A man who has dominated social media platforms over the past two days after allegedly being resurrected by controversial South African pastor Alpha Lukau is now in trouble with his neighbors.
This is according to a report by the South African national broadcaster South African Broadcasting Corporation.
The man who has been identified as Zimbabwean national Elliot Lazarus lives with his girlfriend in Polokwane in the Limpopo region of South African.
According to the SABC, neighbors of the man who was living with his girlfriend are anxiously waiting for him to return so that he could explain what happened on Sunday when he was allegedly resurrected after ‘passing away’ on Friday.
Visibly agitated neighbors told SABC that the couple left their house on Wednesday last week and only resurfaced in the video where Apostle Lukau is seen praying for the man before his jerks off from the coffin where he was sleeping.
In the video that has now gone viral, Apostle Lukau of the Alleluia International Ministries is seen questioning people who introduced themselves as the brother, landlord, mother in law and girlfriend and are wailing next to the coffin.
The purported landlord told the pastor that the man had been turned away from the hospital because he did not have legal documentation before he passed away.
However, the station has established the lady who introduced herself as the landlord is not the real landlord.
Three funeral service providers who were contracted to play a role in the ‘funeral’ of the deceased have launched complains with an intention to sue Alleluia International Ministries over maliciously damaging their reputation.
According to a lawyer representing the funeral service providers, Prince Mafu who spoke to South African paper Sowetan live, people linked to the church approached the parlors individually, buying a coffin from one, stickers from another and hiring a hearse from another one.
The church has however maintained that the man who was being transported to Zimbabwe for burial when his family members made a stopover at the church was already alive when he arrived at the church and the Apostle only “ completed what God had started”
It is not yet clear if the resurrected man is still in South Africa or he has returned to his native Zimbabwe home.
