Nigerians on twitter as usual has reacted to report of Founder and General Overseer of the Living Faith Church a.k.a Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo as he dismisses his senior church officials for looting the church’s treasury.
He did not disclose the number of officials dismissed while speaking at an empowerment summit organised for the church’s workers, he however disclosed that one of the affected senior worker kept lying until the die minute.
Bishop Oyedepo 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.”
However reacting to the report, some Nigerians on twitter called out Bishop Oyedepo for not seeing the said act in a vision before it was uncovered and also for not forgiving the officials 70 times 70, just like Jesus said in the Bible. Others however defended him.
