It will be recalled that Jim Iyke’s career and reputation suffered a setback after a video showing him being delivered of a demonic influence at the SCOAN church surfaced online.
But in a recent interview with Channels TV, the actor clarifies the controversy disclosing that it was a desperate search for his ailing mother that led him to T.B Joshua’s church. Contrary to popular claims, he insists that he was not paid to make the appearance but was taken advantage of.
According to Jim Iyke, his mother’s health condition was so bad that he was ready to go to hell in search of cure for her. The actor disclosed that he later took his late mum to the Synagogue Church for deliverance after someone advised him to do so. Hear him:
“At that point even if I’m told there’ll be a cure in hell I’ll go. You are talking about your mother. So we went.
“I can remember I went there with my security man, my sister and PA. And when we got there, I was upstairs but there was constant insistence that I come to church. And I said, ‘but that wasn’t the arrangement because I kept my mum in the hospital and was expecting that you’ll lay your hand on her and she’ll get better’, but they said ‘no you must come to church.’
“Then my sister forced me and we went to church downstairs. I was there when the whole stuff of touching people started, I found it a little laughable seriously because this is a national TV and people watch from all corner. I can remember my sister pinched me and said, ‘you’ve got to stop’.
“And I said common men, this is childish, this is not what we came here for. Let’s move mom out of here and keep looking for medical help. Then we were about going to South Africa, there was this young man that was recommended to us, a specialist as well.
“Then the gentleman in question looked at me and saw the amusement on my face and touched me. Now I can’t explain what happened within that space of time. Within that 5 minutes, whatever happened happened.
“I’m not here to start proffering explanations to spiritual things that are way beyond me. I’m a man that understands how things work. That I cannot explain and nobody can suggest anything otherwise because personally, I know what happened to me within that time lacks explanations. They said I said stuffs, did stuffs I found it extremely embarrassing.”
