Church members attack journalists for covering Pastor’s Fraud case in Court (VIDEO)

Magistrate Eke Spiff, Wednesday, caused commotion in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, when she ordered all journalists who came to cover a case of obtaining by tricks against the founder of the God is Able Mega Fire Ministry, Apostle Abiekunogho, out of her court.

Abiekunogho is standing trial for allegedly obtaining a Toyota SUV and 20,000 Naira from a member of his church, Seiyefa Sayou, through a false prophecy.

It was gathered that when the case resumed for hearing, the visibly angry magistrate ordered reporters to leave her court.

She said: “All journalists should leave this court. We don’t do sensational here, the last time you came here this issue was reported in all the media, and this made people to call my phone from all over the country, so much messages in my whatsapp. All the journalists leave my court,”

The order by the magistrate emboldened the church members sympathetic to their pastor to threaten the journalists, who left the courtroom for the premises.

It was later learnt that the pastor reportedly asked his members to deal with any journalist who tried to capture him with camera.

Shortly after the court proceeding, it was gathered the pastor was shielded by his members to deter journalists from taking his photograph.

But as he made his way to a waiting vehicle, some journalists were said to have taken some of his pictures.
