IBADAN, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – The founder of RIG Nation Church, Prophet Tomi Arayomi has recounted his ordeal with US immigration authorities after he was detained by the Department of State Service (DSS).
The visionary founder of RIG Nation Television, his wife Tamar, and an aide were last week arrested in Abuja. But there were later released (except the aide), prompting him to leave the country with his family. The secret police did not comment on the development and the reason for the arrest.
Days after that, the cleric revealed that he was detained in Houston, US, upon arrival.
“I wasn’t going to share this story but I was detained in Houston on arrival for the first time ever! I don’t know the particulars of why I was detained or if there was any correlation with my Nigerian arrest all I know is that within minutes of me landing my passport was confiscated and I was being led to a detention room by an officer,” he recounted in a Friday Facebook post.
“Just as the door was opening another immigration officer looked at me and said, ‘Prophet, what are you doing in here!’ I said, ‘I don’t know!’
“Within seconds she took my passport from the officer and whispered in his ear. She then walked right past me in the detention centre as if she didn’t even know me anymore. I tried to catch her eye to say thank you but she walked right past me.
“Within 60 seconds I was out! I don’t know if that woman was human or Angel all I know is God is good! And the same God who goes before me, will go before you, satan cannot cage your assignment! In Jesus Name! I declare, you are unstoppable!!! To that woman, human or Angel, I thank God for you!
Repeat after me! ‘Where God has sent me, Satan cannot stop me!!!’”
