The suspended General Superintendent of Assemblies of God Church Nigeria, Rev. Paul Emeka, has been arrested and detained by the Nigerian Police Force for alleged certificate forgery and parading himself as a professor of Theology.
Punch Reported that “Rev. Emeka who was interrogated by the Force Criminal Investigation Department, Abuja, on Wednesday, may be arraigned in court on Friday. If convicted, he may be jailed for between 10 and 21 years”.
The cleric was recently sacked as the leader of the AGC in what has been described as a conspiracy of the past leadership to cover up their dirty tracks and install their anointed son Rev. Chidi Okoroafor in place of Paul Emeka.
Following the installation of Rev. Chidi Okoroafor as the General Superintendent of Assemblies of God Church Nigeria, a dissatisfied member of the church who lives in America hinted our reporters that “Chidi Okoroafor is not a better replacement for Paul Emeka”. She further exposed how Rev. Chidi Okoroafor made sexual advances at her when he travelled to preach in the United States claiming that she has evidence to that effect.
Africa Thisday has made efforts to reach Rev. Chidi Okoroafor to hear his side of the story but our efforts proved abortive.
However, Punch reported that “Rev. Emeka confessed to Police interrogators that he purchased the professorship certificate from one Prof. Okoro, who was deported from the United States to Nigeria”.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu, confirmed the detention of the cleric to Punch and his planned arraignment in court for certificate forgery.
He said, “I am aware that Rev. Emeka is with us and he was interrogated on Wednesday by detectives for parading himself as a professor. He may be arraigned in court on Friday.”
