Gideon Olusola Bakare, a Pastor of a Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Akure, Ondo state capital, has been excommunicated after being caught while trying to sleep with a member’s wife.
Pastor Olusola Bakare made headlines over the weekend after he was caught in the act and after another victim exposed him in an exclusive chat with Kemi Filani News.
“…I thought he had changed after I quit the church because of him years ago but seeing the viral video made me disappointed…..my parents and I quit RCCG and now 9 years after I am shocked to find out that RCCG took no action on the report sent out on him then to the headquarters.”” the source revealed to Kemi Filani News.
The RCCG has now reacted.
In a statement released by RCCG spokesperson Olaitan Olubiyi on Wednesday July 8, it was gathered that Bakare was suspended for attempting adultery. He 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.”
