Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, Leader of LoveWorld Incorporated, better known as Christ Embassy, suspends his nephew, Daysman Oyakhilome.
The clergyman relieved his nephew of his position over what he describes as acts of "gross misconduct."
Pastor Chris made this known during worship on Sunday.
Nigerians have speculated that Daysman's alleged involvement with APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, could have been the reason for his suspension.
Daysman is to undergo spiritual rehabilitation while still on suspension.
Pastor Chris stated:
"Dr Daysman Oyakhilome Woghiren, the president of Loveworld Next and Loveworld Innovation, is hereby removed from being the Loveworld president and Loveworld Innovation and also suspended from all official roles for act of misconduct.
"So he no longer handles any of that and I am placing him under spiritual rehabilitation. He has to go through spiritual rehabilitation programme from now with immediate effect"
