Just In: Bishop Okuyelu Suspended Over Carnal Knowledge With Alleged Prostitute
Bishop Ebenezer Okuyelu, whose masturbating clip with an unnamed prostitute was released recently has been suspended to a one-year sabbatical.
The suspension is expected to effect from August 15th 2022 and lasted to August 15th 2023.
Okuyelu who until his suspension, was the Bishop of Osun North East Diocese was suspended based on the allegation that he was having carnal knowledge with an unnamed prostitute.
The lady who filmed him during a whatssap sex-chat also demanded a sum of 10,000,000 million so as to not release the clip.
A source said Okuyelu had paid a part of the money and this has left him to deprived workers of their remunerations.
However, when Okuyelu couldn’t pay the rest, the lady in question released the clip on the social media, the source quoted.
Worthy of note, PIJAlance reported that the clip was also obtained by our correspondent.
In the light of this, Osun North East youths staged several protest decrying the act and demanding his immediate suspension, PIJAlance Magazine, reported.
