Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), a prayer and deliverance church in Nigeria with branches in all continents of the world, has recovered its Maryland, United States branch allegedly stolen from it by the branch pastor, his wife, and 11 others.
According to a statement by the Church, it also recovered other church assets belonging to MFM, including bank accounts earlier converted to personal use by the pastor and his co-conspirators.
The feat is sequel to a long-drawn litigation, which got a head on October 22, 2021 when the pastor, his wife the 11 others lost their legal action to retain the alleged stolen church and other assets of the church, including the bank accounts.
A judge heard the trial and found in favour of Mountain of Fire against all defendants.
The judge entered judgement requiring the pastor and the co- defendants to return the real property, bank accounts, assets and awarded Mountain of Fire damages and attorney’s fees.
