Evang Kwanye in Adamawa drags Pst Marwa Tumba to court for failure to marry her

Week after the police in Adamawa State detained two Pentecostal Pastors in connection with alleged infidelity leading to bearing of two children, another Female Evangelist, Kwanye Tumba has dragged the Pastor of House Chapel in Karewa, Yola North Local Government Area of the state to Criminal Area Court II for alleged refusal to marry her.

Evangelist Kwanye told Honourable Nuhu Musa Garta led Area Court that the 28 year Pastor, Marwa Tumba, had promised to marry her, but dumped her for another girl after squandering her hard earned money and wasted her life.

She told the court that she first met the acclaimed man of God after a prayer meeting at Yolde Pate, a suburb of Yola South LGA in 2019, during which he told her that he saw a vision that she got a husband.

She said Pastor Marwa informed her that she is now his wife and immediately he asked her to start sowing a seed, explaining that she started sowing a seed as requested by the pastor by giving him the sum of #1000.

She said that the man sometimes later visited her in her apartment which she built when she was working with a nongovernmental organisation, adding that she welcomed him, cooked food for him and from there they started their relationship with a promise that he will marry her as seen in the vision.

Evangelist Kwanye narrated that her Pastor boyfriend later told her to resign from her job and sell her house before getting married, and that she agreed and tendered her resignation letter and sold the house at the sum of #500,000.00.

According to her, when the money of the house was paid to her, she immediately transferred the sum of #50,000 as tithe into the account of the pastor and used the remaining money in supporting the church from time to time until all the money got finished.


She told the court that it got to a time that he asked her to give him the list of all items as provided by tradition for their marriage which she did.

The complainant told the court that the last thing he did was he asked her to go to her parents in Michika and wait for him as he will follow her later for a proper introduction and arrangement for marriage.

She added that she spent many days in the village without him coming to do introduction as he promised to do, saying that when her parents discovered that it was a lie, they asked her to leave their house.

According to her, since then, he was no longer picking her calls again, and that when she got tired and became disappointed, she left Michika to Yola and that to her utter dismay, she could not trace the whereabout of pastor Marwa again.
