Founder and General Overseer of the Living Faith Church, a.k.a Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo has dismissed some top officials for allegedly stealing from the church’s treasury.
Oyedepo, who did not disclose the number of affected officials, announced the dismissal while speaking during an empowerment summit organised for the church’s ordained workers on Saturday, January 11, 2020.
The man of God urged his church members not to sympathise or employ the dismissed officials, saying if they do, they are partakers of the evil act.
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.”
