The founder and president of Jesus Deliverance Ministry base in Abuja Nigeria, 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 is all about choice, but those who chose to buy will gain it hundred times.
Many Christians in Nigeria condemned the activity, they said that selling anointing oil is not Biblical, there is no where you can find in the Bible where the Apostles sold anointing oil. According to one of the members, some people bought 2 bottles which is 2 million Naira, while some bought more than that for their friends.
The man of God is among wealthy pastors in Nigeria, he makes more than 20 million Naira every Sunday. The question, is pastor Shola only man of God that sells anointing oil in Nigeria? the answer is no, there are other men of God in Nigeria that sell anointing oil.
