Church G.O fires Pastor for using church name to invest in ‘demonic’ MMM
Apostle Johnson Suleman, founder of the Omega Fire Ministry, who earlier described popular Ponzi scheme MMM as demonic, has reportedly sacked a pastor in one of his church branches for using the church name to invest in the MMM scheme.
The sack was revealed in a statement signed by Pastor David Apelorioye, the head of admin at OFM, who informed that the guilty party, Pastor Joseph Aiyedun, in charge of one the OFM branches in Aba, Abia State, has been sacked.
The statement said that Pastor Aiyedun was fired for participating in the Mavrodi Mondial Movement (MMM), a ponzi scheme widely acclaimed to be a satanic venture by his boss.

“The management of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide is using this medium to react to a news making the rounds on the social media regarding one of his pastors who used the ministry’s name to register for the MMM scheme. Ordinarily, the church would not have reacted to the story because of falsehoods being published regularly by some blogs and news websites whose credibility are questionable. But after a thorough investigation by the church authority, it was established that one of our branch pastors in Aba, Pastor Joseph Aiyedun, indeed participated in the scheme.” The statement read in part.
Continuing, Pastor Apelorioye said in the statement that Pastor Aiyedun was sacked because he involved the ministry’s name in the satanic venture.
“The church authority decided to expel Pastor Aiyedun not because he registered for the Ponzi scheme but because he involved the ministry’s name in the satanic adventure. And we discovered that he was able to use the ministry’s name because he had access to the account of his branch which itself is against the church’s guidelines and a fraud likely to have been carried out in connivance with the branch’s account department. We are still investigating further to unravel the whole activities.”
