His method sparked criticism on social media, forcing the state government to wade into the development.

The state government had in a statement issued by Mr C. Don Adinuba, the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment warned the preacher against his practices which the government termed ‘criminal and indecent conduct in the name of religion’.

The preacher had claimed he was going to raise the dead at mortuaries, forcing the Anambra state Ministry of Health to issue warnings to hospitals and mortuaries operating in the state against granting him access to their facilities to carry out his widely publicised claim, and planned ‘magic’ that he would raise 7 corpses from the dead.
