    Assemblies of God leadership tussle: Okoroafor floors Emeka in court














      Dr Chidi Okoroafor has been confirmed the authentic general superintendent of Assemblies of God Church.

    Justices Paul Adamu Galinje, Ejembi Eko, Kudirat Motonmori Olatokunbo Kekere-Ekun and Clara Ogunbiyi, all ruled in favour of the church, delivering the judgement Friday, February 24.
    With the judgement, the court has affirmed the sack of  Reverend Paul Emeka.

    Vicnuel recall that Emeka was first suspended by the General Council of the church and was later expelled and he approached the Enugu state High Court where he got a judgment in his favour.
    The church’s general council appealed the judgment of the high court and won.
     Not satisfied, Emeka went to the supreme court to challenge the appeal court judgement with the argument that his fundamental rights had been trampled on by the church.

    He lost as the justices unanimously upheld the ruling of the appellate court.
