Former governor of Abia State and Chief Whip of the Senate, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, said Pastor Chris Oyakhilome foretold his incarceration.
Senator Kalu spent days behind bar following his sentence for 12 years in December 2019 after he was convicted of fraud but the judgement was later overturned by the Supreme Court on the grounds that the trial judge, Justice Mohammed Idris, had been elevated to the Appeal Court.
The former governor on Sunday during a Thanksgiving Service at Christ Embassy, Ikeja, said Pastor Oyakhilome saw his incarceration coming spiritually and told him of it but he disagreed with him.
“Pastor Chris told me that I will go to prison but I didn’t believe that can happen. I remember that I visited him; and after praying here in this church, I was about to go to the airport to catch my flight to Abuja.
“He told me that he had something to tell me but that unfortunately it is bad news. You will go to prison, and i said it was impossible.”
