Chaplain evicted by Ambode gets free furnished apartment, four more offers

Less than 48 hours after Lagos State Governor Akinwumi Ambode, evicted Venerable Femi Taiwo, Chaplain, Chapel of Christ the Light, in Alausa, the cleric has been blessed with a fully furnished apartment.

Taiwo, who was sacked without any query or official reason, was ordered to exit his official quarters where he lived with his wife and two children within 24 hours.

Pleas from church leaders and elders failed to save the cleric, who still had two years to spend as the presiding chaplain.

Taiwo had allegedly angered the governor’s wife, Bolanle Ambode, who had visited the chapel on Sunday, May 14, when the church held an anointing service.

It was gathered that Taiwo has now settled into a new and furnished accommodation provided by members of his congregation.

Taiwo told Punch that he got five offers of apartment from different members of the African church congregation.

A source disclosed that church members who were angered and touched by the way the priest was treated decided to help the cleric and his family.

“Apart from the apartment he moved to, he got four offers of apartment from different members of the African church congregation,” the source said.
