The Bishop of Egba Anglican Communion in Ogun State, Emmanuel Adekunle, has warned those who participated in looting the nation’s treasury to stay away from his church.
The bishop in his sermon to mark the Ogun State Police Command’s Thanksgiving Service for the 2016 Police Week/Easter Service at the St. Peter’s Cathedral Church, Ake, Abeokuta, warned that the church would not accept donations from stolen money and would reject tithes derived from ill-gotten wealth.
“‎Don‘t steal where you are working and bring to the church as donation or tithe, we will not accept such whether as donation or tithe. If we discover such, we will expose the donor,” he said.
The bishop said it had become common that treasury looters would donate lavishly to churches from their stolen wealth to the detriment of the suffering masses.
“In this church, I will neither accept donations from looters nor praise them. If I discover such, the donor will be handed over to security agencies for prosecution‎, but I want to assure that those with clean wealth will not be discouraged from contributing to the church,” he said.
Adekunle said people should be satisfied with whatever they have and all efforts should be made to discourage treasury looters from their sinful acts.
While reminding his listeners that Jesus Christ resurrected to reconcile believers with God, the bishop charged them to be strong in serving God.
