It was gathered that Kpandei resumed at the City of David on Sunday, June 2, and was given a cold welcome.

,“Those in the City of David had been expecting Pastor Kpandei. Some top RCCG officials had to meet with some top people in the parish and confided in them that Pastor Idowu would have to be removed from the parish.

“They needed to get the confidence of these top people because of the great influence of pastor Iluyomade in the parish. The RCCG was not sure of the outcome of its move, so it had to be discreet. He may not be returned to the parish after the suspension.

“We have just three months to the convention. It may be a way of taking him away from the place permanently. He has spent many years in that parish. He needed to be moved, ” Church Times quoted source.

Iluyomade was suspended for three months by the Governing Council of the church. A panel has also been set up to investigate some of the allegations against him and the parish.
