A popular Prophet, Rev. Paul Abam of Word Based Prophetic & Deliverance Ministries (a.k.a City of Deliverance), in Ugep, Yakurr local government area of Cross River State has confessed that he bury charms in people’s house to perform miracles.
Abam who was caught while burying charms in his cousin’s house in Itigidi in Abi local government area of Cross River State, made the confession earlier this week after being paraded on a local handcuffs and plantain leaves.
He said: “after I bury the charms, the people will be forced to come to me for liberation as I would have to go back there to dig out the charms I had earlier buried. It enables me sell my oil, it’s a business. I don’t harm anyone, I only collect money”.
A source who spoke under anonymity with newsmen during the parade of the prophet on Monday, June 15, 2020, said Rev. Abam has been deceiving people in the guise of being a “real man of God ” but they have discovered he is fake and fetish.
“He goes around with his men of God, who are like his foot soldiers that gathered the information for him on how to lure the victims.
“Then they bury charms on people’s property and make them believe they are charms from perceived enemies and if the people are gullible or desperate they fall for his trick.
“He has sold olive oil and other items for as high as N3000 and he would have sold nothing less than 250,000 bottles.
“The latest one was when he was caught burying charms at the factory of one of our sons in Itigidi, they hatched a plan to lure him and milk him off, unfortunately, they were seen planting the charms.
“When they were caught we had to parade him in our traditional way so that our people will see and know who is behind their challenges because a lot of people have fallen victim.
“When he plants charms people pay N55,000 to clear the charms, there was a principal he sold oil to for N800,000 and more people who heard about the incident from other communities are speaking out”, the eyewitness said.
PARADISE NEWS gathered that Abam was a pastor at Presbyterian Church, Ugep, but the greed and hunger for money and fame led him to go open his own church – since the former don’t indulge in such an act.
Recently, a few members of his church have made an attempt to prove how innocent their spiritual leader is. Some have even claimed he was set up, not minding the video evidence where Rev Paul accepted to his atrocities and the confession his boys equally made on how he asked them to perpetrate those acts. All their arguments points to the fact that they want the Church reopened.
