The BBC reports that Kingdom Blue, Kings & Queens Funeral Services and Black Phoenix all claim to have been manipulated by the "scheme" and are now seeking legal action for the damage caused to their reputation.
A group of funeral directors in South Africa have threatened to sue the preacher for a spectacle he put on in which he appears to convince churchgoers that he rose a man from death. In the video circulating on social media, Mr Lukau is seen touching the deceased man in a coffin who is dressed in all white and after a few utterances the dead man sits up with his mouth wide open while church members jump in jubilation. According to this narrative, he was preaching when he was informed that a man in a coffin had been brought to church by his family. "We will also be summoning the funeral parlour", Mkhwanazi-Xaluva said.
Prince Mafu, speaking on behalf of the funeral directors said: "It is with regret that the outcome of such a plot has adversely affected our reputation as service providers".
Congolese born Pastor Lukau of Alleluia Ministries performs a resurrection miracle, raising a man from the dead in front of a crowd of people at his Sandton church, north of Johannesburg.

Karnataka Director General of Police MN Reddi said, "In all, 300 cars burnt in the fire incident ". Visitors to an air show in southern India got an unwelcome surprise Saturday morning.
According to the church, Pastor Lukau had only "completed a miracle that God had already started", reported Sowetan Live. The statement says by the time the vehicle entered its premises, there was already movement inside the coffin.
A South African pastor has unwittingly sparked a new social media trend after apparently bringing a man back from the dead in a now viral video. He said he only heard about the alleged resurrection miracle on news and social media.
The church has also released an official statement on the issue, saying that at no point did Lukau claim to have resurrected the man.
