Prophet Samuel Abiara, a former General Overseer of the Christ Apostolic Church has warned politicians and other government officials against stealing from the COVID-19 funds.
The popular prophet warned that anyone who steals from the funds will become cursed and the curse will also follow such a person’s family members.
Abiara gave the warning in a statement on Monday, 10th August where he also appreciated the Lagos State government for granting approval for the reopening of worship centers in the state.
The prophet’s statement read in part:
“For those who are in charge of the donation of money, food items, etc, God said you must not steal anything from the money, food and all items donated for COVID-19 for yourself. If you do that, curses of the pandemic will be in the family of those who do this.”
