Dr. Igbeneghu was a head pastor in a local Foursquare Gospel Church as and when the scandal broke but in a statement issued Monday evening by the National Secretary, Rev Ikechukwu Ugbaja, the church said it has asked him to step down from all ministerial assignments, promising to take “appropriate measures” as soo as investigations were concluded.
“The general public is hereby informed that as a holiness and Bible-believing Church, we do not condone such heinous and unscriptural act among our ministers,” the church said.
“We totally dissociate ourselves from the purported conduct of Dr. Igbenoghu and promise to take appropriate measure as soon as the ongoing investigation is concluded.
“Meanwhile, the pastor in question has been asked to step down from all ministerial assignments.
Thank you all.
