The deliverance session involving Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, at the Synagogue Church of All Nations has been the most discussed topic since the beginning of this week.
Many people have commented on the issue on social media platforms to the extent that not even the presidential media chat, which also held on Sunday could surpass it.
The video of the said deliverance session conducted by the controversial pastor of the church located in Ikotun, Alimosho, Lagos, went viral after it was aired. Expectedly, it has elicited reactions from Nigerians and even Ghanaians, with many wondering what on earth it was all about especially when they first came across it online.
Jim Iyke has since been under attack from colleagues, strangers and enemies alike.
According to Segun Arinze, “This Jim Iyke’s deliverance video at the synagogue looks too contrived. It’s a big embarrassment. Has anyone ever seen demons come out live and speak? Una fit stand Demons? Una carry Nollywood enter church abi? How much did he get paid? I’m just wondering? Make una stop all dis nonsense play. Haba. Stranger than fiction.”
“So, Jim Iyke got ‘delivered’ of an evil demon in a popular church recently? Mmmmm. Chai! Strange things happen. And after Jim Iyke’s deliverance, the ‘new’ Jim Iyke barked out at his PA about his shoes off his legs? Hmmmm. All I can say is that ‘whatever floats your boat, brother’. Better send those poor women you have dated to same church for same. These Nollywood stars and the rush for ‘deliverance’. Dem need am sef. God save us Producers from some of the demons we cast. I’m not insulting anyone. I just feel that ‘deliverance’ issues are personal. Not with cameras and klieg lights. De demon na star? I do think though that Jim was brave to go for deliverance. It is a first step to a total recovery. I wish him well. Honestly, I do,” was how Charles Novia put it.
Although not much has been heard from Jim Iyke as regards the story, several accounts have emerged about the incident. One of these indicates that Iyke had accompanied a friend whose mother was sick to the controversial church when he was gripped by the Holy Spirit.
