Bishop Oyedepo's Slapping Case Goes To Appeal Court

Bishop David Oyedepo
By SaharaReporters, New York

Robert Igbinedion, the lawyer suing on behalf of the teenage girl humiliated with a dirty slap by Bishop Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church in a video which gained worldwide publicity, has filed an appeal challenging the judgement which gave victory to the wealthy Bishop in an Ogun State High Court two months ago.

The appeal (Suit No: MT/73/2012) stated that the trial Judge, Mobolaji Ojo placed unnecessary and undue reliance on technicalities of the case to the detriment of the suit.

Mr. Igbinedion said that the judge erred in law by concluding that a better affidavit, which he filed to replace the former one after a preliminary objection was raised by the respondent, contained fresh issues.

The appeal faulted the grounds on which the judgement was held. The appeal stated that plaintiff lawyer did not necessarily need to prove his presence during the particular service or show the date or time since he had already presented video evidence that the incident actually took place. Igbinedion also said he did not necessarily need to present the victim, whom he represented as 'Miss Justice' in the suit, before pursuing the case.

 "The Learned Judge failed to advert his mind to the Preamble to the Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedure) Rules, 2009 which obliged him to encourage and welcome public interest litigations in the human rights field on behalf of the poor, the illiterate and the vulnerable, amongst others", the appeal statement read.

It also challenged the judgement for not ratifying the issue of the court's jurisdiction on the matter as raised by the respondents' counsel in a preliminary objection before going ahead to dismiss the suit. "Where the Respondent is challenging the court’s jurisdiction to hear the Application, he may apply to the court for an order striking out the suit or setting aside the proceeding", it said.

The lawyer also noted that the judge held that the victim of the slap was a 'fictitious character' who is non-existent and has no standing,

In that judgement, the judge asked: "Who is Miss Justice, how old is she, what is her standing in life, what are her particulars? The court must be able to ascertain and cannot be left to speculate on the identity of the person whose right is being sought to be enforced by declaratory orders, award of damages and injunctive orders. The court cannot issue and make order in favour of a ghost victim/applicant. If I may ask, should this action succeed, who is going to be the beneficiary of the monetary award sought.”
Mr. Igbinedion in the appeal suggested that that view, by the judge is irrelevant, discriminatory and deliberately calculated to arrive at a favourable decision.

He wrote: "The Appellant has by his further and better Affidavit given many privileged reasons why he cannot disclose the complete identity of the victim to prevent her from further harm.

"The learned trial Judge failed to advert his mind to the provisions of Rules 32(2) (b) which states that in presenting a matter to the court, a lawyer shall disclose the identity of his clients he represents and the person who briefed him unless such disclosure is priviledged or irrelevant", the appealant stated further.
A video footage shows Bishop Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church, also known as Winners Chapel, during an alter call in his church at Ota, where, during an alter call, accused a teenage girl of witchcraft and slapped her across the face for declining witchcraft but saying she was a 'witch-for-Christ.' The video was uploaded online and spread cross all social media sites.

The Bishop during another service in his Church, following the slapping footage going viral, boasted about the act and claimed he was a 'Baba witch' himself.

The incident resulted in a cyber war between those loyal to the Bishop and others who believed the act was wrong.  Mr. Igbinedion filed the suit challenging the Bishop's slapping of the young lady, asking the Bishop to compensate the humiliated girl, with the sum of N2billion.

The judgement of 12th July at a High Court in Ota favored Bishop Oyedepo. The judgement had held that 'Miss Justice' was a ghost plaintiff and that the sum demanded cannot be paid to a ghost applicant.
Mr. Igbinedion’s appeal suit claims it is not an issue requiring the judge to determine how the counsel in the case would share in the compensation of N2billion.

"It is ultra vires the power of the trial judge in determining a fundamental right application to question how a victim who is ably represented by counsel will get proceed of judgment and go ahead to dismiss the suit on that ground," the appeal statement.

It would be recalled that in another case, Mr. Igbinedion successfully prosecuted Reverend King, who was then sent to Kirikiri Prison.

HOLDEN AT IBADAN

NOTICE OF APPEAL
                 
                                                         Appeal No:
Suit No: MT/73/2012
BETWEEN:                                                                      

BARRISTER ROBERT IGBINEDION                             …………             APPELLANT

AND

1. BISHOP DAVID OYEDEPO
2. THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE            ………………….           RESPONDENT
    LIVING FAITH CHURCH WORLDWIDE
    (AKA WINNERS CHAPEL)
   
TAKE NOTICE that the Appellant being dissatisfied with the Judgment/Decision of the High Court of Justice of Ogun State, Ota Judicial Division, contained in the Judgment of His Lordship Hon. Justice Mobolaji A. Ojo, Judge dated the 12th day of July 2012 doth hereby appeal to the Court of Appeal upon the grounds set out in paragraph 3 and will at the hearing of the appeal seek the reliefs set out in paragraph 4.

And the Appellant further states that the names and addresses of the persons directly affected by the appeal are those set out in paragraph 5.

2. Part of the decision complained of:  The whole decision

3. Grounds of Appeal:

a.    The Learned Trial Judge erred in law when he held as follows:

“Meanwhile, the respondents’ counsel in his oral submissions picked holes in the Further and Better affidavit of the applicant, contending that the applicant raised new and fresh issues in the said further and better affidavit which the respondents had no opportunity in law to respond to. Learned SAN urged the court to strike out the offensive depositions from the further and better affidavit and the Written address and Reply on points of Law. I have examined the contents of the Further and Better affidavit of the applicant. I cannot agree more with the Respondent’s counsel that paragraphs 2, 3, 4, 5, and 8 of the said affidavit have introduced new and fresh issues into this case. It is settled law that where a case is conducted on affidavit evidence, the affidavits play the role of and are subject to the rules of pleadings in an action commenced by writ of summons. The Further and Better Affidavit herein is in the nature of a Reply to a Statement of Defence. Therefore based on a plethora of authorities, it is not permissible for the applicant to introduce fresh and new issues of facts in his Further and Better Affidavit. ……The aforesaid paragraphs are hereby struck out”.
 
Particulars or Error

(i)    The Appellants’ Further and Better Affidavit which was filed in opposition to the Respondents Counter Affidavit/Affidavit in support of Preliminary Objection did not introduce any “new or fresh issues” into the case, as the issues arising for determination in the case remained unchanged.

(ii)    In their Counter Affidavit, the Respondents asserted that the Applicant was representing a fictitious person. Consequently, the Appellant’s was obliged to depose to facts in answer to the said Counter Affidavit in his Further and Better Affidavit. This did not amount to the introduction of fresh and new issues.

(iii)    In his Judgment, the Learned Judge did not state or clarify the “new or fresh issues of facts” which he stated that the appellant introduced in his Further and Better Affidavit or provide any reasons why he considered them to be “new and fresh”. Indeed, the Learned Judge failed to properly direct his mind to the issues before him or provide the reasons for his conclusion.

(iv)    In any event, the Respondents had the liberty to file a Reply Affidavit in rebuttal to the Appellant’s Further and Better Affidavit. Their failure to do so ought to have been presumed as an admission of the facts deposed to by the Appellant and not, as the Learned Judge held, an introduction of “new and fresh issues”.

(v)    In the circumstances of the case, where the parties affidavit conflicted, then the Learned Judge to have directed the parties to call oral evidence to resolve the conflicts.

b.    The Learned Trial Judge erred in law when he held that as follows:

“I have carefully perused the two affidavits sworn to by the applicant and I am in a position to confirm the assertions of the respondents counsel that  

i.    The applicant did not claim to have attended the service of the 2nd Respondent at which the alleged slapping incidence took place.

ii.    He did not claim to have deposed to those facts based on information given to him by a disclosed source and that he believed that source.

iii.    The applicant did not state in any of the affidavits the date of the occurrence of the incidence.

The two affidavits of the applicant are therefore fundamentally flawed and defective. They are liable to be struck out and I hereby strike out the affidavit in support dated 17th April 2012 and the further and Better Affidavit dated 13th June 2012 sworn to by the applicant herein. This ground alone is enough to uphold the respondent’s preliminary objection.”

Particulars of Error

(i)    It was not disputed by the Respondents that the 1st Respondent slapped the Applicant’s client during a church service. Indeed, the Applicant provided photographs and video evidence of the slapping of the girl.

(ii)    Consequently, it was unnecessary for the Applicant to show in the affidavit that he attended the service where the slapping occurred, disclose the source of his information or state the date of the occurrence.

(iii)    It is well settled law that facts which are not disputed do not require further proof. It was therefore unnecessary for the Appellant to have to state in his affidavit either that he attended the church service where the slapping occurred or the source of his information.

(iv)    The Learned Judge failed to advert his mind to the Preamble to the Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedure) Rules, 2009 which obliged him to encourage and welcome public interest litigations in the human rights field on behalf of the poor, the illiterate and the vulnerable, amongst others.

(v)    The Learned Trial Judge placed unnecessary and undue reliance on technicalities.

c.    The learned trial judge erred in law when he dismissed the Appellant’s Application for various ultra vires grounds and reasons after determining the Respondents’ preliminary objection.

PARTICULARS OF ERROR

1.    The learned trial judge failed to advert his mind to the provisions of ORDER VIII (1) Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedure) Rules 2009.
‘‘Where the Respondent is challenging the court’s jurisdiction to hear the Application, he may apply to the court for an order striking out the suit or setting aside the proceeding”

2.    The learned trial judge failed to assume or decline jurisdiction before going ahead to dismiss the suit.

3.    At preliminary objection determination the learned trial judge is only empowered to make following orders:-
(i)    An order striking out the Application for want of jurisdiction
(ii)    Setting aside the service of the originating Application.

d.     The learned  trial judge lacked power to adopt his “ arguments and conclusion” on the various grounds used in dismissing the Application at preliminary objection stage in the substantive suit because he did not advert his mind to the provisions of  ORDER IX of Fundamental Rights Enforcement Procedure Rules 2009 Where the court is bound to treat anything done or left undone in an Application as an irregularity except where it relates to:
(i)    Mode of commencement of the Application.
(ii)    The subject matter is not in Chapter IV of the 1999 Constitution or African Charter on Human And People’s Right (Ratification and enforcement) Act
 
e.    The learned trial judge erred in law when he struck out the Photograph and Video evidence (Exhibit 1 & 2 Applicant’s Further and Better Affidavit Par. 4) which showed the Appellant’s client being dehumanized by the 1st Respondent.

PARTICULARS OF ERROR
(i)     The Appellant complied fully with provision of Evidence Act 2007 for the successful admission of secondary evidence by the court.
(ii)    The Respondents were given a Notice to Produce the primary of evidence of the Video tape as well as photograph which is in their possession but failed.
f.    The learned trial Judge erred in law when held as follows;

“Who is Miss Justice, how old is she, what is her standing in life, what are her particulars? The court must be able to ascertain and cannot be left to speculate on the identity of the person who whose right is being sought to be enforced by declaratory orders, award of damages and injunctive orders. The court cannot issue and make order in favour of a ghost victim/applicant. If I may ask, should this action succeed, who is going to be the beneficiary of the monetary award sought?

                                PARTICULARS OF ERROR
1.    All persons are equal before the law hence are expected to get same outcome giving same situation so information about the status of one person before arriving at a favourable decision is irrelevant and discriminatory.
2.    The Appellant has by his further and better Affidavit given many privileged reasons why he cannot disclose the complete identity of the victim to prevent her from further harm.
3.    The learned trial Judge failed to advert his mind to the provisions of Rules 32(2) (b) which states
“In presenting a matter to the court a lawyer shall disclose-
The identity of his clients he represents and the person who briefed him unless such disclosure is priviledged or irrelevant” (Emphasis mine)
4.    It is ultra vires the power of the trail judge in determining a fundamental right application to question how a victim who is ably represented by counsel will get proceed of judgment and go ahead to dismiss the suit on that ground.

g.    More grounds of appeal will be filed upon receipt of Ruling of the Court.

4. Relief(s) sought from the Court of Appeal:

h.    Setting aside of the Ruling/Decision of the Lower Court delivered on 12th day of July, 2012 and granting the reliefs sought by the Appellant in the case.

5. Persons directly affected by the Appeal:

WAKE UP EVERYBODY!!! The

WAKE UP EVERYBODY!!!
The Bishop I know wouldn’t react to any of your comments. He minds his souls rescue mission. But I advice everyone to mind his/her words as there’s a reward for every idle talk. ‘Touch not my anointed n do my Prophet no harm… by your destructive tongues.

Spot on with this write-up, I really think this site needs a great deal more attention. I’ll probably be back again to read more, thanks for the advice! site de bon de réduction

Pals be careful hw u air ur minds

Every professional knws the ethics of his profession. What initiated d slap we dnt knw! We should all knw that the Bishop in question was led by a Spirit and if d girl had claimed to b a witch for Christ, therefore, there must have been a spiritual clash (here there is a saggregation of spirits) which the supreme power, the Spirit of the true God, has all it takes to subdue His subject under His foot. So be careful how u air out ur canal views........

Sanusi from the north. You

Sanusi from the north. You thing Nigerians are more religious than European , correct. So also, Nigerian Muslims are more religious or more fanatical than the Arabs that are the originator of Islam. Church leaders are influencing leaders you said, correct. So also are Islamic leaders determine what the government do. It's better to stay within your jurisdiction . The greatest blasphemy is for anyone to call herself witch for Jesus.

How dare u insult a man of

How dare u insult a man of God I am 10 years o

Good it's in Appeal

I am very happy that the lawyer went to Appeal Court.Let the Judiciary be upright.

MY CONTRIBUTION

Y'all can yap and yarn as much as you want , as a matter of fact its easier to sit behind your computers and judge others , i am no fan or loyalist to the Bishop so before the replies start coming in think t

Someone said in these comments that if the incident took place in the US , ""the Bishop would be exchanging white clothes for Oranges"" Nice observation, unfortunately it didn't , We are all Nigerians, Be you Hausa , Ibo , Yoruba, we had our own state of mind , our own mode of thinking , our tradition before we were colonized , there's a bit of that tradition left in each of us , I do not know what the gurl did or why she was slapped , but base this incident on Ijinle Yoruba's mentality, Anyone older than you can slap you anywhere , there was no court back then what would you have done ?

Shit i forgot the last point i wanted to make , 1quater word is enough for the wise lolz

IBOS & THEIR OLD WORLD OF FATHER DR DAVID OYEDEPO

Ndigbo of OFOR and their Father Dr Bishop David Oyedepo(PAPA) of the old world of men. When a Man died in Iboland his next of King is his 1st Son which is Ofor Power that denied women their rights in Iboland. Jesus Christ was sold his price of 30 silvers were used to pay for land as his wife, the Earth is Holy Ghost and Mother Grace. Women must be the head of His inheritance the church being the wife. if Holy Ghost is the Head of Church of Christ there will be no Classism, Racism, Tribalism, Sexism, Genderism and divisions between the angels and men. The angels are the gays and lesbians. In Iboland where we have more Rev Fathers in Africa than Ireland the issue of OSU and Ohu is still in the circle. Slavery in Africa began with selling of women before they began to sell men. Iboland was where major women trade began.It's the reason J. Rawlings of Ghana failed Ibos during the war because he is the son of woman.

We r

We r

I'm rili beginning to realize

I'm rili beginning to realize d seriousness of this singular act. If we analyze d event very technically, we cld derive two things. First, assuming d poor gurl actually claimed to be a a 'witch for Christ, then d right approach was to respond to her spiritually by condemning d evil spirit which migjht hv possessed d gurl and not looking at d whole thing from d physical perspective.

DR OYEDEPO GO BACK TO YOUR FOUNDATION

The foundation of Dr Oyedepo is Arch Bishop Idahosa The Father of Pentecostal Church although the foundation of Arch Bishop Idahosa is Assemblies of God. The Testimony of New Perfect Will of Christ he performed with Late Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa. Who died for his wife to become the head of the Church. When Boko Haram bombed the Churches of Christ in Nigeria I said that Christ was not in his church if He is in his church no body can bomb it but Nigerians rised against me. Now comes the truth, Mother Holy Ghost as the fullness of Christ has return to takes over Her church. The enemy of man is his own house hold. Enemy of Christ is the Christians not Boko Haram because Christians rejection of the truth opened door for Boko Haram's destruction. In USA is battle for re-election of President Obama who will ushered in 1st Woman President of USA.Mothers wake up for New World.

EVERY MATTER HAS ITS OWN MESSAGE WHETHER FOR GOOD

Every Matter has its own message whether the message is for good or bad.This issue has opened a great chapter for New One World.Bishop David Oyedepo's problem and problem of Church of Christ being bombed by Boko Haram were all came from one source. CHANGE OF HEAD AND FAITH OF CHURCH OF CHRIST. FROM WILL OF THE FATHER TO WILL OF THE MOTHER.The change which I called Christ Wisdom Last Salvation.To give the inheritance of the dead Father Jesus Christ to His wife not his Son. Then the Son received from the Mother to be Mother and Son. This testimony of Jesus Christ and Holy Ghost were fulfilled in Nigeria with Late Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa who his wife took over his ministry.
The Price of Jesus Christ of 30 Silvers were used to redeemed the Mother Earth from the slavery of the Jews, but Church of Christ refused the Woman will be the head of the Church of Her Late Husband.

THIS WAR IS MORE DAVID OYEDEPO IS ALL OVER EVEN IN USA

This war of change is more than Dr Bishop David Oyedepo.It's the root of all problems even in USA. it's war of Change, from Will of The Father to the Will of the Mother. Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa died for the will of the Mother to take place. All Living Faith in the universe not Christians only but all even the government and Roman Catholic Churches, Muslims etc they all belong to the will of the Father who sacrifces the Son. The Will of the Mother comes with Last Salvation Ground Zero which made The Will of the Father, which is 9 Digits of Death and 11 disciples of Jesus Christ that empowered the Will of the father on the earth to become Ground Zero. Their death is called Ground Zero the end of the Old world of men.Therefore Dr Oyedepo and others come down and accept the truth.

ROBBERS CAN NOT OPERATE, BOKO HARAM CAN NOT OPERATE

Every change must begin with faith.The end of the world is the end of old man of the Faith of the father. being you Christian of today, Judaism, Islam, Buddhuism, Hinduism, Tradition, Customs, Governments etc are of men.Dr David Oyedepo is one of the head of the Faith of The Father which made Holy Ghost a gift for men. While Holy Ghost is at war with men to free Herself from slavery of men, she will come with defer wisdom to fight men.The Dr Oyedepo lady slapped as witch might be an angel of Holy Ghost. John Beloved is the Son of Holy Ghost whom Jesus Christ gives The New World of Mother and Son when his mission as a Son of Man ended on the cross. End of the world is change of will from will of the Father to Will Grace of the Mother Holy Ghost.

If given the chance, Bishop

If given the chance, Bishop Oyedepo would ask his church members to stone the poor girl to death. It was primitive and a clear case of child abuse to slap
the defenceless girl in public or in the privacy of his counselling room. If this happened in the United State Bishop Oyedepo would be exchanging his white suite for the orange.

We are ment to follow Christ

We are ment to follow Christ and imitate him. If Christ never used this approach, then we should not use it in our ministry. Christ showed humility and even without saying a word yet, contrary spirits will shout out and beg to leave, and his only reply will be GO. If the bishop actually did what Christ did, by giving thanks to God and calling on him with faith to prove Himself, he would have sent the faulty spirit away without slapping the poor girl. Only if the slap sent the sprit packing, then will I have accepted he was right, but in this circumstance his action was faulty. He should repent of his actions.

Bishop's Case?

But he won the first case. Hence the appeal. I believe they really want to claim damages.

Must this Man brutalise and

Must this Man brutalise and insult this poor girl in order to make more millions?these religious zealots whom in support of this Froud star cum Pastor should ask themselves if this poor girl was one of our corrupt policticans will he Sumon the courage to slap the polictican if he thinks that polictican is a witch/wizened .In Nigeria every evil action we tool under religion is allowed.

"BISHHOP" DAVID OYEDEPO THY SATANIC POWERS WILL BE CRUSHED

It is unfortunate that Nigerians look at this shameful abuse of human right different and yet the same Nigerians will come out screaming when Soldiers or Police office brutalize or do the same thing to Nigerians. This so called "Bishop" David Oyedepo is demonic and need to be stopped. If he is worth any thing he should not have allowed this issue to drag on, he should have settled it privately but he thinks his stolen money from the masses will buy him justice. I have so much regards for Mr. Robert Igbinedion for standing up for the masses at any given time. Those who still sing the praise of this rogue David Oyedepo will themselves meet same dehumanization in the life. At least David Oyedepo's Satanic verses will and has failed him this time. He cannot bribe his way in the Appeal Court in Ibadan as he did at the Ogun High Court. The pattern of the judgement says it all

This is also a Criminal Matter

This case should be prosecuted criminally. What difference does it make when a Nigerian soldier or Peace Officer or a religious leader commits assault and battery on innocent Nigerian Citizen. What a country - every privileged person just uses their position as a means of oppression.
From Genesis to Revelation, there was no single mention of witch or witches in the entire Bible: There are references to the practices of witchcraft, divinatioon, sorcery, magic, etc. but these are all arts of, allegedly, physically invoking the supernatural to influence the natural course of events and, the process can be observed by naked eyes. The idea of witches as we know it in Nigerian or African religious settings have no foundation in any of the borrowed two major religions - Christianity or Islam.

mid week service offering

This a shame that bishop will allow the case go to court. 1 cor 6 says clearly that Christians can take one another to court. There must be an elder in the church to settle them. The reason is purely because as Christians we can't open the window for unbelievers to judge us. What scripture or practices are we really following. GOD should come quickly and judge this world beginning with His church so we can just put an end to the rubbish. He is spending weekly offering on lawyers. Am ashamed of these gospellers.

Again, the despicable lawyer

Again, the despicable lawyer will be shamed. It appears he is megalomanic and demonic-inclined. Let him beware. Nobody kick against the Church of Jesus Christ and go free. The story of Herod can tell him better. He is playing with fire and jeopardising his family future. God is still a consuming fire!

But Bishop Won The First Case.

But he won the first case. Hence the appeal. I believe they really want to claim damages.

Waste of Energy

though i do not support the slapping, but think this lawyer is wasting his time and energy and may seeking some public notice. Because we have far worse things in the society that he should have fight for .

hello

I put it that they jst wnt 2 tarnish the image of a man of God nd do not judge wat ix nt clear 2 U̶̲̥̅̊ bishop oyedepo saw other b4 slapping dix particular gurl its better U̶̲̥̅̊ all look into dix matter carefully.

Its a big shame to Xtianity

That the so called bishop is only escaping justice on technicalities like electoral cases in Nigeria shows he commited the act.  My best advice, if he knows he is man of God as he claimed, is to settle out of court.  if not he shoul expect more humiliations.
