The leadership of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has sacked an Assistant Pastor of the church in Akure, Ondo State, Mr Gideon Bakare.



The church also relieved him of all ministerial duties in the mission.

It should be noted that the sacked pastor was recently accused of attempting to sleep with a woman in her matrimonial home in Akure, which goes viral on social media via a video last week, the pastor is seen naked as the church member sits beside him while her family films the event.The woman, in the video, accuses Bakare of wanting to sleep with her, as the cleric begs for mercy.

However, the RCCG, in a statement by the Head, Media, and Public Relations, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, on today (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.

Bakare was a part-time pastor with the church, adding that his family was also devastated by the incident.

Meanwhile, the relieved pastor is a part time pastor and also a senior civil servant in the Ondo State Civil Service. He had been allegedly pestering the woman for a relationship, as she decided to play along and set him up, he had removed his clothes while with the woman at her house when her family members came in.

Olubiyi said despite the church’s decision, Bakare could still attend any of the ministry’s parishes.

“The church is open to everybody. But the only thing is that he can no longer hold any position of responsibility in the church,” he added.

In the meantime, according to the RCCG principle which was confirmed by the spokesperson, Bakare could appeal the decision of the church if he was not satisfied.
