The founder of Jehovah’s Eye Salvation Ministry, Prophet Godwin Ikuru has recounted the many threats he got for supporting the candidacy of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and how he almost lost his life.

The Ijaw-born Lagos-based cleric described his experience during the electioneering as near-death owing to the many threats to his life from sworn traducers of Tinubu.

According to reports, during the electioneering campaign, the Prophet Ikuru who was popular for his concise prophesies and spiritual support for Tinubu was one of the men of God who went all out to promote Tinubu’s aspiration.

Speaking to journalists yesterday, Prophet Ikuru said revelations from God and his belief in Tinubu’s capacity kept him on track.

His words: “Supporting Asiwaju is one of the most difficult and threatening things I ever did in my life, I received life-threatening calls on many occasions.

“They threatened to kill me if I didn’t exit the movement. I was not daunted because I know that my life is in the hands of God who called me to do his work”

About the Muslim-Muslim ticket, Prophet Ikuru said it was one of the toughest ideologies he ever defended as he explained that “pastors and Christian bodies in Nigeria made me enemies because of this.
