Veronica: The Female Cop at the center of a testimony saga in Nigerian Church



On Sunday, April 14, a video clip of a leader pentecostal church in Nigeria, Pastor Paul Enenche, rebuking a lady, Veronica Anyim, who was testifying in the church went viral.

The Dunamis International Gospel Church‘s Senior Pastor berated Veronica Nnenna Anyim for claiming that she just bagged a Bachelor of Science Degree (BSc.) in Law, instead of Legum Baccalaureus (LL.B) which is peculiar to Law.

The church has since released a statement signed by the Personal Assistant/ Secretary to the Senior Pastor, Sylvester Edoh.

Edoh claimed that the Senior Pastor never intended to embarrass the lady, rather was a slip.

The statement entitled “An official statement on Ms Anyim Veronica Nnenna’s testimony” reads:

“A scenario was created on Sunday the 14th April. 2024 at the Glory Dome, the Global Headquarters of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, when Ms Anyim Veronica Nnenna came out to testify of how God helped her graduate from the University, thus making her the first person to attain that feat in her family.

“These were the immediate triggers for the said scenario: First, listening to the testifier’s expressions as it borders on basic spoken English, conveys the impression that the minimum standard expectation of a graduate, especially a graduate of Law was not met.

“Second, stating that she studied Law for 10 years begged the question of what her degree actually was.

“Third, she was unable to state exactly what the correct degree was for Law which is LLB, rather she said it was a BSc in Law which is largely unknown as a Law degree in Nigeria and possibly globally.

“These prompted the Senior Pastor. Dr. Paul Enenche to stop the testimony immediately as a product of a “lie.”

“However, relief came when it was later confirmed that she actually graduated from a university.

“It must be pointed out clearly here that embarrassing the testifier publicly with the attendant media frenzy was never intended; whatever happened was under the spur of the moment.

“The action of the Senior Pastor was rather based on his and the church’s aversion to seeming mediocrity and any appearance of untruth.

“While we remain resolute in our passion for excellence, intolerance of mediocrity and falsehood, we wish to reiterate the fact that no harm or hurt was ever intended by the Senior Pastor against Ms. Anyim Veronica.

“The Senior Pastor feels deeply concerned and had already reached out to her.

“As a Commission, we regret every inconvenience, hurt and embarrassment this unfortunate scenario has caused to Ms Anyim Veronica Nnenna.

“We remain committed to her physical welfare as well as her spiritual growth.

“God bless us all.” (A copy of the statement is attached below)

She went ahead to meet the Pastor and wife, Pastor Becky, in a reconciliatory meeting.
