Why UK Govt. Shutdown Pastor Tobi Adegboyega’s SPAC Nation Church

Why UK Govt. Shutdown Pastor Tobi Adegboyega's SPAC Nation Church

A London-based church group, Salvation Proclaimer Ministries Limited (SPAC Nation) owned by flamboyant Nigerian Pastor Tobi Adegboyega, has been ordered to shut down their operations after failing to properly account for more than £1.87m of outgoings, and operating with lack of transparency.

 

SPAC Nation which was incorporated in 2012 to advance Christianity, was wound up in a High Court on 9 June 2022 before Judge Burton, government agency The Insolvency Service announced on Friday June 17.

 

The enquiries found that SPAC Nation failed to comply or only partially complied with statuary requirements, such as providing data to support claimed donations and accounting records in support of £1.87 million of expenditure.

 

In the two years to 31st December 2019, the company’s financial statements set out £610,000 of rent, despite not having a single base of its own as they would hire venues across London to hold services.

Investigators also interviewed one of the company’s directors, Adedapo Olugbenga Adegboyega, also known as Pastor Dapo, who claimed the church group had over 2,000 members and 200 ordained ministers and pastors. However, he failed to provide information to support these claims.

 

The court concluded that the church, once hailed by UK politicians as a beacon of hope for ex-gang members, operated with a lack of transparency, filed suspicious or incorrect accounts, and was insolvent at the time of the hearing.

 

Edna Okhiria, chief investigator for the Insolvency Service, said:

 

“While SPAC Nation claimed it had noble intentions to support vulnerable and young people, our enquiries uncovered a different side of the charity.

“There were clear concerns around how the church group managed its affairs and SPAC Nation failed to properly account for income received from donations and other expenditure.

“The court recognised the severity of SPAC Nation’s actions and this sends a strong message that proper records and accounts must be maintained, even if you’re a charity.”

 

Though an organisation can be forced to adminstratively close and cease to exist under that name on the Companies House register, companies can appear under a different name and this has previously been known to happen.

 

SPAC Nation rebranded as Nxtion Family in June 2020, a month after head pastor Tobi Adeboyega announced he was stepping down as leader, though he has remained at the helm of the organisation.

CHACHA EKE FAANI : I am sorry for living false life, I am done with my marriage

Chacha Eke Faani has once again announced the end of her marriage to Filmmaker husband.

NAIJA NEWS NG reports that Chacha Eke Faani in October 2020 told her fans on social media that her marriage had ended.

“You will say I am crazy but I am not. This video is to let the world know that I am done with the marriage. I don’t have a lot to prove that I am done with him but I am done. I’m done. I am leaving with my life finally. I can’t say a lot now. You will hear my story.” she said.

After few days, the Nollywood actress in another video while in a hospital debunked the news that her marriage crashed due to domestic violence and said she was diagnosed with “Bipolar disorder”.

She also addressed her brother , IK Eke, alongside former actresses Georgina Onuoha and Victoria Inyama for getting involved in her marriage issue.

On June 27, Chacha Eke has shared another troubling message that suggests the marriage has ended. She said she is “living a lie” and that she is done with the marriage.

She wrote;
NOW ALIVE OR LEAVE AS A CORPSE

Many have died pretending all is well whilst wishing, hoping and praying for a better tomorrow.

I don’t want to “die” or go inexplicably “missing”.

I sincerely and publicly apologize for living a lie these past years.True to random speculations, there has been trouble in my “perceived paradise”.

For the 2nd time in 2years, I am here again on social media boldly declaring that I am done with my marriage. My long overdue/relentless stance on this is of course no news to Austin Faani, the doctors and my parents.

If push comes to shove & suddenly i am incommunicado; my lawyers, the welfare department and the Nigerian police force have my testimonials in recorded video clips/statements set for public release on all social media apps and national newspapers.
