here was a mild drama recently during one of the services of the Living Faith Church aka Winners Chapel, Canaanland, Ogun after founder and presiding Bishop of the megachurch, Bishop David Oyedepo was attacked on the pulpit.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports the yet to be identified man beat the security network of the church and ascended the pulpit where Bishop Oyedepo was ministering, holding and dragging one of his legs.
It took efforts of security in the church to prevent the Bishop from falling over, while the security battled to keep the strange man away.
TNG learnt the incident occurred two Sundays before the Shiloh programme organised by the church last week.
A top source from the church said that the intruder came through the Love wing entrance of the church and tactically, was able to access the altar while Oyedepo was preaching.
There was a lapse in security as the huge crowd at the fourth service saw the strange man in white suit, made his way to the altar.
In a video that has gone viral on social media, the man held Bishop Oyedepo on one of his legs and was dragging him and would have brought him down before the security officers quickly intervened.
The security men and some leaders on the altar, including Oyedepo’s son David had to forcefully pulled the man away from the Bishop to prevent him from falling on the altar.
The man was bundled out of the church and was given the beating of his life by Oyedepo’s security operatives.
Since that ugly incident, security had been beefed up in the church and it was tighter at the just concluded Shiloh.
The security operatives who were on duty when the incident occurred have been changed.
