Not Confirmed: How true? Reports say David Oyedepo has been barred from the UK

Unconfirmed reports say that founder of the Living Faith church founder, Pastor David Oyedepo has been barred from entering the United Kingdom.
A source at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport told ‘ThisisAfrica’, that Oyedepo’s barring was communicated to airlines via an ‘Airline Alert’ on Saturday, 9 August. The alert stated that any airline that acts against the ban will be fined £2000 (N542,000).
According to a recent Daily Mail and Guardian report, an inquiry by the UK Charitable Commission accused the UK branch of Winners Chapel of cynically exploiting supporters.
In addition to the report of Oyedepo’s barring on ‘ThisisAfrica’, there was also a photo of the alleged ‘Airline alert’.
Daily Mail’s report stated that the church received £16.7 million (N4.5 billion) in donations from followers who were told that God would give them riches in return’ and that ‘Followers are ferried in double-decker shuttle buses to the church, handed slips inviting them to make debit card payments, and are even told obeying the ministry’s teachings will make them immune from illness’.
David O. Oyedepo is reputed to be the richest pastor in Nigeria. He is the senior pastor of Faith Tabernacle, a 50,000 seat church auditorium, reported to be the largest church auditorium in the world by the Guinness Book of Records.
