President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Dr Samson Ayokunle has denied the membership of arrested pastor of the Whole Bible Believers Church, Pastor Josiah Asumosa and his assistant in Ondo state.
This was disclosed in a statement by the president’s assistant on media and communication, Pastor Adebayo Oladeji on Tuesday.
Abebayo said “Though, the Pastor in question and his church, the whole Bible Believers Church, in Ondo are not members of the Christian Association of Nigeria at all levels and so, He is not known to us, but the fact that the Church necessitates that we state our position on his practice.
“We are therefore calling on the Police to thoroughly investigate him and his activities with a view to prosecuting him and his cohorts if there had been any infringement on the law of Nigeria and the Rights of the members in his custody.
“CAN, therefore commends the Police for their prompt actions which included rescuing over 70 victims from the church premises.
“They should further be subjected to medical check ups since nobody knows what they were going through where they were camped.
“We hereby urge all denominations to keep an eye on pastor’s under them towards ensuring wholesome biblical conduct.
“Members of the churches all over the nation are enjoined bro cross-check every teaching from the Bible before believing it.”
