Man donates family house to a church, renders his family members homeless
A Nigerian family has cried out for help after their son donated the family house as a seed to a popular Pentecostal church in Delta state.
The son simply identified as Shedrack was said to have returned to Nigeria last year, and he became more religious.
He donated the house as a seed to a branch of Christ Embassy, also known as LoveWorld Incorporated or Believers’ Love world in Warri.
Shedrack had initially sowed his car as a seed to the church and his family members had no problem with it.
He, however, went on to donate the family house to the church without the knowledge of family members who only got to know of the development recently.
The family had no idea their son had donated their house to his church until Shedrack’s father noticed men going around, viewing the property and was told the property now belongs to Christ Embassy and has been valued to be sold at 25 million Naira.
When the older man made enquiry, he was told the property now belonged to Christ Embassy and had been valued to be sold at N25 million.
According to reports, the house was built on land owned by the entire family and with money contributed by the whole family, though Shedrack contributed the lion’s share. The house is currently being occupied by Shedrack’s father, cousins and 4 tenants who paid rent.
In a video posted on the Internet, Shedrack’s father said he had written to the senior pastor of Christ Embassy in Warri, who promised to take action but nothing had been done about the issue after a month.
Meanwhile, the case has been reported to the police.
