Christ Embassy Church, will on Thursday take to the streets of Lagos State, southwest Nigeria, to protest the non payment of their salaries.

According to PM News, the workers are accusing some top pastors of the church of playing politics with their salaries, while blaming Pastor Ifeoma Chiemeka for refusing to approve the payment of their arrears.

The Pastor is said to be following a directive that was issued by the Head Pastor and President of Believers Loveworld, Pastor Oyakhilome.

The aggrieved workers stated that in December 2014, some of them were retrenched and paid off while a few that remained were overworked and also denied their salaries which prompted them to petition the Lagos State Mediation Centre in April 2015 for intervention.

The workers also alleged to have sent Pastor Adegoke Adebayo and Pastor Ike Nnoli to represent them at the Mediation Centre and the parties agreed to meet again on May 22, 2015 after the workers might have been paid.

But the pastors refused to honour the agreement and also failed to show up at the adjourned date, a situation which has infuriated them and they (the workers) have now resolved to go on a peaceful protest on Thursday this week to draw the attention of Oyakhilome and Nigerians to their plight.

The controversial pastor, who was involved in a divorce mess with estranged wife Anita, over allegations that the clergyman was involved in extramarital affairs, has reportedly settled the impasse between them.
