According to an exclusive report by Trumpet Media Group, the High Court in London resolving a dispute between Trustees of Celestial Church of Christ (CCC) Edward Street Parish London and its sacked Shepherd-in-Charge and Pastor’s Representative – Prophet Dennis Olumide Lawson, has upheld the latter’s removal
His Honour Judge Hodge QC also made an Interim Payment Order against Lawson for 80% of the £130,000 legal costs of the Church Trustees in the sum of £90,000.
As an alternative to the granting of an injunction sought by the Church Trustees, Lawson was offered an opportunity to give an undertaking to restrain from any future passing-off or use of the name “Edward Street Parish,” or entry into the Parish’s church building.
The dispute which began in 2013, led to in-fighting and a highly-polarised congregation; and saw police officers visiting the church on a number of occasions to maintain peace.
Before this time, prophet Dennis news from the grapevine has it that Prophet Dennis Olumide Lawson was declared persona non-grata at Olajuwon Tejuosho Parish over an issue that was not well spelt out. This was due to a prophetess who allegedly gave him ‘wrong’ spiritual messages and he was said to have stopped the prophetess from further giving him a message, saying that the prophetess was reeling out things she might have gathered from people about him.
According to the report, he was said to have been penned down to be the service conductor for the 2016 adult harvest thanksgiving service only for some people in the know about his controversy with Edward Street, Parish, London to have presented some nasty reports to some members of Tejuosho, Lagos Parish thus denying him that official service in the altar…This, we learnt, caused a lot of uproars as the prophetess, according to one of the eye-witnesses who gave us a hint about this development, said it openly that if truly God had sent her to him to deliver the message and he shamed her publicly like that, he (prophet) Lawson, would be disgraced publicly too. How true this is, we do not know.
But for the simple lifestyle prophet Lawson, he kept his cool and didn’t make any fuss about that as we were told. On the other hand, prophet Olumide is known to be a charitable individual who is always ready to assist anybody that comes his way for any financial support. This he was said to have well displayed at Tejuosho, Lagos, the last time he visited.
