AUSTINE Obosele, a Nigerian pastor

Nigerian based Omega Fire Ministries Founder Apostle Johnson Suleman has reacted sharply to the deportation of his Pastor from Zambia.

Suleman accused the Zambian government of always allowing foreigners to start big investments in the country, grow the investment and later deport them so that Zambians can inherit such investments.

In a statement he signed, the controversial clergyman warned that there would be repercussions for such actions.

Suleman noted that such actions by little countries like Zambia would drive away foreign investors from the country.

“If you fight my pastor, you are fighting me. And if you fight me, wait for the results, there will be problems.

“There will be reactions. It’s not the best thing to do. When you do this, you send signals around the world. I am saying this because I know they are watching me. There are people you touch and things will just spoil,” he said.

The Government of Zambia had given a Nigerian pastor, Pastor Augustine Oso Ebosele of Omega Fire Ministries in Lusaka a 48-hour notice to leave the country.

The Zambian government said it decided not to renew the employment permit of the cleric because his conduct had divided the Omega Fire Ministries into two parties.

Chief Government Spokesperson Kampamba Mulenga said it was feared that with the Pastor’s continued stay in the country, the acrimony in Omega Fire Ministries could result into the breakdown and law and order.

She said Pastor Obesele was given 48 hours to leave the country, in accordance with the Immigration and Deportation Act number 18 of 2010.

She added that contrary to speculations, the Government has not closed Omega Fire Ministries and was not against Nigerian Pastors.

She added, “Omega Fire Ministries Headquartered in Nigeria is free to send a senior pastor to come and help reconcile the membership in Lusaka. Members of the church should avoid speculation and remain calm as matters are being dealt with the Church authority.”

  1. You’ve heard for yourselves. These maroons are only upto milking from you. It’s business for them as usual. The bible doesn’t teach about revenge or threatsagainst your enemies. Now this self acclaimed man of God is prescribing amagedon on zambia for chasing his crook from the country.

    • Zambia should simply learn from me PERIOD. I’ve away from Zed for almost 20 years and have mate so many nationalities. All the Nigerian I encountered through college, work or just those African parties, they’re only nice showing some brotherly love because whilst the focus on how they can make money out of you or even use your identity. Just don’t even know why Zedians are always desperate to do business with Nigerians, they’re so Pathetic to me.

    • I am actually disappointed with this “Man of God”. If he was sincere to himself, he should have thought before he leaped. Secondly, what does he consider a big and small country? According to the UN, there is no such thing as a big or small country and that’s why the voice of the US is the same as the voice of the smallest country that this Pastor may think about. At the UN, all countries are equal. Besides, if this Pastor thinks Nigeria is bigger than Zambia, why doesn’t he restrict his gospel to his country after all there are more than 160, 000,000 people in Nigeria, meaning, there are more sinners there than in Zambia, where we are only 16,000,000. There are more arguments to this Pastor! Respond to my argument and I will tell you more about your country including your infamous…

  2. Pray even for those that persecute you. Pray for your enemies. Pray for those that hate you for what does it benefit you if you pray only for those you like? Herein lays today’s Christian pastors. They are full of themselves as if by touching them they will invoke evil to befell you. It’s not the spirit of love in fact they don’t have the Spirit in them but greedy. Too self. Ego. You touch their ego they sermon God to bring calamity on you. Touch not the anointed! Really? Where are the fruits of the Spirit in them to begin with?

  4. Sumaili, Bishops Imakandon and Joshua Banda are the ones behind this confusion. The latter two don’t want competition from foreign pastors. Banda being a known PF cadre is killing two birds with one stone. What a shame!

  7. So sad what is happening to our beautiful welcoming country. The so called PF cadres are to blame for all this, they presented Lungu as sent from God and humble but the opposite is what he is. Lungu is far from humble or God sent, surely God would not be chasing people away for apparently no problem or due process. How do you give someone 48 hours, foolish government they forget that there are many Zambians abroad like HH Oval Head and Nubian princess who could be deported back to Zambia in the same manner to experience first hand tough life under corrupt Lungu. True your Air president is denting our image, with his hatred for others and opposition, this abuse of power is becoming a cancer never seen before, we as a country have never chased so many pastors or insulted judges like this…

    True you can’t compare Zambia and Nigeria!

    But mostly bcoz
    1. Nigerians are criminals everyone in the world knows that

    2. Average Nigerians are much poorer than the average Zambians.

    3. On average and by population ratio Nigerians are less educated than Zambians as Zambia’s literacy is much higher than Nigeria’s. Zambia is 13th most literate country in Africa while Nigeria is #35.

    4. Nigerians are intolerant of other nationalities

    5. More Nigerians are in foreign nails across the world than any other country.

    6. 69% more Nigerians are jobless compared to Zambians

    7. 12% higher infant mortality than zambia

    8. 66% more murders than Zambia

    9. Even if Nigeria has a big population most of their people have no food.

  12. Even by Human development index generally we are by far much better off than these pompous Nigerians.

    That is there are so many millions of criminals from there coming Zambia to get a more decent living they can’t get back home.

    And there are no Zambians in Nigeria or else where as economic refugees or beggars.

    I tried to post above msg with a link but was censored by LT.
    Search for human development index on Google and choose the Wikipedia result.

  13. if the pastor was a terrorist i would support deporting him within 48 hrs; i don’t like Nigerians because they have lot of conmen but deporting someone within 48 hrs is not good; Government should just make it clear to these economic pastors that their visas will not be renewed after 2 years and that no church offering money should be externalized to their church headquarters because the church is not a business.

  15. Ok conman Apostle, then we shall just shut down your con church in Zambia. …kikikikikiki.
    Ash sorry, under5 will not happy with government. He may hold another press briefing today to denounce the deportation. After all to under5 it’s “my enemy’s enemy is my ally”, that the enemy is against his country does not matter, you saw it with Mmembe. Stephen Sackur also mentioned something similar when he asked under5 why he is fighting personal battles at the expense of helping to solve numerous problems affecting millions of citizens in his country.

  16. Yes zambia is country with small population but peaceful better that way than big nigeria with bigger problems , Nigerians are every where in the world and doing the unthinkable .
    People hate them every where and talk of evil about them really what is the advantage , well the are also good people from the great nigeria but there is a negatve tag around their neck .
    I wonder if it is good for a man of God to start fighting nations because they tell him to go , men of God have spiritual warefare to fight not governments of men .

  17. Since when have pastors become investors? This is how foreign fake men of God arr taking us for granted.But I also blame our zambian attitude. Most of us are manipulatef into believing that these pastors will bring prosperity and healing in our lives when they pray for us. Their teaching is about prosperity only when you sow. These guys are trained to alinr their teaching with money. Let’s pprn our eyes Zambians.

  18. Don’t be in a hurry to comment on things you don’t know and have no revelation on. It’s not Man who appoints a Pastor but God. Spiritual things are spiritually discerned. I get surprised how some people have the appetite to insults Men of God. Are you not afraid of God’s wrath? Remember Mirriam and Aron on Moses….Let every Man be a Lier and God be true. I rest my case here.

    • You must be one of the id.iots believing in these come you call profits. Don’t even involve God. These id.iots you call pastors appoint themselves & there in these preaching for money not God. Look at this Suleman conman, he calls church investment. To them its about profit. So work id.iot. You are still sleeping

    • Pastor James, for your information, is one of the pastors from Nigeria. Only a dull person like him can accept the crap he has written.

      In Nigeria they come from shanty towns.The first thing they do when they arrive in Zambia is to look for accommodation in Kabulonga, knowing that Zambians, who are believers in Nigerian messages of sowing a seed will pay the rentals.

      It is time you opened your eyes or else you will continue being cheated and insulted by kaponyas who anoint themselves as messengers of the most high God.

  19. This disgraced so called bishop why do you send your corrupt pastors to zambia a little country? why do you not send them to Maiduguri your northern state that needs a lot of development and christian work? Shame on you? you are the ones doing business in the name of God. If you want to do business in Zambia come as an investor not as a pastor to preach the word of God. South Africa has been trying these Nigerian pastors who come in the name of religion just to sleep with young girls in the church. Bishop who ever they call you in Nigeria tone down. Zambia is not nigeria, it may be small but we have working institutions so keep your pastors and arrogance in Nigeria.

  20. A lot of today´s music has been infiltrated by agents of satan. I do not see the logic behind infusing innocent people´s names in the form of hidden lyrics. I have noticed this even in the Gospel Music which plays on most of the Inter Town Buses. It reminds me of a Chapter which says that even Satan shall appear as an Angel of Light, and for sure he will have a lot of followers. This game started somewhere in the west and has spread to the south, here, north and is all over Africa. It plays in most shopping Malls as well. It has dirty Blessings. The sponsor of this music failed to cure the Mental illness of his Father, but wants to cure an incurable issue with others.

  21. It´s like saying, Lekeni Ukufwa, an issue which has always been there even before we were born. Besides, the mental record of this guy´s Father is available at the mental block in the town where they lived some 20 years ago. The guy is now attacking the very people or person who run to help them. Pachalo tapaba ukuwamya. Although this guy is based in some neighboring Country, he once lived here and speaks one of our Local Languages fluently. He is stinking rich, which is why he has penetrated his game across borders, The fact that they finance “issues” across Africa does not mean that we should concession them all of our Music Rights.

  22. They have put up noisy music outlets (hotspots)here causing Massive Noise, Mental and Psychological Pollution. In fact, they are champions in psychological violence. Let him tell us in his lyrics just how his Father remained soaked outside during heavy thunderstorms, just outside his house. I think that Umwana weshilu nankwe Lishilu. Natwishiba ati eminine pamu sebanya nomba twasebana kale. Twendela fye ubukaya. I think that this guy is using Institutional Funds just to settle scores and a personal agenda.

  25. We have Laws here.
    Good riddance.
    We do not need Nigerian Pastors to teach us the ways of the Bible.
    Nigerians are just CROOKS.
    Revisit all Nigerian Visas including that Dangote Cement Factory.
    Look at what they have done to South Africa.

  26. So we have to import Pastors from a Country that tops the world in having the highest number of crooks? The number of Nigerians who are in other countries is likely more than 15 million. Immigration officers everywhere INCLUDING in Nigeria itself get very excited when they are handed a Nigerian Passport. They are the gold standard of crookedness which had to have a code 419.

    So whatever these charlatans set up in Zambia was not a church but an investment. You do not set up a church and expect a worthy monetary return because the only money you could make is just enough for upkeep and spreading the gospel. Remember the other thief who was deported, Andrew Serr 1, the miracle money con artist?

    I would be happy if ALL Nigerian clergymen are deported. Let the Zambians STEAL from among…

    it’s very strange…the same tactics bishop banda and imakando are using to make money from poor gullible docile zambians is the same way this guy has is being doing it… in fact imakando goes to preach in Nigeria, now he has a jet.Infact the two are fighting for numbers to fill their churches which translates into more money in his pocket…it’s a pity members of his church were going to benefit if he was deported…it’s sad. who has the last laugh now? not God but elders of that church and govt.

    “you fight my pastor, you are fighting me. And if you fight me, wait for the results, there will be problems.”
    That statement belongs to witchcraft not to the bible
