Following the dismissal of seniors officials of Living Faith Church also known as Winners Chapel by the founder and General Overseer of the church, Bishop David Oyedepo over looting of the church’s treasury, some Nigerians have reacted and expressed their views on the issue.
While addressing church members at an empowerment summit organised for the church’s ordained workers, Bishop Oyedepo revealed that one of the affected senior officials refused to confess until last minute but Bishop Oyedepo did not reveal the number of officials dismissed.
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.”
Some Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react on the dismissal of senior officials. While some Nigerians condemn the senior officials of looting the treasury, some Nigerians slam Bishop Oyedepo for not being like Jesus Christ.
