The General Superintendent of the #Assemblies of God Church Nigeria, Rev. Dr Chidi Okoroafor, has been sacked over an alleged affair with a woman based in the US.
Okoroafor was found guilty of having an affair with a woman identified as Mrs Maurrissal Nwosu by a panel headed by Rev Isaac Mpamugo, former Lagos District Superintendent and subsequently dismissed after the panel submitted its report.
The General Superintendent whose dismissal was announced yesterday March 6, during the church’s General Committee emergency sitting, was accused of going against Biblical principles and the Bye-Laws and constitution of Assemblies of God Nigeria.
He has been ordered to hand over all Assemblies of God properties in his possession while Rev Ejikeme Ejim has also been been appointed as the Acting General Superintendent of the church.
It was reported that a top member of the church who confirmed the incident, insisted that Okoroafor 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.”
