Nemesis has caught up with a youth leader of the Living Faith Church in Okene, Kogi State, who professed to be a born-again Christian, but in reality was the leader of a 10-man robbery gang. The suspect (name withheld), who was described as ‘very popular’ in the area, allegedly led his gang to break into the office of the pastor of the church in the night and carted away over N315,000 belonging to the church.

Ironically, he was one of the early callers to the church the next morning, and joined in raining curses on the perpetrators of the crime. Parading the suspects yesterday, at the police headquarters in Lokoja, the state Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Musa Katsina, described the arrested suspects as a sledgehammer robbery gang. He said that the youth leader, “who led the robbery operation was seen the following morning, raining curses on the robbers and even invoking Holy Ghost fire on them, and now, the Holy Ghost fire has caught up with him.”

He said that the gang made up of bricklayers and block moulders specialize in breaking into shops and private residences, carting away goods and money. The Commissioner stated that the suspects were armed with guns and other dangerous weapons during their operations He said that they normally disguise as casual labourers going around residences and shops in search of potential victims. The police boss said the mother of the gang leader is a chorister in the same church. Answering reporters’ questions, the arrested youth leader confessed that he played the born-again youth leader in the day, and armed robber at night.

He confessed that he has led 27 robberies within Okene and Lokoja as well as Adavi local government areas. The Assistant Pastor of the church, Pastor Aloysius Momoh, who expressed surprise at the youth leader’s involvement in the crime, said that the church went into seven-day prayer and fasting shortly after the church was robbed, and God warned those behind the dastardly act to repent between May and December, last year, or be disgraced One of the victims, Paul Ikunagus, said over N2 million cash was stolen from his shop while one of them said he lost N5.8 million to the robbers who invaded his shop last December.

All the victims commended the police in the state under the leadership of Musa Katsina for bringing the elusive gang members to book. Items recovered from the suspects included one locally made gun, a jerk knife, two big hammers, handsets and clothes.

  1. His sin has found him out, he refused to repent of his atrocity, using his position in the church to cover his multitude of sins. Who do people think God is ? A fool ? Definitely NO. Of all the places he chose to rob in God’s Sanctuary. *this is a case of talking about when one’s cup of sin is filled to the brim*. God will still accept him if he could repent genuinely and dedicate his life to Christ, the all merciful Father.

  2. Hmmmmm!!!!!.that is his earthly judgement.but he listens to preaching weekly,how much more to those who dont go to church?that is why the church shoul be conscious of those they make leaders.u dont give positions to those who dress costly and behaves wealthy,gentility,dignity and contentment should be a criteria for leadership appointment.

  3. Well, the youth leader so to say…. did not bring shame to Winners family but he brought shame to his family. talking about winners chapel or the church of christ that is the only place such people can be saved for crying out loud…..but brother youth leader, that is not the way to get your double portion and nxt levels miracle ooooh!

  4. Why would the church have that kind of amount in their possesive and leave it in the church premises. Anyway our God is not a sleeping one He is truely living Faith(God) this are the same people that allow other religions to have too many insult on us. Shame on u guys

  5. Yes, they said they were caught, i want to ask, were they carrying all these weapon? if yes they should go and check their individual compound and if no they should also investigate the issue, mind you stilling is an offence howmuchmore in the house of God

  6. winner church has no shme. the family of the robber host the shame on them, morerover the pastor warn them. may God forgive those boys

  7. @Dave-Keeping shut is the best u shld av done!he alone is carrying d shame not all Winnerz.The God of the winners is not a ROBBER dt was y he was exposed!

  8. TRULY TRULY I SAID TO ALL OF YOU, THIS THING CAN ONLY HAPPEN IN A CHURCH LIKE WINNERS CHAPEL
    AFTER ALL IS IT NOT A PLACE FOR DANCE, LOVE MAKING AND THE HEAD QUARTERS OF SEXY GIRLS AND BOYS LOOKING FOR PLEASURE. UNBELIEVABLE ” A YOUTH LEADER” A BEG POLICE SHOULD INTERROGATE THE MEMBERS TOO… THEY FIT BE BOKO HARAM MEMBERS.
    LORD JESUS I AM SO SO SORRY FOR WHAT HAPPEN FORGIVE THE YOUTH LEADER, ITS MEMBERS AND PASTORS OF THE CHURCH AS WELL. HOWEVER, I SAID IT BEFORE THAT WINNERS IS NOT A CHURCH RATHER A RELIGIOUS SECT OR ORDINARY STRUCTURE FOR FUN. SHAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

  9. Guys,
    its too early to complain but again the court is the only organ to prove his guilty. i wonder people trying to judge even before the court say so. I,m a Tanzanian a member of the living faith church, i want to tell the public that my sin is not a sin of my church incase i fall in to it. So, even when is found guilty to that said to be a leader of youth of our church in Nigeria; the church should not be blamed.
    I LOVE THE CHURCH AS I LOVE MY DAD BISHOP DAVID OYEDEPO.
    I ASK MY FALLOW YOUTH IN OUR CHURCH IN NIGERIA, NEVER TO GIVE UP DEVIL IS AROUND BUT WE ARE SURE OF THE VICTORY AS HE FAILED IN THE CROSS 2000 YEARS AGO.

  10. Whatever d livin faith church are i think i dont hv d power 2 judge it, though im nt a member but i so much believe in d founder,its ideology,vision & mission, WINNERS rather than being defencive & attackin a contributor y dont u coment on d issue at stake, dis shows dat pple hv derail from d teaching of OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, and are more intrested in religionism & churchism, GOD hv mercy on all of us.

  11. Agents of the devil,shame on you @Dave nd co,,God has open our eye to real truth by his servant Bishop David Oyedepo.now we’ve known d truth no more going back.God bless the winners family world wide

  12. Winners Chapel, & dey come donate big money den d church wld clap 4 dem, giv dem big positions… Na only God know pple Wey dey worship am!

  13. Why is it that this days is in the church that bad things happen.pls you guys should have a rethink.Your leathers knows the truth but they can’t tell you.

  14. Let he that is free of any sin be the first to cast the stone. Matthew 7:1-5. We all have our hidden sins and it is only a dead conscience that denies that fact. We seem righteous on the outside because we have not been caught. Our denomination is the best because it has not gotten into the bad light of the media. Every church has bad eggs, wolves in sheep clothings. Even among the disciples of our Lord and Christ there was a judas. One who stole church money and indeed a traitor. That does not make Jesus a bad teacher and leader. He did all He could to keep them straight but still he had among them still the sons of thunder (James and John), the doubtful (thomas), the fearful one who denied him(peter) etc. Those of us casting stones beware. Only pray that you do not fall into the snare of sin and pray for those that have fallen that they may repent. Jesus is coming soon and He alone is the righteous Judge. Do not put yourselves in His shoes because they are too big for you to wear. GOD BLESS YOU

  15. Stealing in the household of God? I think you you have a case to answer from God.
    Deliverance is all that you need right NOW. May God forgive you!

  16. @Dave&co, God have mercy on u guyz that hates Winners Chapel so much. Did they say ALL the Winners members were caught? The bible says “any soul that sin shall die” including @Dave’s secret SINS that no one can see. U don’t DARE God cuz He’s a merciful God AND also a CONSUMING FIRE.

  17. Some piple jst wanna tlk dats y dey end up saying rubbish if u re jealous of our church winners chapel plz feel free to hang urself d guy choose to steal did our papa oyedepo. Advice him to steal plz dnt tlk abt our church like dat God forgive d guy nd those dat dnt like our church God forgive u too.

  18. GOD SEES T
    HE CLOTHED AS NAKED……..BEWARE…….THIS END TIME THINGS WIL HAPEN THAT EVEN THE ELECT CAN GO ASTRAY…….GOD HAS THE FINAL SAY….LET HIM CONFESS JESUS AS HIS LORD AND SAVIOR AND MAKE SURE HE RENEWS HIS MIND WITH THAT STINKIN THINKIN HE HAS….

  19. Any power,assigned against the youths in this present generation,you shall not prosper,DIE,in the name of Jesus.
    you dark spirits,causing the youths to follow wrong direction,LOOSE YOUR POWER,IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
    FIRE OF REVIVAL,COME UPON OUR YOUTHS,IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
    GOD BLESS YOU

  20. Christ came for us sinner,der is no need to point fingers @ eachoda,GOd of winner God of dat…please He is d same today tomorrow…believe in wat ur bible says! wat eva one sow dat he shall reap…be u pastor be u church goer..its God who knows does dat serive Him.its sad dat we christian from different churches always ar @ eachoda throat due church names or the name the overseer please God is God and will always be God. So look to Him and service dats all He requires of u.

  21. l want to thank God for all things.why bcos, what has happened is an eye opener to the churches and the leaders.l think it is high time for the leaders to check d kind of message they preach to their members by stop preaching much of prosperity messages and begin to preach to people d message of enternity that leads to change of heart,forgiveness,fear of God and Salvation through Jesus Christ.opening their eyes to devinity and enternity not vanity.The Bible says,seek yee first the Kingdom of God and it’s righteousness and every other things shall be added unto you.let our leaders learn how to do Soul raising instead of fund raising by leading them Christ through alter call.we should know that it is not all that come to Church that have been born again. l remember some years ago when night club was like my personal house until one Saturday night l was drunk and druged.as an akpobi man you don’t preach or talk us any how.getting the Sunday morning one man in our yard told me that Jesus Loves me and other things,this man provided clothes for me to go with him to Church that morning,that was how l followed him to one Pentecostal Church that l hated and never wanted go to.But when l got there,l was surprise the way l was welcomed,Loved and even the message that was preached by Man of God put fear of God in me.l was heart broken that l rushed out when alter call was made to surrender and receive Jesus into my Life.since then till now His Grace has been with me and more Souls have been saved.l found out that the best thing in Life is to have Jesus Christ.So let’s do the same and God will bless us to the glory and honor of his name Amem.

  22. D devil himself held a big position in heaven b4 he rebeled God trow him away or banished hm will i say, so 4him 2b a youthleader is ok, moreover no 1 can jugde som1 by jst seeing him n no1 knows tmoro d devil decieved him and used him, and that has nothing 2do with Living Faith church, because the pastor cnt force any1 to repent genuinely, so pls stop insulting LFC or Daddy G.O if not ur just heaters of the ministry period
