Recall how an angry mob destroyed a church in Edo State last week after accusing the pastor for sleeping with married female church members? Read here.
Prophet Great Emokpae, the head pastor of Miracle House of God Prophetic Ministry in Ikpoba-Okha LGA of Edo State, has refuted the claims, saying he didn't sleep with Bridget, the wife of one Anthony Ehikioya who allegedly sponsored the attack.

Said the pastor:
"I was so surprised when I came to church on (that) Sunday. Meanwhile, the man had threatened that he would destroy my church. As I was going to church, I saw a crowd. Some were holding machetes and different weapons.

"I had to run for my dear life. I am not on the run. They are going to pay for everything they have destroyed because I am really innocent. Heaven and God bear me witness; I
don’t know what they have accused me about.

"Before my arrival at the church, they (mob) were there. The only things I make use of are my Bible, staff and girdle; any other thing, apart from the ones I mentioned, was brought by them."
 
Speaking on her own part, Bridget Ehikioya denied sleeping with the clergyman.

She narrated:
"I told my husband that if he thought that it (adultery) happened, he should take me to my people so that they would know what to do. He went to his people and told me not to enter his house again.”

"I have been in Ekpoma since last Friday. I am innocent and the man (pastor) is innocent. The pastor is good to me and my family. I don’t have anything with the pastor and he doesn’t have anything with me,"
