The flamboyant and controversial pastor was killed on Friday at his residence

two days before the dedication of his baby.

The deceased, who started out his popular ministry in Port Harcourt before moving on to Abuja, was dogged by claims that he scammed some of his church members leading up to his killing.

In a tribute to the late pastor on social media, one of his devotees by the name, Nkiru Amaefula, gave slight insight into what may have provoked his killers to carry out the dastardly act.

She wrote: “Oh Jesus, this is just too much. What a wicked world. Your child dedication is on Sunday 5th of August and now you are no more. “They couldn’t even let you dedicate your innocent little son. What did you do to them that they couldn’t just forgive and give you second chance. Who will speak for the young generation ministers. Who will fight for us?”
