Contractor ‘Lewis Ihama’ Seeks Arrest of Pastors of Winners Chapel
A contractor, Lewis Ihama has petitioned the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris over the alleged injustice meted on him by three pastors of the Living Faith Church, aka Winners Chapel.
In the petition, a copy of which was made available to our correspondent, the contractor alleged that the pastors had refused to pay him after he had nearly completed a project for the church at Ozuoba community in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
He said that his company handled the building of the worship auditorium of the church at N120 million but the church had only paid him N49 million.
Ihama who is currently demanding the immediate arrest and prosecution of three pastors of the church said that his company had built the church to roofing stage and would need money to complete it but the pastors in charge of the project had refused to pay.
“Instead, they arrested me and when the police carried out their investigation, they discovered that the pastors were culpable,” he said.
However, none of the three pastors had been arrested by the police not to talk of prosecuting them.
Ihama said that his company had earlier petitioned the State Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Zaki but no action was taken to arrest the culprits.
When our correspondent visited the church, it was gathered that the pastors in charge of the project had been transferred while those presently in charge refused to comment.
