“The church, after reviewing the report of its investigation, noted that by his conduct, Bakare has not only tainted his personal reputation but has portrayed the Church in a bad light,’’ RCCG said in a statement on Thursday.
The church, according to the statement by Head, Media, and Public Relations, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, also relieved Bakare of all ministerial duties in the mission.
It said that the behavior was “completely contrary to the core values, doctrines, beliefs and practices of the RCCG and the undiluted word of God.”
