Pastor Iluyomade In Big Trouble

That Redeemed Christian Church of God’s City of David Parish Pastor, Idowu Iluyomade has been suspended is an established fact.

Be that as it may, Pastor Charles Kpandei who replaced him resumed at the parish on Sunday.

Insiders told us that the parish is being audited by a notable audit firm amid an alleged N320 million debt, following the suspension of Iluyomade on June 1, 2024.

Iluyomade was suspended for three months by the church’s Governing Council after a panel was constituted to investigate the allegations against him and the parish.

He was asked to resume at the church’s headquarters after the suspension.

The embattled pastor, fondly called PID, received a letter of his suspension two weeks ago and was immediately replaced by Kpandei of the church’s Resurrection Parish Region 11.

Iluyomade has been in the eyes of the storm following the elaborate 60th birthday of his wife, Siju, shortly after the death of the then Chief Executive Officer of Access Bank, Herbert Wigwe, who was a prominent member of his church.

We gathered that the pastor was suspended on two issues bordering on the audit of the church and the alleged resistance by the pastor to be transferred from the parish.

During the church announcement, one of the pastors stated that the church paid about N15 million for the construction of the Trinity Tower between June 1 and 8. The pastor also revealed that the parish had an outstanding N320 million debt.
