According to Olaitan Olubiyi, RCCG’s spokesperson, Bakare was caught in a viral video with a married woman in her matrimonial home.
Olubiyi pointed out that the pastor was seen in a very compromising position with the said woman, and as such, he has been excommunicated from the church, The Cable reports.
In a statement released on Wednesday July 8, He was also accused of putting the church in a bad light.
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 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.”
