Prophetess, Husband In Police Net Over Attempts To Eliminate Couple Over Property
Posted on August 4, 2022
A female cleric, Prophetess Ngozi Okoye and her husband Pastor Cosmos of the Greater Glory Tabernacle Church, located at No. 26 Afurugbin off Ijegemo Road, Ijegun area of Lagos, are now in Police net after they allegedly secretly sold a property worth over N20m belonging to a couple, who were members of their Church and had planned to eliminate them in order to cover up the crime.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the house in question is located at Jesutedo Street off Community Road, Ijegun area of Lagos.
It was gathered that the couple, Mrs. Buchi Ejiofor and her husband, Tony, bought the property for N6.5m some years ago and entrusted it to Prophetess Ngozi as their spiritual director before she conspired with her husband, Cosmos and sold it.
When the couple discovered that Prophetess Ngozi and her husband, Cosmos, had sold their property, they started planning how to eliminate them in order to cover up the dastardly act while the couple stopped attending their church and fled.
Following threats to their lives, the couple wrote a petition to the AIG Zone 2 Command, Onikan, Lagos, through their Lawyer from Onwubualili Chambers against Prophetess Ngozi and her husband, Cosmos, asking the Police for intervention to protect them and recover their property.
In the petition, the complainants stated that in 2018, they gave Prophetess Ngozi and her husband, Cosmos the sum of N6.5m to buy the property located at 6 Jesutedo Street off Community Road in Ijegun for them and the Dead of Agreement was prepared in the complainants’ favour.
However, Prophetess Ngozi and her husband deliberately seized the original Deed of the Agreement, which they used to purchase the land, whereas the couple had the photocopy of the agreement.
Meanwhile, Prophetess Ngozi had been collecting the arrears of rent from the property for the past two years but did not remit the money to the couple before they visited the place and discovered that Ngozi and her husband have carted away the GeePee storage tank in the compound, which gave suspicion that something was fishing.
When they confronted Prophetess Ngozi, she then informed them that they had sold the property according to divine direction and used the money for an undisclosed business and since then, they have been threatening the couple’s lives.
Narrating what happened, Mrs. Buchi stated that she and her husband, Tony, were devoted members of the Church for over 16 years while she was working and both of them were ordained as Pastors in the Church.
She said that they trusted Prophetess Ngozi to the extent that she was their spiritual mother and whatever they wanted to do, they must inform her for spiritual guidance for those years.
She expressed shock over what they discovered because whatever Ngozi told them, they usually believe because they considered them as Pastors who can never mislead them until this issue happened.
She explained that when she lost her job and asked Prophetess Ngozi what she will do next, she muted the idea to sell some part of the land and raise some money to start business, she agreed and asked her to do so.
However, Prophetess Ngozi and her husband, Cosmos, sold the the whole property including the building and empty land and did not tell them or remit the money to them until they discovered.
She said that Ngozi and her husband sold off the property and signed the documents as the real owners of the property whereas the two Deed of Agreement he procured from the lawyer was bearing her name, Buchi and that of her husband, Tony.
She stated that after they had discovered, Ngozi and her husband started threatening their lives and was heard boasting that they know those in authority both in the Nigeria Police and Government and that nothing will happen.
Mrs. Buchi is appealing to the well meaning Nigerians to come to their support in order to recover their property from Prophetess Ngozi and her husband, Cosmos, who were said to have sworn that they will deal with the couple for daring to demand for their property.
Meanwhile, the Igbo traditional ruler for Ijegun and Ijedodo Kingdom, Eze Chika Nwokedi, has stepped into the matter and described what happened as shocking and wondered how people who called themselves ministers of God would embark on such wicked act.
He explained that when he heard about it, he summoned Prophetess Ngozi and her husband to his palace in order to resolve the matter but Ngozi refused to show up and matter is now before the Police to investigate and recover the property for the victims.
When our correspondent visited Ngozi and her husband at their house located at No. 9 Taiwo Oladiran Street, Ijegun, Lagos, they declined to speak to the reporter and confirmed that the matter was before the Police.
