Pastor Idowu Iluyomade has been suspended as the Senior Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Region 20, City of David and Head of the Apapa Family of the Church for three months.

The cleric, popularly called Pastor ID, who has been asked to report to the headquarters of the Church at Ebute Metta, Lagos, has been replaced by Pastor Charles Kpandei of RCCG Resurrection Parish, the Region 11 Headquarters.

Although reasons for his suspension by the leadership of the RCCG were sketchy as at press time, sources said it may not be unconnected with the disaffection generated by the celebration of the 60th birthday of his wife, Pastor Siju, where popular singer, Flavour N’abania was among the musicians, who entertained guests from all walks of life.

The lavish party, held at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, by the lawyer and founder of the Arise Women Foundation as well as the Handmaidens Women in Leadership on February 18, was greeted with criticism, as it came days after the death of an influential member of the Church and founding Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings Plc, Herbert Wigwe.

Wigwe died along with his wife, Chizoba, their son, Chizi, former Chairman of Nigeria Exchange Group, Abimbola Ogunbanjo, the pilot and co-pilot, in a Di Airbus Helicopter EC 130B4 with registration number N130CZ, near Halloran Springs, California, on February 9.

The family of the Wigwes had shunned the City of David in the burial programme, as they held a combined Service of Songs at another parish of the Church in Lagos, RCCG, Resurrection Parish, Lekki, among other events in Lagos and Rivers states.
