Winners Chapel Pastors Fight Over N16.5m Profit From Land Sale
Three Pastors of the Living Faith Church, aka Winners Chapel at Isheri Olofin area of Lagos State are at loggerheads over the sharing of N16.5m realized from the purchase of a parcel of land and property by the church.
The trio, who have taken the battle to a Lagos court, are Deacon Dolire Oluwaniyi, an estate agent, versus two other Pastors, Edwin Iky and Peter O. Odama.
The Pastors acted on behalf of the church over the purchase of the property, Vanguard reports.
In the suit before Magistrate’s court sitting in Ogba, with suit number, MIK/4174/16, Deacon Oluwaniyi stated that the two pastors cheated him after they collected N140m from their General Overseer, Bishop David Oyedapo and paid N130m to the owner of the property.
He added that as the agent who linked the church to the owner of the property, he was entitled to N6.5 million commission which was also paid by the church but was shared between the two pastors and he was not given a dime.
Following the alleged scam, the claimant dragged the church to the court seeking an order that he should be paid his commission as a registered agent with his company’s name, Bedek properties that facilitated the transaction.
