A young man identified as Shadrach has sowed his father’s house to Christ Embassy Church, Warri Delta State.His father has expressed a state of bewilderment after his son donated the family house which they all dwell in as a seed to Christ Embassy in Warri, Delta state.
According to an online report, after the young man who earlier resides abroad, returned to Nigeria last year, took religious activities as a priority, was fully supported by his family until 2020 when he sowed his car as a seed to the Church. Although his family members had no problem with it but were somehow triggered by the strange step.
However, the story changed when he recently decided to sow his family house to the church without the notice of his father or any other relatives.
The father was said to have noticed some strange men who visited to survey the residence.
When the father made enquiries, it was revealed that Christ Embassy now claims ownership and has been valued to be sold at 25 million Naira.
The house was reportedly said to be built on the family’s land with every member contributing money to erect the building, although Shedrack contributed a bulk sum
The family’s leader said he had written to the Senior Pastor of Christ Embassy who promised to take action, though nothing has changed since the notice was submitted over a month ago.
Shedrack’s father, cousins and four tenants are said to be the occupants of the building.
The father, in a statement, has called on the General Overseer of Christ Embassy, Chris Oyakhilome, to intervene because he has informed the police and gotten a lawyer, same as the church.
Although the outcome of the issue is yet unknown but the man has taken a legal step and also contacted the church authorities for clarification on how to resolve the entanglement.
