The presiding Bishop and general overseer of living faith churches worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo has been asked to pay N2 billion over the death of a 3 year old girl Imienfan Omokaro who got drowned at Kingdom Heritage Model School operated by Winners Chapel in Benin.
Imienfan was said to have drowned in a drum of water placed in the school toilet on November 1,2012 in Benin. A letter written by Omokaro’s Counsel, Prince Peter E. Uwadiae-Igbinigie and, dated November 28, 2012 and made available to journalists in Benin, explained that the amount was “for the callous and senseless killing of our client’s daughter, Miss Imienfan Omokaro.”
Mr. Omokaro’s lawyers want Kingdom Heritage Model School to tender unreserved apology in three national newspapers, warning that if the demands were not met within 14 days, “we have the irrevocable instructions of our client to commence legal action against the school (Kingdom Heritage Model School) and Church (Winners Chapel) without any further correspondence from this Chambers.”
The little girl was a KG 1 student, sources say that the school authorities did not inform the mother of the girl about the death until late in the evening. A source who pleaded anonymity stated that the school authorities had kept the girl for over an hour praying for her, before finally taking her to Irowa Hospital in Benin, where she was confirmed dead.
