N2billion "hot slap" suit against Bishop Oyedepo gets hearing date

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.
