The South African Police (SAP) has not called off their search for 'resurrected' Elliot Brighton Moyo because they still need proof of death.
Legit.ng previously reported Elliot Moyo, who is also known as Thabiso Mlanje in Zimbabwe, passed away in his father-in-law's house due to pneumonia.
However, despite his alleged second death, the SAPS have confirmed they would not drop their investigation against him.
The Sowetan reported it was believed Moyo fled to Zimbabwe after the 'resurrection miracle' in February.
Cops have since revealed they need proof that he is in fact dead for real this time before they drop the charges and if no proof of death can be provided, they would continue their search for him.
“We don’t have any evidence that he is indeed dead. We can’t make any conclusions until we have certainty about his death,” Police spokesperson Cpt Mavela Masondo said.
Moyo came into the spotlight after a video emergedwhich appeared to show Pastor Alph Lukau raising him from the dead.
It has since been reported two men were arrestedover the 'resurrection' saga. The suspects were set to appear in court on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the family of Elliot Brighton Moyo, who was believed to have been resurrected by Pastor Alph Lukau in February, opened up about the circumstances of his death.
The family of the 'resurrected man' claims he died a painful and mysterious death at the home of his father-in-law in Zimbabwe.
According to relatives close to him, Moyo (whose real name was Thabiso Proud Mlanje), bled from his nose and mouth before passing away.
It was reported that his family believes he had contracted food poisoning, but they also revealed that the circumstances around his death were strange.
