Bishop David Oyedepo on Saturday raged at some highly placed officials of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, a.k.a. Winners Chapel, who stole millions of Naira from the church’s treasury.

The Nation reports that the cleric revealed how some very high up officials, mainly accountants, had looted the church’s treasury. The Bishop could not hide his disappointment that professionals trusted by the church to prevent fraud, turned themselves into a network of fraudsters.

Expressing his disappointment in the errant church officials, who have since been relieved of their positions in the church, he said: “Can you imagine accountants perpetrating fraud in the house of God?

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. I have to tell everyone present here because I know the dismissed officials will come to you for employment.

Don’t employ them and don’t sympathise with them. 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.”



  1. God’s judgment will begin in the Church. Those charged with the positions Of authorities in the house of God are the ones failing themselves and creating bad images and names for their friends and families. What a shame.

  2. Oh look at thief calling someone thief, the church money is it not their money? Wicked man where did u get money in buying your private jets and building university that even the least members in your church couldn’t attend or send their children to. Is not from the same treasury? You look for a way to collect money from your church members,these members that steal from the treasury is their money not part of it? I can’t believe the boldness that you have to come open in the air to say all these and even encourage people not to employ them. These show how wicked and miserable you are, I pity those gullible members of yours bcus to me you are a disgrace to christaindom.
    It is only a Stupid, greedy, selfish, and foolish Man like you will come out to say all these rubbish in air. Repent Sir.

  3. It is very obvious that these man is not even from God, how much did the official steal that will warrant him to say all these about them? Is the money more than 1 of his private jet?

    I still couldn’t believe that someone stole from the church treasury is it your money alone? It belongs to the church and the officials are part of the church. How did he get money to buy his three private jets?, building university, building big mansions and even buying exotic Cars for him and his families is it not from the church treasury? So why condemning someone who took little compare to his? Indeed he is really serving god of mammon and not the Lord God almighty. Am not in the support of those that stole o but him shouldn’t be the one castigating them, him too Na thief. Using the Old Testament law of tithe, firstfruit offerings, vows, seed etc to extract money from these members that is stealing also. am such if he didn’t ask them to pay all their January salary as first fruit offering these officials won’t have the mind to steal the money so let’s be wise don’t allow man deceive you for their own selfish gain shalom.
