In an interview with V.T.N Business Delight on Silverbird Television, TheCable reports that Uche said the allegation is an attempt to blackmail and tarnish the preacher’s image.
“Some allegations are foolish. From my way of analysing things, there is no truth in such attempt,” he said.
“You say somebody raped you and after 16 years, you are out to report. What is wrong? Maybe you demanded money or you wanted some payment and the person is not able to give you, and then you chose to blackmail the person. Why do you punish somebody for a sin committed 16 years ago?

“Our lord Jesus Christ says any sinner that believes is forgiven. He called us and he said repent for the kingdom of God is at hand. How do you go and tarnish the image of a man who committed something some years ago. Is it relevant?”
