If you still haven’t gotten a grasp, let us fill you in on the gist: There’s a video clip of Bishop David Oyedepo which has gone viral on Twitter, courtesy of Kayode Ogundamisi, a blogger. In the footage which lasts a little over a minute, the General Overseer of the Winners Chapel can be seen speaking to a young woman who kneels before the alter. And in an instant, he slaps the girl across the face, while still speaking.
It is not very clear what the conversation was, but there are a lot of speculations that the young woman is a witch and she was being given ‘deliverance slaps’. There have been a few interesting reactions on Twitter:
@sheytu: Annointed SLAP by Bishop Oyedepo!!! Izzokay!!
@amasonic: The First Twitter War of today is over: Lekki Toll Gate Protests. The Second War is on: Pastor Oyedepo’s slapping. There will be blood

@Griffinstreaks: The various pastors will now start issuing ‘Deliverance Slaps’ in their respective churches. Why? cause Daddy Oyedepo did the same thing.
