US Court Orders Olukoya To Pay $7,320 To Sowore For Lying by EdemIboro: 11:06am On Jul 05
US court orders Olukoya, MFM general overseer, to pay $7,320 to Sowore for lying

In Maryland, a United States district court has ordered Daniel Olukoya, general overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), to pay $7,320 within 30 days to Omoyele Sowore, publisher of Sahara Reporters.

SaharaReporters had published stories involving Olukoya in September 2017 when some members of the church in Maryland accused him of importing religious books without paying customs duties.

Olukoya, then in October 2018, instituted a court action against Sowore and Sahara Reporters Media Incorporated.

In the case with suit number 8:18-cv-02922, the clergyman highlighted the Sahara Reporters publication of September 27, 2017, entitled “former Mountain Of Fire Miracles Ministries pastors accuse general overseer, Olukoya, Of illegal importation of goods in US property dispute”.

Olukoya and the church lawyers had stated in a 49-paragraph complaint their three causes of action which were “defamation, defamation per se and false light”.

In the suit, the defendants had sought information related to the UK Charity Commission’s investigation of Olukoya’s church. When Olukoya failed to provide the requested discovery, the defendants filed a motion to compel him.

But Olukoya stated that he had responded to the discovery requests and that the motion to compel him was therefore moot.

Ruling on the suit on June 24, 2021, Theodore D. Chuang, the judge, held that “unfortunately, Olukoya’s response to the motion to compel contained a serious misrepresentation; he had not produced any documents relating to proceedings before the U.K. Charity Commission related to Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries International”.

“The conclusion is that; for the reasons set forth above, the defendants’ motion for sanctions will be granted in part and denied in part,” the court held.

“The court will enter the following sanctions against the defendants: Olukoya is prohibited from (1) making any use of any documents related to the U.K. Charity Commission that he produced to the defendants after January 2, 2021; and from (2) challenging the admissibility of these documents on any basis other than Fed. R. Evid. 401 and 403.

“Olukoya will also be required to pay the defendants’ reasonable attorney’s fees incurred in connection with his discovery failures, which total $7,320.00, within 30 days of the date of this order. Payment should be made directly to the defendants’ attorneys. These sanctions are entered against Olukoya pursuant to Rules 37(c) and 26(g).”

Na wa o

When the bible asks us to give to Caesar (government) what is Caesar's.

Thank God for knowledgeable and independent minded members who held him accountable.

Judgement will indeed start from the house of God.

Hmm
AQUARIUS AGE IS REALLY A TRYING TIME FOR RELIGIOUS FOLKS. THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING AS THEY ARE MEANT TO KEEP LOSING, UNTIL ALL DECEPTIONS OF 'Touch not my anointed' will be cleared off the faces of their followers. THEY HAVE BEEN WARNED IN THE SPIRIT WORLD TO DESIST FROM CONTINUOUS SUPPORT OF RELIGION AND FOLLOW SCIENCE OUTRIGHTLY, BUT THEY WILL NOT LISTEN.


TB Joshua was one of the greatest deceivers in the world. Back in 2016, I Otem began to make known the truth of the UNIVERSE which culminated in the compilation of the book called BOOK OF UNIVERSAL HISTORY.


https://www.nairaland.com/2938907/doctrine-ufos

This book makes known the history of creation from billions of years back and most importantly, it reveals the falsehood of all religions of the world. It makes known also the creator of Jehovah, Allah, Moloch, Olorun, Chukwu Okike, Odin, Ahura Mazda and thousands of gods human beings have ever worshipped from inception.

The Book of Universal History was contended with in the spiritual realm by the likes of Jehovah, Allah, Enlil, Eusebius and millions of beings in different realms who continue to be in support of religion against science.

In Earth year 2016, all the gods who refused to change their orientation and follow science were encaged by the gods of science and this means that they would be unconscious for a thousand years.

Jehovah, Allah, Enlil, Anu, Moloch and millions of these unrepentant religious gods were encaged as well. Chances were offered to pastors who are still on earth here to change their ways and fight for the course of science and many of them rejected the chance.

Imagine, trying to practise religion in a scientific era is not only a misnomer but also insanity. The era of religion ends with the age of Pisces but stubborn religionists want to keep up their ways in this AQUARIUS AGE when eyes are supposed to be opened and ignorance of superstition is supposed to be done away with.

For the pastors, imams and traditionalists who fight against the AGE OF AQUARIUS vehemently, they were made to know that misfortunes will befall them and their ministries continually and when they die, their consciousness will be encaged alongside the consciousness of the founders of their religions.

Otematum:
TB JOSHUA, ADEBOYE, OYAKHILOME, OYEDEPO, AKINOLA, etc were among the pastors who fought vehemently against the AQUARIUS AGE in the spiritual realm. Some of them were infected with ailments that will take them off the earth untimely so that religious beliefs could wane fastly off the eyes of the believers.

Even when TB JOSHUA was near-death, he refused to denounce his falsehood and come to the way of science, yet he was using scientific drugs, thinking it would help him recover. Same was the son of Adeboye and some other pastors and clerics all over the world whose names I can't mention now. They died and went to meet with their imprisoned gods in States of unconsciousness. For a thousand years, they will remain unconscious only to awake into a time when scientific inventions of unimaginable magnitudes would have filled up the whole universe.

Christians should learn that RELIGION won't work in this AQUARIUS AGE and they should focus on championing the course of science.

Look around you and tell me if there is anything around you that doesn't have a touch of science and technology in it.

REST IN UNCONSCIOUSNESS TB JOSHUA. We shall see each other in year 3016.

Read the BOOK OF UNIVERSAL HISTORY to know the TRUTH OF THE UNIVERSE
