Winners Chapel Pastor Jailed For Stealing GHC596,000 Belonging To Church Members

Pastor Afolabi Samuel, a minister of the Living Faith Church also called Winners Chapel International, has been given a 3-year prison term for burglary.

Reports say that Pastor Afolabi Samuel took more than $90,000, tantamount to Ghc596,000 belonging to believers of the congregation.

Likewise, the bookkeeper and financier was additionally put under the watchful eye of a court-managed

by Justice Mojisola Dada on two tallies of connivance and taking.

Clearly, Pastor Samuel schemed with one Blessing Kolawole to redirect the cash for their own utilization which is against sections 278, 285 and 490 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State No. 11, 2011.

In the interim, Defense counsel, Rotimi Ogunwuyi, begged the court to help its sentence in light of the fact that the denounced who at first argued not blameworthy had at long last confessed.

Besides, the guard counsel argued that the minister was the sole supplier for his children and his mature guardians.

Justice Dada conceded the wrongdoer the choice of a fine of GHC15,000 and requested him to discount the sum taken from the congregation.
