Oyedepo Dismisses Top Officials For Stealing From Church Treasury

Bishop Oyedepo, the founder of Living Faith Bible Church AKA Winners' Chapel

Some Nigerians have reacted to the decision of the founder and presiding Bishop of Faith Tabernacle, aka Winners Chapel, David Oyedepo to dismiss some church officials for allegedly stealing from the church’s treasury.

Oyedepo had made the announcement of the dismissal on Saturday, January 11, 2020, while speaking during an empowerment summit organised for the church’s ordained workers.

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?


This statement has stirred mixed reaction from many Nigerians on Twitter, either supporting his decision or bashing him.

Here are some tweets below:

Bishop Oyedepo has however warned the church members not to sympathize with dismissed officials, saying if they do, they are partakers of the evil act.
