– The suspect used fake prophecy to lure his victims to the church


Delight Arinze Okorie, a 45-year-old pastor in charge of Watered Ground Ministry, has been arrested by the police for many crimes including fraud, attempted murder and robbery.
Okorie who claimed to have been in pastoral ministry for 10 years and was on the run for sometime now, he is presently cooling his heels in the custody of the Imo state police com­mand, Owerri, Daily Sun reports.
He said: “I have been in pastoral ministry for over 10 years. When some of my members or the friends they bring, come to tell me about their problems, I always give them fake prophecies. If I discover that they have mon­ey, I use the opportunity to rob them by setting them up with the fake prophecies,” he told a Sunday Sun reporter in Owerri.
Taiwo Laka­nu, the Imo state commissioner of police, said the suspect deployed strategies in deceiving, robbing and attempting to murder one member of the church, 35-year-old Mrs. Chioma Oleka by falsely claiming that she was possessed with marine spirit.
The police boss further revealed that on May 25, 2016, Okorie lured Oleka to Nwangele river, where she was to ostensibly undergo special deliverance prayer. The lady drove her Lexus SUV to keep the appointment for prayers and deliverance.
He said: “As we were praying on the bridge, I went to the back of the vehicle and picked up a machete. I gave her several cuts all over her body with the intention to kill her. Then I pushed her from the top of the bridge into the river for her to drown. Some members of my gang, who pretend to be members of my church, who went with me then escaped with the SUV, when we sighted a police patrol team.”
Unfortunately for Okorie and the gang, Oleka mirac­ulously survived the vicious attack and fall into the river as she did not drown. Rather she pretended to have died.
Recalling her fortuitous survival of the horrendous experience she passed through, Oleka said:
“Before this thing hap­pened I had been attending Watered Ground Ministry, the church headed by Pastor Okorie. He always prophe­sied in the church and one day he said that I had a mer­maid (marine or mammywa­ter) spirit. He said I had to go for special deliverance prayer not knowing that he wanted to rob and murder me. During the prayer ses­sion, he suddenly pushed me from the top of the bridge into the river. He gave me machete cuts thinking that I would die. But a police pa­trol team rescued me, took me to the hospital. I think I have learnt my lesson, that there are many false pastors all over the place; we need God’s intervention.”
When Oleka began to recover from the attack while in the hospital, she recounted what happened and gave the police the registration number of the car.
During interrogation, he revealed his alleged past escapades in crime, robbery, kidnapping and murder.
With informa­tion obtained from Okorie and the other members of his gang, the police recovered the Lexus SUV as well as the arms and ammunition of the gang.
