MFM member denies being sent to Sowore by Olukoya
A member of Mountain of Fire Ministry, Dr Aaron Akinloye, said his pastor Dr Daniel Olukoya did not send him to the publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, for any reason.
In a recent video that has been circulating for some days now, Sowore was seen addressing a group of people with wrong information on a Maryland US lawsuit that has been won by MFM in a US court,
Sowore claimed, in the video, that the MFM general overseer sent someone to him for a meeting, as well as offered to bankroll his political ambition.
He also doubled down on the Maryland church case, which the church accused of publishing a malicious story without proper investigation.
Although Akinloye said he met with Sowore, he, however, insisted that he did not have such discussion with him. He wondered how he would have been chosen for such an assignment when he was not in the position to deal with such matters.
“I Dr Aaron Akinloye have never said that the General Overseer sent me to you,” said in a message posted to an online forum, Nairaland.
“You would recall that we were talking about UNILAG Alumni when you showed interest in the development of the school. Please, be very careful with the way you spread unconfirmed news.
“Mr Sowore, let me ask you, on what capacity would the G.O have sent me to you? I am not his media person. Please, be careful the way you are going about this.”
To further exonerate himself from Mr Sowore’s allegation Dr Aaron warned him further.
“Does he think he can sit down somewhere and begin to confuse the whole world? People that know him should call him to order,” Akinloye warned.
“Somebody who said he was ready to confess his sins before the man of God. Sowore, we know your history while in Unilag anyway. I am not surprised.”
According to Akinloye, Sowore’s claims that Dr D.K Olukoya offering to finance his political campaign is a mere media stunt to get attention. He noted that the general overseer neither gets involved in politics nor does he know that Sowore even has political ambition.
“The man of God who doesn’t get involved in politics. Does he even know that you are contesting for anything? If you are looking for attention, you won’t get it.
“I strongly advise you to desist from your antics, particularly the way you are dragging me into this mess. If you fail to desist from slandering my name, I will take a legal action against you.
According to sources close to the General Overseer, Sowore was given a very long period of grace. He was warned to desist from publishing slanderous, malicious and unconfirmed stories against Dr Olukoya and his church. But all the warnings fell on deaf ears and this left the church no other option than to seek legal redress.
