There is fire on the MFM mountain.

Daniel Olukoya, the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM) has been alleged to have falsely affirmed himself to be a legal resident of the State of Maryland in the United States for business purposes.

Olukoya was said to have made the false claim in the Articles of Incorporation of the church in Baltimore in 2002.  

In the Articles of Incorporation filed with the State of Maryland Department of Assessment and Taxation, Olukoya claimed to be a Resident Agent for Service for MFM Baltimore, and personally signed the Articles in that capacity. (See certified copy of the Articles of Incorporation in story).

The laws of the State of Maryland require all corporations or organizations applying for registration in the State to designate a person or organization, who must be a legal resident of the State of Maryland, as Resident Agent for Service. 

The Resident Agent for Service of any organization is primarily to receive court and other legal processes for and on behalf of the organization.

Contrary to these stipulations, investigation reveals that Olukoya is not and has never been a legal resident of the State of Maryland.

The Articles of Incorporation containing the man of God’s false declaration came to light in the filings before the Circuit Court for Prince Georges’ County of the State of Maryland in an ongoing lawsuit instituted by MFM International (Lagos) against Lawrence Adetunji and Ronke Adetunji, two former pastors of MFM Bowie, Maryland. 

Also joined in the suit are 11 former members of the church, as well as Christ the Truth Ministries.  

In their Motion to compel the testimony of Pastor Olukoya (see a copy of the Motion below), the defendants stated that they requested his presence at deposition or trial via a subpoena served through the plaintiff’s (Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries International’s) attorney, but the plaintiff refused to produce Olukoya for that purpose.
