For allegedly attempting to sleep with a woman in her matrimonial home in Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria, an Assistant Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church Of God, Gideon Bakare, has been shown the way out of the mission.
Aside sacking the pastor, the RCCG equally stripped Pastor Gideon Bakare of all ministerial duties in the mission.
It would be recalled that Pastor Gideon Bakare was accused of attempting to sleep with a woman in her matrimonial home in Akure.
According to a viral video, Pastor Gideon Bakare, was said to have been seen naked as the church member sat beside him while her family took the video recording of the event.
The woman had particularly pointed accusing fingers at Pastor Gideon Bakare of wanting to sleep with her, as the cleric begs for mercy.
In a statement issued by its Head, Media, and Public Relations, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, on Thursday (today), the RCCG which dissociated itself from the immoral act, described same as “completely contrary to the core values, doctrines, beliefs and practices of the RCCG and the undiluted word of God.”
Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi added that, “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.”
Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi however declared that Pastor Gideon Bakare could file an appeal against the decision of the church if he was not satisfied.
