Police arrests prophet for swindling Church members with fake prophecies
A 45-year-old self-acclaimed prophet, Bright Ossai in Asaba, Delta State has been arrested by the operatives of the Delta state police command over his serial fake prophecies, and for allegedly defrauding unsuspecting members of the public.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Muhammad Mustafa, who confirmed that the prophet was arrested following a petition, submitted by some of his victims, said that “the police is holding the prophet based on a petition against him and his fake prophecies, including ways of defrauding members of the public. He is currently being interrogated by police detectives at the State CID handling the petition.”

According to the information gathered, the prophet, who is said to be a member of a popular deliverance church in Asaba, had allegedly duped many unsuspecting members of the church through litany of prophecies that were not true.
While speaking with newsmen, the prophet in charge of the church, Prophet Godfrey Irevbude, said, “We discovered he was denting the image of our church with fake prophecies, we resolved at the board meeting to write the police, and to look into his activities. He conducts deliverance without my knowledge, many of the prophecies he gave were never true.


“I made him an official of the church, instead of doing what the bible says, he started prophesying to people. Even when my wife was pregnant, he said she will deliver a baby boy at the end, my wife delivered a baby girl, that was what I begged God for We suspected him, instead he resolved to threatening my members’ lives including those he took money from. So, we wrote the police to clean our names, he lies a lot.”
Meanwhile, the suspect, speaking from the police station, said: “I’m very sorry, it is the devil’s work, I wanted to get rich, and be well known like other great men of God”.
