The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has sacked one of his pastors, Gideon Bakare, who was caught on camera trying to sleep with a member’s wife in Akure, Ondo State.
Reacting in a statement on Wednesday, the RCCG spokesperson Olaitan Olubiyi said Pastor Bakare has been suspended for attempting adultery, and also accused him of putting the church in a bad light. The statement reads:
”The Redeemed Christian Church of God has excommunicated Mr Gideon Bakare and relieved him of all ministerial duties in the mission.
“Bakare, who was an Assistant Pastor in the Church was recently accused of attempted act of adultery with a woman in her matrimonial home in Akure, Ondo State.
“The Church dissociates itself from such immoral act of Mr Bakare and has described it as being completely contrary to the values, doctrines, beliefs and practices of the RCCG and the word of God.
“The Church, after reviewing the report of her investigation, noted that by his conduct, Bakare has not only tainted his personal reputation but has portrayed the Church in a bad light.
”Mr Bakare has, therefore, been directed to return all official items in his custody and stay off all associated connections with the mission with immediate effect.”
KanyiDaily had also reported how a 36-year-old Prophet, Temidayo Afolabi, was arrested for defiling a 13-year-old church member inside his office at Cherubim and Seraphim Church, in Lagos state.
