The Delta State Police Commissioner, Zana Ibrahim, on Saturday paraded on Chinedu Strongson, 48, the founder and pastor of Gospel Fire Army Ministry, Nkwele-Ogidi, Anambra State, over alleged child abduction and trafficking in persons.

Nigerian Tribune reports that the Strongson, who is a popular radio preacher allegedly paid N400,000 for each of the children sold to him.

The pastor was arrested following investigations into a complaint by one Aisha Yahaya of how two ladies came to her house as police detectives sent by her husband serving at Ogwashi Uku prisons.

Yahaya said that she followed the ladies to a junction where they met one Abigail Nwakama, a.k.a Madam Cash, who gave her N3,500 to care of herself and buy clothes for her one-month old baby.

She added that the child was allegedly stolen from her by the group, which made her report the matter to the police, who swung into action and arrested the two ladies.

Detectives later arrested one Onyinye Nwakama, daughter of Madam Cash, at a drinking bar in Asaba.

Also arrested were Madam Cash (32 years) and Ifeoma Anyadike, (32) at Okpanam before they led detectives to Ogidi where the pastor was arrested.

Others arrested from different locations are David IkesinachiEbere Edwin, Adaeze Enyi and Chike Agwunenu.

The Commissioner said that two of the rescued children have been reunited with their families and the remaining are in an orphanage in Asaba.

The pastor has denied any involvement in child trafficking, saying that his business was to help humanity including payment of school fees for children.

      Only God knows His true servant… That’s why we must be watchful and pray without season.

    Many are called but few are chosen. Another why I feel sorry for those always looking for a ‘One man’ ⛪ with visions & prophesies. This type of perosn can do anything to attract memebers to his church May God save his soul.

    For some weeks now, “Pastor so and so” are part of bad news I read. Na wa ooo.
    Knowing how gullible our people are, evil people disguise as Pastors, hide under the platform of some church where nobody can detect their hiddwn agenda while they successfully carry out their wicked deeds.
    Be mindful of human beings. The bible describes the heart as “Desperately wicked” (Jeremiah 17:9)

    The word “Pastor” has been so bastardised in Nigeria.
    You see churches like. “Fire for fire brigade” ” My enemies must die now ministry'”
    Is there no governing body that actually makes sure a con man doesn’t just join several chairs together and say he’s started a ministry just to dupe people.
    As someone said there are more churches in Nigeria than factories.

    Jesus said in the bible, beware of the yeast of the Pharisees. So beware of, not only the pastors but of those who hide under the guise of religion to do evil of all kind.
