The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has revealed one of its Pastors was excommunicated for attempted adultery.
The church took the decision to excommunicate him after the Pastor, identified as Gideon Bakare was seen in a compromising position with a wife of a member in a compromising video.
The Cable reported that the incident happened in Akure, Ondo state.
Revealing the decision of the church, the RCCG spokesperson, Olaitan Olubiyi in a statement said the incidence has put a dent on the Church.
The Statement reads, “The Redeemed Christian Church of God has excommunicated Mr Gideon Bakare and relieved him of all ministerial duties in the Mission,” the statement read.
“Bakare, who was an Assistant Pastor in the Church was recently accused of an attempted act of adultery with a woman in her matrimonial home in Akure, Ondo State.
“The Church dissociated itself from such an 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.”
