of the equipment after consulting with his “Three friends”. Due to the conflicting actions and utterances of the Bishop the IPO asked me to tell her what is going on between me and the Bishop. When it became clear that Bishop Chris was out to punish me, I had no option than to open up to explain why I stopped picking his calls and stayed away from work. When I said that, the police asked if I had any proof of sexual harassment and I requested for my phone and played a few recordings to them. On hearing the tape recordings the police quickly granted me bail and informed the Bishop of the development.

On learning of the tape recording Bishops Chris quickly told the police he was no longer interested in prosecuting the case but wants to settle the matter amicable. The next day he set up a meeting with my lawyer, his lawyer, publicist, me and his wife Rev Dr Flora Ejiro Kwakpovwe at Dominion Pizza at Ogudu. Bishop’s wife, who is the Assistant general Overseer of the Church, bought pizza for everybody. She requested to hear the tape and after listening briefly appealed for settlement, referring to the matter as a family matter. So the meeting ended on a very conciliatory note. Or so we thought.
Two days later my lawyer called me to say the Bishop requested for another meeting, insisting that he wants to see me to personally apologize to me. I declined to attend as I still wasn’t feeling well. I expected my lawyer to call to brief me on the meeting but didn’t hear from him, I called his phone but it was switched off. Late afternoon of the next day, my lawyer called me to inform me that Bishop Chris stormed the venue of the meeting at the same Dominion Pizza Ogudu with three truck load of men of Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad (FSARS) to arrest them. They were detained at SARS office at Ikeja and hurriedly charged to court the next day. As God will have it they were granted bail and released the same day. After narrating this sudden twist in the case it became clear why the Bishop was insisting he wants me to be in the meeting. As the smart person he prides himself to be, he was hoping to seize the recording from me through his SARS operatives. Why SARS? I asked, he explained that the Bishop alleged that they were trying to blackmail and extort money from him.

While this was going on, Bishop Chris continued to attack me from his pulpit, calling me unprintable names, claiming that I tried to seduce him, after stealing equipments worth 13million naira later said 7.5milloin and later told the police 5.6million naira. After his friends in high places gave him SARS operatives in a matter of missing office equipment to torment me and those who came to deliver me from his mighty hand. He changed the story that I was an agent of a blackmailing gang who wants to extort his “hard earned money”. Sadly his church members who are victims of his deceitful life style, lies and manipulations never stop to question the reason a whole Bishop went to a police station to lie and lock up a church member without subjecting the case first to the church disciplinary and internal crisis management process?
Why is the man that preaches to others to be the first to forgive, be the first to run to the police just to intimidate me to give in to his ungodly demand?
After the harrowing experience my lawyer petitioned the Lagos state commissioner of police against SARS actions and continuous intimidation. The commissioner ordered SARS to transfer the case file to his office and summoned all parties to his office. Present at the meeting that took place in the conference room of the Lagos state Commissioner of police are Bishop Chris, his wife, lawyers, Pastor Ime Eno, me and my lawyer. At the Meeting of Wenesday 26th April, superintended by the Lagos state deputy commissioner of Police, Alh Dasuki Galadanchy, Head of the Legal department CSP Yetunde Cardozo, after listening to the tape recording told him that he really harassed me. At that meeting even the SARS people who have been acting like an arm of ODM security became sober after hearing the tape recording and oral evidence. However, the Bishops comic side reared its head to the amazement of every one when he demanded from the police to ask me to apologize to him for recording his voice, after initially denying that the voice was his. At that point we were asked to go and settle the matter and report back to the police.
Rather than adhere to this instruction, the Bishop and his loyal servants and publicist has continued to sponsor evil reports against me. Linking me to everything missing in ODM since inception just to tarnish my image and maintain his false image before his church members.
WHY I RECORDED BISHOP CHRIS CALLS: Many members and supporters of Bishop Chris have understandably raised this point. And I think it’s fair to address it.
I want to reiterate the fact that what happened to me was shocking and confusing. Here is a man I called Daddy, a man I regarded as a mentor and spiritual guide. But it did something to me. It removed the scale from my eyes and I started paying attention to some of the stories circulating in the church and started questioning some practices and actions. Below are some cases that proved to me that Bishop Chris has no value for relationships and considers everyone around him as disposable material.
DEACON EMMA OKOKORO’S CASE: Dcn Emma was Bishop Chris loyal PA for 22years. He was fondly called Junior Bishop due to his dedication and commitment. Early last year, Dcn Emma suddenly disappeared from the church. After a few weeks of stories making the rounds that he left after the Bishop said to one Rasta man, his technician that Dcn Emma does not exist in his presence. To which the Deacon responded that he exist in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Emma was quoted to have said, that once the Bishop makes such utterance in anger something evil will happen to a person.
Rather than reaching out to Deacon Emma he came to the Church to announce that he just discovered from Deaconess Oyegun that Deacon Emma is a thief who has been stealing from him. He went further to tell a dumb founded congregation that Deacon Emma tried to Poison him. Nobody could reconcile what he said with the personality and unquestionable commitment of Deacon Emma.

DEACONESS ESTHER OGOS CASE: Deaconess Esther Ogo was Bishop Chris’ Head of protocol who was unceremoniously dropped and replaced by a more pliable young man Daniel Egbo. Daniel Egbo was rapidly promoted to Deacon and Pastor within two years.
The story was that Deaconess Esther went against Bishop Chris’ instruction to book one Miss Tamie West on the same flight and the same hotel to Uyo. Miss Tamie west is Bishop Chris choir director who was known not to be in talking terms with the Bishops wife because she was romantically linked with Bishop Chris.
The story was that Deaconess Esther felt it was wrong to book Miss Tamie in the same flight and hotel with Bishop Chris considering the rumors surrounding their personal relationship. She decided to book Miss Tamie in a different flight and hotel with other staffs and ministers for the event.
This action did not go down well with the Bishop and Miss Tamie west. So on return to Lagos after the event Deaconess Esther was disgraced out of the department and replaced by inexperienced but loyal Daniel Egbo. The Deaconess was used to preach and practically ridiculed out of Manna Mountain [ODM]
MRS DOLAPO KWAKPOVWE, BISHOP CHRIS FIRST WIFE: Bishop Chris regales his church members with the story of how he wanted to commit suicide because his wife left him and everybody deserted him. But his ongoing Divorce proceeding at an Igbosere court reveals that his wife Pham Dolapo Kwakpovwe left him for serial adultery having caught him on four occasions on their matrimonial bed with members of the Church then known as LIBERTY ARMY.
THE WOMAN THAT LOST A TOOTH AT THE STADIUM: every worshipper at ODM knows this story. A woman attended anointing service at the indoor spot hall of the National stadium; she failed during ministration and lost some tooth. The matter was not managed well and the woman went to court against him. Bishop Chris will preach with this woman on every occasion calling her a Gold digger, who wants to blackmail and extort money from him.
DEACON SOLOMON ALO: The last straw was the public ridicule and humiliation meted on this loyal servant, a fine Christian gentleman who can lay down his life for Bishop Chris and his church. Deacon Alo was called all manner of names by the Bishop for daring to appeal to him to take it easy on mama, his wife who was crying, after another round of humiliation at a meeting. After the tongue lashing Deacon Alo was suspended indefinitely
I left the meeting knowing that nobody with the right spirit can survive under this man.

OTHER VICTIMS: Time will fail me to talk about Pastor Chike and Pastor Patrick Nnadi, pioneer Pastor of Manna Mountain {ODM} church. Pastor Prophet Shekina Igho, Deaconess Ruth, amongst.
It is a fact that nobody leaves Bishop Chris of ODM without being tarnished as a thief, money grabber, and etc.

Having experienced all these contradictions, it became clear to me that if I keep resisting his advances I will be next in line on his casualty list. That is why I started recording his advances for a day like this when my integrity will come under attack|.

In conclusion, I wish to state as follows:
I did not steal any equipment from ODM
I did not blackmail or collaborate with anybody to blackmail Bishop Chris
I did not go to the police or the press with recordings of his sex demand, rather he is the one who took me to SARS, using Church money to induce SARS to intimidate into silence.
I did not clone his voice, if he is sure the voice is not his let him take necessary steps to prove it. I do not know of any technology that could clone a man’s voice for hours in a two way communication.
I never had access to Bishop Chris Phones. I don’t need his phone to extract videos that are sent through Whatsapp.
There is no roaring lion anywhere Bishop Chris Kwakpovwe is the Lion of intimidation.
Nobody is trying to bring him down; it’s just nemesis catching up with him in Gods appointed time.
Let members ask him why was I the only one arrested? You can go to Ogudu police station to verify this. Other members of the department came with him as his witness,
Why did he block the police from investigating Adewunmi, the private security company, the store where the equipment was kept and the CCTV cameras, if he is not just out to punish me for daring to resist his advances.
Why was my departmental Head, Deacon Patrick, kept in the dark about this persecution?
I have dozens of tape recording of his amorous calls at ungodly hours which will be made public soon for those who know him to judge.
It has never been about money, I only want to redeem my name and my family’S name which he has gone to great extent to tarnish without cause
He claims his members who are supposed to be spiritual are contributing money to fight this case to its logical conclusion instead of praying to the God of justice to reveal the truth to them. I want his church members to have the opportunity to know the kind of person he is.

I dare him to swear by the heavens that the conversation below is fake !!!

Humility meets humility as Ooni offers Pastor Adeboye the highest stool in his palace (pic)

The General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye while on a courtesy visit to the palace last week was offered the seat by the Ooni of Ife himself which is against the tradition.

According to the Ooni, there is none greater than God.

Despite the protest and refusal of Pastor Adeboye, Oba Ogunwusi insisted, pointing out that Pastor Adeboye was representing God in his palace, hence deserved the greatest seat!!!

See a registered church in Tennessee but actually a sex club (pics)

A Nashville, Tennessee, building registered as a church has been used as a sex club for swingers, investigators say after a graphic report from undercover inspectors.

The city of Nashville has filed a complaint against the owners of the Social Club for “maintaining a public nuisance by permitting acts of lewd conduct” and violating a state law banning sex clubs from operating within 1,000 feet of a school.

The longtime downtown swingers club, owned by Freedom 4 All Inc., underwent a conversion in 2015 when it relocated to a run-down office park in the community of Madison, calling itself a church because the new location is near the back of the private Goodpasture Christian School, The Associated Press reports.

Two codes inspectors paid $40 to enter the facility in March and filed affidavits detailing sex acts they witnessed within.

TN119

While inside, the pair counted at least 100 people as well as 12 rooms with either a bed or lounge chair inside. The lawsuit says some of the rooms had windows for viewing inside.

The Department of Codes employees said they saw patrons openly engaging in sexual contact and intercourse in the rooms and were even asked to photograph a couple’s activities inside “the Choir Room.”

Metro’s Zoning Administrator Bill Herbert said he was shocked by the investigators’ report.

“Maybe I’m naive. I did not expect it to be as graphic as it was,” Herbert said,

Herbert said it wasn’t until recently that the city was flagged of the club’s increased late night activity and blatant advertising for “Naughty Nights” every second Saturday of the month.

The city is seeking to close the club.

1. Jesus christ when he was alive he never practice christianity, he only bring islam

2. Jesus was never mention anything like christian when he was alive. But in Al-qur’an GOD called us muslim like Qur’an 3:102

3. Jesus christ was never go to church when he was alive and there is no single verse in the bible that say go to church. But in Al-qur’an Allah says we should go to “jummuah”

4. There is no single verse in the bible where the word “BIBLE” is mention. But in Al-qur’an there was so many places where GOD mention Al-qur’an, like qur’an 4:82

5. There was no single verse where GOD or jesus says u should go to “jerusalem” But in the Al-qur’an GOD say in suratul hajj that we should go to hajj if we have the power to go

Israel’s Reshet TV Documentary On T.B. Joshua’s Relocation (Video)

Preparations for Prophet T.B. Joshua’s relocation to Israel seem to be heating up with the airing of a documentary on national Israeli television about the impending arrival of the Nigerian cleric.

Reshet TV, one of the most successful television networks in Israel, aired an 11-minute feature on Joshua in Hebrew, detailing his recent visits to Israel and meetings with government dignitaries.

According to the video’s introduction aired on Isreali Channel 2, “the man responsible for 60% of the tourism in Nigeria announced that he is moving to Israel”.

The documentary, subsequently uploaded to YouTube, was punctured with clips of Joshua ministering on Emmanuel TV, along with his recent journey around Israel.

He is often seen in the company of Rabbi Yehuda Meshi-Zahav, the Founder of Israel’s award-winning rescue agency, ZAKA, who recently presented Joshua with an award in honour of his extensive humanitarian efforts.

“How did you get your power,” an Israeli journalist questioned Joshua in an interview, intrigued by the clips of ‘deliverance from demonic possession’ he viewed on Emmanuel TV.

“From my Father, Jesus, who was born in this land,” Joshua answered with a smile. “I am an inheritance of His grace.”

Interviewing foreign pilgrims who were undergoing baptism at the historical site of the Jordan River, the film-maker questioned a lady whether she had ever heard of T.B. Joshua.
“Well, I live in the US and I know him because he is popular in the US,” she responded.

News outlets and social media across Africa have been agog with news of Joshua’s move to Israel, several prominent Nigerian government figures calling on the cleric to rescind his decision.

Chris Okotie Attacks TB Joshua Over Israel Relocation, others react

TB
L-R Freeze, Pastors Okotie & Joshua

Flamboyant Nigerian Pastor Chris Okotie is the latest prominent voice to wade into the controversy over Prophet T.B. Joshua’s proposed relocation to Israel.

Speaking on Facebook, Okotie, who has long been an outspoken critic of Joshua, described the cleric as an attention-seeking “impostor”.

“He is controlled by a malevolent misanthropic spirit,” the pastor of Household of God International Ministries wrote on his official Facebook Profile under a news article he reposted detailing Joshua’s alleged relocation.

“His hypocritical jeremiad should be ignored. He is just another frustrated shaman seeking public sympathy,” Okotie wordily concluded.

However, followers of Okotie were surprisingly quick to rise to Joshua’s defence, commenting that the cleric had not been positioned to judge on such matters.

“Honestly, I do not think a brilliant man like Chris Okotie will castigate another who propagates God’s throne,” queried Tamaraudoubra Sultan Zimughan.

“On whose mandate is Okotie labelling T.B. Joshua a shaman? Go to both Churches and see whose is more of God? Look at T.B. Joshua’s life and that of Chris Okotie and see who is more fruitful”.

APC chieftain Timi Frank and PDP stalwart Femi Fani Kayode are among those who have joined the growing call for Joshua to remain in Nigeria, citing the spiritual, economic and social impact of his church.

Meanwhile, in a post on Joshua’s official Facebook page, the controversial cleric revealed the secret behind his ‘money’. According to him, the reward accrued from ministry cannot be quantified in material terms.

Speaking specifically about his foreign crusades, Joshua disclosed that he pays for the large majority of arrangements and does not touch the offerings collected during such events.

“My joy is to see people healed, delivered and blessed. That is my money. Each person that is delivered is more than $20,000 to me! That is the money God gives me – the joy to sleep in peace,” Joshua stated.

“You need to know what it means if God uses you to heal and deliver people,” the cleric continued. “If you know what it means – the joy in God using you to deliver people – you will never ask the people you deliver to bring money… If God uses you to remove the pain of one, you are more than a millionaire.”

According to the prophet cum philanthropist, “If money is your gain, you are robbing yourself. That money is insufficient – it cannot give you peace.”
