Some few hours ago, there were reporters suggesting that Bishop David Oyedepo has dismissed his senior church officials for looting the church’s treasury.
However, Nigerians have reacted this report and as usual, they did so in the funniest way possible.
Bishop David Oyedepo did not make public the number of officials dismissed while speaking at an empowerment summit organised for the church’s ordained workers, however, he noted that one of the affected senior officials refused to confess until the last minute.
“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,” Bishop Oyedepo said.
Some Nigerians in their reaction lashed out at Bishop Oyedepo for not seeing the said act in a vision before it was uncovered and also for not forgiving the officials 70 times 70, just like the Bible said. Others, however, defended him.
