Following reports that one Pastor Emmanuel of the Grace Dispensation Prophetic Ministry International located in Amukpe Axis of Sapele Delta State was caught among a group of kidnappers and was subsequently shot dead while trying to escape, the General Overseer of the church, Apostle Joshua Oribhabor, has reacted saying the name of his ministry should not be dragged through the mud.

In an interview with Sapele Olofofo Unugbragada, Apostle Joshua said Pastor Emmanuel visited his Ministry in one of his programs and he was accepted into the Ministry as a brother in faith.

According to Apostle Joshua he said; “I don’t have other Pastors in my Ministry and I have never ordained any, I don’t know where and who ordained Pastor Emmanuel, he do attend our programs and became a friend to the Ministry, but we were never aware of his illicit act and we never recognize him as a pastor.

“My Ministry Grace Dispensation Prophetic Ministry Int’l is not and can never be a party to his evil deed, we are informing the general public that we know nothing about it and the name of our Ministry should not be dragged to the mud..”

Pastor Emmanuel was shot dead while trying to escape from the police when he was accosted along with other members of his armed robbery group.
