EFCC Declares Christ Embassy’s Pastor Bribena, Wife Wanted For N2 Billion Fraud

The Chief Executive Officer of Baraza Multipurpose Cooperative, a Bayelsa-based Ponzi scheme, Pastor (Dr) Miebi Bribena (full name: Onyimiebi Bribena) and his wife, Beatrice Bribena have been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC for allegedly defrauding Nigerians over N2 billion.

Bribena, who is a Pastor at Christ Embassy Kumasi 1, Ghana, fled Nigeria last year after failing to pay investors their return on investment (ROI), leading to protests in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.

Bribena had alleged that some staff of the cooperative compromised its systems by defrauding the organization of over N300 million.

He added that the organisation was carrying out a forensic audit to enable it to pay the backlog of unpaid surpluses to the investors and members, a promise that was never fulfilled.

The declaration of Pastor Bribena and wife wanted was contained in a statement contained in a flyer advert signed by Wilson Uwujaren, Head, Media & Publicity of EFCC.

It reads:

“Bribena and Beatrice are both natives of Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.

“Their last known address is No 163 Mbiama Yenagoa Road, Biogbolo, Bayelsa State.

“Anybody with useful information as to their whereabouts should please contact the Commission in its Benin, Kaduna, Ibadan, Sokoto, Gombe, Maiduguri, Makurdi, Ilorin, Enugu, Kano, Lagos, Gombe, Port Harcourt, and Abuja offices or through these numbers 09-9044751-3, 0B093322644, 08183322644, 070-26350721-3, 070-6350724-5; Its e-mail address: or the nearest Police Station and other security agencies.”
