The Church's Leadership needs to close down this particular parish and also put it out to the Media that disciplinary action has been taken. Those are the ways to redeem the Church's name. I love C.C.C. so much, so this evil news hurt me so much."

Meanwhile, in 2015, Legit.ng reported that the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) through its provincial headquarters on Lagos Island cancelled a three-day outdoor crusade of one of its parishes.

The cancellation came after the criticism that followed the invitation of the Fuji musician Wasiu Alabi Pasuma as a guest artist for the crusade.

Pasuma's picture appeared on the handbill advert alongside the gospel singer Tope Alabi and a former band leader of the late Fela Anikulapo's Egypt 80 band, Kereke Jike.
