Presiding Bishop of the Winners Chapel, Dr. David Oyedepo, has sacked some top officials of his church mainly Accountants who he alleged to have looted the church’s treasury.
The angry cleric made the disclosure at the empowerment summit organised for ordained workers of the church on Saturday, with the story going viral since then.
“Can you imagine accountants perpetrating fraud in the house of God?”, the angry bishop said.
“We had no choice but to dismiss them. You can imagine top church officials engaging in doubling figures and other dubious practices.
“Even 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,” he lamented.
He warned his church members not to employ the dismissed officials.
He said: “Don’t employ them and don’t sympathise with them. Whoever sympathises with the wicked is wicked himself.”
He added: “Don’t sympathise with any perpetrator of fraud, otherwise you are a partaker of the evil act.”
He however did not mention the actual amount of money allegedly stolen by the said officials.
