Apostle Suleman Sacks Branch Pastor For Using Church Name Register For MMM

A pastor in one of the Nigerian branches of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide has been expelled from the ministry. 
According to a statement signed by Pastor David Apelorioye,
the head of admin at OFM, Pastor Joseph Aiyedun, who is in charge of
one the OFM branches in Aba, Abia State, was fired for participating in
the Mavrodi Mondial Movement (MMM), a ponzi scheme widely acclaimed to
be a satanic venture.

It should be recalled that the founder and president of the
OFM, Apostle Johnson Suleman, at a church service in November 2016,
warned members of his congregation against involving in MMM, calling it
‘demonic’.
The statement from the church reads thus; “The management
of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide is using this medium to react to a
news making the rounds on the social media regarding one of his pastors
who used the ministry’s name to register for the MMM scheme. Ordinarily,
the church would not have reacted to the story because of falsehoods
being published regularly by some blogs and news websites whose
credibility are questionable.  But after a thorough investigation by the
church authority, it was established that one of our branch pastors in
Aba, Pastor Joseph Aiyedun, indeed participated in the scheme.”
The statement adds that the erring pastor was sacked after a
thorough investigation and it was discovered that he used the name of
the church to register for MMM
, thereby denting the ministry’s image in
the public eye. It was gathered that the erring pastor would have just
been disciplined in line with the church rules if he had registered for
the scheme in his personal capacity but because he used the ministry’s
name for the scheme, he was asked to go. 
“The church authority decided to expel Pastor Aiyedun not
because he registered for the ponzi scheme but because he involved the
ministry’s name in the satanic adventure. And we discovered that he was
able to use the ministry’s name because he had access to the account of
his branch which itself is against the church’s guidelines and a fraud
likely to have been carried out in connivance with the branch’s account
department. We are still investigating further to unravel the whole
activities.”
The statement therefore appeals to the general public to
disregard any news being passed around about Omega Fire Ministries
involving in the MMM scheme or any scheme of its kind because it is not
true.
“Of the OFM’s 200 churches in Nigeria alone and its 800
branches in 51 nations of the world, it is possible for any of the
pastors to go astray and be corrected. In fact, we discovered that
Pastor Aiyedun, including some other members of OFM, did the scheme
before our father, Apostle Johnson Suleman made the warning last year
against MMM, but Pastor Aiyedun was fired because he did it with the
ministry’s name as the OFM rules forbid any of its pastors access to the
account  except people in the account department.”

It was gathered that to enable him look after his family
whilst he searches for other things to do in life, the church paid the
sacked pastor a full one year salary ahead on the instruction of Apostle
Suleman who was not available for comments at press time.
