How RCCG pastors plotted Adeboye’s removal

Facts have emerged as to how the former General Overseer of Redeemed, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, was removed from office.

Aside from the FRCN law that led to Adeboye’s ouster, some fresh revelations show some RCCG pastors plotted his ouster.

The plot was exploited by the loophole in the FRCN law, which the FG had requested its implementation be delayed.

According to RCCG sources, one of the pastors sacked from the church stoked the embers that removed Adeboye.

One of the sacked pastors happens to be the Executive Secretary/Chief Executive Officer of FRCN, Pastor Jim Obazee.

Recall that the President has since removed Pastor Obazee as the head of FRCN.

Obazee was one of the top pastors in RCCG. In fact, he rose to the rank of a Zonal Pastor.

The church claimed they discovered Obazee wasn’t handling church finances accordingly.

He was severally invited to explain his side of the story. He refused meeting with the Church Leadership.

Following this, he was dismissed as a pastor of RCCG.

A furious Obazee went back to his office and enforced the FRCN law that threw religious circles into confusion.
