Following the undercover investigation by FIJ’s ‘Fisayo Soyombo on the activities of fake prophets and their methods of defrauding their victims with fake visions and prophesies, members of the public have been coming forward with tales of their experiences in the hands of fake prophets.


On Saturday, Soyombo had tweeted: “What fake prophecy/vision has a Christian or Islamic leader given you before? I’ll go first by sharing two personal examples.

“One fake prophet once told my sister that our mum exchanged her destiny with mine. Lemao. A very foolish prophet deserving of 100 strokes of the cane.

“By the way, my sister didn’t go seeking him out; he ran into her. Thankfully, she didn’t believe him.

“Also, in 2005, one Alfa ran into me on the streets of the University of Ibadan, and told me I should have progressed more than I had were it not for my lack of ‘eyonu’ (favour). He said one ‘iya ibeji’ (mother of twins) in my family was responsible for my predicament. Lol. That one even gave me his number and told me to call him? Make I bend if I call him! Pray, tell, in how many extended families don’t we have at least one mother of twins?

“I know your experience is probably more preposterous than mine. Please share here if you’re comfortable with it, or inbox and I’ll reproduce it here for you anonymously.

Responding via Twitter message, a politician’s daughter who asked not to be named, said her father, contesting for a House of Representatives seat in 2015 under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was repeatedly deceived by a prophet that he would win, only to lose after vigorously funding the church’s activities.

“Hi Fisayo! I don’t know if you’ll see this message but it’s a response to your “#Prophetsoftheirpockets” tweet where you asked people to share their stories.

“I’m going to start by saying that I do not support my father’s political career but he is his own person and it is his money to spend as he likes. Back in 2014/2015, my dad was a very active member of PDP; he was contesting for a House Of Representatives position.

“At the time, we were attending a church that had around 100 members, give or take. It was the typical ‘the rich come first’ setting and the pastor was very fond of my dad; I’m talking dinners and home visits.

“The main issue is that this pastor who was ‘highly anointed and highly favoured by the most high’ prophesied that my father would win in the elections, my father believed him. I guess he was holding on to every morsel of hope he could find. Consequently, my dad made large monetary donations and even funded some of the renovations of the church building in an attempt to somehow secure this prophecy that he had received.

“Needless to say, my father lost the election and a bit of his morale for a while, which was difficult for me to witness as his daughter. Sha, fast forward to the present, my family no longer attends that church (we stopped going shortly after the elections), the pastor’s ministry grew exponentially and now, he’s the running mate of a presidential candidate in the 2023 elections (that should give you a bit of an idea of who he is lol).”

FIJ’s checks showed that Bishop Isaac Idahosa, the founder of God First Ministry (better known as Illumination Assembly), is the only pastor who is running mate to a presidential candidate in the 2023 elections.

Idahosa was announced running mate to Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) on July 14, and has been fully involved in the campaign activities of Kwankwaso since then.

Idahosa founded the Illumination Assembly, Lagos over 32 years ago in Minna, Niger State. However, past videos of some of his deliverance sessions have generated controversies.
