The General Overseer was in a bitter 26-year-old land dispute with the Ubeji Community in Warri South Council Area of Delta State, until the Supreme Court ruled in his favour, reaffirming he is the bonafide owner of the 7-acre piece of land. Father’s House Bible Church, Warri was built on that land.
