Obi addressed his congregation about the bogus accusation. He said he did not know who the actor was because he didn't watch films. He only realised Ibu was famous when people noticed him inside the church.

He also denied claims of inviting Mr Ibu to his church.

Ebuka Obi said Ibu never asked for healing prayers from him or testified on Zion Ministry's altar about the supposed miracle.

He said Mr Ibu only complained about financial challenges, so he gave him some money.

The preacher lamented the many false narratives about him created to garner views, comparing his situation to that of Pastor T.B. Joshua.
