Disgraced former General Superintendent of Assemblies of God, Rev. Prof. Paul Emeka has explained that he procured his professorship certificate from one Professor Okoro.

Rev. Emeka (pictured) was one of the two fake professors who submitted an application for licence to establish a university named Nigeria-British University to the National University Commission (NUC), and were invited by the NUC for a routine interview where it was discovered that their claims of being professors were false.professor 2

Sources said Rev. Paul Emeka is in police custody at the Force Criminal Investigation Department, Abuja for certificate forgery and for parading himself as a professor of Theology.

It was learnt that he confessed to Police interrogators that he purchased the professorship certificate from one Prof. Okoro, who was deported from the United States to Nigeria.

His sack from the Assemblies of God Church were due to allegations that he withdrew N200 million from the Pension Fund without due process, spending N250 million for the alleged acquisition of a property in Germany without the approval of the Executive Committee (EC), false claims to proprietorship of the Evangel University, false claim to the rank of Professor, and use of the same after his name with the attendant embarrassment to the church, among others.

  1. Pastors are human beings. They can disappoint at any point, even deny Jesus the way Peter of old did without looking back or having remorse when the cock crow. Its only God the Almighty that does not disappoint. So, trust no one and make sure you marry your bible for what is written therein.

  2. the Lord definately will purge His church of all this fake elements parading themselves as pastors to defraud innocent worshippers
