Apostle Johnson Suleman, the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International (OFM), has described the Mavrodi Mondial Movement investment scheme – popularly known as (MMM) – as satanic, adding that anyone involved is demonic.
The controversial cleric, who had some months ago declared that Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El Rufai will die, made the comment in his recent sermon.
Suleman denounced the scheme which has attracted heated debates on the Nigerian social media scene during the life sermon.
The clergyman said:
“If you are involved in MMM, you are demonic,” the apostle said. “It is satanic, go and check the founder of MMM. He was a fraudster in America; defrauded people, and that’s what you’re involving yourself in and you are a Christian, looking for easy way out. Many Christians have gotten involved. If you are involved in MMM, I have to pray for you today. It’s not of God. Any quick fix way for money is not of God because some people are being defrauded to enrich some other people.”
“Any quick-rich scheme is wrong. In life, everything you get if is not favour from a particular individual. If it’s quick favour through a process, you will pay for it later. If it’s a person you know that walked up to you and blesses you, take it. That’s favour. But a quick business transaction that can bring a return of over 200 person, is not of God.”
The scheme was setup by one Sergei Mavrodi, a Russian and a former deputy of the State Duma.
Further findings showed that Sergei Mavrodi was in 2007 found guilty in a Russian court of defrauding 10,000 investors out of 110 million rubles ($4.3 million).
