PM News is reporting that Winners Chapel Owner, Bishop David Oyedepo, has been asked to pay N2 billion within 14 days for the death of three-year-old Imienfan Omokaro who got drowned at Kingdom Heritage Model School operated by Winners Chapel in Benin.
The amount is said to be “for the callous and senseless killing of our client’s daughter, Miss Imienfan Omokaro.” The was said by Omokaro’s Counsel, Prince Peter E. Uwadiae-Igbinigie. In addition, Mr. Omokaro’s lawyers want Kingdom Heritage Model School to tender unreserved apology in three national newspapers, warning that if the demands were not met within 14 days, “we have the irrevocable instructions of our client to commence legal action against the school (Kingdom Heritage Model School) and Church (Winners Chapel) without any further correspondence from this Chambers.”
Imienfan Omokaro, a KG I pupil of Kingdom Heritage Model School, was said to have drowned in a drum of water in a toilet in the school on November 1, 2012, and it is said that teachers did not inform the mother when the incident happened.
School authorities are alleged to have kept the girl for more than an hour, praying for her instead of seeking medical attention. She was finally taked to Irowa Hospital in Benin, where she was confirmed dead.
