Pastor Olukoya set to lose Mountain of Fire Prayer City

23 November 2016, 08:30

Abeokuta - Founder and General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, is on the verge of losing the vast land on which MFM Prayer City sits, reports Sahara Reporters.

This follows the judgement of the Abeokuta Division of the High Court of Ogun State  which ruled in favour of the Adejonlu family

The court presided over by Justice A.A Akinyemi had on May 12 stated that the Adejonlu family are the bona fide owners of the land on which the famous crusade and camp ground sits along the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.  

Olukoya had bought the land from the Oduleye family.

The church according to Encomium magazine is worth over N100b

This implication of the court judgement is that Olukoya's church bought the land from, and paid, the wrong people.

Following the ruling, the lawyer of Adejonlu family, R. O. Sadik, wrote many letters to Olukoya for negotiation and settlement.

The letters then proceeded with demands by the land owners. Notably, the landowners requested the church, assisted by its lawyers, to determine the size and portion of their land on which MFM Prayer City sits. T

The owners also demanded a payment of N5million per plot to cover the acreage that would be agreed on by the land owners and the church.

These demands have, however, not be met by the church.

But the owners are keen on enforcing the court ruling and taking full possession of the land.
