The General Overseer of Christ Glory International Gospel Center, Ikorodu, Lagos, Chris Anyalebechi was remanded on September 5, following his arraignment before Justice Babs Kuewumi for offence of fraud of which the pastor promised to buy a used ship for the company and sell it in parts or scraps on its behalf.
The charge, marked FHC/L/367C/2016, reads: “That you, Pastor Chris Anyalebechi, General Overseer, Christ Glory International Gospel Center, Ikorodu, Lagos, sometimes between April 2014 and March 2015, in Lagos, within the jurisdiction of the Federal High Court, by false pretence and with intent to defraud, obtained the sum of N85 million from a company known as Nestor Nwankwo of Zicozeen Nigeria Limited, by representing to the company that you will purchase for the company a used ship or vessel and sell same in parts or scraps on behalf of the company, a representation you knew to be false.”
The federal high Court in Lagos has therefore granted the pastor #10 million bail as his defense counsel applied for bail. The case was adjourned till November 28 for trail under the judgement of Justice Idris.
The pastor anyway pleaded not guilty to the charge.
God help your church oo.
