How RCCG Pastors scammed me after my husband died – Widow (photos)

A Nigerian widow, Ms Doris Uche Ogunmakin based abroad with her five year old son, has accused RCCG pastors of scamming her and her husband and then selling off their properties after his death.

According to Ms Ogunmakin, certain pastors heading the RCCG church she attends in the US borrowed a huge sum of money from her husband but after his death, they refused to pay her back.

Not only that, Ms Ogunmakin claimed that she and her late husband, Tolulope Ogunmakin, bought a property worth 45,000 Dollars (15 million Naira at the time) in River Park Estate, Lugbe, Abuja, through the pastors. However, after her husband’s death, they went behind her to allegedly sell the land and kept the money for themselves.

She said she’s been spending money on lawyers in the US so as to get back what is rightfully hers.

Ms Doris told LIB that one particular Pastor Bimbo Olushola and her husband Pastor Segun Olusola borrowed 60,000 Dollars from her husband before he died and asked him not to tell his wife.

She added that the couple “milked and sucked” her husband dry. She also said they made arrangements for him to marry Pastor Bimbo Olushola’s sister but their plans failed and Mr Ogunmakin married Doris instead. The bereaved widow said this is “because I suffered with my husband till he became someone.”

She further accused Bami Abigail Akinkunmi, who is an RCCG pastor, of allegedly selling her Abuja property after her husband’s death.
Bami Abigail is the mother-in-law of Pastor Olusegun Olusola.  According to Ms Doris, Pastor Olusegun Olusola encouraged her and her late husband to buy a property in Abuja with help from his mother-in-law. When they agreed to it, they transferred the money to Bami Abigail to make the transaction on their behalf since they weren’t in Nigeria. However, after Mr Ogunmakin’s death, Ms Bami Abigail allegedly sold the property, according to Doris Ogunmakin.

Doris told LIB: “We wired the money to her and she claimed she bought the property and refused to release the documents or even show the place to my husband.  When his health started getting bad she sold the property when my husband died without my permission although I requested for those documents rather she sent threats.”

The bereaved widow reported the incident to  Pastor James O. Fadel and Pastor AdeGrace Okorende, who are the pastors in charge of RCCG in Dallas, Texas, where she worships, and she said they did nothing about it.

She told LIB: “Pastor Ade Okorende and Pastor Fadel, I reported to them as the G.O here in America. They promised to get these resolved but since they are somehow related, they decided not to do anything on this matter.”

Below are documents to back up her claims:
