The controversial sale of Alpha International Christian Centre, AICC, without the knowledge of its members by the founder, Bishop Chinedu Adigwe, has set the church members against the Bishop as both prepare for war.
P.M.NEWS gathered that Adigwe sold the church located at 8, Council Street Ojodu, Lagos State Southwest, Nigeria, to the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, without informing the church members.
Aside the church building, he also sold other church properties, including chairs, musical equipment, fans and the public address system.
The congregation learnt about the sale of the church when the RCCG men led by their provincial pastor came during a Sunday service to inspect the properties and assess the church members whom he had negotiated with the RCCG .

 The shocked members claimed that the bishop sold the church without informing them and was planning to relocate to America with the money.
The members are protesting that he should not have sold the church without their approval because they jointly built and owned the church.
They are now poised to reclaim the church. They have appealed to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to investigate the matter.
They alleged that Adigwe secretly changed the members of the church’s Board of Trustees at Corporate Affairs Commission and replaced their names with those of his children to perfect his plan of selling the church.

 


In response, Bishop Adigwe claimed that his decision to sell the church was a divine direction.
He said that God instructed him to do so and relocate to Atlanta in America for another divine assignment with his wife.
But he did not explain whether God told him not to tell his members before selling the church.
The former pastor of the Redeemed Evangelical Mission, TREM, who established the church with the financial support of his members, said that the church was losing steam and he had to quickly transfer it to RCCG.

He said he did not need to get approval from the leaders of the church because the church belonged to him and he appointed them as leaders.
On why he chose to sell it to RCCG, he said it was his wife who saw the vision and he instructed his lawyer to start discussion with the church (RCCG)
When P.M.NEWS visited the church premises, the RCCG was renovating the church.
It was gathered that the church has been temporarily closed pending the time the renovations will be completed.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! This story is very funny! I am just reading for the first time that a church can be for sale. But really, can a church be sold along with the entire congregation?!  Nigerians don suffer! God said they should move to the United State! Why is it that our people,after spoiling the name of this nation, the next thing for them is to flee to another country! Nigeria is the only country that I know that is citizenry live as if their motherland is not their home! After stealing and molesting the entire congregation of their mind mentally , the pastor want to flee!

The pastors most be nabbed and charged for playing on human intelligence!!! SHINE YOUR EYES! Roll Eyes
