Not less than 4,761 people and counting have signed a petition to stop popular Nigerian preacher, Rev. Funke Felix-Adejumo from allegedly defrauding residents of United Kingdom, United States, and European Union.

Recall that the clergy has been trending for weeks on social media for demanding for huge donations.

The petitioners spread across the United Kingdom, United States, and European Union.

The petition was started in the United Kingdom by one Mayowa Olaiya on change.org in order to stop her from “coming to the UK to defraud the people and the country.”

In Mayowa’s words: “Funke Felix Adejumo is one of a group of Nigerian religious Charlatans who regularly visit the UK to defraud the people and the country. They ask people to sow seeds for miracles and breakthrough and flee from the country with the funds without paying tax. They go from Churches to churches; this is a religious cabal network.”

So far, over 745 people have signed the petition which is seeking 1000 signatures.

The U.S petition was started by Daniel Audu who wrote: “We are determined to stop the extortion and money laundering going on in the united states by fraudulent Nigerian pastor rev Funke Felix Adejumo.

“She hides under the pretense of being a woman of God and extort money from gullible unsuspecting members in different Nigerian churches across the United States. We have reason to believe this woman is laundering money from the united states through the pretense of a church. This is an illegal money laundry channel and we need to regulate or stop this extortion.”

The third petition is by Simon Peter who is trying to stop her from “entering the EU to defraud people and the country.” 144 out of the required 200 people have already signed.

However, while others are campaigning vehemently against the pastor, some other people are spreading messages of how her preachings have affected their lives positively.

The clergy and her ministry are yet to respond officially to these petitions and allegations of extorting congregants.--Newsguru
