Wow! See what a Nigerian Pastor donated to a Woman and a Nollywood actor
Pastor Joshua Iginla of Champions Royal Assembly, Abuja, have never ceased to surprise us with his donations.
This time he has given N5 million to Jamila Yusuf, a 26 year old woman who was allegedly bathed with acid by her fiance. Iginla also gave a new Peugeot 501 to a Nollywood actor, Mr Ayo Emmanuel, popularly known as “Nollywood Policeman”.
Pastor Joshua said he will complete the full money for the surgery by next week with another N5 million if the balance was not raised by then. “I think Nigerians should rise up to defend the rights of women; to lay your hands on a woman is injustice. “I just don’t know how a man can do this (pour acid) on a lady; some people are just animals; how can you disfigure a lady like this."
“We have hundreds of them (women) like this that they have done this wickedness to. “I am not doing this for her because she is a member of my Church; I don’t know her from anywhere; she’s even a Muslim and not a Christian. We are only doing this to preach love and not to convert her to Christianity after her surgery in India,” he said. The Cleric said he would sponsor the trip, feeding and everything that was required for her to live a normal life. We are working to get them visa this week to go to India; we will pay every bill."
