In one of the articles on #CNO, Sup. Evang. Barrister Olawole Famakinwa recently reacted to the on-going issue presently going on between the Ketu authority and Sup Evang. Omotosho Jorotom.
“Superior Evangelist S.O. Banjo in a speech at the unveiling of the 70th Anniversary Logo in Makoko recently stated that the EFCC had invited the members of the BOT, including himself, a banker of over 32 years of unblemished record to answer to allegations of ‘fraud, forgery, money laundering and theft’. He did not mention who made the allegations. It is safe to say that the allegations were contained in a petition made by Superior Evangelist Omotosho to EFCC in relation to the management or not of the funds of the Imeko Cathedral Building Project.
All members of the BOT have attended the offices of the EFCC to respond to this query. I have it on good authority that His Eminence was excused from going to the EFCC offices in Lagos on account of his alleged health conditions. The EFCC officers visited the Pastor in his residence at Imeko to grill him.
I appreciate the decency and dignity accorded the Pastor by the EFCC on this occasion. That discretion is rarely, if at all used. The EFCC have been known to use arrest warrants to bring an individual forcefully to its offices if the invited subject evades its summons or does not attend promptly. The newspapers are full of stories of people declared wanted and arrested at the earliest opportunity they are found.
I remember a woman who pretended to be sick was removed from her hospital bed and brought to EFCC offices to answer her query. It was suspected that her illness was feigned. It may interest you to note that one of the aides to the Pastor tried to abuse this privilege of having the EFCC in Imeko by constantly interfering and interrupting the interrogation of His Eminence the Pastor by the Investigation Officer of the EFCC.
This gentleman was firmly and promptly put in his place. If the interview had been held in the EFCC offices in Lagos or Abuja this lackey and sidekick will not be allowed into the room. He is not the Pastors legal adviser. That is a story for another day.”
