The Founder and General Overseer of the Living Faith Church, a.k.a Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has come under attack over dismissal of church accountants and some church officials accused of stealing millions.
Oyedepo while speaking at the Church’s empowerment summit organised for ordained workers on Saturday said professionals trusted by the church to prevent fraud turned themselves into a ‘network of fraudsters.

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.”

The cleric, however, advised members against employing those who had looted the church’s treasury.

His decision has since stirred reaction from Nigerians on social media.

Some Nigerians criticized Oyedepo’s decision, adding that judgement is for God, and that the church officials caught stealing should not have been dismissed.

According to them, it is God’s money. However, others supported his actions.

Here are some reactions from Nigerians on Twitter:
