A pastor in Delta State is said to have sold his church and congregation to another pastor before relocating abroad.
According to a report by Information Nigeria, the details of this unusual transaction remain a mystery, with many people wondering how such a sale could have occurred.
According to local residents, Pastor Samuel Ojo, the spiritual leader of the Graceful Abode Church in Delta State, allegedly brokered and handed over his entire ministry to Pastor Michael Ade, who had his own congregation.
Members of Graceful Abode Church were said to be shocked when they learned of the sudden change in leadership. The development, however, raised concerns about the ethics and integrity of religious leaders.
