An indigene of Abraka, Ethiope East Local Government of Delta State, based in the United Kingdom (UK), Mrs. Rachel Anayo Nwombasi, has appealed to her former pastor, Dapo Adegboyega, in charge of the UK branch of World Evangelism Bible Church, WEBIC (before it shut down), to pay back a loan of 198, 000 Pounds she helped him collect from Halifax Bank, UK, eight years ago.
Rachel, a trained nurse now was a pastor in under him many years ago before she left for another ministry.
A close relative of Rachel who spoke to Oasis Magazine (OM) on the matter under conditions of anonymity, said the fact that Adegboyega is a cleric made Rachel consider his loan request, saying that the agreement signed with the bank has been broken.
The said pastor hails from Sango, Ibadan Nigeria.
According to the relative, the pastor has refused to reply her lawyer’s countless letters, adding that the bank is furious over the issue.
“The police and the fraud department in the UK are all aware and know how they scam people here,” she added.
She continued: “The father of Dapo, Prophet Samson Adegboyega, Founder, Salvation Proclamations Anointed Church (SPAC), Ibadan is also aware of the whole issue and did nothing about it. Even Dapo’s wife, Lola Adegboyega and brother, Tobi Adegboyega are all in this scam together.”
“Rachel is looking for a way to contact the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) or any pastor’s organization to help her compel him to pay this loan,” she said.
“To tell you how close she is to the Adegboyegas, anytime Prophet Samson goes to the UK to minister, they always ministered together and if he does not see her, he will not minister. She was like a daughter to them all.
“Her former pastor has kept on promising to pay for over five years now. He said he wants to build a church with the money. No church was built. After taking the loan and he refused to pay, he now ran to his father’s church.”
Based on findings, the initial sum was 110, 000 Pounds. The interest added made it 198, 000.
Rachel has been paying the interest on the loan, while the pastor is said to be on the run after his church closed down.
OM gathered that if not for the lockdown, he would have since returned to Nigeria.
When contacted, Prophet Samson Adegboyega said he was not in the know of the while issue but said it was mentioned to him many years ago.
The cleric said “it was a lie from the pit of hell that Dapo was planning to come back to Nigeria.”
“His family is in the UK. What is. he coming to do in Nigeria? The courts are there and I expect her to take him to court,” he opined.
