|How Jailed Prophet Helped 82 Inmates Regain Freedom by Ifesinachi22(m): 7:31am On Mar 09|
Barely four months after he was convicted and sentenced to a two-year jail time, Prophet Israel Ogundipe, has assisted 82 persons incarcerated unjustly to regain freedom, the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC), Genesis Global Parish, has said.
The church’s Public Relations Officer Gbolanhan Ashorobi, said this at an event to announce a partnership with the Monday Ubani Foundation.
The partnership is aimed at releasing more people from the correctional facilities.
The Nation reports that Ogundipe was jailed by an Ikeja High Court nine years after a case of fraud and obtaining money under false pretences levelled against him by a United Kingdom (UK) based Nigerian woman, Olaide Williams-Oni, commenced.
He was charged with seven counts of obtaining by stealing, including delivery of money by false pretence, unlawful conversion of property and forgery but five of the counts were quashed by the court for want of evidence, while he was found guilty of two counts by Justice Olabisi Akinlade.
But the prophet said to have seen his incarceration in Kirikiri Correctional centre as an act of God, assisted in paying legal fees for awaiting trail inmates and getting lawyers to pursue the unlawful incarceration.
Former Second Vice President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Monday Ubani said his firm and foundation would join hands with the prophet to ensure more people being held unjustly are freed.
Ubani said he particularly picked interest on the prophet because of testimonies of how he donates materials to inmates.
