The Cherubim and Seraphim Church has reportedly suspended some of its prophets who were indicted by an undercover investigation conducted by the Foundation of Investigative Journalism.
Religion Nigeria had reported that Fisayo Soyombo of FIJ had released a video documentary which provided evidence of certain corrupt practices in the church.
Scenes from the video showed some clerics of the church giving false prophecies in exchange for money.
In a latest development, it has been reported that the prophets have been demoted and suspended from the church.
According to FIJ, a senior member of the church, who pleaded anonymity, said that that the church’s prelate, HME Elder David Bob-Manuel, convened a panel shortly after FIJ’s report to probe the complicity of the prophets identified in the series.
The panel found the prophets guilty, demoted and suspended them from the church as a result, and the decision was announced to the congregation on Tuesday via the church’s social media platform, the source added.
