A Lagos based pastor of the City Of Dominion Deliverance Church, pastor Ken Egbule, has been given the marching order by the church. The General Overseer Pastor Mrs Mary-Sherry Osakwe has made this known to the Press.
She said in a statement released "he was sacked and had his dismissal was announced to the entire congregation during last Sunday service". The pastor was dismissed for sleeping with female members of the church. Adding to this, the pastor is alleged to have taken a fee from church members who wanted to receive special prayers.
The church said that some women spoke of their encounter with pastor Egbule and how he had taken money from them charging fees for special prayers such as for women seeking divine help for bearing children. The church did not see anyother way other than reliving him of his duties adding that "keeping such character in the church will not be in the interest of the members and the entire church". The church also referred the case to the police accusing the former pastor for sexually assaulting female members of the congregation.
