I am surprised.

Tobi has done really really well despite his short stay in UK. He has taken a lot of drug boys and forgotten people off the street even housing them.

However I have no clue about this blood of a thing. My fear for him at all times is his age and the environment he now sojourn.

Hope he wasn't framed up.
I was able to view some of his impacting character to the youths on his social media, that was how I knew few things about him. He's a young dude and his passion for the youths and drug addicted ones to revive them and touching their lives through the words of God and restructuring them to a new society made me like him but allegations like this breaks the heart and destroys every good deeds one has done. I hope he's innocent

They need to investigate all of those African churches. Most of them are exploitative.

It's people and their money, o great hater of the church. Please ask also, whose money is used to sponsor people for hajj? Is it personal money or taxpayer's money? Should the hundreds of billions used for hajj from government coffers be subject to investigation too?

Yes. It should.

Government should not subsidize such nonsense.

Pastor Tobi was planning to bring in investors to Nigeria as well and even some of his followers were asking him to go into politics . Well, we are watching as things unfold. Happy Sunday Nairalanders, communicate with us if you want to make your aluminium windows. He was even planning to start a recycling company in Nigeria to create job opportunities as he claimed
UK, unlike Nigeria is not a banana republic, if he is innocent, he has no cause to worry.

When are we having a regulatory commission to carry out similar investigation in Nigeria? The British brought Christianity to Nigeria and they are sensible enough to create a commission to regulate and investigate churches in their country. But in Nigeria, Churches are untouchable and pastors are beyond reproach.

The last time someone at Financial reporting council of Nigeria attempted to issue a regulatory code to guide the operation of churches, he was fired in less than a week after the issuance of the code.

Nothing is regulated in Nigeria, including the government itself. No code of conduct, practice or ethics in all spheres of discipline in Nigeria, that is why the county is lawless.

The guy is obviously living well with gullible people's sweat and blood. You have to be among the top five per cent in the UK to afford the kind of home he has.

How can Pastors be living in opulence at the expense of the church? Yet, some gullible fools would support them just like they support 9ja Politicians. I'm not surprised anyway when Osinbajo and several other Pastors joined a dirty thing as 9ja Politics, it says a lot.

Private jets, exotic cars, exotic houses, expensive schools etc... yet majority of their members suffer.

May God Almighty seek revenge on these fvcked up individuals portraying as Pastors and acting like God to their congregants. Bastards!

Lot of Nigerians are mentally challenged.

They won't finish a discussion without including, " My Pastor said "...

Not that God said.

The real reason why systems in Nigeria are being hijacked to drag the entire country into the abyss is simple: the majority are unemployed, therefore having time to attend special prayer programs in church. The churches grew on account of this.
Trying to demonize churches now is futile. Many of us are finding employment and succour in church now, especially with the government skewed against Christians.
Maybe you should try employing the majority of the people, and they might be too busy to do church as they do it now.

So majority of Nigerians are employed by the church? undecided

Oga, do you know why it will be difficult to regulate religion in Nigeria? The answer is simple, politicians need them to win election and the religious leaders in tge country recognize this fact and they are taking advantage of it..

I hope the regulatory commission will also affect mosques, or will it only be churches?
Part of what the UK Charity commission does is that when people donate to charities including churches and sign the gift aid scheme, if the donors are tax payers, the charities can reclaim about 25% or so of whatever amount that individual donated from the government. So for example, if I am a tax payer and I donate £1000 to my church, the church can claim an additional £250 from the government, and that will come from my taxes. That is the government's way of supporting charities of which churches are members.
Will the Nigerian government also do this when they start regulating churches?

If you live in the Uk, operate a church or charity organisation but you live large, drive expensive range of vehicles with that exotic Lamborghini with customised player number advertising your title (PASTOR= PA570RR) then you are asking for trouble and really reckless and stupid.

Even the Archbishop of Canterbury wouldn’t do such. The British public would descend on him if he tried that, how much more this pastor Tobi. Ashimolowo of KICC faced investigations of similar incident in the past, lots of Pentecostal pastors have been under investigation over the way they operate their churches of charities. Pastor Tobi is no different and he should’ve learnt from the past and focus seriously on his calling if he truly was CALLED.

And here i am foolishly thinking the gullible ones reside only in Nigeria.

Seems living abroad, having better access to education in this internet age doesn't make people smarter.

This seems to be a Christian only phenomenon - taking advantage of gullible people's faith and believe to enrich pastors and church workers.

That stuff is more of a cult than a church.

Its attendees are mostly at-risk youth living in poor, ghettoised, high crime areas. They are already vulnerable and close to the edge which made it easier for that dude to exploit them to his nefarious ends

Absolutely! I attended KICC once in East london. The pastor was just preaching about money.. Donate, Donate, Donate! he said we should donate a £1000 each. After that day i never went back, Infact, I stopped going to church entirely.

What does he need 2 Range rovers For? They will seize his properties and them cars.

In Nigeria, abuse of power and dishonesty is very rampant. As such the Government cannot be trusted to supervise religion in anyway, particularly when some have been using same government to advance a religion.
