It was indeed a thanksgiving day for the shepherd-in-charge of Genesis Model International, Prophet Israel Oladele Ogundipe few weeks ago when he escaped a terror attack from unknown men of the underworld.
The house of the man of God who is still preparing for his church’s harvest entitled New Dawn was invaded few weeks ago by some armed robbers, killing some of his wild dogs and injuring his co-habitant.
According to a source, the robbers bombarded the posh building located at Odewale, Dalemo, Ogun State at around 1am on this black day, shooting sporadically and calling the name of the man of God. But with the aggressiveness of the wild dogs the robbers could not gain entrance into the building but shot at sight in order to pave way.
But by dint of luck, despite being hit by bullets, some of the dogs battled to survive and fought the thieves until they left.
According to reports, a few of the people living with the prophet were injured by the bullets and were instantly rushed to the hospital.
When contacted, the Celestial Church of Christ Prophet who is currently focused on his December 15th harvest programme called ‘Festival of Grace’ narrated his ordeal to benconews.com: “Yes it is true that I was attacked by some armed robbers. But that is a thing of the past; I don’t want to dwell on that now. Let’s give God all the glory and focus on His work.
Report has it that this is not the first time robbers will be visiting the man of God. Years back, robbers and some speculated assassins also invaded his house for scrupulous reasons. But in all, the prophet survived the devilish machinations.
However, benconews.com won’t be surprised if his December 15th harvest festival which we learnt will feature prominent gospel singers; Atorise, Yinka Ayefele and many is to be converted to a thanksgiving event. Oops!
