I married third wife to save my first wife from death -Jagaban of the Spiritual

The General Overseer of Vineyard of Deliverance Ministry, Prophet Joseph Apata, has revealed how he became a polygamist.

He also talked about his large family comprising eight biological children born by his three wives and how he keeps his women sexually satisfied with between “20 and 70 rounds” of sex “in a day” whenever he isn’t fasting.

I’m neither a bishop nor a pastor, but I’m a prophet. my critics should show me a place in the Bible that says a prophet must be a husband to one wife.

The Ebira, Kogi State-born prophet said he got married to his first wife, Margaret Tani Apata, in December 1999 at 27.

First marriage

“She was about 22 years old when we wedded. I met her in 1998. She started attending my church when we were still worshipping under the tree. She was an orphan and an undergraduate. God told me to marry her and see her through school. After we married, we struggled a lot and experienced lack and poverty.

“In 2011, I told God that I needed help. God told me that what a woman destroyed in my hand, it was another woman who would repair it.

Second wife

“God instructed me to marry a widow in my church then. I told God that I got married as a virgin and could do no such thing. But on January 17, 2011, my birthday, I called my first wife and told her that I wanted to marry the widow as my second wife.

“We had five children then; three girls and two boys. My first wife got me arrested and I was taken to the police station. I told the police officers the same thing, that I must obey God. The police told her that I was adamant and she was free to divorce me.

“As for me, I don’t believe in the court, I pay my wives’ bride prices and bring them to church for blessing. My first wife chose to remain with me.

Second wife is my favourite

“That was how I took the second wife in 2011 and before we knew it, millions started coming in.

“We were in a canopy, but we bought the property of the church running into millions of naira and I started riding a Prado SUV.

“About 70 per cent of our members left the church because I took a second wife. But God then added more members.

“When people saw that I had become a millionaire, they started coming back to the church and I started seeing the crowd again.

“My second wife’s name is Omowunmi Apata. She is my favourite. If you tell her that you want to kill her for me, she will yield her neck. If I had missed that woman, God would not allow me to enter heaven.

“My second wife has a son for me and two children from her previous marriage to her late Polish husband.”

Third wife

Explaining why he took a third wife, Apata said, “In my first wife’s family, they don’t normally live long. When she got sick and everybody was afraid, I told God that I didn’t want her to die. So, God told me to bring in a third wife and he would make me a billionaire and my first wife would not die.”

As to what the reaction of his first and second wives was when he wanted to take the third wife, Apata said, “My wives had already known me well that I don’t make decisions without God’s instruction.

“So, I told them that that was what God wanted me to do. That was in 2020. We went to pay her bride price in Benin in March 2020. She has two children now.”

Source of wealth

The self-described full-time prophet says his church members are the source of his wealth.

“My members are my sources of wealth. My members are very good to me. They take care of my needs and send me millions randomly.

“One may call me and give me N10m, while another may give me N5m. They are the ones God is using for me. We don’t preach tithes or offerings, but my members are crazy givers.”

More wives, possibly

On the probability that he might marry another wife, Apata said, “I didn’t promise anybody that, but the condition is that if she has access to what I need and she’s stranded as a woman who needs a man over her, why not? Let her come and be a part of the family. I have a large heart.”

Sexually satisfying three wives

On how he satisfies his wives sexually, the self-described ‘Jagaban of the Spiritual’ says, “If I’m not fasting, they would be the ones running.

My members are my sources of wealth. My members are very good to me. They take care of my needs and send me millions randomly.

“One may call me and give me N10m, while another may give me N5m.

“I can do 20 or 70 rounds in a day. Because I’m fasting, I tell them that I’ll be the one coming to them. When I come to them, they will see ‘star and moon’. That is what they always ask for. They will never forget it till when I come again. That has been a very wonderful technique.”

Neither a pastor, nor a bishop

Concerning likely criticisms he receives for marrying three wives, the self-acclaimed prophet retorts, “When people tell me that a bishop should have just one wife, I tell them I’m neither a bishop nor a pastor, but I’m a prophet.

“I tell my critics to show me a place in the Bible that says a prophet must be a husband to one wife.

“I am a prophet and I have a large heart. I know how to handle these women.”
