Rev. Dr Chidi Okoroafor, the General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God Church, has been suspended and dismissed.
We gathered that Dr. Okoroafor was dismissed as a Minister after the leadership of the church considered a report of his alleged immoral relationship with a United States, US, based woman, Mrs Maurrissal Nwosu.
Okoroafor’s dismissal was announced during Assemblies of God Church’s General Committee emergency sitting on Friday.
The investigative panel headed by a former Lagos District Superintendent, Rev Isaac Mpamugo, was said to have established an immoral relationship between the former General Superintendent and Mrs Nwosu which it said was contrary to Biblical principles and the Constitution and Bye-Laws of Assemblies of God Nigeria.
Dr Chidi Okoroafor was directed to hand over all Assemblies of God properties in his possession.
A member of the church told Daily Post that the former General Superintendent of the Church was not given a fair hearing.
He said: “Yes, our boss, the GS has been suspended, though he was not given fair hearing, even the woman at the centre of it all was not invited. But he has accepted it, he has handed everything to God.”
It was gathered that Rev Ejikeme EJim would take over as Acting General Superintendent of the Church.
