The new occupant of a building once used by Celestial Church of Christ, Oluwa Olubukun Transmission Parish built by Monday John Odiye, the popular Transmission who was popularly referred to as ‘Governor of Ikeja, is facing an insurmountable challenge of making appropriate use of the church from the first day of acquiring the property from Monday Odiye who sold the church when he got converted as Redeemed member.
The building situated at 25 Shola Martins New Oko-Oba area of Lagos has been taken over by a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God for about 15 years, well that is not the story here, but the curiosity of inhabitants of the street which also have other RCCG parishes around was drawn to the scanty attendance of worshipers in the said parish, which cannot be compared with any other Church of the same family within the vicinity.
The most unbelievable news coming from the building housing the Parish is that of Celestial Church worship song,’JerimoYaMah’ which is always audibly heard every Sunday morning during the service of RCCG at exactly few minutes past 10. This occurrence, which sources say has been brought to the ears of the authority of RCCG, has left everyone from both sides speechless.
It is believed that the governing body of RCCG has instructed that the parish should move out of the place and return the property back to CCC. It was gathered that the present occupant experiencing this mysterious encounter contacted the shepherd that last headed the Transmission Parish, Sup. Evang. Xtopher Gbagidi who was said to have prayed and sanctify the worship centre for RCCG then the JerimoYaMah song seems to have stopped. However, in a telephone conversation with the Shepherd, Oluso Gbagidi said he never went there to pray for them as rumnoured but he was intimated about RCCG’s plan to return the church to its original owner.
Celestialnewsonline (CNO) visited the place last Sunday, it was discovered that the dove logo of RCCG is still very visible on the walls of the building but it’s not really established if RCCG still operates that branch of the church because of the unpalatable experience.
As people are left wondering what the mystery is all about, we feel from the look of things, it seems clear that it is only Celestial Church of Christ alone that can conveniently operate a church service from the property since the owner who sold it went against the doctrine of the church and sold without the authorization of the Headquarters of the church to offset his indebtedness to some financial institutions then.
