Oyedepo’s school request under investigation — Britain/Punch

November 9, 2014


The British government has said it is investigating David Oyedepo’s Winners’ Chapel International’s request to establish an independent school in the country.

The fee-paying school, Kingdom Heritage Model School in Dartford, was set to open to children from the age of four in September.

The school, which will teach “Biblical truths” in each subject, is currently being considered by the British Department for Education. The church itself is said to be under investigation by the Charity Commission.

In 2011, Oyedepo was, reportedly, captured on video assaulting a young girl at one of his church service. The girl was alleged to be possessed by some evil spirits.

In 2012, the Metropolitan Police stated that children believed to be possessed by evil spirits or believed to be witches are at “clear and immediate risk of significant harm.”

    As much as the UK enjoys and encourages foreign investments into the country, they are however, more aware now and hopefully will do thorough investigation into Oyedepo’s incentives and his influence in Nigeria. Even if he ‘slips’ through the net, UK government will make sure the pupils at the school are protected under the British law.

      Dear Fola,

      Thanks for this.

      A Greek gift, historically, was bad and must be suspected until found to be genuine. Yeah, the Brits, for their sakes – and everybody’s in the sane world – are hopefully more aware now.

      My regards,
