The man of God said it happened after he had warned members against such criminal attitudes.

He said:

“In one of the Shilohs, I warned people and somebody was found trying to pick something that was not his and he ran mad immediately.”

This is the house of God, be careful

The bishop gave a strict warning to youths at the programme to desist from such a way of life, adding that it is highly risky to steal from the house of God.

He added:

“Be warned against picking anything that is not yours. Be warned, be warned. It’s a risk. Should anyone have an ulterior mission for being in camp? Be warned, it’s a dreadful place.”

Why Winners' pastors were sacked

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Oyedepo spoke on issues surrounding the massive sack of pastors.

The man said that when the church employed more than 7,000 pastors at once, social media never talked about it.

Speaking on those they relieved of their duties, he said the commission has no preacher who is a failure, saying the sacked people were unfruitful.

The bishop said:

"We have more employees in this organisation than most of the states."
