Posting on his Facebook page before departing for Nigeria, Prophet Amata paid tribute to his lawyers for the legal advice.
“Glory to Jesus. When Jesus says yes no one can no.l Am vindicated..Amen and Amen. God bless u all,” he wrote.
The Lusaka Magistrate Court on Monday acquitted Prophet Amata, 42, of two charges of drug trafficking of trafficking and importation of ephedrine, a prohibited drug, following the failure by state prosecutors to prove the charge.
The Nigerian prophet was arrested on January 25 upon arrival at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Lusaka for allegedly trafficking 26.29 kilogram of ephedrine.
Tutwa Ngulube, the Nigerian prophet’s lawyer told Journalists after the acquittal that it was evident from the start that the case would not go anywhere.
He said he will sit down with his client on the way forward, which may include the possibility of suing the state for unlawful prosecution.
