Why Chris Okotie’s Ex-Pianist, Dafiaghor Okiotor, Might Be Signing His Own Death Warrant
By Pas Chikero
Sometimes you wonder why there is something called Christendom when there seem to be no unity? Christianity is the only religion I know that dogs comfortably chew their fellow dogs! Wondering why, I discovered that it is because a lot of people are in it for the money and where money is involved, men turn carnivorous!
You hardly hear that a Muslim is washing the dirty and oozing pants of a fellow Muslim in the town hall . When Muslims sponsor terrorist groups or their Imams commit sins, nobody talks about them. It doesn’t mean that they don’t have bad eggs but they know that it is dangerous for a house to be divided against itself!
The disgraceful way Chris Okotie’s pianist is fighting for his so called N39 Million is despicable ! I don’t go to Household of God Church but there is a way one goes about his matter and you know what his body language is really saying. Dafiaghor Okiotor should know that he is dancing to a dangerous song. Did you ask why? When a matter involves a man of God, handling it with the wisdom of men is like slitting your own throat with a sharp blade! If you say ‘many of them are fake’ then hear this, it is not your place to judge them. Why? Because God is the only one who can judge his servants, He called them not you. Secondly, sometimes what you go about shouting at the mountain top, the servant could have knelt down , asked for forgiveness and God might have forgiven him. Talking about it as a saint is pouring burning coal on yourself!
As a wounded Lion, Dafiaghor Okiotor is going to and fro looking for who tell why he left Chris Okotie. What he is talking about today happened YEARS AGO!
He claims he is being owed N39 million for working 14 years for the church and that he left the church because he discovered Okotie’s romance with some society women. I once met one of the police attaches who worked for Rev. Chris during the period Okiotor is talking about, he told me when this case was brought up that Okiotor was working for the church and after sometime he abandoned the church. When Chris Okotie settled the faithful ones with millions and cars, he came back to the church to demand for his share of the cake but too late he missed out! This is the reason he has been crying for settlement! The man also said while he was working for the church, Chris Okotie was paying Okiotor’s house rent and taking care of him. This was not enough for him, he left for another church where he thought he could get a better package only to miss out. Now if this is true then that means there is another side to this whole story.
40-year-old Okiotor, first demonstrated at Rev. Chris Okotie’s church on July 15 , 2012 claiming to be owed N39 million as payment for work done in the church over a 14 year period.
According to reports, Okiotor, who just like Okotie is Urhobo was jailed for about three weeks but reportedly returned to the church to stage another protest.
Adeolu Omotayo and Harold Turay, members and guards of the church, testified against him in court. Omotayo said Okiotor had sent two letters threatening to disrupt the church, reports claim.
“He made good his threats on that Sunday as he suddenly appeared and became disorderly and raucous at the church entrance. He sang songs in his native language. The reverend had to stop sermonizing, and the service was stopped. We called the policemen at Area ‘F’, and they arrested him.”
“But on the evening of that same day, Okiotor came back to the church. He was arrested again and later charged to court,” Omotayo said.
Turay, said, “When Okiotor protested at the church, he wore a white T-shirt. Inscribed on it was, ‘Rev. Okotie, you either pay me, or kill me. He was so disorderly and noisy that he disrupted the service.”
The truth is, a Christian who can stage drama series while church service is going on can do anything!
If actually he is being owed, I have nothing against his demand for payment but going about saying Chris Okotie was having affair with top society women is very dangerous. Not because Chris Okotie could harm him but because of God! When Isrealites sinned against God in Old Testament, God allows a nation to punish them then when they repent, He punishes the nation for destroying his chosen people!
Let’s not use our own hand to destroy what we believe in.
