A magistrate court sitting at the West of Mines in Jos has admitted more exhibits in evidence against the founder of Garden of Prayer Miracle Ministry, Prophet Moses Essenssien, despite the objection by his lawyer, Martins Ezeudu to the admissibility of all the evidence.
The prophet is standing trial alongside one Paul Neme, who is his personal Assistant and Secretary of his church.
Prophet Moses Essenssien who was initially operating his church in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau state before relocating to Nasarawa state is answering to a case of sexual assault on a female member of his church and killing of her father and mother in-law.
They reportedly died after drinking anointing oil and water given to them by the prophet.
Trial justice, Zakka Dung admitted the exhibits which the police prosecutor, A S Kwara tendered through the 4th witness, Abayomi Adewumi.
Justice Zakka Dung thereafter agreed with the prosecution that all the exhibits were relevant to the matter and therefore should be admitted in court, before adjourning to July 12, 2023 for continuation of hearing.
