Convicted Genesis prophet returns to church

 There was jubilation on Sunday when the Senior Shepherd-in-Charge of the Celestial Church of Christ, Genesis Global, Prophet Israel Ogundipe, who was granted post-conviction bail, returned to the church.

The Nation

Members burst into shouts and songs of appreciation when he entered the church premises.

In a video posted on Instagram by the church, the convicted pastor was seen leading praise and worship.

The Nation had reported the Court of Appeal in Lagos granted Ogundipe a post-conviction bail.

A three-man panel on April 1 granted Ogundipe bail on the ground of health conditions.

Justice Olabisi Akinlade had on November 18 sentenced the popular prophet to one-year imprisonment for converting a woman’s property to his personal use and stealing.

The court had found Ogundipe guilty of stealing and unlawful conversion of the property of a London-based architect, Mrs. Oladele Williams-Oni.
