Confusion over outrageous deliverance fee and death of two siblings has landed the General Overseer and founder of a church, Set Captive Free Ministry, Prophet Samuel Ndukwu in police net after he fled from Lagos to Port Harcourt to avoid getting nailed for what looked like a failed deliverance process.

According to PM Express, Policemen in Lagos state arrested Prophet Samuel for allegedly obtaining N8m from his church member, Uche Nwoke under the false pretense of delivering him from family curses. But the deliverance turned into calamity when the two children of Nwoke died on the same day and Prophet Ndukwu sneaked off to Portharcourt in River State where he was eventually arrested and brought to Lagos.

He was arraigned before Isolo Magistrates court where he is facing charges of obtaining under false pretence, stealing and threat to life of the victim and was remanded in prison custody.

According to , Prophet Ndukwu prophesied to Nwoke that there was a family curse that was hindering the progress of his family members and there was need for the family to carry out deliverance to upturn the hindrance.

He assured him after the spiritual deliverance, all the things the family members lost in the past because of the curses will be regained and directed him to bring the money for the work.

Reports have it that Nwoke believed the Prophet and sold all he had and gave to Prophet Ndukwu who performed some spiritual deliverance which eventually led to the death of Nwoke’s children. Nwoke asked to know why things turned out like that instead of getting better, Prophet Ndukwu said he did not know what happened. It was further gathered that when Nwoke requested the refund of his money, Prophet Ndukwu threatened to wipe out his family if he dared asked for the money.
