6 Lighthouse ex-pastors demand $12m dollar settlement. 

Details are emerging as to how the six former pastors of Lighthouse Chapel International (LCI) allegedly demanded a whopping $12 Million as a settlement from the church.

The Ex-pastors are Bishop Larry Odonkor, Bishop Oko Mensah, Rev. Edward Laryea, Pastor Seth Duncan, Pastor Edem Amankwah and Pastor Faith Makafui Fiakojo.

On 3rd August 2021, which was the last adjourned date of the trial, the presiding Judge – Justice Frank Aboagye Rockson repeated an earlier suggestion he had made to the parties to settle the matter amicably.

Counsel for LCI, Rodney Heward-Mills then dropped the bombshell which left the court in shock. He revealed that some eminent clergymen had earlier approached both parties to settle the matter out of court and that during the settlement talks the ex-pastors demanded a whopping sum of $12 Million USD as settlement from the church and took an entrenched position on their demand. He continued that the senior clergymen found the demand so outrageous that they abandoned any hope of settling the matter.

Counsel for the ex-pastors, Kofi Bentil initially stood up to deny that his clients made such a demand but later added that even if they did demand the $12 Million USD it did not matter.

The plaintiffs are seeking the following reliefs against the church:
a. An order compelling LCI to pay their unpaid SSNIT contributions.

b. b. An order to compute and pay balance of salary due them.

c. Compensation to cover: some investments plaintiffs made in schools and churches of the LCI, for rental of cars while in the service of LCI and for monies they spent on accommodation while in the employment of LCI.

d. General damages for: breach of contract and the pain, unfair termination of contract, suffering caused as a result of bad treatment of plaintiffs during the period of their employment and loss of income by their spouses during transfers.

LCI has vehemently denied all the allegations and mounted their defense to the suit.
