Master Obumneme Akunyili, the son of Late Dr Chike Akunyili has shade some lights on the events which led to the death of the mother, Dr Dora Akunyili, the former Director General of NAFDAC.
According to Obum, who is currently the Director General at Anambra State Project Monitoring and Management Office, she said that her mom seek prayer help from well known preachers including Pastor Adeboye, after she was diagnosed with a stage 4 cancer.
Obum added that all the efforts which were made in a bid to get help for their mother were futile, adding that the said men of God used the afflictions of their mother to milk her dry and give her false hope of healings and miracles.
Obunaeme made thee revelations during an interview with Chude Jidonwo, he described what those men of God did to her mother as “Divine Hustle” below are excerpts of his words from the interview
“I saw the hustle. I feel like, how you tell your friend when there’s a job, I feel when there’s a public figure, all these pastors, their friends are like, ‘there’s this woman that is dying, we need to go and milk that puppy’.”
“So, I felt it was a racket. In Nigeria, we don’t call it crime or anything, but I felt there was a hustle.”
He revealed that his mother spent a lof of money, sowed all the seeds as the religious leaders promised her that she will be healed. He said Dora Akunyili fought to live because she believed her work here was not done.
He added that his mother’s faith could move mountains and she was absolutely certain that she would live as the men of God assured her.
“She went to, is it Pastor Adeboye’s place in Lagos for like a week? The whole shebang. She came back and said they need to do a scan that God has healed her.
“And I remember my father was crying when he was taking her to do the scan. He knew what they would see. And he wasn’t trying to shut it down, he was trying to dampen expectations.
“But my mum, you know how someone is like ‘God has healed me’. And they go and they see the mass of the cancer there, grown larger, and my mum just became a shell for like three days. “And you just see someone, a larger-than-life figure just whittling away every day.”
