Abuja Pastor, Joshua Iginla, donates N10m to Muslim lady bathed With acid; sponsors her to India
Pastor Iginla had earlier presented N5million to Jamila and gave opportunity to those who might want to contribute to saving her life.
He however said that he had the whole money and would complete it if enough money was not raised from people to complete it.
He kept to his words. He has given her another N5mllion.
Pastor Iginla also processed Jamila’s Passport and Medical Visa as well as Passports and Visas for her brother and Dr. Eghosa who are accompanying her. The money he provided covers all her bills
A statement from the church reads:
In continuation of his philanthropic gesture, Bro. Joshua Iginla, the Senior Pastor of Champions Royal Assembly, Abuja, on Sunday, gave additional N5m to complete the N10m promised to acid victim, Jamila Yusuf, who was bathed with acid by her boyfriend.
Bro. Iginla announced his sponsorship of Jamila’s medical trip to India for a reconstruction surgery, including her brother and a Medical Doctor, Dr. Osamaojo Eghosa, who would accompany them.
“I am told by medical Doctors they might stay in India for up to three months. About N900,000 came in from outside apart from the N5m that I gave.
“So bring another 10,000 U.S. dollars and four bail of N500 (N1 million) to make it N10 million. I was told someone from Abuja here donated 4,300 Rupees to that,” Bro. Iginla said.
“So by this week, they are travelling to India and when they come back, we will update you again to see what has been done.
“They have gotten the Visa and her brother and Doctor Eghosa who will accompany her there.
The money in Naira, Dollars and Rupees bills was publicly handed over to Jemila at the Church.
Bro Joshua Iginla of Champions Royal Assembly, again, stressed that he did not know Jamila from anywhere but was only showing love to her.
He also emphasised that his gesture was not to convert Jamila from Islam to Christianity.
“I want to tell you that I don’t know our sister and I need to stress that the money I am giving her is not a bait to turn Jemila from Islam to Christian.
“That’s why we did not give her Bible and we are not stopping her from going back to Muslim when she comes back but we are saying women should be respected and protected.
“It is not about converting her but about who is my neighbour. My neighbour is the one who needs my help and who I can render help.
“This is just the little we can do to preach love to all human race whether Christian, Muslim, Hindu or any religion or tribe.”
