Uproar as man donates family home to Christian Embassy, putting family members at risk of homelessness
A family has come out to demand justice after their son donated the family house as seeds to the Christian Embassy in Warri, Delta State.
The expatriate man, identified simply as Shedrack, reportedly returned to Nigeria last year and got serious about religion, to the approval of his family.
However, not long ago, he donated the family house to the church.
His family members didn’t know their house had been donated until Shedrack’s father noticed men walking around inspecting the property.
When the older man inquired, he was told that the property now belonged to Christ Embassy and was valued at 25 million naira to sell.
The house was built on land that belonged to the whole family and to which the whole family had contributed money, although Shedrack contributed the lion’s share.
Shedrack’s father said he wrote to the senior pastor at Christ Embassy in Warri and he promised to do something, but a month has passed and nothing has happened.
The father has now hired a lawyer after reporting to the police, and Christ Embassy has also come forward.
In a statement, Shedrack father pleaded with the General Overseer of Christ Embassy, Chris Oyakhilome, to intervene.
