Olumba: Worshippers Reply Pastor Ibiyeomie for Labelling Church a Shrine

After labelling their worship centre as a “shrine”, the leader of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (BCS), Olumba Olumba Obu and his teeming worshippers have expressed their disgust towards the founder of Salvation Ministries, Pastor David Ibiyeomie.

The group in public enlightenment in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, on what BCS stands for, faulted insinuations that Ibiyeomie made about a month ago.

The Presidential Bethel (Branch) of the BCS in the GRA Port Harcourt was demolished in March 2009. The clergy claimed that it happened because it was induced by a prayer curse he placed on the worship centre.

Edet Archibong, the Spokesman of the BCS, described such a statement as most shocking, saying that it was unbelievable to hear a man of God claim that the worship centre was demolished because it was a shrine.

“That he called on God and God caused bulldozers to demolish it. Most ungodly, most slanderous. Ibiyeomie knows his claim has no basis whatsoever and has nothing to do with God.

“The worship centre was a donation from late former Rivers Governor, Medford Okilo, in appreciation of what God did for him through Olumba. In 2005, one of Okilo’s sons came intending to take over the property. Obviously, he knew BCS did not follow up official acquisition via a deed of gift, and so no documentary proof of ownership.

“The Chief’s son bent on taking the property, had his way, and the property demolished March 2009 after the father passed July 2008. But the demolition did not make Olumba go into extinction. Another property was acquired and worshipers are joyfully worshipping. Many more branches have been established, BCS growing from strength to strength within the last few months,” Archibong added.

He further stated that since Olumba has not gone into extinction, then by Ibiyeomie’s own words, his church (Ibiyeomie’s) is not His (God’s) own, judging by his comment.

“Now has that church (Salvation Ministries) been proven to be owned by God?”

While cautioning men of God to be mindful of their utterances, he urged them to always lead by example as they shall be justified or condemned by the words from their mouths.

“History is repeating self because a similar question was asked by Nathaniel about Jesus Christ, ‘Can any good come out of Nazareth?’ In this case, our answer is come and see. God has decided to come from Edom to establish his kingdom on earth (through Olumba Olumba Obu).

“We have for too long tolerated all the accusations and falsehood levelled against BCS and her leadership. Now we remind all who perpetrate this evil that BCS has legal rights which we will not shy away from exercising if this campaign of calumny continues. Take heed,” Archibong stated in his response noted.
