In response to the recent development that resulted in the sacking of the Chaplain of the Chapel of Christ The Light, Alausa, Ikeja-Lagos. The Head of the African Church, Ifako Diocese, Rt. Rev. Michael Adeyemi has indicated that the church had expressed displeasure with the way the Lagos state government had handled the matter.
In an interview with PUNCH, the Bishop indicated that the sacked Chaplain was a respectable, disciplined and humble person. He also said he had worshipped with the Chaplain a few times and thus had a good measure of his character.
He further added that this is evident in the way the members of the chapel treats him as reflected in the way the members rallied round him during his sacking to provide him with an accommodation and consequently write the government to rescind the decision made to sack him.
He also said that if the Chaplain was a serial offender as claimed, the Church should at least have been served a notice before his eventual sacking and that the first point of call would be to inform the church council so he could be called to order.
He referred to the actions taken by the Government as ungodly most especially as it was carried out in the regime of someone who is supposedly a Christian, indicating that the fear of God is missing in the hearts of the people behind the Chaplain’s sacking.
