Apraku 'My Daughter' thrown out of residence

By myjoyonline

Popular Christian radio preacher, Evangelist Kweku Apraku was early Thursday morning ejected from his residence at East Legon by his landlord.

Apraku, affectionately called “my daughter”, is the General Overseer of his church which was formerly called King Jesus Evangelistic Ministry, at Baatsona on the Spintex Road in Accra.

Evangelist Apraku, reported to be presently out of the country, has duly been notified by his family. Other family sources suggested that, Pastor Apraku could be somewhere in the Eastern Region.

When Asempa News got to the residence, all his personal possessions; electrical appliances, furniture, clothes, among others were in front of the house, while his two daughters and other tenants in the house stood helpless.

One of the daughters, who gave her name as Abena Sarfowaa, said Pastor Apraku does not owe the Land Lord, but they did not know the reason for his ejection.

“My dad is not even owing electricity bill, so we don't know why he is being ejected” she told ASEMPA FMASEMPA FM. She said her father took over the uncompleted house from the land lord, completed it and has been living in it for a couple of years now until the fateful morning. She suspected the land lord must have plans to rent the house to a new tenant.

The landlord on his part told Joy News he had had problems with Apraku's conduct in the house, including bringing too many people to the house against agreed terms, he did not honour his rent obligations on time, and he lived in the house did whatever he wanted.

That, he said, is the reason he has ejected his tenant, who he agreed does not owe in rent.

Apraku's church has had a series of change of name, from the King Jesus Evangelistic Ministry to King Jesus Free Bred Ministry and presently known as Free Bred Ministries International.
