Popular Celestial Church pastor, Prophet Israel Ogundipe who was sent to jail for fraud, Celebrates Glorious Return after being released – Watch Video

Prophet Israel Ogundipe, the Senior Shepherd-in-Charge of the Celestial Church of Christ, Genesis Global, has regained freedom.

Prophet Ogundipe was spotted leading praise and worship in video shared on the Instagram page of the church. According to The PUNCH, Ogundipe was granted a conviction bail by the Court of Appeal in Lagos after considering issues of his health condition on April 1.

Recall that Ghgossip reported that the popular prophet was sentenced to one-year imprisonment by Justice Olabisi Akinlade after he was charged with seven counts charges bordering on fraud and obtaining money by false pretenses.

According to reports, Ogundipe defrauded a London based architect, Mrs Oladele Williams-Oni and the amount involved was a whooping N17 million between August 30, 2002 and 2005.

Justice Akinlade sentences the prophet to one-year imprisonment and ordered him to pay a sum of N11m to the complainant when he was found guilty.

However, Ogundipe through his counsel Babatunde Ogala reached out to the appeal court for bail pending, the hearing of the appeal and a means to retract his conviction.

His counsel contended that his client was diabetic and could not go by the strict diet and the constant specialised medical care in custody.

Delivering the ruling, Justice Abudullhai Bayero said,

“There are criteria for granting a convict bail. These include that the applicant must be a first-time offender or have a serious health condition.

“The applicant seeking bail pending appeal before the court is a first-time offender and he has also shown to the court that he is having hypertension, peptic ulcer, unending malaria, and diabetes, which are serious health conditions.”
