Authorities at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Ijapo Estate, Akure, Ondo State, who released a statement have insisted that Appeal Court Judge, Folayemi Omoleye, assaulted its Pastors.
Recall that days ago, it was reported that Justice Folayemi Omoleye, whose home is near the church, reportedly forced her way into its premises during a mid-week service last week and assaulted the pastors on the grounds that the noise from the church was disturbing her.
The RCCG who insisted that the Appeal Court Judge assaulted its Pastors, countered claims made by an alleged personal assistant of the Judge.
The church’s head of Media and Public Relations, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, further disclosed that the church had received a petition from the judge over noise and disturbance from the church and the petition was being addressed.
It read in parts;
“The regrettable events of June 5, 2019 cannot be swept away in such a cavalier manner.
The RCCG (Glory Tabernacle) has been on the location for about 30 years and it is a fully air-conditioned church without any external loud speaker, so complaint of noise does not arise and can be verified by anyone who desires to visit and worship with us there.
Before the incident, the judge had sent a petition in which she complained of noise and disturbance, an issue the church was already addressing. The pastor in charge had already scheduled a meeting with her prior to the incident.”
