In the early hours of the 1st of January Holy Ghost service, held at the Redeemed Camp ground of the Redeemed Christian Church of God popularly known as the RCCG, a close circuit television exposed a man who stole envelopes containing money inside the tithe and offering box in the old auditorium of the camp. It has also exposed several other people doing odious things on the camp.
This was disclosed by the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye during the January 2020 Holy Ghost service of the church at the 3 by 3 kilometer auditorium of the church. Adeboye who seized the opportunity of the holy ghost service to announce to the congregation that the Redemption Camp now has CCTV cameras planted at every juncture of the camp ground, said since the cameras were inaugurated, they had exposed many terrible things going on in the camp.
He said he was shown a clip on the CCTV of a man who went to take envelopes in the tithe and offering box in the old auditorium of the camp. In his words, Adeboye explained;
“The man got to the auditorium, checked right and left and found out that nobody was around. Unknown to him the CCTV camera was recording what he was doing. He took the envelopes in the box and stuffed them in his pocket. By the time he was about escaping with the envelopes, a motorbike from the CCTV center caught up with him and he was apprehended. Initially he wanted to resist arrest because he claimed to have done nothing. But by the time they searched his pockets they discovered several envelops including tithe, first fruit and offering envelops with money in his pocket. He could not argue again.”
The RCCG G.O said he was shown another recording where a young man broke into a car on the camp site and began to take things from the car. Before he could escape with what he stole from the car a bike man from the CCTV center caught up with him. He then told the congregation he was mandated to tell the congregation that there is a CCTV camera on the Redemption Camp that records things done in every nook and cranny of the camp.
“You all know that there are angels watching over us on camp. But I have been asked to tell you that there is a CCTV camera on the camp which records all that is going on in the camp. It is part of the requirement of the law that we announce the presence of such equipment. So you can’t afford to misbehave on camp. Every car that comes into the camp is being recorded and all activities even in the dark as long as they are being done on the camp is being recorded” He said.
