The controversial preacher forcefully denied the charges of fraud, as he made his way home. He told reporters that he had never met his accuser and so could not have defrauded him.

"As I looked at him at the police station, I asked myself 'how can a young man who has probably never been to school, have that much money to be given to me?'"

Obinim said that fraud charges formed part of efforts to tarnish his reputation, vowing that God would fight for him.

"If I am a true man of God, then let my God speak for me. You cannot disgrace me like this and go free. My God will speak and you will all see what will happen to them and their families,” he said

Earlier on  Wednesday, Obinim's wife, Florence, sent out words of encouragement to him as he prepared to spend a second night in jail.
