Fraud and Rot Exposed At Bishop Oyedepo’s Winners Chapel As Millions Go MissingBy George Arbuthnott. Plenty to smile about; Preacher David Oyedepo of the Winners Chapel movement aboard one of his private jets. He also owns a Rolls Royce Phantom. The assault case was struck out but is being appealed. This claims that congregants who make regular donations and pay tithes — a ten per cent levy on their income — will be rewarded financially by God. Followers are urged to target vulnerable people such as the lonely, the sick, the homeless and the suicidal as potential candidates for conversion. Caught on camera: Video of Mr Oyedepo striking a young 'witch' across the face in front of a congregation. Packed buses deliver singing worshippers from South-East London, Essex and Kent to the huge auditorium. The reporter saw a payment slip being given to every person entering the church encouraging them to donate money by cheque or cash or to fill in a form with their debit card details. Congregants were told to fill in their slips and hold them above their heads while the donations were blessed. One of the fleet: A jet belonging to Mr Oyedepo - he has at least two that he bought with his huge fortune. The service was interspersed with testimonies. Someone is sick and already wishing he or she were dead, that is a fruit ripe to harvest. Someone is confounded and considering suicide as an option, that is another fruit that is ripe to harvest. The reporter was taken, with 20 other new recruits, to a room where preachers gave sermons claiming acceptance of the Lord would prevent them ever being ill or suffering misfortune. The case was struck out — a decision which is now reported to have been appealed. Mr Oyedepo has received fierce criticism in Africa. Marriage: Seen here with his wife Faith, Mr Oyedepo has a son who runs services at the chapel's London headquarters. It is also claimed he and his wife, Faith, travel in expensive Jeeps flanked by convoys of siren-blaring vehicles. He is the senior pastor of Faith Tabernacle, a 50,seat auditorium in Lagos reputed to be the largest church in the world, and runs a publishing company that distributes books carrying his message across the world. The latest addition is a commercial airline named Dominion Airlines. It is important to clarify that this does not constitute an investigation at this stage.

Winners Chapel got N35m from NIMASA slush fund – EFCC’s witness
This is just a list of ridiculous expenditures showing the cult is wealthy, and not the reason why it's wealthy. That's why I hate anything in list form, it's usually clickbait. CrazeMan69 : May the devil give you BJ Opening ya dirty mouth to call dangote. Did dangote exploit people or make money after delivering economic services? May Jesus give you wisdom. Yuceeluv : When you're done giving yourself headache don't forget drugs. If you can't spell a four letter word properly then you ain't one worthy of an argument. HigherEd : In this new series voiceofthechurch profiles the wealth of Nigerian christian ministries. The Nigerian Catholic church, RCCG, Christ embassy and Winners chapel hold tremendous amount of wealth which is not unusual considering their extensive international reach. One of the major strengths of the Nigerian indigenous churches was their ability to proliferate successfully in foreign nations, this particularly ensured that they were immune to Nigerian economic woes as they continue to receive millions of USD and other currencies from their foreign stations. The internationalisation of these churches has ensured that Nigerian churches continued to boom in the worst of recession in any country it occupies. Today we start by profiling one of the most successful Christian ministries founded four decades ago by Bishop Oyedepo. Considering Ogun state makes about 75 billion a year on Igr then it is debatable that Winners is wealthier than Ogun state. CAVEAT: It is unclear whether the total expenditure includes or excludes expenditures of subset organizations of the church e. It is unclear whether this figure represents the totality of headquarter's expenditure or merely a summation of individual branch expenditure. This is more than a cummulative of Ekiti's Igr for the next 10 years. The Church's hangar reportedly can conveniently hold six private jets. However the church maintains one jet for now. The Christian 'god' must be very tolerant of avarice, corruption, and abuse of his 'sheep' to continue to allow these pastorpreneurs get away with their atrocities.

Winners’ Chapel pastor steals over N37 Million
A major Nigerian pentecostal preacher has vowed to continue holding Sunday service for thousands of his followers, spurning worldwide medical advisory against physical contact at a time of blazing coronavirus. David Oyedepo brushed aside the potential hazards of his decision to defy government restrictions on social gatherings across Nigeria, saying some members would rather look up to Sunday service as the only viable means of treatment against COVID, a strain of coronavirus that has killed more than 15, people and left tens of thousands bedridden across the world. The preacher held two services within hours apart even though the government had placed an indefinite moratorium on religious gathering amidst scramble to contain the spread of the virus. Winners Chapel boasts of some of the largest congregations in Nigeria. The church also has hundreds of other branches in Nigeria and other countries. Although the headquarters, officially dubbed Canaan Land by the church, had long assumed a community of its own, some of its administrative functions are still subject to state and federal laws in Nigeria. Yet, the church was left out when law enforcement authorities besieged worship centres across Lagos and Ogun to enforce social distancing measures on Sunday. Several churches were closed in downtown Lagos and some communities in Ogun for apparent violation of a widely publicised ban on gatherings of more than 50 persons. The number has been reviewed downward to only 20 in Lagos. Winners Chapel appeared to be the only church in its category that held service against public health directive on Sunday. A cascade of Sunday service cancelations began amongst other mega and minor pentecostal churches across the country following meetings with state governments throughout the week. Some churches, like the Commonwealth Zion Assembly and Methodist Church Nigeria, that initially asked members to show up for Sunday service later decided against it at the eleventh-hour, urging their members to obey public safety directives instead. Most of the churches used the Internet and other forms of mass media to pass message to their members at home on Sunday. Yet, the preacher said he would continue to hold physical Sunday service for potentially thousands of members in continuous violation of existing public order. Although the legality of the shelter-in-place directive of governors has been a subject of debate on social media, the police have said they would enforce it because it has the support of the majority. At various times, he has covered the Presidency, National Assembly and Defence. Now available on. All rights reserved. Related News. Coronavirus Quiz:. Samuel Ogundipe. T witter : SamuelOgundipe.
