SPAC Nation, a UK based Pentecostal lead church by Nigerian pastor Tobi Adegboyega, 38, whose church is in the center of an investigation by the Met Police for alleged fraud.
A whistleblower has come forward to denounce the scheme that is operated at the church where young people are told to “sow Seeds” in return of miracles and financial blessings.
According to the Guardian, a 20-year-old girl had given £13,000 to the church from her student loans and other business loans that was acquired by the help of other church leaders.
On Wednesday, the Metropolitan police said: “We have received allegations that pertain to potential fraud and other possible offences that relate to Spac Nation. Officers are reviewing the allegations to identify if any criminal offences have potentially been committed. Once this review is complete, a decision will be made as to whether a criminal investigation is launched. We cannot comment any further at this time.”
A Twitter account operated from the UK called theexposerpt2 has been sharing clips of people who are still in the ‘cult like’ organization to expose their activities.
A quite distributing video clip of a lady asking the youth to borrow or even steal money to bring to the church for the pastor’s birthday also made a hit on social media.
Spac Nation’s accounts on the Charity Commission shows report of income of £1.17m and expenditure of £1.19m in 2018.
“It is important that the Met police look into these allegations, we believe it will put things to rest. Although the Met police have not officially contacted Spac Nation, we will cooperate with any investigation that keeps young people safe. =” Daniel Ogoloma, spokesman for Spac Nation.
“Our organisation has worked according to the law and we will keep respecting the law of the land. We will however not condone any illegality of any leader or individual and that’s why we welcome all investigations or enquiries.” he further added
The Charity Commission also contacted SPAC Nation over the alleged support of Tory Council Candidate: Jayde Edwards.
SPAC Nation is not only accused of running a cult with young people who will dedicate their lives and money to a faith organization they believe in, is not just alarming but when political issues invlived the matter is deeper than what we have witnessed.
The leader of the Christian group, SPAC Nation started off by helping tackle gun knife crimes in the UK, to later discover the same organization that is bringing black kids to the path of truth and sanctity is now embezzled in financial issues, the veracity and findings will emerge as the law takes its course.
The Church denies all allegations and is opened for investigation.
