Bishop Emmanuel Esezobor, president of Fire House Church International, Nyanya, Abuja, has denied reports that he allegedly paid a trader to fake his death.
According to Bishop Esezobor, there is no iota of truth in the report and nothing could be farther from the truth.
The Bishop who expressed shock over the report maintained that the allegations could only be a figment of the imagination of the “faceless promoters”, NTA reports.
The report had alleged that a member, who was reportedly paid the sum of N500, 000 and kept in a coffin died before the “fake miracle” could be performed” at a crusade held at the National Stadium in Abuja.

But Bishop Esezobor, who denied holding crusade of any kind at the National Stadium let alone recording any of such death, posited that he is a victim of a calculated attempt by “agents of darkness, who are uncomfortable with his “great works” to tarnish his image and rubbish the gospel of Christ”. He insisted that attempt will fail as the ministry has continued to wax stronger than their expectations.
“We have not had a murder case in the Fire House Alter and all the branches we haven’t had a murder case for five years we don’t know where they are getting their stories from these are cheap talkers who are looking for popularity. God be praised. We preach Jesus we don’t preach self it has been Jesus all the way.” Bishop Esezobor stated.
He added: “We have not held any crusade at the Abuja stadium as the said rumour claimed. We are only planning to hold one next year February, 15 2017, when we will storm the National Stadium for healing service and I want everyone to be there to see the power and glory of God at work.”
While puncturing the claims of the accusers, the Pastor raised some posers: “If they said I paid somebody to fake his death to enable me perform a sham miracle and the person eventually died in the process, why is the identity of the supposed trader not in the public domain? Who are his relations and why are they not saying anything? Which police station did they take me to and which cell was I detained in? Who is the IPO? All these are questions begging for an answer.” He stated.
“Challenges have made me a champion and I see it as a stepping stones to greater things. Healing is real and I preach it, the Bible says: “I shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. I have seen God do mighty things in righteousness and this is a big motivation coming at the end of the year making us more sensitive and prayerful. We know that the devil is after the body of Christ and I pray for all the pastors and call on them to go back to their prayer alters as we are overcomers.” Bishop Esezobor stated.
