Megachurch Pastor Okotie Shows Off Baubles, Reportedly Buys $750,000 Rolls Royce

According to a range of African news sources, Nigerian celebrity pastor and televangelist Chris Okotie likes to drive around in style. He allegedly already owned a Mercedes S600, a Hummer, and a Porsche, but now he’s upping the ante, reports Sunday Punch.

The Pastor of the Household of God Church International, Chris Okotie, recently bought a Rolls Royce Coupe, the 2014 Bespoke Edition, to mark his 30 years as born-again Christian and 27 years as a pastor.

According to Okotie’s close aide, the pastor spent N120m [$753,000] on the luxury car and had earlier spent N33m [$207,000] on a Range Rover Autobiography to mark a milestone of his church.

I couldn’t find footage of the good reverend’s latest automotive purchases, but here he is boasting about his Italian silk shirt, his Louis Vuitton shoes, and his Franck Muller watch:

The thrice-married pastor last made headlines a few weeks ago, when he said that Catholics will all be going to hell (“they are not Christians and never have been”), and that Pope Francis is the Antichrist.
