Nigerian Pastor Fined N1 million For Stealing N4.5m And $90,000 From The Church....

Oh Dear, why!!

A Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja has sentenced Afolabi Samuel, a pastor of the Living Faith Church, aka Winners’ Chapel, to three years in prison, for stealing $90,000 and N4.5m which belongs to the registered trustees of the church.

Samuel who is the church treasurer was arraigned on two counts of conspiracy and stealing before Justice Mojisola Dada, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The pastor and one Blessing Kolawole, an employee of the Covenant University, who is currently at large, allegedly conspired to steal the money and used it for personal purposes.

The EFCC said Samuel connived with Kolawole and others, to take advantage of their position to commit the crime.

Justice Dada found Samuel guilty of the charges.

Counsel for the convict, Rotimi Ogunwuyi, admitted his client’s action did not only embarrass him but also his family and pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy.

The counsel’s allocutus made the judge grant Samuel an option of fine of N1m and ordered him to refund the sum of $90,000 and N2,358,000 to the church.

  1. Hmmmmmmm!!!!

  2. There is absolutely no justification for theft BUT ehhn all these money the church is having on a regular what exactly is it visibly used for??
    Ohh..For church “project” LMAOOO

  3. Fair justice in my opinion.
    I pray he pays back and be forgiven

    1. The church was lenient in asking him to pay back some money as fine or face jail.
      It must have been stolen from canaanland. That's the only branch with such huge amount of money I'm certain.

  4. Very few pastors in Nigeria have integrity.

    It is a pity many lose guard when they see monies for God's kingdom

  5. People like this make world people speak ill about pastors

  6. What's his full name and picture? They're still protecting him.
    And parading Yahoo boys.

    1. Are you a yahoo boy???
      Better repent before you will be paradedπŸ˜πŸ™„πŸ˜πŸ™„πŸ˜πŸ™„

  7. One million???, He still get change nawπŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜†

    1. As fine to court.
      Then refund 2.4m to the church and the 90k$ he stole.

  8. What about the pastors that are sexual predators? Na only thieves una dey catch??? What about sexual exploitation and blackmail by some of your pastors? No one is addressing that? God is watching all of you?
    They are willing to forgive sexual sins but not money thieving sins?
    All the damaged women from those encounters who will counsel them? No one will even listen unless it is thrown on social media abi?
    God is watching all of you!

  9. The Bible says "touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm"

    Also they suppose to forgive him or are they not the ones teaching about forgiveness.
