The founder and Senior Pastor of the Living Faith Ministry, also known as Winner’s Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has announced the sack of some officials for allegedly stealing from the church’s treasury.
According to TheCable, Oyedepo disclosed this on Saturday during an empowerment summit organised for the church’s ordained workers.
Bishop Oyedepo, a fierce critic of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, did not disclose the number of officials affected.
He said, “We had no choice but to dismiss them. You can imagine top church officials engaging in doubling figures and other dubious practices. After we dismissed them, we discovered more fraud.
“Those who should discover the fraud were the ones involved in it. One of them refused to confess until the last minute. Can you imagine accountants perpetrating fraud in the house of God?
“Don’t employ them, don’t sympathise. Whoever sympathises with the wicked is wicked himself. Don’t sympathise with any perpetrator of fraud, otherwise, you are a partaker of the evil act.”
