How Appeal Court judge assaulted, abused our pastors – RCCG



Popular Pentecostal church, Redeemed Christian Church of God, Ijapo Estate, Akure, Ondo State, has insisted   Justice Folayemi  Omoleye of the Court of Appeal  assaulted its  pastors.

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.

A  statement by  the  church’s head of Media and Public Relations, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi,  RCCG  said the statement issued by the person who claimed to be the personal assistant to the judge about the incident  was not true.

Olubiyi said the church had received a petition  from the judge over noise and disturbance from the church and the petition was being addressed.

The statement read,  “It is unfortunate to read a  statement  by one Julius Olasusi, who claimed to be the personal assistant to Justice Omoleye in which he described the widely reported assault as fake news. The said  release is not only untrue, it was also unnecessary.

“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.”
