Abuja - The general overseer of one of the country's largest congregations, Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), Pastor Daniel Olukoya, has warned members to be wary of fraudsters who are using the church's forthcoming convention to defraud people.

Olukoya told his members nationwide during a live broadcast of the church weekly service that it had come to the notice of the church that some fraudsters were now using fake Facebook accounts to solicit money from members of the public.
