Popular Nollywood star, Jim Iyke some years back had an encounter with famous clergyman, TB Joshua who is now late, that had seen him on live television receiving deliverance.
The deliverance had happened in his visit to the Synagogue Church of All Nations prior to TB Joshua’s death.
Speaking on Channels television recently, the Nollywood actor opened up on what really happened to lead to that embarrassing moment for him on live television.
Jim Iyke revealed that the initial plan wasn’t to turn up live during the Church’s broadcast and his visit to the church was not even about him to begin with. The actor revealed the aim was to cure his mother who back then and prior to her death suffered through an ailment.
The actor revealed he went to the Synagogue Church on the advice of a friend, revealing there was no lengths he wouldn’t have gone to ensure his mother got better.
On the actor’s account, contrary to what he thought would happen, he was asked to come to the church and on live broadcast.
“I can remember I went there with my security man, my sister and PA.” Jim Iyke narrated.
“And when we got there, I was upstairs but there was constant insistence that I come to church. And I said, ‘but that wasn’t the arrangement because I kept my mum in the hospital and was expecting that you’ll lay your hand on her and she’ll get better’, but they said ‘no you must come to church.’
“Then my sister forced me and we went to church downstairs. I was there when the whole stuff of touching people started, I found it a little laughable seriously because this is a national TV and people watch from all corner.
“I can remember my sister pinched me and said, ‘you’ve got to stop.’” He added.
“And I said common men, this is childish, this is not what we came here for. Let’s move mom out of here and keep looking for medical help. Then we were about going to South Africa, there was this young man that was recommended to us, a specialist as well.
“Then the gentleman in question looked at me and saw the amusement on my face and touched me. Now I can’t explain what happened within that space of time. Within that 5 minutes whatever happened happened.
“I’m not here to start proffering explanations to spiritual things that are way beyond me. I’m a man that understand how things work. That I cannot explain and nobody can suggest anything otherwise because personally I know what happened to me.
“Within that time lacks explanations, they said I said stuffs, did stuffs I found out its extremely embarrassing.”
