Celestial Church pastor gets bail in N11m fraud case

The Court of Appeal in Lagos on Thursday upheld the application for post-conviction bail by the Head of Genesis Parish of Celestial Church of Christ, Evangelist Israel Ogundipe. A three-man panel of the court granted Ogundipe bail on health grounds.

The justices held that the bail subsists pending the determination of Ogundipe’s appeal challenging his two-year jail term for defrauding a United Kingdom-based woman of N11 million.

A Lagos State High Court convicted and sentenced the televangelist last November, of defrauding Mrs Olaide Williams-Oni, following a trial that began in 2011.
