“I employed some of my church members in the hospital and I pay them good salary. However, there was a time, I went to hospital for inspection, I discovered that most of the medical equipment including drugs worth N3million have been sold by my staff. I queried the matron of the hospital about it and she talked to me anyhow. I left in anger,” he said.

“I sent my head of security to lock the place because I was not interested in any hospital again. The Following day, the matron threatened me that I must open the hospital else, I should pay her N25 million or she will blackmail me.

“I started hearing my matter on radio that I raped my staff who are nurses in the hospital. My staff who came here to testify including, Olorunlanbe Easter, Dorcas Ajiboye, Bukky Ojolo and Nafisat claimed that I raped them. They are lying because of the fraud the did in the hospital. They are doing that as a cover-up over the money they embezzled.”

Under cross examination, Prophet Adeniran disclosed that he has the picture of the equipment and drugs that were sold by the nurse, adding that he has evidence that the matron asked him to pay her N25m.

The presiding judge, Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel adjourned the matter to September 23rd 2024 for continuation of hearing.
