During cross-examination by state counsel Babajide Boye, Daniel denied the charges and alleged that the alleged victims had conspired against him.

He also denied giving N100,000 to one of the alleged victims for medical treatment.

Defendant Claims He Is Not a Manipulator

Daniel denied being a manipulator, saying that he is a pastor who does not use power to counsel people.

He said that he is trained to counsel and uses wisdom and the leading of the spirit.

Defendant Denies Tampering with Evidence

Daniel also denied tampering with WhatsApp messages between him and one of the alleged survivors.

Court Adjourns for Final Addresses

Justice Rahman Oshodi admitted some extrajudicial statements from the defense counsel in evidence and marked them Exhibits E1 to E7.

Oshodi adjourned the case until December 20 for adoption of final written addresses by defense and prosecution counsel.
