When Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries raised its voice against false reports, it was a reminder that good name should be chosen than great riches and also reminding everyone that the destruction of most individuals or corporate bodies often begin by giving them a bad name, which is giving a dog a bad name in order to hang it.
Thus, concerned about the move to
soil its name through false accusations by some people, the leadership of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM) has sounded a note of warning to rumour mongers against peddling falsehood against the church, adding “the church will fight against any attempt to tarnish its image.”
Just as it vowed that it would no longer turn a blind eye to false to such anti-peace publications aimed at tarnishing its reputation, regardless of the source.
The Chief Legal Adviser Worldwide of MFM, Davidson Adejuwon, made this statement in response to a recent ruling by the United States Court against Nigerian blogger, Funke Asekun.
Report gathered by Allcitynews.ng showed that the U.S. Court had already imposed a $50,000 fine on the blogger as compensation for defaming the General Overseer of the MFM, Dr Daniel Olukoya.
MFM took legal action, alleging that Asekun was spreading inaccurate and baseless statements about the church and its General Overseer on social media.
Furthermore, MFM asserted that the blogger was damaging the reputation and image of both Olukoya and the ministry.
In a lawsuit filed by three MFM pastors based in the United States, Asekun, who recently relocated to America, was accused of making defamatory remarks about the General Overseer in a video posted on her YouTube channel on November 28, 2023.
Presided over by Theresa Adams, the U.S. Court delivered a unanimous verdict in favour of MFM USA and its three pastors, resulting in the $50,000 fine imposed on the blogger.
Adejuwon emphasized that the verdict served as a cautionary message, highlighting the importance for both the general public and the media to ensure the accuracy of their information prior to disseminating any content that may be detrimental to MFM.
Adejuwon said: “Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries is not just any church. It is an Apostolic Revival Church of Christ with a great end-time mandate divinely committed into the hand of a prepared prophet and servant of God, Dr. D. K. Olukoya, the General Overseer of the Ministry worldwide.”
“There is no way you deliberately and devilishly collide with such and not be grounded.
“I implore the public and the media to do proper checks before publishing stories or sharing lies and falsehoods against the church…We will not fold our arms anymore on such unacceptable trends in our society,” he added.
