Evang. Ebuka Obi

An Abuja Chief Magistrate Court, sitting at Wuse Zone 6, has extended the remand of social media content creator Mr. Chizorom Harrison Ofoegbu, popularly known as Ijele Speaks, at Keffi Correctional Center. The remand is in connection with his alleged involvement in cybercrimes.

Chief Magistrate Emmanuel Iyanna ordered Ofoegbu to remain in custody until April 12, pending the court’s ruling on his bail applicationapplication.


Ofoegbu is facing charges of criminal intimidation, threat to life, cyberstalking, and cyberbullying against Evangelist Ebuka Obi, the founder and spiritual director of Zion Prayer Movement.

During Monday’s proceedings, Ofoegbu’s counsel, Mr. Marvin Omorogbe, requested the court to set aside the remand order and release his client from Keffi Correctional Center. Alternatively, he urged the court to grant bail to Ofoegbu.

Omorogbe argued that the Police misrepresented facts, leading to the remand order against his client. He emphasized that the Police falsely claimed to have filed a criminal charge against Ofoegbu before a Federal High Court in Abuja.

In response, police lawyer Mr. Obiora Ejiofor opposed the bail application, stating that there was insufficient evidence to warrant bail. He informed the court that the Police had filed a 4-count criminal charge against Ofoegbu at the Federal High Court in Abuja, as the Magistrate court lacked jurisdiction for the charges.

Omorogbe countered by alleging that the exhibits attached to the police’s counter affidavit were forged, urging the court not to give them credence.

He also argued that the remand order obtained by the police had expired due to lack of renewal.

After hearing arguments from both sides, Chief Magistrate Iyanna adjourned the matter for ruling.

Ofoegbu’s arrest stemmed from allegations that he threatened to kill Evangelist Ebuka Obi and made inflammatory remarks on social media. These actions led to a petition to the Inspector General of Police, resulting in Ofoegbu’s arrest and detention in Abuja.
