A UK-based Kenyan Pastor, Climate Irungu Wiseman is currently under investigation in the United Kingdom for selling an oil he claimed could protect his members and the public against Coronavirus.
According to reports, Irungu who is the founder of Bishop Climate Ministries in Camberwell District in South London, sold a bottle of the controversial protection oil at £91 (N40,950) each and he was accused of exploiting the public by selling the so-called “plague protection” kits, consisting of oil and red yarn.
In a post shared on March 21, Bishop Climate Irungu Wiseman said that he was instructed by the Lord to prepare an oil “mixed with cedar wood, hyssop, and prayer” for the pandemic.
While advertising his protection product online he wrote;
“It is by faith that you can be saved from the Coronavirus pandemic by covering yourself with the Divine Plague Protection Oil and wearing the Scarlet Yarn on your body.”
“As you use this oil, along with a special scarlet yarn, every coronavirus and any other deadly thing will pass over you.”
The charities regulator has now launched an urgent probe into the Camberwell church over its sale of the oil it claimed could protect from coronavirus.
A spokesperson of the agency said;
“We are looking into the serious concern about Kingdom Church GB’s alleged sale of false COVID-19 protection devices, as a matter of urgency.
“We have opened a regulatory compliance case to assess the matter, and will be liaising as appropriate with other agencies.”
Southwark Council also confirmed that the church is being investigated over the products. Councillor Victoria Mills said in a statement;
“It is wrong for anyone to exploit people’s fears at this time of high anxiety and we encourage people to report any issues like this to London Trading Standards.
“This particular issue is already under investigation by our teams. There are many scams relating to Covid-19 and the council will be working hard to support consumers to be on guard for bogus test kits, cures and treatments and other financial scams.”
Defending himself, Mr Wiseman told the PA news agency that he has sold 1,000 of the kits, and the price tag was only to cover the cost of ingredients, packaging, and posting.
“What is so wrong about putting into practice what the Bible says.”

Popular socialite, Cubana Chief Priest has reacted to the recent social media campaign which has seen many people including the rich and famous being called out for rape.
In his Instagram post, the club manager stated that rape victims who wait for a rapist to get rich or famous before speaking out are gold digging.
He also appealed to parents to teach their children how to speak up to ensure justice is served, because silence endangers others.
Cubana Chief Priest wrote;
“Waiting For A Rapist To Blow Or Get Rich Before Speaking Out Or Reporting To The Right Authorities Is An Act Of Gold Digging N Dragging, Parents We Have To Teach Our Children How To Speak Up Immediately It Helps Authorities In Proper Investigation To Get Justice Served, Why Did It Take You So Much Time To Report What Caused You Severe Pain ?

Man Arraigned For Allegedly Raping His 7-Month-Old Daughter Starting From When She Was 3 Months Old
A 38-year-old man has been arraigned before a Makurdi Chief Magistrate court for allegedly raping his seven-month-old daughter.
The father, named Mr. Simon Emeka, is alleged to have raped daughter Prosper Emeka starting from when she was only 3 months old.
When the case came up in court on Friday, June 5, prosecuting police officer, Sergeant Friday Kanshio told the court that on June 1st, 2020, one Ms. Josephine Habba of No. 34 Modern Market Road Makurdi reported the matter at the Nigerian Police Force ‘D’ Division, Makurdi.
Kanshio said Habba had complained that on the same date, she went to Jestic Hospital in Makurdi with her daughter for treatment and heard one Mrs Favour Emeka crying and telling a nurse that her seven months old baby girl named Prosper Emeka was raped by her husband, Simon Emeka. It was alleged that the accused had been raping the baby since she was three months old.
Kanshio said during police investigation, the suspect was arrested for committing the crime which is contrary to sections 391 and 284 of the penal code law of Benue State.
When the charge was read to him, the accused pleaded not guilty to the charge. However, no plea was taken for want of jurisdiction.
The prosecuting police officer told the court that investigation into the matter was still on and asked for another date to enable the prosecution prove its case.
The trial Magistrate, Mr. Isaac Ajim remanded the accused at the Nigerian Correctional Centre and adjourned the case to August 31, 2020, for further mention.
