"We submit that slapping being an act of assault an item outside the provisions of Chapter 4 of the 1999 constitution and the African Charter, this court therefore lacks jurisdiction over same."

The multi billionaire founder of the Living Faith Christian Church International, Bishop David Oyedepo, has denied slapping a young member of his congregation; stating that neither he nor his church could be sued.

In a notice of preliminary objection filed at the High Court of Ogun State and made available to PREMIUM TIMES; Bishop Oyedepo maintained that he and his church are "non juristic persons" and therefore asked the court to strike out the suit as it lacked jurisdiction to adjudicate on the matter.

Robert Igbinedion, a Lagos based lawyer, had in April, filed a suit on behalf of the young lady, who was slapped during a church service, for the enforcement of the lady's fundamental rights to freedom from inhuman and degrading treatment, human dignity, fair hearing, and freedom from discrimination.

Mr. Igbinedion prayed the court to award the sum of N2bn as 'general and exemplary damages' against the bishop as well as compel him to publish a public apology in two national dailies and one international satellite television.

In a counter affidavit deposed by Olugbenga Adegboye, the church's senior legal officer, Bishop Oyedepo stated that "his ministry is a ministry where the holy bible is preached and people are prayed for without coercion."

The church also said that there is no record of anyone called Miss Justice - a sobriquet given to the young lady for the purpose of the suit - in any of its services organized in the past.

A written address to support the preliminary objection signed by F. B Agbanwu, the church's Solicitor, insisted that the matter is not within the Nigeria constitution or the African Charter on Human and People's Rights.

Furthermore, the church urged the court to determine whether Mr. Igbinedion is capable of "bringing this kind of application" before it and whether "it is proper to bring this application against the 1st and 2nd respondents (Bishop Oyedepo and his church respectively).

Arguing that both Mr. Igbinedion and the respondents cannot sue and be sued, Bishop Oyedepo's lawyers noted that the cause of action must centre on clear infringement of a fundamental right.

"The cause of action or principal claim in this application centres merely on slapping one Miss Justice by the 1st respondent.

"The slapping of Miss Justice is an act that could be described as an assault which is a criminal offence punishable under the criminal code...

"We submit that slapping being an act of assault an item outside the provisions of Chapter 4 of the 1999 constitution and the African Charter, this court therefore lacks jurisdiction over same."

The court sits, June 1, for parties to adopt their motion before judgment is fixed.

In December last year, a YouTube video of Bishop Oyedepo viciously slapping a young lady who admitted that she was "a witch for Jesus" during an altar call went viral on the internet.

A second video that surfaced days later showed the bishop justifying his action adding that it is "his ministry to slap" and that "if he sees another witch, he'll slap."

Only in Naija, with naija mentality... If we're so rightous in religions how come we're so poor to compare with non believer's countries....What a shame, we can never wake up, a good person to deliver naija from it's mess is yet to be born.....If a pastor will sit down nd lie for what he did, why would i sit down nd listen to him, what a shame.....

Buhari has been mentioned as one of the sponsors of boko haram, where is Igbinedion, why can't he sue buhari for all the killings, he is suing a man of God and all of you are opening your mouths to say nonsense. If the law of human right exists in Nigeria, slapping is better than killing. Please, Igbinedion of a lawyer, sue buhar cos those people he killed had right to life.

No witch is a 'poor' girl, if you know what witches do I dont think you would be here saying nonsense. Was she forced to come to the church and say nonsense? If she is a witch, let her go to there coven an not to the church, it is the house of God.

Would you people quit it with that "touch not my anointed" bulldust? That preacher is a smug, greedy, self-righteous bully and jerkwad who needs to be knocked off his perch.

I'm with you on this one, he can't go around smacking folks (slapping peopel), he needs to go to jail. While in jail, I hope they make him toss salad (suck dick).

In Benin, in Evbuotubu to be precise a Naked woman a witch was caught on High tension power-line early morning, she said her fuel finished and got herself stoked on top of the power-line. This woman was almost stoned to death by youth.

A little girl of 9 years confess how she took her mother's life was told to bring her father but she refused, those of u born n brought in Europe do not know anything about Africa witch, what they do and their evil, is just a pity that some of us who have lived in Africa are commenting nonsense.

Even if this man is jailed I won't be surprise bcos even Christ himself was killed after all the miracles he did and also lived a sinless life.

My prayer is simple, for as many who do not believe in witchcraft or who believe but yet condemning the man of God on this forum, may witches n wizard visit u all n ur families this year
