MTO News obtained a viral video capturing a controversial Christian Pastor named Prophet Sam Ojo. The Prophet demanded a piece of land from a church goer, before he would offer to "heal" her sick child. And as you can imagine, the video has gone viral.
In the video, Sam is heard insisting that the woman should donate a piece of land to his church - before her child can receive a "permanent healing."
The woman, clearly desperate, promised to give Prophet Sam her land.
Pastor Sam then seemed annoyed, and began speaking on a prior experience he had with a church member, who promised him land - but then changed his mind after Prophet Sam "healed" him.
He claims that he cursed on the man (who was a politician) and this career floundered.
In his words; “If I use my anointing on you and you take my tithe to another church, your life will be destroyed.”
He later told the woman that he doesn’t want a land in a poor area of the country - only in middle class neighborhoods.
The video is not in English:
In another instance, Prophet Ojo said to another member of his church, "If I use my anointing on you and you take my tithe to another church, your life will be destroyed,” he continued in his display of rage."
One particular Nigeria writer had this to say about Prophet Ojo:
I was sad because occurrences like this further drag the Christian faith in Nigeria into very unpleasant conversations but not surprised because hypnotism and emotional blackmail is largely common in several parts of Nigeria.
