A notorious social media content creator, Mr. Chizorom Harrison Ofoegbu, also known as Ijele, has been arrested by the Nigeria Police Force over his threat to kill the founder and spiritual director of Zion Prayer Movement, Evangelist Ebuka Obi.

This is contrary to social media reports that Ofoegbu is being detained for accusing Evangelist Ebuka of performing fake miracles. According to police sources, the influencer is actually being remanded by the court on Terrorism charges.

In a video he posted on his Facebook page, Ofoegbu, appearing in military camouflage, threatened to kill Ebuka Obi and cut off his head. He also threatened to kill any police officer who attempts to arrest him.

“That criminal Ebuka Obi of Zion, if I don’t kill you and cut off your head, let trailer kill me on the road and your family will not even save you.” Referring to any policeman who comes to his house to arrest him, Ofoegbu boasted “Any mumu policemen who dare to come to my house to arrest me, they will shoot and shoot, before my own bullet will finish, I have people who will join me in shooting and we’ll fight to finish“.

In another post, Ofoegbu carried a placard  on which he wrote “Evangelist Ebuka Obi is a criminal and liar” and tagged all the miracles in Zion as deceits, urging the police to arrest him for turning his religious institution into a business enterprise. “Arrangee Master Ebuka Obi, your scam is coming to an end”, he said in the video.

The Zion Legal Team had petitioned the IGP on the threat to the life of Evangelist Ebuka and cyber-bullying. 

Subsequently, the police in Abuja invited Ofoegbu to their station for an alleged case of criminal intimidation, threat to life, cyberstalking, and cyberbullying. He is currently being remanded in prison custody pending his trial in court.
