Pastor William Kumuyi, the General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, has warned church members and the general public against donating money to a fictitious Facebook account bearing his name and photograph.
The announcement was made on behalf of the 76-year-old church leader during worship service on Sunday.
The church revealed that some unscrupulous persons had opened social media accounts, one of which is a Facebook account, soliciting money from members of the public, purportedly “for the work of God.”
In the announcement, the church was categorical in its denial, saying the church does not even print envelopes for non-members to contribute towards any church project, much less coming on the worldwide web to ask for donations.
“We hereby urge church members and the general public to disregard such solicitations, as they’re meant to dent the image of the church and that of our revered pastor,” the announcer said.
