Popular Blogger Linda Ikeji Replies Pastor Chris Kwakpovwe Of "OUR DAILY MANNER" Over Blackmail Accusation

Our very own Naija Popular blogger, Linda Ikeji who describes herself as a “self-made millionaire” has been allegedly accused by Pastor Chris Kwakpovwe, author of Our Daily Manna devotional and senior pastor of Our Daily Manna Mountain Prayer Ministry, of blackmail.


Ardent followers of his daily devotional will recall that on Page 56 of the 22nd-July edition of his devotional, the pastor wrote that one Linda, a blogger and Facebook activist has been sending him several text messages, asking for an undisclosed amount of money else she would work with journalists all over the world to destroy his ministry. Well, at first, it was easy to believe that the man of God may not have been referring to Linda Ikeji; after all, he did not actually print her full name. But with the current rebuttal on her blog just a day after her name was mentioned in the devotional, it now appears there may be some truth in the matter.
