Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin, the head prophet of Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry, has denied offering his one-time friend, social media influencer and OAP, Daddy Freeze a N5million bribe.
In a reply which the cleric’s Publicity Secretary, Mr Moses Akpovotiti and his Media Aide, Engr Tare Franklin Fufeyin, issued on Wednesday, he described the allegation as misleading.
Debunking the allegation, the statement quoted him as saying: “I did not offer Daddy Freeze a N5million bribe.”
According to him, Daddy Freeze’s statement, which has since gone viral, was made on the 25th of April, 2020, as a response to a comment on Instagram.
The rejoinder said: “It involved Daddy Freeze trying to defend his transparency as a social media influencer; the OAP’s comment may have unintentionally or intentionally implied that Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin had offered him some sort of monetary gift or bribe, which he refused to accept.”
Fufeyin made it unequivocally clear that transpired between himself and Daddy Freeze was a work plan to assist Nigerians during the Lockdown period, using Daddy Freeze’s social media page.
The statement said: the “Man of God planned to use the social media influencer as a channel to disburse N5m naira to Nigerians, and never made any bribe offer or any such offer to Daddy Freeze.”
It added: “The statement made by Daddy Freeze is confusing and misleading to his personality, suggesting that he attempted to bribe him for any reason whatsoever.
“It should be clear, on record, that this supposed N5 million was meant to be distributed to distressed Nigerians during the Lockdown period.
“The Man of God is known for his humanitarian activities and general goodwill, and the information being passed around is quite misleading.
He added: “Daddy Freeze should not have used Prophet Jeremiah’s charitable gestures as a reference in whatever defense he was trying to make for Apostle Suleman.
” It is quite offensive and misleading, and we have since gotten public insinuations that Prophet Jeremiah offered Daddy Freeze a Five million naira bribe.
” Let it be very clear that the purpose of this money offered was to assist Nigerians during this Lockdown and not as a gift to Daddy Freeze, as his statement may insinuate.”
