N2billion Assault Lawsuit Filed Against Flamboyant Nigerian Bishop Gets A Hearing Date-PREMIUM TIMES

Bishop David Oyedepo
By Ben Ezeamalu

The clergyman has come under attacks for slapping a member of his congregation during an exorcism service
The N2billion suit instituted against the founder of the Living Faith Christian Church International, Bishop David Oyedepo, for slapping a young lady in his church would be heard at the Ogun State High Court on May 2nd.

Robert Igbinedion, the lawyer who filed the suit on behalf of the young lady, two weeks ago, is seeking the court to award N2billion as 'general and exemplary damages' against the flamboyant pastor.

Mr. Oyedepo was named the richest pastor in Nigeria last year by Forbes magazine with an estimated worth of over N20billion.

Mr. Igbinedion says he intends to launch a barrage of petitions against the bishop "to stop him until investigations are over so he will not escape."

"To let him know we are serious, I'm going to send a petition to the Ogun State Commissioner of Police on Monday to investigate the assault," Mr. Igbinedion told Premium Times over the phone, on Saturday.

"I'm also going to send copies of the petition to the American embassy, the UK, and the EU to stop him from coming into their countries until the police clears him," he added.

This lawyer most stupid lawyer on earth.

I hope Ogun state will throw the lawyer case back to because , the name Igbinedion is a curse name .He can do such a thing in Edo state because majority of the people of edo state are cursed nothing good will ever come from Igbinedion family

God Bless you sir!!!!!!!!! i

God Bless you sir!!!!!!!!! i have nothing to say rather then copy ur comments and paste
Hello there! I was in that meeting during Shiloh 2010. People should stop all these miss information and for the ones that have been misled to comment negatively because of SR dubious cut and paste may God forgive YOU! It was not a deliverance session, it was an altar call and the lady came out but later her own witch for Jesus which was a Sacrilege, when the bible said suffer not a witch to live - hence that reaction to her blasphemous statement.
And mind you the Customary system prohibits blasphemy by section 204 of Nigeria's Criminal Code. Section 204 is entitled "Insult to religion"

ARE U BORN AGAIN?

If u are born again u wouLd not be insultive, rather pray for d lawyer.Have a personal dealing with God inStead of Papa papa songs.

He slapped a girl claiming to

He slapped a girl claiming to be a witch for jesus in d church, so what?! Dats blasphemy. Even Jesus flogged mercilessly people who came to buy and sell in His Father's house, what r u people saying?! I can bet my next two months allowance dat d lawyer will lose his case spectacularly nd sometin will happen to him. U don't go against a man of God esp when he haz done nothing wrong.Waz Jesus paraded for cleaning out d temple? We're in d so called 21st century and dat gives us d right to disrespect God?! Dis generation is finished! *smh*

What Took the girl to the church?

There are rules governing any religious setting or cult.. there are different ways of exorcism... healing etc.. in the hospital, u can be slapped, bound or even sliced if that is a means to an end .. even gassed.. so if its a healing method adopted by the pastor, i dont see anything wrong... The lawyer is fighting a stupid and useless battle, am not sure he knows his job well.... because even on TV we have seen followers or people being Pushed by Men of God and they fall head down and even pass out.. How many policemen came in to arrest the preachers.... honestly am sure most people contributing here are very uneducated. On the contrary, there are followers who are possessed who ends up even biting or choking the pastors during exorcism...

All of u are a bunch of

All of u are a bunch of fools, talking about my Papa in this manner. The Ogun state police or whosoever the lawyer thinks is going to arrest my Papa cannot try it! They don't have the guts and besides they can imagine what is going to befall them. Guess what my Papa has not even given this issue a thought so mr hungry lawyer go and sleep! Find a better job ur in the wrong proffession! Mr lawyer, have u ever slapped ur house girl before???? I can hear u say yes! Ok go and pay her family in the village N2Billion, idiot! Jobless fool ur trying to be popular abi? Instead of u to join the Winners and see if ur own blessing will come or not. All of u reading keep ur ears to the ground watch what will become of this lawyer and mind u I'm not saying he will die, because our God does not work like that, but keep watching this foolish lawyer. If anybody knows his wife better go and warn her to advice her stupid husband, its for their own good!

This is not funny

Lawyer Igbinedion ,i pity ♑u and Ūя̲̅ generations yet unborn.♑u better go and get something better doing and stop pushing the girl and his family into pRoblems also for their lineage.I pity ♑u once again.

The anointed

Evrybdy is entitld 2 hs r hr opnon bt let's be carful & weigh evry comnt we ar postin thru dis medium. We ar 2 respnd 2 issues not 2 be throwing abusive words. Jesus, our perfect example, when the need be applied cain on people in the temple. Colleagues, let's be careful of the way we talk to the "ANOIOTED OF GOD" not bcos of now but for posterity sake. Yes, God is interested in this case for Man of God to be made completed

Nedu d Hypocrite!

Nedu, mugu what ever u call urself u re a goat n as demonic as ur pastor. Touch not my anointed n do my prophet no harm abi? Yet ur prophet is busy slapping, abusing n harming people. Come out into d light. U re not a christian 4 placing a curse on d Lawyer whom was sensible enough to realise that a little child has been abused by a conceited con man. Dnt b supprised if properly investigated, oyedepo might turn out a serial killer. There had been several instances like that world over!

re - law suit

it is incredible, Nigerian pastors must learn from this, if missionaries who brought us this Christianity religion was not flamboyant this way, they use their money to cloth naked Africans,build houses for our forefather to live, feed them and train their children, show love to them, what is the rationale or the pride when you are quoted the richest pastor in Nigeria even in Africa, while some of your members are lavishing in poverty, unemployment.........i salute only Tb joshua for his kindness............for me this case of assault is lesson from God to Mr oyedepo to repent

SHUT UP!!!!

Pls let's all be quiet. Ur comments don't change d news. Its bn posted alredi, read and leave. Ur not to judgem keep ur opinions to urself. How was U̶̲̥̅̊‎​​ day, hope it was aii. Love U̶̲̥̅̊‎​​ all
