General Overseer of Sufficient Grace Church, Pastor Okechukwu Joseph, has lamented that he has not been able to make enough income to settle the money he borrowed to build his church.
Pastor Okechukwu, who has been arrested by men of the State Intelligent Bureau in Lagos, admitted that he collected N308,000 from his female church member, Miss Bridget Nwankwo to do some reconstruction work in his church where he was before he relocated.
“What really happened is that I collected N308,000 from her to do some reconstruction work in my church where we were before I relocated, due to circumstances beyond my control.
“I paid her N100,000. I was not able to pay the remaining N208,000, because money was not coming to me as before. She later reported me to SIB. The church I am pastoring is a growing church.
“If you look at my body physique you will think that I have money. I had problems and that was why I had no money to pay her. I had a very serious financial problem.”
“I am married with two children. I am from Okwe Oboro, Umuahia, Abia State. I know the complainant Miss Bridget Nwankwo as a member of my church. I had no misunderstanding with her.”
