Pentecostal church expels pastor over alleged adultery

PENTECOSTAL Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Ughelli North Chapter, Delta State, yesterday, expelled Rev. Lucky Utakpa Oghenemiroro of God’s Gifted Ministry International for allegedly impregnating a woman outside wedlock and re-marrying.
Handing the letter of expulsion to the church, chairman of PFN in the area, Rev. Emman Eredoro, the Secretary, Dr. Mereh Wariri and other executives, said they had exhausted all efforts to make Oghenemiroro “retrace his steps but to no avail,” adding that the marriage between him and his wife was still subsisting.
Alleging in the letter that “the immoral activities of Oghenemiroro were glaring,” it said: “The extra–marital affair and adultery were proved and our warning and wise counsel fell on deaf ears.
“Consequently, this expulsion has, therefore, become absolutely necessary as we cannot condone these atrocities from a professed minister of the gospel. You know that the word of God forbids any Christian from engaging in such activities.”
Reacting, Oghenemiroro said: “marriage is not by force as we all know, if I say I will not marry you again it is not by force. The father of my wife has refunded the dowry I paid, to me and the matter is before a Customary Court.”
