By Francis Tayor, Warri The blackmail case of Senior Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin against two young men, Boukan Godwin and Amos Wanki was frustrated in court on the 5th day of November 2020 by the defence counsel, Omes Ogedebge (Esq), who represented the two accused persons.

It would be recalled that, their frustration started when the matter came up on the 20th of October, 2020 at Ughelli Magistrate Court 1, when a protocol officer to prophet Jeremiah Omoto fufeyin from the church, one Ebikabowei testified and was unable to defend the case as everything he said was mere hearsay. The matter was adjourned to 5th of November, 2020 for the Protocol officer to call another witness.

While in Court on the 5th of November, the protocol officer to prophet Jeremiah Omoto fufeyin by name Ebikabowei did not appear in court but sent chains of lawyers led by a retired assistant commissioner of police and other lawyers engaged by the senior prophet Jeremiah omoto fufeyin a legal team that was frustrated in court.

The two accused persons engaged the services of human right Lawyer Omes Ogedegbe Esq. The moment the matter was mentioned the lawyers to Prophet Jeremiah Omoto fufeyin presented a letter from the Commissioner of Police that the matter should be withdrawn for further investigation.

Omes Ogedegbe, Esq opposed the application that the police can no longer withdraw the case. There was a serious legal tussle between the lawyers and the matter was adjourned to 17th November 2020 for the accused lawyers to address and present the defence reason he is opposed to the withdrawal of the case.

Based on populer opinion, it was Elder Godfrey Bodonyefa who happens to be a protocol officer to prophet Jeremiah Omoto fufeyin that is in the purported video against J Israel in South Africa.

The court was forced to rise and abruptly ended proceedings claiming the massive presence of the sympathisers loyal to the two accused persons have overwhelmed the court and adjourned the case to 3rd of December, 2020.

It appears there was a serious ploy on the part of the prophet the moment the matter is withdrawn to rearrest the two accused persons as the prophet had mobilized his supporters and police officers from Asaba who were overwhelmed by the sympathizers to the accused.

The prosecution pleaded with the court to grant another adjournment possibly to enable make another better arrangement to mobilize more police officers to achieve their ugly ends.
