Ade Abraham, the pastor of Christ High Commission Ministry, also known as Royal Christ Assembly, Kaduna State, is smiling all the way to the bank after convincing his church members to relocate to a camp in Ekiti State with him, in order to “prepare for the end of the world”.
According to reports, the pastor first relocated to Ekiti State from Kaduna State, where he was formerly based, in 2020. He then later returned to Kaduna State in April to ask each member of his church to pay him N310,000 before they would be allowed to follow him to Omuo-Ekiti, where “the gates of heaven will open for all of them to fly to heaven”.
According to FIJ, Abraham also assured the members that they would all ‘ascend to heaven together from the location in Ekiti’. “My relative has also asked her daughter, who is studying abroad, to return to Nigeria, or else the pastor (Abraham) would make her commit an offence over there that would see her go to jail,” a source told FIJ.
The newspaper also obtained a WhatsApp conversation that backed up the source’s claim. It was the conversation that reflected what the pastor’s follower told her daughter. Another member of the church who is currently in camp in Ekiti said that Abraham’s campers still go about their normal businesses on regular days.
The follower also said “saved members” left their “past lives” behind in Kaduna to join the pastor in Ekiti on April 6. He confirmed that they would be at the camp with the pastor “until the day of rapture”. According to the member, Abraham still holds regular church services on Sundays and Wednesdays. “We are not coming back. I can’t explain in details. We are going to make rapture from here. We are going to a heavenly place,” the member told FIJ.
