Nigerian Pastor ask members to pay N310,000 to ‘prepare for the end of the world”
Vondigest reports that the pastor of Christ High Commission Ministry, also known as Royal Christ Assembly, Kaduna State, Ade Abraham, has convinced members of his church to pay N310,000 each, relocate to a camp in Ekiti State with him, in order to “prepare for the end of the world”.
A source related to one of Abraham’s congregants told FIJ that the pastor first relocated to Ekiti State from Kaduna State, where he was formerly based in 2020.
The source said he then later returned to Kaduna State in April to ask each member of his church to pay him N310,000 before they would be allowed to follow him to Omuo-Ekiti, where “the gate of heaven will open for all of them to fly to heaven”.
According to the source, Abraham also assured the members that they would all ‘ascend to heaven together from the location in Ekiti’.
“My relative has also asked her daughter, who is studying abroad, to return to Nigeria, or else the pastor (Abraham) would make her commit an offence over there that would see her go to jail,” the source said.
This online platform was able to obtain a WhatsApp conversation from FIJ that backed up the source’s claim. It was the conversation that reflected what the pastor’s follower told her daughter.
“Please Elizabeth, if there is how you will help yourself to come back, I will be glad [sic]. Don’t let daddy put any one of you in trouble.”
FIJ also spoke to a member of the church who is currently ‘camping’ with the pastor in Ekiti. The member, who wished not to be named, told FIJ that Abraham’s campers still go about their normal businesses on regular days.
The follower also said “saved members” left their “past lives” behind in Kaduna to join the pastor in Ekiti on April 6. He confirmed that they would be at the camp with the pastor “until the day of rapture”.
According to the member. Abraham still holds regular church services on Sundays and Wednesdays.
“We are not coming back. I can’t explain in details,” the member said.
“We are going to make rapture from here. We are going to a heavenly place.”
FIJ made attempts to reach the pastor for comments, but he did not respond to calls or reply text messages sent to him at press time.
He, however, sent this reporter pictures of his car he intends selling off.
