LAGOS MARCH 2ND(NEWSRANGERS)-The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Lagos Zonal office yesterday, arraigned one Chimezie Chuta before Justice Mojisola Dada of the State High Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos.

The defendant, who was said to have been an active member of the Living Faith Church Worldwide for six years, sometime in 2013, proposed to the church to build an online digital media store that would showcase all of Bishop David Oyedepo’s books and audio messages online, to enable members of the church in the Diaspora to buy them and also receive digital copies.
.Investigation revealed that the project was approved by the Church absolutely free of charge on contract basis. It was further revealed that the defendant handed over all the relevant materials to the ICT department of the church.

.Justice Dada adjourned the case to March 7, 2018 for hearing of bail application and commencement of the trial.
