Fake Testimony Lands Woman In Police Net
For constantly feeding different unsuspecting congregations with lies and fake testimonies, a 25-year-old woman, Mrs Blessing Emeka Eze, is biting fingers of regret in Police custody.
She was arrested after it was discovered that the woman has been going from one church to another, claiming that her 8-year-old daughter was kidnapped and released after 11 days in captivity.
It was further gathered that the Owode, Ogun State-born domestic servant met her waterloo after she practiced her deceit at Four Square Gospel Church, Obawole, Iju Station, a suburb of Lagos State, on Sunday, 7 June, 2015.
Mrs Eze had gone on to falsely testify that her 8-year old daughter, who was kidnapped at Ogba area of Lagos State, was found at Mile 2 after 11 days.
She also told the congregation that her daughter, Precious, complained that she was been fed with raw food and raw meat, thus her health became risky.
After listening to the woman, the Pastor of the church, Rev. A.S. Adekunle ordered that the girl should be taken to a medical centre at Old Akute Road for treatment.
However, on getting to the hospital, the bubble busted.
It was discovered that the 8-year-old girl, who was wearing pampers, was observed by the doctor on duty and certified okay.
But the mother insisted that something was wrong with her.
At this point, the doctor prescribed that she has to be on observation in addition to giving her drip to flush out any disease she might have contracted.
Again, her mother objected and demanded that the girl be given only injection.
While the argument was on, two men came in and identified the woman and the same daughter as the person who gave a similar testimony the previous Sunday at Christ Apostolic Church in the same Obawole and the church donated N5,000 for her to take care of the child.
After she was threatened with arrest, she opened up and said the girl was not kidnapped as she alleged, adding that she was only using the girl to make ends meet.
She was subsequently handed over to the police at Iju Police Station, Red House, Iju Ishaga, Lagos State for further investigation.
