Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has revealed reasons for excommunicating Pastor Bakare from his ministerial duties.
This is coming after a viral video where Pastor Gideon Bakare was caught in a compromising position with the wife of one of the members of the church in Akure. The clergyman was caught sitting half naked with the married woman.
Reacting to the incident, RCCG has excommunicated Pastor Bakare on grounds of attempted adultery which paints the church in a bad light.
This was contained in a statement released by RCCG spokesperson, Olaitan Olubiyi.
“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 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.”
