The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has sacked Gideon Bakare, the assistant pastor caught trying to have sex with a married woman in a viral video.
Bakare was filmed sitting half naked with a woman, said to be a church member’s wife, in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
His sack was announced in a statement by Olaitan Olubiyi, Spokeman of RCCG, on Wednesday.
“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 statement read.
“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.”
