Pastor Sign Fireman who was enmeshed in a ritual murder scandal last week when an accused murderer, Ikechukwu Friday fingered him as the brain behind the killing of a 12 year-old girl, was granted bail on Saturday, 11th January, 2014, held a thanksgiving ceremony the next day in his church and according to those who attended the event, the man of God turned his arrest and subsequent release into a money-spinning prayer point in his church.
We hear that the church, Perfect Christianity Ministries, Surulere, Lagos, was thrown into festivity as his members, friends and well-wishers thronged the place to rejoice with the man of the moment and he actually turned the occasion into a money spinner.
The reports had it that he actually said that his arrest for the ritual offense was God’s way of advertising the church to attract more worshipers. As members gave testimonies, the event was then turned into an avenue to collect offering.
After one particular testimony praising the Pastor reportedly said; “God will use your shame to announce you. If you want that to be your portion, come forward now with your special seed,” and that motivated congregation shoved their way to the altar, tossing notes at feet of his feet.
Towards end of the session, the Apostle told the story of how he became the pillar of finance in his own family after he ‘sowed a seed’ of N150, 000 in another church.
He touched three different poles in the church and called out to the congregation to pay the sums of N100, 000, N30, 000 and N10, 000 and touch the respective poles with him so that they could become pillars of finance in their own families as well.
