Mild drama ensued at the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Abule-Ijesha in Yaba area of Lagos State yesterday as members of the church threw out their pastor, identified as Mr. Micheal Oni, over argument on the disbursement of the church’s funds.
According to members of the church, the pastor who was recently transferred to their church from Ibadan, was demanding for a remuneration beyond his salary scale.
In an interview with TVC, a member of the church, Oluseyi Omotajo said, “he came with a letter of Level 7/ step 1 and he was demanding for level 9/step 9. We then told him that it won’t be possible, but to make peace reign we decided to pay him based on level 8; we paid for three months but he insisted that we have to pay him based on level 9.”
Another member, Sunday Adelu said, “He has been causing chaos in the church, fighting members, insulting members and raising funds and keeping the money in his purse without giving to the church authorities.”
Narrating his own side of the ordeal, Pastor Oni said the church members had refused to duly render accounts of the church to him.
