The last may not have been heard about the reported involvement of Church leaders, Bishops and Apostles in the unveiling of the running mate to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Abuja on Wednesday as another Pastor, Bishop Dr Shedrack Ediruke of the Rivers State-based Unbeatable God Ministries, has threatened N500billion lawsuit over the matter.
Recall that the General Overseer of the World Wide Mantle Assembly in Nigeria, Apostle Ekapong Ubi had earlier cried out over the inclusion of his name among Pastors at the unveiling of Senator Kashim Shetima as the running mate to the APC’s Asiwaju Bola Ahmed.
And, Bishop Ediruke, in a telephone chat with our reporter on the issue, said he was not in Abuja on that day and that with the inclusion of his name in the list of those who were at that event, unexplainable mischief was indeed intended.
His word: “This is to inform the general public and indeed all Nigerians that I was not in Abuja to attend Senator Shetima’s unveiling, either in the body or the spirit. Nigerians and indeed the whole world should disregard the information that I attended that gathering. I didn’t attend any APC vice presidential candidate unveiling in Abuja
“Now concerning my phone number which they put alongside my name in that devilish list on the internet, I want the world to know that the said phone number appears on all my social media handles, and mischief makers could copy it and do whatever they like with it.
“I am not an APC or PDP member. In short, I don’t belong to any political party. The inclusion of my name in that list is mischievous and satanic. May the blood of innocent Nigerians that are being killed every day in this country haunt those who included me as being a party to their evil plan.
“In fact, APC should be ready to meet me in court as I shall file N500 billion lawsuits against them for damaging my hard-earned reputation and image, and for using my phone numbers for deceit without my permission whatsoever,” Bishop Ediruke stated.
He said he was assembling a team of lawyers to look into the matter with a view to establishing a case of character assassination against the masterminds of what he described as a crime against his reputation, his family and ministry.
