Popular Nigerian pastor sacked over attempted adultery, the church has said.
The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Akure, Ondo state capital, has sacked Pastor Gideon Bakare.
Pastor Gideon Bakare’s dismissal comes after being caught while trying to have sex with a member’s wife.
Gideon Bakare was an assistant pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG)
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 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.”
A video surfaced at the weekend which showed Pastor Bakare stripped in the bedroom of a married female church member in Akure
