A female evangelist, Kwanye Tumba, has dragged the Pastor of House Chapel in Karewa, Yola North LGA of the state, to court for alleged refusal to marry her.
Evangelist Kwanye told the court that the 28-year-old pastor, Marwa Tumba, had promised to marry her, but dumped her for another girl after squandering her hard-earned money and wasted her life. She told the court that she first met the man of God after a prayer meeting at Yolde Pate, a suburb of Yola South LGA in 2019, during which he told her that he saw a vision that she got a husband.
According to her, Pastor Marwa informed her that she is now his wife and immediately he asked her to start “sowing a seed”. She claimed that she started “sowing a seed” as requested by the pastor by giving him the sum of N1,000.
She said that a relationship ensued after he promised that he would marry her as seen in a vision. Evangelist Kwanye narrated that her pastor boyfriend later told her to resign from her job and sell her house before getting married. She agreed and tendered her resignation letter and sold the home at N500,000.
According to her, when the money for the house was paid to her, she immediately transferred the sum of N50,000 as tithe into the pastor’s account and used the remaining funds to support the church from time to time until all the money got finished.
However, trouble started when he asked her to give him the list of all items as provided by tradition for their marriage, which she did and he disappeared into thin air after refusing to show up for the introduction as promised
