"I was working. I worked as a security officer after I was trained as a security guard at Burns International Security Services Limited, United Kingdom. I was trained as an armed guard. When I moved to the US, I also worked with them for a while."

He said he became a very successful electronics dealer in the US. His words:

"As I earlier said, I worked with Burns and I also worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation Police Department before I resigned because God called me to be a pastor. That was when I resigned in Los Angeles after working for about two years. Also, I had a store in Orange County, California, which was predominantly occupied by whites, no blacks lived there. In Orange County, I sold sophisticated electronics. I was always going to Japan to buy electronics and sell them. I was also the only black in Orange County at the time who made it (was successful)."

He was blessed with four children in the USA, but he does not know where they are right now. He said:

He got sick and returned to Nigeria

Narrating how he got sick and eventually returned to Nigeria, Pastor Ibironke said his American wife left him when he couldn't recover. He was married in Nigeria with two children before moving abroad. His Nigerian wife had to leave his house because she was kicked out by relatives after he left for the UK. His first son from his Nigerian wife is now 43 years old.

He told how he got sick in America:

"My wife told me that one midnight after making love together and we slept, I started barking like a dog, and that I was foaming in my mouth. She told me that she was scared, called for help and an ambulance was called and they rushed me to Cal State Teaching Hospital, California. I was there for 14 months and the doctors couldn’t detect what was wrong with me. Nigerians over there (in the US) who saw me and my condition said it was a spiritual attack and advised that I be taken back to Nigeria for treatment."
