David Oyedepo, the presiding bishop of the Winner’s Chapel, has sacked some church workers for allegedly looting the church’s treasury to the tune of several millions of naira.

Oyedepo disclosed the news on Saturday during an empowerment summit organized for the church’s ordained workers.

The 65-year-old cleric sacked the church members in the presence of Winner’s pastors, zonal ministers, deacons, ushers and other stakeholders who were present at the event.

Oyedepo, while expressing his displeasure over the act, warned members to desist from the evil act.

He said some high up officials, including accountants, turned themselves into a network of fraudsters.

“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 sympathize. Whoever sympathizes with the wicked is wicked himself. Don’t sympathize with any perpetrator of fraud, otherwise, you are a partaker of the evil act,” he said.
