A Lagos State High court has sentenced popular Prophet Israel Oladele Ogundipe of CCC Global Genesis Church, to two-year imprisonment for defrauding a U.K- based woman.
The presiding Judge, Justice Olabisi Akinlade slammed a two year jail term on Prophet Israel who is the Sheperd-in-Charge of CCC Global Genesis church on Wednesday, November 18 after he was found guilty of charges leveled against him.
Oladele was charged with seven counts charges bordering on fraud and obtaining money by false pretenses, preferred against him by the Lagos State government.
The Prophet was sentenced for count two and four while counts 1,3, 5 ,6 and 7 were discharged for lack of evidence.
According to reports, he defrauded one Mrs. Olaide William Oni to the tune of N17m which she gave him to procure some landed properties on her behalf because she thought he was a good pastor.
Mrs. Olaide said she first met the man of God in 2002 during her visit to Nigeria, when she was taken to his church for prayers by her step-sister.
In her words, “He told me something about my husband in one of his prophecies, that I should not have anything jointly with him because he was having an affair behind my back.
He gave me a liquid to drink and I started vomiting. I was asked to sit down and he lighted a candle and said I should be there until the candle goes off.”
Speaking further, she alleged he took her in company of her step-sister and cousin to a bush in Sango Ota area of Ogun State, where she was allegedly bathed with some concoctions near a river.
According to her, her misfortune started when she returned to London, the prophet asked her to invest in landed property in Lagos, which she agreed. This she did after consultations with some persons.
She allegedly sent N17 million in five tranches of N900,000, N2.5 million, N8.5 million, N2.7 million and £12,000 between 2002 and 2005 to purchase the property on her behalf, which turned out to be a fraud.
“When I confronted him about this, he started threatening my life and blackmailing me”, she concluded.

Nkechi Blessing and Toyin Abraham have not been in good terms lately, but the younger one and former of the two has decided to do the needful by apologizing to the latter, Toyin Abraham.
Sometimes in a friendship or relationship, it is only in good taste that after one errs, the one who committed the error must be bold and humble to apologize, but it is also wisdom on the path of the one who has been hurt to also accept the apology and that was exactly what Toyin Abraham did when she realized Nkechi had finally apologized.
Although she is still on a drip following a relapse she had while filming on set, the heavily endowed and beautiful screen goddess, made a public apology in a social post on her Instagram handle.
She pointed out in the said post that she would have loved to have written a page full epistle, but in her current condition, she must take her last drip so she is able to make an apology to her mentor and “godmother” Toyin Abraham.
However, she is yearning for a quick and proper reconciliation her mentor and ‘mummy’ Toyin in person so she can properly apologize for her errors face to face.
However, she hopes to be forgiven before they meet.
Her apology read
“I WAS GOING TO WRITE A PAGE FULL OF EPISTLE.. BUT LET ME FINISH MY LAST DRIP AND COME SAY THEM TO YOU FACE TO FACE ..IN D MAIN TIME ..MUMMY MI EDAKUN EJEBURE.. I MISS YOU PLENTY @TOYIN_ABRAHAM”
Like a loving mother, Toyin used few words to convey her acceptance. She, therefore, replied that as a sign of acceptance, she loves and misses more.
“MY LOVE..IT’S FINE..I LOVE AND MISS YOU MORE”
The bad blood between the two commenced when Toyin was snubbed by Nkechi Blessing when she was about to launch her store in Lagos
