Security agencies have been urged by the Chairman of Okene Local Government Area of Kogi State, Engr. Abdulrazaq Muhammad, to investigate the founder of New Jerusalem Deliverance Ministry, Pastor Peter Michonza.
Following netizens’ calls on the state government, the Christian Association of Nigeria, and the Nigerian Medical Association to checkmate the activities of the pastor after the video of him selling “bulletproof water” went viral.
The Chairman, in a statement, noted that the directive for investigation became necessary “after some of his alleged ungodly activities were published on social media by concerned members of the public.”
While appreciating the public for blowing the whistle and exposing the alleged atrocities of Mr Peter in the name of church activities, Muhammad promised that details of the investigation would be made public in due course.
Pastor Peter Michonza went viral on social media over allegations of running Labour wards for pregnant women in his Church and selling “bulletproof” water to the people, amongst other medically unacceptable practices that have led to many deaths.
Michonza had earlier, in a protest rally with his members in Okene, called for the release of International Musician, R.Kelly who was recently jailed over child pornography and rape allegations.
