It was a lingering crisis that rocked Bishop David Oyedepo-led Living Faith Church Worldwide, a.k.a Winners Chapel, over the disappearance of a little girl known as Praise from the church two years ago.
Samuel Eleng and his wife, Favour, had their two year-old twin daughter missing at the children’s department of the Canaanland, Winners Chapel headquarters, Sango Ota, Ogun State on Easter Sunday, April 17, 2011.
The little girl, Praise has now been found, two years after she was declared missing. The girl was brought to church on Sunday [Jun 16] by her parents.
The girl, now around four years was reportedly sold to a woman in Kano.
The kidnapper who took Praise away from the woman (Sunday School teacher) confessed to committing the crime. By the end of the church service, Praise had gone missing from the class in which she was left.
The kidnapper said he was struck with a strange disease after kidnapping Praise. He also became blind.
In addition to this, he said he was always seeing the founder of the church, Bishop David Oyedepo, pursuing him with a sword in his dream, hence his decision to confess his sin.
The Bishop said the self-confessed kidnapper was taken to a branch of Winners Church by his wife.
