Assemblies of God church crisis deepens as police invade homes

Yesterday, crack detectives from Force Headquarters invaded the homes of Charles Osueke, Chidi Okoroafor, Vincent Alaje and Tony Emelike.

A Facebook user, Chinedu Jumbo Azubike, reported the story.

According to the story, the police invaded the homes of these AGC leaders for onward parceling to Abuja for questioning.

The report has it that Osueke, lsangadighi, Chidi Okoroafor and others met as EC members to remove Rev. Prof. Paul Emeka as Registered Trustee of AG Nigeria.

The group said Prof, Emeka had forged his certificate.

They forwarded a list of board members to CAC to get a Certificate. The list did not contain Prof. Emeka’s name.

Assemblies of God Nigeria under the leadership of Rev. Prof. Paul Emeka, in a swiftly protested.

CAC discovered that the case was still pending in Court. They promptly withdrew the Certificate.


Prof. Paul Emeka’s caucus within the church says he remains a Registered Trustee of AG Nigeria; until a competent court says otherwise.

The Okoroafor caucus had brought back retired AGC pastors and wanted to make them trustees of the church.

The source also claimed that the second reason the Okoroafor’s caucus are wanted by the police is that they squandered pastors’ pension funds.

The said funds run in billions.

When police officers got to the home of Osueke, the family members confronted the officers.

They refused to open the gate. The Police Men from Abuja insisted that the gate must be opened. They had their way.

They moved to Alaje and Chidi Okoroafor’s house. But they did not find them either.

Their lawyers promised to bring these men in person to Force Headquarters, Abuja on 24TH Jan, 2017!

The lingering crisis in AGC has become an embarrassment to PFN and CAN.
