A United State based court in Baltimore County, presided over by Theresa Adams, has fined a Nigerian Blogger an historic $50,000 damages for defaming the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, Dr Daniel Olukoya.
Three MFM US-based pastors had filed a lawsuit against the Nigerian Blogger who recently relocated to America, after she made a defamatory statement, about the General Overseer of the Church in a video posted to her YouTube channel on November 28, 2023.
The court delivered its judgement in the matter with Case Number: C-03-CV-22-004424 and returned a unified verdict in favour of MFM USA and its three pastors, Grace Ugeh, Kunle Ladipo and Adekunle Adekola.
Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Chief Legal Adviser worldwide, Barr Davidson Adejuwon said while reacting to the court case that the judgement is only a further confirmation of the word of God that says He (Jesus Christ) has built His church and no gate of hell in any form shall prevail over it.
“Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries is not just any church. It is an Apostolic Revival church of Christ with a great end-time mandate divinely committed into the hand of a prepared prophet and servant of God, Dr D.K. Olukoya the General Overseer of the Ministry worldwide.
“There is certainly no way you deliberately and devilishly collide with such and not be grounded.”
“I will use this opportunity to implore the public and our media men and women to always do proper checks before publishing their stories or sharing lies and falsehood against the church of Christ and men and women of God to ensure proper due diligence is done on any story sent to them before going to the public with lies against reputable institutions and personalities.
“We will not fold our hands anymore on such unacceptable trends in our society.”
