The Lagos State High Court in Ikeja on Wednesday convicted a popular Lagos-based cleric, Prophet Israel Ogundipe, of fraud charges.
Ogundipe, who is the Shepherd-in-Charge of Celestial Church of Christ Global Genesis parish, had been dragged to court on the complaint of a London-based architect, Mrs Olaide Williams-Oni, who accused him of obtaining a total of N17m from her with the promise to help her procure some landed property.
In her testimony before the court, Williams-Oni had told the court that she met the cleric in 2002 during her visit to Nigeria, when she was taken to his church for prayers by her step-sister.
The trial judge, Justice Olabisi Akinlade sentenced Prophet Oladele after she found him guilty of two count charges out of the seven he was charged with.
