Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere, the General Overseer of Omega Power Ministries, has revealed the reason he placed a curse on former security guards, Happie Boys.
Recall that the boys, Matthew Precious Kelechi and Amakor Johnson, released a voice note in which the clergyman rained hefty curses on them for being ‘ungrateful’ and going public with their plight.
He had stated that they will remain poor forever and declared that they will never achieve anything in life, let alone buy a plot of land.
The former security guards had shared the disturbing voice note after calling out the pastor for halting their scholarship at a university in Cyprus.
They claimed that the pastor only sponsored their studies for six months after their relocation to Cyprus and abandoned them to fend for themselves. The boys also revealed that they had dropped out of school due to lack of funds.
Following the call-out, Pastor Chinyere said he paused the scholarship due to financial challenges, and suggested that the boys return to Nigeria or a university in Benin Republic to continue their studies. However, they blatantly refused.
Well, in a recent interview with newsmen in Port Harcourt, the clergyman maintained that he didn’t abandon the boys in Cyprus.
He said he was upset and regretted sending the boys abroad after they called him out on social media, and that he cursed them out of rage. He, however, noted that he has forgiven them because they are like his children.
“Number one, I have forgiven them. Placing a curse is done out of anger. I have forgiven them because they are my children.”
The pastor also denied abandoning the boys, stating that the reason he could no longer support their studies was the global increase in the dollar exchange rate.
Speaking on how he felt when his benefeciaries called him out on social media, he said,
“I came into this world as dust, and I’m going back as dust. We live a borrowed life. The air is borrowed. God owns everything we have. God can decide that today, I’m taking back what I gave to you, will you be alive? I see life as everything we have, we don’t own it. It is owned by God. And when you try to give out and you don’t want to eat alone, then you are trying to discourage me? Do you know how many things that came to my head, especially when the Happie Boys issue happened? I regretted sending them, I regretted so many things. I know how many millions I spent on each of them to travel. The visas, ticket and everything. I regretted. Ticket alone was N2 million.”
