Yesterday, a story alleging that the pastor of a popular church, Anselm Madubuko of the Revival Assembly confessed to an adulterous affair with a church member broke online via TheNetNG.
Since then, prominent church members including Kenny St Best and Paul Obazele who are long-term members of the church have spoken out to refute the scandalous claims.
The lady at the centre of the story, Kikelomo Akinkumi has also shared her side of the story via an exclusive statement released to website – Gossip Boyz. She rejects the adultery claims and explains that she was a member of the church’s prayer department but was suspended from the church for undisclosed reasons along with other members of her department.
I really do not know where all these stories are coming from.. People have been calling me asking about this story and why I haven’t been in church for sometime. Yes I was suspended from church! But adultery? It was never about adultery; I was suspended from church but I wasn’t the only one who was suspended. I am in the prayer department of my church and the HOD of that department was also suspended. The church decided to suspend us because of reasons best known to them. The thing is, that department was suspended including my pastor who heads the department”
I have made up my mind never to attend that church again, because the church of God does not belong to any man but God. I believe no Man of God has the right to tell members of the church not to come to church again. I have spoken to Pastor Anselm and in his word, he would sue anyone carrying false story about him confessing to adultery, they must apologize to all parties mentioned…It didn’t happen! Thank you.”
