Pastor Noah Abraham of Christ High Commission Ministry in Ekiti State has explained why he recently charged his members N310k to make heaven.
The pastor was recently invited by the police for allegedly collecting money from members of his church on a promise to take them to heaven after the rapture.
Abraham was said to have kept about 40 people in his church at the Araromi-Ugbesi in Omuo-Oke, Ekiti State in what he described as preparation for the coming of Jesus Christ, otherwise known as the rapture.
Some of his church members have allegedly sold their belongings, hoping Jesus would meet them while camping at his church while a few others are said to have abandoned their families who refused to join them to live in the church.

Speaking with BBC Yoruba, the pastor said, “Truly I told my congregation to pay N310,000, I made the declaration when I noticed that my members’ troubles were increasing.
I did it because I got the authority of God who called me to practise for all that want to serve the Lord with their whole heart.
I have never received any payment yet from any member of the church, and the Ekiti State Police has intervened in the matter.
I was called by the police for Investigation and all the members of the church were there and all of them took notes of what happened.“
