Nigerian Prophet Speaks On Pastors Praying For ‘Yahoo Boys’
A Nigerian prophet has spoken about the trend of pastors praying for ‘yahoo boys’ to succeed in their criminal ways.
A prophet, Barr Ejike Nwachukwu has admonished his fellow pastors not to pray for internet fraudsters, popularly known as Yahoo boys, saying that there was no difference between them and thieves, Daily Post reports.
Nwachukwu, head pastor of Rhema Deliverance Ministry, who spoke at the church’s parish in Awka during a special Sunday service said there was a growing trend of internet fraudsters visiting pastors for prayers for them to succeed in their plots.
The senior pastor also lamented that internet fraud, which is most popularly known as yahoo yahoo in Nigeria, was fast spreading, and that young people now believe that there was no better way to get rich quicker than to join internet scammers.
He urged his fellow pastors to shun such young men, saying that the recent trend was for the fraudsters to seek out men of God, who they present with huge cash as seed faith, asking for prayers to succeed in their plots, with a promise to bring more.
Nwachukwu lamented that lots of Nigerian youths were very creative, but instead of channeling their creativity into something useful, they preferred to indulge in fraud. He wondered how two young people would have N4million and cannot use it to begin a meaningful venture?
He added that pastors who accepted such monies were bringing curse upon themselves, insisting that fraudsters were not different from killers.
