According to reports, the police revealed that the pastor and his partner had scammed several people to buy the tickets for $500 each.
Watts reportedly told those seeking salvation that the banknotes were made of solid gold, and each banknote reserved a place in heaven for the buyer.
It was added that the tickets are meant to bring people to heaven without facing judgments from God. Police further revealed that members of Pastor Watts' church have called for the release of the man of God.
"I don't care what people or the police say about me, i am being persecuted for doing the work of God."
Pastor Tito Watts told thousands of people that it was Jesus who appeared to him and then gave him tickets for particularly sinful people so that they too could enter Heaven.
Thousands of people are protesting the pastor's arrest and called on the police to release him immediately because they are using their own money to buy salvation.
"Jesus Christ appeared to me and gave me pure gold tickets so that i could sell to those who want salvation," the pastor said.
Do you think the pastor is a true man of God? your opinion is very important to us
