Following reports in some sections of the media that the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries wrongly purchased the land that housed its Prayer City, the General Overseer of the church, Dr. Daniel Olukoya, has dismissed such reports saying the church bought the land genuinely for authorized owners.
The camp, popularly referred to as Prayer City, is located along Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.
Olukoya, who spoke during the December edition of the monthly ‘Power Must Change Hands’ programme of the church on Saturday, said the church had a genuine Certificate of Occupancy of the land.
Olukoya said those fighting the church over the land ownership were not the true owner of the land.
He said, “I want to clear the air on negative reports about the MFM that has been circulating on the social media which is that the MFM is not the rightful owner of the land on which the Prayer City is situated. The report is untrue and misleading. The MFM has many enemies and many friends. Those who like the light will like the church while those who detest truth and light will hate the church.
“I wish to assure you that MFM has been here (at this location) for 18 years and we have a Certificate of Occupancy obtained from the government. In fact, we paid twice for the land on which the Prayer City is situated. We paid to OPIC, and then the rightful owners, which were confirmed to us by the government. So, those that are now saying they are the rightful owners are not saying the truth.”
The GO however urged members not to be dissuaded by any false alarm as raised in the media. He said the church was fully in possession of genuine document validating its ownership of the land.
