The leader of Goodness and Mercy Ministries, Prophet Freddy, has caused outrage after he made his congregants purchase anointed umbrellas for $10 (about N5000) each..
According to Prophet Freddy, the divine umbrellas will protect everyone who has it from lightning and storms during the rainy season and also had the ability to protect congregants from evil spirits.
Prophet Freddy said;
God instructed me to pray for these umbrellas and there will be no member of this church who will buy the umbrella and get struck by lightning or will be tormented by demons. 2017 is a year of overtaking and this year we shall overtake if you have faith, God will use these umbrellas to perform miracles, signs and wonders,”
According to H-Metro, the joyous church members sauntered to the altar in their numbers to buy the umbrellas.
There was also stampede and some people got injured when the pastor offered to give one of the umbrellas out for free.
One of the ladies who was part of the scuffle, said she was injured as she tried to get the umbrella.
“I was pushed by another woman who also wanted the umbrella and I dislocated my arm but I don’t regret what happened to me and I believe I will be healed since I was injured in the house of God. I was not doing something wrong to anyone so I know these injuries will come to pass,”
