The Redeemed Christ Church Of God (RCCG) has sacked one of its Pastors in Akure, the capital of Ondo state after allegedly trying to sleep with a member.
The Pastor identified as Gideon Bakare was allegedly caught trying to sleep with a member and filmed. The video which was released online went viral within a very short space of time.
The RCCG, in a statement by the Head, Media, and Public Relations, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, on Thursday, said the church dissociated itself from the immoral act.
He described it as “completely contrary to the core values, doctrines, beliefs and practices of the RCCG and the undiluted word of God.”
“THE CHURCH, AFTER REVIEWING THE REPORT OF ITS 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,” THE STATEMENT ADDED.
