A source at the Muritala Mohammed International Airport revealed that the barring of Oyedepo, who holds a ‘C’ Visa that allows him entry into the UK for ten years, was communicated to airlines via an ‘Airline Alert’ on Saturday, 9 August, 2014′. The alert stresses that any airline that flouts the ban is liable to a fine of £2000, the source said.
Daily Mail and Guardian, accused Oyedepo’s Winners Chapel UK branch of ‘cynically exploiting supporters’.
The Daily Mail report revealed that Oyedepo’s Church ‘received £16.7 million in donations from followers who were told that God would give them riches in return’ and that ‘Followers are ferried in double-decker shuttle buses to the church, handed slips inviting them to make debit card payments, and are even told obeying the ministry’s teachings will make them immune from illness’.
