According to The Independent, the Pastor who is recuperating in a hospital, squashed speculations that he was installed as a bishop at a secret location shortly after the collapse of the church building.
“Let nobody believe the speculation that I was enthroned as the bishop; the enthronement was cancelled completely and I am no longer interested in being a bishop.
“Please, this is not the time to crucify me; I am still your brother. Reigners Church family, I am still your pastor. The enthronement was cancelled completely and I am not interested.
