The Redeemed Christ Church of God (RCCG) has dismissed one of her pastors in Akure, the capital of Ondo state identified as Gideon Bakare after being caught while trying to sleep with a member’s wife.
WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that a shocking and scandalous situation has occurred, involving a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG ZONE 6 Akure), Pastor Bakare who was caught attempting to sleep with a married woman, right inside her husband’s house.
This dismissal notice was contained in a statement released by the RCCG spokesperson identified as Olaitan Olubiyi on Wednesday, July 8.
WITHIN NIGERIA gathered that the pastor, Bakare was suspended for attempting adultery.
The pastor was also accused of putting the church in a bad light.
The statement read;
“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 dissociated itself from such immoral act of Mr Bakare and described it as being 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 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.”
