Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm says the Holy Book.
But it seems the founder of God is Able Mega Fire Ministry, Opolo, Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, Apostle Kingsley Abiekunogho, has run short of anointing.
He was arraigned for allegedly offering a fake prophecy and obtaining by trickery.

Sayou said, “After several months, things got worse for me. So, I asked the pastor to return my vehicle because many months had passed without any form of financial increase.
“When the pastor refused to return the SUV to me, I reported to the police. The pastor was invited. When the pastor got to the police station, he said he had sold the car which I bought N3.9m for N1.5m.
“When the person who bought the car was contacted, he asked for N3m to release the car. But the police refused and ordered him to bring it. He later brought the car to the station after the pastor was detained.”
The Magistrate, Spiff, ordered Abiekunogho to produce the guest minister in court at the next hearing while the case was adjourned till April 4, 2018.
