Prophet Amata

A Lusaka Magistrate Court has acquitted Isaac Amata, the Nigerian Prophet who was facing two counts of trafficking and importation of drugs called Ephedrine.

Amata is the Prophet who had prophesied President Edgar Lungu’s victory in the 2016 elections. He is said to have started enjoying good relation with the Lungu regime after his prophesy and started coming to Zambia.

During one of his visits to Zambia, he was arrested at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport for allegedly trafficking in Ephedrine.

Passing a verdict on Monday, today, April 30, 2018 the Magistrate acquitted him of both accounts saying the State failed to prove the charges.

Commenting on the verdict, Prophet Amata said he was happy that justice had prevailed. He said Zambia was a good country with an independent judicial system.

Prophet Amata said his lawyers and people in Zambia will decide on whether to sue the Zambian government for defaming him or he will forgive them.

Among the notables who turned up to give Amata support was Edgar Ngoma, a friend to the powers that be.
