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 popular TV channel, TVC, a member of the Olusweyi 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 salaries 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 claimed that the church members have refused to comply to his orders, stressing that they are yet to duly render the financial accounts of the church to him.
