Kemi praised the preacher, the General Overseer of Salvation Ministries, in a lengthy post on Instagram, revealing that she is never going to leave Port Harcourt again because of him.
The HNN blogger said it all started on Wednesday when she walked to his church to worship. She said she felt “lifted” in spirit when she heard the pastor, her one-time sworn enemy, preaching and she made sure to meet him after service.
“I knelt down and told him I was the one he imprisoned, he touched me and my asthma and migraine vanished”, Kemi said as she opened up on her encounter with him. She said Ibiyeomie told her right there that he had forgiven her and she in turn decided to bury the hatchet.
