…Church ex-communicates Bakare, declares him persona non grata…he has put church in bad light
Adulterous Redeemed Christian Church of God pastor, Gideon Bakare, has been stripped of the office of pastor for his moral depravity.
He has also been declared a persona-non grata by the authorities and asked to stay away from the church.
Bakare, an Assistant Pastor of RCCG in Akure, Ondo State capital, had, like a thief in the night, stormed the matrimonial home of a member of the church to whom he had made love overtures to satisfy his sexual needs.
He was caught in the act as the woman set him up for her husband to apprehend him.
Pastor Olusola Bakare’s combo picture as caught pants down went viral in the social media last week.
Bakare had already stripped in the bedroom of the married woman, as learnt, while the woman pretended to be consenting to the sexual act
She had asked the pastor to strip before opening the door for her husband and others to come in to capture him live on video.
In a statement, RCCG spokesperson, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi said Bakare was sacked for attempted adultery and for putting the church in a bad light.
It reads: “The Redeemed Christian Church of God has ex-communicated 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 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.”
