Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry and the general overseer, Pastor Daniel Olukoya has debunked claims of jailing a pastor for nine years.

The clergyman and the church stated that they didn’t jail their former pastor, Mr. Femi Jimoh and Caleb Oloruntele.

It would be recalled that the convener of RevolutionNow, Mr. Omoyele Sowore, called for the arrest of Dr. Daniel Olukoya, through the Sahara Reporters. He stated that the pastor be arrested for allegedly arresting pastor Femi Jimoh for nine years without trail.

Pastor Jimoh, in a report stated the church kept him in prison for nine years, over alleged robbery.

Chief Legal Adviser, Davidson Adejuwon, speaking on behalf of the church and the general overseer during a press conference, revealed that the pastor was only arrested and granted bail, He also added the bail was granted. However, he said the family failed to produce sureties as witnesses for them to be released.

Citing some of the offences committed by Mr. Femi Jimoh, the lawyer said, “While at the ministry of MFM as a pastor, Femi, had serially got himself in one offence or the other at every branch he was posted to serve. He was being redeployed back to the headquarters for internal discipline after which he would be posted out believing he had changed.

“As such a case of planned armed attack on credible intelligence against the church which could have led to the death of any member cannot be treated and handled internally by the church.

“We have a duty to report such to the law enforcement agency saddled with the responsibilities to investigate and deal with such issues. And that was exactly what we did as a responsible church.

“All other events that transpired thereafter at the police station and during the trial were completely out of the control of the church because being a criminal matter, it became a case between the State government and the defendants.

“MFM Church and its General Overseer, Dr. Olukoya remain committed to the welfare as well as spiritual and physical wellbeing and development of its members and the humanity at large.

“MFM is a responsible church that takes the welfare and security of all its members very seriously.

“While we continue to show kindness and forgiveness to our erring staffs and rehabilitating such erring staff, MFM and its General Overseer will not use its fold to harbour or hide anyone with any criminal intent or motive capable to harm others,” he said as the MFM church denies jailing pastor for nine years.
