A press statement from people believed to be former church executives has alleged that the founder of Divinity Empire Campus Ministry (DECAM), Apostle Vinny Max Bani (AVBM), bullied members into sexual misconduct, deception and stealing from church coffers.
The communique was issued after AVBM resigned willingly from his position as founder and head, which dissolved the church.
“He announced the change in leadership structure for DECAM, placing the Archdeacon as head of DECAM executives, a committee which consisted of 4 pastors in the ministry along with the Archdeacon. He also ordered the removal of every shred of information on the internet linking him to his ministry as an apostle, an identity which served to legitimize his 13 years of church administration. He was to be regarded as a private businessman and Emperor who had nothing to do with ministry.”
In the statement which has made it social media, it also alleged that the Pastor sexually exploited some of the women in the church by compelling them to perform “oral sex, hand jobs, and sensual massages to various penetrative sex activities including threesomes and orgies involving several women at once.
“While investigations were ongoing, several female members of the congregation came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct of Mr Bani. Many claimed to have been propositioned to provide nude photos in exchange for some favours or recognition in the church.“
