“There is no man of God that Satan will not hunt, except the person that his time has not come,” said Ajigbotoluwa.
He added, “If I can have favour from God, Nigerians and the government, then it is my promise that I will turn a new leaf and I will be preaching to prisoners.”
“I will be going to cells to preach to them; that is the kind of ministry I want to establish to change people if God can give me the grace. If I knew it was bad, I wouldn’t have done it; as it’s happening now, it is a disgrace to me.”
Ajigbotoluwa urged people not to use his experience as a yard stick to judge other Christian leaders.
He said, “I am crying because of God, because the name of God should not be put to shame, especially when you’re talking of white garment church.”
“For my sake, nobody should desert, abuse or harass them or say that there is no minister of God or say that there is no God or say that they will not worship God. I am only a sinner, somebody else might not be,” he added.
