According to them, several attempts to withdraw their principal and dividends have proved futile since last year, 2018.
EL Real Estates and Tikowre Capital are reportedly owned by one Kelvin Kwesi Kobiri, who they say has so far refused to pick his calls.
“We want our money because you call him [Mr Kobiri] and he does not pick your calls and when he does he will only insult you.
“He has become very arrogant after taking our money,” one of the aggrieved customers is quoted as saying by Myjoyonline.com.
“We know he is a man of God and so we trusted him. Some of us have been with the church for a very long time and being a senior pastor we trusted him more that is why we saved our money with him,” another unhappy customer added.

Meanwhile, the church has reportedly beefed up security at its premises in order to avoid a repeat of the chaos.
