The founder and president of Jesus Deliverance Ministry Abuja base, pastor Shola Akande was accused and arrested for selling anointing oil to his church members for 1 million naira per bottle.
According to the man of God, the power in the oil can make a poor man a millionaire in less than one month. It can heal any sickness, it can raise the dead, and it works signs and wonders. He further said that he is not forcing anyone to buy it as it is all about choice but those who chose to buy will gain it a hundred times.
Many Christians in Nigeria have condemned it. They said that selling anointing oil is not Biblical and there is no where in the Bible the Apostles sold anointing oil. According to one of the members, some people bought 2 bottles which is 2 million naria, while some bought more than that for their friends.
The man of God is one of the richest pastors in Nigeria. He makes more than 20 million naira every Sunday.
