South African preacher Pastor Alph Lukau who is currently trending for his resurrection video which has gone viral, we are informed has been sued for faking the video.
According to a report sighted, Prophet Alph Lukau, who is the leader of Alleluia Ministries International (AMI), is being sued by three Johannesburg-based funeral homes.
The prophet made use of their hearse in the performance which has apparently caused the companies irreparable “reputational damage” according to the complainants.
The funeral homes in question are the Kings & Queens, Black Phoenix and Kingdom Blue – state that they were tricked into aiding with the ceremony.
Representatives from the church had apparently misled and lied to the funeral homes about the use of their services. This contention forms the basis for the lawsuit which, according to the funeral services companies, has already been filed against Prophet Alph Lukau.
First to issue its statement was the Kings and Queens Funeral service saying:
“As kings and Queens Funeral Services, we would like to distance ourselves from the supposed resurrection of a deceased man who allegedly was at our mortuary.
We were approached by alleged family members of the deceased who informed us they had encountered a dispute with a different funeral service provider and would like to use our transport services which we offered them.
We did not supply the coffin neither did we store the deceased at our mortuary and no paperwork was processed by Kings and Queens Funerals. As a Funeral Services Provider we do not offer services without documentation, neither do we repatriate bodies without any paperwork.
We are in the process of taking legal action for this malicious damage to our image.”
Black Phoenix Funerals also took to Facebook to deny that they had anything to do with the ‘resurrection’, saying:
“It has regrettably come to our attention that Black Phoenix Funerals has been purported to have sold a casket to Alleluia Ministries Church.
Black Phoenix Funerals would like to dissociate itself from any involvement in the matter. The code of ethics in the funeral industry does not allow for direct sales of coffins to the public and we adhere to these ethics.”
