Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministry General overseer Daniel Olukoya, yesterday denied any link to fraudulent activities allegedly involving the London branch of the church.
According to him, all the seven allegations levelled against him and the MFM were without foundation, but were intended to damage his reputation and destroy the global image of the church.
This statement was made yesterday by Olukoya through his media aide, Mr. Collins Edomaruse.
The Charity Commission, an independent regulator of charities in England and Wales, had appointed an interim manager to manage Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries International (1100416), a North London-based charity, which exists to promote Christianity.
The interim manager was saddled with the responsibility of reviewing the charity’s financial and governance processes, inspecting a number of the charity’s branches and their handling of serious incidents.
The statement by Olukoya said: “It has become pertinent for the purpose of clarity to respond to the false allegations being peddled against MFM and Olukoya in the social media particularly sponsored by SaharaReporters.”
He equally denied that he falsely “claimed residence of the US city of Maryland. Nothing can be further from the truth. Olukoya is a public figure nationally and internationally. His domicile is therefore a fact of public knowledge.
“The true position is that the pastor who wanted to register MFM in Maryland inserted Olukoya’s name without prior consultation with or knowledge of the G.O because he believed that Olukoya should be involved”.
