A magistrate court in Ekiti has granted bail to one pastor, Noah Abraham Adelegan of Christ High Commission Ministry, Omuo Oke-Ekiti.

Pastor Abraham allegedly told his church members that he was capable of taking them to heaven, saying Omuo-Ekiti was the gate of heaven where rapture would start, and charged the members to pay N310,000 before they could have access to heaven.

The charges which were read in parts: “That you Pastor Noah Abraham Adelegan on 27th April, at Omuo Oke-Ekiti in Omuo Magisterial District, did by pretense and intent to defraud, presented yourself to your congregation at Christ High Commission Ministry, Omuo, Oke-Ekiti, as capable of taking them to heaven before rapture upon payment of money ranging from N300,000 to N310,000 each.”

The prosecutor, Inspector Johnson Okunade, said the offence contravened Section 416 of the Criminal Law of Ekiti State 2012.

Adunni Olanipekun, counsel to the defendant, urged the court to grant his client bail, that he was ready to provide reliable sureties.

Though the application was not opposed by Inspector Okunade, he, however, ask the court to exercise its discretion in granting or refusing the bail.

The defendant was granted bail of N100,000 and two sureties by Magistrate Titilola Olaolorun and adjourned the case to May 24.
